Onda Broom & Dustpan by Karim Rashid
This broom and dustpan solved 2 problems for me: 1) I no longer have to bend down to the floor to use a regular dustpan and aggravate my lower back problem and 2) I no longer have to rest my broom on the floor and ruin the bristles. I love that this dustpan has a long handle and the broom fits nicely in it for storage. Also, it looks great in my kitchen!

Both the broom and the dustpan are of excellent quality. appearance and utility. Should last for quite some time.

Great broom and dustpan
The broom is great--no more bending over to get everything in the dustpan. I've got it in the kitchen and wish it had a slightly smaller footprint, but overall it's great--I sweep up much more now!

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.
