The oven seems to be well made. It is quiet. Heats up quickly. Has many functions. The down side for me is understanding the controls. I have yet been able to access the pre sets. I am old. I don’t understand many of the symbols used to control the functions. What is that finger pointing up? I am used to turning on my oven and setting the temp and cooking. The steam function is great. I have managed to make some great breads and other items. I think it needs a simpler control panel or a better explanation of what the functions are. As I work with it more, I am hoping I will better understand all of the functions.
Functionally of the steam oven.
Like the different cooking modes, especially the steam function.
So many functions! So many new dishes to try out with this baby! Already steamed fish, baked moon cakes and toasted some bagels! My favorite appliance in the kitchen!!!
Completes My Typical Kitchen
I bought the open box option in June 2022 for $384.11 (plus tax). I didn't expect the packaging to be an F. Blumlein box inside another beat up F. Blumlein box. And there were some aesthetic issues (most open box items are probably free of aesthetic issues?). Yet after 3 months of using my oven, I realize that I got a 30% discount ($150) for an oven that works just as well as an unopened box oven. For $384, I don't know of any other options that provide as many features: 1. Steam (210F), 2. High steam (210-450F), 3. Grill (210-450F, no steam, no fan, like regular conventional oven), 4. Convection (210-450F, using rear fan, no steam... bigger wall convection ovens cost more than $1000) 5. Combi (210-450F, using rear fan, using steam... usually only restaurants have these, Anova Precision Oven is $599 and uglier in my opinion) 6. Defrost (130F, using steam, no fan... I've used this to reheat sous vide steak to preserve the medium rare) 7. And more... What it doesn't have: 1. The ability to adjust temperature finer than 10 degrees F 2. The ability to sousvide cook at a low temp, with 1 degree F precision, with steam (Anova Precision Oven) 3. The capacity to cook really large dishes like a turkey (it can fit a whole chicken) I'm ok with this because I think most baking doesn't require finer than 10 degrees F, I already have an Anova Sous Vide Precision Cooker and a vacuum bag sealer, and I already have a regular wall conventional oven for large bakes and a Pit Barrel Cooker for smoking turkey. If you have enough space on your counter (the oven is much bigger than a toaster, you'll need to measure) and want more cooking options besides the typical stovetop and conventional oven, this oven just might complete your kitchen too.
Steam combined with convection oven works great! Greatest customer service representative ever
It looks great and work like pro. Easy to program steam, grill and convection oven together and save it to 10 of DIY program. Steam a Chilean sea brass (1-1/4lb) in 25 minutes. It came out delicious and juice. When I needed to steam more than 5 hours, It will warn you when water need to refill, after put back the reservoir and closed the door, It will continue cooking.
