In quarantine there’s no shortage of things for me to clean so I’m down for all the help I can get. Whether it’s additional tools or more hands on deck, I’m exploring all possible ways to keep my home clean and the Dyson V11 has proved useful on both fronts. 

What’s in the box? 

The Dyson V11 Absolute comes as a kit with an extensive range of attachments in the box. It’s an all-in-one purchase, which makes all of its features accessible immediately and justifies the hefty price tag. All of the following is included: nickel torque drive, soft roller cleaner head, crevice tool, mini motorized tool, combination tool, mini soft dusting brush, docking station and charger.

The V11 has a modular design whereby all of the pieces fit together easily with a slide and click. This makes assembly and switching out parts a snap. It’s not cumbersome at all to switch from vacuuming the rug to whisking the sofa. 

The clear canister makes it easy to determine when the vacuum needs to be emptied and its point and shoot mechanism makes dumping dust and debris error free; there’s nothing worse than emptying remnants of a full vacuum back onto the floor! Speaking of point and shoot, when you add in the one-handed battery saving power trigger, you can’t help but feel like the queen of Call of Duty while using it – my boys felt it too. For the first time in their lives, my boys wanted to vacuum.

I also appreciate that Dyson’s design ethos extends beyond the product itself to how it’s stored. The mountable docking station makes storing and charging the vacuum easy as it takes up less space in my already cluttered storage room.

With so many attachments and configurations the Dyson V11 cleans everything! I attached the nickel torque drive to vacuum the rugs and tile flooring. I used the soft roller cleaner head to vacuum the car rugs and upholstery and I attached the crevice tool to remove debris from baseboards and couch cushions. V11 cleans the house and the car. Now that’s what I call a win-win.

Fundamentally, it does what every vacuum is supposed to, which is clean but the Dyson V11 is no ordinary vacuum. Thanks to its V11 digital motor and cyclone technology, the vacuum sucked up every bit of dirt and debris leaving the floors spotless. This powerful suction is achieved by yet another design element whereby the motor, bin and cyclone are aligned so that air is drawn into the cyclones in a straight line. 

Perhaps the most impressive element of the Dyson V11 is the perfectly placed LCD screen, which displays performance reports in real time and allows you to choose between three cleaning modes depending on the task at hand. 

The verdict 

The Dyson V11 is the perfect household tool. It blends exceptional design with state-of-the-art technology to facilitate basic household chores. It never ceases to amaze me how much having the right tools can positively affect your job, so I say to all the hard working mamas out there, this vacuum is well worth the investment.
