Best Canister Vacuum Cleaners In The Industry

Ready to see my personal list of the best canister vacuum cleaners? If you didn’t read my main post yet, be sure do this first!

Do you want something that is lighter than an upright vac? Something that is more healthy for your ears and pratical? Canister vacuums are the way to go. They are extremely lightweight (compared to upright vacuums), they make less sound and have a great maneuverability. For most people, they just tend to be better for overall use. It doesn’t matter if you have carpets or bare floors, they will work on all kind of space areas just like an upright. Let’s check out my top 5 canister vacuums!

Number 1 – Electrolux UltraFlex Canister Vacuum – Corded

Electrolux UltraFlex Canister Vacuum – Corded

This beautiful candy apple red canister vacuum is amazing. The Electrolux is super easy to assemble, even a toddler could do it. It is extremely lightweight and has great maneuverability. You can compare the suction power it has as what the most upright vacuums have today. I was also amazed at how much dog hair and dirt I picked up with this unit. By far one of the most quiet canisters I used in my life. I literally don’t have anything bad to say about this canister. You can’t go wrong with this one people. This is a high-quality machine, that deserves It’s price tag.


Number 2 – Hoover CH30000 PortaPower Lightweight Commercial

Hoover CH30000 PortaPower Lightweight Commercial Canister Vacuum

You can use the PortaPower for just about anything really ( floors, walls, cars, furniture, … ). It is super small and lightweight. Really easy to store anywhere you want. It has great portability and suction power. It has a really long power cord which can be useful (you don’t have to unplug and plug in multiple times). I also like the hose of this machine because it doesn’t hang on the ground and extends to reach places when its needed. Overall, I am impressed and I think it is a good quality product for the right price tag.


Number 3 – BISSELL Zing Bagged Canister Vacuum, Purple, 4122 Corded

BISSELL Zing Bagged Canister Vacuum, Purple, 4122 – Corded

This little bad boy is really powerful for its cheap price. The suction power it has for being so small is unbelievable… Easy to use machine, that has great maneuverability. The design of this machine is also pretty nice, it just looks good. It has a retractable cord, which is a great feature. Works great on bare floors (wood and tile floors). The only downside is, it doesn’t work that great on carpets. If you don’t have carpets, you can’t go wrong with this BISSELL.


Number 4 – Miele Classic C1 Olympus Canister Vacuum Cleaner Corded

Miele Classic C1 Olympus Canister Vacuum Cleaner (Complete Set) w/ Bonus: Premium Microfiber Cleaner Bundle

The Miele Classic Olympus does everything it says it does. It is extremely lightweight, has great mobility and will follow you behind easily. The sound insulation is great, it is more quiet than the other canister vacuums I tried. It has an extendable hose which is really easy to use (extends and contract simple). If you have allergies, consider this one. It emits almost no dust during use. I also like the vacuum bags of Miele, they are well made and are very good in filtering dust. The material is great. If you have the money to buy something more expensive, consider this one. It is definitely worth it. I can guarantee you will love this machine.


Number 5 – Kenmore Canister Vacuum Cleaner Orange

Kenmore Canister Vacuum Cleaner Orange

Is orange your favorite color? Look no further, you found it! I don’t know why but this color makes myself find vacuuming actually more fun. This is a very versatile vacuum. It has great suction power. Much stronger than I thought. It is Extremely lightweight. Has a very long power cord. It is perfect for hard floors and carpets. I’ve used it on all surfaces with success! Great for picking up the dog hair and dust. Kenmore is not so known between all these big brands out there like Dyson, Miele, … but they shouldn’t do under. They are extremely reliable and gets the job done.


Conlusion & Final Recommendations

The Electrolux is my favourite canister vacuum of all times. Why? It looks good and it does everything I want it to do. I never had any technical problems with it. High-quality machine which is well-worth its price. I know it isn’t cheap but don’t be afraid to spend more money on a good vacuum if you are planning to use it for next couple of years. You can buy it here.

The PortaPower
is great for everything in small houses. I love how it stands out from the others design wise. It has lots of features… Can’t go wrong with the price!

is by far one of the cheapest canisters I used that actually do a solid job for everything. If you are on a budget then you should take this one. I don’t think you will get cheaper for the quality.

The Miele Classic Olympus is one of the best products from Miele I used. I think it stands out because of the details this unit has. The vacuum bags are super. The vacuum emits almost no dust, which means perfect for people with allergies. In my opinion it is a little too expensive but that’s because you are paying for your brand. If you do have the money however, and you are looking for the perfect Miele. This is the one.

The Kenmore Cleaner Orange
What can I say about the orange one from Kenmore? It does the job and It makes the cleaning experience easier and more fun. Great product for the price!

So here we are! At the end of my top 5 canister vacuums. I hope I helped you decide what your next canister will be. If you are coming from an upright. It can be little awkward getting used to pulling a vac behind you without constantly running over the cord. But you will get the hang of quickly.

If you have any more questions or you saw a product online, send me a mail and I will glady assist you further. Have a nice day vacuuming!

  1. Kudos for mentioning the orange Kenny. It is a very good value indeed. It has a lime green near twin. The differences between the two are the way one turns them on and how the cords rewind. The lime green model is turned on and off at the back end of the canister. The switch on the hose only operates the floor brush power. The cord is pull to rewind, just like old Sears Best vacuums from the 1970s. The orange model is a big more upscale. The off on switch on the green machine becomes a cord rewind pedal on the orange model. Press the pedal and the cord retracts. Very nice and newer Kenmore cord winders are quite reliable. On the orange canister you switch the canister on and off at the hose. Just like the more expensive Progressive and Elite, you have a three position slide switch marked off, floor and carpet. Off is obvious, floor turns the canister motor on but doesn’t power up the Powermate floor brush so you can use it to vacuum hard floors. The Carpet setting powers up the Powermate. Both are very good values.

    Btw, if you have the time head down to your local sears and give the Kenmore Elite a try. It is the most powerful canister vacuum sold today and will put the Kirby sales person on the defensive when it pulls the disc on their little BAIRD meter thingy right up to 9 or 10, same as the Kirby he or she is trying to sell you. It’s an impressive vacuum, quiet and powerful. I highly recommend giving it a look.
