The Miele s558i of the s500i series vacuum cleaners. It has two main variations from the Silver Moon, the most noticeable of which is the Red Velvet textured finish, similar to the more scratch resistant finish found on the Artico and Aluminium. Secondly, it is packaged with, and serves to introduce, Miele's innovative and improved SEB 236 Power Nozzle. This nozzle has been years in development and has many enhanced features. The nozzle is slightly larger than the older SEB 224 and 226 nozzles, and significantly larger than the SEB 213/217 nozzles. Yet it combines the variable height feature and aggressiveness of the 224/226 with the flexibility and maneuverability of the 213/217 series. Additionally, it is equipped with a very powerful head light to better assist with finding dirt that might otherwise not be noticed. As with the Silver Moon, the electronic controls for both the machine and the power nozzle, as well as power adjustment, are at one's fingertips, located in the handle of its hose. There is no longer any need to bend over to change settings as one moves from the carpets to bare floors and onward to furniture, drapes and curtains. All of the electrical connections are integrated into the wand and hose leaving no external or visible wires.
Because the control for the power nozzle is located in the hose handle, one can move from carpet to bare floor by simply turning off the power nozzle, allowing it to clean bare floors at the flip of a switch. Additionally, a softer "parquet" floor tool comes with the machine for use on more delicate flooring surfaces. A dusting brush, crevice and upholstery tools store under the push button tool lid.
Because the hose and wheels all rotate a full 360 degrees the vacuum moves easily in any direction, without tipping over, and the wheels are a soft rubber so they will not mark floors. The cord winder has an added feature known as "auto-reverse." When the user activates the "auto-reverse" function, the cord releases from the machine as it is pulled away from the outlet and rewinds back as the vacuum returns. The result is no excess cord on the floor while vacuuming. The machine will operate in a "stand-by" mode, which allows it to be turned off as one "parks" the wands and floor brush on the machine. Removing the wands from their "park" position then restarts the unit automatically. The Miele active charcoal HEPA filter is already installed and with its completely sealed system, 99.97% of all particles as small as 0.3 microns are retained within the unit, not returned to the air within your home. The combination of design and features of the "Red Velvet" make this machine the other crème de la crème of the Miele s500i series vacuum cleaners.
