$699, from Robinsons, Takashimaya D.S., Tangs and major electrical stores Attachments: Floor roller head, brush-cumregular-nozzle-and-crevice-tool Washable parts: Roller brush and lter This is an excellent vacuum that does double duty: As an upright vacuum, it is good for weekly clean-ups around the house. As a handheld vacuum, it is handy for picking up crumbs or cleaning small areas.
As an upright vacuum, it glided over ceramic, terrazzo and parquet floors smoothly and effortlessly. It was also easy to swivel and manoeuvre. For use as a handheld vacuum, just detach the long tube. For tabletops and tighter spaces, it’s best to switch to the regular nozzle or crevice tool. The combination of large and small nozzles gives you the best of both worlds. VERDICT A worthwhile investment, covering all your vacuuming needs.
