Horrible, horrible, horrible - run for the hills!
I bought TWO of these Miele ovens and although they came highly recommended they have turned out to be a disappointment.
Not only are both extremely uneven in temperature throughout the oven (despite the use of a fan force setting) but the condensation (created during the cooking process) accumulates between the door and the oven and then leaks into the cupboards below.
Extremely poorly designed from a both a technical and functional standpoint.
I am a skilled pastry chef... so when I called Miele customer service and was told I don’t know how to use the oven correctly... I was both dumbfounded and highly offended.
Save your money and go with a cheaper brand - it’ll give you the same (if not better) results.
Miele service back up addressed my issue very professionally
I have edited my review after receiving outstanding service from Miele. When product suppliers provide such personal service and backup, one can’t expect much more.
If only all manufacturers provided this quality of backup!
Purchased in June 2018 at Harvey Norman.
Just purchased a new Miele oven , our old Miele was less than 10 years old( had to replace timing unit and this week the door fell off its hinges) This one had better last or it is goodbye Miele forever.

Cooks at different temps
The salesman at Harvey Norman saw me coming!
I was looking at a Bosch (good reviews) at $1200. The salesman led me to the miele "for only a couple of hundred more this has the following extra features..."
By the time I found out it was double the price O was sold on the 4 workable shelves that all cook at the same temp, no more swapping over shelves halfway through cooking.
FYI it is a massive lie
I bake from home and sell my goods. This oven is not as advertised. It is mediocre. It does not cook evenly at all and if you have food on the 4 shelves the top shelf will burn the rest will be undercooked
It is also about 1/4 as heavy as our old oven, extremely light weight
Purchased in August 2020 at Harvey Norman.
Oven glass shattered when using pyrolytic function
I owned this oven for just below a year. My very first use of the pyrolytic cleaning, the glass of the oven shattered half way into the cleaning function. I called service line to get it fixed, took two weeks for the appointment. When the serviceman came, we were told that it's rare that the middle panel of the glass shattered and that glass is out of stock and we have to wait another month to get it. The sales service / repair takes ages and I will rethink about getting any Miele products moving forward.

Making perfect bread with the moisture plus

Very much meh
I'm fed up with my stupid oven racks tilting when sliding them out, so whatever scalding hot dish sitting on it slips forwards and nearly burns me or crashes onto the glass of the door. It's a safety hazard.
I thought it was just another case of the brand not living up to the hype, seeing as I've had far cheaper crappier ovens in the past with the sense to have the little bracing arm at the rear of the racks.
Also, the oven itself is so-so at best, doesn't cook evenly and the temperature is usually out by about 15 degrees. Not what I expect...ed from Miele, not at all. I was looking to just get a new oven when my friend said I could get telescopic arms for this one, to stop the rack tilting. Great! I thought. Until I learned they were $380!! For ONE set!! For one thing, they should be included with the oven itself. At least two sets, or fix the design of the rack so it doesn't tilt. And for another thing, the same product is about $260 (GBP136) on the UK site. That makes the Australian pricing about 50% higher. Shame on Miele.

Overpriced oven sliders
Oven is fine.
Flexiclip pyrofit oven slides work fine however in 2014, these slides cost $279.01 per pair.
This week I paid $490.00 for the same product. My initial purchase was not part of a special deal with the oven but purchased separately.
This price hike seems extortionate
Purchased in December 2019 at Miele Online Shop for $490.00.
Yeah it Cooks food fine, but the air doesn't circulate properly you need to rotate your trays to keep an even brown. Also it uses sooooo much electricity and is super noisy when it cools which takes forever.
The reviewer stated that an incentive was offered for this review
Get very little for the price
For $2,700 plus tax. The oven has ONE rack that doesn't slide and is almost impossible to pull out. i.e., it's useless.
Each sliding additional rack costs $300. plus shipping. I needed two. That brings the total cost to $3,300.
Miele should be ashamed of itself.

Though the oven it does the job well and I mainly choose it for its self cleaning ability - The main warning I have is that if you don't have the expensive runners - the rack when pulled forward tends to tip the dish forward and you risk it falling and shattering your glass and injuring the user - Having teens in the house who use the oven it is rather dangerous. We have one set of telescopic runners but it really should come with 2 sets with the oven at no extra cost it is a safety risk - Also after running the first self clean cycle the door did not seem to close the same and I have somehow managed to shatter the inner glass glass and am still trying to find a way to replace it but it is incredibly expensive to replace
Purchased in January 2017 at Harvey Norman for $2,400.00.
Dose the job
The oven it self dose the job, in the beginning I struggled to understand how to use it with all new gadgets and what not, in saying this I felt as if for the price paid for the oven it dose cook the food evenly once you know how to operate the settings.
Fantastic fan force and self cleaning
Fantastic fan force and self cleaning . Heats up quickly and keeps the temperature very good. The best over i have ever had. Amazing grill on it also. The self cleaning is amazing. Although you do need to remove attachments on it. Cooks things to absolute perfection. I would like to see the self cleaning being a bit easier in terms of removing attachments. Other than that its fab
Very happy with this product was installed in my place and has been so good to use. I often use it for cooking meat and cakes. Unlike previous ovens I have used in past which bake unevenly this has been so much better. Also it’s great tha when it’s hot that heat is not felt externally eapically if kids are around.
This oven is very good. It has multiple settings for different food types and baking needs. I love that you can turn on fan forced if you want to speed up your cooking time or change to grill, roast etc. The timer is an excellent feature... being able to simpy time your cooking or have the oven turn on and off at a particular time automatically when you are out of the house to come back to a lovely smelling cooked meal os delightful!
Questions & Answers
The grilling element in my oven is in the process of collapsing. It is only 5 years old. How do I fix the problem and how much will it cost. Never had any problems with my old Miele oven. Very disappointed.

What did the service number say?
Hi there. We have had this microwave for 6 weeks and its been perfect until now. I cant get any power when depressing the power button. There has been no tripping and the internal light works when you open the door. Any suggestions??
Hi, thank you for your question. The H2661BP is not a microwave nor has a power button. It is actually the oven.
If the power button is not working then first check if the relevant fuse is still on. You are likely to need a service call if fuse is still on. Please contact us on 1300 464 353 or leave an enquiry via https://www.miele.com.au/domestic/contact-us-3073.htm and our team can assist you as soon as possible. Kind regards, Shane.
