With this chocolate cake and pumpkin with cream of maple syrup I welcome the autumn and that finally I have oven and oven go! One good move of House things is that I have had to change some things because not I could bring them home, and that has happened to me with the oven.

When I got to my new house the oven not helped me: a furnace of thousand years that was broken and that she could not cook. I thought about it much and gave many laps but what better option than Miele? There are many kilns, to drive you crazy, but I'm super happy with my decision. Oven multi function with which I can also do rich breads and an endless recipes because besides the functions with which we are already familiar, has a new one for me, the climate function.

This function allowing to add steam in certain moments of cooking. It is a combination of air hot plus and moisture, or up and down with moisture ((esta humedad es la que aporta la función clima) heat and makes that we can do some incredible roasts and baking almost professional in extra juicy meats and breads with a very cruji bark) entity.

What I have tried so far I has demonstrated once more that every oven is different, and that if I previously needed 50 minutes to bake a cake, now 35 enough me to have a cake that drooling.

But one of the things that most surprised me is how to clean. You will see. Miele oven installed but then you receive the visit of a technician who explains how the oven works and how to keep it perfect. When we got to the topic of cleaning, I asked which was the function of cleaning. He explained to me that he didn't. That oven almost cleaned only once used, makes the film that covers the entire inside of the oven that it's not necessary to rub and to the and after using simply must pass a damp cloth.

You can imagine my face weighing "Yes of course, when I roast a chicken and fill all fat, say with a damp cloth will clean, clear". He explained to me that it is very important to not wipe it with anything other than mild soap and a cloth, anything scouring pads, or cleansers against fat or anything. I did not believe it me. For what I am going to cheat, I do not think it me.

As well, yesterday as well a few tomatoes to repeat my tomatoes soup. Not wanting to stain my new trays have to rub them. I decided to use my old I brought a tray. But I did not realize that was cracked. The first difference I noticed when roasting the tomatoes was that they were roasted in 25 minutes, when I normally have between 40 and 50 minutes. The second surprise was not nice ta: liquid that drop tomatoes grilled is had crept by the crack of the tray, had fallen on the oven and the heat had dried. Horror! I thought! To see how to get out of this. But I remembered the technician and decided without any faith, follow their advice. Kidding is the word that best defines how I was when passing the damp cloth all the dirt came out. He did not lack or SOAP. Take already! A super extra of my oven that makes it thrilled my decision 100%. By the way now Miele wants to reward this decision that you feel most proud. Here is the information to win this contest so much fun.
