Top 10: Best vacuum cleaners 2019

Whether you like an upright, handheld or old-school pull-along, there’s no shortage of choice when it comes to vacuum cleaners. Here is a selection of models at a variety of price points.


Domo 900W - £18.80

The cheapest vacuum home vacuum we could find on account of it currently enjoying an 80% discount, the Domo is resolutely old-school in its approach; it’s small, has two wheels and a retractable cord. It’s also got HEPA-level filtering, which at this price is a bonus.


Black&Decker 2.4V Dustbuster - £19.24

The Dustbuster range is vast, but this 2.4V version is the cheapest handheld version that plugs in at home. You can have more expensive 3.6V and 72.V versions for a little more money, but even this model has respectable power and a decent 370ml capacity.

BLACK+DECKER 2.4 V Lithium-Ion Dustbuster Hand Vacuum, 3.6 W/H


Von Haus Stick 2 in 1 - £27.99

A best-seller on Amazon, the Von Haus Stick arguably undersells itself with the ‘2 in 1’ tag; it can be used as a handheld, with the stick attachment to make it an upright or as a hybrid with the carpet sweeper attachment in handheld mode. Either way it’s very inexpensive at £28, has a two-year warranty and all the extras.

Vax Power Nano Bagless Upright - £59.00

Down from the original price of £80 to a bargain £59.00, this Vax model fits into the traditional upright template with a tall central body housing the motor and dust compartment. Although lightweight you can’t use it handheld, but there’s a flexible hose and attachments so you can get in smaller spaces.


Numatic Henry HVR200-11 - £134.94

No vacuum cleaner list would be complete without a Numatic. Employed in offices and school across the country since the beginning of time, Numatic models are simple but effective, and seemingly bulletproof. Recent upgrades mean lower noise and better efficiency too.

Dyson V6 TRIGGER Handheld - £158.99

A favourite model at Honest John, the V6 TRIGGER is one of the cheapest ways to get into Dyson ownership but doesn’t skimp on features. The V6 motor is still impressively powerful and it can dish out 18 minutes of cleaning on a full charge.

Shark HV390UK DuoClean - £218.30

Another cleaner currently discounted, the Shark is a little unusual in that it is an upright/handheld model but with corded power instead of rechargeable. You can get a similar model from Shark with cordless power, but the 10 metre cord should suit most houses. It’s light enough to use as a proper handheld and comes with a five-year warranty too.

Dyson V8 Absolute Cordless - £362.99

Arguably the daddy of the Dyson range, models like this handheld with extension have taken over from more traditional upright or ‘ball’ vacuums, and it’s not hard to see why. The latest generation Dyson motor means tons of power, and although the collection tank is a modest 540ml it can be emptied hands-free.
