I love my Miele steam oven Chookie. It's a few years old now. The only thing I don't enjoy about it is having to descale the steam function very occasionally.
Thanks for that Cookie. Is your oven plumbed in or do you fill the stream tray. ?
Yesterday I bought some canned Jackfruit. Marina, do you use this.  ?

I think I tried jackfruit once, Chookie, a long time ago and it didn't do anything for me so haven't tried it again since.  I would be interested to hear what you think of it.

No mine isnít plumbed in Chookie. When I use steam I have to put water in a jug, then pop a little steel suction thing into it and push ok. It sucks up the amount that is necessary and pumps it out as steam when required. I can do up to 4 bursts f steam

This is the picture of the little steam thing that comes out Chookie. You pop a jug of water under it and it slurps up what it needs.
This is when it is pushed back in.

Today went to Harvey Norman and decided which ovens would best suit.  Have ordered a Steam Combi oven, a Speed oven, ( combined microwave and roasting oven, and a deep warming drawer( which can also be used for slow cooking. Have to wait till end of August. Price horrific. Equal to return Business Class tickets to Europe. ( pre Covid-19)  wonít be going anywhere so why not.

For a cook who is rarely out of the kitchen, indeed why not Chookie. You go girl!

Why shouldn't you Chookie? Enjoy it.

Thanks Marina.  You will not believe this, but microwave stopped working last night.  Think it is doing a sulk.

That made me laugh ... isn't that what they call 'serendipity'?

Marina, that correct. Fortunately we have a spare.
