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.

LIFE UPGRADED: THE LAST-MINUTE MIELE COFFEE SYSTEM

Miele Coffee System Blog

Patti and her husband bought all new Miele kitchen appliances at Bekins during a complete remodel of their home in Spring Lake. They added a Miele coffee system at the last minute to “fill a hole” in the design of their cabinetry. Funny enough, it’s now the appliance they use the most.

“Completely the most,” Patti said. “I go through a pound of coffee each week, my husband makes his coffee every morning. Every afternoon I have a caramel salted latte. It’s become our favorite appliance.”

The homeowners program their favorite drinks into the coffee system, so the system can make it with the touch of a button. It also replaces their daily run to the coffee shop.

On top of the coffee system, the homeowners chose a Miele custom-panel dishwasher, electric cooktop, a convection wall oven, a microwave, plus a combination steam and convection wall oven.

THE ADVANTAGES OF A MIELE KITCHEN

MIELE CUSTOM-PANEL DISHWASHER
Patti really wanted the brand of dishwasher she had before. However, she wanted to take advantage of a deal from Miele that included their dishwasher. Now, she says she would never look back.

“The interior design and the way it loads is superior,” Patti said. “It’s also quiet. It beat (her previous brand). I will always now do a Miele.”

Miele Electric Cooktop
“I like it because it has no knobs,” Patti said. “It’s all controlled just by touch. It’s very easy to clean. I burn a lot of stuff, spill over a lot and it’s very easy to clean. I’ve looked at gas, but every time you boil over it’s just too big of a mess.”

Miele Combi-Steam Wall Oven
“I love the steamer,” Patti said. “For two people it is exactly the right size. It heats up unbelievably fast, so I only have to heat up the big oven for turkeys and so forth.”

Miele Microwave
“The design and how it works is outstanding,” Patti said. “You think you are going backwards because you’ve got dials, but it’s so much faster for me than programming it with buttons.”

WANT THE BEST VACUUM AT ITS BEST PRICE? VISIT BEKINS TODAY!

Miele Best Vacuum, we do not sell products online

We offer quite a variety of appliance brands at Bekins. Yet, we only offer one brand of vacuum because one brand stands head and shoulders above the rest. Time after time, experts name a Miele the best vacuum around and there has never been a better time to buy one at Bekins.

Many of the vacuums you can test in our showrooms carry a discounted price tag right now.  They are the same models that have helped Miele win more than 60 consumer vacuum tests worldwide since 2005.

If you are looking for variety, Miele offers that too.

WHICH MIELE VACUUM WORKS BEST FOR YOU?

Canister Miele Vacuum
Mini-Stick Miele Vacuum

Canister Vacuum

Miele says its canister vacuums offer the widest range of features. You can get a full size canister or a light-weight compact version.

Keep this style in mind if you have a lot of stairs in your home.

The Classic C-1 Olympus floor models cost only $299 while supplies last. It provides a wonderful opportunity to enjoy many of the benefits offered by Miele vacuums because you will likely not find it at a lower price.

Mini-Stick Vacuum Cleaner

Miele says this form of vacuum works best for rooms with a lot of furniture. It’s light weight also makes it easy to carry.

You can test the SH-1 in our Grand Haven and Grand Rapids showrooms. When you test it, notice the 1000 Watts of power but how it also offers efficient suction at lower power levels.

Upright Miele Vacuum
Robotic Miele Vacuum

Upright Vacuums

Miele says its upright vacuums work best for heavily used, robust carpeting. Yet, its SwivelNeck technology and slender body let it glide around and underneath most furniture.

Only Miele upright vacuums offer automatic height adjustment technology. The vacuum adjusts to the height of your carpet to offer the best cleaning.

You can find awesome savings on Dynamic U1 Autoeco, Jazz Upright, and Twist Upright vacuums in Grand Rapids and Grand Haven. The offers include floor models and are only valid while supplies last.

Robot Vacuum Cleaner

Miele says this version works best for everyday use in between regular cleaning. The Scout RX1 offers smart navigation for cleaning difficult to reach areas, including advanced corner cleaning technology.

It can sweep, brush and vacuum with its Triple Cleaning System. The Scout RX1 avoids collisions and falls by recognizing furniture stairs and obstacles.

It does it with an extremely long battery life.  You can find a $399 price tag on our RX1 floor models while supplies last.

Why we don't do online shopping

WHY IT’S THE BEST VACUUM BRAND

You would think the best vacuum would also last a long time, right? Customers who buy Miele commonly keep them for decades. Miele aims to keep its vacuums working for 20 years or more.

Whether it has an AirClean filter or a HEPA filter, the vacuum will leave the air in your home cleaner than when you started using it.

Many of the models include a long cord that easily retracts, easy to change settings on the handle, and a way to let you know when the bag is full.

THE MOST IMPORTANT TEST? WHAT YOU SEE IN OUR SHOWROOM

We always talk about our live showrooms. We keep our vacuums plugged in too. Come visit us in Grand Haven or Grand Rapids to see why experts say Miele makes the best vacuum.
