The Electrolux Ergorapido vacuum has a futuristic style that’s actually quite fashionable. Of course, style isn’t everything as I’m sure you know. In this review of the Electrolux Ergorapido vacuum cleaner, I’ll go over this model’s highlights and lowlights – then I’ll give an overall recommendation. As I mentioned, this model has a futuristic look to it, which is one of those things where you either love the look or hate it. Here’s a rundown of features you’ll find on this unit: it’s cordless, converts to handheld, it has a 10.8 inch cleaning path, has 2 speed cycles, and works on all types of floors. Since it only weighs 5.7 lbs, it’s easy enough to take up and down stairs.
Now I’ll go over the negative aspects of owning the Electrolux Ergorapido vacuum. While this machine is fairly powerful, it still doesn’t have the power to suck up larger crumbs on the floor, and also doesn’t do great on large rugs. There is about an inch on both sides of the head that doesn’t suck up anything – which gives it more like a 9 inch cleaning path. Another issue is that this thing only lasts for 20 minutes, if you’re lucky. This is very common with stick vacuums though, so I won’t hold it against the Electrolux Ergorapido in particular. Lastly, don’t expect it to pick up pet hair – because it doesn’t like that. The $99 price tag is a little more expensive than most competitor units. As far as stick models go, this is one of the best ones out there. However, I’m not entirely sold on it overall. I’d have to give this model a 3.8 / 5 star rating.
