If you think $900 for a vacuum is unreasonable, the new Miele C3 Kona Canister Vacuum might change your mind. Without a doubt, this is by far the smoothest, slickest, and best cleaning performance vacuum we’ve tried yet.
Engineering and Innovation are what sets the new Miele Complete C3 Kona Canister apart from its competitors. Miele has made ease of use smart, from storage in the closet. At the end of the day, the C3 Kona will make you less apt to dread vacuuming, and that’s half the battle right there.
Accessories are what exactly makes the process of vacuum-cleaning drop a little easier. The new Miele C3 Kona carries accessories inside its body. Pop open up a small compartment and you will find a crevice tool, an upholstery tool, and a dusting brush. These kinds of add-ons are fairly standard fare but, just like almost all Miele vacuums we’ve tried, they feel really sturdy and durable.
To help you complete the decision, the new Miele also included a Parquet Twister floor brush, it designed to focus on bare floors. It’s an unpowered brush head, simply because you don’t want tough brush bristles scraping against your polished hardwoods.
Miele takes care of smartly set weights in the vacuums to enhance balance and stability. You will notice these balance in actions if you walk far away from the vacuum during cleaning. You will never need to worry about the wand falling for that matter.
When you decide to bring the Kona to clean or maybe up stairs, the weights don’t take away from the experience. While brushhead feels sturdy, that was not to say you will feel like you’re pushing around a block of stone. Basically, at the time you switch on the powered brush, the motor is strong enough to push itself forward.
However, there might be a downside of that benefit: In our measurements, pulling the brush back will take 2.7 pounds of force-not a huge drag, but enough to tire us out after a half hour of cleaning.
If you’re going to spend a boatload of money on a vacuum, it better clean well. And so the Kona does, on both high-pile and bare floors. On low carpet, it picked up most of the testing dirt we laid out for it in one pass-and should get your carpets totally clean in two or three passes. Whenever we turned to high-pile carpet, it still gained the top scores of any canister we’ve tried so far.
We laid uncooked grain on the kitchen floor area, and enjoyed this Miele head to town. In a single pass, the Kona kept the floor spotless. Our particles testing also covered pet hair on carpets. No matter of how thick your carpets are, the power of Electro Plus thrilled cat and dog hair eliminate of thick carpet bristles. Used in combination with its HEPA filtration system, the Kona is an excellent way to reduce things that trigger allergies at home.
This model handled tight spaces relatively well. The wand needs only 4 inches of clearance to reach under home furniture, meaning that Kona owners won’t need to move chairs and sofas to clean up an entire room. The Electro Plus brush also obtained a good rank, cleaning right up towards wall from both front and side, and leaving no edge gap where dirt can accumulate.
It should be noted that all this powerful suction doesn’t grate on the ears. At maximum power, the Kona only produced 64.7 dBA-about as loud as a face-to-face conversation.
Is $900 too much for a vacuum? For neat freaks who can spend some cash up front, the math works out in Miele’s favor. Given the Kona’s arsenal of accessories, this machine could replace your dust buster, your stick vacuum, and your carpet vac, all at once. And since it’s cheaper to replace most vacuums than have them repaired, buying a Kona means banking on Miele’s warranty.
The Kona’s test results and ease of use stand way out from the pack. It provides superb dirt pick-up regarding both medium and high-pile carpet, comfortable handling, ıncluding a wide array of accessories. Your $900 ıs definitely an investment in thorough, uncomplicated vacuuming, and that is certainly about the best we could ask for.
