Dyson DC21 Stowaway Canister Vacuum

The Dyson DC21 Stowaway Vacuum Cleaner is the only canister vacuum that does not lose suction. True to its name, its powerful hose and wand wrap around the compact canister for easy storage. Dyson is known for its cutting edge technology and engineering prowess, but this canister vacuum reaches a new level in futuristic design. When the hose is wrapped around the canister, the vacuum looks like it might have come from outer space. The powerful suction is impressive and the wand almost is shaped like a weapon from a video game. The DC21 is great for an apartment and works very well for cleaning hard surfaces.

Unique Dyson Product Features

BAF Approval Lifetime HEPA filter
The Dyson DC21 Stowaway has a HEPA filter which lasts for a lifetime. No expensive filters to replace, just clean air and more clean air! Additionally, this vacuum cleaner is approved for allergy sufferers by the British Allergy Foundation. 
Unique Clear Bin
Unique Clear Bin
The innovative design of the Dyson's clear bin is great because you always know just how well your Dyson is working! One quick glance and you can tell when it's full, and it is easy to empty.  Completely hassle-free, especially since there are no bags to buy, ever.
Dyson Brush High Velocity Air Intake
Intake nozzles on the DC21 tools direct high velocity airflow down into the carpet pile.  This means that you pick up more dust, dirt, and debris. The directional force of the air agitates and dislodges all the nasty stuff hiding in your carpet. And the airflow is continuous, even when vacuuming curtains or upholstery, so they don't get stuck to the cleaner.

as the hose doesn't come directly out the front the vac. tends to pull to its right. the floor attachment doesn't suck on the edges. emptying the cannister creates a dust storm. need i say more?
  Fabulous Vacuum
Reviewed by: Kitty  from Portland Oregon

I've had my stowaway for 3 years now and I adore this vacuum, never a problem and there is virtually NO dust in the air as it is being used. I HAD another fairly expensive brand of vacuum that was a bagless upright with all sorts of attachments and dusters, it clogged ALL the time, and spewed dust out of the outflow and smelled. I got rid of it 3 months after getting this Dyson Stowaway. Never been as happy with a vacuum before. Truly Fabulous. The only slight meh I have is that it's sometimes hard for me to align the motor head back into the dirt canister. But that is just because I tend to be clumsy and a little short on patience.

Dyson DC21 Stowaway Vacuum Cleaner

The Dyson DC21 Stowaway really looks like it comes from another planet. Dyson vacuum's are usually striking in appearance, but this vacuum is over the top. It is a canister so it moves around behind you on big wheels attached to the vacuum body. You can vacuum a room pretty quickly.  Like most canister, this vacuum is excellent for hardwood surface cleaning.

You need a vacuum that lets you clean any space in your home. This canister model in the Dyson™ series allows you to vacuum smoothly around furniture and other obstacles. A motorized brush-roll makes vacuuming even easier. Experience the ease and cleanliness of Dyson's no-bag, no-mess dust bin and enjoy peace of mind knowing you will never lose suction.

What I liked about the Dyson DC21 Stowaway:

The best features of this vacuum are design elements. The DC21 has a big red power button, a retractable cord, a power hose connector, and the way the hose wraps around the canister when stored. This vacuum is powerful and very fun to use. When cleaning upholstery or your car, it is kind of like holding a futuristic vacuuming weapon.

I like that it is a canister vacuum. That means it has a very small profile for storage. It also means that you can maneuver it very easily around your house or apartment. Most people have never used a canister vacuum, but they are very convenient and can be quieter than regular upright vacuums. Also, the HEPA filter located inside the ball means that the air released from the vacuum is cleaner than the air inside your home. It helps with indoor air quality.

What I did not like about the Dyson DC21 Stowaway:

One thing that you could complain about is that the Dyson DC21 needs to be emptied more often than other vacuums. The dirt cup does have a very large capacity. Also, because Dyson is a bagless vacuum, you must be extra careful when emptying the contents so that you just do not release a bunch of dust back into the air or onto the floor. I would almost recommend taking the vacuum outside to release the dust into a garbage receptacle.
