In the Before Times, we owned a very old and heavy canister-style vacuum that my husband dutifully dragged around the house once a month. Several months ago, it finally broke and we were in the market for a new vacuum.
We did some research, taking into account things like performance, ease of use, and price. I especially wanted something light and cordless so we could also use it in the car to clean up all those stray Cheerios.
We ultimately landed on Dyson’s V8 Absolute. We have a mix of hardwood and carpeted floors, and the V8 Absolute came with specialized heads for both. It also came with several handy attachments for reaching into nooks and crannies, “hygienic bin emptying” (which means you can empty it without touching what comes out), and enough battery life for me to vacuum our whole townhouse in one charge.
It is a bit different from traditional vacuums: It’s top- rather than bottom-heavy, doesn’t stand on its own (you have to lay it down), and takes a little hand strength to use since you have to pull a trigger to vacuum.
All in all, it’s easy to use and does a fabulous job cleaning — I use it almost daily.
