The Gold Standard of Canister Vacuums
I don't think it's overstatement to say that owning a Miele can change your life. You will literally have a different environment at home -- less dust, less dander, fewer crumbs in your kitchen, fewer cobwebs, etc. It is a completely different animal from owning a cheap machine that becomes increasingly unpleasant and ineffective to use as it ages. It also does not kick up dust as so many other units do. This machine is a workhorse that you can rely on for years. Moreover, it is a pleasure to use to the point where I look for reasons to plug it in. Average lifespan of the motor is 20 years and warranty on the motor is 7 years. That makes it an easy choice over the common $100 disposable vacuum that essentially re-distributes dust. (That's why allergy sufferers will sneeze during and after vacuuming with a regular machine.)Read full review
Great but expensive vacuum
This is a very good vacuum but very expensive. I bought it because it was the lightest vacuum at this quality level and it doesn't kill me to vacuum the runner on my stairs now. It has a very flimsy cover over the tools that pops completely off everytime I use it. It's certainly not necessary for function but it's galling to spend that much and have such a cheap part used. I love the fact that you can turn the suction down while vacuuming small area rugs.
Great canister vacuum
Well built, light, relatively quiet (similar to central vac noise), excellent filtration system, and most importantly excellent suction power. Moves across the floor with ease and has a great on/off feature on the handle. The time it takes to vacuum our house has been greatly reduced and it is so effective that we now tend to vacuum more often because it is not such a chore. Expensive unit, but should last for many years.
Miele Vacuum is an excellent product!
My husband picked out the Miele for our home. I was in shock that he spent so much at first. After using the Miele this past month I realize he was right! Life is easier when you have a vacuum that gets the job done. It's quiet, light weight, and user friendly. It picks up the dog hair. It works great on hardwood floors, rugs, and carpet. I even used it for my car. I am truly satisfied with our investment. I recommend the Miele.
worth every penny
Miele has always been a favorite of mine. Well-designed, quiet,light and powerful. In short, a very well-made machine . Designed with quite a bit of cerebral capital invested. The machine even feels good upon contact, moving effortlessly with little pull. As they say, you'll get what you pay for . I will not buy anything else . If Miele made cars this way, I'd have been the first one on the block to get one.
