Take the quick-to-cook combination of microwave and convection and add infrared, and you have the Miele MasterChef Convection Speed Oven, a double oven that lets you prepare a meal with speed and still have it come out golden and crispy. Hotter and safer infrared radiation combines with microwaves to cook the food evenly on the inside, while the convection browns it on the outside. The MasterChef also features a residual heat cooking system, which calculates the heat needed to finish cooking the meal, and if the oven is hot enough, automatically switches to an energy-conservation mode.
