A functionally and aesthetically matching pair

Gütersloh, February 5, 2019 No. 7/2019
  • Gourmet warmer drawer and vacuum-sealing drawer far more than just complementary appliances

  • Pre-warming crockery now possible by smartphone

Gourmet warmer drawers and a vacuum-sealing drawer do a perfect job in rounding off the culinary lineup of the 7000 generation of built-in appliances, and constitute an important part of the Miele design system. In comparison to their predecessors, technical details on these products have undergone improvement.

Warmer drawers are available in two sizes – with heights of 14 and 29 cm. These numbers are by no means arbitrary. A 45 cm wall oven with integrated microwave together with a smaller Gourmet warmer drawer fit snugly into a classic 60 cm oven recess. The functional outcome is a highly versatile couplet of appliances from the same design mould as all drawers feature a Push2open mechanism and are handleless.

Separate operating modes facilitate pre-heating crockery, keeping food warm or even low-temperature cooking. On the new generation, temperature control is even more precise than on the previous range - a boon to delicate foods when slow cooking. The new Gourmet warmer drawers are now linked using the Miele@mobile app. If required, the drawer can be switched on remotely, ensuring pre-warmed cups on arrival back home. Also new is the fact that the app can be used to set the temperature in low-temperature cooking operations very precisely and to pre-programme the cooking time.

Vacuum for extended storage life and intensive flavour

Vacuum-sealed in a plastic bag, then cooked sous-vide: Many gourmets would never more wish to do without this method of cooking in view of the fine flavour and the tender texture of foodstuffs. A vacuum-sealing drawer together with a Miele steam oven produces another kindred couplet – functional because all Miele steam ovens sport a sous-vide setting with precise temperature controls and matching in design, providing an elegant ensemble for a 60 cm recess. New on the 7000-series vacuum-sealing drawer: Miele has equipped the appliance with an additional component which simplifies the use of smaller plastic bags.

The vacuum sealing of food in plastic bags offers several benefits: The removal of oxygen extends the storage life of food several times over. This makes vacuum sealing an interesting proposition for keeping food fresh. An intensive flavour is achieved by marinating meat followed by vacuum sealing as a vacuum lets aromas penetrate deeper into the meat. Once in the bag, food is cooked over an extended period of time at a constantly held low temperature.

To match the four design lines, Gourmet warmer drawers are available in graphite grey, obsidian black, brilliant white, obsidian black with narrow stainless-steel trim or with a fully stainless front. Vacuum-sealing drawers are exclusively available with coloured glass fronts.
