Review: Panasonic JetForce Bagless Upright Vacuum

With two dogs and four cats in our house, we do a LOT of vacuuming, especially this time of year. Tiki, especially, is really shedding a lot in this hot summer weather. Along with vacuuming up the fur, we also do extra vacuuming to control fleas naturally in our home.

So when we had the opportunity to review the new Panasonic “Jet Force Bagless” Upright Vacuum Cleaner MC-UL427, we jumped at the chance. They pointed out that this vacuum is of special interest to pet households, so we decided to put it to the test.

The bagless upright vacuum has cyclonic action with a HEPA filter system (which I especially appreciate, with my asthma).

We have both carpeted and bare wood floors so it was very good to see that the vacuum has a bare floor agitator shutoff and  soft wheels to prevent scratching of floors. For carpet, there’s an automatic carpet height adjustment and dual active edge cleaner. And I especially love the 24-foot-long cord which automatically reels up when it’s time to stop vacuuming!

Panasonic JetForce Vacuum Features for Pet Households

The JetForce gets its name from the the cyclonic filtration that never loses suction. The container is hourglass-shaped to keep the dirt, dust–and pet hair–in the bottom of the container where it’s compressed and stays away from the filter. The compressed dirt and hair forms a little dirt doughnut to then discard, keeping the air filter cleaner than most vacuums.

Another one of my favorite features is the Air Turbine. Like other attachments with the Panasonic JetForce, it attaches right on the vacuum for easy reach. The Air Turbine is a great attachment for cleaning pet fur off upholstery:

We give the Panasonic JetForce a big paws up in our fur-filled home!
