    Mar 25, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Unique Water Reservoir Keeps Dust From Blowing
    Cons: Outrageous Price

    Summary: Believe it or not, that was actually the opening line I was required to use in my sales pitch for the Rainbow vacuum cleaner when I was a salesman for the company over a dozen years ago. I donít know if Rainbow is still using the same pitch, but if they ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Lasts a long time, holds value, good for allergies, company has long track record
    Cons: sales model, price, some inconvenience

    Summary: I am now selling these part time and have no bias, I actually started selling them because the product does as advertised. My wife and I are doing it as a team as she has bad asthma and only through actually using the product did we discover the benefit. ... read more

    Pros: Excellent suction that does not quit.  No stinky vacuum smell.
    Cons: Expensive!  Very awkward to assemble, heavy, difficult to maneuver

    Summary: This Rainbow E series vacuum uses water to collect dust and debris instead of a traditional bag or filter.  Dirt, dust and hair and captured in the water and do not contaminate the air.  In fact, the unit can also be used as an air ... read more

    Cons: One Rainbow , Two daughters.  Big argument on who is going to inherit the machine.

    Summary: I owned an older model rainbow when I was first married to my first husband.  It did an exceptional job, and was extreamely appreciated by my neighbour when their basement flooded one spring.  I brought it over and we cleaned  all the ... read more

    Pros: no dust blowby
    no bags or filters needing replacement
    Cons: expensive

    Summary: My "ex" took ours as I recall, but we used one for nearly 10 years.  Yes, it maintains good suction always. Yes it traps nearly ALL dirt, dust, fiber, etc.  Yes it uses plain old water out of the faucet and no disposable filters or bags.  ... read more

    Pros: Powerful, easy to use, aromatherapy, WORKS, Cleans well, makes house smell nice.
    Cons: It should have a retractable cord. and the hose should be longer for stairs.

    Summary: I am not one to use a vacuum around the house. My wife is always the one who likes to clean. We have used everything from Hoover, to Dysons, Kirby, and Oreck. With all those bought I could have saved my money and bought a rainbow. My wife who suffers ... read more

    Pros: Didn't commit!
    Cons: Salesman stole my dignity, my freedom of choice, insulted my intelligence and authority.

    Summary: The demo is 10% product and 90% sales pitch.  Would you spend $2,000 on a new fridge or TV without reading reviews first?  Would you let anyone into your house whom you knew would make you feel stupid, insult your old vacuum, insult your ... read more

    Pros: cleans good, reliable
    Cons: expensive, hard to clean motor "seperator" and water basin

    Summary: I have a Rainbow vacuum cleaner. The rainbow vacuum would have been a better investment for me if it was closer to $1000 instead of $2000. They are just too expensive! It cleans well, but is very bulky and impossible to clean stairs with. The rainbow ... read more

    Pros: Reliability, power, no bags, no dust
    Cons: High price, difficulty of use, weight + complexity

    Summary: My parents got a Rainbow in 1996, I don't know what the model is. I thought they were crazy to spend $1600 on a vacuum cleaner. But, maybe they knew something I didn't or just got lucky.I say this because I was home last month (March 2011) and it ... read more

    Pros: none
    Cons: Too expensive for quality.
    Too heavy.
    Offensive odor if not emptied.

    Summary: I feel like such a sucker after spending so much money on a vacuum that does nothing better than a vacuum you can buy at walmart for less than $100.  I never buy from a door-to-door salesman and I will never again.  I have multiple dogs so ... read more

    Cons: Doesn't pick up well, Price,To big and heavy to lug up and down stairs.

    Summary: I bought the Rainbow for just over $2000.00 in 2009. I was lead to believe that it was the best vacuum that was ever made. Since it needed no bags and was filtered through water it would never clog and cleaned the air at the same time. It also ... read more
