If you’re looking to spend nearly $1,000 on a vacuum cleaner, Dyson is an obvious choice for reasons beyond aesthetics, although the look and feel of a Dyson can make your life richer.
More practically, the Dyson Outsize Absolute+ stick vacuum offers up to 120 minutes of battery life, which will probably allow you to vacuum your entire house before putting the machine back on the charger. With an overall score of 91 from Consumer Reports, this cordless vacuum earned 5 out of 5 for performance on hardwoods and bare floors, including edges.
The vacuum cleaner comes with two replaceable 25.2 Li-ion batteries and two chargers. It can also be converted into a handheld vacuum with a handy crevice tool, 2-in-1 molded nozzle/brush, dusting brush, motorized pet hair brush, furniture vacuum and soft brush head for bare floors.
While this Dyson model earns the gold star for handling pet hair, some reviewers are scoring points for its super strong suction, which can sometimes be a problem on more plush carpets. At 7.8 pounds, the Outsize Absolute+ is no small beast, regardless of its impressive maneuverability.
Dyson design enthusiasts who also have large homes, furry pets, and lots of short carpeting will appreciate this model.
