Buyers gave these stick vacuums rave reviews.
Sometimes, a stick vacuum cleaner is exactly what you need. Heavier, clunkier upright vacuums may pack more of a punch, but for quick clean-ups and accessing hard-to-reach spots, nothing beats the agility of a stick vacuum (bonus points if it’s cordless). Plus, they're pretty powerful in their own right.
These stick vacuums earned top reviews and ratings from people who bought them, used them, and love them—and they’re all available online for less than $200, so a more convenient tool does not have to be a more expensive one.
