Miele‘s Dialog oven is equipped with the M Chef technology that applies electromagnetic waves to the food which creates heat for cooking. The Dialog oven features a modular unit which generates electromagnetic waves in a specific frequency range and distributes these in the oven via two high-performance sensors. As the molecules in food are arranged in different ways and even rearrange during the course of cooking, continuous adjustment of the frequency supports the cooking process. The same sensors also provide the Dialog oven with feedback on the amount of energy which has been absorbed by food. “A further significant advantage of M Chef – the company explains – accrues from the fact that food is cooked ‘volumetrically’: a fillet of meat is for instance cooked uniformly pink from the edges right through to the core. In a conventional oven, this is much more difficult as heat always travels from the outside to the inside. When the core is done to a T, the outer layers are often already overdone. As cooking with electromagnetic waves does not brown the surfaces of food, bread can be baked entirely without a crust. For a classic loaf of bread and the roasted aromas in meat, M Chef technology always combines with radiant heat. In this respect, the Dialog oven is ideally equipped as it offers many features of Miele’s flagship cooking products, including a user-friendly M Touch display and pyrolytic self-cleaning. Elegant and uniform illumination on all levels is guaranteed for the first time by high-quality LED lighting called BrilliantLight”. Besides, the oven is a connected appliance: the recipe feature included in the Miele@mobile app represents an ideal starting point for experimenting and trying out new ideas as it offers users numerous automatic programmes developed specifically for this new product. Alongside food preparation videos and shopping lists, the app also allows the parameters of a recipe to be transferred directly to the machine. Miele launches its Dialog oven in Germany and Austria in the second quarter of 2018.
