Why a steam oven?
A steam oven does everything your current oven does, but helps you to take your cooking to the next level. Your oven at home surrounds food with dry heat. Steam ovens add steam to the process. This extra moisture improves flavour, texture and colour while preserving crispiness - turning every meal into a masterpiece. But don't just take our word for it... View all our steam ovens.
The science behind better baking
Good baking is an art. Great baking is a science. To create a masterpiece, adding steam is as important as each stroke of your pastry brush. This is because water molecules conduct heat faster than hot air, so cook more thoroughly. With just a touch of a button, our SteamBake oven adds a perfect amount of steam to your baking in three simple steps. This leads to bigger, quicker rises and caramelisation for thicker crusts.
Three steps to better baking with SteamBake
Pour 100ml of water into the cavity at the bottom of the oven.
Select the SteamBake programme and press the Steam button.
Let the oven preheat for 5 minutes and then enjoy your delicious bake.
