Lime Stationary Upright Sweep Set
Coulda been a contender
The broom is fine, but the dustpan does not stay in place. It twirls around when you try to empty it unless you keep removing it from the pole, which defeats the purpose of avoiding bending down. I'll have to figure out a way to permanently fasten it so that it doesn't twirl and spill out the swept up dirt!

Not durable at all
After a few weeks in my closet, the dustpan portion bent and makes it completely useless to sweep into. (And nothing severe was done to it to warrant the "durable" plastic to bend that much). Also, the dustpan swivels, and on several occasions, it turned on me as I was moving the dirt to the trash can, spilling it all over the floor. WORST PURCHASE EVER.

A great alternative to a traditional broom
My Mom has mobility issues and a full size broom was hard for her to handle. This combo is perfect to keep in her kitchen as she has cats that like to scatter their dry food. The pan edge is sharp enough that what you sweep in actually goes in. An added bonus is that you don't have to bend down to use the pan - it's nicely attached to the long handle.

Upright Sweep Set
Years ago, maybe 10 years ago, I bought one of these upright sweep sets and loved it. As the bristles on the broom part wore down I wanted to replace it but I could not remember where I had bought it. I bought replacements at other stores and was never satisfied and kept going back to use my old original from the Container Store. Finally, I received a sales flyer recently and saw this set on sale. I rushed to the store to get it, it's the best by far and lasts forever. Get one, you won't be sorry.
