A product review and giveaway- BLACK+DECKER Pivot Vac, the Best Handheld Vacuum!


Truth to be told, I hate cleaning! I mean who doesn't, right? If you have a family, live in an older home or have pet(s), expect to clean a lot more! In my case, I don't have any pets, so no pets' hair for me to clean but I live in an older home with my husband and a young son, so trust me when I say I have a lot of cleaning to do everyday. I am not greedy, I just want The Best Handheld Vacuum available in the market, is that too much to ask for?

I have always wanted a new handheld vacuum because I have ruined the old one a few years ago. Okay, I have to admit, I was having one of those "what was I thinking moment?" when I decided to vacuum some rice that my little one has dropped on the carpet once while he was eating by himself. It ruined the vacuum forever because of trapped moisture from those itsy bitsy rice. Also, the odor that emits from the vacuum smells horrible! Even if the vacuum works, trust me, you don't want to use it ever again. So take it from me, my lovelies, even if you have the best handheld vacuum in the world, remember don't vacuum food that contains liquid/ moisture ever!


So you can imagine my excitement when I receive my fabulous cordless, handheld BLACK+DECKER pivot vac!


The sleek and beautiful BLACK+DECKER Pivot Vac!

Since receiving my cordless hand vac, I have been making it work hard around my house!

Case in point: If you live in an older home like me (my house is about 40 years old), you are likely to get dust very often. Our home constantly oozes an excessive amount of dust even though I just cleaned the floors a few days ago. I am not talking about a thin layer of dust but monster dust bunnies type of dust every other day. It just drives me nuts!

I hate dragging out our big old vacuum so I always pick them up with a few wet paper towels for quick clean-ups. No more wet paper towels to clean my dusty floors now, I will use my BLACK+DECKER Pivot Vac to get rid of the dust balls in my house from now on.

Case in point: My 7-year-old likes to make art and a messy eater to boot so there is always tiny pieces of papers and food crumbs lying under the dining room table all the time. With my new handy handheld vacuumcleaning everyday house messes is not a chore anymore!

Case in point: Oh, did I mention that I have long, thick hair? It was a blessing until you need to pick them up on a constant basis. Now, with my new cordless hand vac, picking up hair from the floor is a breeze. 

So, what makes this nifty little appliance stands apart from other handheld vacs?

• Innovative, patented nozzle pivots to clean up high, down low and even in tight spaces.

• Its high performance motor provides superior suction capability when compared to other BLACK+DECKER cordless hand vacs.

• The cyclonic action spins dust and debris away from the filter keeping suction power strong.

• 3-stage filtration system with a pleated filter design offers the highest level of filtration to help prevent clogs and improve air exhaust.

• Wide mouth design scoops up large debris.


I just love its sleek and beautiful design!


Designed with an extendable nozzle to vacuum those hard to reach places.


 Comes with a handy little brush for upholstery cleaning, etc.


Easy on and off button, just slide forward to 1 to turn it on and slide back to position 0 to turn it off.


Mini icon to show where the pivot lock button is located.


 A closer look at the pivot lock button.


Just push the bowl release button to access the filter area.


Simply push the release button to empty dirt.


Slide out nozzle to reach those tight nooks and crannies. 

As I mentioned earlier, there is always shreds of papers (besides dust, food crumbs and hair) on our floors. I made a short video to show you how well my new cordless hand vac works!

See how effortless my husband maneuver the vac?

Overall, I am pleased with my wonderful new handheld vacuum! It's beautifully designed, lightweight and most importantly has strong suction power. I like that it is still going strong even after 20 minutes of vacuuming (I haven't tried beyond 20 minutes yet). Very user-friendly, convenient and powerful, what's not to love about this thoughtfully designed appliance?


Stop cleaning, start living!

  24. The two places we would use this the most are the kitchen and the foyer to our home. The kitchen is obvious, but our foyer is always littered with leaves and dirt trudged in from outside.

  36. This seems like a really great handheld! And I love the sleek look! Checked out the product info and it seems really impressive. I'd definitely used this on the couch to pick up crumbs and along the walls the pick up pet hair. We have two dogs that are non-shedding but they still manage to leave a little hair behind, especially in summer. Oh and your tip about not vacuuming up anything with moisture is spot on- I ruined our last handheld that way! And I've been missing it ever since so I'd LOVE to win this!!
