List of Best Rated Vacuums – Making it Easy to Choose

without comments

When I decided to buy a vacuum cleaner I wanted the best of the best, so I scoured the internet reading every review I could find before testing them out in stores.

This is a list of the top 3 best rated vacuums that I found to be worth the investment.

Relaxing With Vacuum Cleaner

Miele S2121 Olympus

The Olympus is a canister vacuum with a list price of approximately $360. At 16 pounds it is surprisingly lightweight and its hose has a 29.5 foot cleaning radius (in terms of reach).

Additionally it allows for up to 6 levels of suction power which can be adjusted using a rotary dial. Its attachments include-

  • Dusting brush, crevice and upholstery tool.
  • A combination floor tool which can be used on carpets and bare floors.
  • A stainless steel telescopic wand.

It is powered by Miele’s own ‘Vortex Motor System’ with an output of 1200 watts and in spite of all this power it is very quiet. What’s even better is that it comes equipped with automatic shut-off features for safety.

Other features include a storage bracket on the side of the vacuum for its attachments which saves space and separate 7 year warranties for both the motor and the body.

Bissell CleanView 9595

At $79, this is one of the cheapest handheld vacuums weighing in at 18 pounds. It’s exceptionally powerful, and could even be considered one of the best portable vacuum cleaners currently available at this price. Unlike the Olympus, this machine from Bissell comes with an innovative brush tool which sucks up more dirt faster.

The cyclonic action of this vacuum ensures that the filter never gets blocked which in turn allows for steady suction power during use. Its dust tank is transparent so you know when it’s time to empty it and its filter is easy to detach and wash.

The package includes the following attachments-

  • Extension wand.
  • Crevice tool.
  • Dusting brush.
  • 6 foot hose which is expandable.

Furthermore its cord is 25 feet long which makes moving around a room simple. The entire machine also comes with a two year limited warranty.

Hoover WindTunnel T-Series UH70120

Like the BISSELL mentioned above, the WindTunnel is also a handheld vacuum cleaner with a transparent dust cup so you know when it is time to clean it. It also costs a fraction more than the CleanView at $99.

While the Bissell uses Cyclone Technology to ensure steady suction, this device uses WindTunnel Technology to achieve the same. Its cord is longer at 27 feet, than the former machine and unlike either of the other two machines it incorporates HEPA technology which can suck up almost 99{1337f55b4c5475b1289c41484fcd8a193601a59704e2242ee2f7bdd5b55913fd} of allergens.

While the suction power on this machine cannot be adjusted its height can be increased by 5 points. The package also includes-

  • Crevice tool.
  • Dusting or upholstery brush.
  • Extension wand.
  • Powered hand tool.

This vacuum by Hoover is also the heaviest at 23 pounds and comes with a 2 year warranty.


Top Rated VacuumsIn this review, price is certainly not a factor because even though the Miele vacuum cleaner is quite expensive it is by no means the best among these vacuums. I agree with Cleaniatric on this and consider all three of these vacuums to be at par with each other, which is why these devices are among the best rated vacuums currently available in terms of suction power, performance and design.

Your ultimate decision to purchase one of them therefore should be based on differences in weight and certain specifications as well as your own budget.

Before you even consider buying a handheld device, or a full sized vacuum for that matter, you should read as much about it as possible. Reviews, customer feedback, and comparison sites are a good place to start.
