The Kenmore Elite Canister Vacuum Cleaner is a small, compact, yet strong vacuum cleaner. Overall, I just like it because it is easy to take out and start to use immediately. Because of it's small and lightweight size, I can quickly access the vacuum cleaner to use it to clean up simple messes instantly. It's such a pain to drag out a heavy vacuum cleaner just to clean up a small mess. It's small but still powerful enough. There are different settings for carpet versus bare floors so it is very versatile as well. As far as I can tell the suction performance is great. It's design is also very nice. Having a canister to hold all the dust is good. It makes the vacuum lighter, although I do have to drag the canister around with me. Nevertheless, it has never been an issue so far. It's design is good and I can maneuver around furniture and other objects around the house. This vacuum cleaner is great for someone who likes to keep the house clean. The only problem I have with this vacuum is the price. It is a bit steep and although I like it, I wish it could have been priced a little lower.
