TECHNOLOGY vs TRADITION
Aclassic filet mignon, well seared on the outside, evenly cooked medium-rare from edge to edge with a texture that yields and melts in your mouth like butter. A chicken cordon bleu, crispy golden on the outside, rich and juicy on the inside and oozing with creamy Gruyère.

Investing in the right kitchenware and appliances will close the gap between amateur- and professional-level cooking. Mastery of skills and instincts go a long way in the kitchen, but with technology backing you up, home chefs are able to concentrate on perfecting their dishes. The precision and ease of complex functions achieved by your culinary partner saves you time and keeps things composed with just the touch of a button, leaving you to entertain with poise.
The question for home chefs lies in the balance between technology and functionality, and finding the right fit for your needs rather than just following the latest trends.
Kitchen and appliance companies have recognised the need for sophistication in the kitchen, going beyond the hardware to include the software that takes functionality to a whole new level. In the conversation regarding smart technology, Miele is one of the pioneering companies that have focused on customers’ need for connectivity with its Miele@home feature. Miele recognises the need for customers to multitask efficiently. The Miele@mobile smartphone app for example, allows stay-home parents to keep an eye on the roast in the oven via camera, while engaging with the children in the living room, and simultaneously receiving notifications when your dishwasher is ready.
