And the cord is plenty long enough and wraps around the bottom easily enough for storage. It's easy to clean out. We use it a lot for cleaning cat hair off couches, vacuuming the vehicles out, and I think my favorite feature is the small hose that helps reach into smaller areas and corners of the house.
