Perfection is very hard to achieve in vacuuming, but Miele certainly got very close when they built the S5981 Capricorn canister vacuum. The Miele designers exceeded everyone’s expectations when they created this vacuum cleaner which is not only very good-looking but also very safe, efficient and easy to use. In fact, it has almost all the luxury features a consumer can wish for a vacuum cleaner to have.
First of all, the performance of the Miele S5981 Capricorn canister vacuum is simply enviable. Equipped with a 1200-watt Vortex motor and an SEB 217-3 electric powerbrush, which is the best cleaning brush available in the market, this vacuum does not have any difficulties when it comes to cleaning smooth floors and low and medium pile carpets for the head is floating. The user can easily adjust the suction power to the type of surface and the amount of dirt they are cleaning via the suction controls placed on the handle of the appliance. There are five height settings that can be made. If the user needs to clean hardwood, ceramic floors or concrete, they can use the 12-inch parquet floor brush, which is more efficient than the powerbrush on these surfaces and in tight corners for it features a 90-degree rotation head and very gentle on them. Both these brushes can be controlled very easily, so there should be no reservations from this point of view.
All the accessories of the Capricorn canister vacuum are stored on-board, so not only are they impossible to lose, but they are also at hand, thus saving the user the time they would normally spend looking for them around the house. The accessories that accompany this appliance are quite impressive and increase the functionality and convenience of this appliance infinitely. There is a standby button on the ergonomically designed handle the user can press if they want to take a break from their vacuuming yet save energy, the button that engages or disengages the powerbrush and then there are the suction power controls. The latter is much more convenient than the traditional rotary dial, saving the user the effort of bending down. This vacuum also features an extra long cord which can be rewound automatically and increases the operating radius up to an impressive 33 feet. Finally, the three casters smooth the transitions over thresholds and various obstacles and the bumper protects the furniture and the ABS plastic shell of the appliance too.
As for the filtration performance, the Miele S5981 Capricorn canister vacuum is also equipped with the standard Miele filtration system, namely the Air Clean sealed system, which includes a 9-ply dust bag and a HEPA filter. All these components ensure a thorough cleaning of the floors and air simultaneously. There is no risk of overloading the dust bag with this canister vacuum because a dust bag indicator lets the user know when the bag has stored the maximum amount of 4.76 dry quarts of air pollutants.
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.
