I am in the market to buy a new vacuum cleaner. Mine broke down awhile ago and right now I have a handme down from my Grandma when she moved to San Diego. It's pretty good but it's old and I go through vacuums like crazy since in my house it gets used 2 or 3 times a day.

So I am thinking that I need to splurge and buy something of higher quality. So I have narrowed it down to three brands.. Kenmore, like the one I used to have til the kids broke it, Dyson, or Miele.

I really loved my Kenmore. I had it for several years without any problems and then one of the kids cut the hose and the warranty had run out. The only thing I didn't like about it was that it took bags.

I have heard great things about Dyson too and that new roller ball thing looks pretty interesting.

Then there are Miele vacuums. They are supposed to be really good at reducing allergens in the home. I have a son who suffers from severe seasonal allergies and this is something that really appeals to me. The only thing I am struggling with is which model I would need.

So does anyone have any input on vacuums? Not just the ones I am talking about here but any others you have knowledge about would be great too. Thanks!!


  1. Hi Blythe!! I Just bought a new Kenmore vacuum a couple months ago and It's working out great for us! My son has severe allergies so I also have to vacuum a lot (we have a dog) and it's taken all the abuse I have given it and looks sparkling new still! Not sure you were looking for a canister or an upright...mine is a canister. the only drawback I found from going to an upright to a canister is having to move the canister around the whole house with you.

    Here's a link to the one I have:

    If you want to know anything else PM me at the "O" :)

  2. Hey Kat! That's actually the exact Kenmore I had before and I did love it except for the dragging it around and the bags LOL. It was a grest vac.
