"Swerve. Twist. Pivot. Coast." The latest evolution in Dirt Devil's Designer Series is the upright Kruz. The Kruz is obviously different because it's full length, as opposed to the preceding hand held Kone and Kurv. As is true with any survival of the fittest scenario, it has also gotten stronger. The Kruz weighs in at 12 volts, which must be noticeably more powerful than the Kone (7.2 v) and the Kurv (9.6 v). Again, Karim Rashid is the brain behind the vacuum's shapely, slightly spacey design. But, as far as we can tell, the upright is only available in the slick silver shade. Since we haven't yet tried out the Kruz (or the Kone or Kurv), we're curious for reviews, especially since the hand held models didn't exactly suck up the blue ribbon. Has anyone tried out this suction machine?
The Kruz retains free-range cordless movement because it charges while sitting in its own storage base. It appears, however, that it is not meant for carpets or rugs at all and it's certainly not able to handle wet messes. But look how effortlessly the lady on the Dirt Devil website tidies her kitchen! She must be smiling at the 360 degree range of movement and the "Soft Glide Technology." Ready to test it out? Dirt Devil is currently offering 10-20% discount on their entire Designer Series.
