Induction with downdraught extractor.

Miele has launched its latest TwoInOne cooktop, combining induction cooking technology with an integrated downdraught extractor. Ideal for open-plan kitchens, the central extractor on the 80cm wide cooktop is framed by two variable PowerFlex zones.

PowerFlex technology allows pots and frying pans of a variety of diameters to be used. It is also possible for two individual rings to join up automatically when large pots or pans are placed on the surface.

TwinBooster mode is ideal for bringing a large volume of water to the boil in a short time, while the food-warming and Stop & Go functions ensure additional convenience.

The TwoInOne features touch controls for the cooking zones and extractor. Users can also interact with Miele’s unique Con@ctivity function. This function automatically adjusts the power output of the extractor to the cooktop settings. At the end of cooking and after a brief fan run-on period, the extractor automatically switches itself off.

For optimum grease separation, the TwoInOne features a 10-ply stainless-steel grease filter, housed in a practical filter box. This can be removed easily and placed in a dishwasher for cleaning. Miele’s CleanCover is located behind the grease filters and constitutes a smooth lining which is easy to clean and protects against exposure to moving parts. Any spillovers are contained by a tray below the extractor grille.

The Eco Motor used in the downdraught extractor is powerful, energy-efficient and quiet. Technical components are housed in the base unit and take up relatively little space, maximising the retention of useful storage space in the base unit.

Installed in a flush or proud-mount configuration, the Miele TwoInOne is available for an introductory selling price of $5,799 from Miele Experience Centres and Miele Authorised Retailers.
