Miele

Anyone with a dishwasher knows how wonderful it is not to get your hands all dried out from soapy water several times a day. And in 2015 Miele has taken the Most Satisfied Customers – Dishwashers award. So here’s brief rundown of Miele. And you can check the survey results here.

Miele oven in kitchenThe people behind the name

In 1899, engineer Carl Miele and businessman Reinhard Zinkann founded a company for the manufacture of cream separators in Germany. Their guiding principle became a strong business philosophy: “immer besser”, which means “better and better”.

Beginning with only four lathes and one drilling machine, they soon grew. Miele now has branches across Australia, Europe, North and South America, Asia and even Africa.
