It’s been a long time coming — Sub-Zero/Wolf just announced their newest addition to their product line-up, the 30″ Convection Steam Oven. Due sometime in early 2012, the steam oven will be marketed head-to-head against Meile’s revered monster of steam – the DG4084.
The appliance carries the same clean lines of the E-series Ovens but with an added touch of elegance that lends itself to blend well with the L-series Ovens as well. It can be installed in a standard or flush inset application and with trim molding to match either E-series or L-series. What strikes upon first glance is the generous interior halogen lighting, along with the new (for Wolf at least) digital control panel. Much like the Miele, the Wolf Steam Oven utilizes an completely automated steam bake, which will “sense the amount, size, and shape of the food” and “while cooking, monitor the time, temperature, and environment, eliminating all guesswork”. While the results of this system remains to be seen, it does sound on par with features on other top steam ovens on the market.
When we get one in our hands, we will be back to give you a more thorough review.
