Dirt Devil Reach #review

On hearing that my hoover aka the Useless-Machine had blown up on me, the lovelies from Dirt Devil offered to send me a new hoover in exchange for a review.

When the hoover arrived (I wasn’t 100% sure which one would be coming) I was worried to find it wasn’t an upright but a small cylinder vacuum. I’ve had many of these before and to be honest haven’t found them the best when it comes to picking up. This assumption was my first mistake. The Reach (model DCC038) with it’s 2200 watts of sucking power really packs a punch. She may be small but she’s strong! I was very pleasantly surprised!


The Reach comes with: 

  • High power cylinder
  • Metalic telespcopic tool
  • accessory holder
  • crevice nozzle
  • upholstery brush
  • dusting brush
  • intense turbo brush
  • 4 in one stretch hose (5m)
  • carpet floor brush
  • user guide
  • care guide
The clever technical stuff!
This nifty machine comes with a Microban extra hygiene filter and high grade HEPA filtration. In short, it has built in antibacterial protection for an extra level of hygiene when you are cleaning. Microban is a pretty big deal in halting bacteria. More information on Microban and how Dirt Devil work with them to ensure our homes are as clean as they can be, can be found here (it’s worth a look at, interesting stuff!).
My personal opinion of the Reach is that it is perfect for a family home. Despite looking compact it has a total capacity of 3 litres, great suction and is light and easy to manoeuvre around your home.
Easy to store, easy to use (even on stairs and thanks to the easily accessible tools, and for all the places that collect dust and dirt), The Reach gets a 5/5 from us. The turbo brush which is ideal for pet hair does what no hoover tool has ever managed before… it easily cleans up our suite which has goose feather cushions (so gets very bitty and dusty very quickly!).
