We are more than likely building a new house, and with that, goes picking a new kitchen.
As well as a normal oven, we are very loosely investigating the possibility of a steam oven.
To fit in with other appliances, the brand would be miele. They are very expensive and I am worried it would be a purchase which we may not use efficiently or to best use.
My question is for people who have steam ovens, or people familiar with steam ovens.
Do you like/love/hate with a vengeance, your steam oven?
What kinds of foods or meals do you cook in it?
Has it been life changing? Would you feel naked if it broke down and you could no longer use it?
We would be looking at a base model, not a combination steam oven. They are still very expensive. I haven't really given it much thought, but DH thinks if we have the oven wall installed, there needs to be a second appliance. Painful. Not sure if I will win the battle that "one" appliance on the wall, won't look stupid. His other option is to buy a miele microwave to install above the oven. I have a Panasonic which works just fine. Don't know if I can justify the $$ on a microwave to reheat food.
I would rather spend the $$ on a thermomix if I liked it after demo......
