Zing Bagged Canister Vacuum, 4122
Canister Vacuum Cleaners
BISSELL canister vacuums are light and easy to maneuver. They’re great for stairs and other surfaces like curtains, upholstery, auto interiors, and more.
What are the benefits to cleaning with the BISSELL Zing Bagged Canister Vacuum?
BISSELL Zing bagged canister vacuum makes any cleaning task seem effortless. The lightweight design and carry handle provide portable convenience. The Multi-Surface Floor Nozzle allows for easy cleaning of carpet, rugs and bare floors. The telescoping wand allows you to comfortably maneuver around and under furniture and also clean hard to reach areas like drapes and ceilings. When you are finished, the cord will automatically rewind with the push of a button.
What is the difference between an upright vacuum and a canister vacuum?
Canister vacuums are low to the ground vacuums that have a long hose with a wand on the end. As you clean through the hose and wand, you pull the canister unit behind you. Upright vacuums stand tall and have a handle, which is used to push the vacuum. When cleaning carpets, the debris is removed through the foot or base of the unit. Most uprights also have a hose and on-board tools, which are typically used for hard to reach places and when cleaning furniture.At one time, canisters were thought to be easier to use for cleaning hard to reach places and for cleaning a larger variety of floors surfaces. However, the uprights of today have added cleaning features, such as bare floor height adjustments, brush roll on/off switches, and are easily maneuverable. In addition, the on board cleaning tools have made upright vacuums even more versatile.Although uprights are easier to use and more effective at cleaning larger areas in the home, they can still be a challenge when cleaning stairs.
Which type of vacuum is better -- bagless or bagged?
Neither type of vacuum is “better” than the other. A bagged vacuum will lose its cleaning effectiveness as the bag fills with debris. The bag must be changed when it is about 1/2 to 2/3 full for the best cleaning performance. The choice between a bagged and bagless vacuum really depends on your personal preference.

I ordered this vac based on the reviews here and will be put to use at the cabin 'up north' which mainly has wood floors,a few rugs and small carpeted areas. I did a quick test around the house to give the vacuum a proper shakedown Assembly was a breeze (who looks at the manual anyways?) and it took a total of 5 minutes from opening the box to plugging in the power cord for some serious dust bunny busting.
This little vac really sucks up the floor. I cleaned 4 rooms in a matter of minutes compared to using a swiffer type floor duster thingy which I normally use, then suck up the piles with the hose attachment from the upright vacuum, which really is a pain and not an efficient use of time. I giggled like a little girl cleaning the linoleum bathroom floor of all the Chewbacca dander the wife and daughter leave behind after a 2 hour session of styling and blow drying. Seriously, the amount of hair that fall off their heads everyday could choke a billy goat. So I was happy that the little purple vac cleared the floor in no time.
Next was to tackle the lint and dust on the hardwood floors under the beds. Piece of cake. I think I heard the little purple vac mutter, "is that all you got?" Fine then, let's hit the dining room and get rid of all the crumbs, dust and whatever the dog dragged in that I somehow managed to miss when I supposedly cleaned the other day. No problem. Next was the living room where it still baffles me how much scuzz manages to accumulate under the sofa and chairs. Debris sucked up in seconds. And the little purple vac did a fairly decent job picking up rawhide bone bits that the dog left behind on the area rug. I evened vacuumed the walls where dust had built up due to the constantly running ceiling fan in the upper landing.
I'm pretty impressed with this vacuum. It's light, not too noisy (about the same as all the other upright vac's I've owned) and does a really nice job cleaning hard surfaces. I personally probably would not count on this vacuum to do regular carpet cleaning duties, but for quick crumb cleanups it'll do just fine. You really need a rotating brush and a beater bar for carpets. Plus a steam cleaner/ extractor if you have pets. Don't ask...I also found the cord rewinder worked well.
If I can find one fault it's not with the vacuum itself but the attachments- where's the dust brush? No big deal for me as I have a few that I kept when the other previous vacuums I've owned 'bit the dust'. Yes pun intended. Not everyone is going to have a drawer full of leftover attachments. I do like that Bissell included 3 spare dirt bags in the box.
1) Cheap (I mean inexpensive)
2) Cleans/ dusts/ sucks dirt on hard surfaces without a hiccup.
3) Light and maneuverable. I haven't used a canister vac in over 25 years (last one my parents owned).
4) Will do a quick cleanup on carpet (crumbs, confetti, hair, etc). This isn't a shop-vac so for wet spills use something else. Like a shop-vac or an extractor. My house is 50/50 carpet and hard surfaced floors and I use an upright vac for carpets.
5) I like it. A lot. Which means squat to 99.9999995% of the people reading this review.
I have no idea how long this vacuum will last. I used it for a total of 30 minutes so far and I didn't see anything wrong with it. In fact, I'm so impressed with this little purple vac that I'm considering getting another one for most of the cleaning duties and just use the upright for the carpets and rugs. I also read some of the negative reviews here and I'm a little puzzled on what people expected of this vacuum. No- it won't thoroughly clean carpet. I'm 6'1" and found the telescoping wand to be a decent length for me. I never had it flip or tip over, and I'm not the nicest on equipment. And if the hose rips I'll break out the electrical tape and patch it like I've done numerous times for the other vacuums I've had.
And that's about it.
1. Adjustable suction. I thought this would be a silly gimmick, but I find it useful. The lower settings allow me to vacuum light weight cat litter mats in place while the higher settings pick up spilled kibble easily.
2. On the lower settings, it’s not horribly loud. Even on the higher settings it’s a bit quieter than my old Hoover.
3. It’s easy to use and store. I like the retractable cord.
4. The wand is metal – nice and sturdy, and easily adjustable during use.
5. The vacuum head is easy to maneuver around hard floors.
6. The bag is a reasonable size that seems to last a couple of months (multi-pet and sand).
7. It has a couple of filters that I hope will extend the life of the motor. If my Hoover had these, I’d probably still be using that one.
1. The vacuum head is a little thick to fit under my stove, etc.
2. The tool holder is useless as it catches on furniture and falls off.
3. The tool holder doesn’t matter anyway because the crevice tool/dusting brush is laughably stupid and less than useless. I can’t imagine that anyone who has ever used a vacuum designed that ridiculous thing. I bought a universal fit brush for less than $10 that does the trick. The upholstery tool is quite small too.
4. The plastic hose that attaches to the nice metal wand is a bit cheap. It does seem to me that it will last several years though.
5. The bags are expensive. I almost didn’t get this vacuum because of the bag price, but I think it’ll be a trade-off for the cleaning efficiency of the vacuum.
So in all, the pros outnumber the cons and the price is reasonable. Of course it was made in China so it’s cheaper than it need be. My biggest beef is with the stupid little bitty crevice/dusting tool. It’s too short and thick to actually get into any crevice and and you have to flip the brush around to use it. The brush is not only tiny and flimsy but at a 90 degree angle to the suction so that it would be awkward to use even if it were a good brush. Notice you will not find a picture of it anywhere. So here’s one I took. I ask you – what are you supposed to do with this thing? Overall, I'm fully expecting this to be a good vacuum for the money spent.
