Grundig Steam Assist is the perfect feature for baking perfectionists

If you’ve ever worked in a professional kitchen you’ll know that bakers and pastry chefs are an entirely different breed. Amidst the hot and frenetic chaos of the main kitchen, their domain is one of relative calm, orderliness and precision. Bakers are professional perfectionists after all. It’s not so much an art, as a science.

Cut from the same cloth, the serious at-home baker also requires nothing less than appliance perfection, hence the appeal of the Grundig GEKD 47000 45 cm Compact Multi-Function Oven with Steam Assist Technology.

The Steam Assist function is the hallmark feature of the Grundig GEKD 47000 Compact Multi-Function Oven because it ensures baked goods are more moist and fluffy than ever before. How does it do it? Water vapour is added during the baking process, which ensures your baked goods retain up to 7% more moisture. Plus, your pastries rise 14% more than in a standard oven. For the home baker serious about ensuring her artisanal nut breads rise and cakes come out toothsome, this is a must-have feature.

However, it’s not just how you bake breads, cookies and cakes that matter to the serious at-home baker. It’s how you test them along the way that matters. A cake can be baked to perfection, or completely ruined if taken out a moment too soon, or too late. That’s why the full extension telescopic wire shelves in the Grundig GEKD 47000 Compact Multi-Function Oven are so fabulous. They provide a sturdy and safe access point to the baking tray when you’re ready to test your lavender-honey teacakes.

Finally, home baking perfection simply cannot be achieved without a clean oven. Baked in stains cause smoke, which ruins the taste of your pastries. An oven door obscured by grease will ruin any attempts to see how delicate edibles like meringues or rosemary popovers are coming along. Grundig makes this a non-issue for the at-home baker by once again using the power of steam, as well as nano technology.

The Grundig GEKD 47000 Compact Multi-Function Oven’s steam cleaning function tackles caked on grime by heating the oven up to 90ºC, softening these materials, and thus making cleaning easier and more eco-friendly. No detergent or harsh chemicals are needed. This oven is also the first domestic model to use nano-technology! Its Excellent Clean Glass Door is coated with an oleophobic nano coating that resists grease, keeping your oven door sparkling and clear.

All in all, the Grundig GEKD 47000 Multi-Function oven is a small but mighty powerhouse, with plenty of features to keep the home baking purist, and the rest of the family, happy.
