overheated. Danger of burns.
~ Once hot grease or oil have ignited,
~ Maintain the recommended cooking
times in the "Broil", "EcoBroil" and
"ConvectionBroil" functions. Excessive
cooking times result in drying out and
possibly spontaneous combustion of
food. Danger of burns.
~ Do not use the "Broil", "EcoBroil" and
"ConvectionBroil" functions when
baking rolls or bread and drying flowers
and herbs. Danger of burns. Instead
use "ConvectionPlus" or "Surround".
~ Be careful when using alcoholic
beverages like rum, whiskey, wine etc.
for baking or roasting. The alcohol
evaporates at high temperatures but
may in rare circumstances combust on
the hot heating elements.
~ When handling cooking containers
take care not to let the contents spill,
and that you do not come into contact
with either hot steam or the hot oven
walls. Danger of scalding and burns.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
~ Do not store items on the appliance
when not in use. Items could melt or
catch fire from residual heat or if the
appliance is turned on inadvertently.
~ Do not heat unopened food
containers. Pressure can build up
causing an explosion that will damage
the cooking compartment. There is also
a danger of personal injury and
scalding.
~ Do not use the appliance without the
drain filter, coarse food particles can
clog the drain and pump.
~ Containers must be heat resistant
up to 212°F (100°C). Otherwise they
may melt at high temperatures in the
oven.
~ Do not use silicone baking pans in
the combination Steam/ConvectionPlus,
they are not steam-resistant.
~ Do not place pots, pans, baking
sheets or cooking containers directly on
the oven floor.
~ Never line the oven floor with
aluminum foil and do not use protective
foil coverings available in retail stores to
protect the oven from soiling. They
affect the cooking and baking
performance significantly and block the
steam inlet.
~ Do not leave cooked foods in the
cooking compartment. Do not use items
in the steam oven which may rust. This
could lead to the corrosion of the
appliance.
~ Make certain that the power cords of
small appliances do not come in
contact with or get caught in the oven
door.
~ Do not place heavy items on the
open door of the appliance. The door
can support a maximum of 17 lbs
(8 kg).
~ Do not operate the appliance
without the lamp cover in place, steam
can come into contact with live parts
and cause a short circuit. Electric
components could be destroyed.
~ If the appliance is installed behind a
cabinet door, it must be operated with
the cabinet door open.
Close the cabinet door only when the
unit is completely dry.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
AND REVIEW THEM
PERIODICALLY
~ Do not use the oven to heat the
room.
~ Be sure food is cooked or reheated
adequately. Any micro-organisms
present in the food are killed only by
using sufficiently high temperatures
and cooking times. If in doubt select a
longer cooking or reheating time.

14
Before using for the first time
A functional test is carried out on the appliance at the
factory, this may cause some water may drip from the lines
into the oven compartment during transport.
Cleaning for the first time
Remove any protective foil.
Water container
Take the water container out of the appliance and rinse it by
hand or in the dishwasher.
Accessories / Oven interior
Take all accessories out of the oven.
The cooking containers can be washed in the dishwasher.
The Universal tray and the wire oven rack are PerfectClean
coated and should only be cleaned by hand. Please refer to
the "PerfectClean" section.
Wipe the interior with a damp cloth to remove any dust or bits
of packaging that may be in the oven.
15
Before using for the first time
Setting the correct boiling point for water
Run the Steam / Universal (212°F / 100°C) program for
15 minutes. Continue as described in the "Quick Guide"
section.
This procedure sets the correct boiling point for water for the
altitude in your area and also flushes the waterlines.
This procedure causes more steam than usual to be emitted
from the appliance.
If you move the appliance to a new location, it will need to be
re-set for the new altitude if this differs from the old one by
more than 984 ft. (300 m). To do this, run the descale program (see "Cleaning and care - Descale").
Heating the appliance
To remove the protective grease from the heating element,
heat the combi-steam oven with nothing in it to 400°F (200°C)
using the ConvectionPlus program for 30 minutes. Continue
as described in "Operation".
There will be a slight smell the first time the heating element is
heated.
The smell and any vapors 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
process.

Description of the functions
Temperature
Some functions have default temperatures. The default
temperature can be altered within a given range (see
"Functions") for an individual cooking program or permanently
(see "Settings").
Cooking duration (time)
Depending on the function, you can set a cooking duration of
between 1 - 6 minutes and 10 - 12 hours.
The duration of the MasterChef, Maintenance and Menu
cooking functions are set at the factory and cannot be
changed.
With functions and programs that use steam only, the cooking
duration does not start to count down until the set
temperature has been reached; in all other functions and
programs, it begins immediately.
Moisture level
Combination steam and Reheat functions use a combination
of convection heat and moisture. You can change the
moisture/humidity level within a given range for an individual
cooking program or a cooking stage.
Noises
You can hear a noise (humming) when the appliance is
turned on, when it is operating, and after it has been turned
off.
This noise does not indicate a malfunction or a defect. It
occurs when water is being pumped in and out.
You can hear the fan noise the when the appliance is
operating.
18
Description of the functions
Preheating phase
While the appliance is heating up to the set temperature, the
display will show the rising temperature inside the oven along
with the words "Preheating phase" (Exceptions: MasterChef,
Menu cooking, Reheating, Maintenance).
Steam
When cooking with steam, the duration of the preheating
phase will depend on the quantity and temperature of the
food. In general, the preheating phase will last for approx. 7
minutes. The duration will be longer if you are preparing
refrigerated or frozen food.
Steam reduction
With steam programs
If the cooking temperature is higher than 170°F (75°C), the
steam reduction function is automatically turned on at the end
of the cooking duration (only if this function is activated in the
Settings menu). The function reduces the amount of steam
escaping from the appliance when the door is opened. The
display shows "Steam reduction" in addition to "Program
finished".
The Steam reduction function is deactivated as the factory
default setting (see "Settings - Steam reduction").
Keep warm
With steam programs
If the appliance is not turned off at the end of a cooking program, it will switch to the Keep warm function after a short
time (only if this function is activated in the Settings menu).
The food will be kept at a temperature of 160°F (70°C) for a
maximum of 15 minutes.
The Keep warm function is deactivated as the factory default
setting (see "Settings - Keep warm").
Please note that delicate food, especially fish, can continue
cooking while being kept warm.

To save energy, the oven compartment lighting has been set
at the factory to turn off after the program has started.
To turn the light on for a short time during operation, touch
one of the inactive touch controls on the left or right hand side
of the display.
If you would like the oven compartment to be illuminated the
whole time the oven is operating the factory default setting
can be changed (see "Settings - Lighting").
If the door is left open at the end of a cooking program the
oven lighting will turn off automatically after 5 minutes. You
may find it helpful to turn the lighting on when you are
cleaning the oven (see "Additional functions - Lighting").
The lighting radiates heat. When you are cooking at a
temperature below 140°F (60°C), select the setting "on for
15 seconds".

or chloride,
– limescale removers,
– abrasive cleaning agents, e.g. powder or cream cleansers,
pumice stone,
– cleaners containing solvents,
– stainless steel cleaners,
– dishwasher detergent,
– oven cleaners,
– glass cleaners,
– abrasive hard sponges and brushes, such as pot
scrubbers,
– magic erasers,
– sharp metal scrapers.

mild solution of warm water and liquid dish soap 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
discolor. This will not affect the functioning of the filter in any
way.
Drain filter
Rinse and dry the drain filter after each use.
Stains and limescale deposits can be removed with vinegar.
You could also use the Miele ceramic and stainless steel
cleaner (see "Optional accessories"). Rinse it thoroughly with
clean water to remove any residual cleaning agents.
Water container and condensate container
Remove, empty and dry the containers after each use. Rinse
the containers by hand or in the dishwasher and dry
carefully. This avoids limescale deposits.
When removing the containers, water may drip into the
slide-in compartments. Wipe the compartments dry.
47
Cleaning and Care
Oven interior
The oven interior is made from stainless steel which has been
treated with a PerfectClean finish which gives the surface an
iridescent appearance. See "Cleaning and Care PerfectClean".
For easy cleaning of the oven interior you can remove the
door and the side runners.
After a program using steam
– Remove condensate with a sponge or soft cloth,
– Remove light, greasy soiling with a sponge, liquid dish
soap and warm water. Rinse with clean water.
After rinsing, dry the oven interior with a soft cloth. You can
then leave the oven to dry automatically (see "Maintenance Drying").
After a roasting, broiling or a baking program
Clean the oven after each roasting, broiling or baking program, otherwise items can become baked on and hard to
remove.
Clean the oven interior with a dish sponge, hot water and
liquid dish soap. If necessary, use the scouring pad on the
reverse of a non-stick dish cleaning sponge to remove the
soiling.
Rinse and wipe thoroughly with clean water, and dry the
surfaces.
Soaking the soiling for a few minutes with a solution of liquid
dish soap and warm water can make cleaning easier, or if the
program "Maintenance - Soak" is used (See "Maintenance").
Do not use oven cleaners.
48
Cleaning and Care
Door seal, inside of the door
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, broiling or
roasting program using a clean, damp microfiber cloth
without detergent or with a clean sponge, liquid dish soap
and warm water. Wipe dry with a soft cloth.
Replace the seal with a new one if it becomes porous or
brittle. Door seals are available from Miele.
49
Cleaning and Care
PerfectClean
The surfaces of the oven interior, side runners, Universal tray
and wire oven rack have a PerfectClean finish. The
PerfectClean enamel is a smooth, nonstick surface that
cleans easily with a sponge.
For optimal use, it is important to clean the surfaces each
time the combi-steam oven is used. The surface will become
harder to clean and the anti-stick properties will deteriorate if
soiling is not removed after each use and allowed to build up.
Multiple uses without cleaning leads to increased cleaning.
Soiling, such as spilled fruit juice and cake mixtures, is best
removed while the oven or tray is still warm.
Spilled fruit juices may cause lasting discoloration of the
surfaces. This discoloration is permanent but will not affect
the properties of the PerfectClean finish.
Remove cleaning residues. Cleaning residues reduce the
non-stick effect.
The following cause lasting damage to the surface
structure and must not be used:
– abrasive cleaning agents e.g. powder or cream cleansers,
pumice stones,
– cleaners for ceramics cooktops,
– ceramic and stainless steel cleaners,
– steel wool,
– abrasive sponges, e.g. pot scourers or sponges which
have been previously used with abrasive cleaning agents,
– oven cleaners must not be used on hot PerfectClean
surfaces, or left on too long,
– cleaning in the dishwasher,
– spot cleaning with mechanical cleaning devices.

^ Select "Rinse" and follow the instructions in the display.
The rinsing process takes about 10 minutes.
51
Cleaning and Care
Descale
For optimum cleaning results it is recommended that you
use Miele descaling tablets to descale your combi-steam
oven (see "Optional accessories") to avoid damage to the
appliance.
Ensure that the descaling agent does not come into
contact with the door handle or the metal control panel as
this could cause marks. Wipe the descaling agent
immediately from these surfaces.
The appliance will need descaling after a certain number of
operating hours. After turning the appliance on, a message
will appear in the display to tell you that 10 cooking programs
remain before the appliance must be descaled. Only cooking
programs which use steam and the "Rinse" function are
counted. The appliance will lock after you have run the last
remaining program which uses steam.
We recommend that you descale the appliance before it
locks. The entire descaling program takes about 1 hour.
During the program water will need to be added twice.
^ Turn on the device and select "Maintenance" then
"Descale".
The display shows the message "Please wait ...". The
descaling process is being prepared. This may take several
minutes.
Once preparation is complete, you will be prompted to fill the
water container.
^ Fill the water container with 1 qt. (1 liter) of water and add 2
Miele descaling tablets.
^ Place the water container in the appliance, and follow the
instructions on the display.
52
Cleaning and Care
After the final confirmation of "OK" the descaling starts.
The descaling program can be canceled only during the
first minute.
Do not turn the appliance off during the descaling program or the program will have to be restarted.
After a period of about 30 minutes there is a rinse cycle.
^ Follow the instructions in the display.
After the remaining time has expired the display shows
"Empty condensate container".
^ Follow the instructions on the display and confirm with
"OK".
This ends the descaling program. The display shows an
appropriate message.
After descaling
^ Turn the appliance off.
^ Remove the water container and dry it.
^ Open the door.
^ Dry the oven interior.
Make sure the appliance is completely dry before closing
the door.
53
Cleaning and Care
Removing the runners
^ Pull the runners sideways first a then forward b and out.
^ Re-insert them in the reverse order.
Oven door
To remove the door
Before the door can be removed the release levers on both
door hinges must be unlocked.
^ Open the door fully.
54
Cleaning and Care
^ Unlock the release levers on both door hinges by pushing
on them. Turn the release levers until they click and are in a
slanted position.
Never pull the door off the brackets in the horizontal
position. These will then snap back, and damage the
device. Danger of injury.
^ Close the door until it stops.
^ Holding the door evenly with both hands, lift the door up at
a slant and off the hinges.
Do not lift the door at the door handle. The handle and
door panels could be damaged.
Make sure that the door is not tilted during removal.
55
Cleaning and Care
To dismantle the door
The door is protected all around by seals against the
penetration of vapors.
If soiling builds up in the space between the glass panels,
you can disassemble the door to clean the inside of the
glass.
Do not use abrasive cleaners, hard sponges or brushes or
sharp metal scrapers for cleaning glass surfaces. You will
scratch the surface.
Do not use oven cleaner. The surface of the aluminum will
be damaged. Make sure that the glass panels are put
back into the correct position after cleaning, since the
individual sides of the panels are coated differently. The
sides facing the oven interior are heat-reflective.
Store the removed panes safely so they do not break.
,Always remove the door before you disassemble it.
Place the door on a soft surface (such as a towel) to prevent
scratches. It is advisable to put the handle next to the table
edge, so that the glass is lying flat and cannot break during
cleaning.
^ Unscrew the Torx screws, and remove the retainers.
56
Cleaning and Care
^ Lift the inner panel slightly and pull it out.
^ Lift the middle glass panel slightly and pull it out.
The seals may sometimes loosen during this process. These
seals protect the panel from slipping in the frame.
^ Clean the glass panels and other items.
To reassemble the door
^ Slide the middle panel back in; the printed material number
must be visible in the lower right hand corner.
^ Insert the side seals for the inner panel into the appropriate
grooves.
57
Cleaning and Care
^ Replace the inner panel with the printed text facing down.
Slide the panel back as far as it will go. Ensure that the side
seals do not slip.
Proper fit of the seal ensures that no vapors can penetrate
the door during cooking programs.
^ Put on the retainers and secure them.
To refit the door
^ Fit the door back on the hinges.
Make sure that the door is not tilted.
^ Open the door fully.
^ Turn the release levers until they click in the vertical
position.
It is essential that the release levers are locked again after
cleaning, otherwise the door could work itself loose from
the hinges and be damaged.
