When people think of steam ovens they usually think of vegetables but steam ovens can do so much more. Steam ovens have been the secret weapon in many top restaurants for years and, once you understand what steam ovens can do, you begin to understand why. The extra moisture in a steam oven improves flavour and texture while preserving crispness – turning meals into masterpieces.
It’s often said that good baking is an art, but great baking is truly a science. To create a masterpiece worthy of Masterchef, the addition of steam during cooking plays a vital role. This SteamBake oven produces steam and, as those water molecules are able to conduct heat faster than air, foods cook more evenly and thoroughly. With just a simple touch of a button, this AEG SteamBake oven adds the right amount of steam to your baking.
Alongside the standard oven functions, pressing the PlusSteam button on this SteamBake oven will add steam from the beginning of the baking process. Pie lovers can rejoice as this ensures the dough on your favourite pies will stay moist on the surface and create a rich golden colour and delicious crust, while the centre retains all the incredible flavour and remains soft and tender. When you’re not turning out crisp-crusted, beautiful breads, moist muffins and perfect pies, you’ll find that roasted chicken, grilled spare ribs and even a huge whole-family lasagne will benefit from equally delicious and perfect cooking results.
With this AEG SteamBake oven, using energy efficiently also means cooking efficiently. It has AEG’s new convection system, called Hot Air. This ensures that hot air is evenly circulated throughout the whole oven cavity. The end result is that the oven will heat up faster and cooking temperatures are reduced by as much as 20%, saving both time and energy.
This AEG SteamBake oven allows you to cook more at the same time and still get perfect results. It’s thanks to an additional heating ring that ensures dishes are evenly cooked – even when loaded with up to three large trays. Whether you’re a fan of batch cooking or you’re making a huge family meal you can rest assured that each portion will be as perfect as the last with corner-to-corner deliciousness.
AEG’s advanced Hexagon timer display gives you absolute accuracy, every time and even more control over your cooking. You simply enter the start/stop times into the clear LCD screen, and relax as the oven automatically begins and ends as instructed.
Thanks to AEG’s Safe To The Touch top door, the outside oven door stays relatively cool to the touch, for a safer home – especially with children.
If you love cooking but hate cleaning, then this is definitely your perfect oven; the AEG BPS551020M is a self-cleaning oven! Just one touch of the Pyrolytic cleaning function and any dirt, grease and food residue in the oven is swiftly turned into ash so all you need do is wipe that off with a damp cloth.
