Ideal World TV Launch New & Exclusive Bissell PowerGlide Cordless #REVIEW

October 10th sees the launch of the new and exclusive Bissell PowerGlide Cordless, an innovative, cordless vacuum available on Ideal World TV and online. I've been fortunate enough to give one a whirl for the purpose of reviewing it coinciding with Ideal World's launch.

That metallic blue colour is lovely!

Cordless really is the way forward in this day and age isn't it? I would never go back to a wired vacuum cleaner, there is simply no going back from the freedom and agility one has without being attached to the walls once you've experienced it for the first time! Thankfully it's pretty lightweight too, further freeing the user from any strain or effort.


It took 2 hours to charge the battery too it's full strength and when the battery pack light changes from red to green - you know you're ready to go.

This vacuum cleaner claims to "offer the longest uninterrupted running time for a cordless vacuum on the market today, meaning you can clean your entire home without the worry of having to re-charge the vacuum." So, I set about checking that claim out and vacuumed my 3 bed semi at a leisurely pace taking around 40 minutes. This included the stairs, the ceilings for any lurking cobwebs and also the skirting boards. Indeed, it lasted throughout without it's power or suction faltering.  


I have carpet in all rooms expect for the kitchen/diner and bathroom which are laminate and lino. I found the vacuum seamlessly adjusted to the different floor types, particularly with the on/off button for the rotating brush rows in the head of the cleaner. For us, talc is particularly difficult to pick up from our carpets so I risked pouring it all over Finley's floor to demonstrate it's suction power...  


The Bissell PowerGlide Cordless has a lift-off function to help clean those hard to reach areas such as the corners of stairs/doorways and even reaching any cobwebs up high! This is one thing that I really missed with owning the Bosch Athlet - the fact that there's no lift off or tubed nozzle to do that.


Lifting off means no balancing of the upright vacuum cleaner on the stairs too. The swivel steering makes for easy navigation and whilst it doesn't lay completely flat to the floor without the head lifting from the ground, it gets about as close as you'd like it to which was good for under beds or sofas for me. 

My opinion of the Bissell Powerglide is, obviously, a good one! I wouldn't pay the retail price of £249 as is from from Bissell direct however don’t forget to tune into the Bissell Powerglide Cordless Show on October 10th at 9pm, on Ideal World TV: www.idealworld.tv,  Sky Channel 654, Freeview 22, Virgin 747 and Freesat 812 to get yours for just £199 exclusively

Now that's more like it! Worth every penny... I just can't fault it.

  1. A cordless vacuum?! YES PLEASE! The cord on mine drives me nuts, I'm forever having to pull it and re plug the vacuum in elsewhere. I'll have to tune into the Bissell powerglide cordless show althouh not sure I can afford it this side of Xmas but I shall bear it in mind for the future. :)

  2. Ive always wanted a cordless vacuum but i vacuum for so long at a time that it would annoy me if it went dead. I do love the idea of it though as the cord is very annoying. I like the sound of the lift up bit to get into the corners as it is so hard to get them bits with a normal bulky hoover.

  3. Cordless vacuums are so much better now, we have one (not this make) and I wouldn't be without it. It's more logical (to me anyway) than any of our previous hoovers and takes up so much less space. Definitely the way to go.

  4. I always worry about cordless vacuums and how far they'll last. But it sounds like this one would probably last round our house too.

  5. okay so I am going to show my naivety here - I didn't know you could get cordless vacuums, we still have our dyson roller ball thing which is temperamental at the best of times! This sounds great and would make short work of our little cottage. Will have to look into this. Thank you :) x

  9. I've seen this advertised quite a lot on TV and it really does look like a good Hoover! I probably wouldn't pay the retail price either but would definitely consider it when on sale x

  12. Ooh nice. This looks just like the VAX cordless we've recently reviewed. I find that with my cordless the suction isn't that great. Never thought to try the talcum powder test - Interesting.
    Thanks for sharing hun
