SEBO K3 Canister Vacuum
A mainstay in the SEBO line of high quality vacuum cleaners, the
K3 series of vacuums offers a range of colors and options to meet all of your home cleaning needs. In addition to cleaning your surfaces, the
SEBO K3 vacuums also come standard with sealed systems and S-Class filtration. What this means that allergens are filtered and trapped
instead of being redistributed in the air you breathe. Let's take a closer look at this durable and effective home cleaner to see how it compares to
What I liked about the SEBO K3 Canister Vacuum
The SEBO K3 Canister vacuum arrives with an electric, telescopic wand, parquet floor tool, a power head
attachment, and three mini accessories for above the floor cleaning. Unlike some models, the powerhead of the K3 is height adjustable with four separate settings, suitable
for any height of carpet. Independently driven, this powerful carpet cleaning works well on any type of carpet and removes pet hair as well as the
best of them. The design is slightly different than traditional powerheads, but this unique "L" shape works well, particularly around table and chair legs. This tool even provides indicator
lights to help guide your cleaning and let you know when you might need to replace the brushroll. The on-board cleaning accessories are ideal for dusting, while the ultra slim profile of the wand, handle and cleaning head
allow you to dust or vacuum even the tightest of spaces. Lastly, the parquet tool, though simple, is actually extremely effective. The bristles are gentle enough for use on
more delicate surfaces, and the slim profile is perfect for getting under appliances. This smooth floor tool is actually better than many comparable models. The notches cut
into the bristles are smaller than similar tools for other brands of vacuums, and it's these smaller notches that allow for greater suction and better cleaning with a single pass.
The K3 is a better choice than the K2 if you have carpets in
your home. The electrically driven powerhead is better across all types of carpet while still providing you all the tools you need for
cleaning smooth surfaces. If you have low pile carpet or only small areas of carpet, the K2 Turbo might be a decent fit, since it comes with an air-driven
turbobrush, but the best carpet cleaning, the K3 is a clear choice.
Unlike other vacuums, the K3 offers you three choices in terms of color options, red, black and white. The red and black models are the same other than the color, but the white
offers a couple extra accessories. The K3 Pet vacuum cleaner (white) comes with all the standard features of the other K3 models but also includes a handheld
turbobrush and a wand extension. For pet owners, the handheld turbobrush is going to be a great add-on. It's small but powerful and well suited for removing
pet hair from upholstered furniture and steps, two places where using a traditional floor cleaning tool isn't an option.
The K3 vacuum cleaner also offers suction control
on the ergonomically designed handle. The suction adjustment slide is easy to use and allows you to quickly reduce or increase suction on the fly.
It also saves you from having to bend over each time you transition to or from different types of flooring.
Filtration on this model has long been a key selling point. SEBO vacuums, including the K3 canister vacuums, come standard with S-Class filtration and a sealed system. These German
designed and manufactured vacuums place great emphasis on providing a machine that cleans your floors and does so without polluting indoor air. The dust bag is easy to change, and has
a built in cap to seal away allergens while you are replacing it. Overall, this system is a good fit for those dealing with allergies or asthma or really anyone concerned with problem of
traditional or cheap vacuums that simply suck up allergens and force them back into the air you breathe.
SEBO vacuums are exceptionally durable. They are built to last, and the warranty backs that up, providing a full five years of coverage for the motor, all non-wear parts
as well as labor. And while SEBO has enjoyed a long reputation as a quality commercial grade vacuum cleaner, the K3 canister combines power and efficiency with
convenient features more suitable for everyday use.
What I did not like about the SEBO K3 Canister Vacuum
My old gripe with the K3 used to be their powerheads. In the past, the
had several powerheads for different colors and it was simply confusing to figure out. More recently, they have simplified the offering and eliminated this problem. So my
only remaining point is with filtration. In all reality, S-Class filtration will offer almost no distinguishable difference when compared to HEPA, even though HEPA filtration
is technically, slightly better. To me, this is a flaw on their part. People want HEPA, and HEPA is what people know. Even though S-Class offers nearly identical filtration,
it can cause some people to dismiss this high quality vacuum simply because SEBO chose to go a different route.
In summary, if you have carpeting and still want the flexibility and low profile of a
canister vacuum, I would recommend going with the SEBO K3. The power, durability and cleaning ability is on par with the most reputable and expensive
brands available, and if you're looking for a vacuum that has a unique look that you won't in most homes or stores, the SEBO K3 vacuum cleaner might be just it.
