Visualisation of large kitchen with multiple ovens

A range of appliances by Gaggenau feature on Dezeen Showroom

Dezeen Showroom: German brand Gaggenau has presented a variety of appliances from its 400 series on Dezeen Showroom, including an oven that cooks with steam.

The combi-steam oven circulates steam instead of hot air, which allows food to maintain its nutrients and colour during the cooking process, according to the brand.

The oven has a 50-litre-capacity and a built-in automated cleaning system to compliment its hygienic stainless steel interior.
