Found 26th Jun 2009Made hot 27th Jun 2009
Have been trying to justify buying this vacuum for some time now as the best price I could find online was £259.

Stopped into my local Currys (Chingford on the A406) this afternoon just to have a look at it in person (with intention of buying it elsewhere online if I could convince myself to pay that much for a vacuum) and found that the printed sign indicated the price of £127.97 and included the line 'save over £130'. Indeed. I got the last one there. The guys in the shop said that Currys is discontinuing Miele products. They aren't available online anymore.

As a rather odd bonus, spoke to a very nice gentleman who took a keen interest in my purchase of a vacuum and discussed with me how I came to decide on the model, etc. Turns out, CEO of the group was visiting the store that day! Very nice that he took the time to speak to a customer - really nice fella.

This is my first post (my husband is an avid reader of the site) - so please be kind. I know it may not be widely available as it's down to local stock availability - but too good a deal not to post in case it does help someone.

Better than a Dyson...?:w00t::thinking: I think not matey....Just had mine serviced after 6 years..64quid later and having all the bits renewed after it took a thrashing it'll STILL be better than any other Vacuum on the market...

If anyone finds any stock please let me know - would love one. There are none in my region (Hampshire / Wiltshire) according to Currys :-(

in the very limited time I've owned this machine it kicks our 4-year-old Dyson to the kerb (though the Dyson was not a pet-specific product which we do now need, badly)...plus same part has broken on the Dyson 3x in 4 years which makes me question build quality.

Very happy with this one I am...especially for the price I paid - really over the moon.

What makes you say that then little man ....?:thinking: I stick to what I said a Dyson will 'out-vacuum' anything on the market. And our neighbour, who has a dog, and the drag along version of the Miele also agrees with me....

just phoned my local currys and they said it has been discontinued and only display models left in certain stores

it's the new Miele model...it's not being discontinued by Miele, but by Currys as far as I know.
Apparently Miele don't sell as well as other brands in the UK, though they sell very well in Europe. ..I know this 'cause the CEO told me.

the one I bought was the floor model - one small scuff on it, but otherwise brand new, complete with box.

Got one of these for my dog but she would not use it and the cat just walks away with his nose in the air.

Dyson is better than Miele.....no its not......yes it is!?!

You're both wrong, you should all just buy a Henry!!!!

I had a Kirby Salesman at mine last week, now that was impressive.
After Hoovering with my Dyson it picked up loads of dust off my rug.

The bed demo was impressive too.

Oh yeah, the Price = £2350.

How many cats & dogs can it fit in the bag?

If you look at the Which reviews Miele are rated the best - Dyson would be a strong competitor if it wasn't for their very poor reliability ratings.....

Very hot deal if you can find one.

Dyson may be good in the vacuuming department but look like toys and the cheap plastic quality is woeful.

yes,definately a case of looking at the mantelpiece whilst poking the fire!:w00t:

Why would you want to vacume a cat and dog?

Which rated it better than the Dyson.

We have a different model miele. Brilliant piece of kit, far better than the dyson.

Nothing in Leigh, Wigan, St Helens or Bolton, just called.

In stock at Mile End, just picked one up, thanks people! great deal, and already had to test it out, my cream carpet looks brand new again! well maybe not quite, but much better than the crappy morphy richards I had before! :-) very pleased.

Best bet is probably to phone up and ask them to find you one, let them know that it's discontinued though - as the girl I spoke to initially didn't find one until I said it was discountinued.

I'm still trying to work that out.
Bizarre 1970s-like snobbery, stupidity, both?

Great deal anyway, just wish I could fine one.

So, so pleased that someone else got one! I was starting to worry that I got the last one in the UK. We also have cream carpet (not our choice, we inherited it! ) In addition to how well it seems to pick up the cat hair, we're also really impressed at how much fluffier the carpet feels - and it was my husband who first pointed it out...so you know it must be true.

They have a few (5) cylinder type vac's at Blackpools southshore store but there not discounted very much. i.e.S5261 Cat & Dog £148.97.

I think you can buy them at that price a few places, the o.p. got a cracking deal though, lucky begger.. :thumbsup:

Rottweilers don't hoover - but if they did we'd use that new Dyson ball one. Woof!

We replaced our faltering Dyson with a different Miele cat and dog vacuum cleaner. The Miele outshone it in every way. Only downside is that the Miele requires bags, which may put off the average shopper these days and the fact that the Miele costs twice as much as similar looking (though not performing) competitors.

One more thing - Miele vacuums are quieter than most others, including the noisy Dysons.

This is a great deal and hopefully others will be able to benefit too. If I didn't already have a Miele vacuum, I'd be getting this one.

As far as the age old argument of which vacuum is the best, everyone will have their preferences, usually the one they own. At risk of adding fuel to the fire - I prefer bagged (never been impressed by, nor understood the pre-occupation with bagless) vacuum cleaners and Miele ones at that. Fantastic build quality, fanastic reliability and fantasic customer service.

I realise this could be interpreted as contradicting what I said above regarding reliability, but you can get a 10yr parts and labour warranty from Miele for £30 on certain models of vacuum cleaner. I think this one qualifies (S7 model).

miele.co.uk/cus…spx

I normally steer well clear of extended warranties, but £30 to extend to 10 years can't be bad. Even better when you factor in the cost of the bags you get.

Superb bit of kit.

Picks up miles more than any Dyson I ever had

If Dyson's are that good, and feel they are the best WHY will they never test 1 of their Vacuums against a Miele???

They always use the excuse, the Miele isn't bagless therefor can't be used in one of their tests.


The Truth is, Bags are better. 1 reason, they keep the smells trapped inside and doesn't blast the warm, smelly air straight out. They also keep a higher level of suction as the dust doesn't block up the filter BUT the best feature is, wen you come to empty a Miele the bag closes up and no dust stays inside the machine or is blown around like a Dyson as u empty it.


The Dyson lovers will always say their vacuum is best, as they need to justify why they spent a small fortune on a noisy, plastic, smelly, dusty machine. Miele owner just smile and let them carry on :-)



Oh and you can call Miele up and for £80 they will collect your vacuum and make it like new & post it back....... useful after 10-15years of use.

do a quick calcs. anybody could tell me how much these bags cost and how often need to change?

I have a Sebo upright which is a very fine piece of kit. I also have a Miele cylinder.

Had previous Dysons; when they first came out they were fine bit quality is poor now and I wouldnt recommend

As for using bags surprisingly they dont need emtying very often as the dirt is compacted

Mind you Barbara Royle always dreamt of a Dyson

Sebo cleaners are really really good!!! Designed with a ruler tho :-)

Well you can, if you are feeling really tight, empty the bags and reuse them BUT for the sake of a few £££ I just get a new 1 out.

Bags cost about £6-9 for a box of 4 & that last us about 1yr. Only have a small home, 80% carpet and 2 cats.

My mother gets through about 4 bags a year too, 4 bed large bungalow but only 40% carpet which the cats & dog do not go on.

Totally agree. Especially the last two paragraphs. :thumbsup:

I sent my cylinder in for a free service just before the 5 year warranty expired. They came and collected it, providing a very good box. A few days later it was back with me, sparkling like new with new filters, a new bag and it even came in it's own little red Miele carry case. :-D

As far as bag usage, I suppose it depends on how often you vacuum and if you have pets, etc.

I have a Miele Cat & Dog cylinder and have carpets throughout our 2 bed terraced. We have two cats and two toddlers. We vacuum most days. I'd also say that, on average, a single box of 4 bags would last the best part of a year.

I have to admit, I've never bought any bags though. :whistling: When I first bought my vacuum cleaner I took out the 5yr extended warranty. iirc it was about £12 per year back then but included a years supply of bags delivered to your door and a free service. Subtracting the cost of the bags and service, I thought it was worth the cost (as I said above, I don't normally do extended warranties :roll:). However, Miele cocked up slightly and sent me too many bags on more than one occasion, so I've still got several boxes left even after 7 years.

I wanted one of these but my mum bought me a Dyson instead. Yuk.. does she think I live on a council estate?

Thanks for original poster. Ive just gone and bought this Miele from Currys at Manchester fort. It was the last one, but had no box. Well worth it.

They had one Miele S7210 left at £124.97

Good price for this Vakom ..

what would anyone advice as a best vacuum to get ??????????????????

please

Currys sell bags that fit the Cat and Dog for about half the price of the Meile bags.

Meile Cat and Dog is a fantastic vacuum cleaner

No stock in Currys, Aintree
