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.
I'm using the last model JU3200 myself, my husband also enjoys the meals made by it a lot. I was planning to buy one more as a Christmas gift to my son, but I found this model last month while its size is more compact for his new apartment. Compared with JU3200, this model has a Broil function and you can set the different temp for each heating element which is nice because various meals require various heat for either side. Also, he enjoys the delay-start function a lot, just put the left-over soup in the oven, and set the timer like 8-9 hours, he can have the hot and fresh soup once he got home after work. And I notice the website updates recipe for both models irregularly, it's kinda fun when I received a new recipe from them during the festival so I can learn for the holiday.
F Blumlein have a wonderful customer services, would get quick response from Shelly @ customer support . I got this steam oven over a month ago, so happy that F Blumlein came out with a smaller version of stem oven, it is well build, clean and compact design, small foot print just a right size to put on counter top. oven capacity is big enough. This is a more basic steam oven, the control panel is easy to use, it doesn't heat up the surrounding space as the toaster oven does. love the independently control upper and lower heating elements, good for cake and bread baking, my bread turned out moist and even browning. I used combi function to steam bake root vegetable, definitely came out moist and great texture. a good way to reheating food . Overall I am happy with this steam oven, strongly recommended.
I have been wanting a steam oven for some time. We bought a fixer-upper house, and yes, the even didn't work. Perfect time to shop for a steam oven. I was about to buy the 3200, when an email appeared announcing the 2500. I was intrigued. What was different? Slightly lower capacity, no convection feature (but it's a small space, so would I miss that?) I pulled the trigger and ordered it. Just one recipe here for the 2500, so we've been winging it. Biscuits turned out well, chicken & rice in a Corning Ware pan was a bit undercooked in parts, and I attribute that to the heavy ceramic pan needing more heat. I love being able to adjust the upper and lower elements separately, though it took a few minutes to figure that out - okay, a few days. We baked bacon in it yesterday, which yielded a lot of water on the floor of the oven. The included sponge was deployed. It was fun watching the steam rise from the chimney as the bacon cooked - but keep the back of oven away from the wall. There is a water collection tray on the front - it too was full. Pro tip: Do not even think of making it to the kitchen sink with that long skinny tray full of water. Mopped up the spilled water on the floor. Next time I'll have a bowl next to the oven where I'll dump the water from the tray. My only concern long-term is the gasket around the door. I love it, but the channels hold water, and I'm concerned about green things growing in there. I'm leaving the door cracked open in hopes the seal will dry out. It looks easy to replace, if that time comes. We haven't tried the steam function yet (see dearth of recipes, above), but look forward to trying that out one day. Pandemic Thanksgiving is just a few days off, and we'll be baking a broccoli casserole among other things for that. Glad to have the 2500 around. Now what to do with that old oven?
