What is a Convection Steam Oven?

Convection steam ovens inspire a whole new level of cooking. They combine both wet and dry cooking with the advantage of evenly distributed heat. Any dish prepared in a conventional oven, range or microwave oven can be prepared in a convection steam oven, but the combination appliance offers the cook more control over the finished product, thus creating tastier dishes.

The movement of hot air ensures consistent heating and browning throughout and the steam adds moisture at the precise right time and amount, resulting in delicious, nutritious meals. In a convection steam oven moistness and flavor are retained, eliminating the need for additional oil, basting or fattening sauces. This is what makes them great for the health conscious cook. 

So, what are the pro’s of a convection steam oven? 

  • Heating and browning remains consistent from the convection
  • Steam adds moisture, so extra oil and fat aren't needed to keep food juicy   
  • Overcooking is more difficult 
  • Breads, bagels, and pastries can be proofed, baked and crisped
  • Meats defrost gently and evenly, and hot spots are eliminated
