As a home shopping editor, I spend my days researching, shopping, and curating the best of the best products. That makes me an expert in all things home, including vacuums. People often ask me what my favorite vacuum is, and I always tell them Dyson. You just can't beat the brand's mission to create sleek and efficient designs.
What most people don't know, (but luckily I do), is that the brand has a handful of models to choose from, but this can make finding the right one more difficult if you don't know the difference between them. The line ranges from upright choices to powerful cordless options in several variations, and even options for hard floors only. I've tried a few of its bestsellers, (because everyone I know has one), but my hands-down favorite is one of its newest pieces. The Dyson Micro 1.5kg Vacuum is its lightest and smallest choice yet. For someone like me who lives in a tiny apartment, it's perfect.
Don't let its small size fool you, the machine is powerful and sucks up everything in site.
The small size makes it easy to store and grab at any time. It weighs just three pounds, and is extra maneuverable, making it easy to reach every nook and cranny in my space. I'm talking in-between chairs, under beds, and even the back of my closet. Don't let its small size fool you, the machine is powerful and sucks up everything in sight. My favorite feature is its reengineered fluffy brush head — it's made to pick up even the smallest particles of dust, giving hardwood floors an extra squeaky clean.
With a run time of 20 minutes, it works perfect for my apartment. It comes with a handful of useful attachments that help me clean other areas in my home too, like the stairs or even couch cushions. Not to mention this is one of the brand's more affordable options, and definitely a good device to start out with if you're a first timer. Keep reading to shop it, as well as a few other bestsellers.
