Top 3 Vacuum Cleaners for Indian Homes

In-Depth Vacuum Cleaner Reviews

#1: Dyson V8 Absolute+ Cord-Free Vacuum Cleaner

Compact design, monstrous benefits, this cordless vacuum cleaner is a no-brainer for any with a good budget and with convenience a priority (even your kids would love to use it).

No products found.

What we like

Got a dirty carpet or flooring? Is it the car interior? Or is it pet hair on the curtain, sofa, etc. that needs to be cleaned?

Well, doesn’t matter, the Dyson V8 is an absolute beast (don’t go by its simply looks) and can be used anywhere, everywhere.

The flooring speaks volumes on the cleanliness of a home. So to help you put your best foot forward, the V8 features a Soft Roller Cleaner Head which wipes off even the finest of particles on the floor.

Then there is also the Direct Drive Cleaner head which digs deep into any carpet and makes it look just like new by removing all dirt and debris.

Not to forget, there are 8 attachments ranging from a mattress brush, soft dusting brush, extension hose to a Flexi-Crevice tool that ensure no corner of the home is ever left dirty even your bed.

It isn’t just upholstery or flooring we are talking about here but even the surrounding air. Providing you with clean air is the HEPA Filter which is capable of capturing 99.97% of microscopic particles and allergens (there’s nothing the V8 can’t clean).

And for all those smalls nooks and crannies that often go unnoticed like the gap between the sofa cushions, car seats, etc. the V8 turns into a handheld vacuum within a matter of seconds.

The Hygienic Dirt Ejector lets you get rid of all the collected dust with just the press of a single button without you having to get your hands dirty or nasty creating a cloud of dust around you (phew, no hassle of having to buy new bags).

It can run 40 minutes on a single charge and notifies you when low on battery which eliminates any guesswork.

And lastly, no cords and an ultra compact design means the vacuum can be put away into any cupboard when not in use.


It does not store a huge amount of dust which means the 0.5-liter bin will need to be emptied out on a regular basis.

Personally, I would have like a little more runtime considering a full charge takes about 2-3 hours but 40 minutes is enough time to have your entire house spic and span.

It also not the ideal vacuum cleaner for wet cleaning so cleaning up spills will need the regular mop.

And lastly, it is pricey but cleaning your home doesn’t get any more convenient than with the Dyson V8 especially considering it is a 2 in 1 vacuum.


  • The V8 is the ultimate cleaning pro that can vacuum floors, sofas, car seats, carpets etc.
  • You can get 8 attachments for various situations
  • Post Motor Filter cleans the air by removing allergens and particles smaller than 0.3 microns
  • No hassle of cords makes storage easy
  • Hygienic Dirt Ejector lets you remove collected dirt with the press of a button
  • Charging can be done conveniently via the dock
  • It can transform into a handheld vacuum for cleaning up smaller gaps
  • Comes with 3 suctions modes (high, low, medium) for efficient cleaning
  • The motor can generate an impressive 115 AW of suction
  • Comes with a low battery indicator
  • Lightweight and compact and thus easy to move it around
  • It is bagless thus requires no bag changes or purchases


  • Recharging takes time
  • Collects only a small amount of dirt
  • Not suitable for wet cleaning
  • On the expensive side

#2: American Micronic 21-Litre Vacuum Cleaner (Best Wet and Dry Vacuum Cleaner in India)

Where the Dyson lacks, the American Micronic makes up by allowing you both, a wet and dry clean. Here’s more about it.

AMERICAN MICRONIC - AMI-VCD21-1600WDx- 21 Litre Stainless Steel Wet & Dry Vacuum Cleaner with Blower...

  • This Vacuum cleaner contains washable dust bag for easy care & durability. you can conveniently remove dirt, pet hairs, tough stains and more with complete ease. The static charge that some users have pointed out is a rare instance that builds naturally when dust is rubbed strongly. That's not an electric current and is harmless

What we like

With a 21-liter container, the American Micronic is the ideal vacuum cleaner for both households and commercial spaces. From large water spills or incoming rainwater to dirt and debris, there is plenty it can clean before it needs any emptying.

But the strength of the vacuum lies in its suction. For this reason, the vacuum is powered by a 1600W motor that delivers a suction so strong, it will wipe clean both wet spills and dry dust in seconds.

Then there is also the Blower function for the tighter spots and for clearing the debris into the trash you do not have to lay a finger on it (after all, it is all about the hygiene).

Further enabling cleaning those tight spots and carpers, curtains, etc are the 6 accessories namely, a hosepipe, floor/carpet brush, crevice nozzle, wet brush, upholstery nozzle, and 2 extension pipes.

With that much power and that big a tank, you probably think moving the vacuum is going to be a heck of a lot of trouble, right? Well, that’s where the caster wheels come in handy making the vacuum easy pull around (no heavy lifting needed here).

The HEPA filter can capture 99.97% of dust particles, those even smaller than 0.3 microns which are invisible to the eyes (so your room remains free of allergens and pathogens that cause asthma).

The dust bags only need a good wash down for reuse thus saving you the tiring and costly task of having to buy new dust bags.

The stainless steel build gives the vacuum both, excellent durability and looks that make it stand out.  And adding to that durability is the Automatic power cut-off feature which prevents damage to the motor in case of fluctuations.


One of the major drawbacks her is that you do not have any control over the speed of the blower or suction.

  • The 21-liter container makes it ideal for both households and commercial spaces.

  • Suction power: 1600mm of water column

What we like

The power and cleaning ability of any vacuum comes down to its suction power and even for a cheaper model, the Quick Clean DX has a suction of 1200W which makes it a good buy.

Just team that up with its attachments like the Flexible hosepipe, carpet/floor brush, crevice nozzle, upholstery brush and it clean pretty much anything (from carpets, floor to even your curtains and drapes, there’s nothing escaping this one).

Furthermore, it has 3 swivel wheels that provide excellent mobility and stability so you can clean from room to room

But if you do need to carry it around like down the stairs, that should be a breeze as well since it comes with a handle at the end and is also quite light and compact.

This also makes storing the vacuum very convenient as it easily fits into any cupboard or even under the sofa or bed when not in use.



Being a handheld vacuum, it does not efficiently clean flooring and has a low dusting collecting capacity.

Also, it cannot be run for more than 10-15 minutes continuously as the motor heats up.

Lastly, the vacuum is a handle with care vacuum as it is vulnerable to breakage or technical failures.

But if you need something on a budget, its design, accessories and powerful suction and blower make the best vacuum cleaner in India for you.

  • Low-profile design, The Auto-Adjust Cleaning Head adapts its height to keep the Dual Multi-Surface Brushes in close contact with different floor surfaces, directly engaging with both hard floors and carpets

What we like

First and foremost, this vacuum works at a simple push of a button and needs little to zero of your attention. Just hit the Clean button and it is off.

Or even better, just use the Onboard Scheduling Option and have the vacuum run even when you are not at home.

Equipped with the iAdapt Navigation, it automatically detects obstacles like the chair, table, etc. and goes around and under them, so every corner of your home is spic and span.

Plus, it does not fall down the staircase or other drop-offs (because it simply is that smart). And with the Dirt Detect Technology, it knows exactly where special attention is needed for the same.

That does not just include just the floor but also hairy carpets (yes you pet owner, you can use this awesome vacuum too).

And when it is done cleaning the house for you, it automatically docks itself and starts to recharge.


The vacuum cannot clean sofas and upholsteries in the house and neither is there a HEPA filter for cleaning the air.

Also, it is on the expensive side.

So why should you get this vacuum? Because if you do not want waste your time away mopping or even vacuuming, this set it and forget it vacuum is just what you need (so you finally have time for the important stuff in life).

#5: Karcher WD 3 Canister Vacuum Cleaner

The Karcher WD 3 is another highly versatile canister vacuum. While it lacks the power or capacity of the American Micronic, if you need one for a smaller home, it is just the canister vacuum you need.

Karcher WD 3 *EU Wet & Dry Vacuum Cleaner (Yellow/Black)
  • Wet & Dry Vacuum Cleaner with patented filter removal technology, quick and easy removal of the filter by folding out the filter cartridge without any contact with dirt for wet and dry suction without changing the filter
  • This wet & dry vacuum cleaner offers the possibility of attaching different nozzles directly on the suction hose, easy vacuuming even in the tightest of spaces
  • Blower function: Where vacuuming is not possible, the practical blower function can be used

What we like

The 1000-watt motor gives vacuum high-powered suction and blowing capabilities. So whether it is clearing dirt from ‘unreachable corners’ or have an overflow to clear, the vacuum does it all with great efficiency (you want a clean home, you get a clean home).

Plus, there are additional nozzles to give you a helping hand while cleaning the sofa, car, curtains, etc. For corners where the nozzles fail to reach, the let the blower work its magic.

It has a 17-liter capacity tank which is plenty to rid your house of dirt, debris and even a pipe burst without any need to the canister after every couple of minutes of cleaning.

The though the cartridge filter does not capture the finest of dust as a HEPA filter, it sure does do a great job as it can capture the bigger particles, allergens, etc.

Lastly, moving the vacuum even with a full tank is easy because of the lightweight plastic build and the 4 durable wheels at the bottom. Opening and closing the container takes a mere 4-5 seconds with the push and pull locking system.

Also, did I mention it is more energy efficient than the American Micronic? Yup, it uses 20-25% less electricity so won’t shoot up your electricity bills even with regular use.


A HEPA filter would have been even more efficient at cleaning the air than the cartridge filter the vacuum comes with. Plus, it can be really noisy.

Also, compared to the American Micronic vacuum, it has a lower number of accessories which limits its use.


  • 1000-watt motor means it has enough suction for the worst spills and dirt
  • 17-liter tank capacity you the effort of having to empty out the container regularly
  • Even the filter needs no regular checks or replacements due to the Cartridge filter
  • Pull and push locking system makes it easier to remove the container

That tandem with the 1900W motor creates ample suction power and airflow to give you seamless cleaning results on both floors and upholsteries.

But suction power alone isn’t enough, to clean the dusty floors there also needs to be an equally capable attachment which is exactly what the Multi-Clean nozzle is.

Similarly, the Turbo Brush can help you clean dirty and hairy carpets and can remove 25% more hair and dust than cheaper vacuums.

Plus, with the crevice tool, you clean below sofas and other filthy corners of the home without having to move the heavy furniture.

With the ActiveLock, attaching those nozzles takes just seconds. Snap it on and you are good to go.

The 1.5-liter dust container can be easily emptied out without even having to touch it (no hassle of bags here).

Moving the vacuum around the house room to room can be done without a pinch as it comes with really large wheels.

No products found.

What we like

What we love most about this vacuum is the 4-stage filtration process. From dust to even particles as small as 0.3 microns, there is nothing escaping the EKO GREEN’S HEPA filter, the Sponge Filter and the Cyclonic system that removes dust and sends back the clean air back into the environment.

But its no air purifier right? This is why it has been armed with an 800-Watt motor to ensure your carpets, curtains or car are also spic and span.

And to further help you with that it also comes with Main Floor Brush, Telescopic Extension Tube & Crevice Nozzle Brush so every nook and cranny of the house can be cleaned.

Since the vacuum is a bagless vacuum you neither have the headache of emptying out the bag after every little clean nor have to incur the cost of buying new bags.

And once the canister does fill up, emptying it out takes mere minutes as it easily comes out with the press of a button.

It has a 4-meter wire cord which ensures you can easily clean room without having to switch outlet regularly


Well for starts, it does not clean floors like the Dyson. Also, it is not the ideal vacuum cleaner for wet surfaces.

What we like

Firstly, it is a bagless vacuum cleaner so no headache of checking in on the bag and cleaning or replacing it before every run.

The essential cleaning kit consists of 3 attachments that are tailor-made for every cleaning task. From crevices, curtains to attachments that can go around blocked corners, it will leave no stone unturned when it comes to cleaning.

Making the vacuum so effective is the PowerCylone 4 Technology that instantly separates the dust and the air allowing the vacuum to capture more dirt efficiently.

Further, the EPA filter captures microscopic allergens and pollens while the Turbo nozzle takes care of pet hair to give you fresh and pathogen-free home.

And with an 1800 motor that can generate a suction of 350,  it makes little work of cleaning sofas, floors, curtains and even a car.

Lastly, though it is lightweight and compact (easy peasy to store and move it around), is also quite durable, giving it a clear edge over some of the similar models.

#9: Black and Decker VH-801 Handheld Vacuum Cleaner

Black and Decker have made a name for themselves across the globe with good budget products and VH-801 is another one of those handheld vacuum cleaners that offer good value for money.

What we likee

For handheld vacuum, 800-watts is plenty of power for excellent suction and blowing so you can be rest assured of excellent results be it carpets, mattresses or curtains you intend on cleaning.

With the blower nozzle attached, you can even give your computer, laptop, TV, etc. a good nice clean so even they operate at their best.

And you do not have to deal with the hassle of a dust bag. The 900ml dust bowl is big enough to run for 2-3 cleaning cycles and can be taken out the cleaned easily.

The vacuum weighs just about 2kgs but if you still do not want to be carrying it in your hands, the shoulder strap should come in handy.

Likewise, there are plenty of attachments too for various cleaning purposes like Crevice nozzle for confined spaces, Extension hose, multi-purpose brush, upholstery brush, etc.


One of the few drawbacks in the 3-meter cord which is smaller than some of the other handheld vacuums on the list which means the movement is restricted.

It has lower durability and does not have any filter for cleaning air but considering the lower cost, still a worthy buy from a really good brand.

Vacuum Cleaner Buying Guide

If you want to make a smart purchase, it is important to know what to look for in a vacuum cleaner and in this section, we’ll cover exactly that.

Find the right type

There are 5 main vacuum cleaners that you will come across in the marketplace, namely:

  • Canister Vacuum Cleaner
  • Upright Vacuum Cleaner
  • Stick Vacuum Cleaner
  • Handheld Vacuum Cleaner
  • Robotic Vacuum Cleaner

Upright Vacuum Cleaners

Found in almost every household, upright vacuums are ideal if you want to clean large open spaces like a hall, carpeted area, wooden flooring, etc. The best part about these vacuums is that, as the name suggests, all the cleaning is done in an upright position (yup, it needs little to no bending) and thus is easy on the back.

To give sparkling clean flooring, the vacuum comes with one/two motors that are the driving force behind the suction and the revolving brush. Plus, you can also adjust the height as per your convenience. Also, due to their upright design, they are quite easy to store and fit in the smallest of spaces.

On the downsides, while it is the best vacuum cleaner in India for all types of floorings, carpets and rugs, it doesn’t work that well on sofas, curtains or even under the furniture. Apart from that, as they are heavy, pushing and pulling the vacuum is tougher.


  • It is best suited for flooring and large carpeted areas
  • The upright design makes storage easy
  • The bags are bigger thus won’t have to be cleaned every time
  • It does not require you to bend for cleaning


  • Won’t help in cleaning curtains, sofas, etc.
  • Requires pulling and pushing
  • These vacuums are usually heavy
  • Won’t help in cleaning below the furniture

Canister Vacuum

From floors, drapes, and curtains to even going below the sofa, Canister vacuum is master of all trades. The vacuum gets its name from its canister-like design enclosed in which are a motor and a container which consists of a bag for storing the dust and dirt.

The hose fits into a suction socket on the canister and with the various attachments the vacuum can efficiently clean sofas, ceiling fans, underneath the furniture, staircases, well, the list goes on. And with wheels, moving the huge canister around these corners becomes a whole lot easier.

But with canister vacuums comes the headache of having to switch dust bags on a regular basis. Also, their bulky build and multiple cords also make it difficult to store.


  • It’s the ultimate all-rounder as it can clean sofas, curtains, staircases, etc.
  • Also capable of cleaning under the furniture
  • Easy to move around with the wheels
  • There’s an attachment for everything


  • Storing the vacuums is tough due to cords and bulky build
  • Bags need to be changed regularly

Stick Vacuums

The sleeker sexier version of an upright vacuum, these stick vacuums are everything an upright vacuum isn’t. That is because their lightweight build allows them to be used in the smallest of corners and even under the bed, sofa, etc. (even your car).

It works efficiently even on curtains, carpets. The adjustable handles ensure you can work at a convenient height and since these are battery-operated you can kiss goodbye to the hassle of cords.


  • Lightweight and easy to move around as there are no cords
  • Eliminates the need to bend with an adjustable handle
  • Efficiently cleans under the sofa, bed, curtains or even the car
  • Easy to store


  • The battery needs to be changed regularly
  • Not as effective as an upright vacuum on floors
  • Collects only a small amount of dust

Handheld Vacuums

These vacuums offer unmatched portability and ease of use mainly because of their compact build (some weigh about 2-5 kgs). Not just that, the latest handheld vacuums are battery-operated and thus do not require you wasting time detangling wires making storing these vacuums easy as well. They are the ideal vacuums for cars, sofas, curtains and so on.

But for all the convenience they offer, their ability is limited and they can only store a limited amount of dust and dirt.


  • Offer excellent portability
  • Lightweight build
  • Ideal for cleaning car interiors, sofas, curtains, and other upholsteries
  • Cost-effective


  • Do not work on floorings
  • The battery needs regular change
  • Stores only a small amount of dust and dirt

Robotic Vacuums

These disc-shaped vacuums are the 21st-century vacuum cleaners. Being battery powered, cords aren’t the issue. Plus, they take ease of cleaning to a whole different level by eliminating the need for you to even be around the vacuum (they even find their own way to the charging dock).

You can have the vacuum cleaner running while sipping your favorite coffee or early morning while you are still asleep by scheduling a run using the timer. The vacuum notifies you when its low on battery and charging takes no more than an hour.

These vacuums are suited for any smooth flooring, be it wood, marble, tile, etc. but doesn’t perform equally well on sofas and curtains


  • You can schedule to run at a specific time
  • Requires hardly any human intervention and even find its way to the docking station
  • Works well on all kinds of floorings
  • It is battery operated thus eliminates the hassle of cords
  • Easy to store and move around.


  • Dust collected is very little
  • Not as efficient on sofas, curtains and other similar items
  • It can be expensive

Bagged vs Bagless Vacuums

Bagged Vacuums

This is a hot topic when it comes to vacuum cleaners. There are 2 main types of bagged vacuums. Washable & reusable bags and there are vacuums with disposable bags. The only problem with disposable bags is that they add to the overall cost.

Bagless Vacuums

Bagless vacuums come with large contains or filters and while they do need cleaning, the frequency of it is lesser. These vacuums are not just the cheaper alternative (because you won’t have to make regular filter purchases) but also the more convenient choice.


Vacuum cleaners use many different types of filters like charcoal filters, foam filters, disk filters, and HEPA filters. HEPA filters are the preferred choice when it comes to cleaning homes because can capture 99.97% of allergens and pollens. This, in turn, creates a safe environment especially for those suffering from Asthma or other dust-related allergies.


Let’s get one thing straight, vacuums can be really noisy, to a level that it is can be frustrating as hell. This why it is important you check the noise levels (measured in decibels or dB) that vacuum motor generates. An acceptable range is usually between 60-65 dB while anything between 70-80 dB can be a little noisier.


You don’t buy vacuum cleaner just for the flooring. If you want to make most of your vacuum cleaner you would want it to be able to clean the curtains, your car, sofas and even clean under the sofas and bedsThis is why a vacuum often comes with 4-5 attachments like the car seat attachment, Flexi crevice nozzle, mattress cleaner and more.


Your vacuum isn’t your gym equipment thus from lifting it to pulling and pushing it should be rather easy. Handheld vacuums offer the highest portability and are also the easiest to store. Even stick vacuums are lightweight and easy to store as well.

But its not so easy with canister and upright vacuums as they are heavy. Plus, because of the large container, canister vacuums also need more storage space.

Difference between Wet and Dry Vacuums

The main difference between dry and wet vacuums is that dry vacuums only work on dry dirt, dust, pollen whereas wet vacuums also clean liquid spills. In order to store both, the wet vacuums come with containers that are split into two.

The switch from dry vacuuming to wet vacuuming can be made via a switch on the handle. The cords and internal parts of such vacuums tend to be waterproof in order to prevent water from seeping in and resulting in a short circuit.

Corded or Battery Operated?

There is no doubt that battery operated vacuum like the Dyson Absolute+ or even Robot Vacuums have the edge when it comes to convenience but they tend to be costlier than a corded one. Also, you need to check on the run-time to ensure you do not need to charge it multiple time between each cycle. 45-60 minutes should be ample run-time on a single charge.

If you are going for a corded vacuum make sure it comes with a long cord. Anything around 5-meter or more should eliminate the need to have power outlets at multiple places and does lets you complete your cleaning task uninterrupted.
