We write a lot about cordless vacuums and robot vacuums. Mostly, because for the majority of people out there one or the other is the best for their situation — cordless for smaller homes and general use, and robot for larger homes with a side of lethargy. The canister vacuums from Miele, which Wirecutter once called “just about the best you can get in cleaning,” is not for everyone — but for those it is for, it’s the best, and two of its entry-level models are on sale today.
The Compact C2 Electro (the one mentioned in the Wirecutter article) and the Compact C1 are both at the lowest price we’ve seen them in a while today. The upshot on these vacuums — if you or a person in your home have asthma, persistent allergy issues, are seroius about the quality of the air in your place or serioius despise dust, these are the vacuums to get.
As a general rule, canister vacuums create far more suction than any cordless or corded upright vacuums, and have far more space for filtration systems. It should be noted these vacuums are not bagless, so you’ll have to remember to keep up with buying those (the bags fill up very quickly if you have shedding animals in your home).
Both vacuums are 30 percent off today on Amazon.
