One for All, the Dyson Digital Slim DC59 #cutthecord

Idc59t’s no secret, I am a huge Dyson fan. The test for me as far as suction power goes, is always that horrid trunk carpeting which every tiny little grain gets stuck for an eternity in.  Ever since I vacuumed my car trunk right before handing it in to end my lease, I was hooked.  2 Dyson upright vacuums and 2 handheld cordless later, we haven’t looked back.  With 3 kids, having a vacuum cleaner that you can depend on is so important.  Gone are the days I am vacuuming once a week, in fact it seems like I am vacuuming almost every single day.  That’s why I love my Dyson DC59 Animal Cordless Vacuum.

I still do the once a week thorough cleaning but for the in between clean ups of crumbs and dust bunnies, we love the digital slim.  Depending on your needs, we have our docking station hung in our kitchen.  It’s a little more visible than some would like, but to me, it’s so beautiful and cool visually, I don’t mind displaying it.   It’s quite the conversation starter too.

We recently upgraded from the DC35 to the DC59 and while we didn’t think it could get any better, it really is!  Not only does it have twice the suction power, almost as strong as my upright, the battery life is longer as well, which really makes my use of it more frequent for a slightly more deeper clean in between. I also noticed a distinct decrease in weight, coming in at only 4.6lbs which is very comfortable.  It comes with a bevy of accessories – a combination tool which is my most frequently used tool, a crevice tool which I love to use deep inside the crevices of the car and the stick which transforms the DC59 into a mini upright for a quick sweep of the floor.  The maneuverability is amazing and super smooth thanks to a mini version of Dyson’s proprietary ball design.  It also comes with a motorized mini tool, which is my new favorite tool, perfect for vacuuming upholstery.

miniThe main noticeable upgrades to the Dyson DC59 Animal Cordless Vacuum from the DC35 are:

  • longer battery life, from 3 to 6 minutes on boost and 13 minutes to 26 on eco-mode.  I know a chief decision point is the battery life, but really, if you need more juice than this, you need a standard vacuum cleaner.
  • more accessories, I originally put aside the mini motorized tool not knowing what it was for and thinking I probably didn’t need it.  That’s why you should read your manual.  When I learned exactly what the mini motorized tool was for, it was a game changer.  I am constantly cleaning my couch and under the cushions, this little tool cuts my vacuuming in half!
  • alternating from boost to eco and back can only be done when you hold down the trigger which is how Dyson is able to get more minutes from the battery.
  • emptying the bin is a LOT easier, able to be done ambidextrously.

Priced at a MSRP of $499, it’s not for the faint of heart, but for many, this investment may be enough to clean your home and be your primary vacuum.  I could see the DC59 being ideal for manhattanites and yet it’s perfect for my household of 7 and all their messes.  So #cutthecord and get the revolutionary Dyson DC59 Animal Cordless Vacuum.
