Five Cooking Modes For Ultimate Control
This combination steam oven really gives the most amazing results and it’s all thanks to the intelligent cooking modes you can select to help you produce exactly the results you need in each different scenario.
The named modes are “Moist Heat”, “Dry Heat”, “Comb-Steam”, “Vario-Steam”, and “Finishing Mode”. They each function in different ways and suit different outcomes depending on your needs at any particular time.
The “Moist Heat” mode, as you can probably already guess, is used for conventional steam cooking. You can steam all kinds of foods with this method, which means anything from salapao to Christmas puddings.
In this cooking mode, the temperature is always 100° C, and the only thing that changes is the amount of steam in the oven interior. That’s where the smartness of the combi steam oven comes into play.
Sensors detect the humidity levels and either increase or decrease the steam output to make sure the food has enough steam to make it moist, but not so much that it becomes soggy. Next we have the “Dry Heat” mode, which is just like traditional convection oven cooking. Dry air is forced through the oven by a powerful fan that ensures excellent air circulation. This method produces much better results than radiant heat cooking. This mode can provide temperatures ranging from 30° C to 300° C.
The “Combi-Steam” mode, which is what the oven is most famous for, uses a combination of steam and convection cooking to make it possible to steam foods at much higher than normal temperatures. Whereas conventional steaming is limited to 100° C, with Combi-Steam you can achieve temperatures between 100° C and 300° C.
Then there is the “Vario-Steam” mode. It’s used to keep cooked food warm, and offers a temperature range between 30° C and 99° C.
“Finishing Mode” is an amazingly useful mode that helps you round off the cooking result to ensure the final product is exactly the way you want it to be. It calculates how much steam or air to use for turning out food that is not too moist or too dry.
