As we all know, Miele is one of the leaders when it comes to the vacuum cleaners market. After all, the origins of this company go all the way back to 1927! Over the years, they continued to produce high-quality devices. One such model is the Miele Complete C2 hard floor vacuum. For that reason, our Miele Complete C2 review will cover all important elements of this particular household device.

Miele Complete C2 review

Lightweight and maneuverable

As we go through our Miele Complete C2 review, you will notice that this particular device is built to last. The well-known German quality is once again providing the users with a durable vacuum.

With that being said, it comes as a bit of a surprise to see that Miele Complete C2 weighs only 19.5 lbs. In other words, this model is lightweight and that is why it provides effortless cleaning. Even though the guys over at Miele have used premium materials, the Miele Complete C2 limited edition is compact and easy to use. Because of the improved maneuverability, you will be able to carry the vacuum around without any problems whatsoever.

Moreover, Miele Complete C2 comes equipped with a set of rubber wheels. Those three wheels further enhance the mobility of the device. Needless to say, the wheels can rotate in 360 degrees, offering great maneuverability on hard floors. At the same time, the wheels are gentle, and they will not scratch or damage sensitive flooring.

Aesthetics and functionality

Due to its compact design, Miele Complete C2 is aesthetically pleasing as well. In short, this particular canister vacuum comes with a sleek and modern design. All the shapes and lines are symmetrical and creative. In fact, the majority of Miele Complete C2 reviews are giving the thumbs up for the design of this vacuum. Whether you pick the Mango Red color or the Topaz Blue, you will have a nice-looking device in your household if you decide to buy the C2 Complete.

Since many features of this device are boosting its visual appeal and usability, let’s mention a few of them. For instance, the cord of this vacuum comes with automatic rewind. In other words, the cable will go into the body of the vacuum after you finish the cleaning session. This one-touch system enhances the functionality of the Miele Complete C2 because it saves storage space. Not to mention the convenience of automatic rewind during the cleaning process itself.

Also, Miele Complete C2 limited edition comes with integrated tool storage. What this means is that the attachments for this model can be stored on-board the vacuum. By doing so, you will not lose the tools and they will always be at your disposal.

All in all, Miele Complete C2 is a well-designed canister vacuum. Even so, there is more than meets the eye with this device. Thus, let’s take a look under the hood and check the power of this Miele vacuum.

Adjustable suction power

Miele Complete C2

Like many other models from the German manufacturer, the Miele Complete C2 hard floor vacuum comes with a Vortex motor. In this case, the motor creates 1200W of power or 9.5 Amps. According to the majority of Miele Complete C2 reviews, 1200W seems to offer more than enough suction for efficient cleaning.

Moreover, Miele Complete C2 comes equipped with a 6-stage cleaning system. To clarify, you will notice a rotary dial on the front part of the vacuum. Well, this dial has six settings. In a way, those six levels represent six different operating modes. So, by turning the dial you can change the level of suction. For example, the Drapes mode needs much less suction than the mode designed for cleaning large area rugs.

Also, the Miele Complete C2 offers the option of using the Quiet mode. As the name suggests, this setting reduces the noise level of the device. Thus, it will allow you to vacuum the floors while your loved ones are sleeping in the other room. When it comes to the noise level, this particular Miele model is not too loud as it is. On average, it creates 57 decibels, which is within the industry standard for this type of vacuum cleaners.

Air-tight filtration system

Suction power and cleaning performances are very important when it comes to having a good vacuum cleaner. Likewise, the quality of the filtration system is important as well. For that reason, Miele has equipped its Complete C2 model with an excellent set of filters.

So, the so-called AirClean Sealed system is a proprietary Miele technology. As the name says, this system will provide you with clean air, free of allergens and dust. Moreover, the air will not ‘leak’ anywhere, and that is why this technology offers superb results. By integrating three layers of filters, the guys at Miele made sure that the air gets thoroughly cleaned before it’s released back into your home. Needless to say, this is great news for homeowners who are suffering from allergy attacks.

In addition, the exhaust filter is a SAC 20/30. On top of that, it is possible to upgrade this device to HEPA filtration standards. In other words, Miele Complete C2 limited edition does not come with HEPA filters. Yet, they can be added later on. Of course, HEPA standards ensure that 99,9% of debris and allergens get trapped inside the vacuum cleaner.

When it comes to the quality of the bag, the Miele Complete C2 vacuum cleaner relies on the so-called GN bags. These bags are made out of 9-ply material, which ensures durability and longevity. Also, a convenient indicator light will let you know when the bag is full and needs emptying. Since the bags are equipped with an auto-seal collar, you should not have problems with big clouds of dust in your home. On the contrary, GN bags are easy to remove and clean. The capacity of the bag with Miele Complete C2 is 4,75 quarts. Thus, you should be able to clean your home a couple of times before the indicator light warns you about emptying the dust bag.

Decent cleaning performances

To check the performances of the Miele Complete C2 limited edition canister vacuum, we had to put the device through the test. And, the results were decent, to say the least. Better said, they were in the line with what you would expect from a Miele vacuum. In other words, this canister vacuum cleaner is great for cleaning hard floors. So, we recommend using it on laminated or wooden flooring.

At the same time, Miele Complete C2 hard floor vacuum can offer decent performances on low pile carpets as well. The reason for this is simple, and it hides in the fact that Miele provides two cleaning heads for this model. So, you will receive one cleaning head for hard floors and the other one for rugs and other types of flooring.

To be precise, the SBB400-3 Parquet Twister XL is a cleaning head that provides improved agility on hard floors. Because of its swivel feature, the extra-wide head can rotate and glide around the furniture. On top of that, this attachment will cover more ground at one stroke since the width of the cleaning head is 16”.

On the other hand, the SBD 285-3 Combo Floor Tool is a cleaning head that adds versatility to the Miele Complete C2 vacuum cleaner. In short, this cleaning head comes with a height adjustment system. By pressing the button on the top, you can switch between the two modes. That is, the button will extend or retract the bristles.

Even though this cleaning head is not motorized, it can still offer quick and effective cleaning of your carpets and rugs. However, pet owners could experience some issues with this type of cleaning head. As such, Miele Complete C2 is not a model we will recommend for homeowners who have cats or dogs running around.

Ease of use and functionality

Besides being engineered to last, Miele Complete C2 is also built for effortless cleaning. One of the main reasons for this comes from the compact body of the device. We already said that this model is lightweight, which means that you can carry it upstairs without any difficulty. Also, the Miele Complete C2 vacuum cleaner has an ergonomic design. Above all, the handle of the device will allow you to maneuver the vacuum with ease.

When it comes to the functionality of this particular model, it is important to mention the operating radius of 33 feet. To clarify, the length of the cord is 21 feet, and the rest goes to the hose and the telescopic wand. Speaking of the wand, this component is built from stainless steel. And, you can adjust the length of the tube in a simple and straightforward way. All in all, the Miele Complete C2 vacuum offers a decent cleaning range. In most cases, homeowners should be able to vacuum their homes without the need to unplug the device too many times.

Tools and accessories

Speaking of attachments, the Miele Complete C2 hard floor canister vacuum cleaner comes with a convenient set of tools. To clarify, three different cleaning tools are available with this model:

  • Upholstery tool
  • Crevice tool
  • Dust brush

As we all know, vacuuming can turn into a frustrating activity if we have to deal with a lot of hard-to-reach places. For that reason, Miele provides you with all the accessories you could ever need.

Moreover, the tools are safely stored in a compartment on the body of the device. As we already mentioned, this convenient little feature is a life-saver when it comes to not losing the tools. Without this storage, you would surely misplace the gadgets sooner or later, which would again add to the frustration. Instead, you can always put the accessories back in the integrated storage and go on with your day.

Final thoughts

With everything we covered in our Miele Complete C2 review, it is easy to see that this model offers great value for money. Due to its versatile cleaning heads, Miele Complete C2 is a vacuum that can clean both hard floors and carpets. On top of that, the well-known Vortex motor provides the devices with decent suction power.
