Miele Vacuum Cleaner Reviews, Part I: Miele Vacuum Standards

Miele Vacuum Standards: Higher Than the Competition

Miele Vacuums have always held themselves to higher standards of quality since their first productions of Miele Vacuum Cleaners in 1927. When Miele adopted the slogan “Immer Besser” or in English “forever better” -- they meant it. Miele Vacuums are built to last on average between 15 and 20 years. Whether it be the entry level Olympus or the top of the line Brilliant, you know you are getting a quality product.

The Drop Test

All models go through a vigorous testing process to make sure that all functions are working on your new Miele Vacuum and that they continue to work over the entire lifespan of the unit. The Miele U1 Upright Vacuums have been engineered to withstand what Miele calls a “drop test”. In this drop test, the vacuum is picked up and dropped from a height that may occur while vacuuming a whooping 10,000 times. After 10,000 drops the vacuum must then perform its duty as well as it would on day one out of the box.

The Cord Durability Test

Electrical problems with cords are very common on many vacuums -- and one of the most dangerous aspects of vacuuming. Because of this, another test performed on Miele Vacuums is a cord durability test. In this test a weight is attached to the vacuum cord. It's then swung back and forth for an *unbelievable* 100,000 times. During this time the vacuum must maintain a full current of electricity and present no danger to the user. With Miele vacuums, danger due to electrical problems is never something its users will have to worry about.

These are just a couple of the tests that are performed on Miele Vacuums. The reason behind running these rigorous tests is very clear: they want to provide their customers with a top-of-the-line product that will continue to work for years and years to come. Miele takes pride in the lifespan and performance of their vacuums. They stand by them with industry-leading warranties, making the cost of owning a Miele Vacuum one of the most affordable on the market.
