Viking VCSO244SS Steam Oven Review: Steam & Convection In A Built-In Oven

The Viking Combi steam oven gives home chefs a choice of using steam or convection heat – or a combination of these methods- in a single compact built-in unit. The oven’s 5 ¼ cup water tank keeps water hot and ready for steaming for up to two hours, and its climate sensor ensures an appropriate temperature for gentle cooking. It even comes with a meat probe to check the temperature of your holiday roast or turkey. The Viking VCSO244SS is a built-in model, so you can install it in any appropriate-sized cutout space in your kitchen with the appropriate trim kit.

Viking’s Combi Steam/Convect oven offers multiple cooking options in a compact built-in unit.

The electronic display guides you through all the Viking steam convection oven’s features. Six cooking functions offer precise temperatures to prepare food using steam or traditional convection heating. Choose the steam function to heat food the healthy way and retain vitamins and minerals. Roast and bake with the SteamHeat and TruSteam option, which browns the outside of a turkey or other main dish while guaranteeing that the inside is thoroughly cooked. Combining steam and fan-forced air, these methods enable the Combi Viking steam oven to seal in flavor and cut down on the grease and oils formed when frying food. If you’re looking for a way to eat better and keep your oven clean, steaming foods using the Viking VCSO244SS steam oven may be your answer. The Reheat Plus function defrosts and reheats food using steam. ProBake uses a combination of steam and convection heat to seal in moisture and brown the outside of breads, pies and other food. TrueConvec uses fan-forced air, which works wonders when you need to cook several dishes simultaneously.
