Miele, a global appliance manufacturer known for its innovative, high-quality products, launched a revolutionary new oven, known as the Dialog oven, at IFA 2017 in Berlin this week. The oven was launched publicly at the major trade show for consumer electronics and home appliances, following an exclusive launch event in a smaller private setting. Trading will commence in the European market in April 2018. Read more about the launch in Miele’s press release.
The Dialog oven uses solid-state (or RF) cooking technology, a promising new development which is expected to revolutionize the way we cook at home. This groundbreaking achievement was possible thanks to Miele’s unsurpassed commitment to nurturing and bringing new technologies to the market, and its extensive experience in the research, development and manufacturing of high-quality domestic appliances.
To enhance its presence in the RF space, Miele formed a close collaborative partnership with Goji. The two companies worked together to integrate the capabilities of Goji’s RF technology into a high-end built-in oven, designed to fit in a standard wall-oven space. Combining solid-state cooking with convection and other premium features – such as moisture plus, pyrolytic cleaning and touch screen controls – it also has Miele’s iconic modern premium finish.
“Miele's jaw-dropping demos showed the Dialog oven is capable of an entirely new way of cooking that is both faster and easier.” - Jenny McGrath, Digital Trends
Goji’s technology enables much greater control of the heating process than conventional appliances, improving heating evenness and cooking quality while also shortening the cooking time. Meat and fish can be cooked to perfection and bread baked to professional standards in a fraction of the time required conventionally; while meals with multiple components – for example, bread, vegetables and meat – can be cooked at a high-quality simultaneously.
To showcase the unique features of Goji’s technology, Miele ran multiple astonishing cooking demonstrations, including one where fish was cooked in a block of ice. Journalists from around the world applauded as unique and delicious food was prepared in the new oven.

RF cooking utilizes a high power solid-state amplifier which, as part of a complete RF module, transmits radio wave energy into an object to heat it. Unlike the magnetron in a microwave oven, the digital RF module can accurately control the frequency, amplitude and phase of the radio-waves. When combined with Goji’s proprietary closed-feedback sensing algorithm, the RF module enables more uniform and consistent cooking results, while shortening and simplifying the cooking process.
Goji develops and markets RF cooking technologies for household, commercial and industrial applications in the food industry. The novel Goji™ technology facilitates controlled and responsive heating, delivering unprecedented cooking performance. The company holds a broad IP portfolio, with over 200 issued and pending patents on its technology. Goji provides a full range of licensing, design and manufacturing services to commercial and white goods appliance manufacturers. For more information, visit www.gojifoodsolutions.com.
