*Shark provided me with a Rotator Lift-Away vacuum in exchange for my honest review.  All opinions are my own.  The attached giveaway has been organized by Rosey the Coupon Coach sponsored by Shark.

Last September (while I was at the Type A Parent Conference) I had the chance to meet and chat with a couple of the representatives from Shark about their Shark Rotator Powered Lift-Away vacuum.  They had the Shark with them... and we had the chance to give it a whirl around their sponsor booth.  I have to admit... I said "no thanks" and actually told them that I truly hate vacuuming.  I believe I may have actually told them that I consider my vacuum my arch-nemesis.  And, I may have told them that since putting "vacuum upstairs" and "vacuum downstairs" on Ana & Zoe's chore list... I have quite successfully avoided vacuuming for quite a while.  (Seriously... since the girls want an allowance I've been able to hand a few of my chores to them.  It's brilliant!)

I guess the reps in the Shark booth didn't like hearing anyone saying they hated vacuuming (are there people that like vacuuming???) because a little while after coming home from the conference I received an e-mail asking if Shark could send me a Rotator Lift-Away vacuum to try out.  The next thing I knew a shiny new Shark was showing up at my door.  Somehow I had agreed to vacuum.

Over the last few months we've been running the Lift-Away all around our house.  Upstairs, downstairs, wood floors, carpets, area rugs, tile.  You name it... we vacuum it.  (Well... to stick with the 100% honest review... Zoe & Ana vacuum it.)  It's a pretty good test of the ease of use of something if a 6 year old can use it with little to no difficultly (other than  saying "I don't WAAAANNNNNAAAAA VACUUUUUUM!.... which.... who can blame her?).  Both girls commented on how it was quieter than our old vacuum.  It's pretty cool that you can use it as an upright or with the canister off to carry or on the little included base.  And the canister is pretty easy to lift off, open, and clean.

So.... do I LOVE vacuuming  now?  Um... no.  Duh... I hate vacuuming.  (I still don't believe anyone actually likes vacuuming.)  But... is the Shark Rotator Powered Lift-Away vacuum a good vacuum?  Yes.  It's an awesome vacuum.  It's easy to use, it comes with some awesome (but simple) attachments, it's pretty easy to clean, you don't need replacement bags, and the amount of cat hair that this things picks up is shocking.  I really thought my old vacuum did an impressive job... but man... I truly had no clue how much my cats shed until we ran the Lift-Away around the house just once.  And that's just with the "normal" vacuuming... not even the fancy-schmancy "TruePet™ Mini Motorized Brush Attachment".
