It also has tons of preset programs that automatically set the oven temperature and humidity for things you cook often.For example- one of the things I use it for all the time is hard-boiling eggs (I know, of all things).Now that I’ve had it for more than a year, I feel like I can actually write about it and answer those questions. Watch this: When I was picking out my appliances at Orson Gygi, one of the things I was really interested in was the Thermador steam oven.I went back and forth on whether I was going to get one, and I’m so glad I went for it.) Mine looks like this: The way it works is that there’s a little pitcher that you fill with regular water, and pop it in the slot.
I also especially love it for things like brown rice and quinoa.The steam cooks the softest, most fluffy grains I’ve ever had in my life- no exaggeration.The oven can function not only as a steam oven, but as a normal convection oven and also a steam/convection combo.One of the cool things about having the steam is that it prevents the transfer of flavors so you can cook things like apple pie and garlic chicken at the same time and the flavors don’t mix.It’s smaller than a standard oven, but larger than a microwave.
You can fit quite a bit of food in there- even a 14lb turkey (that cooks in 90 minutes!
