My husband has killed my vax cylinder cleaner, having thrown out a cylindrical bit of the dust tank which vax has quoted 21 pounds to replace. Given that it's also lost a wheel and the cord doesn't reach from one end of the kitchen to the other, I reckon it's time to retire it.
I like the look of Henry - I know Sebo and Miele get good reviews too, but my husband will take some convincing to pay that much and Henry also looks hard to kill.
I did persuade him to buy an ISE washer though...
Your opinions please
