Did you ever want to cook a turkey for dinner when it wasn’t Thanksgiving, but were turned off by how long it would take to cook? With the Thermador Masterpiece Steam and Convection Oven you can fully cook a turkey in half the time of a regular convection oven. In fact, the steam and convection oven will create better, healthier, restaurant quality food in general, with less effort.
The other day we had a demonstration of the oven at Mrs. G TV & Appliances, and roasted a turkey in it. We were able to easily fit a 14 pound turkey into the steam and convection oven and it was fully cooked and ready to eat in 90 minutes, using the steam/convection combo mode. A regular convection oven using dry air would take 3 hours to fully cook the turkey, but humidity is a better transmitter of heat, leading to faster cooking.
Also, with the combination of the steam and convection, the turkey was browned and crisp. No oil, no basting, and no seasonings were used, as the oven preserves and intensifies flavors, making it unnecessary. We simply put the turkey in the oven and cooked it. This means healthier and easier cooking, as well as better flavors. And in the end result, the white meat was just as juicy as the dark meat, so you never have to worry about dry turkey meat again. Plus, for those of you who enjoy saving the turkey drippings to make a gravy or soup, you still get the drippings as they collect on the tray below.
The steam and convection oven comes in black glass and with either a masterpiece or pro handle. It supports a 24” installation or 30” installation if you buy the separate 30” trim kit which will help match it with your wall oven. The steam and convection oven has many cooking modes and pre-programmed settings that make it perfect for cooking more than just a turkey. It features EasyCook, which has 40 different pre-programmed modes to choose from depending on what kind of food you are cooking. Just match your food to the available chart to find the right mode to use, and it will choose the proper temperature, humidity, and cooking time for that item.
Other cooking modes include straight steam, which is perfect for making vegetables and seafood, true convection, slow cook, and reheat mode. Reheat mode is great for things like leftover pizza. Just pop it in and the oven will make it taste just as good as when it first came out of the pizza oven, because the Thermador won’t take moisture or flavor out. That means no more rubbery leftover pizza.
Thermador’s steam/convection oven also has a 20-30 min clean cycle. The clean cycle will loosen any grease from cooking, so all you have to do is take a towel and easily wipe it off.
This is great to use for everyday meals, as it does almost everything a microwave or oven can do and will help you create healthier meals. Plus, you will get higher, restaurant quality results with less effort. After seeing it roast a 14 pound turkey in just 90 minutes, and tasting the crisp and juicy results, it is impossible not to be sold on this oven.
