The kitchen is, for many reasons, the heart of the home. It’s a space where we gather to nourish ourselves and our families, and it’s one place where you want your appliances to not only be professional-level, but also have high-quality design. Miele’s extensive collection of ovens and ranges offer both if you’re looking for a top-of-the-line upgrade for your dream kitchen (whether you’re building it this year or 10 years from now).

But for those who just want to take their cooking capabilities up a notch, Miele now has a suite of multi-functional appliances designed to fit into smaller home kitchens, offering features normally only seen in restaurant kitchens.

Consolidate Your Appliances

One of the most powerful devices found in professional kitchens are combi ovens, which let chefs cook in a convection oven with the added bonus of steam cooking. Miele’s Combi-Steam Oven is a powerful compact model that lets you cook with convection, steam, or a combination of both. It can fit into any size home kitchen, even really tiny ones, and can replace other small appliances like bulky bread machines and steamer baskets, freeing up much-needed cabinet and counter space.

The Combi-Steam Oven has extra-deep trays to maximize cooking space and over 100 MasterChef automatic programs, including 15 bread programs, that help you perfect both simple and ambitious recipes every time. Moisture Plus adds the right amount of moisture to help homemade breads like sourdough achieve optimal oven-spring (meaning the loaf’s surface expands easily), then the convection heat finishes baking to a golden-brown, crackly crust.

Cook with Precision

Miele’s focus on ergonomic design makes sure their appliances fit comfortably within your space, rather than take up space. An M Touch control panel makes it super easy to dial in the exact cook settings you want, and the ComfortSwivel door handle adds a touch of luxury to an overlooked spot. Finally, the Wireless Precision Probe keeps track of foods’ internal temperatures more easily than traditional probe thermometers, taking the guesswork out of knowing when meats and fishes are ready.

Of course, the steam capabilities are ideal for preparing vibrant veggie dishes in a snap. Kimchi and radish salad and steamed artichokes cook perfectly in the Combi-Steam without the need for big pots of boiling water.

Whether you’ve been dreaming of having your own chef’s-quality kitchen, or you’re ready to take advantage of restaurant quality tools in a home setting, Miele’s culinary collection puts professionalism in reach.
