How Steam Ovens Work

Steam ovens work by extracting water from a reservoir based either in the front or interior of the oven and transferring it to a boiler. This creates steam which is released into the oven and circulated, cooking your food far more efficiently than conventional methods.

Steam ovens also optimise the health, integrity, and flavour of your food. Here’s how they work.

Steam ovens can also be used for a multitude of functions. Doughs proof in half the normal time, proteins defrost in a jiffy, baby bottles and jars can be sterilised. As temperatures can be set in single increments, you can even sous-vide, Masterchef-style.

Gaggenau Steam Oven Review

The Gaggenau 400 series offers six stunning 24 inches or 30 inches handcrafted, luxury combi-steam ovens to choose from. Each one features fixed inlet and outlet connections, home network integration and an automatic door opening system with a choice of left or right hinging.

Their smart interior design elements incorporate a larger than usual cavity, a full surface grill hidden elegantly behind glass, a non-reflective rear wall and subtle LED lighting to illuminate your cooking.

Gaggenau also offers some unique automated cleaning functions that are well worth the spend. These include a descaling and drying program, a grease filter positioned in front of the convection fan and a clever steam condensing system that stops steam from engulfing you when you open the door. All of these are designed to ensure that your steam oven looks forever new.

Other noteworthy features:

Gaggenau ovens can handle a wide range of cooking methods including dough proofing, regenerating, defrosting, baking, grilling, braising, browning, sous-viding and gratinating. Every option a budding chef could wish for.

Gaggenau is the cream of the crop, but If you’re looking for a more budget-friendly option, Miele, Bosch and Neff all make great quality steam ovens.
