The Alize is best suited for homes with hardwood floors and low-pile area rugs; not for plush carpeting.

The C3 series embodies 85 years of Miele technical expertise and know-how. The C3 canister vacuums are lighter, quieter and offer improved cleaning performance. They improve upon the user-friendly features of the C2 series with an enhanced design and extra luxury perks. The C3 series is expertly designed and engineered to maximize the users' vacuuming experience. The Complete C3 Alize is Miele's most energy efficient vacuum featuring a straight suction, non-electric configuration.

Pluses:

  • Unmatched filtration system. Our testing showed it exhausts 0 particles back into the room!
  • Bright LED spot light on the operating handle illuminates the area you are cleaning - great for dark corners. The spot light uses 3 AAA batteries that are included.
  • Automatic suction setting for hassle free vacuuming. The automatic suction setting will adjust the vacuum's 6-level suction on its own to match the surface being cleaned.
  • LED panel on the canister displays what suction setting you are on.
  • Unbelievably quiet vacuuming - 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.
  • Park the floor tool in the rear spot and the vacuum pauses (standby mode) until you remove the floor tool and the vacuum will resume power.
  • 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.
  • Beyond easy to maintain. Filter and bag change indicators ensure you are changing the bag or filter only when necessary.
  • A cinch to assemble and change floor tools, use an accessory tool, or remove the wand.
  • AirTeQ combination floor tool has very strong suction and works better than your average combination floor. Though it does not glide easily on carpets or rugs, it does stay in contact with the floor at all times, unlike many of the other combination floor tools we have tested.
  • Beautifully designed with a neutral ivory white color.
  • 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:

  • Combination floor tool does not move easily on rugs/carpets and will not work on plush or high-pile carpets.
  • The included non-electric wand and hose will not work with a Miele Electro power brush. This vacuum does have a built-in option to accommodate an electric wand & hose should your future cleaning needs change.

Summary:

The Complete C3 Alize is a great vacuum cleaner for a home that has mostly hardwood or tiled floors and a few delicate or thin area rugs. It is also ideal for someone who prefers to vacuum using only one floor tool. It is convenient and simple to use, especially when on the automatic setting that intelligently adjusts suction power to best suite the floor type. The Miele Alize has plenty of power, yet is extremely energy efficient thanks to its non-electric configuration and straight suction floor tool. The AirTeQ combination floor tool is adequate, however, it limits the Alize's cleaning ability because it is difficult to move on carpets nor will it effectively clean plush rugs or high-pile carpets. If you or a family member suffers from allergies, you can not beat Miele's filtration system which keeps your indoor air fresh and clean.
