I heard about steam convection ovens about 5 years ago. My wife Karen and I were contemplating a major kitchen remodel and while perusing a kitchen design store discovered the Gaggenau Steam Oven. At the time it was the only option. I was very intrigued by the concept and what it could do.
Fast forward to today and we are just finishing the kitchen remodel. In the intervening years a few other manufacturers have released new steam oven or steam convection oven models. After visiting a local kitchen store, a lot of on-line research, a lot of time reading on-line forums, and talking to a few people, I decided to purchase the Wolf Steam Convection oven for the new kitchen.
I realized in the process of researching there just was not very much independent information available on-line about how to decide if this type of oven is right for you and how to use them.
So I had the idea to start this site to help others with their decision process and to create a platform where tested recipes can be shared.
I will be chronicling my experience using my oven and posting recipes I have tested. My hope is that others like you will join this community and add your thoughts, insights, comments, what worked well and what’s not working so that we can all learn.
As I write this article my remodel is not quite done (we hope to be finished by the end of next week). Once I get my full kitchen back I will be actively working on experimenting, testing and posting my experiences for all to comment on and hopefully learn from.
I hope you will join me in this adventure!
