Bissell 1200B SpotBot Carpet Cleaner Review


Avg. consumer rating = 87/100 The Bissell 1200B SpotBot is not a steam cleaner – rather it is a specialized unit for cleaning carpet stains (Bissell categorizes the SpotBot under “Compact Deep Cleaners”). The Bissell 1200B gets excellent consumer...

Highly recommended (by consumers) for households with pets and/or children- Effective at removing many different kinds of stains: coke, dirt, Koolaid, spaghetti, pet stains, red wine, etc.- Also works well on carpets in vehicles- Very easy to use-...

Noisy (common comment)- Some complaints that it can leave a ring in the carpet (a ring of cleaner carpet).- Uses a lot of cleaning solution- Cleaning area is a little small- Leaves carpet damp- Some outlets charge a fair bit for the cleaning solution...

ManualSome good step by step instructions as well as a description of the different features of the deep cleaner can be found in the Bissell 1200B Manual.

Bissell 12006 SpotBot Pet Hands-free Deep Cleaner


Consumer review by:

Yes it can and it's easy


I wanted a small steam cleaner for those little spots in my carpet. I have cats and I tend to spill things myself and I am not inclined to drag out the big steam cleaner for these kinds of things. Because I have problems with my knees, I also resist ...

easy to use, durable, effective

manual cleaner doesn't clean as well as automatic, auto cleaner cleans a circle

Good device overall (and tips for use)


I bought one of the "Pet" versions, which are basically the same as other version except it comes with a trial bottle of pet odor cleaner. The unit basically works as advertised: fill it up, put it on the dirty spot, hit the button, and go do something...

Easy to use, compact

"crop circles," uses a lot of fluid

Required Title


I recently bought by second SpotBot due to a move. I lived in military housing and the family that is moving out of quarters (the apartment or townhouse) cleans the quarters for the family moving in. If the inspector finds the cleaning unsatisfactory ...

Time saver and easy to use

A few manageable design flaws

How the SpotBot Saved Our Cat


Okay--the SpotBot didn't literally save our cat, but it has spared him a lot of threats. Mr. Columbo, the cat in question, is about 13 years old (not sure exactly; he was a bit past kitten stage when he adopted us), and as he's aged has begun to have a...

Extremely easy to use and effective

Not at its best on stairs

Product Specifications

The Bissell SpotBot hands-free compact deep cleaner is a revolutionary spot cleaner that gives you the freedom to walk away while it does the work for you. Simply set the SpotBot on the spot or stain, hit start, and walk away--SpotBot does the work for you, allowing you to do other things. The SpotBot has a preprogrammed cycle for surface or set-in stains but also switches to manual cleaning. This machine works great for removing stains such as red wine, cola, fruit juice, and coffee and also works great on pet stains. The unique spiral brushing action cleans in a circular motion; in one cycle it completes over 400 cleaning revolutions for thorough and effective removal of tough stains. The SpotBot also comes with a trial size of the Little Green Formula and a trial size of OxyGen II.
