Miele & Cie. was founded in 1899 by Carl Miele and Reinhard Zinkann. Since then it has always been a family-owned, family-run company now in its fourth generation. Since the founding days, Miele's been guided by a mantra, a vision, to be "Immer Besser".
Translated from German, these words mean "Always Better" or "Forever Better". We truly believe in spirit of these words and in keeping with the patriarchs' principle, Miele produces products that are of the highest standards in terms of quality materials and craftsmanship, durability and reliability.
Our pioneering spirit is the result of four generations of quality without compromise. With precision German engineering we use only the finest materials coupled with the latest, most advanced manufacturing technology. We produce advanced products that are safe, reliable and easy-to-use.
The long life of Miele appliances is legendary—we know of some that are still going strong after 30 years. This is not by accident, it is by design. As a matter of fact, all Miele appliances must endure a 10,000 hour endurance test which equates to a life span of 20 years in order to proudly carry the family name and ever enter your home. The result of this commitment Miele has earned a global reputation as the quality leader.
Miele entered the United States marketplace in 1984 with a clear and unwavering mission. That was to build the Miele brand as the preeminent, quality leader in household appliances one customer at a time. And that is exactly what we've been doing for 27 years.
With a national network of elite sales and service dealerships working closely with us, Miele offers a full product assortment of appliances for the kitchen, laundry room—even the broom closet! Take a closer look at us. We hope to earn your patronage.
