Here at Kitchn, we strongly believe that everyone needs two vacuums: an upright one that can do all the heavy-hitting, deep-cleaning jobs, and a smaller stick or handheld option that can easily be pulled out to clean up spills and random messes. This smaller one needs to be convenient (the whole point is that you can grab it in a pinch without much or any effort). Which bring us to this BLACK+DECKER Handheld Vacuum.

It comes with a lithium battery that can hold a charge for up to 18 months (so that it’s always ready to go when you need it!) and has all sorts of smart features including a rotating nozzle, a built-in flip-up brush, and a telescoping crevice tool. And it’s the bestselling handheld vacuum on all of Amazon, with more than 28,000 five-star reviews. Even more, many of these reviews are hundreds of words long and lots of satisfied shoppers come back years later to leave updates that are just as glowing as the previous remarks. That’s pretty impressive for a vacuum! (Have you ever left a review for a vacuum?) Let’s take a look and see what some people have had to say.

“I have wood floors through most of my house. I don’t have pets, but I have long hair and lose a lot of it! I also have a messy son. I was looking for something to help clean up my hair and the many dust bunnies that seem to accumulate in my home office, as well as quick clean up other messes, like crumbs from the kitchen floor after snacks and meals. I’m one of those people who overthink everything and read tons of reviews before buying anything, regardless of the price. If you’re like me, let me save you some time … buy this vacuum!”

“This is ridiculously amazing. I didn’t know a handheld vacuum this good existed. I spilled a whole bottle of pepper in a pull-out spice cabinet and had no clue how I would ever get it all out from back in the molding … this little guy saved the day. I’ve been using it to dust blinds, the car, drawers, window ledges. It’s seriously an incredible amount of sucking power. Stays charged long enough for any of the small jobs I’ve had. I’ve not tested it long enough to see how long it stays charged. Even if this little guy doesn’t last but a couple months I would repurchase. It’s THAT good.”

“This vacuum is EVERYTHING! The suction is incredibly powerful for a little cordless handheld vacuum. I’ve owned many in the past and can say that this alleviates many of the problems that give cordless vacuums a bad reputation. For one thing it holds its charge for longer and maintains its suction power until the very end rather than fizzling out after a few minutes like the cheaper ones. It also has a more useful thin extendable nozzle for reaching into small crevices, an ideal feature when you’re trying to clean your car interior. I also like that the brush is permanently attached to the nozzle (you can just swing it back if you don’t want to use it). I often lose attachments so it’s useful for me.”
