Your oven bakes. Perhaps it convection bakes, too. But now ovens do more: they steam. That’s right: Now steam ovens are the new thing, and they’re hot in more ways than one. Most offer the traditional baking option (and sometimes convection, as well) along with steam, but the steaming function is the star of the show. It’s a healthy way to cook because it keeps more moisture in with less butter and oil, and it offers a lot of flexibility for cooks. If you’re looking for a splurge to really heat up your cooking, steam ovens are gaining quickly in popularity and availability.
Steam ovens cook food much faster than conventional ovens do and help food retain its nutrients and flavor. This Wolf oven combines steam and convection modes with a series of pre-set programmed recipes so that all you have to do is put the food in — the oven does the work of figuring out which modes to apply to get the best results. You can even tell the oven what time you want your dish to be ready, and it will turn on and adjust the cooking process as necessary to finish at exactly the right moment.
French door wall ovens are stylish, but they’re also a great choice in limited spaces because you don’t have to allow room for a conventional door to fold down in front. This new GE Monogram® model is equipped with Bluetooth so that you can control oven functions remotely with your smartphone — say, if you want to preheat while you’re hung up in traffic so that dinner still hits the table on time.
