The Miele S7210 has been welcomed by many users who were looking for a high performance, reliable cleaner that was effective at removing all dirt completely, including pet hairs. The Miele vacuum’s powerful 1800 watt German motor is a big selling point and is characteristic of the Miele brand. So is the ergonomic design, also German, which is acclaimed because of the convenience and ease of use it provides.
Unlike most upright cleaners, the Miele Twist Upright Vacuum is not bagless. This feature is regarded as a downside by some, but as an advantage by others. Many users dislike the process of emptying a bagless cleaner, which can risk scattering the dust and dirt back where it came from.
The dustbag on the Miele S7210 is not only very large, so needs changing less often, but also provides extra filtration, in addition to the powerful Air Clean filter on the unit. The bag also has an automatic self-closing neck, so that it is instantly sealed as soon as the compartment lid is opened.
The Miele S7210 has a number of unique features that are particularly applauded by users. First and foremost is the “twist aspect” the swivel head coupled with 360 degree casters, which make it exceptionally easy to maneuver around furniture, and even under it.
Additional unique features of the Miele S7210 include the height-adjustable two part telescopic tube, made of aluminum, which is added to the built in stick attachment at the side for reaching up to high corners, and the locking mechanism for the hose at the rear of the unit, making it resistant to tipping over when the hose is pulled out.
The hose itself is 39 feet long, which means the cleaner can stay where it is while cleaning is going on, instead of having to be constantly unplugged and plugged back in again. Other features of the Miele S7210 which make users very happy are the exceptional quietness of the unit ” which does not wake the baby ” and the carrying handle at the back, which allows it to be carried up and down stairs very easily.
Of course, the most important feature of any cleaner is its cleaning performance, and the Miele S7210 is very highly praised for its superb results. It does indeed deal with everything including pet hairs, and all other types of food and household detritus. The outstandingly powerful suction of the Miele S7210 is largely due to the spring loaded electrobrush, which separates carpet fibers to allow the Miele vacuum to extract the fine dust from the deep recesses of the carpet. The rotary dial at the top of the Miele S7210 enables the electrobrush to be set to adapt to any type of surface.
There are one or two aspects of the Miele S7210 that users are less keen on. Almost everyone complains about how heavy the cleaner is, and this is a drawback especially for older users or those with restricted mobility.
Another downside of the Miele S7210 which has been noted is that the height adjustment is not automatic as in other cleaners in that price range” that is, when moving to different heights, such as on and off carpets, or on to additional rugs on top of carpets, it is necessary to step on a pedal for it to adjust. Of course, this would only be a problem for people who were previously used to the automatic adjustment.
These quibbles really seem minor in comparison with the truly outstanding quality of the Miele S7210. The manufacturers appear to have thought of everything to make cleaning round the house as effortless and painless as possible ” except perhaps that they could have made it a bit more lightweight. The Miele S7210 is a luxury model at the high end of the price range, but it has won a lot of fans, who clearly think it justifies the cost.
