Miele S2 Olympus Vacuum Review

Miele S2 Olympus Canister Vacuum S2120

When it comes to housekeeping, what is your biggest challenge?

For me, keeping the carpets clean ranks pretty high up on the list!

You see, when you live with two large shedding machines (also known as “the cats”), a household of humans who are constantly bringing the outdoors inside, and an upright vacuum that weighs a ton, pristine carpets are a rarity! Who has the time, energy, or strength to constantly lug around a heavy upright just to keep up with the messies?

Thankfully, my carpet woes may now be a thing of the past thanks to Miele Vacuums!

Recently, the fine folks at Vacuum-Direct.com invited me to test drive a Miele S2 Olympus Canister Vacuum S2120 – the entry-level model in a line of high-quality vacuums from German-based manufacturer Miele (pronounced mee-luh). Miele is a name you can trust. Miele Vacuums have earned the Good Housekeeping Seal Of Approval and high consumer ratings across the Internet!

Miele in Box

On the day that the Miele S2 Olympus Canister Vacuum S2120 arrived, I received an attractively designed, securely packaged Miele vacuum with an accessory kit, an extra vacuum bag, and an easy-to-read instruction manual inside. The vacuum was easy to assemble – everything just snapped into place!

Over the next several days, my husband and I thoroughly tested this vacuum (yes, even Prince Charming was unable to resist the call of the Miele!) We tested it on our carpets, floors and stairs. We refrained from testing it on the shedding machines and humans, however, as the instruction manual explicitely warns against such things!

We soon discovered that although the Miele is small in size, it is mighty in power!

Here are a few things that I love about this vacuum:

The Miele Fits On The Stairs

First, the Miele S2 Olympus S2120 Canister Vacuum is lightweight, portable and highly maneuverable! Its retractable cord allows it to automatically move with you as you clean (and the cord retracts with the push of a button when you are through!). It easily fits on the stairs and makes cleaning stairwells a breeze!

It also reaches places an upright vacuum can’t.

It was much easier for me to use this vacuum than my current upright model.

Second, the Miele S2 Olympus S2120 Canister Vacuum is quiet to operate and sensibly designed. The On/Off button and the Retractable Power Cord buttons are on top of the vacuum, and controlled by the tap of your foot.

Miele Foot Pedal

You also use a foot pedal, located on the Floor Brush, to control the carpet and floor settings. A knob on the top of the vacuum controls the amount of suction power the vacuum uses.

Third, the accessory tools that come with the vacuum cleaner are easy to change and easy to use. The Natural Bristle Dust Brush, Crevice Tool, and Upholstery Nozzle fit right into the Accessory Clip on the front of the vacuum, so you always have the tool you need at your fingertips!

Finally – as an asthma and allergy sufferer – I am pleased that the Miele S2 Olympus S2120 Canister Vacuum features a Super Air Clean filter system that captures 99.95% of particles and a bag change indicator light that lets me know when it’s time to change the vacuum cleaner bags. No more shaking dust into the air and onto my clothes. No more sneezing and wheezing at the mere sight of a vacuum!

Now that I’ve discovered how easy and convenient vacuuming is with the Miele S2 Olympus Canister Vacuum S2120, cleaning up after the messies is a snap!

But – don’t just take my word for it. Why not try one out for yourself?

    We need to start looking for a new vacuum. I have one very large shaggy dog and need one that will pick up after her as well as us. Great Review!

  2. This is just the thing we’re looking for at the moment. Believe it or not we have a Dyson but its performance is very poor with two dogs in the house. I like the size of this one aswell.
