You know you’re a mom when you get excited about a vacuum! I’ve always been curious about cord-free vacuums because I’ve heard how they are lightweight and easy to manoeuver. But at the same time, I’ve always worried whether or not the performance would be what I needed to tackle messes in my home.

So I was so thrilled when Dyson approached me to try the machine with the most powerful suction out of any cord-free vacuum – the Dyson Cyclone V10 Absolute. It’s safe to say that the best cord-free vacuum is the powerful Dyson Cyclone V10. Here’s why:

Easy to use

The Dyson Cyclone V10 is so easy to assemble and use. Within a few minutes of assembly (not including the power charge), I was ready to go. The Absolute model comes with both hard floor and carpet attachments, so I tackled the hard floors first.

The machine is so easy to move around because you don’t have to worry about a cord, or trying to find an electrical outlet to plug the vacuum in.


The Dyson Cyclone V10 has a slim design and light handling, so you can easily clean without having to pull a heavy base, or lift up the stairs.


Dyson Cyclone V10 Absolute also comes with a wall mount, so you can easily find a spot to hang up and keep charged for use.  This makes the Dyson Cyclone V10 especially ideal for quick clean-up jobs – such as when the kids have spilled crumbs on the kitchen floor, or drudged in dirt from outside onto the hall carpet.

What’s more, you can remove the long wand and use the small brush attachment to clean under the couches, tackle the stairs, or even bring the machine out to your car (which is ideal when you have kiddies on the go).

The Dyson Cyclone V10 is even effective at cleaning up along edges and on hard floors. It left the kitchen floors and hardwood floors clean and I loved using the machine with the soft roller cleaner head in place of my typical broom and dustpan situation.

On the carpets, the machine even was able to suck up the debris that weren’t visible to the naked eye! It did however push some larger debris, but it was easy to pick up and place back down over the crumb to suck it up.

There are also three power modes to choose from, to suit any task on any floor type.


The Dyson Cyclone V10 has a good-sized dustbin, which means fewer trips to the trash can. It’s also easy to clean; pop off the dustbin, and empty. As a note, the instructions do recommend cleaning the dustbin and filter once a month for maintenance.


The Dyson Cyclone V10 can run on low power for about an hour per charge. At the max power setting,  it runs for about 15 minutes. However I did find that max wasn’t needed – the standard setting worked just fine for daily chores. I was surprised at how often I reached for the machine for the daily chores. And while you think you may need a longer run time, I really only used it for several minutes at a time.
