Dyson is well known for being the market leader when it comes to vacuums thanks to their well-designed and powerful machines.
I’ve gone through several vacuums in the last few years and they always seem to give out within 12 months. I’ve had a few that didn’t last past a month of normal use. It’s a game that can get expensive pretty quickly and make you wonder how it is your mother made that old vacuum of hers last 30 years but you can’t seem to get past 30 days.
That all changed when I started to use the Dyson Cinetic DC77. It’s a low maintenance rock-star of a vacuum. Here we are months into use now and it still performs like day 1. I actually have hope that I might just hit that 30 year mark with it.
The thing about the Dyson Cinetic DC77 though is that it is at a price point that many Canadians just are not comfortable with.
Well some good news for those of you who are craving a Dyson in your life but just can’t swallow the cost!
Introducing the Dyson DC33 Multi Floor Upright Vacuum, newly exclusive to Canadian Tire! This is a great machine for you if you’ve always wanted a Dyson but have found the cost prohibitive as it is priced at only $399.88.
It features the same great technology that Dyson is famous for including Root Cyclone ™ technology that capture more microscopic dust than any other cyclone and a HEPA filter that traps microscopic pollen and allergens, which makes it ideal for allergy sufferers.
I was interested to see how the Dyson DC33 Multi Floor Upright Vacuum stacked up and put it to work right away. I tested it out on my wool area rug first. I hadn’t vacuumed for a few days while I was waiting for it to arrive so there were visible bits on the carpet.
I found that the Dyson DC33 Multi Floor handled the mess pretty effortlessly, the pick-up power is great! I feel like there is a definite power difference between it and my Dyson Cinetic DC77, which isn’t much of a surprise at such different price points. The end result is still pretty comparable with just a little bit more effort on the part of the Dyson DC33 Multi Floor.
Going from my area rug to my hardwood floor is a simple adjustment and I have to say that I love how this machine handles hard floor vacuuming. It also handles my rec room carpet well which has a higher pile than the area rug in my sitting room. This is thanks to the self-adjusting cleaner head which maintains contact with your floor to seal in the suction. I’ve had vacuums where you have to make the adjustment and I always found that it was really inefficient so I appreciate how well this action works.
The one issue I have with this vacuum is the size of the cleaner head. It does manoeuvre nicely enough around my furniture but I find it difficult to vacuum under my coffee table in a way that is not an issue with the DC77.
That said, the DC33 does come with three added tools to help you get the most out of the machine including a combo accessory tool which features a nozzle for large debris that converts to a brush tool for dusting, a stair tool that attaches to the removable wand or hose, and a flexi crevice tool which helps you get in between your furniture for a more thorough clean.
When it comes time to emptying the bin it doesn’t get any easier or cleaner – simply hold the bin over a garbage bag and press the button to release the dirt. The bin then easily pops back into the vacuum.
I also really appreciate that the Dyson DC33 Multi Floor features two washable filters. Since there are also no bags to replace there really are no extra costs with this machine.
The Dyson DC33 Multi Floor also features a five year parts and labour warranty redeemable at Canadian Tire. I always feel better knowing there is a long warranty period, don’t you?
Overall I am quite happy with the performance of the Dyson DC33 Multi Floor and would definitely recommend it to those who are hesitant to invest in one of the other models.
