No daily routine can be as tough as a Miele product test: Before Miele vacuum cleaners go into production they must withstand extreme stress in our test laboratory. 
The hose test: So resilient! 
Miele suction hoses are twisted, flexed and stretched with a 11 lb weight 120,000 times in the laboratory. You can pull your Miele vacuum cleaner along behind you without giving it a second thought.  You can pull your Miele vacuum cleaner along behind you without giving it a second thought. 
The motor endurance test: So long-lasting! 
We demand top performance from our vacuum cleaners from the first to the last day: Miele motors must demonstrate their quality during an intense endurance test including constantly switching them on and off. 
The jamb-and-threshold test: So robust! 
In real life a Miele vacuum cleaner must endure many door thresholds and impacts – in this test 16,500 times in a row. This is where Miele casings and swivel castors prove their resilience. 
The wire rewind test: So reliable!
Miele mains wires are unwound and rewound again more than 10,000 times in our test apparatus. Only then are we satisfied – and completely sure that everything will also work perfectly for you in your home. 
The floorhead test: So durable!
A Miele floorhead must cover a distance of 1243 miles on various floor coverings – that is as far as from Berlin to Paris and back. In the process it climbs over a carpet-covered door threshold 60,000 times. 
The handle test: So sturdy! 
Miele vacuum cleaners' handles are loaded with 11 lb weights and then raised and lowered 120,000 times. The handle must withstand the permanent effect of being lifted without being damaged. 
1 Applies to corded vacuum cleaner with an average use of 45 minutes per week at maximum suction power.
