Numatic, which makes the popular Henry line of vacuum cleaners, has jumped into the cordless vacuum market with a new addition to its lineup, the Henry Fast.
Many people will be familiar with the brand’s range of anthropomorphized vacuums, with the original Henry being joined by Hetty, James and George.
In addition to looking friendly, vacuums are workhorses capable of vacuuming all sorts of dust, dirt, debris, and debris, and they’re also known for being reliable and robust, making them a reliable DIY-er’s companion.
The Henry Quick is a departure for Numatic as it is cordless and is a vacuum cleaner rather than a bulkier can model like the standard Henry range, but it promises the same robustness and reliability. We got a chance to take a spin on the new vacuum, and you can find out what we think in our quick Henry review. (opens in new tab).
Henry has been independently ranked as the UK’s most trusted vacuum cleaner brand, and Numatic is one of the few companies that designs, engineer and manufactures its floor cleaning products in the UK, where it has sold over 14 million Henrys. . However, the brand is not known for innovation in the same way that Dyson and other manufacturers of the best cordless vacuum cleaners are, but based on our review, the wait was worth it.
The Henry Quick is a cordless vacuum that offers powerful cleaning, generous capacity and completely dust-free emptying. It’s packed with new technologies and hassle-free features, including a smart disposable bag or ‘pod’ system for one-click emptying. The pods have a 1 liter capacity, which is more than most leading vacuums, and offers up to 60 minutes of powerful cordless performance.
Our reviewer was initially a little reserved about this new vacuum cleaner, as she’s not very fond of bagged vacuums. However, her verdict was that while bagged vacuuming might seem like old news, the Henry Quick seems to prove that good ideas never go out of style. It eliminates the horrible clouds of dust you usually get from emptying the dust collector of a regular cordless vacuum and the need to wash and dry the filters.
What has been identified when using a bag is that you obviously cannot see how much debris is filling up the canister. On the downside you will need to factor in the cost of the pods as they are not reusable – a pack of 10 will cost you. £19.99 on Amazon (opens in new tab).
