Dreame H11 Max test – could 2021 be useful for a vacuum cleaner if not smart?

There is hardly a person living on a planet called Earth who likes to vacuum, especially after that it has to be washed up afterwards. Dreame is trying to reform this. We tried.

Cleaning is a heartfelt sport hated by the masses, starting with vacuuming. While this is just the beginning, vacuuming is usually followed by mopping, which is a whole workflow, and it should be done wisely so that you don’t end up squeezing yourself into a small, dark corner of the apartment at the end. Not to mention tidying up, dusting, and other small millions of chores, these two workflows also seem to take a lot of time, but unfortunately they are necessary.

No wonder companies put artificial intelligence and robots right here. After the initial tumbling and unfortunate solutions, you can now get quite good robotic vacuum cleaners, which can even empty their own dirt bins, do not fall down the stairs, do not zigzag back and forth in the apartment aimlessly. But they still have weak points and the efficiency of the cleaning is also real if you stand there and do it yourself. Dreame is trying to partially free you from this glazed burden.

Tiny advances and a feverish search for a path

Handheld vacuum cleaner at PC World? No, we haven’t gone crazy, there are some very exciting developments here, which are really interesting and good to try once in a while. A couple of years ago, the big novelty was the rotary head, which turned out to be the case, today almost every such vacuum cleaner has a motorized brush hidden in its head. Developments in battery technologies can also be nicely tracked on vacuum cleaners, including fast-charging algorithms, energy-saving motor control, and other tricks.

Recent experiments are no less exciting. For example, a significant proportion of handheld and robotic vacuum cleaners now try to recognize the type of surface and then adjust the vacuuming performance, brush rotation speed, and so on. Also an exciting development is the laser illumination technology recently introduced by Dyson, which also allows you to see dust particles that are not visible to the naked eye, so you can do even more thorough cleaning. A Chinese manufacturer called Dreame, built and operated by engineers connected to Xiaomi’s ecosystem, did not launch the laser, but set a much loftier goal that is easy to support to the maximum: the H11 promises to

you can clean it perfectly in half as much time!

What is it, if not a very good promise to be true? Fortunately, we had the opportunity to test the H11 Max vacuum cleaner – the benefits of which were not negligible: the clean apartment.

Dreame H11 Max

The H11 Max handheld vacuum cleaner is not much different from other similar products. The engine and tank are at the bottom, so the vacuum cleaner can also stand on its own “foot”, without having to tilt it against a wall or put it back in its holder. The handle is ergonomic and not very big, but it is easy to grip, which is important for control. There are only three buttons on this: the on / off switch, the water suction and the head cleaner.

The big trick of the Dreame H11 Max is that it is not only a dry-wet vacuum cleaner, but also a straight water vacuum cleaner. Many of today’s robotic vacuum cleaners and handheld devices now have a water tank, which is advertised as a means of vacuuming. wet mop also performs where the amount of water is controlled by a small valve. This is also spectacular to some degree, but it is no substitute for mopping. Dreame H11 Max, on the other hand, cleans with water.

As soon as you turn it on, water is sprayed from the fresh water tank onto its fast-spinning, special brush, and at the same time the engine sucks dirty water into its dirty water tank. That is, in addition to vacuuming, mechanical brushing with clean water, which spins at 560 per minute, also improves cleaning efficiency. Wherever the H11 Max went, the soil will be wet, but it will dry out in about 1-2 minutes, because the clean water is not only simply sprayed on the surface, but the brush wipes it up and the vacuum cleaner sucks it up. With this, he considers fulfilling the Dreame that

you do the cleaning in half as much time as before.

Operation is a really great idea, and it’s not just paper form, we’ve experienced this in our test as well.

Test and clean apartment

We tested the H11 Max on several surfaces with normal dust, spilled, fine-grained garbage and hairs. The traditional vacuum cleaner was able to remove a lot of dust and dirt during dry cleaning, but the stuck stains and stubborn dots remained, and even the robotic vacuum cleaner, which also performs wet wiping, did not thrive (although it went through them several times). With surprisingly quiet operation (up to 76 dBA), the Dreame H11 Max was able to successfully remove all obstacles, even spilled and dried a few days ago syrup stains, which we would have only gotten rid of with traditional cleaning during mopping.

This is a great achievement, but the H11 Max isn’t perfect either. They start right there with a weight of 4.65 kg with an empty water tank. In addition, if you do not empty the larger food container, it can be a very serious individual structure. Our other problem was choosing the suction force. There is only one mode, and that is automatic. The vacuum cleaner itself recognizes the difficulty of the work and switches to a higher or lower gear based on it – although sometimes it would not hurt to override it. The water suction mode is very useful if liquid is spilled out of the apartment many times, but you can only choose dry suction by removing the water tank. Self-cleaning is also a great gift, you don’t have to wash the brush after every cleaning – he does this by placing it in his own rack – provided you don’t forget to activate it. This is a very loud process and takes 1-2 minutes. If you don’t, you’ll just leave the disconnected H11 Max on the floor, surely leaving a small puddle underneath that looks pretty ugly in the middle of a clean apartment.

Not particularly a problem, but you need to get used to the rotating brush carrying the entire vacuum cleaner forward, meaning you need to hold back a bit so you don’t miss a single stain. And here comes the next bump in the calculation: the manufacturer guarantees 36 minutes of operation, which he says is enough for 200 nm. However, if you want to do a really thorough cleaning, you have to drag the H11 Max over the same surface several times, so the real area to be cleaned can be made around 80-100 nm with 1 charge. Of course, this is still a great result, especially since the moss is already included.

We had no problem with the suction power during the test, the Dreame H11 Max is efficient and cleans well, but the charging time is a bit long and he doesn’t like the corners very much – he couldn’t take the dirt out of the bumps in all cases. It is also a good idea to wash the dirt tank after cleaning. Accessories and replacement components (such as filter, cylinder, etc.) are all very useful, but if they run out, you can easily reorder them. Currently, you can get it for around HUF 100,000 (we do not recommend the weaker H11 due to its more modest values), which is a competitive and friendly price, and even if not all of the manufacturer’s promises are true, you are sure to have a useful partner in it even without MI. to go a little less time away with cleaning.
