Miele S5280 Pisces Vacuum Cleaner Description

miele callisto vacuum review

On the surface, all Miele canister vacuums can appear to be very similar.  Other than the color, it can be hard to tell one apart from the next. So, what features does the Miele Pisces S5280 set it apart from other Miele vacuums?

The Miele Pisces S5280 is the least expensive of the S5 line of vacuums, and this is because it doesn't come with a deep cleaning, powered floor tool. Instead, it includes a STB205 Air Turbobrush which is powered by the vacuum's suction only. This often eliminates the Pisces from consideration among those looking for a vacuum to clean thick carpeting. Other than this, the Pisces is virtually identical to the other models. You can upgrade the S5280 to accept powered floor tools, but if this is your plan, it will be less expensive in the long run to purchase a model that comes pre-equipped with the powered tool you need.

Like all S5 vacuums the Pisces comes with features such as an electronic telescopic wand, HEPA filter, parquet tool (for hardwood floors), quiet operation, and more.

  • Parquet Floor Tool

  • Dusting Brush
  • Mattress Tool
  • Crevice tool
  • Electronic Telescopic Wand
  • 1200 Watt Vortex Motor

Sample Customer Reviews

Positive Customer Reviews

This is the first vacuum cleaner that I can honestly say that I love. It's extremely light-weight and has exceptional power. I have hardwood floors and up to 5 dogs in my home at any time. If you have carpeting, you might want to consider a Miele that comes with a powered floor tool 
-- Jan

This is a great vacuum cleaner. I purchased the Miele Pisces because we moved into a new home and I no longer have long shag carpet. With a carpet like this, you want a powered floor tool. But without thick carpet, the Pisces is great.  You still get all the other features like HEPA filter and quiet operation.
-- Michelle

Negative Customer Reviews

I find the turbo brush on the Miele Pisces S5280 to be hard to use. You really need to put a lot of muscle into pushign it around since it's so powerful.

The Miele Pisces S5280 is a great choice for anyone looking for a top of the line vacuum and doesn't need the deep cleaning features that come with the powered floor tools that are available in other Miele models.
