  • Review Price: £250

The Miele Compact C2 Cat & Dog Powerline has a rather hefty name, but it isn’t a hefty vacuum. At 4.7kg, it’s one of the lightest corded vacuums we’ve tested, but you don’t have to suffer any compromises. This pet specialist has an efficient turbobrush head that cleans pet hair brilliantly, and even includes a charcoal odour filter to reduce pet odours.

It’s an excellent all-round cleaner on all floors and its well-designed cleaner heads get right into the awkward corners. The 6.5m cable is a little on the short side, but it’s the only serious complaint we have about this excellent vacuum cleaner.
