Great product!

By

Comments about Electrolux UniRapido Stick Vacuum:

I am so glad that I purchased this vacuum. I have a great deal of tile floor in my house & use cordless vacuums to keep it clean. I have gone through 2 different products before I found this one. It has great suction and I'm able to vacuum my entire floor without it losing power which is something that I have not been able to do with other vacuums. It works great on my tile as well as my area rugs. The small, swivel head makes it very easy to get around furniture, under counters and in small spaces which is very benefical. The extra large dust cup is great. Being able to get the entire floor done without having to clean it out 2 or 3 times is wonderful.

Awesome product for the price

Comments about Electrolux UniRapido Stick Vacuum:

This vacuum is great because it cleans as good if not better than the larger one. I purchased it because of its size and the fact that it breaks down easily. It has great suction ability and pick up ability. It has to be charged prior to use and every so often about every few days.

Easy to use and has great suction!

By 

from Polk City, FL

Comments about Electrolux UniRapido Stick Vacuum:

I love this little stick vac. It is lightweight, cordless and gets the job done. The charge only lasts about 20 minutes. That being said, on hard floors it is a whiz at picking up all debris, including hair. It is light enough that even small children can use it. I am in love with this vac.

Thought it was good......until battery went bad!

By 

from Lipan, TX

Comments about Electrolux UniRapido Stick Vacuum:

I bought it about a year ago. I thought it would be perfect since our hardwoods get so dusty.I loved it at first. It worked great, and was very powerful. It was Also very quiet. It was very convenient to just grab, and do a quick run over the floor. Having no cords was a big perk. But about 6 months into it, I noticed it didnt have the same power it had at first, and it wasn't picking up the debris as good as before. On hi, it ran like it was on the low setting. Then one day it actually died while I was using it. It only takes about 15-20 min to go over the floors, and it was now dying on me. Now it lasts about 10 min, and has no power. It worthless, i can even finish the living room. It picks up about half of what it used to. And is a waist of time to even mess with. The broom is faster. Very dissapointed it only lasted a year for what it cost.

Maneuverability
Easy to use, lightweight, and no cords

Ease of Maintenance
Easy to clean, just dump it and go.

Suction Performance
Good at first, but lost its power, picks up very little.

Versatility
Easy to grab and go. No cords! Worked good on hardwoods, and our berber rugs. Handheld feature was nice for a quick run over furniture. Slsp maneuvered around furniture, and baseboards very well

Design
Nice size, sleek look. Charger dock is small, doent clutter up the space

Durability
Battery went bad. 8 months and its garbage. Battery creates a memory, and goes bad. Doesn't have any power, or suction now. Only used it about once or twice a week for light dust pick up, and now it doesn't work longer than about 10 minutes and dies. On the hi setting, It works on less power than its prior low setting, and picks up nothing. Canister, buttons, etc...all held up though. No problems there.

Great for the little spills to keep clean all day

By 

from USA

Comments about Electrolux UniRapido Stick Vacuum:

I. LOVE. THIS. VACUUM! I use it to clean up little spills from my toddler so the house is clean all day, until I have an opportunity to deep clean. Although it's not intended for carpeting (I don't believe), I have used it on the rugs at door entries to clean up after the dogs as well. My friends all want one as soon as they see me use it. I haven't once lost suction or power. This is a GREAT product!

Not really worth the money.

By 

from Phoenix, AZ

Comments about Electrolux UniRapido Stick Vacuum:

My husband and I bought the Electrolux EL852A Bagless Stick Vacuum for use on our hardwood and tile floors. We used it for a few weeks. Not really on any huge messes, just on the normal crumbs in the kitchen and dining room, and lint in the hallway. The Electrolux really is hit or miss. Sometimes it would pick up everything, other times it would not pick up things, and other times it would suck up things, and then spit them out a few seconds later. Not really what I had in mind...

It is also a complete pain in the rear to empty the canister. My husband took it outside for this task, and struggled with it for a few minutes, and ended up getting the dust everywhere but the trash bin.

Thankfully, we bought it from Costco. They have an excellent, no-questions-asked return policy. Needless to say, we returned the Electrolux. I still do not have a replacement, so I can't recommend anything better at this point. We've gone back to using the Swiffer. I hate the Swiffer, but at least it's consistent.

UniRapido Review

By 

from San Francisco, CA

Comments about Electrolux UniRapido Stick Vacuum:

I had gotten this in a sale, and in the beggining I thought it was a hardwood only vacuum and I was sorely dissappointed. I needed something that was for carpet since most of my place is carpet. But when I opened the box and started to read the manual, it said that it was for both hardwood floor and carpets, then I was feeling really relieved. Then I quickly popped it into the charging stand and patiently waited for the twenty four hour charge to pass by. Then when it was finally done, I quickly took it out for a spin, and boy did this sucker suck! haha It worked really well and picked every piece of pet hair or human hair and every little dust particle. Cleaning up is like a breeze, but still either way it is a pain in the butt to clean it. The dust part is realitively easy by just popping the canister out and wiping it down. But everytime I have to clean the brushes due to so much hair on the floor which is a pain.
