    Steam cooking


    Whether you're trying to stay healthy or have a bake off to win, an oven with steam cooking will take your creations to the next level. The hot vapour surrounds your ingredients, gently heating them from every angle. This leaves each dish packed with flavour and looking just like those pictures in the recipe book. It’s a fool-proof way to cook like a pro.


    A healthy option

    Want to get the most out of your food? Cooking with steam means there’s no need to add moisture using extra fats or oil. And since there’s less chance of overcooking, all those healthy nutrients get locked in. It’s a double win for healthier mealtimes.

    Packed with flavour

    Let’s be honest, no one’s a fan of bland veg. Steam cooking makes that a problem of the past. It’s gentle on your ingredients, so everything from your broccoli to your squash will have irresistible texture and flavour. It’ll be so delicious even the kids can’t turn their noses up.

    Perfect for bakers

    Trying your hand at a new ciabatta recipe? With this feature, the hot steam cooks the dough from every angle, leaving your loaves with a fluffy middle, crunchy crust and perfect rise. You’ll get the same amazing results with cakes too – time to don your chef whites and get baking.
