Good for what I use it for

 

I clean window treatments, upholstery and sometimes carpets for a living. I need to depend on my machines. Most vacuums today are overpriced, plastic, throwaway, junk. When I do carpets, I need to get the dirt out down deep from ...

Heavy duty plastic body, not too loud, robust hose, good center of gravity, light

Useless for carpet, overpriced, expensive to repair

Miele S251

 

This canister vaccum to me is very bulky, I do not like the canister dragging behind me. I have a very small home, and although this vaccum really does a great job.....I do not like the fact that I have to keep pulling the whole thing around behind...

Does clean extremely well

toooo bulky

Excellent piece of equipment!

 

I collect vacuums as a hobby (have 35 machines in my living room!), and used to sell them for Sears and Kirby, so I know a little bit about them.  I had been wanting a Miele (pronounced to rhyme with Sheila) for years, but the high price tag prohibited...

great quality, very powerful, very quiet, 360 degree swivel casters

no on board storage for some tools, non-integrated power nozzle cord

It IS The Mercedes of Vacuums!

 

I have several vacuums, including a Kirby, a Rainbow, and this Miele. I've owned the Plus for more than 5 years now; it's identical to the one still for sale. I've seen vacuums come and go, but this Miele gets more use than any other in my ...

Compact, quiet, superb construction

Haven't found any in 5+ years

Miele is the BMW of vacuum cleaners

 

I purchased this Miele after reading all the wonderful reviews. I was planning to buy the Antares, but when I found out it did not come with a power beater brush, I decided on the Miele Plus. I prefer quality construction over bells and whistles, which...

Quiet, maneuverable, proficient, small, lightweight

Removing power beater brush is cumbersome and bothersome. Minimal on-board attachment storage.

It's better than my cleaning lady

 

This review starts on a wistful note: I used to have a cleaning lady... The cleaning lady was not too diligent and had to go. Before she did, she can be credited with one good deed: she recommended this Miele vacuum cleaner, which we bought for $350,...

Quiet, efficient, easy to use - and pretty, to boot

Dustbags and filters are more expensive than those of comparable US models

Miele is the only vacuum to buy!

 

We have had our Miele Flamenco for over six years. When we bought the Flamenco, I had never even heard of Miele. My husband said that the Miele was the only vacuum cleaner to buy. I thought he was crazy to pay $400 for a vacuum. I had used Hoover and ...
