The Cuisinart booth at the 2014 International Home + Housewares Show had a number of kitchen appliances on display, both traditional and newly innovative. One of the highlights was the demonstration of the Cuisinart CSO-300 N Combo Steam + Convection Oven. Viewpoints staff were lucky enough to get an interview with a Cuisinart chef and wanted to share our exclusive look at the upgrade with Viewpoints reviewers.
Cuisinart CSO-300 N: What’s New
Similar to the Cuisinart CSO-300 Combo Steam + Convection Oven in virtually every way, including price, there are a few upgrades to the Cuisinart CSO-300 N that make it easier to use for consumers, but just as powerful. The most important difference in the new version is the steam clean feature that was not available on the previous CSO-300 model. This makes it easier to clean for the home user with less hassle and less maneuvering around the appliance yourself. In addition, there is a new compartment to empty the water reservoir to avoid having standing water in your oven. Like the Cuisinart CSO-300 model, it has nine different cooking functions, including a bread and a warming function, and recipes are available online and with purchase. The appliance also has an integrated drip tray and an integrated crumb tray to make for a cleaner cooking experience.
Versatility and speed for the home cook
A versatile product that can cook vegetables and meat at once, and provides both a safer and quicker alternative to microwaves, the CSO-300 N is a steam cooking technology targeted toward the everyday home chef. Priced at $299, the Cuisinart CSO-300 N is not yet available for public purchase, but be sure to check out other Cuisinart products reviewed on Viewpoints, and write your own review of the CSO-300 N Combo Steam + Convection Oven when it is released.
