Having reviewed six or seven vacuums over the past 2 years or so, this family has come to know exactly what they want in a vacuum. Power and lightness. Let’s face it, nobody really loves a vacuum that weighs 70 pounds! We recently had the chance to try the Panasonic Jetforce Vacuum MC-UL427. Its a pretty snazzy purple color which I find to be almost as sassy as me And with the holidays being here and my semester over, I am making my own messes with my baking so having a good vacuum is needed! We also prefer bagless technology and HEPA filters because with 7 people walking around this place can get germy from time to time so its best to trap those tiny triggers!
From out of the box (with just having to attach the handle) it was so quick and easy to get started. I don’t have pets but I do have a mix of carpet and hard floors (and kids). The biggest feature of this particular vacuum that I saw was the Jet Force technology which is meant to create a cyclone of suction from below and from the sides, leading to a better suction –
Some of the other features is a long hose, crevice tool and pet wand, or if you are me with no animals, it makes for a small hand vac, which I used to vacuum my van! But the number one feature for my kids is most definitely the retractable cord!
I really like that it only weighs 15 pounds which means my 4 year old has no problems using it! My husband loves that is has an onboard HEPA filter and also takes no bags! I asked him what he likes about it he says the fact that it is light is good and also seems to have good suction. He is very picky about vacuums so it takes a lot to please him. At least he likes this one.

9X Cyclonic Technology Experience a powerful clean and no loss of suction thanks to the bagless cyclonic system with 9X cyclonic power. This technology utilizes 9 cylinders for multicyclonic dirt separation and cleaner exhaust air.

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Panasonic. I received a product to facilitate my review.
