Miele‘s KM 7897 FL hob unit with FullSurface induction received the iF Gold Award 2020 at the iF Product Design Award 2020. With this appliance, up to 6 pots and pans can be positioned anywhere on the 90 cm ceramic screen, and even moved around as required. Just as convenient is operation using SmartSelect controls: which setting is required for various pots and pans is visible at a glance as the run of numbers travel around with pans as they are relocated. This smart pan recognition feature has been submitted for patents. SilentMove allows pots and pans to slide around noiselessly. This results from the printed graphics being on the underside of the ceramic screen instead of, as is usually the case, on top. A prerequisite for this to work is a particularly high-quality and transparent glass ceramic screen which is further supported by the elegant and minimalistic design. Four further Miele appliances were also granted the iF Design Award: two lab washer series and the compact washing machines from the Little Giants series (both from Miele Professional’s commercial series of models) and the Aura 3.0 island cooker hood.
