Seven of the Best First Home Kitchen Appliances

If you have moved into your first home - congratulations! This is the start of a journey that you will always remember. According to the 2017 Houzz Kitchen Trends Study, 42% of respondents said that purchasing their home and wanting to make it their own was the catalyst for updating a kitchen design with 89% choosing to upgrade the appliances.

Miele is committed to designing appliances that combine advanced technology with superior quality, which is why it is the only manufacturer in its branch of industry to test products such as ovens, washing machines, tumble dryers and dishwashers to the equivalent of 20 years' use. For the last three years (2015/16/17), Miele has been awarded the prestigious title of Which? Home Appliance Brand of the Year, which is a reflection of everything we believe in - quality products and fantastic customer service.

From ovens to fridge freezers, dishwashers to washing machines, we have put together a list of appliances that are high on quality, functionality and style but also offer great value including our new Discovery Collection.
