I have always wanted a fancy Dyson vacuum cleaner so when the opportunity to take one for a test drive came about, I jumped at the chance. In my head this was a device that could do no wrong but as I tried it out in different areas of my life, I learned that there were some things that it just could not do.
Here is my list of the Top 3 things that the Dyson Cinetic DC77 Multi Floor device could not handle.
1. Children’s Bedtime Stories
I mean, honestly, it’s not like I was asking the Dyson to shower the kids as well. All I needed it to do was to take care of the kids bedtime stories so that I could flip the laundry (a task it also failed at, by the way). When I heard my daughter crying, I entered her room to find the Dyson DC77 just lying in her bed pretending to sleep. Strike #1.
2. Designated Driver
Every now and then I like to go out for drinks with my friends and I figured the “multi” tag that the Dyson Cinetic DC77 carries meant that I had a full time designated driver. Wrong! I guess I should have clued in when Dyson just sat in the car the whole time I was hanging out with my friends. As the car sped through a pile of garbage cans and right into my garage door, I knew I had put the car in the wrong hands.
3. Road Hockey Goalie
Picture this. Tied at 9 in a next goal wins situation against my 6 year old and he is in on a breakaway. All the Dyson has to do is make one save but it doesn’t even move an inch as my son easily stickhandles around him and taps the ball in for the winning goal. Do you have any idea how embarrassing it is to lose to your 6 year old in a hockey game?! I used to be good at hockey!!!
Luckily for the Dyson Cinetic DC77 Multi Floor Vacuum it does do one thing better than any other vacuum I have ever owned. It makes me look like a superstar cleaner and it does so with ease. One of my favourite features is the self-adjusting cleaner head because it picks up the dirt that sneaks between the hardwood floor boards and with little ones in the house there is a lot of it… I also love that the hose stretches from my main floor all the way to the top step on the second level. Anyone who has lugged a vacuum step by step up the stairs knows how valuable that feature is!
I guess when I really think of it, the one thing the Dyson Cinetic does really well kind of outweighs the things I was picking on above. You get what you pay for, folks, and the Dyson Cinetic DC77 Multi Floor Vacuum delivers in every way. Check out the links above to see more details and information on where to pick yours up today.
Disclosure: I got to keep the Dyson Cinetic vacuum I received in order to facilitate this blog post. It really did stink at driving the car and I wouldn’t recommend trying it. Also, I got through this entire post without making a joke about how the vacuum sucks. D’oh!
