When the chaps over at Morphy Richards Home Innovators asked me if I would like to review one of their products which they had launched in partnership with Age UK, I knew immediately who I would offer the review to. My Brother has fantastic in laws and his mother and farther in law are in their eighties, so would be the perfect people to give any product a test run. So I am going to hand you over to my Brother (who can be found tweeting @Boroyouths).
The Morphy Richards Never Loses Suction Lift Away Bagless Upright Vacuum Cleaner. Well, that’s a mouthful of a name isnt it! Thankfully the vacuum is a lot more practical to use than it is to say its full name! Straight away it was easy to realise that it is a lot more powerful than it actually looks, the suction really is a plus point for the cleaner. Add to that the pivital floorhead and it becomes not only easy to use but quick to use as you don’t need to go over the same spot time and again because the suction lifts first time.
We liked how we could also see any potential blockages through the small plastic window in the floor head, the one touch emptying sytem also meant not only was it easy for myself to use, but also my ‘want to help’ 5 year old daughter and my aging mother in law also. With a simple button release the bottom of the collection devise opens up meaning you can just hold it over an open bin, press the button and within seconds its empty and ready to use again.
Its noticeable that the vacuum keeps its suction when moving from a carpetted area to a hardwood or laminate flooring area, which is great as there is nothing worse than stopping, getting onto hands and knees to change tight switches when moving into different areas of the house.
The mother in law who struggles to get around soon decided that of course I wasnt doing it right and needed to do it herself. She said she found it easier than expected to manouver about and the swivel head would take a little getting used to. It also was lighter than expected and the handle on the collection device is idea to use when carrying the vacuum upstairs.
The Morphy Richards Never Loses Suction Lift Away Bagless Upright Vacuum Cleaner is priced at £199 and comes with a 2 year guarantee as standard, 5 year upon registration with Morphy Richards.
Each of the items in the range of products come with up to a two year guarantee and a proportion of the sales (3%) go to Age UK, providing a vital source of income to help older people across the country, which is a great idea as I I believe older people need products to make everyday a little easier. I also loved the pictures of my sister in Law’s mum with the vacuum. She doesn’t look in her 80’s does she.
