“The Shark Rocket power head vacuum has all of its best features in the head. The power head is light in your hand and remarkably easy to maneuver. Its compact design makes it the perfect grab-and-go for day-to-day floor cleaning or any time you want to experience heavy-duty cleaning power without the heavy lifting. The power head has powerful deep carpet cleaning, comparable to some of the biggest upright vacuums, with nearly half the weight. It also features fingertip controls on the handle providing a seamless transition from hard floors to carpet and back. Innovative product features such as a pop-up dust-cup with a quick release foot pedal and easy dust cup emptying with the push of a button. The power head also is the first of its kind with a hood style brush roll access-with removable and rinse-able brush rolls-making vacuum maintenance quick and easy. The adjustable telescoping wand helps to customize the wand to your comfort and allows for easy storage. This AH452 also comes with an additional gentle touch hard floor brush roll for enhanced hard floor cleaning and an optional on-board brush roll holster to attach to the wand of the vacuum for easy brush roll exchange.”
What did I think?
When I first took the Shark Rocket Powerhead out of the box all I could think about was that this was the most gorgeous vacuum I have ever owned. Blue is one of my favorite colors and it is such a beautiful vacuum. In the past I have just wanted to hide my vacuums away in a closet and this one I don’t mind leaving out if company is over because it just looked so nice.
How does it work?
This vacuum is so easy and light weight that even my 3 1/2 year old could push it around, turn it off and on, etc. My toddlers are constant tornado’s and I vacuum multiple times a day. I love the light because it makes it so easy to see things in dark spaces and fits under almost anything. It picked up cheerios, hardened play doh, crackers, gold fish and other randomness with ease. The only thing the vacuum had trouble with that I have noticed was pieces of fig bars or chex cereal, unless I smashed the cereal with my foot first.
We have wood floors in most of the rooms in our house. The only rooms that don’t are the kitchen and our bathroom. It left the wood floors glowing and got a lot of dust and dirt that my other vacuum was leaving behind. If you watch the shark promo commercial, they have the people vacuum their entire house with their old vacuum and then with their new Shark Rocket Powerhead, so that is what I did. These results are in the bottom right-hand corner of the picture below.
I thought that was a lot of dirt that my older vacuum failed to pick up. The only thing that I think could make this vacuum better was a hose to pick up larger items. I don’t expect it to pick up super large things, but it would be cool if it could at least pick up Chex cereal without my having to smash it with my foot first. When it comes to deep cleaning and getting all of the dust you thought you already got it is awesome though!
You can find this vacuum for $199.00 at Bed Bath and Beyond. If you sign up for offers you can get up to 20% off you purchase which would take about $40.00 off your purchase. It would be a great deal and a great gift for yourself or someone you know!
