Healthy eating is full steam ahead with luxurious oven

- July 4th, 2011

Wow, steam cooking sure has come a long way since the advent of the now-primitive bamboo steamer.

Introducing the Thermador Steam and Convection Oven.

Unfortunately, at roughly $4,000, this steaming hunk of kitchen machinery isn’t quite in my budget.

But hey, nobody ever said good nutrition was cheap!

Read the following press release for all the nitty-gritty:

image002To be in tip-top shape, healthy eating is not just about choosing the right food to eat but also how you prepare it. Steam cooking is one of the healthiest, most nutritious methods to prepare a healthy meal. When you cook in a steam oven the food never comes into contact with the water, so vital nutrients are not lost in the cooking process. Vegetables cooked with a food steamer keep most of their flavonoids and vitamin content, so other than eating them raw, steaming vegetables is the next best way of cooking them.

Preparing nutritious meals and maintaining your healthy lifestyle is now hotter, faster and better with the latest innovation from Thermador — the Steam and Convection Oven. The revolutionary oven is the luxury-appliance industry’s first pre-programmed appliance to combine three distinct cooking options — steam, true convection and a combination of the two. Cooks can shine in the kitchen impressing family and friends while realizing restaurant-caliber results in food taste, appearance, texture and crispness. Steamed food stays moist on the inside and perfectly finished on the outside, and multiple dishes can be cooked at the same time without the risk of flavour transfer or the need for temperature or time adjustment.

The oven’s 1.4-cubic-foot capacity is large enough for a 14-pound turkey, which takes only 90 minutes to cook in combination mode and results in a succulent, moist inside and a perfect crust outside. The steam and convection oven also cooks risotto to perfection without stirring and can steam fish, keeping it moist without unnecessary oils. In fact, steam cooking can eliminate the need for cooking with butter or fat at all, preserving many of the vitamins, minerals, nutrients and micronutrients typically lost through traditional cooking methods — resulting in a tastier and healthier meal.

The Thermador Steam and Convection Oven (MSRP range of $3,899 to $3,999) comes equipped with 40 automatic food programs, nine advanced cooking modes and a series of advanced features that are geared toward the true cooking enthusiast.
