Nine of the Best Sustainable Appliances

Ahead of Earth Day 2024

Energy efficiency has always been important for homeowners, but it has arguably become one of the most important drivers in the last two years given increased energy costs. According to GfK, almost half of homeowners (49%) consider it an important criterion when buying major domestic appliances. There is also an increased awareness of climate change (2023 was confirmed as the warmest on record) and the environmental impact of purchases. For the last 150 years, Miele has endeavoured to create products that are designed and built to last. Ahead of Earth Day (22 April 2024), find below nine of Miele’s best eco-friendly appliances:

Miele Washing Machine: 10KG PowerWash WEK365

Miele washing machines are tested for the equivalent of 20 years' use and are built using high grade materials – 90% of which are recyclable. Testing includes running the cottons 95°C programme for 10,000 hours, the equivalent of five washes a week for 20 years. As well as opening and closing the door 60,000 times to replicate once a day for 64 years. Rated ‘A’ for energy, Miele’s latest10KG PowerWash WEK365 model makes it possible to for larger households to wash more, less often - helping to save time and energy in the process. All Miele washing machines feature intelligent automatic load recognition, which analyses what has been loaded into the drum and uses only the amount of water and electricity needed for excellently efficient cleaning and rinsing results. Thanks to the design of Miele’s special honeycomb drum, clothes will also last longer as garments glide across the drum on a thin film of water, ensuring no snagging for thorough but very gentle cleaning, even on handwash items.

Electronic temperature controls ensure the oven never overheats or uses excessive energy, while residual heat is also used to finish cooking, helping to reduce energy usage further. By continually improving its products, Miele's oven energy consumption has been reduced by 49% in the past 20 years. This recently launched A+ rated oven features a range of programmes including Miele’s new AirFry function for crispy results without the need of an additional countertop appliance, and its Eco Fan Heat, which reduces energy use by 30% when cooking on a single shelf. The Fan Plus and Fan Grill functions also allow for lower temperatures to be used when cooking to help save energy.

Miele’s design and development teams carefully consider the environmental impact at every stage of the products and services’ life cycles, resulting in appliances that have the least possible impact on the environment, with the goal to make them 100% carbon neutral. Miele washing machines, tumble dryers and dishwashers all save energy and water and are made with reduced plastic and a greater use of recycled materials for a sustainable solution both inside and out.

What’s more, Miele’s appliances are continuously tested for performance during their development phase for the equivalent of 20 years’ use with no compromise on performance or results. Appliances are designed to be easily repaired with spare parts readily available for at least 15 years, either online or via retail partners.

Thanks to Miele’s dedication to sustainability, we won the Sustainability Prize for the second time in October 2023. We have also committed to a number of projects to support research in energy efficiency, such as involvement in Denmark's first "Green City" as a standard equipment supplier, for which Miele supplied 15,000 domestic appliances for a project in a newly transformed quarter of Copenhagen. Miele also supports various beekeeping initiatives, which have a positive impact on the eco-system around the factories.
