: Based in Gütersloh, Germany, Miele has long been touted for its efficient, high-quality products. The company was founded in 1899 and started out making a cream separator. Soon, a washing machine was introduced, followed by an assortment of other appliances. Today, the fourth-generation family-owned firm continues to design and manufacture its offerings in Germany. Miele opened its 10th U.S. gallery in Scottsdale last year.
: Adams explains that the showroom’s staff helps homeowners select items that will fit their lifestyles and then directs them to appropriate dealers. She says an emphasis is placed on “support and service of a very high-quality, performance-oriented product.”
What’s in store
: The Modern-looking gallery is filled with an assortment of appliances and includes vignettes that showcase products for the kitchen, butler’s pantry and wine room. These range from in-wall coffee systems, hand-welded and hand-finished ventilation hoods, convection steam ovens and induction cooktops, to a collection of cooking modules that includes a wok burner, fryer and teppanyaki griddle. Find dishwashers with compartmentalized trays for silverware; wine refrigerators with acacia wood shelving and three independent cooling areas; and easy-to-program refrigerators and freezers that can regulate temperature and humidity levels based on what kinds of food are being stored. Washers, dryers and vacuum cleaners also are displayed. In addition, the gallery hosts monthly cooking demonstrations and informational classes on how to use various appliances.
: RemoteVision™ Services, one of Miele’s latest offerings, enables some appliances to be remotely monitored by the company so that homeowners—regardless of their whereabouts—can be contacted if a problem is detected
