Warning and Safety instructions
Technical safety
~ Unauthorised installation, maintenance and repairs can cause
considerable danger for the user. Installation, maintenance and
repairs must only be carried out by a Miele authorised technician.
~ A damaged appliance can be dangerous. Check it for visible
signs of damage. Do not use a damaged appliance.
~ The electrical safety of this appliance can only be guaranteed
when correctly earthed. It is essential that this standard safety
requirement is met. If in any doubt please have the electrical
connection inspected by an electrician.
~ Before connecting the appliance to the mains supply, ensure that

match the mains electricity supply. This data must correspond in
order to avoid the 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

and do not guarantee the required safety of the appliance.
~ For safety reasons, this appliance may only be used after it has
been built in.
~ This appliance must not be used in a non-stationary location (e.g.
on a ship).
~ Never open the casing of the appliance. Tampering with electrical

9
Warning and Safety instructions
Correct use
~ The steam oven becomes hot when in use.
You could burn yourself on the oven interior, cooked food, oven
accessories or hot steam.
Wear oven gloves when placing food in the oven or removing it and
when adjusting oven shelves etc. in a hot oven. Take care when
putting cooking containers into the oven or removing them not to
spill the contents.
~ Danger of burning.
There will be some residual hot water in the steam generator at the
end of a cooking process. This will be pumped back into the water
container. Take care not to spill the contents when taking the water
container out of the appliance.
~ Do not bottle or heat up food in closed tins in the oven, as
pressure will build up in the tin causing it to explode.
~ You could injure yourself on the open oven door or trip over it.
Avoid leaving the door open unnecessarily.
~ Plastic dishes which are not heat- and steam resistant melt at
high temperatures and can damage the appliance.
Use temperature- (to 100°C) and steam-resistant plastic dishes.
Follow the manufacturer's instructions.
~ Food which is left in the oven to be kept hot can dry out and the
moisture released can lead to corrosion damage in the appliance.
Do not use the oven for keeping food warm and do not use utensils
in the appliance which could corrode.
~ The door can support a maximum weight of 8 kg.
Do not sit on or lean against an open door, and do not place heavy
objects on it. Also make sure that nothing can get trapped between
the door and the oven cavity. The oven could get damaged.
10
Warning and Safety instructions
Cleaning and care
~ 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.
~ 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 side runners can be removed for cleaning purposes (see

Caring for the environment
Disposal of the packing
material
Disposing of your old
appliance
The packaging is designed to protect
the appliance from damage during
transportation. The packaging materials
used are selected from materials which
are environmentally friendly for disposal
and should be recycled.
Electrical and electronic appliances
often contain valuable materials. They
also 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. Please
do not therefore dispose of it with your
household waste.
Recycling the packaging reduces the
use of raw materials in the
manufacturing process and also
reduces the amount of waste in landfill
sites.
Please dispose of it at your local
community waste collection/recycling
centre or contact your dealer for
advice. Ensure that it presents no
danger to children while being stored
for disposal.

The appliance needs to be descaled
Condensate tray
When you are using perforated containers, place the
condensate tray on the lowest shelf level to collect any drops
of liquid and allow them to be removed easily.
You can also use the condensate tray as a cooking container
if necessary.
Water container
The maximum water level is 2.0 litres, the minimum 0.5 litres.
These levels are indicated on the container. Do not exceed
the maximum level.
The amount of water required for cooking will depend on the
type of food. Opening the door during cooking will increase
the amount used.
Depending on programme used the water container may
need refilling after 90 minutes. The appliance will let you
know when it needs refilling ?.
At the end of the cooking programme residual water in the
steam generator is pumped back into the water container.
The water container must be emptied after each use.
16
Description of the functions
Noises
You will hear a pumping sound when the appliance is
switched on, during use and after switching it off.
This is the sound of water being pumped through the system
and is quite normal.
Temperature
The appliance has a temperature range of 40 °C to 100 °C.
The appliance is set at 100 °C when the oven is switched on.
You can alter the temperature in 5 °C steps.

......
Duration
A duration of between 1 minute (0:01) and 9 hours 59 minutes
(9:59) can be set.
17
Description of the functions
Heating-up phase
During the heating-up phase the oven compartment is heated
to the set temperature. The display will show the temperature
in the cooking compartment as it rises.
The duration of the heating-up phase will depend on the
quantity and the temperature of the food. In general the
heating-up phase will last for approx. 5 minutes. The duration
will be longer if you are preparing refrigerated or frozen food.
Cooking phase
The cooking phase begins when the set temperature is
reached. During the cooking phase the duration remaining
(time left) will be shown in the display.
Steam reduction
The appliance door will open a fraction at the end of a
cooking programme to release some of the steam from the
cabinet. The door will then close automatically.
Steam reduction can be switched off if you wish (see
"Settings"). If switched off there will be a lot of steam emitted
from the cabinet when the door is opened.
Please refer to "Steam cooking" and "Special applications"
for more information and tips on how to use your steam
oven.

Before using for the first time
Please stick the extra data plate for the appliance supplied
with this documentation in the space provided in the "After
sales service, data plate, guarantee" section of this booklet.
Cleaning for the first time
^ Remove any protective foil.
Water container
^ Take the water container out of the appliance and rinse it
by hand.
Accessories / Oven interior
^ Take all accessories out of the oven. Wash them by hand
or in the dishwasher.
The interior of the steam oven has been treated at the factory
with a conditioning agent.
^ To remove this, clean the oven interior with a mild solution
of washing-up liquid and hot water and then dry thoroughly
with a soft cloth.
Water hardness setting
The appliance is set ex-works for hard water (S03). It must be
adjusted to local water hardness to ensure trouble-free
operation and to ensure that descaling is carried out at the
correct interval. The harder the water, the more often the
appliance will need to be descaled.
^ Check the hardness of your local water supply and adjust
the water hardness as necessary (see "Settings").
19
Before using for the first time
Setting the correct boiling point for water
Before cooking food for the first time, you must set the boiling
point for water, as this varies according to the altitude of the
location of the appliance. This procedure also flushes out the
waterways.
This process must be carried out to ensure efficient
functioning of your appliance.
^ Run the appliance at 100 °C for 15 minutes. Proceed as
described in "Brief operating instructions".
If you move house, the appliance will need to be re-set for
the new altitude if this differs from the old one by more than
300 m. To do this, descale the appliance (see "Cleaning and
care / Descaling").

General notes
This section contains general information. You will find more
detailed information about particular foods and how to cook
them in the other sections.
The advantages of cooking with steam
Almost all vitamins and minerals are retained as the food is
not immersed in water.
Cooking with steam also retains the true taste of the food
better than conventional cooking. We therefore recommend
seasoning the food after it has been cooked. Food also
retains its fresh, original colour.
Suitable containers
Cooking containers
This steam oven is supplied with stainless steel cooking
containers. Other containers, in a variety of sizes, both
perforated and solid, are available as optional extras (please
refer to "Optional accessories"). This enables you to choose
the most suitable container for the food you are preparing.
It is best to use perforated containers for steam cooking. The
steam can reach the food from all sides and the food is
cooked evenly.
Your own containers
You can also use your own containers. However, please note
the following:
– Containers must be heat-resistant to 100 °C and able to
withstand hot steam. With plastic containers please check
with the manufacturer that they are suitable for use in a
steam oven.
– Thick-sided containers made from porcelain, china or
stoneware, for example, are not so suitable for steam
cooking. They do not conduct heat well and as a result
cooking durations will be considerably longer than those
given in the charts.
27
General notes
– Place the cooking containers on the rack and not on the
oven floor.
– Ensure that there is a gap between the upper rim of the
container and the top of the cooking compartment to allow
sufficient steam into the container.
Condensate tray
Place the condensate tray on the lowest shelf runner when
using perforated containers. The tray will collect any drops of
liquid and allow them to be removed easily.
You can also use the condensate tray as a cooking container
if necessary.
Shelf level
You can select any shelf level. You can also cook on several
levels at the same time. This will not alter the cooking
duration.
When using more than one deep container at the same time it
is best to offset them on their runners and to leave at least
one level free in between them.
To prevent the cooking containers and rack from tipping,
always insert them between the rails of the side runners.
Frozen food
The heating up phase for frozen food is longer than for fresh
food. The greater the quantity of frozen food, the longer the
heating up phase.
28
General notes
Temperature
A maximum temperature of 100 °C is reached in the steam
oven. Most types of food will cook at this temperature. Some
more delicate types of food, such as soft fruit, must be
cooked at lower temperatures as otherwise they will burst.
More information is given in the relevant section.
Combination with a Gourmet warming drawer
When the warming drawer is in use the oven cavity in the
steam oven can get up to 40 °C. If, in this case, you set a
temperature of 40 °C, no steam will be produced because the
oven cavity is too warm.
Duration
In general, the cooking durations for cooking with steam are
the same as for cooking food in a saucepan. More
information about any factors which may affect the cooking
duration is given in the relevant sections.
The quantity of food does not affect the cooking duration.
1 kg of potatoes will take the same time to cook as 500 g.
The durations given in the charts are guidelines only. We
recommend selecting the shorter cooking duration quoted to
start with. If food is not cooked sufficiently after the shorter
time it can be put back in the oven and cooked for longer.
Cooking with liquid
When cooking with liquid only fill the cooking container 2/3 full
to prevent the liquid spilling when the cooking container is
removed from the oven.
Your own recipes
Food and recipes which are prepared in pot or a pan can
also be cooked in the steam oven. The cooking times in the
steam oven will be the same. Please note that food will not
brown or crisp when cooking with steam.
29
Steam cooking
Vegetables
Fresh
Prepare fresh vegetables in the usual way, i.e. wash, clean
and cut them up.
Frozen food
Frozen vegetables do not need to be defrosted beforehand,
unless they have been frozen together in a block.
Frozen and fresh vegetables which take the same length of
time to cook can be cooked together.
If vegetables have frozen together in clumps, break these up
before cooking with steam. Follow the manufacturer's
instructions on the packaging regarding cooking duration.
Cooking containers
Food such as peas or asparagus spears, which have little or
no space between them, will take longer to cook because the
steam has less space to work in. For an even result, it is best
to use a shallow container for these types of food, and only fill
it about 3 - 5 cm deep. When cooking large quantities divide
the food between 2 or 3 shallow containers rather than using
one deep one.
Different types of vegetables which take the same length of
time to cook can be cooked together.
Use solid containers for vegetables which are cooked in
liquid.
Shelf level
When cooking vegetables with a distinctive colour (e.g.
beetroot) in a perforated container, place the perforated
container above the condensate tray to avoid any colour
transfer.
30
Steam cooking
Duration
As with conventional methods, when cooking vegetables with
steam the cooking duration will depend on the size and also
whether you want the vegetables to be al dente or soft/well
done. Example:
waxy potatoes, cut into quarters = approx. 18 minutes
waxy potatoes, cut in half = approx. 22 minutes
Brussels sprouts, large, al dente = approx. 12 minutes
Brussels sprouts, small, soft = approx. 12 minutes

Steam cooking
Meat
Fresh
Prepare the meat in the usual way.
Frozen food
Meat should be thoroughly defrosted before cooking in the
steam oven (see "Defrosting").
Preparation
For meat which needs to be seared before being cooked,
e.g. stew, sear the meat in a pan on the hob first.
Duration
The cooking duration depends on the thickness and the
texture of the meat, and not on the weight. The thicker the
piece of meat, the longer the cooking duration. A piece of
meat weighing 500 g which is 10 cm thick will take longer to
cook than a piece of meat weighing 500 g which is 5 cm
thick.
Tips
Use a perforated container to retain the juices when cooking
meat, such as prime beef topside. Place a solid container
underneath to catch the juices. You can use these to make a
gravy or freeze them for later use.
Boiling fowl, back or top rib and meat bones can be used to
make stock. Place the meat together with some mixed
vegetables in a solid cooking container and add cold water.
Cook at 100 °C for 60 to 90 minutes. The longer the cooking
duration, the stronger the stock.

Fish
Fresh
Prepare fresh fish in the usual way, i.e. clean, gut and fillet.
Frozen
Defrost frozen fish before cooking (see "Defrosting").
Preparation
Add some lemon or lime juice to fish before cooking. The
citric acid helps the flesh stay firm.
It is not necessary to season fish with salt when cooking with
steam as this method retains the minerals which give the fish
its unique flavour.
Cooking containers
If using a perforated container, grease it first.
Shelf level
When cooking fish in a perforated container at the same time
as cooking other types of food in other containers, place the
container with the fish directly above the condensate tray to
catch any liquid and so avoid any transfer of tastes to other
food.
Temperature
85 °C – 90 °C
For gently cooking delicate types of fish, such as sole.
100 °C
For cooking firmer types of fish, e.g. cod and salmon.
Also for cooking fish in sauce or stock..
37
Steam cooking
Duration
The cooking duration depends on the thickness and the
texture of the fish, and not on the weight. The thicker the fish,
the longer the cooking duration. A 3 cm thick piece of fish
weight 500 g will take longer to cook than a 2 cm thick piece
of fish weighing 500 g.
The longer fish cooks, the firmer its flesh will become. Use the
cooking durations given in the chart.
If you find that the fish is not cooked sufficiently only cook it
for a few minutes more.
When cooking fish in sauce or stock, we recommend that you
increase the cooking duration quoted by a few minutes.
Tips
Adding herbs and spices, such as dill, will help bring out the
full flavour of the fish.
Cook large fish in the swimming position. To help maintain the
shape of the fish, place a small cup or similar upside down in
the cooking container, and arrange the fish bellyside down
over the cup.
You can use any fish scraps, e.g. fish heads, bones, tails etc
to make a fish stock. Place the fish scraps together with
some mixed vegetables in a solid cooking container and add
cold water. Cook at 100 °C for 60 to 90 minutes. The longer
the cooking duration, the stronger the stock.
Blue fish is fish which is cooked in water and vinegar. It is
important not to damage the skin of the fish. This method is
suitable for cooking carp, trout, tench, eel and salmon.

Hen's eggs
Use a perforated container to boil eggs in the steam oven.
The eggs do not need to be pierced before cooking as they
are gradually warmed during the heating up phase and so do
not burst when they are cooked with steam.
When using a solid container for make egg dishes such as
scrambled eggs, remember to grease it first.

Steam cooking
Menu cooking (cooking whole meals)
Before cooking meals with the Menu cooking function
switch off the moisture reduction system (see "Settings").
You can use the steam oven to cook a whole meal containing
types of food which have different cooking durations, e.g. fish
fillet with rice and broccoli. Each dish is placed in the oven at
different times such that they are all ready at the same time.
Shelf level
When cooking fish or food with a distinctive colour (e.g.
beetroot) in a perforated container, place the perforated
container directly above the condensate tray to avoid any
transfer of flavour or colour to other food and to prevent liquid
dripping onto food below it.
Temperature
Whole meals should be cooked at a temperature of 100 °C as
this is the temperature required to cook the majority of foods.
Do not cook a whole meal at the lowest temperature when
different temperatures are required for different types of food,
e.g. 85 °C for seabream and 100 °C for potatoes.
If the recommended cooking temperature for the food is
85 °C for example, try cooking it at 100 °C and testing the
result. Some delicate types of fish with a soft structure, e.g.
sole and plaice will become very firm when cooked at 100 °C.
Duration
If you are increasing the recommended temperature, shorten
the cooking duration by approx. 1/3.

Special applications
Reheating
The steam oven is very effective at reheating food gently,
without drying it out or cooking it further. The food will reheat
evenly and does not need to be stirred during the reheating
process.
You can reheat individual dishes or plated meals which have
been prepared previously (e.g. meat, vegetables and
potatoes).
Suitable containers
Small quantities can be reheated on a plate, larger quantities
should be placed in a cooking container.
Duration
The number of plates or containers has no bearing on the
cooking duration.
The cooking durations listed in the chart relate to an average
portion per plate/container. Increase the cooking duration for
larger quantities.
Tips
Do not reheat large items, such as a joint of roast meat,
whole. Divide it into portions and reheat these as plated
meals.
Compact items, such as stuffed peppers or roulades, should
be cut in half.
Please note that breaded items, such as schnitzel, will not
retain their crispness when they are reheated.
Reheat sauces separately, except for dishes such as stew
and casseroles where the sauce is part of the dish.
52
Special applications
Procedure
^ Cover the food with a deep plate, a lid, or with foil that is
resistant to temperatures up to 100 °C and to steam.
^ Place the plate or dish in a sufficiently large perforated
container.

Special applications
Defrost
It is much quicker to defrost items in the steam oven than at
room temperature.
Temperature
60 °C is the best temperature for defrosting.
Exception: 50 °C for minced meat and game
Before and after defrosting
Remove all packaging before defrosting. Exceptions:
Leave bread, biscuits and cakes in their packaging as
otherwise they will absorb moisture and become soft.
Allow defrosted food to stand at room temperature after
removing it from the oven. The standing time is necessary to
allow the even distribution of heat.
Cooking containers
Use a perforated container with the condensate tray
underneath it when defrosting food which will drip, such as
poultry. This way food will not be lying in defrosted liquid.
,It is particularly important to observe food hygiene
rules when defrosting poultry. Do not use the liquid from
defrosted poultry. Pour it away and wash the container,
the sink and your hands. Danger of salmonella poisoning.
Food which does not drip can be defrosted in a solid
container.
54
Special applications
Tips
Fish does not need to be fully defrosted before cooking.
Defrost so that the surface is sufficiently thawed to take herbs
and seasoning. Depending on the thickness of the fish, 2 - 5
minutes should be enough.
When defrosting food which has frozen together, e.g. berries,
chops, fish fillets etc. separate it about half-way through the
defrosting time.
Do not refreeze food once it has thawed.
Defrost frozen pre-cooked meals according to the
manufacturer's instructions.

Special applications
Bottling
Only use unblemished, fresh produce which is in good
condition for bottling.
Glass jars
Use clean glass jars and accessories and check them for any
defects. Glass jars with twist off lids or glass lids with a
rubber seal are suitable.
Make sure that all the glass jars are the same size so that
bottling is carried out evenly.
After you have filled the jars with the bottled produce, clean
the glass rims with a clean cloth and hot water and then seal
the jars.
Fruit
Sort fruit carefully, rinse it briefly but thoroughly and allow it to
drain. Take great care when cleaning soft fruit as it is very
delicate and squashes easily.
Remove any peel, stalks, cores or stones.
Cut up large fruit. For example, cut apples into slices.
If you are bottling fruit with stones (e.g. plums, apricots)
without removing the stones, pierce the fruit several times
with a fork or wooden skewers as otherwise it will burst.
Vegetables
Rinse, clean and cut up vegetables.
Green vegetables should be blanched before bottling to help
them retain their colour (see "Blanching").
Fill volume
Fill the glass jars with produce up to a maximum of 3 cm
below the rim. Do not pack it down as this will damage the
cell walls of the produce. Tap the jar gently onto a cloth to
help distribute the contents evenly.
Fill the jars with liquid. The produce must be completely
covered.
Use a sugar solution for fruit and a salt or vinegar solution for
vegetables.
58
Special applications
Tips
Make use of residual heat by leaving the jars in the oven for
30 minutes after it has switched off.
Then cover the jars with a cloth and allow to cool for approx.
24 hours.
Procedure
^ Push the condensate tray in on the lowest level with a
perforated container above it.
^ Place the jars on the rack (all the same size). Ensure that
they do not touch one another.

Special applications
Extracting juice with steam
You can use the steam oven to extract juices from soft fruit,
such as berries and cherries.
It is best to use overripe fruit, as the riper the fruit the greater
the quantity of juice produced. Very ripe fruit will also
produce a more intense flavour.
Preparation
Sort and clean the fruit. Cut out any blemishes.
Remove the stalks from grapes and morello cherries as these
are bitter. The stalks do not need to be removed from
strawberries, raspberries etc.
Tips
Try experimenting with mild and tart fruit.
Adding sugar will increase the quantity of juice produced and
improve the flavour. Sprinkle the fruit with sugar and leave to
absorb for a few hours before juicing. For 1 kg of sweet fruit
add 50–100 g of sugar, and for 1 kg of tart fruit add
100–150 g of sugar.
If you wish to bottle the juice rather than consume it straight
away, pour it whilst hot into hot, sterilised bottles and then
seal immediately with sterilised tops.
Procedure
^ Put the prepared fruit (cleaned, washed, chopped etc.) into
a perforated cooking container.
^ Place a solid container or the condensate tray underneath
to catch the juice.

Special applications
Making yoghurt
To make yoghurt, you will need either fresh live yoghurt or
yoghurt culture, obtainable from health food shops.
Use natural yoghurt with live culture and without additives.
Heat-treated yoghurt is not suitable.
The yoghurt must be fresh (short storage time)
You can use either unchilled long-life or fresh milk. Long-life
milk can be used without any further treatment. Fresh milk
must first be heated to 90 °C and then cooled down to 35 °C.
Do not boil it. Fresh milk will give a better set than long-life
milk.
The yoghurt and milk should have the same percentage fat.
Do not move or shake the jars whilst the yoghurt is thickening.
Immediately after preparation leave the yoghurt to cool in the
fridge.
How well home prepared yoghurt sets will depend on the
consistency, fat content and the cultures used in the starter
yogurt. Not all yoghurts are suitable for use as starter yoghurt.
Possible reasons for unsatisfactory results
Yoghurt has not set:
Incorrect storage of starter yoghurt, too much time out of the
refrigerator, e.g. in transportation, damaged packaging, milk
not sufficiently heated.
Liquid has separated:
The jars were moved, yoghurt was not cooled down quickly
enough.
Yoghurt is gritty:
Milk was overheated or in poor condition, milk and starter
yoghurt not evenly stirred.
