If you’re tackling tile flooring, then the best vacuum for tile floors is arguably the Miele Blizzard CX1. No, this isn’t a fridge! It’s specifically designed to provide consistent, powerful suction on bare floors of any kind, and low pile carpeting alike. It accomplishes this through the combination of 1200W of suction power and vortex technology. For more options, check out this best vacuum cleaner list.

Why We Like It – Miele Blizzard CX1

Packed full of features and a bagless design, the Miele Blizzard CX1 mastered the art of sucking up dirt and dust alike, trapping it inside its canister, and safely disposing of it, without dusting your face. One could argue it’s a top-rated canister vacuum to have.

  • 1200W of suction power w/ vortex technology
  • Excellent on bare floors & low pile carpeting
  • Hygienic emptying
  • A bit heavy at 22.5 lbs
  • Pricey


What do 1200 watts of suction power look like? As the vacuum sucks up dirt and fine dust, it’s picking up so much debris that the HEPA filter is able to filter 99.99% of particles. This especially comes in handy when using the dusting brush and turbo brush. More importantly, you have four suction setting options, so you’ll always have the power you need.

Speed & Efficiency

But how efficient is the Miele Blizzard CX1 Cat Dog Vacuum? Cleaning performance obviously helps speed, as does its 33-foot cleaning radius. But if you wanted to see some excellent speed and efficiency, the Dyson V11 Vacuum is hard to argue with.

Bin Capacity & Maintenance

The Miele Blizzard CX1 has a bagless design, and instead uses a dirt cup; it’s a healthy 0.52 gallons. Maintenance is surprisingly low for bagless vacuums, considering its Gore Cleanstream exhaust filter captures fine dust for a living and still operates well. When comparing canister vs upright vacuums, you maneuver them in different ways, but their larger dust bin capacities are great features.

There’s additional features that the Miele bagless vacuum cleaner incorporates that add some surprising durability. For starters, the parquet Twister floorhead uses soft bristles to target delicate flooring and prevent scratching. It also incorporates a comfort handle for obvious reasons.


Picking up one of these Miele vacuums is going to set you back a somewhat steep $499. It’s not uncommon for bagless vacuums to have a higher price than bagged vacuums, due to their bagless design. In return, you never have to buy bags again, and you also get a bunch of tools, like an upholstery nozzle, crevice tool, and crevice nozzle. In other words: it’s a great deal. An equally amazing deal is the Dyson Cyclone V10 Absolute Vacuum or a Hoover Linx if budget is an issue.

Miele Blizzard CX1 Wrap Up

Not even the price would have us turn away from the Miele Blizzard CX1; its performance and design are simply too good to pass on. That 1200W of suction power and vortex technology work exquisitely on bare floors and carpets alike, so you get the best of both worlds. And with hygienic emptying, dust doesn’t fly in your face when emptying.
