Outstanding Quality and Timeless Design Since the company's founding in 1899, Miele has remained true to its “Immer Besser” (forever better) brand promise. This means the peace of mind of knowing that choosing Miele is a good decision – and probably the decision of a lifetime. Miele appliances are subjected to the strictest stress and endurance tests before their market launch. Miele has won many tests carried out by the Stiftung Warentest, a German consumer watchdog organization, proving why they are the number one choice. Their design represents innovation, value, and timeless elegance. It shapes the user experience - meeting expectations, facilitating handling, and creating trust.
