When we scoured Amazon for the best-rated vacuum cleaners, the Vax upright Air Stretch Vacuum was one of the most popular. It has 3,494 reviews in total, with 86% of those being five stars. Four-hundred and eleven reviews (over ten percent) said the powerful suction was one of its best features, and due to its heftier size, customers said it stayed upright and rarely toppled over. It’s currently just £100 (down from £260).
The retractable extension cord stretches to 17 metres, and according to the product listing, it was designed to clean an entire home, including stairs, without having to unplug and move it around.
Though it’s listed as lightweight (and 225 of the positive reviews agree), it’s worth noting that it weighs 5kg. If weight is important to you in a vacuum, we also found a well-reviewed cordless Dyson model that weighs 2.3kg, and is also on sale for £199 (down from £370).
If you want a cordless vacuum, we found it hard to look away from the saving on this Dyson model.
