Oreck Magnesium {Review + Giveaway}

***This contest is now closed. Congrats to Kyle for winning the Oreck Magnesium.***

I can hardly contain my excitement. In a week’s time, one of my lucky readers will win a lightweight and high-powered Oreck Magnesium!

Let me just say, the Magnesium is the only vacuum cleaner you’ll ever want or need.

The kind folks at Oreck sent my a Magnesium of my own to review, so let me tell you all about it!

The very first thing I noticed about the Magnesium is just now light it is. The vacuum weighs less than 8 pounds. In other words, this vacuum cleaner weighs 12 pounds less than Julia! It is so easy to push on every surface in our house.

I also love how sleek the Magnesium is. It easily fits under our chairs, tables, cabinets and even Julia’s crib. I feel like the area under our furniture gets much cleaner now, because the Magnesium can reach most everything!

The floors in our house are laminate and carpet. We also have a few area rugs in the great room. The Magnesium rolls from carpet to laminate or laminate to carpet with the greatest of ease. This, my friends, is a huge life saver.

I have an other popular name brand vacuum that is really bulky and heavy and I used to have to pick the entire machine up when going from one surface to another…not with the Magnesium!

I’m sure you’re thinking, “Well Molly, don’t you sweep the laminate??” Nope! I sure don’t. The suction power is so mighty that I have not swept a single surface in my house since I got this vacuum cleaner. In case you’re keeping tally, that’s yet another benefit in my book.

The cord! Oh, how glorious the Magnesium cord is. I can vacuum our entire great room, dining room, and breakfast nook without unplugging the vacuum. Now that all of our outlets are covered for Julia’s safety, not having to unplug and replug often is a huge time saver.

Here’s a secret. I hate cleaning. I like things to be tidy, but I really can’t stand cleaning. The Oreck Magnesium makes vacuuming the entire house a breeze, and maybe even a little fun.

I absolutely love my Oreck and don’t plan on ever owning an other vacuum cleaner. :)

    Oh my! I might be in love with your review and this vacuum. I have gone through 2 cheaper vacuums this past year and neither had met my expectations. I also have a mixture of tile, carpet, and laminate (which I hate sweeping)…. This could be exactly what I’ve been looking for! :-)

    I am still on my quest for the perfect vacuum. I have to use 2 different vacuums in my house; one for the carpet and one for the hard surfaces. Maybe I’ll get a chance to try this one out! I liked Oreck on FB.

      The Oreck vacuum is one of their lightest models ever and uses a HEPA bag, which they believe is superior to bagless technology.

    I like that there are smaller motors closer to the floor surface to allow greater suction and I LOVE that the motors also break up larger pieces of dirt! I owned an Oreck many, many years ago and loved it even then. Thanks for the opportunity to win!

    Okay, I neeeed this vacuum. Ours is scary and smelly and makes funny noises. I wish I were joking. I love that it works well on different floor levels and rugs – we have a big one in our living room where the Mini Athlete usually plays. It’s always in need of a good vacuuming!

    I have been looking for a new vacuum for a while because all of the dust out here has RUINED my current one! The Magnesium looks like the exact one that I would need. We have tile and carpet so I love the fact that it can change surfaces easily…especially with the switch on the back!

    Thanks, Molly!

    I learned the Magnesium has twin LED lights so you can better see the area you are vacuuming. Cool.

    There’s a quick switch on the back of the Magnesium that helps you quickly switch from floors to carpet. What a great way to save your back, not having to bend over to switch modes!!
