Miele Kona Complete C3 Review

I recently had a special event to attend that called for some pretty formal attire. To add that extra touch to the fancy dress and shoes, I decided to splurge and have my hair professionally done. The day arrived and 45 minutes and a ton of hairspray later, I was fairly disappointed with the results. It looked nothing like the photos I showed the stylist and wasn’t at all my taste. With no time to change it or make a fresh start, I paid the salon and headed to the party, compromised coiffure and all.

That’s life. As frustrating as it is, things just don’t always go your way. But it’s especially discouraging when your hard earned money is down the drain for a product or service that leaves you dissatisfied. Which is probably why customers are so often asking us to speak in plain terms and simply guide them to what’s best and most well-reviewed item on their list. You’re willing to spend the money – as long as you’re confident in what you’re getting.

Reasons We Love The Kona

#1 The Price


Awarded Good Housekeeping’s “Seal Of Approval”

The Kona has some specific qualities that make it so fabulous but let’s start first with the price. If you’ve shopped for Mieles before, you know that the top model – the Brilliant C3 – can go for around $1500. At that price-point, you’re certainly getting unbelievable add-ons (like a velvet bumper strip and a 16-inch wide hard floor tool) but for many, it’s simply over the budget. And that’s why customers love the Kona.


The Kona is almost identical in the important, key features and only costs around $900. That’s $600 less! The Kona will have the same, 1200-watt, ultra quiet motor. It will include a very similar carpet floor tool and hard floor tool. It will come with the identical hose, wand, and accessories. And, most importantly, the Kona offers the exact 4.76-quart capacity, G/N Airclean Bag and Active H.E.P.A. Filter. So imagine owning Miele’s most sophisticated vacuum model, with fewer bells & whistles, at an affordable price! That’s the Kona.

#2 The Quality

Miele vacuum hepa filterThe Kona is part of Miele’s Complete C3 series. These canister vacuum cleaners feature Miele’s best components and filtration. The patented Sealed System is the next level up from HEPA Certified. Each individual compartment and the system as a whole are sealed with one continuous, durable rubber gasket, so any particulate matter is trapped in Miele’s disposable AirClean filtering dustbag and doesn’t escape back into the air you’re breathing.

0058059_miele-sbb300-3-parquet-floor-brush-07155710_2000086410_miele-kona-complete-c3-vacuumIn addition to the vacuum itself, the included floor attachments are also above the bar. The carpet powerhead is Miele’s SEB228 – their second best available. It’s designed to gently, but powerfully, clean deep into carpeting. The suction levels are easily changed with a tap of your foot so you can go from area rug to dense carpeting seamlessly. The hard floor tool that comes with the Kona is the SBB300-3 – their best, standard sized tool. The unique swivel neck on the attachment allows you to angle around even the most difficult furniture and corner.

#3 The Filtration

When vacuuming, the air that is suctioned in ultimately has to be exhausted back into the room. For standard vacuum brands, the smallest particles that aren’t trapped within the dirt bag are actually spewed into your face as you clean. Yuck! But this is exactly why you don’t by a standard vacuum brand – you buy a Miele.

With the Miele Kona Complete C3, dirt and debris travel through Miele’s incredible 12-Stage filtration system. Both the bag and the exhaust filter are built of layers upon layers of high-tech and high-quality filters. And even the canister itself is sealed with one, single extra thick, rubber gasket so to prevent any leakage. The entire unit works in sync to capture 99.9% of particles as small as .03 microns! It’s been proven in their extensive lab testing. This is what makes Miele cleaners so important to any homeowner with allergies, asthma, or other health concerns.
