Miele Unveils Design for Life with New Generation 6000 Series
Elegance, versatility and convenience in the kitchen

Princeton, NJ - April 11, 2014 - Following five years of extensive product development, Miele introduces its Generation 6000 series of appliances. As the most significant Miele product launch in the United States, Generation 6000 sets new benchmarks in design, technology and innovation.  Comprising new convection ovens, speed ovens, steam ovens, combi-steam ovens, coffee systems, microwave ovens and gourmet warming drawers -  Miele Generation 6000 ensures unprecedented convenience, performance and elegance for today’s kitchen.

“Miele Generation 6000 is the result of countless hours of research and development, culminating in the most well-resolved appliance series Miele has ever developed – bringing design and innovation that exceed expectations,” said Dr. Christian Schwarz, VP of Marketing for Miele. “This entire series was designed on the principle of ‘Design for Life’, which ensures all Miele appliances are tested to last 20 years and that each appliance flawlessly complements another in form, function and materials to elevate the culinary experience.

Generation 6000 includes two distinct design styles - PureLine and ContourLine - as well as several color options including Brilliant White and Truffle Brown.  Design for Miele is not simply the exterior. Like the design principle, form follows function; the true beauty of the Generation 6000 series is highlighted by its intuitive user interface, which ensures unsurpassed performance and convenience in the kitchen.  With these new color options and the uniform design of the Generation 6000 series, Miele has created a series of appliances that will seamlessly integrate into any kitchen or lifestyle. Whether appliances are installed vertically, horizontally, as a square or in a T-shape configuration, the design is fully resolved.

M Touch – Top-class technology with a special touch
Whether it’s creating a double cappuccino at the touch of a single button, finding the desired MasterChef automatic program on the Combi-Steam Oven in an instant or selecting the operating mode and temperature in just a few simple steps – Miele eliminates the guesswork.  All of these operations are easier than ever because of M Touch. Reminiscent of smart phones and tablets, M Touch is an intuitive user interface that allows the user to swipe or scroll through the menu with the tip of a finger. A new high resolution control panel with white TFT (Thin Film Transistor) text brings a brilliant display.  And because the interface is universal across all Gen 6000 appliances, the transition from appliance to appliance is easier than ever.

Oven Innovations: Moisture Plus, Gourmet Center and MultiSteam
Developed exclusively for Miele USA, Moisture Plus is a truly unique steam injection system featured in Miele M Touch 30” Convection Ovens. Moisture Plus automatically injects a burst of steam into the oven cavity at pre-determined points during the cooking process. The addition of moisture improves results when proofing dough, gives loaves of bread a crisp crust and glossy finish and makes cuts of meat particularly crisp on the outside and succulent inside.

Also new to the 30” Convection Oven is the addition of MasterChef Plus programs. Ideal for the consummate baker at home, this exclusive new menu system houses 14 automatic bread programs and replicates results seen in artisan bakeries. Included are programs for sourdough, whole grain, rolls and baguettes.

A pioneer in steam oven technology, Generation 6000 Steam and Combi-Steam Ovens are equipped with MultiSteam technology, a revolutionary new steam cooking generation. The addition of six steam inlets in the Steam Oven and eight steam inlets in the Combi-Steam Oven, delivers fast, even steam distribution and incredibly quick heat-up times for even cooking results through a more powerful steam generator.

Long regarded for its ingredient-driven menu, Miele MasterChef programs are now located within the Gourmet Center. Choose from more than 100 easy to use programs for grains, vegetables, meats, fish and poultry. At just the touch of a button, the program will deliver menu options that guide the user step by step - from the desired oven mode to temperature - all resulting in the perfect dish.

Generation 6000 Coffee Systems impress with comfort and innovation
There are several new highlights to the Generation 6000 Whole Bean Coffee System including a new CupSensor, EasyClick Milk System and One Touch for Two features. Exclusive to Miele, the CupSensor automatically adjusts the height of the spout to the optimum position for different cup and glass sizes. Whether a tall latté macchiato or a dainty espresso is being prepared, the central spout automatically adjusts to the cup’s rim and eliminates splashing.  The CupSensor even reacts precisely to beverages made with milk by raising the spout slightly to make room for the incoming espresso.

Also new is the EasyClick milk system which is a dishwasher safe glass, milk flask that effortlessly clicks into place at the front of the machine. And for easy maintenance, the new Miele Coffee Systems now automatically rinse all milk spouts and hoses with water after each use.

The One Touch for Two feature allows the user to prepare two coffee specialties such as cappuccino and latté macchiato at the same time, thus reducing prep time when two or more drinks are being served.

Miele Generation 6000 series is distinguished by its elegant design and remarkable innovations to deliver unmatched results that can be seen, touched and tasted. German engineered and tested to last 20 years, Generation 6000 reinforces the Miele Design for Life philosophy and solidifies Miele at the forefront of residential culinary appliances.

Miele Generation 6000 will be available in the United States in July 2014.
