Living a healthy lifestyle is something many aspire to but find difficult to do on a day to day basis. Whether it’s investing in a blender for smoothies or just trying to cut down on portions, there are many ways people can improve their diets. One of the best ways to invest in healthy eating habits is to install a steam oven. 

What's the difference between a convection oven and steam oven?

What is a convection oven?

A convection oven is renowned for crisping up dishes and adding those delicious brown edges to bakes and joints. Convection ovens cook faster and more evenly than traditional conventional ovens because they use a fan to circulate air. This combination of heat and air cooks dishes evenly. The fan keeps the temperature inside the oven even and also transfers heat faster.

While this form of cooking is great for bakes and steaks, it isn’t always great for healthy menus. This is where steam oven comes into its own.

What is a steam oven?

A steam oven has a water reservoir, that needs to be filled, to work properly. Once the oven is turned on, the heat from the element heats the water and turns it into steam. The steam then cooks your food allowing you to keep food moist. Another benefit of cooking with steam is that your food, especially vegetables, retain more nutrients than food that is roasted or boiled. 


We offer the best of both oven-types with a selection of ovens that can use steam to cook and convection to brown and crisp at the end. This offers succulent meals that are moist, healthy and look delicious.
