Rated 4 out of 5 by BTFitch does what it's supposed to
I've had this for about a month now, and used it several times, mostly on old set-in stains, it works great! Usually when I have my carpets professionally cleaned the stains come back after a few months so we'll see what happens with this (I'll let you know). But, so far, I love it! It's easy to use! I've used it on the wall-to-wall in the living room, on the stairs, and on a sofa and loveseat (different upholsteries) and it has performed wonderfully! It is loud though...so you can't really use it when your husband's watching the big game. ~ well, you can, but he may not like it so much!!! ; )
Rated 5 out of 5 by vacuumman12344 Fantastic
This has blown my mind. When I bought it I though ehhh it will be ok but not fantastic. I was wrong I absolutely love it. The machine is slick, fast and works great. Bottom line I do not regret this purchase. I would recommend this to anyone.
Rated 5 out of 5 by mrsplumley Great for pet owners
We purchased this cleaner about 3 months ago and absolutely love it. You literally fill up the solution tank, set it on the spot, push a button, and walk away. In 3 to 6 minutes (depending on the cycle), your spot is GONE. It works very well even on set in and dark stains. The only reason I gave it a 4 out of 5 on "Meets Expectations" is because the spot is still pretty damp when the cycle is done. But this is easily solved by spending an extra 20 seconds using the hose to suck up the excess water. This is definitely worth the money.
Others had complained about the spot bot leaving a noticeable clean circle on their carpet, and we have noticed that, too, when we use it in high-traffic areas, but I don't think that is a bad thing. All that is showing is that we need to have our carpets fully shampooed!
It is also pretty loud for such a little machine, but the noise only lasts for a few minutes, so that doesn't bother me.
Overall, a very good purchase for those with pets and kids.

While we don't have pets (yet), I figured the Bisell SpotBot Pet Deep Carpet Cleaner would be perfect since kid stains are comparable to pet stains (at least in my house they are.)
With the new year coming up I figure it would be a good time to clean our carpets for a fresh start. I have used the Bissell SpotBot Pet Cleaner a few times now throughout our house and I really like it. It has two features I really like, amongst many others. The two features are that you can set it up, push a button and walk away while the SpotBot works its magic on the stain and the other feature is that it is portable.
Deep Reach Technology cleans carpet fibers from bottom up
Microban antimicrobial product protection
Removes up to 99% of odor-causing bacteria when used with Pet Stain and Odor formula and water
Hands-free stain cleaning with preset cycles
Unique Spiral Brushing helps lift dirt and stains
3 inch manual stain tool also included
Sprays and suctions to dry in one step
32 oz dirty water capacity
Manual stain tool snaps on for easy storage
16 foot cord
Right out of the box the SpotBot Pet is ready to go. It comes with two small samples of the detergent which you can use for two deep cleans, and by two I don't mean just two stains I mean two uses of a bunch of stains. You get two formulas: Oxy Gen and 2X Pet Stain and Odor Formula. The 2X Pet Stain and Odor Formula is the everyday formula and the Oxy Gen is kinda like a booster for stain fighting but I like to use them both all the time for a good deep cleaning and stain fighting. You can then buy additional refills at your local mass retailer (like Target or Walmart.)
First I added in the water to the tank and then added the cleaner formulas. Plugged in my SpotBot and I was ready to go! The buttons are pretty self-explanatory and I absolutely love that I can just push a button and let the scrubbing brushes work their magic until the cycle is complete which is either three or six minutes. If you want to scrub yourself, which is what I am used to from the Bissell Little Green Machine, then you can detach the manual scrubbing brush and use that. Just push a button on manual scrubber and the water/formula squirts out on your stain to then scrub yourself. This is perfect for small or quick stains, ones that maybe don't need a deep cleaning. So I took the SpotBot to our toy room and started on tackeling those awful stains.
I am amazed at how well the Bissell SpotBot Pet worked. As you can see from my picture above it lifted the stain so well, actually too well, that I need to do the whole room now. The hands-free stain cleaning is perfect for busy moms who don't have time (or energy) to scrub stains and need some help. I love that I can just set this down and have the scrubber do the work or do it myself if I need to. I have tried this on both set-in stains and fresh stains and haven't had a problem, but I have had to go over some stains a few times. As far as portability goes this machine also rocks because it is small enough to carry around by holding the carrying handle but still powerful. It doesn't take up a lot of room like an upright cleaner does so it is easy to store. I love too that the one attachment clicks on to stay in place.
Overall, I highly recommend the SpotBot Pet Deep Carpet Cleaner for anyone who has kids or pets. It really is a deep cleaner packed into a small machine. The formulas are reasonably priced from about $6-$10 and they are a lot cheaper than having your carpet professionally cleaned and easier than renting a machine each time you have a stain. Whether you need to really clean a room or just work a stain the Bissell SpotBot is perfect to get your carpet fresh and ready for the new year.
Rated 1 out of 5 by BKinOC Breaks way too easily
Wish I would have read the reviews before buying this thing. The first one broke after only a month. I took it back and got a replacement only to have that one break too. It has a handle on top so that you can carry it, but if you remove the waste canister to empty it you will see some screws holding the product together. The plastic around the screws is so thin and cheap that it will eventually crack and the cleans simply falls apart. It happened on both cleaners. On the second one, the hose that sucks up the dirty water also broke. I added a pic to this review so you can see how it breaks.
There's also a rubber seal on the the waste canister that falls out just about every time you empty it. Make sure you don't lose it because it will leak everywhere if you do. Just about every time I use it, it falls out and I have to stick my hand down the sink drain to fish it out.
Rated 5 out of 5 Great spot cleaner...
bought this to clean up messes after a dog and cat and it works great. I had held out on buying something like this and then finally went forward. Should have done this so much sooner. It works great.
Rated 5 out of 5 by AlleninTexas Excellant Machine
I rarely review purchases but I have to say I love this little machine. It is easy to use and works great. I couldn't be happier with my purchase.
Rated 5 out of 5 Amazing!
I wish I'd bought this thing a long time ago. The day I got it, I set it to work on a set in stain of Georgia red mud (on cream colored carpet, no less). Anyone who has tried to get red mud out of light colored carpet knows that you're just happy to diminish it enough that it's not quite as noticeable. But the Spot Bot removed all traces of this stain. I just set it down on the stain, pressed two buttons, and walked away from it. Five minutes later, the stain was gone and I exerted pretty much ZERO effort to remove it. I'm THRILLED with this purchase and have told all my friends to go out and buy one NOW, or put it on their Christmas list. It's also easy to operate. The reservoir's are easy to remove and replace and the markings on the solution tank make filling it idiot proof. I love this machine! It does not disappoint.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Jennifer2004 Great Product!
We came home one day to our dog having had diarrhea on our cream-colored carpet. We went out and bought the SpotBot Pet and it worked wonders! It is great that I have the option to either set it to do the work, or use the hose and brush myself. I would recommend it to anyone!
Rated 5 out of 5 by TIM7 MUCH IMPROVED SPOT BOT
I HAD A SPOT BOT THAT WAS APPROXIMATELY 5 YEARS OLD THAT FINALLY WORE ITSELF OUT. I PURCHASED THE NEW IMPROVED MODEL AND OH WHAT A DIFFERENCE,THIS MACHINE REALLY CLEANS STAINS.THE SUCTION IS ALSO MUCH IMPROVED, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT FOR CARPET / PET STAINS.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Chris5151 Didn't live up to it's claims. At least, not for me.
My son bought the SpotBot for me so I wouldn't have to get the "big" carpet cleaner out.
Unfortunately, the SpotBot left my spots bigger and darker than they originally were. It evidently didn't pull much water out, because we set barstools over the wet places and used fans for several hours, thinking that when it was dry the carpet would return to its normal shade of beige, but it didn't.
Needless to say, I was disappointed with my "machine". Maybe I just got a bad one, and I wouldn't be able to recommend this to anyone. My carpet actually looks worse than it did before I cleaned them. :-[
Rated 5 out of 5 by Adleigh8276 Great at getting tough stains out and convenient
I love the spotbot! I was hesitant at first to buy this product based on some reviews but this has been a lifesaver for my carpet. My puppy had diarrhea on my carpet and I had used many different products to get the stains out but it wasn't working, this machine took them out the very first try. I also like how you just press the button and let it do it's thing while you clean somewhere else.
Rated 5 out of 5 by SanBob nothing to assemble
This is second unit we own last one lasted 7 plus years, great machine for quick clean ups and small enough to do autos etc.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Parachic2010 One of my favorite appliances
This little thing packs some serious stain removal power. The simplicity of putting it over the spot, pushing a button and letting it work by itself is well worth the price! It even beeps to let you know when it is finished with the cycle. The included hand tool also works amazingly on furniture, I was embarrased at what I was able to get out of my husband's recliner, although I definitely feel better about it now!. This is definitely a good investment, it can also be used in your vehicle as well.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Madeline The Little Machine with Disappearing Dreams
I purchased the SpotBot® Pet Deep Cleaner 33N8-A after my fastidious daughter recommended it. She's been using hers for years with great success in cleaning up pet stains and tracked-in footsteps from her children and husband. I add the Oxy-clean to the cleaners Bissell includes with the machine and, so far, the dog and people stains have disappeared like magic. Great bargain for the price.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Linda S Somewhat disappointed...
Had the little green machine for years. Thought this would be easier and do better job. Cleans carpet but uses too much liquid and then leaves carpet very wet. Have used bother settings and had same result. Usually have to go over with hose just to get liquid out. Not what I expected.
Rated 5 out of 5 by melsuttles Very pleased
The SpotBot is great! It takes up stains that I've worked on for years with other cleaners!
Rated 4 out of 5 by Amy J This does a very nice job of cleaning pet spots.
As I have almost no carpet, I bought this specifically for upholstery and area rugs. It does a very good job on my sofa, which I've used it on multiple times now. I used it on an area rug for the first time yesterday. The auto clean feature is very handy - and effective. I've been very pleased with the Spot Bot.
Rated 1 out of 5 by kayla Right out of the box & no release of fluid!!
I was given this spot bot as a gift and have read the instructions more than twice and am trying to use it for the set in stains.. The brushes work, the motor sounds fine, but no cleaning solution is transfered to the clean tank or even my carpet... WHAT DO I DO? This is my FIRST time using it. :-(
Rated 5 out of 5 by OCDOne Genius invention.
This little steam cleaner is easy to use and even got rid of old cat urine smells. I'm so glad I purchased it! The carpet looks so nice and clean now -- and smells fresh.
Rated 5 out of 5 by jnuc173 Works very well.
We have a new puppy and a new house which doesn't mix well at times. This device works very well on pet stains. I is designed for just a very small area at a time, but that works for our purpose. I like that it is light and easy to store. Takes no time to get it running.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Deep cleaner Great portable cleaner!
This is great for removing nasty stains and smells. I have only used the hand wand and it gets the job done.
The solutions are hard to find for the portable devices and they are on the expensive side. you get very little solution for an expensive price. Thus, only 4 stars instead of 5 stars.
Bissell - Please reduce the solution price.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Kahlea Great product!
This is a great product & I would recommend it to anyone especially if you have children or pets. I don't know how I could live without it now. It was worth every penny & then some.

Rated 5 out of 5 by luvthespotbot Babies, Pets, Broken plumbing, oh my
This thing has saved us so many times it isn't funny. Diarrhea on the carpet at 3 am from a sick three year old? No problem! Urine/vomit from pets and kids? It gets it right out. Plumbing leak in the kitchen, gallons of water sitting underneath the floor of the cabinets? Detach the hose and off you go. I am also going to try to clean the cloth seats of my car with the detachable hose - we'll see how it goes but I'm sure it will be great for that as well. I love the ease of use and the pleasant smell of the cleaning products. The unit is rather heavy but that hasn't been much of an issue. If you have pets/kids, this unit will save you some headaches for sure.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Katsjazz Absolutely terrific for pet messes!
Love, love, love the convenience and effectiveness of the SpotBot. I have two small dogs that occasionally eat something that they shouldn't. And, unfortunately, that manifests in something completely disastrous usually in the middle of the night while I'm sleeping. The SpotBot makes it a cinch to clean up the nasty mess. This is, without a doubt, the best small carpet cleaner I've ever owned. The extendable hose feature is just great. Thanks, Bissell, for creating a great product (my dogs are grateful, too)!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Austin25 AMAZING!!!
We just purshased the Bssell SpotBot tonight & I was so excited about having it I used it as soon as I got home. Within 10 minutes of purchasing it I was extremley impressed to say the least! We live in an aparment and are moving at the end of the year. Over the last 9 months of living here we have tracked in a lot of dirt & have pet stains as well from our little poodle. I was scared to death I wouldn't find anything that could possibly get some of these carpet stains out! Boy, was I wrong!! I am SO glad we purchased this, the money was well worth it! I will definitley be recommending this to friends and family with carpet! Thank you Bissell for this amazing product!!
Rated 2 out of 5 by Sore Spot Bot Worked until it didn't. Boo less than 6 months old
I recently moved to a new home where I have very light cream carpet and I bought the Spot Bot to help with my kitties hairball issues. It worked great for the first few months after my learning curve of using the hose option instead of the other to aviod leaving a ring on the carpet. My problem is that the Spot Bot did not hold up very well. After a few months of very light usage, the nozzle on the hose attachment where the cleaning solution is dispensed broke and now the water just dribbles out. Next the whole thing separated from the base so when I pick it up by the handle it almost breaks into two peices and I have to carry it from the bottom, it also leaks both the cleaning solution and the dirty water.
Rated 5 out of 5 by middleprincess love this
I bought my first one over 10 yrs ago and I just had to replace it this year. I used this on every room and thru 8 dogs. it really works good on furniture too. The only thing is it cost the same as I paid for it 10 yrs ago. the sprayer quit spraying and it started not picking up all the water. it was the best for spot cleaning.
