BOSCH, a leading German brand of household appliances, recently unveiled its new smart oven series called Bosch Series 8 Ovens, at the World Food Expo 2015 (WOFEX 2015) held at the SMX Convention Center.
The new Bosch built-in Series 8 Ovens, granted the 2015 German Design Award, features 21 new technologies, including intuitive and sophisticated sensors that makes it possible for even kitchen neophytes to whip up a delicious feast. It takes the guess work out of cooking, so very minimal effort is needed to come up with awesome dishes.
The result of many years of dedicated research and development by 130 engineers as well as feedback from over 7,000 customers, the all-new Bosch Series 8 Ovens can microwave, steam, roast and bake. Bosch makes use of its exclusive and newly developed 4D hot air technology to ensure even heat distribution for well-balanced cooking results. Delivering the consistent heating is a symmetric alternating fan, driven by the efficient EcoSilence Drive motor, so there is no need to guess the appropriate shelf level on which to place the baking tray filled with cupcakes or the roasting pan. Anywhere you put it, it still bakes and/or roasts evenly. It’s an economical feature because you can simultaneously bake four trays of cupcakes and they all four shelf levels bake evenly. Bosch has also integrated this 4D hot air technology with a new steam injection function, thus making it possible to roast meat with hot air and steam and achieve the perfect roast, which is crispy on the outside and succulent on the inside. Aside from the traditional steaming of fish and vegetables, you can also bake in combination with steam and take advantage of the oven’s integrated microwave feature to reduce cooking time by up to 50%.
For baking purposes, the Series 8’s PerfectBake sensor regulates the moisture levels in the oven cavity for an even bake, and you need only to select the desired bake-type, and the oven automatically sets the ideal heating mode, temperature and duration of baking, so there’s no chance you’d end up with underbaked crusts or burnt cakes.
This new smart oven also comes with a PerfectRoast meat probe, a device that measures the core temperature of meats and gives you an exact sense of the doneness of a roast at three different points.
To demonstrate the versatility of the new Bosch Series 8 Ovens, a cooking demo featuring three chefs was held during the launch. Chef Jean-Charles Dubois from the famed Balzac Brasserie and Bar in Singapore planed in for the demo. Following his demo was that of Chef Jill Sandique, easily one of the most talented pastry chefs in the country today. Chef Jill made Whole Wheat Zucchini and Carrot Bread; Orange, Rosemary and Thyme Bundt Cake with Summer Berries; Cheese Scones, which she served with clotted cream, curd and jam; and Chocolate Hazelnut and Banana Mousse. Closing the demo was Chef Kim Castillo, who made Edamame Hummus.
