Miele Classic C1 Pure Suction HomeCare Vacuum Cleaner Introduction

Miele - Made in Germany

Miele has been designing and manufacturing products for the home since 1899. They produced their first vacuum cleaner in 1927 and celebrated their 100th Anniversary in June of 1999. Their products are world renowned for their power, durability and performance. The introduction of the Miele Pure Suction HomeCare vacuum, with its beautiful Autumn Red finish, reflects their commitment to designing and manufacturing outstanding vacuum cleaners. As with all Miele products, all its advanced technology and incredible power is harnessed within a truly beautiful work of art. You may even be tempted to purchase a Miele Pure Suction HomeCare vacuum cleaner on its looks alone. It is part of the new Miele Classic C1 Series of canister vacuum cleaners which make owning a Miele canister vacuum even more affordable.

Multi-Layer Filtration System

The Miele Classic C1 Pure Suction HomeCare vacuum cleaner uses a multi-layer filtration system which increases the life of the high filtration exhaust filter. The air passes through their high filtration 3-Layer AirClean Bag and a secondary electrostatic filter before reaching the special exhaust filter. Each layer of filtration captures more particles as the air passes through them. Ideally, multi-layer filtration enhances performance by ensuring good air flow through the system. It prevents large particles from reaching and blocking the exhaust filter, saving it for critical particle retention.

The Miele Classic C1 Pure Suction HomeCare vacuums come equipped with their HEPA AirClean Exhaust Filter for exceptional allergen filtration. A lower cost alternative is the Super AirClean exhaust filter which is packaged with the dustbags. It is designed for those desiring good filtration but who do not have dust related sensitivities which require the level of filtration which meets the stringent HEPA 13 specification.

High Efficiency Filtration

Using the Miele Classic C1 Pure Suction HomeCare canister vacuum differs from your typical home vacuum cleaner because of its special high filtration capabilities built into its system. The Miele Pure Suction HomeCare vacuum is carefully designed so the sub-micrometer dust you pick up actually reaches the high filtration exhaust filter and is not blown out through minute cracks in the case or around the exhaust filter like many competing cleaners with high filtration exhaust filters. To protect you even more the dustbag is designed to automatically close its opening when you open the vacuum to remove it for disposal.

Vacuum cleaners are designed so that air flows through the nozzle and hose into the dustbag, and then through any additional filters before leaving the machine at the exhaust. Filters capable of achieving sub-micrometer filtration are important but equally important is how much of the air flow containing these allergens, etc. actually passes through the filters to be cleaned by them. With the Miele Pure Suction HomeCare vacuum you can rest assured that all the air flow passes through and is filtered by the HEPA AirClean or optional Super AirClean and Active AirClean exhaust filters.

High Performance AirClean™ Dustbag

Miele GN AirClean Dustbag

Miele's revolutionary new AirClean™ dustbag offers unbeatable advantages which really enhance the performance of the Miele Pure Suction HomeCare canister vacuum cleaner. First and foremost, the unique new material which composes AirClean dustbags has made significant progress in the quality of filtration: Thanks to its intricate web of three-ply random-spun polymer fibers, far more tiny particles and allergens are retained than with conventional dustbags. This alone accounts for a reduction in dust emissions from the dustbag of up to 50%, based on levels which were already extremely low. Therefore, this vacuum's secondary filter and high efficiency exhaust filter will be kept cleaner, providing outstanding cleaning performance with reduced resistance to the air flow.

The enhanced composition of AirClean virtually eliminates clogging, improving cleaning performance even further. This material captures millions of tiny dust particles and holds them tight within its fibers, keeping the pores of the dustbag open longer. As a result, this Miele vacuum cleaner retains its excellent cleaning performance, even when the dustbag is full. This special polymer material also makes the dustbag practically tear-proof. The risk of damage caused by sharp, pointed objects in the bag is now a thing of the past.

Efficient Miele Vortex Suction Motor

Miele Vortex Motor Fan

The powerful 1200 Watt, Miele Vortex suction motor produces plenty of suction for cleaning your home. This high performance motor has fan parts that are aerodynamically designed with no parallel surfaces and nine long fan scoops compared to the typical six shorter ones. These scoops are quite wide near the hub of the fan and become more narrow toward the outer edge similar to that of a jet engine compressor. This single stage "compressor design" optimizes the air flow and increases the overall motor efficiency. Featuring lifetime lubricated ball bearings, well balanced motor parts, enhanced motor suspension and lining of the motor housing, the Miele Olypmus vacuum will perform quietly for many years. To learn more about this outstanding motor, see our article on the Powerful Miele Vortex Motor.

Electronic Motor Speed Control

The Classic C1 Pure Suction HomeCare vacuum is also equipped with six different motor speed settings which adjusts the air flow, giving you complete control when you clean. The electronic speed control dial on the vacuum enables you to easily select the proper amount of power for cleaning anything from draperies to medium height carpeting. Reducing the suction prevents curtains, upholstery or area rugs from inadvertently being drawn into the cleaning nozzle.

Option to Upgrade to the Deluxe Hose Handle

Standard and Deluxe Hose Handles

When purchasing your new Miele Pure Suction HomeCare vacuum from Ristenbatt Vacuum, make it even more user friendly by upgrading to Miele's Deluxe Hose Handle. The thinner handle located above the hose makes it easier to hold, especially for smaller hands. Its soft top grip and the way it lays nicely in your hand make it even more comfortable. With the hose attached closer to the wand or cleaning nozzle this Deluxe Hose Handle provides superior flexability which you'll really appreciate when working in fairly tight areas. A slight swivel built into the handle enhances its maneuverability as well.

The special upgrade price of $44.95 is only available at the time when you purchase this vacuum. Check this option's box on the vacuum cleaner's order form to receive the special upgrade price. If purchased separately the Deluxe Hose Handle would sell for $79.95.

Combination Rug/Bare Floor Nozzle

View of SBD 365-3 Combination Nozzle

The Miele Classic C1 Pure Suction HomeCare canister is packaged with the SBD 365-3 Combination Rug/Bare Floor Nozzle which can be used on bare floors as well as low nap carpets. If you have a lot of non-carpeted floors you may wish to purchase the optional SBB 300-3 Parquet Twister Floor Brush which is even nicer with its long, soft bristles.

This deluxe combination tool has a top mounted lever to switch between carpets and bare floors. For bare floors brush strips along the front and back pop out to provide non-scratching brushing action. Notches along the front allow dirt to easily enter the nozzle. For carpets and rugs, the brush strip can be recessed, allowing the channeled sole plate to contact the carpet, pulling air through the nap to clean it. The elbow has a long tab which holds this nozzle securely in the parking slots on the sides and back of this vacuum.

Included Special Purpose Attachments

All Miele HomeCare vacuum cleaners provide extra value over their standard models. Part of this on their canisters with powerbrushes is the inclusion of their 22" Flexible Crevice Tool #SFD 20 and Universal Dusting Brush w/Swivel #SUB 20 to enhance their performance and convenience.

Flexible Crevice Tool

The extra-long Miele 22" Flexible Crevice Tool is designed for use on Miele hoses and wands. The unique construction consists of a long soft vinyl center section with rigid high impact ends, making it quite durable yet flexible. This crevice tool is great for reaching under refrigerators and car seats, behind old fashioned radiators and other hard to reach areas. An optional SHB 20 Radiator Brush can be attached to the end for even greater performance.

Extra Large Universal Dusting Brush

The Miele Universal Dusting Brush with Swivel is great for cleaning all hard surfaces including ledges and cabinet tops. It is great for cleaning both the tops and bottoms of ceiling fans. Its long sleek design enables it to cover larger areas with a sideways sweeping motion. The tapered area with bristles is 2" wide and 6" long with 7/8" long, soft bristles. The main body is flexible vinyl so it is like having a bumper all over it to protect your furniture.

Versatile Stainless Steel Telescopic Wand

The stainless steel telescopic wand on the Miele Classic C1 Pure Suction HomeCare vacuum cleaners can be adjusted to match your individual stature. For storage, it collapses to about half height to save storage space. It is well sealed at all joints to maintain Miele's outstanding performance. This is a good example of how Miele goes to great lengths, even with small details, to ensure the quality, performance and beauty of their products.

Convenient Snap-on Attachment Storage

Miele Small Attachments on Hose Clip

The Miele Classic C1 Pure Suction HomeCare vacuum carries its three small attachments on a snap-on VarioClip™ that can be attached to the hose either at the vacuum or up near the hose handle. The dusting brush has soft bristles to protect your hard furniture while the upholstery nozzle has two red strips which are like the "magic lint brushes", capturing the lint, hairs and threads and then cleaning themselves on the reverse stroke as you clean your soft upholstered furniture. Also included is a crevice tool for reaching into those tight corners.

All Three Wheels Swivel 360°

The Miele Pure Suction HomeCare vacuum cleaners are designed to track nicely behind you as you pull them by the hose. They are equipped with three wheels which turn a full 360° making them very easy to maneuver and very stable. Going over electrical cords, door thresholds and around furniture is a breeze. Since it can be moved in any direction, being able to easily push it out of your path when working near the machine is an added convenience.
