Convection Oven and Steam Cooking for the Holidays

Miele Convection Oven Feature Image

The holidays have a funny way of turning everyone into professional home chefs. With that in mind, a convection oven and steam oven from Bekins can really improve your hosting skills.

Holiday Cooking with Steam & Convection

convection oven

We use the Miele convection oven as a great example of how it works. Traditional oven baking has a heat source in the bottom. If you have a large pan, the heat will move around the pan so the center of your food will get cooked last. Simply put, a convection oven places the heating element in the back and uses a fan to spread the heat evenly. Convection also provides better results when you have food cooking on multiple shelves.

steam oven

A steam oven obviously uses steam to cook your food. Steam cooking keeps food moist and makes it very difficult to overcook your food. Vegetables and fish cook very well in a steam oven. However, you don’t always have to choose steam or convection. Miele offers a combination oven that lets you use either method, or both at the same time. The combination oven works well with beef tenderloins and artisan bread.

WIRELESS ROAST PROBE

Finally, we recommend using a probe when cooking meat. Sometimes the cord can make people nervous, so Miele uses a wireless roast probe. Stick the probe into your food, then place your food into the oven. The wireless probe makes precision cooking both easy and safe.

Turning Old Electronics Into Food For Local Children

Hand2Hand logo hungry children

At Bekins, we strive to use the latest and best technology to help our customers. However, we still use the “old” electronics to help our community. Our employees recently bought the “old” electronics for a reduced price, with all of the proceeds going to Hand2Hand. Our IT Department and our employees raised $1,030 to help local children!

Hand2Hand is a ministry that works primarily in West Michigan to provide food to school children. Every Friday, a volunteer discreetly places a backpack in a child’s locker full of food for the weekend. The backpacks go to children who are at risk of not getting enough food at home while they are away from school.
