Am finally able to get rid of our el cheapo vacuum and want to replace it with a Miele, any recommendations on which one? The S700 is on sale at John Lewis at the moment and I like the sound of the turbo brush attachment for it, but would be grateful for advice! TIA
I have always had bad luck with vacuum cleaners, so shelled out £270 for a Miele upright. But after 18 months, the damned thing has gone wrong!
Luckily we bought it from John Lewis, so it's still under guarantee. The lady at JL said she couldn't remember the last time she had to deal with a malfunctioning Miele, so I guess we had a wrong 'un. Typical!
Having said that, I was pleased with it up until then and would still recommend them, as they are very sturdy and well-made. I prefer uprights as we have a lot of carpet area; mine's an S7210.
I have the cat and dog - cant remember number but it has a turbo head. You can turn the power down which is helpful as it practically raises the carpet! I thought the tool storage seemed hokey but it actually works ok (all attached to external hose). I got a Miele as my previous one broke - it was second hand, I had had it for 13 years and it had been sorely tried during a house renovation so I was happy to go for another one!
I have the cat and dog too. The turbo head is brilliant. It has a mini turbo head as well that you can use on the stairs. This is my first cylinder after having Hoovers and Dysons for years and years. I'd happily stick with my Miele.
