The Dyson V11 Absolute sets new cleaning standards for the cordless market, it’s the best we’ve ever tested.

Pros
  • It’s the best cordless vacuum cleaner you can buy. It’s brilliant at cleaning on all floor surfaces and easy to use.
Cons
  • Have to hold down power trigger continuously

verdict: The best cordless vacuum around

Like the Dyson V11 Absolute, the V11 Torque Drive sets new cleaning standards for the cordless market as the best we’ve ever tested. The only difference between the two models is that the Absolute comes with an extra soft roller head attachment for hard floors, but the Torque Drive is hardly at a disadvantage without it. It’s great at cleaning on all floor surfaces, it has excellent filters and a few features, such as the LCD display and longer battery life, which make it a bit more appealing than either the V10 or V8.

Pros
  • It’s the best cordless vacuum cleaner you can buy. It’s brilliant at cleaning on all floor surfaces and easy to use.
Cons

 verdict: Futuristic and fantastic

Dyson has done it again: the V15 Detect Absolute is pricey, but it leaves the competition in the dust.

  • Excellent at tackling pet hair
  • Innovative features
  • Cleans well on minimum power
  • Good allergen retention
  • Long runtime
  • Easy to use

verdict: Brilliant for bigger homes

With a two-litre dust container and almost an hour and a half of cleaning time, the Dyson Outsize Absolute is purpose-built for larger homes. It’s packed with innovative features and does a forensic job on all surfaces, setting it apart from supersized rivals. However, it’s hard work to clean with and can feel out of proportion, so unless your home demands a bigger vacuum, you’re probably better off with a smaller model.

Pros
  • Terrific cleaning on all surfaces
  • Huge dust capacity
  • Very long run-time
  • Works well on minimum power and when the dust container is full
  • Superb at sucking up pet hair and larger debris
  • Excellent allergen retention
  • Innovative features
  • Straightforward to use
  • Quiet
Cons
  • Can feel cumbersome and out of proportion
  • Have to hold down the power trigger continuously
  • Floorhead is too wide for steps
  • No laser on the carpet floorhead

Not only is this one of the best cordless vacuums we’ve ever tested, but the added mop function, which works very well, also makes it extra appealing.

This Tineco is one of the best cordless vacuum cleaners we’ve tested and a worthy Best Buy. It’s packed full of useful features and it cleans well on any floor surface. It’s not cheap, but it’s much less expensive than the Dyson V11, so it could be an alternative worth looking at.

The Dyson V11 Animal is an excellent cordless vacuum cleaner. It’s good at cleaning carpets and hard floors, and great at sucking up pet hair. It also has some nice new features that might make it a more attractive choice than the V10. In terms of cleaning, it’s not as good as the V11 Absolute or the V11 Torque Drive, but it’s also £100 cheaper.
