DGM 6800 by Miele
More than nine out of ten Miele customers wish they had a second built-in cooking product in their kitchen – and are often forced to dither between steam oven and microwave. The DGM is the perfect solution as it combines the convenience of a microwave with the quality of cooking results produced by Miele steam ovens. There is considerable potential for this new appliance which masters both disciplines without entertaining compromises and does not take any short cuts when it comes to Miele's proverbial quality, either.
The new Miele steam oven with microwave is a built-in unit for a cabinet recess with a height of 45 cm. It is available in the PureLine range in CleanSteel stainless steel, obsidian black and brilliant white and features the innovative M-Touch display.
With its broad gamut of applications, the DGM 6800 offers the same full range of functions as the flagship model amongst steam cookers. These include more than 150 automatic programmes conveniently accessed via the M Touch display and its search function. Users are able to compile and save up to 20 own programmes.
Creating one's own programmes has a practical side-benefit on the DGM 6800 as the combination of the two modes combines the speed of microwave cooking with the exceptional quality-enhancing properties of steam. This facilitates for instance gentle defrosting and uniform cooking in one single composite programme.Defrosting and reheating, say, a frozen stew or soup involves saving four steps in one programme in which microwave energy alternates with steam. And even when simply reheating food, a combination of microwaves and steam also makes sense as the steam prevents the food from drying out. The operating instructions which come with the DGM 6800 contain several examples of useful combinations of steam and microwave cooking.
