BORA has a new passion … steam
BORA has always been synonymous with amazing innovation. Their cooktop extractors are revolutionary and are always one of the highlights when customers visit our showroom.
In May 2022, BORA launch the X BO – a professional standard appliance for the home, which uses steam in its finest form – for cooking.
We are proud to showcase BORA’s range of stunning products and are delighted to give you an insight into the forthcoming X BO.
Steam – the cooking revolution
In today’s busy world where there seems to be increasing pressure on our time, but where healthy eating has never been higher up the agenda, cooking needs to be above all else, simple.
This simplicity doesn’t need to apply to what we eat, but it helps if it can apply to how we prepare our food – to ensure an approach that is quick, easy, healthy and, of course, delicious.
Gentle, natural cooking
Steamed food is not in direct contact with water, the steam envelops the food to cook it very gently and preserve natural flavour, colour and taste and in doing so, ensure that vitamins and minerals are preserved.
The beauty of cooking with steam is that the temperature in the appliance keeps constant and the gentle action of the steam prevents the food from burning. This means that there is more time to put to use while food is cooking, whether this is to catch up on home admin or to just relax.
What to cook…?
With steam cooking, a simple rule applies – if you can boil it in a pan, you can cook it with steam.
What is a steam oven?
A steam oven cleverly combines the functions of two kitchen appliances – it’s a steamer and a conventional oven in one.
It can roast and bake food, but, importantly, it can also steam it.
With the BORA X BO, the steam and heat functions can be used together or separately depending on the dish, to always offer the opportunity for food to be cooked gently and sympathetically to the natural flavours.
For example, one of the benefits of steam baking is that you can bake or roast with an injection of steam to ensure the particular food is moist or succulent. Depending on the selected programme, the BORA X BO automatically applies steam during the cooking process at specified intervals.
This takes away the need to baste or add water to food to prevent it from drying out.
What sets the BORA X BO apart?
Steam extraction and a clear view
Seeing your food cook is part of the joy and anticipation. With the BORA X BO, the steam extraction technology means that there is a clear view of the oven chamber.
The steam is prevented from escaping when the door is opened due to the automatic door opening system, which draws the steam backwards before the door is released. After all, no one likes a facial sauna before they eat!
An integrated charcoal filter works alongside the steam extractor to ensure that odours are reduced, even when strong-smelling foods, such as fish, are being cooked.
Perfection every time
The appliance uses simple imagery to guide you through every step to ensuring the perfect result.
Precision cooking is enabled through programme selection: ‘Manual cooking’, ‘Automatic cooking’ and ‘Special cooking’. These are combined with a food thermometer, so that the cooking session is automatically ended as soon as the target temperature is reached.
As the interior of the BORA X BO is made entirely of stainless steel, it can be easily cleaned and descaled usig one of three preset programmes from quick to intensive cleaning – so it will always be a pleasure to clearly see your food cooking.
Intutive and ergonomic functions
The BORA X BO is controlled by a large 19-inch display that can be angled to ensure ease of operation. The touchscreen is operated by fingertips, just like a smartphone.
There are numerous pre-set programmes and a simple and intuitive navigation, so that cooking is straightforward and precise.
High-end glass surfaces, multi-level lighting and a stylish black panel all contribute to the stunning aesthetic of the BORA X BO, which is enhanced by the stainless steel oven chamber.
