We simplify the process of choosing and buying a Miele Vacuum Cleaner. Miele offers two styles of vacuum cleaner, Miele Canister Vacuums and Miele Cordless Vacuums. Follow our guide and find the perfect Miele Vacuum for you. New to the Miele lineup are cordless and bagless vacuums. Miele Cordless Vacuums feature the cleaning performance of the Complete C3 Calima. When you decide to buy vacuums online, if you have a preference you should stick with the style of vacuum that you are comfortable using.


Miele Canister Vacuums

Buy a canister if you have high-end carpet or mostly bare floors and area rugs.


Miele Canister Vacuums Buying Guide

Miele canisters are a bit more complicated than uprights, currently they offer 3 series of canisters C1, CX1 and C3.

Though there are important differences between bagged and bagless as well as each series, these feature options are not nearly as important as choosing the right floor tool.


Floor Tools for Canister - Carpet Tool

All Miele vacuums work beautifully on wood floors and tile. For carpet there are four different tools designed to let you tailor the vacuum exactly to your needs.

SEB 236

Bagged vs Bagless Canister

Bagless vacuums have very low operating cost, because you don’t have to buy consumables such as bags and filters.


With the removal of consumables bagless canisters require more maintenance; bins must be emptied, interior parts wiped down and filters washed and dried. All this is well worth it to some people, while others prefer the ease of just dropping a bag into the garbage bin.


If there are people in your home who have serious allergies or asthma, we recommend getting a sealed HEPA vacuum with a bag. A fully sealed bagged vacuum is much more hygienic and exposes the user to significantly less dust during maintenance.

Each time you move up in the canister series (and in price) you get more features and higher quality fit and finish. Starting with the entry level Classic C1 series and ending with the Complete C3 series, all the vacuums have the same great suction.
