Steam…the chef’s secret

Great chefs, like great magicians, have always had their little secrets that make an ordinary meal magical. Küppersbusch, one of the world’s largest and oldest manufacturer of commercial restaurant equipment (as well as other manufacturers), now makes one of those little secrets available to the homeowner. The secret to a great meal is the right amount of dry heat with just the right mixture of moisture, and with the Integrated Steam Oven, their secret is now yours.

steamFor centuries, the ancient Chinese used reed or bamboo baskets to steam cook their meals. They understood the power of steam to keep food crisp, while at the same time releasing the natural flavor without losing nutrients. Just as you would find in any fine restaurant, the residential Integrated Steam Oven allows you to cook meat and vegetables without losing moisture, nutrients and flavor.

The built-in steam oven combines the advantages of a steam oven and a convection oven in a single appliance. This ingenious dual-function oven combines the dry heat of a convection oven with non-pressurized steam in just the right calculated balance. Combining hot air and steam injection allows for all kinds of cooking opportunities, ranging from defrosting to steaming to baking to browning, from the perfect roast to the flakiest pie crust to crisp vegetables.

The steam oven offers a host of benefits, including faster cooking times as well as optimum retention of vitamins, nutrients, flavor, color and texture. With steam cooking, food absorbs only the moisture it requires, which means never overcooking. Food prepared in the steam oven will prove to be healthier for you as you will not need to add oils or fats to keep it from drying out in the cooking process.


The residential Integrated Steam Oven is perfect for anyone who has a healthy attitude toward cooking and is design-conscious.

Integrated Steam Ovens are manufactured by Gaggenau, Miele and Küppersbusch (shown).
