18 November 2015

The Miele Classic C1 Junior PowerLine fails to impress at even a basic level as a result of too many niggling issues. Spending a little more will make all the difference...

Fairly lightweight
Good onboard tool storage
Excellent HyClean bags
Good edge cleaning
Floorhead sticks down on full power
Poor pickup on lower power settings
Poor pet hair carpet cleaning
Short cable and hose limits reach
Wheels struggle on deep carpet
