TheWireCutter.com chose the Black + Decker MAX Flex vacuum as one of the top 3 vacuums for 2017 and for good reason. This ultra-compact machine makes quick work of your toughest messes, including pet hair and (everyone’s bane) glitter. A convenient extension hose lets you tackle cleaning projects from floor to ceiling while a rechargeable 20V Max battery means you won’t have to stop until the job is done. GroomAndStyle.com liked the Flex’s assortment of accessories. We love its fast charging times because, let’s face it, no one likes to wait, especially to clean. ConsumerSearch.com cites storability as a reason to consider this heavy-duty machine, which fits nicely in a cabinet or on a shelf.
At $129, the Black + Decker BDH2020FLFH isn’t a cheap handheld vacuum but each of those dollars reflects its power and functionality; this is the vac for you if you have kids and pets but don’t want to live like it.
