The Shark Rotator Powered Lift-Away Canister Vacuum model NR96 is getting very solid reviews and ratings from owners.  This is the first canister vacuum we have seen with the lift away feature - a feature that allows you to carry the motor/dust-canister assembly with one hand and the hose/wand with the other.  Owners like the lift away feature in their uprights and they also like it in this canister.  The vacuum also has HEPA filtration, a retractable power cord and a low profile nozzle.  In addition, it performs well on carpet, bare floors and pet hair.   The unit is on the small side however and this is reflected in the smaller nozzle and the dust canister.


Avg. consumer rating = 81/100 

The Bissell Zing 1668 is a small, bagged canister vacuum.  It is lightweight, compact and easy to carry.  It is designed for bare floors, rugs and carpet but performance on carpet isn’t particularly good as the floor nozzle does not have a brushroll.  It does perform fairly well on bare surfaces however and the unit is very affordable at well under $100.  This vacuum is very similar to the Bissell Zing 4122, and we believe it is actually the replacement for the 4122.


Avg. consumer rating = 93/100 

The Miele Complete C2 Limited Edition canister vacuum is a favorite with owners.  It gets very good ratings and comments and is a great fit for homes with bare floors, low pile carpet and some area rugs.  The machine is not such a good fit for those with deeper pile carpet.  It is a quiet, well built vacuum with variable suction and an auto-rewind power cord.  However genuine Miele bags are not cheap and some folks feel that the power cord is too short resulting in the need to frequently plug and unplug the vacuum when moving from one area to another.


 Avg. consumer rating = 69/100 

This is a rather futuristic-looking bagged canister vacuum cleaner designed for both bare floors and carpet.  It is fairly quiet and it has strong suction, a retractable power cord, two cleaning heads, and suction controls.  It is also equipped with HEPA-level filtration.  However, consumer comments and ratings to date are not particularly encouraging.  The ergonomics seem lacking and owners often complain of awkward features and tools that do not perform as well as expected.




Avg. consumer rating = 72/100 

The Bissell 1535 OptiClean canister vacuum is adored by some owners but disliked by others.  Folks who are happy with their machine point to its light weight, ease of use, and compact size, however those less enthusiastic allude to problems with suction, poor performance on carpet, and limited cleaning reach.  Overall consumer ratings for the 1535 are a little disappointing but the vacuum is quite affordable.


Avg. consumer rating = 82/100 

The Oreck Commercial BB900DGR XL Pro 5 is a compact, bagged canister vacuum that is meant to be carried.  The machine is well liked for its over-the-shoulder carry strap, light weight, host of cleaning tools, lengthy cleaning reach, and solid suction.  However, some folks have issues with the unit’s short, somewhat inflexible hose and the loose fit between the hose and the extension wand.  Some owners really love this vacuum while others are not impressed.  Overall consumer ratings are fairly average.


Avg. consumer rating = 94/100 

The Miele Complete C3 Cat & Dog Canister Vacuum Cleaner gets excellent ratings and reviews from owners.  It is also an attractive, well-built machine.  Consumers praise the unit’s quiet operation, ability to pick up pet hair, strong suction and robust filtration features.  It also comes with separate cleaner heads for carpet and bare floors, and the carpet tool is motorized so it is capable on low, medium and high pile carpet.  This is an expensive vacuum cleaner however and at most retail outlets it will set you back over $900.  



Avg. consumer rating = 84/100 

The Bissell 1161 Hard Floor Expert is a bagless canister vacuum designed for cleaning hard surfaces such as tile, wood or linoleum. It can also clean carpet but is only useful on very low pile carpet and area rugs.  The 1161 is also lightweight so it is easy to maneuver and carry, and it is compact so it doesn’t require much storage space. Its small size may limit its practicality in larger homes however, and the short power cord frustrates some owners.


Avg. consumer rating = 94/100 

The SEBO Airbelt D4 canister vacuum cleaner is made in Germany and while on the heavy side, it is a solid and durable machine.  Consumer ratings a very good and owners praise the vacuum for its exceptionally long cleaning reach, quiet operation, strong suction and cleaning ability on all manner of flooring.  This is also a bagged machine and the bags are nice and large.  The D4 is not cheap however and it will set you back over $900.



Avg. consumer rating = 83/100 

The Electrolux UltraFlex EL4335A has been getting some good consumer ratings. This bagless canister vacuum has a washable HEPA filter and a sealed system which make it ideal for those suffering from allergies or asthma. It is also designed for bare floors and low-to-high pile carpet, and comes with specialized bare floor and carpet nozzles. The pros outweigh the cons with this vacuum, however there are a few issues such as the narrow cleaning path width and smallish dust canister.


 Avg. consumer rating = 94/100 

The Miele S2121 Delphi canister vacuum is designed for bare floors and low-to-medium pile carpet.  It has recently been renamed to the "Miele Classic C1 Delphi Canister Vacuum Cleaner".  It is now blue in color but otherwise the same machine. It has variable suction as well as a host of other features. In addition, high consumer ratings suggest that it is indeed well-liked by its owners. The vacuum is also quiet, lightweight and not too large. However, it does not come with a specialized bare floor tool (like it’s more expensive brother, the Titan) and some owners feel this is a drawback.



Avg. consumer rating = 69/100 

The Electrolux Access T8, model EL4071A, gets very average reviews and ratings from consumers.  It is one of the lowest rated Electrolux vacuums we have investigated.  The main drawbacks are its limited effectiveness on carpet and short power cord.  These two shortcomings are an issue for quite a few owners and comments bear this out. It would only be fair, however, to point out that under the right circumstances – a smaller home with mostly bare floors for example - the T8 does appear to perform adequately.



Avg. consumer rating = 88/100 

The Bissell Zing bagged canister vacuum (model 4122) is a fairly simple machine and it doesn'’t come with a lot of frills and features.  It is also very inexpensive at around $50.  Owners are giving it great reviews and feel that it is lightweight, maneuverable and easy to store.  It is a good fit for a smaller home or apartment but it performs better on bare floors than carpet.



Avg. consumer rating = 96/100 

The Alize is a fantastic canister vacuum but it is important to understand what you are buying before you purchase.  Miele makes a wide range of canister vacuums each with a host of different features and attachments.  The Alize is a great machine for cleaning smooth surfaces like hardwood floors, tile or vinyl.  It is also effective on flat weave rugs and low pile carpet.  However – with its existing set of attachments – it may not be the best choice for homes with lots of carpet (especially medium to deep pile carpet). 



Avg. consumer rating = 84/100 

This is the next generation of the OptiFlow vacuum from Panasonic and most consumers like it.  This unit gets better consumer ratings than the previous model.  Owners report that the new OptiFlow has good suction, attachments that work well, and that it is very easy to switch from bare floors to carpet mode.  Some folks feel that it is a little heavy however and that the edge cleaning ability is limited.





Avg. consumer rating = 81/100 

If you want an inexpensive lightweight canister vacuum for bare floors then the Eureka AirExcel may fit your needs.  But if you have lots of carpet to clean this machine is probably not the best choice.  Owners like the unit’'s powerful suction, relatively quiet operation and retractable power cord but lament the lack of a brushbar in the nozzle which impairs its performance on carpet..



Avg. consumer rating = 92/100 

Let’'s cut to the chase.  The Miele S6270 Quartz is a great vacuum IF you have lots of bare floors to clean and a few area rugs or a small amount of low pile carpet.  It is not the best machine for a home or apartment with lots of carpet - especially medium to high pile carpet.  The floor tool has no brushbar which limits its performance on deeper carpet.  Aside from this the Quartz is lightweight, very quiet and powerful. It also has effective filtration, variable suction and is well built.



Avg. consumer rating = 79/100 

This is a lightweight and maneuverable canister vacuum with a motorized brushbar making it capable on both carpet and bare floors.  Owners like that it is quiet, powerful and even has multiple suction settings.  However some consumers wish the UltraActive Deepclean EL4300A had more on-board storage for attachments.



Avg. consumer rating = 84/100 

This is a very inexpensive canister vacuum cleaner and consumer ratings are quite good.  But the machine is far from perfect.  It is best suited for smaller area cleaning and it does not excel on carpet.  Also the fit and finish are not exemplary and a number of owners complain that it feels cheap and “plasticky”.  Having said that, for its low price tag it does deliver with respect to bare floor cleaning and many owners praise the unit for being lightweight and having strong suction. It is sometimes seen online for less than $50.



Avg. consumer rating = 75/100 

The Dirt Devil EZ Lite canister vacuum - model SD40010 - gets some good consumer ratings and some bad consumer ratings. But there are enough bad ratings to make one wary. It is well-liked for its light weight, easy maneuverability and bare floor cleaning capabilities, but it does not excel on carpet and many owners find it hard to push. There are also quite a few grumblings regarding poor suction and the difficulty of cleaning the dust canister.  Given the frequent “"I love it"” and “"I hate it"” owner reviews the EZ Lite seems something of a gamble.


Avg. consumer rating = 89/100 

The Red Velvet (model S6270) is part of Miele'’s latest series of canister vacuum cleaners, the S6 series.  The Red Velvet is rather unique with its soft red velvet finish on the canister surface.  The vacuum is best suited for smooth flooring and low pile carpet as the brushes in the nozzle are air-driven.  It also includes an AirClean filter, several attachments, a stainless steel telescopic wand, suction controls and a 7-year warranty on the motor and vacuum casing.  Consumer ratings, while few, are very good.


Avg. consumer rating = 69/100 

The Bissell Pet Hair Eraser 66T6 gets very average ratings from consumers.  It is something of a “love it” or “hate it” machine with a number of owners giving it 5 stars out of 5 and a similar number rating it 1 or 2 stars out of 5.  Detractors feel that the suction is poor, the power cord is too short and that the vacuum just doesn’t perform on carpet.  Those that like the 66T6 highlight its light weight, pet hair removal capabilities and retractable power cord.


 Avg. consumer rating = 94/100 

The Miele Capri is the latest addition to the popular S2 series of canister vacuum cleaners.  It is a step up from the more affordable Olympus as it has both carpet and bare floor tools (as opposed to a combination tool) and it gets very good grades from consumers.  Owners praise its powerful suction and also like that it is lightweight and quiet.  However like all of the machines in the S2 series the power cord is a little short. (2016 Update: This is now called the Classic C1 Capri and ratings are still top-notch.)



Avg. consumer rating = 87/100 

Never has a vacuum cleaner elicited so many “I love it” and “I hate it” consumer comments at the same time.  There are many 5 star ratings but also quite a few 1 or 2 star reviews.  Owners praise the vacuum for its strong suction, ability to pick up pet hair, easy maintenance, and low profile nozzle, however there are also comments that the dust canister has to be emptied frequently, the hose is short and the nozzle is hard to move on bare floors. 



Avg. consumer rating = 85/100 

The Electrolux EL6984A UltraSilencer is a lightweight and extremely quiet bagged canister vacuum cleaner.  It gets top grades from consumers for it’s ability to clean hard surfaces (wood, tile, lino, etc) and for its quiet operation, but seems to fall a little short when cleaning carpet (in particular deep-pile carpet).


Avg. consumer rating = 94/100 

If you want quality and don’t like to compromise then the Miele Capricorn may be the right vacuum cleaner for you.  It is made in Germany, has a life expectancy of some 20 years, and comes with many, many features.  The Miele S5981 Capricorn is the top end of the Miele Canister vacuum cleaners and, as expected, it also gets very good ratings from owners.  The downside of this machine is that it is expensive.


Avg. consumer rating = 83/100 

The Electrolux Ergospace Green gets fairly good reviews and is lightweight, easy to maneuver and very quiet.  It works well on hardwood floors and is environmentally friendly being made in part of recycled plastic.  The vacuum is also packed in unbleached recycled cardboard. The brushbar is air-driven however and while the Ergospace is effective on bare floors some owners report that it does not excel on carpet.



Avg. consumer rating = 59/100 

Consumer reviews are on the low side for the Hoover S3865 Platinum Cyclonic Bagless Canister Vacuum.  Despite this, the Hoover.com site states that is has been rated as a “Best Buy” by Consumers Digest.  Comments from those who have purchased the vacuum indicate that it does a great job cleaning both hard surfaces and carpet and that the unit has very strong suction.  However it is quite heavy and the power cord is short.


Avg. consumer rating = 95/100 

Manufactured in Germany and new for 2010, the Miele S2 series of canister vacuums range in price from about 300USD for the Olympus to about 600USD for the Titan.  It can be a little confusing determining which S2 canister is the right one for your needs.  In this review we describe what the Miele Olympus, Miele Delphi and the Miele Titan have in common as well as where they differ.  Additionally we discover some of what consumers think of this relatively new Miele S2 vacuum cleaner series.


Avg. consumer rating = 66/100 

On paper the Electrolux Ultra Silencer EL7060A sounds impressive.  It comes with many features including a sealed HEPA system, suction control, automatic cord rewind and a 5-year warranty.  It also has powerful suction, is lightweight and is very quiet.  With all of these qualities one would expect this Electrolux canister vacuum to get great consumer ratings – but ratings are lackluster.  Owners allude to a number of issues and while some do like the machine there are a sufficient number of low ratings to make one take notice.



Avg. consumer rating = 90/100 

Miele has been around for over one hundred years and they have been manufacturing vacuum cleaners since 1927.  The S2 series of canister vacuum cleaners is fairly recent and the top model in this group is the Miele S2180 Titan (Recently renamed to the Miele Classic C1 Titan).  The Titan gets good ratings from consumers and is capable of cleaning all manner of flooring from bare floors to low and medium pile carpet.



Avg. consumer rating = 78/100 

There isn’'t much consumer input on the LG Kompressor Plus PetCare LcV900B canister vacuum but the input that can be found is generally not too bad.  Owners are pleased with the machine's powerful suction, washable filters and easy-to-empty dirt canister.  It also gets good marks for having controls on the handle and being very effective at pulling up pet hair.  It does tend to be a little on the heavy side however.


Avg. consumer rating = 85/100 

Very much a “no bells & whistles” bagged canister vacuum, the Eureka 3684F Pet Lover nevertheless gets good ratings and reviews from consumers.  It is also fairly inexpensive at around the 100USD level (at certain outlets).  Consumers like the fact that it is very lightweight, compact and good on hard surfaces, but point out that the short power cord and low quality vacuum hose are shortcomings.


Avg. consumer rating = 79/100 

The Dyson DC26 Multi-Floor City Vacuum Cleaner is the smallest canister vacuum Dyson manufactures and it is indeed small.  So much so that the body of the vacuum will fit on a letter sized sheet of paper.  It is also powerful (especially for its size) and, as one would expect rather light.  The Dyson DC26 has most of the features of the larger Dyson canisters, however due to its size it is probably best suited for vacuuming smaller areas.


 Avg. consumer rating = 88/100 

The Miele Leo is powerful, lightweight and quiet - a tough combination to beat.  It is part of the S5 series of vacuums which are Miele'’s high-end machines and they come with a host of features and options.  Consumer ratings are not widely available for this vacuum but those found indicate a high level of satisfaction.


Avg. consumer rating = 83/100 

The Eureka Sanitaire SC3683A is considered a commercial vacuum but plenty of folks seem to be using it in their homes.  Consumers like the fact that it is small, light, powerful and HEPA ready, although there are some comments about it being better on hard surfaces than carpet.


Avg. consumer rating = 90/100 

The Hoover Commercial Portapower Vacuum, or Hoover CH30000 as it is also known, is fairly new to the market and is the replacement (new version) of the Hoover Portapower C2094.  This is a compact, portable vacuum with good suction and plenty of attachments.  It is also not too expensive.  Consumer reviews and comments on this vacuum indicate that it is a well-liked machine.  Also, the star ratings from virtually every source are very good.


Avg. consumer rating = 65/100 

The Hoover S3670 WindTunnel Bagged Canister vacuums gets good grades from some consumers and poor grades from others.  People like the vacuum'’s strong suction and stylish looks but are unhappy with its poorly designed hose and overly-plastic construction.



Avg. consumer rating = 83/100 

The consumer ratings and comments for the Panasonic MC-CG902 Canister Vacuum Cleaner indicate a fairly high level of consumer satisfaction.  This vacuum was also recently given a best buy rating from a popular consumer magazine.  Folks that use this machine like the quality attachments, retractable power cord and the fact that it is good on hard surfaces however some lament that it does not come with a handheld turbine attachment for cleaning pet hair from stairs or upholstery.


Avg. consumer rating = 78/100 

The Miele S4212 Polaris canister vacuum gets average grades from consumers.  It is the least expensive of the Miele S4 series of canisters and is recommended for short-pile carpet, area rugs and hard surface floors.  Consumers like the Polaris'’ light weight, variable suction and extremely quiet operation.  On the downside the power cord is a little short.



Avg. consumer rating = 61/100 

The Electrolux EL7055B Twin Clean is a bagless, canister vacuum cleaner with a self-cleaning filter system.  It is not getting great ratings from owners, but it comes with several tools and is purported by Electrolux to be effective on bare floors, hardwood, stairs, carpets & rugs.  Consumers feel it is better on carpet than on bare floors however.


Avg. consumer rating = 81/100 

The Bissell Lift-Off MultiCyclonic Pet Vacuum (model 89Q9) is a bagless, upright with a number of great features - detachable canister, headlight, HEPA filter, 30 foot power cord, 15 inch cleaning path, rotating brush power on/off switch, etc.  Bissell indicates that the unit is good for both carpet and bare floors.  It gets decent consumer reviews and is not too expensive (under 200USD).


Avg. consumer rating = 91/100 

Like many of its canister brothers the Miele Olympus vacuum cleaner (recently renamed to the Miele Classic C1 Olympus vacuum cleaner) receives high grades from consumers.  Owners praise the vacuum for its powerful suction yet quiet operation.  It is also very effective on bare floors. However if this unit has a weakness it is likely its limited cleaning ability on carpet.  On very low-pile carpet it is ok, but it struggles with anything deeper than this.


Avg. consumer rating = 70/100 

The Electrolux EL6988E Oxygen Canister Vacuum Cleaner is a lightweight, quiet, bagged vacuum.  This vacuum also comes with HEPA filtration and consumers do feel it is effective on most surfaces.  It is a little expensive however and some folks feel the bags are on the small side.


 Avg. consumer rating = 81/100 

With a score of 81/100 from consumers the Miele Neptune stands out as a good example of a solid canister vacuum.  The Miele Neptune is lightweight, compact and powerful.  It is not a machine however for deep pile carpet but it excels when applied to low or medium-pile carpeting, area rugs and smooth flooring.



Avg. consumer rating = 54/100 

Hoover has a number of cyclonic canister vacuums on the market and the Hoover SH40060 is one of the least expensive.  It is not widely available and you won’t see it for sale on too many online retail websites (but it can be found at the likes of Amazon, Walmart and a few others).  It comes with a lot of features and is noted by owners for having strong suction, washable filters and a powered brushbar.  However it does have some issues.




Avg. consumer rating = 92/100 

The Dyson DC23 Motorhead vacuum cleaner is not the most popular Dyson and there is little written about this particular machine.  However the few consumer reviews available do give it good ratings.  This is a bagless, canister vacuum with tremendous power and like most Dysons is fairly expensive.


Avg. consumer rating = 77/100 

The Hoover S3755 WindTunnel vacuum gets mixed reviews although it has been recommended by a leading consumer magazine.  It comes with all the bells and whistles and consumers like the fact that it is powerful, easy to maneuver and has good attachments, but a number of folks feel that the dirt canister is too small and requires frequent emptying.



Avg. consumer rating = 84/100 

Consumer ratings for the Dyson DC23 TurbineHead Canister Vacuum are good -  not stellar - but typically greater than 4 stars out of 5.  For a Dyson it is not too pricey (depending on where you purchase) and it is said to have strong suction, work well on bare floors & rugs, and to be aesthetically pleasing (a lot of folks mention this).   On the other hand it is not as effective as the Dyson DC23 Motorhead on carpet due to its air driven brushbar.



Avg. consumer rating = 92/100 

The Miele Callisto is part of the Miele S5 series of vacuums.  The S5 series are Miele'’s higher-end canister vacuums, with the S4 and S2 series being typically more affordable.  The Callisto has been around for some time and is now paired with the new SEB228 Heavy Duty Powerhead (for both high and low-pile carpet) and the SBB300-3 Parquet Floor Brush (for bare floor cleaning).  This canister vacuum gets very good consumer ratings and is said to be powerful yet still quiet.



Avg. consumer rating = 76/100 

Panasonic is a well known company providing modern appliances to households & businesses worldwide, but they are not particularly well-known for their vacuum cleaners. They do, however, have a fairly wide range of both household and commercial vacuums.  One of their popular canister vacuums is the Panasonic MC-CG885 OptiFlow Lightweight Bag Canister vacuum cleaner. 


Avg. consumer rating = 77/100 

The Eureka ReadyForce 900A is a very inexpensive canister vacuum (about 60USD on Amazon).  For the price it also gets reasonable consumer reviews.  Ratings for this unit used to be better but they have dropped in recent years.  If you have a lot of hard floors and are looking for something light, easy to maintain and not too loud then this could be a good choice.  However if your house has a lot of carpet you may want to consider other options.


Avg. consumer rating = 98/100 

There are two Miele S4212 vacuums - the S4212 Polaris and the S4212 Neptune.  The base model, the Miele S4212 Polaris is the replacement for the Miele S4210 Carina.   It should be noted that the S4212 Polaris is entirely the same vacuum with the same features as the S4210 Carina.  The only difference is the color - the Polaris is a light blue color (baby blue) while the Carina is a light yellow.  Like the S4210 Carina, the S4212 Polaris is the entry level Galaxy S4 series Miele canister vacuum, and like the Carina it is recommended for short-pile carpeting, area rugs and smooth flooring.


Avg. consumer rating = 92/100 

After a number of comments asking us to review the likes of Miele, Lindhaus and Sebo we have undertaken our first Miele review.  Were we impressed?  Well, yes actually.  We typically have reviewed some of the more moderately priced brands of vacuum cleaners and the three aforementioned can be a bit pricey, however the Miele S4210 (Carina version at least) can be found at some websites/stores for under 400 USD.  Not cheap but then again not over the top for a machine with fantastic reviews and a 7 year motor warranty (yes – 7 years).



Avg. consumer rating = 83/100 

A short but sweet review of the Dirt Devil 082500 Breeze Bagless Canister vacuum.  This vacuum cleaner gets fairly good reviews and is also relatively inexpensive for a canister vacuum.  Consumers indicate a number of pros and cons but in general feel that it is a good buy for the money -– particularly for hardwood floors.



Avg. consumer rating = 68/100 

We’'ve looked at several Oreck upright vacuums in the past and we’'ve run into some pretty good machines - some even made our list of best upright vacuums.  So we wanted to see what Oreck was doing with respect to canister vacuums.  The Oreck Quest MC1000 is unfortunately quite underwhelming.  Consumer ratings are low and many owners feel the machine is cheaply made and not well designed.
