The Zanussi ZAN3002EL is designed to be an option for people that are looking for a smaller, lighter cylinder vacuum. The lower weight makes it easy to pull around as you clean and this model delivers on the strong suction. While it is a good option for people that want a cylinder model that is effective and affordable, there are probably a few points that will cause some shoppers to think twice.
The cleaning performance on the ZAN3002EL is about what you would expect from your average cylinder vacuum. There certainly are some models that do perform better and offer more versatility, but this one does a pretty good job. Its ability to clean hard floors should leave just about any user feeling satisfied with the results and it can work well for cleaning carpets.
This model from Zanussi comes with all of the basic pieces that you need for cleaning a home. It has a combination floor head for cleaning hard floors and carpets, it has and upholstery tool and it has a combination crevice tool/dusting brush. As an additional point, the ZAN3002EL also has onboard storage for the tools, so everything stays neat when you put it away.
For convenience and ease of use, this vacuum does well. Being a model that is lightweight and compact, it is very easy to handle and most users should be able to carry it around with no problem. The one issue with the size is that being a compact model, it does not have as high of a dirt collection capacity as the full-sized cylinder models. The bags for this model are 2L in capacity, which should be enough to get a good amount of cleaning done, but you are going to find that you need to change the bags more often than most people would like.
It also comes on wheels and it does move behind the user with few problems as they clean. However, the cord is kind of short and that does make for a bit of a small operating radius. With the compact size, the smaller working radius and the low capacity, it seems that this is a model that is designed more for people that live in a smaller home or a flat.
As a further point that might steer some consumers away from this model, it is not particularly efficient. Cylinders do tend to be less efficient than uprights, but this one scores and F for the energy rating with an estimated 52.2 kilowatt hours of electricity consumed per year.
