Full-size Cylinder Vacuum Cleaner Engineered for Removing Pet Hair


Rating: ★★★★☆

Being a mum to a small toddler, having a reliable, easy to use vacuum cleaner is a pretty essential item in my household.


On first impressions, I was slightly surprised how heavy this cylinder was. However, I think that is due to the DC32′s impressive motor which enables a more intense suction to your surfaces.

The DC32 has a very stylish design and solid build. It’s a compact machine but it’s certainly packed with some great quality features and accessories.


I felt that the foot operated power cord retractor and on/off switch was a well thought out feature and meant I didn’t have to constantly bend down to use either of these.

Technology explained

It’s cyclone technology meant that it provided incredible suction and the turbine head removed dirt and hair extremely well from all surfaces in my home. These included my lounge rug, floor tiles in the kitchen, wooden floors in the dining room and bathroom and the bedroom carpets. The air-driven brush bar can be turned off for cleaning delicate surfaces too which is a great additional feature.


The mini turbine head meant I could clean confined spaces such as the up the stairs, upholstery and our car interiors. The adjustable wand was really lightweight and meant I could reach high up to clean my wooden bedroom blinds without much effort, although I think the length of the hose could have been a bit longer so I felt that this was a little disappointing.

Another tool provided with this cleaner is an articulating hard floor tool which worked easily over my wooden and tiled surfaces. The long bristles meant it didn’t scratch the wood and picked up any dust and small particles without a problem.

Around the Home

The well designed chassis meant it sat reassuringly firm on my staircase during cleaning, without the worry of it wobbling and falling down.

Great for Allergy Sufferers

One of Dyson’s iconic features is that there is no need for replacement bags or filters as the canister within the design means you can simply detach when full, empty and reattach, saving you money in the long term. The DC32 comes with an inbuilt HEPA (High-Efficiency Particle Air) filter to trap tiny particles as small as 0.1 microns. such as pollen. The air expelled by DC32 Animal contains up to 150 times less bacteria than the air you breathe, which is reassuring if you or anyone in your family suffers from allergies or asthema, for example.


Although the cylinder is meant to be easier to store than an upright,
I did find the DC32 a little bulky in this particular area.

  • Heavier than expected

Overall, I think this is well designed and built vacuum that has some very useful tools for around your home. It performs brilliantly on all surfaces and is very easy to use and maintain. My only reservations would be that the hose appears a little short and it’s slightly on the bulky side to store away easily, as well as a slightly high price tag for a cleaner.
