As an asthmatic owner of 2 dogs in an 80 year old farmhouse on a working farm, I can gladly say this vacuum exceeded my expectations and was completely worth the price. We are constantly fighting dust, dirt, and dog hair, but with my Capri, it takes half the time to vacuum as with my old vacuum, and it gets EVERYTHING.

We love our new vacuum! The design is compact and light, so it is easy to pull around the house. The suction is very good. We read reviews on this machine and our decision was based on one person saying how well it worked on dog hair. We agree! We have a dog with long hair and it does a great job. We do not have carpet, but area rugs and wood floors. The attachments work great and our home smells fresh and clean. The best part is that it is so quiet. Our last vacuum was very loud and the dog would go nuts. Now she will keep napping. We have only had this vacuum for a month or so. The one problem is the length of the cord. As with most vacuums it could be longer.

I'm so happy with my miele Capri canister. I have 2 little kids, so there is quick a lot of mess. The capri works so good on hardwood and carpet, it is realy a good buy. The quality is what makes it a real good deal. Because you know this vacuum cleaner will last for long time.
Customer Q & A
Q1: Does the Miele Capri canister have wheels? Can't tell by the photo if it rolls along or if I have to carry it. Thx.
A: All Miele caniser vacuum cleaners, including the Capri, comes with 3 swiveling casters.
Q2: In addition to the control dial on the canister, does the Capri have a sliding "window" on the handle to adjust suction?
A: Yes. Like other Miele canister vacuums with the standard handle, the Miele Capri does have the air inlet valve that quickly allows air into the handle and reduces suction to the floor tool.
Q3: What is the least expensive vacuum that will perform excellently on hi pile dense wall to wall carpet?
A: If you want to stick with the Miele brand, the least expensive models for dense carpet are the Miele Twist and Miele Delphi. The Twist has enough suction to handle all types of carpet and you can turn the brushroll off for straight suction on smooth flooring. The Delphi also has an electrically driven powerhead that will handle all types of carpet fairly well. You can upgrade the powerhead to the SEB 228. This attachment is nearly identical to the SEB 236 except it has lacks the LED headlamp.

Miele Capri Classic C1 Vacuum Cleaner
With the Miele Olympus being the entry level vacuum of the entire Miele canister vacuum cleaner line up, the Miele Capri is the next step up. With the
SBB3 floor tool and the air driven STB 205-3, the Miele Capri vacuum broadens the range of surfaces it can clean and gives you the ability
to handle all of your smooth flooring as well as medium to low pile carpet and area rugs. In most all other features, the Miele Capri
retains the features that have quickly made the Miele Classic vacuum cleaners extremely popular - powerful suction, durable construction, and
unmatched versatility, all at a budget-friendly price point. After running a sample model through our usual array of
tests, this is what we found.
What I like about the Miele Capri C1 Vac
Likely the best feature about this vacuum is the price. There is just no way around it. In the Capri you get a quality Miele canister
vacuum cleaner, tested to last 20 years, for less than $400. In terms of price, the only
canister that can surpass it is the Olympus. But with the Olympus, you lose the important feature I am about to mention next.
The STB 205-3 Turbobrush is a worthy upgrade from the combination floor tool. It is much more easily able to take care of pet hair and
dirt in low pile and even medium pile carpet. And, the floor tool is ideal for all of your smooth floor needs.
These two attachments give the Miele Capri the power to not only clean the rugs my dog lies on, but
also to clean the linoleum and tile found in my apartment. For a situation like mine, where I have only a few rugs, one area of carpet, and
a lot of smooth floors, the Miele Capri is a perfect fit.
What makes this unit ideal for smaller homes and apartments is the size. The canister itself weighs less than 10 lbs. and unlike the
big upright my mother uses in her home, the Miele Capri fits neatly into the closet (not all in a tangled mess). The free rolling, swiveling casters allow the
vacuum to transition easily from room to room.
The larger G/N dust bags are a decided advantage over models that use the FJM or other types of Miele bags. The G/N bag has the highest
capacity, next to the U bag used by the Miele S7 uprights.
Like all Miele bags, the G/N is self-sealing. This latest generation of bag
from Miele is called the AirClean. This 9 ply bag, when coupled with the optional HEPA AirClean filter, creates one of the cleanest
vacuums available. It not only cleans your floors, but also the air in your home.
The Miele Classic C1 Capri gives you the same features as some of the more expensive canister
models including: the adjustable wand, 7 year motor warranty,
sturdy ABS plastic body, mini accessories on the wand, and a thermal shut off to name a few.
What I do not like about the Miele Capri C1 Vac
The largest drawback to this unit (and all units with this feature) is the Vario Clip. I know it was supposed to be more convenient than
the old style clip used in the older models, but it is hard for some of us to keep the Vario Clip and attachments from falling off. You
have to take care sometimes not bump the clip too hard otherwise you might have to make a pass back through to the room to find your mini
Overall, the Miele Classic line has a few minor features it lacks. The encased motor (for quieter operation), extra 3.5 feet of overall reach,
and minor changes in the styling are all ways that the Classic line of vacuums has trimmed cost to provide a more affordable Miele. The core features of
durability, suction, ease-of-use, and filtration are all there in the Capri but you lack some of the bells and whistles.
In all, the Miele Capri is a great canister vacuum cleaner best suited for homes or apartments that are dominated by smooth flooring. Though
not standard, the Capri can be upgraded to the H13 HEPA filter to provide you with some of the best air filtration Miele has to offer. The
Miele Capri is well built and durable. With two floors tools, this vacuum is up to the task of cleaning most surfaces in your home without polluting the air you breath.
