I have not used the steam function and don't know if I ever will. It is too much of a faff. I don't like the count up clock function either when it is in use, and it cannot be turned off. Why not just leave the clock as the default? I bought the oven because it had the largest capacity for a single oven. I hope that it will be a reliable and last a long time.
A self-cleaning oven
With one touch of the Pyrolytic cleaning function, dirt, grease and food residue in the oven is converted into ash that you can easily wipe off with a damp cloth.
