Upright vacuums seem to have taken over the market, but there’s still something to be said for a great canister vacuum, such as the Miele Compact C2 Electro+. This model is lightweight and compact, making it easy to tow along behind you while cleaning. Plus, its bagged design features a HEPA filter, ensuring it captures more than 99.9% of allergens that might be lurking on your floors.
This canister vacuum is powered by a 1,200-watt motor, and it offers six suction settings for cleaning carpet, tile, upholstery, curtains, and more. Plus, its motor-driven floorhead has a five-level height adjustment. The vacuum comes with several accessories, including a parquet brush cleaner head for hard floors, dusting brush, upholstery tool, and crevice tool, which our tester says are simple but thoughtfully designed.
