A steam convection oven is an oven that combines both wet and dry cooking. It uses a fan to distribute heat evenly in the oven, which keeps the oven temperature steady.
The circulating heat in a steam convection oven plays a crucial role in preventing the uneven distribution of heat, which helps it to cook food faster than a conventional oven. In order for it to work properly, a steam convection oven has a reservoir that has to be filled with water. It uses steam to retain moisture, flavor, texture and nutrients. The combination of steam and convection reduces the risk of overcooking and is ideal for making healthy meals.
