The Bissell Pet Hair Eraser 33A1B is a product of Bissell, similar to other models such as the Bissell 27K6, Bissell 33A1, and Bissell 33A1W. It has a simple compact design weighing 5 pounds. The handheld vacuum is fitted with a powerful motor, a handle and a nozzle for the collection of pet fur. It is has a power cord which has to be connected to a power outlet for it to work. This Bissel Pet Hair Eraser review will give you an in-depth look at its features and usability to help you decide if it is the best vacuum cleaner for you.


From the name, it is evident that Bissell Pet Hair Eraser handheld is designed around cleaning after pets. The vacuum is used to remove pet hair from surfaces of seats, tables, clothes, carpet, stairs, and car seats among other places that can potentially harbor any fur shed off by pets.

Whilst the vacuum has excellent performance when it comes to pet fur removal, you cannot use it to remove other kinds of debris from surfaces like carpets. The vacuum is also corded which makes it suitable for people who are planning to use it indoors, therefore it offers limited outdoor utility unless there is a power outlet nearby. For pet owners planning on going camping in the woods, this vacuum is not the best choice for you. The vacuum functions better on hard surfaces as compared to surfaces with soft fabric.


The Bissell Pet Hair Eraser 33A1B comes with a few specialized features which give it the superior functionality it has depending on the intended usage.


The biggest restriction in terms of the vacuum’s design is that it is not cordless, therefore portability is limited. Users must be near and connected to a power outlet. It is fitted with a twelve-foot long cord which is much longer than what other corded handheld vacuums offer. This allows more flexibility around the house and cleaning areas. The vacuum cord does not automatically rewind.

Accessories and Parts

The Bissell Pet Hair Eraser 33A1B has a 4 amp motor, making it one of the strongest suction powers among the handheld vacuums – the superior pet cleaner. Unfortunately, the powerful motor that contributes greatly to the heavyweight of the vacuum (5 pounds).

The mouth of the vacuum is fitted with a rubber nozzle that attracts pet fur. During the cleaning process, so it is not uncommon to see some of the furs stuck on the nozzle instead of being sucked in.

The air outflow is on the side of the vacuum. This comes as a disadvantage since some of the fur will be blown all over the place as you clean. To fix this while using the vacuum cleaner, several passes are required to completely clean a small area.

The vacuum has a multilevel filter system and a dirt cup capacity of 0.7 litters, this is quite adequate considering pet fur occupy very little space. The Bissell Pet Hair Eraser handheld vacuum lacks a brush and a crevice tool when purchasing, so it is a struggle to effectively clean around tight areas and corners. However, it does come with a tangle-free brush roll which prevents tangling of long pet hairs.

The Bissell Pet Hair Eraser 33A1B is an excellent vacuum for pet hair removal. The strong motor and the large cup capacity makes it the best choice for pet owners. The main downside of the product is that it is corded, creating limited outdoor usability because of its reliance on a continuous connection to a power outlet.
