Miele S163 Universal Upright Stick Vacuum Cleaner Review


Avg. consumer rating = 73/100 Like most Miele vacuum cleaners this one works very well but reviews are fairly average and it is also expensive. Having said that, it was recently rated by Consumers Digest as a Best Buy. Owner ratings on this unit are...

Lightweight (just under 10 lbs which some consumers consider light) ; Powerful ; Quiet ; Corded (as opposed to battery operated) with fairly long cord ; Good on both carpet and bare floors ; Low maintenance

No dusting brush ; Small vacuum cleaner bags ; Expensive ; A bit heavy (contrary to the Lightweight comments, some consumers feel that just under 10 lbs is too heavy for a stick vac.)

For those of you who want more details on the vacuum itself you may wish to look at the Miele S163 Manual.

Miele S160, best stick vacuum I've owned


I have a tile floor in my kitchen that I vacuum every other day. I was tired of always having to pick up grains of rice or pet hair by hand that my old stick vacuums missed. The Miele gets up everything that it's aimed at, it doesn't miss a thing. It's...

great buy


I use it on just about everything...hardwood floors, carpets, stairs, crevices, and wall molding. It has great suction, attachments are easily changed, the only thing I would improve is the rolling capability on the main rug and floor tool brush. Great...

Best vacuum I have ever owned


This vacuum does it all.  Very durable, very clean with allergies, very nice styling and feels sooo sturdy and high quality.  I would never buy anything but a Miele, much nicer than the sebo or simplicity.

Quality construction, very clean air discharge, easy to love

Too short a cord

Excellent machine!


I live in France, so these are definitely cheaper here than the states, so that made the decision to buy easier. I have a small apartment with wood floors- sweeping never got them clean because dirt would just fall in the cracks and then stick to ...

Lightweight, versatile, powerful, well-built.
