Miele renews its range of built-in appliances


With its Generation 7000, Miele is renewing its entire product range of built-in kitchen appliances, from ovens and hob units to steam ovens, coffee machines through to dishwashers. Aesthetically, Generation 7000 offers four new design lines: PureLine, VitroLine, ArtLine and ContourLine. PureLine presents a modern, contemporary appeal, with its solid handle, low-key stainless-steel trim and a glass front in obsidian black. VitroLine underlines its style with a handle in appliance colour, and ArtLine with its minimalistic approach dispenses with a classical door handle altogether. The VitroLine and ArtLine design lines with their reduced all-glass fronts are available in graphite grey, brilliant white and obsidian black. In contrast, ContourLine relies heavily on its stainless-steel frame: here, the focus is on showcasing the appliance and its technology.
A further benefit is the ease with which the new Miele appliances help users to attain culinary excellence. There are smart assistants on board. “Generation 7000 appliances guide our customers through the cooking process. Operating steps are intuitive, processes are smooth and natural – says chief Miele designer Andreas Enslin -. This new ease of handling leaves greater room for creativity”. Important controls and displays are located in precisely the same position across the range, making for a common cross-category approach to machine operation: a person familiar with a wall oven will approach for example a combination steam oven or a coffee machine with the same familiarity from the outset. The intuitive handling is further supported by Miele with MotionReact, another cross-product feature: when required, Miele appliances are able to pre-empt the user’s next moves and automatically switch on when the user approaches, activating the oven lighting or deactivating the ringtone at the end of a programme. Besides, when things hot up, TasteControl steps in. On ovens this function prevents food from overcooking by bringing the temperature in the oven interior down fast at the end of a programme. Cooking processes end precisely on time, reliably preventing food from continuing to cook in the oven’s residual heat, which would cause the food to relinquish its moisture. In pursuit of the best possible results, an in-oven camera provides valuable support to the user. And, for the first time, this feature is even available on pyrolytic self-cleaning models in which the camera is subject to intense heat. The heat-protected, built-in camera transmits images in HD quality to a tablet PC or smartphone. From the convenience of a mobile device, adjustments can then easily be made to the temperature and cooking time. A pre-requisite for the use of the camera is an Internet connection. Most appliances from all Generation 7000 categories already have a wi-fi module on board, which, when connected to the Miele@mobile app, enables a whole host of new and additional convenience functions. The new Generation 7000 dishwashers with AutoDos and PowerDisk go about their work independently, once starting times have been programmed in. A connected appliance can naturally be started or stopped from a tablet PC or smartphone. Another new feature is the RemoteService function with which software updates can be downloaded to an appliance for installation with great ease. Previously, this required a service call-out. With Generation 7000, Miele is introducing nearly 3,000 model versions worldwide. The new range comes under starter’s orders in May 2019.
