It's much more convenient than I thought, and it has a wide range of uses. Now basically I'm only starting to use one function ( Steam). Very easy to clean. I'm using steam corn, fish and green vegetables. Sometimes put four things in at the same time. steam rice,veg,fish and soup .
We bought this because we wanted to start baking bread and our oven just wasn't up to the task. We grew tired of spraying a mist of water and placing a pan of water at the bottom of the oven. We checked out all the counter top combi ovens (ovens that used steam) and based on the reviews stopped at this one. It's not a cheap toaster oven and it's not cheap as well but it does perform. The unit came packed very well for protection and was delivered on time. It sits nicely under the upper cabinets without issue the unit weighs in at 63lbs like I said it's not a cheap toaster oven. It came with instructions and f.blumlein has an online cookbook. This proofs the dough as well as bakes it, it makes things pretty simple and the results are great. Being the unit cost $499.99 we purchase the 3 year plan we felt it was good protection. I recommend the purchase of the unit if your looking to make your own bread or for that matter any meal. PS: Don't let the name fool you it's not from Germany it's from China. I'm guessing built from German specs?
I just cooked a whole chicken. It was the best tasting, moist chicken I have ever had. I am in the process of cooking 5 sweet potatoes in A-09 mode and should be completed in 45 minutes at 210 degrees. Hard to imagine this oven do so many things including a steamer. This is an awesome oven.
This is no ordinary toaster oven. The options are fantastic. The oven is taller than toaster ovens so make sure you have some room where you are putting it. It is also heavy. I recommend wearing gloves to lift it due to sharp edges on the bottom. Once you are ready to use be aware everything is digital and is not that self-explanatory although techie types can usually figure it out without the manual. The manual is good and has all you need to get started. The buttons are touch sensitive. The settings are quite detailed so read the manual thoroughly. There is a recipe book on the manufacturer’s website. It’s not in the box with the product. It’s downloadable into PDF format. The only thing I do not understand is the drip pant that's under the bottom of the machine. It snaps on fine, but the inside of the oven is completely enclosed. I do not see anywhere for anything to drip into the pan or anywhere toast crumbs can go. Instructions don't elaborate on how that part works. I love that this has a light inside. Also, you can do layered cooking with multiple trays. It has a nice long beeping alarm in case I'm not in the room when it first goes off. I'd say a good 10 seconds maybe. It auto-shuts off and tells you it's too hot to touch. It can still be warm an hour after turnoff, so it has great insulation. If you open the door during cooking the oven turns off and comes back on when you close the door. You can see the upper heating elements, but the manual says there are bottom ones as well, but I don't see any actual elements in the bottom so not sure how that works. I recommend reading the manual before buying the product to make sure this is what you are looking for. All pans come out and fit into the dishwasher. You can even lower the heating element so you can wipe that off too if needed. I recommend cleaning the inside after every use so that grease doesn’t build up in it. It also recommends descaling like you would a coffee maker. The manual tells you exactly how to do it and how much to use. It doesn’t specify any specific brand of de-scaler. It is very important to read the Cleaning Tips on page 26 of the manual before use.
Packed nice but no recipes book? Have to guess how to use it! No where near as quick as a microwave! Was dissatisfied because I wanted to get rid of microwave!
