Hardwood floors have become increasingly popular in UK homes, and the stick vacuum has gradually emerged as the cleaning option of choice
It is slimmer than the relatively bulky upright vacuum, and it does a great job of cleaning without the extra weight of the bag or cumbersome profile of an upright vacuum. One of the least expensive stick vacuums is the VonHaus 600W Corded – 2 in 1 Upright & Handheld Stick Vacuum Cleaner.
In this VonHaus vacuum review, I will be reviewing this 2-in-1 stick vacuum, highlighting the features and revealing its benefits and drawbacks. It features a 1.3 L tank that is easy to detach and empty.
It also comes with a HEPA Sponge Filtration system to lock in any small particles. It is an affordable vacuum cleaner that is both practical and versatile.
Today, technology has advanced to the stage where stick vacuums have no problem cleaning almost any type of surface. The VonHaus stick vacuum excels at cleaning hard surfaces, but it can also handle carpets without a fuss.

VonHaus Vacuum Review: Design and Appearance
The VonHaus 600W 2-in-1 stick vacuum is an excellent looking vacuum. It might not be something to be hung up as a decoration, but it comes with a sleek, vintage style and combines old-school looks with modern functionality.
It comes with a metallic telescopic handle that allows you to adjust the height of the cleaner to suit your needs. It comes in handy, especially when you are cleaning the stairs or floors.
The telescopic handle is not a common feature on stick vacuums and comes in only more expensive types of vacuum cleaners. Hence, I was pleasantly surprised to find this design on this relatively cheap stick vacuum.
Aside from the telescopic handle, the vacuum is made of hard, durable plastic that I believe will last for a long time. Overall, the design looks and feels great.
The only gripe I had with the design is that the build quality in certain parts leaves much to be desired. For example, toward the end of the vacuum, at the point where the head is connected to other attachments, it seems somewhat fragile.
This is just my observation and might be nothing to be overly worried about. Moreover, there haven’t been many complaints about the vacuum parts breaking easily.
Additionally, the handle is detachable; so you can convert the stick vacuum into a handheld vacuum. It truly is a 2-in-1 vacuum.
I found the ability to convert it handy. Unlike other vacuums that have to be removed from the ‘body’ of the unit, you don’t need to do that with this vacuum.
The vacuum comes with several accessories. These include:
- An upholstery tool
- A combination of crevice and brush tool
- A flexible hose
All of these accessories come in handy and enhance your experience with this vacuum cleaner.
VonHaus 2-in-1 Stick Vacuum: Usability
With regards to usability, the VonHaus 600W 2-in-1 stick vacuum is very comfortable to use. Whether you choose to use it as a stick vacuum or a detached handheld vacuum, you will likely find it as convenient to use as I found others did. I believe the design contributes significantly to usability.
I noticed during my research that this vacuum cleaner lacks a swivel head. I am used to swivelling heads in my vacuum cleaner, and I found the lack of one disappointing. The vacuum makes up for this, at least to an extent, by coming with a pair of wheels on the bottom of the head.

As with many corded vacuum cleaners, the cord tends to get in the way during use. The 6-meter length makes it easily tangled. However, users found it comfortable enough for use.
Despite occasional tangling, the 6-meter range is enough to reach areas without having to plug in the vacuum in a different wall power outlet.
VonHaus Stick Vacuum Cleaner: Performance
Stick vacuums are excellent choices for hardwood floors, and the VonHaus 600W 2-in-1 stick vacuum is no exception. It performs excellently on hard flooring. Surprisingly, it also works well on other surfaces like rugs and carpets. It uses a HEPA and sponge filtration system to trap any particles.
Suction is surprisingly powerful in this vacuum. The vacuum had no problems with picking up fine and heavy dirt particles in the home.
If you have a pet that tends to track mud in, you will discover that the vacuum quickly sucks up the mud, pet litter, and other dirty particles in the house. However, since it lacks a motorized brush, it will be difficult for the vacuum to pick fur from your carpet or rugs.
One problem that I usually have with bag-less stick vacuums is the speed at which the dirt bin fills up. With the VonHaus 600W 2-in-1 stick vacuum, however, the dirt canister didn’t fill too quickly.
The only problem with the repository, from my research, is that it gets filthy quickly. Therefore, you will likely need to clean it often.
The VonHaus 600W 2-in-1 stick vacuum offers excellent value for money. It is aggressively priced and comes at a lower price than many similarly performing models on the market.
It comes with a 2-year warranty.
VonHaus Vacuum Review: Final Thoughts
At first glance, the VonHaus 600W 2-in-1 stick vacuum doesn’t appear much different from other vacuum cleaners on the market. However, it offers excellent value. It is one of the best performing stick vacuums in its price range.
It is also a highly versatile vacuum cleaner. Overall, it is an excellent vacuum cleaner that will serve you well over the years. The lack of a motorized brush is a downside, and it is quite noisy.
Aside from those flaws, it is an impressive offering. The lightweight and slim design make it an excellent alternative for those that have back problems or other limitations.
