The Kenmore Canister Vacuum is an awesome vacuum. For starters the first thing you notice is the cool sleek green look. It is very shiny and colorful so if you are like me and leave your vacuum in the kitchen or hallway it won’t look bad. It also comes in a cool yellow color. It may come in other colors.
Of course Kenmore is a trusted name, so that helped me in making my decision to go with it. I was very glad I did. This is one powerful vacuum. It has great suction power, cutting my vacuuming time a lot which I really love. It works great! It has several attachments that are part of its great performance rating. The attachments go on easily and allow me to get cracks, crevices and even the furniture. I cannot say enough about this how well this vacuum works. It is also extremely quiet in comparison with the vacuums I have owned in the past.
I really like the fact that it is easy to use. The handle has a great comfortable grip and it adjusts to several positions so there is no more bending and back aches as with other canister vacuums that I have had experience with in the past. It is very light weight and wheels around easily. I really love the canister feature because it makes it a lot easier to vacuum stairs and such. Another one of the reasons I went back to a canister type vacuum from an upright. It is so much easier to use and maneuver. I also think that they get clogged up a lot less than a upright. I have had mine for quite a while now and have had no problems with it losing suction power.
This vacuum seems to be very sturdy. It takes the bumps and bangs from stairs and corners well and keeps right on going at full force. I know people that have had other model Kenmore vacuums and they lasted for many years and worked just as good as the day they bought it. I have no doubt that this one will last for several years also.
When it comes to price I did give a little more than I would have for some of the upright vacuums. I gave about one hundred forty dollars for it. An up right can run as cheap as fifty but I really believe that the performance and ease of use more than makes up for the extra amount of money I spent. The replacement bags are not the cheapest but they are not outrageous either. They are also very easy to change out.
I would recommend the Kenmore Canister Vacuum to anyone who is looking for a vacuum that will keeps its power, is easy to use and will last a long time. It gets an A in my book for sure!
