KB5 is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 9.
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 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 4 out of 5 by from Compact and easy to use I received one of these from Karcher to test, when it was delivered I was surprised by how small the packaging was. I unpacked it and found it incredibly easy to put together and it was what it said, small, lightweight and flexible. I plugged it in and charged it; I would have preferred a slightly longer charging lead just to help with storage. It charged quickly and I set about using it on the tiled kitchen floor, the hard floor in the dining room, and two different pile carpets(one short, one deep) and found it worked well on all of them. I found that the guide underneath by the brush caught on the carpet if you pushed it too hard and the unit would cut out; but if you held the handle lightly and just let the motion of the brush pull it over the carpet it would work well. I was pleasantly surprised by how much it picked up from the floors which looked clean. It is a good solid product that is light weight, handy, flexible and suited to daily maintenance cleaning between hooverings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT PRODUCT A++++++++ Great product! Quick and easy to clear up any mess, quiet and very light weight. Great for anybody that finds using a traditional vacuum cleaner a physical struggle as well as those that can't be bothered! lol. No bags and no restrictions, power cables and different kind of surfaces.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Easy to assemble and use. I received last week to test and was not overly impressed with the performance. It works well on hard surfaces but will not work on short pile rugs or mats, it stops as soon as you try and you have to restart.
