Shark Rocket Video Review – The One Vacuum That Does It All
I am already a true fan of Shark products. A Shark Navigator was one of the first purchases I made after we moved into our new house. When I found out I was going to get to review a new Shark Rocket, I was thrilled! Shark provided the product for this review, but all of the opinions are my own.
Shopping for a vacuum is tough. You want to find the one product that can do it all: carpets, area rugs, tight spaces, stairs, bare floors… and you want that vacuum without having to skip your mortgage or rent payment for the month. With a MSRP of $179.99, the Rocket is an affordable (yes, expensive, but not ridiculous) vacuum that handles any job in your home with ease. Check out this video review to see the Shark Rocket in action, find out how to use the attachments, and see how to store your vacuum.
The Shark Rocket has some serious deep cleaning powers when it comes to carpet. After just vacuuming our living room the day before, the Rocket was able to pull up all kinds of dirt, dust and general yuck. (Check out the before and after pictures below.) It never has any problems cleaning up pet hair and the canister is super easy to empty.
I absolutely love how well it cleans bare floor. I noticed that the hardwoods seemed super clean when I used the special bare floor attachment, but even I was surprised at how well the Rocket passed the oatmeal test in the video! I also love how the Rocket makes vacuuming stairs as easy as it can be. It’s one of my least favorite chores, but the self propelled action and the light, easy to maneuver vacuum make it so much better.
The Shark Rocket is available at most major retailers. I know most people would tell you that getting someone a vacuum as a gift is a horrible idea, but I completely disagree. This is a tool that will make your day to day life a little easier… and a lot cleaner!
