Look no further for an appliance that allows you to cook faster, with less fat, salt and calories. Hitachi’s latest Superheated steam microwave oven is designed with five cooking methods — microwave, oven, steam, bake and superheated steam, and grill — and an Auto Bakery mode. When these methods are combined, the result is better texture and flavours in your food. Fat and salt is removed when the microwave oven reheats food using 100 deg C steam, which penetrates meats and melts fat. This appliance also comes with 232 recipes!
