Recently listed among the Top 3 recommended canister vacuums by a leading consumer reporting magazine, the Miele S5281 Callisto Canister Vacuum Cleaner is equipped with everything you need to clean every spot in your home. This multi-purpose canister vacuum not only cleans medium- to deep-pile carpets and bare floors, but it also works well on sofa cushions, mattresses, and hard surfaces. In addition to providing a top-to-bottom deep clean, the Miele Callisto Vacuum Cleaner filters tiny particles out of your indoor air and contains them in the 100% sealed filtration system. Key features of this HEPA vacuum include quiet operation, a crushproof vacuum hose, and a built-in compartment for the attachment tools.
Swivel Casters: The Miele Callisto S5281 Canister Vacuum is equipped with three easy-roll casters that rotate on a 360-degree pivoting system. Made of durable rubber material, these casters provide sturdy support for the vacuum and make it easy for you to maneuver around corners and furniture while vacuuming.
Telescopic Extension Wand: With 18 adjustable height settings, the stainless steel telescopic wand provides easy specialized cleaning in hard-to-reach places throughout your home. The telescopic wand securely connects to the suction hose and the attachment tools using the square-locking system.
Ergonomic Control Handle: The ergonomic handle features a comfortable handgrip that helps you push the floor brush with ease. Located on the front of the handle, the standby power switch allows you to control the floor tools at your fingertips.
Parquet Floor Twister: Great for cleaning hardwood floors, tiles, and smooth surfaces, this parquet twister brush is made of natural bristles for a gentle application on bare floors. The parquet floor brush twists and turns at a 90-degree angle, providing seamless flexibility under tables, between chairs, and in tight corners.
Airflow Indicator: The airflow indicator screen, conveniently located on the front panel of the vacuum, will change from clear to orange when it is time to replace the dustbag or if there is an obstruction in the hose or one of the attachment tools.
Easily Transportable: The Miele S5 Callisto features a convenient carry handle and two parking station slots. The cleaning wand quickly snaps into the parking clip attachment on either side of the vacuum, so you can take a break from vacuuming without worrying about the vacuum cleaner tipping over or the hose swinging out of place.
Automatic Cord Rewind: Great for compact and tidy storage, the Miele S5281 Callisto Vacuum Cleaner features an automatic cord rewind button that draws the power cord back into the unit when the vacuum is not in use.
Overheat Protection: If the vacuum overheats or an article blocks the suction tube, the vacuum will automatically power off to prevent overheating.
Adjustable Electro Brush
The powerful Electro Plus brush features five height settings that you can adjust by simply tapping your foot on the button. With a 14-inch wide roller brush and a swivel neck, this floor tool provides a deep clean on thick carpets and performs well on plush carpets. The electro brush is powered by an independent motor that you can operate through the control switch on the ergonomic handle. This electrically driven floor brush provides superior suction on wall-to-wall carpets. Perfect for vacuuming large rooms, the electro brush effortlessly glides under furniture and swiftly swivels around corners to minimize your cleaning time.
Suction Power Control
The Miele Callisto Vacuum Cleaner features a rotary dial power selector that allows you to adjust the motor speed and suction power according to the surface you are cleaning. The rotary power selector includes six adjustable power levels with a user-friendly icon for each setting. Using the manual knob, you can increase or decrease the suction power from minimum to maximum for the following applications:
- Curtains and fabrics
- Upholstery and cushions
- Carpets and rugs
- Lightly soiled carpets
- Tiles and hard floors
- Light, energy-efiicient vacuuming with minimal sound
Active HEPA Filter
Designed to thoroughly clean various surfaces without polluting the air, the Miele S5 Callisto Vacuum not only cleans your home, but also treats the air that comes through and out of the vacuum. In addition to a pre-motor filter that protects the vacuum motor from collecting dirt, this Miele S5 vacuum cleaner also includes an Active HEPA Filter.
The HEPA filter captures 99.99% of dust mites, pet dander, pollen, and other particles as small as 0.3 microns and releases only clean air back into your space. Additionally, this sealed filter cartridge also features a layer of activated charcoal for odor control. The Generally Activated Charcoal material absorbs food and pet odors and deodorizes foul smells in the dustbag.
For more effective odor control, you can swap out the Active HEPA Filter with Miele's Active Air Clean Filter (sold separately). This filter blends the Air Clean filtration technology with an activated charcoal cassette to absorb pet and household odors better than the Active HEPA Exhaust Filter. The Active Air Clean Filter also captures and retains 99.5% of allergen particles as small as 0.5 microns.
Leak-Proof Vacuum Chamber
Many vacuum cleaners pick up loads of dirt and debris off of your floors and upholstery only to distribute tiny particles back into your indoor air through the exhaust vent or out of the dustbag opening. The Miele Callisto Vacuum Cleaner vacuum cleaner uses an AirClean FilterBag, which features self-locking technology.
When the vacuum door is opened, the dustbag automatically snaps closed, making it impossible for captured debris particles to be released back into your home. The Auto-Seal filter bag features a quick-snap hook that makes it easy to lift the bag out of the vacuum chamber and easily discard the dustbag without getting dirt on your hands or distributing dust particles back into the air.
The dustbag is made of 9 layers of electrostatically charged woven fibers that effectively capture and contain dirt, dust, and debris particles. Each AirClean Filter Bag holds 4.76 quarts of collected debris. Type G/N replacement dustbag packs (sold separately) include four dustbags, a replacement pre-motor filter, and an exhaust filter.
Integrated Attachment Tools
The Miele Callisto S5281 Canister Vacuum Cleaner contains a convenient compartment on the front panel that stores the dusting brush, crevice tool, and turbo nozzle. The onboard tools are easily accessible and are very useful when transporting the vacuum up and down the stairs or from room to room. By keeping these integrated accessories on hand, you can easily transition from vacuuming your floors to cleaning upholstery and sofa cushions with no hassle. Simply press the compartment lid release button, remove the tool you need to use, and attach it to the telescopic wand for quick above-floor cleaning. Attachment tools include:
Dusting Brush – The dusting brush easily removes visible dust on ceiling fans, shelves, and window blinds. Made of natural bristles, the dusting brush also twists in varying angles so you can easily dust crown moldings, mantels, fan blades, bookshelves, and light fixtures.
Crevice Tool – The crevice tool removes stubborn dirt and crumbs from hard-to-reach areas such as under cabinets, between appliances, and inside air vents. This narrow tool is also great for cleaning in between sofa cushions and staircase edges.
Upholstery Nozzle – The upholstery nozzle cleans sofa cushions and fabrics, and it features two lint catcher strips that grab hair strands and lint. This handy tool provides a gentle, yet thorough clean on curtains, carpeted stairs, and even mattresses.
