I actually look forward to vacuuming with this Miele Capricorn!
Tough guy to please!, Amazon
23 May 2015
Summary: I own the newer black version of this Miele Capricorn vacuum and I love it! This is my third Miele canister vacuum and the only reason I have owned 3 is that I keep upgrading to get more features and this one is the top of the line with all the bells and whistles!
Summary: It works ok on carpet, doesn't suck up the small crumbs on hard wood floors. After a few months it started shutting itself off every 5 or 10 minutes. Looked online and found others having the same problems. Something about a circuit board in the handle getting zapped.
Miele CAPRICORN in the smoothest ,best handling vacuum we sell
13 February 2011
Excerpt: We sell 30 plus vacuums a month in our Virginia Beach store and by far the easiest to pull around and handle is the Miele. The Simplicity is more powerfull, but if you dont have wall to wall carpet and a lot of pets you cannot go wrong with the Capricorn.
Excerpt: I bought this vacuum at the suggestion of my daughter's allergist. At first, I thought the price was way too much, regardless of what the vacuum promised to do. However, after using it for several months, I can't say enough!
Summary: I loved all aspect of the vacuum machine except overheat problem. Whenever I used it, it lasted only about 15 min and overheated and then stopped. So I returned this machine to Amazon. I am gonna buy a new one from a local store to see if the problem occurs again.
Excerpt: When my insurance company began quizzing me about the value of my home furnishings during a policy update, I swear to you that my Miele vacuum was one of the first items that popped into my head.
Easy on the Back with the Added Bonus of Being Quiet...
28 January 2010
Summary: As I approach the "new 40," I am discovering my lower back does not handle using an upright vacuum as painlessly as it formerly did. For the past two years, I have researched and read in an attempt to find a canister vacuum which I might actually like and which would not cause my lower back to ache.
Summary: This is a very sturdy machine. It is quiet, works hard. Range of motion is the best. SEB-236 power brush head is superb but a little heavy for a person who has arthritis (me). I like it very much. The power cord is a little shorter than expected.
Summary: I sincerley love, love, love this vaccum! We have several pets and I vaccum every-other day. We have had this vaccum for 3 1/2 years. Just a couple of problems have developed after massive use.
Summary: I just purchased the Miele Capricorn from an authorized Miele dealer. As mentioned by others, I hesitated about spending an insane amount of money on a vacuum cleaner, but I had a Miele Orion (retired model) for over 10 years and I really wanted another "quality" vacuum.
