My review and perspective on model: S7210 vacuum cleaner This is the Miele S7210 Twist Upright Vacuum Cleaner Review please check the reviews page for a comparison of other vacuum cleaners.
Miele has made a name for themselves as sort of the BMW of vacuum cleaners. They’re not the best vacuum cleaners on the market, but they are quite comfortable to use. They do a better job than most vacuums in their price range, but a lot of their comfort features hold them back from being the best in any one category.
The closest thing I can come up with in terms of price range and cleaning power would be the Oreck Insight or Oreck Pilot. Each of them has their advantages and disadvantages. Neither of the Oreck’s has a built-in the hose, so you’d need a separate canister vacuum cleaner for jobs that require a hose.
The Miele S7210 Twist comes with a built-in hose to help you get those hard to reach places. The Miele S7210 Twist is noticeably heavier than either of the Oreck’s though.
The Miele S7210 Twist also has a separate drive motor for the brush roll so it can be completely turned off while still using the suction motor at full speed, the Oreck’s offer a low speed, but you cannot turn off the suction motor separately from the brush roll motor as they are driven by the same motor.
This would be an advantage for people with a lot of hardwood flooring in their homes. Suction and cleaning ability are about even between the machines, I did rate the Miele higher in cleaning ability only because of its advantage with hardwood floors, and because of the hose attachment.
All in all the Miele S7210 Twist is a great residential machine, but I would never recommend it for commercial use, where the Oreck’s could be used in either situation just as comfortably.
This is a bagged machine, which many people will find to be much more pleasant than the ever so common dirt cup style bagless vacuum cleaners today.
While the thought of never buying bags again has lured many people in, they soon discover that emptying a dirt cup is much messier than they ever wanted it to be, no matter what they do to reduce the dust cloud it always seems to escape and end up on everything.
There is one more thing about the Miele S7210 Twist that anyone considering a purchase should be aware of. All of the S7 lines use the same motors and basic design. The only real difference between this machine and the Miele S7 Jazz model is that the Jazz comes equipped with a headlight, and an activated carbon HEPA filter (can be purchased separately and equipped into the S7 Twist if you so desire).
The only reason I could see to spend the extra $50 to equip one into this vacuum is that Miele adds an extra layer that you won’t find in many vacuum cleaners with the activated carbon (which for those of you who know absorbs odors up to 10 times better than baking soda).
That extra layer of odor absorbing ability is great for people with pets, or who smoke. Lights on vacuum cleaners are great if you have inadequate lighting (like our upstairs living room that is lit only by lamps) or for dark corners, but many consider them a luxury at best so you weigh your options there with this vacuum vs. the Miele S7 Jazz.

Thorough yet gentle cleaning of deep-pile carpeting even when the depth of pile varies.
This is why Miele S7 offers an innovative automatic height adjustment feature. The key component is the electrobrush.
The electrobrush has a unique roller brush assembly (the roller brush is the agitator bar that. When spinning. Separates carpet fibers allowing the suction power of the vacuum to lift dust and debris lodged deep down in the carpeting) which is flexible and spring-loaded to adapt to different carpet heights and floor coverings.
