One often wonders why luxury is so dear for those who appreciate and shell out a considerable amount to acquire high standards. When we were invited to experience the German engineering and excellence at the Miele lounge in Gurgaon, it was quite evident why some things are designed to be Immer Besser (forever better).
The 115-year-old company was established in the year 1899 and in is presently run by the fourth generation of the family. Miele as a brand is one of the most coveted brands in luxury kitchen segment and is used by some of the most renowned families across the country. The in-built appliances and clean, sleek designs of the products with integrated smart technologies are some of the top reasons that celebrity homes and boutique properties often pick this brand.
When we reached the Miele experiential lounge, we were welcomed by the in-house chef, who demonstrated live cooking using the kitchen appliances that are available in India. We were first introduced to the smart coffee machines, which can not only brew all styles of coffee and tea but also have facilities like auto detection of the size of the cup and quantity with a direct sensor, automatic cleaning of milk and making two cuppas at one go! The coffee machine model (CVA 6401) comes for INR 3,69,990 and can grind fresh beans and prepare two coffee specialties such as cappuccino and latte macchiato at the same time.
As part of the dry kitchen, the next appliance in the row was the huge ref-freezer which was a combination of Left Hinged Freezer and a Right hinged refrigerator with fully integrated systems. The capacity of the units combined was 187 litres + 453 litres, both equipped with halogen lighting, ice cube/water dispenser, fresh drawers and touch control operation. The approx. price of each unit is INR 9,49,990 and INR 9,99,990 – a costly affair but totally worth it as it consumes a very significant amount of electricity in a year and is totally environment friendly. Another option that people ask for while installing freezers is along with the wine conditioner that has a capacity of 102 Bottles and costs approx INR 11,99,990 for an all touch operation cooling unit.
We were next shown the induction units and the smart sensor electric chimney that can convert your kitchen into a state-of-art space. A wide variety of microwaves and inbuilt ovens used for roasting, grilling, baking and other forms of cooking were also showcased to us (the starting range of basic models for INR 3,00,000 and above).
Since most concept kitchens are now divided into dry and wet kitchens, the Miele dishwasher model starting from INR 3,29,990 was showcased as part of the wet kitchen area. The semi-integrated machine with sensor tronic display and 3D cutlery tray is a big hit among consumers and can last upto 30 years, it was told to us.
All in all, if you are planning to revamp your kitchen or your lives then we would definitely recommend a visit to the Miele Lounge to experience the best in luxury.
