Warning and Safety instructions
Installation and connection
The appliance may be connected
via a plug and fused socket. However, if the appliance is to be connected
to an isolator switch this must be done
by a suitably qualified and competent
person in accordance with local and
national safety regulations. The manufacturer cannot be held liable for the
consequences of incorrect installation
or connection.
The electrical safety of this appliance can only be guaranteed when
continuity is complete between the appliance and an effective earthing system which complies with local and national safety regulations.
It is imperative that this basic safety requirement is tested and where there is
any doubt, the electrical system of the
house should be tested by a qualified
electrician.
The manufacturer cannot be held liable
for the consequences of an inadequate
earthing system (e.g. electric shock).
This equipment is not designed for
maritime use or for use in mobile
installations such as caravans, aircraft
etc. However it may be suitable for
such usage subject to a risk assessment of the installation being carried
out by a suitably qualified engineer.
Do not install the appliance too
high. It should be at a suitable
height for all users to be able to safely
access all cooking levels and containers. Otherwise any spillages could
cause burns or scalding.
Do not connect the appliance to
the mains electrical supply by an
extension lead. Extension leads do not
guarantee the required safety of the appliance.
9
Warning and Safety instructions
Correct usage
Before using the appliance for the
first time, read the operating instructions carefully. They contain important notes on the safety, the operation
and care of the appliance. This way you
will avoid the risk of accidents and damage to the appliance.
Do not let children access the appliance or its controls. Supervise its
use by the elderly or infirm.
For safety reasons this appliance
must only be operated as a built-in
appliance. This is necessary to ensure
that all electrical components are shielded.
This appliance is intended exclusively for domestic use. It should not
be used for commercial purposes.
10
Only use the appliance to prepare
food in the home. Any other usage
is at the owner’s own risk and could be
dangerous. The manufacturer cannot
be held responsible for damage caused by improper use of the appliance.
Wipe out the oven interior with an
absorbent cloth after each use. Remember to wipe down the ventilation
outlet and the drip channel.
Leave the door open until the moisture in the oven interior has dissipated.
Warning and Safety instructions
Protection from damage
Do not heat up unopened tins of
food in the oven as pressure will
build up in the tin and it will explode damaging the oven interior. There is also a
danger of personal injury and scalding.
Do not leave cooked foods standing for an unnecessary length of
time in the oven. This is to prevent condensation building up which could cause corrosion to the appliance.
When descaling the oven only use
descaling agents with a citric acid
base. Do not use vinegar or agents
containing vinegar as this is corrosive
and would damage the appliance.
Follow the manufacturer’s safety
instructions on the packaging.
Protection from burning
and injury
When in use, the appliance, particularly the inner side of the door as
well as the outer side of the appliance
in the region of the ventilation outlet,
becomes very hot and remains so for a
while after the oven has been switched
off. Keep children away.
Wear oven gloves when working
with a hot appliance.
When handling cooking containers
take care not to let the contents
spill over. Ensure that you do not come
into contact with hot steam. There is a
danger of scalding.
Although this is a "steam oven", under no circumstances should a
"steam cleaning appliance" be used to
clean it. The steam from the cleaning
appliance could penetrate to live components and cause lasting damage to
components and the surface for which
the manufacturer can accept no responsibility.
Do not lean or sit on the open door
of the appliance, or place heavy
items on it and prevent children from
doing so. The door can support a maximum weight of 8 kg.
11
Warning and Safety instructions
With a damaged appliance
In the event of damage or a defect,
switch off the appliance immediately. Disconnect completely from the
electricity supply. Contact the Service
department.
The appliance is only completely isolated from the electricity supply when:
- it is switched off at the wall socket and
the plug removed (pull on the plug, not
the cable), or the mains fuse is withdrawn, or the screw-out fuse is removed in countries where this is applicable.
Ensure that current is not supplied to
the appliance while maintenance or repair work is being carried out.
12
Repairs may only be carried out by
a suitably qualified and competent
person to ensure safety. Repairs by unauthorised personnel could be dangerous. Tampering with electrical connections or components and mechanical
parts is highly dangerous to the user
and can cause operational faults. On
no account open the outer casing of the
appliance.
While the appliance is under guarantee repairs should only be undertaken by a service engineer authorised by the manufacturer. Otherwise the
guarantee is invalidated.
Warning and Safety instructions
General notes
When using an electric socket near
the steam oven, care should be taken that the cable of the electrical appliance does not come into contact with
the steam oven door. The insulation on
the cable could become damaged, giving rise to an electric shock hazard.
The door hinges of the appliance
could present a hazard. Ensure
that children are kept at a safe distance.
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. 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.
Do not use plastic containers. They
may melt at high temperatures. The
oven could then be damaged.
When descaling using a proprietary descaling agent make sure that
you follow the manufacturer’s instructions on the packaging.
Keep children away from the appliance at all times.
In countries 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 might be caused by
cockroaches or other vermin will not be
covered by the appliance guarantee.
Before discarding an old appliance, disconnect it from the electricity supply and remove all electrical connecting cables. This should be done by
a competent person. Ensure that the
appliance presents no danger to children while being stored for disposal.
13
Caring for the environment
Disposal of 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!
Rather than just throwing these materials away, please ensure that they are
recycled.
Disposal of your old appliance
Old appliances contain materials which
can be reclaimed or recycled. Please
contact your dealer, your local waste
collection centre or scrap merchant
about potential recycling schemes.
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.
Ensure that the appliance presents
no danger to children while being
stored for disposal.
14
Before using for the first time
Do not be worried if your appliance makes some unusual noises. They occur
when the steam generating unit is
being filled or emptied out and when
pumping is taking place.
When the appliance is switched on the
fan which extracts steam from the oven
can also be heard. The fan will continue
running for a while after the oven has
been switched off.
Please stick the data plate supplied
with the appliance documentation into
the space provided at the end of this
operating instruction booklet.
Keep these instructions in safe place
for reference, and pass them on to any
future user.
15

Use
Setting the cooking time
After the recommended temperature,
three zeros and the symbol for cooking
time g will appear in the display.
The light bar between the - and + comes on.
The light bar between the Stop and
Start buttons will appear as soon as a
cooking time has been set.
The cooking time can be altered at any
time as long as it is showing in the display, i.e. before the beginning of cooking as well as during a function. If the
display has already changed, you can
switch back to view the cooking time
you wish to alter by pressing the z/g
button twice.
The charts later in these operating instructions and the cookery book give
suggested cooking times for various types of food.

After the steam oven has begun to
operate you will hear a pumping noise
as water is pumped from the water container into the steam generating unit.
The appliance will then heat up. During
this heating up time the rise in temperature in the oven interior shows in the
display.
As soon as the set temperature has
been reached, the display will change
to show the cooking time set and the
time will begin to count down. This is indicated by the colon flashing between
the figures.
Please note that the total time, i.e. the
time between the beginning and end of
a function, is made up of the heating up
time and the set cooking time added together. The heating up time and therefore also the total time will depend on
the quantity of food to be cooked. The
larger the quantity, the longer the heating up time.
Please also note that if the cooking temperature selected is 85 °C or higher
and the cooking time is longer than 30
minutes, then the steam generating unit
will switch off 3 minutes before the end
of cooking time to make use of residual
energy. This is indicated by the letters
EC in the display.

Practical tips
Suitable containers
Some stainless steel cooking containers are supplied with the appliance.
Other containers, are available in a variety of sizes, both perforated and solid,
as optional accessories. 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.
– If using a perforated container to
cook fish in its skin, grease the container beforehand.
– Place the drip tray supplied on the
lowest runner level to collect any
condensed water. Always use the
drip tray underneath a perforated
cooking container.
– 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
flatter containers rather than one
deep one for this type of food and
then only fill them between 3 and 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.
33
Practical tips
You can also use your own containers
and dishes. However, please note the
following:
– The container must be heat resistant
to 100° C. Heat resistant glass or ceramic glass, porcelain (chinaware),
stainless steel and enamel dishes
are all suitable.
– Food will take considerably longer to
cook than the time quoted if the dish
has thick sides.
34
– 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 oven interior to allow sufficient steam into
the container.

Practical tips
Advantages of cooking with
steam
– 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.
– Food does not brown or get crisp
from over-cooking and cheese melts
perfectly.
Tips on steaming
– 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 time is approximately the
same as for fresh vegetables.
– 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.
– 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.
38
– You can select any runner level. You
can also cook on several levels at
the same time. This will not alter the
cooking time.
– Fish should be cooked at 75 °C to
maintain its texture and natural colour.
At this temperature you should cook
on only one level.
Fish can be cooked on more than
one level at 90 °C. Please note that
at this temperature the cooking time
will be reduced by several minutes.
– To avoid any transfer of tastes caused by moisture dripping down from
above, solid containers should be
placed above any perforated containers. (See the section on cooking
whole meals).
Reheating
Your steamer is very effective at reheating dishes which have been prepared
previously.
Procedure:
^ Place the food on a flat plate and cover it with a deeper plate or some
heat-resistant foil.
^ Select the REHEAT P function.
^ Select a cooking time of between 5-8
minutes, depending on the type of
food.
^ Press Start.

Defrosting
Deep frozen food can be defrosted in
the steam oven in considerably shorter
times than when defrosting at room
temperature. Do not use the steam
oven to defrost baked items such as
pastry or cakes.
Procedure:
^ Select the DEFROST N function.
^ If necessary alter the temperature
(see chart).
^ Select the defrost time (see chart).
^ Press Start.
Tips on defrosting
– The time needed for defrosting depends on the type and weight of the
food, and at what temperature it was
deep frozen.
– Fish does not need to be fully defrosted before cooking. Defrost so that
the surface is sufficiently defrosted to
take herbs and seasoning.
Fish which is to be given a coating of
breadcrumbs should be fully defrosted so that the coating sticks to the
flesh.
– Turn, stir or separate food about
half-way through the defrosting time.
– Allow food to stand at room temperature at the end of the defrosting time.
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 deep frozen pre-cooked meals according to the manufacturer’s
instructions.
– Use the rack with the drip tray underneath it to defrost food which will
drip. This way the frozen food will not
be lying in defrosted liquid.
It is particularly important to observe
food hygiene rules when defrosting
poultry. Do not use the liquid from
defrosted poultry. Pour it away and
wash the tray, the sink and your
hands. Danger of salmonella!
– Food which will not drip can be placed on the rack or in a dish once the
wrapping has been removed.
41
Bottling
Bottling should only be undertaken
by an experienced cook who has received proper training in this method
of preserving fruit and vegetables,
and understands the implications of
the chemical reactions involved.
Important
When bottling in the steam oven a
maximum temperature of 98°C must
not be exceeded.
For detailed information on bottling it is
important to read the instructions given
in the cookery book supplied with this
oven.
For bottling select the COOK Universal
Q function.

The specified bottling time consists of 2
phases: a fixed time of 30 minutes for
one-litre jars (basic for all foods) plus
the actual cooking time which varies
according to the food being bottled.
The fixed time of 30 minutes will alter if
different sized jars are used.
Procedure:
^ Insert the drip tray at level 1 and place the rack above it.
^ Put the prepared jars (all the same
size) on the rack, ensuring that they
do not touch one another.
This allows the hot steam to surround
the jars on all sides.
We recommend that you place two jars
behind and two in front (see illustration).

It is very economical and practical to cook a whole meal at the same time in the
steam oven.
A few examples are given in the above chart. Consult the cookery book for more
information.
43
Meal planning
Procedure:
^ Place cooking containers on different
levels or place them side by side or
one on top of the other on the rack.
^ Insert the drip tray at the lowest level.
^ First place the dish with the longest
cooking time, e.g. the stuffed peppers, in the oven.
^ To calculate the cooking time subtract the shorter cooking time from
the longer time, i.e. 40 minutes - 10
minutes = 30 minutes in the example
given above.
^ Set this time and press Start.
The cooking process stops automatically after 30 minutes.
In general, the cooking times 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. Calculate cooking times as
follows:
Stuffed peppers
with
Boiled potatoes
40 minutes
10 minutes
(see menu suggestion 3 in the chart).
44
^ When this happens the second dish,
e.g. the potatoes in this example,
should be placed in the oven.
^ Set the cooking time for the second
dish, e.g. 10 minutes.
^ Press Start again.
At the end of cooking time an audible
tone will sound and you can then remove both dishes at the same time.
Blanching
Blanching with steam
Disinfecting baby bottles
You can use your steam oven to blanch
vegetables to prepare them for freezing.
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.
Blanching (short heat treatment) is usually necessary so that the enzymes
which are contained in the vegetables
are made inactive. Active enzymes
cause changes in colour and also break down substances, for example vitamin C.
As a rule, fruit can be frozen raw.
Only a few varieties which go brown easily (apples, pears) should be blanched
first.
Procedure:
^ Put the prepared vegetables (cleaned, washed, chopped etc.) into a
perforated cooking container.
^ Place the container on the rack in the
oven and insert the drip tray at the lowest runner level.
^ Blanch using COOK Universal Q
at a temperature of 90 °C.
Procedure:
^ Place the drip tray on the first runner
level and place the rack above it.
^ 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 COOK Universal Q. The recommended temperature of 100 °C is
suitable for disinfection.
^ Set a time of at least 30 minutes.
^ Allow to dry naturally and use as
soon as possible after disinfection.
All parts of the bottles must be completely dry before they are reassembled to keep them germ free.

Cleaning and care
General notes:
Never use cleaning agents containing alkalines / soda, acids or chlorides, oven cleaning sprays or dishwasher detergent or abrasive cleaning agents, e.g. hard brushes,
scouring pads or steel wool. You
should also not use sponges etc.
which have previously been used
with abrasive cleaning agents. These would damage the surface material.
46
Under no circumstances use a steam cleaning appliance to clean this
appliance . Pressurised steam could
cause permanent damage to the
surface and to components, for
which the manufacturer cannot accept responsibility.
Cleaning and care
Appliance front
The appliance front and controls should
be cleaned using a mild solution of hot
water with a little washing up liquid, applied with a damp cloth. Wipe dry using
a soft cloth.
Drip tray, rack and cooking
containers
The drip tray, rack and cooking containers should be washed and dried each
time they are used.
They are all dishwasher safe.
Appliances with aluminium fronts (see
dataplate) and/or with metal coloured
lacquered controls:
Parts of the appliance front made from
aluminium and the metal coloured lacquered controls are susceptible to damage from scratches and abrasion as
well as from alkaline and acidic substances. It is therefore essential to
clean these with care as described
above. Do not use cleaning agents for
stainless steel or descaling agents on
these surfaces. Soiling should be wiped
off as soon as possible after using the
appliance. If the soiling is left for a long
time it can have a damaging effect on
the surfaces.
Stainless steel fronts:
Use a non-abrasive proprietary cleaning and conditioning agent for stainless steel surfaces. Apply with an even
pressure following the direction of the
"grain".
E-Cloth
A microfibre "E-Cloth" is available from
the Miele UK Spare Parts Department,
Part Number 98013530, which is suitable for cleaning surfaces such as
stainless steel, glass, plastic and chrome.
