Product Overview

The Bissell Spotbot Pet 33N8A is a handsfree spot and stain cleaner with automatic cycles, which allow you to switch between the settings. The Bissell Spotbot Pet 33N8A is able to remove stain through its roots. It features the Deep Reach technology, Microban Antimicrobial Product Protection and Unique Spiral Brushing Action.

The Bissell Spotbot Pet Has 5 Settings:

Surface Stains – a 3-minuite cycle for new, superficial stains

Set-in Stains – a 6-minute process to erase older, set-in stains, or stains that are really difficult to remove

Manual Hose – for the included brush head attachment. This allows you to manually spray cleaning solution and clean hard-to-clean areas. This setting is also for cleaning upholsteries, stairs and car carpet.

Pause and Resume – to pause and resume a cycle

Stop – completely halts a cycle

The Bissell Spotbot Pet Has These Great Features:


The Spotbot Pet has automatic cycles, allowing you to choose a setting and press a button then let the machine finish the work for you.

From the Bottom Up

The Bissell Spotbot Pet’s Deep Reach Technology carries the powerful cleaning solution right to the deepest part of the stain. The machine’s gentle scrubbing action will then lift the stain from its roots; thus, removing the entire mark without leaving anything behind.

Unique Spiral Brushing Action

This spot and stain cleaner effectively removes stain by using the Unique Spiral Brushing Action. It employs up to 400 cleaning revolutions in a single surface cleaning cycle. This action is the major enemy of stains.

Erases Odor-Causing Substance

The Spotbot Pet has a built in Microban Antimicrobial Product Protection. This component inhibits the growth of odor-causing substance such as bacteria, mildew and molds.

Powerful Cleaning Solution

It comes with powerful cleaning solutions: the Oxy Gen 2 and 2X Ultra Pet Stain & Odor Chemical. Both are effective in erasing stains; the latter can actually remove odor, too.

For Manual Cleaning, Too

Spots and stains on car carpets, stairs and upholstery are erased by using the Spotbot Pet’s manual clean setting. The machine comes with a hose and tool for spot-cleaning hard-to-reach corners.

The Good and The Bad Of The Bissell Spotbot Pet 33N8A

User Review Of The Bissell Spotbot Pet 33N8A

The Bissell Spotbot Pet will definitely change your stain-ridden life. It is very easy to use, the instructions are really simple: Fill the canister and push a button! It finishes the job in 3-6 minutes, depending on the size of the stain. The Spotbot Pet uses a spiral brushing action, which effectively removes stain; and the trial cleaners work well in eliminating odors, too. The size is perfect for small stains and makes storing it easier. It can fit under a garage stool or inside a small cupboard.

The catch. Of course it is not perfect. We are yet to find a perfect carpet-cleaner. You will notice that it can be a bit noisy while cleaning. Your cat or dog will definitely hate it on their very first encounter. It has this annoying end-of-cycle beep, too; which was supposed to be a feature, really. Since it is a SPOT CLEANER, it tends to leave really clean spots that are so obvious. It is great that it does it job well, but it makes your carpet look like it had an alien invasion lately.

Overall, you cannot live with the Spotbot Pet once you’ve tried it. It may have its downs, but has a great deal of ups, too. Maybe those left-on circles are just a way of telling you that your carpet probably needs a full cleaning blast. After all, the clean circles won’t appear that obvious if your carpet is actually clean. And the noise will become bearable once you get used to it. Just a tip: use as little cleaning solution as possible because this cleaning monster ‘froths’ a lot and too much carpet shampoo may result to fiber stiffness.

By the way, the Bissell Spotbot Pet is on sale at You will save up to 20% from its original price.
