Excellent Oven - recommended by Which? Magazine too.

Very pleased with my new oven so far, having previously always had gas cookers. The setting for getting the oven up to temperature very quickly is amazingly quick. Downsides? The main one is that Miele only provide one wire shelf (the other is a tray) - additional shelves are available from Miele, but the price will make your eyes bleed.....c'mon Miele, you can do better.... Alternatively, get a non-genuine spare off ebay for a fraction of the price. The only other thing to be aware of is you'll need a suitable Torx bit to fit the oven securing screws when installing it.

Good oven

Happy overall with the build quality and functionality. Simple options and does the job.


A couple of weeks in and this is a first-rate cooker so far. We were replacing an old cooker that was on its last legs so there are obvious improvements. Have used most of the settings so far and all good. The reason for 4 stars as opposed to 5 is that the cooker arrives with just one wire shelf, plus one roasting tray, so two cooking levels in all. But this is a cooker that will easily hold three, and you are probably going to need wire shelves far more often than the tray. I think for this price Miele should provide two shelves plus a tray. This might seem a minor niggle but a spare shelf from the Miele website costs £90! I managed to find the same shelf a lot cheaper on eBay but would have been more than a little miffed if I had had to pay one-fifth of the price of the cooker for an extra shelf. However, apart from that this is a neat item and performs well.

Good oven but small design flaw.

Only had the oven for a short time but it seems fine, however, for an expensive oven, it has a bit of a design flaw. The display panel is black, and so is the left-hand selector knob. It has a line in it (black also) to indicate which programme selection is being made. this makes it difficult to know which programme has been selected, particularly lower on the dial. I'm surprised that Miele did not pick this up. I guess we'll get used to it.

One happy Miele customer

Simplicity of use and a wide range of cooking functions for us oldies who have been cooking for over fifty years. Some good things are like the timer which after the time finishes the clock starts clocking up, so if you are away from the kitchen and the timer goes off you have some idea of when the actual time when the alarm went off. The timer is nice and easy to set with a wide range of options. The oven temperature can be seen increasing until the set temp is reached, that's good. I cook sometimes twice a day and these small things do help. The cooling fan is not too noisy and does not run any longer than any other cooker. So some things I don't like having seconds on the timer would have been better to have a longer cook time while you could set the oven to cook for duration on the timer for start to finish,sometimes something that is going too cook longer it would be nice to set hours and minutes. The buzzer for oven temp gives one bleep when it gets to the set temp when you are working in kitchen, something with a longer bleep and maybe louder is best to notify you. Why have shelves marked out for 5 positions when the operating cooking positions for the recommended shelf position only goes to three. The function knob only protracts in oin the off position not like the temp knob. So having had the cooker for one week it has been used every day the roast turned out nice on the oven temp I used and normally I do not check my meat temp after fifty years you know when something is cooked but yes I did check the meat temp and was perfect. My home pizza turned out good, the toast which I always do under the grill was perfect, finally my cakes turned out good. I would recommend any serious cook to consider this cooker I am glad I did. Sorry my review is long but that's how a review should be done thank you for reading my comments

Fantastic oven

Fantastic it warms up really quickly compared to my last oven it was a Smeg which I wouldn’t buy again. Our new ovens cooks much more even and quicker. We know it was more money but worth every penny .

Almost Perfect

We can feel the quality of Miele. So far so good, except the fact that the light does not work anymore after just a few days...will contact customer service. Heat Fast

Not as good as expected

I was really excited about the oven but it's let down by a number of really annoying details. The actual heating / baking performance is fine but I expected a more user-friendly experience. The rails inside the oven that hold the racks are just terrible. Firstly, the rails feel flimsy and rattle. Secondly, moving trays in or out of the oven produces an insanely loud long screech every time that hurts my ears. I have never experienced this with any other oven. Further, standard sized trays don't fit, so you need to buy proprietary ones. Weirdly, my half sheet pan will fit onto the bottom rack but not the middle or top ones, so I don't think the guide rails are all the same size either. So, for the price, look for a different oven.
