Miele has just released information about some new appliances, notably their first counter top coffee maker. These appliances have got a nice appeal and flair to them, which we believe would make them look good in almost any kitchen.
The Miele CM5 coffee maker was sourced from Miele's built-in coffee system. It's nice to see them branch out into something that will fit in almost every kitchen, at least from a coffee addict's point of view. The CM5 is available in either black or white. Miele claims that the percolator, pump, and heater have will make no fewer than 50,000 cups of coffee or espresso before needing to be replaced. That's a bold claim that's kind of hard to verify. Even if you brew a few cups a day, it could take decades for you to consume 50,000 cups.
You can brew espressos, double espressos, and a variety of different coffees. You can customize the quantity of ground coffee per cup as well as the temperature. This coffee maker accepts coffee beans, which is kind of cool, as well as ground coffee. It can also froth milk. The spout is height adjustable, so that it can fit a bunch of different cups or glasses.
The Miele DA 7000 recirculation hood looks quite distinctive and will set itself apart in any kitchen. The kitchen island version can be suspended by four steel wires, making it look like it floats above cooking surfaces. The front face of the hood can be changed upon request. This range hood has a 600 m³/h rate, electronic touch controls, dishwasher safe metal grease filters, 20W halogen lights with dimmer function and a safety auto switch-off. All this tech doesn't come cheap, as it's currently on sale in Europe for about $3,800 (€2,700).
