The Certified Hygiene Seal confirms that all dishwashers remove more than 99.9% of specific viruses and bacteria.

For peace of mind, our dishwashers are equipped with special programs that eliminate germs and viruses – providing the cleanest and most sanitary results possible.

AutoOpen Drying

Our dishwashers provide worry-free solutions.  The dishwasher door automatically opens at the end of each program cycle, reducing humidity and preventing bacteria growth inside the unit.  

Steam Ovens

The Miele Steam Oven allows you to prepare fresh food gently, retaining nutrients and intense natural flavors for a healthier meal. Scientific research endorses the benefits of steam cooking over traditional cooking methods as steam-cooked vegetables contain 50%* more vitamins than those that are boiled. In general, steam cooking adds to a vitamin-rich and healthy diet by ensuring the best possible food quality. In addition, you can steam clean items like baby bottles or jars in a Miele Steam oven.

Eliminate Bacteria with Steam

Quick and easy steam clean items like dishes, cutlery, bottles and pacifiers at 212 °F.

Vacuum Cleaners

Miele Vacuum Cleaners combine top cleaning performance with user convenience and first-class quality. Outstanding hygiene comes standard with our bagged and bagless vacuum cleaners, the latter using a dust separation system, while our dust bags can be changed without releasing any dust back into the air.

Excellent filtration

With the HEPA2 Lifetime filter you can create a hypoallergenic zone within your own four walls. It captures and filters 99.999%3 of all microscopic particles and allergens – removing them from the air. As a result, allergy sufferers will be less affected by pollen or household dust.

Certified hygiene

TÜV Nord (environmental testing board in Germany) has also recommended several Miele Canister Vacuum Cleaners with HEPA AirClean filters for people with allergies. With the special casing seal, the whole appliance, not just the exhaust filter, meets the requirements of the TÜV Nord, which are reviewed annually. The filtered and discharged air is cleaner than normal room air. Bacteria, allergens and fungal spores remain safely inside the FilterBag.

Hygienic FilterBag replacement

When the vacuum cleaner is opened, the Original Miele AirClean FilterBag's collar closes automatically and locks in the vacuumed dust for good. Additionally, the protective netting prevents the bag from ripping and tearing, even if you have vacuumed up sharp items. Once fine dust has been vacuumed, it cannot escape again.
