Siemens steam ovens
“Cook with steam, bake and roast with hot air, or do both with Siemens steam ovens. The innovative combination of steam and hot air makes them ideal for not only meat, fish and vegetables, but also for bread, cake and roasts.
Siemens steam ovens are the healthy alternative to conventional ovens. Cooking with hot steam helps food retain its flavours, vitamins, minerals and appearance as no oil or fat is needed. As the water evaporates off the surface, the food gets crispy on the outside while staying juicy on the inside.
“These combi-ovens are also very practical, because if you don’t have much time but still want to eat well, Siemens steam ovens make it easy to warm up pre-prepared food. Vegetables warm up quickly with steam, while staying crispy and delicious.” – Ashveer Jaganath, marketing communication manager at Siemens
