Polar Ice Miele Ariel S5211 Canister

Customers always have the highest expectations from the appliance manufactured by Miele and the German manufacturer never fails them. It was precisely this desire to meet their cleaning needs and expectations that inspired them to launch the S5 series of vacuums, a collection of products with a spectacular array of features. The Miele S5211 Ariel canister vacuum is the first vacuum ever to be released on the market within this series.

Miele Ariel S5211  SEB 236 Floor Brush

Customers who have hardwood floors and flat carpets to clean can certainly rely on the S5211 Ariel canister vacuum to help them with their job because this appliance features a very convenient combination tool that can be used for both types of surfaces, thus saving them the time they would normally have to waste replacing tools. This combination tool is very gentle on the floors it cleans thanks to its nylon bristles, which can be retracted whenever the user wants to comb through their carpets.

The 1200-watt Vortex motor mounted on the Ariel vacuum cleaner can generate six different levels of suction power, so there is a right power for any surface that might need cleaning, may it be curtains, carpets or smooth floors. However, a high suction power level set via the rotary dial does not necessarily involve a high noise level too, Miele S5 vacuums being famous for their quiet operation. This powerful motor is prevented from overheating by the safety shut-off feature whenever the airflow is limited.

Miele Ariel S5211  Integrated AccessoriesMiele vacuum cleaners always aim at high convenience, so they feature a number of accessories for cleaning hard-to-reach areas of the house. The S5211 Ariel canister vacuum also features them. These include an upholstery nozzle, a dusting brush and a tool specially designed for cleaning crevices. These three accessories are stored on-board so, theoretically, the risk of losing them is null. There are three parking docks on the back side of the vacuum where the tools can be inserted and there is also a park system which comes in very handy whenever the canister is not being used.

Miele Ariel S5211  Operating Radius

Another attractive feature of all S5 vacuums and therefore the Ariel vacuum too is their increased maneuverability. This is increased by the 360-degree casters this vacuum is outfitted with which save it from all the dragging vacuum cleaners are usually subjected to. The bumper strip prevents the furniture and floors from scratching during vacuuming and the ergonomically designed handle relieves the tension the wrist is usually subjected to. The 33-foot long power cord further increases the maneuverability of this vacuum, saving a lot of time which is usually wasted searching for outlets around the house.

More benefits for the Miele Ariel S5211

Miele Ariel S5211  Air Clean Filtration System

Last but not least, the Air Clean filtration system does a wonderful job. The Active Air Clean filter cleans 99.97% of the pollutants in the air which are sealed in the 4.76-quart dust bag so that they do not escape back into the air. This dust bag has four layers, so it has no difficulties retaining larger quantities of dust and dirt. All in all, the Miele S5211 Ariel canister vacuum may be the introductory model of the S5 series, but that does not make it any less powerful or efficient than its successors within its series.

Miele Authorized Internet Dealer Miele Immer Besser Badge

Suitable for cleaning all types of floors and floor coverings, Miele’s S5 Series blends energy efficiency with standard-setting innovations to create a highly intelligent and remarkably convenient vacuum cleaner. Many S5 models feature foot pedal controls for effortless comfort, and the savvy S5 Earth offers a self-adjusting AutoEco™ setting. As you transition from hardwoods to dense carpeting, the S5 Earth automatically decreases suction, then increases suction when you return to smooth, solid flooring — saving you both time and energy.

The ergonomic telescopic wands standard on all S5 models make reaching for curtain rods, mantles, blinds and other hard-to-reach surfaces as easy and convenient as caring for your floors. And with an additional layer of sound insulation, these full-size canisters operate quietly without waking sleeping children or disrupting conversations.

There’s a Better Way Forward - For Allergy and Asthma Sufferers.
From introducing the world’s first HE PA certified vacuum cleaner to developing our advanced 12-layer filtration system, Miele has been pioneering the science of clean air technology for more than 80 years. While many vacuum cleaners today promise to remove allergens from the air completely, only Miele’s AirClean Sealed System® has been proven by independent laboratory tests to be over 99.99% effective in capturing and containing pollens, dust mites, pet dander and other irritants known to trigger allergy and asthma symptoms. Within each Miele Series, you’ll find HE PA vacuum cleaners — and all help you and your family breathe easier.
