 This steam oven is intended for domestic use only as described in
these operating instructions.
Any other usage is not supported by the manufacturer and could be
dangerous.
 The steam oven can only be used by people with reduced
physical, sensory or mental capabilities, or lack of experience and
knowledge, if they are supervised whilst using it, or have been
shown how to use it in a safe way and recognise and understand the
consequences of incorrect operation.
Page: 8
Warning and Safety instructions
9
Safety with children
 Activate the system lock to ensure that children cannot switch on
the steam oven inadvertently.
 Children under 8 years of age must be kept away from the
appliance unless they are constantly supervised.
 Children 8 years and older may only use the steam oven
unsupervised if they have been shown how to use it safely and
recognise and understand the consequences of incorrect operation.
 Children must not be allowed to clean the steam oven
unsupervised.
 Please supervise children in the vicinity of the steam oven and do
not let them play with it.
 Danger of suffocation. Packaging, e.g. plastic wrappings, must be
kept out of the reach of babies and children. Whilst playing, children
could become entangled in packaging or pull it over their head and
suffocate.
 Danger of burning. Children's skin is far more sensitive to high
temperatures than that of adults. The door glass, the control panel
and the ventilation outlet above the oven door all get hot. Make sure
that children do not touch the steam oven or attempt to open the
door when it is in operation. Keep children well away from the

 Danger of injury. The door can support a maximum weight of
10 kg.
Do not let children sit on the door, lean against it or swing on it. They
could injure themselves.
Page: 9
Warning and Safety instructions

Technical safety
 Unauthorised installation, maintenance and repairs can cause
considerable danger for the user. Installation, maintenance and
repairs must only be carried out by a Miele authorised technician.
 Never use a damaged steam oven. It could be dangerous. Check
it for visible signs of damage before using it.
 Reliable and safe operation of this steam oven can only be
assured if it has been connected to the mains electricity supply.
 The electrical safety of this appliance can only be guaranteed
when correctly earthed. It is essential that this standard safety
requirement is met. If in any doubt please have the electrical
installation tested by a qualified electrician.
 Before connecting the appliance to the mains supply, ensure that
the connection data on the data plate (voltage and frequency) match
the mains electricity 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 connect the steam oven to the mains electricity supply by
a multi-socket adapter or an extension lead. These do not guarantee
the required safety of the appliance (fire hazard).
 For safety reasons, this steam oven may only be used when it has
been built in. This is necessary to ensure that all electrical
components are shielded.
 This steam oven must not be used in a non-stationary location
(e.g. on a ship).
 Never open the casing of the appliance. Tampering with electrical
connections or components and mechanical parts is highly
dangerous to the user and can cause operational faults.
Page: 10
Warning and Safety instructions
11
 While the appliance is under guarantee, repairs should only be
undertaken by a Miele authorised service technician. Otherwise the
guarantee is invalidated.
 Miele can only guarantee the safety of the appliance when
genuine original Miele replacement parts are used. Faulty
components must only be replaced by Miele spare parts.
 If the plug is removed from the connection cable or if the cable is
supplied without a plug, the appliance must be connected to the
electrical supply by a suitably qualified electrician.
 If the connection cable is damaged, it must be replaced with a
special connection cable type H 05 VV-F (PVC insulated). See
"Electrical connection".
 During installation, maintenance and repair work, the appliance
must be disconnected from the mains electricity supply.
 If the steam oven is installed behind a furniture panel (e.g. a door),
ensure that the door is never closed whilst the steam oven is in use.
Heat and moisture can build up behind a closed furniture panel and
cause subsequent damage to the steam oven, the housing unit and
the floor. Do not close the door until the steam oven has cooled
down completely.
Page: 11
Warning and Safety instructions
12
Correct 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.
Wear oven gloves when placing food in the oven or removing it and
when adjusting oven shelves etc. in a hot oven.
Take care when putting cooking containers into the oven or
removing them not to spill the contents.
 Do not use the steam oven to heat up or bottle food in sealed jars
and tins.
Pressure will build up inside them and they can explode causing
damage to the appliance, as well as the risk of injury and scalding.
 Plastic containers which are not suitable for use in an oven melt
at high temperatures and can damage the steam oven or catch fire.
Only use plastic containers which are declared by the manufacturer
as being suitable for use in an 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
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.
 You could injure yourself on the open steam oven door or trip over
it. Avoid leaving the door open unnecessarily.
 The door can support a maximum weight of 10 kg. Do not sit on
or lean against an open door, and do not place heavy objects on it.
Also make sure that nothing can get trapped between the door and
the oven cavity. The steam oven could get damaged.
Page: 12
Warning and Safety instructions
13
 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.
 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.
 Grilling food for an excessively long time can cause it to dry out
with the risk of catching fire.
Do not exceed recommended grilling times.
 Some types of food dry out quickly and can self-ignite if high grill
temperatures are used.
Never use the grill to finish baking part-cooked rolls or bread or to
dry flowers or herbs. Use Fan plus  or Conventional heat  for
this type of procedure.
 To avoid fuelling any flames, do not open the oven door if smoke
occurs inside the appliance. Interrupt the process by switching the
appliance off and disconnect it from the mains electricity supply. Do
not open the door until the smoke has dispersed.
 If using alcohol in your recipes, please be aware that high
temperatures can cause the alcohol to vaporise. The vapour can
catch fire on hot heating elements.
 Never cover the floor of the oven with aluminium foil, or place
oven dishes, pans, saucepans or trays directly onto the floor of the
oven.
 Never use the oven without the filter in the bottom of the oven in
place. It will prevent coarse food residues from blocking the
drainage system and the pump.
 To prevent the risk of damage do not leave the food probe in the
oven when it is not being used.
Page: 13
Warning and Safety instructions
14
 When using a small electrical appliance, e.g. a hand-held blender,
near the steam oven, care should be taken that the cable of the
appliance cannot get trapped by the steam oven door. The
insulation on the cable could become damaged, giving rise to an
electric shock hazard.
 Do not operate the steam oven without the lamp cover. Steam
could could reach electrical components and cause a short circuit.
Steam could also damage the electrical components.
Page: 14
Warning and Safety instructions
15
Cleaning and care
 Do not use a steam cleaning appliance to clean this appliance.
The steam could reach electrical components and cause a short
circuit.
 Scratches on the door glass can result in the glass breaking. 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 fitted.
 Try to avoid the interior walls being splashed with food or liquids
containing salt. If it does happen, wipe these away thoroughly to
avoid corrosion to stainless steel surfaces inside the cabinet.
Accessories
 Only use genuine original Miele accessories and spare parts with
this appliance. Using accessories or spare parts from other
manufacturers will invalidate the guarantee, and Miele cannot accept
liability.
 Only use the Miele food probe supplied with this oven. If it is
faulty, it must only be replaced with a suitable original Miele food
probe.

Caring for the environment
16
Disposal of the packing
material
The packaging is designed to protect
the appliance from damage during
transportation. The packaging materials
used are selected from materials which
are environmentally friendly for disposal
and should be recycled.
Recycling the packaging reduces the
use of raw materials in the
manufacturing process and also
reduces the amount of waste in landfill
sites.
Disposal of your old appliance
Electrical and electronic appliances
often contain valuable materials. They
also contain materials which, if handled
or disposed of incorrectly, could be
potentially hazardous to human health
and to the environment. They are,
however, essential for the correct
functioning of your appliance. Please
do not therefore dispose of it with your
household waste.
Please dispose of it at your local
community waste collection / recycling
centre or contact your Dealer for
advice.
Ensure that it presents no danger to
children while being stored for disposal.

Control panel
The water container and condensate
container are located behind the control
panel. The control panel is opened and
closed using the  sensor. The panel
is fitted with a device which will
automatically stop it moving if it meets
an obstruction whilst opening or
closing. Do not touch the door handle
whilst the panel is opening or closing!
Water container
The maximum water level is 1.4 litres,
the minimum 1.0 litre. These levels are
indicated on the container. Do not
exceed the maximum level.
The amount of water used will depend
on the type of food and the duration of
cooking. Water will sometimes need to
be replenished during the cooking
programme. Water consumption is
increased if the door is opened during
cooking.
Fill the water container to the maximum
level before each use.
Condensate container
Condensate that collects in the
appliance from cooking is pumped into
the condensate container. The
container has a maximum capacity of
1.4 litres.
Grease filter
Fit the grease filter in the back wall for
all roasting programmes.
It should be removed when using steam
programmes.
It must also be removed when baking,
as otherwise results can be uneven.
(Exception: fit the grease filter in the
back wall when baking open deep fresh
fruit flans, e.g. plum or damson or pizza
with lots of topping).
Food probe
The food probe measures the core
temperature in the food, enabling the
temperature during the cooking
process to be monitored simply and
accurately.
Temperature / Core
temperature
Some functions have a default
recommended temperature. This
temperature can be altered within the
given range for the programme or
programme stage in use, or for every
time that programme is used (see
"Settings - Recommended
temperatures").
The core temperature can also be
changed within a given range for an
individual cooking process or cooking
stage.
Page: 23
Description of functions
24
Moisture
The Combi mode and Reheat functions
use a combination of oven heat and
moisture. You can alter the moisture
level within a given range for an
individual cooking programme or a
cooking stage.
Depending on the moisture setting for
the programme, either moisture or fresh
air is injected into the oven. If the
moisture level is set to 0 %, the
maximum amount of air will be injected
and no moisture. If the moisture level is
set to 100 %, air will not be injected
into the oven and the maximum amount
of moisture will be injected.
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.
Duration
Depending on the function, you can set
a cooking duration of between 1 minute
and 6, 10 or 12 hours.
The duration of the Automatic,
Maintenance and Menu cooking
programmes is set at the factory and
cannot be altered.
With the Steam cooking function and
programmes 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
programmes.
Noises
You will hear a pumping sound when
the appliance is switched on, during
use and after switching it off. This is the
sound of water being pumped through
the system and is quite normal.
When the steam oven is in use, you will
hear a fan noise.

Heating-up phase
During the heating-up phase the
display will show the temperature in the
cooking compartment as it rises and
Heating-up phase in all programmes
except for Automatic progs., Menu
cooking and Maintenance.
When cooking with steam, the duration
of the heating-up phase will depend on
the quantity and the temperature of the
food. In general the heating-up phase
will last for approx. 7 minutes. The
duration will be longer if you are
cooking refrigerated or frozen food.
Cooking phase
The cooking phase begins when the set
temperature is reached. During the
cooking phase, the duration remaining
will be shown in the display.
Steam reduction
With steam cooking and combi
cooking, the steam reduction function
will switch on automatically at the end
of a cooking programme which uses a
temperature within a certain
temperature range. This reduces the
amount of steam which escapes when
the door is opened. Steam reduction will
appear in the display in addition to
Process finished.
This function can be switched off if you
wish (see "Settings - Steam reduction").
Oven interior lighting
For energy saving reasons, the oven
compartment lighting has been set at
the factory to go out after the
programme has begun.
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 programme the oven lighting
will switch off automatically after 5
minutes.
The lighting radiates heat. It will switch
itself off automatically when you are
cooking with a temperature below 50
°C.
If the  sensor on the control panel is
touched, the oven compartment
lighting will come on for 15 seconds.

Set 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
the appliance is located at. This
procedure also flushes out the
waterways.
This procedure must be carried out
to ensure efficient functioning of your
appliance.
Only use cold mains tap water
(less than 20 °C). Never use distilled
or mineral water or other liquids.
 Remove the water container (on the
right) and fill it up to the maximum
marker.
 Push the water container into the
appliance until it connects.
 You should then run the Steam cooking
programme at 100 °C for 15 minutes.
Proceed as described in "Operation:
Steam cooking".
Set the correct boiling point for
water following a house move
If you move house, the appliance will
need to be re-set for the new altitude if
this differs from the old one by 300 m
or more. To do this, descale the
appliance (see "Cleaning and care /
Maintenance / Descaling").
Heating up the appliance
 To remove the grease from the ring
heating element, heat the appliance
up with nothing in it at 200 °C
using the Fan plus function for
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 vapours 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.
