If you’re looking for one vacuum to last you a lifetime, one choice stands clear of the competitors. Miele. Their C-class range of bagged, canister vacuums are best in class. A lifetime guarantee is impossible to come by for appliances of this type, but Miele comes top for performance and build quality. It’s the top choice for vacuum repair technicians, known for its reliability and fixability.
A canister, bagged vacuum may seem old-fashioned compared to the bagless, sleek upright machines that you'll see across most department store shelves. However, a bagless machine will require a good deal more upkeep to keep it in shape, and is more likely to get clogged with filth.
Performance is much stronger and more consistent when you go for a bagged vacuum - and that more than makes up for the “waste” added by a vacuum bag. Miele makes the best vacuum filters around, and their machines really suck. For those of you with pets, you need look no further. A tidy up with a Miele and allergic friends will step into your house without ever reaching for a tissue.
