Princeton, NJ - November 2010 - Miele, the world's largest family-owned and operated appliance company, announces the debut of two new electric indoor barbecue grills expanding the culinary diversity of their award-winning CombiSet™ series. The indoor CombiSet™ grills will be available in 12" or 15" widths and offer dual heating zones/controls so searing, cooking or warming can be done simultaneously. For example, searing on the front zone while slow cooking or warming on the rear. Cast iron gratesand lava rocks evenly distribute heat to offer an exceptional outdoor grilling experience – with the convenience of cooking inside.
"Grilling is the ultimate for preparing flavorful steaks, chops, fish… and, of course, vegetables taste fantastic from the barbecue as well," states Paul McCormack, Spokesperson for Miele. "Depending on where you are in the country, it's not always convenient or even possible to grill outside, especially when the weather is cold or wet. And items requiring extra attention may just be easier to cook indoors where the rest of the meal is being prepared and where you can enjoy more time with your family and guests. For the at-home chef that loves to grill, Miele's compact indoor CombiSet™ barbecue is a perfect accompaniment for an island or an expanded cooking station," states McCormack.
The new indoor grills' sleek stainless frame allows mixing and matching with Miele's 12 existing CombiSet™ elements in perfect design harmony. Other CombiSet™ units offered by Miele include: Wok Burner; Tepan Yaki; Induction, Gas and Electric Burners; Electric Boiler and Fryer; Scale; Pot Rest and Griddle. CombiSets™ units are extremely versatile and can stand solo or combine to fully customize any cooking surface – even create multiple cooking stations. Integrating gas with electric or induction offers opportunities that just aren't available with standard cooktops. "CombiSets™ are a one stop shop for homeowners who want to customize a cooktop array that truly speaks to their individual culinary needs," states McCormack. Earlier this year, Miele CombiSets™ were awarded the Good Design Award from the Chicago Athenaeum, Museum of Architecture and Design.
The Electric Barbecue CombiSet™ will retail for $1,299 (model CS 1312 BG – 12" width) and $1,499 (model CS 1322 BG – 15" width). Both will be available December 1, 2010.
