Hurricane Spin Broom Review
The “Hurricane Spin” brand should be familiar to many consumers who have likely seen ads for the Hurricane Spin Mop and the Hurricane Spin Scrubber. Now we have the Hurricane Spin Broom, a lightweight manual broom that uses spinning brushes to clean up messes with its built-in dust pan.
The product uses a swivel head, which allows you to maneuver through tight spaces easily, along with a dust pan (which they call a “bin”) that will hold your mess to be discarded later. It also features spinning brushes which pull hair, crumbs, and other objects into the built-in dust pan. I found that it does a pretty good job on everyday spills, from dry dog food even to baby powder. Pet hair tends to accumulate in the middle brush, and there is a provided comb that allows you to clean that area of the Hurricane Spin Broom.
Keep in mind that this is not a replacement for a vacuum or even a mop. It is to be used primarily on hard floors and dry messes. Thus, just as you wouldn’t use a broom on carpet or to clean up a liquid mess, you also wouldn’t use Hurricane Spin Broom for such cleanup jobs.
When shipping is included, $30 may seem a bit steep for the materials you get, and the handle may seem a bit flimsy for the price. That said, the device does a pretty nifty job of picking up dry objects and even hair from hard floors. In short, it works generally as advertised, despite a somewhat “cheap” feel to it. As long as your expectations are realistic, you should find that it gets the job done.
Once it lands in stores for an estimated $20 price tag, Hurricane Spin Broom will be a solid choice in the sweeper category. If you can’t wait – and don’t mind shelling out an extra $10 in shipping – we’re confident you’ll find enough uses around the house to make this a worthy investment. You may also want to try BulbHead, where shipping for me was only $5.
In my 3-way comparison of the Roto Sweep, Easy Edge, and Hurricane Spin Broom, I found the Spin Broom to be about in the middle. It picks up as well as the Easy Edge, but is slightly louder and the dustpan isn’t quite as easy to open.
Because Easy Edge isn’t available in stores, I would recommend the Hurricane Spin Broom over Roto Sweep if you want to shop locally.
What differentiates a small vacuum and an electric broom can be something of a gray area. A popular product in this category would be something like the Swivel Sweeper Max, a $28 sweeper that also features a swivel head and spinning brushes. That item current holds a 4 star rating among over 1,700 consumers on Amazon.
Easy Edge appears to be the original spin broom sporting the three-brush design found in Hurricane Spin Broom. You can see my reviews for the Hurricane Spin Broom and Easy Edge below, and a video that compares those two to Roto Sweep.
