EDITOR’S NOTE: Updated for 2022. We purchased this vacuum in March of 2022, and you can read our full review, including why we returned the vacuum to Aldi for a refund, here.
Vacuums are close to a necessity in most homes and apartments. They’re especially important if you have carpet, but even if you have something like hardwood or vinyl flooring, they can be very helpful in cleaning up whatever ends up on the floor.
Handheld vacuums can do some of that work, but there’s no substitute for a full-sized vacuum. Full-sized vacuums, though, have drawbacks. They can can be bulky and hard to store, which can be a problem for a crowded home or small apartment. They also can be heavy, a problem if you need to haul a vacuum upstairs or down to a basement.
Aldi, known for selling just about everything, has sold handheld vacuums, simple stick vacuums, and regular vacuums. Aldi has also sold cyclonic stick vacuums roughly once a year going back to at least 2017.
Cyclonic stick vacuums are a intended to be the best of both worlds. They’re lightweight and more compact while also being powerful, and some of them even offer the versatility of being cordless. Cyclonic vacuums trace their origins to James Dyson in the 1970s, who eventually founded the company that bears his name. Stick versions of the cyclonic vacuums came later and are one of the many options out there.
What We Know:
The Easy Home Cordless Cyclonic Stick Vacuum (Product Code 802588) is an Aldi Find, meaning it’s only in stores for a short time. In 2022, the vacuum retailed for $89.99, which was $10 more than it cost in 2021. (Cyclonic vacuums range widely in price, but most of them online, especially cordless ones, are over $150.)
According to Aldi, the vacuum comes with the following:
- The vacuum
- A rechargeable lithium battery
- Rotating brush
- Large and small brush nozzles
- Crevice nozzle
- Wall mount bracket
- The ability to use upright or as a handheld vacuum
- Washable HEPA filter
According to Aldi, this can be used as either an upright or handheld vacuum, and it is suitable for “any type of surface.”
What We Don’t Know:
We haven’t tested this particular vacuum, so we don’t know how it performs, especially compared to other cyclonic stick vacuums out there. We also don’t know how durable it is. As of 2022, we have a number of comments about past versions of the stick vacuum, with mixed reviews.
