I have struggled with a very heavy upright for years. Doing stairs with the attachments was a nightmare as the brushes still turned so wore the surface they were on. The chilli is light, very effective and easy to use. Converting it to and from hand held is straightforward and emptying it is not a problem. The cable is long enough to deal with most situations. It is amazing how effective such a light, easy to use vacuum can be.

I do not often go overboard when doing product reviews but this is most impressive.
1. Real power because it runs from the mains rather than useless rechargeable batteries.
2. Easy to use because it weighs about the same as a small electric drill (1.5kg) in hand held mode.
3. Loads of cable (approx 24ft) so going up or down stairs is no problem.
4. Using it in "standup" mode gives you a rotating brush just like a full size cleaner. How they achieve this is presently beyond my understanding but it works fine.
5. No less than four different attachments for virtually any job you can think of.
Of course having only just acquired this marvel I presently have no idea of reliability but other Earlex products I have bought in the past have had a reasonably long life. My wife is extremely pleased and I think the design and features are top class.

WHAT A LITTLE MARVEL!!!
I am disabled and would normally take 1 - 1 1/2 hours with several stops to vacuum my house through, but with this little marvel I can now whizz through every day with no effort at all! It is so light and easy to manouveur between furniture that I would normally have to move and that is an enormous bonus and it is also much more powerful than the wattage suggests.
I made an error when ordering and ordered 2 by mistake so I told a friend who purchased the unwanted one from me and she is over the moon with it.
This is definitely my favourite buy of the year.
Well done Ewbank!

Wow! This is the most fantastic little vacuum - it is powerful, especially considering its size, and is so versatile. The fact that it is run off the mains is much better for me, and the lead is nice and long so you can do the stairs, nooks and crannies with ease. I am disabled and purchased this because I just couldn't use my standard vacuum anymore. This Chilli Vac is lightweight but excellent quality, it can be used as both an upright and a hand-held, is so easy to store anywhere and cleans beautifully. It comes with various attachments which enable you to do your sofa, mattress, curtains, the car, the list is endless. This would be perfect for the elderly, anyone short of space, people with arthritic conditions, anyone who can't lift very much, and of course anyone at all. I am so happy, and can clean my home again without having to rely on other people to do it for me. Buy it, you won't be sorry. Two of my friends have already bought one since seeing mine!

Unfortunately my review follows EXACTLY the same experience as that posted by 'Lucie from Swansea' on this review site in Sept 2013. Like her I was delighted with this mini hoover, it is just what I was looking for: very powerful, converts into a handheld dust buster and has an extendable pole plus lots of useful attachments (which I can't comment on as I never got as far as using them!). However I had only been using it for just over a week and it suddenly started making a horrible grinding noise inside the motor and began sparking, with flames visible inside the motor vents, accompanied by a terrible electrical burning smell. The carpet I was hoovering at the time was barely soiled and I know I did not pick up anything like a small stone. The filter and floor head were clean. My boyfriend had a look inside the motor and a small piece of the plastic moulding on the inside looked like it had been chipped off and had entered the motor mechanism, becoming shredded into many tiny pieces. We think was the cause. The fuse in the plug was tested and was fine. I asked Amazon for a refund as the option to exchange was not available. I returned the hoover and in fairness I was very promptly refunded. I have since read that apparently there is a known fault of this nature in a particular batch of these hoovers, which I believe Earlex have now been asked to resolve. Based on the volume of other positive reviews on Amazon's site I am going to be brave and order another, as I otherwise agree that apart from being quite noisy (hardly a criticism given its power), it is a great little machine for my needs and would normally deserve the full 5 stars.
