 A combi steam oven is a 3 in 1 oven that allows you to cook with steam, convection or a combination of both! Most of such combi steam ovens also come with a water canister and the heat from the oven turns the water inside it into steam. This is how food is cooked quickly in the combi steam oven!  

The main benefit of using such an oven is cooking with steam! Steam penetrates deeper into food, removing excess fat and salt while locking in more of the beneficial nutrients your body thrives on. You can also expect the natural colours and textures of your food to be retained as well. 

 These ovens are ideal options for people who love to cook healthy every day as well as experiment with a variety of cooking modes. The Hafele combi steam ovens allow you to do full microwave and steam cooking, convection based baking, infrared grilling and much more!

 A regular conventional oven has two heating elements that heat air inside the oven to cook food. The heating element at the bottom of the oven is used for most cooking and baking, while the heating element at the top is mostly used for broiling. Some ovens also come with an extra heating element and a fan inside to give you the power of convection cooking.  

Steam ovens, on the other hand, use steam as its main mode of cooking along with convection to cook food at its fastest speed! This is because steam ovens use a manual reservoir to convert water into steam and cook your food faster. This is not only the healthiest form of cooking, but it is also a great choice if you are looking to add speed and perfection while cooking delicious meals in the kitchen.
