*Why should I buy a DeSh~Stoom?
DeSh~Stoom turns every home oven into a professional oven with steam. Its unique material and design ensure that in a simple way bread gets just the right amount of steam at the right moment. The moisture must be added at the beginning of the baking process, otherwise the bread won’t have a crispy crust. DeSh ~ Steam produces steam after a few seconds. After about 4 to 5 minutes the dish is empty again as all the water has turned to steam. The result is delicious good quality homemade bread with a crispy, thin crust and a soft and airy inside.
*Can I get a similar crispy crust by putting a dish of water in the oven or using a water sprayer?
No, the well-known, but awkward method of using a heat resistant dish of water doesn’t produce the same result because the water doesn’t evaporate fast enough; the dish cools off too quickly when you pour in the water and so doesn’t produce the right effect. The commonly used water sprayer produces dents in the crust and the crust also becomes hard. Ice cubes evaporate too fast and therefore have no effect. These makeshift solutions may not only damage the oven, with many adverse consequences (warping, rust, dents and cracks in the bottom plate), they fail by far to produce the desired result. When opening the oven door (for example to use the water sprayer) the temperature drops. DeSh~Stoom stays at the right temperature thanks to its unique material and the pre-heating of the oven.
*Is DeSh~Stoom safe to use with food?
Yes, DeSh~Stoom has been tested and has been awarded the following food safety inspection certificate:

*Can DeSh~Stoom discolour?
Yes, when used regularly crumbs and remnants from the products baked can cause staining. These stains cannot be removed from this natural product. They do not affect the result.
*Does the steam damage the oven?
No, because due to DeSh~Stoom’s unique way of working all the water evaporates.
