This sleek looking oven is a Wolf steam oven. Steam Oven cooking has benefits over a traditional hot air method of cooking by allowing the flavor, texture and color of foods to be retained during the cooking process. This is done when the oven boils water inside a reservoir to make a cloud of steam to cook food with moisture. More vitamins and minerals remain in the foods, thus maintaining the quality and nutritional value of many of the foods that you cook. Foods do not dry out as much as with the hot air method. These ovens are best used for foods such as veggies, pasta, fish and other meats, breads and desserts.
