Miele reveals 2016 product launches
Retailers and consumers can expect new launches in a number of appliance categories from Miele in 2016. Below is a preview of what’s to come.
This new flagship combination steam oven will be available from January 2016. It will feature an M Touch display for seamless navigation, a 68L capacity, Miele’s patented wireless food probe and sous-vide slow cooking technology. Settings include steam cooking, Fan Plus, top heat, bottom heat, top & bottom heat, Intensive Bake, Gentle Bake and three grill settings. It will also offer more than 200 automatic programmes to help take the guess work out of cooking, along with individual programmes for favourite dishes that can be programmed and stored for future use. Miele’s MultiSteam technology is incorporated for super-quick heat up times up to 100°C. A plumbed model will also be available.
A new ceiling and slimline canopy cooker hood will also launch in January 2016. The unobtrusive ceiling extractor is 90cm long with a depth of 50cm. The new Miele DA 5796 W canopy hood benefits from a slim-line design and attractive glass screen, making it ideal for wall mounting. Both hoods have an A+ energy rating and are compatible with Miele’s Con@ctivity 2.0 technology.
From February 2016, all Miele W1 washing machines and T1 tumble dryers will benefit from improved energy efficiency. The washing machines will all feature an A+++ energy rating or over-perform by up to 40%, while the heat-pump tumble dryers will offer at least an A++ rating with many achieving A+++.
A new range of induction hobs with TempControl technology launches in May 2016. Miele TempControl uses sensors to detect the characteristics of the material and the temperature of the pan. Power is then regulated automatically to ensure that food is subjected to a uniform and constant temperature, irrespective of whether the pan lid is fitted or not. This will stop the heat from continuing to rise as it does on current conventional or induction hobs, which in turn will result in food not burning if the heat is not turned down.
This vacuum-sealing drawer will also be available from May 2016 to complement the Generation 6000 design. The vacuum chamber will only become visible when the drawer is opened and users can set the vacuum-sealing stage and the sealing duration. Vacuum-sealing can also be used to help preserve foods, which is handy for preparing dishes in advance or batch cooking. Depending on the initial condition of food, vacuum-sealing can also extend shelf life up to three to five times longer. Once sealed, the food can then be placed in the new Miele DGC 6860 XXL Flagship Steam Combination Oven, which can be controlled within one degree for precise results and offers a temperature range of 45°C and 90°C – ideal for the gentle, slow sous-vide cooking process.
A new cooling range comprises refrigerators, freezers and fridge-freezer combinations, with all models featuring Generation 6000 design, TFT colour displays and touch controls, and A++ or A+++ ratings for energy efficiency. The collection includes a special Blackboard edition, which can be written on with both traditional and liquid chalk markers. Other door options will be available including glass in brilliant white and obsidian black, and classic white and stainless steel. Each model features a Click2open recessed handle and a ‘CompactCase’ drawer for keeping small items and condiments neatly stored.
