10
Warning and Safety instructions
Technical safety
~ Unauthorised installation, maintenance and repairs can cause
considerable danger for the user. Installation, maintenance and
repairs must only be carried out by a Miele authorised technician.
~ Never use a damaged oven. It could be dangerous. Check it for
visible signs of damage before using it.
~ Operating a damaged appliance can result in microwave leakage
and present a hazard to the user. Do not use the appliance if:
– the door is warped,
– the door hinges are loose,
– holes or cracks are visible in the casing, the door, the door seal or
the oven interior walls.
~ The electrical safety of this appliance can only be guaranteed
when correctly earthed. It is essential that this standard safety
requirement is met. If in any doubt please have the electrical
installation tested by a qualified electrician.
~ To avoid the risk of damage to the oven, make sure that the
connection data on the data plate (voltage and frequency) match
the mains electricity supply before connecting the oven to the
mains. Consult a qualified electrician if in doubt.
~ Do not connect the appliance to the mains electricity supply by a
multi-socket unit or an extension lead. These do not guarantee the
required safety of the appliance (fire hazard).
11
Warning and Safety instructions
~ For safety reasons, this appliance may only be used after it has
been built in.
~ The oven must not be used in a non-stationary location
(e.g. on a
ship).
~ Tampering with electrical connections or components and
mechanical parts is highly dangerous to the user and can cause
operational faults.
Never open the casing of the appliance.
~ While the appliance is under guarantee, repairs should only be
undertaken by a Miele authorised service technician. Otherwise the
guarantee is invalidated.
~ Miele can only guarantee the safety of the appliance when
genuine original Miele replacement parts are used. Faulty
components must only be replaced by Miele spare parts.
~ If the connection cable is damaged or if the oven is supplied
without a cable, it must be replaced or fitted with a special
connection cable by a Miele authorised technician (see "Electrical
connection").
12
Warning and Safety instructions
~ During installation, maintenance and repair work, the appliance
must be disconnected from the mains electricity supply, e.g. if the
oven lighting is faulty (see "Problem solving guide" and "Electrical
connection").
~ In order to function correctly, the oven requires an adequate
supply of cool air. Ensure that the supply of cool air is not impaired
(e.g. by heat insulation strips in the housing unit). Please also ensure
that the cool air supply is not unduly heated by other heat sources
such as a solid fuel stove.
~ If the oven is installed behind a furniture panel (e.g. a door),
ensure that the door is never closed whilst the oven is in use. Heat
and moisture can build up behind a closed furniture panel and
cause subsequent damage to the oven, the housing unit and the
floor. Do not close the door until the oven has cooled down
completely.
13
Warning and Safety instructions
Correct use
, Danger of burning.
The oven becomes hot when in use.
Depending on function being used, you could burn yourself on
the heating elements, oven interior, cooked food or oven
accessories.
Wear oven gloves when placing food in the oven, turning or
removing it and when adjusting oven shelves etc. in a hot oven.
~ Due to the high temperatures radiated, objects left near the oven
when it is in use could start to burn.
Do not use the oven to heat up the room.
~ Oil and fat can ignite if overheated. Never leave the oven
unattended when cooking with oil and fat. Do not use the oven for
deep fat frying.
Never use water to extinguish ignited oil or fat. Switch the oven off
immediately and then suffocate the flames by keeping the oven door
closed.
14
Warning and Safety instructions
~ Please be aware that durations when using microwave power are
often considerably shorter when cooking, reheating and defrosting
than when using functions without microwave power. Excessively
long cooking times can lead to food drying out and burning or could
even cause it to catch fire.
Make sure you keep to recommended grilling times when using the
grill. Do not use Microwave solo _ for drying items such as flowers,
herbs, bread or rolls. Never use functions with the grill for bake-off
products such as bread or bread rolls, or for drying flowers or herbs.
Use Fan plus U for these procedures and monitor the process
carefully.
~ If using alcohol in your recipes, please be aware that high
temperatures can cause the alcohol to vaporise. The vapour can
catch fire on hot heating elements.
~ When using residual heat to keep food in the oven warm, the high
humidity and amount of condensation in the oven can cause
corrosion in the oven. The control panel, the worktop or the housing
unit can also suffer damage.
Always cover food when using the Microwave solo _. Once food is
cooked through, use a lower power for continued cooking to reduce
the amount of steam produced from the food.
When using residual heat do not switch the oven off. Instead set the
temperature to the lowest setting and leave the oven on the selected
function.
The fan will then remain on automatically and dissipate the moisture.
~ Food which is stored in the oven or left in it to be kept warm can
dry out and the moisture released can lead to corrosion damage in
the oven.
Always cover food that is left in the oven to keep warm.
15
Warning and Safety instructions
~ A build-up of heat can cause damage to the enamel on the floor
of the oven.
When using Fan plus U do not line the floor of the oven with
anything, e. g. aluminium foil or so-called protective liners. Neither
should you place roasting pans or glass trays directly on the oven
floor.
~ It is important that the heat is allowed to spread evenly
throughout the food being cooked. This can be achieved by stirring
and/or turning the food, and observing a sufficiently long standing
time, which should be added to the time needed for cooking,
reheating or defrosting.
~ When heating food and drinks, remember that the heat is created
in the food itself, and that the container will normally be cooler. The
dish is only warmed by the heat of the food.
Before serving, remember to allow a sufficient standing time and
then always check the temperature of the food after taking it out of
the microwave oven. The temperature of the container is not an
indication of the temperature of the food or liquid in it. This is
particularly important when preparing food for babies, children,
and the elderly or infirm. Shake or stir baby milk and food
thoroughly after heating, and try it for temperature to ensure that it
will not scald the baby.
~ The oven is not suitable for cleaning or disinfecting items. Items
can get extremely hot and there is a danger of burning when the
item is removed from the appliance.
~ Do not cook or reheat food or liquids in sealed containers, jars or
bottles. With baby bottles, the screw top and teat must be removed.
Otherwise pressure will build up which can cause the bottle or
container to explode, posing a severe risk of injury.
16
Warning and Safety instructions
~ The boiling rod ensures that the liquid heats up evenly with
bubbles forming at the right time.
When reheating liquids, always place the boiling rod supplied into
the cup or glass.
When boiling and in particular when re-heating liquids, milk, sauces
etc, using microwave power without the boiling rod, the boiling point
of the liquid may be reached without the production of typical
bubbles. The liquid does not boil evenly throughout. This so-called
'boiling delay' can cause a sudden build up of bubbles when the
container is removed from the oven or shaken. This can lead to the
liquid boiling over suddenly and explosively. Danger of scalding and
burning. The formation of bubbles can be so strong that the
pressure forces the oven door open, with a danger of injury and
damage. The user could be injured and the appliance damaged.
~ Eggs can be cooked without their shells using microwave power
only if the yolk membrane has been punctured several times first.
The pressure could otherwise cause the egg yolk to explode.
17
Warning and Safety instructions
~ Eggs in their shells will explode if cooked with microwave power,
even after taking them out of the oven.
They can only be cooked in their shells using microwave heat in a
specially designed egg-boiling device available from specialist
shops. Hard-boiled eggs must not be reheated in the microwave
oven either as they too will explode.
~ Food with a thick skin or peel, such as tomatoes, sausages,
jacket potatoes and aubergines, should be pierced or cut in several
places to allow steam to escape and prevent the food from bursting.
~ To check food temperature, first interrupt the cooking process.
Only use a thermometer specifically approved for food use to
measure the temperature of the food. Do not use a thermometer
containing mercury or liquid as these are not suitable for use with
very high temperatures and break very easily.
~ Do not use the oven to heat up cushions or pads filled with cherry
kernels, wheat grains, lavender or gel, such as those used in
aromatherapy.
These pads can ignite when heated even after they have been
removed from the oven.
~ To avoid fuelling any flames, do not open the oven door if smoke
occurs inside the appliance. Interrupt the process by switching the
appliance off and disconnect it from the mains electricity supply. Do
not open the door until the smoke has dispersed.
~ Dishes with hollow knobs or handles are not suitable for use with
microwave power. Moisture which has gathered in the hollow
recesses can cause pressure to build up and the item can explode.
If the hollow recess is sufficiently ventilated, the item could be used.
However, we recommend that you do not use such dishes in the
microwave oven.
18
Warning and Safety instructions
~ Fire hazard. Using Microwave solo _ or Microwave combination
programmes with plastic dishes which are not microwave safe can
cause them to melt and damage the appliance. Do not use any
containers or cutlery made from or containing metal, aluminium foil,
lead crystal glassware, temperature-sensitive plastics, wooden
utensils or cutlery, metal clips or plastic or paper covered wire ties.
Do not use bowls with milled rims, or plastic pots with the foil lid only
partially removed (see "Suitable containers for microwave use").
~ For functions without microwave power: plastic containers which
are not suitable for use in an oven can melt at high temperatures
and can even damage the oven or catch fire. Only use containers
which are declared by the manufacturer as being suitable for use in
an oven. Follow the manufacturer's instructions on use.
~ Do not leave the microwave oven unattended when reheating or
cooking food in disposable containers made of plastic, paper or
other inflammable materials.
Before using single-use containers make sure they are suitable for
use in microwave ovens. See "Suitable containers for microwave use
- Plastics".
~ Do not reheat food in the oven in heat-retaining bags which are
intended for use in normal ovens.
These heat-retaining bags usually contain a thin layer of aluminium
foil which reflects microwaves. This reflected energy can, in turn,
cause the outer paper covering to become so hot that it ignites.
19
Warning and Safety instructions
~ The oven can suffer damage when using Microwave solo _ or
Combination programmes if it is empty or incorrectly loaded.
For this reason please do not use functions with microwave power to
pre-heat crockery or to dry herbs.
Instead use Fan plus U for these procedures.
~ Do not heat up food in closed containers e.g. tins or sealed jars in
the oven, as pressure will build up in the container, causing it to
explode.
~ You could injure yourself on the open oven door or trip over it.
Avoid leaving the door open unnecessarily.
~ The door can support a maximum weight of 8 kg.
Do not sit on or lean against an open door, and do not place heavy
objects on it. Also make sure that nothing can get trapped between
the door and the oven cavity. The oven could get damaged.
20
Warning and Safety instructions
Cleaning and care
~ Do not use a steam cleaning appliance to clean this appliance.
The steam could reach electrical components and cause a short
circuit.
~ Scratches on the door glass can result in the glass breaking. Do
not use abrasive cleaners, hard sponges, brushes or sharp metal
tools to clean the door glass.
~ Try to avoid the interior walls being splashed with food or liquids
containing salt. If it does happen, wipe these away thoroughly to
avoid corrosion on the stainless steel surface.
Accessories
~ Only use genuine original Miele accessories. Using accessories
from other manufacturers will invalidate the guarantee, and Miele
cannot accept liability.

Caring for the environment
Disposal of the packing
material
Disposing of your old
appliance
The packaging is designed to protect
the appliance from damage during
transportation. The packaging materials
used are selected from materials which
are environmentally friendly for disposal
and should be recycled.
Electrical and electronic appliances
often contain valuable materials. They
also contain materials which, if handled
or disposed of incorrectly, could be
potentially hazardous to human health
and to the environment. They are,
however, essential for the correct
functioning of your appliance. Please
do not therefore dispose of it with your
household waste.
Recycling the packaging reduces the
use of raw materials in the
manufacturing process and also
reduces the amount of waste in landfill
sites.
Please dispose of it at your local
community waste collection / recycling
centre.
Ensure that it presents no danger to
children while being stored for
disposal.

Features
Oven controls
Cooling fan
In addition to operating the various
cooking functions for baking, roasting
and grilling, the oven controls are also
used to operate
The cooling fan will come on
automatically when a cooking
programme is started. The cooling fan
mixes hot air from the oven cavity with
cool room air before venting it out into
the kitchen through vents located
between the appliance door and the
control panel.
– the time of day display,
– a minute minder,
– a timer to automatically switch
cooking programmes on and off,
– Automatic programmes,
– create User programmes,
– settings that can be customised.
The cooling fan will continue to run for a
while after a cooking process to
prevent moisture building up in the
oven, on the control panel or on the
oven housing unit. It will switch itself off
automatically after a while.
Safety switch-off
Safety features
System lock 0
The system lock prevents the oven from
being used unintentionally (see
"Settings - System lock 0").
The system lock will remain activated
even after an interruption to the power
supply.
A function without microwave can be
started without selecting a cooking
duration. To prevent over-use and the
consequent danger of fire, the oven will
switch itself off automatically after a
certain length of time. This can be
between 1 hour and 12 hours
depending on the function and
temperature chosen.
If a combination programme is
followed in quick succession by
another programme using microwave
power, the magnetron (which produces
the microwaves) cannot be switched on
again until approx. 10 seconds have
elapsed. Therefore wait a short while
before starting the second process.

Features
PerfectClean treated surfaces
PerfectClean surfaces have very good
non-stick properties and are much
easier to keep clean than conventional
enamel surfaces, if cleaned regularly.
Food can be taken off these surfaces
easily, and soiling from baking and
roasting is simple to remove.
Food can be sliced or cut up on
PerfectClean surfaces.
However, do not use ceramic knives
as these will scratch the
PerfectClean surface.
Surfaces treated with PerfectClean
enamel can be cleaned as you would
clean glass.
Read the instructions in "Cleaning and
care" so that the benefits of the
non-stick properties and easy cleaning
are retained.
The oven compartment and the rack
have a PerfectClean finish.

functions for preparing food.
Some functions are selected directly
from the control panel.
Others only appear after selecting
€.
Functions which do not use
microwave energy
Grill Y
For grilling larger quantities of thin cuts
(e.g. steaks) and browning baked
dishes.
Fan plus U
This function is used for baking and
roasting on different levels at the same
time.
A lower temperature can be selected
than when using other functions,
because the fan distributes the heat to
the food straight away.
Fan grill \
For grilling thicker cuts of meat
(e. g. roulades, chicken). Lower
temperatures can be used than when
using the Grill Y function, as the fan
distributes the heat to the food straight
away.
52
Auto roast [
(go to Further programmes € to
select this function)
This is used for roasting.
The oven heats initially to a high
temperature (230 °C) which seals the
meat to keep it succulent and tasty.
As soon as this temperature has been
reached, the oven temperature
automatically drops back down to the
pre-selected temperature for continued
roasting.
Gentle bake

This is used for roasting at a high
temperature and continued cooking at
a lower temperature.
During the searing phase the oven
heats up to a high temperature (230°C)
to seal the meat and keep it succulent
and tasty. As soon as this temperature
has been reached, the oven
temperature automatically drops back
down to the pre-selected temperature
for continued roasting.
When baking do not set the microwave
power higher than 150 W.

Microwave power
How it works
In a microwave combination oven there
is a high-frequency tube called a
magnetron. This converts electrical
energy into microwaves. These
microwaves are distributed evenly
throughout the oven interior, and
rebound off the metal sides of the oven
interior to reach the food from all sides.
In order for microwaves to reach the
food, they must be able to penetrate
the cooking utensil being used.
Microwaves can penetrate porcelain,
glass, cardboard and plastics, but not
metal. Do not, therefore, use utensils
made of metal, or which contain metal,
for example in the form of gold or silver
trim. The metal reflects the microwaves
and this could cause sparking. The
microwaves cannot be absorbed.
Microwaves pass through a suitable
container and find their way directly into
the food. All food contains moisture
molecules which, when subjected to
microwave energy, start to oscillate 2.5
thousand million times a second. The
friction caused by this vibration creates
heat, which first starts developing
around the outside of the food and then
slowly penetrates towards the centre.
The moisture, fat and sugar content of
food will affect the speed at which it is
cooked. The more water a food
contains, the quicker it is to reheat or
cook.
54
As heat is produced directly in the
food,
– food can generally be cooked
without adding much liquid or
cooking oil.
– cooking, reheating and defrosting is
quicker than using conventional
methods.
– nutrients, such as vitamins and
minerals, are generally retained.
– the colour, texture and taste of food
are not impaired.
Microwaves stop being produced as
soon as the cooking process is
interrupted or the appliance door is
opened.
When the appliance is in operation, the
closed, sealed door prevents
microwaves escaping from the
appliance.
Power levels
The following power levels can be
selected:
80 W, 150 W, 300 W, 450 W, 600 W,
850 W, 1000 W
Suitable containers for microwave use
Fire hazard. Non-microwave safe
dishes can suffer damage or
damage the oven if used with
Microwave solo _ or Microwave
combination programmes.
Microwaves are reflected by metal,
The material and shape of the
containers used affect cooking results
and times.
Heat distribution is more even in round
and oval shaped flat containers than in
rectangular containers, providing better
results.
Suitable containers for
microwave use
Glassware
pass through glass, porcelain, plastic
and card,
Heat-resistant glass or ceramic glass
are ideal for use with microwave power.
Exception: Do not use crystal glass
as it contains lead which can crack
or shatter in a microwave oven.
Porcelain
Porcelain is a suitable material.
and are absorbed by food.
Exception: Do not use porcelain with
gold or silver edging or items with
hollow knobs or handles, as
insufficient ventilation may cause a
build-up of pressure.
55
Suitable containers for microwave use
Earthenware
– Plastic microwave containers
Decorated earthenware is only suitable
if the decoration is beneath an all-over
glaze.
These are readily available from retail
outlets.
Danger of burning. Wear oven
gloves when removing earthenware
dishes from the oven.
Styrofoam containers can be used for
short, timed warming and reheating of
food.
Plastics
Plastic containers and plastic
disposable containers may only be
used for Microwave solo _ if they
have been declared as suitable for
microwave use by the manufacturer. To
protect the environment it is best to
avoid using single-use containers.
Do not leave the oven unattended
when reheating or cooking food in
disposable containers made of
plastic, paper or other inflammable
materials.
Plastic containers must only be used
with Microwave solo _. They must
not be used with Microwave
combination programmes. They
must be heat-resistant to a minimum
of 110 °C.
Otherwise the plastic may melt and
fuse with the food.
– Styrofoam containers
– Plastic "Boil-in-the-bag" bags
Plastic boiling bags can be used for
cooking and reheating. They should be
pierced beforehand so that steam can
escape.
This prevents a build-up of pressure
and reduces the risk of the bag
bursting.There are also special
steaming bags available which do not
need to be pierced. Please follow
instructions given on the packet.
– Roasting bags and tubes
Please follow the manufacturer's
instructions when using roasting bags
and tubes.
,Do not use metal clips, plastic
clips containing metal parts, or
paper ties containing wire. There is
a danger that they will ignite when
heated.
– Melamine containers
Melamine is not suitable for use in this
oven. Melamine absorbs microwave
energy and gets hot. When purchasing
plasticware, make sure that it is suitable
for use in a microwave oven.
56
Suitable containers for microwave use
Unsuitable
,Dishes with hollow knobs or
handles are not suitable for use with
microwave power. Moisture which
has gathered in the hollow recesses
can cause pressure to build up and
the item can explode. If the hollow
recess is sufficiently ventilated, the
item could be used. However, we
recommend that you do not use
such dishes in the microwave oven.
Metal
Metal reflects microwaves and
obstructs the cooking process.
^ Do not use metal containers,
aluminium, foil, metal cutlery and
china with metallic decoration such
as gold rims or cobalt blue with
Microwave combination
programmes.
Do not use containers where the foil
lid has not been completely
removed as small pieces of foil can
cause sparking.
Exceptions:
The rack supplied with the oven is
suitable for use with all functions
that do not use microwave power
and with Microwave combination
programmes.
The rack should be used on shelf
level 1. Do not place it on the oven
floor.
– Metal bakeware can be used with
microwave combination
programmes.
– Ready-meals in aluminium foil trays
can be defrosted and reheated using
microwave power as long as the lid
is removed.
When using foil trays there is a risk
of arcing or sparks occurring in the
oven. For this reason place the foil
tray on the glass tray and not on the
rack.
The foil tray must be at least 2 cm
away from the oven walls. It must
not touch them.
However, as food is only heated from
the top it is better to remove the food
from the aluminium foil container and
transfer it to a dish suitable for use in
a microwave oven. The heat
distribution will be more even.
57
Suitable containers for microwave use
– For even defrosting and to avoid
overcooking unevenly shaped cuts
of meat, poultry or fish, small pieces
of aluminium foil may be used to
mask wingtips or other thin parts for
the last few minutes of the
programme.
Make sure that the aluminium foil is
at least 2 cm from the oven walls at
all times. It must not touch the walls.
– Metal meat skewers or clamps
should only be used if they are very
small in comparison to the size of the
cut of meat.
Glazes and colours
Some glazes and colours contain metal
and are therefore unsuitable for
microwave functions.
Wood
Wooden dishes are not suitable.
Moisture contained in the wood
evaporates when exposed to
microwave energy, causing the wood to
dry and crack.
Testing dishes for their
suitability
If in doubt as to whether glass,
earthenware or porcelain plates or
dishes are suitable for use with
microwave energy, a simple test can be
performed:
^ Place the container in the middle of
the glass tray and slide the tray into
shelf level 1.
^ Close the door.
^ Select Microwave solo _.
^ Set the highest power level (1000 W)
and a duration of 30 seconds.
^ Start the programme.
At the end of the test, the water in
the glass should be hot and the dish
cool. If the dish is hot, it would be
unwise to use the dish.
If a cracking noise is heard
accompanied by sparks during the
test, switch the appliance off immediately. Any crockery which causes
this reaction is unsuitable for use
with microwave power.
If any doubt exists about the
suitability of a container, please
contact the supplier.
This test cannot be used to check
whether items with hollow knobs or
handles are suitable for use with
microwave power.
58
Suitable containers for microwave use
Placing the dish in the oven
Cover
^ Insert the glass tray on shelf level 1.
A cover:
– prevents too much steam escaping,
especially when cooking foods which
need longer to cook, such as
potatoes.
– speeds up the cooking process.
– prevents food from drying out.
– helps keep the oven interior clean.
^ The dish containing the food should
always be placed in the middle of the
glass tray.
Placing the food directly on the floor
of the oven would give unsatisfactory
and uneven results as the
microwaves would not be able to
reach the food from below.
^ When using Microwave solo _
always cover the food with a lid or
cover made of microwave safe glass
or plastic.
These are available from retail
outlets.
Alternatively, use a clingfilm
recommended for use in a microwave
oven (pierce as instructed by the
manufacturer). Heat can cause normal
clingfilm to distort and fuse with the
food.
59
Suitable containers for microwave use
,The cover can only withstand
temperatures up to 110 °C.
Higher temperatures (e. g. those
used for grilling and Fan plus) can
cause the plastic to distort and fuse
with the food.
The cover should only be used with
Microwave solo _.
The cover should not form a seal
with the container. If the cover is
used with a container which only
has a narrow diameter, there might
not be enough room for
condensation to escape through the
holes in the top. The cover could get
too hot and could start to melt.
60
Do not use a cover if:
– cooking breaded food,
– cooking food which requires a crisp
finish,
– cooking food with a Microwave
combination programme.
,Do not cook or reheat food or
liquids in sealed containers, jars or
bottles. With baby bottles, the screw
top and teat must be removed.
Otherwise pressure builds up which
can cause the bottle or container to
explode, posing a severe risk of
injury.
Tips on saving energy
– Remove any accessories from the
oven that you do not require for
cooking.
– Your oven will use as little energy as
possible if you set the time of day
display to "Time - Display - Off".
– Pre-heat the oven only if instructed to
do so in the recipe or the cooking
chart.
– In the factory default setting of
"Lighting – On for 15 seconds" the
oven lighting will switch off
automatically after 15 seconds if a
programme is running. Touch I at
any time to switch the light back on.
– If possible, do not open the door
during a programme.
If the door is opened during a
programme that is not using
microwave power, the heat in the
oven automatically switches off. The
fans continue to operate. As soon as
the door is closed again, the
programme will continue.
– In general, if a range of temperatures
is given, it is best to select the lower
temperature and to check the food
after the shortest given time.
– Use Fan plus U as you can cook at
temperatures 10–30 °C lower than
when using other functions.
– Fan grill \ can be used for a wide
variety of food. With Fan grill you can
use lower temperatures than with
other grill functions which use the
maximum temperature setting.
Using residual heat
The oven heating will switch off
automatically shortly before the end of
a cooking process for which an automatic switch-off time has been set or
which is using the food probe.
Cooking continues using residual heat.
The heat in the oven is sufficient to
complete the cooking process.
Energy save mode
The oven will switch itself off
automatically to save energy if no other
action is taken within a certain time
frame after switching it on or after the
end of a cooking programme.
The time when this happens will
depend on the selected settings
(function, temperature and duration).
The time of day will be displayed or the
display will remain dark (see "Settings Time - Display").

Notes on using these programmes
– When using the Automatic
programmes the recipes provided
are designed as a guide only.
You can use them for other similar
recipes, including those using
different quantities.
– The oven interior needs to be at
room temperature before starting an
Automatic 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 liquid at ...").
– Some programmes require a
pre-heating phase before food is
placed in the oven. A prompt will
appear to tell you when to add the
food.
– The duration quoted for Automatic
programmes is an estimate. It may
increase or decrease depending on
the programme. The duration, in
particular with meat, will vary
depending on the initial temperature
of the food.
81

Baking
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.
Functions
Fan plus U
Ideal for baking biscuits, sponges,
choux pastry, puff pastry and filo
pastry.
Microwave + Fan plus a
Suitable for dough which requires
longer baking, such as rubbed in,
beaten mixtures and yeast recipes.
The baking duration is shorter.
During baking the microwave power
level must not exceed 150 W.
Bakeware
The choice of bakeware depends on
the oven function.
– Fan plus U:
Bakeware made of any ovenproof
material is suitable. Light-coloured,
thin-walled, non-reflective metal tins
can be used, but results may not be
as good as with dark non-reflective
tins.
88
– Microwave + Fan plus a:
Only use ovenproof dishes suitable
for microwave use (see "Suitable
containers for microwave use"), such
as ovenproof glass or ceramic
dishes as these allow microwaves
through them.
Metal containers reflect microwaves
so food will only cook from above.
Cooking durations would therefore
be longer and metal tins could also
cause sparking. Place the dish on
the glass tray such that it cannot
touch the oven walls. If the dish
being used causes sparking do not
use it for combination cooking again.
Baking parchment
Place chips, croquette potatoes and
similar types of food on baking
parchment.
Baking
Notes on the baking chart
Temperature 6
As a general rule, select the lower
temperature given in the chart.
Baking at temperatures higher than
those recommended may reduce the
cooking time, but will lead to uneven
browning, and unsatisfactory cooking
results.
Baking duration +
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.
ß Microwave + Fan plus a
Insert the glass tray on shelf level 1
and place the baking container on it.
Tips
– Set the cooking duration. When
baking, the oven should not be set to
start a long time off. Otherwise the
cake mixture or dough will dry out,
and the raising agents will lose their
effectiveness.
– Position rectangular tins with the
longer side across the width of the
oven for optimum heat distribution
and even baking results.
Shelf level ³
ß Fan plus U
– Cakes in baking tins: Shelf level 1
– Flat items (e. g. biscuits, tray bakes):

The data for the recommended function is printed in bold.
Unless otherwise stated, the durations given are for an oven which has not been
pre-heated. With a pre-heated oven, shorten durations by up to 10 minutes.
Please observe specified temperature ranges, microwave power levels, shelf
levels and durations. They take into account the different types of baking tins,
amount of cake mixture and baking practices.
In general, if a range of temperatures is given, it is best to select the lower
temperature and to check the food after the shortest duration.

Roasting
Functions
Pot roasting
Fan plus U / Auto roast [
We recommend roasting in covered
oven dishes. Meat will be tender and
there will be sufficient stock for making
gravy. The oven also stays cleaner than
when roasting on the rack.
Use this programme for roasting meat,
fish and poultry that needs to be well
browned.
Microwave + Fan plus a /
Microwave + Auto roast L
The programme duration is shorter with
these functions.
The following microwave power levels
should be used throughout roasting:
– For meat and fish: max. 300 W,
^ Season the meat and place it in the
roasting dish. Dot with butter or
margarine or brush with oil if
necessary.
For large lean cuts of meat (2-3 kg)
and fatty poultry add about 1/8 litre of
water to the dish.
^ When using a roasting bag, follow the
manufacturer's instructions.
– For poultry: 150 W.
These combination programmes are
not suitable for roasting sirloin joints or
fillet. The centre would be too well
cooked before the exterior is browned.
Roasting dishes
Please take into account the material of
your bakeware in your choice of oven
function:
– Fan plus U / Auto roast [:
Gourmet oven dishes, oven proof
ceramic dishes and glass dishes.
Make sure that the pot and lid have
heat-resistant handles.
– Microwave + Fan plus a /
Microwave + Auto roast L:
Dishes must be suitable for use in a
microwave oven and must not have
metal lids (see "Suitable containers
for microwave use").
92
Roasting on the rack
Add a little fat or oil to very lean meat or
place a few strips of streaky bacon on
the top.
Do not add too much liquid during
cooking as this will hinder the browning
process.
Roasting
Notes on the roasting chart
Shelf level ³
Temperature 6
– Fan plus U / Auto roast [:
Rack with meat on it on shelf level 1
As a general rule, select the lower

temperatures are used, the meat will
brown on the outside, but will not be
properly cooked through.
– Microwave + Fan plus a /
Microwave + Auto roast L:
Rack or glass tray with meat on it on

For cuts which weigh more than 3 kg,
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.
Tips
When roasting on the rack, set a
temperature approx. 20 °C lower than
for roasting in an oven dish.
Pre-heating
Pre-heating is required when roasting
beef sirloin joints and fillet.
Roasting duration +
The traditional British method for
calculating the roasting time 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. The roasting time can
also be determined by multiplying the
thickness of the roast [cm] with the time
per cm [min/cm], depending on the
type of meat:
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
10 minutes before the end of the
cooking time with slightly salted water.
Beef/venison: . . . . . . . . . 15–18 min/cm
Pork/veal/lamb: . . . . . . . . 12–15 min/cm

Pre-heating
Testing to see if cooked
Always pre-heat the grill for approx.
5 minutes with the door closed.
One way of finding out how well a piece
of meat has been cooked is to press
down on it with a spoon:
Do not set a microwave power level
during pre-heating.
Rare:
If the meat gives easily to
the pressure of the spoon,
it will still be red on the
inside.
Medium:
If there is some resistance,
the inside will be pink.
Shelf level ³
– Grill Y, MW + Grill b:
Use shelf level 2 or 3 depending on
the height of the food.
– Fan grill \,
MW + Fan grill M:
Use shelf level 1 or 2 depending on
the height of the food.
Well-done: If there is very little
resistance, it is cooked
through.
Check if the meat is cooked after the
shortest time quoted.
Grilling duration +
– Flat pieces of fish and meat usually
take 6–8 minutes per side.
It is best to grill food of a similar
thickness at the same time so that
the grilling duration for each item
does not vary too greatly.
– Thicker pieces need about 7–9
minutes per side.
Tip
If the surface of thicker cuts of meat is
cooked but the centre is still raw,
continue grilling at a lower temperature
setting or use a lower shelf level to
allow the food to cook through to the
centre.
– With rolled meat, allow approx.
10 minutes per cm diameter.

Preparing food for grilling
Grilling
Trim the meat. Do not season meat with
salt before grilling as this draws the
juices out.
^ Pre-heat the grill for approx. 5
minutes with the door closed.
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.

Microwave defrosting, reheating and cooking
Before defrosting, reheating and
cooking
After defrosting, reheating and
cooking
^ Place food (including frozen) in a
dish that is suitable for microwave
use, and cover it.
Allow the food to stand at room
temperature for a few minutes to enable
the heat to spread evenly throughout
the food.
^ Place the dish in the middle of the
glass tray on shelf level 1.
With Microwave combination
programmes
Only use heat-resistant containers
which are microwave safe.
A lid is not usually required.
Never use a lid with Microwave +
Auto roast L as the food will not
brown.
^ Place the glass tray on shelf level 2.
Place ready-meals in aluminium foil
dishes on the glass tray.
During the defrosting, reheating and
cooking process
^ Turn or stir the food several times.
Stir the food from the outside towards
the middle, as food heats more
quickly from the outside.
,After reheating food, especially
food for babies and small children,
stir the food or shake the container
and check that the temperature
does not pose any danger. Double
check after it has been left to stand.
Danger of burning.
,Danger of burning. Be careful
when removing dishes from the
appliance. Although heat is not
normally produced in the container
itself by the microwaves (apart from
stoneware), heat transfer from the
food to the container may be
considerable, making the container
itself hot.
Always ensure that food is
sufficiently cooked or reheated.
If in any doubt that the food has been
sufficiently reheated/cooked, place it
back in the appliance and reheat/cook
it for a little longer.
It is very important to make sure that
food which goes off easily, such as fish,
poultry and minced meat is cooked
sufficiently.
101
Microwave defrosting, reheating and cooking
Tips on reheating
,We do not recommend heating or
reheating food or drinks for babies or
young children in the microwave
oven. Any decision to do this is the
responsibility of the user, and should
only be done with the utmost care.
Pasteurised or sterilised cooked food
should be gently heated for 1/2 to 1
minute at 450 W, and tasted to make
sure it is not too hot for a baby's
palate before serving. When reheating
other food or drink, heat to a high
temperature and allow to cool to a
suitable heat for eating. For formula
milk follow the manufacturer's
instructions.
Do not cook or reheat food or liquids
in sealed containers, jars or bottles.
With baby bottles, the screw top and
teat must be removed.
Otherwise pressure will build up
which can cause the bottle or
container to explode, posing a
severe risk of injury.
When heating liquids, the boiling rod
provided should always be placed
in the container.
It helps liquids to heat evenly and
make sure the bubble are produced
at the right time.
Never reheat hard boiled eggs
using Microwave solo _. even
without the shell. The eggs can
explode.
102
Tips on cooking
Food with a thick skin or peel, such
as tomatoes, sausages, jacket
potatoes and aubergines, should be
pierced or cut in several places to
allow steam to escape and prevent
the food from bursting.
Eggs can only be cooked in their
shells using Microwave solo _ in a
specially designed egg-boiling
device available from specialist
shops. Eggs can burst, even after
they have been taken out of the
oven.
Eggs can be cooked without their
shells using microwave power only if
the yolk membrane has been
punctured several times first.
The pressure could otherwise cause
the egg yolk to explode.

Notes
Defrosting large
quantities of food at
once, e.g. 2 kg fish
The glass tray can be used on shelf level 1 for defrosting
food.
Reheating food
Always cover food when reheating it, except when
reheating meat/fish coated in breadcrumbs.
Cooking vegetables
Add a little water to vegetables which have been kept
stored.
Vegetable cooking times depend on the texture of the
vegetable. Fresh vegetables contain more water than
vegetables which have been stored and usually cook
more quickly.
Cooking frozen
ready-meals
Deep-frozen, ready-made meals can be defrosted and
then reheated or cooked in one process. Follow the
instructions on the packet.
Charts for defrosting, reheating and cooking food
The following notes apply to all charts:
– Take note of the recommended microwave power levels, durations and
standing times. These take the consistency, the quantity and the initial
temperature of the food into account.
– You are generally advised to select the middle duration.
– Place the food on the glass tray and use shelf level 1.

Cleaning and care
,Danger of burning. Make sure
the oven heating elements are
switched off and that the oven cavity
is cool.
,Danger of injury. Do not use a
steam cleaning appliance to clean
this appliance. The steam could
reach electrical components and
cause a short circuit.
Unsuitable cleaning agents
To avoid damaging the surfaces, do not
use:
– cleaning agents containing soda,
ammonia, acids or chlorides,
– cleaning agents containing
descaling agents on the oven front,
– abrasive cleaning agents, e.g.
powder cleaners and cream
cleaners,
– solvent-based cleaning agents,
Clean the oven interior, inside of the
door and door seal as soon as the
oven has cooled down. Waiting too
long can make cleaning
unnecessarily difficult and in some
cases impossible. In certain
circumstances, very heavy soiling
can even damage the appliance.
– stainless steel cleaning agents,
Check the door and door seal for
any sign of damage.
If any damage is noticed, the oven
should not be used again in
microwave mode until the fault has
been rectified by a service
technician.
– melamine eraser blocks,
– dishwasher cleaner,
– glass cleaning agents,
– cleaning agents for ceramic hobs,
– hard, abrasive brushes or sponges,
e. g. pot scourers, brushes or
sponges which have been previously
used with abrasive cleaning agents,
– sharp metal scrapers or tools,
– wire wool or metal scourers,
– stainless steel spiral pads,
– spot cleaning,
– oven cleaner*.
* these can, however, be used to
remove very heavy soiling from
PerfectClean treated surfaces.
116
Cleaning and care
Normal soiling
Soiling might become impossible to
remove if it is not dealt with.
Continued use of the oven without
regular cleaning will make it much
harder to keep clean.
Soiling is, therefore, best removed
after each use of the oven.
Only the glass tray and the boiling
rod are dishwasher proof.
Tips
– Soiling caused by spilt juices and
cake mixtures is best removed whilst
the oven is still warm. Exercise
caution and make sure the oven is
not too hot - danger of burning.
– The top heat/grill element can be
lowered to make it easier to clean the
oven.
Do not use too much water on the
cloth or sponge and do not let water
or any other liquid find its way into
any openings.
^ It is best to remove normal soiling immediately using a clean sponge and
a solution of hot water and
washing-up liquid or with a clean,
damp microfibre cloth.
^ After cleaning make sure all residual
cleaning agent is thoroughly
removed with clean water. This is
particularly important when cleaning
PerfectClean surfaces as cleaning
agent residues can impair the
non-stick properties.
^ After cleaning and rinsing, wipe the
surfaces dry using a soft cloth.
– To neutralise odours in the oven, put
a container of water with some lemon
juice in the oven and heat for a few
minutes.
117
Cleaning and care
Stubborn soiling
Spilt fruit and roasting juices may
cause lasting discolouration or matt
patches on enamelled surfaces.
This discolouration is permanent but
will not affect the efficiency of the
finish. Do not try to remove this
discolouration! Clean these
following the instructions given here.
^ Moisten stubborn soiling with a
solution of hot water and washing-up
liquid and leave for a few minutes to
take effect.
^ You can then also use the scouring
pad on the back of a washing-up
sponge to remove the soiling.
^ After cleaning, rinse thoroughly with
clean water, and dry with a soft cloth.
118
^ Very stubborn soiling on
PerfectClean treated enamel can be
cleaned using Miele oven cleaner. It
must be applied to surface when
cold. Follow instructions on the
packaging.
Non-Miele oven spray must only be
used in a cold oven and for no longer
than a maximum of 10 minutes.
^ You can then also use the scouring
pad on the back of a washing-up
sponge to remove the soiling.
^ After cleaning, remove all oven
cleaning agent residues thoroughly
with clean water, and dry with a soft
cloth.
Cleaning and care
Lowering the top heat/grill
element
If the oven interior roof is badly soiled,
the top heat/grill element can be
lowered to make cleaning easier.
Do not use force to lower it as this
can cause it to break.
,Danger of burning.
Make sure the oven heating
elements are switched off and cool.
^ Carefully lower the top heat/grill
element.
^ Clean the roof of the oven regularly
with a damp cloth or a dishwashing
sponge.
^ To lower the top heat/grill element,
the nut needs to be unscrewed.
^ After cleaning, raise the top heat/grill
element gently back up again. Refit
the nut and tighten to secure the
element back in position.

If food is cooked at a high power level it is possible that
the heat may not have reached the centre of the food.
Food may be hot on the outside but cool in the middle.
When reheating food with different densities, such as
plated meals, it is sensible to start with a low power
level and select a longer reheating duration.
