Wanted: 20 MNers to put Dyson’s newest technology - The Dyson Cinetic™ vacuum cleaner, through its paces. We want manic homes. Messy children. And messier dogs. NOW CLOSED

Dyson are looking for 20 Mumsnetters to test out their newest vacuum - The Dyson Cinetic DC54 (Currently sold for £459.99 on the Dyson website).

Here's what Dyson have to say, "Dyson's latest vacuum cleaner uses Dyson Cinetic cyclone technology. 54 cyclones are equipped with oscillating rubber tips making them so efficient at separating dust there is no need for filter maintenance. As a result, it will not lose suction over the lifetime of the machine. It is Dyson's biggest step forward in vacuum technology since removing the bag in 1993."

Putting it to the test

"Dyson engineers spent 9,000 hours testing the new Dyson Cinetic; which is the equivalent of 500 years of vacuuming in the home. So now we want hectic households to put it to the test. Over 2 tonnes of dust was used to test the Dyson Cinetic vacuum, roughly the same weight as a bull elephant. Can you do better?"

No loss of suction. Ever.

"Bagged vacuums lose suction almost instantly. Fine dust clogs the pores of the bag restricting airflow while other cyclonic vacuum cleaners often rely on filters to capture dust which have the same problem. The Dyson Cinetic's oscillating rubber tips are made from a top secret material that's been tested with over 10 years' worth of test dust. The Dyson Cinetic vacuum cleaner will not lose suction."

To see how the oscillating tips work watch this video

This product test is open to all UK Mumsnetters.

Dyson are on the hunt for 20 MNers who are:
- Available to receive a machine, and willing to test it over a two week period between 17th February and 3rd March, so please only apply if you're available during this time. You will get to keep the Dyson Cinetic once you have finished testing.
- Able to leave feedback on the feedback thread, a review in the reviews section of Mumsnet, and a short survey outlining your feedback to be used on Dyson's website.
- Comfortable submitting photos of the test.

Dyson will set three challenges testing the speed, effectiveness and durability of the Dyson Cinetic which you'll need to complete. We'll post these on the feedback thread. Don't worry they should be fun!

If you want to sign up to test out the Dyson Cinetic, click here.

For those of you who aren't successful, keep an eye out for the feedback thread where you could still be in with the chance to win a Dyson Cinetic vacuum of your own.

If you add feedback as required you will be able to keep the product.


Please note: Testers will be required to send photos into Mumsnet (and optional video footage). These could potentially be used on Dyson websites and social media pages (Facebook, YouTube, Twitter etc).

Hi everyone, the feedback thread is now live here so please start posting there smile

Oh, the stairs 'gave' me loads!
I used the small turbo thing rather than the stair tool as there was so much dust and hair to harvest It was noisy, but worth it.

3princes Wed 19-Feb-14 14:36:20

It definitely does pick up more dust doesn't it, it's like magic or something shock

However, Ds1 (9) has Asperger's and informed me that "it obviously isn't magic, you just didn't clean properly last time, I mean, it can only collect what's there" �� Err, thanks DS1, I think you will find that was Hetty & not me!!

Going to tackle the stairs later, I rather dislike doing the stairs...

BehindLockNumberNine Wed 19-Feb-14 13:09:10

Hazel, same here!! Love the bloody thing smile
And dh is already lamenting how the clear cylinder is becoming scratched from all the dirt whizzing around inside. He even suggested doing less hoovering to keep the dyson looking nice shock grin

HazeltheMcWitch Wed 19-Feb-14 10:44:00

Me too.

I LOVE the Dyson, and I want a thread where where I can yammer on happily with fellow testers. I am boring people in real life with tales of "look how much dust I've collected! no, LOOK!!"


BehindLockNumberNine Wed 19-Feb-14 10:13:09

I was just about to ask the same thing. Not heard anything. Have done a little bit of dysoning and have things I want to say about it... Where is the feedback / review thread?

Justyou Tue 18-Feb-14 23:20:48

Has anyone heard anything about testing the Dyson yet ?

BehindLockNumberNine Mon 17-Feb-14 08:46:09

Oooooh, wow!! Mine arrived whilst I was away in The Netherlands visiting mum. Dh and the dc were home and I was sent a text saying : Your dyson has arrived, it is awesome! by dd aged 11 (on dh's mobile)

They left it in the box and when I got home last night we ceremoniously unpacked it. Wow, it is stunning!!
Ds aged 14 was particularly taken with it. One of his chores is to vacuum the house once a week and our old fally-over Henry was not really doing it for him.

We assembled it and the dc were actually arguing over who got to do the hovering!!

Loved how light it was and how incredibly easy to manouver it is.
Dh was most taken with the crevice tool with attached brush (easily pleased!!) although he did find the crevice tool a bit wide (for really large crevices??)

The only downside we noticed during our brief test-hoover last night was that it was quite noisy. We hovered a tiled kitchen and a hallway with wood floor and found the machine very noisy. Perhaps it will be better on carpet? We have carpets upstairs so will try that later today.

But all in all - Wow, can't wait to put it to the test properly!!

Babieseverywhere Sun 16-Feb-14 10:26:00

Wow, think I have vacuumed most of the house since we got this Dyson. Plus interestingly we have an argument everytime, I pull the thing of beauty out of it's box, as everyone wants to use it.

Even had my five year old DS wanting to know which was the right head for the stairs !

CoolaSchmoola Sat 15-Feb-14 20:33:35

I love that it is so light, compared to my DC07 it's like waving a wand.

I want to vacuum (trying not to say hoover!) more but don't want to risk waking small people who are also besotted with it and want to use it. Tis mine!!

3princes Sat 15-Feb-14 11:00:55

I gave mine a little test run yesterday afternoon, I liked the hard floor tool that turns sideways - got down the side of the fridge freezer that I usually have to use the hand attachments for. It made me all kinds of grin stupid hey!

I didn't mind using it before the challenges as I know that with these 3 little men & the puppy that the mess would soon return.

Oh, and MNHQ - it did well on the coco pop clear up after breakfast this morning - Hetty was giving it the evil eye under the dining table wink

Babieseverywhere Fri 14-Feb-14 19:40:23

Yippee, my Dyson arrived smile

Cataline Fri 14-Feb-14 18:01:44

Mine is here too!! grin

Babieseverywhere Fri 14-Feb-14 16:10:03

Nothing yet sad But still have time Parcel Force delivers up to 5.30pm fingers crossed.

No card through the door, so I haven't missed it.

HazeltheMcWitch Fri 14-Feb-14 14:49:03

Yup, Babies - Parcelforce bought mine too - has your arrived yet?

Is anyone else starting hoovering yet? I slightly want to wait for the challenges to be set, so as to ensure I get maximum dust and filth. Not really sure why that thought appeals to me... confused

gleegeek Fri 14-Feb-14 14:05:10

Woohoo mine has just arrived too! Can't believe this is actually real smile thank you so much MN and Dyson! CCan't believe I'm excited about hoovering...

LetItBeMe Fri 14-Feb-14 13:51:56

parcel force brought mine.

HazeltheMcWitch Fri 14-Feb-14 13:06:19

Mine's just arrived too! The package is very light, isn't it? Good sign...

I need to pop to supermarket now, then I'll come home and unwrap and play hoovering. I have NEVER been so excited about hoovering*, or indeed any housework at all.

* I know, I must stop saying 'hoovering'.

3princes Fri 14-Feb-14 12:43:06

Mine has just arrived too!
Off to take ds3 to playschool then I shall begin the unwrapping process!

Babieseverywhere Fri 14-Feb-14 11:50:27

Who is it delivered by ? Still waiting for mine. <looks down at floor> Hope it comes before afternoon school run. Might get a friend to do it, so I can wait for the Dyson <sad but excited icon>

HazeltheMcWitch Fri 14-Feb-14 11:05:30

whaaaaaaaat ???? envy

Belo Fri 14-Feb-14 10:58:48

Its here! I found myself opening the packaging as if it is Christmas day. I have to say that its an object of beauty!

It's inset day today so dd2 is at home. She's hoovering the dining room as I type! T

Justyou Fri 14-Feb-14 10:53:30
