Steam ovens keep more nutrients in your food, keep its color better, and eliminate the need for oil. Steaming also prevents cross-flavoring, so you can cook a salmon and chocolate torte at the same time without getting a fishy dessert. A combi-steam oven may be your favorite appliance at holiday time and year round.
Put simply, Steam Infusion cooks faster because it can put more energy efficiently into a product than other technologies.
Combi steamers can produce both dry (convection) and moist (steam) heat, and are capable of shifting between them automatically during the cooking process. It can be used to simultaneously steam vegetables or potatoes quickly and gently, while also roasting or braising meat and fish, or baking bread.
Combination microwaves use microwave energy, much like a traditional microwave does, but combined with the added benefits of fanned hot air, making grilling, roasting and baking easier and quicker than before with convection hot air giving that perfect roasted finish.
Leaving the microwave oven door open when not in use is not recommended because, on many microwaves, the light will stay on while the door is open. This shortens the life of the light. If you’ve just cooked something, it’s okay to leave the door open for a short time so that the steam can dissipate.
SELECT COOKING MODE AND TEMPERATURE: Turn oven on; SELECT the cooking mode. To cook in the combi or hot air mode, set thermostat to desired temperature. To cook in the steam mode, set thermostat to 200 F. The thermostat light will come on indicating oven temperature is below set point.
