Miele & Otto Wilde Grillers: Fits!
Wondering why Miele and Otto Wilde, of all people, go so well together? Quite simply: the complementarity. Both companies focus on developing and marketing premium products. Otto Wilde developed the Over-fired Broiler “The Otto Grill” in 2015 and made it possible for numerous happy customers to grill the perfect steak at home. Over time, we developed different models for different needs: Lite version for customers who are focusing on the essential – the perfect steak and premium variants for their own kitchen. Speaking of kitchens, Miele has long been an expert in this field! When Miele was already busy developing and marketing high quality kitchen appliances, most of the Otto Wilde crew hadn’t even been born yet!
Many years, dozens of steaks and burgers later, Otto Wilde is also becoming more and more involved with the subject of cuisine. To be precise: outdoor cooking! At Otto Wilde known as The Otto Platform. The Otto Platform is a modular and high-quality outdoor kitchen that can be customized and expanded. At the heart of The Otto Platform is the highly innovative G32 gas grill. The G32 is a revolutionary, smart gas grill that leaves no wish unfulfilled and has already broken records at this point. With The Otto Platform, you can create your very own open-air kitchen with the help of umpteen different modules.
Miele was founded as early as 1899, and today’s globally active company began with the manufacture of milk centrifuges. Today, every child probably knows that this is no longer the case. No matter what room you are in at home, there is a very high probability that you will come across a Miele product. From cooking and baking to coffee preparation, from dishwashing to laundry and floor care, it’s all there! Miele has received numerous design awards and accolades over the years. In addition, many test winners at Stiftung Warentest confirm the quality of the various Miele products. Nils Wilde, CEO Otto Wilde, is also enthusiastic about the technical expertise of the Miele Group: “With its technical excellence in the field of premium built-in kitchen appliances, Miele is in a position to make valuable contributions towards expanding our portfolio.”
