Miele C3 Alize Canister Vacuum

The Miele C3 canister vacuum cleaners offer exceptional features and ultimate cleaning capability. The new C3 line offers the quietest Miele vacuum cleaners available and all models offer variable suction control via foot controlled buttons on the body of the machine, rather than a dial controlled by the user’s hand. The Miele C3 Alize canister is delivered in a beautiful ivory white finish and is a great canister choice for homes with low pile carpets and solid flooring. 

The Miele C3 Alize features the low-noise, whisper-quiet Miele-made 1200 watt Vortex motor. This motor is similar to the one found in the C1, S5 and C2 lineup of canisters, but this model is even more quiet than its predecessors. The Miele S8 Alize also features an automatic power setting. Using this setting the operator receives several benefits. The Auto setting will automatically change the suction level of the vacuum cleaner depending on the surface being cleaned, meaning that delicate items like curtains or lampshades automatically use a lower suction level during cleaning over carpet or other surfaces requiring stronger suction. Additionally, this feature saves electricity by only using the maximum amount of power necessary for the cleaning task at hand. 

The castor wheels on the C3 machines also offer a change-up from the C1, S5 and C2 machines. These dynamic drive castor wheels are an upgrade from previous models because they are filled with air, rather than being simply a solid plastic system, which allows the vacuum to glide easily and quietly over multiple surfaces and multiple obstacles. . Of course, as with every Miele canister vacuum, the S8 Alize utilizes the exclusive 12-stage AirClean sealed system. Using the unique type G/N AirClean Filterbags in combination with an active HEPA filter (AH-50) and pre-motor filter this machine removes all dust and debris during the cleaning process without emitting anything back into the home. The sealed system also guarantees that the air expelled by the vacuum is cleaner than the air being pulled in during the cleaning process. The S8 Alize also offers a convenient filter replacement indicator to alert the user when the filter requires replacement. 

The Miele C3 Alize offers a lightweight, telescopic, stainless steel wand that adjusts to the right length for you to clean comfortably from the floor level to the ceiling. This heavy duty wand works seamlessly with your Miele floor tools, attachments, and the durable crushproof hose. The new hose on the C3 Alize offers a deluxe handle with a headlight built into the hose connector so even if your floor tool does not offer an LED headlight, your hose always will. Included with the Miele C3 Alize, the AirTeQ Combination Floor Tool (SBD 650-3) will easily clean your low pile carpets and solid floors throughout your home. This model also includes a dusting brush, upholstery tool and crevice nozzle for detailed cleaning throughout the home. All of these accessories conveniently store within the vacuum body. Another feature on the Miele C3 Alize that was not available in previous Miele canister models is the one-touch cable rewind.  With the new cable rewind system, you no longer have to hold the cable rewind button down to retract the powercord. Simply touch the button once and the cord stores itself within the vacuum neatly. 

With the combination of the powercord, crushproof hose and telescopic wand, the Miele C3 Alize offers a 36ft overall cleaning radius.
