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.
Disposing 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.

furniture door which can cause damage to the
appliance and the furniture unit. Only close the door
when the appliance is not in use and has cooled down
completely.
~The appliance must not be used in a non-stationary
location (e.g. on a ship).
Warning and Safety instructions
13
Page: 13
Correct use
,Danger of burning. The microwave oven gets hot
during grilling (with and without the microwave
function). You could burn yourself on the oven
interior, grill element, hot food, accessories and oven
door. Use oven gloves when working with hot food in
the oven or placing food in or removing it from the hot
oven.
~Always ensure that food is sufficiently heated.
Many factors will affect the overall cooking time,
including the size and amount of food, its initial
temperature, changes to the recipe, and the shape and
size of the cooking container.
Some foods may contain micro-organisms which are
only destroyed by thorough cooking. Therefore, when
cooking or reheating foods, e.g. poultry, it is
particularly important that food is fully cooked through
(at temperatures over 70 °C for more than 10 minutes).
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, and
observing a sufficiently long standing time, which
should be added to the time needed for cooking,
reheating or defrosting.
Warning and Safety instructions
14
Page: 14
~Exercise caution when cooking or reheating food
with a high sugar content, e.g. Christmas pudding. If
heated for too long, sugar may caramelise and ignite.
~Always remember that times for cooking, reheating
and defrosting in a microwave oven are usually
considerably shorter than with traditional methods of
food preparation.
Excessively long cooking times can lead to food drying
out and burning, or could even cause it to catch fire.
Do not dry breadcrumbs, flowers, herbs, etc., in the
microwave oven as these could catch fire.
~Do not use the microwave function to heat up
cushions or pads filled with cherry kernels, wheat
grains, lavender or gel, such as those used in
aromatherapy. These pads can ignite when heated
even after they have been removed from the
microwave oven.
~The microwave oven is not suitable for cleaning or
disinfecting items.
Items can get extremely hot, and there is a danger of
burning when the item is removed from the appliance.
Fire hazard.
~The appliance can be damaged if it is used without
food being placed in it or if it is incorrectly loaded.
Therefore do not use the appliance to warm empty
dishes or to dry herbs.
Warning and Safety instructions
15
Page: 15
~Always ensure that food has been placed in the
microwave oven and that the turntable is in position
before switching on.
~Do not cook or reheat food or liquids in sealed
containers, jars or bottles. With baby bottles the screw
top and teat must be loosened. Otherwise pressure
builds up which can cause the bottle or container to
explode, posing a severe risk of injury.
~When heating food and drinks, remember that the
heat is created in the food itself and that the container
will normally be cooler. The dish is only warmed by the
heat of the food. Before serving, remember to allow a
sufficient standing time and then always check the
temperature of the food after taking it out of the
microwave oven. The temperature of the container is
not an indication of the temperature of the food or liquid
in it. This is particularly important when preparing
food for babies, children, and the elderly or infirm.
Shake or stir baby milk and food thoroughly after
heating, and try it for temperature to ensure that it will
not scald the baby.
Warning and Safety instructions
16
Page: 16
~When reheating liquids, place the boiling rod
supplied into the cup or glass. It will ensure that the
liquid heats up evenly with bubbles forming at the right
time.
When heating liquids, milk, sauces etc, using
microwave power without the boiling rod, the boiling
point of the liquid may be reached without the
production of typical bubbles. The liquid does not boil
evenly throughout. This so-called 'boiling delay' can
cause a sudden build-up of bubbles when the
container is removed from the microwave oven or
shaken, which can lead to the liquid boiling over
suddenly and explosively. Danger of injury and
damage.
The formation of bubbles can be so strong that the
pressure forces the microwave oven door open, with a
danger of injury and damage.
Warning and Safety instructions
17
Page: 17
~To avoid fuelling any flames, do not open the door if
smoke occurs inside the microwave oven.
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.
~Oil and fat can overheat and catch fire. Do not leave
the appliance unattended when cooking with oil or fat.
Do not use the appliance to fry food. If oil or fat does
catch fire, do not attempt to put out the flames with
water. Disconnect the appliance from the mains
electricity supply and leave the door closed to smother
the flames.
~Due to the high temperatures radiated, objects left
near the microwave oven when it is in use could catch
fire. Do not use the appliance to heat up the room.
~If using alcohol in your recipes, please be aware that
high temperatures can cause the alcohol to vaporise
and even to ignite on hot surfaces. Do not heat
undiluted alcohol in the appliance. Fire hazard.
Warning and Safety instructions
18
Page: 18
~Do not use the appliance to bottle food or heat up
food in tins. Pressure can build up and they may
explode.
~Cover any food which is left in the microwave oven to
be kept hot, as moisture in the food could lead to
corrosion damage in the appliance and could also
damage the control panel, worktop and surrounding
kitchen furniture. Covering the food also prevents it
from drying out.
~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 on the
stainless steel surface.
~The oven interior can get hot during use. Danger of
burning. Clean the appliance interior and accessories
as soon as they have cooled down. Waiting too long
can make cleaning unnecessarily difficult, and in
extreme cases impossible. In certain circumstances
very heavy soiling can damage the appliance and even
be dangerous. Fire hazard.
Please follow the instructions in "Cleaning and care".
Warning and Safety instructions
19
Page: 19
~Fire hazard. Using microwave power with plastic
dishes which are not microwave safe can cause them
to melt and damage the appliance.
Do not use any containers or cutlery made from or
containing metal, aluminium foil, lead crystal
glassware, temperature-sensitive plastics, wooden
utensils or cutlery, metal clips or plastic or paper
covered wire ties. Do not use bowls with milled rims, or
plastic pots with the foil lid only partially removed (see
"Suitable containers for microwave ovens"). Such items
could be damaged or cause a fire hazard.
~Do not leave the microwave oven unattended when
reheating or cooking food in disposable containers
made of plastic, paper or other inflammable materials.
Before using single-use containers make sure they are
suitable for use in microwave ovens. See "Suitable
containers for microwave ovens".
Warning and Safety instructions
20
Page: 20
~Do not reheat food in the oven in heat-retaining bags
intended for normal ovens. These heat-retaining bags
usually contain a thin layer of aluminium foil which
reflects microwaves. This reflected energy can, in turn,
cause the outer paper covering to become so hot that
it ignites.
~Eggs can be cooked without their shells using
microwave power only if the yolk membrane has been
punctured several times first. The pressure could
otherwise cause the egg yolk to explode.
~Eggs can only be cooked in their shells in the
microwave oven in a specially designed egg-boiling
device available from specialist shops. Hard boiled
eggs should not be reheated in the microwave oven as
this may lead to the eggs bursting even after they have
been taken out of the appliance.
~Food with a thick skin or peel, such as tomatoes,
sausages, jacket potatoes and aubergines, should be
pierced or the skin cut in several places before cooking
to allow steam to escape and prevent food from
bursting.
Warning and Safety instructions
21
Page: 21
~Dishes with hollow knobs or handles are not suitable
for use with microwave power. Moisture which has
gathered in the hollow recesses can cause pressure to
build up and the item can explode. If the hollow recess
is sufficiently ventilated, the item could be used.
However, we recommend that you do not use such
dishes in the microwave oven.
~To check the temperature of the food, first interrupt
the cooking process. Only use a thermometer
specifically approved for food use to measure the
temperature of the food. Do not use a thermometer
containing mercury or liquid as these are not suitable
for use with high temperatures and break very easily.
~Do not use a steam cleaning appliance to clean the
microwave oven. Steam could reach electrical

In a microwave oven there is a
high-frequency tube called a
magnetron. This converts electrical
energy into microwaves. These
microwaves are distributed evenly
throughout the oven interior, and
rebound off the metal sides of the oven
interior to reach the food from all sides.
Microwave distribution is improved with
the turntable engaged.
In order for microwaves to reach the
food, they must be able to penetrate
the cooking utensil being used.
Microwaves can penetrate porcelain,
glass, cardboard and plastics, but not
metal. Do not, therefore, use utensils
made of metal, or which contain metal,
for example in the form of gold or silver
trim. The metal reflects the microwaves
and this could cause sparking. The
microwaves cannot be absorbed.
Microwaves pass through a suitable
container and find their way directly into
the food. All food contains moisture
molecules which, when subjected to
microwave energy, start to oscillate 2.5
thousand million times a second. The
friction caused by this vibration creates
heat, which first starts developing
around the outside of the food and then
slowly penetrates towards the centre.
The moisture, fat and sugar content of
food will affect the speed at which it is
cooked.
As heat is produced directly in the
food,
– food can generally be cooked
without adding much liquid or
cooking oil.
– cooking, reheating and defrosting in
a microwave oven is quicker than
using conventional methods.
– nutrients, such as vitamins and
minerals, are generally retained.
– the colour, texture and taste of food
are not impaired.
Microwaves stop being produced as
soon as the cooking process is
interrupted or the appliance door is
opened.
When the appliance is in operation, the
closed, sealed door prevents
microwaves escaping from the
appliance.
How the microwave oven works
25

What can a microwave oven
do?
In the microwave oven, food can be
cooked, reheated or defrosted quickly.
You can use the microwave oven in the
following ways:
– Food can be defrosted, reheated or
cooked by entering a power setting
and a duration.
– Deep-frozen, ready-made meals can
be defrosted and then reheated or
cooked.
– The microwave oven can also be
used for other tasks, e.g. for proving
dough, melting chocolate and butter,
dissolving gelatine etc.
Microwave oven functions
Microwave Solo mode
Suitable for defrosting, reheating and
cooking.
Grilling
Ideal for grilling very thin cuts of meat,
e.g. steak or sausages.
Combination mode
(Microwave + Grill)
Ideal for browning dishes with
toppings. The microwave cooks the
food, and the grill browns it.
Automatic programmes
You can choose from the following
Automatic programmes:
– nine defrosting programmes
(): Ad 1 to Ad 9),
– Four cooking programmes for frozen
food
() 2: Ac 1 to Ac 4 )
– and ten cooking programmes for
fresh food
(2: Ac 5 to Ac 14).
These programmes are weight
dependent. You enter the weight of the
food and then the cooking duration is
calculated automatically.
The weight of the food can be
displayed as metric (g) or imperial (lb).
See "Changing settings"
In addition to these, there is also the
automatic Popcorn programme Æ.
Modes of operation
26
Page: 26
Microwaves
– are reflected by metal,
– pass through glass, porcelain,
plastic and card,
– and are absorbed by food.
,Fire hazard. Containers which
are not suitable for use in microwave
ovens can be badly damaged and
can cause damage to the appliance
if used.
Material and shape
The material and shape of containers
used affect cooking results and
durations. Heat distribution is more
even in round and oval shaped flat
containers than in rectangular
containers, providing better results.
Containers and lids with hollow
handles or knobs in which moisture
can collect are unsuitable, unless
the hollowed handles are
adequately vented.
Without vent holes, pressure can
build up, causing the container to
crack or shatter with the danger of
injury.
Metal
Metal containers, aluminium foil,
metal cutlery, and china with
metallic decoration such as gold
rims or cobalt blue must not be used
with microwave mode.
Metal reflects microwaves and
obstructs the cooking process.
Also, avoid using plastic pots where
the foil lid has not been completely
removed.
Suitable containers for microwave ovens
27
Page: 27
Exceptions:
– Ready-meals in aluminium foil
dishes.
These can be defrosted and reheated
in the microwave oven, if
recommended by the manufacturer.
Important: Remove the lid and make
sure the foil dish is at least 2 cm from
the oven walls at all times.
As food is only heated from the top, it is
better to remove the food from the
aluminium foil container and transfer it
to a dish suitable for a microwave oven.
The heat distribution will be more even.
Do not place aluminium foil dishes
on the rack in case the dish sparks
or arcs. If sparks occur, transfer
food to a microwave safe container.
– Pieces of aluminium foil
For even defrosting and to avoid
overcooking unevenly shaped cuts of
meat, poultry or fish, small pieces of
aluminium foil may be used to mask
wingtips or other thin parts for the last
few minutes of the programme.
Make sure that the aluminium foil is
at least 2 cm from the oven walls at
all times. It must not touch the walls.
– Metal meat skewers or clamps
These should only be used if they are
very small in comparison to the size of
the cut of meat.
Glassware
Heat-resistant glass or ceramic glass
are ideal for use in the microwave oven.
Crystal glass is unsuitable as it
contains lead which could cause the
glass to crack in the microwave
oven.
Porcelain
Porcelain is a suitable material.
Do not use porcelain with gold or
silver edging or items with hollow
knobs or handles, as insufficient
ventilation may cause pressure.
Earthenware
Decorated earthenware is only suitable
if the decoration is beneath an all-over
glaze.
Earthenware can get very hot and
may crack.
Glazes and colours
Some glazes and colours contain
metals which make them unsuitable
for use in a microwave oven.
Wood
Wooden dishes are not suitable.
Moisture contained in the wood
evaporates when exposed to
microwave energy, causing the
wood to dry and crack.
Suitable containers for microwave ovens
28
Page: 28
Plastics
Plastics must only be used with
Microwave Solo.
They must be heat-resistant to a
minimum of 110 °C. Otherwise the
plastic may melt and fuse with the
food.
Special plastic utensils designed for
use in microwave ovens are available
from retail outlets.
Melamine is not suitable as it absorbs
energy and gets hot. When purchasing
plasticware, make sure that it is suitable
for use in a microwave oven.
Disposable containers, such as trays
made from polystyrene, can only be
used for very short, timed warming and
reheating of food.
Plastic boiling bags can be used for
cooking and reheating. They should
be pierced beforehand so that
steam can escape. This prevents a
build-up of pressure and reduces
the risk of the bag bursting.
There are also special steaming
bags available which do not need to
be pierced. Please follow
instructions given on the packet.
Do not use metal clips, plastic clips
containing metal parts, or paper ties
containing wire. There is a danger
that they will ignite when heated.
Disposable containers
Only those plastic disposable
containers which are specified by the
manufacturer as suitable for use in a
microwave oven may be used.
Do not leave the oven unattended
when reheating or cooking food in
disposable containers made of
plastic, paper or other inflammable
materials.
Disposable containers are not always
recyclable or biodegradable.

Testing dishes for their
suitability
If in doubt as to whether glass,
earthenware or porcelain plates or
dishes are suitable for use in a
microwave oven, a simple test can be
performed:
^ Place the item you wish to test in the
centre of the oven, fill a suitable glass
with water and also place this in the
oven.
^ Close the door.
^ Turn the power selector to 900 W.
^ Enter a duration of 30 seconds with
the time selector.
^ Touch "Start".
At the end of the test, the water in
the glass should be warm and the
dish cool. If the dish is hot, it would
be unwise to use the dish.
If a cracking noise is heard
accompanied by sparks during the
test, switch the appliance off
immediately by touching the "On/Off"
sensor. Any crockery which causes
this reaction is unsuitable for use
with microwave power. If any doubt
exists about the suitability of a
container, please contact the
supplier.
This test cannot be used to check
whether items with hollow knobs or
handles are suitable for use with
microwave power.
Suitable containers for microwave ovens
30
Page: 30
The cover
– prevents too much steam escaping,
especially when cooking foods which
need longer to cook such as
potatoes.
– speeds up the cooking process.
– prevents food from drying out.
– helps keep the oven interior clean.
Always cover food with the cover
supplied.
Alternatively, use lids or covers made of
microwave safe glass or plastic, or use
a clingfilm recommended for use in a
microwave oven (pierce as instructed
by the manufacturer).
Heat can cause normal clingfilm to
distort and fuse with the food.
,Sealed containers and glass
jars, such as jars of baby food, must
be opened before they are placed in
the oven. With baby bottles the
screw top and teat must be
loosened. Otherwise, pressure
builds up and can cause the bottle
or container to explode.
Do not use a lid or cover if
– food coated with breadcrumbs is
being cooked.
– cooking meals which are to be given
a crisp finish.
– the gourmet plate is being used.
,The cover must only be used
with Microwave Solo mode.
Because the cover can only
withstand temperatures of up to
110 °C, it must only be used in
microwave solo mode and without
the gourmet plate. At temperatures
in excess of 110 °C, the plastic can
melt and fuse with the food.
The cover should not form a seal
with the container. If the cover is
used with a container which only has
a narrow diameter, there might not
be enough room for condensation to
escape through the holes in the top.
The cover could get too hot and
could start to melt.
Suitable containers for microwave ovens

After installation, let the appliance
stand for approx. 2 hours at room
temperature before using it.
This is important for the correct
electronic functioning of the appliance.
,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.
^ Remove all the packaging materials
from the appliance.
Do not remove the cover to the
microwave outlet inside the oven.
^ Check the appliance for any
damage.
Do not use the microwave oven if
– the door is warped.
– the door hinges are loose.
– holes or cracks are visible in the
casing, the door or the oven interior
walls.
Operating the appliance with this
type of damage will result in
microwave leakage and present a
hazard to the user.
^ Clean the inside of the oven and all
the accessories with hot water
applied with a well wrung-out soft
sponge or cloth.
^ Stick the enclosed short instructions
to the frame behind the door as
illustrated, making sure they do not
block any of the vents.
Before using for the first time

Opening the door
If the microwave oven is being used,
opening the door will interrupt the
cooking programme.
,Danger of injury.
The door can support a maximum
load of 8 kg. Children could injure
themselves on the open door. Do
not allow children to lean against the
open oven door, to sit on it or swing
on it.
Placing the dish in the oven
Ideally the dish should be placed in the
middle of the oven.
Turntable
The turntable helps the food to cook,
reheat or defrost evenly.
Do not operate the microwave oven
without the turntable in place.
The turntable starts turning
automatically when the appliance is
operated.
Do not cook, reheat or defrost food
directly on the turntable. Check that the
dish is not larger in size than the
turntable.
Stir the food during the cooking time, or
turn the dish so that it heats up evenly.
Closing the door
Close the door and touch "Start" again
to resume an interrupted cooking
programme.
Starting a programme

the microwave power level and the
cooking duration.
^ Use the power selector to select a
microwave power level.
The h symbol and the power level
selected light up in the display 00:00
flashes in the display for entering the
minutes.
There is a choice of 7 power levels.
The higher the power level, the more
microwaves reach the food.
Operation
34
Page: 34
When heating up food which cannot be
stirred or turned during cooking, as with
a plated meal, it is best to use a lower
microwave power level.
This ensures the heat is distributed
evenly. Heat for long enough to cook
the food properly.
^ Set the required duration using the
time selector.
Any duration between 10 seconds and
90 minutes can be selected.
Exception: if the maximum microwave
power is selected, a maximum cooking
duration of 15 minutes can be set. If a
longer duration at full power is
selected, the power level reduces
automatically to 600 W, and this is
shown in the display (protection against
overheating).
The duration required depends on:
– the initial temperature of the food.
Food taken from the refrigerator will
need longer to reheat or cook than
food already at room temperature.
– the type and texture of the food.
Fresh vegetables contain more water
and cook more quickly than stored
vegetables.
– the frequency of stirring or turning
the food.
Frequent stirring or turning heats the
food more evenly, and it is therefore
ready in a shorter time.
– the amount of food.
As a general rule, allow approx. time
and a half for double the quantity
and for a smaller quantity, possibly
shorten the duration. However,
always ensure that food is cooked
thoroughly as the duration required
will vary depending on the type of
food.
– the shape and material of the
container.
^ Touch "Start" to start the programme.
The interior lighting comes on.
A programme can only be started if the
door is closed.
"door" message

The grill has 4 settings: solo, and in
combination with the microwave
function using 3 microwave/grill
settings.
If the total grilling duration required is
less than 15 minutes, the grill should be
pre-heated for approx. 5 minutes
before placing food under it.
Thin, flat cuts of fish and meat should
usually be turned half way through
grilling for even results. Larger,
chunkier pieces should be turned
several times.
Grilling durations depend on the type
and thickness of the food and on the
user's preference for a rare or
well-cooked result.
When grilling directly on the rack, a
heat-resistant, microwave safe
container should be placed underneath
the rack to catch any fat or juices.
Note: The glass tray available from
Miele as an optional extra is ideal for
this.
The gourmet plate supplied is not
suitable for catching fat as it could
overheat when empty, resulting in
damage to the coating of the plate.
^ Place the food in a suitable dish.
^ Place the rack and a heat-resistant,
microwave safe container or the
glass tray or the container with the
food to be cooked on the turntable.
,Caution. The rack and glass tray
become hot during use.
Take care not to burn yourself.
The container and grill rack will be
easier to clean if washed in soapy
water immediately after grilling.

Use
The gourmet plate gets extremely
hot when in use. Always use oven
gloves when handling it to avoid
burns. Place it on a suitable
heat-resistant mat or pot rest.
Before using for the first time
Before using the gourmet plate for the
first time, fill it with 400 ml water and
add 3-4 tbsps vinegar or lemon juice.
Heat for 5 minutes on 450 W + Grill x.
The gourmet plate has an
easy-to-clean non-stick coating so
that food can be removed easily.
The coating is susceptible to cuts
and scratches. Therefore do not cut
food up directly on the plate.
Use wooden or plastic utensils to
mix or turn food. Metallic or sharp
objects can damage the coating.
Searing/browning food
Because food does not stick to the
non-stick coating, only very little fat or
oil is necessary when cooking with this
dish. This has the added advantage of
keeping down the calorie count.
Never leave the gourmet plate
unattended when cooking with oil or
fats, as these can overheat and
catch fire. Fire hazard.
^ When using the gourmet plate, make
sure that the food is ready to transfer
to the gourmet plate as soon as it has
heated up.
^ Place the gourmet plate directly on
the turntable.
Do not place it on the rack. Make
sure there is a gap of approx. 2 cm
between the gourmet plate and the
interior walls of the microwave oven,
otherwise sparking could occur and
damage the gourmet plate and the
oven interior.
^ Heat the plate up on 450 W + Grill
x for up to 5 minutes.
Do not overheat the empty gourmet
plate, otherwise the coating could
be damaged. For this reason do not
place the gourmet plate under the
rack to catch the fat when grilling.
If using oil, you can either heat up the
oil on the gourmet plate, or you can
heat the oil separately and then add it
to the plate.
Butter, however, should always be
added after heating up the gourmet
plate. It has a lower burning point than
oil and would get too dark or burn if
added too soon.
Always dry meat, poultry, fish and
vegetables thoroughly before placing
them on the gourmet plate.
Do not use the gourmet plate to
cook eggs or reheat cooked eggs.
The eggs can explode.
