Miele Capricorn Canister Vacuum S5980 Review and Prices


If you're in the market for a luxury vacuum, check out the Miele Capricorn Canister Vacuum S5980. As with most high-end products, the Miele Capricorn has likeable features topped by a good-looking sliver "luna" exterior.

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 a great job

Miele S5980


Powerful machine, well made. This is the second Miele vacuum we have had. The first is still in use and as powerful as ever after 6 years hard use.

The price, but prior to buying a Miele we had several vacuums none of which lasted more than a year. Six years hard use make this good value.

Miele S5980


It's wonderful, I like the electronic handle - it makes live much easier. Sucking is ok, it's very strong. I like the bag and all attachements and turbo brush.

A bit to heavy

Miele S5980


Excellent suction. Its stating the obvious but this is the one thing a vacuum cleaner must be good at. The Miele definitely delivers here. Seems a good solid build. Very quiet in use.

I find the long solid hose can make the Miele awkward to use in tight areas. It goes through bags a lot faster than then Miele seems to indicate.

Very quiet Solidly built

Unit itself is quite heavy. Telescopic tubes are way too heavy.
