I was flipping through the channels when I saw Shark had a new vacuum called the The Shark® Rocket® Complete with DuoClean™ Technology. I have an older Shark vacuum called a Shark Powerhead and although I love it the one thing that drove me crazy about it is that it wouldn’t pick up cereal or items of that size. So I ended up having to sweep anyways. If you have carpet I could only imagine it would be even more annoying. I mean vacuums are supposed to vacuum right? In my last review for the Shark Powerhead vacuum I had said that the only con of the vacumn is that it wouldn’t pick of items like that. Well they must have listen to me because oh my gosh this new one picks up items that are even larger than cereal! I have to look under my couch before I vacuum now because if one of my kids shirts are under there or a stuffed animal it will suck it up. It is crazy powerful.
When I saw how powerful it was on tv just picking up tiny beads and big messes I was like I can’t wait to try this baby out of myself. Luckily I am a Shark blogger, so when I see new products on TV I get kinda excited because usually I get to test them out. (Horrible job right?) *sarcasm*
So when it arrived, I was super excited. I knew my toddlers would help me with my review because they both like to make messes, so I just let them be themselves, and it was business as usual. I used the broom and I swept everything from the dining room, living room and kitchen into one room just for testing purposes. It said that it wouldn’t move piles of crap around, and it will suck it up easily. I was super impressed that it picked up cheerios, playdoh, a hardened piece of quesadilla from dinner and a small piece of tissue. This issue alone had me sold on this vacuum, but it doesn’t stop there.
Can you believe it can also turn into a hand vac? Yep! It is like a universal vacuum. You can vacuum as usual, or you can remove it from the base and add whatever attachments you may need for the job, and you are in business. They even have one that slides under your oven. You can not even imagine the crap that gets under there. If you bought this for your mom or your wife or your husband if he likes to clean they would be in heaven! I know I am! I am like hey kids make a mess I need something to clean. Haha.
The only con I can think of is that is top heavy, so it may be harder for some people to manage it. It does come with an attachment for the wall so you can put it away because it cannot stand up on its own, but we haven’t been able to find a place in our house to hang it, so we just keep everything in the closet for now.
If you have several vacuums, brooms and dust pans if you get this vacuum you can donate them all because this is the only vacuum you will ever need!
