The $200 Bissell Pet Hair Eraser is specifically made to deal with animal dander. It has a "tangle-free" brush roll that Bissell says won't get wrapped up or bogged down by hair fibers.

Hoover SmartWash

Traditional carpet cleaners need to be switched manually between wash and dry modes. Not so with the $250 Hoover SmartWash. The machine flips between these functions automatically as you push it forward (wash) and pull it backward (dry).

Hoover SmartWash

The Hoover SmartWash automatically mixes its detergent solution, too. Just add the liquid cleaning concentrate to a dedicated receptacle on the machine. The SmartWash then combines it with water from its main tank on the fly.

Hoover SmartWash

Brushes scrub carpet fibers with the shampoo solution as you push the SmartWash forward. Pulling the machine backward signals it to suck up water, soap, and dirt, back into a separate collection tank.

Eureka PowerPlush

If the Eureka PowerPlush looks familiar, that's because it's the splitting image of Dyson's Cyclone V8 and Cyclone V10. The $180 Power Plush stick vac, though, is hundreds less than Dyson's most recent Cyclone V10 ($500). Despite its price, the PowerPlush is light, compact, and uses a soft roller head made for hardwood floors and low pile carpets.
