Gave this to my husband as a Valentines present (it is red), as I was fed up of him moaning about the state of the bathroom floor! I have been informed that it does a great job on tiled floors, I have also got him to progress to carpets, just as good. All the extra attachments it comes with are very useful too, no areas unreachable with this little gem. The only thing he has moaned about is that his handle wasn't green!

Great for hard floors but not carpets”
Pros: excellent for hard floors, very long power cable, good for under furniture, easy to empty, small size for storage Cons: hopeless with fluff and hair on carpets, I found it very hard to detach and reattach handle if want to use as a hand-held

So pleased I read the great reviews and bought this product. It really is fantastic and vacuuming doesn't seem such a chore. I particularly like the long hose - so easy for stairs and the tools which reach every tricky place I've tried such as skirting boards and crevices in kitchen areas.

Chilli is hot!”
by Mrs Colledge
Well worth waiting for this to be delivered - have just buzzed round the house although it was bought to be kept upstairs. With a shoulder injury making carrying my 'big' vacuum around increasingly difficult I decided to invest in the Chilli after reading other reviews. I am quite tall and the extending handle is more than long enough for comfort - it's been powerful enough to cope from diningroom to bedroom and small enough to fit into the places I usually have to brush first! Well worth the money.

A compact little cleaner with lots of power ....”
by Mrs Jackson
I've been looking for a compact handheld cleaner for ages that works equally well on the stairs and in the car ... And I've found it - This machine has great suction and a good selection of attachments - the handle to convert it to an upright is a bonus. Excellent cleaning power at a great price.

The Chilli vacuum arrived this morning, and I am delighted with it. It is tiny yet easily cleared the extensive mess left by 5 teenagers after a sleepover, coping with rugs and hard flooring.The lead is long enough to do each floor without having to swap sockets. My back is pain free because it is so light to carry and use, even on the stairs. It IS noisy - but heard phone ring. Simple to empty too. It is stored in an otherwise uselessly thin gap in my kitchen - a miracle. Recommended for small living spaces - in this case a 2 bed cottage. Excellent value for money.

I have a Hunter vac which I use for stairs at home and take to the caravan for the carpets there. I'm not too good at kneeling down, and have often wished the Hunter had a detachable handle. When I saw the Ewbank Chilli it seemed just the job - fairly powerful, detachable/attachable handle, and small enough to use/store in the caravan. When I saw it was reduced, AND I had a £5 voucher to use AND there was free delivery, I ordered straightaway. It said 5 days delivery - it came next day! It is very efficient, very light and small - just what I have been looking for. It is great!

A little gem of a helper”
by Helen Marilyn
Bought this cleaner as I have a bad back and already it's proved to be of help. Excellent results and what I was impressed with is the 1000 watt motor. Would recommend this to anyone, well done Ewbank for a little 'un you are very thorough!

WELL DONE LAKELAND”
I bought this little cleaner for our static caravan. It is perfect for the caravan and powerful enough to clean all the carpets and flooring efficiently. As a bonus it has several useful attachments and it all fits in the wardrobe.

Great for spiders!”
I just had to write this - this vacuum has just sucked up a house-spider the size of my open hand without a quibble! I was even brave to go quite close to it because the force is so strong.

Excellent little vacuum cleaner”
Recently bought this in the sale, for the price it is an excellent purchase! Mainly bought it for the 2 flights of stairs in the house to save carrying the big hoover up and down. It is very light and the suction is great - equal to my big hoover! Like other reviews say, it is quite loud compared to a normal big vacuum cleaner but I can live with that for the amount of time it is in use. Great for whizzing round the laminate floor and also for getting into the smaller spaces that ordinarily you would have to move furniture to reach. Would highly recommend!

brilliant little vacuum”
by Mrs Davis
This is a brilliant little vacuum cleaner. I had a hand held rechargeable vac but the charge didn't last long enough to clean my touring caravan so decided look on faithful Lakeland website and found this amazing little vacuum which I have used in the house as well worth every penny nice long lead I knew when I saw the name Ewbank it was going to be good and it didn't disappoint.

Fantastic lightweight vac”
I wanted a lighter vac and this vac is perfect. The suction is as strong as my old hoover and not only is it lighter but because the pole is adjustable I can make it shorter so it is easier to lift up and down the stairs, with or without the carry strap. The 'chilli stalk' green handle is now black. It is easy to swap between upright, handheld and the attachments and the filter is simple to clean. I would recommend it.

Chilli Hand Held Vac”
by Linda Preece
I have had my hand held Ewbank Chilli Vac for 3 weeks now and i can honestly say that it is a really good little Vac, perfect for the tiled floor in my conservatory and also perfect for the car. The accessories are very good it is very light and for the price a real bargain. It is very light and stores away easily in a confined space, Excellent buy.

So pleased with this nifty little vac. It is ideal for someone like myself who is unable to use a full size cleaner. I have tried a popular hand held, but couldn't hold the trigger and had to keep putting it down as holding it for more than 2mins hurt me, unlike this cleaner where I can just push the handle upright. I would highly recommend it to anyone who has hand and arm problems like myself, and what a super price it is too!

what a surprise”
I didn't expect this little vacuum to be as good as it is. I have had many vacuums, and am super critical, but this is a delight to use. It is so easy,light, quick and efficient. I've abandoned my very expensive German job and now whizz round with this. And I love the colour ! (the green handle was to represent the stalk of the chilli) All my friends are off to buy one. Good for you Lakeland.

Small & Powerfull”
Great little vacuum with a long lead and lots of attachments. Actually feels like its going to take off when you hold it & turn it on! Bit disappointed that the handle on mine is black not green to reflect chillies as described :-( Other than that its great and my 4 year old is also happy to use!

Fantastic powerful little hoover. Ideal for flats, stairs and other awkward small spaces. Very light and easy to push around. Bit noisy - but the hoovering will be done in a jiffy. Really pleased with it.

Great little machine!”
Received my Ewbank vac this morning and gave it a go ,straight away. Very easy to put together, very light to hold and move about. It is, however, VERY noisy, as other reviewers have said. If you have pets, don't use it in the same room as them! I was surprised how much hair it had picked up when I removed the filter. Please, Ewbank, bring out a quieter version!
