Steam may seem like a New Age method of cooking, but, in fact, it is an ancient cooking technique that is only getting better with time. While steam ovens have not been around for centuries, cooking with steam dates back to Ancient China, where cooks used the steam from hot water in woks to evenly cook meats and vegetables. “Sous vide” refers to the French cooking method in which hot water and steam are used to evenly cook food at a precise temperature. Bring this ever-advancing cooking technique into your kitchen with the hottest, high-tech convection steam ovens on the market.
The Science of Steam
Many of the newest steam ovens combine convection with steam to deliver the healthiest and most flavorful cooking results. While some models have a removable reservoir that needs to be refilled manually, many high-end models can be connected to a waterline. With the rise in popularity steam ovens have seen lately, there are more options at lower prices than ever before.
One of the best features that steam ovens offer is their ability to revive leftovers. If you’re someone who finds yourself packing plastic containers into your refrigerator only to throw out those leftovers a few days later, a convection steam oven would be the perfect addition to your kitchen. Recooking leftovers in your steam oven restores lost moisture to your food, making it taste just as fresh and delicious as when you first prepared the dish.
Cooking at home is almost always a healthier option than eating at a restaurant or ordering take-out. Cooking with a convection steam oven, however, is the healthiest possible cooking method for you and your family. Food that is cooked with steam retains more nutrients than other forms of cooking.
If you’ve ever cleaned a traditional convection oven, you know the hard work that it can require. Convection steam ovens are easier to clean because the steam from the oven itself helps to lift food residue from the oven walls and its surface. After cooking, you should be able to readily wipe down the oven, allowing it to look as good as new for years to come.
