The se­lec­tion of stylish and state-of-the-art in­duc­tion hobs and cooker hoods from Miele make the per­fect ad­di­tions to the con­tem­po­rary gourmet kitchen

POW­ER­FUL VER­SA­TIL­ITY

Cooking on in­duc­tion hobs em­pow­ers you with a sense of pre­ci­sion and safety sec­ond to none. Be­sides af­ford­ing you a great de­gree of con­trol over the heat ap­plied to your pots and pans, Miele’s KM 6381 in­duc­tion hob ex­hibits a ver­sa­til­ity that home cooks will find es­pe­cially use­ful. En­ter­tain­ing tonight? The hob is de­signed with in­no­va­tive Pow­er­flex zones, al­low­ing you to merge two cooking ar­eas to form a larger one, ac­com­mo­dat­ing the largest pots and casseroles you’ve been sav­ing for that din­ner party. Be­sides en­larg­ing the sur­face area of your cooking zones, this model al­lows you to chan­nel the power from two cooking zones into one by way of the Twin­booster func­tion. So if you need to swiftly bring a large pot of wa­ter to the boil, you’ll find this func­tion par­tic­u­larly use­ful. Cooks who en­joy whip­ping up a tasty Chi­nese-style stir-fry will know that it is im­pos­si­ble to do so with­out a proper wok heated to high and pre­cise tem­per­a­tures. Un­like other in­duc­tion cook­tops on the mar­ket, Miele’s KM 6356 fea­tures an in­te­grated in­duc­tion wok which lets you do just that, as the main ad­van­tage of an in­duc­tion wok is that it achieves a uni­form and pre­cise tem­per­a­ture as well as speed. Be­sides the in­te­grated

wok, this ver­sa­tile hob fea­tures three other cooking zones, giv­ing you the op­tion to pre­pare mul­ti­ple dishes at the same time. The Pow­er­flex zone op­tion, which al­lows you to merge two tem­per­a­ture zones to heat large cook­ware, is present here too. Those with a keen eye for de­sign will ap­pre­ci­ate the hob’s el­e­gant black glass fin­ish.

DIS­CREET CHARM

No hob is com­plete with­out a pow­er­ful hood to en­sure op­ti­mum ex­trac­tion and a sleek kitchen is de­serv­ing of an equally well de­signed cooker hood to com­ple­ment the over­all de­sign aes­thetic. Few brands un­der­stand this bet­ter than Miele, as ev­i­denced by its stunning DA 3690 cooker hood. Be­hind its min­i­mal­ist de­sign lies a pow­er­fully en­gi­neered sys­tem that can achieve an ex­trac­tion rat­ing of up to 640m3/hr – one that deftly ex­tracts away grease, smells, and vapour be­fore it can set­tle in your kitchen. Span­ning 90cm, the hood boasts a gen­er­ous canopy that over­looks a hob-space wide enough to cater to the needs of se­ri­ous home cooks. The hood is also in­te­grated with Miele’s. Con@ctiv­ity 2.0 tech­nol­ogy, a fea­ture that syncs your hood to your hob. This way, when you turn your hob on, you’ll find your cooking hood re­spond­ing au­to­mat­i­cally as well.

IN­TU­ITIVE TECH­NOL­OGY

Miele’s Con@ctiv­ity 2.0 smart tech­nol­ogy also en­ables the cooker hood to cal­i­brate the fan set­tings ac­cord­ing to the in­ten­sity of cooking ac­tiv­ity, en­sur­ing the op­ti­mum room cli­mate at all times. This en­sures, you’re free to fo­cus on what mat­ters the most – cooking each dish to per­fec­tion. Done cooking? Sim­ply turn off the hob and the hood will fol­low suit. With less time spent fid­dling with kitchen ap­pli­ances, you’ll find your­self with more time to per­fect your dishes.
