Take Our Word For It
How many prototypes does it take to create the perfect vacuum cleaner? The answer is 5,127, in the case of the first Dyson vacuum. Dyson products might be top-of-the-line expensive — but ask any Dyson customer you know, and they’ll likely tell you: It’s worth it.
The super-sucking, ultra-light vacuum cleaners, shockingly easy-to-use hair dryers, and powerful air purifiers are all best-in-class products created by industry-leading engineers to actually deliver the results they promise. We spoke with one of the experts behind Dyson’s precision products, Senior Design Engineer Ollie Toogood, to learn more about why the Dyson brand has earned its rightful place as a household name.
“Our business is built from our desire to solve the problems others ignore,” Toogood tells PEOPLE. “We design, test, and iterate every aspect of our machines, including the sub-components, to ensure they work efficiently and effectively.”
That attention to detail has evidently paid off, according to shoppers and superfans who laud the brand’s hairdryers and vacuum cleaners as “life-changing.” True, the high-quality products and thoughtful engineering come with a lofty price tag, but as a former skeptic myself, I can attest that Dyson’s products are truly unlike anything else on the market.
While we can’t promise that a Dyson vacuum cleaner will change your life, we can tell you about the products that we feel are worth your investment.
Dyson Special Edition Airwrap Multi-Styler Complete Long
Gorgeous waves are minutes — no, not hours, minutes — away when you have the Dyson Airwrap in hand. This blow dryer has (literally) blown me away, with two smoothing brush attachments and two different curling barrel heads in varying thicknesses to create the bouncy blowout that has historically only been possible at the hands of a professional.
The Coanda blowdrying base is powered by a Dyson digital motor V9, which creates an uber-powerful stream of air pressure that attracts the hair to each styling barrel using less heat than traditional hair dryers. Less heat equals less damage, which is always a win in our book. The powerful blast of air also cuts down on drying time, and a blowout that usually takes no less than 35 minutes of arm-tiring work for me was achieved in just 15 minutes.
If you’re questioning whether this hair dryer is really so different from other less expensive options on the market, the answer is a resounding yes. The included attachment heads turn one blow drier into a curler, straightener, and volume-giver, and if you’re someone who regularly uses multiple cumbersome tools to do your ‘do, the price for a Dyson Airwrap doesn’t seem quite as lofty.

Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer
View on Sephora View On Amazon View On Target
Designed for all hair types, the Dyson Supersonic is an all-star hair dryer that comes with a magnetic diffusing head, smoothing nozzle, and styling concentrator attachment to style your hair however you please. It’s super lightweight to make DIY blowouts a breeze and dries hair safely in record time, which is why the Supersonic won a spot on our list of Best Hairdryers.
Three precision speed settings allow you to choose the airflow that works best for your hair type and texture, and the four heat setting options range from a cool blast of air to a 212-degree fast-drying heat mode. During our lab trials, our tester reported that their hair dried after just five minutes of using this speedy dryer. The Supersonic was engineered to protect hair from heat damage, thanks to intelligent heat control, and leave hair up to 132% smoother, according to the brand. With this super-powered dryer, the proof is in the gorgeous, fresh-from-the-salon style you can achieve at home.

Dyson V15 Detect Cordless Vacuum Cleaner
View On Amazon View On Target View On Wayfair
Dusty corners and stubborn pet hair are no match for this ultra-high-tech, top-of-the-line vacuum. The Dyson V15 Detect vacuum comes with two high-tech heads: a slim, soft cleaning head that reveals microscopic dust you’d otherwise miss on hardwood floors and an all-purpose digital motor bar head with antitangle comb bristles to easily suck up debris and pet hair.
The super-sucking V15 Detect is described as “Dyson’s most powerful, most intelligent cordless vacuum” — and Toogood, agrees. “I’m slightly biased since I was involved in the development of this machine, but I think the V15 Detect is truly revolutionary in the evolution of intelligent cord-free vacuums,” he says.
This powerful sucker also comes with a crevice tool and mini dusting brush to leave your floors cleaner than they’ve ever been before — and the built-in LCD screen that visually depicts the amount of dirt you’ve sucked up proves it. Plus, with 60-minute battery life, you can clean the whole house in one go.

Dyson Purifier Humidify+Cool Formaldehyde PH04
View On Amazon View On Walmart View On Best Buy
This air purifier is literally a breath of fresh air. With integrated air-quality sensors that automatically catch and trap pollutants, the Dyson Purifier Humidify + Cool cleans, cools, and moistens air to the ideal levels. Plus, the added formaldehyde filtration constantly captures and removes potentially dangerous formaldehyde that can be emitted by wood flooring and fabric over time.
We love that this device’s LCD screen provides a visual peace of mind that your air is pollutant-free and clean enough to breathe easy (pun intended). While this is a pricey air purifier compared to many on the market, keep in mind that this one from Dyson also does the job of a humidifier and a fan.

Dyson Pet Grooming Kit
Just when you thought your Dyson vacuum couldn’t get any better, this pet grooming attachment kit hit the scene to help you to brush and clean your pet with shocking ease. The angled, slicker bristle head works to detangle medium to long-haired dog fur. Once you’re finished brushing your pooch, just lift your thumb off the top button to retract the bristles and suck all that hair and dirt into the bin. It’s worth noting that this attachment may be too large for small dogs, but it’s a game-changer for larger breeds like golden retrievers or Australian shepherds.
The pet grooming kit was specially designed to be quieter and less alarming for your furry friend, but you can also turn the vacuum off while you groom and switch it back on once the brush is full and you’ve stepped away from your pet. This handy dandy kit comes with an angled bristle brush head and an extension hose for the comfortable grooming experience your pup deserves.

Dyson Corrale Hair Straightener
View On Amazon View On Nordstrom View On Sephora
The Dyson Corrale is so much more than just a hair straightener — it can also help you easily achieve bouncy curls or tousled beach waves that would rival any ’00s bombshell. The best part? You can do all of this with up to 30 minutes of cord-free styling. Just place the Corrale in its handy charging dock in between use to extend the run time.
With intelligent heat control that responds to your hair texture and thickness and automatically adjusts the temperature for optimal results, this might just be the smartest straightener you’ll ever try. The three precise heat settings give you control over how hot your tool gets. And, unlike most straighteners with two standard plates that squeeze the hair, the Coralle uses flexing plates that gather the hair and adapt to its thickness with 15 micro-hinged segments to smooth the hair with less breakage, fly-aways, and frizz.

Dyson V8 Absolute Cordless Stick Vacuum Cleaner
View On Amazon View On Dyson.com
The Dyson V8 Absolute is a classic, reliable, and slightly more affordable option among the lineup of Dyson cordless vacuums. The super-suction V8 motor powers this vacuum to slurp up dirt, dust, and debris from hardwood floors and carpets with ease. Customers rave about the low-profile vacuum’s ability to snake through hard-to-reach places that most bulky vacs miss. Plus, the Dyson V8 Absolute is so light you can even lift it up to use on shelves and ceiling fans.
This small but mighty vacuum can transform into an even tinier tool with the click of a button, leaving you with the perfectly sized device to clean car interiors, pet beds, or any other surface that could use a little TLC. We love how multi-use this vacuum can be, and the extra heads included with purchase from Dyson.com make this cordless vac a treat to use.

Dyson Omni-Glide+ Vacuum
View On Amazon View On Target View On Walmart
This flexible, easy-to-maneuver Dyson vacuum deserves an Olympic gold medal for its floor gymnastics. Engineered to easily snake around hardwood floors, the Dyson Omni-glide has wheels that rotate 360 degrees and a fluid neck joint that allows you to angle the vacuum handle straight on the ground for the ultimate under-the-furniture reach.
«I am the terrible upstairs neighbor that vacuums every single day because the Omni-Glide is so fun to use,” shares PEOPLE editor Erin Johnson. “And honestly, it’s pretty quiet, so I don’t feel that bad for my downstairs neighbor. This vacuum truly glides across the floor, and the double soft rollers on the head suck up pet hair, dust, and whatever else is secretly lurking on my hardwood floors.”
The Omni-Glide is smaller than your average vacuum cleaner, but that doesn’t equate to any compromise in the signature Dyson sucking power. This cute cleaner also comes with a docking station, charger, and attachable crevice tool to make it easier to achieve the spotless floors of your dream.

Frequently Asked Questions
What makes Dyson vacuums different from others on the market?
In short, the attention to detail. “Behind every Dyson machine, there are years of development, with often hundreds of engineers working on multiple prototypes (5,127, in the case of the first Dyson vacuum, DC01), and rigorous testing to ensure the longevity of our machine,” says Toogood. “This dedication to pioneering innovation is what sets Dyson, and its technology, apart.”
What is the best Dyson vacuum?
The best Dyson vacuum for you depends on your personal needs — how large is the space you’re trying to clean? Do you prefer a cordless or an upright vacuum? And while every Dyson vacuum has impressive cleaning power, the V15 Detect Cordless Vacuum has all the high-tech bells and whistles you could ever need while still being lightweight and easily maneuverable. Toogood worked on the development of the V15 and tells PEOPLE, “I think the V15 Detect is truly revolutionary in the evolution of intelligent cord-free vacuums.” The high efficiency, battery-saving performance, and super high-tech dust detection features are just two of the factors that make the V15 leagues above the rest.
How long does a Dyson vacuum last?
To keep your Dyson vacuum in tip-top condition, the brand recommends a few tips for maintaining the battery: Use the high power mode less, avoid using your vacuum in extreme temperatures, and let the battery run down to empty at least once a month before recharging. Dyson also offers a two-year warranty on all cordless machines and parts, including the battery.
