An increasing emphasis on healthy eating has led to the introduction of new cooking techniques, such as steam cooking. The appeal of steam lies above all in the healthy approach to cooking it offers, enhancing flavours whilst maintaining nutritional benefits. These ovens also reduce wasted energy.
Models with a Smart Steam function, deliver impeccable results by adding steam to traditional cooking methods. The oven is simple and intuitive to use, thanks to the TFT Touch colour display: with a single touch, the user can choose from one of 5 steam cooking functions and one of 3 levels of steam generation. The oven automatically calculates the exact amount of water required to cook the preset recipe. The steam is delivered directly into the oven cavity and evenly distributed by the ventilation system, for superb cooking results with any dish, from meat to bread. In addition, the innovative and advanced Smart Cooking system provides automatic cooking programmes and customisable recipes.
Compact ovens offer combination steam via a special water reservoir filled via the Fill&Hide tube. As well as combining the various cooking systems, the Smeg combination steam ovens also enable either traditional or steam cooking methods to be used alone, for maximum versatility in the kitchen.
