REVIEW: Kenmore Intuition Canister Vacuum

written by Hila Antal

I’ve had my current Upright Vac for so long, I don’t even remember how old it is. Yes it’s ancient, but it did the job…sort of.  So, when I was given the opportunity to try out Kenmore’s new Intuition Canister Vacuum with QuietGuard I jumped at the chance.  With a new house, should come a new vacuum cleaner too don’t you think?

Putting it together out of the box was as simple as can be.  The cobalt blue shade looked really cool. I was immediately intrigued by the electronic touch control on the handle, which is light years ahead of my old upright.  I obviously didn’t know what I was missing.   The control pad was simple enough and easy to use.  I don’t know how I managed before this!

The suction was great and adjusted quickly from carpet to bare floors with their two-motor system with one motor for suction and another that powers the agitator brush. The best part was that it is truly one of the quieter vacuums I’ve ever used.  I also loved the Telescoping wand and 8-foot hose which reaches ceiling fans with its own included accessory, corners with the crevice tool and all the high places I never had before.  Among all its positives, the QuietGuard feature is the most appealing one about Kenmore’s Intuition Canister Vacuum.  While my prior vacuum use to send my girls running for the hills, they haven’t gone running yet.

I also appreciated how easily the Intuition Canister Vacuum  maneuvered along turns and quickly detached for stair and corner cleaning.

The only negative was that the canister hindered movement a bit; it got caught on furniture and I had to retrieve it a couple of times to continue vacuuming around the room. I do admit though, its a huge asset in vacuuming stairs – it blows an upright away.  Something now I can truly appreciate with lots of new stairs to vacuum.

The Kenmore’s Intuition Canister Vacuum is available at Sears stores nationwide and available online at for around $400.00.
