Miele The Cookbook (Baking, Roasting, Cooking)

Dear connoisseurs,

Memorable moments and lively conversations happen when we meet over a meal. Food is the thing that connects us, whether it’s a special occasion or simply the evening meal. Your new Miele speed oven offers you precisely this potential: as a true allrounder, you can use it to prepare quick and healthy everyday meals and also culinary menus of the highest quality
This book is designed to be a genuine aid in the kitchen. Every day, knowledge, curiosity, routine and the unexpected all converge in our Miele test kitchen. We have condensed our experience, passion and pleasure of experimenting with food into this cookbook by creating recipes that are as imaginative as they are successful. You can also get more recipes and inspiration in our [email protected] App. If you have any questions or comments, please give us a call on the number shown at the back of this book.
Happy cooking from
Your Miele Test Kitchen Team

Before you start, we have prepared some tips on how to use this cookbook.
For every Automatic program, there is a matching recipe, which facilitates your introduction to using your Miele speed oven.
In many Automatic programs you can fine-tune the cooking result to your tastes – the degree of browning for bread and baked goods and the degree of doneness for meat.
To simplify terminology, your speed oven will hereafter be referred to as an oven.

About Automatic programmes

  • Automatic programmes are not available on all models. Even if the appropriate Automatic programme is not available, you can still make all the recipes. To do this, you can use manual settings. Any differences will be outlined in the preparation text.
  • At the end of every recipe with an Automatic programme, the path for selecting the Automatic programme is shown under setting details.
  • The median programme duration is always shown for Automatic programmes and is set at the factory. With many programmes, the actual duration depends, however, on the selected degree of doneness. Select this prior to the start of the Automatic programme.

About ingredients

  • If a comma (,) comes after an ingredient, the subsequent text will describe the food. In most cases the food comes with such a description when purchased: e.g. Eggs, Size M; Milk, 3.5% fat.
  • If a vertical line (|) is shown after a single ingredient, the description refers to how the food is handled or processed, which is generally carried out by the person doing the cooking. This processing step will then not be mentioned in the preparation text:
    E.g. Cheese, aromatic | grated; Onions | finely diced; Milk, 3.5% fat | lukewarm.
  • In the case of meat, if no other description is available, the weight of the meat is given.
  • For fruit and vegetables, the weight refers to a peeled, non-pitted condition.
  • Fruit and vegetables should always be cleaned/washed or, if necessary, peeled. This processing step is not repeated in the preparation text.

Features of individual oven models

  • If your oven does not have the Conventional Heat function, select the Fan Plus function.
  • If your oven does not have the “Prove yeast dough” special application, instead select the Fan
  • Plus function and a temperature of 35 °C. Cover the dough, as described in the recipe, with a damp cloth.

About the settings

  • Temperatures and durations: temperature and duration ranges are given. Generally, select the lower setting and then visually check the food or use a food probe to determine if the duration needs to be extended.
  • Shelf levels: the shelf levels which trays and racks are placed on are numbered from bottom to top.
  • Cooking containers: depending on function, the cooking containers used must be microwave safe and heat resistant. Please follow the instructions given in the operating and installation instructions about suitable cooking containers

Overview of functions

Functions which do not use microwave energy
Fan Plus
For baking and roasting. You can cook on several shelf levels at the same time. Because the fan distributes the heat to food straight away, it allows you to use a lower temperature than you would with “Conventional Heat”.
Conventional Heat
For baking and roasting traditional recipes, cooking soufflés and cooking at low temperatures. If using an older recipe or cookbook, set the oven temperature 10 °C lower than that recommended. This will not change the cooking duration.
Intensive Bake
For baking cakes with a moist topping which require a crisp base. This function is not suitable for baking thin items or for roasting as the baked items and roasting juices will become too dark.
Auto Roast
For roasting. During the searing phase the oven automatically heats up to a high temperature to seal the meat. As soon as this temperature has been reached, the oven temperature automatically drops back down to the pre-selected cooking temperature. The meat will be browned perfectly on the outside and the cooking process can continue to the end without needing to change functions.

Bottom Heat
Use this function towards the end of cooking to brown the base of the food.
Grill
For grilling and toasting bread, open sandwiches etc. and browning baked dishes. The whole of the top heat/grill element will get hot and glow red.
Fan Grill
For grilling thicker items, e.g. rolled meat, poultry pieces. Because the fan distributes the heat to food straight away, it allows you to use a lower temperature than you would with the Grill function.
Eco Fan Heat
Suitable for small amounts, e.g. frozen pizzas, bake-off rolls, biscuits and for meat dishes and roasts. You can save up to 30% energy compared to cooking with a standard oven function as long as the door is kept shut during cooking.

Microwave function
For defrosting, reheating or cooking. Cooking durations are shorter than when using a cooktop or oven. Food can generally be cooked with little or no liquid or cooking oil. The more moisture in the food, the faster the cooking or reheating process as the microwaves act on the water molecules in the food from all sides.
Combination functions
By combining conventional oven functions with the microwave function you can make time savings of up to 30%.
MW + Fan Plus
For rapid reheating and cooking of food, browning it at the same time. This combination function saves the most time and energy.
MW + Auto Roast
This is used for searing at a high temperature and continued cooking at a lower temperature. By automatically heating up to a high initial temperature, the food achieves an excellent level of browning. As soon as this temperature has been reached, the oven temperature automatically drops back down to the pre-selected temperature for continued roasting. The microwave function switches on at the same time to reduce the cooking duration.
MW + Grill
For grilling and toasting bread, open sandwiches etc. and browning baked dishes. The use of the grill creates an appetising crispy top. The food is heated from all sides thanks to the microwave.
MW + Fan Grill
For grilling thicker items, e.g. rolled meat, poultry pieces. Because the fan distributes the heat to food straight away, it allows you to use a lower temperature than you would with the Microwave + Grill function.

General notes

Auto switch-off
Your oven contains intelligent electronics which provide the greatest of user convenience. The oven switches off automatically when the cooking duration has elapsed.
Timer
By entering a specific cooking duration, a “Finish at” or a “Start at” time, you can control cooking processes in advance and have the oven switch off or switch on and off automatically.
Cooking durations
The duration required for cooking can be set in advance. The heating will switch off automatically once this duration has elapsed. If you have selected the “Pre-heat” function, the cooking duration only begins once the selected temperature has been reached and the food has been placed in the oven.
Pre-heating
It is only necessary to pre-heat the oven in a few instances. Most dishes can be placed in a cold oven. They will then make use of the heat produced during the heating-up phase. If pre-heating is necessary, instructions to do so will usually be given in the settings charts for the recipe. Pre-heat the oven when cooking:

  • cakes and biscuits with a short baking time (up to 30 minutes)
  • dark bread dough
  • beef sirloin joints and fillet

Booster
You can use the Booster function to get your oven interior up to the required temperature as quickly as possible. If  you selected a temperature above100 °C and the Booster function is switched on, the top heat/grill element, ring heating element and fan will all switch on at the same time. This will rapidly accelerate the heating-up time.

Crisp function
Select the Crisp function for items which are supposed to be crispy. Moisture reduction in the oven leaves chips, pizza, quiche etc. crispy. Even the skin of poultry becomes crispy, while the meat remains juicy. The Crisp function can be used with every oven functions and can be switched on when needed.
User programmes
You can create and save up to 20 of your own programmes and give them individual names. You can combine up to 10 cooking stages to achieve the perfect result for your favourite recipe, or make everyday cooking easier by saving frequently used settings. In each cooking stage you can select settings such as function, temperature and duration or core temperature

Food probe
The food probe enables precise temperature-controlled roasting. Tips for correctly using the food probe:

  • Make sure that the metal tip is inserted as deeply as possible into the centre of the thickest part of the meat.
  • If the piece of meat is too small or too thin, a raw potato can be put over the exposed part of the food probe.
  • The tip of the food probe must not touch any bone, tendons or layers of fat.
  • For poultry, the food probe should be inserted into the thickest part of the breast.
  • During the cooking process an estimated duration appears in the display, which is adjusted until the end of the process.
  • If you are cooking several pieces of meat together, the food probe should be inserted into the largest piece of meat.

Special applications
Depending on model, your oven has a number of Special applications The following is a list of these.
Defrost
For the gentle defrosting of frozen food. The temperature can be set between 25 °C and 50 °C. The frozen food is defrosted evenly and completely.
Reheat
For heating up food. You can select from different categories of food. The oven uses this selection, as well as the weight entered, to determine the ideal setting. Any other handling such as turning or stirring the food is also determined and shown in the display
Prove yeast dough
For the reliable and easy proving of yeast dough. The temperature can be set between 30 °C and 50 °C. Allow the dough to prove until it has doubled in size.
Low temp. cooking
For gentle cooking of especially tender meat. The low temperature and particularly long cooking duration leave the meat perfectly cooked and incomparably tender.
Sabbath programme
The Sabbath programme is for religious observance. Select the Sabbath programme and then select the oven function and temperature. The programme will only start after the door is opened and closed:
