Caring for the environment
Disposal of the packing
material
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.
Recycling the packaging reduces the
use of raw materials in the
manufacturing process and also
reduces the amount of waste in landfill
sites.
Disposal of your old appliance
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.
Please dispose of it at your local
community waste collection/recycling
centre or contact your dealer for
advice. Ensure that it presents no
danger to children while being stored
for disposal.

Description of the functions
Control panel
The water container and the condensate container are
located behind the control panel. The ? sensor is used for
opening and closing the control panel.
The panel is fitted with a device which will automatically stop
it moving if it meets an obstruction whilst opening or closing.
Do not touch the handle or the appliance door whilst the
panel is opening or closing!
Water container
The maximum water level is 1.4 litres, the minimum 1.0 litre.
These levels are indicated on the container, inside it and on
the outside. Do not exceed the maximum level.
The amount of water required for cooking will depend on the
moisture level set as well as the type of food and its natural
water content. Opening the door during cooking will increase
the amount used.
Fill the water container to the maximum level before each use.
Depending on the food being cooked you may need to refill
the water container after 90 minutes. The appliance will
advise you when there is insufficient water in the container.
Condensate container
Condensate that collects in the appliance from cooking is
pumped into the condensate container. The container has a
maximum capacity of 1.4 litres.
Grease filter
Fit the grease filter in the back wall for all roasting
programmes.
It should be removed when using steam programmes.
It must also be removed when baking, as otherwise results
can be uneven (Exception: fit the grease filter in the back wall
when baking open deep fresh fruit flans, e.g. plum or damson
or pizza with lots of topping).
22
Description of the functions
Food probe
The food probe measures the core temperature in the food,
enabling the temperature during the cooking process to be
monitored simply and accurately.
Temperature / Core temperature
Some functions have recommended temperatures and where
appropriate a pre-set core temperature for the food probe.
You can alter the recommended temperature within a given
range (see "Functions") for an individual cooking process or
permanently (see "Settings"). You can alter the core
temperature for the food probe within a given range for an
individual cooking process or a cooking stage.
Cooking duration (time)
Depending on the function, you can set a cooking duration of
between 1 minute and 6, 10 or 12 hours.
The duration of the Automatic, Maintenance and Menu
cooking programmes is set at the factory and cannot be
altered.
On functions and programmes that use steam alone, the
cooking duration does not start to count down until the set
temperature has been reached. It begins immediately with all
other functions and programmes.
Moisture
The Combination mode and Reheat functions use a
combination of oven heat and moisture. You can alter the
moisture/humidity level within a given range for an individual
cooking programme or a cooking stage.
Depending on the moisture setting for the programme, either
moisture or fresh air is injected into the oven. If the moisture
level is set to 0%, the maximum amount of air will be injected
and no moisture. If the moisture level is set to 100%, air will
not be injected into the oven and the maximum amount of
moisture will be injected.
23
Description of the functions
The appliance calculates the amount of moisture in the oven.
The amount of moisture in the food will affect the amount of
moisture the oven needs.
Some food gives off moisture during the cooking process.
This moisture from the food also controls the amount of
moisture needed. If the required amount of moisture is very
low and the food already contains a lot of water the steam
generator may not be activated at all.
Noises
You will hear a humming sound when the appliance is
switched on, during operation and after it has been switched
off. This sound does not indicate a malfunction or fault with
the appliance. It occurs when water is pumped in or out of
the appliance.
You will also hear the fan when the appliance is in use.
24
Description of the functions
Heating-up phase
While the appliance is heating up to the temperature which
has been set, the display will show "Heating-up phase" and
the temperature in the cooking compartment as it rises in all
programmes except for Automatic ones, Menu cooking,
Reheat and Maintenance.
Steam cooking
When cooking with steam, the duration of the heating-up
phase will depend on the quantity and the temperature of the
food. In general the heating-up phase will last for approx. 7
minutes. The duration will be longer if you are cooking
refrigerated or frozen food.
Steam reduction
with steam programmes
The steam reduction function will switch on automatically at
the end of a cooking programme which uses a temperature of
over 70 °C. This reduces the amount of steam which escapes
when the door is opened. "Steam reduction" will appear in the
display in addition to "Process finished".
This function can be switched off if you wish (see "Settings").
Keeping warm
with steam programmes
If you wish to use this function you will need to alter the
default setting (see "Settings").
If the steam oven is not switched off at the end of a cooking
programme, the keeping warm function will activate
automatically. The food will be kept at a temperature of 70 °C
for a maximum of 15 minutes.
Please note that delicate food, especially fish, can continue
cooking whilst being kept warm.
25
Description of the functions
Oven interior lighting
For energy saving reasons, the oven compartment lighting
has been set at the factory to go out after the programme has
begun.
If you want it to stay on all the time the oven is on you will
need to alter the default setting (see "Settings").
If the door is left open at the end of a cooking programme the
oven lighting will switch off automatically after 5 minutes.
The lighting radiates heat. It will switch itself off automatically
when you are cooking with a temperature below 50 °C.
Touching the I sensor switches the lighting on for
15 seconds.
Please refer to "Steam cooking" and "Special applications"
for more information and tips on how to use your steam
oven.

correct interval. The harder the water, the more often it will
need to be descaled.
^ Check the hardness of your local water supply and adjust
the water hardness as necessary (see "Settings").
29
Using for the first time
Setting the correct boiling point for water
Before cooking food for the first time, you must set the boiling
point for water, as this varies depending on the altitude the
appliance is located at. This procedure also flushes out the
waterways.
This process must be carried out to ensure efficient
functioning of your appliance.
^ Run the appliance using steam cooking (100 °C) for
15 minutes. Proceed as described in "Operating
principles".
If you move house, the appliance will need to be re-set for
the new altitude if this differs from the old one by 300 m or
more. To do this, descale the appliance (see "Cleaning and
care / Descaling").
Heating up the appliance
To remove the grease from the ring heating element, heat the
appliance up with nothing in it at 200 °C using the Fan plus
function for 30 minutes. Proceed as described in "Operation".
There will be a slight smell the first time the heating element is
heated up.
The smell and any vapours will dissipate after a short time,
and do not indicate a faulty connection or appliance. It is
important to ensure that the room is well ventilated during this
operation.

General notes
This section contains general information. You will find more
detailed information about particular foods and how to cook
them in the other sections.
Steam cooking
The advantages of cooking with steam
Almost all vitamins and minerals are retained as the food is
not immersed in water.
Cooking with steam also retains the true taste of the food
better than conventional cooking. We therefore recommend
seasoning the food after it has been cooked. Food also keeps
its fresh, original colour.
Cooking containers
This appliance is supplied with stainless steel cooking
containers. Other containers, in a variety of sizes, both
perforated and solid, are available as optional extras (please
refer to "Optional accessories"). This enables you to choose
the most suitable container for the food you are preparing.
When using the Steam cooking function use perforated
containers where possible. These enable steam to reach food
from all sides and help it cook evenly.
Your own containers
You can also use your own containers. However, please note
the following:
– The container must be suitable for using in an oven and
must be steam resistant. Plastic containers can only be
used for steam cooking if the manufacturer has stated that
they are suitable for such use.
– Thick sided containers are not very suitable for using with
steam. They do not conduct heat well and as a result
cooking durations will be considerably longer than those
given in the charts.
49
General notes
– Place the cooking containers on the rack or on a suitable
tray, and not on the oven floor.
– Ensure that there is a gap between the upper rim of the
container and the top of the cooking compartment to allow
sufficient steam into the container.
Universal tray / Combi rack
If you are using the universal tray with the rack on top, e.g. for
grilling, insert the tray between the rails of the side runners
and the rack will automatically slide in above them.
Shelf level
You can select any shelf level when cooking with steam. You
can also cook on several levels at the same time. This will not
alter the cooking duration.
When using more than one deep container at the same time
for steam cooking it is best to offset them on their runners and
to leave at least one level free in between them.
Temperature
A maximum temperature of 100 °C is reached when steam
cooking is taking place. Most types of food will cook at this
temperature. Some more delicate types of food, such as soft
fruit, must be cooked at lower temperatures as otherwise they
will burst. More information is given in the relevant section.
Combination with a food warming drawer
When the warming drawer is in use the oven cavity in the
steam oven can get up to 40 °C. If, in this case, you set a
temperature of 40 °C, no steam will be produced because the
oven cavity is too warm.
Non-tip safety notches
The universal tray and combi rack have non-tip safety
notches in the middle which prevent them being pulled right
out when they only need to be partially pulled out. The tray
and rack can then only be taken out of the oven by raising
them upwards and then pulling them out.
50
General notes
Cooking duration
In general, the cooking durations for cooking with steam are
the same as for cooking food in a saucepan. More
information about any factors which may affect the cooking
duration is given in the relevant sections.
The quantity of food does not affect the cooking duration. 1
kg of potatoes will take the same time to cook as 500 g.
The durations given in the charts are guidelines only. We
recommend selecting the shorter cooking duration quoted to
start with. If food is not cooked sufficiently after the shorter
time it can be put back in the oven and cooked for longer.
Cooking with liquid
When cooking with liquid only fill the cooking container 2/3 full
to prevent the liquid spilling when the cooking container is
removed from the oven.
Your own recipes
Food and recipes which are prepared in pot or a pan can
also be cooked using steam. The cooking durations will be
the same. Please note that food will not be browned when
cooking with steam.
51
Steam cooking
Vegetables
Fresh
Prepare fresh vegetables in the usual way, i.e. wash, clean
and cut them up.
Frozen
Frozen vegetables do not need to be defrosted beforehand,
unless they have been frozen together in a block.
Frozen and fresh vegetables which take the same length of
time to cook can be cooked together.
Break up vegetables that have frozen together in a lump and
follow instructions on the packaging regarding cooking
duration.
Cooking containers
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. For an even result, it is best
to use a shallow container for these types of food, and only fill
it about 3 - 5 cm deep. When cooking large quantities divide
the food between 2 or 3 shallow containers rather than using
one deep one.
Different types of vegetables which take the same length of
time to cook can be cooked together.
Use solid containers for vegetables which are cooked in
liquid.
Shelf level
To avoid any colour transfer when cooking vegetables with a
distinctive colour (e.g beetroot) in a perforated container, do
not place other food underneath the perforated container.
Duration
As with conventional methods, when cooking vegetables with
steam, the cooking duration will depend on the size and also
whether you want the vegetables to be al dente or soft/well
done. Example:
firm potatoes, cut into quarters = approx. 18 minutes
firm potatoes, cut in half = approx. 22 minutes
Brussels sprouts, large, al dente = approx. 12 minutes
Brussels sprouts, small, soft = approx. 12 minutes

Steam cooking
Meat
Fresh
Prepare the meat in the usual way.
Frozen
Meat should be thoroughly defrosted before cooking in the
steam oven (see "Defrost").
Preparation
For meat which needs to be seared before being cooked,
e.g. for a stew, sear the meat in a pan on the hob first.
Duration
The cooking duration depends on the thickness and the
texture of the meat, and not on the weight. The thicker the
piece of meat, the longer the cooking duration. A piece of
meat weighing 500 g which is 10 cm thick will take longer to
cook than a piece of meat weighing 500 g which is 5 cm
thick.
Tips
Use a perforated container to retain the juices when cooking
meat, such as prime beef topside. Place a solid container or
the universal tray underneath to catch the juices.
You can use these to make a gravy or freeze them for later
use.
Boiling fowl, back or top rib and meat bones can be used to
make stock. Place the meat together with some mixed
vegetables in a solid cooking container and add cold water
and cook. The longer the cooking duration, the stronger the
stock.

Fish
Fresh
Prepare fresh fish in the usual way, i.e. clean, gut and fillet.
Frozen
Defrost frozen fish before cooking (see "Defrosting").
Preparation
Add some lemon or lime juice to fish before cooking. The
citric acid helps the flesh stay firm.
It is not necessary to season fish with salt when cooking with
steam as this method retains the minerals which give the fish
its unique flavour.
Cooking containers
Grease perforated containers. Place the universal tray on the
lowest shelf level.
Shelf level
When cooking fish in a perforated container at the same time
as cooking other types of food in other containers, place the
container with the fish directly above the universal tray to
catch any liquid and so avoid any transfer of tastes to other
food.
Temperature
85 °C – 90 °C
For gently cooking delicate types of fish, such as sole.
100 °C
For cooking firmer types of fish, e.g. cod and salmon.
Also for cooking fish in sauce or stock.
59
Steam cooking
Duration
The cooking duration depends on the thickness and the
texture of the fish, and not on the weight. The thicker the fish,
the longer the cooking duration. A 3 cm thick piece of fish
weighing 500 g will take longer to cook than a 2 cm thick
piece of fish weighing 500 g.
The longer fish cooks, the firmer its flesh will become. Use the
cooking durations given in the chart.
If you find that the fish is not cooked sufficiently only cook it
for a few minutes more.
When cooking fish in sauce or stock, we recommend that you
increase the cooking duration quoted by a few minutes.
Tips
Adding herbs and spices, such as dill, will help bring out the
full flavour of the fish.
Cook large fish in the swimming position. To help maintain the
shape of the fish, place a small cup or similar upside down in
the cooking container, and arrange the fish bellyside down
over the cup.
You can use any fish scraps, e.g. fish heads, bones, tails etc
to make a fish stock. Place the fish scraps together with
some mixed vegetables in a solid cooking container and add
cold water. Cook at 100 °C for 60 to 90 minutes. The longer
the cooking duration, the stronger the stock.
Blue fish is fish which is cooked in water and vinegar. It is
important not to damage the skin of the fish. This method is
suitable for cooking carp, trout, tench, eel and salmon.
(Follow recipe instructions for the ratio of water to vinegar).

Dry pasta swells when it is cooked and needs to be cooked
in liquid. The liquid must cover the pasta. Using hot liquid
gives better results.
Increase the cooking time stated by the manufacturer by
approx. 1/3.
Fresh
Fresh pasta, such as you can buy from the supermarket
chilled counter, does not need to absorb water. Cook fresh
pasta in a perforated container.
Separate any pieces of pasta which have stuck together and
spread them out in the cooking container.

Pulses
- Dried Soak pulses for at least 10 hours in cold water before
cooking. Soaking makes the pulses more digestible and
shortens the cooking duration required.
Exception: Lentils do not need to be soaked before cooking.
Soaked pulses must be covered with liquid during cooking.
With unsoaked pulses a specific ratio of pulses : water is
required.

Hen's eggs
Use a perforated container to boil eggs in the steam oven.
The eggs do not need to be pierced before cooking as they
are gradually warmed during the heating up phase and so do
not burst when they are cooked with steam.
When using a solid container for make egg dishes such as
scrambled eggs, remember to grease it first.

Steam cooking
Menu cooking (cooking whole meals) - manually
Before cooking meals with the Menu cooking function
switch off the steam reduction system (see "Settings").
You can use the steam oven to cook a whole meal containing
types of food which have different cooking durations, e.g. fish
fillet with rice and broccoli. Each dish is placed in the oven at
different times so that they are all ready at the same time.
Shelf level
When cooking fish or food with a distinctive colour (e.g.
beetroot) in a perforated container, place the perforated
container directly above the condensate tray / universal tray
to avoid any transfer of flavour or colour to other food and to
prevent liquid dripping onto food below it.
Temperature
Whole meals should be cooked at a temperature of 100 °C as
this is the temperature required to cook the majority of foods.
Do not cook a whole meal at the lowest temperature when
different temperatures are required for different types of food,
e.g. 85 °C for seabream and 100 °C for potatoes.
If the recommended cooking temperature for the food is
85 °C for example, try cooking it at 100 °C and testing the
result. Some delicate types of fish with a soft structure, e.g.
sole and plaice will become very firm when cooked at 100 °C.
Duration
If you are increasing the recommended temperature, shorten
the cooking duration by approx. 1/3.

Special applications
Reheat
The steam oven is very effective at reheating food gently,
without drying it out or cooking it further. The food will reheat
evenly and does not need to be stirred during the reheating
process.
You can reheat individual dishes or plated meals which have
been prepared previously (e.g. meat, vegetables and
potatoes).
Suitable containers
Small quantities can be reheated on a plate, larger quantities
should be placed in a cooking container.
Duration
10-15 minutes are usually sufficient for one plate of food.
More than one plate will need a little longer.
If you are reheating several plated meals one after the other,
the reheating time can be reduced by around 5 minutes for
the second and subsequent plates as the oven will still be
hot.
Moisture
The more moist the food, the less moisture needs to be
added.
Tips
Food does not need to be covered before it is reheated.
Do not reheat large items, such as a whole joint of roast meat.
Divide it into portions and reheat these as plated meals.
Compact items, such as stuffed peppers or roulades, should
be cut in half.
Please note that breaded items, such as schnitzel, will not
retain their crispness when they are reheated.
Reheat sauces separately, except for dishes such as stews
and casseroles where the sauce is part of the dish.

Special applications
Defrost
It is much quicker to defrost items in the steam oven than at
room temperature.
Temperature
60 °C is the best temperature for defrosting.
Exception: 50 °C for minced meat and game
Before and after defrosting
Remove all packaging before defrosting. Exceptions:
Leave bread, biscuits and cakes in their packaging as
otherwise they will absorb moisture and become soft.
Allow defrosted food to stand at room temperature after
removing it from the oven. The standing time is necessary to
allow the even distribution of heat.
Cooking containers
Use a perforated container with the universal tray underneath
it when defrosting food which will drip, such as poultry. This
way food will not be lying in defrosted liquid.
,It is particularly important to observe food hygiene
rules when defrosting poultry. Do not use the liquid from
defrosted poultry. Pour it away and wash the container,
the sink and your hands. Danger of salmonella poisoning.
Food which does not drip can be defrosted in a solid
container.
76
Special applications
Tips
Fish does not need to be fully defrosted before cooking.
Defrost so that the surface is sufficiently thawed to take herbs
and seasoning. Depending on the thickness of the fish, 2 - 5
minutes should be enough.
When defrosting food which has frozen together, e.g. berries,
chops, fish fillets etc. separate it about half-way through the
defrosting time.
Do not refreeze food once it has thawed.
Defrost frozen pre-cooked meals according to the
manufacturer's instructions.

Special applications
Bottling
Vegetables and fruit
Only use unblemished, fresh produce which is in good
condition for bottling.
Glass jars
Use clean jars and accessories and check them for any
defects. Glass jars with twist off lids or glass lids with a
rubber seal are suitable.
Make sure that all the jars are the same size so that bottling is
carried out evenly.
After you have filled the jars with the bottled produce, clean
the glass rims with a clean cloth and hot water and then seal
the jars.
Fruit
Sort fruit carefully, rinse it briefly but thoroughly and allow it to
drain. Take great care when cleaning soft fruit as it is very
delicate and squashes easily.
Remove any peel, stalks, cores or stones.
Cut up large fruit. For example, cut apples into slices.
If you are bottling fruit with stones (e.g. plums, apricots)
without removing the stones, pierce the fruit several times
with a fork or wooden skewers as otherwise it will burst.
Vegetables
Rinse, clean and cut up vegetables.
Green vegetables should be blanched before bottling to help
them retain their colour (see "Blanching").
Fill volume
Fill the glass jars with produce up to a maximum of 3 cm
below the rim. Do not pack it down as this will damage the
cell walls of the produce. Tap the jar gently onto a cloth to
help distribute the contents evenly.
80
Special applications
Fill the jars with liquid. The produce must be completely
covered.
Use a sugar solution for fruit and a salt or vinegar solution for
vegetables.
Tips
Make use of residual heat by leaving the jars in the oven for
30 minutes after it has switched off.
Then cover the jars with a cloth and allow to cool for approx.
24 hours.
Procedure
^ Place the jars in a perforated container (they should all be
the same size). Ensure that they do not touch one another.
^ Place the container on the lowest shelf level.

Special applications
Bottling cakes
Creamed, sponge and yeast dough mixtures are all suitable
for bottling. Cakes will keep for approx. 6 months.
Cakes made with fresh fruit are not suitable for long term
storage, and must be consumed within 2 days of being
made.
Glass jars
Only use clean jars and accessories which are in perfect
condition. Jars should be narrower at the bottom than the top.
0.25 litre jars are the most suitable for bottling cakes.
Jars must have a glass lid with metal spring clamp to seal
them.
Make sure that all the jars are the same size so that bottling is
carried out evenly.
Procedure
^ Grease the inside of the jars with butter up to 1 cm below
the rim.
^ Sprinkle inside the jars with fine breadcrumbs.
^ Fill the jars 1/2 to 2/3 full with cake mixture (depending on
recipe). Make sure the rim stays clean.
^ Place the rack on shelf level 2.
^ Place the jars on the rack (all the same size) without lids
on. Ensure that they do not touch one another.
^ Close the jars immediately after bottling by clamping the
glass lid down securely. Do not let the cakes cool down.
If the mixture has risen above the rim, it can be pushed
back down into the jar with the glass lid.

Special applications
Extracting juice with steam
You can use the steam oven to extract juices from soft fruit,
such as berries and cherries.
It is best to use overripe fruit, as the riper the fruit the greater
the quantity of juice produced. Very ripe fruit will also
produce a more intense flavour.
Preparation
Sort and clean the fruit. Cut out any blemishes.
Remove the stalks from grapes and morello cherries as these
are bitter. The stalks do not need to be removed from
raspberries etc.
Tips
Try experimenting with mild and tart fruit.
Adding sugar will increase the quantity of juice produced and
improve the flavour. Sprinkle the fruit with sugar and leave to
absorb for a few hours before juicing. For 1 kg of sweet fruit
add 50 –100 g of sugar, and for 1 kg of tart fruit add
100–150 g of sugar.
If you wish to bottle the juice rather than consume it straight
away, pour it whilst hot into hot, sterilised bottles, and then
seal immediately with sterilised tops.
Procedure
^ Put the prepared fruit (cleaned, washed, chopped etc.) into
a perforated cooking container.
^ Place a solid container or the universal tray underneath to
catch the juice.

Menu cooking (cooking whole meals)
You can cook up to three different types of food, e. g. fish
with a side dish and vegetables.
The food can be selected in any order you like. The
appliance will automatically sort them out in order of cooking
duration required. The one with the longest duration goes in
the oven first.
^ Switch the appliance on s.
^ Fill the water container with fresh tap water and push it into
the appliance.
^ Then place the universal tray or the condensate tray in the
appliance.
^ Select "Special applications > Menu cooking".
^ Select the food you want.
Depending on the type of food selected, you will be asked
about the size and how well done you want it cooked.
^ Select or enter the values required and then confirm your
selection with "Continue".
^ Select "Add food".
^ Select the next food you want and proceed in the same
way as with the first one.
^ Repeat for the third type of food.
After you have confirmed "Start menu cooking", the display
will tell you which food to put in the oven.
At the end of the heating-up phase, the display will show
when the next food type is to be placed in the oven. When the
time for the next food type to be placed in the oven is
reached, the display will show the food type and the shelf
runner. This process will be repeated for the third food type.
You can still cook food types not listed in the display
together. See "Menu cooking - manually" for details on how
to do this.

Special applications
Making yoghurt
To make yoghurt, you will need either fresh live yoghurt or
yoghurt culture, obtainable from health food shops.
Use natural yoghurt with live culture and without additives.
Heat-treated yoghurt is not suitable.
The yoghurt must be fresh (short storage time)
You can use either unchilled long-life or fresh milk. Long-life
milk can be used without any further treatment. Fresh milk
must first be heated to 90 °C and then cooled down to 35 °C.
Do not boil it. Fresh milk will give a better set than long-life
milk.
The yoghurt and milk should have the same percentage fat.
Do not move or shake the jars whilst the yoghurt is thickening.
Immediately after preparation place the yoghurt in the fridge
to cool down.
How well home prepared yoghurt sets will depend on the
consistency, fat content and the cultures used in the starter
yogurt. Not all yoghurts are suitable for use as starter yoghurt.
Possible reasons for unsatisfactory results
Yoghurt has not set:
Incorrect storage of starter yoghurt, too much time out of the
refrigerator, e.g. in transportation, damaged packaging, milk
not sufficiently heated.
Liquid has separated:
The jars were moved, yoghurt was not cooled down quickly
enough.
Yoghurt is gritty:
Milk was overheated or in poor condition, milk and starter
yoghurt not evenly stirred.
88
Special applications
Tip
When using yoghurt enzyme, yoghurt can be made from a
milk / cream mixture. Mix 3/4 litre milk with 1/4 litre cream.

Disinfect items
The steam oven can be used to disinfect baby bottles and
other containers so that at the end of the programme they are
as germ free as they would have been had they been boiled.
Check beforehand that all parts, teats etc. are declared by
the manufacturer to be heat resistant to 100 °C and also that
they can withstand hot steam.
Dismantle, clean and thoroughly rinse baby bottles. All parts
of the bottles must be completely dry before they are
reassembled to keep them germ free.
Procedure
^ Place the individual parts in a perforated container (on their
sides or with the opening facing downwards) ensuring that
they do not touch one another to allow hot steam to reach
them from all sides.

Purée the fruit as otherwise the preserve will not set.
Add jam sugar to the fruit (according to packet instructions)
and stir well.
For sweet fruit and berries you should also add some citric
acid.

Sabbath programme
This programme lasts for 72 hours for religious observance.
It uses "Conventional heat" and cannot be altered. Once set
the time of day will not be visible in the display. The oven light
will also not come on, even when the door is opened. The
oven will only start heating up after opening and closing the
door.
The Sabbath programme cannot be started if a minute
minder time is running.
^ Select "Special applications".
^ Select "Sabbath programme".
^ Select the temperature required.
^ Open the door.
^ Place the food in the oven.

can it be saved under User programmes. The programme
can only be stopped by switching the appliance off.
99
Food probe
How it works
The tip of the probe is pushed into the centre of the meat
where it measures the core temperature continuously.
The core temperature set will depend on how well cooked
you want your meat to be and on the type of meat. The
temperature can be set between 30 and 99 °C.
The cooking duration will depend on the temperature in the
oven compartment and the thickness of the meat. The higher
the temperature and the thinner the meat, the quicker the set
core temperature will be reached.
The cooking process will finish automatically when the core
temperature in the meat reaches the value set for the food
probe.
Exception: In Combination mode another cooking stage, e.g.
browning the meat may be required.
Remove the food probe from the socket after use. Take
care as it could still be hot.
Never leave it in the appliance when not in use. It could
get damaged by the heat produced in another function.
Keep it in a safe place, in a drawer, for example.
100
Food probe
When to use it
The food probe can be used with the following functions:
- Combination mode - Fan plus,
- Combination mode - Conventional heat
- Fan plus
- Fan grill
- Conventional heat
- Intensive bake
- Cake plus
- Steam cooking
- Reheat
Important notes about using the food probe
The metal tip of the food probe must be fully inserted into the
centre of the food.
Do not let the metal tip touch any bones or insert it into a
particularly fatty area of the meat. If fat or bone come into
contact with the probe, this can lead to the oven being
switched off too early.
If the meat is very heavily marbled with fat, select the highest
core temperature given in the chart.
When using roasting bags, insert the probe through the bag
into the centre of the meat. You can also place the meat, with
the food probe inserted, inside the bag. Follow the roasting
bag manufacturer's instructions.
If wrapping meat in aluminium foil, the food probe must be
inserted through the foil to the centre of the meat.
101
Food probe
Procedure
^ Prepare the meat in the usual way.
^ Insert the metal tip of the food probe fully into the food.
^ Place the food in the oven.
^ Open the connection socket for the food probe and insert
the food probe into the socket as far as it will go.
^ Select the function you want.
^ Alter the recommended and / or core temperature if
necessary.
102

Tips
If you are cooking several pieces of meat together, insert the
food probe in the largest piece of meat.
If the food is not cooked sufficiently when the core
temperature is reached, insert the food probe into another
place and repeat the programme.

Roasting
We recommend using Combination mode - Fan plus or
Combination mode - Conventional heat for roasting.
Please ensure that the grease filter is fitted in the oven.
Frozen meat must be defrosted before it is cooked. Never
cook from frozen.
You do not need to preheat the oven for roasting. The meat is
placed in a cold oven.
Remove any membranes and sinews before roasting. Season
to taste and dot with butter or, in the case of game, bard with
rashers of streaky bacon. Game can be marinated overnight,
e.g. in buttermilk, to tenderise it.
If you are cooking several pieces of meat together, select
pieces that are similar in size.
Allow a standing time of approx. 10 minutes before carving
meat to allow the meat juices to be evenly distributed.
104
Roasting
Combination mode
The lower the temperature in the oven, the longer the cooking
duration and the more tender the result.
Roast meat on the rack above the universal tray. The meat
juices will collect in the tray and can then be used to make a
gravy or sauce.
The addition of steam prevents the surface of lean meat from
drying out.
Excellent results can be achieved when using 5 to 6 cooking
stages for the cooking process.
Use cooking stage 1 to pre-heat the oven together with the
rack above the universal tray.
Brown the meat in cooking stage 2.
In cooking stage 3, adjust the temperature so that it is
suitable for cooking the meat so that it is tender.
Then use cooking stage 4 to cook the meat until tender.
Finally use cooking stage 5 to achieve the required cooking
level, e.g. rare, medium, well done.
When roasting fatty meat with crackling, use a high
temperature in cooking stage 1 to render the fat and brown
the crackling. Reduce the temperature and increase the
moisture in cooking stage 2. In cooking stage 3 increase the
temperature for crispy crackling.
For braised meats, pre-heat the oven with the rack above the
universal tray in cooking stage 1.
Brown the meat in cooking stage 2.
Use cooking stage 3 to braise the meat at a temperature of
100 °C with 84 % moisture.
For poultry, use a high temperature and a high moisture level
in cooking stage 1 to render the fat.
Increase the temperature in cooking stage 2.
Brown the poultry in cooking stage 3.
Please refer to the roasting chart which follows for details on
the settings.

Baking
Fan plus
For baking on several levels
When using Fan plus, reduce the temperatures given for
Conventional heat by about 20°C.
Conventional heat
For baking traditional recipes, e.g. rich fruit cake and making
soufflés.
Only bake on one level at a time.
Bake tray bakes on shelf level 3 and cakes in tins on shelf
level 2.
If using an older recipe or cookbook, set the oven
temperature for Conventional heat 10 °C lower than that
recommended. This will not change cooking durations.
Top heat
Ideal for browning the topping on a dish.
Bottom heat
Use this setting towards the end of baking, to brown the base
of a cake, quiche or pizza.
Intensive bake
For baking cakes with a moist topping , e.g. cheese cake,
fresh fruit cakes, quiche and flans.
Also suitable for items such as pizza without the need to
pre-bake the base.
Use the bottom shelf level.
Cake plus
For creamed mixtures, choux pastry (e.g. eclairs) and frozen
pretzels.
113
Baking
Combination mode
The gleaming finish on bread, rolls and puff pastry is
achieved by adding steam (maximum moisture, low
temperature) in cooking stage 1. Browning is achieved using
a high moisture level and a high temperature. The drying out
phase takes place with low moisture and a high temperature.
Bake part-baked rolls with 90 % moisture at the temperature
given by the manufacturer on the packaging.
114
Baking
Baking tips
Cakes, pizzas and chips etc. should be cooked until golden,
not dark brown.
Remove the grease filter from the back wall. Otherwise results
can be uneven. (Exception: Flans with a deep, fresh fruit
filling, e.g. plums or damsons, pizza with lots of topping).
Bakeware
Dark-coloured tins are best for baking.
These conduct the heat more swiftly to the mixture. Shiny
metal tins reflect heat so cakes take longer to cook and do
not brown evenly.
Bake cakes in rectangular tins with the longer side across the
width of the oven for optimum heat distribution and even
results.
Universal tray
Because of its PerfectClean non-stick surface the universal
tray does not need to be greased or lined with baking
parchment for baking.
Baking parchment
Baking parchment should be used with:
– anything with a high salt content (e.g. pretzels, bread
sticks), because sodium can damage the PerfectClean
surface,
– meringues or sponges with a high egg-white content,
because they are more likely to stick.
– puff pastry
115
Baking
Frozen food
When baking deep frozen products such as chips,
croquettes, cakes, pizza and baguettes, use the lowest
temperature quoted on the manufacturer's packaging.
Cook large frozen items e.g. cakes, pizzas and baguettes on
baking parchment on the rack. Baking large frozen items on
the baking tray or the universal tray can cause the metal to
distort to such an extent that the tray cannot be taken out of
the oven.
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 turn several times during cooking.
Shelf level
Bake on a maximum of two levels at the same time.
When baking on two levels at the same time, follow the
instructions given in "Automatic programmes".
Notes about the chart
Select the lowest temperature in the chart.
Do not set a temperature higher than that recommended.
Increasing the temperature may reduce the baking duration,
but will lead to uneven browning, and unsatisfactory cooking
results.
Check if the food is cooked at the end of the shortest duration
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.

Grilling
The appliance door must remain shut during grilling, as
otherwise the controls will get hot. Danger of burning.
Do not use the food probe when using Full grill, Economy
grill or Combination mode - Grill.
Use:
– Full grill / Economy grill for thin cuts and for browning
baked dishes.
– Fan grill for thicker items, e.g. rolled meat, poultry pieces.
Use the rack above the universal tray for grilling.
Grill thick items, e.g. half a chicken, in the middle and thin
items, e.g. steak, on the top shelf level.
The grill does not need to be pre-heated. Place the food to be
grilled into a cold oven.
Turn food 2/3 of the way through cooking, unless otherwise
advised in the chart.
Procedure
^ Place the rack on top of universal tray.
^ Place the food on the rack.
^ Place the food under the grill and shut the door.
^ Select the required oven function and the temperature.
120
Grilling
Tips
Marinate or add a little oil if necessary to lean meat. Do not
use other types of fat as they can burn and cause smoke.
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).
– If there is great resistance, it is thoroughly cooked through
("well done").

Automatic programmes
Your appliance has a wide range of Automatic programmes.
Each one contains the relevant cooking function, temperature
and duration. All you have to do is select the Automatic
programme you want and select how well done you want the
food cooked.
The degree of doneness and browning levels are shown in a
bar graph with seven segments. The factory default is always
the middle setting. It will be highlighted. To change the
setting simply move the highlighting to the left or the right.
With some roasting programmes you can also set the
moisture level: meat cooked at a low temperature over a long
period will be tender and succulent.
The weight entry in the Automatic programmes refers to the
weight per piece. For example, you can cook just one piece
of salmon weighing 250 g or 10 pieces of salmon weighing
250 g at the same time.
In some programmes you will be prompted about which shelf
level to use and when to add food to the oven. Follow and
confirm these instructions.
The oven interior needs to be at room temperature before
starting an Automatic programme.
When placing food in an already hot steam oven, be very
careful when opening the door. Hot steam can escape. Step
back from the steam oven and wait until the steam has
dissipated.
Avoid contact with hot steam, and do not touch the hot oven
interior walls. Danger of burning and scalding.
Please refer to the cook book for information on suitable
baking containers.
You can delay the start by selecting the "Start at" or the
"Ready at" option.
122

Cleaning and care
,Do not use a steam cleaning appliance to clean this
appliance. The steam could reach the electrical
components and cause a short circuit.
Disconnect the appliance from the electricity supply and
allow it to cool down to a safe temperature before cleaning.
The appliance and accessories should be cleaned and dried
thoroughly after each use.
Make sure the appliance is completely dry before closing the
door.
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. Leave the
door open afterwards.
Do not use commercial cleaning agents. Only use agents
designed for domestic use.
Do not use cleaning agents or washing-up liquids
containing aliphatic hydrocarbons as these could cause
the seals to swell.
128
Cleaning and care
Appliance front
Remove any soiling immediately.
If this is not done, it might become impossible to remove
and could cause the surface to alter or discolour.
Clean the front with a clean sponge and a solution of hot
water and washing-up liquid. After cleaning dry with a soft
cloth.
A clean, damp microfibre cloth without cleaning agent can
also be used.
All surfaces are susceptible to scratching. Scratches on
glass surfaces could even cause a breakage.
Contact with unsuitable cleaning agents can alter or
discolour the surfaces.
To avoid damaging the surfaces of your appliance, do not
use:
– cleaning agents containing soda, alkalines, ammonia,
acids or chlorides,
– cleaning agents containing descaling agents,
– abrasive cleaning agents, e.g. powder cleaners and cream
cleaners,
– solvent-based cleaning agents,
– stainless steel cleaning agents,
– dishwasher cleaner,
– oven sprays,
– glass cleaning agents,
– hard, abrasive sponges and brushes, e.g. pot scourers,
– melamine eraser blocks,
– sharp metal scrapers.
129
Cleaning and care
Accessories
Universal tray, Combi rack, shelf runners
These accessories have been treated with PerfectClean
enamel. Please refer to the section on "PerfectClean" for more
information.
Do not clean these accessories in the dishwasher.
Please remove
– light soiling with a sponge and a solution of washing-up
liquid and hot water.
– heavier soiling with a non-scouring washing-up sponge
and a solution of washing-up liquid and hot water. If
necessary, the pad on the reverse of the sponge can be
used.
After cleaning, rinse thoroughly with clean water, and dry with
a soft cloth.
Cooking containers
The stainless steel cooking containers are dishwasher safe.
Use a little vinegar to remove any bluish discolouration from
cooking containers.
You could also use the Miele ceramic and stainless steel hob
cleaner (see "Optional accessories"). Rinse the containers
thoroughly with clean water to remove any residual cleaning
agent.
Food probe
Clean the food probe after each use. It should be wiped
clean with a damp cloth only.
Do immerse the food probe in water or clean it in the
dishwasher.
130
Cleaning and care
Grease filter
Clean the grease filter after every roasting programme with a
solution of washing-up liquid and hot water or in the
dishwasher.
^ Pull the grease filter upwards to remove it.
If the grease filter is cleaned in the dishwasher, results are
better if the filter is placed horizontally in the basket. Some
dishwasher detergents may cause the surface of the filter to
discolour. This discolouration will not affect the functioning of
the filter in any way.
Floor filter
The filter in the floor of the oven should be cleaned and dried
after each use.
Vinegar can be used to remove discolouration and limescale
deposits. You could also use the Miele ceramic and stainless
steel hob cleaner (see "Optional accessories"). Rinse
thoroughly with clean water to remove any residual cleaning
agent.
Water container / condensate container
Remove and empty the water container / condensate
container after each use. Rinse by hand or in the dishwasher
and then dry to prevent limescale.
Water can drip into the water container / condensate
container compartment when removing the containers. Dry
the compartment with a soft cloth.
131
Cleaning and care
Oven interior
The oven interior is made from stainless steel which has been
treated with a special finish called PerfectClean. Please refer
to the section on "PerfectClean" for more information.
The oven door and the side runners can be removed to make
it easier to clean the oven interior.
After a programme using steam
Please remove
– condensate using a sponge or absorbent cloth,
– light, greasy soiling with a sponge and a solution of
washing-up liquid and hot water.
Rinse thoroughly with clean water and then dry the oven
interior with a soft cloth. You can then leave the oven to dry
automatically (see "Maintenance / Drying").
After a roasting, grilling or baking programme
Clean the oven thoroughly after roasting, grilling and baking
as otherwise soiling can burn on and become impossible to
remove.
Remove light soiling with a non-scouring washing-up
sponge and a solution of washing-up liquid and hot water. If
necessary, the pad on the reverse of the sponge can be
used.
Rinse or wipe surfaces clean afterwards and then dry with a
soft cloth.
Soaking the soiling for a few minutes with a solution of
washing-up liquid and hot water can make cleaning easier.
Alternatively run the "Maintenance / Soak" programme (see
"Maintenance").
Do not use oven spray as you will not be able to remove
all residual chemicals.
132
Cleaning and care
Door seal
Grease deposits on the seal between the inside of the oven
door and the oven interior can cause it to become brittle and
cracked. Clean the door seal after every baking or roasting
programme using a clean, damp microfibre cloth or a clean
sponge and a solution of washing-up liquid and hot water.
Wipe dry with a soft cloth.
Replace the seal with a new one if it becomes porous or
brittle. Door seals can be ordered from the Miele Spare Parts
Department.
PerfectClean
The oven interior and side runners are made from stainless
steel which has been treated with a special PerfectClean
finish which gives the surface an iridescent appearance.
PerfectClean surfaces have very good non-stick properties
and are easy to clean.
However, it is very important to clean the surfaces each time
the oven is used. The surface will become harder to clean
and the non-stick properties will deteriorate if soiling is not
removed after each use and allowed to build up.
Soiling such as spilt juices and cake mixtures are best
removed whilst the oven or tray is still warm. Exercise caution,
make sure the oven is not hot.
Spilt fruit juices may cause lasting discolouration of the
surfaces. This discolouration is permanent but will not affect
the efficiency of the surface.
133
Cleaning and care
Remove residual cleaning agent after cleaning. If left it will
reduce the non-stick properties of the PerfectClean
surfaces.
To protect the non-stick effect of PerfectClean surfaces
please avoid:
– abrasive cleaning agents, e.g. powder cleaners and cream
cleaners,
– cleaning agents for ceramic hobs,
– ceramic and stainless steel hob cleaner,
– wire wool or metal scourers,
– abrasive sponges, e.g. pot scourers or sponges which
have been previously used with abrasive cleaning agents,
– oven spray must not be used in a hot oven or left on for too
long,
– cleaning in a dishwasher,
– spot cleaning.
134

^ Select "Rinse", and follow the instructions in the display.
Rinsing takes approx. 10 minutes.
135
Cleaning and care
Descaling
We recommend using Miele descaling tablets for
descaling the appliance (see "Optional accessories").
These have been specially developed for Miele
appliances to optimise the descaling process.
Other descaling agents, which contain other acids
besides citric acid and/or other undesirable substances,
such as chlorides, for example, could damage the steam
oven. Moreover, the descaling effect required could not
be guaranteed if the descaling solution was not of the
appropriate concentration.
Do not let descaling solution come into contact with the
handle or the metal control panel as this could cause
marks to appear. Should descaling agent get onto these
surfaces, wipe it away immediately.
The appliance will need descaling after a certain number of
operating hours. After switching on, a message will then
appear in the display to tell you that you are able to run 10
programmes before the appliance has to be descaled. Only
programmes which use steam are counted. The appliance
will lock completely after you have run the tenth programme
which uses steam and you will not be able to use any of the
functions. However, we recommend that you descale the
appliance before it locks. The descaling process takes about
40 minutes. During descaling you will be prompted to refill
the water container with fresh tap water twice.
^ Switch the appliance on and select "Maintenance /
Descale".
The message "Please wait ..." will appear in the display. The
descaling process is being primed and may take a few
minutes.
As soon as the appliance is ready you will be prompted to fill
the water container.
^ Fill the water container with 1.0 litre of fresh tap water up to
the level marker and drop 2 Miele descaling tablets in it.
^ Push the water container into the appliance until it connects
and then follow the instructions in the display.
136
Cleaning and care
The descaling process will start after you confirm "OK" for the
last time.
It is only possible to cancel the descaling process during
the first 6 minutes.
Do not switch the appliance off during the descaling
process. If it is switched off before the end of the process,
the whole process will have to be started from the
beginning again.
The system will need rinsing through after approx. 25 minutes
^ Follow the instructions in the display.
Once this has taken place "Empty the condensate container"
will appear in the display.
^ Follow the instructions in the display and then confirm with
"OK".
A message will appear in the display when the descaling
process has been completed.
After descaling
^ Switch the appliance off.
^ Remove, empty and dry the water container.
^ Open the door.
^ Dry the oven interior.
Make sure the appliance is completely dry before closing
the door.
137
Cleaning and care
Oven door
To remove the oven door
Before removing the door, the locking clamps on both hinges
have to be released.
^ Open the door fully.
^ To release the locking clamps on the hinges press and turn
them upwards as far as they will go until they are at an
angle. See illustration.
Danger of injury.
Do not attempt to take the door off when it is in a
horizontal position. The hinge retainers will close, and
damage the appliance.
138
Cleaning and care
^ Raise the door up till it rests open.
^ Hold the door securely at both sides and lift it evenly
upwards off the hinge retainers.
Do not lift the door off by the handle. The handle could
break and damage the door glass.
Make sure that you lift the door off equally on both sides.
To replace it
^ Hold the door securely at both sides and carefully fit it back
into the hinge retainers.
Make sure that the door goes back on straight.
^ Open the door fully.
^ Turn both locking clamps down as far as they will go into a
horizontal position.
It is essential that the clamps are locked after refitting the
door. Otherwise the hinges could work loose, resulting in
damage to the door.
139
Problem solving guide
