On this page, you will find the buying guide to the best electric broom of 2022, updated in July. Read on to find out how to choose the ideal model based on features, main functionalities, and also based on price range.
When you need to clean the house, if you use the broom you fear that some specks of dust may escape while if you use a vacuum cleaner you may struggle more due to its heaviness. It is therefore possible to opt for an excellent middle ground by choosing a vertical electric broom.
In today’s buying guide I will make you aware of all the parameters that you need to take into consideration before buying one of the best electric brooms, in order to make an informed purchase.
What it is and what it is for
A vertical electric broom combines the technology of vacuum cleaners with the ergonomic characteristics of a normal broom, being a small vacuum cleaner that is much lighter and more manageable than the common ones for towing.
Even if it is a little less powerful, it is not for this reason that it is inefficient.
Obviously, you have to choose it according to your personal needs, as there are various types: with a bag, without a bag, with a battery or connected to electricity.
It is very suitable especially for those who need a tool to use every day to clean the house quickly.
Initially, the products belonging to this category were unable to compete with traditional vacuum cleaners, but over the years they have been increasingly perfected and today many models are able to obtain highly satisfactory results, capable of “winning”, thanks not only to an excellent quality/price ratio, on direct competitors.
Those who use an electric broom can enjoy countless advantages, first of all, low consumption of electricity. It is also very practical and easy to handle, able to reach even the most hidden areas thanks to its small size.
How to choose an electric broom
We take into consideration every aspect of electric brooms: only in this way is it possible to buy an excellent device to use at home.
By continuing to read you will be able to discover all the features and functions that a good electric broom must have.
Dimensions and structure
Almost all the electric brooms that can be found on the market today have a compact and manageable structure.
However, care must always be taken to ensure that the product conforms to your habits and especially to the size of the house and the surfaces.
If you have a large house it is always better to opt for a compact electric broom, so that you can easily move from one room to another.
The purchase of an electric broom is generally evaluated with the intention of using it every day, so it is important to choose a model that is not bulky so that you can keep it in order to always have it at hand.
The dimensions play an important role even when we do not use the device: in almost all cases inside the package we find a charging station to be fixed to the wall that allows us to store the device when it is not in use. Generally, the more expensive models are sold together with a stand to exhibit and are able to stand alone, an important and useful function during cleaning operations.
In any case, it is not possible to evaluate only the dimensions carried by the object, but its weight is also of fundamental importance. The lighter the product, the less effort it will take to transport it to the different corners of the house.
I noticed that in the 2022 market the design of the electric brooms is practically identical for each model: there is a rotating brush, the hose, and the machine body (i.e. the motor of the device).
Autonomy and power supply
As already mentioned, the electric broom can be powered by two different systems: with a rechargeable battery or by means of an electric socket.
The most convenient is obviously the wireless one, but in this case, you have to pay close attention to the type of battery mounted, as this is what power depends on.
The battery can be lithium-ion or nickel. The power remains constant as regards the first type, while the nickel ones tend to decrease it when the charge is about to run out.
In addition, unlike lithium batteries, the charging capacity of nickel batteries tends to become less over time. This makes the price of the electric broom with lithium batteries slightly higher.
In any case, the autonomy varies from the battery and the power of the device, but also from the program used: starting from medium quality models you can choose between Eco, Standard, and Max suction; the max mode also allows you to vacuum up the debris of 1/2 cm, but the residual autonomy will be equal to 10 minutes.
When choosing a cordless electric broom, attention must also be paid to autonomy.
To ensure that the desire for comfort is satisfied, it is necessary that the charge lasts long enough to allow the cleaning to be completed, then evaluate the times according to the needs.
In other cases, it is good to opt for a corded electric broom, certainly less practical, but without autonomy problems.
Autonomy of electric brooms by price range:
- Low price range: 20-30 minutes
- Average price range: 20-35 minutes
- High price range: 30-45 minutes
In addition, some models are equipped with a removable battery, very important to consider, both to extend the autonomy (just buy a second one and replace it as needed), and for any malfunctions.
Suction power (expressed in Watts)
The power with which an electric broom equipped with a socket works is expressed by the value in Watts. The watts of an electric broom vary from 200 to 500 and roughly indicate the power of the device.
One of the best models on the market proposed by Dyson has a power of 545 Watts, a mid-range model proposed by Tineco 450 Watts and an economical model from Ultenic has 260 Watts.
At this precise point, we must also consider the revolutions per minute performed by the brush and all the suction modes present. If you have carpets, some electric brooms automatically adjust the power to the maximum in the presence of carpets.
There are basically two main types of electric broom:
- With bag;
- With cyclonic tank.
Let’s see in detail the fundamental differences between one and the other category.
As for the electric brooms with bags, these are slightly cheaper than the others and have a greater capacity to contain dirt.
However, it is necessary to consider the lower energy efficiency compared to the counterparts equipped with a cyclonic tank. In fact, electric brooms with bags require a higher amount of energy to work at the same power as those that use the other technology.
The cyclonic tank electric brooms, even if they do not require the additional expense of the bags, must obviously be emptied. Furthermore, since they are less capacious, this procedure must be repeated more often. In any case, it is a very simple and quick operation.
Both types, like all vacuum cleaners, are equipped with a filtering system consisting of two levels: the first dedicated to blocking larger debris and the second aimed at containing fine dust.
Many high-level electric brooms also have a third filter: the HEPA filter, useful for retaining all types of particles. This is especially the case with electric brooms with bags.
Cordless electric brooms have a tank that collects dirt and dust. The capacity of the tank is generally expressed in Liters and indicates exactly how much dirt it can contain: I would say that 0.3 L or 0.5 L of capacity are more than enough. In any case, on the market, there are numerous variants and alternatives so as to choose the ideal capacity based on the square meters to be cleaned.
It must also be said that the right maintenance must be carried out: therefore every 10 days the container must be emptied and cleaned (if indicated by the manufacturer also washed with water and soap).
Smart screen and functionality
The best electric brooms are the smart or dated ones on the screen.
- Electric brooms with screen: The screen, generally inserted in the main body of the device, shows us all the main information during use. We can see at a glance the remaining autonomy, we can check and adjust the suction mode and view when to carry out maintenance or malfunction warnings.
- Smart electric brooms: Some electric brooms are equipped with WiFi connectivity: through a smartphone or tablet app we can control the commands and the suction power directly from the phone, access the cleaning logs, receive updates or alerts from the manufacturer and monitor the status maintenance of the device.
Personally, I prefer those with a screen for everyday cleaning: in fact, holding the phone to control the electric broom is uncomfortable. However, the electric brooms app allows us to carry out more precise maintenance, puts us in direct contact with assistance, and so on.
I tested many electric brooms and some had the functionality of washing floors. Practically inside the package, we can find a small magnetic mop to be hooked behind the main brush: this mop is a small water tank with a microfiber cloth underneath that allows us to freshen up the floors making the cleaning operation more hygienic.
It is good to specify that they do not wash the floors, to carry out that single task it is good to rely on the best floor cleaners.
Accessories included in the package
Inside the package, we can find some extra accessories. The most common are:
- 2-in-1 nozzle: To vacuum crumbs or to remove dust;
- Mini Brush: For vacuuming car interiors, sofas, curtains, or bed;
- Spare parts: HEPA filter / Additional prefilter, second central brush;
- Vertical stand: Vertical charging base to be displayed or placed in a closet;
- Magnetic washing mop: Only on some models.
