Who should buy Miele Triflex HX1 Cat & Dog

  • The Miele Triflex HX1 Cat & Dog has a trifex feature, which is great for those who don't know whether they want an upright vacuum that can stand on its own, or a stick vacuum that has a dust bin on the upper part; this has both.
  • As the name suggests, the Miele Triflex HX1 Cat & Dog is suitable for those who have cats and dogs, because its mini electric brush can efficiently pick up pet hairs.
  • The Miele Triflex HX1 Cat & Dog can automatically adjust the suction power to suit the floor type, making it a great choice for those who have both carpets and hard floors in their homes.

Who should NOT buy Miele Triflex HX1 Cat & Dog

  • If you live in a large house, and you don’t like to frequently empty the dust bin while cleaning, the Miele Triflex HX1 Cat & Dog might not be a great option because it has a smaller dust bin compared to other cordless vacuums like the Samsung Jet 75 Complete VS20T7536T5/AA, with its 0.8L dust bin, or the Dyson Cyclone V11 Animal+, with a 0.76L dust bin.
  • The Miele Triflex HX1 Cat & Dog is quite expensive, making it unsuitable for those who are on a tight budget. There are other cordless vacuums that lack some of the advanced features, but have a more affordable price, such as the Shark Anti Hair Wrap IZ201UKT, and the Philips FC6826/01.

Verdict

This is our verdict of the Miele Triflex HX1 Cat & Dog based on several hours of research of reviews from both experts and users.
Updated 22-03-2022

The Miele Triflex HX1 Cat & Dog is a top-notch cordless vacuum equipped with plenty of advanced features, such as the Triflex, automatic adjustment of suction power, and various cleaning attachments that make cleaning easier and more convenient.

The triflex or 3-in-1 feature of the Miele Triflex HX1 Cat & Dog allows you to turn the cordless vacuum into an upright, stick, or handheld vacuum. When it is upright, the dust bin is on the bottom, allowing the vacuum to stand on its own, in case you need to step away from it while cleaning. At 8lbs, the Miele Triflex HX1 is heavier than other cordless vacuums, but since the weight of the dust bin is closer to the ground, it makes it easier to carry around.

Aside from the upright vacuum, you can also turn the Miele Triflex HX1 into a stick vacuum like the Dyson models. This mode places the dust bin on the upper part of the vacuum, near the handle, allowing you to clean under low-lying furniture.
The handheld vacuum is for cleaning furniture, or other areas apart from the floor, such as the car or the sofa. In this mode, you can use additional accessories like the crevice nozzle, dusting brush, upholstery nozzle, and mini electric brush. The mini electric brush, in particular, is great for removing pet hairs from soft surfaces such as the sofa, bed, and pillows.

The Miele Triflex HX1 Cat & Dog can automatically adjust its suction power to suit the type of floor you are vacuuming. However, this feature only works on medium and high suction power. It is highly convenient for those who have both carpets and hard floors in their home.

On the lowest suction power, the Miele Triflex HX1 Cat & Dog has a maximum battery life of 60 minutes, which is the average among cordless vacuums. On maximum suction power, it can clean for a maximum of 16 minutes, which should be enough to clean your house. For comparison, the Dyson V15 Detect Absolute is more expensive, but lasts for only 8 minutes on maximum suction mode.

If you live in a large house, and the battery life is insufficient, you can purchase an extra battery. The Miele Triflex HX1 Cat & Dog has a detachable battery, so you can replace it with a fully charged one when it runs out, and continue with your cleaning. If you do not want to buy a separate battery, you can check out the more expensive Triflex HX1, which already comes with two detachable batteries.

A downside of the Miele Triflex HX1 is its small dust bin, with a capacity of only 0.5L. If you live in a large house, you will have to empty it out quite frequently.

Overall, the Miele Triflex HX1 Cat & Dog is a powerful cordless vacuum, with excellent features, that make it an absolutely worthwhile investment.
