Buy A Bagless Canister Vacuum Online

Updated on January 9, 2010

Bagless canister vacuum cleaners are becoming more popular today. Canister vacuums are excellent cleaners and are usually light in weight. One of the advantages with this type of vacuum is the money saved each year with not needing to purchase and keep vacuum bags on hand. A bagless canister only needs to be emptied when the dust container indicates its full and can then be used again. Vacuums that use bags tend to clog often with dirt and hair and this is less likely with bagless canister models. Bagless vacuums are also much better for those that suffer with allergies. Canister vacuums tend to work better on hard surface floors. They are also great on upholstery and stairs. The canister vacuum is easier to use with attachments than upright models.

Miele Callisto Galaxy Series

The Miele S5280 Callisto Galaxy Series Canister Vacuum Cleaner's impressive features include a mid-size power-brush, deluxe ergonomic handle, sealed system with active Miele HEPA filter, 4.76 quart Intensive Clean Plus Dust-cup, electric hose/SES119 with deluxe handle, stainless steel telescopic wand, dust brush, upholstery brush, crevice tool, Parquet floor brush, electric power brush, 29.5 ft. operating radius, safety shut-off on over-heating, space saving storage bracket on each side of the canister, and special sound insulation system for quiet operation. The vacuum has a HEPA washable filter. This is also a money-saver since the filter is a reusable one. Miele offers a seven year suction motor warranty on all their vacuum cleaners and a one year non-wearing component warranty. This bagless canister vacuum cleaner weighs a mere 16 pounds making it easy to maneuver around any home as well as handle well when vacuuming stairs and carrying up and down to additional levels in your home. The vacuum can be purchased for around $799.00.

Out of the approximate 150 reviews posted on Amazon referring to the Miele Callisto Galaxy, 145 of these gave the cleaner a five star rating. The remaining five reviews were rated with 4 stars however the 1 star deduction had nothing to do the vacuum but instead with issues involving the delivery service; UPS and USPS to be specific.

The cleaner is especially great with medium to high pile carpeting and smooth floors. A very impressive feature is the suction control rotary dial which allows the user to either increase or decrease the level of suction when vacuuming such as throw rugs to avoid them from being eaten up or damaged. Its Mieles 1200 watt Vortex motor system is an impressive feature which sets Miele apart from other comparable bagless canister vacuums.               

Dyson Canister Vacuums

The Dyson DC22 Turbinehead Canister Bagless Vacuum designed and invented by James Dyson is a comparable vacuum to the Mieles Callista Galaxy. Dysons are known for not losing their suction. This is done by centrifugal force. This divides incoming air of the machine into multiple smaller cyclones and is able to achieve considerable more function. Dysons come with a 5 year warranty and an offer to replace any vacuum for the time you own it should it loose its suction power.

The Dyson DC22 Bagless Canister vacuum features a large round dusting brush, stair tool, crevice tool, and hardwood floor turbine head. The turbine brush bar can be turned off for hardwood floors and delicate rugs. The unit weighs 18 pounds and the cord is 16'long. The cord wraps tightly around the body of the canister. This bagless canister is excellent with picking up pet hair. Many consumers purchase this vacuum specifically for its pet hair ability. The vacuum costs right around $699.00 Of the approximate 80 Amazon reviews, 75 rated the canister vacuum with five stars. The remaining 5 consumers rated it with 4 stars.


Its a good idea to try the vacuum cleaner. Locate a vacuum store or
distributor in your area for Miele or Dyson and stop in to try the cleaners
and to speak with a representative to answer any questions you might have
before making your final decision on bagless canister vacuum cleaners.

      Hi! I do agree with you that bagless canister vacuum cleaners are becoming more popular today. Bags are not that cheap to replace in the long term.

      Gathered a lot of information from this page. Even the pricing can be seen at a glance. Now, in a much better position to decide which vacuum to buy. Very informative.
