1. Dyson Cyclone V10 Absolute Cordless Vacuum Cleaner - £449

In the world of hoovers and vacuums, Dyson needs no introduction. They are universally acknowledged as world leaders and for creating the best vacuums for a full variety of surfaces. However, with so many to choose from where do you start? Well, we have started with one of their most popular models - the brilliant Dyson 10

Basically, an upgraded version of the V7 this version is bigger and more powerful than earlier models. We found it to be the perfect Dyson vacuum for daily use. With full-size suction power and a 40% bigger bin the Dyson Cyclone V10 vacuum can effectively clean anywhere and lasts longer. Fitted with a powerful motor which drives its nylon bristles into the carpet, the Dyson digital motor V10 generates the suction power of a full-size vacuum in a handheld model; it was one of the most powerful of all the cordless versions we reviewed. Plus this upgraded version lasts up-to 60 minutes. Additional soft roller cleaner head captures large debris and fine dust simultaneously. The Dyson V10 is therefore gentle on hard floors and tough on dirt. The headline benefits of the Dyson Cyclone are:

  • Powerful suction - the best for a cordless vacuum in all our tests
  • Suitable for all surfaces - for carpets, hard floors, stairs and upholstery
  • Lightweight - 2.68kg
  • Long battery life - a charge time of 3.5 hours and vacuuming capability of 60 mins
  • HEPA filter - traps small particles and pet dander, making it excellent for allergy sufferers
  • Pet tool included  - as well as crevice nozzle, upholstery nozzle, dusting brush, turbo brush and combination floor nozzle

VACUUM CLEANER UK REVIEWS SUMMARY: This was an outstanding and powerful cordless vacuum cleaner. It was awarded joint overall winner in the cordless vacuum sector. It was suitable for all uses, however, we felt that the powerful suction and long vacuuming time would make it great for large households where lots of speedy but high-performance cleaning was needed.  It's easy to see why this cordless and bagless Dyson is so popular - it's because it's brilliant.

2. Shark Lift-Away Upright Vacuum Cleaner - £249

Another market leader in the hoovering and vacuuming world is Shark! They produce high-quality but well-priced hoovers in a variety of models. The first of theirs we look at here is The Shark Lift-Away - which can only be described as no ordinary vacuum cleaner! The reason we love this top Shark hoover is its ease of use and versatility and like a real-life shark this model seeks out its prey (dirt) and effectively removes it! Watch out Jaws! 

One of the beauties of the Shark Liftaway is that it can instantly convert from an upright to a portable vacuum cleaner - so its like getting two hoovers for one. Plus Lift-Away Hoover Technology allows you to comfortably clean stairs and hard to reach places - good for household and also those that don't want something too heavy. We found that the main benefits of this great Shark vacuum cleaner were the below:  

  • Powerful - good suction means that this cordless vacuum cleaner delivered a strong performance across all our tests.  
  • Lightweight - one of the leading light-weight performers in our best vacuum cleaner guide, we found it perfect for those looking for an easy to use vacuum cleaner.

3. Henry Hoover Vacuum Cleaner - £109

No vacuum cleaners review would be complete without Henry The Hoover! And don't forget his sister Hetty The Hoover! It's no lie to say that Henry has been putting a smile on people's faces for years now. Dare we say he makes hoovering and vacuuming fun for the family? Well not far off!

Let's be clear though, this isn't a gimmick hoover, he knows how to do the job too. As a lightweight vacuum cleaner, he is used by families and tradesmen for all kinds of jobs. He is in fact the most popular personal hoover in the office at Professional Cleaners UK - which we think is praise indeed! Henry The Hoover's top features include:

  • Large capacity - he can keep cleaning for longer than most models with a large six-litre capacity, this basically means you have to empty him less. 
  • Energy-efficient performance - with no gimmicks, Henry and Hetty are straight forward vacuum cleaners and get straight to the job, helping you save money on your bills. Yes, they basically keep your electricity bills down and save you the pennies to spend on more exciting things. Plus with an energy rating of A, you can vacuum for as long as you need to in the confidence that the HVR160 is economic and efficient, without compromising any capability or suction power.

  • Cheap price point - one of the most affordable on the market!
  • 10m power cable - you won't be constantly changing plug sockets as you vacuum, taking the hassle out of cleaning and allowing you to finish up sooner. 

So that's the Henry HVR160 Cylinder Vacuum Cleaner - ideal for smaller households as he can be stored in small storage spaces - we are glad to have him and Hetty in our best vacuum cleaner 2019 guide. 

BEST VACUUM CLEANERS REVIEW SUMMARY: Families love him. Tradesmen love him. We love him! Henry is a highly recommended model, delivering value for money and top cleaning results. Highly recommended for all and winner of our best cylinder vacuum.

This Gtech vacuum cleaner was a very strong contender with Gtech's latest innovation in vacuum cleaning coming in at a mid-range price tag. The features and performance did easily elevate this above your standard household hoover.

An intelligent machine that judges the surface it's cleaning, hard or soft, the Gtech Mk2 is able to adjust its settings without the user having to do anything. The Gtech AirLOC system is built-in and efficiently sucks in even the smallest of dust particles and thinnest of hairs as well as managing larger items, giving a cleaning power that’s second-to-none.

5. Bosch Athlet Runtime Cordless Vacuum Cleaner – Marron Glace - £379.00

The Bosch Athlet Runtime+ is a professional grade vacuum cleaner now available to purchase by the public. Its bagless suction is unmatched by other household machines thanks to its expert sensor technology.

It has built-in sensors to the machine monitor the airflow beneath it, and as it lowers, a red light illuminates to notify you of the lessened performance. The dust box can then be emptied to immediately regain full cleaning control. The all-power floor brush can power through carpets, laminate and hard flooring, and is easily removed for cleaning so any stray hairs can be pulled out. To maintain Bosch’s commitment to environmental-friendly practices, the filters are removable and washable; just wash, dry, and replace!

An accessory kit is included with a hose, shoulder strap, and an assortment of nozzles to clean out even the most awkward of crevices, upholstery and car interiors. No spot is left un-vacuumed and nothing too small or too big to brush up. The kind of quality clean you’ll find with the Bosch Athlet Runtime+ is usually reserved just for professionals in the industry, but now you can bring it home for you too.

6. MIELE Complete C3 Pure Power Vacuum Cleaner - £149

Miele is a name everyone knows and a brand people trust in, it is synonymous with quality across all its products from vacuums to washing machines. It is no surprise, therefore, to see this top Miele vacuum cleaner enter our best vacuum cleaner review, with this high-performance traditional model which offers great value for money and is brilliant for home and small communal area use. 

In our tests our teams at Professional Cleaners UK found it to be a great vacuum, with it's best, stand-out features including:

  • Powerful cleaning performance across the entire home - it was great on all surfaces with the ability to clean dirt and dust off both carpeted and hard floors. The floorhead delivered a strong suction, achieving impressive results even on the lowest power setting - time after time! 
  • The AirClean filter discharges pure air from the vacuum - with 890W of power the Miele Complete C3 Pure Power effortlessly removed even the most stubborn dirt and thanks to its AirClean filter, it won't recirculate dust back into the air. Bonus!
  • It has a large operating radius (basically a long cord over 12 metres long!) - which saves time switching between power points. This is especially good in busy households where time to clean may be limited.  
  • Easy to use with ergonomic design and clear controls - thanks to its ergonomic design and 360° rotating hose this great vacuum cleaner feels comfortable to use whether you're left or right-handed. The controls are simple and can be found at the bottom of the unit with images to illustrate the cleaning options. No need for pesky instruction manuals!
  • Additional accessories made cleaning upholstery and skirting boards simpler - we found that those tricky corners and fabrics were not so tough to clean with the Miele Complete C3 Pure Power. With a crevice nozzle and dusting brush, it was easy to remove dust and cobwebs. The upholstery tool also made light work of cleaning sofas, fabrics and even curtains, while every accessory can be comfortably stored in the vacuum cleaner, so you won't go losing bits and pieces.

BEST VACUUM CLEANER REVIEW SUMMARY: A lovely and traditional model which delivered very good cleaning results at a good price.

8. Dyson 360 Eye Robot Vacuum - £799

No surprise to see another Dyson enter our charts and the burning question is - "which Dyson is the best vacuum ever made" - could it be this?" Well this, their latest model - the 360 Dyson - is their current top of the range model and surely the ultimate of all vacuum cleaners? Let's have a look at this superb robot vacuum cleaner. 

Well, to be honest, we loved it. But what makes this model so special? We'll try to explain why this is the best Dysons vacuum cleaner ever... so, the Dyson 360 Eye robot has eight cyclones (yes 8!), all of which have been fine-tuned to increase airflow and generate "powerful centrifugal forces" - that's strong suction to you and me! And my goodness in our tests we found it powerful. The old saying "good things come in small packages" is true! The second point, well it's a robot, so it does the hoovering for you. You can even control and programme this Dyson hoover from your smartphone. Thirdly, it looks amazing! In summary:

9. VAX Blade Cordless Vacuum Cleaner - £149

 

 

The Vax Blade is another favourite with the teams here. Achieving great results time after time it is often seen as a more affordable version of the Dyson brand and is a brilliant lightweight, powerful and attractively priced handheld option. People often ask "what is better a Blade or a Dyson?" - it's a tough question - but here are a few facts about this powerful performance cordless vacuum to let you decide for yourself:

  • Direct Helix Technology - the Vax Blade offers the convenience of a cordless vacuum, however, importantly it manages to maintain the power and performance of a more standard upright vacuum cleaner. This is due to Vax's innovative Direct Helix Technology which creates a direct air path from the floor to the cyclone – making the Blade super-powerful and efficient. 
  • Clean your entire home without needing to recharge the battery - a superpower battery gives you up to 35 minutes of cleaning with a consistently high level of suction so you can clean your home from top to bottom on a single charge - no messing!
  • Smarter cleaning with clear controls - ergonomically designed for ease of use, the slim and lightweight Blade offers enhanced versatility and balance for effortless cleaning at all times. It also means you can unpack and use straight away without having to read through any manuals. 

So, the question in the battle of Blade vs Dyson... which is the best? Well in our tests we found that the cleaning result differences were minimal - they are both brilliant - if anything the Dyson performed slightly better. That said, The Blade vacuum has a longer battery life and continually comes in over £100 cheaper. 

BEST VACUUM CLEANER UK REVIEW SUMMARY: A powerful and performance-based handheld model with strong suction. Key selling points include a longer battery life than most cordless models and a brilliant price point. Highly recommended.

12. Hoover Cordless Handheld Vacuum Cleaner Wall Mountable - £59.99

 

A super-dinky small handheld vacuum from Hoover makes an entrance in our best vacuum cleaner guide. Not for full household cleans but we found this was great for cleaning sofas, cars, spillages, pets and more. So if you are looking for something handy and compact this Hoover cordless is definitely worth a look!

We all know that cleaning the inside of your car can be tricky but the SM156DPN made it a breeze. It was also good for small offices; getting under desks and tight spaces as well as cleaning kitchens and small bathrooms. The cordless and lightweight design made it easy to manoeuvre - weighing only 1.61 kg - and it was also popular with more elderly people who wanted to do light cleaning on a regular basis. The main benefits were: 

  • Pet cleaning - in the UK we love our animals but removing cat and dog hair from our furniture and sofas can be difficult. The SM156DPN has good suction and importantly a Pet Turbo Head which makes it much easier to pick up any hair!
  • Handy Tools - with a collection of handy accessories and tools to help you keep your home spotless, it's an adaptable little model. 
  • Easy to use and decent battery life - you get 11 minutes of full-powered usage time from the SM156DPN plus it has a built-in indicator which makes it easy to spot when you need to recharge, this is important so that you don't run out of battery mid-task!
  • Decent size storage and wastage bin - the bin has a capacity of 0.5 litres and is easy and hygienic to empty which we love. This is quite a good size for a small hand-held vacuum. The release is controlled by a simple trigger, so you don’t come into contact with any of the dust and dirt.

BEST VACUUM CLEANER AND BEST VAC REVIEWS SUMMARY: A lovely handheld and bagless vacuum, it was dinky and had a limited battery life but it performed well when fully charged and ready for action. Small and perfectly formed it's not the most powerful version on the market but as with most Hoover models it offers great value for money.

13. Sebo Automatic X7 ePower Upright Vacuum Cleaner - £299.00

The Sebo Automatic X7 is stunning from first-glance; with a minimal aesthetic mirroring traditional upright cleaners… but with the functionality of modern machines included. Our teams loved this surprise entry. 

Powered by an intelligent computer control system, you never need change switch settings while in use. Instead, the brush head height is automatically adjusted as it moves from one-floor type to another – you never need to stop or start between rooms or different areas of the home. What’s more, the Sebo Automatic X7 will shut down if a blockage is detected to avoid any performance loss.

The Sebo ‘ultra-bags’ used within are tear-proof and filter residual dust particles from the air without clogging using electrostatically charged microfibres. The sealing cap on each ensures that you don’t spill any dirt or dust while changing and emptying; so this is a bagged vacuum that rivals the cleanliness of a bagless.

BEST VACUUM CLEANERS REVIEW SUMMARY: A lovely and stylish model we really loved the performance and looks of this fab Sebo vacuum cleaner. A trendy upright is hard to find but here is a great one for you traditional hoover lovers!

14. Dyson V7 Motorhead Cordless Vacuum Cleaner - £249.99

 

Meet the brilliant Dyson 7 - engineered to clean on all floor types and although this popular model has been upgraded by newer models including the Dyson V8Dyson Animal and Dyson V10 this cheaper model remains a firm favourite. 

This sleek and stylish top Dyson hoover literally excels on any surface and is perfect for everyday use. However, deeper cleans are also no problem with the direct-drive cleaner head removing ground-in dirt from carpets, thus allowing it to achieve results not typically expected from a light handheld model. The powerful suction generated by the Dyson digital motor combined with up to 30 minutes of fade-free suction means that most of the hoovering can be done in one swift cleaning session. It also comes with a docking station which charges the machine - so it's ready to use at all times. 

BEST VACUUM CLEANER REVIEW SUMMARY: A brilliant vacuum cleaner offering consistent results, this is a fantastic choice for families and small households who need quick but top-class results. The price is also a great selling point when compared to other leading Dyson models. Highly recommended.

15. Hoover Whirlwind Upright Vacuum Cleaner - £54.99 (SALE PRICE)

 

Hoover is such a famous brand in the vacuuming world that they actually are a verb (to hoover!) It's only right therefore that one of their vacuums is in our best vacuum cleaner guide - so here it is the Hoover Whirlwind!

Yes, prepare to breeze through your cleaning chores with the Hoover Whirlwind, a great priced lightweight vacuum with an A rating for energy efficiency - to be honest, it may look old fashioned and traditional but that doesn't mean it doesn't get the job done. It was a thoroughly good and solid performer. This top hoover vacuum combines a long 2.5m stretch hose for easy reach and also comes with extra on-board attachments and accessories for cleaning in hard-to-reach places – which is great for vacuuming (or hoovering) stairs and furniture. The price is the real selling point here - it is one of the cheapest upright vacuums around - and that is one of the reasons it has entered our guide to the best vacuum cleaners 2019.

BEST HOOVER SUMMARY: We found that this suited people who favoured traditional upright vacuums at a cheap price. Whilst this vacuum wasn't one of the prettiest or most powerful on the market its price was a total knockout.

16. Karcher CV 30/1 Professional Upright Vacuum Cleaner - £299.95

No surprise to see Kärcher’s CV 30/1 upright vacuum cleaner in our best vacuum cleaners review.

This supermodel uses a high-performance motor to drive both the suction fan and brush which makes this machine both easy to carry and manoeuvre. We believe that it's perfect for professional cleaners, particularly for use in office environments and areas of high footfall.

  • Excellent professional cleaning - the corrugated suction hose is also very easy to remove, this enabling blockages to be cleared quickly and effortlessly for speedy cleaning. 
  • Patented centrifugal coupling - for a longer service life (again great for professional and hard-use), centrifugal coupling protects the entire brush head against overload, therefore, avoiding high service costs. 

BEST VACUUM CLEANERS REVIEW SUMMARY: Fantastic cleaning results for those who are looking for a vacuum which can deal with tough stains and take a lot of work. It's hardy and easy to use nature makes it a recommended model for professional cleaners.

17. Dyson V7 Trigger Handheld Vacuum Cleaner - £199

Our final vacuum in the best vacuum cleaners guide is a super powerful handheld bagless version - you guessed it - from Dyson! Our teams loved this version - like a little superpowered cleaning rocket! It was the best of the handheld hoovers in our best vacuum cleaner guide combing great results with a stylish and sleek appearance. In our professional tests we found that the top features were:

  • Hygienic bin ejection - we think that is so important with a handheld option to be able to empty them easily. This version basically allows you to get rid of dust and debris without having to touch it. 
  • 30 minutes running time - the Dyson V7 Trigger runs for 30 minutes. Yes, you heard right! This gives you plenty of time to clean every room and also makes it ideal to clean the crumbs out of your car, down the back of your sofa, pet hair or accidents. 
  • Tool and accessories - handy tools also aid accurate cleaning around skirting boards and tough to reach areas in your home where others can't get to!
  • Mini motorised tool removes ground in and deep dirt- for tougher dirt, you can switch to MAX mode for 6 minutes of extra power or a powerful mode for longer everyday cleaning, this option is something not expected of a handheld model!
  • Looks amazing - as with all Dysons it looks stunning!

BEST HOOVERS & VACUUM CLEANER REVIEW SUMMARY: Powerful suction, looks great and with 30 minutes of cleaning, this was the best handheld vacuum in our guide. Highly recommended. The Dyson V7 Trigger was the best of all the smaller handheld models we reviewed.

Reviews on Vacuums Cleaners and the Best Hoovers

Obviously which vacuum cleaner is going to be personally the best for you will differ depending on your needs and the type of usage required. The most suitable type of vacuum or hoover for you will be determined by the below variables and you should take these into consideration before buying your vacuum and selecting from our best vacuums of 2019 guide. In our independent vacuum cleaner review we took on board the following:  

  • Budget - obviously how much you are wanting to spend will have an effect and huge bearing on which model (eg, Dyson, Hoover, Miele) you choose to purchase. A vacuum is typically quite an expensive investment for anyone so it's always good to have an idea of what you want to spend so you don't go over your budget.
  • Pets (Bagless vacuum cleaners) - if you have pets you will need a vacuum for everyday use (best hoovers for pet hair as covered above), and one that is easy to use - as it's likely you will be using it a lot! We all know hairs and muddy paws can get everywhere so you will need a vacuum cleaner able to deal with this. The most effective and best vacuum cleaner for pets we found at Professional Cleaners UK were those which offered a strong suction but also (very importantly) didn't get easily clogged up by fur or mud. There is nothing more annoying! We also found that bagless vacuums are great for this type of job as they can often hold more hair and therefore need less emptying, which can be tricky and messy. In our top vacuum cleaning tests, we found that upright vacuum cleaners performed bests in these tests, with strong suction and the fact that almost all of these come with a range of special add-ons.
  • Personal space - do you have a house or a small apartment? If you have a smaller home, a small and powerful vacuum is probably good for you. 
  • Tricky spaces - do you have stairs or tricky places? When purchasing think about how you might realistically use it. Even our professional teams find that stairs can be tricky places to vacuum or hoover. We find that stick vacuum cleaners and lightweight vacuums often do a brilliant job on stairs as they are light and easy to use whilst old fashioned uprights (or barrel vacuums as they are sometimes known) also perform strongly as they have detachable parts and add-ons which can get into tricky corners, nooks and crannies easily and effectively.
  • Storage - is storage space a problem or do you have room? Those living in smaller flats often don't want a big vacuum - it is worth thinking about where you will keep it before buying.
  • Model preference - do you prefer lightweight vs heavyweight vacuums? Do you like a vacuum with or without a bag? Would you like one that is corded or cordless? Do you prefer a stick or an upright? There is lots to consider! Whilst some people also have a preference for brands such as Dyson, Hoover etc. 
  • Children - children can be messy... try to think about how you may use your vacuum on a daily basis if you have children. 
  • Types of floors to clean - think about your bespoke needs... do you have carpets, tiles, hardwood floors or a mixture? Most people do – in which case you want to make sure that the vacuum cleaner is able to work across a variety of surfaces easily. In our tests, we found that the best vacuum for hardwood floors are those with bristles as this will stop scratching. Depths of carpet can also influence which type of vacuum is best.  

Which Vacuum Cleaner is the best hoover for me?

Upright vacuums, Lightweight vacuum cleaners and Cordless Vacuum Cleaners (Best Cylinder Vacuum Cleaner)

These are a great choice for many and the perfect all-purpose vacuuming on all surfaces - they are what many would consider being a traditional vacuum cleaner! Uprights can vary wildly in both model, version and prices (as shown in our best vacuum cleaners guide above) and one of the main benefits of upright vacuums we believe is that they come with multiple attachments and bespoke accessories. An upright vacuum is also known as a barrel vacuum cleaner, which is one which sits on the floor ground with a hose. We believe that upright cleaners are excellent when used to clean large areas. 

Lightweight, handheld held hoovers, handheld vacuum cleaners and car vacuum cleaners

These types of vacuums are relatively new. Initially, these types of cleaners were known for being handy but not often great on performances with low suction. Over the last few years, however, they have developed to become more reliable, powerful and popular as outlines in our best vacuum cleaners guide where we look at two models in great detail. 

Robotic vacuum cleaner

Robot vacuums! Once considered a thing of the future they are now, very definitely here... yes you can sit back and automate your cleaning.
