Open Thread: Easy Home Handheld Wet/Dry Vacuum Cleaner

One of the best times to buy cleaning products at Aldi is soon after the new year begins. This is when the grocer has been known to roll out everything from spin mops to handheld steam cleaners to carpet cleaners. One recent option when it comes to getting your house spic and span is the Easy Home Handheld Wet/Dry Vacuum Cleaner.

What We Know:

Easy Home Handheld Wet-Dry Vacuum Cleaner

The Easy Home Handheld Wet/Dry Vacuum Cleaner (product code 99717) sold for $24.99 in January of 2020. A model that looks similar was sold for $19.99 in March of 2019 and February of 2018, so the cost has gone up by $5 in the past year.

The 2020 model’s features include:

  • Built-in lithium ion battery
  • Long nozzle, short nozzle and brush attachment
  • Permanent washable filter
  • Charging station
  • Runs for up to 18 minutes on a full charge
  • Charging time is approximately 5 hours
  • Charge indicator light
  • Bagless; easy to empty
  • Available in blue or gray

The 2019 wet/dry vacuum came with a three-year warranty serviced by Protel Service, which provides service for a variety of Aldi products ranging from Adventuridge backpacks to Visage bathroom scales. We don’t yet know what kind of warranty the 2020 vacuum comes with.

In addition, if a full-size wet/dry vacuum is what you need instead of a handheld one, Aldi sometimes sells those as well, like this 6-gallon one in June of 2019 that cost $44.99.

What We Don’t Know:

We have not used Aldi’s handheld wet/dry vacuum, so we don’t know how well it works. We also don’t know what kind of warranty service this year’s model may come with.

  1. How do I find a replacement filter for this vacuum. Is there a number to call?
    It worked great but the kids lost the filter 🙁

  2. Bought in Jan. 2020 vacuum never worked. The unit battery just does not want to charge even is on the charging cradle. The green light is on showing that the battery is fully charged but it just doesn’t start to work. Battery cradle was installed on the wall followed User Manual and it does not look as the installation is at fault. I have the User Manual and below is an address and -phone number to contact After Sale Support. According to the User Manual customers must to call first before getting help with the vacuum. 855 757 8297 [email protected];, Service Center: Hagele Logistic 1001 Mittel Drive Wood Dale, IL 60191

  3. I had this vacuum and it was awesome. My husband vacuumed up all my sons wet hair and forgot to let the unit airdry before charging it. Needless, to say I am looking for the same vacuum because I loved it.

  4. Hi
    i need charger for my vacuum cleaning model 99717

  5. Can I still buy these …aldi UK says no longer available

  6. Victoria Johnston

    How do you charge it? I can’t find a port to put the plug in charger in…

  7. Can I purchase replacement filters for this vacuum? If so, where can I get them?

  8. First let me say I NEVER write reviews on items, restaurants, hotels, business etc…. I’ve written ONE review online in my entire life (I’m 40) and it was a review on a local veterinarian office to warn people how rude and unprofessional they are. SO NOW LET ME SAY!!! This is the BEST HANDHELD VACUUM I’ve EVER used EVER!!! I bought mine along time ago (dates on vac say 2016) and it was at least 2017 when I bought it at Aldis maybe even 2016 for $19.99. I wish I could attach a picture with this comment. I STILL have it and it still works GREAT! I use it every other day if not every day!!! For small messes hear and there with a family of 4 and pets. Like… kitty litter, crumbs and a WHITE kitchen floor! I’ve bought 4 other handheld vacs ALL $50-$100 and they suck compared to this one. Why I love it??? It keeps a charger longer then any vac I’ve ever used. Doesn’t take long to recharge and still has great suction power. Probably due to the fact that you can wash all of the dust collecting components. Which I do often and that may be why my has lasted this long and still works perfect. And I never leave it on the battery charger for multiple days (BECAUSE I CAN’T) I literally use it all the time! It’s very lightweight and not too loud, at all. It’s slim and not bulky. BEST VACUUM EVER!!!!!!! Now I just hope the newer models are a great as mine! I’m about to order a new one that’s why I ended up on this website! I’m sure I won’t be disappointed!

  9. Well…looks like I need Rachel’s help! WHERE CAN I BUY ONE……help!?!?
