Miele Australia announced a new stainless steel oven that is able to incorporate small quantities of steam into the cooking programme when appropriate.

According to Miele, when using Moisture Plus in automatic mode, the oven automatically injects a burst of steam into the cavity at pre-determined points during the cooking process. Alternatively, users can select the number of steam injections manually, at intervals directed in their own recipe.
To operate, the user simply needs to place a glass of water below a filler tube located on the oven door frame and select “Moisture Plus” on the touch display. The oven will then take in the appropriate quantity of water through the tube.
For example, steam can be injected on bread and rolls in the first few minutes to allow the dough to rise more effectively and form an ‘attractive, glossy crust’.
In the case of roasting fatty meat, the additional moisture in the form of hot steam at the start of the programme ensures that as much fat as possible melts away, to create a roast that is crisp on the outside and succulent and tender on the inside.
The new H 5241 B will be available from mid November for $2499.
