In this review, we’re going to be taking a look at the Tineco A11 Master+ Cordless Stick Vacuum. You are going to learn about its design, as well as the features that it offers.
To start off, this is a stick vacuum. It looks a little bit like an upright vacuum, but it has a thin design that is very lightweight.
With just one hand, you can pick up this vacuum up, and move it around. It is this lack of heft and bulk that serves as one of the most definitive features of this vacuum cleaner.
You can use this stick vacuum in a couple of different ways. If you want a traditional vacuuming experience, you can use the stick vacuum in the same manner that you would use an upright vacuum.
This allows you to push it across your floors, and to vacuum up whatever is on those floors.
If you don’t want to use this stick vacuum in that manner, you can also use it as a handheld vacuum. When you use the handheld feature, you have access to various nozzles and brushrolls, all of which allow you to vacuum whatever is in your path.
One of these nozzles is a very basic nozzle that is designed for dirt and dust. It doesn’t contain a brush, but the nozzle is quite useful, on its own. Then, there is a more advanced brushroll that is designed for removing larger pieces of debris, and sucking those pieces of debris through a larger nozzle.
For a more thorough handheld vacuuming experience, there is a small cleaner head that you can attach to the vacuum, and this allows you to vacuum on upholstery surfaces, as well as carpeting.
If you are using this stick vacuum in its standard mode, where it’s more like an upright vacuum, you can use two different floorheads. The Soft-Roller Floorhead is great for hard floors – such as tile, wood, and stone – and it brushes up dirt and debris, and throws it into the suction pathway.
For thicker surfaces, such as carpets and rugs, there is the Multi-Tasker Floorhead is very useful, because it consists of a brush that can be used to dig into the depths of whatever surface you are vacuuming on, loosening up the dirt and debris that is within whatever thick surface you are vacuuming.
While all of these cleaning modes and attachments are very useful, they wouldn’t be nearly as useful if this stick vacuum lacked suction power. Fortunately, it offers quite a bit of suction power, due to the 120W motor that it relies on.
Using the motor, you’re able to easily and quickly vacuum on just about any surface, and whatever is on that surface will be vacuumed up in a speedy and efficient manner.
Unfortunately, though, the motor isn’t ideal for carpets and rugs that are especially thick. Instead, the motor works best on low-pile carpets and rugs.
This is due to the fact that low-pile carpets and rugs aren’t particularly dense, so dirt and dust isn’t able to be wedged too deeply, making it harder for the stick vacuum to remove it.
When you’re finished vacuuming, you can take the stick vacuum and move it to the garbage can. There, with the press of a button, you can empty out the dustbin that holds all of the dirt and dust that you’ve vacuumed up.
Since this is a fairly small vacuum cleaner, the dustbin is only able to hold 0.6-liters. So, if you’re vacuuming for a longer period of time, you’ll probably need to empty the dustbin out more than once, during a single vacuuming session.
This can be inconvenient, because this stick vacuum doesn’t have the longest battery-life. It’s a cordless stick vacuum, so you’ll be relying on a battery, and this battery is only able to hold a 25-minute charge, which isn’t very long.
There is a second battery that you can use, which does add an extra 25-minutes. That’s not a lot of extra time, but having that extra battery-life is very convenient.
