PRINCETON, N.J., April 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- As the pioneer in steam oven technology, Miele, a leading German appliance manufacturer, has perfected the art of steam cooking. Building on that expertise, Miele introduces its new Combi-Steam Oven. As its name implies, this latest oven innovation combines the power of steam and convection technology into one appliance.
"The Combi-Steam Oven is the perfect partnering of Miele oven technology," said Kathrin Pfeifer, Product Manager for Miele. "We've combined true European convection technology with our unique external steam generator to create an all-in-one-oven that provides the consummate cooking fusion."
The combination mode allows you to regulate both the cooking method and temperature, but also the moisture level. By introducing moisture into the cooking process, the oven creates an environment that is ideal for both browning and searing meats, as well as baking moist cakes and breads.
"Professional bread bakers utilize proof boxes because of its ability to control fermentation and rise temperatures to produce the best flavors," explained Miele Home Economist, Holly Curry. "The Combi-Steam Oven not only replicates this process, but does it in a 1/3 of the time delivering artisan quality breads and pastries."
Ease of Use
There are more than 100 automated programs for meats, vegetables and grains included in the oven's food-driven menu system. Step-by-step instructions guide you through the cooking process allowing you to program the temperature, time and cooking method. The Combi-Steam Oven is also equipped with five Miele MasterChef Gourmet programs.
The design marvels of the Combi-Steam Oven include its CleanGlass Door and its award winning lift-up control panel. Strategically hidden behind the panel are the water and condensate containers. A simple touch of a button automatically lifts the control panel providing easy access to replenish the water reservoir without having to open the oven door and interrupt the cooking process. Compared to the Miele Steam Oven, the new placement of the water reservoir also increases the oven's interior capacity by 40%, providing ample space for multiple dishes or large roasts to be cooked simultaneously.
The Miele Combi-Steam Oven (DGC 4084/4086 XL) retails for $3,695. To learn more, visit www.mielepressroom.com
