Everyone wants to cook and eat healthier, but it’s a common misconception that it takes too much time to prepare healthy food or that it won’t taste as good. With a steam oven, cooking healthy has never been easier and you don’t have to sacrifice time or taste. Steam ovens cook faster than regular ovens, and the steam and convection combination ovens on the market are even faster.
The cooking process of a steam oven also provides healthier cooking options as no oil or fat is necessary to create moist, flavorful, quality food. Since steam is a natural, gentle cooking method, it preserves nutrients and taste, creating fresh and flavorful food without sacrificing taste or appearance. With speed and convenience, you can cook food healthier than ever, without giving up taste or appearance. A steam oven can really help change the way you eat by giving you more control over what you cook, and giving you healthy options. Here is a look at the amazing steam ovens available from four different brands.
Miele has a 24” Steam Oven available in either Classic or Europadesigns. The classic design has a Clean Touch Steel Finish with signature handle while the Europa design has a black glass and Clean Touch Steel Finish with square handle. The ovens are made for built-in installation and a separate 30″ trim kit can also be used for even more seamless integration into cabinetry. Both options include an LCD display, touch control pad with MasterChef technology and a food driven menu system. This oven is great for someone who is not necessarily a pro at cooking, as the exclusive MasterChef technology selects the optimal cooking results based on input that you provide, such as the type of food. The Miele Steam Oven also has an easy to clean stainless steel cavity to make cleanup simple.
Thermador offers a steam and convection combination oven. It is available in 24” or 30” installation if you buy the separate 30” trim kit which will help match it with your wall oven. It comes in black glass and with either a masterpiece or pro handle. The steam and convection oven has many cooking modes and pre-programmed settings that make it perfect for cooking almost anything, whether it’s seafood with just steam, or a 14 pound turkey with steam and convection combination. The oven features EasyCook, which has 40 different pre-programmed modes that match with different types of foods, giving you the proper temperature, humidity, and cooking time.
Overall, the Thermador Steam and Convection Oven will help you get higher, restaurant quality results with less effort and faster cooking times. Plus, the oven also has a 20-30 min clean cycle that will loosen any grease from cooking, so all you have to do is take a towel and easily wipe it off.
