There are a lot things to be impressed by the Miele Blizzard Bagless Canister Vacuum. For starter, it does not quite look like a vacuum cleaner when viewed from a certain perspective. OK. Maybe I am a little superficial, but hear me out. It looks rather spaceship-ish when viewed at an angle from the side, a design aesthetic that drew us to it in the first place. But of course, the Miele Blizzard CX1 is more than just a pretty face. It is named Blizzard for a reason.
How so? Well, this bagless vacuum cleaner is driven by a powerful 1,200W proprietary Vortex Motor that works at air flow rates of over 100 km/h (62 mph+!, imagine that!). Moreover, mono-cyclone technology incorporated within works to separate coarse and fine dust, which it collects via a fine dust filter, called Gore CleanStream fine dust filter, in a separate container so that fine dust will not be distributed back into air while emptying.
Other notables include a 4-setting rotary dial for suction power control, maintenance-free HEPA Lifetime Filter, one-click emptying of dust container, an airtight and aerodynamic floored, made in Germany quality assurance, and last but not least, the Miele Blizzard CX1 has a specific model dedicated to pet owners which, in addition to the crevice, upholstery nozzle, as well as a separate dusting brush, comes with a hand-held mini turbo brush for picking up pet hair.
