    Does Not Include Attachment with Beater Bar

    Overall this is a good a vacuum. Lightweight, very portable, and has a good selection of attachments. However, I was pretty annoyed to find that it does not have an attachment with a beater bar. So I will now need to spend an additional $135+ to buy that attachment, otherwise this will be mostly useless for us because I bought it for an upstairs that is carpeted. The attachment that comes with it is not suitable at all for anything carpeted or with even a low pile, and def not for pet hair. Disappointing to say the least. Am glad the canister is lightweight, so hopefully the additional attachment will help.

    Much better than an upright, sucked up pet hair on carpet

    Before and after use photos.So, to be honest the carpet has not been properly vacuumed in years because the upright kept getting clogged and when I did try to vacuum with it, it left pretty much everything behind. So this got a pretty brutal first test run.The suction is great. It picked up pet hair, ashes from near the fire place, little bits of wood(like shavings and splinters that fall off the firewood) and sand and little rocks.Medium reach: The hose adds some reach even with the short chord but I’m used to going much father before needing to find a new outlet. On the plus side of reach the long hose plus wand makes it easy to clean up the cobwebs at the ceiling corners. Something I’ve struggled with since they stick to the popcorn ceiling.Though not powered the head worked fine. I just set the switch to the setting where the brushes stick out the farthest(so hard floor setting) and go forward first, this brushes up the cat hair, then drawing it backwards sucks it right up. It seems to suction this up best on the backwards stroke.Ignoring the fact my old upright wasn’t working well, I find the bagged canister a much better experience. It’s mush easier to move around and very light. The main head even sucks most things from the corners along the wall, where the upright couldn’t get anything that way, and only by hose action. With this I only use the hose a bit after to be sure and get missed spots. And the clog that was happening in the upright, wouldn’t happen here, as it was in the bendy bit near the bottom where it T’s into the hose, a feature of upright canisters.A bonus is I can actually use this in the kitchen on the hard floor because the long hose with head to maneuver around the table and chairs, something the upright couldn’t do.It even got the cat hair off the curtain, once I figured out which attachment was best.

    🏆Worth every penny🏆

    We have several hairy pets and three young kids with special needs, so the messes are REAL. This vacuum has the strongest suction of any I’ve ever used! So impressed with how easily it cleaned our floors, and how easy it was to change the bag. Bonus: no dust flying everywhere when we empty it!Yes, yes, and yes 🙌🏼 Highly recommend!

    Great Vacuum — With Caveats

    This is the base model Miele. At the $300–$350 price point, this is a great vacuum.Be warned, it’s not ideal for carpets (which I was aware of prior to purchasing). That being said, I live in a small apartment with carpet, and the “carpet” (rug)/floor attachment works well for me.Pros:Fantastic suction power that you can adjustPhenomenal for details (baseboards, dusting)Super lightweightExtremely CompactCons:For a high-end vacuum, the attachments feel way cheaper than I expectedIf you have a lot of thick carpet, this won’t be ideal

    excellent suction, easy to use, extremely satisfied with the product

    This is an amazing vacuum for the price. The power behind the suction is amazing. You will not be disappointed. I recently purchased an additional tool for the carpet. Yes, it was a bit pricey but in my opinion worth the money. I have been replacing my vacuum every couple of years and if this vacuum last three years and then I will be ahead of the game. Give this vacuum a try it is worth your time!

    GREAT vacuum

    Vacuum is so easy to maneuver, reaches into all the corners and under the furniture and into tight spaces, has great suction, and stores easily!

    Works

    Better than expected, very loud but does a great job of getting everything. Only downside is that it is still pretty bulky, but it is as expected with a powerful machine.

    Well made machine that gets the job done.

    Living with a German Shedder, so decided to invest in a good vacuum cleaner. This Miele turned out to be an excellent choice. The best part for me was that I bought this vacuum cleaner, which is made for US (110v) and brought it to overseas (220v) when I moved. Totally forgot about the voltage difference and mistakenly plugged 110v machine into 220v. It ran for a few minutes and then stopped. I was so sure that I had burned it. A week later I tried to run it again, this time with a voltage transformer, and it did run like a champ. It still does.The manufacturer suggests that the bag should last 3 months, but mine gets full within a week of use. I don’t live in a huge house nor have wall to wall carpets. Must be the German Shedder.Overall, well made machine that gets the job done. Highly recommended.

    Wow, straight suction isn’t in the same category as gutless no-bag vacs

    Our bagless vacuum that we’ve had for several is progressing getting more and more gutless. It just doesn’t pick up even small lightweight bits. I grew up with bag vacuums and after some research found this Classic C1 Miele. We have a lot of hardwood floors in this new house and one of the reasons I decided to go with this model is because of those floors. The other was the “pure suction” description. I didn’t care for the floorhead it came with. There is a vinyl strip that seems to have contact with the wood floors while vacking.This same head was horrible for our cotton area rug. EVen on the lowest suction and the tile floor setting, it roughed up the cotton and I ended up with a lot of lint. I ordered the Miele SBB 300-3 Twister Parquet Floorhead, spendy, but reviews sounded good, and it was worth it. And I just ordered the (shhh… a non-brand model) Turbo Head cleaner for that cotton rug and the rooms that have standard carpeting. The Parquet sweeps our hardwood and tile floors beautifully and I recommend it. They are cleaner than they’ve ever been with our old vacuum. The Turbo Head tool arrives tomorrow. It has rave reviews here on Amazon and I anticipate that it will work well.The vacuum itself costs more than any vacuum I have ever owned, and when you add the two additional floorheads it has been an expensive item. But, it is working extremely well (I don’t even need the higher suction levels for most of what I do), it is lightweight and easy to move about the house (I’m retired, glad for that ease of movement) and seems quite well made, with high quality plastic than the previous (brand name not disclosed) vac I bought at a chain store. The various tools snap on and off easily. Overall I’ve spent about $425, but am satisfied with the product I now own, which matches our needs, and anticipate it lasting for years.

    After 3 Years, Going Strong!

    I like to submit reviews after I’ve used a product for a while — we live in world where so many things are built to break, and when you’re paying this much for a vacuum, you want to know it will stand the test of time. First, this is the stripped-down version, but the sucking power is tremendous — enough that it easily takes care of our hardwood floors, but also works for our heavy rugs, even a large “shag” rug. Lesser vacuums will use spinning rollers to move carpet fibers around, but I’m pretty sure that equal or superior cleaning can be accomplished just with the massive suction power of this vacuum.We love that it’s also light and quiet. The simple attachments are well thought-out — you can easily shorten or lengthen the working end, and the brush attachment is GREAT for cleaning window screens. After three years, the cord is still retracting like the day we bought it, and the suction is just as strong.Note that this is an investment, and to keep it healthy you probably want to go with miele brand bags made especially for this vacuum. They’re pricey, and if you’re plastic conscious, they have a plastic attachment on each bag. But the way they filter the air (along with the other filters in the vacuum) means that super-clean air emerges from the top of the vacuum. That’s another plus, by the way — the external air vent is on top of the vacuum. We’ve had other vacuums where it vents out the back, often blowing dust and dirt around. But straight up means that that doesn’t happen.I’m trying to think of some cons, but after trying so many other lesser vacuums in the past and having so many break (cord not retracting, power button malfunctioning, etc.), we’re just so happy with our “princess miele”.A final note is that the three years of service from this vacuum haven’t been gentle years — we’ve gone through two moves, and loaned it repeatedly to a neighbor who didn’t have a vacuum. It’s been used pretty hard.As for me, I’d rather spend more on a product that not only works great, but stands the test of time. Ends up being cheaper on the wallet and easier on the landfills to not have to buy vacuums repeatedly (which is what we did before this — once we bought two in one year!)If you’re looking for an easy-to-use vacuum that kicks butt and keeps going strong, this is your baby.

    So far so good. Fantastic for hard floors. High suction and very light weight.

    I was going back and forth trying to decide if I should buy a canister vac with a power head for carpets and concluded the increase in price just couldn’t be justified when compared to standard uprights for carpeting. However, uprights for hard floors just don’t work in my opinion even if they claim they are multi-purpose. while canisters just aren’t as good for carpeting in my opinion and are harder to maneuver around on carpeting. So I use the upright on the carpets and this lowest-cost pure suction Miele for the hard floors. Together they are a perfect combo and I can vacuume the entire downstairs that is about 1,000 sf in about 15 minutes. THe standard head it comes with works just fine, glides easily and I don’t see a need to spend more $ on a wider parquet twister or whatever they call it. I will say this is NOT a good vac for carpet (even very short pile carpet) though the head has a carpet setting. It will not easily glide across low pile carpet unless you turn the suction way down and at that point, what is the point?

    Fantastic! Is it possible to love a vacuum?

    We first bought this vacuum cleaner in the UK. We had our 3rd (at least) vacuum cleaner die on us in 5 years. Our cleaner had tried over 20 different vacuum cleaners and recommended this one without hesitation. It was 3-5x as expensive as the other vacuums. However, it was worth the money. We were so amazed.(1) Suction power: It has very strong suction that can be adjusted by turning the dial based on the surface being cleaned. It is so good that it takes only a fraction of the time to vacuum a room because it picks up the dirt on the first pass! The floor attachment has a button on it to switch between carpet (rug icon) and hardwood floor (supposed to look like parquet floor icon). This is important otherwise it is hard to move on the wrong surface.(2) Quiet mode: It has a quiet mode where it is much quieter than normal vacuums and it still sucks!(3) Incredibly lightweight: This model is meant for house with stairs. It is so lightweight to carry.(4) Attachments are attached!: The floor cleaner can be attached easily to a groove on the belly and there is a little half disc that fits onto the front size of the vacuum that holds the attachments. This makes it possible to carry everything by just holding the built in handle. Again great for going up and down stairs. The little attachments are also great. The one with the narrow slit cleans hard to reach places and also base boards very well.(5) Swivel: The floor cleaner swivels effortlessly to go under and around furniture, especially on wood floors. The motion is so smooth and ergonomic it makes vacuuming a breeze. I didn’t know it was possible to have a vacuum cleaner that makes me want to vacuum! Even hard to clean bits are a breeze (likely vacuuming up after the nth home haircut for a our toddler!).(6) HEPA filter: With some vacuums I feel like you suck the dust in one end and expel it out the other. The air that comes out of the vacuum is heavily filtered and is actually quiet clean. This is a big relief for us.The vacuum we bought in the UK last year was 240V/50A only so we couldn’t take it with us when we moved to the USA. However, I’ve bought the same one here with 120V/60A and it works just as well. I used it to clean up after the contractors after they removed some old carpet. It was amazingly easy and fast even for this dirty job. I hoped I hadn’t ruined it on the first run. However, we cleaned the whole house today and it worked like a charm.The only downside is that it uses vacuum bags (not cylinder) so one needs to buy the bags and dispose of them. We bought an 8 pack of bags (also comes with 2 replacement filters) in the UK but only used 1 or 2 in a year despite vacuuming at least once a week (and sometimes more because of the kids). I bought the 4 pack when we arrived here (also comes with 1 replacement filter). The machine tells you when the bag is full. It’s helpful to read the instructions in order to interpret it. Otherwise when you use the tiny attachments you might think it is full when it is not.Happy vacuuming!

    No Rollers; I Find this Difficult to Use on Carpet

    This is a really nice vacuum for the price. I was interested in trying a canister vacuum and had heard Miele makes great vacuums. This is relatively quiet, nicely designed, and it has great suction power on my tile floors (it just sucks up any debris, and doesn’t scatter everything around.) It’s also attractive and not too heavy or too light.It’s my fault for not doing more research, but I had assumed this would be a standard vacuum and have rollers/brushes. It does not. The attachments are nice, and there are controls to change from hard floors to carpeting, but I find this vacuum almost impossible to maneuver on our carpets (which are standard pile). Plus, I don’t get those satisfying vacuum lines! I do really like it for the majority of our floors, which are tile, but the few rooms we have with installed carpeting or area rugs are almost impossible to vacuum nicely.We hadn’t really been liking our Dyson, but I’ll have to continue to use that for the carpets. It doesn’t seem like it does a good job on carpets, even our extremely low-pile area rugs.

    Best functioning and designed vacuum cleaner I’ve ever used.

    This vacuum is a perfect fit for my large home and active family. I wish I had bought it many many years ago instead of keeping going back to Sears. It’s not till you have something that is bad until you realize how good it really can be.It’s got plenty of suction which can be easily controlled via a knob on the unit or through a sliding latch on the tube. So, given that it has plenty of basic functionality, let me tell you where it excel and/or is impressive.The head that sits on the floor and is adjustable for either carpet or wood, pivots beautifully to get into difficult areas and follow the contours of the floor. The head is perfect for the job. My Sears had a motor powered beater which is totally unnecessary, added height making it less maneuverable. And, having a motor, is another thing to break. The simplicity of the Miele is perfect for it’s function here as the powerful strength of the vacuum means a beater isn’t necessary.The unit turns on and off from a switch on the vacuum itself (next to the cord retract). It’s easily operated by a touch of the foot. The Sears had a on/off switch on the tube, and while ‘nice’ it wasn’t worth the extra complexity because that switch broke over time as well. Having the switch on the vacuum means it doesn’t have to snake the power up to the tube. Again, simplicity and less weight to lug around.The exhaust blows straight up and not back (i.e. the venting air does not parallel the floor). On the Sears, the exhaust would blow along the floor kicking up dust and debris that I was trying to vacuum. The Meile vents straight up and doesn’t blow debris all around.The tools such as duster, sofa tool, etc. fit snuggly on the unit and they stay put. They aren’t hidden behind doors or form fit stuck in some fashion. As the Miele tools are easy to get to, they are used more often.If I had any complaints, which I don’t, I’d say that they could have design the floor piece to suck up debris without the occasional slight raise of the head so large pieces could be vacuumed (popcorn kernel sized). And, the cord could be a wee bit longer. Other than that the engineering, usability and reliability of this unit is impressive.

    Great vacuum cleaner, horrible service from Amazon

    This is a great vacuum cleaner. The suction is great on both low and high pile. Maneuvering it it’s very easy as it is light and easy to move around. The cord is a good length and it’s easy to roll back in after use.The item arrived quickly as well, however Amazon really dropped the ball when it came to the payment. They did play fast and loose with my credit card and they charged my UK card instead of the US one. I ended up incurring extra fees from both Amazon and my UK bank on top of a bad currency rate. When I contacted customer support they actually lied to me telling me the US card was declined, however there is no whatsoever record with my credit card for this transaction even been attempted. I always get a text message with declined transactions and did not get anything so did not have the opportunity to change the payment method. I have since cancelled my Prime membership as I cannot trust a company that lies about such important things like credit card charges. It’s a shame that great companies and products like Miele have to be associated to such deceitful customer service as the one provided by Amazon

    Great multi use vacuum

    Have used this exact model before for AirBnB regular cleaning use, as well as my own house — before buying a second one. The size and weight of this vacuum are small enough to pick up and carry wherever you need to take it. It maneuvers in tight corners & around furniture legs & under most things, as well as over a variety of surfaces. The suction cannot be beat. Works great on hardwood floors, tile, carpet, rugs, and works pretty decently on upholstery and bedspreads also (I have a dog that sheds.) Even used it once or twice on my car upholstery. The hose is easy to remove & reattach. In all, a very user-friendly vacuum & interface.Used a friend’s model for years (which held up extremely well) before finding a sweet bargain on what ended up being the exact same model. Seriously couldn’t beat the price I paid on this vacuum (less than $300) for the QUALITY. Before, I thought I was a Dyson fan but I like the design on the Miele better …except for one thing: I find the way the attachments are just clustered on a semicircle ring on the base of the hose annoying.If I had lots of stairs or smaller space (smaller apartments) to clean I might go with a different/smaller model of vacuum.Also, after an AirBnB employee damaged the plastic piece that clips the hose/head to the body of the vacuum, I found the vacuum more annoying to store. But I was able to partly repair the plastic grooves so that it clips on again & stays put when stored upright – at least 50% of the time. If you are careful with the vacuum when transporting it, however, you will never have this issue. Multiple employees have used this vacuum and most managed not to damage or break it.The bags last a fairly long time before full — and you can find off brand bags for cheap on this site, that work just as well as the name brand vacuum bags. I do not mind that it uses bags instead of being “bag less” bc the bag system is less messy than having to empty a slide-out compartment full of dust & allergens, in my opinion.It has a quiet running mode which I recommend if you are trying to listen to the music or radio while you vacuum, but I just run full blast bc I want as much suction as possible.

    Does not work for carpet

    I will answer the question that most of you have – if you have many area rugs, mats and carpet (low pile to manageable medium pile), which model should you buy? If money is no object, get the powered version that uses the powered hose. The C1 does NOT include any power hose even if it may look like it does – it is suction only. I wouldn’t consider using it for shag carpet and can see it as a beast to manage.I have many area rugs and low pile carpet. The basic C1 Pure is the exact same engine as every other Miele C1 – the ONLY difference are the attachments. Here is where it gets challenging and I will tell you my experience.The C1 Pure attachment includes the SBD 365-3 Combination Floorhead. It’s OK and will be the one tool to have the worst ‘stick’ effect to your rugs and carpets. I had to turn my vacuum down to the lower or lowest suction to have some semblance of “smooth” rolling over my carpets and rugs. I hated that it has a plastic bottom and wondered how abrasive this effect was, since pushing forward is the only easy way and there is friction, albeit manageable at that low level. I’d only buy this for mostly wood or tile floor, but even then I’m not so thrilled with the attachment. Now this model can be purchased for MUCH less than the Turbo model at times, and some buy replacement aftermarket tools like the Splinova Miele Turbo Head Cleaner, Hand Attachment and Floor Tool Accessory. I have not used it and some swear it’s near as good as the original. You’ll save about $65 off of buying the Turbo edition. But it’s not all that clear.The attachment you want is the STB 305-3 TurboTeQ Floorhead. It is the only one that is non-powered that makes vacuuming on rugs and low pile carpet manageable. You can raise the vacuum level higher and push forward. Backward will created a stacked, brushed out look and friction, likely because the wheel is spinning forward and you’re overpowering it moving it backward. So you’ll need to only go forward to be truly effective, picking it up and pulling back to go forward again if you want to stay in a similar spot. As to the brush attachment, it is better than the Combination Floorhead which is pretty good for what it is and certainly convenient. I’ve seen some say the bristles wear out more quickly and wondered whether I’d be better off with a cheaper imitation of this tool if I really felt it necessary.So – even though I got a GREAT deal on the C1 Pure and then saw the price was raised, I wasn’t sure this was the way to go. Problem is Miele’s seriously overpriced accessories required 2 accessories to replace the Pure, which was OK but I wondered about durability and the issue I mentioned. You don’t need to go that route because the Floorhead is a pretty good tool. But if you want to replace that brush, you need to buy two supposedly ‘quality’ accessories your savings from the Pure model. So the $95 savings of the Pure of the Turbo drop from $65 to near $35-40 – which still seems better but not really as much. So I opted for the C1 Turbo when it was on sale – but the Pure can certainly be an option + aftermarket tool. Just be aware of this and you can be pretty darn happy to save on overpriced Miele accessories if you wish to go that route.HEPA Filters: It’s incredibly ludicrous and a very bad choice for Miele not to include a Hepa filter and that you have to buy them aftermarket, at least those are the affordable ones. If you’re paying a premium for the product, this seems ludicrous and a nice use by competitors in the market should they step up their game. I still wouldn’t avoid purchasing due to this, just buy a HEPA filter if you need it. You can use the original until it goes.I think ALL of Miele’s products are overpriced at a premium. They are better than their competitors at present. Their accessory prices are ludicrously overpriced. An extension tube aka crevice tool is $34 for a piece of flexible plastic. For some reason aftermarket have done mediocre jobs and some say they are worthwhile. When deciding which model to purchase, very seriously consider the accessories. To me, the Blue Turbo C1 was the right model on sale and, from there, I would ONLY consider a powered model with the powered power nozzle as an option. But that was way out of my price range and need.Short Cord: Yes – it’s unfortunately only 20 feet. Nobody in the US cares how small apartment rooms are in Germany when they are vacuuming their 20 foot rooms and stretching to the ends and going no further. Accept it. They don’t have to change anything until a competitor comes ot the market.Bags: They are small. Very small. However, I found I could do a 1100 SF apartment and not fill a bag, maybe take me a couple of times to fill it. After using other devices with larger bags, it came down to not wanting to ruin my rugs and carpets and this was the compromise. Hope this helps.

    I never thought I’d enjoy vacuuming this much!

    Let me preface by saying that I was TORN when deciding whether to invest in a Miele bagged, corded vacuum or a cordless vacuum like a Shark or Dyson. I did tons of research and thought that while cordless vacuums lack the power of a Miele vacuum, it might be easier to use a cordless so I’d end up using it more. Well, I am SO happy that I went with the Miele since using the Miele is a JOY and I’m vacuuming more than ever!!! My floors are so clean, this vacuum picks up EVERYTHING (even on the lowest suction level!) and the air coming out of the top of the vacuum is filtered so goodbye to dust swirling all throughout the air. I have allergies to dust, animal hair, and various pollens and I swear this Miele vacuum has reduced my symptoms immensely. It is light and easy to maneuver, and the cord is nice and long too so I only have to change outlets once to vacuum my entire one bedroom apartment. Bagged vacuums are also the way to go since you don’t have to worry about the mess of dumping out the dust into your garbage and thus reintroducing dust and allergens everywhere. SUPER happy with the quality of Miele and I know this vacuum will be in my life for years to come (my parents have had their Miele for 10+ years and it works like new!).

I had to turn my vacuum down to the lower or lowest suction to have some semblance of “smooth” rolling over my carpets and rugs. I hated that it has a plastic bottom and wondered how abrasive this effect was, since pushing forward is the only easy way and there is friction, albeit manageable at that low level. I’d only buy this for mostly wood or tile floor, but even then I’m not so thrilled with the attachment. Now this model can be purchased for MUCH less than the Turbo model at times, and some buy replacement aftermarket tools like the Splinova Miele Turbo Head Cleaner, Hand Attachment and Floor Tool Accessory. I have not used it and some swear it’s near as good as the original. You’ll save about $65 off of buying the Turbo edition. But it’s not all that clear.The attachment you want is the STB 305-3 TurboTeQ Floorhead. It is the only one that is non-powered that makes vacuuming on rugs and low pile carpet manageable. You can raise the vacuum level higher and push forward. Backward will created a stacked, brushed out look and friction, likely because the wheel is spinning forward and you’re overpowering it moving it backward. So you’ll need to only go forward to be truly effective, picking it up and pulling back to go forward again if you want to stay in a similar spot. As to the brush attachment, it is better than the Combination Floorhead which is pretty good for what it is and certainly convenient. I’ve seen some say the bristles wear out more quickly and wondered whether I’d be better off with a cheaper imitation of this tool if I really felt it necessary.So – even though I got a GREAT deal on the C1 Pure and then saw the price was raised, I wasn’t sure this was the way to go. Problem is Miele’s seriously overpriced accessories required 2 accessories to replace the Pure, which was OK but I wondered about durability and the issue I mentioned. You don’t need to go that route because the Floorhead is a pretty good tool. But if you want to replace that brush, you need to buy two supposedly ‘quality’ accessories your savings from the Pure model. So the $95 savings of the Pure of the Turbo drop from $65 to near $35-40 – which still seems better but not really as much. So I opted for the C1 Turbo when it was on sale – but the Pure can certainly be an option + aftermarket tool. Just be aware of this and you can be pretty darn happy to save on overpriced Miele accessories if you wish to go that route.HEPA Filters: It’s incredibly ludicrous and a very bad choice for Miele not to include a Hepa filter and that you have to buy them aftermarket, at least those are the affordable ones. If you’re paying a premium for the product, this seems ludicrous and a nice use by competitors in the market should they step up their game. I still wouldn’t avoid purchasing due to this, just buy a HEPA filter if you need it. You can use the original until it goes.I think ALL of Miele’s products are overpriced at a premium. They are better than their competitors at present. Their accessory prices are ludicrously overpriced. An extension tube aka crevice tool is $34 for a piece of flexible plastic. For some reason aftermarket have done mediocre jobs and some say they are worthwhile. When deciding which model to purchase, very seriously consider the accessories. To me, the Blue Turbo C1 was the right model on sale and, from there, I would ONLY consider a powered model with the powered power nozzle as an option. But that was way out of my price range and need.Short Cord: Yes – it’s unfortunately only 20 feet. Nobody in the US cares how small apartment rooms are in Germany when they are vacuuming their 20 foot rooms and stretching to the ends and going no further. Accept it. They don’t have to change anything until a competitor comes ot the market.Bags: They are small. Very small. However, I found I could do a 1100 SF apartment and not fill a bag, maybe take me a couple of times to fill it. After using other devices with larger bags, it came down to not wanting to ruin my rugs and carpets and this was the compromise. Hope this helps.

    Great!

    The vacuum worked so much better than even the one I bought 25 years ago and it was a top of the line. Our daughter borrowed it two years ago and she’s very attached to it so we decided just to buy a new one . It’s also much lighter which is great for carrying it around. We bought it mainly to do things that are up high like the curtains and tops of dressers Etc. You can adjust the suction to high or low and high is really strong and low is perfect for doing curtains, lamp shades,or anything delicate. We’re going to buy the other attachment that does carpets because it just works so well. It may do some low tight carpet but anything else you need a beater bar. love it. The price is worth it because even the lowest model of Miele is better than any other’s higher models.

    Loved so much I bought another one

    I can’t believe I wasted so many years not spending the money and am so glad I finally did. The suction on my concrete floors is like no other! Dang, it’s something. And the brush to clean dust in tiny nooks in cabinets and furniture is like no other. If you just built a new house or have construction dust, this is a MUST for all anti-dusters out there. Enjoy!

    Excellent!

    This was my first vacuum that was over $200, and wow do I see a difference! First off its not noisy as heck – the sound is not imposing in any way. Second, it is pretty powerful! It was easy to run/maneuver on my wood floors and picked up everything. Third, it doesnt look like a Transformer and doesnt take up much space. I am very happy with this purchase and actually enjoy vacuuming now!

    I Love this vacuum

    This vacuum is so much quieter than other vacuums that I’ve used. It has great suction power, and is easy to use on tile floors. I’ve tried using it on carpeting, but either I don’t have the proper attachment, or it’s just too hard to maneuver. That said, I would buy this again if I needed another vacuum.

    If you need great suction, this basic model is the best

    I’m writing this review to help people who are trying to decide which model to purchase. It was hard to distinguish which models had which features, and which of those would matter to me. So, this is a rundown of the good and bad of this model.First, and most importantly to me, this vacuum has the best suction of any I’ve ever used. We purchased it for a vacation home, and we only have a few rugs and those are very low pile. The suction is so strong I have to dial it back to a low power setting because it becomes almost impossible to move when the suction is strong. It does an excellent job of getting rid of anything on your floor, or furniture, window sills or wherever you use it.This model does not have any of the bells and whistles, and we made a conscious determination that those things did not warrant the much higher price of the more tricked out models – especially since this would only be for a vacation home. I stick by that decision, but if this was for our primary residence, here are the things that would be an issue.The most annoying thing is the short cord. The description clearly notes the cord is shorter, but I didn’t think a couple feet would matter much. It does. I have to plug it in at least three places to vacuum our great room, and separately for each bedroom. Did they really save enough per unit by shortening the cord to make up for consumer annoyance? A small thing, but it causes me to grumble every time, and sometimes some areas just don’t get vacuumed because I don’t want to plug it in again.Other reviewers noted the small size of the accessories, and this is true. But they work just fine. There is no onboard storage for them, and the little holder for them that is supposed to attach to the hose connector is comical. You need to store them in a closet or somewhere for easy access. They will not stay hooked on the unit more than 30 seconds.None of the controls are on the handle – they are all on the unit itself – the off/on switch, power controls, and cord rewind. This doesn’t bother me, but having the power control on the handle would have been useful when moving from hardwood to rugs.There is no beater brush on this model. The flat head does a fine job on the hardwoods and rugs, and gets up most of the dog hair. However, a lot of that gets trapped in the stiff bristles on the front of the head, and I have to manually remove them from time to time. This is fine, and I didn’t want a beater brush. If you have higher pile rugs though, this could be an issue and you will probably want a different model.The unit is not particularly heavy and maneuvers reasonably well.I don’t feel like June Cleaver, vacuuming in high heels and lipstick when I use this. It is actually kind of a workout. But I do feel that my floors are really clean and that is the main thing, especially with a large furry dog in residence.The verdict after using it for over a month is that I’m glad we chose this model because I don’t think the increased price on the other models would be worth it for what we need here. I would not buy this model for our primary residence or if we had high pile rugs.

    Not for carpet or throw rugs

    This is an excellent vacuum for hardwood floors and tile. I especially like that it’s very quiet. However, it is NOT for carpeting! Unless you have mega muscles and don’t mind a lot of pulling on your rugs, don’t get this product. I am actually going to have to buy an upright now, which makes me nuts after spending all this money on a Miele.

    Great vacuum for me

    I have been looking for a lightweight, easy to maneuver vacuum for last several years. With degenerative disk disease and arthritic hips, the very idea of vacuuming made me cringe; I would put it off as long as possible due to the pain of using my top-heavy Shark Flex. Also never really got on board with bagless systems. I’ve been reading recommendations and reviews for a vacuum with good cleaning power and ease of use. The Miele Classic C1 Pure seemed to offer what I needed, without the necessity of refinancing my home to purchase!! The Miele was easy to assemble – like 10 minutes, max. I just tried it in the livingroom and kitchen and am beyond impressed. It’s quiet both the floor head and canister move along my hardwood floors like a dream. I like the various suction options, the way the floor head swivels to access all the areas and even the retractable cord. The actual canister is relatively small and easy to put into a closet. I just got this yesterday, so can’t know the reliability over time, but Miele seems to be a quality appliance. I think I may actually “enjoy” vacuuming with this great product. I would recommend the Miele Classic C1 Pure Power. Wish I’d discovered it sooner.

    First impressions – will update in a month

    Just opened, and thought, wow, pretty cheaply made compared to anything bought 10 years ago. But you get used to it, right? Despite poor instructions, wife figured out how to put together the hose in less than 5 minutes.Thought this would scratch our hardwood floors, but surprisingly it seems pretty safe on them. With an easy press of the foot on the cleaning part, there’s an option for carpet and hard wood, convenient.Extremely easy to move around. Previous clunky Kenmore may have 10 more feet of cord, but you knew when you had to drag it. This almost seems not attached to the hose, it’s that light. Love that.It’s powerful. I only have to do a low pile carpet one pass each drag or push (seems easier on carpet to drag backward vs. forward, but on some small 3×5 area carpets i could push it with my foot standing on front end of carpet to keep from moving. It will pick the carpet right up on high suction, no problem, so helps to stand on it.Does get under bed easily, rotates well. May not keep pointing the head straight ahead, but didn’t seem to matter much.Wife is still going at it after I did a couple rooms. So it must be pretty easy to get around. 🙂 We’re not quite 50.Stairs were easy so she says.Cons:One thing I noticed is the typical floor brush is lower and gets under your baseboard heating ducks, this will not. Must swap out for another attachment I guess.Wish it had on/off switch by my hand. Vs. using the foot on the unit. But not a big deal. It’s so easy to move around it will be by your side most the time.Cord isn’t as long as our older model. But gets from one end of house to the door of the kitchen if you’re living in a 50 ft split level home you know what mean, just can’t do the livingroom too without unplugging and plugging back in somewhere.Just your basic no frills vacuum if you’re into that kinda thing. No light, no beater brush (some say that helps move it around?) I say it probably just makes it heavier. I don’t miss it.Like I said, first hour with the machine. More to come if I remember to update. Hope the cheapness feel of it holds up. :)Update after husband review above: Wife comments now: Okay I love this machine. First time using. I didn’t’ like the fact that the cord was short compared to my very old Kenmore. Solution solved — I actually had two long extension cords and plugged both in together. I was able to go all the way downstairs from the kitchen (split level home) and complete the family room no problem. I do like the parts it came with, that is no issue. Step on/ step off for the power…gentle tap with foot, its good to go. Step on with foot to choose hardwood or for carpet, convenient. Hopefully this machine will last long. Good for under the bed too and long enough piece. You won’t be disappointed, unless it breaks in a month….

    I LOVE this vacuum

    This just arrived yesterday, and I’ve been vacuuming ever since. The floors, the couch, the curtains, the top of the cabinets, the AC vents, the dogs. I don’t think my apartment has ever been cleaner. I specifically love:The suction: I live in a loft apartment in an old renovated mill, and there are huge cracks between the floorboards of the beautiful hardwood floors. Over the years, lots of stuff has fallen between them, especially considering I have dogs. So dog fur, pieces of their food and treats, tons of dust, etc. The suction on this thing is so great that it sucked all that stuff right up from between the boards. I don’t think this apartment has ever been cleaner than it is now.The noise: It’s quite quiet compared to the shop vac I had prior to this vacuum. My dogs hate/attack it far less than my previous vacuum. I’m used to fighting off dogs while vacuuming; this thing is quiet enough that they don’t perceive it as a threat. Which makes the process easier.The filters: I have a sensitivity to mold and have been very sick in the past from black mold at another apartment. I know this building has water damage too, but there is no visible water damage in my unit. However, as humid at the climate here is, and as much as I can smell a musty odor, I became very concerned about recurrent mold exposure – plus became symptomatic again. I got a great dehumidifier to dry the unit out, and this vacuum, unlike others I’ve had in the past, does not disturb and throw dust/mold spores up into the air. Instead it is all sucked into the vacuum where the triple filtration means that I’m not risking exposure when I vacuum by aerosolizing the spores (which I know are there – they are everywhere). I even used it to lightly vacuum the bottom of my IQ Air prefilter to remove the dog hair and large debris, and I’ve had no reaction and seen no floating particles in the air during this process. I do also run my IQ Air at the highest setting while vacuuming, and that thing is a powerhouse.The attachments: I think they are great. The main floor attachment is obviously quality. I like the upholstery attachment – it works really well for pet hair and my couch has never been cleaner. It also did a great job on my curtains. The round soft bristled attachment is really great for strong suction on delicate scratch-able surfaces like wood furniture. It’s gentle but will pick up all the dust. The narrow attachment for edges is great – fantastic size for getting into narrow spaces too.The various suction settings: I like that I can turn down the suction because as another reviewer noted, this thing is powerful, and on full suction it would be very difficult to maneuver over a small rug.I love this thing. A great investment.

    My favorite appliance of all time is the vacuum and I love this one!

    I’ve been a die hard Dyson fan for 15+ years and I’ve owned 2 Dysons. The vacuum is my favorite appliance and my favorite chore. My first basic Dyson was amazing and gave up the ghost just recently – some of the plastic parts gave out and I didn’t want to spend any more to replace those parts, I was ready to move on. My 2nd Dyson was great but it had been made much more cheaply than the 1st gens, so I replaced many plastic parts on it, along with having to replace the head motor. It became apparent that Dyson was no longer interested in making a quality item for LONG use, especially given the price point.So, I read tons of reviews, articles, blogs, etc to find the Miele brand and decided that since my dysons were done-zo, and we were switching to hard wood flooring, I was ready to give this canister and brand a try!I have not been disappointed yet with Miele! It has crazy suction, the dial-down suction is a fantastic feature too. I love the self winding cord, the attachments, hose, and it’s ease of use. The bags can fill wayyyy up before it loses suction too, and it’s much cleaner than trying to empty a canister.I opted for the non-powered head since the majority of our home is now hard floors and it works amazing on them! Rotate the hose on the head and it can get fully under almost any furniture! I use it on the rugs and it also works great! Have a lighter weight rug that would normally get sucked up into a vacuum? On this one just turn down the power and now you can vacuum it!The only thing I don’t love is that it’s not super compact because of the hose since it’s not a spring/expansion type. So, it’s a little more tricky to find a space for it to be in for hide-a-way storage. But, I’ll put up with it since I love the vacuum so much.If you have carpet, I would 100% recommend going with the step up for the powered brush head.Happy vacuuming!

    More suction than you could ever need!

    Extremely quiet, even at the highest setting. Extreme suction-you can see dirt coming toward the vacuum from 6″ away. The electric cord rewind is strong, but not so fast as to have the plug slap you as it approaches-much appreciated! Best vacuum cleaner ever bought, and we’ve had many, all different brands. Well made, quiet, powerful. Well worth the money.

    One of the best

    Powerful suction, and you can adjust the motor speed and/or air control (near the linkage between hose and pipe). In this way you can obtain the strongest suction without making the vacuum hard to move around on the floor. I don’t use the original attachment, but purchased an aftermarket natural bristle (boar hair, camel?) attachment for about $20, and I find it works well on wooden floors, tile, vinyl, and the wool Persian rugs that we have. I don’t think I would want to use a powered brush on a fine rug. True, the bag is small, and the OEM bags are ridiculously expensive, but I buy aftermarkets, and I’d rather change them often than keep them inside the machine for a long time anyway, so as to reduce the odor build up. Yes, it would be nice to have the power cord longer than about 20 ft, however it is very convenient to be able to step on the button and have it roll back in the machine automatically. This is definitely a good vacuum, and I trust that it’ll last many years.

    Never knew what I was missing.

    I’ve been using vacuums for more than 30+ years and had the usual expectations of them… mostly loud, harsh vibrations, left an odd residue smell, and usually broken or 1/2 of their original performance and new quality feel after just a few years. Well fast forward to this weekend when I took the plunge into a vacuum brand i knew nothing about and my vacuum game just got elevated. Quiet, solidly built, functional, strong suction, useful on the fly settings and a design that is appealing and classic. On top of all that, the price was comparable to what I payed for a now “curbside” vacuum that lasted only a couple years.The Miele C1 Classis is the “base” model of the Miele vacuum brand but at least for me its worlds ahead of any brand I’ve used before.As far as my actual vacuuming trial this weekend, it handled great with just the base model and the floor to carpet switchable head that came with it. I have about 80% hardwood floors and the rest are either low pile or some rougher indoor/outdoor mats which this vacuum did a great job on. I found that the very accessible exhaust adjust on the handle allowed for fast changes of suction – including when i had to open them up fully going over more shag rug carpets. Maybe in the near future i may add a roller attachment to get more stubborn debris like buried lint deep in the carpet but so far 99% of what I need to vacuum is handled by this machine.If I could make changes to the C1 it would be to have a hand operated off/on switch and perhaps having the vacuum a bit lighter.. but I think those are not possible on this base model in order to keep the costs down and put the money towards the more crucial points of the vacuum like the powerful yet quiet vacuum motor (common to all models) and the overall build quality of the rest of the components. No regrets at all on this purchase.

    Switched back to a canister vacuum with a bag after one year of upright Dyson ball. Quieter and lighter (even including canister!!!), the head is more flexible; it’s easier to reach corners or under furniture.Cons: The cord could have been a bit longer, one may need to stop and re-plug in a larger house. The dust bags are relatively expensive compared to other brands.

    Customer Service is Terrible

    Miele does NOT stand behind their product. I purchased two Miele Canister Vacuum Cleaners through Amazon: a Miele Classic C1 Turbo Team Canister vacuum cleaner in tech blue on June 30, 2019, and aMiele Classic C1 Pure Section Bagged Canister vacuum in Graphite Grey on February 14, 2023.On one vacuum hose, both connection socket pieces came off. On the other vacuum hose, one connection socket piece came off. The hose that both socket pieces came off now pops off the telescopic suction wand when used. This should not happen, particularly to the second vacuum that is not even a year old. When I contacted Miele customer service about this, I was told to contact Amazon since I bought the vacuum cleaners through them. Amazon is not the manufacturer of this product! Thanks, Miele, for not standing behind your product. I will not be purchasing any further Miele vacuum cleaners. Just a warning should a purchaser of this vacuum cleaner have problems down the line. I gather they didn’t like that I purchased through Amazon instead of the Miele website.

    We were sold on the description that stated this could be used on area rugs but the reality is that it does not have a spinning bristle and therefore, useless on rugs. This would be an extremely good vacuum if one only had hard flooring. Had to return.

Should have looked into that better because I really wish it had those features. Other than that, great purchase!

    Fraction of the prices to other vacuums and out works them.

    Having many many types of vacuums from cordless to upright, lift away to canister ETC throughout the years. After researching vac after vac I decided on a Miele canister, I purchased the lowest priced Miele there is ($260 i believe) and added my own attachments and hepa filters and extra bags to meet my needs all for well under $400 you cannot beat this vacuum. It has great suction, it rolls nicely, it’s light weight storage is not an issue even in a small home. Believe me when I say this is a wonderful vacuum for whole house cleaning, top to bottom, i have had lift away uprights and this canister is much lighter than the liftaways i was so surprised. Before purchasing this vac (C1 classic) I was going to purchase a rainbow, they are great had one in the past, water filtration is the best in my opinion, but after reviewing countless vacuums I gave Miele a shot and I couldn’t be happier with my decision. The air in my house is cleaner i know this because dusting has been cut in half, cleaner floors, window sills, ceiling fans, mattresses you name it, it’s been vacuumed. And it takes less time to dust and vacuum with this vacuum cleaner I’m assuming due to the high suction and maneuverability and the right attachments I can do my whole house and a deep clean in no time. I have used this vacuum nearly every day since purchasing, about a month or so now, and is working like it did day one. For reference I have an all hard floor home no carpet some area rugs with one messy husband and two cats. I’ve had all the name brand vacs from dyson, shark, rainbow, etc, I will never go back to a bag less vac and will never go back to a cordless vac. This vacuum has proven to restrict dirty air from escaping the bag back into the room and the retractable cord is just long enough for my needs, even if I have to replug elsewhere in the house i am Totally fine with that, it’s better than waiting for a battery to charge to finish vacuuming. If you want cleaner air in your home and a vacuum that does the job in half the time this is the one for you. I’m a clean freak and I highly recommend this vacuum!

    I don’t usually leave reviews and comments but I feel so happy with this marvel of german engineering that I taking an exception.Ive been looking for a vacuum cleaner other than the usual brands available in the US, bcz they don’t satisfy my need for clean floors.To begin with, I have a cat and she sheds hair obviously. Also, my home is mostly hardwood. So no regular vacuum cleaner can possibly do the job for me. I have tried those robots. Also fancy cordless ones. Neither was good enough. I have know Miele brand for a like 15 years and since it is considered as a “fancy” brand outside the US, I didnt bother look for it since I thought it is super expensive. Tadaaaa, its not.I love this vacuum cleaner. It is the base model but it is great. Awesome vacuum power. Pretty quiet. Even my cat is not scared of it, though she hates it!!Cleans my furniture perfectly.I definitely recommend this one.

    Top Vacuum

    Top vacuum, lightweight, looks sturdy, excellent quality feel. I have used Miele vacs in a different country for decades and they always kept running strong and dependable. This one seems to follow suit.

    Meets the high standards of this cleaning business owner!

    As a cleaning business the vacuums you use can make or break your business! I had standards of what I was looking for in a vacuum and I am in love with this Miele vacuum!The casters roll with ease, the attachments are on the canister to easily change out and use, and preforms exactly as needed for a detailed deep clean.The only con for me is that there is not a power head that comes with it. So this vacuum is for hard surfaces and not really for carpet. I did order the power head and now it’s the favorite vacuum with my cleaning company. I have already orderd anoter one since the teams are fighting over Miele.
