Steam The Turkey This Christmas!

Tuesday, September 28th, 2010

V-Zug Steam Oven

Steam ovens that combine conventional cooking methods and steam are increasing in popularity with consumers who are interested in the quality of their food.

These consumers buy locally where they can and also choose in-season produce over those transported from far off climates.

Steaming these prized ingredients to produce nutrient rich meals is seen as the most appropriate method of cooking as it retains valuable vitamins and minerals, it is quick, beautifully clean and above all preserves taste and texture as well as those all important nutrients.

V-Zug?s Combair Steam S Features:

  • 56 Litre Capacity ? plenty of room for the ubiquitous 30lb bird!
  • 120 pre-programmed recipes ? including the Cuban Mojo Criollo recipe, of course.
  • Patented SoftRoasting programme ? whatever the shape, weight or composition the Combair Steam will cook automatically to within 1 degree of exact requirements.
  • Steam and bake on all four levels at the same time.
  • Comprehensive steam programmes, real Hot Air and a large grill make Combair Steam S the perfect appliance for cooking turkey.
