Love baking? Keep a clean kitchen? 


If the answer is yes to either question, then we may just have stumbled across the perfect partner in crime for you. Nope it’s not a new husband. It's the new AEG SteamBake electric oven and boy is it impressive.


It was the combination of 2 innovative technologies that really caught our eye, and we just had to share them with you;


Pyroluxe® technology - As a clean freak or perhaps someone who loathes cleaning, you are going to love this. Pyrolytic functions have been around for a short while allowing ovens to clean themselves. Yup you heard us right, your oven can now do the hard work for you.


How does it work?


At the touch of a button the oven enters a cleaning cycle and the oven cavity is heated to a scorching 500°C, turning food residue into ash. Once the cycle is complete, simply wipe it away to leave your oven looking as good as new. This method of cleaning is also environmentally friendly, as you don’t need to use an array of cleaning products to remove stains.


SteamBake function - A slice of freshly baked bread that’s fluffy on the inside, golden on the outside, and still warm from the oven. The perfect Yorkshire puddings for the family to rave about on Sunday's. Learning to perfect that ideal bake can be a lengthy process. For years, professional chefs have been using the secret weapon that is steam to achieve perfect bakes. And now you too can see a better rise when baking at home.


How does it work?


Before pre-heating, add a small amount of water to the cavity at the bottom of the oven. The SteamBake function then creates a humid environment for the first 5-10 minutes of the baking process. This allows the dough to rise whilst still keeping the crust soft. After this initial phase, all the water will have evaporated, and the dough bakes as it normally would. a Perfect tool to add to the armoury for all you aspiring bakers out there, and surprisingly not at a premium.
