Kenmore – trusted in the homes of more than 100 million Americans.

The Kenmore Elite 21814 canister vacuum delivers ultra-powerful cleaning on carpets and bare floors.

powerful
This is the most powerful canister yet. The power head it a little heavy, but this machine rocks.

Not so sure
I have had several Kenmore vacuums over the years and thought by stepping up I would get a great vacuum. It works wonderful on wood floors. However, on high nap carpet it leaves marks no matter what I do and it is extremely hard to move over the carpet. Good carpet and good vacuum should be a good combination and that is not how it works.

Quick, Quiet, Powerful

Both the canister as well as the head are very quiet, yet the suction is tremendous. The quick change 'crossover' head is a really great feature if your house is like ours, where we have a split of carpet and hard floors. I do find it odd the hose attaches to the canister without an elbow, so I worry about the electrical connections wearing out at that point.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

the Elite Canister

I've owned at least 6 Kenmore canisters over the last 34 years with the Elite being the latest. I just received it on 11/7/14. I vacuum daily as I have two large shedding dogs, so they get used like a commercial vacuum. I like the vacuum except I miss that it doesn't have the 360 rotation on the hose, so I'm hoping it doesn't tear at the area where it connects to the vacuum. It seems to droop at this area and put strain on the hose. Also, as I've read on other reviews, the power head does drag on carpet even with it on the highest height level. That said, the suction is great and only time will tell how it holds up. My last Kenmore was a turquoise one for 229.00 and it was falling apart within a few months. ( plastic pieces fell off and the handle release mechanism kept popping off, so I removed it and had to deal with a wobbly handle when stored.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great Vacuum!!!

This is an awesome vacuum.  I had the old model that lasted 12years and had some fleas in the design.  However the new model has improved the design flaws in the old model I had.  The suction and accessories are way better too.  I would recommend this vacuum.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Good vacuum

I have to say that for the price I paid for this vacuum it was well worth it. I love everything about it except the release handle button on the top. It's kind of hard to do with one hand. But otherwise it's great. Good suction on high and low. The canister is heavy to go up and down stairs but I only use this on my second floor. I would recommend this vacuum.
