Oreck Magnesium Vacuum & Ultimate handheld vac Review and Giveaway

Who's ready for some serious giveaway goodness today!?
Cason and I have teamed up with the ever-fabulous Oreck vacuum cleaner company to share with you one of our newest favorite things!



It may sound silly, but I'm a bit of a vacuum snob, (heaven knows we've had enough in our married lifetime) and very rarely do new vacuums actually 'fit the bill'. Here are a few things that are MUSTS when it comes to the perfect vacuum for our family.


* Long cord

* Super-sucking power

* No crumb-kick-back when vacuuming hardwood floors

* Lightweight (so kids can vacuum the basement, which is one of their chores)

* Compact enough to go under furniture (so I don't have to move it)

* High and low speed

* No hose attachment system (they always break, slow down suction and just get gross)

At this point you're either thinking... "AMEN! I want the same things!" or...
  "Oookay, this family is way too picky about their vacuum's"
Well... being a self confessed OCD clean freak, I have to admit that our vacuum comes out at LEAST 3 times a week. To me, there is something about a freshly vacuumed house that screams "STRESS RELIEF". I have a really hard time functioning or focusing on much else when my house is a disaster, and knowing that everything is clean enough to actually accommodate a good vacuum job is probably more of the reason that I feel that 'stress' lift off my shoulders.
Is anyone with me here? (I'm starting to feel exposed) ha!

So now that you know all about me and my 'crazy ways', you can imagine how excited I was to actually try out this new Oreck Magnesium vacuum for myself...
Two words. TOTALLY AWESOME!
Really... I never thought I would say this about a vacuum, but I'm completely smitten by how well this little guy works, and he literally passed my "check-list" with flying colors.


Extra long 30ft. cord, to reach almost every corner of my house from just ONE outlet?...
Check!

Super-sucking power, to pick up crumbs, pine-needles and Christmas packaging aftermath, but gentle enough to use on even my nicest rug? And also still have the ability to knock down it's power to a lower speed, with it's Quickswitch two speed function, so that there is no crumb-kick-back on hardwood floors?...
Check, Check!
Yes, I vacuum in bare feet :) And if you understand or know about "crumb-kick-back" on hardwood floors with vacuums, then you will TOTALLY appreciate this feature.

Lightweight, compact, and able to reach those tricky places?
Triple Check!

At only about 7 pounds this baby is by far the lightest vacuum we've ever had. Definitely a whole lot easier to bring up and down the stairs then our last vacuum. And I love that my kids can use it too.

Oh! and remember how I hate the hose attachment ON my vacuum, but I still need one? Well, Oreck has this awesome Ultimate Handheld Vac that is perfect for corners, baseboards, blinds and all those other small jobs around the house.

We have used ours a TON for our latest master bathroom DIY projects. It's super light, at a measly 5lbs and slings right on your shoulder for easy use.
Especially great for sawdust cleanup, when installing new hardware on bathroom cabinets
:)


Alright, so now that I've gushed about how fab these new Oreck products are, and how much WE love them... are YOU ready to win a set for yourself!?

  11. I am so beyond excited about this giveaway! I am somewhat of a vacuum fanatic myself! I was just vacuuming my house this morning thinking I need a new vacuum....but like you I don't just want any ol' vacuum! .....My favorite feature about the new Oreck Magnesium vacuum has got to be that it weighs 7.7lbs!!!! I learned that the HEPA inner bag captures at least 99.97% of particles as small as .3 microns from that air, such as pollen, dust, smoke, animal dander and mold spores! Amazing! Talk about making my house feel super clean!

    ReplyDelete
  12. wow this vacuum sounds absolutely perfect!!! I love that it can pick up crumbs on hardwood floors. I love that it is lightweight. I love that it doesn't have hoses to get junky. I love it all and would love to win!! hlvognetz@yahoo.com

    ReplyDelete
  13. I'm not sure I can choose what I like best! 7lbs is AWESOME! Plus, being able to use it on all of the flooring (carpet, wood...) is really nice!

  16. I LOVE the cord length, that is my biggest pet peeves with vacuums!

    ReplyDelete
  17. I love the LONG cord... might be able to vacuum the whole house. I also love the HEPA bags and also that it has a 7 year warranty. We so need a new vacuum... ours is about to die and our handheld has died so we are on the look out for new vacuums.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I LOVE the hard wood floor feature ... its one of those, 'Why didnt I think of that' moments! - the lightweight feature ... well, now I will have NO Excuse for not vacuuming my stairs. This could be good ... OR BAD.

    My fingers are crossed!!! (and my toes!)

    ReplyDelete
  19. I also "liked" Oreck on facebook.

    ReplyDelete
  20. The best feature for me would be the long cord! I am forever having to change outlets when I'm vacuuming because my cord is too short!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Oh I need a new vacuum and this sounds awesome. I checked it out on their website and I like that it is lightweight (for my stairs) and that it can transition from carpet to hard flooring! Awesome! Would love to win this. :) Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I love that you only have to pass over an area ONCE! My current vacuum cannot say the same.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Love the light weight, strong suction and HEPA bag!
    The handheld looks awesome! Long cord, 5ft slinky hose and the great straps to hold it!.. +way more.
    I learned that the HEPA filter caputures A LOT of dirt and particles.. thats crazy! Its also one of their lightest (weight) vacuums.

    GREAT features! Love it!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I'm entering to win an @Oreck Magnesium vacuum and Ultimate handheld vac -- I love the Lightweight & Easy To Use feature. I will give to my son for his new home. I've "lent" him my Oreck but I want it back!

  28. Love the Oreck product line. Love that it's light weight. If I won the contest I'd give my son my older one and keep the newer one. He just purchased a home and needs a good Oreck.

  30. I like the HEPA inner filter feature. We get a lot of dust from DIYing and the fact we live on a farm in the county. It seems like everything is always dusty! I learned the HEPA filter will cut down on that.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I love the fact that it has the no crumb kick back!! I hate that about the vacuum I have now!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I actually like the Hepa Inner bag that is has. Our vacuum has one of those canister thingies, and I actually think it's kind of messy.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I have had an Oreck for 8 years and love it! I liked checking out the Oreck Mangesium online- the feature I like most is that it can lay almost flat, which would allow me to get all those dust bunnies under the beds and cribs in our house. I also like that it has a 7 year warranty.

  36. OH...You have sold me on the vacuum. I have never had an oreck and really wish to have one. I love that I would be able to go from room to room (carpet or hardwood) without having to replug it in. I friended oreck!~ sallym321@yahoo.com

    ReplyDelete
  37. I love the hepa filter feature. I hate to think of all that dust and dirt in the air. It captures at least 99.97% of particles as small as .3 microns from that air, such as pollen, dust, smoke, animal dander and mold spores. LOVE!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Ok...you crack me up!, but I also have the same weird things I want from my vacuum.. Especially the hard floor crumb kick back! Amazing. I would like to win this please, mama needs a brand new vacuum! I went to the sight and learned a ton, it weighing less than 8lbs definitely Impressed me. I also liked it on FB!

  40. I love the long cord! I hate having to move my cord around as I vacuum. I also love that it can transition from hardwood floors to carpet so easily.

    ReplyDelete
  41. The thing I love the most about new Oreck is that it's lightweight! I also read that the motor has so much speed that it felt like it self-propelled on many surfaces. Which is awesome. The vacuum we have doesn't stand up on it's own anymore (kiddo broke it), it's super heave and hard to push across carpet.

  42. No crumb kickback! Teens, pets and Christmas cleanup make this a very attractive feature!

    ReplyDelete
  43. I liked the saniseal system that locks dirt in the bag. Nothing worse than having the dirt you just vacuumed up getting back out when you go to dispose of the bag. Plus, the hepa filtration is very important to me because my husband has a dust allergy. Thanks for hosting this giveaway. Oreck's rock!

    ReplyDelete
  44. All my vacuums have been bulky and heavy with pieces falling off while I worked. : ( A lightweight, powerful upright and a handheld? Heavenly!

    ReplyDelete
  45. I LOVE the 30ft cord! A long cord is a must for me. I hate having to stop in the middle of vacuuming to plug the cord in somewhere else. juliesmith2002@gmail.com

    ReplyDelete
  46. No crumb kickback! Pets, kids and after Christmas cleanup make this a very attractive feature.

  48. I too am a vacuum snob. I haven't found one that I love yet. I also love that this vacuum has a hepa filter/bag. I hate the bagless vaccums. I can never seem to get rid of all the dust and dirt.

  73. I'm pretty excited about the fact that it is lightweight (good for the kids and a mom with rheumatoid arthritis). I didn't realize it could vacuum so fully unfolded to get under furniture. Cool!

    ReplyDelete
  74. Love love love that it has different speeds and an extra long cord. Didn't realize that it can lay practically flat. Oh yes that would be so awesome! Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  75. WOW Three-year warranty! This is my favorite feature. The last two vacuums I bought I consider "disposable" models. Excited that a company actually believes their product will last.
    I learned that it is actually made of magnesium. :)

  82. I'm loving that it is so lightweight! Just bought a new house and moved from a 700 square foot apartment and we are getting used to having more space to clean! This thing would be so easy to move from upstairs to downstairs. And if it actually cleans with one pass as the description mentions, I'd actually have to re-teach myself how to vacumm :) I always go over spots a few times - probably because my vacuum is my age!

  104. I would absolutely love to win this giveaway! I grew up with an Oreck vacuum and have always loved them. My favorite feature about this vacuum is how lightweight it is. Because I have rheumatoid arthritis, vacuuming can be extremely difficult and I would love to win this vacuum to make vacuuming much easier. What I learned about this vacuum is that it creates 102 mph of airflow for some great power!

  115. LOVE how the Magnesium is lightweight! I tend to pick up my vacuum a lot while vacuuming to get certain spots, etc. and I just love the versatility of that one! Thanks for the chance! :)

    ReplyDelete
  116. I love that there is no crumb kickback. I didn't even know that this feature was a possibility!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  117. I absolutely LOVE that you can vacuum hardwood floors! That's seriously the worst when the crumbs go all over and you end up sweeping after vacuuming....ummm annoying. I was surprised to learn how flexible it is, how nice to be able to vacuum under things without having to move the furniture! This is a great giveaway!!!

  120. Okay, there are a LOT of things that seem great about this, but I think the fact that it nearly lies flat (to vacuum under that pesky too-heavy-to-move coffee table) is the best feature of all!! Thanks!

  126. I love the idea of it picking up all the crumbs on our hard wood floors, I always have to get a broom and sweeps first.

  130. I have a large shag rub that is a bear to vacuum! I just read about Oreck’s cylindrical wheel bearings design and I am thrilled to think about actually vacuuming with ease. I cannot imagine how awesome that would be. We are talking life changing here!

  131. Oh, you had me at lightweight! And at vacuuming hard floors!

  132. Can I just love it cause it's blue? And perhaps it lays completly flat so I don't have to move my furniture around....or may 'cause it is blue...

  135. I love the Oreck cleaning products but I don't have one of their vacuums. I love that this has a lot of power and doesn't have "crumb kickback". :)

  139. I have the Oreck XL21 and absolutely love it. I didn't think it was possible for Oreck to improve, but it looks like they put all the awesome features (light weight, long cord and hepa filter bags) into one place. I would love to win one of my own.

  142. I love that it can go flat to get under furniture - like that huge hutch we can't move! thanks!!

  143. The no crumb kick back is the best feature ever ! I would love to use one!

  144. I like that you can carry it over your shoulder (I also like the way it looks). I learned that it is 7.7 lbs, which is lighter than my laptop.

  145. OHMAGOSH! This is by far my favorite giveaway that you've done! I need a new vacuum soooooooo bad! Especially one that doesn't have crumb kickback! That is so annoying. I don't know what it is, but crumbs multiply and replenish on my floor overnight. I am ALWAYS sweeping. My current vacuum has sucky suction....as in crappy, not very much and it weighs 500 lbs, I swear! I wanna win this more than anything I've ever entered before! Man, this little vacuum would be so loved at my house! ;)

  147. My favorite feature is the HEPA Inner Bag with the Sani Seal System because I have allergies. I learned that the Oreck Magnesium's frame stronger than many kinds of steel.

  151. I NEED this!!!! Can you believe I actually had to go to the dr last week because when our old vac died and I threw it away, it was so heavy that I pulled something and thought I was having a heart attack the next day??! I KNOW - DUMB! I hate heavy vacs! I love that this one is lightweight and has the super long cord (a must!)
    Consider this my 1st entry, more than the mulberries at gmail dot com

    Thanks Shelley!

  155. I like that it is light weight. There is nothing more aggravating than having to lug a heavy vacuum up and down stairs when trying to clean your house!! I liked Oreck on fb! :)

  156. Love the two speeds for carpet and hardwood. The no crumb kickback sounds awesome! With 3 kids under 5, there are lots of crumbs in the kitchen and dining area!

  157. I'm in need of a new vacuum, this would be perfect! I like that it's light weight and powerful enough to use on thick rugs and hard wood. And I like that it can easily lay flat to reach under tables ect.

  159. The ligh weight feature is best for me! With a steep staircase to carry a vacuum up and down the lightness is a must!
