Note: The following giveaway is open to Canadians only.
Like the title of this post? I thought it was aptly named. Because after telling you how much I love Dyson here (Dyson DC35 review) here (Dyson Air Muliplier review) and here (Dyson HOT review) – I’m finally giving my awesome readers the chance to win one of their very own. Squee!
So here’s the deal: you let me tell you once again how Dyson has knocked my socks off, and I’ll put up a nifty contest for my Canadian friends.
This time around, I had the pleasure of receiving the Dyson DC37 Turbinehead Animal for review. While we don’t have animals, we do have two toddler boys – who literally create a path of destruction (sand, dirt, styrofoam fluff, cookie crumbs, crushed Cheerios… etc, etc) wherever they go.
Having only ever used an upright – my beloved Dyson DC14, a relic now! – I was quite taken with the idea of trying out a canister vacuum. Super light, a myriad of attachments, NO BAG, and no loss of suction – what’s not to love? And so, I soon proceeded to fall in love with my new DC37, Dyson’s first canister vacuum cleaner with Ball technology.
Now, since my native tongue is not techno-talk, let me break it down for you in plain English:
Three words: NO MORE WHEELS. The machines use an articulating chassis and central pivot point for negotiating tight turns. Translation: they don’t snag on furniture, they don’t drift on hard floors and they definitely don’t topple. However, they do nip into corners, dart around sofas and, with their instant telescopic hoses, stretch up stairs.
(This is likely my favourite feature of a canister unit; the ability to vacuum stairs without pulling out the dreaded hose and carting the upright from stair to stair.)
True story: The new Dyson ball vacuum cleaners took 6 years, 497 engineers and 2496 prototypes to develop. My home, like many Canadian homes, has multiple floor types: hard wood, tile and carpet. To make cleaning a breeze (and highly effective), the DC37 has a “Triggerhead”; a simple finger trigger activates the brush bar – on for carpets, off for hard floors. #thankyouDyson
Radial Root Cyclones
Insert techno talk here: Other vacuum cleaners still rely on bags or filters to trap dust, losing suction over time. Dyson’s Radial Root Cyclone technology captures more microscopic dust than any other cyclone. Every angle of each airway is honed to ensure microscopic particles – as tiny as 0.5 microns or 1/5,000th of a pin head – are spun out of the airflow and captured in the bin.
(In other words, it kicks ass.) Here’s my shiny new Dyson DC37:
I also like to use the handy tools (mini turbine head, stiff bristle brush and articulating hard floor tool) to remove dust, dirt and stray hair (sigh, mostly mine) from awkward places. And clean up? A breeze, of course. The new machines all have a trigger-bin emptying system. So, with the press of a button, dust and dirt can be emptied directly into the waste bin.
In short, while I love the sturdiness of my upright, I’m now a believer in the ergonomics, comfort and convenience of a canister vacuum. The Dyson DC37 far exceeded my expectations; if you’ve got pets, children, or simply a desire to give your house the most thorough cleaning ever, it’s definitely the right machine for you.
Even though I’m in love with my new canister vacuum, I know that a lot of my readers would be more familiar with the traditional Dyson upright vacuums. So, I’ve hand selected the Dyson DC43 Animal (value $699.99) as a giveaway!
“Dyson DC43 Animal is a Dyson Ball upright vacuum with the latest Radial Root Cyclone technology. It generates the strongest suction power at the cleaner head, to powerfully remove dust, dirt and pet hair from the home. Includes a Mini turbine head to clean pet hair and stubborn dirt from upholstery, stairs and the car.”
