My advice is "don't waste your money". Had a panasonic one which claimed that could steam paus and siew mais just like our conventional steamer, but when actually used, the paus/siew mais turned out hard like stone. Yes, followed all instructions, added water to the compartment etc.

My experience was very different from 25hourmaid's.
I used the steam oven at my sis' house and was TOTALLY impressed with it.

The steam was very even (unlike using a cover on a wok ... some steam would escape from the cover if it is dented, chipped etc).

I can't recall what brand that steam oven was, but it looked just like a normal convection oven except that there was a compartment with a jar that you need to fill with water.

If i had the space, i'd definintely get a steam oven too! :)
(hahaha, also means my hubby and kids will be eating alot more steamed food. hehe)

Maybe mine was the very first of such a model and perhaps things are a bit different now and then. Mine was as far back as 2004.

Yeah, that could be it.
I used my sis' recently during CNY.
She bought the steam oven when she shifted into that house about 1 year ago.

I think we have solved the mystery! :celebrate:

If I am not wrong, there's only one model in the market now. Sharp, right?

Just wondering could it be Sharp Healsio? This is the steam oven that I've been eyeing too.

Just that the price is very steep!

Panasonic and sharp are the brands I heard is in the market that offered more affordable price. Anyone knows where we can see the live demo?

Haha I have been feeding my DH with steamed food and oven baked fish so is thinking of getting a steam oven which I heard can do a better job. Also with my DD growing up, I need to cook dinner more often.
