Most passionate cooks are sold on the flavour and health benefits of cooking with steam, but up until now when space is limited, they’ve had to choose whether to fit a microwave or a steam oven into the niche above or below their wall oven.
Now, they no longer have to decide between the convenience of microwaves or the gentle cooking of steam, with Miele’s built-in Steam Oven with Microwave.
Tug of war is over – convenience vs quality
Debra Barrow, Miele’s Category Marketing Manager for Kitchen, says, “Cooks with limited space can now use their fully-fledged built-in Steam Oven to produce meals full of flavour, nutrients and colour, and use their Microwave function for fast jobs like making popcorn or heating foods.
“The best of gentle cooking and rapid heating have been combined into one appliance.
“As steamed food is cooked more gently with moisture, it loses fewer nutrients and less colour, so it tastes better and is more nutritious.
“But also, nothing beats the convenience of melting butter and chocolate using microwaves. The combination of a Steam Oven and Microwave is the best of both worlds”, said Barrow.

The built-in Steam Oven with Microwave perfectly complements Miele’s Conventional Ovens in kitchens where there is limited space, so you don’t have to sacrifice convenience for quality.
“For years chefs have used steam ovens to produce incredibly flavoursome food. Tricks of the trade include slowly steaming ribs or lamb overnight so the meat just melts in your mouth, or steaming your steak, before browning it in a hot sizzling pan. This built-in Steam Oven with Microwave will encourage thousands of Australians to eat healthier and experiment more, extending their culinary repertoire beyond steamed vegetables and fish,” said Barrow.
