Original bags (this model uses the GN bag) are sold in packs of 4 and come with a pre-motor and a post-motor filter. These typically retail at around the £10 to £12 mark. On the high street, the likes of Robert Dyas have been known to charge up to £15.

BUT, you can find deals out there. Easy answer is to use generic brand copycat bags which can cost around about a fiver for 5 or 6 bags, but there are a few caveats. They lack some of the qualities that make the genuine ones superior.

Genuine bags have a set of ribbons running throughout the bag, so when the bag inflates these ribbons running midway in the bag and they ripple/flap providing two benefits: 1) if you vacuum up something sharp like a nail or shard of glass, the object hits the ribbon and decelerates before hitting the side of the bag, thus no punctures. 2) The ribbons disrupt the dust coming into the bag and randomly distribute it within it, with the benefit that when the indicator says that the bag is full, it truly is full. Suction performance is virtually indistinguishable from a new bag so efficiency remains high throughout usage. Without these ribbons, all the dust would hit the same spot, and block airflow convincing you to change the bag well before it was truly full.

Genuine bags are made, I think it's 9 layers, of randomly spun filter fibres that almost handle all of the filtering before needing to rely on the other two filters sitting within the machine. Put it this way, the days of opening up your dust canister to change the bag and find dust and crud accumulated within the vacuum carcass are long gone with Miele's excellent design.

So - Do you pay £10 to 12 for 4 bags - seems expensive right? Or do you go for cheapo copycat bags that are thinner, don't filter as well and need replacing more often?
Well, you don't have to compromise, because there's a company called Kenco Spares (they're an authorised Miele repair centre over in Ireland) that does packs of just the original Miele bags. 12 bags for £12 via Amazon on
amazon.co.uk/Com…CJ/


What you need to remember is that you'll need to find filters elsewhere. Being a Miele, it either comes fitted with the standard filter cage which you open and change the post motor filter that they provide in a retail pack of 4 bags + filters, or you can remove the cage and in its place, you can use one of their better filters. There's a Cat&Dog filter (~£15) that deals with smells using active charcoal, or there's a HEPA filter cartridge (up to £20) that traps the smallest of dust particles, a product aimed at allergy sufferers.
Filters are meant to be changed roughly every 12 months.

Sometimes Miele do deals where they give away one of the better filters with a pack of their bags, but you need to keep your eyes peeled on their website.

I used Dysons for years... was given one of these by my sister when she moved house and its so much better than any Dyson I've ever owned. Much cheaper too at this price!
As above, these are amazing and way better than any other machine I have used. They look similar but the performance is ourstanding. The build quality is excellent too.

I recently bought the Complete C3 Ecoline boost amazon.co.uk/dp/…p_1
I paid £132 for it and all I can say is that it's superb. A perfect piece of engineering. Tried many vacuums, will never buy another brand.
Was £100 a few months ago for the higher power version?

I only do it because I hate how retailers rip off the (deliberately dumbed-down) consumer on essential non-glamourous items that are required to live with some semblance of dignity.

Instead, it's deals deals deals on fried chicken and burgers and disenchanted people become convinced to live like animals when they return back to their abode.

Great info!

Do you have to throw the bag once it's full? (i.e are the bags one use only?)
If so, is it even possible to empty it out and go another 2/3 times?


I ask because not only is there an extra cost but also the environmental impact of all these extra bags being constantly disposed. I tend to sway towards bagless (dyson really) for these reasons but they do cost a ton. Our washer/dryer/dishwasher is Miele so I already love the brand I just wish they made a bagless hoova!

Fill up and throw, one use but they're 4litres (might be 4.5 - can't remember).
Fills up and you chuck it out no dust or cr~p to clean out. You could diy hack it, and cut the bag open and sew it back up, but you're going to be compromising the filtration efficiency with the potential of polluting the motor.
Bagless tend to be much much smaller in capacity. A lot of the handheld rechargeables are barely half a litre.

Miele do make a bagless vacuum cleaner - they call it the Monster MashBlizzard

Buy the eco Boost version direct from Miele for a tenner less than this. Boost button ramps up the power for a minute up to the PowerLine's equivalent max 890 wattage, then it settles back down to a maximum Eco 550 wattage.

The bags are usually good quality snd larger than you'd expect with a closing flap for disposal the pack usually contains a filter. The miele bags tend to be expensive but good there are other suppliers usually half price and up to now have been good quality. The last one's I bought was from a local (Gateshead)store called Boyes.
