Vacuum cleaner reviews


We test over 70 vacuum cleaners in the CHOICE labs, including models from Dyson, Hoover, Miele and more.

Last updated: 2nd March 2015

With so many options on the market, it's hard to know where to start on the quest for a new vacuum. We dumped a lot of dirt and pet hair on the CHOICE lab floors to test and review more than 70 vacuum models, priced from $69 to $1599.

Our reviews tell you which vacuum cleaners:

  • are best at removing dirt from carpet
  • are best at removing pet hair
  • are best at getting into corners and edges
  • are the best at a quick clean
  • are the easiest to use
  • are the quietest
  • have the best range of extra features
  • will cost you the least to run over 10 years.

And check out our CHOICE Buys to quickly see which ones we rate the best overall.
