I have a Dyson upright vacuum. It was a gift from my awesome mother-in-law. With the exception of Fred, it’s probably the best present I’ve ever received. If you had told a younger version of myself that I would be excited about getting a vacuum as a gift I would have laughed at you, long and loud. But I love that darn vacuum.
Except… I live in a two story house with a finished basement. There is a full set of stairs heading up to the second floor and another heading down into the basement. Both flights of stairs are carpeted. Both are high traffic areas that get dirty. And vacuuming those stairs is one of my least favourite chores, ever.
Carefully lugging the Dyson up one step at a time and swiping it back and forth on the narrow steps. Ugh. My vacuum, which in reality is pretty light, suddenly feels like it weighs two thousand pounds. I usually talk my husband into doing it (and I don’t exactly think it’s his favourite chore either).
Those darn stairs are just one reason I am excited about the new Dyson Cinetic Big Ball canister vacuum which just came out yesterday. I would never speak ill of my lovely, lovely, Dyson, but those bleeping stairs have had me wishing I had opted for a canister version. And this newest update to Dyson’s canister line-up looks pretty amazing. Check out some of these features:
Other vacuums tip over and stay down. The Dyson Cinetic Big Ball canister is the only vacuum that self-rights when toppled. Dyson engineers made this possible by assembling the vacuum’s components in a spherical array, with the heaviest nearest to the floor. Placing them inside a curved body with a low centre of gravity means that whenever the vacuum is knocked over, gravitational forces will automatically return it to its upright resting position.
Core components are housed within the ball, allowing the vacuum to turn on the spot and follow you effortlessly around the home. No awkward moves.
Hygienic dirt ejector
As the bin is emptied, a silicone collar slides down the shroud. This scrapes off trapped dirt and debris, removing it completely. There’s no need to touch the dirt or reach inside the bin. Plus, the bin is 33 per cent bigger than previous Dyson vacuums.
The wand’s articulated handle now rotates in three directions, allowing 360° movement for easy, versatile cleaning with less effort. The wand is longer than previous Dyson vacuums, extending up to 125cm. And because the hose is kept closer to the wand, it reduces the machine’s storage footprint.
The only vacuum with no dirty filters to wash or replace.
Dyson Cinetic vacuums captures the microscopic dust before it hits the filter.
Dyson Cinetic science
Dyson Cinetic Big Ball features 36 Cinetic tips that separate the microscopic dust that clog other vacuums. Vacuums with Dyson Cinetic science do not lose suction, and capture dust, dirt and microscopic particles down to 0.3 microns in size. The dust separation is so efficient there’s no need to wash or replace the filter.
I’m excited to get my hands on one of these shiny new machines and test it out. Never loses suction, no filters to wash, and even self-rights itself when knocked over, I mean, doesn’t that sound like the dreamiest canister vacuum ever?
