  • Steam ovens
    Steam ovens Not only do foods cooked in hot steam taste especially tender and juicy - they're also healthier. The flavours, vitamins and minerals are retained. At the same time, the innovative combination of steam and hot air means that it's easy to prepare roasts that are juicy inside and crisp outside. Soufflés succeed without any effort, as do bread and biscuits. And: You can cook on three levels at the same time without the cooking smells from the various dishes mixing. Another plus point: Because Bosch steam ovens have integrated water tanks, they don't need to be directly connected to the water supply.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Spectacular Steam Convection OvenI bought this last month and invited friends to dinner trying out the oven for the first time. It's so easy to use and the food turned out increditably tender on my chicken and scallops on wintermelon. Everyone says the food was so tasty (for my first time to use the oven and recipe!). I bought this as it is much more healthier to eat more steamed food and vegetables as we get older and older.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Purchase!I bought all Bosch appliances for my new home and this was the highlight of my kitchen. My first meal was a baked chicken and it was absolutely wonderful. I was surprised how clean the oven was afterwards and the minimal residue was easily wiped out with a sponge. You cannot go wrong with this oven. It is definitely worthwhile to review the literature with the oven and watch a few of the videos.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Some quirkiness with descalingI love the way this oven cooks. I have had consistently good luck experimenting with recipes. But there is some quirkiness with the descale cycle. The oven immediately requested descaling after installation which didn't seem right. In the middle of the descale cycle, you have to change to water, but you only have 30 seconds to do so. If you aren't quick enough, you have to repeat the descaling process.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not your average oven!We bought this oven as part of our new build. We had heard steam ovens are great for retaining the nutrients of food and wanted to try it. It took a while to get the cooking correct, time and temperatures needed can be much different. Through trial and error, we are on good footing now. It looks so good with our built in microwave.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good and not so goodIt steams well, but I haven't had much luck with the steam/convection combo. For some reason it stops and resets when it's in this mode. Have had a service person check it out, but they say it's ok.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Special features for our new kitchen!This was a tough decision, but I am so glad we decided on this steam oven, over a microwave or a speed oven. We subscribe to a CSA and having the steam oven makes it easier for us to steam all the great veggies, keeping their color and nutrients in tact! It also makes perfect soft or hard "boiled' eggs, and comes in handy when you need an extra oven to fit in another tray of cookies, reheat, or keep other dishes warm. Reheating pasta is amazing, it is almost better than when it first came out of the pot! The oven heats up super fast too and it is really cool to turn the light on and see the steam in action! Cleaning/or drying it after steaming is more labor intensive then expected but having all of these features is well worth it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This steam oven has real problemsI purchased this steam about 2 years ago, we have had the repair technicians out more than a dozen times and Bosch has replaced it once and it is still not working correctly. There is a design flaw that allows steam to get to the control board and after some time with it exposed to steam it starts behaving erratically (turning off when it wants to, changing from steam convect to defrost .....). I have asked Bosch again to replace or refund on this and still waiting for the "supervisor" to review. To be fair to steam ovens I LOVE cooking with steam but not with this oven.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great ovenI use the convection part of this oven all the time to cook for just the two of us. Being small it heats up in no time and cooks super quick. The steam part is great on vegetables and left overs and so much healthier than the microwave I do wish that the door opened to the side - it would be much easier to get things in and out and to clean.
