Miele Vacuums- Are they really that good
Normally, I buy those inexpensive vacuums that only last a few years before I need to buy a new one.
But, I saw a Miele Delphi vacuum on sale at a price where I'm seriously considering buying my first expensive vacuum. But, I've got a couple of questions first.
1) What am I giving up and gaining by switching from an upright to a canister?
The Miele Delphi is a canister, but I've grown up using an upright.
2) Do you think I should still buy the Delphi if it doesn't come with its attachments? Do you really use your attachment tools?
The only reason its on sale is because its missing its attachment tools- dusting brush, upholstery tool and crevice nozzle. Otherwise, I don't think Mieles go on sale.
Or, will generic attachment tools work on a Miele?
3) How good is the airflow on Miele vacuums?
From what I've read so far, it seems like its the airflow and not the suction that's really crucial to a good vacuum. So, something like a Dyson with good suction might not be as good as people think if its airflow isn't that good.
4) How often do you need to replace the bags on a Miele cannister? Since they're smaller than uprights, it'd seem like they wouldn't hold as much and so you'd need to buy new bags more often.
Those Miele bags seem expensive to me, and I'd hate to buy new bags all the time.
