The Dyson brand is associated with many products, but some of these deviate away from the standard upright vacuum design. Dyson satisfies fans of the canister vacuum with its DC21 Stowaway model. This vacuum cleaner utilizes a canister set up and equips it with all the popular features that have made Dyson so desirable. The unit maintains constant and even suction power, even after a long period of use and comes with a durable design many consumers love.
The Dyson DC21 Stowaway canister vacuum comes with 220 air watts of power and a power cord that measures over 16 feet long. This model is also equipped with a 4/9 gallon collection bin and conveniently compact design that is ideal for storage in smaller spaces. Dyson has also backed up its DC21 Stowaway with a five year warranty. Most consumers find they do not need to use the warranty, but it is there just in case.
The DC21 is packaged with a hard floor tool that extends for use on stairs and elevated surfaces. An on and off brush bar enhances cleaning potential along with the lifetime HEPA filter. Through the HEPA system, the Dyson DC21 can remove a great deal of particles and allergens from the air sucked in through the vacuum.
What did customers who bought Dyson’s DC21 Stowaway canister vacuum like?

What did Dyson’s DC21 Stowaway customers dislike?
- The Dyson DC21 is constructed primarily of plastic pieces. Over time, these can become damaged or cracked and hinder the vacuum’s ability to collect dust securely.
- Some consumers found that the hose accessory included was a problematic weak point. It would sometimes break apart and become unusable after a short period of time.
- Not everyone likes the canister vacuum design. Some consumers complained that the DC21 in particular had trouble rolling over carpeting and other obstacles, possibly due to the small wheels attached to the canister base.
