connected load) match the mains
electricity 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 an
extension lead.
Extension leads do not guarantee the
required safety of the appliance (e.g.
danger of overheating).
The electrical safety of this
appliance can only be guaranteed
when continuity is complete between it
and an effective earthing system which
complies with local and national safety
regulations. It is most important that this
basic safety requirement is present and
regularly tested, and where there is

Warning and Safety instructions
Use
General notes
Always ensure that food is
sufficiently cooked or reheated.
Many factors will affect the overall
cooking time, including the size and
amount of food, its initial temperature,
changes to recipe and the shape and
size of cooking container.
Some foods may contain
micro-organisms which are only
destroyed by thorough cooking,
therefore when cooking or re-heating
foods, e.g. poultry it is particularly
important that food is fully cooked
through (at temperatures of over 70°C
for more than 10 minutes). If in doubt,
select a longer cooking or reheating
time.
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, and by
observing a sufficiently long standing
time, which should be added to the
time needed for cooking, reheating or
defrosting.
Always remember that cooking
times using microwave power are
usually considerably shorter than with
traditional methods of food preparation
(Fan plus, Auto Roast, Grill, Fan Grill).
Excessively long cooking times can
lead to food drying out and burning, or
could even cause it to catch fire. Do not
use the microwave function to dry
breadcrumbs, flowers, herbs, grain etc.
Use the Fan plus function for this type
of procedure and do not leave the oven
unattended.
10
Do not use the microwave function
to heat up cushions or pads filled
with cherry kernels, wheat grain,
lavender or gel, such as those used in
aromatherapy. These pads can ignite
when heated even after they have been
removed from the appliance.
Exercise caution when cooking or
reheating food with a high sugar
content, e.g. Christmas pudding. If
heated for too long the sugar may
caramelise or ignite. Always ensure that
this type of procedure is supervised.
Do not use full power to warm
empty dishes. The lack of food or
incorrect loading could cause damage
to the appliance.
Do not leave the oven unattended
when cooking with oils and fats as
these can be a fire hazard if allowed to
overheat.
If smoke occurs in the oven, to
avoid fuelling any flame do not
open the oven door. Switch the
appliance off by pressing the ON/OFF
selector, switch off at the mains socket
and remove the plug from the socket.
Do not open the oven door until the
smoke has dispersed.
Only use the Miele roast probe
supplied with this appliance.
If a replacement is necessary it can be
obtained from the Miele Spare Parts
Department or your Miele dealer.
When not in use do not leave the
roast probe in the oven, especially
when grilling.
The high temperatures used for grilling
could cause plastic components on the
roast probe to melt.
Warning and Safety instructions
Never heat undiluted alcohol in the
oven as this can easily ignite.
Do not heat up tins in the
appliance. Pressure can build up
and they may explode, resulting in
injury or damage.
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.
Try to avoid the interior walls being
splashed with food or liquids
containing salt. If it does happen wipe
these away thoroughly, to avoid
corrosion on the stainless steel
surfaces.
If you wish to leave food in the
oven after cooking, e.g. to take
advantage of the residual heat, do not
turn the oven off. Simply select the
lowest temperature, and leave the
function at the position set.
Do not switch the appliance off until the
food has been removed. Otherwise
moisture in the oven could lead to
condensation forming on the control
panel and surrounding kitchen furniture
and drops of moisture collecting under
the worktop.
Condensation can:
The glass tray and the combi rack
take a maximum load of 8 kg.
Exceeding this weight limit can cause
them damage.
Do not lean or sit on an open oven
door, or place heavy items on it.
This could damage the appliance. The
oven door can support a maximum load
of 8 kg.
Never place the hot glass tray (or
any other hot cooking containers)
on a cold surface, such as a tiled or
granite worktop.
The glass tray or container could crack
or shatter and the worktop surface
could get damaged. Place it on a
suitable pot rest or a wire rack.
Do not use a steam-cleaning
appliance to clean this appliance.
Pressurised steam could reach the
electrical components and cause a
short circuit.
Do not use the appliance to heat
up the room. Due to the high
temperatures radiated, objects left near
the appliance could catch fire.
When using kitchen appliances
connected to sockets near the
appliance, ensure that the cable cannot
get trapped in a hot oven door, which
could melt the cable insulation and be
dangerous.
– damage the housing unit / worktop.
– lead to moisture damage in the oven.
11
Warning and Safety instructions
Microwave function
Before serving, remember to allow
a sufficient standing time and then
always check the temperature of the
food after taking it out of the oven. The
temperature of the container is not an
indication of the temperature of the
food or liquid in it. When heating food
and drink, remember that the heat is
created in the food itself and that the
container will normally be cooler. The
dish is only warmed by the heat of the
food.
This is particularly important when
preparing food for babies, children,
and the elderly or infirm.
Always stir or shake baby milk and food
after heating it up, and taste it first to
make sure it is not too hot.
Never cook or reheat food or
liquids in sealed containers, jars or
bottles.
With baby bottles, the screw top and
teat must be removed. Otherwise
pressure builds up which can cause
the bottle or container to explode
posing a severe risk of injury.
When heating liquids, the boiling
rod provided should always be
placed into the container.
When heating liquids, milk, sauces etc.,
using microwave heat without the
boiling rod, the boiling point of the
liquid may be reached without the
production of typical bubbles. The
liquid does not boil evenly throughout.
This so-called 'boiling delay' can cause
a sudden build up of bubbles, when the
container is removed from the oven or
shaken. This can lead to the liquid
boiling over suddenly and explosively.
Danger of burning.
The formation of bubbles can be so
strong that the pressure forces the oven
door open. The user could be injured
and the appliance damaged.
The boiling rod ensures that the liquid
boils evenly and that bubbles form at
an early stage during the operation.
12
Warning and Safety instructions
Do not use any containers or
cutlery made from or containing
metal, aluminium foil, lead crystal
glassware, temperature-sensitive
plastics, wooden utensils or cutlery,
metal clips or wire ties. Do not use
bowls with milled rims, or cream pots
with the tinfoil lid only partially removed.
Such items could be damaged or
cause a fire hazard.
The combi rack supplied with the
appliance must be used with the
glass tray. It is designed to be
compatible with microwaves and can
therefore be used with the microwave
function. Do not place it on the oven
floor.
N.B. It gets hot when using the
microwave function. Danger of burning.
Do not leave the oven unattended
when reheating or cooking food in
disposable containers made of plastic,
paper or other inflammable materials.
Before using single use containers
make sure they are suitable for use in
microwave ovens. See appropriate
section.
Eggs can only be cooked in their
shells using microwave heat in a
specially designed egg-boiling device
available from specialist shops.
Similarly, hard-boiled eggs should not
be reheated using microwave heat as
this may lead to the eggs exploding,
even after they have been taken out of
the oven.
Eggs can be cooked without their
shells using microwave heat only if
the yolk membrane has been
punctured several times first. The
pressure could otherwise cause the
egg yolk to explode. Danger of injury.
Do not reheat food in the oven in
heat-retaining bags which are
intended for use in normal ovens.
These heat-retaining bags usually
contain a thin layer of aluminium foil
which reflects microwaves. This
reflected energy can, in turn, cause the
outer paper covering to become so hot
that it ignites.
Food with a thick skin or peel, such
as tomatoes, sausages, jacket
potatoes and aubergines, should be
pierced or cut in several places to allow
steam to escape and prevent the food
from bursting.
Ovenproof earthenware can retain
a considerable amount of moisture.
Earthenware and porcelain containers
with hollow handles and lid knobs must
only be used with the microwave
function if they have vent holes, which
allow the moisture to escape. Without
vent holes there can be a pressure
build-up, causing the container to crack
or shatter, with the danger of injury.
To check food temperature, first
interrupt the cooking process.
Then use a thermometer specifically
approved for food use to measure the
temperature of the food. Never use a
thermometer containing mercury or
liquid, as these are not suitable for use
with very high temperatures and will
break very easily.
13
Warning and Safety instructions
Traditional oven functions:
Fan plus, Auto roast, Grill, Fan grill
Caution. Danger of burning.
When the oven is being used as a
traditional oven it can get very hot.
Great care should be taken to
ensure that small children do not
touch the oven when it is being used.
Children's skin is far more sensitive to
high temperatures than that of adults.
External parts of the oven such as the
door glass, vents, handle and fascia
panel can become quite hot.
Danger of burning.
Wear oven gloves when placing
food in the oven, turning it or
removing it. When the Grill is being
used, either solo or in a combination
programme, the element becomes very
hot and there is a danger of burning.
Wait until the grill element has
cooled down before lowering it for
cleaning. Danger of burning! Do not
use force to lower it as this can cause it
to break.
In countries where there are areas
which may be subject to infestation
by cockroaches or other vermin, pay
particular attention to keeping the
appliance and its surroundings in a
clean condition at all times. Any
damage which may be caused by
cockroaches or other vermin will not be
covered by the guarantee.

Disposal of your old appliance
Before disposing of your old
appliance, first make it unusable.
Disconnect it from the mains, cut off the
cable near the appliance and render
any plug unusable. Appliances which
have been built-in should be
disconnected from the mains supply by
a qualified person. This will prevent the
appliance from being misused.
The manufacturer cannot be held
liable for damage caused by
non-compliance with these Warning
and Safety instructions.
Caring for the environment
Disposal of the packing
material
The transport and protective packing
has been selected from materials which
are environmentally friendly for disposal
and can normally be recycled.
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!
Disposal of your old appliance
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.
Please do not therefore dispose of your
old appliance with your household
waste.
Rather than just throwing these
materials away, please ensure they are
offered for recycling.
Please dispose of it at your local
community waste collection / recycling
centre and ensure that it presents no
danger to children while being stored
for disposal.
It should be unplugged or disconnected
from the mains electricity supply by a
competent person. The plug must be
rendered useless and the cable cut off
directly behind it to prevent misuse.
See the "Warning and Safety" section of
this booklet for further details.

Functions and features
Safety features
Energy saving functions
System lock
Door contact switch
This safety feature prevents functions
being entered unintentionally (see
"Settings - Safety").
If the door is opened during a
programme, the heating element and
fan are automatically switched off.
The programme will continue to run
again as soon as you shut the door and
confirm "Start". If the door is opened
during a conventional programme, i.e.
one without microwave power, the
programme will continue to run again
as soon as the door is shut. You do not
need to start it again.
Safety cut-out
A process using a traditional oven
function can be started without
programming in a time. To prevent
over-use and the consequent danger of
fire, the appliance switches off
automatically after a certain length of
time. This can be between 1 hour and
10 hours depending on the function
and temperature chosen.
If the microwave is switched off in
between using two microwave cooking
processes, there will be a delay of
about 30 seconds before the new
setting is accepted. Therefore wait a
short while before starting the second
process.
Making use of residual heat
With Fan plus and Auto roast the
heating shuts off automatically if the
ambient temperature is sufficient to
finish cooking the food and the door
has not been opened. Whenever heat is
lost, e.g. if the door is opened, the
heating will switch on again
automatically.
Optional oven interior lighting
You can turn off the oven interior
lighting if you do not want it to remain
on during the entire cooking process.
17
Operating modes
Microwave function
Microwave cooking offers the benefits
of speed, convenience and nutritional
advantages when food does not require
browning or crisping.
The following power levels can be
selected:
80 W, 150 W, 300 W, 450 W, 600 W,
850 W and 1000 W.
How does the microwave oven
function?
In a microwave oven there is a
high-frequency tube called a
magnetron. This converts electrical
energy into microwaves. These
microwaves are distributed evenly
throughout the oven interior and
rebound off the metal sides of the oven
interior to reach the food from all sides.
In order for microwaves to reach the
food, they must be able to penetrate
the cooking utensil being used.
Microwaves can penetrate porcelain,
glass, cardboard and plastics, but not
metal. Do not, therefore, use utensils
made of metal, or which contain metal,
for example in the form of gold or silver
trim. The metal reflects the microwaves
and this could lead to the creation of
sparks. The microwaves cannot be
absorbed.
Microwaves pass through a suitable
container and find their way directly into
the food.
18
All food contains moisture molecules
which, when subjected to microwave
energy, start to oscillate 2.5 thousand
million times a second. The friction
caused by this vibration creates heat,
which first starts developing around the
outside of the food and then slowly
penetrates towards the centre.
The moisture, fat and sugar content of
food will affect the speed at which it is
cooked.
As heat is produced directly in the
food,
– food can generally be cooked
without adding much liquid or
cooking oil.
– cooking, reheating and defrosting in
a microwave oven is quicker than
using conventional methods.
– nutrients, such as vitamins and
minerals, are generally retained.
– the colour, texture and taste of food
are not impaired.
Microwaves stop being produced as
soon as the cooking process is
interrupted or the appliance door is
opened.
When the appliance is in operation, the
closed, sealed door prevents
microwaves escaping from the
appliance.
Operating modes
Traditional oven functions
Auto roast
This oven offers the following traditional
oven functions:
After the selected temperature is
entered, the oven heats initially to a
high temperature which seals the meat
to keep it succulent and tasty. The oven
temperature is then automatically
returned to the pre-selected setting
after this initial boost of heat.
– Fan plus
– Auto roast
– Grill
– Fan grill
These cook and brown the food.
Fan plus
This system works by the circulation of
heated air.
A fan in the back wall draws in the air,
heats it over a heater element and
blows it back into the oven cavity
through the carefully spaced openings
in the back panel.
The oven does not usually need to be
pre-heated as the heated air reaches
the food straight away. Pre-heating may
be necessary for foods such as puff
pastry and yeast mixtures where instant
heat is required to make them rise
quickly.
Grill
The grill is ready for use when it glows
red a few minutes after being switched
on. Pre-heat the with the oven door
closed for approx. 5 minutes before
starting to cook. Grill with the oven door
closed.
Fan grill
The hot air from the grill is distributed
over the food by the fan on the back
wall of the oven. This enables a lower
temperature to be selected than for
normal oven grilling. Pre-heat the with
the oven door closed for approx. 5
minutes before starting to cook. Grill
with the oven door closed.
When using Fan plus, you can bake
and roast on two different levels at the
same time.
19
Operating modes
Combination programmes
Automatic programmes
– Microwave + Fan plus
– Defrosting
– Microwave + Auto roast
– Reheating
– Microwave + Grill
– Cooking
– Microwave + Fan grill
Food can be cooked, reheated or
defrosted using microwave power or
combination programmes. Automatic
programmes are dependent on weight,
i.e. after selecting the appropriate food
group, you then enter the weight of the
food and the microwave power setting
and time will be calculated
automatically.
The combination programmes enable
food to be reheated and cooked
quickly with even browning results.
The combination programmes enable
the grill or the fan setting to be used in
conjunction with the microwave facility.
The Microwave + Fan plus combination
programme is the most effective
because the heat reaches the food to
be baked or cooked immediately,
giving the greatest savings in both time
and energy.
In general when using the combination
programmes, you should not set the
microwave power level higher than
150 W for baking, and not higher than
450 W for cooking, roasting and grilling.

Suitable containers for microwave ovens
Microwaves
When using microwave power you
should always place the food / dish
centrally on the glass tray and slide
the tray into the first shelf level from
the bottom. Placing the dish on the
floor of the oven will give
unsatisfactory and uneven results.
Material and shape
– are reflected by metal,
The material and shape of containers
used affect cooking results and times.
Heat distribution is more even in round
and oval shaped flat containers than in
rectangular containers, providing better
results.
Metal
– pass through glass, porcelain,
plastic and card,
Metal containers, aluminium foil and
metal cutlery, or china with metallic
decoration such as gold rims or
cobalt blue must not be used in
microwave mode.
The metal reflects the microwaves,
hindering the cooking process.
Exceptions:
– and are absorbed by food.
38
– If recommended by the producer,
pre-cooked meals in aluminium foil
containers can be defrosted and
reheated in the appliance using
microwave power. Important:
Remove the lid first.
However, as food is only heated from
the top it is better to remove the food
from the aluminium foil container and
transfer it to a dish suitable for a
microwave oven. The heat
distribution will be more even.
Suitable containers for microwave ovens
Do not place aluminium foil
containers on the metal rack as this
can cause arcing to occur and
damage the oven.
– For even defrosting and to avoid
overcooking unevenly shaped cuts of
meat, poultry or fish, small pieces of
aluminium foil may be used to mask
wing-tips or other thin parts for the
last few minutes of the process.
Glassware
Heat-resistant glass or ceramic glass
are ideal for use in the microwave oven.
Crystal glass contains lead which
could cause the glass to crack.
Glass dishes with a milled rim are
subject to the same risk.
Both are unsuitable.
Porcelain
Make sure that the aluminium foil is
at least 2 cm from the oven walls at
all times. It must not touch the walls.
– Metal meat skewers or clamps
should only be used if they are very
small in comparison to the size of the
cut of meat.
The combi rack supplied with the
appliance is suitable for use with
microwave power. However, it must not
be placed on the oven floor.
The rack can get hot.
Porcelain is a suitable material.
Do not use porcelain with gold or
silver edging or items with hollow
knobs or handles, as insufficient
ventilation may cause pressure.
Earthenware
Decorated earthenware is only suitable
if the decoration is beneath an all-over
glaze.
Earthenware can get very hot, and
may crack.
Glazes and colours
Some glazes and colours contain
metals which make them unsuitable
for use in a microwave oven.
39
Suitable containers for microwave ovens
Plastics
Plastics must only be used with
Microwave Solo. They must be
heat-resistant to a minimum of
110 °C. Otherwise the plastic may
melt and fuse with the food.
Do not use metal clips, plastic clips
containing metal parts or paper ties
containing wire.
There is a danger that they will ignite
when heated.
Wood
Special plastic utensils designed for
use in microwave ovens are available
from good retail outlets. When
purchasing plasticware, make sure that
it is suitable for use in a microwave
oven.
Melamine is not suitable for use in this
oven. Melamine absorbs microwave
energy and gets hot.
Plastic boiling bags can be used for
cooking and reheating.
They should be pierced beforehand so
that steam can escape. This prevents a
build-up of pressure and reduces the
risk of the bag bursting.
Roasting bags and tubes
Roasting tubes should be about 40 cm
longer and roasting bags about 20 cm
longer than the food being roasted, and
carefully tied with string. Turn the ends
over and secure them. The bag should
be pierced according to the
manufacturer's instructions.
40
Wooden dishes are not suitable.
Moisture contained in the wood
evaporates when exposed to
microwave energy, causing the wood to
dry and crack.
Disposable containers
Only those plastic disposable
containers which are specified by the
manufacturer as suitable for use in a
microwave oven may be used.
Disposable containers, such as trays
made from polystyrene, can only be
used for very short timed warming and
reheating the food.
Do not leave the oven unattended
when reheating or cooking food in
disposable containers made of
plastic, paper or other inflammable
materials.
Disposable containers are not always
recyclable or bio-degradable.
Suitable containers for microwave ovens
Testing dishes for their
suitability
If in doubt as to whether glass,
earthenware or porcelain plates or
dishes are suitable for use in a
microwave oven, a simple test can be
performed:
This test cannot be used to check
whether items with hollow knobs or
handles are suitable for use with
microwave power.
^ Place the empty container centrally
on the glass tray and slide into the
lowest shelf level.
^ Close the door.
A microwave oven process cannot
be started until the door is closed.
^ Touch the ON/OFF sensor to call up
the main menu.
^ Select Microwave.
The highest microwave power level is
then highlighted (1000 W).
^ Confirm with "OK".
^ Enter a duration of 30 seconds and
confirm with "OK".
If a crackling noise is heard
accompanied by sparks during the
test, switch off the appliance immediately by touching the ON/OFF
sensor.
Any crockery which causes this
reaction is unsuitable for use with
microwave power.
If any doubt exists about the
suitability of containers, please
contact the supplier.
41
Suitable containers for microwave ovens
A cover
– prevents too much steam escaping,
especially when cooking foods which
need longer to cook, such as
potatoes.
Sealed glass containers, such as
jars of baby food must be opened
before they are placed in the oven.
Do not attempt to heat them up
unopened.
– speeds up the cooking process.
– prevents food from drying out.
– prevents any loss of aroma.
– helps keep the oven interior clean.
Do not use a cover if
– food coated with breadcrumbs is
being cooked.
– cooking meals which are to be given
a crisp finish.
– using a combination programme.
The cover supplied may only be
used in microwave-solo operation.
The cover can only withstand
temperatures of up to 110 °C.
Higher temperatures generated by
grilling or fan heat could cause the
plastic to distort and fuse with the
food.
Always use lids or covers made of
microwave-safe glass or plastic, or use
a clingfilm recommended for use in a
microwave oven, (pierce as instructed
by the manufacturer).
Unsuitable clingfilm can melt into the
food.
42
The cover must not create a seal
over the container. If the cover is
used with a container which only has
a narrow diameter, condensation
may not be able to escape through
the holes in the cover. The cover
could get too hot and could start to
melt.
Defrost
The microwave function can be used to
defrost food gently and quickly.
Important when using an automatic
programme for defrosting:
The following settings are
recommended as a general guide:
When defrosting a large amount of food
which has been wrapped in individual
portions, enter a lower total weight than
the actual total weight.
This will give a more even result.
Example:
1.5 kg sliced steak packed into
3 individual 500 g portions
Enter weight as: 1000 g instead of
1500 g
– 80 W
for defrosting very delicate food, e.g.
cream, butter, gateau and cheese.
– 150 W
for defrosting everything else.
The appropriate automatic programmes
are ideal for defrosting.
See the chart on the next page for
defrosting durations.
^ Remove the food from its packaging
and place it in a microwave-safe
container.
^ Place the container centrally on the
glass tray and slide into the lowest
shelf level.
If defrosting a large quantity, e.g. 2 kg
of fish, you can place the food directly
on the glass tray and then slide it into
the lowest shelf level.
Turn, stir or separate the food about
half-way through the defrosting time.
The automatic programme has an
audible tone which sounds as a
reminder.
After defrosting
Allow the food to stand at room
temperature long enough to allow the
temperature to spread evenly
throughout the food.

Reheat
The microwave function is particularly
suitable for reheating food.
Select the following microwave power
settings to reheat food
drinks. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 1000 W
food . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 850 W or 600 W
baby food . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 450 W
Food for babies and young children
or the elderly must not be allowed to
get too hot. We do not recommend
heating or reheating foods or drinks
for babies or young children in the
microwave oven. Any decision to do
this is the responsibility of the user,
and should only be done with the
utmost care. Pasteurised or
sterilised cooked food should be
gently heated using 450 watts, and
tasted to make sure it is not too hot
for a baby’s palate before serving.
When reheating other food or drink,
heat to a high temperature and allow
to cool to a suitable heat for eating.
For formula milk follow the
manufacturer’s instructions.
The appropriate automatic programmes
are also ideal for reheating.
Always use a lid or cover for reheating
food, except when a drier finish is
needed, e.g. breaded poultry/meat.
Always remove the lids from jars,
e.g. jars of baby food.
Remove the rubber teat and screw
cap before warming baby bottles.
When reheating liquids, place the
boiling rod supplied with the
appliance into the cup or glass.
Never reheat hard boiled eggs using
microwave power, even without the
shell. The eggs can explode.
The time required depends largely on
the nature of the food, the amount and
its initial temperature. Food taken
straight from the refrigerator takes
longer to reheat than food stored at
room temperature.
Always ensure that food is
sufficiently reheated.
If in any doubt that a sufficiently high
temperature has been reached,
continue reheating for a little longer.
Stir or turn food from time to time during
reheating.
With the automatic programme a
buzzer sounds as a reminder. Stir the
food from the outside towards the
middle, as food heats more quickly
from the outside.
45
Reheat
After reheating
Be careful when removing a dish
from the oven. It may be hot.
Although heat is not normally produced
in the container itself by the
microwaves (apart from stoneware),
heat transfer from the food to the
container may be considerable, making
the container itself hot.
Allow food to stand for a few minutes at
room temperature once a programme
has ended to allow the heat to be
distributed evenly.
After reheating food, especially food
for babies and small children, stir
the food or shake the container and
check that the temperature does not
pose any danger. Double check
after it has been left to stand.

**** Use the appropriate automatic programme.
For food not normally stored in a fridge assume an initial temperature of 20 °C.
All food except delicate sauces should be reheated to 70 – 75 °C. Temperature should be tested for
palatability before serving to babies, young children, the elderly or infirm. See note on food and drink
for babies.
The information given in this chart is intended only as a guide.
47
Cooking
Microwave, traditional and combination
programmes are all suitable for
cooking.
Food taken straight from the refrigerator
requires longer to reheat than food
stored at room temperature.
Microwave
This method is suitable for cooking
casseroles as well as dishes with pasta,
rice and semolina etc. which need
water to help them swell up.
First select 850 W to bring the food up
to a boil and then turn the power level
down to 450 W to continue cooking or
to 150 W for simmering.
Stir and turn food at least once during
cooking. With the automatic
programme a buzzer sounds as a
reminder.
Fan plus
This method is recommended for
cooking and steaming food such as
potatoes and vegetables.
Microwave + Fan plus
This method is useful when you want to
shorten cooking times and have a
browned finish to the dish.
Microwave + Grill
This method is good for cooking food
which needs a well cooked top or
browned finished to it, such as
macaroni cheese or pasta tuna bake.
Microwave
Place the food in a microwave-safe dish
and cover it.
Place the dish on the glass tray and
slide into the lowest shelf level.
Add a little water to vegetables which
have been kept stored. Vegetable
cooking times depend on the texture of
the vegetable. Fresh vegetables
contain more water than vegetables
which have been stored and usually
cook more quickly.
48
Food with a thick skin or peel, such as
tomatoes, sausages, jacket potatoes
and aubergines, should be pierced or
cut in several places to allow steam to
escape and prevent the food from
bursting.
Similarly, hard-boiled eggs should
not be cooked using microwave
power as this may lead to the eggs
exploding, even after they have
been taken out of the oven. Eggs
can, however, be cooked using
microwave power if you have
purchased special containers
designed for this purpose.
Eggs can be cooked without their shells
using microwave power only if the yolk
membrane has been punctured several
times first. The pressure could
otherwise cause the egg yolk to
explode.
Cooking

Combination programmes
^ Slide the glass tray with the combi
rack into the first shelf level from the
bottom.
^ Place the dish on the glass tray and
slide into the lowest shelf level.
The following containers are suitable:
Ovenproof glass, china and
earthenware pots with heat-resistant
handles and knobs.
Cover dishes which are to be cooked in
their own juice and/or steam, e.g.
potatoes or vegetables. This also
prevents the food from drying out.
Where a crisp finish is required e.g. for
meat, cook without a lid.
Only use heat-resistant,
microwave-safe crockery. No metal.
Generally you can cook without a lid
when using the combination
programmes.
Never use a lid when using Microwave
+ Grill! The food will not brown!
Ensure that foods such as meat and
fish are thoroughly cooked for an
appropriate length of time.

Defrosting and Reheating / Cooking
For simultaneous defrosting and
reheating or cooking the following
functions are suitable:
– Microwave
– Microwave + Grill
Microwave is suitable for defrosting
and then reheating or cooking deep
frozen ready made meals which you do
not wish to brown.
Microwave + Grill is suitable for ready
made meals which also need to be
browned.
Microwave
Deep frozen ready made meals can be
defrosted and then reheated or cooked.
Please follow instructions given on the
packet.
Remove the food from its packaging
and place in a covered microwave-safe
dish for defrosting and reheating or
cooking. Soups, stew and vegetables
should be stirred several times during
the process. Carefully separate and
turn slices of meat halfway through the
programme. Turn pieces of fish at the
halfway stage.
Deep-frozen ready made meals in card
trays which, according to
manufacturer’s instructions, are suitable
for use in a normal oven, are normally
also microwave-safe.
52
Combination programme
Select Microwave + Grill for cooking
ready made meals, which are to be
crisped and browned. Select a
microwave power level of 450 watts.
The grill temperature is automatically
set and cannot be changed.
Put the ready made meal in a heat
resistant, microwave-proof dish, and
place on the glass tray. Slide the glass
tray into the second shelf level. Do not
cover.
Ready made meals in aluminium dishes
must be placed directly on to the glass
tray.
If this does not brown the food as much
as you would like, next time put the dish
on the rack, and slide this together with
the glass tray into the first level from the
bottom.
Grilling
This oven offers several grill settings:
Grill, Fan Grill, Microwave + Grill and
Microwave + Fan Grill.
Grill is suitable for flat items such as
cutlets, steak, burgers, toast etc.
Fan grill is suitable for grilling thick
cuts, e.g. rolled meat, poultry.
In the Combination programmes
microwave power output is limited to
450 W for the entire duration of the
programme.
Preparing food for 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. Add a little oil if
necessary. Do not use other types of fat
as they can get too dark, burn and
cause smoke. A little butter can be
added to chicken if desired.
Clean flat fish and slices of fish in the
normal way. To enhance the taste add a
little salt or squeeze a little lemon juice
over the fish.
Grilling
The grill temperature cannot be altered,
the grill is either on or off.
Pre-heat the grill for approx. 5 minutes
with the oven door shut before grilling.
Do not engage microwave power
during the pre-heating phase.
Brush the rack with oil and place the
prepared food on the rack.
grilling time for each item does not vary
too greatly.
Place the rack on the glass tray and
slide into the second or third shelf level
from the bottom, depending on the type
of food you are grilling.
The rack can be used either way up to
achieve the best distance from the grill
element.
Most items should be turned half way
through cooking.
Fan grill
It is usually best to use the lowest shelf
level. The rack can be used either way
up. Using the rack with the raised
section facing upwards allows more
space underneath the food for hot air to
circulate. If necessary you can use the
second shelf level from the bottom, for
instance where the meat is not too thick
or large.
Test to see if cooked
One way of finding out how far through
a piece of meat has been cooked is to
press down on it with a spoon:
– If there is very little resistance to the
pressure of the spoon, it is still red on
the inside ("rare").
– If there is some resistance the inside
will be pink ("medium").
– If there is great resistance, it is
throughly cooked through ("well
done").
It is best to grill food of a similar
thickness at the same time so that the

Roasting
The following settings are suitable for
roasting:
– Auto roast
– Microwave + Auto roast
Use Auto roast to give meat or poultry
a crisp browned finish.
Select the combination programme to
cook in a shorter time.
The combination programme is not
usually suitable for cooking roast beef
or fillet steak. The centre would be too
well cooked before the exterior is
browned.
Put meat or poultry into the oven
without pre-heating.
Exception: Pre-heat at the temperature
suggested when cooking beef and beef
fillet.
Cooking in a covered pot is highly
recommended:
– the meat stays succulent,
– the oven interior stays cleaner than
when roasting on the rack.
– this ensures that sufficient stock
remains for making gravy.
Half way through the cooking time
remove the lid from the pot if browning
the meat.
Auto roast
Slide the glass tray with the combi rack
into the first shelf level from the bottom.
Roasting pots with a lid, made from
earthenware, cast iron, ovenproof china
or glass, and roasting foil are suitable.
Make sure that the pot and lid have
heat-resistant handles.
Place the dish directly on the glass tray.
The roasting time will depend on the
type of meat, the size and thickness of
the cut, and can be calculated as
follows:
The traditional method is to calculate 20
mins per lb plus 20 mins over.
The larger the roast, the lower the
temperature to be selected. For cuts
above 3 kg select a temperature
approx. 10 °C lower than that given in
the roasting chart. Roasting will take
longer at the lower temperature, but will
be more even.
To roast on the rack place the rack with
the raised side upwards on the glass
tray and set the temperature 20°C lower
than for pot roasting.
Do not select a higher temperature than
that advised. This would brown, but not
completely cook the meat.
55
Roasting
Microwave + Auto roast
Useful hints
Slide the glass tray with the rack into
the first runner level from the bottom.
Roasting in a covered pot
Use only heat resistant pots, with no
metal in the pot or lid. Microwaves
cannot penetrate metal to reach the
food in the pot.
If using roasting foil
– cut the foil approx. 40 cm longer than
the piece of food
– and tie carefully. Make sure the pot,
foil and ties are suitable for
microwave use.
After selecting an Auto roast
temperature, select a microwave setting
for the total cooking time of:
– 300 W for roasting meat or fish,
– 150 W for roasting poultry.
After the roasting process is
finished
Take the roast out of the oven, wrap in
aluminium foil and leave to stand for
about 10 minutes. This helps retain the
juices when the meat is carved.
Season the meat and place in the pot.
Add some knobs of butter or margarine
or baste with a little oil or cooking fat.
Add about 1/8 litre of water when
roasting a big lean joint of meat (2-3 kg)
or roasting poultry with a high fat
content.
Browning only occurs towards the end
of the roasting time. 15 - 20 minutes
before the end of roasting time take the
lid off the pot.
Roasting on the rack
Add a little fat or oil to very lean meat or
place a few strips of streaky bacon on
the top.
Do not add too much liquid to the tray
during cooking as this will hinder the
browning process.
Please note that open roasting can give
rise to excessive smoke.
The temperature required can be set
20°C lower than for pot roasting.
Roasting poultry
For a crisp finish, baste the poultry ten
minutes before the end of cooking time
with slightly salted water.
Frozen meat
Deep frozen meat should be thoroughly
defrosted before roasting.
56
Using the roast probe
This appliance is supplied with a roast
probe, which enables the roasting
process to be monitored simply and
reliably.
The tip of the probe is pushed into the
centre of the meat where it measures
the core temperature continuously.
When the pre-selected core
temperature is reached, the oven
heating is switched off automatically.
The roast probe can be used with the
following functions:
– Auto roast
– Fan plus
– Microwave (Solo and combination
programmes)
Using the roast probe
^ Prepare the meat in the usual way.
^ Insert the probe into the meat until
the tip of the probe reaches the
centre of the meat.
Please note:
You can place the meat in a pot or on
the rack on the glass tray. Roasting
bags or foil may also be used. Insert
the probe through the foil or bag into
the centre of the meat.
If fat or bone come into contact with the
probe, this can lead to the oven being
switched off too early. Therefore:
– do not let the probe touch any
bones.
– do not insert it into a particularly fatty
area of the meat.
If the meat is very heavily marbled with
fat, select the highest core temperature
given in the roasting chart.
The roast probe should not be used
with poultry or fish. Because of the
amount of bone and cavity space it is
difficult to find a good place to insert
the probe.
57
Using the roast probe
^ Place the food in the oven.
As soon as the core temperature
selected has been reached
– the "Programme finished" message
will appear in the display.
– the audible tone will sound. (See
"Settings - Buzzer tones" for details
on how to alter the tone).
– the oven will switch itself off
automatically.
– the cooling fan will continue to run for
a while.
^ Insert the plug of the roast probe into
the socket until you feel it engage.
Note
^ Close the door.
You can also delay the start of the
programme.
^ Select the required function.
The recommended oven tempterature
(e.g. 160 °C) and the recommended
core temperature of 60°C will appear
in the display.
When finished, cover the meat with
aluminium foil and allow to stand for
approx. 10 minutes. During this time
the core temperature rises another
5 – 10°C.
^ Alter the recommended oven
temperature if necessary
You may need to insert the probe in a
different place and start again, if:
^ Call up and change the "Core
temperature".
– the cut of meat was too large (3 kg or
more) for the probe to be inserted
right to the centre.
The core temperature required will
depend on what is being roasted. See
the Roasting chart for suggested
temperatures.
Once the programme has started, the
core temperature rise can be followed
in the display.
The cooking duration is calculated
automatically.
58
– the meat is not sufficiently roasted to
your taste.
The duration for roasting meat by
temperature using the probe is similar
to the duration when cooking by time.

Baking
The following settings are suitable for
baking:
not be as good as with dark
non-reflective tins.
– Fan plus
Baking times should not be set too
long. This can lead to the cake etc.
drying out.
– Microwave + Fan plus
Fan plus is suitable for baking small
cakes, swiss roll and pastries.
Microwave + Fan plus
Microwave + Fan plus is suitable for
doughs which require longer baking,
such as rubbed in and beaten mixtures,
yeast recipes and cheesecake.
Fan plus
^ Slide the glass tray into the 1st shelf
level from the bottom, and place the
baking container on it.
Cake tins should be placed on the first
shelf level from the bottom. Place the
rack with the raised section facing
upwards in the glass tray. This ensures
sufficient air circulation all around the
tin.
When baking flat items such as biscuits
you should select the second shelf level
from the bottom to ensure even
browning results.
When baking on two levels at the same
time select the second and third shelf
levels from the bottom.
Any heat-resistant material is suitable
for baking in.
Thin-walled and bright, non-reflective
metal tins can be used, but results may
60
For preference use ovenproof glass or
ceramic baking dishes, as microwaves
can penetrate these materials into the
food being cooked. Metal tins would
reflect microwaves so that they would
only reach the cakes from the top,
resulting in a longer cooking time.
Metal baking tins can also cause
sparking. Place the tin on the glass tray,
and make sure it does not touch the
interior walls.
If sparking continues, do not use this tin
again in microwave combination mode.
Do not use paper based containers
coated with aluminium foil, such as
are sometimes provided with packet
cake mixes. There is the danger of
these catching fire.
Baking
Switch on the microwave setting for the
total cooking time. The microwave
setting should not be higher than
150 W.
Tips on baking
Temperature settings, times and
microwave power settings in the
Baking Chart are suggestions only.
Select an average temperature and
time for first attempts and adapt
accordingly.
Place cakes in rectangular tins with
the longer side across the width of the
oven for optimum heat distribution and
even results.
Eating food which has been cooked
correctly is important for good
health.
Only bake cakes, pizza, chips etc
until they are golden brown. Do not
allow them to become dark brown.
To achieve even results without
over-browning the food . . .
. . . when baking cakes, pastries, deep
frozen foods such as chips, croquettes,
frozen pizza, baguettes etc.
– always select the lowest temperature
given in the recipe/cooking
instructions on the packaging.
Do not set a temperature higher than
that recommended. Increasing the
temperature may reduce the cooking
time, but will lead to uneven
browning, and unsatisfactory
cooking results.
– 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.
– Place chips, croquettes and similar
types of food on baking parchment.

Cleaning and care
Oven interior and inside of the
door
The oven interior and the inside of
the door are hot after use.
Danger of burning.
Wait until the interior, inside of the
door and the door seal have cooled
down before cleaning them. Clean
the oven at regular intervals,
perferably after each use. Waiting
too long can make cleaning
unnecessarily difficult and in some
cases impossible.
In certain circumstances, very heavy
soiling can even damage the
appliance.
Check the oven interior, door and door
seal at regular intervals for any sign of
damage.
If any damage is noticed, the oven
should not be used again in
microwave mode until the fault has
been rectified by a service
technician.
The oven interior is stainless steel. The
high temperatures possible when
operating in a traditional oven mode
can cause the steel to darken slightly.
Clean the oven interior, inside of the
door and door seal using warm water
with a little washing-up liquid applied
with a soft spong or cloth. Wipe dry
with a soft cloth.
For more heavy soiling, heat a glass of
water for 2 to 3 minutes until the water
begins to boil. The steam will collect on
the walls and soften the soiling. The
oven interior can now be wiped clean
using a little washing-up liquid if
necessary.
If food has burnt on, use a mild
non-abrasive cleaner or a proprietary
cleaner for stainless steel, applied with
a non-scouring kitchen sponge.
Do not use abrasive cleaning agents
as the material is susceptible to
scratching.
Do not use sharp metal tools to
clean glass as these can scratch the
surface.
If using an oven spray, the
manufacturer's instructions must be
followed. Do not spray into any of
the openings.
Do not use too much water on the cloth
or sponge and do not let water or any
other substance find its way into any
openings.
To neutralise odours in the oven, put a
cup of water with some lemon juice in
the oven and simmer for a few minutes.
Residues of fruit juices as well as cake
mixtures are best removed while the
oven is warm.
Spilt fruit juices may cause lasting
discolouration to the surfaces.
63
Cleaning and care
Oven interior roof
Appliance front
If the oven interior roof is badly soiled,
the grill element can be lowered to
make cleaning easier.
^ All surfaces and controls should be
cleaned using an E-Cloth or with
warm water with a little washing up
liquid applied with a soft sponge or
cloth.
Wait until the grill element has
cooled down before lowering it to
avoid the danger of being burnt.
^ Wipe the surfaces dry using a soft
cloth.
Clean the door handle and the control
elements regularly, preferably after
each use.
This will help prevent grease and other
deposits adhering to surfaces and
becoming difficult to remove.
E-Cloth
^ To lower the grill element loosen and
then remove the nut.
A micro-fibre "E-Cloth" is available from
the Miele UK Spare Parts Department,
which is suitable for cleaning surfaces
such as stainless steel, glass, plastic
and chrome without the use of
chemicals.
Glass surfaces
Glass surfaces are susceptible to
scratches and abrasions.
Avoid:
^ Lower the grill element gently.
Do not use force to lower the
element as this could break it.
^ After cleaning the grill element, raise
it gently back up again. Refit the nut
and tighten to secure the grill
element back in position.
64
– abrasive cleaning agents, e.g.
powder cleaners and cream
cleaners,
– abrasive sponges, e.g. pot scourers
or sponges which have been
previously used with abrasive
cleaning agents,
– sharp metal tools,
– oven sprays.
Cleaning and care
Aluminium fronted appliances
Stainless steel fronted appliances
Aluminium is affected by the way that
light falls on it, by the surrounding
environment and by the angle you
observe it from.
Stainless steel surfaces are susceptible
to scratches and abrasion.
Aluminium surfaces and controls
may suffer discolouration or damage
if soiling is left on them for too long.
Remove any soiling straight away.
Aluminium surfaces are susceptible to
scratches and abrasion.
Avoid:
– cleaning agents containing soda,
acids or chlorides,
– abrasive cleaning agents, e.g.
powder cleaners and cream
cleaners,
– abrasive sponges, e.g. pot scourers
or sponges which have been
previously used with abrasive
cleaning agents,
– stainless steel cleaners,
– cleaning agents containing
descaling agents,
Stainless steel surfaces can be cleaned
using a Miele E-Cloth or with a
proprietary non-abrasive cleaning
agent designed specifically for use on
stainless steel.
Avoid:
– cleaning agents containing soda,
acids or chlorides,
– abrasive cleaning agents, e.g.
powder cleaners and cream
cleaners,
– abrasive sponges, e.g. pot scourers,
or sponges which have been
previously used with abrasive
cleaning agents.
To help prevent re-soiling, a
conditioning agent for stainless steel
such as Neoblank (available from the
Miele Spare Parts Department) can also
be used.
Apply sparingly following the
manufacturer's instructions on the
packaging.
– dishwasher detergent,
– oven sprays.
65
Cleaning and care
Accessories supplied
Combi rack
Wash and dry the rack after each use.
Remove stubborn soiling with a
stainless steel cleaner.
Glass trays
The glass trays can be washed in hot
water and washing up liquid, or in the
dishwasher.
Do not use scouring agents. These
would scratch.
Boiling rod
The boiling rod can be washed in a
dishwasher.
Roast probe
This should be wiped clean with a
damp cloth only.
Do not put the roast probe into
water, or clean it in the dishwasher
as this would damage it.

Problem solving guide
Installation work, maintenance and
repairs may only be carried out by
suitably qualified and competent
persons in accordance with national
and local safety regulations.
Repairs and other work by
unqualified persons could be
dangerous and the manufacturer will
not be held liable.
Ensure current is not supplied to the
appliance until after maintenance or
repair work has been carried out.
Some minor problems can be corrected
without contacting the Miele Service
Department.
– if operating with a combination
programme, the following have been
entered: a power setting, a time for
the microwave mode and a
temperature for the conventional
oven operating mode.
. . . no operating noise is heard when
the appliance door is opened during
a cooking process in conventional
oven mode
This is not a fault.
If the door is opened during a cooking
process the door contact switch will
switch off the heating and depending
on the function chosen, the hot air fan.
What to do if . . . .
. . . a noise is heard after a process
has finished
. . . the display does not light up
This is not a fault.
^ Check whether
– the appliance is correctly plugged in
at the mains socket and switched on,
– the mains fuse has blown (call the
Service Department),
– the time of day display has been set
to switch off after 60 seconds (see
"Time of day - Display" in the Settings
menu).
. . . a programme will not start
^ Check whether
The cooling fan continues to run for a
short time depending on how hot the
oven interior is.
If the door is opened during this run-on
time the fan will be switched off. If the
door is then shut the fan will start again.
. . . the microwave / heating functions
but not the interior lighting
^ Check whether the oven interior
lighting has been switched off, (see
"Light" in the "Settings" menu).
– the appliance door is properly shut if
operating in microwave mode,
– if operating in microwave mode a
power setting and time have been
entered,
67
Problem solving guide
If it has not been switched off, the
halogen lamp is defective and needs to
be replaced:
Disconnect the appliance from the
electricity supply, (switch off and
unplug at the socket, or remove the
fuse, or switch off at the isolator as
appropriate).
^ Unscrew and remove the lamp cover.
^ Pull the halogen lamp out.
^ Fit a new halogen lamp.
Specification:
12 V, 10 W,
heat resistant to 300 °C,
fitting W271, Osram, Type 64418
^ Replace the cover and screw into
place.
^ Reconnect the appliance to the
mains supply.
. . . the food is not sufficiently heated
or is not cooked at the end of a set
time
^ Check whether
– after interrupting a cooking process
using microwave power that you
remembered to restart the
programme,
– if cooking / reheating in microwave
mode the correct duration was
selected for the setting chosen.
The lower the power level the longer
the duration.
68
. . . cakes or biscuits are not cooked
after a recommended time
^ Check whether
– the correct temperature was set.
– there were any alterations to the
recipe. The addition of more liquid or
more eggs makes a moister mix
which would take longer to cook.
. . . cakes or biscuits are unevenly
browned
There will always be a slight
unevenness.
^ If browning is very uneven, check
– whether the temperature was set too
high,
– the colour and material of the baking
tins being used. Bright shiny tins are
not very suitable. Try using a different
tin next time.
Problem solving guide
. . . food cools down too quickly after
being reheated or cooked in
microwave mode
When cooked by microwaves, food
begins to cook from the outside first,
the inside of the food relying on the
slower conduction of heat.
If food is cooked at a high power level it
is possible that the heat may not have
reached the centre of the food. Food
may be warm in the middle but cool on
the edge. When reheating food with
different densities, such as plated
meals, it is sensible to start with a low
power level and lengthen the time
required.
. . . strange noises are heard when
the microwave or microwave /
combination mode is being used.
. . . a fault message appears in the
display
Fault – 54 Roast probe short circuit
The roast probe is defective.
Remove the probe from its socket and
the message will disappear.
Fault – 55 Over-riding time
The oven has automatically switched
itself off during use. This is a safety
feature to protect the oven if it has been
operating for an exceedingly long
period. The length of time depends on
the oven function selected.
The oven will be ready for use again,
after it has been switched off and then
back on again. You will need to select
the cooking process again.
Any other fault messages:
If any other fault message appears in
the display, this will need a service visit.
^ Check whether
– sparks are being created by the use
of metallic crockery, (see "suitable
crockery").
– the food is covered with aluminium
foil. If so, remove it.
If it is not possible to remedy a fault
by following the instructions given
above, contact the Service
Department. On no account open
the appliance casing.
This appliance should only be
repaired by a suitably qualified
technician trained by Miele.
