When shopping for a new vacuum cleaner, you want the best. A vacuum that leaves your space looking and feeling cleaner and fresher after using it. Along with this, you want a model that fits in well with your home or office. For example, in a small space, you want a smaller model that doesn’t take up too much space.
Furthermore, an important aspect to consider when shopping for a new vacuum cleaner is which surface it cleans best – carpets, hardwood floors, or tiles?
The Bissell Featherweight 2033 is a lightweight option with exceptional sucking power to help you keep your household clean and healthy. In this review, we’ll cover everything you need to know about this Featherweight lightweight vacuum cleaner including what we like and dislike about it.
About The Bissell Featherweight 2033M
The Bissell Featherweight is a lightweight bagless stick vacuum that is ideal for cleaning up debris and dust as a result of daily life. Its powerful suction is especially handy for pet owners who have fluffy pets and are tired of sweeping up after them.
Additionally, this model can convert into three different functions to allow for optimal cleaning. This is further made easier by the fact that the Featherweight weighs less than four pounds. This means you can easily clean your stairs and behind the cupboards without tiring your arms.
Moreover, it comes with a crevice tool that allows you to reach even the smallest space in your home. No stone is left unturned when cleaning with the Bissell Featherweight. This becomes especially true, as the Bissell stick vacuum can be disassembled in different ways to better clean your stairs, floors, and furniture.
This is aided further by its powerful suction, that is maintained no matter the choice of function. This ensures that you can clean anything from carpets to hardwood floors.
When you are done with cleaning your space, this small device is easy to pack up and store away. This starts with the fact that it is bagless, which allows for a quick clean after using it.
The Bissell Featherweight is a mere 3.4lbs. So not only can you pack up and store this Bissell lightweight vacuum with ease, but it’s a breeze to maneuver around your house.
This vacuum cleaner is also equipped with a power cord, so it has to be plugged in each time to use it. This creates the added benefit of a strong motor run by two amps.
Stand Out Features
The Featherweight vacuum is well-known for its powerful suction. This is due to the fact that it has a power rating of two amps. This is extremely powerful when considering the compact size of the cleaner. Thus, it is efficient on multiple surfaces, such as hardwood floors, carpets, and/or tiles.
Additionally, it is known for how easily and quickly it cleans any surface. It can collect even the smallest amount of dirt or dust, leaving your house feeling fresh.
The powerful suction is found throughout all three functions of the vacuum cleaner. It is not only specific to the stick formation. This makes it easier for quick clean ups in multiple areas throughout your house.
Three Machines In One
The Bissell Featherweight Stick Vacuum is not restricted to simply being a stick model. As mentioned, it can transform into three different functions: stick vacuum, handheld vacuum, and stair vacuum.
This Bissell Featherweight model is what is traditionally known as a stick vacuum. The upright, narrow frame of the device makes using it an absolute breeze, especially if you live or operate in a smaller space, as it is perfect for narrow areas and quick clean-ups.
Furthermore, this function is useful on hardwood floors and cleaning the general area.
The handheld vacuum is useful to go where the stick model isn’t able to. Built this way, the cleaner can easily fit in your hand and reach the small spaces in between the couch pillows. This makes it absolutely perfect for countertops, cupboards, or even your car.
It also makes the cleaner easily portable. As it isn’t big or clunky, you can simply throw it into the back of your car.
Finally, this specific Featherweight product comes with a floor nozzle. This aspect can be attached to the hand vacuum to convert it into a stair vacuum. This is particularly useful for cleaning stairs, as it easily navigates between the different heights.
Easy To Use
Not only is it easy to convert this Bissell product to its different functions, but it’s super lightweight and simple to use.
This Bissell vacuum stick only weighs 3.4lbs. You can easily take it out and quickly clean a mess with no fuss. There’s no need to lug around a heavy vacuum anymore – you can simply plug it in and get busy cleaning without breaking a sweat or your back!
Furthermore, no surface will be left unclean. This is a result of its multiple functions as well as the fact that it has been designed to work on different surfaces. Whether these are soft plush of carpet or the smooth surface of tiles, this product can handle anything.
The Bissell vacuum also doesn’t feature a brush. Many people prefer this as hair does not get entangled in the brushes when cleaning. As brushes often collect hair, it often means extra work and can affect the sucking power. However, with this Bissell product, you can simply hoover the area and move on as it sucks up all the hair lying around.
Additionally, this lightweight stick cleaner comes with an ‘Easy Empty Dirt Tank’. You no longer have to worry about a dusty bag. Rather you can empty the contents of the dirt tank, wipe it down, and carry on.

How To Use This Machine
Step One: Set Up
After unpacking your machine from the box, you can lay out all the components on the floor. These include the crevice tool, the handle, and the nozzle for the stair vacuum. Once you have checked out all the different parts and how they fit together, decide on which one you need to clean your space.
In terms of operating it as a stick model, you simply have to slide the handle in the space at the top of the machine.
If you want to use the crevice tool for smaller spaces, slide it into the front of the vacuum. The same can be done with the start vacuum feature.
Step Two: Plug-In and Switch On
Once you’ve set up your cleaner, find the nearest plug point and plug it in. You will then see a red on and off switch at the bottom of the handle. You can simply switch it on and the machine should start working immediately. The on/off switch is clearly placed so that you can operate this lightweight device with ease.
Step Three: Clean
It’s always easier to start cleaning a general space and then move over to the smaller, complicated areas. As soon as your cleaner is on, navigate around your room to clean any messes near hand.
If you are starting by using the stick vacuum, make sure to switch over to the handheld at one point. This is especially helpful when cleaning counters, or small spaces.
Step Four: Finishing Up
After you finish cleaning, make sure to empty the dirt tank and wipe it down. This will ensure that you always achieve the optimal functionality of the product.
You can then remove the extra parts of the vacuum cleaner and either pack it back in its box or a storage container. If you want to, you can also choose to store this lightweight model as is. You can then place the various parts into a separate container.
