Product Description

Compare Miele S8 Vacuums

Recommended for all flooring types, the Miele UniQ S8 is Miele’s most advanced vacuum cleaner. The flagship Miele UniQ S8, combining the S8 series’  convenience and exceptional performance features with Miele’s powerful SEB 236 premium powerbrush and luxurious finishes, is possibly the best vacuum cleaner ever made.

Designed, engineered and built in Germany, the Miele S8 UniQ vacuum cleaner is lighter, quieter and offers improved cleaning performance over its predecessor, the Miele S5. The Miele UniQ includes both the SEB 236 Electro Premium powerbrush with headlamp and the Parquet Twister hard floor brush, so you have the right tool for any floor surface.

Suction controls on the handle make it easy to choose the setting you need. Or use the Automatic setting that picks the best setting for optimum cleaning and energy usage, even as you move from one surface to another.

With its HEPA filter and the patented AirClean Filter Bag integrated into Miele’s Sealed System, the Miele UniQ traps 99.9% of lung damaging particles in the machine. The Miele S8 UniQ also features Silence System Plus that combines a new encapsulated motor and integrated insulation to make the Miele S8 exceptionally quiet without sacrificing power.

A 3D velvet bumper wraps around the Miele UniQ  to protect furniture, walls and the vacuum itself. Velvet also lines the on-board storage compartment that holds the crevice nozzle, upholstery nozzle and dusting brush. The extra-long cord with one-touch automatic rewind helps give the Miele UniQ vacuum an exceptionally wide 36-foot cleaning radius.

Warranty: 10-year suction motor; 10-year casing; 5-year all non-wearing components.

First class, all the way - Jennifer

I really started to sweat when I clicked on the buy button for uniq, but I don't regret it all.
The whole experience was top notch. I ordered the vacuum and flexi crevice tool early Tuesday morning and had it in my hands Wednesday morning. A representative even called me a couple of hours after I placed my order to thank me and confirm my shipping address.
Now on to the best part: this machine is really a superstar. It is much quieter than my previous uprights that start with D. It has so many settings that I have just been cleaning everything. It even cleans those super thin bath rugs!
I have been really pleased so far! (Posted on 5/1/14)
