placing one rack on the left and the other on the right.
Another rack can be obtained from Miele or from your Miele
dealer (see "Optional accessories").
18
Keeping food warm
This function is for keeping food warm that has just been
cooked, i.e. food that is still hot. It is not for reheating food
that has gone cold.
– In order to ensure that the temperature does not drop
below the minimum required for keeping food warm
(65°C), select the s function only.
– Pre-heat the drawer thoroughly for 15 minutes to ensure
that it has reached the required temperature.
– Whilst the appliance is heating up, place the empty dishes
in it to warm them up. Then place the hot food into the
pre-heated dishes.
– Do not cover roast or fried foods which you want to keep
crisp. These types of food need to be kept warm at a
higher temperature.
– Cover food with a high moisture content, liquids and foods
which can develop a skin, with aluminium foil or a plate.
– To avoid spillages, do not overfill dishes.
– Freshly cooked food is hotter than food which is being kept
warm. Serve food which is being kept warm on pre-heated
plates.
– Nutrients are lost when food is cooked, and continue to
diminish when food is kept warm. The longer food is kept
warm for, the greater the loss of nutrients.
– We do not recommend food being kept warm for too long,
as it will continue to cook.
– Do not slam the drawer open or shut. Liquids could spill
over and get into the vents.
– Food may cool down if the drawer is opened and shut too
often.

Warming crockery
– Distribute the crockery over the whole area of the drawer.
Stacks of plates heat up more slowly than individual pieces
of crockery. If large stacks of plates are unavoidable,
place them at the front of the drawer. Use the rack
(depending on model).
– Do not place large serving dishes right up against the
vents. They will cover the warm air outlets, and the
crockery will not heat up evenly.
– For cups and glasses, only select the / function to ensure
that the maximum temperature (60°C) is not exceeded.
– Heated crockery cools down very quickly. Do not remove it
from the drawer until just before you need it.
Heating up times
Various factors will affect the heating up times:
– The material and thickness of the crockery
– The amount of crockery
– How the crockery is arranged
– The temperature setting.
It is therefore not possible to state precise times.
However, the following information can be used as a guide:
On the H settings, it takes approx.
– 30 to 35 minutes for 6 place settings to heat up evenly.
– 40 to 45 minutes for 12 place settings to heat up evenly.
As you use the plate warmer, you will get to know which
setting suits your own needs best.

Other usages
Low-temperature cooking
Meat can be cooked at a constant low temperature over a
longer period of time, with very tender results.
It is possible to use the food warming drawer to cook meat at
a low temperature. This is only suitable where the core
temperature does not exceed 65°C. The meat must be
seared first.
Cooking duration/core temperature
The cooking duration depends on the size of the individual
pieces of meat, and can be between 1 and 6 hours.
The core temperature is important for a good cooking result.
The higher the core temperature, the dryer the meat will
become. At a lower core temperature, the meat retains its
succulence. It is essential to maintain a constant temperature.
A meat thermometer can be used to monitor the core
temperature.
To cook meat in the food warming drawer
^ Pre-heat the warming drawer.
^ Sear the meat on all sides over a high heat on the hob. The
heat closes the pores of the meat, and seals in the juices.
^ Arrange the meat in a roasting pan or on a plate, and cover
with aluminium foil. Place the roasting pan or plate in the
floor of the drawer. See the following table for temperature
settings.
^ Serve the meat on warm plates to stop it cooling too
quickly.

27
Problem solving guide
. . . crockery is not warm enough
Check whether
– the correct temperature setting has been selected.
– the vents have been covered up.
– the crockery has been allowed to heat up for a sufficiently
long time.
Various factors will affect how long the crockery will take to
heat up, for example:
– The material and thickness of the crockery
– The amount of crockery
– How the crockery is arranged
– The temperature setting.
. . . the crockery is too hot
Check that the correct temperature has been set.
. . . a noise can be heard when the drawer is being used
This is not a fault. The noise is caused by the fan, which
distributes the heat evenly through the drawer. The fan works
at intervals on the "Keeping food warm" function.

Safety instructions for installation
~ Before connecting the appliance to the mains electricity
supply make sure that the connection data on the data plate
(voltage and connected load) correspond with the mains
electricity supply, otherwise the appliance could be
damaged. Consult a qualified electrician if in any doubt.
~ The socket and on-off switch should be easily accessible
after the appliance has been built in.
~ The food warming drawer may only be built in in
combination with those appliances quoted by the
manufacturer as being suitable. The manufacturer cannot
guarantee trouble-free operation if the appliance is operated
in combination with appliances other than those quoted by
the manufacturer as being suitable.
~ When building in the food warming drawer in combination
with another suitable appliance, the food warming drawer
must be fitted above a fixed interim shelf in the housing unit
to ensure that the housing unit can suport both its weight and
that of the other appliance.
~ As the combination appliance is placed directly on top of
the food warming drawer once it is built in, an interim shelf is
not necessary between the two appliances.
~ The appliance must be built in so that
the contents of the drawer can be seen. This is to avoid
scalding from hot food spilling over. There must be enough
space for the drawer to be pulled out fully.
~ This appliance may only be installed in mobile installations
such as ships if a risk assessment of the installation has been
carried out by a suitably qualified engineer.
~ The food warming drawer is available in two models,
which differ in height. The building-in dimensions for the food
warming drawer must be added to the building-in dimensions
for the combination appliance to establish the niche size
required.
When building in the combination appliance, it is essential
to follow the instructions given in the operating and
installation instructions supplied with the combination
appliance.
All dimensions in this instruction booklet are given in mm.
