Jason Davidson & David Bowman of Midland Appliance explore the versatility of the steam combi oven, a modern kitchen appliance that combines traditional convection cooking with the power of steam. Jason Davidson, who owns three M&M food markets, joins David and they cook a selection of appetizers and main dinner plates using the steam combi oven.
The steam combi oven is described as one of the most versatile pieces in the modern kitchen. It offers a wide range of cooking options and allows for the simultaneous cooking of different dishes without any flavor transfer. This is demonstrated in the podcast when they cook Beef Wellington and Salmon Wellington at the same time, ensuring that each dish retains its distinct flavor.
The steam combi oven’s versatility is attributed to its combination of convection cooking and steam. Traditional convection cooking provides even heat distribution and browning, while the addition of steam adds moisture to the food, preventing it from drying out. This is particularly important when cooking dishes like the Honey Jalapeno Flavored Pork Tenderloin, which has a stuffing that needs to be flavorful and moist without being overcooked. The steam combi oven ensures that the pork tenderloin remains juicy and the stuffing retains its flavors.
David and Jason express their satisfaction with the results of the steam combi oven. The food is described as tender, flavorful, and cooked to perfection. The steam combi oven’s ability to retain moisture and cook food evenly is highlighted as a major benefit.
