KB 5 *AU is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from handy bit of kit I have been using this electric broom for about 3 weeks now. I must say I am impressed with it. Although there are some cons I think this is pretty useful bit of kit in every home, office or even restaurant. Bare in mind this is not a Vaccum cleaner it is a broom and it sweeps everything on its way: dry mud, sand , wood shavings,even little objects like lego bricks or pens. I cant say anything about pet's hair because I do not own one. It is very light and cordless, charges very quickly. The only two cons I found are as follows. It is very hard to sweep anything from the corner or even from against the wall. And the other thing, you can not tilt it forward or all the rubbish you just cleaned up will spill back on the floor. Other than that I am very happy with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes sweeping easier and more fun! I have been using the KB5 for around 1 month now, and I am really happy with it! It was really easy to set up and use for the first time, I just needed to assemble the handle and plug it in to charge. Our house has lots of hard flooring, so the KB5 is really helpful with all of the sweeping that I have to do. I am so pleased with it, as it does a better job than I did before within a dustpan and brush, and because I like gadgets, it actually makes the sweeping more fun too!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent for old or disabled people In spite of the warnings in the manual 'not intended for use by persons with limited physical...capacities' I think this appliance would be ideal for some disabled people and also for young children (with supervision)and especially elderly people. It is light, simple and easy to use. But it won't replace a good conventional vacuum cleaner, but it is ideal for a quick sweep around. One drawback - it could perhaps benefit from a slightly more powerful motor.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from What a handy little appliance! I received this product from Karcher to test and am really impressed with it. My kitchen has got glossy dark brown ceramic tiles which look great but unfortunately show up every crumb. Before receiving this item, it was a bit of an ordeal getting the vacuum cleaner out but not any more - the KB5 simply stores away upright under the stairs and is ready for action in 10 seconds! A quick tilt of the handle and it is doing it's magic. I was impressed with the edge to edge cleaning and it is so light and manoeuvrable. No it is not a heavy duty cleaner but for crumbs, dust and hair, it's perfect. My kitchen and hallway floors have never looked so good. I have tried it on carpets and it's OK on short pile but does not perform that well which is why I have only given it 4 stars. However for ceramic tiles and laminate floors it is perfect. Usual Karcher quality and a full charge lasts for 4 or 5 five minute cleans. Light as a feather and can easily be picked up with one hand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light and Easy Very light in weight and if I am honest because of that I did not expect it to be that good - 'Wrong' its a great little cleaner for doing all the things you did with a dust pan and brush on a variety of surfaces and saves getting out the main cleaner for small jobs and a tidy up. Charge lasts as long as advertised, Storeage easy as it takes up little floor space with the handle securely up right ready for use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My KB5 seemed a little compact on initial opening; it was very simple to put together however i do have to admit it needed a bit of my partners man power to push together the pieces but once its all clicked in it seems very sturdy. It didn't take long to charge and like all of my other beloved Karcher products it uses the same charger which is very handy (my cleaning cupboard looks like a Karcher warehouse)! I think you would be very surprised at the size of the product however value for money i think is good, it is easy to use, very light which is great for carrying up and down the stairs. It isn't meant to be a replacement for the hoover which is good because it isnt; but for those mid week clear ups or for a quick go over before the visitors turn up it is ideal. Does not work on any thick carpets or rugs but for wooden floor, lino, tiles etc it really is a great help; i wouldnt be without mine now!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic compact product - really useful The product arrived in secure packaging and was really simple to assemble. It took less than 3 minutes from unwrapping to ready to use. On first glance the product is compact and light weight and feared that it would not be powerful or robust enough... how wrong could I be? The current cordless hoover we use is a market leader and costs several hundred pounds - this does everything the more expensive hoover does, but at a fraction of the price tag. In a household with several messy children, it coped well and has proven to be the default product to use on a daily basis. The product has a really useful and easy waste door allowing for swift emptying. The charge time of 30 minutes is always more than enough to cover the downstairs with ease., moving from wooden floors to rugs with ease. Even dinner crumbs under the dinner table are swept up with ease. I received the product for free as part of the Kärcher Club product testers campaign.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very lightweight easy to use It was very easy to set up and use. I really like how compact and lightweight it is. I found it didnt pick up everything, you have to go over spots again. It would cut out occassionally going from tiled floor to carpet. Its been fantastic using it for quick clean ups saving having to get the bulky hoover out.
