Top 5 Best Vacuum Cleaners Reviews UK
- Top Choice – Shark Lift-Away Upright Vacuum Cleaner [NV801UKT] With Anti-hair wrap
- Best Cordless – Shark Cordless Stick Vacuum Cleaner [IZ251UK] Anti Hair Wrap
- Best For Pet hair – Dyson Ball Animal 2 Upright Vacuum Cleaner
- Best Budget – Vax Air Pet Bagless Cylinder Vacuum Cleaner
- Best Bagless Vacuum Cleaner – Miele Blizzard CX1 Excellence PowerLine Bagless Vacuum Cleaner
1. Top Choice – Shark Lift-Away Upright Vacuum Cleaner [NV801UKT] With Anti Hair Wrap
- Hair doesn’t tangle round roller
- DuoClean for carpet and hard floor cleaning
- Pet hair remover brush
- Body lifts away for easy stairs cleaning
- 8m cord for long reach
- It’s quite heavy
My favourite part of this has to be the anti-hair wrap technology that’s built into the cleaning head. It’s specially designed so that hair doesn’t get tangled and in fact, gets removed while you’re vacuuming!
I hate having to tip a vacuum over to cut out the hair from the roller getting dust everywhere and generally causing a mess.
Combine that with superb suction that matches a Dyson without the price tag and you’ve got the Shark DuoClean head to remove tiny particles and bits of dirt on both carpets and hard floors you can’t ask for better.
The body also lifts away (still on the power cord) so you can vacuum hard to reach areas and get a good deep clean of your stairs and furniture.
This is especially handy because as a whole it’s heavy so it would be very difficult to lug up each stair at a time, this way you can do the stairs with relative ease.
It’s got all the most important tools including a crevice tool, upholstery tool and a mini motorised brush to pick up pet hair and deep clean your furniture and carpeted stairs.
On it being heavy, I’d say it’s not the heaviest at 10kg, nothing like old vacuum cleaners but it’s certainly not lightweight. Easy enough to push around but if you find vacuuming hard work already then you’ll want to consider the cordless model below.
The reason I went for this as the best choice over a cordless model is that while cordless vacuums are fantastic they still have batteries which begin to fade after about 2 years.
For some people, it’s worth it for the convenience but I thought the top pick should have superb cleaning power and longevity to be able to clean year after year, after all, vacuum cleaners can be expensive so you want one that’s going to last and the 5-year guarantee the Shark NV801UKT does just that.
An excellent choice, you can’t do better in terms of performance and price.
2. Best Cordless – Shark Cordless Stick Vacuum Cleaner [IZ251UK] Anti Hair Wrap
Type: Cordless Stick
- anti hair wrap
- Duo clean head for all floor type
- 80 minute run time across 2 batteries
- 3.5 hours charge time
- anti allergy filter
- works as a handheld vacuum
- Have to use hand to empty on occasion
So what does this have that the shark above doesn’t?
What it does have is the same anti-hair wrap that I’m in love with and the DuoClean head to make it easy to clean carpet and hard floor. Amazing, we love it, but why buy this over the shark above?
Well, it’s cordless so that means you can’t get a more convenient way to clean, this model, in particular, has the flexology head so that the handle can fold to reach under furniture but also means it can fold in half to be stored upright on the floor with no need to instal a wall bracket.
It’s got a super-powerful suction inside for tough cleaning but what’s most important is it has two batteries, that means you can use one while the other is charging to give you 80 minutes of runtime which is enough for a deep clean of even the biggest house.
It’s my top choice of best cordless vacuum cleaner, and is the easiest way to clean your house, the only place it doesn’t hold up is you’ll need to start thinking about replacement batteries after a couple of years. You can buy replacement easily enough and you should get longer with this one because you can spread the use across two batteries, and it’s not like 2 years and they stop working, you’ll just have a slow drop off of run time from there.
To me it’s still worth it, for the convenience of being able to quickly clean up every day I’ll happily replace the batteries when the time comes.
3. Best For Pet hair – Dyson Ball Animal 2 Upright Vacuum Cleaner
- Powerful suction
- Includes tangle free hand tool
- Certified Asthma & Allergy Friendly
- Sealed suction for hard floors
- Deep brush clean for carpets
- Not the biggest dust container
- A dusty emptying experience
One thing I didn’t realise when I got a dog was quite how much his hair gets everywhere. Open up the fridge and a hair flies out, eating a sandwich and there’s a hair in it. Lying in bed (with the dog not allowed upstairs) and there’s hair in it.
Not to mention being one of the lucky ones that only needs to do it a once a day vacuum! My brother has a long-haired cat and is vacuuming at least twice a day.
With all that comes the need for a vacuum cleaner that’s up to the job, the Dyson Ball Animal 2 is just that, offering powerful suction and a superb filter system to remove allergens out the air making it fresher and less smelly after vacuuming. It’s got a brush bar which beats carpet to release all dust dirt and pet hair and a sealed suction for hard floors that stops dust and hair floating away as you move the vacuum towards it.
Plus you’ve got a motorised tool to get pet hair out of your furniture, off the stairs and all the other hard to reach places it can end up.
The one annoyance of this vacuum is it’s a reasonably small chamber that will likely need to be emptied a few times as you make your way around the house, but I take this as a good sign of how much dust is being picked up and removed from your house! It’s also bagless so when you empty into the outside bin you do get some blowback of dust so keep your mouth shut.
No list of best vacuums would be complete without a Dyson right? The cleaning power can’t be beaten and it does the best job at picking up hair off the floor.
4. Best Budget – Vax Air Pet Bagless Cylinder Vacuum Cleaner
- 6m cable for long-range
- 1.5L dust canister
- Motorised hand tool for furniture
- Prone to tipping if not careful
This is a great small vacuum cleaner, plenty of power to keep you going through the house while also being less than £100. No it doesn’t have the same cleaning power as the other models on the list but it does a damn fine job for the price.
Better suited to hard floors than carpets but suitable for use on both. It’s bagless so no hassle finding cheap bags that fit and the empty is pretty straightforward.
The only problem area is that the hose connects quite low to the bottom so if you’re not careful as you drag it around behind you, you’ll find that it tips over. Fairly common for the style of vacuum cleaner and not a huge deal.
The hose is plenty long to reach upstairs and get into cobwebs in corners plus the long hose gives it a total of 9m cleaning from the point it’s plugged in which should get you round a couple of rooms before needing to find somewhere else to plug it in.
That’s about all there is to it. It’s not got any fancy gadgets but it does a good job at vacuuming for a very reasonable price.
5. Best Bagless Vacuum Cleaner – Miele Blizzard CX1 Excellence PowerLine Bagless Vacuum Cleaner
- A-rated cleaning on hard floor and carpet
- HEPA filter for fresh air
- Tested for 20 years of use
- Hygienic Emptying
- 2 Litre dust capacity
- Not great for furniture
- Heavy for a cylinder vacuum
Miele are an underrated vacuum company I think, people think Dyson, they think Shark, but Miele are doing fantastic work creating high powered vacuum cleaners that pick up everything out of carpets and off hard floors.
ANd the Miele Blizzard CX1 is the peak of that superb quality. It comes in 4 models, the standard, the comfort, the excellent, the cat and dog all of which are great but the excellence stands out for me as the best.
You don’t pay much over the base model but you get the HEPA filter which cleans the air of 99.9% of small dust particles leaving you with a fresher home.
The Cat and Dog has the HEPA filter plus the turbo brush for handheld, well worth it if you have pets but not entirely necessary otherwise. And then the comfort model has the controls in the handle so you don’t need to bend down but because it’s heavier this isn’t a huge advantage.
What they all have is an easy empty container, they’re bagless so no paying for expensive bags, or cheap bags that will wreck the motor. And they’ve got a nice long power cord so you don’t have to plug and unplug in every single room.
Plus the 2-litre dust capacity should be enough to get you around the house if you vacuum regularly. Although first vacuum you’re going to be amazed at just how much it picks up!
Types of Vacuum Cleaner Explained
Let’s get this straight, there are a whole load of different types of vacuum cleaner and it can get a bit complicated. So let’s clear things up.
Upright vacuum cleaners are the most common, they generally provide the deepest clean because they have the most power. If you want to get the deepest clean possible you should get an upright vacuum. Although you could argue that a cordless stick vacuum will give you an easier cleaning experience so you vacuum more often which might result in a cleaner house, debatable.
Where they don’t do so well is that they’re heavy, generally speaking, stick and cylinder vacuums are lighter and more portable to drag around the house. Some of the big Dyson’s weigh a ton for instance, but those are being phased out for cordless stick vacuums.
Stick vacuums sound exactly as they are, a long stick with the motor at one end. Usually cordless but you do get corded stick vacuums. These are great for quick everyday cleaning and every year they get a little better. A lot of the new stick vacuums have some really good cleaning power, loads of suction and multi-use floor heads to get a deep clean of every surface.
Plus a lot change to handheld vacuums to get into the stairs and furniture which can be great for allergy sufferers if you combine it with a HEPA filter.
The Henry by Numatic, iconic right? Well he is the optimy of a canister vacuum cleaner, a small canister on wheels with a hose coming out the front. These small vacuum cleaners are easy to store, come as both bagged and bagless and do a pretty good job at cleaning. The more expensive Dyson and Miele vacuums are comparable to their upright counterparts.
The little disc vacuum cleaners that whirr their way around the floor somehow not crashing into furniture and scaring cats everywhere. These will surprise you at how good a clean they get. You can’t just replace your vacuum cleaner with them and you need to make sure you empty them often but for through the week with a whole house clean once a week or every two weeks you’ll notice your house is cleaner.
But let’s be honest, they’re more about having a cool gadget aren’t they? And that’s fine because they work well and clean your house for you, the future is coming!
Corded vs Cordless
When I started this site back in 2017 I was sceptical about cordless vacuum cleaners, batteries have a shelf life, after a couple of years they start to lose their efficiency and don’t last as long on a full charge. Plus the run time was about 20 minutes so why get a short life vacuum cleaner?
Well even in the last 3 years we’ve come a long way and now the batteries are getting better and better with run times of 40-45 minutes and 2-year guarantees on batteries that should last double that, with power fading, and then you can buy replacement batteries.
And the ease! To be able to vacuum the whole house by just picking up and going, no hassle with cable management, no hassle emptying or buying bags, just pick up and go. I’m sold, I’ve got a cordless vacuum cleaner and I’m not sure I’d go back now.
Bagged vs Bagless
More vacuums are bagless now, but they’ve been improved for easy empty so dust doesn’t explode across your whole house when you take the lid off if there’s no dust bag.
Bagging does trap dust better though, lift out the bag and put it in the big with no dust loss at all. But then you have to buy bags, and yes you can find universal bags cheaper but these tend to leak dust that gets into the motor and shortens the life of your vacuum cleaner so are false economy.
I like bagless vacuum cleaners but there’s not wrong with a bagged vacuum.
Other Features to Look For
Is it Lightweight
You have to push this thing around your house at least once a week if not more than that, so you don’t want to be pushing a fridge around your living room, right?
No, you want something comfortable but that does a good job, and there is a balance because heavier vacuums tend to have bigger motors for more suction power. If you’re elderly or you’ve got arthritis, weak wrists or you just don’t like heavy vacuum cleaners weight is a factor so lookout. About 10kg is the realm of heavy and 3-5 is the realm of lightweight but it depends on how the weight is distributed too, just something to be aware of.
Does it have a HEPA Filter
I always focus on these more because I’ve got Asthma so I need to make sure the air is clear, but even my wife who has healthy lungs noticed the difference when we got a HEPA vacuum for the first time. These are the best filters at removing allergens from the air but they also remove 99.9% of tiny dust particles out of the air, which has got to leave the air freshener when it comes back out the vacuum.
It also means you can vacuum away pet smell!
So not technically a must-have but I know I wouldn’t buy a vacuum without a HEPA filter.
You want to have enough suction power to lift dust off the floor, especially out of carpets, it can cling to the fibres so you need to have a strong enough vacuum. But power isn’t absolute, the EU brought in regulations to limit vacuum cleaners to 900W to make them more eco-friendly. The rest of the suction power comes from inside, in the Vortex technology, or spin technology, or whatever else a vacuum company has done to improve the suction power.
The easiest way? Look for some sort of manufacturer statement saying powerful suction, or have a read of reviews like this one and the ones you find on Amazon, you can quickly find out whether it’s got a strong suction.
Good Container Size
You want to be able to get as much of your vacuuming done in one go as you can, it’s annoying to have to go back and forth to the bin emptying the dust container over and over. For scale 0.6L is small, very small, and 2L+ is large, 2L still isn’t enough to get around your house but it’s more than 3 times as big as a small vacuum cleaner.
How Easy it Empties
Preferable you don’t want to have to stick your hand inside the canister to pull out clumps of hair and dust but sometimes that’s inevitable. You want an easy one-click opening of the dust container so you can shake it straight into the bin. Most new vacuum cleaners have this but it’s worth being aware of.
Which is better: Gtech or Shark?
Hard to say, I’m a big fan of Shark vacuums because of the anti-hair wrap technology I keep banging on about and I tend to recommend Shark more so I guess Shark is better.
Is Shark better than Dyson?
For the price I think Shark is better, they tend to be almost as good for three-quarters or half the price. So while Dyson is the most powerful vacuum cleaners I think but the lower price of Shark makes them the best choice.
Should you Vacuum or Dust First?
Always dust first, that way you can dust off shelves and surfaces onto the floor and vacuum it up. If you vacuum regularly the order doesn’t hugely matter but I always dust first and that’s what I got taught when I was helping my parents clean up the guest house they owned.
Are Expensive Vacuums Worth it?
It depends on how deep a clean you want. Yes, more expensive vacuum cleaners are stronger and provide a deeper clean, they’ve also got more features and generally last better, but they are more expensive. If you’re happy having an average clean and you’re not that into cleaning then a cheap vacuum might be the answer.
Are Bagged Vacuums better?
They certainly used to be, as I said bagless vacuums used to leave you with a cloud of dust that you’d immediately have to vacuum up. But now you can take your vacuum canister outside and into the outside bin before you have to open it. So they’re a lot more hygienic than they were and now they’re just as good as their bagged counterparts.
Other Vacuum Cleaner Reviews
Best Robot – Eufy RoboVac Wi-Fi Connected Robot Vacuum Cleaner
- Works with Alexa
- Strongest suction to date
- 100 minute run time
- Remote control operated
- Scheduled cleaning possible
- Brush bar blocks with dog hair
With a robot vacuum you’re not looking for a replacement for your proper vacuum, rather you want a quick clean up device that tidies up the place with ease.
And this is it, it’s got a good mapping function to make its way around your home and has an auto boost function that starts when it hits a place that needs a little extra power.
Pet owners won’t get on well because the brush bar tends to get wrapped up with hair and needs cleaned out every few days, but this is true for most robot vacuums.
It also comes with an app that you can use to set a cleaning schedule so the little guy heads out and does it’s thing, first thing before you get up is perfect then you can empty the dust chamber when you go downstairs.
It will go back to charge even before it’s finished and won’t come back out to resume again which is annoying, but with 100 minutes of run time it should be able to get around your whole house.
And this technology isn’t perfect so keep an eye to make sure it’s in it’s charging station.
But all round easy cleaning and a reasonable price make this an easy choice for the best robot vacuum. Sure others like the iRobot Roomba vacuum are technically better but they are almost three times the price!
Best lightweight – Hoover Whirlwind Bagless Cylinder Vacuum Cleaner
- Great for small house/flat
- Washable filter
- crevice tool and dust brush head
- Better on hard floor
This is also one of my top budget picks but at just 4kg you rarely get a lighter vacuum that isn’t a cordless stick vacuum.
It’s got reasonable suction power although it is better on hard floor than on carpet. But you know what? For the price it doesn’t do bad at all on carpet.
It’s small so easy storage and ease of use is unmatched, just plug in and go then empty as it gets full with an easy release canister.
It’s got a couple of attachments for a deeper clean, a crevice tool to get in and about your furniture and a dusting brush for reaching higher up.
Perfect for a small flat or house as it’s easy to carry up stairs. And the cord length is plenty long enough to get you around without having to swap sockets in every room.
Best Handheld – BLACK+DECKER Pet Dustbuster Hand Vacuum with Smart Tech sensors
- Filter sensor to alert cleaning required
- Beater bar for pet hair pick up and deep cleaning
- Charging station included
- 15 minute run time
- Only one power mode
Handheld vacuum cleaners need a few things in my mind, they need to be cordless, and they need to have a charging station.
Without a charger station to store them in they become clutter themselves and it’s much harder to keep them charged up for when you need them.
But, this can live in it’s station and a light indicates full charge so you can just switch it off at the wall but leave it plugged in so as not to fry the battery.
15 minute runtime is not the best but it’s not the worst, ideal for spot cleaning and furniture touch ups around the house but if you’re having a deep clean of the car it might run out before you finish. But if you do it frequently it’s perfect for whizzing around the car.
It’s got a beater bar brush head that spins to beat dust out of upholstery for a deeper clean that freshens up tired furniture. easy to use, comfortable to hold and a lot of suction for its size. An easy choice of the best handheld vacuum cleaner.
Best Car Vacuum – Black & Decker PD1200AV-XJ Black+Decker 12 V Flexi Auto Dustbuster
Type: 12v handheld Vacuum
- 5m Cable long enough to reach the whole car
- Works out of 12v car cigarette lighter
- Flip out brush head and crevice tool
- 1.5m long hose to reach under seats
- Easy empty
- Not as powerful as a regular vacuum
First off this won’t clean as effectively as a regular vacuum, it’s just not big enough to have that sort of cleaning power. BUT you have the small maneuverability that lets you get right in and about your car for a deep clean that way.
The main nozzle has a flip out brush for dusting up the seats and the floor and then an attachable crevice nozzle lets you get into the car seats and down the sides for a deep clean that way.
And it works out of the 12v cigarette lighter, just make sure the engine is running so you don’t drain the battery.
The cable is 5-meters long so you can get from the front all the way to the boot, even around the outside of the car, in even the biggest cars which is very important. If it can’t reach the boot it’s useless.
You can keep the box and let it live in the car which is useful and it’s super lightweight to hold while you make your way around the car. Perfect for cleaning up your car without the worry about battery life.
Best Stairs vacuum – Morphy Richards 732005 Cordless Vacuum Cleaner
Brand: Morphy Richards
- 2-in-1 stick and handheld vacuum
- Folds in half for easy storage
- 35 minute run time
- 5 hour charge time
- Not the strongest suction
- Not good or pet hair
This is a nifty vacuum, you can buy the handheld on its own and it’s pretty good, reasonable suction and lightweight with a shorter charge time.
But this comes with a stick vacuum attachment for other round the house cleaning, even a deeper clean of the stairs.
The 35 minute rim time is on the lower power mode and it’s more like 20 minutes on the higher power but that’s still enough to get your stairs clean and have a go on the furniture too.
It comes with a crevice tool to get right into the corners in the stairs and it’s got an upholstery brush to clean your sofa. It’s not a bagged vacuum cleaner but it’s easy to empty and empties directly into the outside bin.
Finally the whole thing folds in half making it short enough to fit in a tall kitchen cupboard. Everything you could wank to clean your stairs and spot clean around the kitchen.
Best Upright Vacuum – DC41 Animal Dyson Ball
- Powerful Suction
- Dyson Ball Technology for Easy Steering
- Lightweight for an Upright
- Filters Air While It Vacuums
- Self Adjusting Head
You just can’t beat a Dyson for unadulterated cleaning power.
It’s also got a lot of handy time savers, the ball head lets you steer easier so you’re not just going back and forth over the same spots again and again.
And it’s got an adjustable head so that when you roll from carpet to hard floor it auto-adjusts so you don’t have to flick switches or change heads.
The dust container isn’t the biggest so you have to empty it fairly regularly, this just makes sure it stays at maximum power for longer.
What about the pet hair? It will make short work of it! Even in carpets where long hair can tend to get stuck, it’ll be rid of it no problem.
Best Cylinder Vacuum – Dyson DC28C Cylinder Ball Vacuum Cleaner with Pet Tool
- Easy to move around
- Automatic cord rewind
- Good on all floor types
- Surprisingly large for a small vacuum
First off, this is a surprisingly large cylinder vacuum, it’s just a bit hefty all round, but the trade off with that is it’s superb suction power.
I actually like the Miele CX1 I reviewed further up for the best cylinder vacuum but I don’t like to repeat myself in an article so I thought I’d find a good runner up to feature.
And this is a fine choice, it’s a Dyson so you know you’re going to get some of the best cleaning power around but it’s also built on the Ball technology that means you can pull it in any direction and it will roll around and follow you, no tipping over!
It’s also got a low profile head so that it can easily get underneath the furniture. It’s also the only vacuum on this list to feature a mattress nozzle, as well as all the usual suspects that you don’t use but like to have, right?
It struggles a bit on deep pile carpets but on the whole it does a great job.
Best wet and Dry – Kärcher WD5 Wet & Dry Vacuum
Type: Wet and dry canister
- Auto filter cleaning
- Built in plug socket
- can connect to power tools
- Works on carpets too
- Blower function isn’t the strongest
This is everything you could want in a wet and dry vacuum cleaner, it’s got one head that can clean carpet and hard floors then that gets replaced with a wet head that has two wiper blades to gather up water that gets sucked up easily.
You just have to swap filters before you vacuum water which is a simple process.
It’s got an extremely large canister at 25L making it perfect for use in DIY and on building sites, the body is solid as well to handle larger bits of rubbish that might get picked up.
It also works as an extension lead with a socket on the front of the machine, although it’s more meant to plug power tools in to, you can even connect up a sander so that all the dust gets immediately vacuumed up. I’ve seen this done and it must catch 99% of the dust the sander is spitting out.
You couldn’t ask for a better, robust, strong suction, easy empty and large container. Easily the best wet and dry vacuum cleaner.
Best HEPA Vacuum Cleaner – Hoover Enigma Pets Bagged Cylinder Vacuum Cleaner
Type: Bagged Canister
- Bagged for easy cleanup
- Quiet vacuum at 66db
- 3.2 Litre bag capacity
- Hygienic bag closure
- on-board tool storage
- Not as powerful
- No roller head for carpet
This is your ideal vacuum for a small house, it’s quiet, it stores easily and it’s got a hygienic bagged system that traps in all dust it picks up so it doesn’t spew out into your house.
It’s also one of the quietest vacuum cleaners at only 66 db, that’s louder than a conversation but much quieter than a running washing machine.
It does have the pet tool which is good for furniture or a cat tree, but it doesn’t have a bigger roller head for carpets so hair just kind of clumps up.
But, it can still vacuum regular carpets, but it definitely does a better job with thin carpet and on hard floors that are wood, laminate or something similar.
And, it does of course have the all important HEPA filter, there are of course a lot of other vacuums on the list with the HEPA, I’d recommend one of the Shark’s at the top if you’re keen, but again I didn’t want to repeat myself so I thought I’d mix it up.
Finally you’ve got a 9m Radius to clean around, so again perfect small vacuum cleaner for a flat or small house.
Best Stick vacuum – V8 Absolute Cordless Vacuum
- Comfortable To Hold
- Easy To Empty
- 40 Minute Run Time
- Great On Carpets And Hardfloor
The Dyson V6 is a great little vacuum cleaner. You can charge it up in just 3.5 hours and it runs for 40 minutes!
Perfect for quick clean-ups. Not ideal if you like doing the whole house once a week or every two weeks but fantastic if you like to clean room by room throughout the week. I personally like to look in the living room and give it a tidy then vacuum.
You can empty it easily and it wall mounts so it doesn’t take up much space in the cupboard between uses. It charges in the mount as well but you don’t have to use it, it does charge away from that if you want it too!
Overall it was a close call but Dyson is an excellent choice for the best stick vacuum in the UK.
Best Window Vacuum – Karcher Window Vac WV 2 Plus for windows, tiles, mirrors & shower
Type: Window vacuum
- Leaves no streaks
- lightweight and quiet
- Easy Empty
- Spray bottle and cloth included
- Doesn’t work on its side to reach the bottom of deep window sills
There’s nothing worse than cleaning a window only to have it left with dirty looking streaks all over it. Enter the Karcher WV 2.
It’s got a microfibre and detergent bottle applicator so you can soap up the windows and then you hit it with the vac after to remove all the water and leave your windows streak-free and sparkling.
The motor is effective but you need to take it slow and unfortunately, it doesn’t work on its side as a regular squeegee does so it can be tricky to get to the bottom of the window if you’re sill is deep. Not impossible but a bit tricky.
It also works on mirrors, shower glass, tiles and kitchen counters which give it a bit more use around the house and help you to get your money’s worth out of it.
Best Ash Vacuum – De Vielle Cold Ash Vacuum Cleaner
Brand: De Vielle
Type: Ash canister
- large capacity
- 3 filters for cleaner clean up
- works inside and out
- 4 m power cable
There are no true hot ash vacuum cleaners because hot ashes would cause the motor to overheat, but this cold ash vacuum does a great job at cleaning up the next day.
It’s got a good-sized tube to suck up small pieces of charcoal leftover and has a 3 filter system to catch all the fine dust that is in and about the fire.
You’ve got a large tank so you can get all the work done before emptying.
The only place you’ll have problems (aside from using it wrong and vacuuming up too large chunks) is that it’s got a 4m cable, which can be a bit of a stretch to run straight from inside so you’ll need an extension cable to go alongside this.
All in all, you can’t go wrong though.
And there we have it! Wow, I’m impressed if you made it this far this is a near 6000-word article, you’ll be an expert too by now!
There are of course other great vacuums that can get an honourable mention, the Miele Complete C3 and the Dyson V11 absolute to name a few, plus I don’t have any Bosch or Bissell vacuums but I’m happy with my choices.
These are without a doubt the best vacuum cleaners in the UK, so I hope this was useful.
