Each recipe in this cookbook includes the nutrition facts of a single serving,
which is calculated by our team of cooking professionals. When ingredient
choices are given (such as butter or margarine), the first one listed is used
for the analysis. The nutrition facts do not include optional ingredients. If the
amount of food consumed is different from the stated serving size or if the
ingredients are modified, the nutritional values will no longer be accurate.

Why cook with steam?
Cooking with steam is one of the
healthiest cooking methods. The
steam envelops the food and
exerts no pressure on it, so the
vitamins and minerals are largely
preserved.
Delicate fish, moist and tender
meat and delicious vegetables
can only be achieved with steam.
Custard, terrines and dumplings
are also wonderfully simple to
make using the steam oven.
The Advantage:
• Almost no loss of nutrients
When steamed, food is not immersed in water, so the vitamins and
minerals do not leach out. Studies have shown that steamed broccoli,
for example, contains 50% more vitamin C than boiled broccoli.
• Low-fat cooking
Food can be cooked with low amounts of fat or, depending on taste, with no fat at all. When meat is steamed, the fat separates itself from the meat and drips into the baking pan.
•Reheating
Steam lets you reheat food without losing the original dish’s moisture,
textures and flavors.
• Meat cooking
Cook a poultry, beef or a turkey in just 90 minutes in the oven’s Steam
Convection mode. Golden on the outside; moist on the inside. Dry meat
is a thing of the past.
• Appetizing appearance
When cooked with steam, foods retain their natural color. Cooked
vegetables look like they have been freshly harvested.
You hardly need to stir or turn the food, which means that even delicate
fish dishes retain their shape. Foods do not dry out.
• Flavorful enjoyment
Steaming provides naturally flavorful food that needs hardly any salt.
• Cooking a menu
With steam you can cook several components of a menu at the same time, without the different flavors mixing.

How does the steam work?
1. The water tank is filled with fresh tap water.
2. When the appliance is switched on, a valve opens. Water from
the tank is delivered into the
evaporator dish at the bottom
of the cooking compartment.
3. Under the evaporator dish,
there is a heating element
which heats up.
4. The water in the evaporator dish
begins to boil and evaporates.
5. The food is enveloped by the
steam and cooked gently
without pressure.
European Convection
During European Convection mode, a heating element on the back panel of
the cooking compartment is heated. The fan then circulates the hot air around
the food.
European Convection is most
suitable for making sweet and
savory pastries, pot roasts and
various cakes; this mode is not
suitable for braising.
For the slow cooking setting, the
European Convection is specially
adjusted so all tender pieces of
meat are particularly juicy and
cooked to perfection.
European Convection is also used
for dish warming and keeping food warm.
This enables you to keep food warm for a short time and to warm porcelain dishes.
3
European Convection and Steam Combined
With the Steam Convection mode,
Steam and European Convection
are used together. This combination
is particularly suitable for cooking
meat and baking bread and rolls.
Thanks to the combination of
European convection and Steam,
roasts get crispy on the outside
and juicy on the inside. Pastries
get a nice, shiny surface and do not
dry out.
For the reheating, proofing and defrosting settings, True Convection and
Steam are specially adjusted to the relevant type of heating.

Information and tips
• Cooking times
Unless indicated otherwise, the cooking times in the recipes are for food inserted into a cold oven.
• Shelf position
When steaming, you can insert the pans at any shelf position. Note: If you are using the perforated baking pan, you must always place a baking pan underneath. This will catch any dripping liquid.
•Ovenware
Always use steam and heat-resistant ovenware. Silicone baking molds are not
suitable for use when combining European convection and Steam.
• Blanching vegetables for freezing
The extremely short steam time for blanching means that maximum color, flavor and vitamins are preserved.
Wash, clean and chop the vegetables. Place the vegetables in the perforated
baking pan. Insert the baking pan underneath. Steam the vegetables for only
approximately 1 to 2 minutes. Then briefly immerse the vegetables in ice-cold water so that the cooking process is interrupted.
• Reheating food
During reheat, food is gently reheated - it does not dry out and tastes as though it were freshly prepared. Place the food in a dish on the wire rack.
• Dough proofing
Yeast or sourdough rise significantly more quickly in the oven than at room
temperature.
• Fresh or frozen vegetables
– The recipes use predominantly fresh vegetables. If you need to cook quickly or the relevant vegetables are out of season, you can also use frozen vegetables.
– Frozen vegetables have already been blanched before freezing. Therefore,
spinach leaves only need defrosting.
– Vegetables such as broccoli or cauliflower are used in exactly the same way
as fresh vegetables. However, the specified cooking times may have to be changed.
• Fresh herbs
The recipes usually indicate fresh herbs. These contain many vitamins and
minerals. If you have no fresh herbs, use frozen herbs. Dried herbs have a stronger
taste, therefore adjust the seasoning accordingly.
• General setting values
In the Use and Care Manual, you will find appropriate setting values and
information for many different foods.
