Oreck Touch Upright Bagless, BU10000
Oreck has been a trusted brand for years, although their vacuums never seemed to modernize until recently. New styling or not, the Oreck Touch remains the kid of vacuum that will be dependable for years to come. This powerful, yet affordable, vacuum exhibits better performance than many high-end models while costing less money.
The Touch might not be budget-friendly, but it offers a tremendous amount of vacuum for the money. Despite being a bit heavy at nearly 17 pounds, the Oreck Touch is extremely maneuverable, requiring minimal effort to turn and push it. It can be more of a work out when tackling stairs or the entire house, but the 30 foot cord is reasonably long. An LED headlight is included to illuminate your cleaning path and the removable dust canister is easy to empty.
The excellent filtration and sealed system make this vacuum a good choice for allergy sufferers; this sealed system permits stronger suction while using less power. The Oreck Touch is good for use on all surfaces, and includes the ability to turn the brush roll off or on. While only basic attachments are included, more can be purchased separately. The HEPA filter is washable, and overall the vacuum requires minimal maintenance. Lastly, Oreck offers a five-year warranty should any issues arise.
