Dialog Oven by Miele

Developed exclusively by Miele over the last seven years, the new Dialog Oven with innovative and intelligent M Chef Technology offers passionate cooks and early adopters a revolutionary new way to cook at home. High-tech sensors closely monitor the cooking process, maintaining a constant dialog with ingredients as they cook enabling the Dialog Oven to keep tabs simultaneously on a wide range of dishes – so meat, fish, breads and other ingredients can be cooked to perfection in parallel, according to their individual needs. The energy distributed penetrates the entire body of the food, and therefore rather than cooking food from the outside in like conventional ovens, it instead cooks the food in its entirety – Miele calls this ‘volumetric cooking’. It’s this revolutionary technology that enables the creation of completely new and innovative dishes that are always prepared to the highest standards.

Some examples include:

  • Preparing experimental dishes such as a fish in ice or veal tenderloin in beeswax without melting the ice or wax
  • Separating browning from baking for example a crustless loaf of bread
  • Considerably reducing cooking times – pulled pork can be enjoyed in as little as 2.5 hours rather than 8-16 hours
  • Preparing a dish with a number of ingredients simultaneously – for example meat and a range of vegetables can all be added to the oven at the same time with no element overcooked
  • Perfectly serving sophisticated dishes – a tray of souffles will come out of the Dialog Oven at the same exact height and without the need for a bain-marie.

Wright Kitchens, Harlow

The Mystery Shopper says: “Located on an inauspicious industrial estate, the shop was delightful. They’d had a recent flood and must have apologised around four times for the state of the floor. But it didn’t mar their products, service or experience. They are a family-run business and I’d trust them to create a lovely and durable locally-produced kitchen, installed with care and sensitivity. What more could you ask for?”
