Disclaimer : This awesome invention was given to me to review on this blog. So I did. I reviewed it so hard I did the wrong thing and broke it .. I had to call the Dyson Helpline. I was embarrassed and devastated that I had I broken the latest love of my life. But guess what? .. they were awesome. The lady on the phone trouble shooted the hell out of my problem and sent me a new part to replace my broken part within days. Now to the review …
As I just said, I was given the new Dyson V6 Absolute Handstick Vacuum Cleaner to review and review it I did. No longer was my old pull around 8 year old Dyson required in our little house of many wooden floors, for the new V6 Absolute automatically took its place. Each day it has been a breeze to whizz around the heavy traffic areas of our house doing a quick vac. I have even be able to insert a new task into the chores list for the kids knowing that with the light and easy Dyson they would be able to clean up their own messes much better.
The features of the Dyson V6 Absolute include :
- 20 minutes of fade free suction
- Powered by the Dyson Digital Motor V6
- Direct Drive Cleaner Head
- Whole machine HEPA Filtration
- Max Power Mode (provides 6 minutes of high powered function for more difficult tasks)
- Docking station
- Hygienic bin cleaning
- Mini motorised tool for tough tasks
- Soft roller cleaner head for hard floors
Now, I know you are dying to know how I broke it. And possibly thinking if she can break it then it isn’t worth the cost in buying one. Well .. I did something dumb. In attempting to do a video showing the suction of the vacuum, I threw down a pile of flour onto the floor and went about vacuuming it up. The fine powder got into the motor and stopped it working. The Dyson V6 Absolute isn’t meant to be used on such large amounts of fine powders. DUH!
It is however awesome for vacuuming up other household mess. Like the usual, dust and bits and pieces you find on your floor after a busy day. (but not whole cups full of flour! Sweep that stuff up first then take to the end bits with the Dyson please!)
When I admitted to Mr MMM that I broke my new Dyson, he was extremely sympathetic which is very unusual for him but he knew how much this new household appliance had assisted in our keeping our house looking clean and tidy. Thankfully I was able to get the part I broke replaced.
Which leads me to another point I want to make. The team at Dyson were fantastic when I called for help. They were friendly and well trained in helping stressed out women on the telephone. They clearly appreciate the investment customers make when buying their products and follow up with excellent after sales care.
So that said .. If for some reason my Dyson V6 Absolute disappeared from my life, I would be hot footing it down town to purchase another. Why? Because they make a household task quicker and easier to do and any product that does that and does it as well as the Dyson does .. needs to be in every house. All over the lands.
