The details

Shark’s Rocket DuoClean is a revamped version of an old classic. This lightweight stick vacuum has been redesigned to include a self-cleaning brush roll with Duoclean Technology that provides enough cleaning power for both carpets and hard flooring.

The Rocket DuoClean is ideal for picking up pet hair, dust and other messes on floors and can be converted to tackle stairs, furniture and more. As an added cleaning bonus, the Rocket DuoClean features LED lights on the vacuum nozzle to ensure you’re picking up debris that might not be visible to the naked eye.

The model weighs approximately 10 pounds and includes a one year warranty with each purchase.

What people are saying

The Shark Rocket DuoClean has earned an impressive 4.5-star rating on Amazon based on more than 200 reviews.

Shoppers have called this handy vacuum a game-changer in making a “once dreaded chore so much more enjoyable and satisfying.”

“The power suction is amazing,” one shopper said, adding that it picks up an “impressive” amount of dog fur.

“I have two huskies so I have to vacuum a lot,” another wrote. “It gives my carpet a very good clean.”

“It hugs along walls and corners without having to just use the hose,” a customer said.

Despite the positive reviews, there are some things to consider before you buy. For one thing, this is a corded vacuum without a retractible cord— something that some shoppers called "a pain." For the price, it's a great option for cleaning, however if you're looking for a cordless vacuum, this might not be the best pick for you. 

Another thing worth noting, is that some shoppers have called the 10-pound vacuum "too heavy" for them. If you're compromised physically or struggle lifting a vacuum up the stairs, this might not be ideal. 

Verdict

If you're looking for a new vacuum to tackle carpet and hard flooring without taking up too much storage space, the Shark Rocket DuoClean might be for you. However, if you're not keen on having to deal with power cords or have trouble lifting 10 pounds, this might not be the best option for you.
