Best Electric Erasers 2018 – [Buyer’s Guide]Last Updated December 1, 2018
Best Electric Erasers of 2018
Many models on the market may be confusing to a person who is shopping for their first time. Here are my top picks with detailed reviews, comparison charts and buying guides to help you purchase the perfect item for your needs. I make the search easier for you, by reviewing the best electric erasers on the market. There are dozens of choices for an electric erasers these days. These are composed of modern styling with modern technology to match it. Here are some good examples.
Test Results and Ratings
№1 – Battery Operated Pencil Eraser Electric Eraser with 21 Eraser Refills for Graphite Pencil And Color Pencils
Why did this electric erasers win the first place?
I really enjoy the design. It is compact, comfortable and reliable. And it looks amazing! I was completely satisfied with the price. Its counterparts in this price range are way worse. The product is very strong. Its material is stable and doesn’t crack. I don’t know anything about other models from this brand, but I am fully satisfied with this product.
Why did this electric erasers come in second place?
I like this product. For such a low price, I didn’t even hope it to be any better. It’s decently made. Managers explained me all the details about the product range, price, and delivery. The material is pretty strong and easy to wash if needed. The design quality is top notch and the color is nice.
Why did this electric erasers take third place?
The material is incredibly nice to the touch. It has a great color, which will suit any wallpapers. It is inconvenient to use due to the size. I am going to get something different next time. This price is appropriate since the product is very well built. I liked the design. We’ve been using it for 2 months and it still looks like brand new.
Electric Erasers Buyer’s Guide
Gum erasers (also called art gum erasers) have a completely different feel than that of a Pink Pearl. While these are also made out of rubber, they are much softer than what we consider typical rubber erasers. When used, gum erasers tend to crumble but don’t worry, this it supposed to happen! The crumbs actually help absorb the graphite. The nice thing about gum erasers is that since they crumble when erasing, they do not tear up your paper. However, they also tend to not last as long as other erasers. Like the Pink pearl, art gum erasers are ideal for erasing graphite on paper. You’ll recognize these as being brown in color, sometimes semi-transparent.
Vinyl erasers, also called plastic erasers, are the toughest erasers on this list. If not used carefully, they can easily tear through paper. These erasers are definitely handy as they can erase almost anything, even ink! Vinyl erasers are preferred by draftsmen because of their clean and complete erasing. They often come in white and can be found in a variety of shapes.
Pencil erasers, or erasils, are made out of vinyl (as mentioned above) and come in pencil form. They can be sharpened to a point with a regular pencil sharpener the same as you would an ordinary pencil, making them ideal for small details, such as highlights in hair. It’s always a good idea to wipe the tip of the eraser while working so you don’t smear graphite back on your work. Don’t forget that since these are made of vinyl they are very tough and can damage your paper if not used carefully!
Where would we be without erasers? Even without an official eraser, there’s always an alternative. Believe it or not, crust-less bread was used in Japan during the years of 186and 1912! As you can see, there have been many different kinds of erasers since then (rubber, vinyl, kneaded, etc.) each with unique qualities. Most of the time kneaded erasers are recommended for artists but you may prefer one of the other options available. We suggest trying a few out and finding what works best for you! And if you end up using bread as an eraser, let us know how well it works!
Sakura Foam Erasers are gentle and effective.
The Sakura Foam Erasers is our favorite all-purpose eraser. It is made from soft plastic that erases thoroughly with remarkably little pressure. It produces almost no streaking. It is easy to clean up after since used bits of eraser come off and clump together as you use it. The Sakura Foam is available as a standard block-style eraser or with a special break-reducing sleeve. These Sakura Arch Foam Erasers are available in both white and black.
Use soft erasers to avoid paper damage.
Some erasers are made of hard materials or include pumice to help remove pencil marks. These can leave scuffs or even rub holes through paper, especially if used with hard pressure. Look for gentle erasers that don’t require you to damage your work to remove mistakes.
Erasers whose debris sticks together are easier to clean up after.
Most erasers leave some sort of mess behind as they rub the paper. This isn’t entirely bad – sloughing off dirty surfaces allows erasers to expose fresh areas and erase more effectively. Still, that’s no excuse for piles of fine eraser dust. Look for erasers whose residue sticks together into larger pieces for easy cleanup.
Sakura Sumo Grip Erasers
Sakura Sumo Grip Erasers hug the paper for greater control.
Sakura Sumo Grip Erasers are similar to Sakura Foam Erasers but firmer and grippier. This makes them easier to control so that you don’t accidentally erase more work than you mean to. They erase effectively with little pressure and roll their crumbs together for easy cleanup. Like the Uni Boxy, their black color keeps them from looking dirty. Kids will love the fun sumo wrestler on each eraser sleeve. Sakura Sumo Grip Erasers come in several sizes and a retractable version.
Artists use erasers to do more than just fix mistakes. Soft block erasers like the Sakura Foam and Kokuyo Campus Student Eraser For 2B Lead are ideal for gently removing pencil sketches that have been inked over. Kneaded and precision erasers let you remove or lighten small areas of graphite without disturbing the surrounding work.
Prismacolor Kneaded Rubber Erasers are easy to shape.
Kneaded erasers are particularly good for art because they can be formed into different shapes and lift graphite from paper without rubbing. This lets you remove or lighten very precise areas with no risk of smudging. Prismacolor Kneaded Rubber Erasers have a pleasant texture and are soft enough to shape easily. They lift graphite well and lightened colored pencil marks better in our tests than any of the other kneaded erasers.
For Colored Pencils
Most colored pencils are not very erasable, but they will usually lighten when erased. This is handy for lightening over-pigmented areas and adding highlights to artwork. Some colored pencils are specifically made to be erasable. You can see how well they and other colored pencils erase in our Guide to Colored Pencils.
Ink is known for its permanence, but ink erasers do exist. They are typically hard and abrasive to allow them to scrape ink from the surface of the paper. This makes them especially likely to damage paper, so it’s best to only use them for small mistakes. If you want to correct larger errors, stick with correction tape and fluid or use erasable ink pens.
Pentel Hyperaser Clic Ink Eraser
The Pentel Hyperaser left less debris than other ink erasers.
Of all the ink erasers, the Pentel Hyperaser produced the best results with the least mess. Its stiff, fiberglass-infused eraser rubbed completely through our ballpoint and colored pencil test lines. It only partly removed our fountain pen sample. It produced a significant amount of fine eraser dust and visibly damaged the paper surface. The Hyperaser works best when used for details. Its convenient retractable design, narrow profile, and stiff material make it easy to direct at discrete areas.
We divided our erasers into three categories for testing: traditional, kneaded, and ink. We defined traditional erasers as any erasers intended to erase pencil marks through rubbing. This includes retractable and novelty erasers in addition to more typical block erasers. Kneaded erasers are designed to lift pencil marks from paper without a rubbing motion. Ink erasers are any erasers intended to remove ink rather than pencil.
We used three swatches to test our traditional erasers:
We used a Prismacolor Premier pencil to make the colored pencil swatch. These pencils are difficult to erase due to their high wax content. Other colored pencils should perform similarly or better. To make sure the tests were easily comparable, we rubbed each swatch the same number of times. The “Crumbs” column shows the “4B Graphite” swatch before we brushed away the debris generated by the eraser.
We tested the kneaded erasers against the same kinds of graphite and colored pencil swatches as the traditional erasers. Instead of rubbing the swatches, however, we formed the erasers to a point and pressed down with a twisting motion.
Ink erasers are not intended to remove pencil, so we replaced the graphite swatches with lines of ballpoint and fountain pen ink. We also used them against Prismacolor Premier pencils to test how well they removed difficult colored pencil marks.
Rubber erasers are what most people think of when they think of erasers. These classic erasers include the common pink eraser and the ones found on the backs of pencils. They are usually made from a blend of rubber and pumice and tend to smear. The pumice in the eraser can be abrasive to paper. However, there are some rubber erasers that have an improved formula, like the Tombow Mono Non PVC Eraser. These are more gentle on paper and leave no residue or smearing.
If you are allergic to natural rubber latex, look for erasers made from synthetic rubber or choose vinyl erasers instead. You can consult our end table to see which erasers are not made with natural rubber latex.
Also known as plastic erasers, soft vinyl erasers provide an easy, clean erase as leftover residue tends to clump together. They are similar to rubber erasers in that they may be abrasive enough to damage paper, but manufacturers have experimented with different types of plastic to minimize paper trauma. Plastic is a popular material for erasers because it is easily manipulated to have different shapes and properties. Iwako Novelty Erasers are made from plastic, as are the gentle Sakura Foam Erasers.
Some vinyl erasers are made with chemical compounds called phthalates. These help make plastics flexible but may also affect people’s health if ingested. Some people prefer to avoid phthalates altogether even though the chance of exposure from erasers is low. You can check our end table to see which of our erasers are not made with phthalates.
Kneaded erasers are made from a soft type of rubber that can be pulled and kneaded with your hands. Graphite adheres to them by touch. This lets them remove pencil marks with no residue or debris. The graphite they pick up quickly makes their exposed surfaces dirty, but you can “clean” them by stretching and folding them them just like bread dough. This hides the graphite inside the eraser and exposes a new, clean surface. Kneaded erasers may smear or get sticky if kept in a warm area.
HOW WE APPROACH RESEARCH & TESTING
Our writers draw on their personal expertise, consult our in-house subject matter experts, and do extensive research to make our guides as accurate and comprehensive as possible. We then test every finding that makes it through the research stage. Only the techniques and tools whose performance we personally confirm make it into our guides as recommendations.

I say “revisited” because, back in the Dark Ages (pre-BookThink days), I wrote an article for another blog on erasers.
In preparing for that article I tested a number of erasers, one of which was the Sakura Electric Eraser, which I was allowed to try out in an art supply store. I didn’t buy one at the time, but in retrospect I think I should have. Why? Have any of these things ever happened to you?
I’ve done this kind of damage and more with erasers over the years. The issue, essentially, is control. With a handheld eraser there just isn’t much – and even less as you apply more pressure. A lso, though an eraser may start out with edges, which do give you at least some control, they are quickly rounded over.
I must tell you that I investigated a large number of electric erasers before making a purchase. I read numerous reviews, watched videos, etc., and was surprised that some of the most highly sought after EE’s are no longer manufactured, nor are the erasers that were used with them. One model in particular – you can find a video demonstration of it on YouTube if you’re interested – things and hope that it would pop up sometime, I bought what appeared to me to be one of the best available brands – a Sakura SE2000 Electric Eraser Kit.
There’s a lot to like about it. It’s cordless, ergonomically friendly – it feels like a pen in your hand – quiet, smoothly operating, and the metal eraser holder fits into the head of the
EE very snugly, allowing for the application of heavier pressure when necessary.
The first thing I noticed about the Sakura was the pinpoint control I had over the erasing process both in directing it precisely at the marking I wanted to remove and applying as little pressure as possible to get the job done. The result was an erasure that left little or no evidence behind on a variety of surfaces – and I’m sure that all of you know that manual erasing, though it may remove a marking entirely, often leaves an area of surface abrasion that can be seen, sometimes to the considerable detriment of the book. This is especially prevalent with age toned, coated, colored and pulpy surfaces. Colored surfaces are very problematic if the color has been applied to the surface as opposed to dyed throughout during its manufacture. I should also add that the erasers themselves are vinyl – that is, there is no grit impregnated in them, so the surface being erased is less subject to abrasion. A bonus: Vinyl erasers to not accumulate dirt or graphite, unlike the notorious Pink Pearl.
The next thing I noticed about this EE was the speed with which markings could be removed – noticeably faster than I could have manually erased them. If you’re erasing a dozen or so underlinings, this can make a significant difference in time and effort. If you’re ever done a lot of erasing, you know that it can almost become an athletic event. The Sakura requires remarkably little effort.
Now, as you’re using this EE, holding it at an angle to the surface, you’ll naturally form a pointed tip, and it’s this tip that allows for truly precision erasing – in fact, artists use it to draw exceptionally fine lines for, say, hair.
I’ve also experimented some using the Sakura to remove soiling from book covers and the bottom edges of text blocks, where soiling often accumulates near the fore edge end, and had good results, in some cases surprisingly good. When erasing along edges of text blocks, apply very light pressure and make sure the rotation of the EE is parallel to the edges of the leaves. Direction of rotation is also important when erasing markings near the edge of a surface, always making sure that the direction is toward the edge, not away from it.
Oddly, ink eraser refills were once available for this unit but no longer. They were solvent based, not grit impregnated, so their effectiveness may not have justified their continued manufacture.
If there is one caution about using the Sakura, it’s to stay alert to the metal holder in relation to how much of the eraser is projecting beyond it. If the eraser wears down to it,
My electric eraser
Using an electric eraser for the first time is rather startling – one never knew that a small stub of eraser could move so fast – then it starts to be rather satisfying as you begin to realise that erasing marks will now become a totally different experience. No more frustration with smearing. No more holes in the paper. From now on it’s clean living………..
Until time comes to replace the first eraser. Then the virtues and vices of various different models start to emerge.
I won’t bore you with the ones which I am less happy and rather will introduce you to my dirt cheap super light battery powered Jakar eraser pen.
The huge advantage of this one for me is its plastic body which means that the only real weight in the pen are the two batteries. This makes it very easy to use. I found that after using it for a bit it really does start to seem like a pen – or rather like a fat pencil which erases rather than making a mark. Used slowly, it removes all trace of graphite and coloured pencil very cleanly. Used quickly and lightly – sort of dabbing action – it can lighten without removing all colour. Replacing erasers and batteries is easy peasy compared to some (pull the eraser out and then use the other end before discarding and replacing). The whole set-up is also amazingly cheap. Jakar is associated with Caran d’Ache and at the Artist and Illustrators Fair last year I bought a load of them (one in every pencil case with spares to lose / file away and forget where you’ve put them etc etc).
Know when it’s dry
This purple glue lets you see where you apply it but dries clear.
After testing four leading glue sticks, we like Elmer’s Disappearing Purple School Glue Sticks best. They’re cheap, good at sticking stuff to other stuff, and simple to work with. As we discovered, the colored glue isn’t just a gimmick; it’s actually worth the minimal extra cost. The Elmer’s glue applies as an easy-to-see purple and gradually turns colorless, so you can tell which areas you’ve already glued.
We tested our sticks (Elmer’s Washable All Purpose, Elmer’s Disappearing Purple, the clear UHU stic, and the color UHU stic) by making rudimentary construction-paper art projects, gluing dimes and nickels to a piece of paper and suspending it from the bottom of a kitchen cupboard. We also uncapped each stick to see if any would dry out. All of the glues performed well; paper stuck to paper, and even after five days no nickels and dimes fell down from underneath my cupboard. (I’m still waiting.) After sitting uncapped for 1hours, each glue stick did dry out a bit, but chopping the dried ends off made them usable again.
The color UHU stic’s color-changing option was not as great as the Elmer’s. Although it applied well and did a fine job of gluing, its purple hue turned colorless much too quickly, negating the benefits of using tinted glue. —AK
Buying a stand-alone calculator is hard to justify these days when every phone has a capable one built in and Wolfram Alpha is easier to use than any graphing calculator. If you need a graphing calculator, typically your school will tell you which one to buy. But if you want a scientific calculator for use during exams where graphing calculators are prohibited, or if you simply love the feel of real buttons, we recommend the Texas Instruments TI-36X Pro because it has all the standard scientific-calculator functions (exponents, roots, scientific notation, etc.) and can solve for equations the way they appear in the textbook—no specialized notation for you to memorize. That makes it a great pick for students.
Out of the nine calculators we considered, the TI-36X Pro was the most user-friendly model approved for the NCEES FE exam—an essential criterion for engineering students. This gives it an edge over the otherwise comparable Sharp EL-W516XBSL. The Casio fx-11is another fine calculator, especially if you prefer stiffer buttons. But most people who are familiar with TI’s graphing-calculator interface (that is, anyone who has taken a calculus course lately) will find the TI-36X’s interface more familiar and easier to use. —Michael Zhao
How they work
Central to all pellet cookers is a digital controller similar to the controllers on modern indoor ovens. You select a temp you want, and there is an LED display that tells you the actual temp. Some of the controllers also are programmable so you can cook at a certain temp for a determined time. Some have leave-in meat probes that can dial back the ovento a holding temp when the meat hits its mark.
Pellet cookers usually have an auger or another feed mechanism that pushes the pellets into a burn pot typically about the size of a beer can ripped in half. An igniter rod sits in the bottom of the pot and when you turn on the grill it glows like the element on an electric stove. As the pellets ignite, a fan blows to feed them oxygen, and the igniter shuts off. The Traeger L’il Tex, an inexpensive model, draws 300 watts an hour while the igniter rod is on in the first four minutes, then it drops down to 50 watts an hour for the duration of the cook session, less than a standard light bulb.
Because the burn pot is small, there is usually a hot spot directly over it. Some units have an optional perforated section above the burn pot so you can put the meat over direct flame, but the ones I’ve tested still do not sear properly. And there is no way to set up a 2-zone cooking system with a cool zone. As with most other grills and smokers, the differences between lower and upper racks is not huge, so think of it as one heckuva indirect heat convection smoker with precision temperature control.
On the better models, a temperature probe in the oven area tells the controller what the temperature is and if it is below the target it tells the controller to feed more pellets and air. The best manufacturers, like MAK and Memphis, have designed their own versatile custom controllers that are easy to use and can hold a temperature within 5°F, tighter than many indoor ovens.
The MAK Pellet Boss will increase or decrease with the press of a button in 5°F increments and has a probe in the oven that keeps the temp pretty solid. As with any thermostatically controlled oven, even your indoor oven, the thermostat cycles heat on or off as needed. So it you set it for 225°F it cycles on til it hits 225°F, then off until it drops to 220°F, then on to 225°F. There are three meat probes and the Boss can be programmed to change the cooker temp when the meat hits a target. I’ve had one for several years outdoors in the Chicago winters and summers without a cover and no problems.
You may need an extension cord and not any cord will do. Read this article to calculate the size and capacity of the cord you will need.
Beware of the LMH controllers
Some cheaper models, such as the Brinkmann, have a controller with only three settings, Low, Medium, High (LMH), and there is no temperature probe in the oven to create a feedback loop. We do not recommend these units. You actually have less control over temp than you do on a gas or charcoal smoker. The whole reason to buy a pellet grill is because it is set-it-forget-it and it hits a temp and holds it regardless of the ambient air temp outside, winter or summer. On these LMH controllers, the temp fluctuates widely and it cannot correct itself for the weather. They just aren’t as smart as a digital device. Whether you’re smoking a few slabs of ribs on a scorching summer day, or six pork butts during a blizzard, the three position controller only knows auger on and off times for Low, Medium, and High. It has no information on the temperature inside the cook chamber.
The good news is that if you are stuck with one of these dogs, Ortech makes a controller that can be used to upgrade Brinkmann and Traeger controllers. If you own another brand and are interested in upgrading to a digital controller, contact the manufacturer of your smoker or Ortech.
A few words of caution
Before you buy, remember, pellet smokers need access to electricity. Maintenance is also an issue. There are moving parts on these grills. Moving parts eventually break. There is an auger with a motor, and a fan with a motor. There are proprietary electronics systems on these babies. Augers clog. Motors burn out. Electronics have bugs or fail. Especially when exposed to rain, snow, hot, and cold. When they fail, will the manufacturer have a replacement part?
In 200there were only two consumer pellet grill manufacturers. Today there are more than a dozen. The market for these relatively expensive devices is small but growing fast. Not all of these small manufacturers will survive. Forget the warranty and ask “When it breaks will the manufacturer still be in business?” They do not have repair shops near you. When it breaks will they be able to diagnose the problem over the phone? They may be able to figure it out, but then you have to buy the replacement parts and do the repair work yourself. Are you up to the task?
The built-in cords on outdoor cooking devices are often not long enough, and although regular household extension cords will work for rotisserie kits, they will not carry enough juice to keep you pellet smoker or electric smoker going. They could become a fire hazard as they heat up trying to deliver power to the unit. To extend the cord you need a large capacity cable as measured in amps. Here’s how to figure out what you need:
Watts ÷ Voltage = Amps
If your smoker needs 500 watts, and typical household voltage is 1to 120 volts,
500 ÷ 1= 4.5, so you need a cable that has a capacity of 4.amps.
For home models, get at least a amp, 1gauge, three prong cord (oddly, 1gauge is higher capacity than 1gauge). That’s more than you need, but better safe than sorry. Commercial models may have different requirements.
The best solution: Have an electrician custom make a cord the proper length for you. Don’t buy a cable much longer than you need it because the longer the cable, the higher the resistance and the power diminishes. You don’t want to see the equations for that.
If nothing else, magic erasers are known for their effectiveness, but they don’t last long and can be rather expensive.
The truth is, magic erasers are just tiny rectangular pieces of melamine foam with some cleaning agents inside But it’s not just the cleaning agents that makes them so effective.
This 100-pack costs just eight dollars.
They’re a tad smaller than the real deal, but I bought 100 plain sponges for the price of an pack.
Next, you need two common cleaning solutions, borax and baking soda, and you only need a tiny bit of each.
For those messy moments in the car, on the couch or between tight corners, sometimes a traditional vacuum just won’t cut it, but there are convenient hand-held vacuums for these jobs.
But before you buy your handy dandy device, which brand and model should you select? We put two of the most popular hand-held vacuums on the market head to head to help you out. Check out this vacuum cleaner comparison round. It’s the Bissell Pet Hair Eraser versus the Eureka Easy Clean.
Bissell Pet Hair Eraser Corded Hand Vacuum 33A1-B
NerdWallet takes you shopping: Our first contender is the Bissell Pet Hair Eraser Corded Hand Vacuum 33A1-B, a corded hand-held vacuum specifically designed for sucking up pet hair.
Created for spot cleaning, this lightweight, bagless hand vacuum features a cyclonic cleaning system, amps of power, a HEPA media filter, a dirt container, an easy-grip handle and a 16-foot power cord.
This red and black device comes with two nozzles. The first, a hard nozzle, is best suited for cleaning up dry messes. The second, a flexible contour nozzle, is designed to remove pet hair from upholstery-type surfaces.
Good fit for: The Bissell Pet Hair Eraser is an affordable and effective choice for pet owners who want to quickly remove Fido’s hair from multiple surfaces in their home.
Dyson Cinetic Big Ball Animal Vacuum
Dyson claims to have research showing that the Cinetic has the strongest suction of any vacuum on the market. Whether that’s true or not (and we have no reason to doubt them), this baby can suck up dirt and pet hair with the best of them. One reason for that is the company’s “Radial Root Cyclone” technology, which we don’t pretend to fully understand, but creates powerful circular air movement inside the machine, leading to outstanding suction.
The other reason is a self-adjusting cleaner head, which ensures the vacuum head maintains close contact with the floor or carpet (getting much deeper into carpet piles) and lets the powered air be used for its designed purpose instead of leaking out.
One other nice feature is the vacuum’s “ball technology,” featuring a round base that makes this Dyson much easier to maneuver in tight spaces than competitive models.
Like the other top choices on our list, the Animal Complete has a whole-machine lifetime
HEPA filtration to capture allergens and pollen, but this one is certified asthma and allergy friendly by aafa.org.
Watch the video below to understand how Dyson have designed their vacuum without a specific pre-motor filter. This means there are no removable filters which you need to wash or replace, and the vacuum never looses suction.
Dyson also does amazing portable electric power fans if you need to keep your pets cool in summer and have the bank account to accommodate.
A very powerful, maneuverable, fully featured HEPA vacuum that you will pay a premium price for, but those who own multiple pets would consider it money well spent.
Checking the specifications of the Dyson Cinetic Big Ball Animal Vacuum:
Shark Rotator NV75Powered Lift-Away TruePet Upright Vacuum
They could have come up with a better name, but it would be difficult for them to come up with a better vacuum and still sell it for less than the Dyson Cinetic. This lightweight upright machine with powered brush roller has extremely strong suction for floors and carpets.
And the Shark puts extra oomph into the cleaner head and the included handheld TruePet turbo brush by using motors to power them instead of relying on air pressure from the vacuum. That makes a big difference when you’re trying to suck accumulated pet hair from stair crevices and upholstery cracks.
The Shark TruePet is easy to move around the house, with easy-glide wheels and swivel steering. There’s a lifetime HEPA filter to capture 99.9% of pollen and allergens, along with a detachable canister for easy emptying.
Note: Shark has a slightly less expensive model (NV501), with similar suction and tools but fewer refinements (no control buttons on the handles etc.).
The NV75isn’t quite the equal of the Dyson Cinetic, but it comes very close at a more attractive price.
Looking at key specs for the Shark Rotator NV75Powered Lift-Away TruePet Upright Vacuum:
Hoover T-Series WindTunnel Pet Rewind Bagless Upright Vacuum, UH70210
This Hoover model beat out the Shark for the longest name but came in behind the Shark in our pet vacuum rankings. That’s because it’s a little more cumbersome to operate, and because it does better with carpeted floors and upholstery than on hardwood. This is far from a pretender, though; Hoover WindTunnel technology has been providing outstanding suction for the company’s vacuums for a long time now, and the suction you get from the Pet Rewind will take care of most pet hair problems with relative ease.
One of the reasons we say this machine is more cumbersome is that the cleaner head doesn’t automatically adjust to the surface it’s vacuuming like the first two models on our list. You have to manually adjust the brush roller to the correct position (there are five options) before you can get good suction on your floor. And while the performance isn’t as good as we’d like on wooden floors, a nice touch is that the UH702has a pedal which lets you shut off the brush roller when you leave the carpet – so it doesn’t toss dirt all over the place. There is an air-powered pet hand turbo tool and a pet upholstery brush included with the vacuum.
This model has HEPA and carbon filters for allergy protection.
While it doesn’t outclass the Dyson or Shark it comes at a price well below both. It might be worth seeing whether the Hoover works for you before laying out the big bucks.
The facts and figures on the Hoover T-Series WindTunnel Pet Rewind Bagless Upright Vacuum:
Miele Dynamic UCat And Dog Upright Vacuum
Miele is one of the prestige names in the vacuum industry, and it has the prices to prove it. This model is the most expensive (and the heaviest) of all the pet hair vacuums on our list, and while it has huge suction power and does a terrific job at collecting the most stubborn clumps and stray hairs, we’re not sure it’s worth more than the Dyson Cinetic.
One big advantage the Dynamic Udoes have over its competitors, including the Dyson, is that it’s extremely quiet – which can be important to those with skittish pets.
The operation of this machine is as convenient as you’d expect from a Miele product; its cool “swivel neck” technology lets you steer the machine just by twisting your wrist, and there’s also the ability to lower the body of the vacuum to the floor to get all the way under furniture. A handheld turbo brush comes with this model. One more plus: the always-solid Miele construction and engineering.
Filtration is via an “AirClean” system with activated charcoal which removes pet odor from the air as well as allergens; you can also buy an optional HEPA filter. Dirt collection is in self-sealing bags.
The Miele Uis expensive but a nice machine. Whether the price is justifiable depends on whether you feel the brand name and cool features are worth it to you.
Checking out the specs on the Miele Dynamic UCat And Dog Upright Vacuum:
Eureka AS2130A As One Pet Bagless Upright Vacuum “Isn’t there a decent, cheap pet hair vacuum out there?” Yes, there is, even though we’re not quite sure we understand its name. This Eureka model comes in at a very affordable price and uses the company’s multi-cyclonic technology and a design which limits twists and bends in its air path, to provide enough suction to collect most stubborn pet hair, particularly on carpets.
The AS2130A is very lightweight (since for this price you’re going to get a mostly-plastic shell) but that makes it easy to use and to be maneuvered into tight spaces. It comes with a “PET Power Paw” for deep cleaning of pet hair as well as a pet dusting brush.
This is a relatively-noisy vacuum without HEPA or other special filters, but it does clean up pet hair well and is the best alternative at the lower price level.
This Product has been discontinued.
If you are a fan of LG and its innovative electrical and electronic products, then you will certainly love the LG’s LcV900B canister vacuum. It’s one of the best vacuums for pet fur and here is why. The innovative Kompressor feature means you can pick up thrice as much dirt as in other models before the cleaner is emptied. This is a huge performance advantage over many of the industry brands. You can also cover greater surface area when cleaning thanks again to its innovative DualForce suction technology. With the retractable cord, you can easily reach the farthest of places on your floor. With its ultra-lightweight, extra powerful suction, bagless feature, ease of use, and good quality ergonomic design, the LG’s LcV900B canister vacuum cleaner offers one of the best options for pet fur removal in the house.
With so many vacuum cleaners and vacuum cleaner brands out in the market, choosing the right product for your needs can be a very confusing affair. There are specific factors that you need to evaluate before settling on the right vacuum cleaner. Here are a few factors which you should consider to ensure you find the best vacuum for pet hair that will meet your cleaning needs:
These are two words you will bump into a lot when shopping for your vacuum cleaners. So what is the difference between the two types?
In terms of the cleaning action, the performance is usually equal, and will typically depend on the model you buy.
What you choose is thus more or less dependent on your personal preferences.

Santa also brings architecture supplies.
When I was in college, every year for Christmas I was gifted architecture supplies. During the holidays I told everyone that I didn’t want any gifts, but they insisted I shared my laundry list of school supplies that could really help me out.
My family was really great, I pretty much had them convinced that going to architecture school was kind of like going off to war.
An electric eraser is the single best investment for any architecture student. It’s my favorite drafting tool. I used my electric eraser on a daily basis during college. It works beautifully erasing on vellum, Mylar, bond or whatever. I would even use it to polish things. I bought mine the first year and I still have it today.
My architecture school building was an old horse stable. In plan, it was a very long and skinny building. Sometimes it felt like I would spend all night back and forth and up and down. Eventually I just started using a razor scooter to move around the architecture building. I got this idea to start riding a razor scooter, when I saw a middle aged Indian women riding one down the super long hallways at MIT and thought to myself ”What a great idea!”
U Brands Contempo Magnetic Dry Erase Board White Frame
Priding themselves on creating products that are always evaluated and designed with the needs of the customers above anything else, U Brands is a solid competitor on the market for office products which includes whiteboards. Their Contempo magnetic dry erase board available in two measurements (8.x 1Inches & 1x 1Inches) is a serious contender for occupying the place of the best whiteboard on the market.
The surface of the Contempo is resistant to staining, ghosting and is highly durable. Erasing it can be done quickly and one great advantage of the piece is the bulletin board functionality which you can benefit from by using the Pin-It cork magnet included. This magnet enables the repositioning of the pin anywhere on the board.
U Brands also includes a dry erase marker complete with an eraser to cover some basic writing needs. The contoured marker cap has a special design to prevent the marker from rolling off the surface or tray. A hassle-free mounting kit is included to fix the whiteboard on almost any flat surface. To help the process, double sided velcro mounting strips are provided.
U Brands has designed an impressive whiteboard that contains enough features to make studying or pinning important notes an easy and fun job. The only complaint I would have is regarding the built-in eraser of the marker which doesn’t work too well but considering the overall quality of this dry-erase board, I think it fits well on the list of best whiteboards.
First of all thanks for reading my article to the end! I hope you find my reviews listed here useful and that it allows you to make a proper comparison of what is best to fit your needs and budget. Don’t be afraid to try more than one product if your first pick doesn’t do the trick.
Most important, have fun and choose your Electric Erasers wisely! Good luck!
