If you’d have asked us what luxury item we most wanted when we were 21, we’d have told you a car, a holiday or perhaps some designer clothing we’d been lusting after.
Ask us now and we’ll tell you that we just want a vacuum cleaner that actually does what it’s supposed to do and doesn’t give us repetitive strain injury running it back and forth over the same spot.
Oh, and we also don’t want to break the bank buying one.
Enter the Dyson V8 Absolute Extra Vacuum Cleaner, this top-rated product has received more than 2,000 reviews on the John Lewis site and - best of all - it is currently 25% off at Currys PC World and John Lewis.
It has already proved a popular Black Friday pick as it has sold out at John Lewis twice already this week, but keep your eyes peeled as it may come back in stock. It is, however still in stock at Currys PC World.
Why we love it:
Well, for starters the top-rated vacuum cleaner, which one happy customer called a “life changer” has a whopping £100 off its price, taking it down from a rather expensive £399, to a much more reasonable £299.
As for the product itself, with up to 40 minutes of powerful fade-free suction, the Dyson V8 Absolute Extra features Direct Drive technology, which promises deep cleans on carpets and hard floors.
Plus, it has an extra soft roller cleaner head, which picks up large debris and fine dust all at once - perfect if you’ve kids, pets or just an obsession with perfectly-polished floors.
How it works:
The new “reach under” tool allows for easy cleaning under furniture and the vacuum changes to a handheld in one click. Plus, it comes with four cleaning tools for the stairs, upholstery and car.
It features “2 Tier Radial cyclones”, which means there’s no loss of suction and it has certified asthma and allergy friendly advanced whole-machine filtration.
What the reviews say:
“This has been a life changer for doing the odd little bit of vacuuming. So quick and easy. Very efficient and effective.”
“Over many years this is my fourth Dyson, two corded and two cordless - this is the best so far! It is light, powerful and easy to manoeuvre, better still, the attachments are included. Purchased from John Lewis the price is competitive and the online order process is very straightforward.”
“Great vacuum, so easy to use and store. The different roller heads are perfect for use between our wood and carpeted flooring.”
“Not being the most enthusiastic domestic engineer this purchase is a must-have. Takes all the pain of cabled heavy vacuuming out of your life. Easy to assemble and charge but even easier to use. It makes the house cleaning a pleasure.”
“Wonderful machine. I love everything about it. Never realised what a difference it makes a) having a cordless b) the weight - it's so light but very powerful. c) how did we manage without it! John Lewis delivery within 18 hours of ordering together with excellent service was first class as always.”
This product is what I should have bought years ago. I am absolutely delighted with it. So easy to use, very light and versatile. Don't know how I managed without one.”
“We bought it a month ago, after a few months of searching and reading the reviews we decided to go for it. The best decision ever. It's the best vacuum I've ever had, so easy to use, it's light, very powerful, just perfect. 30min running it's more that enough for three big bed house. Go for it!”
