Best and Most Popular Dyson Knockoff Stick Vacuums: Are they Worth It?

Dyson has built itself a grand reputation as a premier vacuum cleaner manufacturer. Considering the technology that Dyson implements into its products, Dyson has certainly earned its reputation. Dyson stick vacuums include features such as whole-machine filtration, radial cyclones, handheld conversion and mess-free bin emptying. Some models even offer variable-speed suction, performance reports on an LCD screen and up to 1 hour’s worth of runtime.

Most Popular Dyson Knockoff Vacuums

We know it’s cliché, but imitation truly is the sincerest form of flattery. Lesser-known stick vacuum brands often copy Dyson’s vacuum technology as a way to get a leg up in the industry. We don’t blame them. Dyson stick vacuums are innovative, reliable and efficient.

Many of these fledgling brands make their vacuums look so similar that you often can’t tell at first glance they aren’t a Dyson. Just because they look like a Dyson and share many of Dyson’s features, does it mean they perform like a Dyson stick vacuum?

Before we reviewed them, we were a little skeptical about these knockoff vacuum cleaners. However, after reviewing nine stick vacuums from eight different makers, our overall consensus is that off-brand Dysons aren’t too shabby. For budget-restricted consumers, these stick vacs provide much of what Dyson offers at a fraction of the price.
