Get hot and steamy in the kitchen
New Electrolux Compact Steam Ovens use steam to preserve textures, flavours and vitamins
Top chefs using Electrolux Professional cooking appliances have long combined hot air and steam to create food that’s both crisp and golden, while retaining taste and flavour. Tetsuya Wakuda, world renowned chef and Electrolux cooking ambassador, regularly uses steam to create the pure, clean flavours he is famous for.
Now consumers can emulate those professional results at home with the Electrolux Compact Steam Oven.
“Steam cooking is becoming a popular trend in the kitchen with the promise of convenience, great results, health advantages and the flexibility it offers modern homes,” said John Brown, Electrolux Managing Director Australia and New Zealand.
“Steam cooking enhances the natural taste of fresh produce because the juices that are the source of the flavour are not lost in the cooking process,” continued Brown.
The Electrolux Compact Steam Oven combines steam, heat and grill functions to bring out the best in food. The combination of these functions helps keep food beautifully browned and moist without added fat, all the while preserving flavours, vitamins and minerals.
The oven’s food probe makes it easy to know when food is cooked without having to cut into it. A sound alert can even be activated to let you know when your food is ready.
The Electrolux Compact Steam Oven includes pre-programmed settings for cooking common dishes. All you have to do is tell the oven what you are cooking and how much it weighs. The oven calculates the correct temperature, amount of steam and cooking time for you.
The appliance has 13 cooking functions for normal cooking, wet steam and hot air, plus steam for preparing a variety of different foods. Since the Electrolux Compact Steam Oven enables interval cooking, you can combine steam and hot air in two different settings for a tender inside and an appetising finish.
Cook different dishes simultaneously
In addition to being a healthier option, the steam function also allows you to prepare an entire menu from appetisers to dessert, with different dishes side by side being cooked at the same time, making it easier when you’re entertaining.
The process allows you to cook dishes with different cooking times together, because as soon as the food is saturated with steam it is cooked and it stays ‘on hold’ while the rest of the food is cooked.
There is a special low temperature program like the ones professionals use to get tender and succulent meat. In addition, up to ten customised recipe programs can be stored in the oven’s electronic memory.
Steam is also optimal for reheating cold or frozen meals.
The steam oven is also a safe and easy-to-clean device. Steam helps loosen grime, making it possible to effortlessly wipe it off.
