The Miele Cat and Dog cylinder vacuum cleaner lives up to its name and is excellent at removing pet hair. And, like most Miele vacs, this Best Buy is much more than just a one-hit wonder, giving a great performance right across the board.
The Turbo 5000 removes impressive amounts of dirt from hard floors, reaching deep into crevices so there's nowhere for dust to hide.
It's good on carpets, and the head gets close to the skirting boards so you can clean right up to the edges of your rooms.
Cylinder cleaners often struggle to remove pet hair, but this model's turbo brush head picks up plenty.
Great choice for pet owners
The filter works really well, trapping dust and allergens inside the machine. This model is therefore a great choice for pet lovers and those with allergies.
