An oven with a camera that identifies food and controls the cooking process. Another digital aid that provides step-by-step assistance during frying. And a washer-dryer that’s smarter and more convenient than anything before. These are just some of the highlights that the Gütersloh-based family-run Miele company unveiled this morning at its IFA press conference. It also provided an insight into the company’s business situation, reporting sales figures that actually surpassed those of the previous year. The information was delivered by Dr. Axel Kniehl (Executive Director Marketing and Sales) and Dr. Reinhard Zinkann (Executive Director and Co-Proprietor).
The camera in the oven identifies the food and controls the cooking process, while another digital aid provides step-by-step assistance when frying: with new intelligent assistance systems, Miele is launching a holistic digital cooking experience. The control centre for cooking and many other applications is the Miele Smart Home App. Featuring a modern design and new content, it really makes the smart home fun!
Miele has further enhanced its proven WT1 washer-dryer series by adding practical features which make washing and drying in the smallest of spaces even more convenient. Even small loads can be washed and dried quickly and in an environmentally friendly manner. What’s more, thanks to its new digital services, the new WT1 is the smartest washer-dryer on the market. Sales are due to commence in certain countries from October.
With CookAssist, Miele is making frying easier and safer than ever before. As the app guides the user through the entire frying process step by step, challenging classic dishes such as steak, salmon fillets and blueberry pancakes can now be cooked perfectly without any prior cookery knowledge. Best results can also be achieved with more intricate recipes such as sweet potato or aubergine tapas. Constant temperature adjustments and burnt food are now a thing of the past!
When it comes to delivering first-class user convenience and perfect cooking results for a wide range of dishes, Miele cookers and ovens are constantly setting new standards. Take, for example, cooking with the Moisture plus function, the easy-to-clean PerfectClean coating, the wireless food probe and, last but not least, the first oven camera that is able to withstand pyrolytic cleaning. Now, the Gütersloh family-run company is equipping its Generation 7000 ovens with a new feature which is unique worldwide: A smart cooking assistant based on artificial intelligence and easy to install by remote update.
Miele’s range of countertop coffee machines has an impressive new series: the CM6 MilkPerfection, whose abilities come into their own when preparing drink varieties with milk. The standout features in this series of machines also include intuitive operation, easier cleaning and other innovations. It is set to be launched in three versions and seven colours in September.
As more and more people move to expensive urban accommodation, they have to make the most out of every available centimetre – and that includes the space in their kitchens. Luckily, Miele’s new slim dishwashers are the perfect fit. Measuring just 45 centimetres wide, the G 5000 SL generation offers a host of high-quality, convenient features that have so far been the preserve of larger appliances: extremely convenient loading, top performance and, of course, networking. The appliances are being launched on the market in September.

An unimaginable 1.3 billion tonnes of food are thrown away every year. Germany alone contributes 12 million tonnes of that, with more than half attributable to households. To combat this, we need a more conscious approach to how we handle food – and an ultra-effective freshness system in our fridges. Thanks to its PerfectFresh Active technology, Miele’s new Generation K 7000 refrigeration appliances are heralding a future with superior food storage conditions. Not only that, but the appliances are also setting new standards in user convenience and lighting.
When developing new washing machines and tumble dryers, Miele consistently strives to create products that have as little impact on the environment as possible, but still deliver top performance and the ultimate in user convenience. This approach has resulted in outstanding innovations like the highly efficient PowerWash technique and the TwinDos dispensing system. Now, the company is delivering these and other premium features at highly appealing prices – with a networking option included in the package for even more benefits. The ModernLife promotional range is set to be launched in some countries from September onwards and will be available for six months.
On account of the Coronavirus, the IFA trade show will this year take place as announced in a reduced form, supported by digital platforms and a Global Press Conference (Special Edition 2020, September 3-5).
