The Dirt Devil - DD698-1 Cavalier is a well-equipped machine with good functions and easy handling due to the low weight and the 3 in 1 nozzle, but there are still some details missing in the implementation that make it a good vacuum cleaner.

The shape of the foot makes it difficult not only to push the particles back and forth but also to suck them up. The battery performance is also insufficient, especially if you compare it to the charging time.


  • Combination nozzle
  • Simple clicking of the attachments
  • Turbo mode
  • Very light


  • Short battery life compared to charging time

The Dirt Devil vacuum cleaner is well equipped and easy to use.

DD698-1 Cavalier video review


The rod vacuum cleaner DD698-1 Cavalier by Dirt Devil comes in a simple but functionally illustrated package and is ready to use as soon as it is removed from the box. The instruction manual describes how to use the device, in 24 languages.


The device is mainly black and decorated with red and metallic red details.


The vacuum cleaner can be easily assembled. The 3 in 1 combination nozzle contains an upholstery nozzle, a furniture nozzle, and a corner nozzle and can be attached both directly to the appliance and to the rod.

The dirt container can be easily removed and cleaned by hand. It is also possible to open the container from below so that the dirt can fall directly into the waste bin. The brush on the vacuum cleaner foot can also be easily removed using a sliding lever and then cleaned of dirt.

To empty the dirt container you can completely remove the container or only open the bottom and the dirt falls out

With 2.1 kilograms, the device is quite light and can, therefore, be lifted easily over and past obstacles.

At 75 dB, the volume is slightly louder than a normal conversation volume.

With the wall mount, the vacuum cleaner has a fixed place and can charge there at the same time. This means that the vacuum cleaner is always ready for use when you want to use it. At this, the attachments can be hooked in, which thus also have a fixed place.

The switch-on lever can be fixed and you don't have to hold it permanently while vacuuming. There is also a turbo mode, but this is not noticeable, neither in the volume nor in the result.

Cleaning result

The cleaning result is sufficiently good and above all smooth floors are cleaned in no time by the vacuum cleaner. However, the vacuum cleaner pulls the particles with it and you have to lift the vacuum cleaner slightly so that the particles can be sucked in. On carpets, you need some transitions, but the result is satisfactory. At the edges, the vacuum cleaner has slight problems getting rid of all the particles.

In comparison, you can see that the vacuum cleaner leaves some particles on the edges, but the surfaces are cleaned after several transitions

A full battery lasts about 25 minutes, which is difficult enough for the careful use of several rooms. For a charging time of 5 hours, this is a short battery life.

We have evaluated almost 250 reviews on the Internet. In summary, it can be said that about 55 percent of buyers are satisfied (4 stars) or even very satisfied (5 stars). Partially (2 stars) or completely dissatisfied are a good 40 percent of the users. The average score at the time of the evaluation was 3.3 out of 5 stars.
