As a fundamentally lazy person, I was so pleased at the prospect of having a light, easy sweeper that I could whip out to brush up even the smallest mess at the flick of a wrist.
I wondered whether this would be just another gadget and, ultimately, a purchase that would sit at the back of my pantry, never seeing the light of day.
In all truth be told, this really is a fabulous little gizmo. I don't bring the vacuum cleaner out nowadays for anything other that the most serious of spills. If I confess to all my slovenly sins, then I probably used to vacuum every week or so. Nowadays, I whisk the Gtech every day over the ground floor, and upstairs when I feel thorough!
It's a great piece of design - it does the job, and improves the expectation: it's so light that you whip it out for anything, it's rechargeable so it's no bother or a heavy cord, and there's no bag to empty either.
In a heavily shag-carpeted house, I think this might struggle. But for any other floors, and especially hard or laminate floors this is perfect.
