Leftovers Get Steamy….

Steam ovens are still one of the relatively newer appliances to hit the market…..our sales staff loves to use them and show them to customers.    There are several misconceptions associated with the steam oven – they look too small, they don’t seem like they would perform multiple functions, and why do I need another cooking  appliance in my kitchen?
A lot of food makes it way through our showroom live kitchens and into the mouths of our staff and customers.   Recently, one of our vendors treated us to lunch and provided  massive amounts of food from Tijuana Flats, we made a good dent but had lots of leftovers.

We fit 8 leftover containers into 2 steam ovens to reheat…..the Bosch and the Jenn-Air. I was a doubter about their ability to hold all the containers, but I was proved wrong.    They were not too small.

We were able to heat large amounts of food in just 2 steam ovens.  One of the great qualities of heating with steam is, you have the advantage of adding moisture back in to your food resulting in leftovers that are not dried out and often taste better the second time around.

This blog is singing the praises of elevating the taste, and saving the life of leftovers by using the wonderful steam oven.  Steam ovens are way more than a means to heat up leftovers…..they will crisp food while maintaining the moisture, they have the space and ability to cook the whole meal from veggies to meats in one appliance, there are pre-set modes to perform multiple functions from defrosting to making perfect boiled eggs  or the flakiest pastry.

Bosch and Jenn-Air both have great Steam Ovens – they have the same steam, convection, and combo steam-convection features.  The Jenn-Air has a slightly slower convection preheat, but the Jenn-Air model is 110 volts and works great in remodels without 240 volt connections.


The misconceptions about steam ovens are wrong….they look small, but hold a lot – they cook everything from a Beef Wellington to simply reheating multiple foods – and as far as concerns over adding an additional appliance in the kitchen, no other appliance can accomplish this much using such a small footprint of space.
Look out for future blogs that will go into further detail regarding the features on the multitude of amazing steam ovens we display in our showroom.

We have a New Kitchen

Change is good, it’s a sign of progress and keeps things interesting.  Our showroom is ever changing, appliances are always being updated and vendors love for us to display their latest and greatest products.

Our most recent change is our new Thermador kitchen, the folks at Thermador called on Jack Busby with Busby Cabinets to collaborate on designing a fresh new look for this kitchen.  Jack and his team came up with an efficient design incorporating an impressive display showcasing over 25 appliances.

We took out the existing cabinets and appliances, and put in a new floor….

You really need to stop by the showroom to see this kitchen for yourself, and see these appliances up close and personal.

 In the meantime, here are a few highlights to consider….

The Thermador 60″ range is pretty new and is one of the only ranges whose oven will hold full size baking/catering sheet pans. If you buy one of these ranges before the end of the year, you get 2 free dishwashers.

0f6658b0-1381-4f8a-b5dc-db00a88b2313  Thermador’s great new coffee machine is stacked over their double drawer refrigerator in our new kitchen.  This combo makes a nearly perfect drink station.  You have a cold spot for your milk or creamers, as well as your other favorite cold drinks.  If you prefer a hot drink, your coffee machine is right there to make an espresso, cappuccino, latte, Americano, tea, or cocoa.

What…..a Free Coffee Machine !?!

Okay…….you have to stretch the math to call it a free coffee machine, but if you go to  “FourBucks” once a day for about  a year and a half, you will spend as much money as it costs to get our best deal on a built-in coffee machine.

In recent years, coffee systems were introduced by Wolf and Jenn-Air, while Miele’s coffee machines got even more advanced.  The BSH Corp. (Bosch, Thermador & Gaggenau) coffee machines seemed old fashioned by comparison.  On the sureface,the new all electronic coffee machines appear to significantly outclass the older BSH units, but the reality was that we loved the simplicity and reliability of the classic machines.  You change cup size or strength with knobs, so you never had to work through any computer menus.  Frothing milk was a little bit more manual than the fancy carafe based systems, but the milk was always outside the machine on a dishwasher asafe wand and there was no required milk cleaning function with specific chemicals to purchase.  The  price was a little better, too. Well, new Bosch and Thermador coffee systems are here now and they are suitably awesome.  We will have the new Gaggenau machine soon.   To make room for the new products, BSH Corp. made us a deal on some of the remaining Gaggenau coffee machines.  The Gaggenau CM210710 sold for $2949 until just a few weeks ago, but we have several in inventory for $1999.  In a market where the competitive brands cost as much as $3699, that is a fantastic value.

If you are interested in a built-in coffee machine that makes coffee as good an any machine available today, is  easier to learn and maintain than any other machine, and costs less….come see us soon.  When these are gone, you will have to buy one of the more complex and expensive machines: yes, it will have cooler features, but it won’t make better coffee.  You will love any of our available coffee systems, but why spend more and stretch your learning curve.

By the way, do not forget to make room in the cabinets for Gaggenau’s matching cup warmer. There are few things in life worse than putting hot coffee in a cold cup.
