Miele S6 Quartz S6270 Vacuum Review

2017 Update:

Effective April 2017, Miele has discontinued the Quartz canister cleaner. For a similar model, consider the Miele Compact C1 Pure Suction. This new model features the same Combo Floor Tool, filtration, and accessories. It’s even a little more affordable – so we think it’s a great option! Any questions regarding the change to Miele’s 2017 line-up can be directed to 1-800-221-8227.

When I was a kid, my mother had a famous saying. Whether I was in the middle of a toy aisle, on my way to a second serving of birthday cake, or at the checkout line of my favorite clothing store, she would give her telling sideways glance and ask, “Is that a NEED or a WANT?” Over time, it became a bit of a family mantra and I catch my brother and I still using it today.

Though simple in structure, this question can be applied to a lifetime’s worth of big decisions. And, even when the answer is “a want,” you begin to learn when it’s ok to go ahead, and when it’s time to say no. But wouldn’t it just be so wonderful to have one of those big decisions be both a want and a need? Well, that’s kind of what you get with the Miele S6 Quartz.

The S6 Quartz canister vacuum from Miele boasts the quality construction you’ve heard about and minimal additions to keep the cost low. If you’ve wanted to provide your family with all the health benefits of a Miele but thought the cost was out of your reach, look no further than the S6 Quartz. It truly is the best of both worlds!

Let’s start first with the exclusive Miele 12-stage AirClean Sealed System. All vacuums exhaust air as the unit suctions dirt and debris. However, Miele filters the exhausted air in such a way that it has been proven by independent laboratory tests to be over 99.9% effective in capturing and containing pollens, dust mites, pet dander and other irritants known to trigger allergy and asthma symptoms.

Miele S6 QuartzIf you’re in the market for a vacuum to meet the health needs of your family, the Quartz is the least expensive, current Miele model featuring this Sealed System. Plus, you have the option of upgrading to an Active AirClean or Active H.E.P.A filter for even better filtration.

What you won’t find in the Miele S6 Quartz is an electric floor tool for deep cleaning medium – high pile carpeting. The Quartz does come with the SBD285-3 Classic Combo Floor Tool which is ideal for hard surface flooring like wood, laminate, or tile. It’s also great for low pile area rugs. If your home has hard flooring and area rugs, the Quartz is a great match for you!

You can turn the vacuum on & off as well as activate the automatic cord rewind with the touch of your foot!

Miele S6 vacuum cleaners have exceptional maneuverability with three smooth running 360 degree castor wheels mounted on steel axles. This guarantees stability and maneuverability and the travel ramp design lets you move your vacuum easily over thresholds and around obstructions. With a Rotary Dial to regulate suction, you can easily move from area rugs to draperies. Six power levels move you from 1200 all the way down to 300 watts for every cleaning need. The simple, graphic symbols help you to choose the right power level for each cleaning surface.

If you’ve dreamed of owning a Miele vacuum, the S6 Quartz combines affordability with quality in one beautiful package. Or, as my mother would say…it’s a need and a want!
