The right kitchen equipment is the basis for its smooth functioning. One of the necessary devices is a proper oven. It will cook or bake our food, which will translate into the final effect and may make the dish we are preparing delicious. In this article we will take a look at the combi steamer, which is considered to be one of the best devices in this category
A regular convection oven works on the principle of convection, which is the rising of heat due to the movement of masses of liquids or gases, which leads to the equalization of their temperature levels. The warm air is driven by fans, and a special chamber gives it a horizontal motion. In order to prevent the penetration of odours, the air is extracted and returned to the oven through suitable filters. In this way air circulation is created. As a result, our food will always be baked evenly. If we bake several different dishes at once, their smells will not permeate each other. Another advantage is the short baking time.
A combi oven uses steam in addition to the convection process. The air circulation alone can make the dish dry out and thus lose its flavor. In addition to this, the combination of convection and steam will ensure that the food retains its aroma and color
The combi steamer has several interesting functions: roasting, frying, grilling, blanching (putting food into boiling water for a while and cooling it in cold water), regeneration of food (reheating with steam) or baking with a probe. By choosing the right program you can prepare not only delicious, naturally moist meat, but also delicate dishes, such as creams or pates. The greatest advantages of the combi steamer are:
A combi oven is undoubtedly a very useful appliance. It seems that if you run a catering business, you should not think twice about buying one. Prices of such ovens range from a few to even tens of thousands of zlotys. Therefore, it should be treated as an investment, not only in saving time and money, but also in providing your kitchen with perfectly prepared dishes.
