"Had it for about 2 weeks now and am very impressed with everything about it. It feels very sturdy and has great suction whether it's on tiled floors, timber, carpet or rugs. After my morning tidy up it's so quick to flit around the house with it. So much better than the Dyson "Animal' one that I've been using. I can't imagine anyone being sorry they bought it. :) "

"So happy with the suction from hard floors to carpet and how quiet it is compared to my last three vacuums, one for hard floors one for carpet and another Steam mop. Very impressed with the charge, I can even clean the whole house without having to charge in between or trip over cords while I change from one power point to the next."

I'm in! How do I buy my Kobold?

"I'm loving the Kobold Vacuum Mop, and so are our two senior dogs. They used to hate the vacuum cleaner (we had a big, noisy Dyson) and they both ran out of the room whenever I brought the vacuum out. Now, they don't move a muscle or bat an eyelid. They don't even wake from their slumber! It's a whole lot less hard work too, and a lot more effective than a mop. And, I'm not afraid to say it, I was disgusted by the colour of the cloths after the first clean, and amazed to see our floors a few shades brighter and shinier. The vacuuming and mopping is done in about the same time it was taking me to mop, and I can almost do the whole house on one charge. "

"I have just moved to a new Sydney CBD apartment with hard and carpeted floors. Having never had hard floors, I needed to find something that cleaned all surfaces. The city environment creates more surface dirt, and I am stunned at how this combination makes my floors gleam clean. Changing between the vacuum and mop is so fast, and the mop pad goes straight into the washing machine. There is no complicated need to wash and dry rollers like other mops. This is worth the money, especially as it is a quality German-made and designed product. I must also mention the integration with the My Kobold app, which allows you to see all the machine settings and personalise them to your liking."
