The 10 Best vacuum cleaners

view gallery VIEW GALLERY


1. Morphy Richards' Never Loses Suction


The "Never Loses Suction" cleaner does what it says on the tin. It's easy to assemble and use and has great attachments.

2. Sebo D2 Total


The D2's filter traps virtually all dust to leave the air free of allergens. It also boasts an extra-long power cable and foam bumper around the base to prevent scuffs.

3. Miele S7210


This has been voted a Best Buy by Which?, not least because it has a reach of more than 11 metres, it's outstanding on all floor types and easily reaches under furniture.

4. iRobot Roomba 555


The iRobot does the vacuuming for you, thanks to its sensors to navigate, detect dirtier areas and find its own way back to the charging station.

5. Bosch BSGL4000GB


Nifty features of this cylinder vacuum cleaner include a pop-up power button so you can adjust the suction and a storage area to fit all your nozzles. A great all-rounder.

6. Nilfisk Power Allergy


We defy anyone to find a quieter machine and yet it provides top-notch cleaning on both carpets and hard floors. It also locks away the smallest dust particles.

7. Numatic Hetty


The iconic "Henry" has long been the builder's choice of vacuum cleaner. Hetty has all the power and capacity – as well as the wide range of accessories – of her brother.

8. Miele Red Velvet S6730


This cylinder vacuum cleaner is lightweight, has excellent manoeuvrability, boasts a powerful 2,000W motor and is outstanding on carpets and cleaning right to the edge.

9. Dyson DC41 Animal

£389.99, (available on Thursday)

This cleaner generates ultra-strong suction power and is incredible at removing dust, dirt and pet hair from the largest of homes.

10. Black & Decker Orb-it


The Orb-it is brand new and at 4.8V is just what you need for small spillages and quick clean-ups. It's available in six colours and is both compact and very cool.
