convention stream ovem? advantages?

miatadanDecember 6, 2013

What is the advantage of convention stream oven? I know it the past ovens that combine microwave + convention allows quicker cooking without disadvantage of microwave only cooking such as GE's Advantium ovens.

So what does the stream function add that helps with oven cooking?

Sorry if I sound stupid asking this?

It also allows for quicker cooking. The steam decreases the amount of time it takes to cook things as well.

They are also smaller in size than a full size oven and will heat up faster, saving time and money.

They will never replace a microwave like a speed oven, as they don't have that capability. But they can replace a microwave if you are willing to spend the extra time waiting for things to reheat in them.

I have a Wolf Steam Oven and we use it in place of our MW about 75% of the time. Could we switch over completely, yes, but I don't think I would ever give up or MW for day to day use.

You can also cook multiple items in a steam oven at the same time. Meaning you can steam veggies, and fish, while cooking a roast or reheating last night dinner and the flavors won't combine.

but would the flavors travel when the oven goes from steam to convection function?
