Automatic programmes
Your oven has a wide range of
Automatic programmes to enable you
to achieve excellent results with ease.
Each programme contains information
such as cooking function, temperature
and duration.
All you have to do is select the
Automatic programme and then the
degree of doneness required. For
instance under Beef you can select
"Sirloin joint" and then input whether you
want it "well-done", "medium" or "rare",
or under Baked goods you can select
whether you want your cake to be have
a "Normal" or "Darker" finish.
Sample recipes for different
Automatic programmes are given at
the end of this booklet.
To use an Automatic
programme
^ Select "Automatic".
^ Select the relevant sub-menu for the
type of food you want to cook (e.g.
Cakes).
A list of different cake options will
appear in the display.
^ Select the relevant sub-menu for the
dish you want to cook (e.g. Apple
tart).
^ Next you need to enter your specific
cooking requirements, following the
instructions in the display.
The degree of doneness, browning
level etc. are shown by a seven
segment bar. The middle setting is
displayed by a filled-out segment in the
middle of the bar.
NH H H TTTTT H H HN
To change the setting, move the filledout segment to the left or right.
You can delay the start by selecting the
"Start later" option.
Entries made are shown in the display.
To finish an Automatic programme early
you have to switch the oven off.
If by the end of an Automatic
programme the food is not cooked
enough, you can increase the cooking
duration. To do so select the option
"continue cooking", "continue baking" or
"continue warming".

Automatic programmes
Notes on using these programmes
– When using the Automatic
programmes the recipes provided
are designed as a guide only.
You can use the Automatic
programmes for other similar
recipes, including those using
different quantities.
– The oven interior should be at room
temperature before starting an Automatic programme.
– The duration given at the beginning
of an Automatic programme is
approximate. Depending on the
programme, it can be a little shorter
or longer. When the food probe is
being used, the cooking duration
depends on how long it takes for the
core temperature to be reached. The
cooking time can also vary
depending on the temperature of the
meat before cooking.
– Some programmes require a preheating phase before food is placed
in the oven. A prompt will appear to
tell you when to add the food.
– The "Reheat" Automatic programme
is for reheating plated meals. Follow
the instructions in the display.
– For frozen food follow the instructions
in the display.
– Automatic programmes can also be
saved as "User Programmes" and be
saved into the Main menu. The "Save
as" option will appear in the display
at the end of the programme.
– Some programmes require the
addition of liquid or vegetables
during cooking. You will be
prompted by a message in the
display when this needs to be done
(e.g. "Add stock at ...").
– With sensor controlled programmes it
is important that the door is kept shut
for the entire cooking duration.
Otherwise the sensor will take an
incorrect reading and the cooking
results will be affected.
Please follow the relevant messages
in the display.

Baking tips
Baking parchment
Eating food which has been cooked
correctly is important for good
health.
Only bake cakes, pizza, chips etc.
until they are golden. Do not
overcook them.
Because of its PerfectClean anti-stick
surface the universal tray does not
need to be greased or lined with baking
parchment for baking.
Baked goods are easily removed when
done.
Baking parchment is only necessary
when baking:
Bakeware
Please take into account the material of
your bakeware in your choice of oven
function:
Fan plus U, Intensive bake O
Any heat-resistant material can be
used.
Conventional heat V
Dark metal, enamel or aluminium
baking tins with a matt finish, as well as
heat-resistant glass and ceramic
dishes can be used.
Bright, shiny metal tins result in uneven
or poor browning and in some cases
cakes might not cook properly.
10
– Anything with a high salt content
(e. g. pretzels, bread sticks),
because sodium can damage the
PerfectClean surface.
– Meringues or biscuits with a high
egg-white content, because they
are more likely to stick.
Universal tray
When tray baking:
Remember to use double the
quanities of ingredients quoted for
standard baking trays.
Rectangular tins
Place cakes in rectangular tins and loaf
tins with the longer side across the
width of the oven for optimum heat
distribution and even results.

Notes about the charts
Refer to the baking chart and
cookery book supplied with your
oven.

– always select the lowest
temperature given in the chart.
Do not set a temperature higher than
that recommended. Increasing the
temperature may reduce the cooking
time, but will lead to uneven
browning, and unsatisfactory
cooking results.
– Check if the food is cooked at the
end of the shortest time quoted.
To check if a cake is ready, insert a
wooden skewer into the centre.
It is ready if the skewer comes out
clean, without dough or crumbs
sticking to it.
Shelf level
The shelf levels are counted from the
bottom of the oven upwards.
A maximum of two trays can be used at
the same time.
* When baking moist cakes, bread etc
do use more than one tray at a time.
Frozen food
When baking frozen products such as
cakes, pizza and baguettes, use the
lowest temperature quoted on the
manufacturer's packaging. Bake on a
layer of baking parchment placed on
the rack. Cooking large frozen items on
the universal tray can cause the metal
to distort. This distortion would increase
with subsequent use.
Small items of frozen food such as
oven chips or potato croquettes can
be cooked on the universal tray. Place
them on baking parchment and select
the lowest temperature quoted on the
manufacturer's packaging. Turn several
times during cooking.

You can also use Conventional heat V.
The food probe can be used to monitor the temperature
when roasting (see "Food probe" in the operating
instructions supplied with the appliance).
See the Roasting chart for suggested core temperatures.
The Miele Gourmet oven dish, roasting pans with a lid,
ovenproof china or glass, roasting bags, dishes made from
earthenware or cast iron, the universal tray with anti-splash
insert and rack on top of the universal tray.
We recommend roasting in a covered pot or roasting dish
– this ensures that there is sufficient stock for making
gravy
– and the oven stays cleaner, too.
Shelf level
1st from the bottom
Shelf level 1 should be used in most instances.
Pre-heating
Generally not
required
Place the roasting pan on the rack into a cold oven.
Exception: Pre-heating is required when roasting beef/fillet.
Temperature
Please refer to the
roasting chart.
– Do not select a higher temperature than that suggested.
The meat will brown on the outside, but will not be
properly cooked through.
– With Auto roast [, set the temperature 20°C lower than
for Conventional heat V.
– 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.
– For roasting directly on the rack, set the temperature
20°C lower than for roasting in a covered pot.
Roasting duration
Please refer to the
roasting chart.
To calculate the roasting time: The traditional British
method is to allow 15 to 20 minutes per lb/450 grammes,
according to type of meat, plus approx. 20 minutes,
adjusting the length of time as roasting proceeds to obtain
the required result.

Roasting tips
Useful tips
Browning
Browning only occurs towards the end
of the roasting time. Remove the lid
about halfway through the roasting time
if a more intensive browning result is
desired.
Standing time
At the end of the programme, 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.
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.

Slow cooking
This type of cooking is ideal for cooking
beef, pork, veal or lamb when a tender
result is required.
Meat cooked at a low temperature over
a long period will be tender and
succulent.
First the meat needs to be seared all
over at a high temperature on the hob
in order to seal it.
The cooking process is then continued
in the oven on the Slow cooking
programme. The meat juices inside the
joint will start to circulate evenly
throughout the meat to reach the outer
layers.
This gives very tender and succulent
results.
^ Whilst the oven is pre-heating, sear
the meat thoroughly on the hob.
^ Then place the meat on the rack and
insert the food probe into a fleshy
part of the meat.
Please also refer to the "Food probe"
section of the operating instruction
manual for your oven.
^ Place the rack together with the
universal tray on the shelf level
specified.
,Take care: the top heating
element / grill element in the oven
will be hot. Danger of burning.
This Automatic programme
incorporates a cooking function, a
temperature and a core temperature.
At the end of the programme the
message "Programme finished" will
appear in the display and the buzzer
will sound.
Using the Slow cooking
programme
If the meat is not cooked to your
satisfaction, you can extend the
cooking programme.
Select the "Continue cooking" option.
^ Select Slow cooking from the main
menu or from the list of Automatic
programmes.
^ Follow the messages given in the
display until the programme starts.
Food will be kept warm for a certain
period if it is not removed from the
appliance at the end of the programme.
"Keeping warm" will appear in the
display.
Place the universal tray with the rack
on top in the oven for the pre-heating
phase.
17
Slow cooking
Tips
Useful tips
Use lean meat which has been
correctly hung and trimmed. Bones
should be removed before cooking.
Because it has been cooked using low
temperatures,
For searing use a suitable cooking oil
that can withstand high temperatures.
Do not cover meat during cooking.
Cooking takes between 2-4 hours
depending on the size and amount of
meat and on the degree of doneness
and browning required.
If you are cooking several pieces of
meat together, select pieces that are
similar in size. Insert the food probe in
the largest piece of meat.
Meat can be carved straight from the
oven. It does not need to rest.
18
– meat can be kept warm quite safely
in the oven until it is served. This will
not affect results in any way.
– the meat is an ideal temperature to
eat straight away. Serve on preheated plates with very hot sauce or
gravy to prevent it cooling down too
quickly.
Slow cooking
Low temperature cooking
without using the Automatic
programme
We recommend using the universal
tray with the rack on top.
^ Select the "Conventional heat"
function.
^ Place the universal tray with rack in
the oven and pre-heat it at 130 °C for
approx. 15 minutes.
^ Whilst the oven is pre-heating, sear
the meat thoroughly on the hob.
^ Insert the food probe into a fleshy
part of the meat. The metal tip must
go right into the meat.
^ Place the meat on the rack.
^ Reduce the temperature to 100 °C.

Pre-heat the grill for approx. 5 minutes with the door shut.
Temperature
Please refer to the
grilling chart.
– For thin cuts of meat
(e. g. chops or steak): 275 °C
– For grilling thicker items,
(e. g. rolled meat, poultry): 200–220 °C
– Do not select a higher temperature than that suggested.
The meat will brown on the outside, but will not cook
properly on the inside.
Grilling time
Please refer to the
grilling chart.
– Flat pieces of fish and meat usually take 6 – -8 minutes
per side. Thicker pieces take a little longer.
– With rolled meat, allow approx. 10 minutes per cm diameter.
– Turn food half way through cooking.
21
Grilling tips
Preparing food for grilling
Rinse briefly under running cold water,
pat dry and season with pepper and
herbs. Do not season meat with salt
before grilling as this draws the juices
out.
Add a little oil to lean meat if necessary.
Do not use other types of fat as they
can burn and cause smoke.
Clean fish in the normal way. To
enhance the flavour, add a little salt or
squeeze a little lemon juice over the
fish.
Grilling
^ Select the required function and set
the temperature.
^ Pre-heat the grill for approx.
5 minutes with the door shut.
^ Push the rotisserie holders into the
sides of the universal tray until they
click into position.
^ Secure the meat to the rotisserie spit
using clamps, making sure it is held
centrally. Meat needs to be balanced
in the middle to give even rotation.
^ Place the tray and rack under the grill
and shut the door.
^ Turn food half way through cooking.
Grilling with the rotisserie
(depending on model)
Select the cooking function and the
temperature and then switch the grill
motor on. Slide the universal tray into
the first shelf level. This automatically
engages the rotisserie. The grill
motor will then start up and turn the
rotisserie. Food is grilled evenly on
all sides as it rotates.
^ Insert the pointed end of the
rotisserie (1.) into the motor slot at the
back of the rotisserie set up and set
the other end onto the holder (2.) as
illustrated.
^ Select the function required.
22
Grilling tips
^ Set the temperature and select OK to
confirm.
^ Scroll down the list of options until
"Grill motor" appears in the display.
^ Select "Grill motor", then select the
"On" option and confirm your choice
with "OK".
^ Place the universal tray holding the
assembled rotisserie into the oven on
the shelf level 1.
The rotisserie will automatically fit into
the motor slot on the back wall of the
oven.
Food is grilled evenly on all sides as it
rotates.
Useful tips
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.
To grill thicker pieces of food more
gradually after an initial high
temperature, continue grilling at a lower
temperature setting or use a lower shelf
runner 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 will still be
red on the inside ("rare").
– If there is some resistance the inside
will be pink ("medium").
Special clamps for grilling poultry and
kebabs on the rotisserie are available
from your dealer or the Miele Spare
Parts Dept.
– If there is great resistance, it is
throughly cooked through ("well
done").
Switching on the grill motor after a
cooking process has started
Selecting "Change" brings up all the
options which can be changed.
^ Select "Grill motor", then select the
"On" option and confirm your choice
with "OK".

Defrost
The Defrost P function uses the fan to
circulate the air in the oven.
You can set a temperature of between
25 and 50 °C.
Please note:
– Where possible remove the
packaging and put the food to be
defrosted on the universal tray or into
a suitable dish.
– When defrosting poultry, put it on the
rack over the universal tray 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 poisoning.
Defrosting times
The time needed for defrosting
depends on the type and weight of the
food, and at what temperature it was
deep frozen. The following chart is for
guidance only. It is important to check
that food is thoroughly defrosted.

Cooking ready meals
The Automatic programmes available make it easy to cook ready meals with
perfect results.
However, if you do not want to use an Automatic programme you can enter the
settings for a cooking programme manually. We recommend using Fan plus U.
^ Select the function you want and set a temperature.
^ Pre-heat the oven.
^ Place the food in the oven once it has heated up.
Cook frozen desserts and pizza on baking paper on the rack rather than in the
universal tray. Cooking large frozen items in the universal tray can cause the
metal to distort. This distortion will increase with each subsequent use.
Frozen food such as oven chips or croquette potatoes can, however, be
cooked on baking parchment in the universal tray.

Meat
Notes for cooking meat using
Automatic programmes
– Meat weighing less than 1000 g is
not suitable for cooking in an
Automatic programme as it is likely to
dry out.
– The Miele Gourmet oven dishes are
ideal for cooking meat in the
Automatic programmes, as there is
plenty of space to add liquid. When
using ovenproof glass, ceramic or
stainless steel roasting dishes, it
might be necessary to reduce the
quantity of liquid being added.
– If you are using the food probe,
make sure that the metal tip is
inserted into the thickest part of the
meat and that the handle is angled
upwards as much as possible.
– If you are cooking several pieces of
meat together, select pieces that are
similar in size. If using the food probe
it should be used in the largest
piece.
– With the exception of roast beef,
meat can be cooked covered or
uncovered. The programme you
select will guide you.
– Some programmes require the
addition of extra liquid part way
through the cooking time, and
sometimes the lid needs to be
removed. This will be indicated in the
display.

Poultry
Notes for cooking poultry
using Automatic programmes
– Poultry weighing less than 900 g is
not suitable for cooking in an
Automatic programme as it is likely to
dry out.
– The Miele Gourmet oven dishes are
ideal for cooking poultry in the
Automatic programmes, as there is
plenty of space to add liquid. When
using ovenproof glass, ceramic or
stainless steel roasting dishes, it
might be necessary to reduce the
quantity of liquid being added.
– Insert the food probe into the area
between the thigh and the breast,
and on larger birds into the breast.
Make sure that the metal tip is
inserted as deeply as possible into
the thickest part of the bird, and that
the handle is angled upwards.
– If you are cooking several birds
together, select ones that are similar
in size. Insert the food probe into the
largest bird.
– Always place poultry in the oven with
the breast uppermost. Some
programmes require the addition of
extra liquid part way through the
cooking time, and sometimes the lid
needs to be removed. This will be
indicated in the display.
