Miele upgrades induction hob units with integrated extractor
Vent grille now fitted flush into ceramic glass screen
Miele upgrades its bestseller among its cooking appliances. For greater elegance and improved functionality, the induction hob with its integrated extractor now has a flush-fitted grille.
Pots and pans slide effortlessly across the new, non-protruding extractor grille. And the product's design is on a par with this increased convenience: The reworked hob unit now looks more elegant and harmonises even better with the full glass fronts and the integrated displays on Generation 7000 built-in appliances.
Technically, the 80 cm wide unit remains unchanged. Nor is there any need for this to change as this combination unit excels in terms of performance and use. The two cooking areas to the left and right of the centred extractor, for instance, feature Miele's PowerFlex technology. The unit recognises automatically whether individual pots and pans or larger dishes are in use (permanent pan recognition). For bringing larger volumes of water to an ultra-fast boil, a TwinBooster with a maximum rating of up to 7.3 kW is available.
Vapours and odours are extracted precisely where they occur. The entire ventilation technology is discreetly concealed in the base unit below the hob; the compact design still leaves sufficient space for (reduced-depth) drawers. Customers have a choice of vented or recirculation operation, whereby the latter option is ideal for well-insulated buildings. With Con@ctivity, suction power is automatically adjusted to what is actually happening on the hob. At the end of cooking and a brief fan run-on period, the extractor automatically switches itself off again.
A reliable 10-ply stainless-steel grease filter is encased in an exclusive filter box, ensuring the best possible removal of grease. The box can simply be removed and cleaned in a dishwasher. Behind the grease filters is the so-called CleanCover: A smooth surface without any metal edges or electrical componentry, only available from Miele. It is easy to clean and protects against contact with wires and motor components. And, any liquids from spillages collect in a tray below the extractor grille.
The new hob will be introduced in February 2020 in two versions; one model with an onset stainless-steel frame (KMDA 7634 FR) and one version without a frame (KMDA 7634 FL), which lend themselves to both on-surface and flush installation. The version with an on-set extractor (KMDA 7633 FR/FL) will also remain in the range.
