Cooking with Smeg

Steam cooking

An age-old, healthy cooking method that preserves and enhances the real essence of food

Steam cooking requires less time and thanks to its delicate nature it cooks in a different way, locking in food's nutritional and organoleptic properties. This means that delicious, wholesome, prime raw ingredients retain all their original aroma, colour and texture.

What's more, cooking in a humid environment doesn’t dry dishes out; indeed, it ensures all the aromatic properties are sealed inside, so that foods retain their full flavour and true essence. 


  • It keeps food soft and avoids excessive moisture loss
  • It locks in more nutrients, vitamins and minerals
  • It gives soft cooking results for food that is juicy inside, and crispy and golden on the outside unlike any other traditional cooking method
  • It reduces cooking times
  • It allows the cooking of food from frozen, with the need to defrost
  • it allows simultaneous cooking of multiple foods without odour transfer
  • In the combi version it combines the advantages of a steam oven with that of a conventional oven


Smeg brings the technology of steam cooking from professional kitchens into your own home kitchen. Steam cooking is available in various types of ovens and ranges, offered in different styles and sizes.
