Does a great job on laminate floors--great on cat litter.

By 

from USA

Comments about Dirt Devil EZ Lite Canister Vacuum:

This was first Dirt Devil I've had. It beats a bunch of previous uprights all hollow! Wonderful suction, even on clumping cat litter that the cats have scattered, which none of the uprights I've used (Bissel, Kirby, Hoover, Singer) have been able to do successfully. Plus is the canister is easy to dump out, cord retracts nicely, the thing is light, maneuvering easily. ONLY downside it that it isn't so great on carpet, but my house has 1 area rug and 1 carpeted room. So I'm very happy with this vac.

Maneuverability
It's not heavy, so can easily be picked up, moves well on laminate floors, not so great on deep pile carpet but handled the area rug reasonably well.

Ease of Maintenance
Haven't had to deal with the filter, but I like that it is washable and therefore I won't have to purchase filters constantly. Canister is of course small, but even with the whole house vacuumed, it wasn't full. Easy to empty, too.

Suction Performance
I didn't expect anything because my current upright (Bissel) is rotten about suction,, but this Devil was surprisingly powerful. I was very pleasantly delighted to see clumps of hair, cat litter, even stems of hay, went right up without me having to "feed" the thing by hand.

Versatility
Again, this machine is not so hot on deep pile carpet, but on laminate it can't be beat, it's easy to remove the floor head so you can reach crevices or tiny spaces.

Design
The only thing I'd change about this machine (other than better carpet performance) is to lengthen the cord some, but that's certainly not an annoyance, more of a wish.

Durability
It's brand new, ask me in a year or two!

Finally a vacuum that works for my needs!

By 

from Belleair Beach, FL

Comments about Dirt Devil EZ Lite Canister Vacuum:

I hate vacuuming!! One kid, one dog and one messy husband and I feel that a vacuum everyday.... or almost. My house has tile and hardwood floors, I live one lock from the beach so sand is an every day issue. Every vacuum I had before did nothing but spread the mess around. My little Dirt Devil picks up everything on my bare floors. Bye bye hairs, dirty, grass from my daughter's cleats and sand from the beach. I love the retractable cord, the easy to empty canister and the little brush to help with keeping the couch clean. One I find my floor is cleaner than It has been in months. This is a big time winner for me. I am in love with my new vacuum.

Durability
So far so good!

Check for clogs in the hose before giving up.

By 

from USA

Comments about Dirt Devil EZ Lite Canister Vacuum:

Turns out, the clog was in the hose, deep down. It took a clothes hangar and some patience, but I finally got it. Seems that plastic curved part is a dust and hair clog magnet. Still have to clean the inside each time, but at least it works well once I do.

Decent vacuum for the price

By 

from Port Huron, MI

Comments about Dirt Devil EZ Lite Canister Vacuum:

Good overall vaccum, doesnt suction as well as i would have hoped but over all gets the job done

Maneuverability
Very easy to maneuver around

Suction Performance
This doesnt suck as well as i would like. The long hose makes it easy for things to get trapped as well.

Design
good design

not as pleased with D. D. Easy Lite

By 

from Genoa, OH

Comments about Dirt Devil EZ Lite Canister Vacuum:

I bought a dirt devil easy lite based on the reviews that I read. The first few days it seemed to work as everyone had suggested, but by the 4th or 5th use I was'nt so convinced. For me the pick up power isn't the greatest. I empty the canister after every use and clean the filters every other use. I have problems with it clogging on occasion too. I bought this to get away from the price of bags I was spending on my old vacuum, now I'm back to using my old vacuum again. If I could, I would take it back and put the money into something more powerful. The D. D. easy lite would be okay for light cleaning but not big jobs like mine (cleaning up after kids, and pet hair). It was the wrong choice for me. However, I will say this...it is light weight,not too loud and is easy to empty.

Good for hardwood, not carpet

By 

from Michigan City, IN

Comments about Dirt Devil EZ Lite Canister Vacuum:

I bought this vaccum about 2 years ago and it is still going stong. I've been through a number of vaccumes over the years and this one seems to hold up well to dirt and pet hair. Most vaccumes will clog with the pet hair but this one is easy to clean out which doesn't cause the motor to get clogged. It comes with a variety of parts that are not able to be attached to the machine itself so I would suggest to keep them in a drawer so they do not get lost. My home has hardwood floors and some carpet. It works very well on hardwood floors but not on carpet. Now on my floors I just have those indoor/outdoor carpet (very thin) and it does not pick up dirt well at all even with the carpet cleaner piece. The only other negative I can say is that the cord is too short. I do like this vaccum and would recommend it to anyone with hardwood floors or tile.

Dirt Devil Canister Vacuum is easy to use.

By 

from Melbourne, FL

Comments about Dirt Devil EZ Lite Canister Vacuum:

The dirt devil canister vacuum makes it easy to keep my wood floors clean and can readily slip on and off the attachments for deeper cleaning.  I can quickly vacuum the floors then easily attach the tools to clean ceiling fans, the couch and chairs, window sills and baseboards.  It lays flat to go under tables and couches without having to move the furniture to vacuum.  The canister is easy to empty and clean.  I can completely wash the canister after vacuuming and remove all dust particles. I let it air dry then shake out the filter.  I feel the next time i go to use the vacuum it's starting off clean and doesn't have residue from earlier cleanings.

The filters are hard to clean and have to be ordered on line because not all stores carry replacement filters.  The filter is not washable which would make it convenient if it was.  It also seems to be backwards way to carry it.  it would be more comfortable it you could carry it the other way.  It does not store easily or conveniently.  It's awkward to store and take up more space than necessary.

Dirt Devil EZ Lite is great to use!

By 

from Woodside, NY

Comments about Dirt Devil EZ Lite Canister Vacuum:

I have enough of standing vacuums bacause they are way too big and heavy. The Dirt Devil EZ Lite Canister Vacuum is MUCH lighter and easy to lug around the house.

But what I really like about this Dirt Devil machine is that it really cleans! It's more powerful that the Bissel one we had. And MUCH quieter too. And the cup is also easier to clean and less mess on the outside. The Bissell one we had always had lots of dust on the outside of the cup. And we need to clean in the inside etc. This one is all contained in the cup.

I like the attachments too. They help a lot in the cleaning.

I like it that I can change the power setting to lower the noise level.

It's small and compact.

However, I have a BIG problem with it. I don't know how to store it! It doesn't stand and when it's lying down, I don't know where to put the attached stick and hose so that it'll not fall. There really should be a better design for that.

All in all, we're very satisfied
