~ During installation, maintenance and
repair work, the appliance must be
disconnected from the mains electricity
supply. It is only completely isolated
from the electricity supply when:
– the mains fuse is disconnected,
– the screw-out fuse is removed (in
countries where this is applicable),
– it is switched off at the isolator.
Ensure that current is not supplied to
the appliance until after maintenance
or repair work has been carried out.
~ Faulty components must only be
replaced by genuine Miele original
spare parts. The manufacturer can only
guarantee the safety of the appliance
when Miele replacement parts are
used.
~ If the supply cord is damaged, it
must be replaced by a Miele approved
service technician to avoid a hazard.
~ This appliance may only be used in
mobile installations such as ships,
caravans, aircraft etc. if a risk
assessment of the installation has been
carried out by a suitably qualified
engineer.
~ In countries where there are areas
which may be subject to infestation by
cockroaches or other vermin, pay
particular attention to keeping the
appliance and its surroundings in a
clean condition at all times. Any
damage which may be caused by
cockroaches or other vermin will not be
covered by the guarantee.
Correct use
Caution. Danger of burning.
High temperatures are produced by
the oven.
~ Use oven gloves when placing food
in the oven, turning or removing it and
when adjusting oven shelves etc. in a
hot oven. Be very careful that you do
not burn yourself on the top heating /
grill element.
~ Never leave the appliance
unattended when cooking with oil or
fats, as these are a fire hazard if
allowed to overheat.
~ Do not exceed the recommended
grilling times when using the "Full grill",
"Economy grill" and "Fan grill" functions.
Excessively long grilling times can lead
to food drying out and burning, or could
even cause it to catch fire.
~ Do not use the "Full grill", "Economy
grill" or "Fan grill" to finish baking par-
cooked rolls or bread or to dry flowers
or herbs. Fire hazard.
Use "Fan plus" or "Conventional heat"
instead.
Warning and Safety instructions

~ If using alcohol in your recipes, high
temperatures can cause the alcohol to
vaporise and even to ignite on the hot
heating elements.
Alcohol should be burnt off before the
dish is placed in the oven to avoid this
danger.
~ Cover any food which is left in the
oven to be kept hot. Any moisture in the
food could lead to corrosion damage in
the oven. This also prevents the food
from drying out.
~ If you wish to complete a cooking
process using the residual heat in the
oven, leave the oven at the function
selected and select the lowest
temperature for that function. Do not
switch the appliance off until the food
has been removed. Increased moisture
in the oven could cause condensation
to form which could lead to
– corrosion in the oven compartment.
– damage to the control panel, worktop
and surrounding kitchen furniture.
~ Do not line the floor of the oven with
aluminium foil when using
"Conventional"/ "Bottom heat" /
"Intensive bake".
This would cause a build-up of heat
which could cause damage to the floor
of the oven.
For this reason do not place a dish, tin
or baking tray directly on the oven floor.
If using a tray made by a different
manufacturer, make sure that there is a
gap of at least 6 cm between the
bottom of the tray and the floor of the
oven.
~ Never add cold water to food on a
hot universal tray, baking tray or
directly onto food in a hot oven. The
steam created could cause serious
burns or scalding and the sudden
change in temperature can damage the
enamel.
~ Always ensure that food is suitably
cooked or reheated.
Some foods may contain micro-
organisms which are only destroyed by
thorough cooking at temperatures over
70 °C for a minimum of 10 minutes.
Therefore when cooking or reheating
foods, e.g. poultry, it is particularly
important that food is fully cooked
through. If in doubt select a longer
cooking or reheating time.
It is important that the heat is allowed to
spread evenly throughout the food
being cooked. This can be achieved
by stirring and/or turning the food
during cooking.
~ If using plastic containers for
cooking, they must be declared by the
manufacturer as being suitable for use
in an oven. Other types of plastic
containers melt at high temperatures,
and could damage the oven.
Warning and Safety instructions
10
Page: 10
~ Do not heat up unopened tins or jars
of food in the oven. Pressure can build
up and they may explode, resulting in
injury or damage.
~ Do not push pots and pans around
on the oven floor, as this could damage
the surface.
~ Do not lean or sit on an open oven
door, or place heavy items on it. Make
sure that nothing gets trapped between
the door and the oven compartment.
This could damage the oven.
The oven door can support a maximum
load of 15 kg.
~ Do not use the appliance to heat up
the room. Due to the high temperatures
radiated, objects near the appliance
could catch fire.
Accessories
~ Only use genuine Miele spare parts
and accessories with this appliance. If
spare parts or accessories from other
manufacturers are used, this will
invalidate the guarantee, and Miele
cannot accept liability.
~ Remove all accessories as well as
the runners and any extra accessories
such as Flexi-Clip runners from the
oven interior before starting the
pyrolytic cleaning process. The high
temperatures needed for pyrolysis will
damage the accessories.
~ Only use the Miele food probe
supplied with this oven.
If a replacement is necessary it can be
obtained from the Miele Spare Parts
Department or your Miele dealer.
The manufacturer cannot be held
liable for damage caused by non-
compliance with these Warning and
safety instructions.

Oven controls
In addition to operating the various
cooking programmes to bake, roast
and grill, the controls also offer the
following:
– a time of day display,
– a minute minder,
– a timer for programming cooking
durations,
– user programmes,
– automatic programmes,
– settings that can be customised.
Auto sensor
This sensor controls
– the cooking duration of the automatic
programmes. This will be indicated in
the display.
– the cooling fan run-on time.
– the duration of the pyrolytic cleaning
process.
Safety features
System lock
The system lock 0 prevents the oven
from being used unintentionally by
children, for example. See "Settings -
Safety".
Safety switch-off
Safety switch-off is triggered
automatically if the oven is operated for
an unusually long period of time. The
period of time will depend on the oven
function selected.
Cooling system
A cooling fan will come on
automatically when a cooking
programme is started. The cooling fan
mixes hot air from the oven cavity with
cool room air before venting it out into
the kitchen through vents located
between the appliance door and the
control panel.
The cooling fan will continue to run for a
while after the oven has been switched
off to prevent any humidity building up
in the oven, on the control panel or on
the oven housing unit.
Vented oven door
The oven door is an open system and
some of the door panes have a heat-
reflecting coating. During operation,
cool air is passed through the oven
door to keep the outer pane cool.
If necessary, the oven door can be
dismantled for cleaning.
Door lock for pyrolytic operation
For safety reasons the door locks as
soon as the pyrolytic cleaning
programme starts. After the pyrolytic
programme has finished, the door will
remain locked until the temperature in
the oven has dropped below 280°C.

Energy saving features
Lighting
The oven lighting is set to switch off
15 seconds after the start of a cooking
programme (default setting). See
"Settings - Lighting".
Door contact switch
If the oven door is opened during
operation, the door contact switch
automatically switches off the heating
elements and the fan, if a "Fan" setting
is being used. This helps reduce the
amount of heat lost from the oven
interior, e.g. when basting roast meat.
At the same time, the oven lighting is
switched on.
Using residual heat
The oven heating switches off
automatically shortly before the end of
a cooking programme where the
cooking duration has been
programmed or the food probe is being
used.
The residual heat in the oven is
sufficient to complete the cooking
process.
"Energy save" will appear in the display.
The cooling fan continues to run, as
does the hot air fan if a "Fan" setting
has been chosen.
Energy save mode
The oven switches off automatically to
save energy if, at the end of an Auto-
matic programme or a cooking
programme with Automatic switch-off,
no other cooking function is selected
within a certain time period.
This time period depends on the
settings selected (cooking function,
temperature, cooking duration).
Either the time of day is displayed or
the display is dark: see "Settings - Time
- Display".

Pre-heating the oven
Most dishes can be placed in a cold
oven. They will then make use of the
heat produced during the heating
phase.
It is only necessary to pre-heat the oven
in a few instances:
With Fan plus
– pre-heating may be necessary for
foods which cook in less than 20
minutes and for foods such as puff
pastry and yeast mixtures where
instant heat is required to make them
rise quickly.
– roasting beef/fillet.
With Conventional heat
– It is usually necessary to pre-heat the
oven.
– baking pastry and cheesecake/flan
bases,
– pre-heating may be necessary for
foods which cook in less than
30 minutes and for foods such as
puff pastry and yeast mixtures where
instant heat is required to make them
rise quickly.
– roasting beef/fillet.
The Rapid heat-up phase should be
switched off when baking pizza,
biscuits and small cakes. Otherwise
they will brown too quickly from the

The "Moisture plus" function uses a
steam injection system.
Water is taken into the steam injection
system via the tube underneath the
control panel on the left. The water is
then injected as bursts of steam into the
oven compartment during the cooking
process.
The steam inlets are located at the rear
left corner of the roof of the oven.
,Only use water with this function.
Other liquids will damage the
appliance.
Baking, roasting or cooking with
Moisture plus uses just the right amount
of steam and optimum air flow for very
even cooking and baking results:
delicious fresh bread with a glossy
crust; rolls and croissants as good as
the baker makes; tender, succulent
meat with a well browned finish;
perfectly finished oven bakes; delicious
soufflés and much more.
Please refer to the "Moisture plus"
booklet supplied with your oven for
further information and a selection of
recipes.
Moisture plus is not suitable for
mixtures which already contain a lot of
moisture, such as choux pastry and
meringues, as the addition of steam
does not allow them to dry out
sufficiently.
Moisture plus is activated with Automat-
ic programmes or you can select the
special "Moisture plus" function.
,The steam injection system
should be rinsed through before you
use an Automatic programme with
Moisture plus or the Moisture plus
function for the first time.
To do this, run the oven using
"Moisture plus - 160 °C - Automatic
burst of steam" for about 30 minutes.
Moisture plus

Automatic programmes
Automatic programmes with Moisture
plus set the optimium temperature, the
degree of moisture and also the
duration automatically.
At the beginning of the programme you
will be prompted to allow a specified
amount of water to be drawn into the
oven.
The amount of water specified will be
more than the amount which is actually
needed which means that some of the
water will remain in the container as not
all of it will be drawn up into the oven.
The programme will control how many
bursts of steam are required and at
what point they are injected.
Night baking
Some of the Automatic programmes for
bread and rolls have the option of
baking during the night, so that you can
enjoy freshly baked bread for breakfast
the next morning.
The "Finish" option will appear when
you have selected the programme.
When "Finish" is selected, a finish time
will appear which is the cooking
duration for the programme plus five or
six hours, depending on programme.
You can change this to the time you
want the bread to be ready at the next
morning.
Follow the instructions which then
appear in the display.
Moisture plus
41
Page: 41
Moisture plus d
When using the Moisture plus function
you will need to enter
– the temperature (at least 130 °C),
and
– the number of bursts of steam.
You can also enter the cooking duration
or you can use the food probe.
Number of bursts of steam and when
they are injected
The number of bursts of steam and
when they are injected will depend on
the type of food being cooked:
– Dough mixtures will rise better if
steam is injected at the beginning of
the programme.
– Bread and rolls also rise better if
exposed to steam at the start.
Injecting a burst of steam at the end
of the programme will give the bread
and rolls a glistening crust.
– When roasting meat with a high fat
content injecting steam at the
beginning of roasting will draw out
the fat.
Please refer to the sample recipes in
the "Moisture plus" booklet.
After selecting Moisture plus you need
to set the number of bursts of steam.
The options are:
ß Automatic
This requires enough water for one
burst of steam. The burst of steam
will be injected into the oven
automatically after the heating-up
phase.
Steam is injected for about
5 minutes.
ß 1 burst of steam
ß 2 bursts of steam
ß 3 bursts of steam
The quantity of water required will
depend on the number of bursts of
steam.
The earliest point at which steam can
be injected is after the heating-up
phase has been completed.
One burst of steam takes approx.
5 minutes to be injected into the
oven.
It is a good idea to set the minute
minder to remind you when to inject
the bursts of steam required.
It is quite normal for condensation to
form on the inside of the door during
steam injection. This will dissipate
during the course of the cooking
programme.

3 bursts of steam:approx. 250 ml
^ Pull the fill tube forwards (located
below the control panel on the left).
^ Hold a container with the quantity of
water specified under the tube as
shown. Start the water intake process
with "OK".
The amount of water required will be
drawn up into the oven. As the water is
taken in, bars will appear in the display.
The amount of water specified will be
more than the amount which is actually
needed which means that some of the
water will remain in the container as not
all of it will be drawn up into the oven.
When you close the oven door you will
hear the noise of the pump briefly.
– Automatic burst of steam
^ Once the heating-up phase has been
completed, the automatic burst of
steam is injected and the water will
vaporise in the oven compartment.
Once the steam has been injected
successfully, the programme will
continue to the end.
– Injecting bursts of steam manually
Once the heating-up phase has
finished, the bursts of steam can be
injected at the intervals given in the
recipe.
Set the minute minder N as a reminder.
When it is time to inject steam:
^ Select "Release steam".
The water will vaporise in the oven
compartment.
If more bursts of steam are required,
proceed as described above.
Once the steam has been injected
successfully, the programme will
continue to the end.

To evaporate residual moisture
If there is still water in the steam
injection system at the end of a
programme or if the programme is
cancelled, you will be prompted to
evaporate the residual moisture.
This prompt will appear
– when the appliance is switched on,
– when selecting "Moisture plus", or
– when selecting an automatic
programme that uses Moisture plus.
Select "Cancel" to cancel the process
or "OK" to start it.
It is best to start the evaporation
process straight away so that only
fresh water can be used during the
next cooking programme.
The residual moisture evaporation
process
The oven will heat up to approx.
150 °C, and the residual water in the
oven cavity will evaporate.
How long this takes will depend on the
amount of water in the system.
Steam will condense on the door
and the oven cavity, and the
moisture will then need to be wiped
off after the oven has cooled down.
To start the residual moisture
evaporation process
Confirm the prompt "Evaporate residual
moisture" with OK.
The evaporation process will start
immediately. The display will show
the approximate time remaining.
Moisture plus
44
Page: 44
To cancel the residual moisture
evaporation process
After the appliance has been
switched on, the prompt to evaporate
residual moisture will appear in the
display. Touch the sensor next to
"Cancel". You will only be able to run
functions and Automatic programmes
without Moisture plus.
If you select "Moisture plus" or one
of the Automatic programmes with
Moisture plus, the prompt to evaporate
residual moisture will appear immedi-
ately.
If you do not want to start the residual
moisture evaporation process, you will
need to press the Cancel sensor for at
least 3 seconds.
You can now start the cooking
programme.
,Do not cancel the prompt for
residual moisture evaporation too
often, as this might cause the steam
injection system to overflow when
taking in more water.
Descaling
The oven will need to be descaled
depending on the number of cooking
programmes using Moisture plus which
have been run and the amount of water
taken into the oven for these. This will
be indicated in the display.
The steam injection system should be
descaled regularly. How often this
needs to be done will depend on the
water hardness level in your area.
You can start the descaling process at
any time by selecting "Descale" in the
main menu.
If you do not carry out the descaling
process when the prompt to descale
the oven appears, you will only be able
to run functions and Automatic
programmes without Moisture plus.
See "Cleaning and care" for more
information about descaling.
