I have had a LOT of little stick vacs. My mom got me one years ago, it broke and I bought a hover and I liked it alright, but its beater bar started not working so well, so I found this little gem on Amazon (and of course, I bought it on Kohls.com with a coupon) — I think it was about 100.
O.M.G. This guy could substitute for a real vacuum if you were totally in a vacuum bind. It really does an AMAZING job. Here are my loves of it:
2. While its dirt cup is a little hard to figure out at first it’s great to actually get the dirt in your garbage, unlike other ones where I had dirt around the garbage and in the garbage. I mean, what good is sweeping if that happens?
3. Suck, suck, suck. It does an amazing job. Peas, beans, cheese, you name it — this guy sucks it up great.
4. It stands upright on its own. I know this sounds silly, but our other one kept falling over and this has been a nice change
I only have a couple of dislikes:
2. I wish its head was a bit larger, but it’s also nice to have it a little smaller to do tight areas, so maybe this isn’t a dislike. Never mind.
Anyway, I love this vacuum, it’s a MUST when we live in our small house with children who haven’t met a plate that they’d prefer to lean over then sit back in their chairs and eat like pregnant women.
