Riccar vacuum cleaners generally receive good reviews online, as of November 2015. For instance, Good Housekeeping's website awards four out of five stars to the Riccar SupraLite, model RSL5. It got a perfect score for cleaning pet hair and ground-in dirt out of carpets.
The bag of the Riccar SupraLite is easy to replace. However, the Good Housekeeping review also says the machine is noisy and pricey.
Mrs. Clean's website praises Riccar vacuums. However, the review says that the most expensive model is not best. Smaller models, like the RSL3 and RSL4, are the best quality. These vacuums are light enough for seniors and children to handle. Users are also able to carry these models up the stairs easily.
