For over 100 years, Miele's name has been synonymous with innovative and high-quality appliances. Like any luxury brand, however, there can be instances of sticker shock. We are frequently asked if Miele's vacuum cleaners are worthy of their price tags. Before we tell you what we think, here are the facts:

Miele vacuum cleaners are engineered and manufactured in Germany.
Germany's engineers are renowned worldwide and take great pride in their craftsmanship. Miele's engineers are no exception. Miele's motto ("Immer Besser") translates to "forever better," a testament to the brand's commitment to high quality manufacturing and continuing innovation. When you purchase a Miele vacuum cleaner, you can rest assured that you own a powerful, meticulously designed appliance that will serve you well for many years. With that in mind...

The average lifespan of a Miele vacuum cleaner is at least twenty years. 
As with any household appliance, you want to be sure that your vacuum cleaner is going to last you a long time. There is nothing more frustrating than investing in a vacuum cleaner that deteriorates after just a few short years, and Miele understands this. Miele is committed to engineering reliable and durable machines that will outlast the competition.

Miele vacuum cleaners offer exceptional allergen filtration.  Miele asthma and allergy households
A vacuum with good filtration capabilities is a must-have in allergy and asthma households. While all Miele vacuum cleaners offer Miele's exceptional AirClean filtration technology right out of the box, they can also accommodate HEPA filters. Active HEPA filtration technology can capture and trap up to 99.97% of allergens as small as 0.1 microns in size-- that's the size of some bacteria! Whether you choose to use the standard Miele filter or upgrade to an active HEPA filter, a Miele vacuum cleaner will keep the air in your home clean and free of irritating particles. 

Base models start at just $329. 
The Miele Classic C1 Olympus canister vacuum cleaner provides powerful suction and impeccable design at a price that won't break the bank. What's more, offers free shipping on all orders over $50. No matter which Miele vacuum cleaner you're considering, it will ship right to your door for free. 

Miele offers a wide range of attachments and power nozzles.
In addition to the standard attachments (crevice tool, dusting brush, and upholstery tool), Miele offers attachments for cleaning just about any surface. Do you have hardwood or other bare floors? There's a parquet floor brush for you. Do you have deep-pile carpets? The SEB-228 power nozzle is just one of the great electric power heads that Miele offers. Do you have soft carpeting? Several Miele models are Mohawk-recommended for cleaning frieze, silk, karastan, and other soft carpet types.

With a range of colors to choose from, Miele vacuum cleaners are not just appliances: they are extensions of your style. If you like your appliances to match, chances are good that there's a Miele vacuum cleaner that will fit right in. If you're looking to add a pop of color to chore day, Miele has you covered there, too. Miele's colors run the gamut from neutral tones to metallic and jewel tones. The Miele Jazz upright and Miele Calima canister are both available in a cheery canary yellow, which is sure to brighten your vacuuming duties. 

1,200 watt motors provide powerful suction with low noise output.
All of Miele's vacuum cleaners are equipped with powerful yet quiet 1,200 watt motors. Miele's Vortex motor optimizes airflow to provide the most powerful suction power available in compact canister vacuum cleaners. 

Miele vacuums are backed by generous warranties. 
Most of Miele's canister and upright vacuum cleaners are backed by seven year warranties on their bodies and motors, and one year warranties on attachments. The Miele Complete C3 Brilliant canister vacuum cleaner's body and motor are backed by an impressive ten year warranty. Regardless of the model you choose, this warranty covers any defects in material or construction. For more information about Miele's warranties, please check out our blog post on the topic. 

Miele offers the best post-sale service in the industry. 
Aside from generous product warranties, Miele also offers unrivaled after-sale customer service. Miele's Service Excellence Program provides technical assistance, troubleshooting help, and more over the phone or onsite. 

So, are Miele vacuum cleaners worth the money? The answer is a resounding "yes." Miele vacuum cleaners are durable, powerful, and meticulously well-engineered machines that can tackle any mess life throws at them.
