Save £130 off highly recommended Dyson V12 cordless vacuum: 'I wish I'd bought one years ago'

There's currently £130 off the Dyson Detect Slim Absolute Lightweight Vacuum Cleaner. (Dyson)

Cordless vacuum cleaners are a game-changing invention, and Dyson is one of the best brands to shop from.

With no cables to get tangled up and complete freedom to hoover every nook and cranny in your home, they're a worthwhile investment to keep your space looking and feeling clean.

However, Dyson of course doesn't come cheap, so when we spotted a huge reduction off one of its most popular cordless models, we couldn't wait to share.

At John Lewis the Dyson V12 Detect Slim Absolute Lightweight Vacuum Cleaner is currently on sale with £130 off, reduced from £529.99 to £399.99.

This slick home appliance also, unsurprisingly, has rave reviews from customers too. A deal too good to miss, if you've had your eye on it for a while, now's the perfect time to add it to your cart.

Why we rate it

This powerful and lightweight vacuum cleaner weighs just 2.2kg, making it easy to manoeuvre around and suction up pet hair and dirt – it can even capture microscopic dust particles.

It's most impressive feature is its precisely-angled laser on the cleaner head, which makes dust and dirt you may have missed visible, so you can really get a deep clean of hardwood and carpeted floors.

There's a built in sensor too that counts dust particles it picks up, which will automatically adjust its suction power when it detects bigger particles.

The built-in laser on the cleaning head will illuminate dust particles you may have missed. (Dyson)

Thanks to its LCD screen, it will display a real-time report of how much dirt you've cleaned up, and its stiff nylon bristles and soft nylon and anti-static carbon fibre filaments can remove dust from even the smallest of corners.

With a run-time of up to an hour, you'll have plenty of time to clean your whole house before popping it on charge, ready for your next session.

It also comes with four cleaning tools to optimise cleaning. There’s a hair screw tool that picks up long hair and pet hair effectively. A Combination and Crevice tool to clean surfaces, edges and those narrow hard to reach places. Finally, a reach under tool, which is engineered to clean under low furniture.

When you've finished using it, make sure you take advantage of the wall-mounted docking station that comes with it so you avoid cluttering up spaces.

What the reviews say

There are over 100 five-star ratings on this Dyson model on the John Lewis website, with glowing reviews such as this:

  • "VERY pleased with this cleaner – easy to use, very lightweight and very handy to use on the stairs, very easy to recharge. Good all rounder."

  • "Yes. It's expensive compared to other brands but worth it and I only wish I had bought one years ago. It's so easy to handle and it's obvious that the attention to detail has paid off. I definitely recommend this machine."

  • "Light, easy to use and to be honest, I thought the laser on the hard floor head was just a gimmick. Turns out it's a fabulous feature – I hadn't realised how dusty my house was! Among the other tools, I also like the low-reach adapter, making it easier to reach under furniture. I'm really happy with my purchase!"

  • "The suction is very strong, it is so easy to empty and clean, the fittings are all very good."

  • "I call this the 'beast' [sic] superb power with ease of use and no chord! Never enjoyed vacuuming so much before!"

  • "Beautiful design. I found this vacuum so much easier to use because it's small and light. Emptying the small dust container into a bag is very easy, then I put the bag in the rubbish bin."
