A workhorse for the home...
May 23, 2013
We have owned our callisto from December of 2009. After living in Germany for just over a year, and having use of a Miele there, I knew that it would be well worth the initial cost of purchase. We have a long-haired dog and fluffy cat, both of whom love to stretch out on the furniture and rugs. Our callisto is adept at clearing up the debris our animals invariably leave behind! This miele model is a bit cumbersome in terms of storage, but I actually deconstruct it weekly (remove hose from canister, fittings, etc) in order to do the "once over" that our petite home requires.
The bags are costly, and we tend to go through one box every two months. Our model has not needed maintenance as of yet, as opposed to both Kenmore and Dyson models that needed attention within the two-year margin.
Over all, I would heartily encourage you to be bold and take a leap of faith with Miele. I doubt you'll be disappointed!
Best of luck to all... Songbird

This is the 3rd vacuum I've had in 40 years of marriage and the first Miele. I decided to try the Miele after using one for a year while living in Europe. It was clumsy but it was an old model that worked very well. My Callisto does a great job vacuuming but it's still clumsy to attach the pieces and handling the "in"flexible hose is like wrestling a boa constrictor. The power head is too big to fit under most furniture or do the stairs. The floor attachment flips around so doing the stairs is a challenge keeping the canister balanced in front of me and holding the floor attachment in my hand without the wand. The canister is quite heavy and so is the power attachment so I'm pooped by the time I'm finished doing the house from top to bottom. Reviewers on other sites claim the cord is too short and the capacity of the bags is too small but I have no complaints with either. I just feel that it should be easier to handle.
Pros: does a very good cleaning job
Cons: Difficult to Use, Weight
