Are plant-based proteins taking over? If you’re looking at social and searches, they most certainly are. More and more people are looking for healthy substitutes to meat without sacrificing flavor or texture.

Today’s meat substitute producers don’t just want to create meat alternatives, they want to replace meat. If you’re looking for a more natural approach, there are also new and exciting ways of extracting protein out of plants. Take jackfruit for example: Found in the fig family, it’s a perfect replacement for people loving pulled pork. 

SteamPro Oven

Every meal should be an experience. With that in mind we created the SteamPro oven. It has three cooking modes - heat, steam and a combination of both. In the combination mode it will calculate exactly the right combination of heat and steam automatically. Which means golden and crisp will be consistently achieved on the outside while food is always juicy and succulent on the inside. 

Whether you’re roasting or grilling meats, baking bread, creating delicate desserts or using the SousVide feature which we provide to professional restaurants around the world- you can be confident your cooking will be elevated to another level.
