Win a Panasonic MC-UL915 Jetspin Cyclone (read: Powerful Vacuum!)

by Janice

As much as we may wish it weren’t true, life requires a lot of vacuuming — especially if you are living life with kids!

I marvel at how quickly my floors can go from clean to “Get out the vacuum STAT!”

But the one thing I LOVE about vacuuming is it can instantly make my whole house look SO much better.

The key is to have a vacuum that does the work with as little effort from me as possible.

My experience with the Panasonic MC-UL915 Jetspin Cyclone:

When I tested out the Panasonic MC-UL915 Jetspin Cyclone I was very pleased at how easily it did the job!

The vacuum seems to propel itself forward and I don’t have to put any work into pushing it. It glides around with me doing little more than steering.

It also has powerful suction and I don’t find myself having to go over the same dirt again and again trying to get it to pick it all up. Its fantastic suction definitely cuts down my vacuuming time.

As for maneuverability, the vacuum isn’t too heavy and moves quite well around furniture. But it is large so, of course, I do have to use the accompanying attachments to get into tighter areas.

The big test for me is if a vacuum can pick up my dog’s hair off the furniture. AJ has short, fine hair and it makes me crazy when I see it all over my couch!

The Air Turbine Brush does quite a good job removing the pet hair, although I do have to put in serious effort. And since the brush isn’t very wide, it takes awhile to clean the entire couch.

The Panasonic MC-UL915 Jetspin Cyclone features a “Dirt Sensor” which is supposed to turn from red to green when the floor is clean. However, I have yet to see my vacuum read “dirty.”

Either my floors are very clean all the time, (I disagree,) or they developed this sensor on some serious dirt. If I listened to the dirt sensor, I wouldn’t be vacuuming my house! So, I find the “Dirt Sensor” doesn’t tell me anything. But that doesn’t bother me.

I like that this vacuum is bagless because I hate buying bags and never have them on hand when I need them! And it is great bonus that the dirt cup can be disassembled and washed.

Also, I am very happy that the Panasonic MC-UL915 Jetspin Cyclone features a HEPA Exhaust Filter, which captures particles such as allergens, irritants and pollutants.

Panasonic MC-UL915 Jetspin Cyclone Features:

  • Dirt sensor eliminates guesswork – display turns from red to green when floor is clean
  • Unlike competitor models, the dirt cup can be disassembled and washed, eliminating pet odors
  • Four onboard tools including Air Turbine Brush to remove pet hair from upholstery
  • 12-foot wand and hose for curtains and other hard-to-reach areas
  • HEPA filtration to remove allergens, pollutants and irritants
  • Available at an SRP of $249
  • Visit www.panasonic.com/vacuums for more information

BOTTOM LINE:

For its price point, I think the Panasonic MC-UL915 Jetspin Cyclone is a GREAT buy! If you don’t want to spend a ton on a vacuum, but you want some good suction and performance, the Panasonic MC-UL915 Jetspin Cyclone is a good option.

So, after I got married I decided it was time for my first vacuum. I was living in a moldy old trailer at the time so I picked out the Bissel that is supposed to trap and kill mold. I used it four times before it quit turning on. And, being a Chaos Queen, I couldn’t find my warranty until well after we moved and I’d had the vacuum forever. So, since then we’ve bought several of the cheapest vacuums we could find. Features of my dream vacuum?~ It doesn’t fall on my face when I’m using the hose.~I don’t feel like I’m wrestling a gladiator when I try to get it out of the closet. ~ Good hose suction, a brush that doesn’t maul the carpet, and the attachments stay on? Plus! ~ Not shy around children? Mega plus.

I haven’t bought a new vacuum in years but when I look for a new one it will definitely need some POWER behind it. There’s nothing more annoying than having to vacuum the same spot several times to get it truly clean. My toddler drops all kinds of things (mostly food) on the floor and what doesn’t get eaten by the dog settles into the carpet quickly, meaning I have to vacuum ALL the time! Sigh. So, my answer is power. That’s what I want in my next vacuum.

At this point I’d love to have a vacuum that just picked stuff up! We have a vacuum that is pretty much useless, which is a bad situation when we have 2 cats and a dog! I’d probably hate vacuuming a lot less if it did something other than just pushing dirt around.

I look for a bagless vacuum, the bags are so expensive and messy too. I like that this vacuum has a dirt cup you can wash.

I always look for enough power and suction to get all that cat hair and litter! :)

Hi! It is so hard to find a good vacuum I have 2 kids with allergies and 2 shedding dogs so I really look for one that has a good hepa filter and great suction especially of pet hair. Unfortunately that can make a very expensive combination this would be a great win, thanks for the contests you guys are the best!

Powerful suction is important for me. I have a cat that gets fur everywhere and four kids who love to make messes or are constantly dropping things. I need something that will get it up quickly and efficiently.

This would be a great prize to win! my vacuum is slowly dying! I like something lightweight…with POWERFUL sucking action!

The feature I would look for first is allergen/pet hair pick up. We recently purchased a vacuum that had excellent ratings in that area. Unfortunately it is VERY heavy. It also misses an inch out from the wall. I know edging is important, however, I don’t always want to have to edge and this vacuum requires it. There’s my two cents, maybe 5 cents…

It has two wheels that work.

Story: Teenage daughter was trying to get something unstuck from the vaccuum.

Picked up the vacuum and hit it hard on the floor… the wheel broke.

Now I am using a vacuum with a messed up wheel.

I just want one WITHOUT a janked wheel…. just a thought.. it’d be nice!

I look for the HEPA filter as we have allergies and asthma in my house – and one that isn’t 50lbs would be fantastic!

As my vacuum cleaner died the same week we got a new dog, I think this is a great contest for me to enter — and hopefully win! :-)

I look for a vacuum that can pick up Cheerios… seriously, because mine just won’t do it!

I need a vacuum that actually picks up all the dirt! With three little boys ages 4-8, they are CONSTANTLY dragging dirt all over our light beige carpets, LOL:)

I need a vacuum that works on dog hair! The dirt sensor sounds great to me.

I love that this is bagless. I just had to change the bag in our vacuum and it was a big mess and a pain to do. :P

The most important feature for me is the HEPA filtration system because we have people with allergies in our home.

126 Marlena U. August 5, 2010 at 12:32 pm

I look for a vacuum cleaner that can reduce allergens in our home since we struggle with allergies year round. One that is light-weight is also a plus for hauling it up and down the stairs!

My Vacuum cleaner is dead..I would so enjoy having one that actually works like it is supposed to. :o)

What I look for in a vacuum is one that is not to heavy, and one that can clean up all the dog hair! I also love the bag-less feature, I am always out of bags when I need one the most!

Reply

130 Kristin August 8, 2010 at 2:20 am

I don’t do bags, either. And I look for ease of use. Vacuuming pet fur off of stairs sucks no matter what, but that detachable part sure makes it look easier!

My favorite part of this vaccuum is the 12-foot wand and hose , my vaccuum does not have this feature which makes vaccuuming stairs and high places a real pain!!

I look for a vaccuum that can stand up to kid messes and pet hair…..and not weigh two tons, because I have to lug it up and down the stairs.

I love vacuums that are bagless, have HEPA and can get the job done. We have a big hair problem. It would be awesome not to have to give my vacuum a haircut every time I vacuum.

I look for a vacuum that is lightweight yet powerful. I have 3 dogs and 4 cats and vacuum everyday. I need something that makes the job easier. The Panasonic MC-UL915 Jetspin Cyclone looks like it would be great for the job

The pet hair…it would be a real blessing to have one tool to eradicate it all. Lightweight is a major plus.

What I look for in a vacuum are: ease of use (not to heavy to push around plus easy to get into hard places), little noise, good suction or cleaning power.

I am looking for a vacuum that is strong enough to pick up cat hair…my little darlings(3) do not shed too badly, but during changes of the season it does get worse.
I want one that is reasonably lightweight cause I will use it often.
Wonderful, helpful giveaway, thanks.

148 Cori Westphal August 19, 2010 at 5:34 pm

One of the main things I look for is a lightweight vacuum. I have a hard time lugging a heavy one around. Another is noise. I like ones that aren’t ridiculously loud. I do a lot of vacuuming and loud vacuum’s give me a headache!
