Price and availability

Starting at $599.95 / £499.99 / AU$1,099, the Dyson V11 certainly doesn’t come cheap

When you get the Dyson V11 Absolute Pro, you get a device that not only helps you keep the house spick and span but also dubs as a modern decorative item, easily blending with your home decor. You don’t have to hide the V11 Absolute Pro vacuum cleaner in your storage closet, instead, you can conveniently place anywhere.

The Dyson V11 Absolute Pro comes with a set of nine attachments that can be used for cleaning everything from the hard-to-get nooks and crannies of your house, to your carpets and mattresses, and even the distant corner of your sofa. While most of the attachments available with the Dyson V11 Absolute Pro are the same as the ones available with last year’s Cyclone V10, two attachments that can be used for cleaning flat surfaces like floors, mattresses, and rugs have got an upgrade.

One of the attachments can detect the type of surface it is being used on — like the hard floor or a carpet — and automatically adjust its brushes to clean that surface with the best possible settings. The other one is designed for more robust cleaning. So if you have a carpet or if you are planning to clean the floor thoroughly, you can manually control the suction power of the V11 engine to clean the house with the combination of the best available settings.

It has the streak of gold, the copper-esque rod from Cyclone V10 which has been transformed into a golden beacon in the V11 Absolute Pro. Although it does the same job of giving more length to the vacuum cleaner, it looks jazzier.

The Dyson V11 Absolute Pro comes with an LCD display that gives you all the information that you could ever need. This means that you can now see the exact percentage of battery remaining after you have used your vacuum cleaner. You can also see and select the mode – Eco, Automatic or Medium or Boost – you want to use. In addition to this, the screen will show you when the battery of the vacuum cleaner drains out completely and when users need to clean the filters. The screen also shows you if there is a blockage and how users can remove those blockages,

The newly launched vacuum cleaner comes with a tall stand consisting of a silver-white rod that sits on top of a round metallic surface that holds the entire ensemble. This too adds to the good looks of the appliance. The metallic base also serves as an easy access point for charging the cordless vacuum cleaner.

The motor of the Dyson V11 Absolute Pro vacuum cleaner spins at a speed of 125,000rpm or 60 times in a second. This coupled with a triple diffuser system and a ceramic impeller shaft not only help in reducing the noise produced by the vacuum cleaner but also in reducing the overall weight of the device.

Another thing that I liked about the V11 Absolute Pro vacuum cleaner is its dust disposal mechanism. The V11 vacuum cleaner, just like the Cyclone V10 vacuum cleaner, employs a point-and-shoot mechanism for emptying the bin where all the dust is collected.

A lasting battery is one of the most important aspects of a cordless vacuum cleaner. It is the juice that keeps a vacuum cleaner going for a period long enough for it to thoroughly clean an area. Once the vacuum cleaner is charged, it disconnects from the power source automatically. Dyson claims that the V11 Absolute vacuum cleaner provides a run time of at least 60 minutes when used under optimum conditions.

At a price point of Rs 53K, that is a bit expensive, the Dyson V11 Absolute Pro vacuum cleaner is undoubtedly one of the best vacuum cleaners in the market right now. It is fast, it is easy to use, it cleans well, it doesn’t produce a high level of noise and it looks great and the best thing — it has a display.
