CA Residents: Prop 65 WARNING
Residual heat indicator
Absolutely safe Miele cooktops have a residual heat indicator for every cooking zone. It reminds you not to touch a hot cooking zone or to place any heat-sensitive items on it. Also, it enables you to use the residual heat in order to save energy.
Safety turn off
Safe is safe A maximum operating duration is defined for each power level. If a cooking zone is operated for an unusually long time at the same power level, it switches off automatically.
Safety and system lock
Safety for all The safety lock function prevents inadvertent changes to the chosen power levels during cooking. The system lock protects from accidental or unauthorized switching on, by children, for example. This function can be activated on a cooktop that is switched off.
Overheating protection and fault monitoring
To ensure the appliance has a long service life Every cooking zone is equipped with overheating protection. This automatically switches off the heating element of the cooking zone in the case of extreme use before the ceramic glass or other components can overheat. If liquid or another item gets onto the surface by mistake, the cooktop automatically switches off as well. So you are always protected from unintentional power adjustment.
DirectSelection plus - exclusive to Miele This feature allows you to select power settings and times quickly and intuitively. For each individual cooking zone there is a backlit numerical display. The numerical display is not visible when the cooktop is switched off - for a minimalist, elegant appearance.
Stop & Go
A safety plus Is there somebody at the door? With the Stop&Go function all cooking zones can be reduced to power level one with the single touch of a button. In this way the cooktop can be left unattended for a short period without food overcooking or burning. When you return to the Cooktop, the previously set power levels can be reactivated with another touch of a button.
Saves not just energy This Miele automatic setting turns down the heat from its initial power (for fast heating up) to a lower temperature (for further cooking). This way you won't forget to turn down the heat in time, and food will not burn. It also saves energy.
Makes cooking easier The cooktop timer helps to make everyday life in the kitchen more relaxed. For example, depending on model, you can set the duration for your cooking zones separately so that they switch off automatically or you can use the minute minder independently of the cooktop functions.
Versatile cooking zone configuration
Practical for everyday use Miele cooktops offer cooking zones and burners in different shapes and sizes. This allows you to use pans of every shape and size on the Cooktop. Many cooktops offer additional large extended zones.
