When it comes to eating veggies, purple is the new green of 2018. We see it in beetroots, violetsweet potato, and hibiscus flower – each rich in anthocyanins, a natural antioxidant. Not only healthy, but also packed with flavour.

The possibilities with cooking purple plants are endless. For sealing in all the rich nutrients youshould be cooking with steam or sous-vide. AEG technologies enable you to cook with highprecision at low temperatures - ensuring that you get the most out of purple produce.

SteamPro Oven

Every meal should be an experience. With that in mind we created the SteamPro oven. It has three cooking modes - heat, steam and a combination of both. In the combination mode it will calculate exactly the right combination of heat and steam automatically. Which means golden and crisp will be consistently achieved on the outside while food is always juicy and succulent on the inside. 

Whether you’re roasting or grilling meats, baking bread, creating delicate desserts or using the SousVide feature which we provide to professional restaurants around the world- you can be confident your cooking will be elevated to another level.
