What is a Steam Oven?
A steam oven is an oven that uses hot steam rather than hot air to cook food. This introduces a whole new level of cooking, and can even reheat things more effectively than microwaves, making them a great addition to your kitchen.
The main operation of how a steam oven works is by siphoning water from a small water tank into a built-in boiler, heating it to 212° Fahrenheit, and releasing the steam into the oven. The one possible downside to steam ovens is that, because water boils at 212°F, you won't be able to easily cook foods that require being cooked at higher temperatures than that. Because of this temperature limit, steam ovens usually work best as a complement to standard convection ovens. However, a combi-steam unit can cook using both steam and convection, depending on the dish’s needs, allowing you to cook an abundance of dishes. At The Range Hood Store, we offer both standard steam ovens and combi-steam ovens, be sure to check out the different options!

Why get a Steam Oven?
The biggest takeaway you can get from using a steam oven is that it can cook like a traditional oven, but it can cook better with the use of steam.
Steam ovens tend to produce healthier foods than a standard oven, due to the steam trapping moisture into whatever food is being cooked or reheated, eliminating the need for extra oils and fats to keep food moist. It also helps the food retain its natural vitamins and minerals, so you get the most nutritional value! The delectable flavor of the food that comes out of a steam oven is well worth the price!
