Oreck Vacuum Review and Giveaway!!!

THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED!

Thanks so much to all of you who entered! Read below to find out who our winner is!

We used random generator to choose our lucky winner and she is..  Alex Anna-Marie Struble with this comment…

Holy cow this is a fantastic vacuum! AND it comes with 3 yearly tune ups?!  I would love to have this vacuum instead of my inlaws ancient hand-me-down that reeks of wet dog every time I vacuum.  I bet the Magnesium’s HEPA filter would never have that problem.

We have emailed you with details!  Thanks again!

That’s right guys!  We get to give one Shanty reader TWO Oreck Vacuum Cleaners!!!

I was so pumped when I was recently asked to try out the Oreck Magnesium and the Oreck Ultimate Handheld Vac.  My vacuum cleaner is one of my most used ‘power tools’!

This is the Oreck Magnesium Vacuum Cleaner!  There are SO many things I love about this “little” guy!

First off… It weighs in at a whopping 7.7 lbs.  Seriously.  It is amazing how easy it is to push the Magnesium through the entire house.  It’s so light that the baby even took her turn at it (and threw a huge fit when I took it away)!

Another feature of this vacuum cleaner that I love is the ability to move onto different types of flooring without doing a thing!  I have carpet, stained concrete and tile flooring.  The Magnesium easily cleans them all without having to make a single adjustment!

I also love that it has 2 different speed options.  By pushing the little power button on the back, you can easily switch to the slower speed and clean your rugs without the vacuum eating them.  LOVE.

The Magnesium has a long cord which I found super helpful!  I am constantly having to move sockets with my other vacuum, so that was a fun little perk.  I also love this little swiveling hook thing (pretty sure that’s the technical term) that holds the cord by the handle.  So smart!  I have to hold the cord on my other vacuum.

I also love the design of the handle.  It was easy to hold and it’s longer than I’m used to!

Let’s talk about the bag!  First… I will never go bagless.  I don’t want to have to look at what I just sucked off the floor!  Look how easy it is to change the bag on the Oreck Magnesium!  Just unzip that baby and pull it out!

And finally my favorite feature… This vacuum left nothing on the floor!  It’s amazing to me that it can pack this much power in under 8 lbs!  I am literally in LOVE.

And then there is the Ultimate Handheld Vac… Holy wow.

This little guy is a mommy’s best friend!

First… Everything you see comes in one box… Woohoo! Love all the attachments!

The cord easily wraps around the bottom and it all stores away like this.

I am so used to lugging my other heavy vacuum cleaner around the house as I do my my baseboards and stairs.  You can actually carry this vacuum around like a purse or diaper bag and get it done!  My kids say it looks like a jet pack, and I would say it’s just about as cool ;-)!

The tube easily extends and locks into place wherever you want it to.  Seriously?  Love it.

This vacuum also uses a bag… Woohoo!  It’s so easy to change too!

So… What do you think?  Can you tell I am in LOVE??  I can honestly say I never knew what I was missing out on.  I will never use another brand again.  Thank you Oreck for being so awesome!

Who wants to win BOTH???  We will give 1 very lucky Shanty reader BOTH vacuum cleaners!

    Well, this is so perfect! 😀 My vacuum just blew up yesterday, and I was wondering how and if I could get a new one! I will cross my fingers. I did find out that the Magnesium has large high-performance rear wheels with cylindrical wheel bearings that give it maneuverability. Perfect for me with our cape full of kids and stuff! Thanks for the chance to win these fabulous vacuums!

    Love that it is only 7.7lbs! With 3 dogs I am constantly pulling out the vacuum and would love to have a light easy to grab machine! Such as sleek design too! Love that it also is usable on hardwoods and carpet, win win!

    This vaccuum is pretty amazing!! I read on the website that it is the most powerful vacuum and that it’s different levels are very effective for going from carpet to hardwood (this is SUCH a huge plus!) I hope I win! Yay!

    I love the Magnesium description! It’ everything I need, especially the going flat thing for getting under furniture, I’m so tired of having to move furniture out of the way.



  20. Debbie Fox on July 18, 2012 at 9:13 am

    This seems like an amazing vacuum cleaner. A lot of power, but also will not damage expensive rugs. I hope to win one. Thanks.
