Promising review: “OK, I feel a little bit depressed to be reviewing a dustpan. I would rather be reviewing a large, canary yellow diamond solitaire ring, for example. Nonetheless, I purchased the dustpan and not the ring, so here goes. Among brush and dustpan sets, this one is a standout. The brush has fine, dense, flexible bristles that conform to every surface and sweep really well. The pan is deep, with a soft rubber lip, and its top edges curve over to contain the dust inside. Brush your crumbs into a pile, and with one stroke, sweep the pile into the pan. No need to chase around that line of crumbs that usually remains by the lip of the dustpan — you know the one I mean. When you are done cleaning up, the bamboo brush fits into the handle of the dustpan, making a tidy and attractive package. It looks like it was designed with care — not mass-produced.” —E. Holm
