Steam Oven

As stated above, using steam, it will cut down on your cooking time by about 40%. It will run up to 120 minutes.

So you will be able to poach or steam things like vegetables, poultry, fish or rice. With the rice, it can steam the rice, making it fluffy in about 25 minutes.

Steaming allows you to proof the breads and donuts more quickly. Streaming is something a baker showed me when I used to teach bread making classes. It gives you the kind of results you would expect from a bakery.

Bake And Broil Function

You can also bake or broil using this oven. So it is good for all your standard cooking that you might want to do.

You could use steam in combination with your baking, to create both browned but juicy roasts and meats.

Toaster Oven

You will be able to choose one of 7 shades for how dark you want things toasted.
