Steam ovens are exactly what they sound like: ovens that cook food with hot steam rather than hot air. They bring a whole new level of cooking to your kitchen and can even reheat food more effectively than microwaves, making them a fantastic double whammy for your house. A steam oven may be used in place of a regular convection oven, or it can be combined with your current oven to provide even greater range and cooking power.
So, what’s the big deal about them? For starters, almost anything that can be cooked in a standard oven can be cooked better in a oven. Steam ovens are typically thought to be healthier than conventional ovens. The steam helps to trap moisture into the meal being cooked or reheated, removing the need for additional oils and fats to keep the food wet.
