NEFF - Cooking with steam
10:15am-10:45am

Steam and combination steam cooking combines the technology of a conventional oven to create succulent dishes with intense flavours and an appetizing appearance, just like you see in a restaurant. Learn how cooking with full steam allows you to easily prepare steamed vegetables, rice, and even full meals. Cooking with VarioSteam locks in flavour in everyday dishes creating succulent roasts, baking. You can even regenerate last night’s dinner to make it looked freshly cooked again.
