When it comes to the best vacuum cleaner manufacturer, Dyson is certainly up there in the top five. One of the best and most innovative companies in the world, they are often the first to present us with new and exciting leaps forward in the world of home cleaning.
There is a Dyson for everyone and every home, and the V10 range is the latest on the market when it comes to cordless vacuuming. They are excellent and reliable pieces of machinery, and a home appliance that you simply won’t be able to live without once you have tried it.
Like most of the V series, there are three different models within the V10 range for you to try out – the animal, absolute, and total clean. Each of these is brilliant in their own right and have benefits for different homes and situations, even though they are very similar on a functional level.
To learn more and see which of these is right for you, take a look at our detailed reviews for each model below.
Dyson V10 Animal

This cordless vacuum cleaner offers more power than any of the models that came before it, and is the perfect addition to any home that has one or more pets. Converting into a nifty handheld model that you can use to clean difficult areas like the stairs. Plus, it comes with a whole host of attachments and accessories to make cleaning more thorough.
One of our top picks in our best cordless vacuum roundup. This model has a slim and lightweight design that ensures easy handling and also means that anyone can use it without getting sore wrists. It also transforms into a handheld model with great ease, allowing you to reach difficult areas, as well as the stairs and furniture.
With perfect balance, the extension tube can reach up high, as well as right under low furniture. The Dyson V10 Animal comes with a torque drive cleaner head, and this promises to collect 25% more dust from your carpets than its V8 counterpart.
It is a multi-floor head, which means that it can be used on both carpets and hard floors, and the rotating brush roll agitates the carpets in order to remove that really embedded fur and dirt. The suction is incredible, with three different power modes that are made to keep every inch of your home clean.
Even the low setting is often enough for fuzzy carpets to be left looking brand new. In Dyson’s best move yet, you are offered a whole hour of fade-free suction (although the higher power modes do reduce this time), and a short charge period that only lasts three hours.
Compact and easy to store away, it will fit into even the smallest cupboard spaces – which is perfect for those who live in little homes or are severely lacking space. Alternatively, it comes with a docking station that can be secured to your wall (all parts included).
This means that the vacuum can hang from your wall in order to charge as well as for storage purposes. The Dyson V10 Animal uses a HEPA filter, which works to capture 99.7% of dust and allergen particles as small as 0.3 microns.
This means that those with asthma and allergies can use the vacuum cleaner without worrying about triggering particles, and clean air is pushed out of the machine to prevent the same dust from returning. The filter is also washable for your convenience.
It also comes with a fantastic range of tools and accessories to keep your home spotless, including a mini motorised tool that will collect pet hair without the brush roll becoming tangled – and it really works.
This works wonders on carpets and furniture alike, no matter how much hair is present. There is also the classic tool selection, which consists of a crevice tool, dusting brush, and upholstery tool.
Dyson V10 Total Clean

If your home is in need of a deep and thorough clean, this is the Dyson you will want to keep in mind. Made for homes that need some extra love, the Total Clean works hard to leave floors looking brand new again. With a whole range of accessories, as well as some useful features, it is a model that you will want to seriously consider.
The Dyson V10 Total Clean is a cordless vacuum cleaner that has a sleek and stylish design, as well as lightweight and simple handling that anyone can get the hang of quickly.
Versatile and easy to use, it offers 60 minutes of battery life (higher power modes will make it shorter) and fade-free suction for the duration – so you are always getting the best possible level of power, and can clean your home with confidence.
The Dyson digital motor is what gives it this incredible suction and battery life, allowing you to clean more of your home in one go. Plus, when it is ready to charge you just need to mount it on the wall using the provided docking station – making for the ideal storage and charge location – and it will only take three hours to reach full battery.
It folds down into a handheld model, and even in this form it has a brilliant dust canister capacity and is very quick and easy to empty. Once in this form, cleaning the stairs and furniture becomes a lot easier – and the same goes for tight spaces and the interior of your car.
The included extension wand is also very versatile, able to reach high places with ease, as well as get right under low furniture. The direct drive cleaning head means that you can use it across all floor types, so carpets and hard floors alike will benefit from this model being run over them.
When compared to the V8 Total Clean, the V10 can remove 25% more dirt from your floors, leaving them cleaner than ever before. It comes with some fantastic attachments as well, including a crevice tool, dusting brush, and an upholstery tool. They all snap onto the vacuum using Dyson’s new and easy clip mechanism.
The included HEPA filter in the Dyson V10 Total Clean is ideal for those who suffer from asthma and allergies. It is able to capture particles up to 0.3 microns in size, trapping 99.7% of every little allergen and dust particle that it comes into contact with.
Pushing clean air back into the home, it prevents the release of captured dust, and also prevents asthma and allergies from being triggered. Not to mention that the filter is completely washable as well.
Dyson V10 Absolute
Cordless stick vacuum
Often the most popular of each range in the V series, the Absolute tends to have it all. Suitable for every home and situation, there isn’t much that it can’t do in terms of vacuuming. Arguably one of the best on the market, the V10 Absolute delivers when it comes to power, functionality, and brilliant additional features.
Lightweight and easy to handle, there is a lot that this slim and stylish vacuum cleaner has to offer. To make the handling even easier, it also transforms into a handheld vacuum cleaner, providing you with a comfortable machine to use that can reach difficult areas, as well as get the stairs and furniture in an effective manner.
The suction remains just as good in this form, and it comes with an excellent dust canister that is very simple to empty, but also has a larger capacity (40% bigger) than the rest of the V series.
It comes with a torque drive cleaner head, just like the Animal, that can be used on all floor types and promises to collect 25% more dust from carpets than its V8 counterpart.
On top of this, it also has a fluffy head, and this is used on hardwood floor (and other hard surfaces) for a clean that is both gentle and powerful – removing large and small debris alike.
The battery lasts for a full 60 minutes (although the different power settings will affect this), giving you more time than ever to give your home the deep clean it has always wanted.
During that time, you also get powerful fade-free suction, so no matter how low the battery runs, or full the canister gets, the suction remains the same. It only takes three hours to charge, and you have the added bonus of an included wall mount if you want to charge and store it on your wall.
The HEPA filter works wonders when removing allergens and dust from the home as it is able to capture particles as small as 0.3 microns with great ease. Ensuring that 99.7% of all potentially triggering particles are trapped in the filter, it pushes clean air back into the home so that you don’t end up with an asthma attack or allergic reaction.
Plus, it means you don’t have the same dust constantly circling your home. The Dyson V10 Absolute comes with the same tools as the Animal, so you get the motorised brush tool that removes pet hair without it getting tangled up in the brushes.
It has proved itself an excellent and effective tool, and it is able to pick up massive clumps without anything getting stuck or trapped. Other than that, you get the classic dusting brush, crevice tool, and upholstery tool, and the extension want can reach way up high as well as under low furniture.
How Does It Compare?
Here are some other, similar, models of Dyson vacuum cleaner for you to consider, just in case you want to look at other options before you commit to a Dyson V10.
The Dyson V8 animal is ideal for homes with pets, as the brush bar has 150% more power than the V6 – so even the most embedded pet hair can be removed from the carpet. It has an impressive battery life of 40-minutes, although it does take a while to charge. The filtration system is excellent, and there is also a great range of accessories with it.
The Absolute was made for really getting into your carpets, providing you with a deep clean that is unrivalled by other brands of cordless vacuum cleaners. There is a fantastic selection of attachments as well, which are especially useful when it converts into a handheld model for the stairs and furniture. Plus, it can be mounted on the wall for easy storage as well as charging.
The total clean from the Dyson V8 range is excellent when it comes to suction, and it will work wonderfully across all floor types so that you can give your home the clean it needs. The battery lasts for an impressive 40 minutes, and when it is time to charge it, you can have it mounted on the wall. Plus, it transforms into a handheld model so that you can clean furniture and stairs with great ease.
