Most Efficient & Powerful Vacuum

 

After renting appartments for so many years I grew tired of having to use those pre-war, suction-less vacuum cleaners "provided" by the landord. I recently moved to my own place and number 1 item was a Dyson, the best vacuum ever! It stands in its own...

Love it!

 

I love my Stowaway! The suction is so much better than my old vacuum. The reason I gave it a 4 star is because the stick part is too large to fit behind most of my furnature. If it was less bulky I would have given the vacuum 5 stars. Other than that I...

Dyson Vacuum does not live up to the hype

 

I am not at all happy with the Dyson Canister. It is too expensive and it does not do the job well. The unit is stiff and awkward to use. The attachments that come with the unit are ineffective. The round brush is sparse and stiff. I like to use this...

This vacuum sucks :)

 

If you have a lot of carpet in your house get this vacuum. This cleans your carpets and you will be amazed what the Dyson will get out even after you vacuumed with a different vacuum prior. The money is a good investment. I have mine now for more than...

not worth the money.

 

my husband bought this vacuum for me last year. I have never had a cannister vacuum before. I do not like it. It is very hard to tote around. You can't just roll it where you need it. And I have trouble getting the handle to lock into position. I do...

Absolutely the best vacuum I have ever owned!

 

Absolutely the best vacuum I have ever owned! I am a neat freak and keep a very clean house. I was absolutely amazed at how much cleaner my floors are now that I have a Dyson vacuum cleaner! I love that you can actually see the dirt that is being...

Product Specifications

For most people the act of housecleaning isn't an automatic (or positive) behavior. It is, nonetheless, necessary. So you want it to be as efficient and as easy as possible. Say hello to the Dyson DC21 Stowaway Bagless CanisterVacuum Cleaner. It may even change the way you feel about cleaning your home. Using its patented Root Cyclone Technology the Dyson DC21 actually separates dirt from air. Because it doesn't rely on bags or conventional filters, the end result is remarkable suction that thoroughly cleans nearly any carpet and surface in your home, and significantly reduces the amount of bacteria and mould you breathe. The wide 12.5 inch cleaning path picks up more dirt and dust, and a large debris channel allows larger pieces to be filtered in the canister. A versatile brush control function can be adjusted to protect delicate carpeting or thoroughly cleans hardwood and vinyl flooring, and the 12 foot hose with several handy attachments makes it easy to vacuum harder-to-reach places where dust and dirt accumulate. A user-friendly design allows the DC21 to maneuver around your furniture with the slightest turn of the wrist while the automatically retracting 16.4 foot power cord gives you extended reach and better access in every area of your home. Clean-up is a snap - with the hygienic and easy-to-empty bin. Finally, the washable filters are easy to clean and never need replacing.
