Oreck Magnesium Vacuum Givewaway... | A Bowl Full of Lemons

Oreck Magnesium Vacuum Givewaway…

oreck2

Today I am so thrilled to be giving away a fabulous vacuum cleaner.   If you have never heard of the Oreck Magnesium,  you will want to try one out after I share my experience with you.  I was gifted an Oreck to try out for a few weeks,  review it & give my honest opinion about it.

I have been testing out the Oreck for the last 3 months.  I previously owned a Dyson. I used it for the last 6 years and loved it.  It treated me well.  BUT after the first time I switched over to the Oreck, I was in shock at the dirt the Dyson missed on my carpet.  There was so much leftover.  I was sold from day 1. It really is a top of the line vacuum cleaner (made in the USA) that actually works well.

There are only 2 settings, Low and High.  The vacuum adjusts on its own, to any type of flooring.  You don’t have to keep switching back and forth from settings. My most favorite part of this vacuum is that it glides easily on my high shag carpet. The dyson struggled with that.

The Oreck Magnesium is so lightweight (7.7 pounds) and easy to carry up and down the stairs by its large handle.

The one thing I was apprehensive about was switching from a canister to a bag.  I actually like the bag more, especially since it’s a HEPPA filter. There is literally no mess (unlike the canister which leaves residual dirt) and the bag holds a LOT of dirt. I’ve only had to switch out the bag once. So we need to switch it out about every 3 months or so.  We vacuum a lot and have 2 pets.

All you have to do is pull it out with the white tag and put in the new one. Its so easy!

Every time I vacuum, my carpet looks brand new again. It makes those beautiful vacuum marks that I can’t live without. <3

 It truly is a beautiful vacuum and totally worth the money.  I only wish I had purchased it a long time ago.  This vacuum cleaner had me at hello!!

I also received the Ultimate Handheld Vacuum Cleaner. I use it on our stairs and on small areas that need cleaned up (crumbs, etc). It’s a powerful, portable and lightweight handheld vacuum perfect for above-the-floor cleaning, includes a 20 ft. power cord, five specialized cleaning tools, and an installed HEPA filter.

    We just rescued a dog and I love that it has a bag! I hate all the dust and fur that blows around when I try to empty the container on my vacuum (and who wants to run out side in the winter to empty the canister in the garbage bin??

    The Saniseal® system automatically seals shut, locking the dirt in the disposable filter bag. Changing bags is effortless

  68. Niki Holsinger says:

    The Oreck has a 7 year warranty and 5 annual tune-ups!!

  69. Shelley Welch says:

    I can’t believe it’s only 7.7 lbs. We’re moving into a new house with 2 sets of stairs and 3 levels….this would be a breeze to carry up and down.

  74. I had an Oreck, which I LOVED, until I accidentally sucked up something I shouldn’t have and burned out the motor. :( Now I’m stuck with some old clunker castoff from my father-in-law. I love that the Oreck Magnesium RS adjusts to different types of flooring automatically.

  75. Wow, love that there are only 2 settings and that it will adjust to floor on its own. so cool.

  76. I love that its oly 7.7lbs. No more putting off vacuuming upstairs because lugging the giant vacuum up is more of a chore than the chore itself.

  77. I would LOVE LOVE LOVE this vacuum! I have hardwood floors and this would be awesome for getting stuff out of the cracks…something I deal with all the time! And it’s lightweight…we have a 2-story home! And it’s wireless…how cool is that!!!!

  78. Two things I learned, and love, about the Oreck Magnesium RS vacuum is that it lies flat to get under beds and other furniture and the side brushes that make cleaning up against baseboards and edges easy.

  79. It’s only 7.7 pounds! Awesome

  80. I followed all the instructions and am back from visiting the Oreck sight. Have always wondered how these vacuums stack up to other heavier models so I was happy to read your assessment. I use what feels to be a 100 lb. Kirby. I love it that the Oreck vacuum automatically adjusts itself to the different levels as I have wood floors, stone and carpet in my home and of course it being the lightest weight full power upright swivel in America is a huge plus. Thank you for hosting this give away. I love your blog. It is helping to keep me motivated and on track especially this cleaning series.

  81. I love that it’s furniture friendly & has a low profile. I need that!

  82. I like the way the handle lies flat to get under furniture. With two dogs and four cats, fur is EVERYWHERE!

  83. Lindsay Lee says:

    I learned that the vacuum is only 7.7 pounds!!!

  85. amanda smith says:

    I learned from the website that it weights 7.7lbs.

  86. Melissa Dehne says:

    I love the fact that it is only 7.7 pounds! I truly could get that up and down my stairs with no issues!

  87. love the side brushes… seems like it would be excellent for hard woods which is what i need!

  88. love the side brushes, seems like it would be excellent for hard woods which is what i need!

  89. Tiffany L. says:

    I like that the Oreck Magnesium RS is lightweight at only 7.7 pounds and the low profile soft side and top design that it has. I couldn’t tell you how many times I have nicked a piece of furniture by trying to vacuum under it with my other vacuum.

  90. Shelly Thompson says:

    The Oreck Magnesium is lightweight and can easily be taken up and down stairs. Also, you do not have to do manual adjustments between floor coverings (carpet to tile, etc.) and a USA made product!!

  91. Mary Kay Holden says:

    It is only 7.7 lbs. I would love one!

  92. I love that it lies flat to go under furniture! I have been wanting one for years!

  93. I can’t decide which feature is my favorite, we have hardwood and carpet in our downstairs, so the fact that the Oreck will automatically adjust to each floor is amazing. The lightweight versatility is a huge factor for me as I have scoliosis and it makes carrying heavy objects cumbersome. And for myself and my son who both suffer from asthma, the HEPPA filter bag is a huge bonus! Good luck to everyone entering!

  94. Love, love, love the fact that it will lie flat to go under furniture. That would be so great!

  95. I would love to win this! We are moving back to the states after years of being overseas and I will need a new vacuum. I will def look into this one, 7.7 pounds and headlights! Sounds great!

  96. Love that it has sidebrushes for my baseboards! I will finally be able to repaint my baseboards and not worry about scuffing them again!!!

  97. Made in the USA!

  98. I learned from the website it has large, high-performance wheels, which help in its navigation on all floor types. I was also happy to see it has pretty high customer reviews.

  99. I learned that it will adjust to whatever surface you are cleaning – carpet, hardwood, etc. And that it can lay flat to get under furniture, love that!

  100. Same as you Toni, I to have been a Dyson owner for years, my Dyson Original just finally cleaned for the last time a few weeks ago. After much searching and research on many vacuums I think the Oreck Magnesium would be a great addition to my cleaning routine. With it only being 7 lbs even my kids could handle it. I love the fact that it can go under furniture, that would elimitate moving items around. Also with my kids in 4h we have many indoor animals, the HEPA bag would help cut down on the allergies!!

  101. Becky Burmeister says:

    It only weighs 7.7lbs!!! That will be awesome when I have to drag it up and down the stairs! :)

  102. Laura Blackburn says:

    I LOVE this vacuum! It’s lightweight, has several features I’m looking for in an upright (swivel motion, high-powered, wireless and affordable!). With five children, a messy husband and a dog, we go through vacuums like its our job :)

  103. I love that it is 7.7 pounds! My recently broken Kirby weighs close to 25 pounds.

  104. I too love the look of the vacuum lines in the carpet! How exciting it would be to own one of these. I learned that its so powerful it feels self propelled.

  105. I love that it will lay flat to go under furniture and that it is good for the hardwood floors!

  106. Tara Wilson says:

    It’s only 7.7lbs that’s less than my son was at birth :) Nice and lightweight.
    It has swivel steering….AMAZING! My current vacuum does NOT have that!!!!!

  107. It’s really light weight and the lower profile is great for getting under the furniture and especially my dining room table and chairs.

  108. It only weighs 7.7 pounds and can clean any surface!

  109. Michelle Hoffman says:

    Amazing vacuum that comes in at 7.7 lbs, self-adjusts to floor type, and made in the USA . . . what more could you ask for? Please replace my Dyson-smyson for me!

  110. My first experience with an Oreck vacuum was when I was teaching and had to clean up my own classroom. We were each given an Oreck (no frills) but it did an awesome job! I have a Dyson now but just told my husband that my next vacuum will be an Oreck. What I love about this new vacuum is how lightweight it is. I am contanstly vacuuming and need a vacuum that can go from carpet to hardwood with ease.

  111. The Oreck Magnesium RS vacuum has a wireless 2 speed QuickSwitch in the handle that enables you to select the right power levels and move smoothly across all floor types.

  112. I learned from the oreck.com website the the Magnesium RS has a new feature: side brushes which are great for cleaning baseboards. We have lots of baseboards so these would be terrific to have on a new vacuum.

  113. I learned that the Magnesium RS is the lightest, full-powered, swivel-steering upright vacuum cleaner in America.

  114. Love that it lies flat to easily fit under furniture!

  115. Heather Castillo says:

    Side brushes make cleaning up against baseboards and edges easy. Additionally, Magnesium RS is so powerful it feels self-propelled.

  116. I love the cord snap. We have had to replace multiple cords that have been chewed up in the vacuum. Having two dogs and two teenagers, this would be a blessing in our home.

  117. Is Liking the FB page the same as Following the page. I can’t figure out how to follow the page? I have liked it and signed up for Notifications and Subscribed to the newsletter.

  118. I learned that the reason this vacuum is so light (7.7 pounds) is because its frame is made from “a unique magnesium alloy frame”. I’m guessing that is where the name comes from :)

  119. What an amazing giveaway! We need a new vaccuum so badly. This vaccuum looks amazing.

  120. I love that the power settings are in the handle and not at the base of the vacuum! That makes it much easier to switch when necessary :-)

  121. I learned that it has swivel steering and that you can go from one type of flooring to anther without stopping to manually adjust the vacuum. With 2 cats and a very allergic fiancé, the filter is a great feature!

  122. Jade curtice says:

    I just learned that is self propelled, lightweight and easy to lug up stairs. Love that!

  123. I learned that it’s under 8 pounds, which would really help because we have stairs and I have to get my husband to lug our current vac up them!

  124. Jennifer H says:

    I NEED to have this vacuum. What great features!!! One of the things that I learned is that the Oreck Magnesium RS Vacuum is built to last and comes with a 7-year warranty. THANK YOU for sponsoring such an awesome giveaway.

  125. The vacuum has a 20 foot power cord!

  126. Love how it helps to do steps easier.

  127. I love that it is only 7.7 pounds and is easily carried up and down stairs! I recently put a hole in the wall at the bottom of the stairs from the flying vacuum.

  128. we have bought a vacuum EVERY year. we have never been able to afford a good one. with kids and dogs and cats i would vacuum 3 to 4 times a day and just wear them out. get our income tax and buy a new cheap one.this sounds amazing. super suction, lightweight. gets UNDER furniture. sounds like it would last more than a year

  129. It’s only 7.7ibs and can vacuum any surface!! AND it’s wireless!!

  130. Dawn Hogue says:

    LOVE that it is only 7.7 pounds. Our vacuum recently fell down the stairs when I was trying to vacuum them. This new vacuum would be a great help :)

  131. I love the ‘Easy Snap’ cord clip!

  132. It’s wireless and you can use it on all types of floors.

  133. Adela Keranen says:

    Love to not use a mop anymore and chemicals!

  134. Jessica Catherine says:

    I love the fact that is self-adjusts to the type of floor you’re on, unlike my dyson which I have to change settings on from carpet to wood floors.

  135. I love how lightweight this new model is! We have an older oreck that is about ready to die and have been debating what to do. Thanks for the info!

  136. It goes all the way under beds and furniture!! Finally!

  137. It has side brushes!!!! Oh how I want this vacuum to clean close to my baseboards…

  138. I like that it has side brushes to clean against baseboards.

  139. Courtney Ritchey says:

    Wow, that looks like nice vacuum! Would love to win this.

  140. DeNise Tatum says:

    Its very lightweight and has incredible suction.

    My email is dttatum@yahoo.com

  141. I find it most interesting that it comes with annual check ups.

  142. The Oreck looks and sounds wonderful. 7.7 pounds AND it swivels!!! I’m sold!

  143. My favorite thing that I learned is how lightweight it is, only 7.7lbs! That and that it also comes with a handheld vacuum too!

  144. I love that the Magnesium lies almost flat to get under furniture-great for under beds and couches. I also really like the side cleaning brushes to clean baseboards and edges more easily.

  145. The Oreck Magnesium is the news model weighing it at 7.7 lbs making it the lightest full power in America.
    I have to tell you my mom had an Oreck when I was growing up (Okay she still has) I loved the light weight of it. Even if I don’t will this I swear one day I will own an Oreck.

  146. Twin LED headlights! How cool is that?

  147. Donna Tycer says:

    Love the lightweight 7.7 lbs and the ease of using it from one surface to the next WITHOUT adjusting anything.

  148. I am torn between loving the side brushes for baseboards (that is where my current vacuum just seems to blow all the dirt up against!) and the fact that it is only 7.7 lbs! We don’t have much storage room so the vacuum gets stored in the basement – which means I have to lug it up 3 flights of stairs to get to the bedrooms! Not sure what my current vacuum weighs but it is significantly more than that!!

  149. Made in USA!

  150. Jessie Meade says:

    Good Morning Toni! I love reading your daily posts whether it be on Facebook, your blog, Pinterest or Instagram. This is my first contest entry and I am excited to learn about the Oreck line. I have always wanted a Dyson myself, hearing nothing but positive feedback, but due to their price, I currently use a Shark (which has been nice but has not provided the best clean for our combination tile, hardwood and carpeted floors). We are also getting a puppy soon so having clean floors will be a must!

    The most interesting thing I learned about the Oreck Magneisum Vacuum is that is it has a feature called a “QuickSwitch®” in the handle, which is wireless, enables you to select the right power levels and move smoothly across all floor types. Also, it has large, high-performance wheels which allow you to easily change from one surface to another, (hardwood and tile to plush and frieze carpet) without stopping for manual adjustments! Thanks for sharing this product! Can’t wait to hear more about it’s performance.

    My Facebook account (where I follow ABFOL and shared the giveaway) uses a different e-mail address than my daily e-mail account provided with this comment to reduce clutter and the chance of having my regular e-mail hacked :)

  151. Here are a few things I learned (and love BTW) – that the Oreck Magnesium lies FLAT to get into those are to reach places (under beds, furniture, etc). Also, it has a side brush for baseboards! Fingers crossed the Oreck gets to come and play at my house!

  152. I love that you can go from wood to carpet effortlessly! This is an amazing machine and I would be honored to have one… especially since I vacuum every single day!!!

  153. Vicky Peavler says:

    The fact that this cleaner is only 7.7 lbs and has a low profile and furniture friendly sound great. Thanks for the giveaway.

  154. My vacuumed is so heavy…so I would totally dig a vacuumed that cleans this well and only weighs about 7 lbs

  155. 7.7 lbs perfect for my
    kiddos to help with no worries :)

  156. I love there is a side brush that makes cleaning up against baseboards….This would be so helpful since I have a messy two year old.

  157. Okay, this might seem like the simplest one, but HOLY 7 POUNDS?! That’s lighter than my shih tzu puppy!!

  158. Jessie Coon says:

    The 7 year warranty is wonderful! You don’t find that on any product these days!

  159. Danene Dorcas says:

    I love that the Oreck had LED headlights so I can see as I go under furniture, that it has a 30 foot cord (!), and that it had side brushes for my baseboards. I love the weight…our house is two floors and my kids help with the vacuuming.

  160. I love the side brushes and it is made of a magnesium frame, so it is light!!

  161. it is able to go under furniture! I swear most vacuums are designed by men because they’re never thought through 100% this one must have been designed by a woman! it has everything that is needed. light weight, lights, and easy to maneuver!

  162. Teri Morrison says:

    I like the fact that it is only 7.7 pounds! Easy to carry up and down the stairs! Maybe my kids could carry it too!

  163. I have learned that the “HEPA inner bag, captures 99.97% of particles at .3 microns” (had to look up what microns were. It is a “unit of length equal to one millionth (10 -6) of a meter”). It collects those things that make us sneeze and have agitation like: pollen, dust, smoke, animal dander and mold spores. This is so nice because my husband and son have allergies. Since we just moved to NC we have noticed a change.
    I also like the fact that it cleans very close the baseboards. That is a huge thing for me when I vaacum. I think I’ve just fallen in love with this vaacum. It’s a gem.
    Thank you for giving me a chance to check out another product.

  164. It is the newest addition to the Magnesium line & it’s light weight! That’s a plus!

  165. Andrea in WI says:

    That beautiful Oreck had great side brushes and only weis 7.7 lbs. That is less than my cat!

  166. I like that it is an amazingly light 7.7 lbs, making it easy to carry up and down the stairs. I also like the new side brushes feature.

  167. I like the idea that it’s light and easily maneuverable. I need something that I can pull out quickly and easily for the pet hair!

  168. I would love to own one of those vacuums! Thanks for the opportunity!

  169. melissa brown says:

    I love that it feels self-propelled. Vacuuming always hurts my back, and this one sounds like it wouldn’t since it’s so light weight and powerful.

  170. Erika Rohm says:

    I actually went to the website when you posted about it the other day, I fell in love with this vacuum! I Have pets that shed quite a bit and I am looking for a good vacuum. I really like the fact that it can go to any floor surface without any manual adjustment. I also like that it has side brushes to clean the baseboards.

  171. Heidi Huerta says:

    This vacuum sets the standard for vacuums!! With a suction brush rotating 7,000 times per minute, this is a household necessity!!

  172. JenSteinheimer says:

    Oreck is made in the U.S.

  173. Leslie Galloway says:

    It weighs less than 8 pounds… which is awesome for getting it upstairs.

    Yikes!! I just wrote all of my knowledge I gained from the Oreck website about the Magnesium RS. It captures around 99.97% of all those allergens that are flowing through some of our home such as, pollen, dander, dust. This is especially effective due to the fact that my son and husband have allergies. Love that!
    I also love that fact that it has side brushes to have a better baseboard clean.
    Thank you for giving me the chance to find a wonder vacuum! It sounds like a dream.

  178. it is the newest in the magnesium line of oreck vacuums

  179. Jeanette M C says:

    I loved it’s furniture friendly design.

  180. It lays flat!!! It weighs only 7.7 pounds!!! Has swivel steering!!! Sounds wonderful to me :)

  181. I didn’t know Oreck had a hand-held model with a shoulder strap. I definitely would find this useful!

  182. Danene Dorcas says:

    I love that the Oreck has LED lights for cleaning under/in dark areas, that it has a 30 foot cord (!) and that it has side brushes for my baseboards!

  183. So powerful it feels self propelled!

  184. I love that the cord has an easy snap so it won’t get in your way! I can’t tell you how many times that happens with my current vacuum and it drives me crazy.

  185. This is an amazing giveaway given that the Oreck RS retails for $599.99. I currently have a Dyson and would LOVE to give it to my daughter and use this wonder! Thank you for the opportunity.

  186. Looks great!

    The Saniseal® system automatically seals shut, locking the dirt in the disposable filter bag.

  187. Shannon Joyce says:

    This vacuum looks awesome! I like how it is limber enough to lower to almost a flat level, this would be great for under beds and under couch. Another feature that we do not typically see is the nifty little brushes on the side of the vacuum. The other feature I like it that it has a Hepa inner bag to catch all those nasty little particles.

  188. Brushes to help clean corners and against baseboards … laying flat to get under furniture … I’m in!

  189. The wireless QuickSwitch looks so incredible handy!!

  190. Oooo! It goes flat so it will go under my girls beds. Yipee!!!

  191. I love everything about this vacuum! Easily moves across all floor types with the QuickSwitch system on the handle. Lies flat to get under furniture! If only it could run itself! :)

  195. Kellie Miller says:

    LOVE that it has a HEPA filter, we have horrible allergies in our family, so anything that helps my kids breathe better is a plus in my book! The brushes on the sides that help clean baseboards is fantastic…so much dust and dirt gets caught there! Thank you ABFOL for all your helpful tips!

  196. Love the “The lightest, full-powered Oreck upright vacuum cleaner ever: Weighs 7.7 lbs.” I’m so over hauling my heavy vacuum up and down the stairs. I’d be grateful to not have to do that any more.

  197. New Feature: Side brushes make cleaning up against baseboards and edges easy. Additionally, Magnesium RS is so powerful it feels self-propelled.

  198. I love that the Oreck Magnesium self-adjust to whatever flooring you use it on. I currently own a Dyson but I have to manually adjust and it gets annoying. I also loved hearing your opinion about how the Oreck compares to the Dyson. I would be so thrilled if I won this!

  199. Side brushes for base boards! This is fantastic, no more pulling out the accessories!

  200. I love that the Oreck comes with HEPA filter bags. This is absolutely necessary at my house where we track in a lot of dust and animal hair and dander is a constant.

  201. It’s less than 8 lbs! How awesome for going upstairs and downstairs to the basement. And easy on the back too!

  202. It has incredible suction power . It’s the lightest, full-powered, swivel-steering upright vacuum cleaner in America. The large, high-performance wheels give Magnesium RS the agility it needs for every surface, from hardwood and tile to plush. It’s so lightweight that carrying it upstairs is a cinch and so powerful it feels self-propelled.

  203. It lays flat under furniture. Love that!

  204. Saniseal® system automatically seals shut, locking the dirt in the disposable filter bag. I really like this as I have wanted an Orek for years and I have very bad allergies that go into migraines………. Love you Orek……..DebbieJo

  205. It uses bags with HEPPA filters!

  206. My favorite things I learned: made in the USA, is lightweight (which is perfect for my tendinitis), and automatically adjusts to the floor. This sounds like a dream machine to me!

  207. Olga-Alicia Lopez says:

    It’s amazing that something so light (7.7 lbs.) can have so much power (102 mph airflow)! This is awesome to be able to carry up and down the stairs to clean up after 5 cats and one shi tzu in the house.

  208. Amazed at the weight and way it actually cleans..Yearning for one…
    Easy on the back and joints…WOW..Never have I seen a cleaner
    more efficient and lightweight…including a hand-held with strap.
    Thanks for the contest…

  209. I love that it is so lightweight and has a 20 foot cord! :)

  217. Melissa Huenergardt says:

    I learned from the website that as air passes through the HEPA inner bag, it captures at least 99.97% of particles. That is AMAZING!! It picks up pollen, house dust, smoke, animal dander and mold spores. We are not a smoking family, but everything else on that list really excites me. My son (6), daughter (4) and husband have really bad allergies. We live in Texas where allergy season seems to be 10 months out of the year. This fabulous creature would be my new best friend.

  218. I love that it’s only 7.7 pounds!

  219. I didn’t know that Orecks had horsehair edge brushes!

  220. I need a new vacuum and this one looks amazing! I love that it has side brushes! I hate when you need to do a quick vacuum and then there are crumbs or whatever left along the edges of the carpet. Maybe these side brushes would solve that problem! :)

  221. The Oreck Magnesium RS comes with a 7-year warranty plus 5 annual tune-ups. That’s awesome!

  222. La'Verne Chin says:

    This is a wonderful vacuum cleaner. I love the fact that it automatically transitions from carpet to floor. Keeping the hardwood clean is important to me.

  223. They’ve been in business since 1963 – really? WOW!
    I would love to win – we have 2 dogs – I would love to vacuum every day! Our current vacuum cleaner is sooooooooo heavy!!

  224. The Oreck Magnesium RS comes with a 7-year warranty plus 5 annual tune-ups. That’s awesome!!

  225. It’s only 7 pounds! That’s the most important thing, because heavy vacuums absolutely KILL my back. I’m always stealing my mom’s old school Oreck vac, and that sucker is HEAVY.

  226. Stephanie salazar says:

    The Oreck is amazing my parents and grandmothers had/ have it!! It works amazing for hardwood and laminate flooring! And of course on carpet!!

  227. It is only 7.7 pounds. Yes! Thanks for the chance!

  229. I learned that the Oreck will lay almost flat to clean under furniture. I love this feature!

  230. I learned that the direct suction and roller brush rotate at over 7,000 revolutions per minute! This looks like an awesome vacuum! Moving out of my parents house I would have a great start to a clean home of my own!

  231. I learned that as air passes through the HEPA inner bag, it captures at least 99.97% of particles at .3 microns from that air, which includes the following: pollen, house dust, smoke, animal dander and mold spores. Great for pet lovers!

  232. I learned that it is able to lay almost completly flat to fit under furniture easier.

  233. I love that the large, high performance wheels give it the agility it needs for every surface without needing any manual adjustments.

  234. Kristin Boyd says:

    I’m a follower!

    VERY COOL!

  236. Kim Phillips says:

    Not only does the Magnesium RS only weigh 7.7 pounds, its cord is 30 ft long! I can do most of the main floor of my house without having to unplug and plug over and over again!

  237. Most of what I read on the Oreck website I already knew from reading your review! But when I read some of the reviews someone mentioned that they had a hand knotted rug and the vacuum picked up the dirt without destroying the carpet, plus your comment about it moving easily through your plush carpet. This is really helpful information for me, I am a flooring salesperson and people are buying softer and plusher carpet than ever, and finding a vacuum that does it’s job and is easy to use can be difficult!

  238. Made in the USA! Thank you for the review.

  239. I saw the option for side bristles to help clean baseboards. That is awesome! I would love that!

  240. WOW!!! Only 7 pounds. My current vacuum is a monster. I love the lightweight.

  241. I absolutely love Orek! This new vacuum is AWESOME! The fact that it goes under the furniture is FANTASTIC and that it is only 7.7lbs is the BEST!

  242. I learned that the Magnesium has side brushes. How convenient for those spots right up against the wall. Awesome!

  243. I learned it weighs less than my son!

  244. Side brushes! Awesome.

  245. It cost $600 and “At 7.7 pounds*, Magnesium RS is the lightest, full-powered, swivel-steering upright vacuum cleaner in America. “

  247. Side brushes to clean edges! Great idea! I need this vacuum!

  248. I love that it is able to pick up 99.97% of air particles such as pollen, mold spores, dust, smoke and animal dander! Also, being able to use it on all floor types is a nice bonus!

  249. I love the little side brushes for baseboards and edges. I NEED this vacuum!

  250. I learned that it lays flat to go under furniture & swivels. That would be awesome!

  251. It so powerful it feels self-propelled

  252. I learned that this is the lightest weight upright vaccuum by oreck — great product, and easy to use for me *and* my grandmother!

  253. It’s flat so you can clean under furniture. BRILLIANT!!!

  254. The Oreck Magnesium automatically adjust to the different floors. Go from carpet to hardwood without changing a thing. The vacuum automatically does it for you.

  255. I too as a long standing dyson owner and fan, love my animal and that it’s held up 6 years now but….. It’s so large it won’t lie flat under furniture including the bed and after reading about the oreck I was pleasantly surprised to learn how light weight and furniture friendly it is including laying flat under the beds! This would help me reach those place that I’ve not been able to vacuum

  256. Teri Martinez says:

    I learned it’s light weight, only 7.7 lbs. Which I think is perfect.

  257. Made in the USA!!!

  258. IT LAYS FLAT!! There are a million great things about this vacuum, but that is my favorite. I use a canister to get under and around the furniture, but dragging the canister around behind me and keeping the long hose clean are definitely negatives. This would fix that!

  259. You had me until facebook; I don’t do fb, twitter, etc.

  260. Jennifer Madigan says:

    I love that it’s only 7.7 lbs. That is awesome and light enough for my little ones to learn to properly vacuum.

  261. Jennifer Horgan says:

    The Oreck is only 7.7 lbs!! I need a new vacuum and one I can lug up and down my stairs would be fantastic!! I love to vacuum (weird) and a nice, light vacuum would make me happy.

  262. That is maneuvers easily under furniture, which is awesome!

  263. I love the side brushes for cleaing up against the baseboards and the wireless quickswitch. Sounds like a great vacuum!!

  264. Oreck’s Magnesium has side brushes to get close to the walls. Great feature. I hope I win. I am past ready to retire Mr. Hoover.

  265. It lays flat and has swivel steerinh.

  266. I really like the side brushes. No more pulling out the attachments to get things that are right up against the baseboards!

  267. The oreck is the lightest, full-powered, swivel-steering upright vacuum in America. I need one!

  268. Cynthia Toone Riley says:

    I learned that it is so light weight…just 7.7 pounds….. I can do my stairs..I have three staircases….much easier!

  269. Christine Ortman says:

    With its unique SlimSwivel™ Design, the Magnesium RS is limber enough to easily maneuver around furniture and other obstacles. It lies virtually flat to get under beds, too!

  270. I love that the wireless two-speed QuickSwitch® in the handle enables you to select the right power levels and move smoothly across all floor types.

  271. I learned, from Oreck.com, that the Magnesium is also good for hardwood floors. That is a super bonus for me because of all the pet hair! I also learned that you can get a handheld vacuum with the attachments which is great because of all the pet hair. I would LOVE to have an ORECK:)

  272. Alicia Slubowski says:

    I love that it has the hepa filter (we have a house of allergies) and the light weight. I already use an oreck and would love an upgrade!!

  273. The neatest thing is that it can be used on different surfaces and doesn’t weigh much.

  274. I’ve tried so many different vacuum cleaners and can’t seem to get it right. I’ve never tried the Oreck but after reading about the features on the Magnesium I’m going to have to check into it further. Love the fact that the settings adjust on their own and it’s lighweight. I sure didn’t know Oreck is made in the USA. Definitely a plus!

  275. Nicole Avery says:

    I have a Dyson and had it for over 8 years. It works good but it tends to get clogged in the filter and canister. It is a pain to clean it out every week. With a bag it will be easier to remove and discard the bag. I learned that as air passes through the Oreck Magnesium HEPA inner bag, it captures at least 99.97% of particles at .3 microns from that air, which includes the following: pollen, house dust, smoke, animal dander and mold spores. That is awesome. Now I know that my family will be breathing cleaner air.

  276. I love the weight and versatility of the Oreck Magnesium!!!! I have always wanted an Oreck for many years but can’t cough up the price for one. My carpet cleaning brother would love if I had a better vacuum, especially before he comes to do carpets in April :D

  277. I Love, love LOVE that Oreck is made in the USA!!!

  278. I learned that it is lightweight and easy to carry up and down stairs.. Love that!

  279. Dayna Johnson says:

    I love how light it is. Would be great for lugging up and down stairs.

  280. Kristen Johnson says:

    It is 7.7 lbs. It is the perfect vacuum for my house full of wood floors!

  281. I learned that it goes up to baseboards nicely and has a 7 year warranty!

  282. I learned that it has a low-profile design, which means it would be way easier to vacuum under and around my furniture!

  283. I found out that the setting buttons are on the handle – super easy and convenient.

  284. The side brushes make cleaning against baseboards and edges easy. Just what I need! Not to mention it is only 7.7lbs!

  285. I didn’t know that magnesium is stronger than many types of steel. That’s pretty great considering it’s so lightweight!

  286. I love the fact that it can be used on multi surfaces….We have three different types of flooring so this would be an awesome addition to our house

  287. I learned that it’s only 7.7 lbs! Being pregnant and having just moved into a split-level house, it would be a blessing to have a vacuum so much lighter than my current one!

  288. I can’t remember when I’ve wanted to win anything so bad!!

  289. I learned that it’s only 7.7 lbs! Being pregnant and having just moved into a split level house, having such a lightweight vacuum would be a blessing! :)

  290. Love that it can be used on carpet and hardwood and love the side brushes!

  291. lightest, full-powered, swivel-steering upright vacuum cleaner in America

  292. I just moved into my own place as I’m in the process of divorcing, and this vacuum would be a true blessing as I could NEVER afford it on my own!

  293. lightest, full-powered, swivel-steering upright vacuum cleaner in America

  294. I have a Dyson and have never been ‘in love’ with it, unlike so many other people. I just don’t feel like it cleans as well as they say it does. When I visited my Mom in CA a few years ago, she had me try her Oreck (just base model, I believe) and I immediately fell in love with it. It was SUPER light and laid flat. Oreck – 2 Dyson – 0.

  295. The magnesium frame is stronger than many types of steel! Pick me, pick me!!!

    ~Amy in WI

  296. Oh, this would be so perfect for me! However, I refuse to use my facebook to advertise for anyone, so I won’t be entering. I was so excited for about 2 minutes.

  297. I love that this vac has headlights. Extra bonuses are that it comes with a 7 year warranty and 5 annual “tune-ups”

  298. I would love to see the horsehair edge brushes in action. I always have issues getting my baseboards squeaky clean!!

  299. I’m intrigued that it works so effectively for as lightweight as it is (7.7 lbs) and has a HEPA filtration system (this allergy-ridden family would benefit from that!). With the swivel steering and lay-flat feature, I think it sounds awesome!

  300. I learned that it is only 7.7lbs! We have carpeted stairs and 2 levels and it would make this a much lighter job!

  301. I like the fact that the Magnesium can be used on all floor types.

  302. Rebecca Kennedy says:

    I like the fact that there are no manual adjustments when you switch between different surfaces!

  303. I learned that the vacuum will adjust to floors automatically. I love that! I also love that it’s only 7.7 pounds; no more weight lifting to clean the floors!

  304. april goodwin says:

    This Oreck sounds like a dream! I currently have a Dyson and with kids, and a BIG dog, I am vacuuming everyday. I also have issues with my joints and having a lighter vacuum would really make this chore much easier! I love that the Oreck captures 99.97% of the allergens as well (my fact that I learned), because I also have bad allergies too! Gosh, this sounds like my dream vacuum!!!

  305. Kelli Kegley says:

    That it can be used on any surface and is only 7.7 lbs!!!

  306. I love that the vacuum easily moves over high pile carpet and switches automatically to wood and tile. Thanks for the opportunity!

  307. I love the low profile, furniture friendly design and the swivel steering. I own an Oreck but an older model. I didn’t think they could improve their vacuums but boy am I surprised.

  308. It is only 7.7 pounds. I used to have an Oreck years ago. I was so sad when it died.

  309. Made in the usa!!! Yeah

  310. I love that it switches floor types so effortlessly! We have mostly hardwood, but several areas of different runs and carpeting!

  311. I have had my heart set on an Oreck for years! I love the idea of the bags, the separate canister and how light they are… This new Magnesium is the lightest, and lays completely flat for going under furniture! What a fantastic give away, one lucky person is going to be thrilled!!! Good luck everyone!

  312. I LOVE that it can go over multiple surface types so easily! It would definitely make my cleaning routine easier and QUICKER (which is always a plus).

  313. LuAnn Ososki says:

    I learned that it is low profile and I will finally be able to get under my beds easily!!

  314. Christine Gossard says:

    I cannot believe it is only 7.7 pounds! We have stairs and that would be unbelieveably handy when I need to vacuum upstairs. Which vacuum day is Thursday. :)

  315. Oooh, I like the Quickswitch feature. I have hard floors, shag and low pile carpets and this would make cleaning much easier.

  316. I learned that it only weighs 7.7 pounds that is awesome when you have lug it upstairs. Hope I win! :)

  317. It has a 30 foot power cord! I so need this!

  318. It can basically lay flat to fit under beds – I need that!

  319. Marijka Bosma says:

    It easily goes from floor to floor of different materials. Lies flat to go under furniture, and is super light weight.

  320. I love that it’s only 7.7 pounds and compact. Much easier than hauling around our canister vac!

  321. Oh so nice and light weight! 7.7 pounds. I love the fact that it can virtually lie flat to vacuum under furniture.

  322. I like how it goes from hardwood floors to carpet without having to adjust the settings! That would be very helpful in cleaning my house

  323. Anny Hartley says:

    I love that it catches so much with the HEPA inner bag because we love our pets but we don’t love all the hair! As air passes through the HEPA inner bag, it captures at least 99.97% of particles at .3 microns from that air, which includes the following: pollen, house dust, smoke, animal dander and mold spores. Great for pet lovers!

  324. I love that this vacuum can lie almost completely flat to vacuum in those hard to reach places

  325. I learned that it weighs only 7.7 lbs (less than my newborn baby!) and that it lies flat, which I love! And it swivels! I want it!

  326. Carolyn McHugh says:

    I love that its only 7.7 pounds! My kids are in charge of cleaning while I am at work so this would be perfect for them!

  327. It has side-brushes that help clean baseboards! Awesome!

  328. The side brushes make cleaning up against baseboards and edges easy. That would be so awesome for our house!

  329. Barbara Roth says:

    I learned that it is only 7.7 lbs. and that would come in handy for me since my grip in my hands isn’t what it used to be. There are batteries in the handle that seem easy to change. It has swivel steering and an easy to change bag!

  330. Sonya Morris says:

    It has two-speed QuickSwitch® in the handle enables you to select the right power levels and move smoothly across all floor types.

  331. I love everything about it!!! Most especially that they have 7 years warranty, that speaks for their product. Standing up to their creation, and the maintenance, 5 annual tune ups, that’s really fantastic. Not only that it looks really powerful, useful, and realistic on its features, but also very versatile! what more can you ask for!

  332. I love that it has a 20 foot power cord and 5 cleaning tools. I love having a long cord so that I don’t have to keep unplugging it! And the cleaning tools would be great for my stairway. Thank you for the giveaway!!

  333. Nothing makes life easier than having good tools. This vacuum sounds great and would make vacuuming much less of a chore!

  334. WOW-7.7 pounds is way lighter than my dyson!! Would love to win :) Thanks!

  337. The high performance wheels give it agility on every surface!

  338. Made in the USA, lays flat, weighs 7.7 lbs, swivel steering, hand held model, new side brushes. What’s not to love.

  339. Great for pet lovers because of the Hepa filter!

  341. The vacuum cleaner is only 7.7 pounds!!

  342. I love how light it is.

  343. Desiree Kano says:

    Made in the USA & only 7.7 pounds-

  344. i learned that the oreck is a lot lighter than my dyson and works on different surfaces, that is awesome!!!

  345. What I learned and I like is how far it lays down so that it goes under furniture easier!!! Great feature, plus many more!!

  346. I think the 20 ft cord is pretty awesome :)

  347. It is the lightest, full-powered, swivel-steering upright vacuum!! That sounds great when you have a two level house!

  348. I have an OLD Oreck that is finally on its last leg. I have LOVED it. The Magnesium RS has so many great features but my favorite is how lightweight it is, especially with my history of back problems!

  349. Kathleen R says:

    I learned that this model has a HEPA filter that catches 99.97% of particles at .3 microns!! Awesome for pet lovers and folks with allergies! Thanks for the great giveaway!

  351. Well, I am moving in a month or so and I need a vacuum! I love the Oreck Magnesium after reading your post.

Thanks so much! :)

  357. I didnt know that you could switch between floor types without changing anything manually!

  358. I like the idea of the swivel steering. My current vac is not easy to steer at all. The profile looks nice too.

  359. It has a SlimSwivel Design and furniture-friendly, low-profile physique it’s an effortless way to maneuver around any obstacle and clean every floor in your home—upstairs and downstairs.

  360. Wow it’s light! A bit over 7lbs…it is half of what my cat weighs!

  361. I love that it weighs only 7.7 lbs!

    I love the fact that the vacuum is so strong and yet so light. I am tired of vacuums that do not clean! Would love to try this one out as I need to buy some for my kids as they leave the house for places of their own!

  368. I learned that its only 7.7 lbs! I’m moving into a 2 story home and this would be amazing! I have no idea how I’m going to get my monstrous vacuum up the stairs, let alone clean them!

  369. Just learned that this vacuum is very durable because it’s made of a magnesium frame while still weighing only 7.7 lbs…LOVE it!

  370. deborah345 says:

    Lightweight and easy to carry for up and down stairs is a real plus. Actually I love all the features this vac has, floor to carpet and back again – whoo hooo!

  371. It’s lightweight which means I can use it if I can’t get my husband to vacuum!

  372. This vacuume is a dream. I love that it’s light weight and very powerful. The wireless switch in the handle will be very convenient.

    Thank you!

  374. Jade Curtice says:

    Love that it’s only 7.7 lbs! That is less than half of my 9 month old. Yes!

  375. ORECK IS #1
    I found that the Magnesium has a low profile to fit under furniture and it has little side brushes that will “sweep” along the edge of walls and such
    Thanks for this offer

  376. I love the new feature of the side brush. This would be so helpful in cleaning the baseboards! Love that it only weights 7.7 lbs, too.

  377. The slimswivel effortless way to maneuver around any obstacle and clean every floor in your home. I like that it has swivel in it lol because it sounds like it will be very easy to move around floors and furniture!

  378. Amanda Paige says:

    The slimswiveis an easy way to maneuver around any obstacle and clean every floor in your home

  379. I love that it is made in the USA. I also like that it is light weight.

  380. Oreck magnesium has an inner Hepa filter that captures 99.97% of particles in the air, including pollens and molds. My son just went thru allergy testing and having just received a crash course on airborne allergens, this sounds like a great vacuum for the allergy sufferer!

  381. Love that the Oreck lies flat to fit under furniture and is soooo light!!!

  382. Danielle Monreal says:

    The Oreck Magnesium RS is a full-powered lightweight vacuum! That’s awesome bc all of the lightweight vacuums I’ve tried (and there have been several) have performed terribly with mediocre sucking power that doesn’t last! And 7.7 lbs in weight… that’s a newborn baby!

  383. I love that its made in the united states, it gives jobs to many people and The large, high-performance wheels give Magnesium RS the agility it needs for every surface, that is always a plus!

  384. I did not know that Oreck made a hand held. I could sure us that on my stairs and sofa….all the dog hair drives me bonkers!!

  385. Katrina Hamilton says:

    The long 30 ft. cord is a winner! This vacuum sounds wonderful all the way around. :)

  386. If you didn’t personally have a dyson, I would not be so intrigued. I do have a dyson that I love dearly. But a vacuum with side brushes? Now that’s something I would like to see. I have been loving your blog so much!

  387. Weighs 7.7lb which is about the weight of a human head!

  388. Weighs just 7.7lb, about the weight of a human head!

  389. The vacuum will lie almost completely flat to go under furniture.

  390. Darla Boggs says:

    After reading the website, I learned that one of the new features of the Oreck Magnesium RS are the side brushes that help clean the baseboards. I think this is a wonderful feature as I tend to bang into my baseboards with my current vacum when trying to get as close to the baseboards as I can!

  391. Kellie Anne says:

    As air passes through the HEPA inner bag, it captures at least 99.97% of particles at .3 microns from that air, which includes the following: pollen, house dust, smoke, animal dander and mold spores. Great for pet lovers!

    We are getting married in October and we are in desperate need of a vacuum before we move in… We could definitely not afford such an excellent vacuum like this! My fingers are crossed…

  392. I love that it cleans the baseboards and works on all types of flooring AND furniture!

  393. The Oreck Magnesium RS is $599.99 – what a huge prize to win – and it only weighs 7.7 lbs.

  394. The larger wheels allow for an easy transition from carpet to hard floors. That is a HUGE deal in my house! Manual adjustments are killing me!

  395. Rebecca Hayes says:

    This looks like an amazing vacuum. I like the cannister shape but with a bag, and it appears to be so agile and light weight. My vacuum is an old Sanitaire and we are hoping it will last a bit longer. I would love to win this though :)

  396. Living in a split level home and with an asthmatic toddler, I’m looking for a vac such as this. This vac, considering its features, will be a great asset when we’re able to move from carpet to hardwood floors with rugs. Even if we don’t win this, I will have it on my wishlist!

  397. I love that it is so light which would make vacuumimg stairs so much easier. I also love that it can lie flat to be stored and would fit under furniture!! And it swivels, wow!!:)

  398. Elisa Leon says:

    That the magnesium is furtinur freindly due to its low profile to manuver around furniture.

  399. lightest, full-powered, swivel-steering

  400. Heather Todd says:

    I have carpet and hardwoods in my home so I love that it will work on both floor types without having to change the setting or connecting a special attachment….and since it’s wireless, its even easier to move from room to room and even up the stairs!

  401. I really like that it can easily do carpet and hardwood and even area rugs.

  402. Durable: Magnesium frame is stronger than many types of steel!!! WOW!

  403. Nydia Figueroa says:

    The side brushes to clean next to the baseboards are GENIUS!!!

  404. Jade Snyder says:

    I learned from the Oreck website that it has a swivel steering system, I also learned that my almost 2 year old could probably vacuum for me it is so light. =) As well as they bother to define it as an ‘upright’ vacuum, I just thought that they were all just referred to as a ‘vacuum’ plain and simple. It seems I have a bit to learn. This would be awesome, as soon as I am done with your Cleaning 101 I was planning on deep cleaning my carpets. =) (Cheap apartment carpet and a toddler do not seem to mix well…)

  405. Summer Jackman says:

    This vacuum is the lightest, full-powered, swivel-steering upright vacuum cleaner in America

  406. It’s wireless!

  407. I love the side brushes. With having pets and kids and well a husband the edges tend to get more gunk and I would think the side brushes would help with that.

  408. Lightest upright vacuum in America. Sounds good to me!

  409. I love the color of this vac and that it is 7.7 pounds!

  410. It works on tile, hardwood, plush and frieze carpet! Love that!

  411. I could use this Oreck Magnesium on all my floors AND my heirloom Oriental! Fantastic!

  412. Jenni Boyles says:

    Super excited to see such a lite vacuum with such great reviews! Having carpeted stairs is sometimes a nitemare to keep clean and this would be great for that at only 7.7 pounds! Plus a long cord, wow!!

  413. Love the side brushes and the fact that it’s so easy to move around all floor surfaces. I hate having to vacuum the carpet and then turn around and go over the hardwoods after changing the attachments out. This seems way easier and more efficient!

  414. Stefanie Gladden (Ann Lyfe) says:

    I love that the large, high-performance wheels give Magnesium RS the agility it needs for every surface, from hardwood and tile to plush and frieze carpet without stopping for manual adjustments.

  415. I learned that the Oreck Magnesium is lightweight, only 7.7lbs and would be easy to use.

  416. I learned that I’d LOVE to have this vacuum system!! Everything about it is made for ease and efficiency. Lightweight, maneuverable, and effective. I love that the vacuum bags are self-sealing so none of the dirt and dust can escape.
    Thank you for telling us about the Oreck Magnesium and giving us the chance to win it!! :)

  417. Chalya Dugar says:

    I absolutely love this Oreck Magnesium vacuum! I could go between carpet to tile to wood with very little effort. And at being only 7.7 lbs with 7000 revolutions per minute with soft sides to avoid scratching surfaces plus a 7 year limted warrenty…this vacuum is a BEAST! I could definitely make use of this vacuum!

  418. What Mom wouldn’t love this!! I’m excited about the The wireless two-speed QuickSwitch! This would def be a time saver when cleaning my house!!

  419. Laura anderson says:

    What Mom wouldn’t love this..The wireless two-speed QuickSwitch would be awesome to have.

  420. The SlimSwivel design let’s you bend the vacuum down completely flat to get under furniture….sweet, dude!

  421. The large wheels make it easy to go from plush carpet to hard floor, back to carpet! I love that because my last vacuum was a PAIN to go between different floor types.

  422. The filter is new! I own an old, OLD, Oreck and it’s finally on its last leg I think. THIS Oreck would be AWESOME!

  423. This Oreck has the new SlimSwivel Design to maneuver around anything in your home! I love that it only weighs 7.7 pounds!

  424. Amy McClatchy says:

    It lies flat to get under the beds where my pets like to sleep and shed!

  425. Emily Irish says:

    I would love to know if the swivel steering is as nice as the Dyson’s.

  426. I learned that the side brushes can help keep the baseboards clean – no more hands & knees!

  427. I love that it is only 7.7 pounds. I usually get a blister vacuuming with my Shark vacuum and hence it went to the Goodwill…. I also have to carry my vacuum upstairs and back down as well as down to the basement. 7.7 pounds would be a cinch!

  428. Love the side brush! So clever!

  429. I love that it only weighs 7.7lbs!

  430. Like you mentioned in your blog entry, I have always been a Dyson lover, including thinking that the canister was the best option. Dyson leads you to believe that bags are the enemy. But from my research on Oreck’s website, it’s seems as though the HEPA filter bags are actually better for your family! I love that!

  431. I love that it has ‘side sweepers’ to get those baseboards- I’m always just picking the dirty stuff up myself since my vacuum can’t reach it. Would love to win!

  432. I think everyone has pretty much hit on every spec or feature of the vacuum, but I will say I love the fact that it has a light on the front. My mom’s had one as I was growing up and I never understood why until I moved out and got my own vacuum that does not have one. That light is so helpful!!!

  433. It has a magnesium alloy frame. Very lightweight!

  434. It’s only 7.7 pounds!!!

  435. Callie Bowers says:

    I learned that it is only 7.7lbs. This would be perfect for my split level home – easy to carry up and down the stairs! Love that!

  436. I love that it’s so lightweight and that it has a 7-year warranty!! Thank you for the chance to win!

  437. I am about to move into my first house, and I would absolutely die for this vacuum cleaner!

  438. I learned that it works on hardwood floors too. That is awesome i can just go from my kitchen to the carpet in my living room.

  439. This vaccum weighs 7.7 lbs! WOW! My first born weighed more! :)

  440. Under 8 lbs! That would be lightweight enough for the kids to use *wink!*

  441. jill whalen says:

    I love that the Oreck Magnesium is light weight at just under 8 lbs. How awesome that it switches speeds automatically when changing surfaces!! Would be so great in my home since I have hardwood, linoleum, tile and carpeting throughout. Great giveaway! Thank you!!

  442. Meaghan Voigt says:

    I love that it flattens so you can vacuum under furniture!! :)

  443. Love the side brush and how it switches easily between floor types. I’m also loving how light weight it is since I have back problems. Huge plus for me!

  444. The air passes through a HEPA inner bag that captures at least 99.97% of particles at .3 microns from that air, which includes the following: pollen, house dust, smoke, animal dander and mold spores.

  445. The Oreck is so powerful it feels self propelled. That’s awesome!

  446. Christine L says:

    The side brushes to get next to the walls excites me!

  447. Jamie Sprouse says:

    You have me very interested in this Oreck Vacuum. I currently have the Dyson DC33 and I absolutely love it, but with all the rave about the Oreck I am starting to second guess my Dyson! :)

  448. Love that it is wireless and light weight! And it is pretty too. My current vacuum is old and ugly and heavy. Everytime I vacuum if have to the the outlet dance, moving it around the house, unplugging things, so that I can plug in the vacuum. So annoying.

  449. It’s got incredible suction like the original but so light, coming in at 7.7 lbs! Thanks for the chance at this fantastic giveaway!

  450. I love the idea of 7.7 lbs. I have a horrible back and this would make life a whole lot easier!

  451. I love that it has side brushes that make cleaning up against baseboards and edges easy.

  452. I love that it automatically adjusts to your floor height because I use my vacuum pretty much everywhere and I tend to forget which setting is which.

  453. Annual cleaning/maintenance of the Oreck is the BOMB! :-)

  454. I learned that the Oreck only weighs 7.7 lbs. This sounds like a great vacuum! I have both carpet and laminate in my house and having to manually change the settings on my current vacuum is a pain. I would love to win this vacuum.

  455. I learned that the Oreck only weighs 7.7 lbs and that you don’t have to change any settings when going from hard surface flooring to carpet. This looks like a great vacuum!

  457. The Oreck can be used on hardwoods!! Woo hoo!!

  461. I am in need of a new vacuum. My Kenmore is old and very heavy, plus it’s making funny noises. I have back issues so lightweight is ideal for me. My family love the Oreck and have used it for years. I want to get on board with Oreck too. I like how the Magnesium Vacuum has Swivel-Steering features.

  462. I really like how lightweight it is~ 7.7 lbs is much less than my current vacuum!

  463. I learned from the website that there is a 7 year warranty on the vacuum and Oreck will even do 5 free tune ups. Which is great considering not everyone thinks about tuning up their vacuum. The easy power buttons look really convenient as well.

  464. I love that it goes from hard surface to carpet. But that is actually does…

  465. The Oreck has side brushes for cleaning up against baseboards and for getting into to corners and edges.

    This is a fantastic giveaway! *crosses fingers*

  466. I love that it has side bristles that help cleaning up against baseboards!!! Love this idea! I love that it can be used on ALL floors and it changes automatically so you don’t have to do anything but turn it on :)

  467. I love the fact that it is only 7.7 pounds! It would be very lightweight and easy to maneuver for me…and my children! ;)

  468. The Oreck has side brushes to make cleaning up against baseboards and edges easy.

  469. I need this vacuum! I’m tired of cleaning out my Dyson and feeling dirtier than the floor that I just cleaned! At Orek.com, I learned that it only weighs 7.7 lbs, which means it will be easy for me to carry up and down my strangely scary spiral stairs!

  470. I need this vacuum! I’m tired of cleaning out my Dyson and feeling dirtier than the floor that I just cleaned! At Orek.com, I learned that it only weighs 7.7 lbs, which means it will be easy for me to carry up and down my strangely scary spiral stairs! I love your blog and spend may too much time browsing through everything, but it’s inspirational and useful. I’m also hoping to venture into the shaklee side of cleaning next time I run out of laundry detergent!

  471. Jessica Goodman says:

    @ 7.7lbs, great warranties, great features for allergy sufferers and made in the USA…..you just cant get much better than that!

  472. Melissa Brooke says:

    I commented yesterday but not sure it went though. I figured I better comment again just to be safe. I learned and love that the Oreck only weighs 7.7 lbs and that it can go from floor to carpet without having to manually adjust the settings! :)

  473. I learned from Oreck.com that the Magnesium RS has an AMAZING HEPA filter that captures 99.97% of particles, and two particular ones caught my eye: Pollen and house dust. My husband is allergic to dustmites and I have horrible seasonal allergies. This would change our lives!!! We also have an 18-month-old who is starting to show signs of dust and pollen sensitivities. It would be wonderful to “clear the air” for the whole family!

  474. Michelle Dollinger says:

    Wow, it only weighs 7.7 pounds!

  475. I learned that it’s very light and uses swivel-steering :)

  476. I love that it is so light weight! 7.7 lbs – awesome!

  477. SlimSwivel™ design gets around and under furniture obstacles. This ability excites me to no end. I struggle to lift and move my furniture to ensure that all areas are truly clean. This would eliminate that burden! Not to mention that it can go from carpet to hard floors without an adjustment that has to be made by me. It will reduce my cleaning time so that I can focus on the things that matter the most to me…..my family!

  478. I love that it has a hepa filter which is so important to me because of asthma and allergies.

  479. It’s VERY expensive, but at 7.7 pounds*, Magnesium RS is the lightest, full-powered, swivel-steering upright vacuum cleaner in America

  480. I like that it has a 30 ft cord! I have no problem admitting that I’m lazy, and that when I finally get around to vacuuming one of my biggest irritations is having to stop and find a new outlet to plug into. My duplex has an open floor plan in the shared rooms and a distinct lack of conveniently placed outlets, so a super long cord is definite must for me.

  481. I learned that it is Made in America. Go USA!

  482. The suction brush rotates 7,000 times per minute.

  483. I have an Oreck at home and at work now and I would love this beautiful new one. They are marvelous and last forever.

Sound like an amazing vacuum and that’s saying a lot since I brag about my vacuum. I’m seriously loving this vacuum!

  485. I was surprised that it is a swivel vacuum. I thought that Dyson was the only company that made swivels. Very cool!

  487. Love that it lays flat to vacuum under beds!

  488. It lies virtually flat to go under furniture!

  489. I learned it is the lightest, full-powered, swivel-steering upright vacuum cleaner in America! Wow!!

  490. The handle has a wireless 2 speed switch to control the power level – that’s pretty cool. I love how light weight it is and that it can go from tile to carpet to hardwood floors without having to do anything!

  491. That it can go almost flat.

  492. Side brushes make cleaning up against baseboards and edges easy…. edges are the bane of my existence!

  493. Love that it has brushes on the side to clean along the baseboards and also how agile it is.

  494. This Oreck looks amazing. I have tennis elbow and carpel tunnel, so I love that this vacuum is only 7.7 pounds so I could vacuum without help dragging the vac around. The hepa filter is great since my two of my children and I and the dog, yes the dog have allergies. I also love that it folds so flat. What a great tool for any home!

  495. Emily Johnston says:

    Thank you for the opportunity to win this amazing vacuum cleaner! At 7.7 pounds it will certainly save my back from lugging my current beast up and down the stairs; and it will clean every floor surface in my home to boot!

  502. 7.7 pounds and the ease of switching suction from hard floors to carpet….and 7.7 pounds…WOW. Thanks for this awesome giveaway!

    Love that it sounds so light. I’m not sure the weight on mine, but I’m sure it’s more than that. Maybe even my girls will have an easier time pushin’ it! And self propelled?!?

  511. Kimberly Gachnang says:

    I love that it adjusts (on its own!) to any floor type! I have wood, carpet, and vinyl flooring and get so tired of switching it! And 7.7 lbs?! Amazing!

I hope I win!

  519. Only 7.7 pounds!

  520. Camilla Cadwell says:

    “Life’s full of obstacles. Magnesium RS gets you around them” ~ I like that it has the “SlimSwivel™ Design” to easily maneuver around furniture and other obstacles.
    Im also a fan of the old fashion bags ~ my Dyson canister is always looking gross…. ; )

  521. My mom cleans for a living and she has always used an Oreck and she swears by it. This particular vacuum is a wonderful 7.7 lbs and with a variety of flooring in my house its ability to transfer from carpet to hardwood and to tile is a huge plus for my family!

  522. I love that it lies flat to fit under beds and the horse hair brushes on the sides!

  523. I love that it is only 7.7 lbs.

  524. I love the fact that this vacuum has a bag. I currently use a Dyson and there is so much dust left over in the canister as well as comes up in the air when I empty it. I found out recently I’m very allergic to dust so finding a vacuum that will help trap this would be wonderful.

  525. The Oreck vacuum sounds amazing! It’s super light weighing only 7.7lbs and you do not need to manually change the height between hardwood and carpet floors. Plus, I love the fact that is has a bag. No more dirty, dusty canisters!

  526. I learned that you can swich from hardwood and tile to plush and frieze carpet without stopping to manually adjustment the vacuum.

  527. I love that it is only 7 lbs. The lightness would be great for our two story home.

  528. The wireless QuickSwitch® in the handle lets you easily select the right power level and move smoothly across carpet, fine rugs and bare floors. Very cool!!!

  529. Jaclyn Blunier says:

    I like how light (7.7#!) it is. Having 3 levels to clean, this is a must!

  530. Heather Lord says:

    I love the Side brushes which will make cleaning up against baseboards and edges easy. Great for all the puppy dust bunnies I have at home!

  531. I love that it is self-propelled and that has an effortless way to move around obstacles.

  532. Heather Curry says:

    It’s only 7.7pounds! Thanks for the giveaway and all of your great tips!

  533. Laura Wood says:

    I like the “Easy Snap” cord clip, no more running my cord over while I’m vacuuming!!!

  534. I just learned that not only is this vacuum amazing, and work on multiple floor types with only two settings, but it is also WIRELESS?! I’ve actually never heard of a wireless vacuum, and I was already sold before I knew that, so that’s even better!

  535. It’s so light! 7.7 pounds.

  536. Wendy Casuscelli says:

    Hi Toni! I am so excited to participate in this giveaway! I have 2 Labs that shed an UNBELIEVABLE amount so I am vacuuming our wall to wall carpet everyday. We have a 2 story, 3000 sq ft house so the fact that the Oreck is only 7.7 lbs is a godsend! I love that it has the hepa filter to help eliminate some of the dog dander. I am very excited about the side sweeper to get along baseboards as that is where all the dog hair ends up! LOL! Hope to hear from you soon! ;)

  537. I learned that it has swivel-steering, which I assume makes it great at maneuvering.

  538. INCLUDES the had vac! That’s pretty cool!

  539. Magnesium RS is the lightest, full-powered, swivel-steering upright vacuum cleaner in America.

  540. Lisa Smith says:

    I learned that it has side brushes! I think that is so cool!

  541. It’s only 7.7 pounds!

  542. OMG… the newest addition to the Oreck Magnesium line weighs only 7.7 pounds and has a new SlimSwivel design making vacuuming easier than ever!!!!! A definite must!!!!!

  543. I LOVE how flat it lays to go under beds, grea!

  544. Marissa says:

    I learned that it is the lightest vacuum in the US!

  545. Absolutely. Love. Oreck; although, time for an upgrade to the Magnesium RS (Latest); 7.7 lbs. (lightest); that swivels!!!

  546. Kristina Ardeljan says:

    I learned from Oreck’s website that the vacuum virtually lies flat! We have tall furniture that I am constantly having to move so I can sweep underneath. This vacuum would eliminate that hassle! I currently use a Dyson, which is great for my carpets but not great on my wood and tile. And it most certainly does not fit under my furniture, even the beds!

  549. Oreck, a great American made vacuum, is under 8 pounds and can be used on any surface, has incredible suction and its two speed Quick switch in the handle makes it the lightest, swivel steering vacuum in America! It features a long 20 foot cord and has 5 tools and HEPA filter to reach every corner in your home. I would love to use this in my home!

  550. I love that it works on all floor types and only weighs 7.7 lbs!

  551. Jill Rosier says:

    I love the fact that it folds flat to vacuum under things and has side bruches to help clean edges and baseboards!!

  552. I learned it costs $299 now I need onw weather I win or not. Thanks!

  553. Michelle says:

    This only uses bags, not canister. Replacement bags are $19.99 for 6.

  554. WOW! What a machine. I really like the idea that it lays flat. And……lol….it only weighs in at 7.7 lbs. Swivel too! It certainly is lighter than my hoover.I also like that it has side brushes on it.Sounds like a dream machine. I have not ever won anything, but it would be nice to dream!! Hoping to win!! Thank you for the opportunity!

    This vacuum sounds amazing. I like that you can go from carpet to laminate floors. I can’t believe that it is so light, 7.7lbs is awesome. That would be ideal for vacuuming the stairs. Between my 3 kids and our dog, the steps are always dirty. The side brushes would be ideal to get the trapped dog hair along the baseboards and help me keep the house clean for my son’s allergies.

  556. It lays flat to get under furniture, something my dyson definitely doesn’t do!

  557. Jesscia says:

    I learned that the Magnesium RS swivels and easily goes under beds.. Looks like a great vacuum

  558. Side brushes…how cool! Also love the furniture-friendly design!

  559. I learned its SUPER LIGHT! Much easier to carry around!

  560. Britany Presley says:

    I loved the fact that this one is so light.I am 17 weeks pregnant and I’m not supposed to be doing much heavy lifting, but my current one is so heavy, I don’t get it out as often as I should.

  561. April was in CT now CA says:

    I love that it has a furniture friendly low profile design which is something I’ve been wanting since my current Dyson doesn’t get under the edge of cabinets or under furniture.

  562. I learned that it automatically adjusts which is amazing for when I go from area rugs to hardwood and tile.

  563. Anna Studer says:

    I learned it’s lightweight, easy to change the bag, and best of all it’s made right here. It looks like a great vacuum. I love my Dyson, but I would try it!

  564. Anna Studer says:

    I learned it’s very lightweight, bag is easy to change, and best of all it’s made right here. I have had a Dyson for 10 years, but I would love to see what the Oreck could do!

  565. Meg Merkley says:

    I learned its light weight at 7.7 lbs. Its swivels!

  566. Love that it is just 7.7 lbs! My 2-year old (who loves to help me clean) will be using it more than me! :)

  567. Tara Dunham says:

    The HEPA inner bag captures pollen, household dust, smoke, animal dander and mold spores. What is not to love? This is a great giveaway.

  568. Tori yates says:

    Learned there is no manual adjustments in switching from carpet to hardwood!! Love that!!!!!!

  569. I learned several thigns from the website but my favorite is still that its a hepa filter. I can only use hepa filtration vacs since me and my little guy have bad allergies. Looks like an amazing vac.
