I got this little wonder as a gift last Christmas and love it! This stylish vacuum lives easily on my side table; I love the curvy lines that help disguise the function of this piece. I find the suction is adequate for my needs, but I'm picking up stray crumbs rather than balls of pet hair which makes a difference. I've had no problems with this vacuum holding a charge, and it definitely out-performs dust-busters I've had in the past. This vacuum has a great addition to my cleaning arsenal and saves me the hassle of wrestling out the full-sized vacuum for smaller messes. High recommended!

With its sinuous curves and elegant keyhole-shaped vents, Dirt Devil's Kurv looks more like a space-age vase than a household cleaning product. And while it picks up crumbs, dust, and spills just as well as your averagely ugly cordless handheld vacuum, the machine's aesthetics are its major drawing card. Created by renowned industrial designer Karim Rashid, the Kurv is stylish enough to leave out on the counter or coffeetable, where it's more likely to come into play sooner--before the Cheerios are ground into the Karastan, in other words, or just as the last-minute guests are due to arrive. The cordless design plugs into a charging base for storage, so the unit is always ready to go, and the dirt cup simply twists off to empty, sparing users the hassle and expense of disposable bags. Weighing in at just two pounds, the Kurv also features a replaceable filter and a soft tip, to protect delicate surfaces like hardwood floors or antique furniture. It comes backed by a limited three-year warranty.--Mary Park
