Miele Alize Review & Comparison

Trying to determine which Miele canister vacuum is the best for you?

You know you want the best – so you’re choosing a Miele – but how do you pick from their incredible line of canister vacuums?

Mieles are built with such attention to detail and high-quality construction, you’re getting a superior product no matter which unit you choose. However, there are some key differences between series’ and models. Today we’re reviewing the Miele Complete C3 Alize and comparing it to the other Complete C3 models to help determine if the Alize is right for your needs.

0082583_miele-alize-complete-c3-vacuumThe Miele Alize is part of the Complete C3 Series. The C3 models are the most elite, including all the latest features and additions. These units will offer built-in tool storage, automatic power settings, change bag and filter indicators, and more.

Perhaps the most important feature on the Complete C3 models is the patented AirClean Sealed System. This is what sets the Miele apart from any other vacuum. All the dust and debris that is suctioned into the canister is passed through numerous layers of filtration. So efficient, it proves to be 99.9% effective in capturing and containing pollens, dust mites, pet dander and other irritants known to trigger allergy and asthma symptoms.

Features & Distinctions Of The Complete C3 Alize:

0086546_miele-alize-complete-c3-vacuumThe Alize comes with the AirTeQ Combo Floor Tool and a non-electric hose. This means the Alize is best suited for a home or business with limited carpeting. If the majority of your home is tile, wood, or other hard surface flooring, you do not need an electric hose or powerhead. The good news is: you’ll save money! Miele models including electric hoses and carpeting powerheads cost more. This is why the Alize is one of the least expensive C3 canisters. 

0082600_miele-alize-complete-c3-vacuumA feature found only in the Alize C3 is Miele’s patented Dynamic Drive. Dynamic Drive integrates shock absorbers within the wheel’s construction. This is particularly helpful in homes with tile, as the shock absorbers help the wheels navigate quietly over grout joints. The wheels also have a 360 degree turning capacity and mounting them on steel axles guarantees stability and maneuverability.

0086542_miele-alize-complete-c3-vacuumThe Alize includes the G/N AirClean FilterBag and Active H.E.P.A. Filter. This pair, combined with the Sealed System construction of the canister, ensures an incredibly clean exhaust. The bag is super easy to change and features an automatic self-sealing collar. A plastic flap on the 3D AirClean dust bag closes the bag opening automatically when the dust compartment lid is opened. This way, when you go to change the bag, you’re not exposed to any of its contents.

0086540_miele-alize-complete-c3-vacuumThe parking system on the Complete C3 Alize allows you to park the wand in the rear and side position. Better still, the Alize features the brand new automatic stand-by switch. When it is in the rear park position, the vacuum will automatically power off. Then, simply remove the wand from park and the unit will turn itself back on. No need to turn the unit off and on to answer the phone or move a piece of furniture…just park it and come back when you are ready to start vacuuming again.

0082585_miele-alize-complete-c3-vacuumFinally, found only on the Alize, the ergonomic, soft-grip, handle features an extra bright, LED light. Centered on the handle, the light acts as a guide to your vacuuming, illuminating the path and ensuring you don’t miss a spot!
