It might be surprising that the best-rated overall vacuum cleaner is a goofy Henry the Hoover model. But it carries 3,489 reviews on Amazon, with nearly one in five (or 568) specifically praising the suction. It’s now 25 percent off — £150, down from £200.
Satisfied customers included the owners of a German shepherd who said the vacuum made light work of the dog’s thick hairs and one user who said it even managed to accidentally swallow a pair of socks without her noticing. Though it is noticeably bulkier than the cordless and upright models featured elsewhere, its capabilities on hard floors were commended by 59 reviewers, while 49 users said the light frame made it easy to move around. In total, 82 percent of all reviews are five stars.
