Description of the appliance
Features
Oven controls
In addition to operating the various
cooking programmes to bake, roast
and grill, the electronic controls also
offer the following features:
– Clock display
– Minute minder
– Timer to automatically switch cooking
programmes off, or on and off
– Settings can be customised
Cooling system
As soon as the oven is switched on, a
cooling fan is automatically engaged.
The cooling fan mixes hot air from the
oven cavity with cool room air before
venting it out into the kitchen through
vents located between the appliance
door and the control panel.
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 on
the oven housing unit.
When the temperature in the oven has
fallen sufficiently, the cooling fan will
switch off automatically.
Pyrolytic self-cleaning programme
The oven interior can be kept clean by
using the Pyrolytic . cleaning
programme.
This programme heats the oven interior
up to 460 °C. Any residual soiling is
broken down and reduced to ash by
the high temperatures.
For safety reasons the door is locked at
the beginning of the pyrolytic
programme.
Depending on soiling levels you can
choose between two cleaning
programmes:
– PY I lasting approx. 2 hours
– PY 2 lasting approx. 2 hours 30
minutes
Once the set time has elapsed, the
heating elements will switch off
automatically.
For safety reasons the door will remain
locked until the temperature in the oven
cavity has dropped below 280 °C.
See "Cleaning and care" for more
information.

Description of the appliance
PerfectClean treated surfaces
Vented oven door
The following surfaces are all treated
with PerfectClean enamelling:
The oven door is made up of a total of
four panels. There is an opening at the
top and bottom of these.
– Runners
– Baking tray
– Grill pan
– Rack
PerfectClean enamelled surfaces have
very good anti-stick properties and are
much easier to keep clean than
conventional enamel, if cleaned
regularly.
See "Cleaning and care" for more
information.
Door contact switch
There is a door contact switch located
centrally underneath the control panel.
If the door is opened during operation,
the door contact switch causes the
oven heating to switch off.
This helps reduce the amount of heat
lost from the oven cavity, e.g. when
checking food.
6
During operation cool air is passed
through the oven door to keep the outer
panel cool and safe to touch.
If necessary the oven door can be
dismantled for cleaning. See "Cleaning
and Care".
Retractable controls
All controls are retractable at the "0"
position.
Press them to release or retract them.
Do not push them in from any other
position as this would break them.
Energy efficiency rating
according to EN 50304
These appliances are rated energy
efficiency class B in accordance with
EN 50304.
Tests were carried out using Fan plus.
Description of the appliance
Accessories
Roasting filter
The following accessories are supplied
with this oven.
The roasting filter must be fitted in front
of the fan when cooking anything fatty,
or where food is likely to splatter, e.g.
when open roasting or grilling meat.
These and other accessories are also
available to order from the Miele Spare
Parts Department or your Miele Dealer.
See "Extra accessories" further on in
this booklet for more details.
Baking tray, grill pan and rack
The baking tray, grill pan and rack are
fitted with non-tip safety notches which
prevent them being pulled right out
when they only need to be partially
pulled out.
The droplets of fat caught up in the
circulating air are deposited on the
roasting filter. This helps to keep the
oven and the area behind the interior
back panel cleaner.
Do not use the roasting filter when
baking. This would increase the
times needed for baking and give
uneven browning results.
When pushing the tray, pan and rack
back in, always ensure that the
safety notches are at the rear of the
oven (see illustration).
The tray, pan and rack can then only be
taken out of the oven by raising them
upwards and then pulling them out.

Description of the appliance
Anti-splash tray
Handle
(depending on model)
(depending on model)
The anti-splash tray should be placed
in the deep-sided grill pan when grilling
or roasting.
The juices from the food being cooked
collect under the anti-splash tray. This
prevents them from spitting and making
the oven dirty. The juices can then be
used for making gravy and sauces.
8
The handle makes it easier to take the
baking tray, grill pan and rack out of the
oven, or to put them into it.
The two prongs at the top go inside the
pan, rack or tray and the U-shaped
supports underneath.
Caring for the environment
Disposal of the packing
material
Disposal of your old appliance
or machine
The transport and protective packing
has been selected from materials which
are environmentally friendly for disposal
and can normally be recycled.
Electrical and electronic appliances /
machines 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 or machine. Please do
not therefore dispose of your old
machine or appliance with your
household waste.
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!
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.

regulations. It is most important that this
basic safety requirement is present and
regularly tested, and where there is any
doubt the household wiring system
should be inspected by a qualified
electrician.
The manufacturer cannot be held liable
for the consequences of an inadequate
earthing system (e.g. electric shock).
The appliance must be built in
before operation to ensure that no
electrical components are accessible.
Never open the casing of the
appliance.
Tampering with electrical connections
or components and mechanical parts is
highly dangerous to the user and can
cause operational faults.
Warning and Safety instructions
Installation, maintenance and
repair work may only be carried out
by a suitably qualified and competent
person in accordance with national and
local safety regulations.
Repairs and other work by unqualified
persons could be dangerous. The
manufacturer cannot be held liable for
unauthorised work.
During installation, maintenance
and repair work, the appliance
must be disconnected from the mains
electricity supply. The appliance is only
completely isolated from the electricity
supply when:
– the mains fuse is withdrawn,
– or the screw-out fuse is removed (in
countries where this is applicable),
– or it is switched off at the isolator.
Ensure that current is not supplied to
the appliance until after maintenance
or repair work has been carried out.
Do not connect the appliance to
the mains electricity supply by an

assessment of the installation has been
carried out by a suitably qualified
engineer.
Use
Caution, danger of burning.
High temperatures are produced by
the oven.
Great care should be taken to
ensure that small children do not
touch the appliance 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, handle vent and control
panel can become quite hot.
Children should not be left alone or
unattended in an area where an
oven is in use. They should never be
allowed to sit or stand on any part of
the oven or play with it.
Do not store items of interest to children
in cabinets above an oven. Children
climbing on to the oven to reach these
could be seriously injured.
Use oven gloves when placing
food in the oven, turning or
removing it and when adjusting oven
shelves etc. in a hot oven.
When working with "Conventional"
heating or when grilling, the element in
the roof of the oven and the roof liner
become very hot, and there is a danger
of being burnt.
The oven door gets much hotter
during pyrolytic operation than
during normal use.
Make sure children cannot touch the
oven whilst a pyrolytic programme is
running. Danger of burning.
11
Warning and Safety instructions
Remove all accessories as well as
the runners and any extra
accessories such as, for example, the
baking carriage, or telescopic runners
from the oven interior before starting
the pyrolytic cleaning process. The
high temperatures needed for pyrolysis
will damage the accessories and cause
irreparable damage to the baking
carriage and telescopic runners.
Do not use plastic containers.
These melt at high temperatures
and could damage the oven.
Do not heat up unopened tins or
jars of food in the oven. Pressure
can build up and they may explode,
resulting in injury or damage.
Do not push pots and pans around
on the oven floor, as this could
damage the surface.
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 15 kg.
Make sure that nothing gets
trapped between the door and the
oven.
Cover any food which is left in the
oven to be kept hot. Any moisture
in the food could lead to corrosion
damage in the oven. This also prevents
the food from drying out.
12
If you wish to complete a cooking
process using the residual heat in
the oven, do not switch the appliance
off.
Leave the function selector at the
position set and turn the temperature
selector to the lowest setting.
Do not switch the appliance off until the
food has been removed. 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:
– damage the housing unit / worktop.
– lead to corrosion in the oven.
Bake larger frozen products, such
as pizzas, on baking paper on the
rack itself or in the pizza pan (see
"Extra accessories").
Placing them on the baking tray or in
the grill pan can cause the metal to
distort, and this distortion will increase
with each subsequent use.
Frozen food such as oven chips or
croquette potatoes can, however, be
cooked on the baking tray or in the grill
pan.
Warning and Safety instructions
Never add water to food on a hot
baking tray or grill pan or directly
onto food in a hot oven. The steam
created could cause serious burns or
scalding and the sudden change in
temperature can damage the enamel.
Never line the floor of the oven with
aluminium foil when using
Conventional heat A or Gentle bake x.
Do not place a dish, tin, baking tray or
grill pan on the floor of the oven.
If using a grill pan made by a different
manufacturer, make sure that there is a
gap of at least 6 cm between the
bottom of the pan and the floor of the
oven.
If these instructions are not observed
the bottom heat will be blocked. This
can cause permanent damage to the
floor of the oven.
Protective aluminium foil panels are
available in retail outlets which are
supposed to protect the oven cavity
from soiling and reduce the need for
cleaning. If used, cooking and baking
times will increase considerably.
They can also cause damage to the
appliance (e.g. by blocking the heat).
General notes
Never leave the appliance
unattended when cooking with oil
or fats, as these are a fire hazard if
allowed to overheat.
Do not use the oven to heat up the
room. Due to the high temperatures
radiated, objects left near the oven
could catch fire.
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 temperature,
changes to the recipe and the shape
and size of cooking container. Some
foods may contain micro-organisms
which are only destroyed by thorough
cooking at temperatures over 70 °C for
a minimum of 10 minutes. Therefore
when cooking or reheating foods, e.g.
poultry, it is particularly important that
food is fully cooked through. 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 during
cooking.
13
Warning and Safety instructions
When using kitchen appliances
connected to sockets near the
oven, ensure that the cable cannot get
trapped in a hot oven door, which could
melt the cable insulation. Danger of
electric shock.
Never use a steam cleaner to clean
the appliance. The steam could
reach electrical components and cause
a short circuit.
If using alcohol in your recipes,
high temperatures can cause the
alcohol to vaporise and even to ignite
on the hot heating elements.
Alcohol should be burnt off before the
dish is placed in the oven to avoid this
danger.
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 appliance guarantee.
14
Disposal of your old appliance
Before throwing an old appliance
away it must first be made
unusable. Switch off and disconnect it
from the power supply, cut off the cable
directly behind the appliance and
render any plug useless. This should
be done by a competent person. If
connected to an isolator switch,
disconnection should be carried out by
an electrician to avoid the risk of
accidents.
The manufacturer cannot be held
liable for damage caused by
non-compliance with these Warning
and Safety instructions.
Safety feature
Door lock for pyrolytic mode
For safety reasons the door is
automatically locked at the beginning of
the pyrolytic programme.
At the end of the programme it will not
be unlocked until the temperature
inside the oven has dropped to below
280 °C.
If the Pyrolytic . cleaning programme
has been started by mistake or if the

nothing in it. New ovens have a
slight smell on first use and this will
dissipate the smells before you use it
to cook any food.
Heat the empty oven up for at least
an hour.
Please ensure that the kitchen is well
ventilated during this operation.
Close doors to other rooms to
prevent the smell spreading
throughout the house.
On models with a clock/timer, you can
set this procedure to finish
automatically, see the appropriate
section.
^ Wait until the oven has cooled down
to room temperature.
^ Then wipe out the oven cavity with a
solution of hot water and a mild
detergent and then dry it thoroughly
with a clean cloth.
Leave the oven door open until the
oven interior is completely dry.

Description of the oven systems
Fan plus Y
Conventional A
This system works by the circulation of
heated air.
With the conventional method of
heating, radiant heat is directed onto
the food from above and below. It is
useful where a fairly long cooking time
is required and a deep colour and good
rise are needed.
A fan situated on the back wall of the
oven sucks in the air, heats it over a
ring element and blows the heated air
through the carefully spaced openings
in the rear panel of the oven.
The oven does not usually need to be
pre-heated as the heated air reaches
the food straight away.
Exception: Pre-heating may be
necessary for foods which cook in less
than 20 minutes and for foods such as
puff pastry and yeast mixtures where
instant heat is required to make them
rise quickly.
When using Fan plus, you can bake
and roast on different levels at the same
time.
Lower temperatures can be used than
with Conventional heating, as the Fan
plus system circulates the heated air
throughout the oven.
Rapid heat-up Ä
With Rapid heat-up, the grill element,
bottom heating element and fan all
switch on at the same time so that the
oven reaches the required temperature
as quickly as possible. The temperature
indicator light will go out when the
pre-selected temperature has been
reached. The function selector must
then be turned to the function you wish
to use for cooking.
18
It is usually necessary to pre-heat the
oven when using this method.
Gentle bake x
With Gentle bake the grill and the
bottom heating elements will be
switched on.
It is suitable for soufflés and gratins
where a crispy finish is required.
Description of the oven systems
Grill n
Pyrolytic cleaning .
Pre-heat the grill for at least 5 minutes
with the oven door closed before
grilling.
In this mode the oven cleans itself.
The grill is ready for use when it glows
red a few minutes after being switched
on.
Grill with the oven door closed.
Fan grill N
Pre-heat the grill for at least 5 minutes
with the oven door closed before
grilling.
The hot air from the grill is distributed
over the food by the fan on the rear wall
of the oven. This enables a lower
temperature to be selected than for
conventional grilling.
The oven is heated up to approx.
460 °C and any residual soiling in the
oven interior is burnt off by the high
temperatures.
This oven offers two programme
durations for pyrolytic cleaning.
"Pyrolysis I" is suitable for normal levels
of soiling. "Pyrolysis II" is suitable for
heavy soililng.
After the cleaning process any pyrolytic
debris (e.g. ash) can be easily wiped
out.
Grill with the oven door closed.
19

Using the oven
Temperature selector
Using the oven
^ Place the food in the oven.
^ Turn the function selector to the
required function.
The oven interior light comes on.
^ Use the temperature selector to set
the required temperature.
The oven starts to heat up and the
cooling fan switches on.
The temperature can be freely selected
within the given range.
The temperature selector must only
be turned in a clockwise direction as
far as it will go and then back again.
Do not attempt to turn it the wrong
way, or all the way round, as this will
damage the selector.
The temperature indicator light y will
come on as soon as a temperature is
selected. It remains alight while the oven
is heating up.
When the pre-selected temperature is
reached, the heating element switches
itself off. When the temperature falls
below that selected, the heating
element switches on again
automatically.
^ Take the food out of the oven when it
is ready.
Turn the function selector and the
temperature selector back to the "0"
position.
The cooling fan will continue to run for a
while after the oven has been switched

light y goes out for the first time, set
the oven function you require for
continued cooking or baking, and
place the food in the oven.
Cooking ready-meals
Rapid heat-up Ä can be used on its
own for cooking ready-meals such as
pizzas, lasagne, garlic bread etc. See
"Cooking ready meals".
When using Rapid heat-up to cook
ready meals you do not need to change
to another function during cooking.
With Conventional A heating
– Pre-heat the oven where a fairly long
cooking time is required and a deep
colour and good rise are needed.
Do not use Rapid heat-up Ä to
pre-heat the oven when baking
delicate items such as pizzas,
biscuits and small cakes. Otherwise
they will get brown too quickly.

Baking
The following settings are
recommended for baking:
– Fan plus Y
– Conventional A
Bakeware
For the best baking results make sure
that you chose bakeware in a material
suitable for the particular heating
system.
Fan plus Y
Most types of heat-resistant tins or
dishes are suitable.
Conventional A
The following baking tins give an even,
brown result: Dark metal, aluminium or
enamel tins with a matt finish. Heat
resistant glass and ceramic dishes can
also be used.
Avoid bright, shiny metal tins. These
reflect heat, which means that the heat
does not penetrate to the food
effectively, resulting in uneven or poor
browning.
In some cases the cakes might not
cook properly. Place the tin or dish
directly on the non-tip rack in the oven.
Use one shelf position only.
Fan plus Y
Several shelf levels can be used at
the same time for baking. The
recommended positions are:
1 tray = 1st shelf level from
the bottom
2 trays = 1st and 3rd shelf level from
the bottom
3 trays = 1st, 2nd and, 4th shelf level
from the bottom
When baking moist biscuits, cakes
or bread, do not bake on more than
two levels.
Remember to remove the roasting
filter from in front of the opening on
the back wall. Otherwise baking
times will be longer and results
uneven.
With Fan plus Y, the baking
temperature required is lower than
with Conventional A. Refer to the
baking charts and cookery book
supplied with your oven.
31
Baking
Conventional A
Only use dark baking tins with a
matt finish.
Bright, shiny tins give an uneven or
pale result, and in some cases the
cakes might not cook properly.
Tips on baking
Refer to the baking chart and the
cookery book supplied with this
oven for suggestions of
temperatures, shelf levels and times.
Place tins centrally on the rack on shelf
level 1 or 2.
Older recipes and cookery books
New guidelines (German standard
DIN 44547 has been replaced by
European standard EN 60350) have led
to slight adjustments in oven
temperature settings.
The recipes in the cookery book
supplied with your oven include these
new adjusted temperatures for cooking
with Conventional heat.
However, if using an older recipe or
cookbook, set the oven temperature for
Conventional 10° C lower than that
recommended.
The cooking duration does not need to
be changed.
32
Place cakes in rectangular tins with
the longer side across the width of the
oven for optimum heat distribution and
even results.
When baking cakes with fresh fruit
toppings and tall sponge cakes place
the tin in the grill pan to catch any
spillages and keep the oven cleaner.
When baking anything with a high salt
content (such as pretzels), they must
be placed on baking parchment. High
concentrations of salt can damage
PerfectClean surfaces.
Baking
Frozen food
When baking frozen products such as
cakes, pizza and baguettes, use the
lowest temperature quoted on the
manufacturer’s packaging. Place such
items on baking parchment directly on
the rack or in the pizza pan (extra
accessory). Placing them on the baking
tray or in the grill pan can cause the
metal to distort. This distortion would
increase with subsequent use.
Frozen foods such as oven chips or
potato croquettes can be cooked on a
baking tray or in the grill pan. Place
these types of frozen foods on baking
parchment and select the lowest
temperature quoted on the
manufacturer’s packaging.
Handling and preparing food
correctly is essential for maintaining
good health.
Only bake cakes, pizza, chips etc
until they are golden brown. Do not
overcook them.
To achieve even results without
over-browning the food
– 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. In some cases food might
not cook properly.
– 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.
The cooling fan will continue for a while
after switching off the oven.
Always remove all accessories, trays
and racks which are not being used,
when using the oven to get the best
cleaning results and to keep
cleaning of the trays to the minimum.

Roasting
We recommend using Fan plus Y for
roasting.
Conventional A can also be used.
Fan plus Y:
When roasting on the rack or in an
open tin make sure the roasting filter
is fitted in front of the fan in the back
of the oven before starting.
Roasting containers
Any heat-proof containers can be used:
roasting pans with a lid, made from
earthenware, cast iron, ovenproof china
or glass, and roasting foil are all
suitable.
Miele also offer Gourmet oven dishes
with lids which are ideal for roasting
and cooking larger quantities of food.
Place the roasting pan on the rack into
a cold oven.
Exception:
Pre-heat at the temperature suggested
when roasting beef.
Shelf levels
Use shelf level 1 for roasting.
We recommend roasting in a covered
pot , as
– this ensures that sufficient stock
remains for making gravy.
– and the oven stays cleaner, too.
36
Exception:
With Conventional A use shelf level 2
for
- poultry up to 1 kg,
- roast beef,
- and fish.
Roasting
Temperature
Older recipes and cookery books
Please refer to the Roasting chart for
suggested temperatures.
New guidelines (German standard
DIN 44547 has been replaced by
European standard EN 60350) have led
to slight adjustments in oven
temperature settings.
Do not select a higher temperature than
that advised. The meat will become
brown, but will not be cooked properly.
With Fan plus Y, a temperature
setting of 40 °C lower than for
Conventional A is sufficient.
For cuts which weigh 3 kg or more,
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.
The recipes in the cookery book
supplied with your oven include these
new adjusted temperatures for cooking
with Conventional heat.
However, if using an older recipe or
cookbook, set the oven temperature for
Conventional 10° C lower than that
recommended.
The cooking duration does not need to
be changed.
For roasting directly on the rack,
select a temperature that is about 20 °C
lower than for roasting in a covered pot.
When roasting on the rack, place the
rack and anti-splash tray over the grill
pan.
37
Roasting
Calculating the roasting time
Pot roasting
The roasting time will depend on the
type of meat, the size and thickness of
the cut.
Season the meat and place in the pot.
Add some knobs of butter or margarine
or a little oil or cooking fat. Add about
1
/8 litre of water when roasting a large,
lean joint of meat (2-3 kg) or roasting
poultry with a high fat content.
The traditional British method is to allow
15 to 20 minutes per lb/454 grammes,
according to type of meat, plus approx.
20 minutes, adjusting the length of time
as roasting proceeds to obtain the
required result. Alternatively, multiply
the height of the joint by the time per
cm for the type of meat:
Roasting on the rack
Beef/venison . . . . . . . . . 15-18 mins/cm
Pork/lamb/veal . . . . . . . . 12-15 mins/cm
Sirloin . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 8-10 mins/cm
e.g. Beef 8 cm thick
8 x 15 minutes per cm = 120 mins
Tips on roasting
Browning only occurs towards the end
of roasting time. Remove the lid about
halfway through the roasting time if a
more intensive browning result is
required.
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 juices when the meat
is carved.
38
Place the anti-splash tray in the grill
pan and then place the rack on top.
Season the meat and place on the rack.
Roasting poultry
For a crisp finish, baste the poultry ten
minutes before the end of cooking time
with slightly salted water.
Frozen meat
Do not roast deep frozen meat. Meat
should be thoroughly defrosted
before roasting.

Temperature
Tips on grilling
For thin cuts of meat
(e. g. chops or steak). . . maximum (n)
It is best to grill food of a similar
thickness at the same time so that the
grilling time for each item does not vary
too greatly.
For grilling larger items,
(e. g. rolled meat, poultry) . . . . . 240 °C
See the grill chart for more information.
To grill thicker pieces of food more
gradually after an initial high
temperature, continue grilling at a lower
temperature setting to allow the food to
cook through to the centre.
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”).
Grilling times
– If there is some resistance the inside
will be pink (“medium”).
– Flat pieces of fish and meat usually
take about 6 – 8 minutes per side,
depending on their texture.
– If there is great resistance, it is
throughly cooked through (“well
done”).
– Thicker pieces take a little longer.
– With rolled meats allow approx.
10 minutes per cm diameter.

Defrosting
You can also use the oven for
defrosting.
To defrost select Fan plus Y with a
maximum temperature of 50 °C.
Do not refreeze food once it has
thawed.
For defrosting meat and delicate foods,
use the lowest possible temperature
(30 °C).
Please note:
– Where possible remove the
packaging and put the food to be
defrosted on a baking tray or into a
dish.
– All meat and poultry should be fully
defrosted before cooking. Do not use
the liquids from defrosting.
– When defrosting poultry, put it on the
rack over the grill pan to catch the
defrosted liquid so that the meat is
not lying in this liquid.
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. Danger of salmonella.
– Fish does not need to be fully
defrosted before cooking. Defrost so
that the surface is sufficiently soft to
take herbs and seasoning.
43
Cooking
We recommend using the following
oven settings:
– Fan plus Y
– Conventional A
Cooking containers made of ovenproof
glass and china, and earthenware are
all suitable. They should have
heat-resistant handles and knobs.
^ Put the rack in on shelf level 1 and

Tips
Cover dishes which are to be cooked
in their own juice and/or steam, e.g.
potatoes or vegetables, so that they do
not dry out. If you do not have a lid, use
aluminium foil or damp cooking
parchment.
Cook without a lid when a crusty finish
or topping is required, e.g. for meat or
au gratin dishes.
You can also stack one pot on top of
another. Invert the lid of the bottom pot
and place the top pot on it. Place any
dish which needs to be browned on
top.
Cooking
Cooking ready-meals
The Rapid heat-up Ä function can be
used on its own for cooking
ready-meals (see chart) such as pizza,
lasagne, garlic bread, etc.
^ Select Rapid heat-up Ä.
^ Select a temperature.
^ When the temperature indicator light
y goes out, place the dish in the
pre-heated oven.
You do not need to select another
function for cooking.
Observe recommended temperatures,
cooking times and position in the oven
given on the manufacturer’s packaging.
Only use one level of the oven when
cooking ready-meals using this
function. If more than one shelf level
is required, select Fan plus Y.
Cook frozen desserts and pizza on
baking paper on the rack rather than
on a baking tray or in the grill pan.
Cooking large frozen items on a
baking tray or in the grill pan can
cause the metal to distort. This
distortion would increase with each
subsequent use.
Frozen foods such as oven chips or
croquette potatoes can, however, be
cooked on the baking tray or in the
grill pan.

Cleaning and care
Appliance front and control
panel
Clean the door handle and the control
elements regularly, preferably after
each use. This will help to prevent
grease and other deposits adhering to
surfaces and becoming difficult to
remove.
^ All external surfaces and controls can
be cleaned using warm water with a
little washing-up liquid applied with a
soft sponge or cloth.
^ Wipe the surfaces dry using a soft
cloth.
E-Cloth
A microfibre "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.
To prevent the risk of scratches and
damage to the surface structure of
glass, stainless steel and aluminium
fronted appliances, pay particular
attention to the following cleaning
instructions.
Glass fronted appliances
The appliance front and controls are
susceptible to scratches and
abrasions.
Avoid:
– 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,
– oven sprays.
Aluminium 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.
Aluminium surfaces and controls
may suffer discolouration or damage
if soiling, acids or alkaline
substances are left on them for too
long.
Remove these straight away.
The appliance front and controls are
susceptible to scratches and
abrasions.
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,
– dishwasher detergent,
– oven sprays.
47
Cleaning and care
Stainless steel fronted
appliances
The appliance front and controls are
susceptible to scratches and abrasion.
Please observe the cleaning
instructions for
– stainless steel surfaces,
– stainless steel coloured controls.
Stainless steel surfaces
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. N.B. Do not use
stainless steel cleaning agents on the
controls.
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 proprietary
conditioning agent for stainless steel
can also be used.
Apply sparingly with an even pressure
following the direction of the grain.
48
Stainless steel coloured controls
The controls may suffer
discolouration or damage if soiling is
left on them for too long. Remove
soiling straight away.
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,
– oven sprays.
Cleaning and care
Accessories
Remove all accessories as well as
the runners and any extra
accessories such as, for example,
the baking carriage, or telescopic
runners from the oven interior before
starting the pyrolytic cleaning
process. The high temperatures
needed for pyrolysis will damage the
accessories and cause irreparable
damage to the baking carriage and
telescopic runners.
Baking tray, grill pan, anti-splash tray
(if fitted), racks and runners
The surfaces of these have been
treated with PerfectClean enamel.
Please refer to the section
"PerfectClean" for information on
cleaning and care.
Roasting filter
Clean in a solution of hot water and a
little washing-up liquid or in the
dishwasher.
If cleaned in the dishwasher, results are
better if the filter is placed horizontally
in the basket.
Some dishwasher detergents may
cause the surface of the metal filter to
discolour. This discolouration will not
affect the functioning of the filter in any
way.
The roasting filter, unlike other
accessories, can by pyrolytically
cleaned. Although, this may cause
permanent discolouration, it will not
affect the functioning of the filter in any
way.
49
Cleaning and care
PerfectClean
Before using for the first time remove
any stickers from PerfectClean
surfaces.
The enamelled surfaces of the baking
tray, grill pan, anti-splash tray (if fitted),
rack and side supports have been
treated with a special type of
enamelling called "PerfectClean".
This surface has very good anti-stick
properties which is much easier to keep
clean than conventional oven enamel, if
cleaned regularly.
Food can be taken off it more easily
and soiling from baking and roasting is
easier to remove.
The following notes on cleaning and
care should ensure that the anti-stick
and easy clean properties of
PerfectClean last for many years.
PerfectClean surfaces can be treated
as you would treat glass. If you are
unsure whether a particular cleaning
product is suitable for PerfectClean
consider whether you could clean a
window pane with the product without
damaging it.
Food can be sliced or cut up on the
PerfectClean surface in the same way
as on a baking tray with conventional
enamel.
Allow the oven and any accessories
to cool down before cleaning.
Danger of burning!
50
Normal soiling
Clean as soon as possible after each
use with a dishcloth, soft sponge (such
as the Vileda sponge supplied with
ovens in the UK) or a soft nylon brush,
and a solution of hot water and a little
washing-up liquid. The longer soiling is
left the harder it may become to
remove.
Stubborn soiling
Stubborn soiling e.g. from roasting may
need to be soaked first with a damp
sponge to loosen it and if necessary a
scraper suitable for glass surfaces can
be used to remove it.
After cleaning rinse thoroughly with
clean water. The water must run off the
surface easily. Any residual cleaning
agents will hinder this effect.
Using oven sprays on very stubborn
soiling
Some oven cleaners contain strong
alkalines and / or abrasive
materials. Because the enamel is
designed to be easily cleaned the use
of these cleaners is not recommended.
However if you still cannot get the
surface clean, an oven cleaner can be
used for a couple of minutes only.
Do not attempt to use on a hot oven or
accessories. Allow the PerfectClean
surfaces to cool down to room
temperature before applying oven
sprays!
Cleaning and care
Apply a spray oven cleaner to the
soiled areas. Leave to take effect for a
couple of minutes only!
If necessary use a soft sponge (e.g. a
Vileda sponge), soft nylon brush or a
scraper suitable for glass surfaces to
loosen the soiling.
Repeat the process if necessary.
After cleaning rinse thoroughly with
clean water and then dry thoroughly.
Important
For optimum performance of the
PerfectClean enamel it is important to
clean the oven and accessories after
each use.
The surfaces will become harder to
clean and the anti-stick properties
will deteriorate if soiling is not
removed after each use and allowed
to build-up. In extreme cases
cleaning may even become
impossible.
The following cause lasting damage
to the surface structure and reduce
the anti-stick effect and must not be
used on PerfectClean surfaces:
– abrasive cleaning agents
– wire wool or metal scourers
– pot scourers
– oven cleaning pads
– sponges and cloths which have
previously been used with
abrasive cleaning agents.
– oven spray must not be used in a
hot oven or left on for too long.
– items coated with PerfectClean
enamelling must not be cleaned
in a dishwasher.
Note
Soiling such as spilt juices and cake
mixtures are best removed whilst the
oven or tray is still warm. Exercise
caution, make sure the oven is not hot danger of burning!
Spilt fruit juices may cause lasting
discolouration of the surfaces and
roasting can cause matt areas to
appear. Clean these following the
instructions given above and do not try
and use force to remove them! This
discolouration is permanent but will not
affect the efficiency of the enamel.
When baking items with a high salt
content (e.g. continental pretzels) place
them on baking parchment in the
baking tray or grill pan. Sodium
deposits can cause lasting
discolouration to PerfectClean
surfaces.

Cleaning and care
Oven interior
Pyrolytic cleaning of the oven interior
The oven interior and roof liner are
coated with dark pyrolytic enamel
which facilitates cleaning.
Before starting a pyrolytic cleaning
process please note the following
advice:
This is a particularly hard enamel with
an extremely smooth surface.
Because of its anti-stick properties
most debris can be easily removed with
warm water and a little washing-up
liquid applied with a soft cloth. This
should be done after each use.
Never use hard brushes, hard
sponges, wire wool pads, knives or
any other abrasive materials or
cleaning agents. They can damage
the enamel.
If using an oven spray, the
manufacturer’s instructions must be
followed.
Remove any coarse soiling from the
oven before you start.
There is a fibre-glass door seal
around the oven cavity.
This seal is particularly sensitive and
should not be cleaned unless
absolutely necessary. Rubbing the
seal can damage it.
Remove all accessories as well as
the runners and any extra
accessories such as, for example,
the baking carriage, or telescopic
runners from the oven interior before
starting the pyrolytic cleaning
process. The high temperatures
needed for pyrolysis will damage the
accessories and cause irreparable
damage to the baking carriage and
telescopic runners.
The oven door gets much hotter
during pyrolytic operation than
during normal use.
Make sure children cannot touch the
oven whilst a pyrolytic programme is
running. Danger of burning.
52
Cleaning and care
During the pyrolytic process the oven is
heated to approx. 460 °C . Any residual
soiling is burnt off by the high
temperatures.
The oven door is automatically locked
shortly after the pyrolytic cleaning
process starts.
Depending on soiling levels you can
choose between two cleaning
programmes:
– PY I lasting approx. 2 hours
– PY 2 lasting approx. 2 hours 30
minutes
For safety reasons the door will remain
locked until the temperature in the oven
cavity has dropped below 280 °C.
Starting a pyrolytic process
^ Take all accessories out of the oven.
^ Turn the function selector to the
pyrolytic . programme position.
^ Use the P or O button to scroll
between PY I and "PY 2.
^ After selecting PY I or PY 2 press the
Q timer button to start the pyrolytic
cleaning process.
The appliance door will lock and the
heating elements will begin to heat up.
The duration of the cleaning
programme can be seen in the display
by calling up the g symbol.
You can set a finish time for the
pyrolytic process during the first five
minutes after starting the programme,
for example, to take advantage of
cheaper night electricity tarifs. To do
this:
^ Call up the ) symbol and use the
P button to change the end time.
You can change the end time again if
you wish at any time up until the
programme starts.
At the end of pyrolytic cleaning
process
– the ) symbol will start flashing.
h
PY will appear in the diplay.
The digits in the display and the h
(Start) symbol will start flashing.
– a buzzer will sound, if it is switched
on (see "Altering oven settings").
^ Turn the function selector to "0".
The buzzer will stop and the symbols in
the display will go out.
If the function selector is not moved, the
buzzer (if switched on) will sound every
five minutes as a reminder that the
programme has finished.
This reminder continues for up to
30 minutes.
53
Cleaning and care
After the pyrolytic process any debris
(e.g, ash), can easily be wiped away.
Remember to wait until the oven has
cooled down before doing so!
Danger of burning!
Try not to wipe over the fibre-glass
seal when cleaning the oven cavity.
It is particularly sensitive and should
not be cleaned unless absolutely
necessary. Rubbing it can damage
it.
Most residues are easily wiped away
with a damp cloth.
Depending on soiling levels in the oven
there may be visible deposits on the
door and below the trim under the oven
cavity. This is best removed using a
non-abrasive sponge or non-abrasive
spiral pad and a mild solution of warm
water and washing-up liquid.
Deposits on the internal door panel can
be removed using a suitable glass
scraper.
Spilt fruit juices may cause lasting
discolouration to the surfaces. This
discolouration is permanent but will
not affect the efficiency of the
enamel. Do not attempt to remove
these marks.
54
The pyrolytic process will be
interrupted,
– if the function selector is turned to
"0".
– if another function is selected during
the pyrolytic process.
"PY" will start flashing and ) will
show in the display.
– in the event of a power cut.
"PY" will start flashing and ) wil
show in the display.
In both instances turn the function
selector to "0".
If the oven interior temperature is below
280 °C, the door lock will be released
after a short while. It can then be
opened.
Start the pyrolytic cleaning process
again if necessary.
Cleaning and care
To remove the oven door
Please note: the oven door is heavy
and should be gripped firmly at both
sides when being removed or
refitted.
The oven door is connected to the oven
by hinges.
^ Then lift the door upwards as far as it
will go.
Do not attempt to take the door off
the hinge guides when it is in a
horizontal position. The guides will
close, and damage the appliance.
Danger of injury.
Before removing the door, the locking
clamps on both hinges have to be
released.
^ Open the door fully.
^ Hold the door securely at both sides
and lift upwards off the hinge guides.
Do not lift the door off by the handle.
The handle could break and
damage the glass.
^ To release the locking clamps on the
hinges turn them upwards as far as
they will go until they are at an angle.
See illustration.
Make sure that you lift the door off
equally on both sides.
55
Cleaning and care
To dismantle the oven door
In the rare event that condensate has
worked its way in between the glass
panes, the door can be dismantled in
order to clean in between the panes.
Do not use scouring agents,
abrasive sponges or brushes to
clean the glass panes.
These could damage the surface.
Do not use an oven spray. This
would damage the surface of the
aluminium surrounds.
^ Always remove the oven door before
dismantling it.
^ Place the door on a protective
surface (e.g. on a towel) to protect it
from breakage and to prevent it
getting scratched.
The door handle should line up with
the edge of the table. Make sure the
glass lies flat to protect it from
damage during cleaning.
^ Push the spacers towards the centre
of the door and then pull them off.
If they are difficult to remove lift the
middle panel up a little. The spacers
should then be easier to move.
The oven door is made up of a total of
four panels.
Spacers are located next to the hinge
guides which keep the individual door
panels in position.
^ Carefully lift the inner pane up and
out.
56
Cleaning and care
^ Then carefully lift the middle panes
up and out.
^ The individual panes can then be
cleaned.
Handle them very carefully to avoid
the risk of breakage.
^ Replace the first of the middle panes.
Make sure the cut-off corner is
positioned at the top right hand
side.
When putting the door back together
again replace the middle panes first.
These panes are identical and both
have a corner missing.
When replacing the first pane this
corner should be on the right hand
side, and when replacing the second
pane it should be on the left.
^ Replace the second of the middle
panes. Make sure the cut-off corner
is positioned at the top left hand
side.
57
Cleaning and care
^ Finally replace the black printed inner
pane. The print should face in
towards the middle pane.
^ Lift the upper of the two middle
panes up a little and refit the spacers
to the panes. Then re-position them
back next to the hinge guides.
Before putting the door back on to
the oven make sure that the inner
pane is sitting correctly in its
retainers and that it cannot come
loose and get damaged by mistake.
58
Cleaning and care
To refit the door
^ Open the door fully.
^ Flip both locking clamps back up to
lock them. Turn them as far as they
will go into a horizontal position.
Make sure that the notches on the
locking clamps hook into the slots on
the door as illustrated.
^ Hold the door securely at both sides
and carefully fit it back onto the hinge
guides.
Make sure that the door goes back
on straight.
It is essential that the locking clamps
lock securely when the door is
re-fitted after cleaning. Otherwise
the door could work loose from the
hinges, resulting in damage to the
door.

Problem solving guide
. . . a noise can be heard after baking,
roasting or grilling
. . . cakes or biscuits are unevenly
browned
This is not a fault.
The cooling fan continues 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 on
the oven housing unit. When the
temperature has fallen sufficiently, the
fan switches off automatically.
It will switch off sooner if the oven door
is opened partially or fully.
There will always be a slight
unevenness. Product information
sheets give a percentage result for
standard browning tests. These refer to
results for one tray.
. . . cakes and biscuits are not cooked
properly after following the times
given in the chart
If browning is very uneven, check
when baking with Fan plus Y:
– whether the temperature was set too
high,
– whether the roasting filter was in
place,
Check whether,
– whether the correct shelf level was
used.
^ the correct temperature was set.
when baking with Conventional A:
^ there has been a change to the
recipe. The addition of more liquid or
more eggs makes a moister mix
which would need longer to cook.
– the colour and composition of the
baking tins being used. Light
coloured, shiny, or thin walled tins
are less suitable,
^ the roasting filter was left in front of
the fan when baking with Fan
plus Y. If this was the case, baking
times might need to be lengthened
by approx. 10 to 15 minutes.
– whether the correct shelf level was
used.
