Dyson doesn’t want you to think of its latest vacuum as just another cleaner in the market, but rather, as an appliance that hosts the latest technology. And why shouldn’t it? The company’s pumped S$15 million into the research and development of this unit.
Dyson’s pulled the wrappers off its Cinetic vacuum cleaner in Singapore, and it’s one that claims not to lose suction. How you ask? It uses patented Dyson Cinetic cyclone technology that enables it to go without the need for bags as well as any filter fuss.
According to Dyson, this is the first such vacuum cleaner that gives you one less thing to worry about – the maintenance of the filter. It needs no washing or regular replacement as its Cinetic cyclones technology uses a few cylinders that oscillate at high speeds to prevent the cyclone aperture from clogging.
Standing out from the crowd
“Getting rid of bags [in 1993] solved the frustration of my vacuum cleaner losing suction. But washing filters – or worse- buying them [has been] a nuisance,” Dyson founder, James Dyson, said.
It also went through some pretty harsh treatment in the assessment of its durability. From being slammed sideways into steel blocks 200 times to having engineers run it for 9000 hours, the Cinetic had to brave these harsh experiments before Dyson declared it good to go (not that we’d advise you to try this at home).
You can get your hands on the Dyson Cinetic now for S$1299, together with a five-year labour and parts guarantee.
If you feel that this unit comes with a heavy price tag, Dyson’s also made available its DC Turbinehead Complete for S$1199 and the DC63 Turbinehead for S$1049, although the price difference isn’t that stark.
