Product Snapshot

Overview

The Dyson Omni-glide is a top-of-the-range handheld vacuum cleaner released in 2021. It is one of the best vacuum cleaners for dealing with pet hair, and since it comes with a HEPA-14 filter, it can easily filter out up to 99.995% of allergens.

Weighing only 4.41 pounds, the Dyson Omni-glide is very easy to move around with, and since it also has four 360-degree castors on its bottom, it is much easier to maneuver than the Dyson Outsize Absolute+.

Its battery lasts 28 minutes on its highest setting, and with a noise output of only 69.6 decibels, it will hardly cause any disruptions during cleaning.

Consensus

our Verdict

The Dyson Omni-glide garnered praise from product testers precisely thanks to its maneuverability.

Experts from Rtings had a very easy time cleaning below furniture and around corners during their tests, and since it only weighs 4.4 pounds, they didn’t report any incidences of wrist strain after experimenting.

Product reviewers from Tech Radar were also satisfied with its 20-minute run time and liked that the Omni-glide had swappable batteries.

They could clean for up to 20 minutes while having set it to Eco mode (suction force of 6 kPa) and noted that it only lasted 18 minutes when operating on Max (10 kPa). Testers from Vacuum Tester also scored it 9/10 on cleaning hardwood floors and 5/10 on cleaning carpets.

However, product reviewers were also slightly disappointed that the Omni-glide was not that great at picking up small or large debris from carpets and wished that it was as versatile as the Ecovacs DEEBOT. They also didn’t like its small 0.09-liter dirt compartment.

ReasonS to Buy

  • Great maneuverability
  • Lightweight and portable
  • Two suction modes
  • Swappable batteries

Reason to Avoid

  • Not ideal for picking up debris on carpets
  • Somewhat short battery life
  • Small 0.09-liter dirt compartment
