Miele has been designing and manufacturing products for the home since 1899. They produced their first vacuum cleaner in 1927. Their products are world renowned for their power, durability and performance. Sitting elegantly among their compact vacuum cleaners is the Miele S251i Flamenco II Canister with its deep red finish accented in black. It is not just a canister vacuum cleaner with great air flow but also provides air powered brushing action with its Turbobrush for enhanced carpet cleaning. 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 Flamenco II on its looks alone.
The Miele S251i Flamenco II canister comes complete with the Miele STB 205 Turbobrush for deep cleaning low or medium nap carpets. It incorporates a turbine to obtain its power to drive the 10 1/2" wide revolving brush roll from the air flow passing through the system. By doing so, it is drawing power from the main suction motor, actually reducing the air flow through the system. A cog type belt is used to provide positive power transfer from the turbine to the brush roll. Since this nozzle does not require electric to operate, it can be used on the standard non-electric hose.
This Miele Flamenco II is designed for those with limited amounts of carpeted floors who can't justify the higher cost of a vacuum with a motorized power nozzle. For those desiring a similar vacuum with motorized powerbrush, consider the Miele Plus power team. The motorized powerbrush on the Miele Plus actually adds about 10% more power to the system instead of drawing its power from the air flow as on the Flamenco II.
The powerful 1200 Watt, Miele Vortex suction motor produces plenty of suction for cleaning low to medium nap carpeted floors when used with the STB 205 Turbobrush. 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 S251i Flamenco II will perform quietly for many years. Due to its typical life expectancy of 1200 hours, Miele proudly warranties this motor for seven years. To learn more about this outstanding motor, see our article on the Powerful Miele Vortex Motor.
This Miele S251i Flamenco II is also equipped with an electronic motor speed control which adjusts the air flow up to 130 CFM, giving you complete control when you clean. The speed control dial, with an infinite number of settings, enables you to select the proper amount of power for cleaning anything from draperies to medium height carpets. Reducing the suction prevents curtains, upholstery or area rugs from inadvertently being drawn into the cleaning nozzle.
The Miele S251i Flamenco II uses a multi-layer filtration system which increases the life of the high filtration exhaust filter. The air passes through a triple layer dustbag and a secondary electrostatic filter before reaching the Super Air Clean 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.
In a study conducted by the Department of Medicine, Division of Allergy and Clinical Immunology at the University of Virginia, the Miele vacuum cleaner with Super Air Clean filter was tested, along with eight other leading brands, to determine if vacuum cleaner efficiency affects the level of airborne allergens commonly found in the home, such as pet dander and dust mite feces. The results indicate that some vacuum cleaners substantially increase allergens in the air. The study proved Miele captures virtually all the dust, dirt and allergens you pick up, improving the quality of the air you breathe.
Using the Miele S251i Flamenco II differs from your typical home vacuum cleaner because of its special Super Air Clean exhaust filter and completely sealed system. This means that the extremely fine 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.
Miele's revolutionary new IntensiveClean Plus dustbag offers unbeatable advantages which really enhance the performance of the Miele S251i Flamenco II. First and foremost, the unique new material which composes IntensiveClean Plus 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 IntensiveClean Plus 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.
The Flamenco II comes with their standard hose which can swivel freely for 360 degrees, enabling you to work conveniently near the machine. This feature also reduces sideways stresses on the hose which can significantly shorten its life span, causing it to tear prematurely. The hose itself is designed to be crush resistant for longer wear as well.
The Flamenco II is designed to track nicely behind you as you pull it by the hose. It is equipped with three wheels which turn a full 360 degrees making it 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.
The Miele S251i Flamenco II carries the upholstery nozzle and crevice tool conveniently tucked away in the covered tool storage on the main unit where they are always easily accessible. This design reduces the risk of bumping these attachments, accidentally knocking them from the vacuum cleaner. The Flamenco II also includes a dusting brush but it is not carried in the covered tool storage.
Miele provides a year of peace of mind, knowing that you will not have the expense of a repair which is covered by their standard One Year Limited Warranty. In addition to this, the Miele Seven Year Limited Motor Warranty provides six additional years of peace of mind, knowing that you will not have the expense of a suction motor repair which is covered by this warranty. These limited warranties are reduced to six months if the vacuum cleaner is used for commercial purposes.
