Has there been a more significant 21st Century invention than the cordless vacuum? No, there hasn’t. At the start of this week-long journey into conspicuous consumption, I said I seek products that “just work”, offer good value, and last a long time. In hindsight, I left out the single most important variable, products that somehow save time. If your product truly saves me time, you can darn near name your price.
That’s the genius of the Dyson DC59. I can vacuum your house in half the time it would take me with your corded vacuum. Don’t believe me? Contact me, give me your address, and I’ll be there in a few hours (or days for my international friends).
The suction is excellent and hard or carpeted floors look great after a quick hit. And as an important added bonus, it doubles as an air guitar. Just try going Jimmy Hendrix on your heavy, bulky, behemoth.
The only blemish is it’s kind of hard to completely empty the DC59’s small, circular canister. But that’s a small price to pay for the time savings and chance to cover Purple Haze.
