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. A light and fluffy choco­late souf­fle that rises so del­i­cately and per­fectly to the oc­ca­sion. Which­ever your fancy, when gourmet de­sires and culi­nary as­pi­ra­tions in­spire your daily menu, you know it is time to up the game and go from home cook to home chef.

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.

“Miele has be­lieved in this con­nec­tion for over 15 years now, hav­ing been the first do­mes­tic ap­pli­ance com­pany in the in­dus­try to offer con­nected ap­pli­ances via in­no­va­tive tech­nolo­gies, which have al­ways been at the cen­tre of our com­pe­ten­cies - en­abling our cus­tomers to stay flex­i­ble and guar­an­tee­ing con­ve­nience, qual­ity, and safety for spe­cific life­style needs,” says Syndy Neo-khoo, Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor of Miele Sin­ga­pore, Malaysia and Thai­land.
