6
Warning and Safety instructions
Safety with children
~ Young children must not be allowed to use this appliance.
~ Older children may only use the appliance when its operation has
been clearly explained to them and they are able to use it safely,
recognising the dangers of misuse.
~ Cleaning work may only be carried out by older children under

7
Warning and Safety instructions
Technical safety
~ Repairs and other work by unqualified persons could be
dangerous. Installation, maintenance work and repairs to electrical
appliances must only be carried out by a Miele approved service
technician.
~ A damaged appliance is dangerous. Check it for any visible
damage. Never install or attempt to use a damaged appliance.
~ Reliable and safe operation of this oven can only be assured if it
has been connected to the mains electricity supply.
~ The electrical safety of this appliance can only be guaranteed
when continuity is complete between it and an effective earthing
system. It is most important that this basic safety requirement is
present and tested regularly and, where there is any doubt, the
household wiring system should be inspected by a qualified
electrician.
~ Before connecting the appliance to the mains supply, make sure
that the rating on the data plate (voltage and frequency)
corresponds to that of the household supply. This data must
correspond in order to avoid risk of damage to the appliance.
Consult a qualified electrician if in any doubt.
~ Do not connect the appliance to the mains electricity supply by a
multi-socket unit or an extension lead. These do not guarantee the
required safety of the appliance (e.g. danger of overheating).
~ For safety reasons, this appliance may only be used when it has
been built in.
~ This oven must not be installed and operated in mobile
installations (e.g. on a ship).
8
Warning and Safety instructions
~ Tampering with electrical connections or components and
mechanical parts is highly dangerous to the user and can cause
operational faults.
Do not open the outer casing of the appliance.
~ The manufacturer's warranty will be invalidated if the appliance is
not repaired by a Miele approved service technician.
~ Faulty components must only be replaced by genuine Miele
spare parts. The manufacturer can only guarantee the safety of the
appliance when Miele replacement parts are used.
~ If the oven is delivered without a connection cable, or if the
connection cable supplied is damaged, a special connection cable
must installed by a Miele approved service technician (see
"Electrical connection").
~ During installation, maintenance and repair work, the appliance
must be disconnected from the mains electricity supply, e.g. if the
oven lighting is faulty (see "Problem solving guide").
It is only completely isolated from the electricity supply when:
– it is switched off at the mains circuit breaker, or
– it is switched off at the wall socket and the plug is withdrawn from
the socket.
Do not pull the mains connection cable but the mains plug to
disconnect your appliance from the mains electricity supply.
9
Warning and Safety instructions
~ For the oven to function correctly, it requires a sufficient intake of
cool air. Ensure the intake of cool air to the oven is not impaired
(e.g. due to the installation of insulation material inside the housing
unit). Furthermore, the incoming cool air must not be excessively
heated by other heat sources (e.g. fuel furnaces).
~ If the oven is installed behind a furniture door, do not close the
door while the oven is in operation. Heat and moisture would build
up behind a closed furniture door, potentially causing damage to the
oven, the furniture unit and the flooring. Wait until the oven has
cooled down completely before closing the furniture door.
10
Warning and Safety instructions
Correct use
, Danger of burning!
The oven becomes hot when in use.
Exercise care when handling food and trays so as not to burn
yourself on heating elements, the walls of the oven, shelf runners,
trays and hot food itself.
Use oven gloves when placing food in the oven, turning or
removing it and when adjusting oven shelves etc. in a hot oven.
~ Do not use the oven to heat up the room.
Due to the high temperatures radiated, objects left near the
appliance could catch fire.
~ Never leave the appliance unattended when cooking with oil or
fats as these are a fire hazard if allowed to overheat.
Do not attempt to extinguish oil or fat fires with water.
Switch off the oven and smother the flames by keeping the oven
door closed.
~ Make sure that you keep to the recommended grilling times when
using grilling functions.
Excessively long grilling times can lead to food drying out and
burning or could even cause the food to catch fire.
11
Warning and Safety instructions
~ Some foods dry out very quickly and can be ignited by high
grilling temperatures. Do not use grilling functions for crisping rolls
or bread or to dry flowers or herbs. Instead use Fan Plus U or
Conventional Heat V.
~ If using alcohol in your recipes, please be aware that high
temperatures can cause the alcohol to vaporise and even to ignite
on the hot heating elements.
~ When residual heat is used to keep food warm, the high level of
humidity and condensation can cause corrosion in the oven. The
control panel, worktop or furniture unit may also be damaged.
Do not switch the oven off completely while food is inside it, but
select the lowest possible temperature for the oven function you are
using. This will ensure the fan will automatically continue to run.
~ Cover any food which is left in the oven to be kept hot, as
moisture in the food could lead to corrosion damage in the oven.
This also prevents the food from drying out.
~ Never cover the floor of the oven with aluminium foil, or place
oven dishes, pans, saucepans or trays directly onto the floor of the
oven.
This would cause concentrations of heat which could cause damage
to the floor of the oven.
~ When storing pots or pans in the oven, do not slide them across
the floor of the oven as this will damage the enamel coating.
12
Warning and Safety instructions
~ Never pour cold water onto hot surfaces in a hot oven.
The steam created could cause serious burns or scalding and the
sudden change in temperature can damage the enamel in the oven.
~ It is important that the heat is allowed to spread evenly
throughout the food being cooked. This can be achieved by stirring
and/or turning the food.
~ Plastic containers, which are not heat-resistant, melt and may
ignite at high temperatures and can damage the oven.
Use only plastic containers that are indicated by the manufacturer
as being suitable for use in ovens.
~ Do not use the appliance to heat up or bottle food in sealed jars
and tins.
Pressure will build up inside them and they can explode causing
damage to the appliance, as well as the risk of injury and scalding.
~ Do not leave the oven door open unnecessarily as someone may
trip over it or be injured by it.
~ The oven door can support a maximum load of 15 kg.
Do not lean or sit on an open oven door, or place heavy items on it.
Also make sure that nothing can get trapped between the door and
the oven cavity. This could damage the oven.
13
Warning and Safety instructions
Cleaning and care
~ Do not use a steam cleaning appliance to clean this oven.
Pressurised steam could reach the electrical components and
cause a short circuit.
~ Scratches on the door glass can result in the glass breaking.
Do not use abrasive cleaners, hard sponges, brushes or sharp
metal tools to clean the door glass.
~ The shelf runners can be removed for cleaning purposes (see
"Cleaning and care").
Ensure they are correctly fitted after cleaning and never operate the
oven without the shelf runners fitted.
~ The catalytic enamelled back panel can be removed for cleaning
purposes (see "Cleaning and care").
Ensure it is correctly fitted after cleaning and never operate the
oven without the back panel fitted.
14
Warning and Safety instructions
Accessories
~ Use only genuine original Miele spare parts. If spare parts or
accessories from other manufacturers are used, the warranty will be
invalidated, and Miele cannot accept liability.
~ If you have a Miele HUB 5000-M/HUB 5001-M/HUB 5000-XL oven
dish, do not place it on shelf level 1.
This would damage the floor of the oven. The very small gap
between the bottom of the dish and the oven floor would cause a
build-up of heat and could cause the enamel to crack or chip.
Do not place Miele oven dishes on the top rail of shelf level 1 as they
will not be secured in this position by the anti-tip safety notches on
the sides of the dishes.
Instead, use shelf level 2 for these oven dishes.
15
Caring for the environment
Disposal of the packing
material
Disposing of your old
appliance
The transport and protective packing
has been selected from materials which
are environmentally friendly for disposal
and can normally be recycled.
Recycling the packaging reduces the
use of raw materials in the
manufacturing process and also
reduces the amount of waste in landfill
sites.
Rather than just throwing these
materials away, please ensure they are
offered for recycling.
Ensure that any plastic wrappings,
bags, etc. are disposed of safely and
kept out of the reach of babies and
young children. Danger of suffocation!
Electrical and electronic appliances
often contain materials which, if
handled or disposed of incorrectly,
could be potentially hazardous to
human health and to the environment.
They are, however, essential for the
correct functioning of your appliance.
Therefore, please do not dispose of
your old appliance with your household
waste.
Please dispose of it at your local
community waste collection / recycling
centre.
Ensure that your old appliance presents
no danger to children while being
stored for disposal.

Using for the first time
Heating up the oven for the
first time
New ovens can give off a slight smell
on first use. Heating up the oven for at
least 1 hour with nothing in it will get rid
of this smell.
Ensure that the kitchen is well
ventilated while the appliance is
being heated up for the first time.
Close doors to other rooms to
prevent the smell spreading
throughout the house.
,Danger of burning!
Allow the oven to cool down before
cleaning by hand.
^ Clean the oven interior with warm
water, a little washing-up liquid and a
clean sponge, or with a damp
microfibre cloth.
^ Dry all surfaces with a soft cloth.
Leave the oven door open until the
oven interior is completely dry.
^ Remove any protective wrapping and
sticky labels from the oven.
^ Take all accessories out of the oven
and clean them (see "Cleaning and
care").
^ Before heating up the oven, it is a
good idea to wipe the interior out with
a damp cloth first. This way any dust
or bits of packaging that may have
accumulated in the oven
compartment during storage and
unpacking will be removed.
^ Select Fan Plus U.
The oven heating, lighting and cooling
fan will switch on.

Overview of functions
Your oven has a range of functions for
preparing a wide variety of recipes.
Depending on the function selected,
different heating elements are switched
on and sometimes combined with the
fan (see details in parentheses).
Conventional Heat V
(Top heat/grill element + bottom heat
element)
For baking and roasting traditional
recipes, preparing soufflés and cooking
at low temperatures.
If using an older recipe or cookbook,
set the oven temperature for
Conventional Heat 10 °C lower than that
recommended. This won't change
cooking times.
Bottom Heat X
(Bottom heat element)
Use this function towards the end of
cooking to reheat or brown the base of
a cake, quiche or pizza.
Grill Y
(Top heat/grill element)
For grilling and toasting bread, open
sandwiches etc. and browning baked
dishes.
Defrost P
(Fan)
For the gentle defrosting of frozen food.
30
Overview of functions
Rapid Heat-up S
Fan Grill \
(Top heat/grill element + ring heat
element + fan)
(Top heat/grill element + fan)
For pre-heating the oven compartment
quickly.
The oven function required must then
be selected once the desired
temperature has been reached.
For grilling thicker cuts of meat
(e.g. roulades, chicken). Lower
temperatures can be used than when
using the Grill Y function, as the fan
distributes the heat to the food straight
away.
Fan Plus U
Gentle Bake K
(Ring heat element + fan)
(Top heat/grill element + ring heat
element + fan)
This function is used for baking and
roasting on different levels at the same
time.
A lower temperature can be selected
than when using Conventional heat V,
as the fan distributes the heat to the
food straight away.
Ideal for cooking bakes and gratins that
need to be crispy on top.
Intensive Bake O
(Ring heat element + fan + bottom heat
element)
For baking cakes, tarts, pies, quiches
and pizzas that require a crisper base
or moist toppings.
Intensive Bake is not suitable for baking
thin biscuits or for roasting as the juices
will become too dark.
31
Tips on saving energy
Cooking
^ Remove any accessories from the
oven that you do not require for
cooking.
^ Pre-heat the oven only if instructed to
do so in the recipe or the cooking
chart.
^ Avoid opening the door during
cooking.
^ In general, if a range of temperatures
is given, it is best to select the lower
temperature and to check the food
after the shortest given time.
^ It is best to use dark baking tins and
containers with a matt finish made
from non-reflective materials
(enamelled steel, ovenproof
glassware, non-stick coated cast
aluminium). Shiny materials such as
stainless steel or aluminium reflect
heat, preventing it reaching the food
efficiently. Do not cover the oven floor
or the rack with heat-reflective
aluminium foil.
32
^ Observe cooking durations to avoid
energy wastage when cooking food.
Wherever possible set the cooking
duration, or use a food probe.
^ Fan Plus U can be used for cooking
many types of food. Because the fan
distributes the heat to food straight
away, it allows you to use a lower
temperature than you would with
Conventional Heat V. It also
enables you to cook on several shelf
levels at the same time.
^ Fan Grill \ can be used for a wide
variety of food. With Fan Grill you can
use lower temperatures than with
other grill functions which use the
maximum temperature setting.
^ Whenever possible you should cook
several dishes at the same time.
Place them next to each other in the
oven or on different shelf levels.
^ Dishes which you are unable to
prepare at the same time should, if
possible, be cooked one after the
other in order to make use of existing
heat in the oven.
Tips on saving energy
Using residual heat
^ The temperature in cooking
programmes using temperatures
above 140 °C which take longer than
30 minutes to cook can be turned
down to the lowest possible
temperature about 5 minutes before
the end of cooking in order to make
use of residual heat. The cooling fan
and, depending on cooking function,
the hot air fan will remain on. Do not
switch the oven off (see "Safety
instructions").
^ If you wish to clean catalytic
enamelled parts of the oven, it is best
to do so immediately after a cooking
programme. The residual heat in the
oven will help reduce the amount of
energy required. Before cleaning any
catalytic parts of the oven, ensure
you clean the door and PerfectClean
surfaces first to avoid soiling baking
on.
33
Operation
Using the oven
Cooling fan
^ Place the food in the oven if the
cooking programme does not require
pre-heating.
The cooling fan will continue to run for a
while after the oven has been switched
off to prevent any humidity building up
in the oven, on the control panel or in
the oven housing unit.
^ Select the required oven function with
the function selector.
The oven lighting and the fan will switch
on.
^ Select the temperature with the
temperature selector.
The oven heating will switch on.
After the cooking process:
^ Turn the function selector to 0 and
the temperature selector to ß.
^ Remove the food from the oven.
34
When the temperature in the oven has
fallen sufficiently, the cooling fan will
switch off automatically.
Operation
Pre-heating
It is only necessary to pre-heat the oven
in a few instances.
Most dishes can be placed in a cold
oven. They will then make use of the
heat produced during the heating-up
phase. If the recipe requires
pre-heating, place the food in the oven
once the temperature indicator light
goes out.
Pre-heat the oven when cooking the
following food with the following oven
functions:
Fan Plus U
– dark bread doughs,
– beef sirloin joints and fillets.
Rapid Heat-up
Do not use Rapid Heat-up S to
pre-heat the oven when baking
pizzas or delicate mixtures (e.g.
small baked goods with a high
sugar content, pizza, choux
pastries, sponges).
They will brown too quickly.
^ Select Rapid Heat-up S.
^ Select a temperature.
^ When the temperature indicator light
6 goes out for the first time, set the
oven function you require for
continued cooking or baking.
^ Place the food in the oven.

Baking
Eating food which has been cooked
correctly is important for preventing
food poisoning or other ailments.
Only bake cakes, pizza, chips etc.
until they are golden brown. Do not
overcook them.
Oven functions
Depending on how the food is
prepared, you can use Fan Plus U,
Intensive Bake O or Conventional
Heat V.
– Always place baking tins on the rack.
Position rectangular tins with the
longer side across the width of the
rack for optimum heat distribution
and even baking results.
– When baking cakes with fresh fruit
toppings and deep sponge cakes,
place the tin on the universal tray to
catch any spillages and keep the
oven cleaner.
Baking paper, greasing
Bakeware
Miele accessories, e.g. the universal
tray, are treated with PerfectClean
enamel (see "Features").
The choice of bakeware depends on
the oven function and how the food is
prepared.
Surfaces treated with PerfectClean
enamel generally do not need to be
greased or covered with baking paper.
– Fan Plus U, Intensive Bake O:
Baking tray, universal tray, bakeware
of any ovenproof material.
Baking paper is only needed with
– Conventional Heat V:
Dark baking tins with a matt finish.
Avoid using bright, shiny metal tins
as they give an uneven and poor
browning result and in some cases
cakes might not cook properly.
– anything with a high salt content
(e.g. pretzels, bread sticks), because
sodium can damage the
PerfectClean surface;
– meringues or sponges with a high
egg-white content, because they are
more likely to stick;
– frozen food cooked on the rack.

Notes on the baking chart
Shelf levels ‡
Temperature 6
The shelf level on which you place your
food for baking depends on the oven
function and number of trays being
used.
As a general rule, select the lower
temperature given in the chart.
Baking at temperatures higher than
those recommended may reduce the
cooking time, but will lead to uneven
browning, and unsatisfactory cooking
results.
Baking time +
Check if the food is cooked at the end
of the shortest time quoted.
To check if a cake is ready, insert a
wooden skewer into the centre. It is
ready if the skewer comes out clean,
without dough or crumbs sticking to it.
– Fan Plus U
1 tray: Shelf level 2
2 trays: Shelf levels 1+3

Roasting
Oven functions
Notes on the roasting chart
Depending on how the food is
prepared, you can use either Fan
Plus U or Conventional Heat V.
Temperature 6
Roasting dishes
You can use any heat-resistant
crockery:
Miele Gourmet oven dishes, roasting
pans, ovenproof glass trays, roasting
bags, dishes made from earthenware
or cast iron, the universal tray, rack
and/or grilling and roasting insert (if
available) on top of the universal tray.
We recommend roasting in covered
oven dishes as this ensures that
sufficient stock remains for making
gravy.
The oven also stays cleaner than with
open roasting.
As a general rule, select the lower
temperature given in the chart.
If higher temperatures are used, the
meat will brown on the outside, but will
not be properly cooked through.
When cooking with Fan Plus U, select
a temperature 20 °C lower than when
using Conventional Heat V.
Select a temperature of approx. 10 °C
lower than quoted in the roasting chart
for meat weighing more than 3 kg.
The roasting process will take longer,
but the meat will cook evenly through
and the skin or crackling will not be too
thick.
When roasting on the rack, set a
temperature approx. 10 °C lower than if
using an oven dish.
Pre-heating
Pre-heating is only required when
roasting beef sirloin joints and fillets.
54
Roasting
Roasting duration +
The roasting time can be determined
by multiplying the thickness of the roast
[cm] with the time per cm [min./cm]
stated below, depending on the type of
meat:
Beef/Venison: . . . . . . . . . 15–18 min./cm
Pork/Veal/Lamb:. . . . . . . 12–15 min./cm
Sirloin joints/Fillets:. . . . . . 8–10 min./cm
Check if the meat is cooked after the
shortest time quoted.
Shelf levels ‡
As a general rule, use shelf level 2.
Useful tips
Browning
Browning only occurs towards the end
of the roasting time. If cooking with a
roasting dish, remove the lid about
halfway through the roasting time if a
more intensive browning result is
desired.
Standing time
At the end of the programme, take the
roast out of the oven, wrap in aluminium
foil and leave to stand for about
10 minutes. This helps retain juices
when the meat is carved.
Roasting poultry
For a crisp finish, baste the poultry
10 minutes before the end of the
cooking time with slightly salted water.

Low temperature cooking
This programme is ideal for cooking
beef, pork, veal or lamb when a tender
result is required.
First the meat needs to be seared all
over briefly at a high temperature on
the cooktop in order to seal it.
Then place the meat in the pre-heated
oven where the low temperature and
long cooking time will cook it to
perfection and ensure it is very tender.
Low temperature cooking
procedure
Use the universal tray with the rack
placed on top of it.
Do not use the Rapid Heat-up S
function to pre-heat the oven.
^ Place the rack together with the
universal tray on shelf level 2.
The meat relaxes and the juices inside
start to circulate evenly throughout the
meat to reach the outer layers.
This has very tender and succulent
results.
^ Select Conventional Heat V and a
temperature of 130 °C.
Useful tips
^ While the oven is pre-heating, sear
the meat on all sides on the cooktop.
– Use lean meat which has been
correctly hung and trimmed. Bones
should be removed before cooking.
– For searing, use a suitable cooking
oil or fat that can withstand high
temperatures (e.g. clarified butter).
^ Pre-heat the oven together with the
universal tray and rack for approx.
15 minutes.
,Danger of burning!
Use oven gloves when placing food
in the oven, turning or removing it
and when adjusting oven shelves
etc. in a hot oven.
– Do not cover meat during cooking.
^ Place the seared meat on the rack.
The cooking duration is approx. 2–4
hours and depends on the weight and
size of the meat, as well as the desired
degree of doneness and browning.
^ Reduce the temperature to 100 °C.
^ Continue cooking until the end of the
cooking duration.
On models with a clock/timer, you can
set the cooking process to finish
automatically (see "Clock/timer - Setting
the cooking duration").

temperatures
Meat
– Meat can be carved straight from the
oven. It does not need to rest.
– The cooking result won't be affected
if the meat is left in the oven after the
finish of the programme. It can be
kept warm until you serve it.
– The meat is at an ideal temperature
to be eaten straight away. Serve on
pre-heated plates with very hot
sauce or gravy to prevent it cooling
down too quickly.

Grilling
,Danger of burning!
Grilling dishes
Grill with the oven door closed. If
you grill with the door open, hot air
will escape from the oven instead of
being cooled by the cooling fan.
The controls will get hot.
Oven functions
Grill Y
For grilling and toasting bread, open
sandwiches etc. and browning baked
dishes.
The top heat/grill element is ready for
use when it glows red.
Use the universal tray with the rack or
grilling and roasting insert (if available)
on top.
The juices from the food being cooked
collect under the insert. This prevents
them from spitting and making the oven
dirty. The juices can then be used for
making gravy and sauces.
Fan Grill \
For grilling thicker items, e.g. rolled
meat, poultry pieces.
The top heat/grill element and fan are
switched on alternately.

One way of finding out how far through
a piece of meat has been cooked is to
press down on it with a spoon:
As a general rule, select the lower
temperature given in the chart.
If higher temperatures are used, the
meat will brown on the outside, but will
not be properly cooked through.
The Y setting is recommended for
toasting and the fast browning of lean
items.
Pre-heating
Rare:
If there is very little
resistance to the pressure
of the spoon, it will still be
red on the inside.
Medium:
If there is some resistance,
the inside will be pink
Well-done: If there is great resistance,
it is cooked through.
Always pre-heat the top heat/grill
element for approx. 5 minutes with the
door closed.
Check if the meat is cooked after the
shortest time quoted.
Shelf levels ‡
Tip
Select the shelf level according to the
thickness of the food.
If the surface of thicker cuts of meat is
cooked but the centre is still raw,
continue grilling at a lower temperature
setting or use a lower shelf level to
allow the food to cook through to the
centre. This will also prevent the
surface of the meat getting too dark.
– Thin cuts: Shelf levels 4/5
– Thicker cuts: Shelf levels 2/3
Grilling duration +
– Turn the food halfway through the
cooking time.

Grilling
Preparing food for grilling
Grilling
Rinse meat under cold running water
and then pat dry. Do not season meat
with salt before grilling as this draws
the juices out.
^ Place the rack or the roasting and
grilling insert (if available) in the
universal tray.
Add a little oil to lean meat if necessary.
Do not use other types of fat as they
can burn and cause smoke.
^ Select the required oven function and
the temperature.
Clean fish in the normal way. To
enhance the flavour, add a little salt or
squeeze a little lemon juice over the
fish.
^ Place the food on top.
^ Pre-heat the top heat/grill element for
approx. 5 minutes with the door
closed.
,Danger of burning!
Use oven gloves when placing food
in the oven, turning or removing it
and when adjusting oven shelves
etc. in a hot oven.
^ Place the food on the appropriate
shelf level (see Grilling guide).
^ Close the door.
^ Turn the food halfway through
grilling.

– Door must be closed for grilling.
64
Defrost
Use the Defrost P function to gently
defrost frozen food.
When this function is selected, only the
fan switches on and circulates the air at
room temperature.
,Danger of salmonella poisoning!
It is particularly important to observe
food hygiene rules when defrosting
poultry. Do not use the liquid from
the defrosted poultry. Pour it away,
and wash the tray, the sink and your
hands.
Useful tips
– Where possible, remove the
packaging and put the food to be
defrosted on the universal tray or into
a suitable dish.
Defrosting times
The time needed for defrosting
depends on the type and weight of the
food, and at what temperature it was
deep frozen. The following chart is for
guidance only. It is important to check
that food is thoroughly defrosted.

Drying food
Drying is a traditional method of
preserving fruit, certain vegetables and
herbs.
It is important that fruit and vegetables
are ripe and not bruised before they are
dried.
^ To prepare food for drying:
– Peel and core apples, and cut into
slices 0.5 cm thick.
– Core plumbs if necessary.
– Peel, core and cut pears into
wedges.
– Peel and slice bananas.
– Clean mushrooms, then either halve
or slice them.
– Remove parsley and dill from the
stem.
^ Distribute the food evenly over the
universal tray.

67
Frozen food/Ready meals
Useful tips
Cakes, pizza, baguettes
– Large frozen items such as cakes,
pizzas or baguettes cover an
extensive area of the baking tray or
universal tray.
The temperature difference if large
frozen items are cooked in these
trays can cause the tray to distort in
such a way that it cannot be
removed from the oven when it is hot.
Further use will make the distortion
worse. Place this type of food on
baking paper on the rack to prevent
the risk of this happening.
– Use the lowest temperature
recommended on the manufacturer's
packaging.
Oven chips, croquettes or similar
items
– Small items of frozen food such as
oven chips can be cooked on the
baking tray or universal tray.
Place baking paper on the tray so
that they cook gently.
– Use the lowest temperature
recommended on the manufacturer's
packaging.
– Turn several times during cooking.
68
Preparation
Eating food which has been cooked
correctly is important for preventing
food poisoning or other ailments.
Only bake cakes, pizza, chips etc.
until they are golden brown. Do not
overcook them.
^ Select the function and temperature
recommended on the manufacturer's
packaging.
^ Pre-heat the oven.
^ Place the food in the oven on the
shelf level recommended on the
packaging when the temperature
indicator light goes out.
^ Check the food at the end of the

Cleaning and care
,Danger of burning! Make sure
the oven heating elements are
switched off and that the oven cavity
is cool.
,Danger of injury! Do not use a
steam cleaning appliance to clean
this appliance. The steam could
reach electrical components and
cause a short circuit.
Unsuitable cleaning agents
To avoid damaging the surfaces of your
appliance, do not use:
– cleaning agents containing soda,
ammonia, acids or chlorides,
– cleaning agents containing
descaling agents on the oven front,
– abrasive cleaning agents,
e.g. powder cleaners and cream
cleaners,
– solvent-based cleaning agents,
All external surfaces are susceptible
to discolouration or change in
appearance if unsuitable cleaning
agents are used.
Oven cleaners and descaling
agents will damage the front of the
oven, in particular.
Cleaning agent residues must be
removed immediately after use.
All surfaces are also susceptible to
scratching. Scratches on glass
surfaces could even cause a
breakage in certain circumstances.
– stainless steel cleaning agents,
– dishwasher cleaner,
– glass cleaning agents,
– cleaning agents for ceramic
cooktops,
– hard, abrasive brushes or sponges,
e.g. pot scourers, brushes or
sponges which have been previously
used with abrasive cleaning agents,
– dirt erasers,
– sharp metal tools,
– steel, wool or metal scourers
– spot cleaning,
– oven cleaner*,
– stainless steel spiral pads*.
* These can, however, be used to
remove very heavy soiling from
PerfectClean treated surfaces in a
spot treatment.
70
Cleaning and care
Normal soiling
Remove any soiling immediately
after use.
If not, it might become impossible to
remove.
Continued use without regular
cleaning will make the oven much
harder to clean.
The accessories are not
dishwasher-proof.
Useful tips
– Soiling caused by spilt juices and
cake mixtures is best removed whilst
the oven is still warm. Exercise
caution and make sure the oven is
not too hot - danger of burning.
– To make cleaning easier, you can
dismantle the oven door, remove the
shelf runners and the FlexiClip
telescopic runners (if present), and
lower the top heat/grill element.
See "Cleaning the catalytic back
panel" for instructions on how to keep
the back panel clean.
^ It is best to remove normal soiling immediately using a clean sponge and
a solution of hot water and
washing-up liquid or with a clean,
damp microfibre cloth.
^ After cleaning, make sure all residual
cleaning agents are thoroughly
removed with clean water. This is
particularly important when cleaning
surfaces treated with PerfectClean
enamel as cleaning agent residues
can impair the non-stick properties.
^ After cleaning, wipe the surfaces dry
using a soft cloth.
Cleaning the seal
There is a seal around the oven interior
which seals the oven interior and the
inside of the door.
Grease deposits on the seal can
cause it to become brittle and
cracked.
^ It is advisable to wipe the seal clean
after each use.
71
Cleaning and care
Stubborn soiling (does not
apply to the FlexiClip
telescopic runners)
Spilt fruit and roasting juices may
cause lasting discolouration or matt
patches on enamelled surfaces.
This discolouration is permanent but
will not affect the efficiency of the
finish. Do not use force to remove
this discolouration! Clean these
following the instructions given here.
^ Baked on deposits can be removed
with a glass scraper or a
non-abrasive stainless steel spiral
pad.
Remove catalytic panels before
using oven spray. The chemicals
used in oven sprays will damage
catalytic enamel, rendering it
ineffective.
72
^ Very stubborn soiling on
PerfectClean treated enamel can be
cleaned using the Original Miele
oven cleaner. It must be applied to
cold surfaces in accordance with
instructions on the packaging.
Non-Miele oven spray must only be
used in a cold oven and for no longer
than a maximum of 10 minutes.
^ If necessary, the scouring pad on the
back of a non-scratching washing-up
sponge can be used to remove the
soiling.
^ After cleaning, remove all oven
cleaning agent residues thoroughly
with clean water, and dry with a soft
cloth.
Cleaning and care
Stubborn soiling on the
FlexiClip telescopic runners
Do not clean FlexiClip telescopic
runners in a dishwasher. The special
lubricant used in the telescopic
runners will wash out during
dishwashing.
In the case of stubborn soiling on the
surfaces of the telescopic runners, or
clogged bearings caused by fruit juices
spilling over, proceed as follows:
^ Soak the FlexiClip runners for approx.
10 minutes in a solution of hot water
and washing-up liquid. If necessary,
use the back of a washing-up
sponge to remove the soiling. The
bearings can be carefully cleaned
with a soft brush.
The runners may appear discoloured
or a lighter colour in places after they
have been cleaned. This will not
affect the functioning of the runners
in any way.
Cleaning the catalytic
enamelled back panel
Soiling from oil and fat is burnt off
catalytic enamel when very high
temperatures are used in the oven.
The higher the temperature, the more
effective the process.
Exposure to scouring agents,
abrasive brushes or sponges and
oven sprays can cause catalytic
enamel to lose its self-cleaning
properties.
Catalytic enamelled panels should
therefore be taken out of the oven
before using oven spray in it.
Removing soiling caused by spices,
sugar and similar deposits
^ Remove the back panel (see
"Cleaning and care - Removing the
back panel").
^ Clean the back panel by hand with a
solution of hot water and washing-up
liquid applied with a soft brush.
^ Rinse it thoroughly and then leave it
to dry before fitting it back in the
oven.
73
Cleaning and care
Removing oil and grease soiling from
the catalytic enamelled panel
^ Remove any accessories from the
oven, including the shelf runners.
^ Wipe large deposits of soiling from
the oven interior and the inside of the
door before starting the cleaning
process to avoid them baking on.
^ Select the Fan Plus U function and
a temperature of 250 °C.
^ Then heat the empty oven for at least
an hour.
The length of time required will depend
on the level of soiling.
If the catalytic coating is very heavily
soiled with oil and grease, a film can
form on the surfaces of the oven
interior during the cleaning process.
74
,Danger of burning! Allow the
oven to cool down before cleaning
by hand.
^ Clean the inside of the door and the
oven interior with a clean sponge and
a solution of hot water and
washing-up liquid or a clean, damp
microfibre cloth.
Any remaining soiling on the panel
will gradually disappear with each
subsequent use of the oven at high
temperatures.
Cleaning and care
Removing the door
Do not attempt to take the door off
the retainers when it is in the
horizontal position as the retainers
will spring back against the oven.
Do not use the handle to pull the
door off the retainers as the handle
could break.
^ Raise the door up till it rests open.
The oven door is connected to the
hinges by retainers.
Before removing the door from the
retainers, the locking clamps on both
hinges have to be released.
^ Open the door fully.
^ Release the locking clamps by
turning them as far as they will go.
^ Hold the door securely at both sides,
and lift it upwards off the retainers.
Make sure you take it off straight.
75
Cleaning and care
Dismantling the door
The oven door is an open system with
three glass panes which have a
heat-reflective coating on some of their
surface.
During operation, cool air is passed
through the oven door to keep the outer
pane cool.
If soiling has worked its way in between
the glass panes, the door can be
dismantled in order to clean in between
the panes.
,Danger of injury.
Always remove the door before
dismantling it.
^ Place the door on a protective
surface (e.g. on a tea towel) to
prevent it getting scratched. The
door handle should line up with the
edge of the table. Make sure the
glass lies flat and does not get
broken during cleaning.
Take particular care as scratches
can damage the glass.
When cleaning the glass panes, do
not use abrasive cleaning agents,
hard sponges or brushes and do not
use sharp metal tools or scrapers.
Please also read the general notes
on cleaning the oven front before
cleaning the glass panes.
Oven spray will damage the
aluminium trims inside the door.
These should only be cleaned using
hot water and washing-up liquid
applied with a clean sponge or a
clean, damp microfibre cloth.
Be especially vigilant after
dismantling the door that the glass
panes do not break.
76
^ Flip the two glass pane retainers
outwards to open them.
Cleaning and care
To remove the inner panes:
Then reassemble the door carefully:
^ Gently lift the inner pane up and out
of the plastic strip.
^ Refit the middle pane in such a way
that the material number is legible
(i.e. not reversed).
^ Lift the middle pane up gently and
pull it out.
^ Clean the door panes and other
individual parts with a clean sponge
and a solution of hot water and
washing-up liquid or a clean, damp
microfibre cloth.
^ Push the inner pane with the matt
printed side facing downwards into
the plastic strip and place it between
the retainers.
^ Dry all parts with a soft cloth.
77
Cleaning and care
^ Flip the two glass pane retainers
inwards to close them.
The door is now reassembled and is
ready to fit back on the oven.
78
Cleaning and care
Fitting the door
^ Open the door fully.
It is essential that the locking
clamps lock securely when the door
is refitted after cleaning. Otherwise
the door could work loose from the
retainers and be damaged.
^ Hold the door securely on both sides
and carefully fit it back into the hinge
retainers.
Make sure that the door goes back
on straight.
^ Flip both locking clamps back up as
far as they will go into a horizontal
position.
79
Cleaning and care

Installing the oven
,The oven must be built into its
housing unit before it can be used.
^ Push the oven into the housing unit
and align it.
^ Open the door (if you have not
removed it previously).
In order to function correctly, the
oven requires an adequate supply
of cool air.
Ensure that the supply of cool air is
not impaired (e.g. by heat insulation
strips in the housing unit).
Please also ensure that the cool air
supply is not unduly heated by other
heat sources such as a wood
burning stove.
Before installation
^ Before connecting the oven to the
mains, you must disconnect the
power supply to the oven isolator
switch.
Installing the oven
^ Connect the mains cable from the
oven to the isolator.
Lifting the oven by the door handle
can damage the door.
Use the handle recesses on the side
of the casing.
It is advisable to remove the door
before installing the appliance (see
"Cleaning and Care - Removing the
door") and remove accessories from
the oven cavity. This will make it easier
to install in its niche and you will not be
tempted to use the handle to carry it.
92
^ Use the screws supplied to secure
the oven to the side walls of the
housing unit through the holes in the
oven trim.
^ Refit the door, if necessary (see
"Cleaning and care - Refitting the
door").
