Powerful

Partner and I settled on this as a replacement for my old dyson which I'd had for 15 years. What a difference, it is extremely powerful (had to dial down a setting to protect my old elbows). Cleans easy, empties easy. Doesnt seem to leave a dust trail (we did choose bagless, for the most sensitive of folk bagged would be a final filtration, we just couldnt be bothered). Only complaint with it, is where they placed the small brush. It is built in to the upper part of the handle.... Miele.... mate, I wanna brush the low and high corners, I need an attachment at the end of the shaft, not the top of it so that I must be on knees to do skirtings and on a ladder to do ceilings. Otherwise, love it . Show details ·  1

not good for miele

unfortunately this Vacuum Cleaner turns itself off to do " comfort mode" rendering it useless for its purpose we bought this product as expected good backup from miele .. no such thing as goodwill & as luck would have it the unexpectedly short warranty of a " good" product? expired last month .. obviously with a high self esteemed product one shouldn't need a extended warranty.. our last Miele Vacuum was 17 years old & only died because of the 2019 bushfires Show details

Nowhere near as good as the bagged version

We brought this after previously owning the bagged vacuum. The suction on this model is poor. Vacuumming takes a lot longer, and the roller is always becoming blocked. Really sorry we spent so much money on this model. Show details

Disappointed!

Have had this vacuum for 2 years and although it sucks extremely well, I have already had 3 things go wrong with it. 1)cord retraction no longer works, 2)when pole is lengthened it won't stay extended and 3)small brush won't stay in place when extended. It is also heavy and cumbersome. It's like Miele have concentrated all their efforts on the sucking power and nothing on the design. Should be better for a relatively high priced product. Couldn't recommend this vacuum cleaner and I will probably return to Dyson for my next purchase Show details

Worst purchase

Bought 2 months ago
The head fills up with hair I have 3 girls with long hair and after every use takes me forever to get hair out
You can’t remove rollers like a Dyson and definitely not suitable for stairs it’s very heavy
Called Miele and was advised to get scissors to remove hair but it’s so tangled in there
Does not live up to its price
Overall it’s a waste of time and money would not recommend Show details

Worst vaccum cleaner ever

I have brought Miele vac cleaners before and loved them, this would have to be the worst EVER VC
Constantly runs Comfort function, bagless compartment only holds about 1/2 cup before this kicks in, Useless on non carpet floors, power cord gets caught constantly, and all in all it really struggles to clean floors, I absoultly hate it, will NEVER buy a Miele brand again Show details

Best Vacuum Cleaner Ever!

Have had 2 Dysons previously, both uprights and found them cumbersome and heavy. Did not want a hand held as on full power battery life is ridiculously short. Did some research and found this Miele. We have 2 cats, hardwood and carpet floors and this works extremely well, in fact, better than the Dysons. And it is half the price of a Dyson. It is very quiet and easy to move around. Highly recommend. Show details ·  1

Love the Blizzard

I have 2 shedding dogs and a labradoodle that brings the dog park debris home. The Blizzard makes short work of the endless dust and fur on parquet and rugs alike. Just one niggle...the inbuilt brush head gets stuck in the extended position. Show details ·  1

Over priced junk

We bought this vacuum cleaner thinking that it being a good European name (and damned expensive!) would be a great vacuum cleaner for a house with two dogs, a Labrador and a long coated German Shepherd and two cats, we were wrong.
The turbo head clogs with hair in a very short time and needs a sharp cutting tool to free up, short of pulling it pieces it will not be able to be fully cleaned.
The handle is made from plastic and has broken, making vacuuming a painful chore, the metal connector will flex and collapse if weight is placed on, like getting a particular ground in patch of shepherd hair.
A very disappointing machine and as I said over priced, but then again what does one expect put of the EU nowadays... Show details

I would just like to add that Miele customer service did come to the party and were very good about things, the Australian customer service is first rate

Frustrating

This vacuum replaced my excellent miele bagged cat and dog vacuum of about 15-20 years. I have tiled and oak flooring in a modest sized modern house with myself and 2 border collies/several cats/an open fire place all that my previous vacuum coped with no problems. This vacuum if it comes across anything larger than a microscopic piece of dust stops and goes into comfort mode for 20 seconds on a very regular basis. It is the most frustrating useless and expensive appliance I have had the misfortune to have purchased. Not fit for purpose if you have cats and dogs. This review does not reflect the actual thoughts and language that emanates when using this appliance. Show details

Bought this a couple of months ago from Amazon and as soon as I used it on wood floors it seemed too quiet and suction was not great but I thought that was how it was supposed to be! until someone else used it and sis how awful it was...appears I may have got a dud. How can I get an exchange situated in Australia

Good morning, my Bluzzard CX1 comfort/clean light keeps coming on & the machine makes a knocking noise then turns off. What could this be? All my filters are kept cleaned. Could you please just answer the question on here. It would makes things so much quicker.
