Advantages: Weight, multi-use, tools, rechargeable
Disadvantages: Slightly pricier than your average vacuum
**What is it?**
The Dyson DC35 is a Dyson 'Digital Slim' vacuum cleaner. It is portable, lightweight, and stores easily, yet with no loss of suction due to the digitally controlled motors.
**What do you get in the box?**
You get the Dyson DC35, the accessories set which comprises of -
Ball floor tool - this has a ball fitting (meaning you can go around furniture easily) and has spinning brushes inside which means it's incredibly effetive not only at getting the general dirt from your carpets but also the ground and trodden in dirt deeper in the pile. It also makes my slate floor shine with cleanliness which I didn't expect!
Long reach wand - a long aluminium pole which can be used to lenthen the reach from the handheld motor section. It's very lightweight and you can reach up to vacuum curtain swags, chandeliers and so on without the need for a footstool.
Combination tool - a combination tool designed for skirting boards, drawers and so on with built in brushes, I must admit I don't use this as much as the other tools are so versatile.
Crevice tool - this is a tool which when attached means you can clean very sharp corners, the backs of radiators, around pipework (I have exposed pipework in the bathroom which can get dusty) and in small spaces. It's very effective, I don't use it every week but more like every fortnight, it gives a really thorough clean.
You also get a warranty card with the Dyson, which you need to fill out and return or do online. I would recommend you do this as they're not cheap!
**Price and Availability**
The Dyson DC35 is freely available both on the high street and on online retailers, it costs anywhere from £190 - £250 with £250 being the average, but I managed to get mine in the sale. You can buy this via Argos, Tesco Direct (and instore), John Lewis, Debenhams and Amazon to name a few.
It's so easy to use, and has so many uses, that it's quickly made itself invaluable in my household.
Firstly the storage. It's so teeny that you can hang it in a shoe cupboard, on the back of a door, or even keep it in a deep drawer. No more hoover hanging around the house!
It's so light that even I don't mind carrying it around the house. Given that it is so adjustable, you can be hoovering the lounge carpet, move seamlessly to the slate floor in the kitchen and then two clicks later be using it as a handheld to do the stairs or even the mattresses.
I find that the deep cleaning of the floor tool gives my carpets a bit of a spruce up in the same way a wet clean would. I love how I can use the handheld feature to hoover up mess from my daughter's dinner, and then empty the lot out with one click, right in the bin.
Dyson's digital motor certainly seems to be powerful, too, I won't go through the specs as you can see them anywhere but from a usage point of view it feels very very powerful without vibrating too much or making too much sound at all - very impressive. My daugther isn't scared of this vacuum either!
I initially bought this to use more as a handheld but the results have been so impressive I've given our Vax away and now exclusively use the Dyson DC35. I have recommended it to countless people and will continue to do so.
I charge my vacuum up for about two hours (I plug it in whilst we have breakfast to make sure it's got enough charge for a good vacuum at around 11am) though it holds charge between uses very well. I do my entire house, it takes maybe an hour or so, and I still get strong vacuum suction to the end. Not having cables around is amazing, too - no more swapping plug sockets, you can just fly around with it! Another great plus point of the rechargable aspect is that I can clean my car out very easily, and I can even use it on the picnic blanket in the garden, too, no more shaking crumbs out over my washing!
I simply cannot praise this vacuum enough - it's an amazing piece of kit and it is worth every penny. I highly recommend it if you're looking towards Dyson as a brand or if you are wanting a quality multifunctional vacuum cleaner. It might cost a touch more than your regular vacuum cleaner but boy does it deliver. I can now clean my house without hassle, have the freedom to clean my car more regularly, it's even been on a day trip to my dad's when he moved house and it came in really handy.
Overall I can't recommend it more than to simply say BUY ONE!!
Summary: Worth it - a great all rounder for everyone, well done Dyson
