Warning and Safety instructions
Installation and connection
If the appliance is supplied without
a plug, or if the plug is removed,
the appliance must be installed and
connected by a suitably qualified and
competent person in strict accordance
with local and national safety
regulations. The manufacturer cannot
be held liable for damage caused by
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 most
important that this basic safety
requirement is tested regularly, and if
there is any doubt, the electrical wiring
in the home 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).
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.
The appliance must be installed in
a such a position that you can
safely monitor the level of food and
liquid in cooking containers and the water level in the water container.
Otherwise you may risk scalding or
burning yourself with hot water and
food when taking containers out of the
oven.
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 (e.g. danger of overheating).
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, operation
and care of the appliance. This way you
will avoid the risk of accidents and
damage to the appliance.
Built-in appliances must not be
used until after they have been
correctly installed. This is necessary to
ensure that all electrical components
are shielded.
This appliance is intended for
domestic use only and is not to be
used for commercial purposes.
Do not operate the appliance
without food in it (except: when
heating up for the first time and when
running the descaling programme).
This appliance must only be used
as described in these instructions.
Any other usage is at the owner's risk
and could be dangerous. The
manufacturer cannot be held liable for
damage caused by incorrect or
improper use of the appliance.
Do not immerse the water
container in water, or clean it in a
dishwasher. Connecting the water
container into the appliance when wet
could cause an electric shock.
10
For reasons of hygiene and to
prevent the build-up of moisture in
the appliance, the water container
should be emptied after each use.
The drip channels should be wiped
dry with a soft cloth after each
programme.
Leave the door open until the
moisture in the cooking
compartment has dissipated and the
interior is dry.
If the appliance is not going to be
used for a longer period of time,
e.g. whilst on holiday, it should be
thoroughly cleaned beforehand to
prevent the build up of odours etc.
Refer to "Before using for the first time"
and carry out the procedure as
described. Leave the door open
afterwards.
Warning and Safety instructions
Safety with children
The appliance must be installed at
such a height that small children
cannot reach the appliance door, which
gets very hot during use.
Use the safety lock to prevent
children operating the appliance or
altering the settings.
The appliance is only intended for
use by adults who have read these
operating instructions. Keep children
well away. They will not understand the
potential danger of touching the
appliance. It is therefore important to
supervise children at all times.
Warning: Take care in the area
around the hinges. Danger of
injury. Keep children well away.
Keep young children away from the
appliance at all times, and do not
let them swing on the door.
Food 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 all packaging
safely as soon as possible.
This appliance is not a toy. Do not
allow children to play with it.
The appliance becomes very hot
during use and remains hot for
some time after switching off. To
safeguard against burning, keep
children out of the vicinity of the
appliance until it has cooled down.
11
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 foods 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 proprietary citric acid
based descaling agents or
descaling tablets to descale the
appliance (available from the Spare
Parts Dept). 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.
12
Although this is a steam oven,
under no circumstances should a
steam cleaner be used to clean it. The
steam from the cleaning appliance
could reach the live 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 in the container there is
something wrong. Call the Service
Department.
Warning and Safety instructions
Protection from burning and
scalding
The appliance, especially the door
and the area of 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.
When putting dishes 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 roof of the
oven. Danger of burning and scalding.
Take care not to tip the water
container when taking it out of the
oven. Hot water can scald.
Take care when opening the door
not to spill any hot water that has
collected in the drip channel.
For added protection, it is
advisable to use heat-resistant pot
holders or oven gloves when using the
appliance. 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.
13
Warning and Safety instructions
Appliance faults
Further safety notes
If there is any damage to the
appliance, the appliance must be
switched off and disconnected from the
mains supply immediately. It should
not be used again until it has been
repaired. If the appliance has not yet
been fully installed, the electricity cable
must be disconnected from the supply
point. If connected via a plug and
socket, switch off at the socket and
withdraw the plug. Pull on the plug and
not the cable. Contact the Service
Department.
Do not reconnect the appliance to the
mains electricity supply until after it has
been repaired.
When using an electric socket near
the oven, care should be taken that
the cable of the appliance cannot get
trapped by the oven door. The
insulation on the cable could become
damaged, giving rise to an electric
shock hazard.
Repairs should only be carried out
by a suitably qualified and trained
person in accordance with local and
national safety regulations. Repairs and
other work by unqualified persons
could be very dangerous and could
damage the appliance. The
manufacturer cannot be held liable for
unauthorised work. Never open the
housing 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.
14
Always ensure that food is
sufficiently cooked or reheated.
Many factors will affect the overall
cooking time, including the size and
amount of food and its temperature.
Some foods, e.g. poultry, may contain
micro-organisms which are only
destroyed by cooking at a sufficiently
high temperature for long enough. If in
any 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. Danger of injury.
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 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.
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 available recycling schemes.
Ensure that the appliance presents no
danger to children while being stored
for disposal.
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.
15
Before using for the first time
General notes
The appliance is set up at the factory
for English. If you wish to reset it to a
different language see "Standard
settings".
Do not be concerned 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
to run for a while after the oven has
been switched off. If you want to
reduce this "run-on" time you can do so
by switching the appliance off and
removing the water container.
16
A data plate for your appliance is
supplied with this documentation. It
should be stuck into the space
provided at the end of the instruction
book.

Operation
Setting a cooking time
After confirming the (recommended)
temperature, 3 zeros will appear in the
display, and the time symbol g will
start flashing.
g
Proceed as follows:
^ Set the required time, e.g. 20
minutes, using the time/temperature
selector.
g
A time of between 1 minute (0:01) and
3 hours 59 minutes (3:59) can be set.
^ Press the time/temperature selector
The cooking time is now confirmed and
the g symbol will stop flashing.
24
The charts later in these operating
instructions and the cookery book give
suggested cooking times for various
types of food. Remember that the
cooking time is not dependent on the
amount of food, but on the size of the
food. For example, large potatoes
require a longer cooking time than
smaller potatoes.
To achieve good results using the times
quoted, please do not cook quantities
of food for more than 6-8 servings.
Cooking times will also vary depending
on the cooking container used (see
"Suitable containers").
Operation
To start a programme
Manual start:
The appliance is set up ex-works so
that it automatically starts as soon as
you have confirmed the cooking time.
After you have confirmed the cooking
time, the Start symbol h will appear in
the time/temperature display and you
will need to confirm it again to start the
programme manually.
If you prefer to always start the
programme manually, you will have to
reset the standard setting for START to
"manual" (see "Standard settings").
z

Please note that when preparing food
which has been refrigerated or frozen,
the temperature in the cooking
compartment will fall initially before
starting to rise gradually.
26
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 depends
on the quantity and initial temperature
of the food and does not need to be
added to the duration.
Operation
Interrupting a programme
You can interrupt a programme at any
time by opening the door.
The heating will be switched off and the
cooking time remaining stored in

Practical tips
Suitable containers
The appliance is supplied with stainless
steel cookware. 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.
34
– 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
flat 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.
Practical tips
Heat-resistant glass, ceramics,
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.
– 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.
– Food will take considerably longer to
cook than the time quoted if the dish
has thick sides.

Practical tips
Tips on steaming
– 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 runner level. You
can also cook on several levels at
the same time. This will not alter the
cooking time.
– 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 time is approximately the
same as for fresh vegetables.
– Cooking with steam retains the true
taste of the food better than
conventional cooking. Food should
not therefore be seasoned until after
it has been cooked.
– When cooking food which contains a
lot of liquid, do not fill higher than the
lowest ridge inside the container.
– 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.
– 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.
– Grease perforated containers
beforehand if using them to cook fish
in its skin, 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 on the rack above any
perforated containers.

Practical tips
Deep frozen food can also be defrosted
using steam in this appliance.
Defrosting this way takes much less
time than when defrosting at room
temperature.
Proceed as follows:
^ You can place the meat in a pot or on
the rack.
^ Select the DEFROST function and
confirm your selection.
^ Change the recommended
temperature if necessary (see chart)
and confirm your selection.
^ Select the defrost time (see chart)
and start the programme.
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!
– Food which will not drip can be
placed on the rack or in a dish once
the wrapping has been removed.
42
– Fish does not need to be fully
defrosted before cooking. Defrost so
that the surface is sufficiently thawed
to take herbs and seasoning.
– 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.
– Defrost baked goods in a sealed
freezer bag.

Practical tips
Meal planning
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, 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. Our test kitchen
recommends the following procedure,
as shown in this example (Function:
COOK UNIVERSAL / 100 °C):
Rice
Fish fillet
Broccoli
44
20 minutes
6 minutes
4 minutes
^ To calculte the cooking time subtract
the cooking time for the fish from the
time for the rice: 20 - 6 = 14
Place the rice in the oven and cook
for 14 minutes.
^ To calculate the next cooking time
subtract the time for the broccoli from
the time for the fish: 6 - 4 = 2
Cook the rice and the fish for 2
minutes then put the broccoli in the
oven.
^ Then cook all three for the remaining
time, i.e. 4 minutes.
At the end of the cooking time you can
remove all the dishes at the same time.
Practical tips
Blanching
Disinfecting baby bottles
You can use your steam oven to blanch
vegetables and fruit 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.
Proceed as follows:
^ Put the prepared vegetables/fruit
(cleaned, washed, chopped etc.) into
a perforated cooking container.
^ Select the COOK VEG function and
confirm the recommended
temperature of 100 °C.
^ Set a time of 1 minute and confirm
your selection.
^ Once blanched, plunge the
vegetables/fruit into ice cold water to

Cleaning and care
General notes
Clean the whole appliance and then dry
it thoroughly after each use. Allow the
appliance to cool down before
cleaning.
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 the 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.
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 not
use sponges etc. which have
previously been used with abrasive
cleaning agents. These would
damage the surface.
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 without the use of chemicals.
46
Cleaning and care
The appliance front and
housing
Condensate tray, rack and
cooking containers
The appliance front, controls and also
the housing on built-under and
freestanding units 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.
The condensate tray, rack and cooking
containers should be washed and dried
each time they are used.
They are all dishwasher safe.
On aluminium ovens (see data plate)
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.
Appliances with glass fronts:
A proprietary glass cleaning agent may
be used.
Appliances with stainless steel fronts
and/or stainless steel housing:
We recommend using a non-abrasive
proprietary cleaning and conditioning
agent for stainless steel surfaces. Apply
with an even pressure following the
direction of the "grain". Following the
manufacturer's instructions on the label,
apply with an even pressure following
the direction of the "grain".
47
Cleaning and care
Oven interior
Runners
Clean the cooking compartment after
each use.
It is advisable to remove the side
runners when you wish to give the oven
a thorough clean.
Use a sponge or absorbent cloth to
wipe off the condensate which has built
up in the compartment.
Most cooking residues can be removed
easily with a damp cloth and a mild
solution of hot water and washing up
liquid.
Proceed as follows:
^ Pull on the fixing knob to release it.
The runners can then be removed
easily. Remove them by pulling them
first of all to the side a, and then out
from the back b .
Wipe the interior with clean water and
rub dry.
Also clean and dry the roof of the oven,
condensate channels, inside of the
door and compartment for the water
container.
However, make sure that you do not
get any washing-up liquid solution
on the door seal.
The runners can be cleaned with water
and washing up liquid or in a
dishwasher.
To re-fit the runners reverse the above
procedure. First fit them into the back of
the oven and them push them in at the
sides.
48
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 thoroughly before
replacing it in the water container.
When replacing the insert (see
illustration), guide it in at an angle a
and then push the side with the
opening downwards b.
b
a
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 immerse the water container
in water or clean it in a dishwasher.
Never use cleaning agents or
washing up liquids which contain
tensides.
Do not use abrasive sponges or
hard brushes.
49
Cleaning and care
Seals
Door seal
Clean and dry the door seal after each
use. Use a cloth or sponge and hot water. Do not use washing up liquid.
The door seal can become porous and
cracked over time. If this is the case, it
should be replaced with a new seal.
Never use cleaning agents or
washing up liquids which contain
tensides.
Coupling seal
If the water container becomes difficult
to remove and replace, you will need to
lubricate the seal. Rub a small amount
of the silicone grease supplied (see
"Accessories supplied") into the inside
of the seal. When doing this, do not
detach the seal but leave it in place.
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.
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.
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.
50
Cleaning and care
Descaling
Only use proprietary citric acid
based descaling agents or
descaling tablets to descale the
appliance (available from the Spare
Parts Dept). Follow the
manufacturer's instructions given on
the packaging. Do not use vinegar
or descaling agents containing
vinegar, as these can cause
corrosion.
With aluminium appliances (see
data plate) ensure that the descaling
agent does not come into contact
with the aluminium surfaces as this
could cause marks. However, should
any descaling agent get onto the
aluminium surfaces, wipe it away immediately.
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 5
will appear in the time/temperature
display.
k
The display indicates that the appliance
can be used a further 5 times before it
locks out. If the appliance is not
descaled immediately, a 4 will appear
in the display the next time the

until it has been used five times. The
appliance will then lock. "DESCALE" will
appear in the display and the appliance
must be descaled before it can be
used again.
51
Cleaning and care
Proceed as follows:
^ Fill the water container with 1 litre of
descaling solution. To make the
solution use cold water and the
appropriate amount of citric acid
based household descaling agent or
descaling tablets as instructed on the
packaging.

DESCALE k, if this has not
appeared automatically in the
display.
^ Press the selector to confirm your
selection.
"Refill descaling agent" will appear in
the function display.
^ Push the water container into the
appliance until it connects.
52
The k symbol, the processing time of
22 minutes and the Start symbol h will
appear in the display.
^ Press the time/temperature selector.

will be shown counting down. It is only
possible to cancel the descaling
process during the first minute. After
that the process cannot be cancelled.
Do not adjust the function selector
during the descaling process. If it is
turned before the end of the
process, the whole process will have
to be started from the beginning
again.
Cleaning and care
When 10 minutes remain, an audible
tone will sound and "Rinse out water
tank" will appear in the display.
^ Remove the water container and
empty it out. Remove the insert.
^ Rinse the water container and the
insert thoroughly.
^ Replace the insert and fill the water
container with 1 litre of water. Push
the water container into the appliance
