Miele Takes On Technology
Smart And Helpful Innovations From Miele Allow For An Enhanced User Experience.
Miele really stays true to its “Immer Besser” philosophy of being forever better by constantly implementing new, innovative features to its products. Take the range of smart appliances for example. Miele’s connectivity-enabled appliances are convenient and innovative, and it’s also just super cool. FoodView, barista support, and laundry care are just a few things offered by Miele to create a smarter home.
Take a look at the FoodView system, which transmit true-to-colour images in HD quality from the interior of a Miele oven to a smartphone or tablet PC. This is a practical and cool invention for chefs and home cooks everywhere who rely on their expert visual senses to assist in their cooking. Anyone who cooks will know you shouldn’t open the oven door when it’s in use as it will interrupt the cooking or baking process. With FoodView, you never have to worry about that again. FoodView is available on various flagship models such as the classic 60 cm wall ovens and 90 cm wide models.
Another feature called Mix & Match works with Miele’s Generation 7000 combination steam oven. This application heightens convenience as available ingredients are combined to produce a dish that’s prepared less than 30 minutes. Matching ingredients are picked and mixed in the app and prepared with a Mix & Match programme as a complete dish.
If you’re a coffee afficionado, you’re going to love Miele’s BaristaAssistant. This feature talks the user through the beverage preparation process step by step, allowing anyone to become a barista. The fascinating part is that it caters to each user’s personal preferences too. In the first stage, the Miele CVA 7000 coffee machine prepares two different shots for a taste comparison. The favoured one goes on to the next round of sampling, where the settings are even more finely tuned. By the end of up to four comparison rounds, a personal favourite has been created, and this perfected drink is used as a basis for future beverage preparation. How incredible!
AddLoad and Wash2Dry are two other systems from Miele that make laundry care even smarter and convenient. The AddLoad function lets you know when items of laundry can still be added to an already-running programme. With Wash2Dry, the dryer automatically selects the appropriate drying programme in anticipation of incoming laundry.
Miele dishwashers also come with the MobileControl feature, which allows customers to conveniently start their dishwashers by just a simple click on their phones. Customers can also check the status of their appliance at any time. These intuitive and informative programmes really boost efficiency around the house.
All of these functions can be accessed through the Miele app. The app incorporates all the additional features of Miele’s smart domestic appliances. This makes the operation of these features concise, thus enhancing user experience greatly. Other than the functions mentioned above, the Miele app covers 26 product groups and also increases the number of machinespecific use cases several-fold. The app is designed to be easy to use, intuitive and inspiring. This free-of-charge app is available in 52 countries.
Although Miele has been around for over a century, it is inspiring and assuring to see that such an established brand is still constantly innovating and growing. The smart features are contributing towards a more streamlined and efficient society, and all in all providing a much fresher and fun experience for users.
