Full steam ahead: a new star cooker is born. It is called Steamwave and comes from Sharp. This 3-in-1 steam oven is an intelligent combination of steamer, grill and microwave. The AX-1100 is available in two colour variants. It uses pure steam to prepare meals. This high-quality all-rounder brings the combined virtues of convenience, real taste and health to the modern kitchen.
Berlin, IFA 2011. What will we have for dinner this evening? Chicken satay sticks on tomato rice? Or baked fish and vegetables with couscous? With the new Steamwave from Sharp, there are no limits to culinary creativity. The preprogrammed automatic settings help the health-conscious mother, demanding professional or busy student to prepare varied meals and healthy menus quickly and easily. By cooking foods using the less destructive steaming method, a large proportion of the vitamins, nutrients and natural tastes are preserved.
“Our new Steamwave can turn dinner into a healthy and varied menu in no time at all,” says Beate Moresmau, Product Manager White Goods at Sharp Electronics Europe. “For example, with the new 3-in-1 oven from Sharp, you can prepare complete dishes for up to four people. Whether meat, fish, vegetables or potatoes – everything will be ready to serve at the same time. Thanks to the Steamwave, you no longer have to spend the entire evening in the kitchen if you want to cook a balanced meal. Instead, our steamer rekindles the fun of imaginative and creative cooking for anyone who needs to balance healthy eating, a busy lifestyle and precious little time,” continues Moresmau.
As an authentic steamer, the Steamwave from Sharp generates pure steam without the aid of microwave energy – thereby preserving all the benefits of steaming. In addition, users can select between two steamer temperature ranges (high and low), so that even extremely delicate foods can be steamed without losing their goodness. With the built-in removable water tank, no external water supply is required, so that Steamwave can be used flexibly at any time.
Simply mouth-watering: the innovative Sharp steamer both makes life easier and satisfies all the requirements of the modern kitchen. With its 860-watt steam generator, 900-watt microwave power and 1050-watt infrared grill, Steamwave can rise to any challenge. The generous 27-litre stainless steel oven is able to cook both individual meals and complete menus on two levels. In addition to 15 preprogrammed steaming and 3 steam-thawing settings, the oven has additional automatic programs for thawing and grilling different foods.
A feast for the eyes – the Sharp Steamwave conjures up tasty meals and also brings elegant good looks to any kitchen. Whether in silver with silver door handle or in black with red door handle – the new multi talented steam oven is the perfect accessory for the smart kitchen.
The Sharp Steamwave, in colour variants silver AX-1100(IN) and red AX-1100(R) will be available in the shops from late October 2010 at a price of 549,- euros.
