You'll never buy another Vacuum cleaner,
They say "buy cheap, buy twice" and if there's any household item that rings true with this statement, it's the humble vacuum cleaner. At over £200 you may think that it's a lot of money, but with a 10 year warranty available for just £30, the Miele Cat & Dog is one of those sundry goods that once purchased, you'll think "WHY didn't I buy one of these five years ago?", especially as you take out your broken, dust-filled previous cleaner to the dustbin.
It's an extremely powerful vacuum cleaner with a robust, light feel to it. Some may prefer the cylindrical feel of the Dysons et al, but the Miele is easy to store, clean and makes very little noise compared to other models. We have a long-haired cat with a propensity for moulting everywhere and with just a couple of cleans a week, our house is free of it. It has 4 differing power modes for the type of carpet you have and comes with a formidable array of various attachments to help you clean all manner of places. The hose and pipe are all smartly designed and also easy to clean, which helps a lot.
The main body has several sections which can be opened up - one for the various attachments which are stored neatly, plus the dustbags, which are held on with a secure pair of prongs, again well designed. My only small gripe is that the dustbags are quite expensive, at around £4 a go and will last probably 2-3 months a go. It's probably best to buy a load of them in bulk if at all possible to save on cost. If you don't mind getting your hands a little dirty, it is possible to empty them for re-use but I only did this because I'd run out of bags.
Which! magazine consistently votes the Miele S6220 as one of the best cleaners there is and after 18 months with ours it's hard to disagree with that statement.
