I received a Black + Decker hand-held vacuum in exchange for this post. All opinions are my own.
Remembering the days of the traditional Dustbuster-style hand vacuum, we were seeking an effective and dependable hand vac that can tackle crumbs, dust, and dirt under furniture, in the car and that was at a price point that didn’t feel like it would break the budget. We received the Black + Decker Pivot and put it to the test.
During the week I seem to live in my vehicle. Commuting to and from work, running the kiddos around and trying to keep up. There are mornings I head out the door with breakfast in my hand and evening we hit the drive through to grab something on the way. My vehicle’s interior shows our life.
I tasked the kiddos with cleaning out the car. When I let them know they could use the new Black and Decker hand vac they were eager! After they removed the water bottles, napkins and other debris we were left with the above picture.
The Black + Decker Pivot is easy to maneuver and took on the dirt not only from the carpet but the bare concrete when they dumped my mats. It took on Bailey Mae’s pet hair.
The Black + Decker Pivot offers a pivoting nozzle that reaches in small crevices and cracks. It pivots in both directions and offers multiple angles so you can get in where you need it. Tougher areas are no problem with the on-board brush and extendable crevice tool. It’s lightweight at just about five pounds and has a washable filter.
Dirt flows to a well-sized dirt cup, so there are fewer occasions to empty. We found it needs to be emptied before storage or when you fold down the nozzle, leftover dirt falls out.
We’ve used it to clean the couch, to get in the crevices of steps, around the washer and dryer and found the brush features work well on the dryer lint catcher. It’s easy to use–just grab, power on and your on your way.
When your done, it folds up for easy storage.
It is a tad loud, and the battery will last about 15 minutes. It’s not for big tasks, but works excellent for the smaller jobs where you need a little oomph!
All in all, the Black + Decker Pivot hand-held vacuum is a great choice that will have you enjoying a new sense of clean.
