With a range of easy to use steaming functions, the new Steam Ovens give you the confidence to explore a wider range of culinary possibilities, assisted by appealing interfaces that make it simple to achieve brilliant results every time. The ovens deliver superior performance thanks to new heating elements for steam generation. This enables a range of dedicated steam cooking functions, with three levels of performance available across the range – Gentle Steam, Active Steam and Total Steam.
Gentle Steam – Triple the taste experience with a steam touch
Gentle Steam is an effective solution that helps to improve the cooking results in an easy to use way. Steam is produced by adding water into a space at the base of the cavity, which adds humidity to the conventional cooking process. This offers superior results when cooking bread, meat and fish by preserving the moisture inside food, while still ensuring it can be deliciously crispy on the outside. Preparing these specific food types is made stress-free: The innovative food category legend leads you through the preparation process step by step by featuring quantity of water required, tray level position, temperature band and average cooking duration. For starting the cooking process the functional oven’s program knob gives you easy access to the desired food category. Steaming has never been so easy.
Active Steam – Add a tasty touch of steam with three levels of humidity
Available on Core+ Steam Ovens, the Active Steam system offers an even wider range of control when cooking with both the traditional heating element and with steam. Water is added to the steam system via a dedicated drawer on the front of the oven. When cooking at temperatures between 140°C-220°C, the introduction of steam can help to reduce weight loss and reduce the cooking time required. Automatic or manual modes can be used to select from three different levels of humidity – Steam High (75%), Steam Mid (50%) and Steam Low (25%), helping to enhance the cooking of particular foods.
Total Steam – Turn your traditional oven into a 100% steam oven
The top of the range Premium Steam Oven features Total Steam, a solution that also lets you use your oven just like a traditional steamer, cooking with pure and superheated steam at temperatures of 100°C or less. Integrating the Active Steam functionality, the steam oven offers not only Steam High (75%), Steam Mid (50%) and Steam Low (25%), but also up to 100% steam saturation. This is ideal for fish, eggs, vegetables, rice, or cereals, and delivers extraordinary cooking results, with zero weight loss, while retaining all the food’s nutrients. Total Steam can also make use of the graduated humidity control used by the Active Steam system to cook specific dishes that require lower humidity levels. Water is added to the steam system via a dedicated drawer on the front of the oven.
