Versatility meets Maneuverability in the New Oreck Edge (Review & Giveaway)

Oreck LogoAs Mothers (and Fathers, too!), cleaning is a part of our everyday life. In my case, from the time I get up in the morning until the time I go to bed, I seem to be cleaning something consistently. Luckily for us, companies are producing products that not only make dreaded daily tasks more tolerable, some of the products even make cleaning somewhat enjoyable.
Oreck EdgeJust take the all new Oreck Edge Vacuum for example. It is powerful, versatile and very convenient (a mother’s dream, right?). The Oreck Edge features all of the bells and whistles you would expect from a Oreck vacuum and a few pleasant surprises that will make you love it that much more.

Recently, I was given the chance to try out the all new Oreck Edge for myself and to discover what makes this vacuum so special. The first thing I learned, the Oreck Edge comes with not one, but two vacuums! Yeah, as in a powerful upright AND a convenient handheld vac!

Oreck Edge Features:
Oreck Versa-GlideVersa-Glide True Floating Head – Forget about flipping switches when you change from high-pile carpet to low-pile! The Oreck Edge comes equipped with Versa-Glide technology that automatically adjusts cleaning action as the vacuum goes from surface to surface.

Variable Speed Control – The Oreck Edge Upright vacuum features two speeds, high and low, for all of your cleaning needs. Use the high speed setting on carpets and tougher messes and dial it down to low for bare floors and more delicate surfaces.
HEPA Quality Filter System – For allergen control, the HEPA Filtration system in the Oreck Edge traps up to 99.9 percent of dust and allergens, leaving your home with fewer dust bunnies and less pet hair.
On-board Tools for Quick Pickups – The Oreck Edge Upright features an on-board Light Duty Quickwand that is effective at cleaning above the floor. To use, simply turn the vacuum on, put the vac and its handle in a still, upright position, and suction will be automatically transferred to the Quickwand!

In addition, the mobile handheld vac features many different cleaning attachments that are all stored neatly on-board. The handheld’s attachments are perfect for picking up messes on the stairs, under furniture and even in the car.

Other Features: Long-lasting Endurolife Belt, Hypo-allergenic disposable inner vacuum bag, Weighs 13 lbs., 30 ft. cord, Quietest Oreck Upright ever, Most powerful Oreck Upright to date

My take on the Oreck Edge:

The two-unit system arrived mostly assembled and the only thing that had to be done was attaching the handle on the Upright vacuum. However, when we attached the handle, I encountered one of my only problems with the upright – the handle is a bit tall for my liking. Okay, so I am on the short side (5′ 4″), but the handle almost comes up to my chest. (It seems to be the perfect height for my husband (who is 6′), though.) However, when the vacuum is in the reclined position, the height doesn’t seem to be a factor.

When I first turned the Oreck Edge Upright on, I was really surprised at how powerful it was. The suction power literally pulls the vacuum across the floor and leaves a wonderfully clean strip behind it. I am loving this for sure! No more having to go over the carpet twice because it didn’t get clean the first time!

Not only is the Light Duty Quickwand a terrific feature, but the fact that you just turn the vacuum on and its ready to go is wonderful! No more having to attach hoses or tools to the vacuum! Also, the fact that the Quickwand extends for extra length is great! I can easily clean the baseboards and windows without having to bend down or stand on something.

OK, so I have something to admit…the Oreck Edge Upright is truly wonderful, but the handheld vac is simply amazing! It is powerful, versatile and great at cleaning under furniture. I love to put the floor attachment on the handheld unit and go to town cleaning under the edge of the couch, down the halls and under my desk. I love that the handheld vac fits right on your shoulder so you are literally limitless on where you can take it. And the fact that all the tools are on-board with you is terrific! The Oreck Edge two-unit system really allows you to clean anything anywhere!

Buy It: You can purchase the Oreck Edge from the Oreck website for $799.95. However, it is currently on-sale for $699.95 + free shipping!
