Create photo worthy meals, full of flavour
The steam cooking method is a great way of keeping nutrients in your food and bringing out flavour. The Neff steam ovens incorporate steam cooking into their appliances to give your food great taste, texture and full flavour, without losing nutrients or drying out your food. It even cooks faster than it would in a regular oven. Especially useful if you are putting together larger dishes or batch cooking for the week ahead.
This is a much simpler and more effective process than steam cooking on the hob with a pan and steam attachment, simply fill the easy to access water container and away you go!
Full steam ovens from Neff are an oven and a steamer in one brilliant, space saving appliance. You have all of the full features of a Neff oven, with the added function of steam or VarioSteam, meaning you can have it all in one – ideal for homes who don’t want or have the space for multiple appliances.
When cooking on full steam, the fresh water from the inbuilt 1 litre water tank generates steam, which is then circulated around the oven from vents at the back. Using CircoTherm technology, the hot air system ensures that steam circulates around, cooking your food perfectly evenly.
Cooking with VarioSteam is perfect for creating food that should be crispy on the outside and succulent and moist on the inside.
Steam cook your food to your recipe requirements using the VarioSteam option on either the dedicated Neff VarioSteam oven, or using the VarioSteam function on the Neff Full Steam ovens.
When cooking with VarioSteam you have three options to choose from, controlling the intensity of steam required. Simply select the right amount of steam for the level of moisture you need – baking, roasting or reheating. As with full steam, the ducts at the back of the oven allow steam to enter, it is then circulated during CircoTherm.
There are preset programmes to choose from, helping you to select the best cooking environment for your dish.
You may have never considered using steam to cook bread before but give it a try! You can create a mouthwatering loaf that is soft and fluffy on the inside, yet crispy and flavourful on the outside using VarioSteam!
