I own this guy, and it’s not an exaggeration to say that it has been life-altering. My kids are amazingly skilled at getting food everywhere but the table at mealtimes, and dragging out the vacuum after breakfast, lunch and dinner was time-consuming and, frankly, annoying. But a quick go with this handheld vac and my floors and seats are clean again in seconds, no plug or heavy sweeping needed.

This vac is powered by lithium ion for a long battery life and strong suction power. Meaning, you can do a lot of suctioning from one charge if you tend to forget to plug it in again after use. It's so lightweight that cleaning high shelves is a cinch.

No need to worry about filter gunk buildup, thanks to the Dustbuster’s cyclonic action. Just suck up what you need to clean, empty the bagless dirt bowl and go about your life.

Another cool feature: A rotating slim nozzle lets you get in just about anywhere without having to do forearm acrobatics.

I’m not the only one obsessed with this Dustbuster: It has a whopping 57,000-plus five-star reviews. One happy customer calls the vac a “little powerhouse,” adding, “it quickly and easily sucks up crumbs, hair, dust, litter and all those other little items that plague our surfaces and makes our space look soooo much nicer.”

This five-star reviewer actually came back to give an update on how much they love this dustbuster 2.5 years later. “I purchased this almost two and a half years ago and STILL have had NO issues. And it is going strong. Battery is still holding a charge,” they wrote.

Another sums it up best: "I have a dog that sheds a lot, and this vacuum is a miracle!"

Want a Dustbuster that’ll solve your dirt problems and last for years? You know what to do.
