Steam Cooking


Steam cooking has numerous benefits which include retaining the nutritional value of food, along with retaining taste, structure, color and natural juices. 


Useful Tips


  • To ensure that you get the best results from using the steam function, start cooking food from a cold oven. Avoid using the steam cooking function directly after using the  convection oven, as this will reduce the benefits of steam cooking.
  • We recommend using the perforated stainless steel tray together with the baking pan, to get the best results when using the steam function. This allows food to be fully cooked while collecting juice from the food in the tray.

  • The steam cooking function can be paused at any time by pressing Tick_Select Button for Oven.PNG.
  • When pressed again Tick_Select Button for Oven.PNG the function restarts.

If while the oven is on, the message CHECK WATER CONTAINER appears on the display, open the door and avoid hot steam that will be released, extract the container and refill it. When the door is closed, the oven will go into PAUSE mode.

Steam 100

This function allows you to cook on three different rack levels at the same time.  We recommend placing meat on the upper and middle racks and vegetables on the middle and lower racks.

  • Use oven safe dishes and trays when using the steam functions.  
  • Remove any lids and ensure food is positioned above the grill.

Steam 130

This mode allows you to modify the temperature while steam cooking.
This type of function is particularly suitable for heating pre-cooked food and for preparing ready, semi-ready meals ad frozen foods from 160°F (72°C) to 265°F (130°C).


Once the functions have been completed, a circuit discharge request will be sent (see WATER DISCHARGE paragraph).

  • After starting the oven, food is initially steamed. Depending on the size and amount of food being cooked, the oven will automatically move into a convection cooking phase.
  • This function is particularly suited to cooking large meat and seafood dishes as well as baking bread and pastries. The recommended cooking temperature for baking bread and pastries using this function is from 370°F (180°C) to 410°F (210°C).

  • This particular function can only be used with convection oven functions.  By adding steam to the oven cavity it will ensure that food remains tender and does not dry out. This function is ideal for cooking roasts, seafood or large meat dishes.
  • Once the oven has been turned on, the steam assist function will only become available once the internal oven temperature has exceeded 210°F (100°C).  At this stage Steam Image.PNG will appear on the display.
