You can now cook the perfect stack of pancakes at home by using the one-touch, intelligent temperature sensor and timer technology on selected Miele induction cooktops.
Each pancake will be cooked perfectly – consistent in colour and texture on both sides – with just one touch using TempControl technology that provides a fast, even heat all over the pan.
It’s possible to achieve improved cooking results with much less effort across a range of dishes using TempControl, as Miele’s Culinary Expert Loughlin Hunter explains further.
Achieve perfect results with less effort using TempControl and timer
Miele’s Home Economist Loughlin Hunter says that TempControl sensors keep the pan and the contents of your pot at a consistent temperature so there’s no risk of overcooking or burning food.
“The TempControl simmer setting maintains your sauce at a consistent temperature – so it will never boil. In contrast, preparing sauce on a conventional cooktop requires you to reduce the heat as the food starts to overheat. As I do quite a bit of deep frying, it’s safer than gas as it maintains the oil at the required temperature,” Mr Hunter says.
Miele’s PowerSelect function enables you to set the exact temperature and cooking duration to achieve perfect results with minimal supervision.
Favourite foods to cook using TempControl
There are three TempControl ranges purposely designed for certain foods. The lowest range is excellent for frying eggs, simmering sauces and reducing liquids.
Simply crack the egg into the pan, set the timer and you can practically walk away and it’s done. No more guesswork to determine whether the yolk and egg white are fully cooked. The medium TempControl range is ideal for sautéing prawns whilst the highest range suits pan searing and wok cooking.
Mr Hunter says, “My favourite foods to cook with TempControl are stir fries, pancakes, frying eggs and searing foods like meat and seafood. “Cooking is enjoyable because the even heat produces perfect results consistently.”
DirectSelection – Total control over temperature and time
You can select power settings and times quickly and intuitively. Each individual cooking zone has its own back-lit numerical keybank display. The numerical display is not visible when the cooktop is switched off – for a minimalist, elegant appearance. (PIC: Close up of power settings.)
Big pots – fast and no fuss
Cook casseroles and pasta fast thanks to Miele’s PowerFlex induction cooking zone, which combines individual rings to form a large ring or a rectangular casserole zone. The PowerFlex zone spreads heat evenly over the entire base of large oversized cookware, and fits different sized pans next to each other.
The unsurpassed speed is unique, with Miele’s tried-and-tested TwinBooster technology boosting output up to 7.4 kW.
“Induction is so fast and makes it easy to feed the whole family quickly,” Mr Hunter says.
Keep Warm Plus function
The Keep Warm Plus function maintains your food at serving temperature. Its gentle heating prevents over-drying so the food remains moist and delicious.
“This maintains the food’s quality while waiting for last minute dinner guests to arrive, and it’s handy to ensure all food is delivered to the dining table at the same time. It reduces stress and makes cooking a joy,” Mr Hunter says.
Miele’s induction cooktops are great for families with young children, as only the pan heats up and the cooking zone remains comparatively cool. Miele’s TempControl sensors ensures there is no splattering of fat when deep frying, as it maintains the oil at the required temperature.
