Best Stick Vacuum List Published by Vacuum Cleaner Advisor
Seattle, WA, November 28, 2013 --( Stick vacuums are a great way to deal with small-to-medium size cleanup jobs. They are not big and bulky like uprights and they're easy to carry, move and store. Stick vacs are an excellent fit for a modestly sized home or apartment.

Every year Vacuum Cleaner Advisor publishes its list of the best stick vacuums. A number of manufacturers made the cut in their latest 2013 list. These include Miele, Hoover, Shark, Eureka, Electrolux and Bissell. The vacuum models are divided into cost, from top-end, to mid-range, to inexpensive.

At the top-end of the stick vac market lies the Miele Quickstep S194. This vacuum isn’t cheap at over $200USD but it is quiet, powerful and great at pulling up pet hair. It is also bagged and corded, something most stick vacs are not. It is a 2-in-1 vacuum and it converts to a handheld. In addition, it has maximum and minimum suction settings which help when cleaning delicate items like curtains or lamp shades. Owners give the Quickstep great reviews.

Mid-range stick vacuums include the Hoover Linx, the Shark Freestyle and the Electrolux Ergorapido Ion. All three machines are cordless and prices range from about $120USD to $150USD. The Linx is a popular unit that weighs just over 7 lbs. Powered by lithium ion batteries the Linx can run for about 15-20 minutes on a charge. The Shark Freestyle is lightweight, powerful and, like the Miele Quickstep, has high and low power settings. In addition, the Freestyle recharges very quickly. The Electrolux is both a stick vac and a handheld vac. It weighs just over 5 lbs and is noted for being very maneuverable.

The Hoover SH20030, Eureka Quick-up 96JZ and Bissell PowerEdge 81L2-T round out the list and can usually be found for under $100. The Hoover is the most expensive of this group and is corded. It is also a little heavier at 9 lbs but it garners top-notch ratings from consumers. The Eureka can be found for about $50USD and is cordless and very light at only 4 lbs. It also doubles as a handheld. The Bissell retails for about $50USD as well and is corded and powerful. It is best on hard surfaces.
