Life is messy—especially when you have a dog that sheds or a toddler whose favorite activity is “throw Cheerios everywhere." So it’s no surprise that “vacuum” is at the top of your holiday wish list. And these three models will help you get the job done as quick and painlessly as possible. Hey, you might even begin to enjoy your weekend vacuuming sessions.

Editors’ Pick: Dyson V11 Animal Cordless Vacuum Cleaner

The Facts:

  • Cord-free
  • Lightweight design can be converted into handheld device
  • MAX mode captures deep-down dirt

No one knows the joys of a great vacuum quite like someone with a dog. So one of our dog mom editors weighed in. “Even if you don’t have a pet, a vacuum specifically made to sweep up pet hair cleans like nothing else. My dog’s fur sticks into all fabric surfaces like tiny needles, but this vacuum has been my saving grace. I use it on my rugs, hardwood floors, couch and even his dog bed—really, wherever I want, because the vacuum is cordless. I love that it can be converted from a regular vacuum into a mini handheld version with a click, cutting my cleaning time down dramatically.”

Best Value: Bissell Cleanview Upright Bagless Vacuum Cleaner

The Facts:

  • Powerful suction cleans in one pass
  • Washable filter helps reduce household dust and allergens
  • TurboBrush tool cleans upholstery

Maybe you want a vacuum that works well without costing more than $500. Or maybe you need something lightweight that you can easily carry up and down the stairs. Bissell’s Cleanview model is perfect for both scenarios. It’s super lightweight and has powerful suction with OnePass Technology, so you don’t have to re-vacuum the same spot multiple times. It also actually prevents dust and dirt particles from blowing back into the air through the vacuum motor, keeping allergies at bay. What we love most is its detachable hose with multiple tools for cleaning upholstery, dusting and getting into crevices (like couch cushions or baseboards). Easiest money we’ve ever spent.

Splurge-worthy: Irobot Roomba 675 Robot Vacuum With Wi-fi Connectivity

The Facts:

  • Three-stage cleaning system picks up dust and small particles
  • Intelligent sensors guide vacuum under and around furniture
  • Runs for up to 90 minutes before automatically docking and recharging

Imagine binging Netflix and asking your Amazon Alexa to vacuum your house for a full 90 minutes. Luxury. But it’s actually a reality with this robotic vacuum. Thanks to Wi-Fi capabilities, the iRobot Roomba connects with Alexa and Google Assistant so all you have to do is say the word and it will start cleaning. It sweeps up everything from pet hair to large particles (think: rogue Cheerios under the table), and its smart sensors guide it under and around furniture so it never gets stuck. Plus, its edge-sweeping brushes are specifically designed at a 27-degree angle to sweep debris away from those hard-to-reach corners. We frankly can’t put a price on never having to physically vacuum again.
