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 kind of vacuum that will be dependable for years to come. This powerful 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 vacuuming power. 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 workout when tackling stairs or the entire house, but the 30-foot cord is reasonably long and there’s also an LED headlight to illuminate your path. The removable dust canister is easy to empty, while the excellent filtration and sealed system make this vacuum a good choice for allergy sufferers. The use of this sealed system also allows the vacuum to offer stronger suction with less amps.
The Oreck Touch is good on all surfaces, and includes the ability to turn the brush roll off or on. Only basic attachments are included, but more can be purchased separately. The HEPA filter is washable, and overall the vacuum requires minimal maintenance. Oreck offers a five year warranty should any issues arise.
