The OXO Good Grips Sweep Set is a compact extendable broom that attaches to the handle of the dustpan. The broom handle easily extends and retracts with a quick twist which allows it to be a full-sized broom for sweeping a large surface or a lobby broom for quickly sweeping a smaller area. The aluminum pole is lightweight, easy to grip and easy to maneuver. The bristles are soft and effectively grab dirt and dust. The extra-large dustpan features a rubber lip that prevents dirt and dust from being swept underneath it and locks open for easy emptying. It can be stored in a freestanding position with the dustpan in the open or compact closed, freestanding position or can be hung by the sturdy handle.
My thoughts about the product
This is the best broom and dustpan combo that I have ever used and as a commercial cleaning contractor, I have had the privilege of using quite a few. I have one in the upstairs of my home and I like it so much that I often find it worth the trip up and down the stairs to carry it downstairs rather than using the set that I keep down there. With the slightest amount of pressure on the handle of the dustpan, all of the debris sweeps into the dustpan with just one sweep. The built-in teeth remove hair and dust balls from the broom bristles. Even after two years of daily use, the broom bristles have not frayed.
- Extendable handle works as a full-sized broom or lobby broom
- The bristles are flexible which enables it to sweep dirt away from chair legs or under appliance edges
- Smaller than many standard broom which allows it to maneuver between chair and table legs
- The bristles are soft and easily capture hair and dustballs
- Light weight is helpful for people with neck or shoulder issues
- Dustpan has comb that effectively removes dust and hair from broom bristles
- Rubber lip on dustpan prevents dirt from going under instead of in
- Dustpan pivots for compact storage
- Can be stored upright in the open or closed position or hung
- Broom locks onto handle of dustpan without tipping
- Dustpan is large-capacity, but compact enabling dumping without spilling
- Catches all of the dirt the first time, so no going back over the same area over and over
- More expensive than some others, but worth it
- Smaller than some but that ended up being an advantage
- Some negative reviews on Amazon but these do not match my experience
The OXO Good Grips Sweep Set with Extendable Broom is without a doubt my number one recommendation for an indoor, multi-surface broom and dustpan combo. I have not used it on tile with grout but I suspect that this is the perfect broom to remove the dirt particles that have a tendency to be left behind by other brooms. Although there are some negative reviews on Amazon, the overall rating is good. OXO stands by their products and will replace the item or refund your money. Their products are thoroughly tested, they listen to their customers, and make improvements when necessary.
