Miele Compact C2 Electro+ review

Lightweight and high durability

As mentioned earlier, this device is one of the favorite models in the compact series from Miele. With a canister weighing just 10 pounds, it can easily be lifted up the stairs and neatly moved around the house without turning over during a vacuuming. As a result of this, it is moderately lightweight making it easy for anyone to use.

Due to its lightweight, this device featuring an extending nozzle makes it possible to vacuum any form of carpet under the bed without any restrictions. Using the upholstery tool, it also makes it easy for its users to clean furniture, ceilings, wood blinds, and high surfaces around the house with minimal effort.

For those suffering from any kind of minimal physical injuries like pain in the arms or shoulders, it brings great relief and reduces pain or tiredness during use. It is also great for young adults or older people looking for a vacuum that minimizes stress and offers great cleaning results.

When it comes to the durability of this model, this German-made device ultimately offers the best quality and was engineered to perfection. With minimum maintenance required it is capable of functioning up to 20 years and more when used the right way. As you can tell this vacuum cleaner is certainly worth the investment.

Maximum versatility

Canister vacuums by default are designed to clean bare floors which is an expected feature of a functional vacuum cleaner. However, most of these canister vacuums are restricted to cleaning bare floors only. For those who have a combination of bare floors, carpets or rugs in their homes, such vacuum cleaners are not advisable. However, with the introduction of this particular model, cleaning has never been much easier and faster for such people. It is suitable for all floor types and can, therefore, be used in every home.

In light of this, we believe what makes the Miele Compact C2 Electro+ highly versatile is its ability to work on all kinds of floors whether Turkish or Persian rugs, hardwood floors or deep pile carpets. This multifunctional ability sets it apart from all other canister vacuums and makes it suitable for all users. To perform this special function of cleaning all floor surfaces, this device comes with an electrical powered rotary brush. The majority of canister vacuums do not have this feature.

Its maximum versatility can also be linked to the fact that when life happens as it sometimes does and we need to change houses or embrace a different kind of lifestyle, this vacuum cleaner can still come in handy. You do not have to dispose of it for these reasons and so this increases its longevity and usefulness. It also helps save money and is an investment worth every penny since it can be used for a long period.

Premium filtration

Miele Compact C2 bagged vacuum+This device has an advanced filtration system that has a HEPA air clean filter with a sealed system design that traps approximately 99.9% of air from vacuuming. Because the vacuum is completely sealed there is no escape for dust particles that could contaminate the atmosphere in the home while cleaning. The HEPA filter in addition to the high filtration replaceable bags that are usually present in every Miele traps a lot of dirt hygienically in the filter bag. This filter bag is said to contain about 3.5 quarts of dirt in volume so it has a high retention dirt capacity.

The air is further cleaned up as it goes through the vacuum and then to the HEPA Filter cartridge where the tiniest particles or allergy particles before being released into the breathing air are trapped in the HEPA filter. This is especially important for people suffering from allergies because they are protected from these allergy particles. Therefore, with the presence of the HEPA filter, dust or allergy particles are not being released to contaminate the breathing air. So if you are suffering from allergies, then this particular model might be the best option for you.

Inferior filtration has a negative effect on a vacuum cleaner. As a result, maximum filtration is not only useful for the users but important for the vacuum so that the motor does not suffer or work extra. A motor that suffers over a period is likely unable to breathe so the vacuum shuts out and dies within a few years. Therefore, you need a vacuum cleaner such as this with a filter system that can be changed constantly. This is so the air can move again because when the pores of the filter get filled up, a replaceable filter is necessary to keep the air fresh. So when it comes to premium filtration, we recommend this model.

Optimum functional capacity

Miele Compact C2 Electro+ canister vacuum cleaner

The Miele Compact C2 Electro+ ultimately carries out some functions with its unique components. One of such is the intensive deep cleaning that can be achieved with the SEB 228 Electro plus floorhead. This electrically motorized rotary brush is capable of cleaning all floor surfaces whether it be wood, tiles or rugs. Like every other Miele, it also has an adjustable floorhead combined with a variable suction that can be changed using the rotary dial for either hard floors or deep pile carpets.

The on and off switch on the handle of the hose enables its users to switch from the electric beater to a floor brush. In case you are worried about your floor being scratched, this device does not scratch floors and you can turn off the roller brush while moving from room to room. The 64 inches hose is detachable and it also comes with an instant cord rewinder which retracts the cord back into the vacuum at the touch of a button in seconds.


This article will not be comprehensive without mentioning a few drawbacks to look out for when thinking of investing in this device. Luckily for you, this device has only one drawback and that is the absence of light on the electro floorhead for use in dark areas or at night. This can be resolved with the use of other light sources.

Final thoughts

On a final note of this Miele Compact C2 Electro+ review, we believe that this canister vacuum is unique and was specially made to outrun the shortcomings of some other models of vacuum cleaners manufactured by Miele. We acknowledge that it is a great fit for every home and offers optimum cleaning results. So if you’re looking for an all-round, multifunctional, special vacuum cleaner, then this product is worth a try.
