HOME APPLIANCE TRENDS: Oreck

The Magnesium RS from Oreck is claimed to be the lightest bagged upright vacuum cleaner on the UK market.

It also promises to be durable, as the magnesium frame has a six-year guarantee. With 100mph airflow, combined with a roller brush rotating at more than 7,000rpm, it draws dirt into a 10-litre bag.

Said to capture 99 per cent of dirt, it automatically seals dust in. The self-cleaning system also keeps the dust locked inside making it easier to clean. It is available for around £299.99.
