9
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Technical safety
 Installation, repair and maintenance work should be performed by
a Miele authorized service technician in accordance with national
and local safety regulations and the provided installation instructions. Contact Miele’s Technical Service Department for examination,
repair or adjustment. Repairs and other work by unauthorized persons could be dangerous and may void the warranty.
 A damaged appliance is dangerous. Check the appliance for any
visible damage. Never install or attempt to use a damaged appliance.
 Reliable and safe operation of this steam oven can only be assured if it has been connected to the power supply.
 Be certain your appliance is properly installed and grounded by a
qualified technician. To guarantee the electrical safety of this appliance, continuity must exist between the appliance and an effective
grounding system. It is imperative that this basic safety requirement
be met. If there is any doubt, have the electrical system of the house
checked by a qualified electrician.
 Before connecting the appliance to the power supply, ensure that
the connection data on the data plate (voltage and frequency) match
the power supply.
This data must correspond in order to avoid the risk of damage to
the appliance. Consult a qualified electrician if in any doubt.
 Do not use an extension cord to connect this appliance to the
power supply. Extension cords do not guarantee the required safety
of the appliance.
 For safety reasons, this appliance may only be used after it has
been built in.
 This steam oven must not be used in a non-stationary location
(e.g. on a ship).
10
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
 Tampering with electrical connections or components and mechanical parts is highly dangerous to the user and can cause operational faults. Do not open the outer casing of the appliance.
 While the appliance is under warranty, repairs should only be performed by a Miele-authorized service technicians. Work by unqualified persons could be dangerous and may void the warranty.
 Defective components should be replaced by Miele original parts
only. Only with these parts can the manufacturer guarantee the
safety of the appliance.
 If the plug has been removed or the power cord is not supplied
with a plug, the steam oven must be connected to the power supply
by a suitably qualified electrician.
 If the power cord is damaged, it must be replaced with a special
connection cable type H 05 VV-F (PVC insulated). See "Electrical
connection."
 Before installation, maintenance, and repair work, the steam oven
must be disconnected from the electrical supply. It is only completely isolated from the electrical supply if: the fuse has been removed (where applicable), the main circuit breaker has been tripped,
or the power cord has been unplugged from the wall outlet. Always
be sure to pull the plug not the cord.
 If the steam oven is installed behind a cabinet door, do not close
the door while the appliance is in operation. Heat and moisture can
build up behind the closed door and cause damage to the range and
to the surrounding cabinets and flooring. Do not close the door until
the appliance has completely cooled down.
 Do not repair or replace any part of the appliance unless specifically recommended in the manual. All other servicing should be reffered to a qualified technician.
11
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
 Do not operate any appliance with a damaged cord or plug, or if
the appliance has been damaged in any manner. Contact Miele’s
Technical Service Department.
12
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Proper use
 Danger of burning. The steam oven becomes hot when in use.
You could burn yourself on the heating elements, oven interior,
cooked food, oven accessories or hot steam. Use pot holders when
placing food in the oven or removing it and when adjusting oven
shelves etc. in a hot oven. Take care when putting cooking pans into
the oven or removing them not to spill the contents.
 Use only dry, heat-resistant potholders. Moist or damp potholders
used on hot surfaces may result in steam burns. Do not let potholders come in contact with oil or grease. Do not substitute dish towels
or other bulky items for potholders. Do not let potholders touch hot
heating elements.
 Do not heat up food in closed containers e.g. tins or sealed jars in
the steam oven, as pressure will build up in the container, causing it
to explode.
 Plastic containers which are not suitable for use in an oven can
melt at high temperatures and can even damage the steam oven or
catch fire.
Only use plastic containers which are declared by the manufacturer
as being suitable for use in a steam oven. Follow the manufacturer's
instructions on use. If you want to use plastic containers for steaming food make sure that they are temperature resistant to 210°F /
100°C and steam resistant. Any other plastic containers could melt,
become brittle or break when subjected to heat.
 Food which is left in the oven to be kept hot can dry out and the
moisture released can lead to corrosion damage in the appliance. Do
not use the steam oven for keeping food warm and do not use utensils in the appliance which could corrode.
 Do not leave the appliance door open unnecessarily as someone
may trip over it or be injured by it.
13
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
 The door can support a maximum weight of 22 lbs (10 kg). Do not
sit, lean or place heavy items on the open oven door. Also be sure
nothing can get trapped between the door and the oven cavity. The
steam oven could get damaged.
 Oil and fat can ignite if overheated. Never leave the steam oven
unattended when cooking with oil and fat.
If it does ignite do not put the flames out with water. Switch the
steam oven off immediately and then suffocate the flames by keeping the oven door closed.
 Smother the fire or flames, or use a dry chemical extinguishing
agent or foam fire extinguisher.
 Due to the high temperatures radiated, objects left near the steam
oven when it is in use could catch fire.
Do not use the steam oven to heat up the room.
 Broiling food for an excessively long time can cause it to dry out
with the risk of catching fire.
Do not exceed recommended broiling times.
 Some foods dry out very quickly and can be ignited by high broiling temperatures. Do not use broiling functions for crisping rolls or
bread or to dry flowers or herbs. Instead use the Convection
Plus  or Surround  functions.
 To avoid fueling any flames, do not open the appliance door if you
see smoke coming from the food in the oven interior. Interrupt the
current process by turning off the appliance and disconnecting it
from the power. Do not open the door until the smoke has dissipated.
 Use caution when using alcohol in your recipes. Alcohol evaporates at high temperatures but may, in rare circumstances, combust
on the hot heating elements.
 Never cover the floor of the oven with aluminum foil, or place oven
dishes, pans, saucepans or trays directly onto the floor of the oven.
14
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
 Never use the steam oven without a drain filter as large food
residues may block the drain and the pump.
 To prevent the risk of damage, do not leave the roast probe in the
oven cavity when it is not being used.
 When using an electrical appliance, e.g., a hand-held mixer, near
the steam oven, make sure that the power cord does not get caught
in the door. The insulation on the cord could become damaged, giving rise to an electric shock hazard.
 Do not operate the appliance without the lamp cover. Steam could
attack the electrical components and cause a short circuit. Steam
could also damage the electrical components.
 The steam oven should be installed at a safe height for users to
safely access all cooking levels and pans. Otherwise spills could
cause burns or scalding and children may be put at risk by the hot
appliance door.
 Flammable materials should not be stored in an oven or in the
vicinity of the cooktop.
 Open the door carefully to allow hot air or steam to escape before
placing or removing food.
 Keep the oven vent ducts open.
 Wear proper apparel - Loose-fitting or hanging garments should
never be worn while using the appliance.
 To prevent burns, always place oven racks at their desired height
while the steam oven is cool. If the rack must be moved while the
oven is hot, do not let pot holders touch hot heating elements.
15
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
 Caution: Heating elements may be hot even though they are not
glowing. Interior surfaces of an steam oven become hot enough to
cause burns. External parts of the steam oven such as the door
glass, vents, and the control panel can become hot. During and after
use, do not touch, or let clothing or other flammable materials come
into contact with heating elements or interior surfaces of the steam
oven until they have had sufficient time to cool.
16
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Cleaning and care
 Do not use a steam cleaner to clean this oven.
Steam could penetrate electrical components and cause a short circuit.
 Scratches on the door glass can cause the glass to break.
Do not use abrasive cleaners, hard sponges, brushes or sharp metal
tools to clean the door glass.
 The side runners can be removed for cleaning purposes (see
"Cleaning and care").
Ensure that they are replaced correctly and do not use the oven
without them in place.
 To avoid corrosion on the stainless steel surfaces of the Speed
Oven, remove any splashes on the interior walls of the oven from
food or liquids containing salt.
Accessories
 Use only genuine original Miele parts. If parts or accessories from
other manufacturers are used, the warranty will become void.
 Only use the Miele roast probe supplied with this oven. If it is
faulty, it must only be replaced with a Miele genuine roast probe.
 The plastic on the roast probe can melt at very high temperatures.
Do not use the roast probe when using the broil functions (exception:
Convection Broil ). Do not store the roast probe in the oven if it is
not in use.
 The perforated and solid cooking pans will be damaged by high
temperatures! Use them only in modes and programs that work exclusively with steam.

temperature in the food, enabling the
temperature during the cooking process
to be monitored simply and accurately.
Temperature / Core temperature
Some modes offer a recommended
temperature. The recommended temperature can be changed for a single
cooking program or cooking step, or
permanently within a specific area (see
"Settings – Recommended temperatures").
It is also possible to change the core
temperature for a single cooking program or cooking step within the specified area.
Description of functions
Moisture content
Cooking duration
The Combi Steam and Reheat modes use
a combination of oven heat and moisture. You can alter the moisture/humidity level within a given range for an individual cooking program or a cooking
stage.
Depending on the function, you can set
a cooking duration of between 1 minute
and 6, 10 or 12 hours.
The duration of the MasterChef, Maintenance and Menu Cooking programs is
set at the factory and cannot be altered.
Depending on the setting for the program, either moisture or fresh air is injected into the oven. If the humidity
level is set to 0%, the maximum
amount of air will be injected and no
moisture. If the level is set to 100%, air
will not be injected into the oven and
the maximum amount of moisture will
be injected.
With the Steam Cooking function and
programs that use steam alone, the
cooking duration does not start to
count down until the set temperature
has been reached. It begins immediately with all other functions and programs.
Some food gives off moisture during
the cooking process. This moisture
from the food also controls the amount
of moisture needed. If the required
amount of moisture is very low and the
food already contains a lot of water the
steam generator may not be activated
at all.
You will hear a pumping sound when
the appliance is turned on, during use
and after turning it off. This is the sound
of water being pumped through the
system and is quite normal.
Noises
When the steam oven is in use, you will
hear a fan noise.

Description of functions
Preheating phase
Oven interior lighting
During the preheating phase the display
will show the temperature in the cooking compartment as it rises and PreHeating in all programs except for MasterChef, Menu Cooking, and Maintenance.
The oven light has been set at the factory to go out when cooking starts.
During steam cooking, the duration of
the preheating phase will depend on the
quantity and the temperature of the
food. In general this phase will last for
approx. 5 minutes. The duration will be
longer if you are preparing refrigerated
or frozen food.
If you want it to stay on all the time the
oven is on you will need to alter the default setting (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.
Cooking phase
The oven lighting gives off heat. If you
are operating the combi steam oven at
a temperature below 125°F (50°C), the
oven compartment lighting switches off
automatically.
The cooking phase begins when the set
temperature is reached. During the
cooking phase, the time left will be
shown on the display.
If the "Light" button on the control
panel is pressed, the oven compartment lighting will come on for 15 seconds.
Steam reduction
If cooking is performed in a certain temperature range during steam cooking
and combination cooking, the steam reduction function switches on automatically at the end of the cooking program.
This reduces the amount of steam
which escapes from the appliance
when the door is opened at the end of
the cooking duration. Steam Reduction
will appear in the display in addition to
Program Finished.
This function can be switched off if you
wish (see "Settings - Steam reduction").

Setting the water hardness
level
The steam oven is factory set for Hard
water. It must be adjusted local water
hardness to ensure trouble-free operation and to ensure that descaling is carried out at the correct interval. The
harder the water, the more often it will
need to be descaled.
 Check the hardness of your local water supply and adjust the water hardness as necessary (see "Settings Water hardness").
 Clean the universal tray and wire

soap and then dry thoroughly with a
soft cloth.
29
Before using for the first time
Setting the correct boiling
point for water
Before cooking food for the first time,
you must set the boiling point for water,
as this varies depending on the altitude
of the installation location of the appliance. This procedure also flushes out
the waterways.
This procedure must be carried out
to ensure efficient functioning of your
appliance.
Only use cold tap water (less than
68°F / 20°C). Never use distilled or
mineral water or other liquids.
 Remove the water container and fill it
to the "max" marker.
 Push the water container into the appliance until it engages.
 You should then run the Steam Cooking program at 210°F / 100°C for
15 minutes. Proceed as described in
"Operation ‒ Steam cooking."
Resetting the correct boiling point for
water
If you move, the appliance will need to
be re-set for the new altitude if this differs from the old one by 984 ft (300 m)
or more. To do this, descale the appliance (see "Cleaning and care – Maintenance – Descaling").
30
Heating up the steam oven
 To remove the grease from the ring
heating element, heat the appliance
up with nothing in it at 400°F / 200°C

30 minutes.
Proceed as described in "Operation ‒
Functions without steam."
There will be a slight smell the first
time the heating element is heated up.
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
kitchen is well ventilated during this
operation.

General notes
The "General Notes" section contains
general information. You will find more
detailed information about particular
foods and how to cook them in the
other sections.
The advantages of cooking
with steam
Almost all vitamins and minerals are retained as the food is not immersed in
water.
Cooking with steam also retains the
true taste of the food better than conventional cooking. We therefore recommend seasoning the food after it has
been cooked. Food also retains its
fresh, original color.
Suitable containers
Cooking pans
This steam oven is supplied with stainless steel cooking pans. Other containers, in a variety of sizes, both perforated
and solid, are available as optional extras (see "Optional accessories"). This
enables you to choose the most suitable container for the food you are preparing.
Using your own cookware
You can also use your own cookware.
However, please note the following:
– It must be suitable for using in an
oven and must be steam resistant.
Plastic cookware can only be used
for steam cooking if the manufacturer
has stated that they are suitable for
such use.
– Thick-sided dishes made from porcelain, china or stoneware, for example,
are not as suitable for steam cooking.
They do not conduct heat well and as
a result cooking durations will be
considerably longer than those given
in the charts.
– Place the cookware on the rack or in
a suitable cooking container and not
on the oven floor.
– Ensure that there is a gap between
the upper rim of the dish and the top
of the cooking compartment to allow
sufficient steam into the container.
It is best to use perforated pans for
Steam Cooking. The steam can reach
the food from all sides and the food is
cooked evenly.
61
General notes
Shelf level
Cooking duration
You can select any shelf level. You can
also cook on several levels at the same
time. This will not alter the cooking duration.
In general, the cooking durations for
cooking with steam are the same as for
cooking food in a saucepan. More information about any factors which may affect the cooking duration is given in the
relevant sections.
When using more than one deep cooking container at the same time, it is best
to offset them on their runners and to
leave at least one level free in between
them.
Always insert cooking containers and
the rack between the rails of the shelf
level supports so that they cannot tip.
Frozen food
The heating up phase for frozen food is
longer than for fresh food. The greater
the quantity of frozen food, the longer
the preheating phase.
Temperature
A maximum temperature of 210°F /
100°C is reached when steam cooking
is taking place. Most types of food will
cook at this temperature. Some more
delicate types of food, such as soft
fruit, must be cooked at lower temperatures as otherwise they will burst. More
information is given in the relevant section.
62
The quantity of food does not affect the
cooking time. 1 lb of potatoes will take
the same time to cook as ½ lb.
The durations given in the charts are
guidelines only. We recommend selecting the shorter cooking duration quoted
to start with. If food is not cooked sufficiently after the shorter time it can be
put back in the oven and cooked for
longer.
Cooking with liquid
When cooking with liquid only fill the
cooking pan ²/₃ full to prevent the liquid
spilling when the cooking pan is removed from the oven.
Your own recipes - Steam
cooking
Food and recipes which are prepared in
pot or a pan can also be cooked in the
steam oven. The cooking times in the
steam oven will be the same. Please
note that food will not be brown or crisp
when cooking with steam.
General notes
Wire oven rack / universal tray
Use the rack above the universal tray
when roasting or broiling. The cooking
liquids will collect in the tray and can
then be used to make a gravy or sauce.
If you are using the universal tray with
the rack on top, e.g. for broiling, insert
the tray between the rails of the side
runners and the rack will automatically
slide in above them. When removing
them from the oven pull both parts out
together.
Non-tip safety notches
The wire oven rack and universal tray
have non-tip safety notches in the middle which prevent them being pulled
right out when they only need to be partially pulled out. The tray and rack can
then only be taken out of the oven by
raising them upwards and then pulling
them out.
63
Steam cooking
Vegetables
Fresh food
Prepare fresh vegetables in the usual
way, i.e. wash, clean and cut them up.
Frozen food
Frozen vegetables do not need to be
defrosted beforehand unless the vegetables have been frozen together in a
block.
To cook frozen vegetables, program the
same time as for fresh ones.
Break up the larger, frozen together
pieces. Please refer to the cooking
times on the packaging.
Cooking pan
Food such as peas or asparagus
spears, which have little or no space
between them, will take longer to cook
because the steam has less space to
work in. For an even result, it is best to
use a shallow container for these types
of food, and only fill it about
1-2" (3-5 cm) deep. When cooking large
quantities divide the food between 2 or
3 shallow containers rather than using
one deep one.
Different types of vegetables which take
the same length of time to cook can be
cooked together in one cooking pan.
Use solid containers for vegetables
which are cooked in liquid, e.g. cabbage.
64
Shelf level
When cooking vegetables with a distinctive color (e.g. beets) in a perforated
container at the same time as cooking
other foods in other containers, place
the drip tray directly underneath the
perforated container to catch any drips
and therefore avoid any color transfer.
Cooking duration
As with conventional methods, when
cooking vegetables with steam, the
cooking duration will depend on the
size and also whether you want the
vegetables to be al dente or soft/well
done. Example:
firm potatoes, cut into quarters
= approx. 17 minutes
firm potatoes, cut in half
= approx. 21 minutes

Meat
Fresh food
Prepare the meat as usual.
Frozen food
Meat should be thoroughly defrosted
before cooking in the steam oven (see
"Defrosting").
Preparation
For meat which needs to be seared before being cooked, e.g. for a stew, sear
the meat in a pan on the cooktop first.
Cooking duration
The cooking time depends on the thickness and consistency of the food. The
thicker the meat, the longer the cooking
time.
Tips
– Use a perforated pan to retain the flavor when cooking meat. Place a solid
pan or universal tray underneath to
catch the juices. You can use these to
make a gravy or freeze them for later
use.
– Boiling chicken, pork rind, meat, ribs
and meat bones can be used to make
stock. Place the meat together with
some mixed vegetables in a solid
cooking pan and add cold water. The
longer the cooking duration, the
stronger the stock.

Preparing for use
Add some lemon or lime juice to fish
before cooking. The citric acid helps the
flesh stay firm.
It is not necessary to season fish when
cooking with steam as this method retains the minerals which give the fish its
unique flavor.
Cooking pans
If using a perforated pan, grease it first.
Shelf level
When cooking fish in a perforated container at the same time as cooking
other types of food in other containers,
place the container with the fish directly
above the tray to catch any liquid and
so avoid any transfer of tastes to other
food.

Steam cooking
Temperature
185° F – 195° F / 85° C – 90° C
For gently cooking delicate types of
fish, such as sole.
212° F / 100 °C
For cooking firmer types of fish, e.g.
cod and salmon.
Also for cooking fish in sauce or stock.
– You can use any fish scraps, e.g. fish
heads, bones, tails etc to make a fish
stock. Place the fish scraps together
with some mixed vegetables in a
solid cooking pan and add cold water. Cook at 212°F / 100°C for 60 to
90 minutes. The longer the cooking
duration, the stronger the stock.
Settings
Cooking duration
The cooking duration depends on the
thickness and the consistency of the
food, and not on the weight.
The longer fish cooks, the firmer its
flesh will become. Use the cooking durations given in the chart. If you find
that the fish is not cooked sufficiently
only cook it for a few minutes more.
When cooking fish in sauce or stock,
we recommend that you increase the
cooking duration quoted by a few minutes.
Tips
– Adding herbs and spices, such as
dill, will help bring out the full flavor of
the fish.
– Cook large fish in the swimming position. To help maintain the shape of
the fish, place a small cup or similar
upside down in the cooking pan, and
arrange the fish bellyside down over
the cup.

Menu Cooking - Manual
Before cooking meals with the "Menu
Cooking" function, turn off the steam
reduction system (see "Settings").
"Menu Cooking" is intended for cooking
a whole meal containing types of food
which have different cooking durations,
e.g., fish filet with rice and broccoli.
Each dish is placed in the oven at different times so that they are all ready at
the same time.
Shelf level
When cooking fish or food with a distinctive color (e.g. beetroot) in a perforated container, place the perforated
container directly above the drip tray /
universal tray (depending on model) to
avoid any transfer of flavor or color to
other food and to prevent liquid dripping onto food below it.
Cooking duration
If you are increasing the recommended
temperature, shorten the cooking duration by approx. ¹/₃.
Example
Rice
20 minutes
Tilapia filet
6 minutes
Broccoli
4 minutes
20 minutes minus 6 minutes = 14 minutes (first cooking duration: rice)
6 minutes minus 4 minutes = 2 minutes
(second cooking duration: tilapia filet)
Time left = 4 minutes (third cooking duration: broccoli)
Cooking durations
20 min. - rice
6 min. - tilapia
filet
4 min. broccoli
Temperature
Whole meals should be cooked at a
temperature of 212°F / 100°C as this is
the temperature required to cook the
majority of foods.
Do not cook a whole meal at the lowest
temperature when different temperatures are required for different types of
food, e.g. 185°F / 85°C for seabream
and 212°F / 100°C for potatoes.
If the recommended cooking temperature for the food is 185°F / 85°C, for example, try cooking it at 212°F / 100°C
and testing the result. Some delicate
types of fish with a soft structure, e.g.
sole and plaice will become very firm
when cooked at 212°F / 100°C.

83
Sous-vide (vacuum) cooking
Always follow USDA guidelines on
food safety.
This gentle cooking method allows food
to be cooked slowly at a low, constant
temperature in vacuum packaging.
With vacuum cooking, moisture does
not evaporate and all nutrients and flavors are retained.
The result is flavorful and cooked
evenly.
Only use food that is fresh and in
good condition.
Ensure hygienic conditions and that
food has not been out of the refrigerator too long, e.g. during transportation.
Use only heat-stable, boiling-resistant vacuum bags.
Do not cook food in the manufacturers packaging, such as vacuumpacked frozen food. It is possible
that an unsuitable vacuum bag was
used.
Use the vacuum bag only once.
Vacuum-seal the food in a chamber
system vacuum sealer only.
84
Sous-vide (vacuum) cooking
Important information on use
To obtain an optimum cooking result,
observe the following information:
– Use fewer herbs and spices than for
conventional cooking, since the influence on the taste of the food is more
intense.
You can also prepare the food unseasoned and add seasonings after
cooking.
– Information on temperature and duration from sous-vide recipes cannot
always be adopted 1:1. Adjust these
settings according to the desired
level of doneness.
– The cooking duration reduces when
salt, sugar, and liquids are added.
– The food becomes firmer with the
addition of acidic ingredients, such
as lemon or vinegar.
– Do not use alcohol or garlic, as an
unpleasant taste may result.
– Only use vacuum bags that match
the size of the food. If the vacuum
bag is too big, too much air may remain inside.
– If you want to cook several foods in
one vacuum bag, put the food in the
bag one next to the other.
– If you want to cook food in several
vacuum bags at once, put the bags
on the shelf one next to the other.
– Cooking durations will depend on the
thickness of the food.
– In case of higher temperatures and/or
longer cooking durations, the appliance may run out of water. Check the
display from time to time.
– Keep the door closed during the
cooking process. Opening the door
extends the cooking process and can
affect the cooking result.
85
Sous-vide (vacuum) cooking
Tips
– To shorten the preparation times, you
can vacuum food 1–2 days before
the cooking procedure. Store the
vacuumed food in the refrigerator at a
maximum of 41°F / 5°C. To maintain
quality and taste, the food must be
cooked after 2 days at the latest.
– Freeze liquids such as marinades before vacuum-sealing to prevent them
from escaping from the vacuum bag.
– Fold the edges of the vacuum bag
outwards for filling in order to obtain
clean, perfect weld seams.
– If you do not want to eat the food directly after cooking, put it in an ice
bath and then store it at a maximum
of 41°F / 5°C.
In this way, you can maintain quality
and taste while extending the life of
the food.
Exception: Eat poultry immediately
after cooking.
– After cooking, cut the vacuum bag on
all sides to access the food better.
– Briefly fry meat and firm types of fish
(such as salmon) before serving for a
roasted aroma.
86
– Extra marinade can be used to prepare a sauce.
– Serve the food on preheated plates.
Sous-vide (vacuum) cooking
Method
 Rinse the food under cold water and
dry it.
Possible causes for poor results
The vacuum bag has opened:
 Put the food in a vacuum bag and
add spices or liquid if desired.
– The weld seam was not clean or stable enough and dissolved.
 Vacuum-seal the food in a chamber
system vacuum sealer.
– The bag was damaged by a sharp
bone.
 For optimum cooking results, insert
the rack on shelf level 2.
The food has an unpleasant or strange
taste:
 Lay the vacuum-sealed food on the
shelf (next to each other in the case
of several bags).
– Incorrect storage of the food; the
food was kept out of the refrigerator
for too long.
 Select Operating Modes.
– The food was contaminated with
bacteria before it was vacuum
sealed.
 Select Sous-vide.
 Adjust the recommended temperature, if necessary.
 Confirm with OK.
 Set the cooking duration. Any time
between 1 minute and 10 hours can
be set.
 Confirm with OK.
– Too much spice was used.
– The bag or weld seam were damaged.
– The vacuum was insufficient.
– The food was not immediately eaten
or cooled after cooking.
 Select additional settings if required
(see "Operation: Steam cooking - Additional functions").

Sous-vide (vacuum) cooking
Reheating
Reheat brassicas (e.g., kohlrabi and
cauliflower) only in combination with a
sauce. Without sauce, an unpleasant
cabbage-like taste and gray-brown
color may develop.
Food with a short cooking time and
food whose degree of cooking
changes during reheating, e.g., fish,
are fundamentally not suited for reheating.
Preparation
Place the cooked food into ice water for
about an hour directly after cooking.
The fast cooling prevents the food from
continuing to cook. The optimum cooking condition is thus retained.
Then store the food in the refrigerator at
a maximum of 41°F / 5°C.
Please note that the quality of the
food decreases the longer it is
stored.
We recommend that you do not store
the food in the refrigerator for longer
than 5 days before reheating.

Special modes
Reheat
Always follow USDA guidelines on
food safety.
To reheat food cooked with the sousvide method, use the "Sous-vide"
mode (see the "Sous-vide – Reheating" chapter).
The steam oven is very effective at reheating food gently, without drying it
out or cooking it further. The food reheats evenly and does not need to be
stirred during the reheating process.
You can reheat individual dishes or
plated meals which have been prepared
previously (e.g. meat, vegetables and
potatoes).
Suitable containers
Small quantities can be reheated on a
plate, larger quantities should be placed
in a cooking pan.
Duration
10-15 minutes are usually sufficient for
one plate of food. More than one plate
will need a little longer.
If you are reheating several plated
meals one after the other, the reheating
time can be reduced by around 5 minutes for the second and subsequent
plates as the oven will still be hot.
Moisture content
The more moist the food, the less moisture that needs to be added.
92
Tips
– Food does not need to be covered
before it is reheated.
– Do not reheat large items whole. Divide it into portions and reheat these
as plated meals.

Defrost
Always follow USDA guidelines on
food safety.
It is much quicker to defrost food in the
steam oven than at room temperature.
Temperature
140°F / 60°C is the best temperature for
defrosting.
Exception: 122°F / 50°C for minced
meat and game
Before and after defrosting
Tips
– Fish does not need to be fully defrosted before cooking. Defrost so
that the surface is sufficiently thawed
to take herbs and seasoning. Depending on the thickness of the fish,
2–5 minutes should be enough.
– When defrosting food which has
frozen together, e.g. berries, chops,
fish filets etc. separate it about halfway through the defrosting time.
– Do not refreeze food once it has
thawed.
Remove all packaging before defrosting.
Exceptions: Leave bread and baked
goods in their packaging as otherwise
they will absorb moisture and become
soft.
– Defrost frozen ready meals according
to the instructions on the packaging.
Allow defrosted food to stand at room
temperature after removing it from the
oven. The standing time is necessary to
allow the even distribution of heat.
Operating Modes
Cooking pan
 Danger of salmonella poisoning.
Do not use the liquid from defrosted
meat or poultry. Dispose and wash
the container, the sink and your
hands.
Use a perforated container with a solid
container underneath it when defrosting
food which will drip, such as poultry.
This way food will not be lying in defrosted liquid.
Foods which don't drip can be defrosted in a solid cooking pan.

Special modes
Canning
Always follow USDA guidelines on
food safety.
Only use unblemished, fresh produce
which is in good condition.
Glass jars
Use clean glass jars and accessories
and check them for any defects. Glass
jars with twist off lids or glass lids with a
rubber seal are suitable.
Make sure that all the glass jars are the
same size so that bottling is carried out
evenly.
After you have filled the jars with the
bottled produce, clean the glass rims
with a clean cloth and hot water and
then seal the jars.
Fruit
Sort fruit carefully, rinse it briefly but
thoroughly and allow it to drain. Take
great care when cleaning soft fruit as it
is very delicate.
Remove any peel, stalks, cores or pits.
Cut up large fruit. For example, cut apples into slices.
Fill volume
Fill the glass jars with produce up to a
maximum of 1 1/4" (3 cm) below the
rim. Do not pack down as this would
damage the cell walls of the produce.
Bang the jar gently on a cloth to help
distribute the contents evenly.
Use a sugar solution for fruit and a salt
or vinegar solution for vegetables.
Tips
– Make use of residual heat by leaving
the jars in the oven for 30 minutes after it has switched off.
– Then cover the jars with a cloth and
allow to cool for approx. 24 hours.
Method
 Place a perforated pan on the lowest
shelf level.
 Place the jars (all the same size) in
the perforated cooking pan. Ensure
that they do not touch one another.

If you are bottling fruit with pits (e.g.
plums, apricots) without removing the
pits, pierce the fruit several times with a
fork or wooden skewer as otherwise it
will burst.
Vegetables
Rinse, clean and cut up vegetables.
Vegetables should be blanched before
bottling to help them retain their color
(see "Blanching").
97
Special modes
Juicing
Method
This appliance is ideal for extracting
juice from soft, firm and hard fruit.
 Put the prepared fruit (cleaned,
washed, chopped etc.) into a perforated cooking pan.
It is best to use overripe fruit, as the
riper the fruit the greater the quantity of
juice produced. Very ripe fruit will also
produce a more intense flavor.
Preparation
Sort and rinse the fruit. Cut out any
blemishes.
Remove the stalks from grapes and
cherries as these are bitter. The stalks
do not need to be removed from
berries.
Cut larger fruit into chunks approx.
1" (2 cm) in size. The harder the fruit the
smaller the pieces should be.
Tips
– Try experimenting with mild and tart
flavors.
– The juice quantity and aroma are improved if sugar is added to the fruit
and is allowed to soak in for several
hours. We recommend ¼–½ cup (50–
100 g) sugar per 2 lbs (1 kg) of sweet
fruit and ½–¾ cup (100–150 g) sugar
for 2 lbs (1 kg) tangy fruit.
– If you wish to bottle the juice rather
than consume it straight away, while
still hot pour it into clean bottles and
seal immediately.

Making Yogurt
Always follow USDA guidelines on
food safety.
To make yogurt, you will need either
fresh live yogurt or yogurt culture, obtainable from health food stores.
Use natural yogurt with live culture and
without additives. Do not use heattreated yogurt.
The yogurt must be fresh (short storage
time).
You can use either pasteurized or fresh
whole milk. Pasteurized milk can be
used without any further treatment.
Fresh milk must first be heated to
195° F / 90° C (not boiled!) and then
cooled down to 95° F / 35° C. Fresh
milk will give a firmer yogurt than longlife milk.
Possible causes for poor results
Yogurt is not set:
Incorrect storage of the yogurt starter,
too much time out of the refrigerator,
packaging was damaged, milk was insufficiently heated.
Liquid has not been removed:
Jars were moved, yogurt was not
cooled down quickly enough.
Yogurt is grainy:
Milk was overheated or in poor condition, milk and starter yogurt not evenly
stirred.
Tip: When using yogurt enzyme, yogurt
can be made from a milk / cream mixture. Mix ³/₄ liter/3 cups milk
with ¹/₄ liter/1 cup cream.
The yogurt and milk should have the
same percentage fat.
Do not move or shake the jars while the
yogurt is thickening.
After preparing the yogurt, it must be
immediately placed in the refrigerator to
cool down.
The firmness, fat content and cultures
used in the yogurt starter all affect the
consistency of homemade yogurt. Not
all yogurts are equally suitable as yogurt starters.

Roast probe
How it works
When to use the roast probe
The metal tip of the roast probe is inserted into the food. There is a temperature sensor in the metal tip which measures the core temperature of the food
during cooking.
The roast probe can be used in the following operating modes:
The core temperature set will depend
on how well cooked you want your
meat to be and on the type of meat.
The temperature can be set between 86
and 210°F / 30 and 99°C.
The cooking duration will depend on a
number of different factors. The higher
the temperature in the oven compartment and the humidity, where applicable and the thinner the meat, the
quicker the set core temperature will be
reached.

mode or with user programs, another
cooking stage, e.g., browning the meat,
may be required.
Damage to roast probe by incorrect
use!
If you are not using the roast probe
remove it from the oven when cooking.
It is only protected from overheating
when it is plugged in.
111
Roast probe
Important notes regarding the
roast probe
The handle and cord of the roast
probe must not touch the browning /
broiling element during cooking.
Method
 Prepare the food.
 Insert the metal tip of the roast probe
fully into the food.
 Place the food in the oven.
Risk of breakage!
Do not use the roast probe to lift or
carry the food.
The metal tip of the roast probe must
be fully inserted into the center of the
food.
Do not let the metal tip touch any
bones, and do not insert it into a particularly fatty area of the meat. Heavily
marbled areas and bones can cause
cooking to end prematurely.
If the meat is very heavily marbled with
fat, select the highest core temperature
given in the roasting chart.
When using roasting bags, insert the
probe through the bag into the center of
the meat.
You can also place the meat, with the
roast probe inserted, inside the bag.
Follow the roasting bag manufacturer's
instructions.
If wrapping meat in aluminum foil, the
roast probe must be inserted through
the foil to the center of the meat.
 Open the connection socket for the
roast probe and insert the plug of the
roast probe into the socket until you
feel it engage.
 Select the desired mode.
 Alter the recommended and/or core
temperature if necessary.
After the cooking process
 Burn hazard!
The roast probe can get hot.
 Before taking the food out of the
oven, carefully remove the roast
probe plug from the connection
socket.

Roasting tips
 Insert the grease filter in the back
panel when roasting.
Frozen meat must be defrosted before it is cooked as it would dry out.
 Always defrost meat before roasting.
 Remove skin and sinew before roasting.
 Season the meat to taste and dot
with butter, or in the case of game,
bard with rashers of streaky bacon.
Tip: Game can be marinated overnight
e.g. in buttermilk, to tenderize it.
 If you are cooking several pieces of
meat together, select pieces that are
similar in size.
 Roast meat on the rack above the
universal tray. The cooking liquids will
collect in the tray and can then be
used to make a gravy or sauce.
 Allow a standing time of approx. 10
minutes after the end of cooking so
that the cooking liquids are evenly
distributed.
We recommend the Combi Steam | Convection Bake and Combi Steam | Surround
modes for roasting.
If you wish to use other modes, you
can enter your cooking stages as a
user program (see "User programs").
114
Combi Steam
The lower the temperature in the oven
compartment, the longer the cooking
process and the more tender the result.
Lean meat
The addition of steam prevents the surface of lean meat from drying out. Excellent results can be achieved when
using 5 cooking stages for the cooking
process
– Cooking stage 1: the oven compartment and the rack above the universal tray are pre-heated.
– Cooking stage 2: the meat is
browned.
– Cooking stage 3: adjust the temperature so that it is suitable for cooking
the meat so that it is tender.
– Cooking stage 4: cook until tender.
– Cooking stage 5: continue cooking to
the required level.
Roast
Fatty meat with crispy skin
– Cooking stage 1: use a high temperature to render the fat and brown the
skin.
– Cooking stage 2: reduce the temperature and increase the moisture
– Cooking stage 3: increase the temperature for crispy skin.
Braised dishes
– Cooking stage 1: preheat the oven
with the rack above the universal tray.
– Cooking stage 2: the meat is
browned.
– Cooking stage 3: braise the meat at a
temperature of 210°F / 100 °C with
84% moisture.
Poultry
– Cooking stage 1: use a high temperature and a high moisture level to
render the fat.
– Cooking stage 2: lower the temperature.
– Cooking stage 3: increase the temperature and reduce humidity to dry
out and crisp the skin.

settings, please refer to the following

120
Bake
Eating food which has been cooked
correctly is important for good
health.
Only bake cakes, pizza, french fries,
etc. until they are golden brown. Do
not overcook them.
Convection Bake
For baking on several levels at the same
time. The fan distributes the heat evenly
throughout the cavity for a consistent
baking temperature.
 When using Surround, reduce the
temperatures given for Convection
Bake by about 20°F/20°C.
Bake
Use this at the end of the baking time to
brown the bottom of the food.
Humidity Plus
For creamed mixtures, choux pastry
and deep frozen pretzels.
Intensive Bake
For baking cakes with a moist topping,
e.g. cheese cake, fresh fruit cakes,
quiche and flans. Also suitable for items
such as pizza without the need to prebake the base.
 Bake on the lowest shelf level.
Surround
Combi Steam
Heat is used from both the upper and
lower heating elements to create perfect results of all baking recipes.
The gleaming finish on bread, rolls and
puff pastry is achieved by adding steam
(maximum moisture, low temperature) in
cooking stage 1. Browning is achieved
using a high moisture level and a high
temperature. The drying-out phase
takes place with low moisture and a
high temperature.
 Use only one shelf level for baking.
 Place tray bakes on the middle shelf.
 If using an older recipe or cookbook,
set the oven temperature 10°F/10°C
lower than that recommended. This
will not change cooking durations.
Browning
For a perfectly browned topping, for example when making a gratin or browning the top of a casserole..
121
Bake
Baking tips
Shelf level
Grease filter
 When baking cakes with a moist topping only bake on one level.
 Remove the grease filter from the
back wall. Otherwise results can be
uneven.
Bakeware
 Dark-colored bakeware is best for
baking. It conducts the heat more
swiftly to the mixture. Shiny metal
bakeware reflects heat.
Cakes baked in shiny metal bakeware
take longer to bake.
 Bake cakes in rectangular bakeware
with the longer side across the width
of the oven compartment for optimum heat distribution and even results.
 With MasterChef programs, use the
bakeware recommended in the cookbook.
Universal tray
Because of its PerfectClean anti-stick
surface, the universal tray does not
need to be greased for baking.
122
 Use a maximum of two shelf levels at
once. If you want to bake on two
shelf levels at the same time, use the
bottom and middle level.
Parchment paper
Parchment paper is only necessary
when baking:
– Anything with a high salt content (e.g.
pretzels, bread sticks), because
sodium can damage the PerfectClean
surface
– Meringues or dishes with a high egg
white content, because they are more
likely to stick
– Puff pastry
Bake
Frozen food
 When baking deep frozen products
such as chips, croquettes, cakes,
pizza and baguettes, use the lowest
temperature quoted on the manufacturer's packaging.
 Cook frozen goods such as cakes,
pizza or baguettes on a layer of baking parchment placed on the rack.
Baking large frozen items on the baking tray or the universal tray can
cause the metal to distort to such an
extent that the tray cannot be taken
out of the oven.
 Small items of frozen food such as
oven chips or potato croquettes can
be cooked on the universal tray.
Place them on baking parchment and
turn several times during cooking.
Notes regarding the baking
chart
 As a general rule, select the lower
temperature given in the chart.
 Do not set a temperature higher than
that recommended. Increasing the
temperature may reduce the baking
duration, but will lead to uneven
browning, and unsatisfactory cooking
results.
 Check if the food is cooked at the
end of the shortest duration quoted.
To check if a cake is ready, insert a
wooden skewer into the center. It is
ready if the skewer comes out clean,
without dough or crumbs sticking to
it.

during broiling, as otherwise the controls will get hot.
For broiling thicker items, e.g. poultry or
roulades.
Tips
Broiling tips
 Place the food on the rack on top of
universal tray.
 When broiling fish, place the fish on a
piece of baking paper cut to size.
 Place the food in the steam oven
without pre-heating. Pre-heating the
steam oven is not necessary when
broiling.
 Broil thick items, e.g. half a chicken,
in the middle and thin items, e.g.
steak, on the top shelf level.
 Turn the food after ²/₃ of the cooking
time has elapsed. Fish does not need
to be turned.
The roast probe cannot be used with
the Maxi Broil, Broil, and Combi Steam |
Maxi Broil modes.
Maxi Broil
This function gives excellent browning
and searing results. Use this function
for chops, ribs, large quantities of meat
and for browning large dishes.
Broil
This function is excellent for broiling or
searing small quantities. Use this function for chops, ribs, small quantities of
meat and for browning small dishes.
128
– Marinate or add a little oil if necessary to lean meat. Do not use other
types of fat as they can burn and
cause smoke.
– Make diagonal cuts in sausage before broiling.
– It is best to broil food of a similar
thickness at the same time so that
the broiling time for each item does
not vary too greatly.
– To broil thicker pieces of food more
gradually after an initial high temperature, continue broiling at a lower temperature setting or use a lower shelf
runner to allow the food to cook
through to the center.

Cleaning and care
Important information on
cleaning and care
 Risk of injury!
The steam from a steam cleaner
could reach electrical components
and cause a short circuit.
Do not use a steam cleaner to clean
the steam oven.
All surfaces can become discolored
or damaged if unsuitable cleaning
agents are used. The front of the
oven, in particular, will be damaged
by oven cleaners.
All surfaces are susceptible to
scratching. Scratches on glass surfaces may cause a breakage.
Immediately remove any residues left
by cleaning agents.
 The appliance and accessories
should be cleaned and dried thoroughly after each use.
 Leave the appliance door open until
the oven interior is completely dry.
If the appliance is not going to be
used for a longer period of time, e.g.
while on vacation, it should be thoroughly cleaned and dried beforehand
to prevent the build-up of odors, etc.
Leave the door open afterwards.
Stubborn soiling could damage the
steam oven in certain circumstances.
Once the oven has cooled clean the
oven, the inside of the door and the
door seal. Waiting too long to clean
the oven will make if much more difficult to clean.
Do not use commercial cleaning
agents. Only use agents designed for
domestic use.
Do not use cleaning agents or liquid
dish soap containing aliphatic hydrocarbons as these could cause the
seals to swell.
Allow the appliance to cool down to
a safe temperature before cleaning.
139
Cleaning and care
To better maintain your appliance avoid the following:
To avoid damaging surfaces when
cleaning, do not use:
– Cleaners containing soda, ammonia,
thinners, or chlorides
– Descaling agents
– Abrasive cleaning agents (e.g., powder or cream cleansers, pumice
stones)
– Solvent-based cleaners
– Stainless steel cleaners
– Dishwasher cleaners
– Ceramic cooktop cleaners
– Hard, abrasive brushes or sponges
(e.g. pot scrubbers or scrub sponges,
sponges which have previously been
used with abrasive cleaning agents)
– Eraser sponges
– Sharp metal scrapers
– Steel wool
– Stainless steel spiral pads
– Spot cleaners
– Oven sprays
Glass cleaners may be used to clean
the exterior. However do not allow
them to sit or "puddle", this can cause
damage to the surface. Remove the
cleaner promptly.
140
Appliance front
If soiling is not removed promptly, it
may become impossible to remove,
and surfaces can become discolored
or change their appearance.
Remove soiling immediately.
 Clean the front with a solution of
warm water and washing-up liquid
applied with a clean sponge or cloth.
A clean, damp microfiber cloth without cleaning agent can also be used.
 After cleaning dry the front of the appliance with a soft cloth.
Cleaning and care
PerfectClean
The surfaces of the oven compartment
and shelf runners have been treated
with PerfectClean enamel. This finish
has an iridescent appearance. PerfectClean surfaces have very good nonstick properties and are easy to clean.
However, it is very important to clean
the surfaces each time the oven is
used.
The surface will become harder to clean
and the non-stick properties will deteriorate if soiling is not removed after each
use and allowed to build up.
Soiling such as spilt juices and cake
mixtures are best removed while the
oven or tray is still warm. Exercise caution, make sure the oven is not hot.
To protect the non-stick effect of
PerfectClean surfaces, please avoid:
– Abrasive cleaning agents, such as
scouring powder, scouring cream,
pumice pits
– Ceramic cooktop cleaners
– Ceramic and stainless steel cleaner
– Steel wool
– Abrasive sponges, e.g. pot scourers
or sponges which have been previously used with abrasive cleaning
agents
– Oven sprays
– Cleaning in the dishwasher
– Spot cleaners
Spilt fruit juices may cause lasting discoloration of the surfaces. This discoloration is permanent but will not affect
the efficiency of the surface.
Remove residual cleaning agent after
cleaning. If left it will reduce the nonstick properties of the PerfectClean
surfaces.
141
Cleaning and care
Do not use oven spray.
Oven interior
The surface of the oven compartment has been treated with PerfectClean.
Please refer to the section on "PerfectClean" for information on cleaning and care.
The oven door (see "Door") and the side
runners (see "Side runners") can be removed to make it easier to clean the
oven interior.
After a program using steam
 Remove:
– Condensate using a sponge or absorbent cloth
– Light, greasy soiling with a sponge
and a solution of liquid dish soap and
hot water
 After cleaning, wipe with clean water
to remove any detergent residues.
 Then dry the oven interior and the inside of the door with a cloth.
Tip: You can then leave the oven to dry
automatically (see "Cleaning and care Drying").
142
After a roasting, broiling or baking
program
Clean the oven compartment thoroughly after roasting and baking as
otherwise soiling can burn on and
become impossible to remove.
 Remove light soiling from the oven
compartment and the inside of the
door using a soft clean sponge and a
mild solution of warm water and liquid dish soap. If necessary, the pad
on the reverse of the sponge can be
used to clean the oven compartment.
 After cleaning, wipe with clean water
to remove any detergent residues.
 Then dry the oven interior and the inside of the door with a cloth.
Tip: Soaking the soiling for a few minutes with a solution of washing-up liquid and hot water can make cleaning
easier. Alternatively run the Maintenance
| Soak program (see "Maintenance Soak").
Cleaning and care
Drain filter
 The filter in the floor of the oven
should be cleaned and dried after every use.
 Vinegar can be used to remove discoloration and limescale deposits
from the filter in the floor of the oven.
Rinse thoroughly with clean water to
remove any residual cleaning agent.
Grease filter
Clean the grease filter after every
roasting program.
The grease filter can be cleaned in a
dishwasher.
Door gasket
Grease deposits on the seal between
the inside of the oven door and the
oven interior can cause it to become
brittle and cracked.
 Clean the door seal after every baking or roasting program using a clean,
damp microfiber cloth or a soft clean
sponge and a mild solution of warm
water and liquid dish soap.
 After cleaning, dry the seal with a soft
cloth.
 Replace the seal with a new one if it
becomes porous or brittle.
Door seals can be ordered from the
Miele Service (see the end of this booklet for contact details).
 Pull the grease filter on the back
panel upwards to remove it.
 The grease filter can be cleaned in
the dishwasher or by hand with a soft
clean sponge and a mild solution of
warm water and liquid dish soap.
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 discoloration will not affect
the functioning of the filter in any way.
143
Cleaning and care
Water container and condensate container
The water container and condensate
container are suitable for cleaning in a
dishwasher.
 Remove and empty the water container and condensate container after
every use. Push upwards slightly as
you take them out of the appliance.
Water can drip into the water container and condensate container compartment when removing the containers.
 Dry the compartment with a soft
cloth.
 Rinse the water container / condensate container by hand or in the dishwasher.
 Then dry the water container and
condensate container with a soft
cloth to prevent limescale.
Accessories
Cooking pans
The cooking pans are suitable for
cleaning in the dishwasher.
 Wash and dry the cooking pans after
each use.
 Vinegar can be used to remove bluish
discoloration. Rinse thoroughly with
clean water to remove any residual
cleaning agent.
144
Universal tray and wire oven rack
The surface of the universal tray and
the wire oven rack have been treated
with a PerfectClean finish.
Do not clean the universal tray and
wire oven rack in the dishwasher.
Please refer to the section on "PerfectClean" for information on cleaning and care.
 Remove:
– light soiling with a soft clean sponge
and a mild solution of warm water
and liquid dish soap.
– heavier soiling with a clean nonscouring sponge and a soft clean
sponge and a mild solution of warm
water and liquid dish soap. If necessary, the pad on the reverse of the
sponge can be used.
 After cleaning, wipe with clean water
to remove any detergent residues.
 Dry the surface of the universal tray
and the wire oven rack with a soft
cloth.
Cleaning and care
Roast probe
Do immerse the roast probe in water
or clean it in the dishwasher as this
will damage it.
 Clean the roast probe with a damp
cloth after every use.
Shelf runners
The surface of the side runners has
been treated with PerfectClean.
Do not clean the side runners in the

Descaling Tablets (see "Optional accessories") for descaling the appliance. They have been specifically designed for optimal descaling of Miele
products. Other descaling agents,
which - in addition to citric acid - may
contain other acids and/or other undesirable substances such as chlorides,
might damage the product. Also, the
desired effect cannot be guaranteed if
the descaling solution does not have
the required concentration.
Descaling solution is acidic.
Do not spill descaling agent onto
metal surfaces. This can cause
marks to appear.
However, should any descaling
agent get onto these surfaces, wipe
it away immediately.
