Famed for its irons, kettles and toasters, Tefal has launched its first ever range of vacuum cleaners – the Air Force cordless handstick (pictured) and the Clean & Steam.

The Clean & Steam is a 2-in-1 appliance, which boasts forwards and backwards cleaning.

The new line-up features ‘advanced cyclonic technology’, which provides powerful suction and captures 99.98 per cent of dust particles. The suction technology also allows the air inside the vacuum to spin at very high speeds. The centrifugal force causes dust particles to swirl to the edge and fall downward where they are captured in the dust container.

The air then passes through a filtration system to remove finer dust particles, with clean air being blown back into the room.

The Air Force vacuum cleaners start from around £229.99, while the Clean & Steam retails at £299.
