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.


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.

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

Like it

Overall happy with the oven. Not the cheapest but heats up nice and quickly and like the digital temperature gauge for accuracy.

Great product so far

Product arrived promptly, love the retractable controls and overall look. Yet to fit so can’t comment on effectiveness. Only reason not getting a 5* from me is the plastic and polystyrene packaging.

Thoroughly recommend

You know you’re getting old when you get excited about an oven. Love the speed at which it heats up and my cakes now rise perfectly due to the even heat distribution. Thoroughly recommend this product.

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.
