Electrolux has long been a household name for over 90 years. They are leaders in creating innovative household appliances and my family has used them for decades. Their goal is to improve the quality of our lives with meaningful and cutting-edge products.
One of Electrolux’s newer ingenious products is the Ergorapido 2–in-1 with BrushRollClean Technology. If you are a pet owner like me, you vacuum pretty much every day. You may also have had to deal with the pet hair getting entwined and tangled in the vacuum’s roller. The pet hair clogs up the roller and the only way to get rid of it is to cut it off with very sharp scissors. This is a little frustrating and time consuming, not to mention that sometimes my big vacuum can get a little hot.
Make way for the efficient BrushRollClean revolutionary technology incorporated in this dynamic little upright. The Ergorapido 2-in-1 is one of the simplest, easiest and versatile vacuums I’ve used. The first thing you will notice is how lightweight this vacuum is. There is no pain for strain pushing this little darling around. Another great feature is there are no bags to worry about. It contains a dust cup that you simply clean out after each use. This cuts down on waste and expense. Big plus!
Another fabulous feature is this vacuum is cordless. In the past, I have vacuumed over my vacuum cord damaging it. Cords are cumbersome and I’m also constantly moving it to get it out-of-the-way which impedes my workflow, my cleaning groove. Many times I have to unplug and replug it in a different outlet because the cord only goes so far. I’ve also tripped over my cord so they can be somewhat hazardous. Having this cordless vacuum gives you so much more freedom. I absolutely love this feature.
The vacuum sits/rests on a charging station that can be left on the floor or mounted on the wall. There is a blue indicator light below the off/on switch that will flash when the vacuum is fully charged. It runs on 12 Volts of power and there are two speeds, low and high. I found if I have the vacuum on high-speed it will last for about 20 – 25 minutes and about 15 minutes longer on low-speed. So it gives you plenty of time to spruce up your home quickly. You will have to put the vacuum on the recharging station after each use to keep its power up to snuff.
One of the best features is the BrushRollClean technology. After you vacuum you step on the BrushRollClean button for no more than 30 seconds. This action starts a process where a little blade cleans the hair off the roller brush. The hairs are cut and sucked up into the dust cup. This is great for pet hair but if you have thicker fibers or wire you will have to remove roller, which comes out very easily, to clean it off. The brushroll head also swivels making it more user-friendly to get in corners. It worked really well on rugs and fabulous on floors. The different surfaces didn’t seem to affect its suction.
The Ergorapido also comes with a detachable handheld vacuum which is part of the main body. There are two buttons located next to the 2-in-1 arrow indicators. You press the two buttons together and the handheld is released. It comes with two attachments that are used for upholstery and drapes. It’s also great for getting into nooks and crannies making it very versatile. We’ve also used it to clean the interior of your vehicles where it sucked up debris and lots of Cheerios easily.
Other attributes I really like about the Ergorapido 2-in-1 is the height. I’m a tall gal and I don’t like bending while vacuuming. It’s tall enough for my frame yet it’s compact enough to tuck away in a corner when I’m finished with it. All in all, we give it a thumbs up!!
