Best Vacuums We Reviewed
1. Dyson V8 Fluffy Cordless Stick Vacuum Cleaner, $446
Customized cleaning options, includes mini cleaning tools, asthma- and allergy-friendly
With customized cleaning options, the included miniature cleaning tools and its asthma and allergy-friendly design, it’s no surprise that Dyson’s V8 Cordless Vacuum was the best I tested. I use it a few times a week because it’s so unobtrusive to maneuver.
With this model, I’m still impressed by how lightweight it is, yet its head is effective and durable, too. It also transforms into a handheld vacuum that’s great for your car and staircase area.
2. Shark Wandvac Cordless Self-Empty System Vacuum, $330
Great for small spaces, thoroughly cleans your home, stylish and modern aesthetic
The Shark Wandvac Self-Empty System is the brand’s first cordless stick vac with self-empty technology. It’s ideal for small spaces like mine (such as apartments, bathrooms, or dorms) but is powerful enough to tackle messes that pop up throughout the day anywhere in your home.
Not only is it designed to clean your entire home, but it’s also sleek enough to leave it where it will be most convenient to grab when you need it. We’d go as far as to say that with its stylish color, design, and small footprint, you might even want to show it off.
The Shark Wandvac Self-Empty System really is as great as it seems. It’s lightweight and powerful, easily moveable, features a self-cleaning brush roll, and reduces emptying dust exposure by up to 100x compared to traditional vacuums.

3. Dyson Omni-Glide Cordless Vacuum, $450
Lightweight design, great for gliding into corners, can be mounted on the wall, easy to empty
Not practical for deep-cleaning sessions, not ideal for textured carpets
At first, I was skeptical about Dyson’s Omni-Glide. It looked too small out of the box to be effective, even though I knew its quality (driven by the Dyson name) would be high. After months of using it, it’s the one I most often resort to for my bedroom and smaller spaces for a quick tidy.
Its velvet-spinning head is too exceptional not to mention. Coupled with its lightweight size, this model glides into corners exceptionally well, living up to its name. Plus, you can store it with the included wall-mounted charging dock to keep it upright or position it horizontally underneath your bed or couch. It’s that lightweight and compact.
4. Roborock S7+ Robot Vacuum and Sonic Mop, $950
Memorizes your home’s floor plan with its mobile map feature, easy to clean, doesn’t leave any dust on the floor
It can be difficult to return the vacuum to the dock from room to room
First things first — let me start by saying that, yes, $950 is rather steep for a robot vacuum, even if you don’t mind the price tag. But the quality, precision of cleaning, multi-tasking ability and ultra-modern functionality are quite unmatched.
I didn’t think robot vacuums were all the rage, if I’m being honest. After all, won’t a cordless stick vacuum do the job? Spoiler alert: they do, as mentioned in the Dyson vacuums review, but with the Roborock S7+ Robot Vacuum and Sonic Mop, I’m able to work my 9-to-5, read a few chapters of my book, paint my nails and even shower. It’s not only life-changing but life-giving.
What’s great about the Roborock S7+ is its ability to recognize and remember your home’s map. While I remove any shopping bags or shoes from my hardwood floor before setting it to clean, it does a wonderful job of avoiding furniture legs and even has the built-in smartness to recognize textured carpet and power on to a higher speed.
Moreover, the paired app is extremely useful. You can pause a clean at any time and you’ll receive a notification when it’s finished cleaning and on its way back to its charging dock. (Yeah, it’s that disciplined.) The dust bin is simple to remove and it’s easy to clean afterward; a simple damp rag over the bottom will do.
Explore other Roborock models that fit into your budget, too.
5. Dyson V7 Animal Cordless Stick Vacuum Cleaner, $412
Incredible suction power, great for cleaning in hard-to-reach places
Slightly heavier than other cordless vacuums tested
Similar to Dyson’s V8, the V7 Animal has slightly better suction power and is just a bit heavier. Much like the Omni-Glide, it snuggles into corners well, which is impressive given its head is wider and tougher than its slimmer counterpart.
The V7 Animal was one of the first models to make cordless vacuums a tried-and-true necessity, too. I’ve gotten everyone in my family hooked on its power and it truly doesn’t disappoint, especially for the $400 price point that’s a one-time fee for a lifetime of cleaning.
6. Dyson V12 Detect Slim Vacuum, $650
Precisely cleans your home, has an LED screen that tells you how it’s cleaning, has a longer run time compared to other models tested, can detect dust well
Has a more expensive price point than other models tested
If you’re looking for a newer model with incredible suction and smartness (thanks to its slim-detect LED screen), the Dyson V12 is hard to be beaten. Not only is it the best modern vacuum, but it runs for a full hour of deep-cleaning without needing a charge.
What’s more, it’s Dyson’s “most compact intelligent cordless vacuum,” boasting laser technology that shows you exactly what it’s cleaning and how it’s cleaning it. This model is pretty spectacular, and super easy to maneuver (it doesn’t even feel like cleaning after all).
7. Dyson Ball Animal 2 Upright Vacuum Cleaner, $391, original price: $500
Excellent for deep cleaning, stands upright, amazing for textured carpets
Quite heavy, has a cord, isn’t as versatile as some other models tested
I’ve had the Dyson Ball Animal 2 Upright Vacuum Cleaner as the sole carpet-cleaning device in my household for as long as I remember. Though it’s heavy and cordless — minor inconveniences after testing the brand’s cordless stick models — it does a ferocious job of deep-cleaning textured carpets.
From shag to Berber, this model collects fine dust and debris exceptionally well. If you prefer heavy-duty vacuums, I recommend it, though cordless models have that convenience factor you may want to consider.
More of the Best Vacuums of 2022
1. Shark Navigator Lift-Away Upright Vacuum, $200
Well-priced at $200, the Shark Navigator Lift-Away Upright Vacuum is a wonderful picker-upper, many thanks to the included crevice tool that helps dust away debris and pet hair. It’s also lightweight and portable for easy cleaning all throughout the house (especially if you have stairs).
Just as great, HSN offers this vacuum with a five-year manufacturer’s warranty in case anything goes awry, though with this stellar model from a stellar brand, we don’t anticipate any hiccups.
2. iRobot Roomba 678 Robot Vacuum, $233, original price: $300
Ah, the robot vacuum that’s known for its smart abilities to make cleaning a snap. For less than $300, it’s a more affordable robot vacuum than the Roborock S7+, boasting the same WiFi connectivity. Plus, it has a patented three-stage cleaning system that picks up both small particles and larger debris.
3. Black+Decker Dustbuster AdvancedClean Cordless Handheld Vacuum, $59
Sometimes, a trusty handheld vacuum will do the trick. Black+Decker’s Dustbuster is a great cleaning tool to have on hand for less than $60. Its portable, lightweight nature coupled with its slim-nozzled, ergonomic design makes it perfect to keep in your back pocket.
4. Hoover OnePwr Evolve Cordless Upright Pet Vacuum Cleaner, $170
Hoover’s OnePwer Evolve Cordless Vacuum is an Amazon’s Choice product, and for a good reason — when a cord-free cleaning tool is less than $200, is lightweight and well-equipped to pick up pet hair, you run.
Also, this model is a standout for working well on hardwood floors and carpet alike.
5. Shark Anti-Allergen Pet Power Cordless Stick Vacuum, $350
Slim body aside, Shark’s Anti-Allergen Pet Power Cordless Stick Vacuum is fairly priced for its Dyson-like functionality. It runs for up to 50 minutes of cleaning, has a powerful brush head and even transforms into a handheld vacuum to tackle just about every crevice in your home.
6. Eureka WhirlWind Bagless Canister Vacuum Cleaner, $80
For one of Amazon’s top-rated canister vacuums, consider the Eureka WhirlWind. For less than $75, it has three settings for carpet, upholstery and hard floors and is especially ergonomic for maneuvering over your couch cushions and mattress.
Also, it’s bag-free, so all you’ll have to maintain is its washable, reusable filter. Its easy-to-use, two-in-one crevice tool is a nifty feature as well.
7. Bissell Featherweight Stick Bagless Vacuum with Crevice Tool, $34
For $34, you truly have nothing to lose. We can practically feel how lightweight Bissell’s Featherweight Stick Vacuum is through the computer screen and appreciate that it comes with a crevice tool for more convenient cleaning.
8. PrettyCare Cordless Vacuum Cleaner with LED Touch Display, $110, original price: $150
You don’t have to spend hundreds of dollars on a robot vacuum to have a smart cleaning device in your home.
We’re so glad we discovered PrettyCare’s Cordless Vacuum Cleaner — a powerful tool that’s similar to Dyson but with an LED touch display to control the suction level. For less than $150 right now, it’s worth adding to your cart.
9. Eufy by Anker BoostIQ RoboVac, $200, original price: $229
As one of the most affordable robot vacuums we found, Eufy by Anker’s BoostIQ RoboVac is a less-than-$200 option that’s slimmer than most — so apt for smaller spaces. It’s also much-loved for being impressively quiet and for upping its cleaning speed when hovering over carpet.
10. Dreametech Cordless Vacuum Cleaner, $300
While cleaning efficiency is a priority, Dreamtech’s Cordless Vacuum Cleaner also graces your home with a sleek white and gold exterior that’s too minimally chic not to love.
Specifically, this model has a powerful brushless motor, up to an hour of runtime and a five-layer filtration system to capture even the most minuscule dust particles. It’s one of our favorites, by far.
11. Samsung 90 + CS Bundle Jet Cordless Stick Vacuum, $715, original price: $793
Not only known for its fabulous Picture Frame TV, but Samsung also has a new device in town: its Jet Cordless Stick Vacuum. Though it’s a splurge, it has a five-layer filtration system like Dreametech’s model, too, and an automatically emptying dustbin to make cleaning an easy-breezy process.
