The Miele Complete C2 Canister Vacuum

The Miele Complete C2 is a canister vacuum designed to tackle a variety of surfaces, whether it’s bare floors, dusty rugs, or even drapes. Despite being a powerful machine, it is designed to be easily maneuverable. You can easily reach and clean the back of sofas, crevices along windows and doors, and even under the furniture.

the Miele Complete C2 is perfect for cleaning dusty rugs, surfaces, and even

If you live in a home with hard flooring or low-pile carpeting, this corded vacuum will be a great buy. In some Miele vacuum cleaner reviews, we’ve read that it doesn’t really work well on high-pile carpeting, especially with its floor brush accessories. We do agree to this. Although, we also know the Miele vacuum works perfectly fine with any type of hard floors and thin wall-to-wall carpets.

This vacuum is also a good choice if you’re prone to suffering from dust allergies. The AirClean filter makes sure you breathe in only clean air the entire time you’re vacuuming. Some vacuums can expel dusty air back into any room, but this is not a problem with the excellent filtration system from Miele.

In most vacuum cleaner reviews, Miele is a brand known for its longevity and exceptional vacuum design. This specific model has been praised for its solid and elegant build. And even with its remarkable suction power, it is pleasantly quiet and glides well on floors and light carpeting.


A powerful 1200-watt motor brings this Miele Complete C2 to life, making it possible to clean even the most difficult surfaces and to suction off a substantial amount of dust and debris. Due to its impressive suction power, you no longer have to keep pushing the vacuum. It simply sucks up dirt and debris and pet hair in almost a jiffy.

It’s easy to cut your cleaning time in half with the suction abilities of the Miele Complete C2. But what is also great, is that you can adjust the suction levels according to the type of surface you’re cleaning. The variable speed control makes it possible for you to transition your vacuum from cleaning floors to drapes without fuss.

At 19.35 lbs, this canister vacuum appears to be heavier than some of its counterparts, such as the Dyson Canister Big Ball Canister Vacuum at only a little above 17 lbs. However, we have found the Miele Complete C2 is easy enough to carry and maneuver on floors and carpets.

The cord length at 21 ft is long enough for cleaning a large room, which makes this vacuum suitable for expansive living spaces. One popular lament, though, is that the bottom placement of the power button makes turning the vacuum on and off a bit awkward. With a bit of getting used to, however, you can simply overlook this tiny inconvenience.


The Miele Complete C2 comes with a couple of accessories, which are the crevice tool and the dusting brush with upholstery tool. These are in addition to the Parquet Twister XL Floor Brush that allows the vacuum to glide easily under tables, chairs, and narrow surfaces.

The additional brushes are convenient to use on the floor and a variety of other surfaces such as furniture, the back of chairs, and even on draperies.


​The Miele Complete C2 is well within the expensive category of canister vacuums. This can be a drawback for some, especially since the vacuum does not really take care of high-pile carpets. However, its motor and suction performance can clean almost any surface, making it a reasonable expense.

In fact, this Miele Complete C2 is more affordable compared to the new Miele Complete C3​. Although with the New ​Miele C3, you get a HEPA filter instead of the usual AirClean filter system on most standard Miele vacuums.

What We Like

The Miele Complete C2 comes with a wide range of features and accessories, and its excellent motor and suction power make it a worthy buy for anyone. It is great for cleaning rugs, bare floors, and even low carpets. With its parquet brush and additionally attached brushes, cleaning narrow surfaces is possible.

The AirClean filtration system of this vacuum also makes it a smart purchase. As already discussed in this Miele Complete C2 review, this vacuum expels only clean air back into any room, so cleaning is both convenient and mess-free. The noiseless operation of this cleaning tool is also praised in many other Miele vacuum reviews.

What We Don't Like

There are only a few things we wish we could add to this canister vacuum, and this includes an additional beater brush for high-pile carpets. Considering the price, the ability of this vacuum to cater to thick carpets would be a nice bonus.

The power button could also be placed somewhere more convenient, although for a top-performing vacuum this could easily be overlooked.


  • Not ideal for high pile carpeting
  • Bottom placement of power button

Final Thoughts

Powerful, versatile, and easy to maneuver, this Miele Complete C2 canister vacuum is one exceptional purchase. We recommend this vacuum for anyone who requires superb vacuuming action and impressive filtration in one, and doesn’t mind paying a good price for it.

​Why Buy?

An exceptional purchase for its powerful, versatile, and easy to maneuver features.
