Dyson Cinetic DC54 Animal Complete Cylinder Vacuum Cleaner

Special offer

    Trade-in any vacuum and receive money off selected Dyson upright or cylinder machines.

    Conventional vacuums with bags clog and lose suction. Dyson upright and cylinder vacuums are different. Patented cyclone technology spins dirty air at high speeds, flinging microscopic particles out of the airflow and into the bin. There’s no bag, so there’s no loss of suction.

    From 10 Sept to 28 Oct 2014, you can trade-in your old vacuum cleaner of any make and get money off brand new selected Dyson upright or cylinder machines. The trade-in offer is available at all participating John Lewis stores and through our website.

    All Dyson upright and cylinder vacuums come with a free 5-year guarantee – parts and labour. And because they have lifetime washable filters and there are no bags to buy, there are no extra costs.

    Terms and conditions:

    The offer is only available if the customer agrees to dispose of an old vacuum cleaner he or she already owns by entering the promotional code DYSON100X at the end of checkout, and bringing their old vacuum cleaner to the small electrical department next time they visit a John Lewis store.

    If the customer wishes to return the product, only the discounted price paid will be refunded and the old vacuum will not be returned. Also available in John Lewis shops. Offer ends 28 Oct 2014.

Product information

The DC54 is the only vacuum that never loses suction. With Dyson Cinetic™ cyclones – Dyson's most efficient cyclone technology – there's no need to ever replace a bag or wash a filter. Ball™ technology means DC54 turns on the spot, following you without awkward moves. And Dyson's most advanced cleaner head technology ensures high pick-up across all floors.

Dyson Cinetic™ cyclone technology
54 Dyson Cinetic™ cyclones have high frequency oscillating tips that vibrate. This prevents the cyclone aperture from clogging. They are so efficient at dust separation that no filter maintenance is required – meaning no loss of suction.

No bags to buy, no filters to wash or replace.
Because of the efficiency of Dyson Cinetic™ cyclone technology, no pre-motor filter is required and the post-motor filter requires no maintenance. So there’s nothing to wash or replace. And with no bag, there are no extra costs.

Ball™ technology
Conventional cylinder vacuums can be awkward – they can be heavy to pull, head the wrong way and collide with obstacles. Dyson Ball™ vacuums are the only cylinder vacuums with a central steering mechanism. The pivot point is located near the centre of the machine, enabling it to make tighter turning circles and follow with greater control.

Reconfigured carbon fibre turbine head
Latest carbon fibre turbine head engineered for all floor types. Conductive carbon fibre brushes remove fine dust from hard floors, and stiff nylon brushes remove ground-in dirt from carpets. No need to turn the brush bar off when moving from one floor type to another.

Q & As

Dyson Cinetic DC54 Animal Complete Cylinder Vacuum Cleaner 4 5 10 10
Unfortunate buy Not impressed, I have owned 4 other Dyson vacuum cleaners in the past, this one falls short of my expectations. The cylinder needs cleaning out at least twice (the cylinder is difficult to clean out, you can not get in to get rid of the dust). I bought this as I have three Labradors, they moult every day, I did not want to spend a fortune on bags and thought that being a Dyson it would serve me as well as my previous 4 have done. Even the upright vacuums cylinder is smaller so it would not of mattered which I had chosen, think on Dyson you will lose my custom next time I need a new vacuum cleaner unless you get your act together. 08 July 2014
Fantastic Performance Have had an upright Dyson for years, but this is so much lighter and so much more powerful. The unit is light and easy to use and all the included accessories make it a good all round package. It's an expensive item, but if it lasts as long as my last Dyson, it'll have been worth it. 24 June 2014
Dyson DC54 Vacuum My main reason for changing from my old DC04 to a cylinder model was a cylinder model would be lighter to use and the range of tools impressive with one in particular suited for cleaning my wooden venetian blinds.The machine is well designed, simple to assemble and each component locks effortlessly in place.I was truly amazed at the powerful suck when using all the tools.The general carpet head works so well,even lifting the pile for enhanced cleaning.The stair tool was especially impressive,being super efficient both for the stairs and risers.The crevice tool,with its "bendy brush" extension was great for my blinds.I'm very pleased with this machine and wouldn't swap it for any other. 28 May 2014
a bit disappointing I usually love Dyson but this really isn't any different to the DC39 apart from the new Cinetic tech. It is a robust machine but it does not follow as you are lead to be believed and was still trapped in the doorway and around the kitchen island. The suction does seem strong though and there are plenty of heads and accessories to choose from. However the turbine head is noisy and it became quite irritating after a couple of rooms. I also noticed that the bin is easy to empty but nothing falls out when you do decide to empty. It remains trapped around the mesh and requires some degree of 'woman ' handling to get it out!!. The handle for said bin is a small triangular shaped piece of plastic which is difficult to hold on to and empty without dropping this expensive item on to the floor. I think the wand is just slightly too short and after the negative feedback on other models about this why didn't they increase?? After emptying the bin i could see that the cyclone area gets very dirty and I should imagine after a few months this will be caked in dust and dirt. I know Dyson test their machines and suck up lots of nice white powder but I don't do that in my house, its generally dirt and dust and hair etc. I would strongly advise you to test this machine in store first. Anyway thank goodness for the staff at the Tamworth store who let me return this Dyson.Excellent and fabby service from them at least. 10 May 2014
Does what it says Best thing about it is not have to buy bags though the cylinder doesn't contain much so needs emptying fairly frequently. I find the handle not very comfortale. The hard floor brush is not as efficient as my old Miele one. Overalll it is ok. 01 May 2014
Love it I have bought Dyson vacuum cleaners before but this one is the best yet - easy to use but very powerful and I don't mind emptying it - rather fascinating how much is picked up even going over a small area. My 16 year old is so impressed that he is even volunteering to vacuum. 22 April 2014
Excellent product I bought this to tackle two things - the gradual loss of suction that happens as filters clog (as they never seem to work as well after being washed), and the clogging that hairs cause for beater bars. So far this Dyson Cinetic has tackled both really well. It has no filters, so no need to remember to clean it. And the clever new cleaning head without a beater bar does a tremendous job of cleaning up hairs without needing to de-tangle everything afterwards. The Animal comes with a great selection of accessories and looks really good too. I couldn't really ask for anything more. 20 April 2014
Frighteningly good Amazing vacuum cleaner! This beauty is not light or cheap but is in a class of its own as far as picking up dirt goes. It got a scary amount of dust out of my carpets and no nasty filters to clean. It is a bit messy to empty, but that's my only niggle with it, I love it. 16 April 2014
