Miele expands its kitchen appliances collection with TwoInOne, a new induction hob, equipped with an integrated extractor. This model is characterized by elegant and high-performance appliance that opens up new approaches to design in modern kitchens.
The TwoInOne solution combines the induction technology developed in the Miele’s Bünde production plant and an integrated downdraught extractor from Arnsberg. On the 80 cm wide hob unit, the centred extractor is framed by two variable PowerFlex zones. The extractor is only recognisable by its grille; technical components allowing recirculation or vented extraction are discretely hidden in a kitchen cabinet below. «This makes the TwoInOne above all attractive for open-plan kitchens where technology very much plays a behind-the-scenes role» – says Ina Laukötter, Director Product Management Hobs and Hoods.
The TwoInOne extracts vapours and odours reliably and precisely where they originate. There is no need for consumers to change their habits as pots and frying pans with a variety of diameters can be used. In this respect, PowerFlex technology proves to be very versatile, allowing two individual rings to join up automatically when large pots or pans are placed on the surface (permanent pan-size sensing). In TwinBooster mode, a maximum output of 7.3 kW is available, for instance for bringing a large volume of water to the boil in next to no time. The food-warming and Stop & Go functions ensure additional convenience.
In addition, TwoInOne features Con@ctivity 2.0′: this automatic function adjusts the power output of the extractor to what is actually cooking. At the end of cooking and after a brief fan run-on period, the extractor automatically switches itself off again. Currently, more than 60% of all Miele cooker hoods are fitted with Con@ctivity 2.0. This results in more than 2,200 combinations of hob units and hoods.
