Toshiba Torneo Vacuum Cleaner Review
Wouldn't it be nice if we can just clean our whole house by snapping out fingers? Imagine this, snap your fingers and your house magically turn to be clean and organized? haha.. if only right? Anyway, today I would like to share with you about this new device that help me to maintain my house in a way more efficient than before. Wanna know why and how? Stay with me on this post.
Around Nov 2014, I was invited to join Toshiba Convention in Genting where the invite was extended by nuffnang. It was such a great and informative experience I must say. I learned about the latest smart technologies for house whole items ranging from tv to air-cond and including vacuum. Do you know that Toshiba released their first electric vacuum cleaner in Japan in 1931? That’s like 84 years of experience developing vacuum cleaner. During the Toshiba convention, that is the first time I had an eye to eye encounter with this baby. It was like a love at a first sight. haha didn't believe me?
I was actually hoping to get one personally and baaaam… 7 months after that I was approach to do a review. What a pleasant surprise huh? Just in case you want to check out the other smart products by Toshiba, you may check out my blogpost about the convention by clicking here : http://www.illyariffin.com/2014/10/toshiba-convention-launch-smart.html
So, here I am introducing Toshiba Torneo Vacuum Cleaner with Dual Tornado System! What is so great about Dual tornado system? The Dual Tornado System works by employing a two-step system- firstly, high-speed centrifuging generates high-speed spiral power that separates the heavier dust from the air, and in so doing, prevents blockage to keep suction strong and consistent. Secondly, low-speed centrifuging generates a low speed spiral power spin to compress the dust into the dust cup.
This is is the main brush also known as the revolving brush. I like the safety feature of this brush because it will automatically stop spinning when it’s been lifted off the floor. So, I don't have to worry that about my baby safety. If you have curious pet at home, this function would be very helpful too.. I assume.
On top of the safety measure, this product is also kind to your wallet in the long run. This is because there are other cyclone type vacuum cleaners in the market with input power between 1600W ~ 2400W. Higher W does not mean better suction power. It simply means and that higher input power are needed to operate the machine and in return you may face higher electric bills. High W = expensive electricity bills.
off topic, but this pic reminded me of Edward’s Scissor hand hahaha
This Toshiba Torneo vacuum designed with 1100W (Suction Power – 220W) input power which far more energy efficiency. You may just skip worrying over high electricity bills and you can just enjoy cleaning all day long. Found it to be a good way to exercise as well.
As you can see in the first pic of this post, I got to try this one in beautiful stunning red. So sexy huh? If red is not your colour , no sweat this Toshiba Torneo comes in four models VC-GC33BSA which comes in two attractive colours i.e. Pink Gold or Gran Red, and VC-GC32BSA which comes in Silky Pink and Light Blue.
Total of 4 models available :
o VC-GC33BSA (R ) gran red - 2.8KG
o VC-GC33BSA (N ) pink gold - 2.8KG
o VC-GC32BSA (L) light blue - 2.7KG
o VC-GC32BSA (P) silky pink - 2.7KG
Recommended Retail Price inclusive of GST
o VC-GC33BSA – RM 889
o VC-GC32BSA – RM 667
The fact that this vacuum is weighing 2.8kg (lighter than my laptop) it makes cleaning so much easier. If you are staying in a two storey house, I would imagine dragging a bulky n heavy vacuum cleaner up n down the house. Then, more reason to get your hand on this compact, lightweight and most importantly efficient vacuum! I like that it is so compact it also save space for storage.
Another solid point that makes Toshiba Torneo awesome is because it comes with a Futon Brush. Honestly I have tried few vacuum in my life and never come across this type of brush before. This specially-designed Futon Brush with 16 times beat by four flexible sticks per one rotation of wheel effectively removes dust mites on the bed, mattress or sofa and removes even minute particles of dust to ensure the highest levels of hygiene for your family.
I personally like to use it on my mattress, on my baby’s mattress and noticed that she didn't fall sick as often as before. You may also use this on your fabric sofa. Imagine all the dust mites and nasty stuff out from from fabric! would recommend this product to those who have a baby or elderly even if you have a pet at home this is a perfect tool for you.I don't talk nonsense okay? This product is scientifically proven to reduce exposure to the following allergens: house dust mites & pollen, As certified by The British Allergy Foundation.
It is also very easy to maintain this vacuum. Just remove the cap, dispose dust and wash it if you want. I like to wash mine with warm water just to sterilized the cup after each usage. You can see that the cup is transparent (easier to check out if it is full) and no dust bag needed (environmental friendlier). You don't have to keep on purchasing the vacuum dust bag so definitely kind to your pocket.I also did a video just in case you want to check out more about this beautifully built smart device.

Tried to use it on my house carpet as well as tile floor and it works amazing. Great thanks to its 99.9% of suction power. You may also check out the before and after picture before. I pour some baby powder and biscuit crumps to test on the suction power. Very happy with the result. That's about it. I really love my new baby the Toshiba Torneo Vacuum Cleaner and have been using it very often ever since I got it at home. I love how it is very lightweight and help me to take care of my house and my family. Even if I have to spend my own money on this machine, I would say it is worth every penny.
