The unit also provides reheat and defrost options, 11 variable power levels, a 24-hour clock, and sleep mode, as well as a pull-down door, an interior oven light, sound on/off, demonstration mode, a child lock, and a steam-clean cycle. Accessories include two porcelain-enamel baking trays, two nonstick racks (high and low), one steam basket, and a Touch Guide, as well as a SuperSteam Cookbook full of healthy recipes, cooking tips, and nutritional information.

If built-in options are not possible, it can also be placed on the countertop or a cart.

The convention over works exactly as it should - I made a cake and it came out super-fluffy and perfectly cooked in and out, and very moist. Also made a sandwich and the bread was nice and crispy and the tomatoes inside were perfectly cooked. I made two chickens - one with the steam and one without. Both were good, but the one with the steam did get brown (lightly) and looked better, although they both tasted great and moist.
Microwave works fine. Downside is that there is no spinning wheel, so you have to stir and flip things around - AND - the microwave keeps stopping to tell you to do that. A bit annoying.
Although the job wheel feels very expensive and all the options are laid out well - I would prefer some buttons, espcially with the microwave. You can't just pop something in and start nuking. YOu have to press the microwave button and then use the wheel to go down one selection and then press enter and then use the wheel to spin to a time and then you can finally hit start. They should have moved that up one level to make it faster.
You get several well built pans and racks with this, which is very nice bonus.Read more ›
I have made several dishes in the less than two weeks I have had this and I am impressed, giving this over 90% satisfactory rating. (That's just a personal measure). I like the idea of cooking the same foods, but lighter, which steam allows you to do. My first dish was a salmon fillet (18 minutes), which came out done to perfection and easily the best salmon I have made. A few things to note, I used an olive oil mister and barely used any oil at all, mostly just for flavor. The filet came out perfect - inside and out. It is amazing to see that steam can cook and crisp, believe me, it can. It does a crispy outside and moist inside like I've never seen. One big downside when I make salmon, the odor remains for days, despite my cleaning attempts. No such issue here, and cleaning was very simple. Scallops came out just perfect as well. I have many more dishes to test and now my expectations are high for future meals. Lastly, many of us are used to the "intelligent" cooking process of our ovens and microwaves. With one exception, the cooking program was spot on and the one miss was not that bad.Read more ›
This uses far less energy that an electric oven. At 700 watts, it even uses less energy than my microwave which was surprising. My microwave, a GE Spacemaker XL 1800 uses 1100 watts and can't cook nearly as many types of food as this oven. Although the price is a more by a few hundred dollars, I think the upgrade to the Sharp Supersteam makes sense because it can do so much more.
It's also more versatile in that it can steam, microwave, or even use convection to heat and cook foods. It is large enough to bake a batch of cupcakes, roast a chicken, or make meals for up to four people at a time. I made brownies for my first dish and following the directions on the brownie mix, I didn't need to change anything and they came out more moist than if I had baked them in my full size oven. Next, I made a variation of a recipe in the included cookbook and baked some salmon brushed with seasoned mayo and sprinkled with dill. It came out moist, delicious, browned, and wasn't dried out like it would be if I grilled it. Tonight we made Asian Style Meatballs, which was one of the included recipes and they were.. delicious!Read more ›
