Product Overview

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.

Pros:

  • 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

Cons:

  • 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

Concluding thoughts:

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.

  1. An extendable broom is an excellent idea, especially when you want to reach into far and awkward places and corners. I also love that the dustpan has a comb that can clean the broom for you with ease. I have yet to come across a broom that catches all the dirt the first time, so this needs seeing to believe.

    Since the product comes with a guarantee, I will be sure to try it out, as judging by your review, it does look really good.

  2. Interesting post. I’ve never given so much thought to a broom, but your post opened my eyes to the fact that I may not be paying enough attention.  It would be nice not to have to bend down to use a dustpan.  We have tile floor, so I’m happy to see that your opinion this broom and dustpan would work very well. 

    • Thank you for stopping by. A broom is one of those things we often use without giving it much thought. Since I clean several buildings, I often get frustrated with the tools provided and it makes me appreciate the ones that work well.

  3. Thanks for sharing this wonderful review about OXO good grips with extendable broom; Its an eye opener. I also love the way you outlined the pros and cons of the product. I will also like to recommend it for house keepers; I got mine from amazon and its pretty cheap and affordable to buy.

    • Although this broom costs more than many others initially, I feel like it is a good value because it works well and is well made.

  4. Hey Theresa, 

    Thank you for reviewing the OXO Good Grips Sweep Set with Extendable Broom.

    In fact, I have been looking to replace my old broom and dustpan set but it was hard to find one that had the dustpan that pivots up. I like this feature to contain the dirt while you walk to the trash bin and for storage. I thought the price of this combo set was a little high, but like most OXO products, this is high quality. Definitely will order one set.

    Best Wishes.

    • Thank you for your feedback. I really like the fact that OXO stands by their products since what is right for one person might not be right another. Although I love the item and recommend it, if you don’t they will make it good.

    • Hi, Dahay:

      I appreciate your enthusiasm and your thoughtfulness toward your grandparents and others with back problems. You may also be interested in the floor tools from e-cloth. They are very light and effective as well.

      Thank you,

      Theresa
