"Our latest ovens are engineered to deliver precise results and offer a range of cooking modes from steam cooking to proofing," notes Juliet Johnson. "Aesthetically, they're designed to seamlessly integrate into a variety of contemporary kitchen layouts." 

In addition to a steam only mode, a steam plus convection setting multitasks to both crisp and maintain moisture in dishes from poultry to pastries. A powerful 1200 watt convection heating element evenly circulates heated air to ensure consistent baking results and speed up cooking times. Another time-saver, the oven's No Preheat option, eliminates the need to wait to begin the cooking process.

When steam is not required a Convection Bake mode provides the drier, even heat that benefits such dishes as cakes, souffles and roasted meats. Additional cooking modes include a Preset Foods setting that makes adjustments based on the selected food category; a Manual mode that enables the selection of a preferred setting; and a Steam Reheat mode that evenly warms foods without drying them out.  

Specialty cooking and preparation modes include a Proofing mode that shortens proofing times for homemade breads and other yeast dough recipes; a Steam Defrost mode that incorporates steam for gentle, consistent defrosting of foods without hotspots; a Sous Vide Reheat mode that provides the steady, low temperatures required to reheat frozen sous-vide food to desired serving temperature; and a Yogurt mode that makes it more convenient to make homemade yogurt by providing the proper temperature for culturing the milk. 

Other convenient features include a Recently-Used option that automatically compiles a list of 10 of the most recently used functions so they can be quickly accessed. For easy maintenance a Steam Cleaning option makes it easy to wipe down the oven's stainless steel interior. All models include a roasting rack, baking/drip tray, steam tray, and a temperature probe to help ensure that recipes are cooked to desired temperatures and doneness. With a 1.3 Cu. Ft. capacity and easily accessible 1.5 liter water container, the oven can accommodate everything from side dishes to entrees.  

Available in Euro-Style stainless with an elegantly curved stainless steel handle, the steam ovens include trim kits for seamless installation with a Jenn-Air® 27" or 30" wall oven.
