A studious return to school for Miele, which unveils several new features for the occasion: the Boost CX1 and the Scout RX3. The first is a new bagless canister vacuum cleaner for fans of manual cleaning, but the firm does not forget the less fond of household chores since the Scout RX3 comes to him, complete its range of robot vacuums.
New brushes and new app for the Scout RX3
On the Scout RX3 side, Miele offers a slight revision of the Scout RX2. The design remains very close to the old model, but the brushes have been changed. A new shape is evoked for the main one, which also sees its speed of rotation increased, when the side brushes are enriched with new arms and offers 20 in total. What increase, according to Miele, cleaning performance by 25% compared to previous generations, which we find on the other hand the navigation system based on 3D cameras on the front.
The Scout RX3 also gains an AirClean filter supposed to retain more than 99.98% of fine particles, but the biggest novelty seems to be more to be found on the side of the application. Miele says he has developed a brand new one “more intuitive and precise”, and in particular evokes the possibility of orienting the robot on the map of the house. It must of course also make it possible to identify the parts in order to exclude or promote them during cleaning, to program regular cycles or to know the state of the robot. There is also the Home Vision function allowing access to the video stream of the on-board cameras, but it is reserved for the RX3 Home Vision HD version.
Announced at a price of 749.99 €, the latter also promises an autonomy of 120 min, which it is however possible also to find on the RX3 Runner at 699.99 €. On the other hand, it will be necessary to be satisfied with an autonomy of 60 min with the Scout RX3 quite short, sold for € 669.99. All in all, high prices for simple robot vacuums, without a mop or automatic emptying.
A compact version of the Blizzard CX1
With the Boost CX1, Miele says it is offering its most compact bagless canister vacuum. A low weight is also mentioned, as well as an “ergonomic” handle for easy storage. Of course, this format should also be appreciated during the aspiration. The Boost CX1 also benefits from two large wheels associated with a 360 ° rotating caster to follow the user, as well as a Trackdrive technology supposed to avoid him falls and collisions… without Miele really explaining how.
As for the aspiration, precisely, the manufacturer promises an exceptional performance on all types of soil with its Vortex technology… which we had however a little disappointed during our test of the Blizzard CX1. So let’s hope that it has been improved. In all cases, four power levels are offered here, and the Boost CX1 collects dirt in a collector fitted with a more or less efficient fine dust filter, the HEPA being mentioned for certain versions only. A motor filter is also planned, and a system called Click 2 Open should facilitate access to the collector to empty and clean it – a small brush is also integrated on the side of the vacuum cleaner.
The Boost CX1 will be priced at € 299.99 in its simplest version. Parquet and Cat & Dog versions will also be offered, respectively expected at € 339.99 and € 379.99. Both benefit from the HEPA filter mentioned earlier, but there is a special parquet brush with the first while the second comes with a turbo brush (motorized).
