What is a Steam Oven and how do they work?
Chinese cooking has used steam for hundreds of years, as has African cooking, and has long been a method for both preparing food, eliminating dietary fats, acids and toxins and improving ingredient freshness. Why do you need one? Firstly, cooking with steam is a well-known superior option for health, cutting down on oil-heavy frying methods, nutrient-leaching boiling and longer, dryer baking times. Steam is also increasingly being used as a way to seal in the flavour of meals, as well as nutrients. Vegetables are sweeter and more colourful, meat is tender and succulent. More recently, steam has been integrated into more traditional meat cooking methods. This has been found to significantly reduce the ‘drying out’ that so often occurs with the cooking of meat dishes, making for choice cuts, every time. Not to mention that steam oven technology might finally be the key to freeing ourselves from that rice cooker or bamboo steamer that’s followed us from house to house for over a decade. Now NEFF has helped to equip modern kitchens with the next evolution of steam technology. The integration of steam into NEFF oven systems makes them well equipped to deliver high-quality and consistent results, from fish and vegetables, all the way to cake and cuts of meat. NEFF Fullsteam (100% Steam) Ovens NEFF Fullsteam technology allows the cooking of food with 100% pure steam, cooking fish, vegetables, rice, couscous and even individually portioned cheesecakes to perfection.
