We have been asked by the team at Vorwerk to find 10 (lucky) Mumsnetters to try their latest Kobold VK200 vacuum cleaner and report back on MN!

They say “compact, unbeatably handy and extremely powerful, the Kobold VK200 Upright Vacuum Cleaner is the ideal addition to your household, making life easier and cleaner.
Designed by global German household appliance manufacturer Vorwerk, the Kobold VK200, in combination with two different attachments, takes care of all your floor cleaning needs. Whether it’s carpets or hard floors – the Kobold VK200 Homecare System has it covered.

The unique SP530 Duo Clean head allows you to mop and vacuum at the same time – a world first! It uses just 100ml of water to cover up to 20 m² of hard floor. And the best part? Simply remove the cleaning cloths when you’ve finished and pop them in the washing machine ready for next time.

“The EB400 brush head meanwhile ensures vacuuming is thorough, gentle and hygienic – driven by its own motor, a special rotating brush scans the floor 16 times per second and removes dirt and dust completely. Even the finest dirt particles do not stand a chance!

“Visit to find out more about the Kobold VK200 vacuum cleaner and discover the array of clever additional accessories that turn this machine into the Ultimate Homecare System! Simply click and swap to the attachment you need to expertly deal with upholstery, furniture, mattresses, textiles and anything else you need cleaned. Built to last, the Kobold VK200 is the only vacuum cleaner you’ll ever need”.

Selected testers will be sent the Kobold VK200 to use in their own home and asked to share feedback on a thread on Mumsnet. We’d be looking for at least three lots of feedback plus photos of the vac in action. Those selected will be asked to share their first impressions as well as follow up feedback after it has been used a few times. Those selected will also need to add a review on MN.

Prior to use, each selected tester will receive a visit from a representative from the team at Vorwerk who will do a personal demo of the machine in the tester’s own home to ensure the features are fully understood.

If you’d like to be considered, please sign up here and we will be in touch with selected testers soon grin.

Best of Luck

Oh my gosh, this would be amazing! Can you imagine how clean you could get everywhere! Ha ha. Fingers crossed.

Have applied.
With mobility probs, having a great new piece of kit like this would make it less of a strain to keep the place spotless.


vincenta Tue 04-Oct-16 14:24:11

Looks soooo good. fingers crossed!

Pinkangel23 Tue 04-Oct-16 14:35:21

Hi, I have a busy household with vacuums that don't last and would definitely like the try it.,

ilovesprouts Tue 04-Oct-16 14:39:37

done fingers s crossed x

ReedBunting Tue 04-Oct-16 15:19:53

Done. we have tried many different vacuum cleaners and are yet to find the one that can cope with our house!

FlouncingIntoAutumn Tue 04-Oct-16 15:49:57

Done. Do you think they'd leave a VR200 behind as well, in the interests of consumer testing? I'd love to do a multi device trial of conventional vs handheld vs robot grin

Much as I love that clean home satisfaction, I can't say vacuuming is the highlight of my day. Be happy to spend a little less time doing it.

SillyMoomin Tue 04-Oct-16 15:50:35

Oh yes please!! Despite brand new carpets they seem to be a magnet for dirt in random places

asuwere Tue 04-Oct-16 16:03:21

How long would the demo take from the rep? That would effect when would be a good time for me to put on form.
Also, do testers get to keep it or is it just for a trial?

Tequilamockinbird Tue 04-Oct-16 16:34:37

Done! With 4 bathrooms and a kitchen to mop, and carpets to vacuum everywhere else, this would be amazing!

Butteredparsn1ps Tue 04-Oct-16 16:38:35

That does sound good. I could very definitely be persuaded by an all in one hoover + mop

ThatIsNachoCheese Tue 04-Oct-16 16:40:44

I think I've done it, I didn't get a confirmation though, would it be possible to check?
Thank you smile

OhNoNotMyBaby Tue 04-Oct-16 17:16:58

Done. I hate housework with a passion, so anything that makes it easier and quicker has got to be good!

TheBitterBoy Tue 04-Oct-16 17:19:49

Love Vorwerk - my mum and dad have had theirs for over 25 years, still as good as new. It was super expensive when they bought it, but id has paid for itself over and over.

hermancakedestroyer Tue 04-Oct-16 17:43:55

Done! What a great opportunity to try a cleaning system to keep my news carpets and flooring in great condition.

ilovesprouts Tue 04-Oct-16 17:53:49

paddypants13 Tue 04-Oct-16 18:40:43

usernamewastooobv Tue 04-Oct-16 23:18:55

Registered - I would be so chuffed if I was chosen to test this product as would like to try another brand to the one I have always used.

WhereDoAllThePokemonGo Wed 05-Oct-16 08:04:51

This sounds too good to be true, something that halves the time I have to spend faffing around with the floors! Would be a revelation for my beige carpeted and white tiled house grin

BathshebaDarkstone Wed 05-Oct-16 08:09:57

Done! DH would love to try this!

AnnMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 05-Oct-16 12:24:31
