Fashionable – speed and health, modernity and naturalness, taste and usefulness. It’s not easy to combine these different aspirations and get close to the ideal, but Miele engineers pulled it off. The company offers a new premium combination built-in appliance which uses the power of steam and microwaves to let you enjoy great food cooked in minutes.
MIELE DGM 6800 steamer
MIELE DGM 6800 – NOW YOU DON’T HAVE TO CHOOSE
The undoubted favorites among the premium built-in appliances are ovens and coffee makers, but then comes the controversy. Children beg for popcorn and suffer without fast food warming up right on their plates, parents dream of tasty food which is good for picky eaters but good for their health. Before you had to choose: microwave or steam cooker. No need to compromise: the MIELE DGM 6800 is a steamer with microwave function.
HOW IT WORKS
The MIELE DGM 6800 combines two appliances in one.
Expecting to steam cook? You simply pour the tap water into the large cooking tray and place it in the dishwasher. You put the prepared food into the container, set the program, time – and that’s it. The powerful MultiSteam steam generator 3.3 kW dispenses steam into the cooking cabinet through eight holes, quickly and evenly distributing it throughout the interior.
The beep sounds after a set time – your food is ready.
Need microwave oven? You put food in the oven, switch on the Quick Start or select one of the 7 microwave power levels, set the cooking time. Then the buzzer sounds to let you know it’s done.
But the interesting thing about the MIELE DGM 6800 is that you can combine the steam and microwave modes. The result: unlimited possibilities for preparing a wide variety of dishes, with all the effects on the food.

Operation of such a complex device is as simple and convenient as the iPhones. M Touch technology. All the information is displayed on a TFT touch screen which is divided into three active zones. The upper and lower ones are narrow and auxiliary and show the current time, the alarm and timer indicators, the right/left arrows, etc.d.
All actual information is concentrated in the central area of the display – you can scroll through the current menu items by swiping your finger across the display. Actually, explaining how it works is much more complicated than operating the appliance. Everything is intuitive and easy to use for people who successfully use smartphones and tablets. And if you’re not quite up to it, you can activate the “help” function with explanatory texts and drawings to help you.
Touch sensitive buttons at the touch of a finger. Each touch is acknowledged by an acoustic signal, which can be muted or reduced if required.
Naturally, there is a start-up lock and a button lock, which protects the appliance from accidental activation and from curious children’s fingers.
For your convenience there is a timer and/or a warning signal. Especially good is the fact that all the buzzers can be turned off or adjust their volume if desired, an option that many fans of quiet at home will surely appreciate. The oven light can be turned on and off to make it easier to see everything inside the oven.

The manufacturer recommends you can purchase special MIELE tablets for cleaning from any Authorised Service Centre.
THE INGENIOUS IS NOT SIMPLE
MIELE DGM 6800 was developed by the company’s engineers who studied several mutually exclusive problems and found very interesting solutions, which allowed to combine seemingly incompatible things.
MIELE oven cavities are always made of stainless steel, to ensure maximum longevity and durability. Microwave waves do not like metal, because it can provoke fires and the formation of sparks. With the help of… silicone. Specially designed joints seal the stainless steel walls of the cooking cabinet.
Secondly, the appliance door must be designed so as to maximize the preservation of steam and at the same time prevent the escape of microwaves.
Created to fit into 45cm high alcoves.
WARRANTY: 2 years.
COUNTRY OF MANUFACTURER: Germany.
In the PureLine special emphasis is placed on using less material. Devices fit harmoniously into the interior, bringing it a note of modernity. An abundance of glass elements for a feeling of peace and quiet. The horizontal stainless steel elements and the monolithic handles, which seem to hover on the glass, are a special feature.
Like all appliances in this range, the MIELE DGM 6800 is available in four colors: CleanSteel stainless steel, Obsidian Black Obsidian, Brilliant White Diamond White and Havana Brown Havana.
