Description of the appliance
Accessories supplied
Cover
Grilling rack
The cover supplied must only be used
in the Microwave-solo mode.
The grilling rack can be used for all
functions with and without
microwave power, except for
Microwave-solo mode.
It prevents the food from drying out and
the oven from becoming dirty, and it
accelerates the heating process.
Boiling rod
To avoid the grilling rack being used
inadvertently with Microwave-solo, it
should not be kept inside the
microwave oven.
Glass tray
The glass tray is suitable for use with all
cooking functions.
When grilling directly on the rack, the
glass tray should be placed underneath
the rack to catch any fat or juices.
Gourmet plate
The gourmet plate is a round, non-stick
grilling plate. It can be used to heat
snacks or small meals quickly whilst
maintaining crispness.
6
When heating liquids, the boiling rod
provided should always be placed in
the container. It helps liquids to heat
evenly.
Caring for the environment
Disposal of the packing
material
The transport and protective packing
has been selected from materials which
are environmentally friendly for
disposal, and can normally be
recycled.
Ensure that any plastic wrappings,
bags, etc. are disposed of safely and
kept out of the reach of babies and
young children. Danger of suffocation!
Disposal of your old appliance
Electrical and electronic appliances
often 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.
Rather than just throwing these
materials away, please ensure that they
are offered for recycling.
Please dispose of it at your local
community waste collection/recycling
centre, and ensure that it presents no
danger to children while being stored
for disposal.
It should be unplugged or
disconnected from the mains electricity
supply by a competent person. The
plug must be rendered useless, and the
cable cut off directly behind it to
prevent misuse. See the "Warning and
Safety" section of this booklet for further
details.

Warning and Safety instructions
Technical safety
This appliance complies with all
relevant local and national safety
requirements. Improper use can
present a risk of both personal injury
and material damage.
To avoid the risk of accidents and
damage to the appliance, please
read these operating instructions
carefully before installation and
before using it for the first time. They
contain important notes on
installation, safety, operation and
care of the appliance.
Keep these instructions in a safe
place and pass them on to any
future user.
Correct use
The appliance is intended for
domestic use only: to cook,
defrost, reheat and to grill food. Any
other usage is not supported by the
manufacturer and could be dangerous.
The manufacturer cannot be held liable
for damage caused by improper or
incorrect use of the appliance.
Never use the microwave to store
or dry items which could ignite
easily. Moisture evaporates. Fire
hazard.
This appliance is not a toy! To
avoid the risk of injury, do not allow
children to play on or near it or to play
with the controls. Supervise its use by
older children, the elderly or infirm. If
allowing older children to use the
appliance without supervision, please
ensure that they are aware of how a
microwave oven works and understand
the dangers of improper use.
8
If the connection cable is
damaged, the new cable must be
fitted by a Miele approved service
technician.
Do not use the microwave if
- the door is warped.
- the door hinges are loose.
- holes or cracks are visible in the
casing, the door or the oven interior
walls.
Operating the appliance with this type
of damage will result in microwave
leakage and present a hazard to the
user.
Never open the casing of the
appliance.
Tampering with electrical connections
or components and mechanical parts is
highly dangerous and can cause
operational faults or electric shock.
Before connecting the appliance to
the mains supply, make sure that
the rating on the data plate
corresponds to the voltage and
frequency of the household supply. This
data must correspond in order to avoid
risk of damage to the appliance.
Consult a qualified electrician if in any
doubt.
Warning and Safety instructions
Do not connect the appliance to
the mains electricity supply by an
extension lead.
Extension leads do not guarantee the
required safety of the appliance (e.g.
danger of overheating).
This equipment may only be used
in mobile installations such as
ships, caravans, aircraft etc. if a risk
assessment of the installation has been
carried out by a suitably qualified
engineer.
The electrical safety of this
appliance can only be guaranteed
when continuity is complete between it
and an effective earthing system which
complies with local and national safety
regulations. It is most important that this
basic safety requirement is present and
regularly tested and where there is any
doubt, the on-site electrical wiring
should be inspected by a qualified
electrician.
The manufacturer cannot be held liable
for the consequences of an inadequate
earthing system (e.g. electric shock).
In countries where there are areas
which may be subject to infestation
by cockroaches or other vermin, pay
particular attention to keeping the
appliance and its surroundings in a
clean condition at all times. Any
damage which may be caused by
cockroaches or other vermin will not be
covered by the guarantee.
The appliance must be built in
before operation to ensure that no
electrical components are accessible.
Repairs may only be carried out by
a suitably qualified and competent
person in accordance with national and
local safety regulations. Repairs and
other work by unqualified persons
could be dangerous. The manufacturer
cannot be held liable for unauthorised
work.
The appliance is only completely
isolated from the electricity supply
when:
- it is switched off at the wall socket and
the plug removed.
- the mains fuse is disconnected
- or the screw-out fuse is removed (in
countries where this is applicable).
Use
Always ensure that food is
sufficiently heated.
Many factors will affect the overall
cooking time, including the size and
amount of food, its initial temperature,
changes to the recipe and the shape
and size of cooking container.
Some foods may contain
micro-organisms which are only
destroyed by thorough cooking,
therefore when cooking or reheating
foods, e.g. poultry, it is particularly
important that food is fully cooked
through (at temperatures over 70°C for
more than 10 minutes). If in doubt,
select a longer cooking or reheating
time.
9
Warning and Safety instructions
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 by observing a
sufficiently long standing time, which
should be added to the time needed for
cooking, reheating or defrosting.
Always remember that times for
cooking, reheating and defrosting
in a microwave oven are usually
considerably shorter than with
traditional methods of food preparation.
Excessively long cooking times can
lead to food drying out and burning, or
could even cause it to catch fire. There
is also a danger of fire if breadcrumbs,
flowers, herbs, etc., are dried in the
microwave oven.
Always ensure that this type of
procedure is supervised.
Do not use the microwave function
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 microwave.
Exercise caution when cooking or
reheating food with a high sugar
content, e.g. Christmas pudding. If
heated for too long, the sugar may
caramelise or ignite.
10
Do not use full power to warm
empty dishes. Do not use the
appliance without food, or if it is
incorrectly loaded.
Never 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. Danger of
injury.
Before serving, remember to allow
a sufficient standing time and then
always check the temperature of the
actual food itself after taking it out of the
microwave. 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.
When heating food and drink 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.
Warning and Safety instructions
When heating liquids, the boiling
rod provided should always be
placed into the container.
To avoid fuelling any flames, do not
open the oven door if smoke
occurs in the oven interior.
Interrupt the process by pressing the
Stop/C button twice. Switch off at the
wall socket, and where applicable,
remove the plug. Do not open the door
until the smoke has dispersed.
Never heat undiluted alcohol in the
oven as this can easily ignite. Fire
hazard.
Do not heat up tins in the
microwave oven. Pressure can
build up and they may explode
resulting in injury or damage.
When heating liquids, milk, sauces etc.
in the oven 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,
which can lead to the liquid boiling over
suddenly and explosively. Danger of
burning.
Cover any food which is left in the
oven to be kept hot, as moisture in
the food could lead to corrosion
damage in the oven. This also prevents
the food from drying out.
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.
The formation of bubbles can be so
strong that the pressure forces the oven
door open, with a danger of burning.
The boiling rod ensures that bubbles
are produced, and that liquids heat
evenly.
11
Warning and Safety instructions
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 wire ties. Do not use
bowls with milled rims, or cream pots
with the tinfoil lid only partially removed.
Such items could be damaged or
cause a fire hazard.
The rack and gourmet plate supplied
with the appliance are designed to be
compatible with microwaves and can
therefore be used for grilling with or
without the microwave function.
N.B. Do not use the rack for
Microwave-solo.
Do not use the rack and the
gourmet plate at the same time.
This will damage the gourmet plate.
Always place the gourmet plate directly
on the turntable.
Do not use the cover with the
gourmet plate, as the cover will get
too hot.
Do not leave the oven unattended
when reheating or cooking food in
disposable containers made of plastic,
paper or other inflammable materials.
Before using single-use plastic
containers, make sure they are suitable
for use in microwave ovens. See
appropriate section.
12
Eggs can only be cooked in their
shells in the microwave oven in a
specially designed egg-boiling device
available from specialist shops.
Similarly, hard-boiled eggs should not
be reheated in the microwave oven as
this may lead to the eggs bursting,
even after they have been taken out of
the oven.
Eggs can be cooked without their
shells using microwave heat only if
the yolk membrane has been
punctured several times first.
The pressure could otherwise cause
the egg yolk to explode.
Danger of injury.
Food with a thick skin or peel, such
as tomatoes, sausages, jacket
potatoes and aubergines, should be
pierced or the skin cut in several places
before cooking to allow steam to
escape and prevent the food from
bursting.
Do not reheat food in the oven in
heat-retaining bags which are
intended for 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.
Always ensure that food, the
gourmet plate or a browning dish
has been placed in the microwave, and
that the turntable is in place, before
switching on.
Warning and Safety instructions
Do not use the appliance for deep
frying food, and do not leave it
unattended when cooking with oils and
fats as these can be a fire hazard if
allowed to overheat.
Ovenproof earthenware can retain
a considerable amount of moisture.
Earthenware and porcelain containers
with hollow handles and lid knobs must
only be used in this oven if they have
vent holes which allow the moisture to
escape. Without vent holes pressure
can build up, causing the container to
crack or shatter with the danger of
injury.
When grilling with or without the
microwave function, the oven
interior, grill element and door can get
hot. Do not let small children touch the
oven while it is in operation, as there is
the danger of being burnt. Supervise its
use by elderly or infirm people.
Wear oven gloves when taking
dishes in and out of the oven, or
when handling dishes or food in the
oven if the grill is on or has just been in
operation. Danger of burning.
The gourmet plate gets extremely
hot when in use. Always use oven
gloves when handling it to avoid burns.
Place it on a suitable heat-resistant mat
or pot rest.
The rack and glass tray get hot during
grilling (with and without the microwave
function). Take care not to burn
yourself on them.
Never place the hot glass tray (or
any other hot cooking containers)
on a cold surface, such as a tiled or
granite worktop. The glass tray or
container could crack or shatter, and
the worktop surface could get
damaged. Use a suitable heat-resistant
mat or pot rest.
Do not use the oven to heat up the
room. Due to the high temperatures
radiated, objects left near the appliance
could catch fire.
When using kitchen appliances
connected to sockets near the
appliance, ensure that the cable cannot
get trapped in a hot oven door, which
could melt the cable insulation and be
dangerous.
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. Never use a
thermometer containing mercury or
liquid, as these are not suitable for use
with very high temperatures and will
break very easily.
Do not use a steam-cleaning
appliance to clean this appliance.
Pressurised steam could reach the
electrical components and cause a
short circuit.
13
Warning and Safety instructions
When using browning dishes:
Disposal of your old appliance
Always use oven gloves when
handling the browning dish to
avoid burns.
Before disposing of your old
appliance, first make it unusable.
Disconnect it from the mains, cut off the
cable near the appliance and cut off
and render any plug unusable. This
should be done by a competent
person.
Never place the browning dish
directly onto a table or work
surface. Use a suitable heat-resistant
mat, grid or board to protect the work
surface or table and prevent heat
marks.
Browning dishes should only be
used in a microwave oven, or as a
serving dish.
In a conventional oven the special
glaze would suffer damage.
14
The manufacturer cannot be held
liable for damage caused by
non-compliance with these Warning
and Safety instructions.
Modes of operation
How does the microwave oven
function?
As heat is produced directly in the
food,
In a microwave 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.
Microwave distribution is improved with
the turntable engaged.
– food can generally be cooked
without adding much liquid or
cooking oil.
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 lead to the creation of
sparks. The microwaves cannot be
absorbed.
– cooking, reheating and defrosting in
a microwave oven 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.
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.

Operating modes
What can a microwave oven
do?
In what ways can a microwave
oven be used?
In the microwave oven, food is cooked,
reheated or defrosted quickly.
Microwave-solo mode
You can use your microwave in the
following ways:
– Food can be defrosted, reheated or
cooked by entering a power setting
and a time.
– Deep-frozen, ready-made meals can
be defrosted and then reheated or
cooked.
– The microwave oven can also be
used for other tasks, e.g. for proving
dough, melting chocolate and butter,
dissolving gelatine etc.
Suitable for defrosting, reheating and
cooking.
Grilling
Ideal for grilling very thin cuts of meat,
e.g. bacon.
Combination mode
(Microwave + Grill)
Ideal for browning dishes with
toppings. The microwave cooks the
food, and the grill browns it.
Automatic programmes
You can choose from the following automatic programmes:
– four defrosting programmes
(N: Ad 1 to Ad 4),
– one cooking programme for frozen
food
(N °: AC 1 ),
– and five cooking programmes for
fresh food
(°: AC 1 to AC 5).
These programmes are weight
dependent. You enter the weight of the
food, and then the cooking time is
calculated automatically.

Suitable containers for microwave ovens
Microwaves
Material and shape
The material and shape of 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.
Metal
– are reflected by metal,
Metal containers, aluminium foil and
metal cutlery, or china with metallic
decoration, such as gold rims or
cobalt blue must not be used in an
oven being used in microwave
mode.
The metal reflects the microwaves,
hindering the cooking process.
Exceptions:
– pass through glass, porcelain,
plastic and card,
– Ready-meals in aluminium foil dishes
These can be defrosted and reheated
in the microwave oven, if recommended
by the manufacturer. 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 a microwave oven. The heat
distribution will be more even.
– and are absorbed by food.
If sparks and arcing occur when using
an aluminium container, stop and
transfer the food to a microwave-safe
container.
17
Suitable containers for microwave ovens
– Pieces of aluminium foil
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
These should only be used if they are
very small in comparison to the size of
the cut of meat.
Glassware
Heat-resistant glass or ceramic glass
are ideal for use in the microwave oven.
Crystal glass contains lead which
could cause the glass to crack.
Glass dishes with a milled rim are
also subject to this risk.
Both are unsuitable.
Porcelain
Porcelain is a suitable material.
Do not use porcelain with gold or
silver edging or items with hollow
knobs or handles, as insufficient
ventilation may cause pressure.
Earthenware
Decorated earthenware is only suitable
if the decoration is beneath an all-over
glaze.
18
Earthenware can get very hot, and
may crack.
Glazes and colours
Some glazes and colours contain
metals which make them unsuitable
for use in a microwave oven.
Plastics
When purchasing plasticware, make
sure that it is suitable for use in a
microwave oven.
Plastic containers must only be used
in microwave mode alone.
Plastics must be heat-resistant to a
minimum of 110 °C. Otherwise the
plastic may melt and fuse with the
food.
Special plastic utensils designed for
use in microwave ovens are available
from good retail outlets. Melamine is not
suitable as it absorbs energy and heats
up.
Disposable containers, such as trays
made from polystyrene, can only be
used for very short timed warming and
reheating of food.
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.
Suitable containers for microwave ovens
Roasting bags and tubes can also be
used. Roasting tubes should be about
40 cm longer and roasting bags about
20 cm longer than the food being
roasted, and carefully tied with string.
Turn the ends over and secure them.
The bag should be pierced according
to the manufacturer's instructions.
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.
Wood
Wooden dishes are not suitable.
Moisture contained in the wood
evaporates when exposed to
microwave energy, causing the
wood to dry and crack.
Disposable containers
Only those plastic disposable
containers which are specified by the
manufacturer as suitable for use in a
microwave oven may be used.
Do not leave the oven unattended
when reheating or cooking food in
disposable containers made of
plastic, paper or other inflammable
materials.
Disposable containers are not always
recyclable or bio-degradable.
Testing dishes for their
suitability
If in doubt as to whether glass,
earthenware or porcelain plates or
dishes are suitable for use in a
microwave oven, a simple test can be
performed:
^ Place the item you wish to test in the
centre of the oven, fill a suitable glass
with water and also place this in the
oven.
^ Close the door.
^ Turn the power selector to 900 W.
^ Enter a time of 30 seconds with the
time selector.
^ Press the Start button.
At the end of the test, the water in
the glass should be warm and the
dish cool. If the dish is hot the water
cold it would be unwise to use the
dish.
If a crackling noise is heard
accompanied by sparks during the
test, switch the appliance off immediately (press button Stop/C twice).
Any crockery which causes this
reaction is unsuitable for use with
microwave power.
If any doubt exists about the
suitability of containers, 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.
19
Suitable containers for microwave ovens
The cover
Do not use a lid or cover if
– prevents too much steam escaping,
especially when cooking foods which
need longer to cook, such as
potatoes.
– food coated with breadcrumbs is
being cooked.
– shortens and evens out the cooking
process.
– prevents food from drying out.
– prevents any loss of aroma.
– helps keep the oven interior clean.
– cooking meals which are to be given
a crisp finish.
– the gourmet plate is being used.
Because the cover can only
withstand temperatures of up to
110 °C it must only be used in
microwave-solo mode. It must not be
used in conjunction with the gourmet
plate. At temperatures in excess of
110 °C the plastic can melt and get
into the food.
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.
Always cover food with the cover
supplied.
Alternatively, use lids or covers made of
microwave-safe glass or plastic, or 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.
Sealed glass containers, such as
jars of baby food, must be opened
before they are placed in the oven.

Microwave function at one of three
different power levels.
If the total grilling time required is less
than 15 minutes, the grill should be
pre-heated for approx. 5 minutes before
placing food under it.
Thin, flat cuts of fish and meat should
usually be turned half way through
grilling for even results. Larger,
chunkier pieces should be turned
several times.
Grilling times depend on the type and
thickness of the food and on the user's
preference for a rare or well-cooked
result.
When grilling directly on the rack, the
glass tray should be placed underneath
the rack to catch any fat or juices.
^ Place the food in a suitable dish.
^ Place the glass tray, the rack and
glass tray, or the dish containing the
food on the turntable.
Caution. The rack and glass tray
become hot during use.
Danger of burning.

Gourmet plate
Use
The gourmet plate gets extremely
hot when in use. Always use oven
gloves when handling it to avoid
burns. Place it on a suitable
heat-resistant mat or pot rest.
Before using for the first time
Before using the gourmet plate for the
first time, fill it with 400 ml water and
add 3-4 tbsps vinegar or lemon juice.
Heat for 10 minutes on 450 W + Grill L.
Searing / browning food
^ When using the gourmet plate, make
sure that the food is ready to transfer
to the gourmet plate as soon as it has
heated up.
^ Place the gourmet plate directly on
the turntable.
Do not place it on the rack as this
could cause sparking and damage
the gourmet plate.
^ Heat the plate up on 450 W + Grill L
for approx. 5 minutes.
If using oil, you can either heat up the
oil on the gourmet plate, or you can
heat the oil separately and then add it
to the plate.
Butter, however, should always be
added after heating up the gourmet
plate. It has a lower burning point than
oil and would get too dark or burn if
added too soon.
Always dry meat, poultry, fish and
vegetables thoroughly before placing
them on the gourmet plate.
30
Do not use the gourmet plate to
cook eggs or reheat cooked eggs.
The eggs can burst.
The gourmet plate has an easy to
clean anti-stick coating so that food
can be removed easily. The coating
is susceptible to cuts and scratches.
Therefore do not cut food up directly
on the plate.
Use wooden or plastic utensils to
mix or turn food. Metallic or sharp
objects can damage the coating.

Reheating
Select the following microwave power
levels to reheat food:
Drinks . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 900 W
Food . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 600 W
Food for babies and toddlers . . . 450 W
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 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.
Tips on reheating
Always use a lid or cover for reheating
food, except when a drier finish is
needed, e.g. breaded poultry/meat.
Always remove the lids from jars,
especially jars of baby food.
Remove the rubber teat and screw
cap before warming baby bottles.
When reheating liquids, place the
boiling rod supplied with the
appliance into the cup or glass.
Never reheat hard boiled eggs in a
microwave oven, even without the
shell. The eggs can burst.
food, its initial temperature and the
amount to be cooked.
Always ensure that food is
sufficiently cooked or reheated.
If in any doubt that a sufficiently high
temperature has been reached,
continue reheating for a little longer.
Stir or turn food from time to time during
cooking. Stir the food from the outside
towards the middle, as food heats more
quickly from the outside.
After reheating
Be careful when removing a dish
from the oven. It may be hot.
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.
Allow food to stand for a few minutes at
room temperature at the end of a
reheating process to enable the heat to
spread evenly throughout the food.
After heating 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.
Food taken straight from the refrigerator
will take longer to reheat than food
stored at room temperature. The time
required depends on the nature of the
41
Cooking
Place the food in a microwave-proof
dish and cover it.
When cooking, it is a good idea to
select a power level of 900 W to start
with and then when the food is hot
reduce the power level to 450 W for
more gentle continued cooking.
For dishes such as rice or semolina
pudding first select a power level of
900 W, and then reduce it to 150 W for
simmering.
Tips on cooking
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.
Add a little water to vegetables which
have been kept stored.
Food taken straight from the refrigerator
takes longer to cook than food which
has been kept at room temperature.
Stir or turn food from time to time during
cooking to help it cook more evenly.
Ensure that food such as meat and
fish are thoroughly cooked for an
appropriate length of time.
Food with a thick skin or peel, such as
tomatoes, sausages, jacket potatoes
and aubergines, should be pierced or
the skin cut in several places before
cooking to allow steam to escape and
to prevent the food from bursting.
Eggs can only be cooked in their
shells in the microwave oven 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
in the microwave oven only if the yolk
membrane has been punctured several
times first.
The pressure could otherwise cause
the egg yolk to explode.
After cooking
Be careful when removing a dish
from the oven. It may be hot.
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.
Allow food to stand for a few minutes at
room temperature at the end of cooking
to enable the heat to spread evenly
throughout the food.
42
Defrosting/Defrosting and reheating or cooking
Defrosting
Select the following microwave power
settings to reheat food:
– 80 W
for defrosting very delicate food, e.g.
cream, butter, gateau and cheese.
– 150 W
for defrosting everything else.
Remove the food from its packaging
and place in a microwave-proof
container. Do not cover. Turn, stir or
separate the food about half-way
through the defrosting time.
To defrost meat, unpack the frozen
meat and place it on an upturned plate
in a glass or china container so that the
meat juice can run off and be collected.
Turn halfway through defrosting.
After defrosting
Allow the food to stand at room
temperature for a few minutes after
defrosting to enable the heat to spread
evenly throughout the food.
Defrosting followed by
reheating or cooking
Deep-frozen food can be defrosted and
immediately reheated or cooked.
After defrosting, select 900 W followed
by 450 W.
Remove the food from its packaging
and place in a covered
microwave-proof dish for defrosting and
reheating or cooking. Exception:
Minced meat should be left uncovered
while cooking.
Soups, stew and vegetables should be
stirred several times during the
process. Carefully separate and turn
slices of meat halfway through the
programme. Turn pieces of fish at the
halfway stage.
After defrosting followed by
reheating or cooking
Allow the food to stand at room
temperature for a few minutes to enable
the heat to spread evenly throughout
the food.

Cleaning and care
Disconnect the microwave oven
from the power supply before
cleaning (e.g. switch off at the
socket and remove the plug).
Oven interior and inside of the
door
The oven interior can get hot during
use. To avoid the danger of being
burnt, wait until it has cooled down
before cleaning. It should be
cleaned after each use. Waiting too
long can make cleaning
unnecessarily difficult and in some
cases impossible.
In certain circumstances, very heavy
soiling can even damage the
appliance.
The oven interior and door interior can
be cleaned using a damp cloth with a
little washing up liquid or a mild
detergent and water. Wipe dry with a
soft cloth.
For more heavy soiling, heat a glass of
water for 2 to 3 minutes until the water
begins to boil. The steam will collect on
the walls and soften the soiling.
The oven interior can now be wiped
clean using a little washing-up liquid if
necessary.
Stainless steel surfaces can be cleaned
with a proprietary non-abrasive cleaner
for stainless steel, following the
instructions given by the manufacturer
on the packaging.
Do not remove the cover to the
microwave outlet inside the oven,
nor the film covering the inside of
the door.
Do not let water or any small
particles penetrate the vents in the
appliance.
Wring out cloths before using them
to wipe out the oven to avoid
moisture getting into the openings.
Do not use abrasive cleaners, as
these scratch the surface.
To neutralise odours in the oven, put a
cup of water with some lemon juice in
the oven and simmer for a few minutes.
45
Cleaning and care
The door should be kept clean at all
times and checked at regular intervals
for any signs of damage.
If any damage is noticed, the
appliance should not be used until
the fault has been rectified by a
Miele authorised and trained service
technician.
To clean the interior:
Do not turn the carrier manually, as
this could damage the drive motor.
Appliance front and control
panel
E-Cloth
^ A microfibre "E-Cloth" is available
from the Miele UK Spare Parts
Department, which is suitable for
cleaning surfaces such as stainless
steel, glass, plastic and chrome
without the use of chemicals. It can
be washed 300 times.
^ All surfaces and controls should be
cleaned using an E-Cloth or warm
water and a little washing up liquid
applied with a soft sponge or cloth.
^ Remove the turntable, and wash in
the dishwasher or by hand.
^ Always keep the roller ring
underneath it clean as well as the
oven floor to enable the turntable to
turn smoothly.
^ Clean the area between the turntable
and the carrier.

Problem solving guide
. . . the display does not light up.
Repairs to this appliance must only
be carried out by a Miele approved
service technician in strict
accordance with current local and
national safety regulations. Repairs
and other work by unqualified
persons could be dangerous. The
manufacturer cannot be held liable
for unauthorised work.
Some minor problems can be corrected
without contacting the Miele Service
Department.
What to do if . . .
. . . a programme will not start.
Check whether,
^ the appliance door is closed
properly.
^ the system lock has been activated
(see "System lock").
^ the appliance is plugged into the
mains supply and switched on at the
socket.
^ the mains fuse has blown (call a
qualified electrician or the Service
Department if it has. See "After sales
service").
Check whether,
^ the time of day display has been
switched off (press and hold the m
button for a few seconds).
^ the time of day display has been
programmed to switch off at night.
. . . the turntable does not turn
smoothly.
^ Check whether the area underneath
the roller ring is clean.
^ Check whether the surfaces between
the turntable and the carrier are
clean.
Remove any soiling.
. . . food is not adequately defrosted,
heated or cooked at the end of the
selected cooking duration.
^ Check whether the correct power
level was selected for the duration
set.
The lower the power level, the longer
the duration required.
^ Check whether the programme has
been interrupted and not restarted.
. . . a noise can be heard after a
cooking programme.
This is not a fault.
The cooling fan will continue to run for a
while after the oven has been switched
off to dispel any moisture from the oven
and prevent it settling on the control
panel or surrounding furniture.
It will switch off automatically.
49
Problem solving guide
. . . strange noises are heard when
the microwave oven is being used.
Check whether,
^ the food is covered with aluminium
foil.
If so, remove it.
^ Sparks are being created by the use
of crockery with a metallic finish. See
notes on suitable types of containers.
. . . the time of day in the display is
not accurate.
If there has been a power cut, the time
automatically switches back to 12:00.
The time of day needs to be re-set.
^ Set the correct time of day.
. . . food cools down too quickly.
In the microwave oven, food begins to
cook from the outside first, the inside of
the food relying on the slower
conduction of heat.
If food is cooked at a high power level,
it is possible that the heat may not have
reached the centre of the food, so it is
hot on the outside but cold in the
centre. During standing time heat is
transferred to the centre of the food.
This may leave the food warm in the
middle but cool on the outside. When
reheating food with different densities,
such as plated meals, it is therefore
sensible to start with a low power level
and lengthen the duration required.
50
. . . the microwave switches itself off
during a cooking, reheating or
defrosting programme.
There may be insufficient air circulation.
Check whether,
^ the air inlet or outlet is blocked.
Remove any objects if necessary. The
appliance switches off automatically in
cases of overheating. Cooking can be
continued after a cooling-down period.
If the microwave oven switches itself off
repeatedly, please call the Miele
Service Department.
If it is not possible to remedy a fault
by following the instructions given
above, on no account open the
appliance casing.
This microwave oven should only be
repaired by a suitably qualified
technician trained by Miele.

in any way. Do not use a damaged
appliance.
Electrical connection
All electrical work should be carried out
by a suitably qualified and competent
person in strict accordance with current
national and local safety regulations
(BS 7671 in the UK).
The appliance is supplied with a mains
cable and moulded plug ready for
connection to an a.c. single phase
220-240 V 50 Hz supply.
The voltage and connected load are
given on the data plate which is located
inside the door to the appliance. Please
ensure that these match the household
mains supply. The fuse rating is quoted
on the plug.
Connection should be made via a fused
connection unit or a fused plug and a
suitable switched socket, or via a
suitable isolator, which complies with
national and local safety regulations,
and the on/off switch should be easily
accessible after the appliance has
been installed. If it is installed via an
