You deserve a new vacuum. There, we said it. It’s 2019, and it’s time to stop pushing around that old, semi-functional dinosaur and upgrade to a new, efficient vacuum that takes the work out of cleaning.
Now that we got that out of the way, here are 10 of the best vacuums on the market right now, courtesy of Amazon and its reviewers. Whether you’re partial to upright, canister, or robot vacs, you’ll likely find the perfect option for you and your budget right here on this list.
Nearly 8,000 5-star reviews? Color us intrigued. This bagless vacuum from Bissell boasts “OnePass cleaning technology,” so it cleans up more in less time, and reviewers say they’re blown away (or should we say, sucked in) by its suction power.
This vacuum even looks powerful. This professional-grade, mid-price upright vacuum from Shark has a HEPA-grade filter to remove allergens from your home, and you can detach the canister for more portable vacuuming experience.
Plus, it apparently looks like a sci-fi creation, as people compare it to a Ghostbusters backpack and a Star Wars Stormtrooper, writing that “half the fun is assembling different vacuum assault configurations and doing away with all the Rebel Scum under the couch.”
This Dyson Ball upright vacuum is designed to “seal in” suction on both carpets and hardwood flooring, giving you a more thorough clean. Plus, it has whole-machine HEPA filtration to trap allergens and bacteria. What more could you want from a vacuum?
While sometimes awkward to pull around, canister vacuums tend to be better at cleaning hard floors, stairs, and beneath furniture.
People swear by the German engineering behind Miele vacuums, and we have to say the glowing reviews on this canister vacuum are compelling, to say the least. Happy users write that the vacuum is light, versatile, and impressively powerful.
Bissell is crushing it with the affordably-priced, highly-rated vacuums. This canister model is compact, making it easier to tow around the house, and reviewers love the lightweight design. Plus, many say the suction is incredibly strong.
Tired of playing musical outlets as you move from one room to another? Then a cordless vacuum might be just what you need.
This vacuum isn’t cheap, but according to reviewers, it’s definitely worth it. The Dyson V8 Absolute provides all the suction power you’d expect from the brand, but without the cumbersome power cord. It comes with a variety of attachments, and you can also take the neck off to use it as a handheld. Plus, it delivers an impressive 40 minutes of runtime per charge—enough to clean even the biggest houses.
We’ll admit it: It’s annoying to drag out the full-size vacuum for a small-size mess. That’s what makes these top-rated handheld vacuums so great—they’re convenient!
If you fight a never-ending battle against pet hair in your home, you’ll fall for this handheld vacuum from Bissell. The light, compact tool is the Ultimate Hair Clean Up Machine, sucking up impressive amounts of fur from furniture, stairs, and more. And it’s only $30.
The Bissell is the undisputed winner when it comes to pet hair, but if you’re looking for a more versatile hand vacuum, check out this bad boy from Shark. The 4-pound vac comes with several attachments, including a crevice tool, dusting tool, motorized brush and extendable hose, so you can tackle just about any cleaning job with it.
Wouldn’t it be nice if someone came to your house and vacuumed while you were at work? You can have this luxury (without hiring a maid) when you invest in a robotic vacuum, like these popular models.
It’s slim, quiet, and powerful. This robot vacuum from eufy has an impressive 4.5-star rating on Amazon, and it’s a bit more affordable than many bigger “brand-name” models. One reviewer says buying this lil’ robotic cleaning machine was the “best decision we ever made,” as it’s easy to use and does a great job.
This robot is kind of creepily smart—seriously, it can talk to your Amazon Alexa. If you’re looking for a robot vacuum that you can schedule and control from your phone, this iRobot Roomba is one of the best options out there, thanks to its three-stage cleaning system and multi-surface brushes.
