Our ‘Best Buy’ Vacuum Cleaners for 2016

When you purchase a new vacuum cleaner you want to be sure that it’s going to be fit for purpose, won’t break down in a matter of weeks and (ideally) won’t break the bank. Below is a list of the products that we consider to be ‘Best Buys’ for 2016 broken down by category.

Obviously there are various different criteria for judging what constitutes a top rated product and we take into account as many as we can. We try to balance our personal experiences, buyer feedback, cost, longevity, build quality etc to produce a list that is representative.

If you want to go ahead and purchase any of the machines listed you’ll find a comparison pricing chart under each review which will tell you which of the online retailers is offering the cheapest price.

We hope you find our suggestions helpful.
