Dyson V11 Animal+ Cordless Stick Vacuum Review

When it comes to stick vacuum cleaners, Dyson is easily one of the best manufacturers around. And, the reason for this is because Dyson invests a great deal of time and energy into delivering a stick vacuum that offers a beautiful and easy-to-use design, as well as a vacuum cleaner that offers plenty of power and efficiency.

When you first take this stick vacuum out of the box, what you’ll notice is that it has a beautiful design. Everything is very clean, concise, and neat, and there is nothing confusing or difficult about the design. Instead, everything looks great.

More importantly, though, everything feels great, too. Picking this stick vacuum up and moving it around feels good, due to the high-quality design, and there is no discomfort or annoyance when using this stick vacuum.

As a product of the excellent design and the fantastic quality of the whole product, this is a very easy-to-use stick vacuum, and this ease of use contributes to a pleasant and enjoyable vacuuming experience.

Naturally, this convenience and ease-of-use is only one part of the overall vacuum. Not only is it well-designed and convenient, but it also offers a tremendous amount of power and efficiency, especially when compared to other stick vacuums, many of which are far less powerful than this one.

While using this stick vacuum, you’ll be relying on the High-Torque Cleaner Head. With this cleaner head, you are able to easily vacuum on hard and soft floors.

For hard floors, it’s very easy for you to vacuum up all of the dirt and dust that is on those floors, due to the way that the High-Torque Cleaner Head is able to gather the dirt and dust from off of those floors.

Not only that, this High-Torque Cleaner Head works exceptionally well on carpets and rugs, as well.

While the High-Torque Cleaner Head is moving across the carpets and rugs within your home, the nylon bristles that are on the cleaner head dive into the depths of the carpet/rug that you’re vacuuming, and they loosen up and gather the dirt and dust that’s within the surface. Then, they pull that gunk up and push it straight into the vacuum cleaner, allowing for an almost effortless vacuuming experience.

The same process applies to vacuuming on hard floors, as well, although those floors don’t require the bristles to dive into the depths of the surface.

What’s really nice, though, is that you don’t have to use just the High-Torque Cleaner Head. Instead, you are also capable of using a variety of different tools that Dyson has included.

These are tools such as the Mini-Motorized Tool, Crevice Tool, Mattress Tool, and Combination Tool; among various others. With these different cleaning tools, it’s very easy for you to vacuum on all kinds of different surfaces and areas, removing the dirt and dust that is found on those surfaces and within those areas.

Since you have access to those tools, you can easily use this stick vacuum as a handheld vacuum. Just remove the High-Torque Cleaner Head, and then you can attach a different tool or remove the wand, allowing this stick vacuum to become a handheld vacuum, which is great for vacuuming in tight and narrow spaces, or for when you need more mobility.

Two of the coolest features that this stick vacuum offers have to do with the suction power that this stick vacuum offers. While using the High-Torque Cleaner Head, the vacuum is able to sense when you move onto a carpet or a hard floor.

Using the Dynamic Load Sensor System, the vacuum cleaner adjusts the amount of suction that is being used.

But, the other cool feature is that on the handle of this stick vacuum, you have access to different suction modes.

These are suction modes such as “Eco Mode” and “Boost Mode”, as well as “Auto Mode”. Having access to these modes makes it easy to tailor the vacuuming process to your needs.


Ultimately, the Dyson V11 Animal+ Cordless Stick Vacuum is a truly excellent stick vacuum that offers the best of the best, in terms of convenience and efficiency.

With that being said, it’s very expensive, so make sure to keep that in mind.
