Cuisinart Combo Steam & Convection Oven

If you’re short on kitchen space or don’t have an awesome oven, the Cuisinart Combo Steam & Convection Oven is one of the most nifty, multi-purpose and powerful kitchen appliances that you can get your food loving hands on.

With a sleek design that takes up just 18″ x 15.5″ x 10.75″, this multi-action oven can produce everything from Chinese steamed buns to a traditional Roast Chicken and even fresh bread. It powers up to full capacity in just a couple of minutes which makes heating food for breakfast or baking a pizza as quick and easy as can be. Got oatmeal you made last night? Stick it in the Cuisinart and it’ll steam up to perfectly warm eating temperature in just a few minutes.

Despite the fact that I am blessed with a fully equipped kitchen, I still find my Combo Oven indispensable. There are plenty of times when you don’t want to waste energy by turning on a huge oven to bake a little pizza or bringing a wok of water to boil to steam one plate of dumplings.

With a 47 oz. removable water reservoir, the Cuisinart Combo Oven has 2 hours of steady, uninterrupted steam. Not an avid user of the steam function? How about perfectly golden toast? If like me, you hate the often jarring noise of toast popping violently from the toaster and all those crumbs collecting at the bottom, the Cuisinart Oven does toast to perfection too (it fits 4 slices of bread lying flat).

You can program multiple settings (that the oven saves) to make usage even faster and easier. If you want to heat up your breakfast oatmeal every morning, you can program a setting to steam at 210 degrees for 10 minutes. Pop in your bowl of oatmeal  and press 1 button before you head to the bathroom and by the time you’re done, breakfast will be hot and waiting for you.

Equipped with a wire rack, baking pan, broiling rack and crumb tray, this is one kitchen appliance that can take the place of several others.  If you’ve been addicted to a microwave but are afraid of the potentially harmful side effects of long term use (as has been rumored for decades), this Combo Oven will heat your plate of leftovers without those harmful side effects, without drying out your food, all in just a few minutes.

This really is one of the niftiest and most practical kitchen appliances for college students, young professionals and those who live in apartments with small kitchens. Easy cleanup, easy usage and great results.
