Miele Vacuum CleanersBest Rated Miele Vacuum Cleaners Comparison & Reviews – This is a roundup of the best rated Miele Canister and Upright vacuums currently available. Miele is a premier, german engineered vacuum made with the best materials for long life. Miele vacuums have always received the highest consumer reviews in both canister and upright vacuums. Miele vacuums are also engineered to be quieter than other brands with the ability to adjust the amount of power. Miele created the world’s first HEPA certified vacuum. All Miele vacuums use self sealing bags, to keep the dust in, when you remove them from your vacuum. With strong suction, Miele vacuums are great for pet hair removal. If they fit your budget, we highly recommend this brand of vacuums, as they will outlast many cheaper vacuums. Miele canister vacuums with strong suction, non marking rubber wheels, and parquet wood floor brushes are especially suited for hardwood floors. Miele vacuums are tested for 20 years of usage. All Miele vacuums either have HEPA filters, or have the option to buy them. Below are the top Miele 2015-2016 canister and upright vacuums listed to compare features and model differences, price and reviews.

Miele Vacuum Glossary of Terms

12-stage AirClean Sealed™ System = The Miele C3 Complete Canister series uses a totally sealed 12 stage filtration system with HEPA Filter to clean the air you breathe. It is Miele’s best filtration system. Captures 99.9% of particles.
Electric Hose = Some Miele Canister vacuums have an electric hose that has electrical power available for electric powered floor tools with motor driven brushes, suitable for deeper pile carpets.
Silence Motor Feature = The Miele C2 and C3 Series Canisters feature a 1,200-watt Miele-Made Vortex Motor™ with Silence motor feature to keep your vacuuming quieter than most other canister vacuums. Miele uses a specially insulated motor to achieve this sound reduction.
Hardwood Floors = Miele canister vacuums are especially suited for hardwood floors. Miele vacuums have high suction, rubber wheels that won’t scratch floors. Many Miele canisters come with a Parquet Hardwood Floor Brush, with soft bristles, that won’t mark your floors.
Pet Hair Removal = Miele vacuums have strong suction and are ideal for pet hair removal. With an air or electric driven brush head, Miele vacuums are also suitable to remove pet hair from carpets and rugs.
Soft and High Plush Carpeting = Soft carpeting will present a problem with many vacuums, as the suction will form a seal with the extra dense carpet and make is hard to push the vacuum smoothly over the dense carpet. Miele vacuums have been recommended by Soft carpet manufacturers. Some soft carpeting brands are SmartStrand Silk, Caress®, Karastan, and Soft Spring. Miele has two models that come with the carpet manufacturer recommended SEB228 electric floor/carpet tool which is ideal for Soft and High Pile Plush carpets. These models are the Miele Kona, and the Miele Cat & Dog Canister Vacuums.
Miele C1 vs. C2 vs. C3 Series Canister Vacs = The main differences between the C1 vs. the C2 & C3 Series is that the C2 & C3 Series has an AirClean Sealed system, a step above, using more gaskets to seal the whole system. (The C2 and C3 Series also has new lower-noise, Vortex Motor™ ). The other difference between the series is the size of the canister. The C1 is compact, C2 is mid-size, and C3 is full-size. The C3 is different from the others in that it has a 12-stage AirClean Sealed™ System, which is not found on the other vacuums.
Miele model differences = Within each model group, for example the C1 series canister vacs, the main vacuum unit is identical. The difference within each model group is the color, the included accessories, the filter type included. Another difference is whether the wand is electric or not. An electric wand will transfer electricity to the powerhead for a motorized floor tool. These are the main differences among Miele vacuums in the same series range.
Power Settings = All Miele vacuums allow you to adjust the suction power of their vacuums by controlling suction motor speed. This is most useful for vacuuming delicate rugs, drapes, and fabrics. Many other vacuums give you limited or no control of suction power.
Whisper Quiet = Miele vacuums are designed to be quieter than other brands of vacuums. They are sound insulated, and have variable speed suction motors that can be reduced so as not to disturb others, and your pets.
Bagged Vacuum = All Miele vacuums use dust bags. They self seal when you remove them from the vacuum so you don’t have any dust flying around. A 9 layer filtration system is built-in to the bag.
HEPA Filter = All Miele Vacuums can have a HEPA filter. Some come pre-installed with a HEPA filter. A HEPA filter is best for those with allergies to dust. HEPA filters will remove the smallest particles of dirt, dust, and pet hair so that you don’t breathe in what you are vacuuming.
Active AirClean Filter = Miele Cat & Dog Vacuums (both upright and canister), use a special filter with activated charcoal to trap pet odors, and output clean air when vacuuming.
AirClean Sealed System = This sealed system contains dirt and dust from escaping any area of the vacuum with gaskets. This feature is only available on the Miele C2 and C3 canister series and the U1 upright series.
Handle Brush Control = Those vacuums with an electric hose, have a convenient control built-in to the handle to turn the beater brush on and off.
Extension Hose = All miele uprights have an extension hose, which allows you to vacuum not only the carpet or floor, but to vacuum upholstery, drapes, stairs, and walls.
Mini Turbo Brush = The Miele Cat & Dog Upright includes an air driven mini turbo brush tool to vacuum upholstery, car seats, and other areas. This is especially useful for removing pet hair. Also available on the Miele Cat & Dog Canister.
LED Headlights = Certain models of Miele Uprights (Jazz, Cat & Dog, Swing) have a built in LED lighting system to see the dirt and dust you are vacuuming. The Miele UniQ canister has a floor tool with headlights.
Stainless Steel Wand = Miele Vacuums use stainless steel for their wands, and not cheaper metals seen on other brands, for long-term durability.
Differences between the C3 and S8 Series Miele Canister Vacuums = The only real difference is that the S8 is last year’s model, and the C3 is this year’s model. No major differences, they are virtually identical canister vacuums. Both are full size canisters.
Miele Tested for 20 year life = Miele vacuums are tested to last 20 years, for long-term durability.
Swivelneck™ = Miele uprights have the Swivelneck™ feature so that they can maneuver better than most uprights around walls, and furniture. Miele uprights can also lay flat to the floor to get under tables and furniture.
Micro Tool Set = The Miele Swing Upright comes with the Microset SFD20 tool set for cleaning delicate items, such as inside computers, artwork, etc. These miniature vacuum tools will fit in areas traditional brushes cannot go. The Miele Swing also comes with a flexible crevice tool that bends around corners.
Differences between the U1 and S7 Series Miele Upright Vacuums = The models in both of these series are identical, only the model numbers have changed. The S7 was last year’s model, and the U1 series is the current model.
