Our Hurricane 360 Spin Mop Review
We first evaluated this product in mid-2013. Immediately upon unpacking the mop, it was apparent that the product was cheaply-made and smaller in appearance than expected. The handle was perhaps the biggest issue, feeling flimsy and too short to hold without leaning over. We were also unable to screw the handle in completely. The bucket is made of plastic that does not feel durable, and the foot pedal is difficult to operate at times.
We tested out the Hurricane 360 on wood floors with visible scuff marks and dog hair, and it was satisfactory in picking up both dirt and dog hair. Matched up against a cheaper Swiffer Sweeper, however, we’d give the Swiffer a slight edge. The Hurricane is probably better suited for smaller areas, as it seemed less effective in large areas and its round design did not clean corners at all.
Many of our commenters below have expressed frustration with the online ordering process. Fortunately, this can be remedied by simply purchasing locally, as the product is now available in stores such as Bed, Bath, and Beyond.
Alternatives to Hurricane 360 Spin Mop
There are a multitude of spin mops available, all which closely resemble the design of this product. These similar products can be found on such sites as HSN, or in local stores such as Walmart. They range in price from about $30 to $40.
Hurricane itself has a new version of the spin mop available, the Hurricane Twin Spin. This product is advertised as half the weight of the original, but able to perform twice the work. It sells for about the same price as the original Hurricane 360 Spin Mop.
As with so many “As Seen on TV” products, Hurricane 360 Spin Mop is another great idea which is poorly executed. The concept of the Hurricane 360 is idealized in the television ads, but the reality of the product is that it’s just a cheaply-made, over-priced mop. This could be part of the reason why the company has released a follow-up product, which we have yet to evaluate.
