Description of Miele Complete C3 Calima Vacuum Cleaner


The Miele Complete C3 Calima is the introductory model of the Miele C3 vacuum series and the replacement for the popular Miele S5 Pisces. Though the Miele Calima is an introductory model, it is still a superior canister vacuum cleaner featuring ultra-quiet operation, unparalleled performance and lightweight yet durable construction. In addition to the vacuum's outstanding performance and user convenience, nothing can beat Miele's exclusive 12-stage AirClean HEPA Sealed System™ that retains 99.9% of dirt, dust and lung damaging particles inside the machine. The Miele Calima is the ideal vacuum cleaner for homes with hard floors and low to medium pile area rugs. It comes packaged with a Turbo brush, Parquet Twister floor brush and three integrated accessory tools.

In true spirit of the Miele slogan "Immer Besser", Miele produced a vacuum cleaner series that has "no compromises". The C3 series is lighter, quieter and offers improved cleaning performance. The C3 vacuums improve upon the user-friendly features of the C2 series with an enhanced design and extra perks. The C3 series is expertly designed and engineered to maximize the users' vacuuming experience. The Miele Calima is the introductory model of the C3 series and the replacement for the popular Miele S5 Pisces.

Pluses:

  • Unmatched filtration system. Our testing showed this vacuum exhausts 0 particles back into the room!
  • Easy to use +/- suction adjustment controls on canister. The controls are designed so they can be adjusted with your foot or by hand.
  • LED panel on the canister displays what suction setting you are on.
  • One of our quietest vacuums - even on the highest suction setting.
  • Very lightweight (impressively so for it size) and easy to carry.
  • Impressive maneuverability. It pulls along without resistance and every necessary part swivels or turns to the point you forget the struggles a typical vacuum cleaner gives you as you move from room to room.
  • The air driven turbo brush is more gentle on carpets and rugs than a motorized power brush. It offers brush roll agitation powered by the air flow of the vacuum to help lift dirt for a clean finish. This tool works best on low or cut-pile carpet or rugs and does a better job at removing dirt and hair than a combination carpet/floor tool.
  • The Parquet Twister floor brush has an improved swivel design which is most helpful when cleaning around and under furniture. The Parquet floor brush has been redesigned with shorter natural bristles and spaces between the bristle sections to provide maximum suction and longer life.
  • 33-foot cleaning radius allows you to clean a large area without having to change power outlets.
  • The cord rewind button only requires a single touch and the entire cord will retract.
  • The G/N AirClean filter bags hold a lot of debris and are the best quality bags we have tested.
  • This vacuum is very easy to assemble and change floor tools, use an accessory tool, or remove the wand.
  • Beautifully designed with a bright canary yellow finish.
  • Rubber bumper guard will protect against scuffs and scratches.
  • Unmatched quality and reliability.
  • Good Housekeeping Seal of approval covers defects on this vacuum cleaner for a period of two years.

Minuses:

  • No filter change indicator.
  • No automatic suction setting.
  • No deluxe operating handle.
  • The air-driven brush roller of the turbo brush is not powerful enough to deep clean thick carpets and will not work on high-pile carpet.
  • The non-electric wand and hose configuration that comes with the Calima will not work with a Miele power brush. In order to upgrade this vacuum to use a power brush you will need to buy an electric wand and hose.
  • The crevice tool has a short reach. For a longer crevice tool we offer the Miele Extended Flexible Crevice Tool #SFD 20 (available for purchase in the accessory section of this page).

Summary:

The Miele Complete C3 Calima represents a very good value for the price. It is packaged with a turbo brush as its carpet tool, parquet floor tool for bare floors and 3 accessory tools. Though the turbo brush does not have the deep and restorative carpet cleaning power of a motorized power brush, it offers very good performance and effectiveness on low-pile or cut-pile carpet. A canister vacuum with a turbo brush instead of a power brush is a great alternative choice for someone who does not necessarily need a power brush and is looking for a more affordable vacuum cleaner. We feel the Miele Calima is the perfect vacuum cleaning package for households with hardwood floors and low or cut-pile area rugs.
