2. BEST GREEN BUY: MIELE S4212 ECOLINE
If you want to go green as you clean, this is the model for you. The Ecoline's 1,300W motor is smaller than its siblings', but its effectiveness isn't compromised. It is particularly good at reaching into corners and alongside walls.br/> £169.99br/> miele.co.uk
3. BEST LIQUID CLEANER: MORPHY RICHARDS SPILLMASTER
The compact, non-electrical hand-held Spillmaster can be attached to most UK cylinder and upright vacuums to clean liquid spills. It is fantastically easy to use and maintain

4. BEST SUCTION: NUMATIC HETTY
The much-celebrated "Henry" is the builder's choice of vacuum cleaner, which speaks volumes as to the punishment it can endure and the power of the suction; the same goes for this female version.

10. BEST ALL-ROUNDER: DYSON DC25 ANIMAL
Dyson's name is almost as synonymous with vacuum cleaning as Hoover. The motorised brush bar of the D25 picks up even ground-in dirt and pet hair. Because it sits on a ball, it manoeuvres around furniture and obstacles like a dream.
