A Miele vacuum cleaner – as reported by the company – is the current test winner in the bagless vacuum cleaner category for Stiftung Warentest (StiWa). The Blizzard CX1 Efficiency EcoLine was quality-rated “Good” with a mark of 2.2 on a scale of 1 to 5. Overall, StiWa tested 13 cylinder vacuum cleaners with a rating of up to 800 W, including 8 models with dustbags and 5 without dustbags, in the February edition of their “test” magazine. The Miele Blizzard CX1 convinced testers above all by virtue of the “good overall package” it represented. “And, indeed, Miele’s test winner achieved top places in all relevant categories – the company explained -. In the core ‘Suction‘ discipline, StiWa rates the results as ‘Good’ (2.3). ‘Removes coarse soil and cleans crannies and upholstery very well …’, is what is written in the magazine. And, the Blizzard also netted top marks in the comparison of handling and durability. Environmental properties were rated ‘Good’ (1.8) by StiWa”.
