True artisan baking is now possible
I must say that I really didn't need this steam oven as a replacement or as an addition to my rather long list of kitchen appliances. I was looking for something that would allow me to bake without the usual hacks. For many years, my basic setup for artisan bread was a simple dutch oven, and I was getting great results, or at least that's what I thought until tried the F.BLUMLEIN Countertop Steam Oven 26 Qt. I can honestly say that there was a definite improvement on the first boule I baked, including flavor. Everything from the blistering crust, to the ear and the belly, was a welcoming visual. And speaking of visuals, it sure is nice to see the bread as it bakes. I really love the proofing function. Reheating with the combi setting makes everything look and taste fresh again. And if you want something dry and crispy, don't use steam. I sous vide a lot of my proteins and this steam oven puts the finishing touch on everything from egg bites to chicken and steaks. No more searing torch, oven broiler, or grill to deal with. I read many reviews and comparisons and I must say that I am very happy with my purchase. When comparing, I think It's only fair to compare steam ovens with similar features and similar prices. If you do that, you'll realize that the F.BLUMLEIN Countertop Steam Oven 26 Qt is simply the best in class. There is such a thing as user error and lack of common sen, well, I'm not going to say it but there is a lack of it sometimes, and that's what I got from some of the negative reviews. Is this steam oven for everyone? no, it is not. Is it a high-tech appliance? depends. If you want full control over your cooking and better results, then this is for you, but you'll have to press more than one button. There is a bit of confusion as far as what is combi and what isn't. Simply put, combi means heat source and steam at the same time. And by the way, convection is more effective and much needed in large ovens. Convection in small countertop ovens is really not necessary unless they only have one heating element and you cook a lot of frozen foods. And so, I can only assume that the reason F.BLUMLEIN did not add the convection feature to the 26 qt model, is simply because it's not needed.
Very good steam oven
Excellent steam oven. Exceed my expectation. You can steam fish, spare ribs, and reheat leftover food. If you get the exhaust silicone tube from the seller's website, you can place the unit under a kitchen cabinet. Good quality, the interior of the oven and baking pans are made with good quality stainless steel. My only complaint is that it does not display the actual oven temperature. For $249 including a discount, you can't beat that price. I have used this oven for more than 1 month now. So far so good. The first complaint I have is that it does not display the actual temperature of the oven. The second complaint is that if you switch from one mode to another, you need to switch off the oven and start it again. But for the price and the quality, I will still give 5-star.
It works very good
so far it is working well. would be helpful to have a comprehensive cooking chart
getting some loud noise inside the oven in steam and combi modes, hopefully it is normal
Great steam. only thing is that the bottom seems easy to get rusted, but it can be lift up to clean up, so that won't be a big problem.
