Miele was founded in Herzebrock, Germany more than 100 years ago, and the first product they manufactured was a cream separator. Soon after, they produced their first dishwasher and over the years they even produced cars, bicycles and mopeds. Miele has certainly come a long way since its 1899 beginnings, but their guiding philosophy ‘Immer Besser’ which means ‘Forever Better,’ has never changed. Today, you can see that philosophy come to life in all of Miele’s innovative kitchen, laundry and floor cleaning appliances. Miele always delivers timeless elegance, clean lines, and an extraordinary balance of form and function. Their new line of professional ranges are nothing short of amazing, incorporating steam and traditional cooking all in one. German engineering at its finest and a relentless pursuit of innovation and quality. Speaking of quality, Miele tests many of its products, such as its washing machines, tumble dryers, dishwashers and ovens, to the equivalent of 20 years of use.
