Vacuuming with Dyson's DC23 Turbinehead. (Review)



Vacuum cleaners and me just don't seem to have a love-love relationship. I'm very picky when it comes to vacuum cleaners- the price has to be just right, the suction has to be powerful, the overall maintenance has to be easy, the equipment has to be light. Needless to say, I HAVE tried several vacuum cleaners and though I've not found my 'perfect match' as yet, I think I've found one that will keep me happy for a good period of time....

Dyson's DC 23 Turbinehead!



DC 23 Turbinehead's technical specifications include :
  • Level 3 Root Cyclone technology
  • 220 AW Suction power
  • Fixed wheel maneuverability
  • Lifetime HEPA and Bactisafe filtration technology
  • 0.44 gallon bin capacity
  • 36.2 feet maximum reach
  • 21.6 feet cord length
  • 19.5 lbs in equipment weight
  • 13.9 x 19.3 x 11.9 " in dimension (HxWxD)
If I had to explain all this in my own words, here's my run down of the DC 23 Turbinehead after over 2 weeks of regular use.

I've always had the problem of little specks of dirt/dust being left behind on our carpet, even after immediate vacuuming



I don't face that problem anymore as the suction power with the DC 23 Turbinehead is very powerful if you switch to using 'carpet mode' (a single knob adjustment will provide rotatory cleaning and stronger suction when used on the carpet.)



The light weight of the vacuum's 'hose' make's cleaning the couch convenient. Once again I have to add that the suction power on this cleaner rocks!



Use of the DC 23 Turbinehead on tiled surfaces is such a breeze. Cleaning is smooth, without a struggle and thanks to the long extension cord, I don't need to disconnect the equipment when I move to each room in our apartment.

I love that I can use the vacuum on Bunny girl's foam alphabet mat to clean up all the little dirt odds and ends that she has dropped. With the other vacuums I've used, I've had to pull the mat apart, dust off each individual square, vacuum the floor and then re-assemble the mat again (A long drawn struggle!), only because the smaller foam parts would threaten to get sucked in or marred with the heat.



The long vacuum 'hose' makes it extremely convenient to clean areas under the couch, bed and table, without shifting those pieces of furniture. I generally get my vacuuming done when Hubby is away at work and Bunny girl is at school. Now that I'm nearing the third trimester, the last thing I'd want to do is push heavy furniture around!



Overall we (Yes Hubby and I have used this equipment several times already.) feel the DC 23 Turbinehead is an awesome cleaning machine mainly because of the strong suction power. The scientific explanation behind this is because it does not employ bagged canisters but instead uses centrifugal force 150,000 times the force of gravity to capture the dust and dirt from the airflow. Thus never losing suction power even after months of use.

I just have to show you (though a little shocked) the amount of dirt that got suctioned up despite having vacuumed the entire apartment, the previous day with our earlier, now retired, vacuum.



If anyone in your family has allergy or asthma concerns, you will be happy to know that the DC 23 Turbinehead expels upto 150 times less mold and bacteria than the air we breathe and has been certified 'asthma and allergy friendly' by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America.

Cleaning the canister is extremely user friendly and not messy. I think that always solves half the problem if your vacuum houses easy to clean dirt bins.

Here are my two little 'bones to pick'....

I personally feel the rolling canister part of the equipment is a little heavy for my likes. Yes it does roll on the wheels but if you need to lift it up to place it in storage or shift it around, it does seem a little bulky. I would've preferred the same to be a few pounds lighter.

I also find that it's a little tedious to maneuver the vacuum brush on the carpet unless you find the right direction (which changes for me each time I vacuum!).



Other than that we're satisfied with the way this 'mean cleaning machine' works. Hubby rates it extremely high and I'm not one to complain as it has excited him to offer cleaning the apartment on more than just an odd occasion or two, while I take a breather!

Dyson certainly comes up with some interesting Designs I'll give them that! My father in law has one and I'm so tempted to sneak it out of his house to give it a test run in my 4 child, fully carpeted with stairs Home.

Dyson would get a Work out and a good True test Run here as well.

wow your dirt canister is FULL I love that its' see through. So many times I have sucked up valuables in my stinky Oreck and can't dig in the yalky brown bag to find them.

I love the DC23. It's stylish and so small. Easy to tuck away in a closet corner.

I love all the pictures you took. We have those exact same letter floor mats for our boy.
