The Miele Classic C1 Delphi is Miele’s multi floor canister vacuum with 1 powered floor tool. It is extremely lightweight, weighing only 11 lbs. Miele vacuums are extremely quiet compared to other canisters (they are sound insulated) and are German engineered to last. The included AirClean Filter outputs air cleaner than the air it takes in. This keeps the dust and dirt in the bag and out of the air you breathe. A rotary dial adjusts the suction power to your needs, and even has a quiet setting. You can rewind the retractable cord automatically by stepping on a switch on the back of the canister. The carrying handle makes it easy to carry the vacuum up and down the stairs. Miele VarioClip allows for On Hose Tool Storage. Crush proof electric hose adds durability. The telescoping wands are made of stainless steel, made for long-term usage. Rubber wheels won’t scratch your hardwood floors.

Miele C1 Delphi Tools Include: crevice nozzle, dusting brush and upholstery tool. Also included is the SEB217 Power Brush Tool which is an electrically-driven carpet tool with a floating head and swivel neck design which is ideal for low/medium-pile carpets. An electric powered tool is more powerful than an air driven floor tool. Deluxe handle with controls to turn the electrobrush on/off.

Miele’s Air Clean System: consists of an Air Clean FilterBag and an AirClean Filter which keeps the air clean as you vacuum. A new filter is included in every box of dust bags. An optional HEPA filter is available. The Delphi C1 has a total reach of 29 1/2 feet so you can vacuum longer without switching outlets. The Miele Delphi uses Self Sealing Dust Bags with a generous 4.76 quart capacity. The Miele Type GN bags have a 9-stage filtration system and self-locking Auto-Seal collar so dirt stays in the bag and does not leak out. The Bag Full indicator, lets you know when to change the dust bag. Miele Vacuums are tested to last 20 years and include a 7 Year Motor Warranty. A Miele canister will outlast many cheaper models, even though the Miele is more expensive initially.

C1 Delphi Total Reach (cord and hose): 29.5 feet.
Vacuum Warranty: 1-year limited warranty vacuum parts and labor. 7-year motor warranty.
Vacuum Weight: 11 lbs.
Model Number: SBAN032

Smart-Review Commentary: The Miele Delphi C1 is Miele’s multi-floor canister which comes with 1 floor tool. The floor tool is electrically powered for floors and carpets (low to medium pile), with a brush bar that can be turned on or off from the handle. This is the lowest priced Miele Canister with an electric powered floor tool. The AirClean filter and AirClean dust bags used on this vacuum have a 9 stage filter, ideal for those sensitive to dust. A new pre-motor filter and Super Air Clean Exhaust Filter are included in every box of Miele dust bags. The bags have a large 4.76 quart capacity, so you won’t have to change them as frequently. The self sealing bags are designed so that you won’t have to be exposed to the dirt, just throw the bag away in the trash. All rubber wheels won’t mar or scratch your hardwood floors. The Miele Delphi has received the Good Housekeeping seal of approval. Its telescoping wand is made of stainless steel (cheaper vacs are made of aluminum). The durability of this vacuum is excellent, as all Miele vacuums are tested to last 20 years. Its telescoping wand and hose gives you a long reach to clean stairs, walls, drapes, and ceilings. Miele vacuums are known for keeping the air cleaner than other brands of vacuums. This model has received extremely high marks from professional reviews as well as outstanding reviews by consumers. This model is a Smart-Review top pick for Canister vacuums for hardwood, tile, bare floors and low/medium pile carpets.
