Strategy

Next-level floor cleaner


When it comes to household appliances, convenience is key – and the FC 3 Cordless from Kärcher sets a new benchmark. Thanks to its rechargeable battery, the hard floor cleaner doesn’t need a cable to supply it with power and is therefore perfectly in step with the trend towards compact, cordless appliances. Besides being faster than a conventional mop, the cleaner is also more efficient and hygienic and hardly takes up any more space when not in use.

Innovation

Faster and more hygienic


The FC 3 Cordless delivers a particularly intensive cleaning performance – up to 20% better than manual mopping – and separates the fresh water from the dirt thanks to its self-cleaning function. Besides considerably reducing the amount of water used, that means the floors are only wetted rather than soaked and the dirt isn’t redistributed. Thanks to the rotating microfibre-covered rollers, the cordless cleaner moves across the floor almost by itself. And because it’s battery-operated, the appliance ensures maximum freedom of movement without being hampered by a cable.

Design

Elegance meets usability


The cleaner’s compact and slender design visualises the essence of a clever household helper and is combined with premium finishes that signal cleanliness and efficiency. In keeping with the consumer industry’s current design language, the straightforward product design blends in seamlessly with sophisticated interiors. As a result, the appliance has no reason to hide but is nevertheless easy to store thanks to its compact dimensions. Both the fresh water and dirty water tanks are simple and hygienic to remove, empty or fill. Last but not least, the product design successfully conveys all the features of the Kärcher brand and its Home Design division.
