The German appliance manufacturer introduced the revolutionary Dialog oven at IFA in Berlin last month which proposes an entirely new method for cooking food. Electromagnetic waves are generated via a modular unit that are then distributed in the oven using two antennas. This energy creates heat which in turn cooks whatever is in the oven.
However, the frequency of these wave is extremely precise, and continuously adjusted throughout the process to cook the food exactly how the user prefers every time. While this may sound somewhat similar to the process behind a microwave, it is actually much more exacting: This trademarked M Chef technology is based on what’s used by physicians to keep organs at specific temperatures before transplantation.
Miele has also come up with Gourmet Units, the measure of energy for the oven, which will be implemented in place of the Fahrenheit degree system we normally use, with one unit corresponding to one kilojoule. But perhaps the most exciting and appealing component of the Dialog oven allows those not culinarily inclined to bake a soufflé or cook beef bourguignon to perfection with just the touch of a button. Used with the Miele mobile app, recipes have already been tested, inputted, and stored within the appliance, so the user just needs to push ‘start’.
Around a hundred recipes will be initially offered and are being developed by Miele with acclaimed international chefs. Also, because of the advanced heating technology, different types of food can be cooked in the oven at the same time, and even on one tray. Forget lengthy dinner prep—now your meatloaf, potatoes, and bread can all be in the oven at the same time.
While the Dialog oven is up to 70 percent faster than other modern cooking methods, your time saved will come at a cost, as the price tag will be nearly $10,000. Coming to the market in April 2018 for German and Austrian customers, the oven will hopefully be available in 2019 for those in the U.S. Welcome to the future!
