Review & Giveaway: Eureka Endeavor NLS Vacuum

by Jenn @ Frugal Upstate on October 3, 2011

This week the folks at Eureka gave me the chance to review one of their new Eureka Endeavor NLS (Never Loses Suction) vacuum cleaners.  Not only that-but they offered me one to give away to a lucky reader!  How’s that for a deal?

The Eureka Endeavor NLS is a 16.75 lb, 12 amp vacuum that retails for $79.88 at Walmart (or Walmart.com). The unit is a bagless upright and includes an Arm & Hammer HEPA flter that captures 99,97% of allergens and pet dander while eliminating odors. The HEPA filter should be replaced every 6 months

I didn’t have to assemble the unit, as it was sent to me fully assembled (I’ve put together Eureka products before-they are usually pretty simple).  After taking it out of the box I gave it a test run on my living room rugs and then tried out the PET Power Paw attachment on my stairs.  The vacuum moved easily and picked up debris and dirt well.

To empty the dirt from the bagless canister you simply push a button and remove the canister, hold it over your trash can and gently flip the catch on the bottom of the canister.  The entire bottom of the canister pops open and the dirt falls into the can.

Here the canister is open-before I started vacuuming ;)

Here the canister is dumping dirt into the trash after vacuuming. Boy, did my floors need that!

I love that feature-it makes it so much easier to clean the can.  The latch on the unit both on the bottom of the canister and a the top of the canister where you can take it apart for cleaning are both made of a single molded piece of plastic-which means you are relying on the “give” of the plastic when you snap it open.

Pers0nally I'd prefer to see an actual jointed piece there-we at the Frugal Upstate household are rather hard on things and I would worry that eventually that piece may snap with rough use. However considering the price of the unit ($79.88) and the cleaning power I can accept the single piece construction.The directions for washing it are right on the canister

Speaking of taking apart the canister-that’s another thing I love about this style of bagless vacuum that Eureka makes-the entire canister comes apart and every piece of it, including the filter (although not the HEPA filter down below) are meant to be rinsed out and reused.  I think this keeps the vacuum much cleaner.

Hmm. This came out a bit blurry. . .

I also tried out the PET Power Paw attachment.  Those looks pretty much like your standard “power” attachment, but it has small plastic notches and a rubber strip that are supposed to help grab pet hair from upholstery, curtains and shades.  Since our dog Summer isn’t allowed up on the furniture or on the stairs I didn’t really get to test that part of it-the normal vacuum is what picked up most of her hair.  However I though the brush did a fine job and seemed to have good suction on the stairs.
