The appliance is only intended for
use by adults who have read these
instructions.
This appliance is not a toy! To
avoid the risk of injury, keep
children well away and do not let them
play with it or use the controls. They will
not understand the potential dangers
posed by it. They should be supervised
whenever you are working in the
kitchen.
The appliance gets hot when in
use and remains hot for quite a
while after being switched off. To
safeguard against burning, keep
children well away from the appliance
at all times.
Warning: Take care in the area
around the hinges. Danger of
injury. Keep children well away.
Do not allow children to swing on
the open oven door.
10
Packaging (e.g. cling film,
polystyrene) and plastic wrappings
must be kept out of the reach of babies
and young children. Danger of
suffocation. Dispose of or recycle all
packaging safely as soon as possible.
Before discarding an old
appliance, switch off and
disconnect it from the power supply.
Cut off and render any plug useless.
Cut off the cable directly behind the
appliance to prevent misuse. This
should be done by a competent
person. See "Disposal of your old
appliance" for further details.
Warning and Safety instructions
Protecting the appliance from
damage
Do not use the appliance to heat
up food in sealed jars and tins.
Pressure will build up inside them, and
they can explode causing damage to
the appliance, as well as the risk of
injury and scalding.
Do not store cooked food in the
oven. The moisture in the food can
lead to corrosion in the appliance.
Do not use metallic containers or
utensils in the oven which are likely
to rust. This can cause corrosion.
Only use the descaling tablets
supplied or a proprietary citric acid
descaling agent to descale the
appliance (see "Optional accessories").
Follow the manufacturer's instructions
on the packaging. Do not use vinegar
or descaling agents containing vinegar,
as these can cause corrosion in the
appliance.
Do not use a steam cleaner to
clean this appliance. The steam
could reach electrical components and
cause a short circuit. Pressurised
steam could also cause permanent
damage to the surface and to other
components, for which the
manufacturer cannot accept liability.
The appliance is designed in such
a way that there will always be a
little residual water left in the water
container after use. If there is no
residual water, there is something
wrong. Call the Service Department.
Protection from burning
The appliance must be positioned
so that you can see the contents of
a cooking container placed on the top
runner. Otherwise you may risk scalding
or burning yourself with hot water and
food when taking containers out of the
oven.
The appliance, especially the
inside of the door and the area
around the ventilation outlet, becomes
extremely hot during use, and remains
hot for some time after switching off.
If the oven is still hot, steam will
escape when the door is opened.
Stand back away from the appliance
and wait until the steam has dissipated.
Take care when opening the door
not to spill any hot water that has
collected in the drip channel.
To protect your hands, use oven
gloves when using the appliance.
However, do not let them get damp or
wet, as this causes heat to transfer
through the material more quickly with
the risk of burning yourself.
When putting cooking containers
or the condensate tray into the
oven or taking them out, take care not
to spill the contents. Avoid contact with
hot steam, and do not touch the hot
oven interior walls. Danger of burning
and scalding.
Take care not to tip the water
container when taking it out of the
appliance. Hot water can scald.

micro-organisms which are only
destroyed by thorough cooking at a
sufficiently high temperature for long
enough. If in doubt select a longer
cooking or reheating time.
When the door is open be careful
not to hurt yourself on edges and
corners, and especially on the door
catches.
If using plastic cooking containers,
make sure that they are heat- and
steam-resistant to 100 °C. Otherwise
they may melt, distort or 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 caused by cockroaches or
other vermin will not be covered by the
guarantee.
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.
Packaging, e.g. cling film, polystyrene
and plastic wrappings, must be 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.

various types of food. Remember that
the cooking duration is not dependent
on the amount of food, but on the size
of the food. For example, large
potatoes will take longer to cook than
smaller potatoes.
To achieve good results using the
durations quoted, please do not cook
quantities of food for more than 6-8
servings. Cooking durations will also
vary depending on the cooking
container used (see "Suitable
containers").

Steam will escape when the door is
opened. Step back from the
appliance and wait until the steam
has dissipated.
When opening the appliance, take
great care that hot water which may
have collected in the drip channel in
the door does not overflow.
Also when taking the condensate
tray or cooking containers out of the
oven, take care not to spill the
contents. Do not come into contact
with hot steam and do not touch the
hot oven sides. Danger of burning
and scalding.
After use
^ Remove the condensate tray and
empty it.
^ Remove the water container and
empty it. Push the water container
upwards slightly when removing it
from the appliance.
^ After each use, clean and dry the
whole appliance as described in
"Cleaning and care".
^ Leave the door open until the
cooking compartment is completely
dry.
The appliance is designed in such a
way that there will always be a little
residual water left in the water
container after use. If there is no
residual water, there is something
wrong. Call the Service Department.
Insufficient water
Insufficient water is indicated in the
display by the flashing p symbol. An
audible tone will also sound during
operation.
^ Check the water level and add water
if necessary.
^ Push the water container into the

Practical tips
Suitable containers
Some stainless steel cooking
containers are supplied with the
appliance. Other containers, in a variety
of sizes, both perforated and solid, are
available as optional extras.
When choosing the most suitable
container for the particular food you are
cooking, please note:
– Use perforated cooking containers
whenever possible, e.g. for cooking
vegetables. The steam can reach the
food from all sides and the food is
cooked evenly.
– With large items of food, such as
whole potatoes, the steam can work
effectively because there are spaces
between the individual pieces into
which the steam can penetrate.This
way a large quantity will take the
same time to cook as a smaller
amount and large, deep containers
can be used. Where possible space
the food out to allow the steam more
room.
– More compact dishes such as
casseroles or bakes, or food such as
peas or asparagus spears, which
have little or no space between them
will take longer to cook because the
steam has less space to work in. The
fuller the container, the longer it will
take to cook. It is best to use 2 or 3
shallow containers rather than one
deep one for these types of foods,
and then fill them only 3-5 cm deep.
Cooking times quoted are calculated
on this principle. Deeper dishes will
take longer to cook.
– To ensure even results when cooking
with more than one container, do not
use more than one gastronorm size
GN 1/2 container.
– The steam oven is designed to cook
quantities of up to 6-8 portions. Be
careful not to exceed the amounts
quoted.
You will find various tips on how to use
the steam oven in the following sections
or in the cook book.
21
Practical tips
Heat-resistant glass, ceramic,
porcelain, plastic, stainless steel and
enamel dishes are all suitable.
Important:
– If using plastic cooking containers,
make sure that they are
heat-resistant to 100 °C and able to
withstand hot steam.
– Food will take considerably longer to
cook than the time quoted if the dish
has thick sides.
22
– Place the container on the rack
supplied.
– Ensure that there is a gap of at least
3 cm between the upper rim of the
container and the top of the cooking
compartment to allow sufficient
steam into the container.

Practical tips
Tips on steaming
– In general, the cooking durations for
cooking with steam are the same as
for cooking food in a saucepan.
– Steam prevents food from drying out
so it remains moist, and juices are
not lost. This applies to a wide variety
of food, including dumplings, steam
puddings, fish and meat dishes, as
well as vegetables.
– You can select any shelf level. You
can also cook on several levels at
the same time. This will not alter the
cooking duration.
– Food does not brown or get crisp
from over-cooking. It is gently
steamed, and not roasted or baked.
Cheese melts perfectly without
getting burnt. It is a healthy way of
cooking, and it brings out the distinct
flavour of the food.
– When cooking frozen food, e.g.
vegetables, ensure that any large
clumps frozen together are broken
up first so that they cook evenly. The
cooking duration is approximately
the same as for fresh vegetables.
– Frozen and fresh vegetables which
take the same length of time to cook
can be cooked together.
– Cooking with steam retains the true
taste of the food better than
conventional cooking. Therefore food
should not be seasoned until after it
has been cooked.
– Only fill solid containers 3/4 full with
liquid.
26
– Dried foods like pasta and rice must
be cooked in liquid. Pasta should be
well covered with liquid. With rice,
pulses etc. the proportion of food to
liquid should be 1:1.
– When cooking noodles, follow the
manufacturer's instructions on the
packaging regarding cooking
duration.
– Cooking liquids do not boil away.
They are either absorbed by the
food, as with rice and pasta, or they
remain in the dish to form a sauce,
as with casseroles. The sauce can
then be thickened or added to after
cooking.
– You can thicken sauces in the steam
oven by adding flour and butter to
liquid (40 g flour and 40 g butter to
0.5 litres liquid).
– Grease perforated containers
beforehand if using them to cook
fish, and solid containers if using to
cook dishes containing eggs.
– To avoid any transfer of tastes
caused by moisture dripping down
from above, solid containers should
be placed above perforated
containers.
– Yeast dough can be put in the oven
to rise. Cover the dough.

Practical tips
Frozen food can be defrosted in this
appliance in much less time than when
defrosting at room temperature.
Proceed as follows:
^ Place the food in a suitable container
or on the rack.
^ Select the temperature (see chart).
^ Select the defrost duration (see
chart).
Tips on defrosting
– All meat and poultry should be fully
defrosted before cooking. When
defrosting meat or poultry place the
condensate tray underneath the rack
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
defrosted poultry. Pour it away and
wash the tray, the sink and your
hands. Danger of salmonella
poisoning!
– Fish does not need to be fully
defrosted before cooking. Defrost so
that the surface is sufficiently thawed
to take herbs and seasoning.
– When defrosting food which has
frozen together, e.g. berries, chops,
fish fillets etc separate or break it up
about half-way through the defrosting
time.
– Allow food to stand at room
temperature at the end of defrosting.
This standing time (see chart) is
necessary to ensure that the food is
fully defrosted right through to the
core.
– Do not refreeze food once it has
thawed.
– Defrost frozen pre-cooked meals
according to the manufacturer's
instructions.
– Defrost baked goods in a sealed
freezer bag.
– Food which does not drip can be
placed on the rack or in a dish once
the wrapping has been removed.

^ Place the condensate tray on the
floor of the cooking compartment and
place the rack on top of the
condensate tray.
Practical tips
Cooking whole meals
It is very economical and practical to
cook a whole meal at the same time in
the steam oven.
Proceed as follows:
^ Place cooking containers on different
levels or place them side by side or
one on top of the other on the rack.
In general, cooking durations will vary
according to the type of food. This
means that you will need to open the
steam oven at different times to add a
particular dish. See example below:
Rice
Fish fillet
Broccoli
20 minutes
6 minutes
4 minutes
^ First place the dish with the longest
cooking time, i.e. the rice, in the
oven.
^ Select and confirm a temperature of
100 °C.
^ Calculate the initial cooking duration
by subtracting the cooking duration
for the fish from the duration for the
rice, i.e. 20 minutes less 6 minutes =
14 minutes.
^ After 14 minutes, place the fish in the
oven.
^ To calculate the next cooking
duration subtract the time for the
broccoli from the time for the fish:
6 - 4 = 2. Set a duration of 2 minutes
and confirm your selection.
^ After 2 minutes, place the third dish
(broccoli) in the oven.
^ Set the cooking duration for the
broccoli, 4 minutes and confirm your
selection.
At the end of the cooking duration you
can remove all three dishes at the same
time.
31
Practical tips
Blanching
Preparing yoghurt
You can use your steam oven to blanch
vegetables and fruit for freezing.
Proceed as follows:
Proceed as follows:
^ Put the prepared vegetables/fruit
(cleaned, washed, chopped etc.) into
a perforated cooking container.
^ Select and confirm a temperature of
100 °C.
^ Set and confirm a duration of 1
minute.
^ Once blanched, plunge the
vegetables/fruit into ice cold water to
cool them down quickly. Drain them
well.
The vegetables/fruit can now be frozen.
^ Mix 100 g yoghurt (with live culture)
with 1 litre of fresh milk. The yoghurt
and milk should have the same
percentage fat content.
If using unpasteurised milk you will
need to heat it up to 90 °C (do not
boil) and then leave it to cool.
Otherwise the yoghurt will not set.
^ Pour this milk mixture into 6 or 7
portion sized glass dishes and cover
with heat resistant cling film.
Special yoghurt jars may also be
used.
^ Place the covered dishes on the
rack.
^ Reduce the temperature to 40 °C and
confirm your selection.
^ Set a maximum duration of 4 hours
and 59 minutes.
^ Allow the yoghurt to cool and then
place in the refrigerator.
It will not achieve its maximum set until
it has been thoroughly chilled.
32
Practical tips
Disinfecting baby bottles
Proceed as follows:
The steam oven can be used to
disinfect baby bottles and other
containers. Check beforehand that all
parts, teats etc., are declared by the
manufacturer to be heat-resistant to
100 °C.
^ Place the condensate tray on the
floor of the cooking compartment and
place the rack on top of the
condensate tray.
^ Dismantle, clean and thoroughly
rinse the bottles and space the
individual parts out on the rack,
ensuring that they do not touch one
another. This allows the hot steam to
reach them from all sides.
^ Select and confirm a temperature of
100 °C.
^ Set and confirm a duration of at least
15 minutes.
^ Dry thoroughly using a fresh, clean
tea towel after disinfection. All parts
of the bottles must be completely dry
before they are reassembled to keep
them germ free.
33
Cleaning and care
General notes
Appliance front and housing
Clean the whole appliance and then dry
it thoroughly after each use. Allow the
appliance to cool down to a safe
temperature before cleaning.
The appliance front and controls and
the housing can be cleaned using a
Miele E-Cloth (see "Optional
accessories") or a mild solution of hot
water with a little washing up liquid,
applied with a damp cloth. Wipe the
surfaces dry using a soft cloth.
Make sure the appliance is completely
dry before closing the door.
Do not use a steam cleaner to clean
this appliance. The steam could
reach electrical components and
cause a short circuit. Pressurised
steam could also cause permanent
damage to the surface and to
components, for which the
manufacturer cannot accept liability.
Never use cleaners containing
alkalines, soda, acids or chlorides,
oven sprays, dishwasher detergents
or abrasive cleaning agents, hard
brushes, scouring pads and cloths
or steel wool. You should also avoid
using sponges etc. which have
previously been used with abrasive
cleaning agents, as these would
damage the surface.
Do not use commercial cleaning
agents. Only use agents designed
for domestic use.
Do not use cleaning agents or
washing up liquids containing
aliphatics as these could cause the
seals to swell.
34
For appliances with glass fronts, a
proprietary glass cleaning agent may
be used.
For stainless steel surfaces, we
recommend using a non-abrasive
proprietary cleaning agent for stainless
steel. To help prevent marks, you could
also use a conditioning agent for
stainless steel (see "Optional
accessories").
Follow the manufacturer's instructions
on the label, and apply sparingly with
an even pressure following the direction
of the grain.
Cleaning and care
Oven interior
Dry the oven interior, oven interior roof,
door seal, drip channel, inside of the
door and the compartment for the water
container after each use. Use a sponge
or absorbent cloth to wipe off the
condensate which has built up.
Condensate tray, rack and
cooking containers
The condensate tray, rack and cooking
containers should be washed and dried
each time they are used.
They are all dishwasher safe.
Remove grease deposits with a mild
solution of washing up liquid and warm
water and wipe with clean water.
Over time, the floor heater can become
discoloured by drops of liquid. This
discolouration is easy to remove with a
proprietary cleaner for ceramic
surfaces. Follow the manufacturer's
instructions. After cleaning, wipe the
surface with a damp cloth to remove
any cleaning agent residues.
The door seal can become porous and
brittle over time. If this is the case, it
should be replaced with a new seal.
Door seals can be ordered from the
Miele Spare Parts Department. See
back page for contact details.
35
Cleaning and care
Water container
Remove, empty and dry the water
container after each use. Also remove
the insert from the water container.
^ Release the insert by pushing the
catches on the sides in towards each
other and then pull it out of the
container.
^ After cleaning, dry both parts of the
insert thoroughly before replacing it
in the water container. When
replacing the insert (see illustration),
guide it in at an angle a and push it
downwards b.
b
a
Do not immerse the water container
in water or clean it in a dishwasher.
It is important to empty the water
container after each use for hygiene
reasons, and also to prevent
condensate building up in the
appliance.
Do not use scouring pads or hard
brushes.
36
Cleaning and care
Coupling seal
The coupling seal should be replaced
with a new one if it becomes brittle or
porous over time or if an unusually
large amount of water collects on the
floor of the water container
compartment.
Replacement seals can be ordered
from the Miele Spare Parts Department.
See back page for contact details.
The coupling seal needs to be
lubricated regularly. If the water
container becomes difficult to remove
and replace or the fault message F20
appears, rub a small amount of the
silicone grease supplied (see
"Accessories supplied") into the inside
of the coupling seal. When doing this,
do not detach the seal but leave it in
place.
Only use the silicone grease
supplied. On no account must
margarine or oil or any other
domestic grease or fat be used, as
these can cause the seal to swell.
When handling silicone grease, please
observe the following safety measures:
– Remove any silicone grease from
your skin either by wiping it off or by
washing it off.
– If the grease gets into the eyes it
must be rinsed out with plenty of
clean water.
– If it is swallowed, seek medical
advice.
37
Cleaning and care
Descaling
Use the descaling tablets supplied
or a proprietary citric acid descaling
agent to descale the appliance (see
"Optional accessories"). Follow the
manufacturer's instructions on the
packaging. Do not use vinegar or
descaling agents containing vinegar,
as these can cause corrosion in the
appliance.
The water container will need descaling
after a certain number of operating
hours. The display will alert you when
this needs done. After switching on, the
descaling symbol k and the number 10
will appear in the display.
An audible tone will sound and "0:22 h"
will appear in the display and the k
symbol will start flashing.
Proceed as follows:
^ Fill the water container with 1 litre of
descaling solution. To make the
solution, use cold water and
descaling tablets, as instructed on
the packet, or the appropriate
amount of citric acid based
household descaling agent.
^ Push the water container into the
appliance until it connects.
^ Press the function selector.
The number indicates that the
appliance can be used a further 10
times before it locks out. If the
appliance is not descaled immediately,
a 9 will appear in the display the next
time the appliance is switched on, and
so on until it has been used ten times.
The appliance will then lock and it must
be descaled before it can be used
again.
You can start the descaling programme
manually before the appliance locks
out, by pressing the function selector
for 4 seconds with the appliance
switched off.
38
Descaling will now begin. The colon will
flash and the k symbol will now light
up constantly in the display.
It is only possible to cancel the
descaling process during the first few

the water container with silicone
grease, as described in "Coupling
seal".
... the heating up phase lasts an
unusually long time.
Check the bottom of the water
container.
If a thick layer of limescale has built-up,
check the water hardness level that has
been set. Set the correct water
hardness level for your water supply
(see "Setting the water hardness level"),
and descale the appliance as
described in "Descaling".
If the water hardness level was in fact
set correctly or the problem occurs
again, contact the Service Department.

Electrical connection
All electrical work should be carried
out by a suitably qualified and
competent person, in strict
accordance with current local and
national safety regulations (BS 7671
in the UK).
Connection should be made via a
suitable isolator or a double pole fused
spur connection unit or fused plug and
switched socket which complies with
national and local safety regulations
and the on/off switch should be easily
accessible after the appliance has
been built in.
Installation, repairs and other work
by unqualified persons could be
dangerous. The manufacturer
cannot be held liable for
unauthorised work.
If the switch is not accessible after
installation (depending on country) an
additional means of disconnection must
be provided for all poles.
Ensure power is not supplied to the
appliance until after installation work
has been carried out.
The appliance must only be
operated when built-in. This is to
ensure that all electrical parts are
shielded. Live parts must not be
exposed.
For extra safety it is advisable to install
a residual current device (RCD), with a
trip current of 30 mA.
When switched off there must be an
all-pole contact gap of 3 mm in the
isolator switch (including switch, fuses
and relays).
Important U.K.

mains electricity supply via an
extension lead. These do not
guarantee the required safety of the
appliance.
Please ensure that the connection data
quoted on the data plate match the
household mains supply.
This appliance is supplied for
connection to a single phase 230-240 V
50 Hz supply with a 3-core cable.

national regulations. It is most important
that this basic safety requirement is
tested regularly and where there is any
doubt the household wiring should be
inspected by a qualified electrician.
The manufacturer cannot be held liable
for the consequences of an inadequate
earthing system such as electric shock.
Replacement fuses should be ASTA
approved to BS 1362 and have the
correct rating. Replacement fuses and
