FeaturesAfter the success of the stackable ovendishes Menu are now introducing the new Steam Tower: an original and true Scandinavian profile for a steam tool that grants easy use and wonderful taste. MENU's Steam Tower is a new kitchen aid for modern, healthy cooking that is fast, easy and very tasty. MENU supports healthy lifestyle with a vision to create modern and effective design. Steam Tower is a modern steamer in porcelain with all the qualities of the traditional Asian steamer - but with a much cleaner, innovative and easy-to-use design
Designer Christian Bjørn has been inspired by the Asian kitchen and created what is already on its way to become a Scandinavian classic."I have focused on a design that must function on even a professional level - but improved many details to work even better for a modern family in the kitchen daily flow," says designer and architect Christian Bjørn. He has worked closely with Michelin-awarded cook Morten Køster, who has been part of developing the Steam Tower concept. "Steaming is the natural and most healthy way to cook your food in a way that preserve the vitamins and minerals in the food and an important part of a lighter and more tasteful dishs," explains Morten Køster, who has tested the Steam Tower and put together the recipe book that comes with the Steam Tower.
The Steam Tower works by placing it in the oven over water. When the water evaporates into steam, the steam will circulate around and through the layers, cooking the food in the healthiest way with a moist texture to the dishes.And since hot steam transfers no taste - it is the ideal way to cook fish, meat, vegetables and dessert together at the same time. "Most of the food we love taste great steamed: broccoli, cauliflower, corn on the cob, carrots, artichokes, zucchini, chicken breast, pork chops, turkey, fish and seafood - and steaming is even more climate friendly,because all the food can all be cooked together," says Morten Køster.
