If you have never used a steam oven before, you should know that it is the key to preparing easy, moist and nutrition-dense meals. With a steam oven, you can easily whip up new recipes to try, like the delicious spring pea pasta with poached eggs recipe.
ICONIC LIFE Publisher Renee Dee headed to PIRCH Costa Mesa to learn all about the benefits of steam ovens and how to use them from Head Chef Kimberly Ayala.
“I enjoy the health benefits, there’s more opportunity for you to cook with less oils,” Chef Kimberly says. “You’re adding moisture to your food and you’re also retaining about 20 percent more nutrients in your veggies. We want to keep those beautiful nutrients that Mother Nature is giving to us.”
Instead of the hot air inside of a traditional convection oven, a steam oven heats up water to 212 degrees fahrenheit, releasing steam that is quick and effective at cooking. It also makes clean up inside the oven a breeze.
