New Combiset™ Cooking Range

Miele, the world’s largest family-owned appliance company announces the launch of a new CombiSet™ series. Miele’s updated CombiSets™ feature a stunning new stainless design, with sleek steel knobs and an ergonomically inclined control panel. The line boasts innovative new products including an induction unit and a Japanese Tepan Yaki. A slightly larger width of 15” on various models now offers small space chefs room for large pots. Miele CombiSets™ are single or double-burner units that stand alone or combine to fully customize any cooking surface – or even to create multiple cooking stations.

All CombiSet™ modules are perfectly matched to one another in terms of their design and functional characteristics so consumers can mix and match to form their own personal cooking space. Every imaginable combination of individual elements is available from induction, gas and electric to deep fryer and Tepan Yaki. Integrating gas with electric or even induction offers flexible opportunities that just aren’t available with standard cooktops.

“Many companies would be satisfied with the introduction of a single cooktop unit as innovative as our new induction unit or the sizzling TepanYaki,” states Oliver Schmidt, Product Specialist for Miele. “But Miele is not that kind of company. Before we introduced our latest CombiSet™ advancements, we rethought the entire line – providing a width re-adjustment that makes the units more compatible for the way Americans cook. We also re-designed the look so that the new line matches perfectly in today’s more modern kitchens with a sleek stainless frame design and elegant new grates. The CombiSet™ is a tremendous solution for designers and homeowners who are seeking something completely unique and customized to their cooking style, space and needs,” concludes Schmidt.

Tepan Yaki

Invented by the Japanese, teppanyaki is a heated stainless steel surface that provides unmatched sautéing results. The secret is the intensive contact heat surface that seals in juices. The Tepan Yaki is equipped with two separate heating circuits that can warm vegetables on the rear while simultaneously searing fine fillets on the front. Miele’s Tepan Yaki (model CS 1326 Y) is offered in a 15” width.

As a complement to Miele’s induction cooktops introduced last year, the new CombiSet™ range offers a sleek, single 15” induction unit, perfectly suited for efficient and powerful custom applications.

Induction CombiSet™

As a complement to Miele’s induction cooktops introduced last year, the new CombiSet™ range offers a sleek, single 15” induction unit, perfectly suited for efficient and powerful custom applications. Using the safe transfer of energy through magnetic fields to the cookware, induction offers unmatched energy efficiency, lightning fast heat-up times, precise control and easy cleanup. Through superb design, Miele induction units utilize 90% of energy produced, compared to 55% for gas, keeping kitchens cool and comfortable. Thanks to an advanced layout configuration, induction units offer a shallow mounting depth, allowing integration of a drawer directly below.

Gas CombiSets™

Gas is the most popular of the CombiSet™ modules and the new generation provides an expanded offering: Two single classic wok burners in 11 3/8” or 15” widths and two double burners in 11 3/8” widths. Miele’s innovative spiral burners are distinguished by a unique flame pattern, ensuring optimum distribution of the heat below the pan. The grate design is elegantly narrow and matches the sophistication of the entire CombiSet™ range. All gas units are state-of-the-art in terms of safety and have an electronically controlled quick-acting ignition and re-ignition system. This ensures that the gas feed is interrupted if the flame is ever extinguished, e.g. by a gust of wind, rendering automatic re-ignition unsuccessful. The electronic control also ensures that the appliances deactivate themselves automatically after four hours of continuous operation.

Electric CombiSets™

Miele’s electric CombiSets™ feature an easy-to-clean and beautifully durable black ceramic surface. Circular heating elements provide precise and intense radiant heat with residual heat indicators for added safety. Two electric CombiSets™ are included in the new range: The 11 3/8” wide module features two burners; plus a 15” wide module that is equipped with a single cooking zone as well as a cooking/casserole zone for larger applications.
