Caring for the environment
Disposal of the packing
material
Disposing of your old
appliance
The transport and protective packaging
has been selected from materials which
are environmentally friendly for
disposal, and can normally be recycled.
Electrical and electronic appliances
often contain valuable materials. They
also contain specific materials,
compounds and components, which
were essential for their correct function
and safety. These could be hazardous
to human health and to the environment
if disposed of with your domestic waste
or if handled incorrectly. Please do not,
therefore, dispose of your old appliance
with your household waste.
Recycling the packaging reduces the
use of raw materials in the
manufacturing process and also
reduces the amount of waste in landfill
sites. 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.
Please dispose of it at your local
community waste collection / recycling
centre for electrical and electronic
appliances. You are also responsible for
deleting any personal data that may be
stored on the appliance prior to
disposal. Please ensure that your old
appliance poses no risk to children
while being stored prior to disposal.

your safety and may lead to appliance malfunctions. Do not open the
appliance housing under any circumstances.
 Before connecting the appliance to the power supply, ensure that
the connection data on the data plate (voltage and frequency) match
the mains electricity supply. This data must correspond in order to
avoid the risk of damage to the appliance. If in doubt, consult a
qualified electrician.
 Do not use multi-socket adapters and extension leads to connect
the microwave oven to the electricity supply. They are a fire hazard
and do not guarantee the required safety of the appliance.
10
Warning and Safety instructions
 The electrical safety of this microwave oven can only be
guaranteed when continuity is complete between it and an effective
earthing system. It is essential that this standard safety requirement
is met to avoid the risk of damage or electric shock due to a missing
or disconnected protective conductor. If in any doubt, please have
the electrical installation tested by a qualified electrician.
 Do not situate the appliance too close to an adjacent furniture
unit. To ensure adequate ventilation, a minimum gap of 5 cm is
required between the appliance and any neighbouring furniture or
walls. There must be a minimum gap of 19.5 cm between the top of
the appliance and anything above it.
 Unauthorised or incorrect repairs could cause personal injury or
damage to the appliance. Repairs should only be carried out by a
Miele authorised technician.
It is hazardous for anyone other than a competent person to carry
out any service or repair operation that involves the removal of a
cover which gives protection against exposure to microwave energy.
 Any repairs not performed by a Miele authorised technician will
void the warranty.
 During repairs or cleaning and maintenance, the microwave oven
must be disconnected from the mains power supply. It is only
completely isolated from the electricity supply when:
– the plug has been disconnected from the back of the appliance or
the appliance has been switched off at the wall socket and the plug
withdrawn.
Do not pull the mains connection cable but the mains plug to
disconnect your appliance from the mains electricity supply.
– the mains circuit breaker is switched off.
- the screw-out fuse is removed (in countries where this is
applicable).

when Miele replacement parts are used. Faulty components must
only be replaced by genuine Miele spare parts.
 If the appliance is installed behind a kitchen furniture door, it may
only be used with the furniture door open. Do not close the furniture
door while the appliance is in use. Heat and moisture can build up
behind the closed furniture door. This can result in damage to the
appliance and furniture unit. Leave the furniture door open until the
appliance has cooled down completely.
 If your microwave oven is built in with a lift-up door: do not bring
the door down into the closed position when the oven is in
operation.
 The appliance must not be used in a non-stationary location (e.g.
on a ship).
 Reliable and safe operation of this microwave oven can only be
assured if it has been connected to the mains electricity supply.
12
Warning and Safety instructions
Correct use
 Danger of burning! When grilling with or without the
microwave function, the microwave oven will get hot.
You could burn yourself on the oven interior walls, the grill
element, food, accessories or the oven door.
Wear oven gloves when placing food in the oven or removing it,
and when adjusting oven shelves etc. in a hot oven.
 Always ensure that food is sufficiently cooked or reheated.
The time required for this depends a number of factors, such as the
nature of the food, its initial temperature, the amount to be cooked
and recipe variations.
Some foods may contain micro-organisms which are only destroyed
by thorough cooking at sufficiently high temperatures (over 70 °C) for
long enough (a minimum of 10 minutes). Therefore when cooking or
reheating foods, e.g. poultry, it is particularly important that food is
fully cooked through. If in any doubt that a sufficiently high
temperature has been reached, continue reheating for a little longer.
 It is important that the temperature in the food being cooked is
evenly distributed and sufficiently high.
This can be achieved by stirring or turning the food, and observing a
sufficiently long standing time (see charts) which should be added to
the time needed for reheating, defrosting or cooking. During the
standing time the temperature is distributed evenly in the food.
 Always remember that times for cooking, reheating and defrosting
in a microwave oven are usually considerably shorter than with
traditional methods of cooking food.
Excessively long cooking durations can lead to food drying out and
burning, or could even cause it to catch fire. Fire hazard! There is
also a danger of fire if breadcrumbs, flowers, herbs etc. are dried in
the microwave oven. Do not dry these items in the microwave oven.
13
Warning and Safety instructions
 Cushions or pads filled with cherry kernels, wheat grain, lavender,
or gel, such as those used in aromatherapy can ignite when heated,
even after they have been removed from the microwave oven. Do not
heat these up in the microwave oven. Fire hazard!
 The microwave oven is not suitable for cleaning or disinfecting
items. Items can get extremely hot and there is a danger of burning
when the item is removed from the appliance. Fire hazard!
 The appliance can be damaged if it is used without food being
placed in it or if it is incorrectly loaded. Therefore do not use the
appliance to preheat crockery or to dry herbs or similar items.
 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.
 Pressure can build up when reheating food or drinks in sealed
containers, jars or bottles, which can cause them to explode. Never
cook or reheat food or liquids in sealed containers, jars or bottles.
With baby bottles, the screw top and teat must be taken off.
 Be careful when removing dishes from the appliance. Although
heat is not normally produced in the container itself by the
microwaves (apart from stoneware), heat transfer from the food to
the container may be considerable, making the container itself hot.
The dish is only warmed by the heat of the food. Before serving,
always check the temperature of the 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 heating food for babies, children, and the
elderly or infirm. After reheating food, especially food for babies
and small children, stir the food or shake the container and check
that the temperature does not pose any danger of burning. Double
check after it has been left to stand.
14
Warning and Safety instructions
 When heating liquids, milk, sauces etc. using microwave power,
the boiling point of the liquid may be reached without the production
of the typical bubbles. Liquids do 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 and scalding!
The formation of bubbles can be so strong that the pressure forces
the oven door open. Danger of injury and damage to the appliance!
Stir liquids well before heating. After heating, wait at least
20 seconds before removing the container from the oven. In
addition, during heating a glass rod or similar item, if available, can
be placed in the container.
 To avoid fuelling any flames, do not open the oven door if smoke
occurs in the oven interior.
Interrupt the process by switching the appliance off and disconnect
it from the electricity supply.
Do not open the door until the smoke has dispersed.
 Oils and fats can ignite if allowed to overheat. Never leave the
microwave oven unattended when cooking with oil or fats. Do not
use the appliance for deep frying. Never attempt to put out oil or fat
fires with water. Switch the microwave oven off and extinguish the
flames by leaving the door closed.
 Due to the high temperatures radiated, objects left near the
microwave oven when it is in use could catch fire. Do not use the
appliance to heat up the room.
 If using alcohol in your recipes, please be aware that high
temperatures can cause the alcohol to vaporise. The vapour can
catch fire on hot surfaces. Never heat undiluted alcohol in the
microwave, as it can easily ignite. Fire hazard!
15
Warning and Safety instructions
 Heating up food in closed containers e.g. tins or sealed jars,
results in an increase in pressure which can cause them to explode.
Do not use the microwave oven for bottling food or for heating up
food in tins.
 Food which is stored in the oven or left in it to be kept warm can
dry out and the moisture released can lead to corrosion damage in
the microwave oven. This can also cause damage to the control
panel, benchtop and surrounding kitchen furniture. Always cover
food that is left in the oven to keep warm.
 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 oven interior can get hot during use. Danger of burning! Clean
the oven interior and accessories as soon as it has cooled down.
Waiting too long can make cleaning unnecessarily difficult and in
some cases impossible. Stubborn soiling could damage the
microwave oven in certain circumstances and could even be
dangerous. Fire hazard!
Please refer to the relevant instructions in "Cleaning and care".
 Fire hazard! Plastic containers which are not suitable for use in
microwave ovens can be badly damaged and cause damage to the
appliance if used. Do not use any containers or cutlery made from or
containing metal, aluminium foil, lead crystal glassware,
temperature-sensitive plastics, wooden utensils or cutlery, metal
clips or plastic or paper covered wire ties. Do not use bowls with
milled rims, or plastic pots with the foil lid only partially removed (see
"Suitable containers for microwave use").
Using these items could result in damage to the container and/or
present a fire risk.
16
Warning and Safety instructions
 Disposable plastic containers must be specified by the
manufacturer as suitable for use in a microwave oven.
Do not leave the oven unattended when heating or cooking food in
disposable containers made of plastic, paper or other inflammable
materials.
 Heat-retaining packaging consists of, among other things, a thin
layer of aluminium foil. Microwaves are reflected by metal. This
reflected energy can, in turn, cause the outer paper covering to
become so hot that it ignites.
Do not use heat-retaining packaging for warming food in the
microwave oven, such as bags for grilled chicken.
 If you cook eggs without their shells using microwave power, the
yolks could explode due to the resulting pressure. Prick the yolk
several times before cooking to avoid this.
 Eggs heated in their shells using microwave power can burst,
even after they have been taken out of the oven. Eggs can only be
cooked in their shells in a specially designed egg-boiling device.
Do not reheat hard-boiled eggs in the microwave oven.
 Food with a thick skin or peel, such as tomatoes, sausages,
potatoes and aubergines can burst when heated. Pierce or score the
skin of these types of food several times to allow steam to escape.
 Dishes with hollow knobs or handles are not suitable for use in a
microwave oven. Moisture which has gathered in the hollow
recesses can cause pressure to build up and the items can explode
(this risk is reduced if the hollow recess is sufficiently ventilated). We
recommend that you do not use such dishes in the microwave oven.
 Do not use a thermometer containing mercury or liquid as these
are not suitable for use with very high temperatures and break very
easily.
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.
17
Warning and Safety instructions
 The steam from a steam cleaner could reach electrical
components and cause a short circuit. Do not use a steam cleaner to
clean the appliance.
The following applies for stainless steel surfaces:
 The surface is susceptible to scratching. Even magnets can cause
scratches.
Accessories
 Only use original Miele accessories. If other parts are used,
warranty, performance and product liability claims will be invalidated.
 The rack and gourmet plate supplied are designed for use with
microwave power and can be used for grilling with or without the
microwave function.
They must not, however, be used at the same time, as this would
damage the gourmet plate. Always place the gourmet plate directly
on the turntable.
 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 or without the
microwave function).
Danger of burning!
 Do not use the cover with the gourmet plate, as the cover will get
too hot.
Optional accessories
 Do not place the hot glass tray (or any other hot cooking
container) on a cold surface, such as a tiled or granite benchtop. The
glass tray or container could crack or shatter. Use a suitable heatresistant mat or pot rest.
18
Description of the functions
How the microwave oven
works
In a microwave oven there is a highfrequency tube called a magnetron.
This converts electrical energy into
electromagnetic waves (microwaves).
These microwaves are distributed
evenly throughout the oven interior, and
are reflected off the metal appliance
walls. This enables the microwaves to
reach the food from all sides and heat it
up. Microwave distribution is improved
with the turntable engaged.
In order for microwaves to reach the
food, they must be able to penetrate the
cooking container being used.
Microwaves can pass through
porcelain, glass, cardboard and
plastics, but not metal. Therefore do not
use utensils that are made of metal or
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.
The heat is produced directly in the
food. This has the following
advantages:
– Food can generally be cooked without
adding liquid or cooking oil, or with just
a little water or oil.
– 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 into the food. All food
contains water molecules which, when
subjected to microwave energy, start to
oscillate 2.5 billion times a second. This
vibration creates heat. It first starts
developing around the outside of the
food and then slowly penetrates
towards the centre. The higher the
water content of the food, the faster it is
heated or cooked.
19
Modes of operation
What can the microwave oven
do?
Microwave oven functions
In the microwave oven, food is cooked,
reheated or defrosted quickly.
Suitable for defrosting, reheating and
cooking.
You can use the microwave oven in the
following ways:
Grilling
– Food can be defrosted, reheated or
cooked by entering a power setting and
a duration.
Microwave Solo mode
Ideal for grilling thin cuts of meat, e.g.
steak or sausages.
Combination mode (Microwave +
Grill)
– Deep-frozen, ready-made meals can
be defrosted and then heated or
cooked.
Ideal for browning dishes with toppings.
The microwave cooks the food, and the
grill browns it.
– The microwave oven can also be used
for other tasks, e.g. for proving dough,
melting chocolate and butter, dissolving
gelatine etc.
Automatic programmes
You can choose from the following
automatic programmes:
- five defrosting programmes
(: Ad 1 to Ad 5)
- four cooking programmes for frozen
food
(: Ac 1 to Ac 4 )
- and eight cooking programmes for
fresh food
(: Ac 1 to Ac 8).
These programmes are weight
dependent, i.e. you enter the weight of
the food and then the cooking duration
is calculated automatically.
The weight of the food can be
displayed as metric (g) or imperial (lb)
(see "Changing settings").
20
Suitable containers for microwave use
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.
 Containers and lids with hollow
– are reflected by metal,
handles or knobs in which moisture
can collect are unsuitable, unless the
hollowed areas are adequately
vented.
Without vent holes pressure can
build up, causing the container to
crack or shatter. Danger of injury!
Metal
– pass through glass, porcelain, plastic
and cardboard,
– and are absorbed by food.
Metal containers, aluminium foil,
metal cutlery, and china with
metallic decoration such as gold rims
or cobalt blue must not be used with
microwave mode.
Metal reflects microwaves and
obstructs the cooking process.
Do not use containers where the foil
lid has not been completely removed
as small pieces of foil can cause
sparking.
Exceptions:
 Fire hazard!
– Ready-meals in aluminium foil dishes
Containers which are not suitable for
use in microwave ovens can be
badly damaged and cause damage
to the appliance if used.
Please observe the information on
suitable containers for microwave
use.
These can be defrosted and reheated in
the microwave oven, if recommended
by the manufacturer. Important: remove
the lid and make sure the foil dish is at
least 2 cm from the oven walls at all
times. However, food is only heated
from the top. Transferring the food from
21
Suitable containers for microwave use
the aluminium foil container to a dish
suitable for microwave use will result in
a more even heat distribution.
Do not place aluminium foil dishes
on the rack, in case the dish sparks
or arcs.
Porcelain
Porcelain is a suitable material.
However do not use porcelain with
gold or silver edging, or items with
hollow knobs or handles.
– Pieces of aluminium foil
Earthenware
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.
Decorated earthenware is only suitable
if the decoration is beneath an all-over
glaze.
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.
Glazes and colours
Some dishes have glazes and
colours containing metallic
substances.
These dishes are unsuitable for
microwave use.
Glassware
Heat-resistant glass or ceramic glass is
ideal for use in the microwave oven.
Crystal glass is unsuitable as it
usually contains lead which could
cause the glass to crack in the
microwave.
22
Earthenware can get very hot and
may crack.
Danger of burning!
Wear oven gloves when removing
the dishes from the oven.
Wood
Water contained in wood evaporates
during the cooking programme.
This causes the wood to dry and
crack.
Wooden dishes are therefore not
suitable.
Plastics
 Plastics must be heat-resistant
to a minimum of 110 °C.
Otherwise the plastic may melt and
fuse with the food.
Use plastic containers only with
Microwave Solo mode.
Special plastic utensils designed for use
in microwave ovens are available from
retail outlets.
Melamine is not suitable for use in this
oven. Melamine absorbs microwave
energy and gets hot. When purchasing
Suitable containers for microwave use
plasticware, make sure that it is suitable
for use in a microwave oven.
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 to allow the
steam to escape. This prevents a
build-up of pressure from forming
and the bag from bursting.
Special bags are available for steam
cooking which do not need to be
pierced. Please follow the instructions
given on the packet.
 Fire hazard!
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.
Disposable containers
Only those plastic disposable
containers which are specified by the
manufacturer as suitable for use in a
microwave oven may be used.
Testing containers
If in doubt as to whether glass,
earthenware or porcelain plates or

(protection against overheating).
The time required depends on:
– the initial temperature of the food.
Food taken straight from the
refrigerator takes longer to cook than
food which has been kept at room
temperature.
– the type and texture of the food.
Fresh vegetables contain more water
and cook more quickly than stored
vegetables.
"door" message
The "door" message in the display is a
reminder that the appliance should not
be used without food inside it.
Operating the appliance without food

to open the door and make sure there is
food in the microwave oven before
starting a process. You cannot start a
process until you do this.
– the frequency of stirring or turning
the food.
Frequent stirring or turning heats the
food more evenly, and it is therefore
ready in a shorter time.

Operation - Grilling
The grill has four settings: grill solo and
three combination settings where the
grill is used with one of three microwave
power levels.
If the total grilling time required is less
than 15 minutes, the grill should be preheated 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, medium or well
done result.
When grilling directly on the rack, a
heat-resistant, microwave-safe
container should be placed underneath
the rack to catch any fat or juices.
 The rack and container (and
glass tray) will become hot during
cooking.
Danger of burning!
Wear oven gloves when removing
the dishes from the oven.
The container (and glass tray) and grill
rack will be easier to clean if washed in
soapy water immediately after grilling.
The area on the ceiling around the grill
becomes discoloured over time. This is
an unavoidable consequence of use,
and does not impair the function of the
appliance in any way.
Grilling without the Microwave
function
Ideal for grilling thin cuts of meat, e.g.
steak or sausages.
The gourmet plate supplied is not
suitable for catching fat.
It could overheat when empty. This
would damage the coating.
The glass tray available from Miele
as an optional accessory is ideal for
this.
 Place the food in a suitable dish.
 Place the rack and a heat-resistant,
microwave-safe container or the
glass tray, or the container with the
food to be cooked on the turntable.

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 2 to 3 tbsp. vinegar or lemon juice.
Heat for 5 minutes at 450 W + Grill .
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.
Metallic or sharp objects can
damage the non-stick coating.
Therefore do not cut food up directly
on the plate.
Use wooden or plastic utensils to
mix or turn food.
Searing/browning food
 Oils and fats can ignite if allowed
to overheat.
Fire hazard!
Never leave the appliance
unattended when cooking with oil or
fats.
 Only use very little oil when grilling
with this dish. The anti-stick coating
will prevent food from sticking to it,
and this way you can reduce the
amount of heated oil used.
36
 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.
Sparking can damage the gourmet
plate and the oven interior.
Do not place the gourmet plate on
the rack. Make sure there is a gap of
approx. 2 cm between the gourmet
plate and the interior walls of the
microwave oven so that sparking
cannot occur.
 Heat the plate up at 450 W + Grill 
for up to max. 5 minutes.
Do not overheat the empty gourmet
plate.
This would damage the coating.
For this reason do not place the
gourmet plate under the rack to
catch the fat when grilling.
If using oil for grilling, 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.
 Eggs can explode.
Do not use the gourmet plate to
cook eggs or reheat cooked eggs.

weight of the food. The appliance
automatically calculates the duration
according to the weight entered.
After cooking, allow the food to stand at
room temperature for the suggested
number of minutes ("standing time") to
allow the heat to be distributed evenly
through the food.
Automatic defrosting
There are five programmes for
defrosting different types of food
( button). The standing time for
programme Ad 3 is up to 30 minutes,
depending on weight, and approx.
10 minutes for the remaining
programmes.
Automatic cooking
There are four programmes for frozen
food and eight programmes for fresh
food.
The standing time for each of these
programmes is approx. 2 minutes.
 The cover can withstand
temperatures of up to 110 °C.
At higher temperatures the plastic
may distort and fuse with the food.
The cover supplied must only be
used with Microwave Solo mode. On
no account must the cover be used if
the grill is switched on, i.e. with
programmes AC 4 to AC 8.

Reheating
Select the following microwave power
levels to reheat food:
Drinks
900 W
Food
600 W
Food for babies and
children
450 W
 Food for babies and children
must not be too hot.
Reheat it for only 1/2 to 1 minute at
450 W.
Tips on reheating
Always use a lid or cover for reheating
food, except when a crispy finish is
required, e.g. crumbed poultry/meat.
 Never reheat sealed jars.
Remove the lid from baby food jars.
With baby bottles, the screw top and
teat must be taken off.
Flash boiling can be avoided by
stirring liquids before heating them.
After heating, wait at least
20 seconds before removing the
container from the oven. In addition,
a glass rod or similar item, if
available, can be placed in the
container during heating.
Never reheat hard boiled eggs in the
microwave, even without the shell.
The eggs can burst.
Food taken straight from the refrigerator
takes longer to cook than food which
has been kept at room temperature.
54
The time required depends on the
nature of the 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 around the outside.
After reheating
Be careful when removing the 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. This enables the heat to
spread evenly through the food.
 After reheating food, especially
food for babies and small children,
stir the food or shake the container
and check that the temperature does
not pose any danger of burning.
Double check after it has been left to
stand.
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 when the food is hot reduce
the power level to 450 W for more
gentle continued cooking.
For dishes such as rice pudding 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 durations 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. This helps it cook more
evenly.
 It is very important to make sure
that food which goes off easily, such
as fish, poultry and minced meat is
cooked sufficiently.
When cooking these types of food,
ensure that the stated cooking
durations are observed.
 Eggs heated in their shells can
burst, even after they have been
taken out of the oven.
Eggs can only be cooked in their
shells in the microwave oven in a
specially designed egg-boiling
device available from specialist
shops.
 If you cook eggs without their
shells using microwave power, the
yolks could explode due to the
resulting pressure.
Eggs can be cooked without their
shells in the microwave oven only if
the yolk membrane has been
punctured several times first.
After cooking
Be careful when removing the 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. This enables the heat to
spread evenly through the food.
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.
55
Defrosting
 Do not refreeze food once it has
Defrosting and cooking
thawed.
Defrosted food should be used up as
quickly as possible, as food soon
loses it nutritional value and goes off.
Defrosted food may only be re-frozen
after it has been cooked.
Deep-frozen food can be defrosted and
immediately heated or cooked.
Select the following microwave power
settings to defrost food:
– 80 W
for defrosting very delicate food, e.g.
cream, butter, gateau and cheese.
– 150 W
for defrosting other types of food.
Remove the food from its packaging
and place in a microwave-proof
container. Defrost uncovered. Turn, stir
or separate the food about halfway
through the defrosting time.
To defrost meat, unpack the frozen
meat and place it on an upturned plate
in a glass or porcelain container so that
the meat juice can run off and be
collected. Turn halfway through
defrosting.
 It is particularly important to
observe food hygiene rules when
defrosting poultry. Do not use the
liquid from the defrosted poultry.
Pour it away, and wash the tray, the
sink and your hands.
Risk of salmonella poisoning!
Meat, poultry and fish do not need to
be fully defrosted before cooking.
Defrost until the food has started to
thaw. The surface will then be
sufficiently thawed to take herbs and
seasoning.
56
First select 900 W followed by 450 W.
Remove the food from its packaging
and place in a covered microwaveproof dish for defrosting and reheating
or cooking. Exception: Minced meat
should be left uncovered while cooking.
Food with a high water content such as
soup, 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 and reheating or
cooking allow the food to stand at room
temperature for a few minutes to enable
the heat to spread evenly through the
food.
Bottling
You can preserve small portions of fruit
and vegetables in jars with your
microwave. Prepare the food in the
usual way.
Fill the jars no more than up to 2 cm
below the rim.
The amount of time required for the
contents in all jars to start bubbling
evenly is as follows:
1 jar
approx. 3 minutes
2 jars
approx. 6 minutes
 Seal the jars with clear adhesive
3 jars
approx. 9 minutes
tape or with clips suitable for
microwave use.
4 jars
approx.
12 minutes
Never use metal clips or jars with
screw-top lids.
This is sufficient time for bottling fruit
and cucumbers.
Do not use tins for preserving food.
Pressure will build up. This can
cause the tins to explode. Danger of
injury and damage to the appliance!
For vegetables, reduce the power to
450 W once the produce starts boiling.
Cook
For best results do not use more than
1
four /2- litre jars at a time when
bottling.
– carrots for approx. 15 minutes
– peas for approx. 25 minutes.
After bottling
Remove jars from the oven, cover with
a towel and leave to stand in a draughtfree location for approx. 24 hours.
Remove the clips or the adhesive tape
and make sure that all jars are sealed
properly.
 Place the jars on the turntable.
 Set to 900 W and bring the jar
contents to the boil.
The time required depends on:
– the initial temperature of the
contents.
– the number of jars.

Cleaning and care
Disconnect the microwave oven from
the power supply before cleaning.
Under no circumstances should a
steam cleaner be used to clean the
microwave oven.
The steam could reach live electrical
components and cause a short
circuit.
Housing, oven interior and
inside of the door
 The oven interior can get hot
during use. Danger of burning!
Waiting too long can make cleaning
unnecessarily difficult and in some
cases impossible.
Stubborn soiling could damage the
microwave oven in certain
circumstances and could even be
dangerous. Fire hazard!
Clean the oven interior as soon as it
has cooled down.
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 stainless steel cleaner (available
from Miele).
60
Do not remove the cover of the
microwave outlet inside the oven,
nor the film covering the inside of the
door.
Do not let water or any object find its
way into or block the air vents in the
door frame.
Do not use too much water on the
cloth or sponge, otherwise water
may get into openings.
Do not use scouring agents. These
will scratch.
To neutralise odours in the microwave
oven, put a cup of water with some
lemon juice in the appliance and
simmer for a few minutes.
The door should be kept clean at all
times and checked at regular intervals
for any signs of damage.
 If any damage to the door or the
door seals is noticed, the appliance
must not be used until the fault has
been repaired by a Miele authorised
service technician.
Cleaning and care
To clean the interior:
 Remove the turntable, and wash in
the dishwasher or by hand.
Clean the front with a soft sponge and a
solution of warm water and a little
washing-up liquid. Wipe dry using a
soft cloth.
A clean, damp microfibre cloth without
cleaning agent can also be used.
All surfaces of this appliance are
susceptible to scratching.
Scratches on glass surfaces could
cause a breakage in certain
circumstances.
Contact with unsuitable cleaning
agents can alter or discolour all
surfaces.
Please observe the following
cleaning instructions.
To avoid damaging the surfaces of
the appliance, do not use:
– cleaning agents containing soda,
ammonia, acids or chlorides
 Always keep the roller ring
underneath it and the oven floor
clean. Otherwise the turntable will not
turn smoothly.
 Clean the area between the turntable
and the roller ring.
Do not turn the turntable and/or
carrier manually, as this could
damage the drive motor.
Appliance front
Soiling that is left too long might
become impossible to remove and
could cause external surfaces to alter
or discolour.
Remove any soiling on the front of
the appliance straight away.
– 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
– dirt erasers
– sharp metal scrapers.
61
Cleaning and care
To help prevent re-soiling, a
conditioning agent for stainless steel
can be used (available from Miele or the
Miele online shop at shop.miele.com).
Use a soft cloth to apply sparingly with
an even pressure.
Accessories supplied
Cover
Rinse the cover after each use.
The cover can be washed in the
dishwasher. However, it may discolour
when in contact with natural dyes, e.g.
from carrots, tomatoes or ketchup.
This discolouration is irreversible but
does not affect the stability of the
cover.
Rack
Wash and dry the rack after each use. It
is dishwasher-proof. Remove stubborn
soiling with a stainless steel cleaner.
Gourmet plate
Clean the gourmet plate with hot water
and a cloth with a little washing-up
liquid to remove any grease.
Do not use steel wool, abrasive
sponges, or aggressive cleaning
agents.
Do not clean the gourmet plate in the
dishwasher.
If the gourmet plate has been used to
cook food with a strong aroma, you can
neutralise any odours by adding some
water and lemon juice to the gourmet
plate and heating it in the microwave
oven at maximum power for
2-3 minutes. Rinse the gourmet plate
afterwards with clean water.
62
Optional accessories
Glass tray
The glass tray is dishwasher-safe.
Do not use abrasive cleaning agents.
Problem solving guide
Many malfunctions and minor faults that can occur in daily operation can be
corrected without contacting Miele. If after reading this guide, you cannot remedy
the problem yourself, please call Miele (see the end of this booklet for details).
Please note, however, that a call-out charge will be applied to unnecessary service
visits where the problem could have been rectified as described in this problem
solving guide.

 Set the correct time of day.
. . food cools down too
quickly
In a 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 recommended to select a lower power
level and lengthen the duration.
64
Sparks are being created by the use of crockery with
a metallic finish.
 Please observe the information on suitable
containers for microwave use.

After sales service
Contact in case of fault
In the event of any faults which you
cannot remedy yourself, please contact
Miele.
The contact details for Miele can be
found at the end of these operating
instructions.
When contacting Miele, please quote
the model and serial number of your
appliance.
This information can be found on the
data plate, which is located on the
inside of the appliance front.
Warranty
The manufacturer's warranty for this
appliance is 2 years.
For further information, please refer to
your warranty booklet.
66
Electrical connection
 Before connecting the appliance,
ensure that it has not been damaged
in any way.
Do not use a damaged appliance.
The microwave must be connected to a
suitably earthed socked (220-240 V, 50
Hz).
The connection must comply with
national and local safety regulations.
Ensure that the plug and switched
socket are accessible at all times.
When switched off there must be an allpole contact gap of 3 mm in the isolator
switch (including switch, circuit
breakers and relays).
The connection data can be found on
the data plate located on the front of
the oven interior or on the back of the
appliance. Please ensure these match
the household electricity supply.
If the connection cable is damaged, it
must be replaced by a Miele authorised
service technician in order to avoid a
hazard.
The appliance must not be connected
to the inverter of an autonomous power
supply such as e.g. a solar power
system. When the appliance is
switched on, power surges could result
in a safety switch-off. This can damage
the electronic unit.
The appliance must not be used with
so-called energy saving devices
either. These reduce the amount of
energy supplied to the appliance,
causing it to overheat.
67
Installation
When installing the appliance ensure
that there is unhindered ventilation to
and from the appliance both
underneath and to the rear.
Do not block the ventilation gaps or
the gap between the base of the
appliance and the benchtop surface.
A minimum installation height of
85 cm must be maintained.
The microwave oven can be placed on
a benchtop.
To ensure adequate ventilation, a
minimum gap of 5 cm is required
between the appliance and any
neighbouring furniture or walls. There
must be a minimum gap of 19.5 cm
between the top of the appliance and
anything above it.
Do not situate the appliance too
close to an adjacent furniture unit.
If the appliance is installed behind a
kitchen furniture door, it may only be
used with the furniture door open.
Heat and moisture can build up
behind the closed furniture door. This
can result in damage to the
appliance and furniture unit.
Do not close the furniture door while
the appliance is in use.
Leave the furniture door open until
the appliance has cooled down
completely.
If your microwave oven is built in
with a lift-up door:
Do not lower the door when the
microwave oven is in operation.
