Steam in Regular Oven. Creating steam in regular oven is what separates a boring loaf of white bread shaped into a skinny oval and a real baguette. Steam slows the caramelization process on the outside of the loaf, enabling the entire loaf to continue expanding during the first few moments of baking.
With a CombiSteam, using your Combination Steam function you are mixing your convection/fan forced heat with the benefits of steam. It usually happens simultaneously (depending on brand and model) giving you more t balance between browning from the convection heat and moisture on the inside from the steam.
What is a Convection Steamer? A Convection Steamer cooks food at 212 degrees Fahrenheit, under no pressure. It’s the convective action of the steam that transfers the heat to cook the food. Because of their generally lower purchase price and other advantages, they’re the more popular choice.
Recipes involving puff pastry do surprisingly well in combi steam. In fact, puff pastry was one of the first things I cooked in a steam oven, and it’s still a go-to when I want to show people what these ovens are capable of.
Basic summary: For reheating non-frozen food, the steam oven is an excellent substitute for a microwave provided you can wait about 15 minutes for your food. The moist heat results in much better results than the drying action of the microwave.
Steam ovens are generally considered to be healthier than standard ovens. The steam helps lock moisture into whatever food is being cooked or reheated, eliminating the need for extra oils and fats to keep food moist. No more getting trapped in the kitchen basting that turkey to keep it from drying out!
