Steam oven owners - is this your second oven?

Posted by Kitten1313 (My Page) on

Just curious if the steam oven is your second oven, or if it is in addition to double ovens, either on a range or wall. I was thinking I'd get a 48 in range with the 2 ovens, but I think I want a steam oven. I'm sure I don't need 3 ovens (my husband questions if I need two, but that's another story...)

My gagg combi is my go-to primary oven...and is in the wall on it's own. Because the trim kit at the time would only bring it to a facade of 27", I didn't want my other wall oven to only be 27", so it flies solo flanked by cabinets (for cookie sheet storage) above, and a drawer and pull-outs below. My other "oven" is a 36" wolf df range. This combo has served me well.

I have a 48" wolf df range and my combi. Nice at times but not necessary at all. I rarely use th smaller range oven other than holidays.

Next house I would like to do 36" wolf df range and Gagg 30" wall oven paired with combi. Probably still too much....

I would probably be just fine with the 36" df range and the combi as well.

I have my 27 in. combi oven stacked above my 27 in. convection oven. Both of these are Gaggenau, and the combi is the go-to oven for heating and re-heating.

Instead of a standard microwave, I have a 24 in Miele speed oven. Because of the versatility of the speed and combi ovens, I tend to think of my kitchen as a three-oven kitchen, and I also thought to myself, "Maybe three is too many." I'm glad I decided to have all three anyway! There are times I've had them all going at once and I was very happy to have had three fantastic ovens.

RE: Steam oven owners - is this your second oven?

I have a Thermador steam oven as my second oven and use it as much as my CC range oven. I also put a cheap microwave in the pantry.

My steam oven is under the counter but I would put it higher If space permitted.
Lots of steam escapes when the oven door is opened.
