Dirt Devil Featherlite Cyclonic Bagless Canister Vacuum Review

Ever since the very first Dirt Devil first exploded onto the marketplace just a handful of decades ago, they have been incredibly popular – and some of the best performing vacuums available for sale.

However, rather than sit back on their laurels and enjoy their success from the sidelines, the people behind the Dirt Devil have worked double overtime to try and engineer and innovate new breakthrough solutions that make it easier (and more effortless) for you to get the kind of deep clean results you’re after.

Well, they haven’t created the perfect vacuum cleaner yet (but who has) – though they have come close with the Dirt Devil Featherlite Cyclonic Bagless canister vacuum.

Positive Features

At first blush, you’re going to be incredibly impressed by the overall design aesthetic and engineering behind this (almost) brand-new Dirt Devil.

Engineered from the ground up to provide busy people with the kind of quick and convenient vacuum cleaner they need to get the job done in a pinch, this smaller sized vacuum cleaner weighs less than 10 pounds but offers a single stage cyclonic vacuum system that will suck up just about anything and everything.

On top of that, it can easily go from cleaning solid surfaced floors (like hardwoods or tile, for example) to deep cleaning carpets and rugs – some of the more difficult surfaces to clean – with absolutely no break in between whatsoever.

Though there are a handful of other vacuum cleaners out there that promise the same results (even full-size options), few of them are able to do so as effortlessly or as consistently as this one.

Finally, when you add in the fact that this vacuum cleaner also includes a “combination crevice tool and dusting brush” built to reach those almost impossible to get to spaces – solely for your convenience and your convenience only – you’ll really start to appreciate just how serious Dirt Devil was about building the perfect canister vacuum.

Negative Features

There aren’t all that many negatives when it comes to the Dirt Devil Featherlite Cyclonic Bagless canister vacuum.

Sure, there are a couple of almost nonissues that you’ll want to at least be aware of. We are talking about things like:

  • A vacuum hose that could have been a bit longer
  • Cheaper construction materials used in specific areas
  • The fact that it is a little bit on the more difficult side to store because of its unique footprint

Aside from all that though, there’s really nothing to shake your head at when you come away from using this canister vacuum.

It’s just that good.

Here’s What People are Saying About This Vacuum

According to customers that have already purchased this vacuum, the overwhelming majority of them are pleased with the:

  • Lightweight form factor of the unit
  • Easily retractable cord
  • Great suction and vacuuming capabilities
  • Drop dead simple maintenance

And that’s just the tip of the iceberg!

It compares favorably to Dyson vacuums, Eureka vacuums, and Bissell vacuum options – and maybe better than all three of them while still packing a pretty budget based price tag.

Final Verdict

Though there are a number of different options out there when it comes to canister vacuum cleaners, only a handful of solutions are “top-of-the-line” products that you can feel comfortable investing in for the long haul.

The Dirt Devil Featherlite Cyclonic Bagless canister vacuum definitely belongs in that conversation. Inexpensive, built well, leverages a single stage cyclonic vacuum system, and is drop dead simple to maintain and empty out after use, you’re looking at a real winner here.

By all means investigate your other options, but don’t be surprised if this is the vacuum cleaner that you decide to go with.
