Today I am looking at the Shark DuoClean Rocket Corded Ultralight which is one of the more affordable, but high quality upright vacuums on the market right now.
From Shark, you know you are getting a lot of power, a lot of features and also you will be getting a lot of suction for your money.
The Stand Out Features
Shark’s DuoClean Technology is what makes this vacuum cleaner so powerful. Basically, it has two brush rolls, one for getting in deep and another that really finishes off a carpet or hard floors perfectly.
These work together, along with the powerful motor to make sure that no matter how fine and stuck in the debris is or how large, yucky and sticky, it is no match for the Shark Rocket DuoClean vacuum cleaner.
No Front Wall = No More Pushing Dirt Around
One thing that is really cool and unlike a standard upright vacuum is how there is no front wall on the vacuum. You know when you are trying to clean and the front of the vacuum just keeps pushing what you are trying to clean up away? Well, this does not do that, so even larger things like cookies, small toys and anything else the kids like to leave lying around will be taken care of.
Versatile For Floor to Ceiling Cleaning
The Shark Rocket DuoClean Corded Ultralight is one very versatile vacuum. For example, we have a large coffee table in the middle of the room and two large sofas that have an area that the kids love to put food!
The head of the vacuum can twist so it can get around table legs and you can even take the main head off so that you can get into those tough to reach areas like under the couch.
This also means that you can lift the vacuum up nice and high so you can take care of cobwebs and any dust that is on the curtains. Shark really have done a great job in making sure this can take care of the whole house.
The best example of the versatility is the way it can transform into a compact hand vac. This is something that you will use far more than you would think. The kids got crumbs all over their bed? Use the hand vac mode to easily get rid of it. It works so well and allows you to use this vacuum to take care of the whole house.
LED Lights and Lots of Accessories
One thing that I really liked was the LED lights, you may think that these are pointless, but they do let you see exactly what you are vacuuming up and more importantly if you have missed a spot so this is a very welcome feature.
Of course, you cannot have a Shark vacuum and not have some accessories to play with. You fellow dog owners (or cat) are going to love the Pet Multi-Tool that comes with this Shark Rocket vacuum cleaner.
There is nothing worse that vacuuming the living room, you think are done and then you notice all the dog hair that is still on the sofa.
How does this stuff get welded onto every surface in the house! Well, the Pet Multi-Tool is designed to get that unwanted pet hair away. I used this to get rid of pet hair on the sofa, the carpet and even our hardwood floor in the hallway.
Along with the Pet Multi-Tool and dusting brush, you also get a Crevice Tool, you can use this with the full stick or with the hand vac, I found that using this with the hand vac was great, especially for getting down the side of the sofa and other hard to reach areas that the kids think I do not know about!
Even at the lower price point, the Shark Rocket DuoClean Corded Ultralight Upright Vacuum has some serious power, I have not come across anything that this could not handle. Not only that, taking care of it could not be any easier.
It takes up very little space and it even comes with a wall mount that you can use if you want. Once you have finished your vacuuming, you hold it over your garbage can, release and all the yucky stuff falls right in, it could not be any easier to take care of.
What Are Other People Saying?
Before I tested this vacuum for myself, I went to the internet so I could get a general idea of what people thought. Like most other Shark vacuums, people are very happy with this.
Most people praise the light weight of this vacuum, along with the powerful suction. Of course, the way that this can handle carpets, hard floor and every area of the house is something people are really praising.
You can look and look, but you will not find many people with negative things to say about the Shark Rocket DuoClean. What I found was that this vacuum is a huge hit with people who want that extra power, but do not want to pay the price of a Dyson.
What we have here is one of those rare products that pretty much everyone seems to love. When I read the hundreds of positive reviews, it made my expectations that much higher for this vacuum and I can honestly tell you that Shark has actually exceeded them!

Could Anything Be Better?
Of course, no product is 100 percent perfect, but I do think that the Shark DuoClean Rocket Corded Ultralight Upright Vacuum comes pretty close, especially considering the price point. The dust cup that collects the dirt is not the biggest, but at the same time, it is so quick and easy to empty, you will never really notice.
As you can tell from the name the vacuum is corded, but the power cord is very, very long meaning that you can do a large area without having to change power outlets.
If you're not satisfied with the Rocket Duo there is the alternative Shark Freestyle Cordless.
The Shark Rocket DuoClean Corded is one of the best value vacuum cleaners you can get right now. Shark has done a great job with this. It is very powerful, which makes vacuuming even larger carpets and hard floors much quicker and easier.
With the way you can use the different tools, there is not an area of your house that you cannot reach with this. If you want high powered cleaning, but at a low price, you are going to struggle to beat this vacuum!
