What experts liked
If I kept it clean, I could use it to sweep crumbs off the table. Plus, it’s flexible, so it gets in all the corners that a traditional brush misses, and the grip is comfortable. The rubber edge of the dustpan is a bit thick to pick up fine particles, but would work well for sweeping up big pieces of glass. And the lifetime warranty is hard to argue with.
- Reviewed
Its unique red rubber lip tapers to a fine edge and curves up the sides of the dustpan, making it by far the most capable tool for getting dust off the floor—without needing to be scooted back constantly as you sweep.

What experts didn't like
A whisk-style brush set with very soft bristles that fling particles. The dustpan is similar to our pick, with that excellent contoured lip—but it is narrower and lacks the comfortable handle, and it’s paired with a terrible brush.

An Overview On Dustpan Sets

To keep your home clean and free of dirt and debris, you’ll need a quality broom and dustpan set. While you can purchase each of these items separately, it’s best to get a pair that has been designed to work together. There are a few features you’ll want to keep your eye out for as you browse the available models.

Begin by checking the height of the broom’s handle. This is especially important if you are above average in height, as a short handle will require you to bend over to properly use the broom, which can be tough on your back and waist. Some brooms are easy to assemble and actually extend from 40 inches to 54 inches with just the twist of the handle.

Next, take a look at your available amount of storage. It doesn’t matter which broom and dustpan model you select when storage isn’t an issue, but if you have only a small space in which to keep your cleaning tools, you’ll want to go with a model that snaps together and folds upright to fit in the gap next to your refrigerator or in between your washer and dryer.

Where you plan on using the broom and dustpan set is also important. Some models are designed for indoor use, while others work best in outdoor areas. Of course, there are also dustpan sets that work well inside and outside, so you can use them to clean up sandwich crumbs in the kitchen and fallen leaves on your front porch.

Added features may help you choose between two models that are similar otherwise. A dustpan with an anti-skid rubber bottom, for example, is a good choice, as it creates a seal between the floor and the dustpan so you’re not sweeping the dirt under the dustpan. Another good option is a dustpan set that is equipped with a comb that quickly removes animal hair. You won’t have to bend over to remove the hair from the bottom of the bristles.

DWYM Fun Fact

While a variety of homemade brooms have been in existence for a long time, it wasn’t until 1797 that the broom we know and love today was invented. It was created by a Massachusetts farmer named Levi Dickenson.

Surprisingly, the dustpan wasn’t invented until much later.  The first patent for this companion to the broom was obtained in 1858 by T.E. McNeill. The dustpan version that we are familiar with, however, was designed in 1897 by Lloyd P. Ray. 

There are quite a few Guinness World Records associated with the broom. The largest broom was created by Kreateam in 2006 in the Netherlands. It measured just over 107 feet in length. In May of 2018, the largest broom dance was awarded to 737 individuals from India. The specific dance was initiated by the Prime Minister of India.

The Dustpan Set Buying Guide

  • Some dustpans have a small width. Keep in mind that it will be harder to sweep a large dirt pile into a dustpan with a small width.
  • While soft bristles do a great job of sweeping up messes, if the bristles are too soft, they won’t collect fine dust or spilled flour very well.
  • Reviewers warn that some dustpans come with a large manufacturer sticker label that is difficult to remove. There are two things you can do to make removing the sticker easier. You can spray it with vinegar, wait a few minutes and scrape it off or you can hold a blow dryer over it for five minutes before scraping it off.
  • If the bristles on your broom become entangled at any time, run a wide-tooth comb through them to get them to go back to their original position.
  • For the most part, the cost for a broom and dustpan set doesn’t vary by much. An extra feature or two may drive the price up a little, but not by a great deal. For example, the OXO Good Grips Brush & Dustpan Set and the Full Circle Tiny Team Mini Brush & Dustpan Set are similar in price, however, the Full Circle Clean Team Brush & Dust Pan Set and the Casabella Brush & Dustpan Set command a few dollars more thanks to the addition of a built-in scraper.
