Miele and A Well Designed Life –

BlogtourCali and a Well Designed Life via Modenus continues. Before heading to the Westedge Design Fair, the team is invited to attend a brunch served up by sponsor Miele. This turned out to not only be a phenominal brunch (which is my favorite meal by the way) but a demonstration of their new wonder, the Miele Steam Oven. You will no doubt be as amazed as we ALL were when you see the spread prepared by using only a steam oven. Yes, Even the deviled eggs. AND in case you’re wondering, Miele is pronounced MEE-la.


First, Miele welcomed hungry bloggers to beautifully set tables….


Just getting started here, notice the fresh made from scratch yogurt by the Miele chefs. Yeah, that’s right.


Egg dishes, salmon and anything that required cooking, was prepared for us using the Miele Steam Oven.

This is the sleek Miele Steam Oven. See, it looks very normal.

European Design and “the perfect marriage of form and function.”


Here are the BlogTourCali members, see how polite we all look, obviously waiting to dig in. Notice someone is not looking at the camera but staring at the food. Not me.

Did you know that Miele has been around for more than 100 years?! Yes, they began with a washing machine and today their dishwasher is the quietest in the industry. It also gets your dishes very clean.


The Miele Showroom Crew and Staff. Thank you for your wonderful hospitality and generosity in creating such a lovely event for us!

Miele Coffee maker

We were all treated to a selection of speciality coffees and cappuccinos. Yes, we were in heaven! 24″ PureLine Whole Bean Built-In Coffee System with DirectSensor Controls, OneTouch Function, Automatic Rinsing, BrilliantLight, Timer and 10 User Profiles
