Miele Blizzard CX1 Features and Specifications

Common features of Miele Blizzard CX1 canister vacuums include:

- large operating radius thanks to long power cable, flexible hose and the cleaning wand. Power cord is 21.5 feet (~6.5 m) long and thanks to the flexible cleaning hose and telescopic wand, Miele Blizzard CX1 vacuum has 33 feet (~10 m) long cleaning radius.

- park system for vacuuming breaks allows the user to quickly and securely place the wand by hooking the floor cleaning head onto the side of the canister.

- four swivel castors swivel easily throughout the 360°, allowing the unit to be both stable and very maneuverable.

- automatic power cord rewind system stores the power cable into the unit via foot control button.

- wand handle is comfortable and ergonomically design. Handle differs between models, depending on the main cleaning foot type. Also, handles feature anti-static conductor, to prevent buildup of static charge.

comfort clean

- Miele Blizzard CX1 canisters also feature automatic self-cleaning air filters - onboard sensors measure the air throughput of the 'GORE CleanStream' fine dust filter and automatically activate the so-called 'ComfortClean' self-cleaning function as required. This function can be activated manually, too.

- dirt bin can be quickly emptied out of the bottom, directly into the trash can. Due to the high air velocity, dust and coarse dirt is collected in separate containers - if you are looking for lost socks, smaller toys etc ... You know where to look :)

- to prevent power lines from overload, main suction motor feature gentle start - when switched on, it 'slowly' increases the power to the selected power level. Also, if internal temperature increases, thermal protection shuts off the units in order to prevent any damage.

- Miele Blizzard CX1 canisters feature so-called Vortex technology which produces an air flow velocity of more than 62 mph (100 km/h, 27.8 m/s), enabling the Blizzard CX1 units to do thorough cleaning regardless of the surface or dirt type, using appropriate cleaning tool.

Their similarities and differences are given in the following table:

Amazon Link Miele Blizzard CX1 Cat & Dog Miele Blizzard CX1 Electro+ - Miele Blizzard CX1 PureSuction Miele Blizzard CX1 TurboTeam

Note: Amazon links open in the new windows, feel free to check them for most up-to-date prices and offers.

 Main difference between these models are:

- Miele Blizzard CX1 Cat&Dog, Eelctro+ and HomeCare models are 'electro' models, featuring 'electro-telescopic wand' and 'electro-brush socket', enabling them to use electric motorized cleaning tools.

- Miele Blizzard CX1 PureSuction and TurboTeam models are 'classic' bagless, canister vacuums, featuring 'eco comfort handle with integrated dusting brush' and 'comfort telescopic wand'. They don't come with and they don't support the use of electric motorized cleaning tools.

- Miele Blizzard CX1 Cat&Dog, Eelctro+, HomeCare and TurboTeam feature HEPA AirClean Lifetime air filter, while Miele Blizzard CX1 PureSuction comes with 'Hygiene Lifetime Air filter'. Miele Blizzard CX1 PureSuction has very good air filtration, however other models have even better air filtration - true HEPA air filtration, which is very important for people with asthma and allergies.

For the list of available cleaning attachments, please check the table. If required, cleaning attachments and tools can be ordered as required, just be aware that PureSuction and TurboTeam models don't support 'electro' cleaning tools.

Note: Miele Blizzard CX1 canister vacuums are easy to use canisters, but just to be sure, when they arrive, read the manual thoroughly.

Miele Blizzard CX1 Cat&Dog features excellent air filtration and suction, and thanks to flexible cleaning hose and telescopic wand, it is also suitable for cleaning elevated surfaces, too.
