Electrolux brought out their first vacuum cleaner in 1912, and over a century later their range has grown to include a number of models equipped with the latest technology. The company sells more than 40 million products every year to customers all over the world, their products ranging from kitchen appliances to washing machines, vacuum cleaners and barbeques. Electrolux is a Swedish company which has truly gone global, with net sales of over 112 billion Swedish Krona (roughly AUD $17 billion) and the company employing over 60,000 people worldwide.
Electrolux equip their vacuum cleaners with a number of innovative features. Whether it’s an upright, canister or handheld vacuum cleaner model, each has unique technological flourishes which help it stand out. Their upright Ergorapido models combine two models into one, with the upright vacuum housing a smaller, detachable handheld vacuum within its body; the range also comes with LED headlights and a 180-degree swivel nozzle. Their UltraOne canister vacuum, meanwhile, has highly efficient suction and filtration which eliminates over 99% of particulate matter from the exhaust air.
What our survey respondents say about Electrolux vacuum cleaners
Canstar Blue’s most recent survey of just over 1,200 consumers who had purchased purchased a new vacuum cleaner within the past 3 years garnered the following comments, among many others, from customers of Electrolux:
|I like the convenience of just grabbing it without having to connect the cord to a power point. Also, the upright model means I don’t have to bend down as much as with a standard vacuum. I love the light on the bristle head which is great for seeing dust under beds/tables.||It doesn’t suck up as much dust from corners and crevices as my older standard vacuum which had the option of removing the bristled head and sucking up with the hose.|
|Quality reliable vacuum cleaner easy to use around the house and has low noise and lasts a long time.||Object catcher very difficult to clean of fluff.|
|Good reputation. Great quality. Warranty.||Some of the plastic levers and catches seem flimsy. I worry that when parts are opened or closed they might snap off or break their casings.|
|This particular vacuum is quiet, it has great suction power and picks up a lot of dust.||I wish standard vacuum cleaners can vacuum up water as well.|
|Works well, very effective. Easy to empty, easy to use and the tools store in the charger.||Suction is too strong and it is hard to push the vacuum cleaner head over the carpet.|
