What Consumer Reports doesn’t tell you
I don’t like long reviews at all but I highly recommend reading this one. It seems appropriate for such an expensive vacuum..... I’ve had a Miele C3 for several weeks now and researched vacuums obsessively before buying while my 2 year old and 4 month old sons slept. As a stay at home mom with a tod...

Quiet, well built and designed
This vacuum was the highest rated cannister by Consumer Reports, which is frequently my go-to source for product selection. I have an upright vacuum and have a hard time taking it upstairs. This vacuum is very quiet, we'll built, designed and performs well. It's very expensive and I hope runs a long...

My Ex Got The House And The Miele...
Look, I'm a guy, so what do I know about a vacuum cleaner if it isn't a Shopvac being used in the garage? Well I do know something about using great tools that perform to advertised claims if not higher. I also know the difference between poor, good and great design, materials and craftsmanship. I'm...

Recommendations for a good vacuum for carpeted and hardwood floor for people with long hair and cats?
**Miele**. We’ve got the Complete C3, and it’s amazing for our two cats, rugs, and hardwoods. (To be clear: we do not vacuum the cats, just their shedded fur.)
Wanted to LOVE it, but...
Updated a few years later - still the worst vacuum ever for anything more than light dust covering. This takes up space in the closet but the inexpensive shark-type vacuums are so much better, and are the ones we use every other day. Original - I REALLY wanted to love this vac since I paid a grand f...

Exceptional Vacuum Built To Last
For decades Electrolux vacuum cleaners were my go-to for home vacuum cleaning. When Electrolux departed the vacuum cleaner business in 2017 the quality of remaining vacuum collection bags for their machines steadily decreased to the point of complete inadequacy. Since my October 1, 2021 purchase of ...

Two weeks in and I cannot recommend it enough! Sebo D4
We feel that using the vacuum is very easy on your back compared to our experience with upright units. The hose in this model with the pivoting head makes it easy and less burdensome, since you don't have to worry about the hose getting twisted up on you. Switching attachments is also very quick and easy, and the different mechanisms feel like the rest of the unit, well made and durable.

I wasn't much of a Miele fan before...but the Complete C3 totally lives up to the hype!
* The 6 ft hose just doesn't feel long enough, especially since you only have a limited swivel at the handle end. I often find myself needing to remove the hose from the wand just to get it untwisted. Makes me miss my Simplicity Cinch with the full swivel at both hose ends. * Due to the size of the machine, I don't feel super comfortable standing it on my stair steps.
