For those who like to cook, the steam oven is no stranger. With the improvement of living standards, all kinds of kitchen appliances become more and more popular. In the opinion of two dogs, Chinese cooking is more steamed dishes, Western cooking is more baked food, steam oven is undoubtedly the most comprehensive program, very suitable for diverse cooking needs. Two dogs before and after the use of many steam oven / oven products, is considered to have a certain understanding of these products.
An ideal product is definitely one that meets the needs of the user. Two Dog believes that an excellent steam oven needs to have the following.
1) Suitable capacity. General needs, then about 30L on the line, if there is a large capacity baking needs or the need to roast a whole chicken or something, then the capacity needs to be a larger product. If there is no limit, try to consider about 60L products.
(2) The conditions are suitable to give priority to embedded. Embedded more space-saving countertop, generally larger capacity, relatively more uniform internal circulation, the appearance of the design is also more neat and simple.
3) External freestanding water tank with large capacity. Large capacity can reduce the use of the process of frequent water refilling, independent water refilling operation without opening the box door.
(4) The material of inner liner is preferred to enamel. At present, the liner is mainly stainless steel and enamel two, enamel the biggest advantage is easy to clean, but the cost will be relatively high.
5) Operational interaction is important. Operation interaction will affect the daily operation, good interaction logic is also very convenient to start. Two dogs have used a full icon interface products, use most of the year only remember a few main menu logo, no text or other reminders is really not intuitive.
6) Intelligence is important. Reasonably, the oven involves different food cooking, the temperature, time, cooking conditions have different requirements, if the operation with intelligent can be quite convenient. Everything is connected time, can access the smart home will have more playability.
7) Functional compounding. At present, in addition to the steam baking machine function, many also with microwave oven, air fryer and other functions, there is a need to choose this type of function more composite products.
(8) steam method preferred direct injection, direct injection experience is much better than the evaporative plate, while water consumption is also more reasonable.
The first steam oven is also launched recently, the main steam baking fryer, 58L embedded design is also very real, the inner liner is made of full enamel material. 3000 out of the price, the pile of material and configuration are relatively good.
