Onda Broom & Dustpan by Karim Rashid
Attractive, Easy. Long Handle
I think this broom is great - I like that it has a long handle and that the dustpan has a long enough handle that you do not have to bend down. I wanted something that looks attractive because it is in our office and sits out all of the time - this broom was the perfect solution.

Good design and made well
This is a back saver, especially when you're trying to resume basic household 'tasks' after spinal surgery and can not lift or bend. The only thing is that when I ordered it, I thought the dustpan handle would be same length as the broom handle. So, for the weeks after surgery during which I could not bend at all but could resume some minimal light house chores (in ways modified by physical therapist), I relied on help with the dustpan part. Now that I can bend a little, the 'half-length' handle is doable and far easier to use than traditional short handle dustpans that were torture and can never use again. This broom dustpan combo is very light and the broom bristles do their job very well. The lightness, ergonomic broom handle, narrow width and type of broom bristles makes sweeping under counters, in corners and those odd spaces that elude traditional brooms much easier and with better results. It's also nice that the dustpan really does fit easily and securely on the broom handle yet also removes easily. This combo stands together nicely for storage, whether 'as is' or on a wall hook. Kudos to designer Karim Rashid for well thought out design and product well made.

Best broom ever
I bought this broom to help cleanup after dinner messes with my little ones. The broom and dust pan works so well that I can even use it with one hand, while holding my toddler in the other. I recommend this to anyone that often has their hands full, wants something easy to use, or anyone that just wants a great quality product.

Onda Broom is Functional Sculpture
This is the best indoor broom I've ever had. It looks beautiful and can be stood anywhere, so you don't have to go fetching it from a closet. You don't have to go looking for the dustpan and brush. It sweeps everything up and deposits every bit into the dustpan, no leaks. the only complaint is that it is a little awkward to empty the dustpan/stand because of its shape and size. I've bought 4 of them in the last 2 years, 2 as gifts, one for my studio, and one for the kitchen and general use around the house.
