Bosch vacuum cleaner reviews
In our vacuum reviews, Bosch vacs generally score very well for performance on traditional floorboards and laminate flooring. They also tend to score well for manoeuvrability and ease of emptying
However, some models are quite noisy and scores for picking up pet hair and retaining allergens range from excellent to poor. So if you have allergies or a pet, make sure you use our compare vacuum cleaners tool to find a Bosch vacuum that performs well on these criteria.
As well as testing vacs in our lab, we also survey thousands of vacuum cleaner owners on the reliability of the model they have. You can find out Bosch’s reliability track record by visiting the reliability page in our vacuum reviews.
Bosch vacuums come with a one-year warranty as standard, but you can extend this to two years for free by registering your vacuum. You can do this online, by phone (calling 0844 4810 320) or by post (returning the guarantee card that comes with your vac).
The Bosch vacuums we’ve tested vary in capacity from 1.4 litres to 3.4 litres and weigh from 5.6kg to 9.9kg. See the full specifications of each model in our vacuum cleaner reviews to make sure you choose a vacuum that suits your needs.
