Rated 4 out of 5Â by Maria54 Great For Your Back
It is so nice to sweep and and be able to pick up debris without bending! I did not give it a 5 star because the broom bristles are made a little cheaply and don't hold it's shape as well as it should!

Needed a long handled dust pan because I can't bend down. This does the job.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by jokerchaos most of the rubber edge doesn't hit the floor
Most of what I sweep goes under the dustpan. I have to shift and sweep after the dust 3-4 times and tilt the pan heavily to get it in the pan. Pretty poor job on it's one function.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by AllyCA Old version was perfect
I have the previous version of this from a few years ago, and it is great - 5 stars - works perfectly, the user doesn't need to bend, and the set is nice-looking/is small enough to store. I bought another one this month (so I'd have two - one for the house and one for the garage). I had seen a couple recent reviews saying that the dustpan isn't flush with the floor by just a small bit, enough that small dust/dirt goes underneath instead of into the dustpan. I figured it could just be the ones in a previous shipment, but mine had the same slight bowing, so I returned it. I love the older one, so if the production improves, it would be 5 stars. The Container Store was great and accepted the return easily.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by Gadgeteer 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!

Â by sodie 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.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by SusKay 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.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by BettyBoo 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.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by etownlax23 conveinent and easy to use
I bought two of these upright sweet sets while they were on sale a few weeks ago, one for upstairs and one for downstairs. So far so good. They're easy to use and the size is great - not too short and not too tall. Plus the handle at the top of the dustpan is movable - so you can put it at a right angle which makes it easier to carry around and use.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Lotus3323 I sweep more now!
I really love this upright dust pan and mini broom. My home is all hardwood floors. Before, I would sweep each room and leave a pile in the corner, but it would take me a few days (I know..) to get out the small dustpan and clean it up. I keep this set handy and it so easy to use that I donâ¿¿t procrastinate sweeping up my piles anymore. Also, I can quickly hit dirty spots (like under the kitchen table - I have messy kids). Overall my floors are cleaner.
The only thing I donâ¿¿t like is that the adjustable handle on the dust pan rotates down 90 degrees. It is supposed to be an advantage, but mostly, I find it bending when I donâ¿¿t want it to.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by CatLuvr Great for lizards but NOT for dirt
I should have listened to some of the other reviews. I bought 3 of these to replace old ones that had cracked (different brand that I can't find). The others were the same concept but it was effortless to sweep up dirt and kitty litter. This one takes all kinds of contortions with trying to flatten the rubber edge in order to get the dirt into the pan instead of sweeping under it. It shouldn't be that hard and most of the time I have to give up because it just won't work. Even the broom seems a little warped.
On the plus side they work pretty good for scooping up the lizards my cat brings as "gifts"... but that isn't why I bought them. I'm very disappointed because this could have been the perfect product. It was a lot of money for 3 worthless gadgets.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by amygb Too short!
I don't care for this set at all. The broom handle is way too short to be useful. you have to bend over to use it with both hands and is very uncomfortable. Could be used by kids I guess. Most of the debris I tried to sweep into the dustpan went underneath the dust pan. I don't want to bother with the hassle of sending it back, so I'm going to make my kids use it in the camper.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by elementaryartteacher Perfect for my classroom! and then some...
My students have totally "used up" my last broom and dustpan. This is just what I needed and it was even on sale. It stands right by the wastebasket and picks up everything from scraps to sequins. I decided to get an extra set to keep next to the litter pan at home. I hate stepping on the litter the cats track out. The broom and dust pan are so handy I can sweep as often as I want and the broom is soft enough to catch those pesky pieces of litter. I'm glad I looked through this month's flyer.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by LindaK Must Have for Kitchen
I first bought this for my house to have for quick sweep jobs - it does a great job, is a great price and tucks away in the corner of the pantry. I have since bought 3 others for housewarming gifts, graduation gifts, etc. and they have been appreciated every time. One person gave me a funny look but subsequently told me they "couldn't believe how often they would use it...that it was a must have for her new apartment that she couldn't do without now". I agree!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by reebs75 No need to bend down!
I've been looking for a small broom and dust pan and this was a great find. Some reviewers say it's warped and the dirt sweeps right under the dust pan. It has a rubber stopper and you need to give it a little tilt, like any other dust pan to keep that from happening. Stores away nicely by snapping together, and keeps the kids interested in cleaning up too. And we're not losing one or the other since they snap together nicely. Graet purchase, very pleased!

Rated 4 out of 5Â by dHouse works well, upright feature is nice
this sweep set works great on hard surfaces. The upright feature (you can snap the broom to the dustpan) is an excellent idea. My only slight complaint is that the broom is a little bit short (and I'm only 5' 3"). Other than that, I am very satisfied with purchase.

We like this sweep set. It looks cute and cleans well. Brush seems to be in good quality. Dust pan takes one star off because ours does not lie completely flat to the ground, requiring a little maneuvering to get all the debris into the pan.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by cruelas Nice look but I have to tilt the dustpan
I chose this dustpan & broom for its durability and attractiveness--we keep it in the doorway, so I wanted it to look nice.
It does look nice, but the dustpan isn't my favorite. When left flat, the dirt tends to go under the rubber lip, so I've had to tilt it forward.
Also, it's nice that the broom attaches to the dustpan, but it's a bit awkward to remove (or I'm doing it wrong).

I have this sweeper set at home and love it. It does a great job picking up crumbs after meals and also works well on dog hair. It is compact and convenient. The bristles hold up well and is a great product over all. I use mine daily.
