New Generation 7000 Marks the Largest Product Introduction in the History of Miele USA

Miele, the world’s largest family-owned premium appliance manufacturer, will unveil its new Generation 7000 built-in cooking appliances to the North American market at the Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS) in February 2022. Generation 7000 is considered the largest product launch in history of Miele USA, renewing the brand’s entire built-in product collection from convection ovens and combi-steam ovens, to coffee machines and vacuum sealing drawers. Aesthetically, Generation 7000 offers four new design lines to complement virtually every interior design and kitchen style. The appliances also provide new smart assists to help users attain culinary excellence, including a camera in the oven and a system to prevent roasts from becoming too dry.

“Generation 7000 is an unprecedented launch for Miele, encompassing over 160 new built-in models that span six product groups and completes a wealth of new kitchen appliances we have launched in the past few years, including our MasterCool and dishwasher categories,” said Jan Heck, President & CEO, Miele USA. “This is our most innovative, expansive and combinable range of built-in appliances yet, making cooking simpler, more convenient and safer. We are confident Generation 7000 will not only further strengthen Miele’s position in the market for premium built-in appliances, but it will also take consumers’ kitchens to the next level.”

Which Kitchen Style Suits Me Best? Simple Yet Elegant Designs
The four design lines in the new Generation 7000 collection include:

  • PureLine: offers a modern, contemporary appeal, with its solid handle, low-key stainless-steel trim and a glass front in Obsidian Black
  • VitroLine: underlines its reserved and integrating style with a handle in the appliance color
  • ArtLine: eliminates the handle for a clean look and minimalistic approach
  • ContourLine: relies heavily on its striking stainless-steel frame and contemporary styling with the focus on showcasing the appliance and its technology

The VitroLine design line, which features reduced all-glass fronts are available in Graphite Grey, Brilliant White and Obsidian Black. ArtLine will be available in Graphite Grey.

In addition to the aesthetic of these design lines, Miele has also increased its 30-inch width offering for appliances, including for the first time the Combi-Steam ovens and Coffee Systems, by thirty percent. This allows for more design layout options whether stacked, cubed, T-formed, or panorama style without the use of trim kits. Twenty-four-inch options are still available, providing a robust product design offering.

Smoother Process Across Appliances Leaves Greater Room for Cooking Creativity
Once a design has been chosen, appliances within one and the same design line can be combined virtually at will. This is because all appliances appear to come from the same mold. This also applies to use and handling. Important controls and displays are located in precisely the same position across the range, making for a common cross-category approach to machine operation. A person familiar with a wall oven will approach, for example, a combination steam oven or a coffee machine with the same familiarity from the outset. All of these products will feature newly designed control panels, which includes an update to the current M Touch display and a new DirectSensor user interface.

“Generation 7000 appliances guide our customers through the cooking process with operating steps that are more intuitive, smoother and more natural,” says Kelly Lam, Vice President of Marketing, Miele USA. “This new ease of handling leaves greater room for creativity in the kitchen than ever before.”

Smart Assists and Unique, Enhanced Technology for Culinary Excellence
The new Miele Generation 7000 cooking appliances feature smart assists to support cooking processes including:

  • TasteControl: when things heat up, TasteControl, a world first, steps in. In ovens, this function prevents food from overcooking by automatically opening the door just a small amount, allowing heat to escape, and bringing the temperature in the oven interior down fast, to a warming level, at the end of a program. Cooking processes end precisely on time, reliably preventing food from continuing to cook in the oven's residual heat, which would cause the food to relinquish its moisture.
  •  FoodView: As the “eye” of the oven, the FoodView in-oven camera sends photographs to any device connected to the Miele@mobile app. For the first time, this feature is even available on pyrolytic self-cleaning models in which the camera is subject to intense heat. The heat-protected, built-in camera transmits images in HD quality to a tablet PC or smartphone. From the convenience of a mobile device, and rather than opening the oven door releasing the heat, one can view the image of the item cooking at that very moment. Additionally, users can easily adjust the temperature and cooking time via the app.
  • MotionReact: Appliances respond when users approach. Miele appliances are able to anticipate the users’ next moves by automatically switching on, activating the oven lighting or deactivating the ringtone at the end of a program when the user approaches. MotionReact also acts as a safety feature, so that an oven cannot operate behind a closed cabinet.
  • Miele Mix & Match: To make steam cooking more accessible and comprehensive, the Combi-Steam ovens will feature Miele Mix & Match for those unsure as to how long or at what temperature to cook or reheat food items. This is a new cooking feature that allows users to cook or reheat simply by using the control panel or select the exact food items from the app and send the cooking instructions directly to the oven. Place the food in the oven, hit start, and a perfectly prepared meal will be ready in minutes.
  • Miele@Home: Most appliances from all Generation 7000 categories have a Wi-Fi module on board, which, when connected to the Miele@mobile app, enables a whole host of new and additional convenience functions. A connected appliance can be started or stopped from a tablet PC or smartphone.

Live demonstrations of the Generation 7000 appliances will conducted at Miele’s booth (W1328) at the Kitchen & Bath Industry Show. The new collection of appliances will be available for purchase starting in May 2022. For more information, please visit US.MieleUSA.com/AandD.
