Best Vacuums for Cleaning Carpet

CR’s take: The Kenmore Elite Pet Friendly 31150 earns a Very Good rating for cleaning carpet and is equally adept at removing pet hair. And it aces our bare-floor test. Emissions are clean, meaning everything it sucks up stays in the vacuum. It’s a bit on the noisy side compared with some of the oth...

I should have upgraded to the current model sooner

I had an older model pf this vacuum for over 15 years and decided to upgrade to the current model. They have fixed so many of the nuisances that I disliked on my older model. It is lighter, self-propelled, more hand tools and places to store them on the upright, and a retractable hose. I wish I had ...

Kenmore Elite 31150 Pet & Allergy Friendly Upright Vacuum REVIEW

I found that it flawlessly picked up everything from fine debris to sand to larger debris of all types here again, the height adjust didn't need to be fiddled with all that much in order to do this, which is much more rare than you might think. In fact, I think it was the best upright vacuum I have tested for hardwood floors that didn't have a soft roller.

I’ve been skeptical of this machine. But I still think the dual motor Kenmore Elite uprights are a great budget vacuum.


A great vacuum at a great price.

Least expensive of the top 3 CR rated vacuums. Great pickup on hardwood and deep pile shag. Heavier than the bagless upright it replaces, but much better with pet-hair and cleaner to boot.

Yes. I would agree. We went to a scratch and dent New appliance store today. Picked up a $3500 kenmore elite for 1500, including delivery. It was an offer we couldn’t refuse.
