Debuting in February 2008 were five new island and wall ventilation hoods that increase Miele’s product offering to more than 30 hoods. The four 30” – 48” width units are available in classic stainless steel or may be custom ordered in over 200 colors for the ultimate in design customization. An impressive 70” wide, double chimney model DA 5341 D island hood comes in stainless and provides a double blower.
“Miele ventilation hoods really do move air in style,” states Paul McCormack, Senior Marketing Manager for Miele, Inc. “Our newest ventilation hoods offer clean, simple lines that are so beautiful – they feel more like commissioned art, than functional appliances. In fact, each one is carefully crafted – almost entirely by hand – by the artisans working at Miele’s Arnsberg, German production facility.”
The five new styles range from 30” to 70” wide, including both island and wall installations. With over 200 RAL colors, designers can fully customize or simply stand out in stainless. All the hoods come with 4 speeds, centered controls, delayed shutdown (for either 5 or 15 minutes) and programmable filter timers that indicate when it’s time to wash the dishwasher-safe filters. Built-in smart technology alerts the vent hood if it is left on its most intensive level to automatically shut off in 10 minutes. Each wall hood may recirculate air as well as vent to the exterior, while the island hoods are vented-only. The new products also come complete with integrated halogen lighting (plus dimmer function) to provide a superior view of what’s underneath and to provide ambiance.
