As much as I love to organize and clean, there have always been a few tasks that were on my short list of “would rather not”. Some people hate dusting and laundry; I actually like those tasks. But vacuuming, while not an inherently hard task, has never been my favorite.
To start with, I’m short. Most vacuums I’ve owned have come up well past my waist, which makes them awkward to handle. And then I have to drag the thing around, trying to not knock stuff over, stopping to haul things out of the way so I can get under every surface and behind every nook.
But now – now I seriously love vacuuming. Like, I’ve vacuumed “just for fun” a couple of times, when it didn’t really even need it. And it’s all because of the new Dyson DC59 available at Best Buy.
The Dyson DC59 isn’t like any other vacuum I’ve ever seen. Honestly, it looks a little bit futuristic, like something you might see in a science fiction movie. And it’s purple – a very cool, shiny purple.
Why I Love It
There are so many things I love about the Dyson DC59. First, it’s incredibly light – 4.65 pounds, to be exact. I can zoom all around the house and I barely even notice it’s in my hand. Even better, I can stop and pick up our heavy area rugs to clean underneath, or move chairs or toys that Bubbles has dropped as landmines after my initial sweep. Then I can lift it above my head to clean along the tops of windowsills, curtains, and walls.
The Dyson DC59 provides 3 times the suction of any other cordless vacuum. That comes in quite handy for sucking up all those tiny, dried-up pieces of Play-Doh that inevitably ends up ground into the carpet under Bubbles’ table. There’s a Boost mode to give me extra power for really tough messes, too.
One thing I’ve always kind of hated about canisters on vacuums is emptying them. The contents always seemed to get everywhere and I would feel like I needed to vacuum again just to clean up. But this vacuum has an awesome one-touch empty button that can be used by either left- or right-handed users and I LOVE it.
With the included attachments, you can use the Dyson DC59 in a number of different ways. I love that I can remove the long tube and use the attachments directly with the hand-held portion. It’s great for cleaning the upholstery, cleaning around Bubbles’ car seat, and small spills.
Features of the Dyson DC59
Here are a few additional specs:
- 26 minute clean time
- New V6 motor = 50% more power than V2; performs like an upright
- 2 Tier Radial Cyclone technology brought to cordless for the first time
- Re-engineered brush bar for hard floor and carpet cleaning
- Spins at 110,000rpm (5 times faster than a Formula One racecar engine)
- 4-pole magnet that delivers 50% more power than its predecessor, V2
- 350 Watts
- 3.5 hour charging time (vs. 5 hour in the DC44)
- 15 cyclones, arranged across 2 tiers
- Work in parallel to increase airflow and capture fine dust
- Improved maneuverability due to smaller ball at the back
- Soft-touch trigger is easier to hold
- Pre-motor filter located at the top; now much easier to take out for washing
Pretty awesome, huh? We’ve owned everything from inexpensive vacuums to a fairly high-end model, and this out performs all of them put together. Especially because with the new brush bar I can hit every flooring type in the house without having to stop.
Be sure to look for the Dyson DC59 at Best Buy!
Nice! This would be awesome for doing my stairs!
This would be awesome for dog hair on my wood floors!
I no longer have a versatile vacuum that I can use in tight and awkward places or to clean hard to reach areas. I would love this!
I need a vacuum that is easy to store since we don’t have much room and this seems perfect for that!
The Dyson DC59 looks fantastic. I love its versatility. I’m short too, and this looks much more manageable than anything else I’ve seen.
26 minute clean time sounds amazing to me!
Oh my goodness, I’d absolutely love this. I always wanted to use a Dyson, I think I’d fall in love with it for sure.
I really want a dyson, they seem to really work great! Cordless just sounds amazing
The cordless part truly is awesome, Kelsey. It’s like I can clean the whole house without even stopping!
This looks perfect for anyone, but especially my Gram. She’s been looking for a good new vacuum!!
I really want to try this vacuum. I think it would be perfect on my dog fur covered stairs and help get rid of the muddy paw prints too.
I SO need one of these – with 5 kids all I do is sweep, mop and vacuum!
Oh my goodness, I can only imagine! There’s a lot of cleaning up after just one preschooler!
I would love this for all my shag rugs! And our carpet area.
I am so in love with the Dyson DC59 Vacuum. I am in awe of how great it cleans up the floor and carpets
That Dyson looks amazing! One of these days I am going to invest in a Dyson!
This vacuum looks amazing! I have a few Best Buy gift cards saved up, just a few more and the Dyson will be coming to my home
I’m UBER jealous right now! I seriously want this vacuum so badly! I have pet dander all over the place! And I need an easy to use vacuum like this for the couches and stairs and such.
I just saw that on TV and thought that’s the craziest gadget of a vacuum ever! But I love that dual purpose and easy empty!
That one touch empty feature is the bomb! I have heard that Dysons are great vacuums!
I just saw the commercial for these yesterday, I want one really bad!
I so need one! They look fantastic
Oh my I think I just fell in love with my first ever vacuum. I seriously love how it detaches! I could clean my car from my twins so easy!! And the couch….the floors…the dog hair….LOL =) Marcy
Wow, I love how light it is, I can think of so many places I can use this!
Oh so jealous! As a bride and patiently awaiting fun, new household gifts, a Dyson is on the top of my list! I may have to look into this model now, though! I love your site…good find!
oh, how i want this vacuum! it looks marvelous
This looks like it’s an awesome vacuum. I love that it’s cordless. My 16 mo old twins follow me around the house while I clean and I always worry about them getting tangled in cords!
I have this and LOVE LOVE LOVE it! It makes vacuuming so easy. I just grab it and run through the house. the cordless Dyson is one of my very favorite cleaning tools. Any Dyson I have ever used is amazing and picks up so much yucky stuff.
You had me at cordless.
My Dyson makes me love vacuuming, too. I only have the full sized one, though.
I steal my friends Dyson sometimes! It’s the best!
I love my Oreck vacuum, but this one looks pretty amazing!!
I’d love a light, quiet vacuum like this. My 4 year old son is not a fan of loud noises so I only vacuum when he’s at school or asleep. This sounds like something he could handle me doing while he’s awake.
This looks like it would make vacuuming fun! Thanks for sharing!
With all our pets 4 cats and 3 dogs this looks like it could really keep my floors nice and clean. Great review too.
