Eureka Mighty Mite 3670G Review

Users like the powerful suction that works well on hard floors and low carpet. The light weight and long cord and hose make it very easy to tote around the house and even out to the car.

We can't help but notice the overwhelming number of positive reviews the Eureka Mighty Mite 3670G receives. This bagged canister vacuum garners more than 750 reviews at Amazon and more than 700 at Walmart where it averages 4.2 and 4.5 stars, respectively. Comments at both sites reveal that most users are thrilled with the might of this little machine, saying the powerful suction attacks dirt, sand, hair -- you name it. One reviewer reports using it to clean an entire house top to bottom -- carpeted stairs and all -- on a regular basis; another lets it tackle the car interior; and a third says cleaning mini-blinds with this vacuum is akin to having the perfect teeth-cleaning tool. Other reviewers consider it the bargain of the century, adding that the feather weight and accessible attachments up the user-friendly quotient.

Even so, the Eureka Mighty Mite claims its share of detractors. A handful of reviews grouse about the build quality, saying the plastic connectors are hard to work with and the power cord gets uncomfortably hot. And a few assert the suction is too weak to pull up carpet lint or pet hair from smooth surfaces while some carp about kinks in the plastic hose and a cord that doesn't retract automatically.

The Eureka Mighty Mite 3670G (starting at $57, Amazon) is the lightest canister vacuum on our list, weighing a svelte 8.6 pounds, a feature that many reviews consider desirable. (One user initially bought it for the kitchen, but says the combination of power and mass prompted her to start using it everywhere.) This model boasts a washable standard filter, a cord that stretches 20 feet, and a hose that run 6 feet. The Mighty Mite features a 12-amp motor with fingertip controls and comes with a bare floor brush, crevice tool, dusting/upholstery brush, as well as two extension wands and a blower port. It cuts a 10-inch cleaning path.

There's almost nothing not to like about this small canister vacuum. Most reviewers say it's plenty powerful and easy to maneuver, and features ample attachments. Moreover, the price is certainly right.
