Thermador's Three-in-One Steam and Convection Oven provides a quick and easy way to prepare healthy meals in one single appliance. What was once only available to gourmet restaurants is now available for the home. It is the industry's first steam oven that combines three distinct cooking solutions - steam, true convection and combination (steam and convection). Its benefits outweigh stove top, oven and microwave cooking. Here are some of its features:
- -- Healthier way to cook because it retains more of the nutrients and moisture in food
- -- Typically cooks in half the time of stove top or oven cooking
- -- Will not dry out food when reheating but instead infuses the moisture back into the food
- -- Saves energy
- -- 40 automatic food programs
- -- Many advanced cooking modes to meet specific needs
- -- 1.4 cubic-foot oven cavity is large enough for a 14 pound turkey
- -- Self cleaning

Philpotts Interiors is honored to announce our senior designer Holly Boling Ruiz was nominated by Theremador’s top dealers in Hawaii and the Pacific Rim to participate in Thermador’s special Design Council that was formed just three years ago. This council gives their input and recommendations on Thermador’s new product designs and brand. The design counsel includes industry leaders from America, Germany and Turkey. Thermador has named 2013 the “Year of the Designer”.
The council took two-and-a-half days of intense brainstorming to review prototypes and design ideas for their 2015-2016 products. Council members were asked to comment on all design and parts of their appliances. You may view the profile of the council members at Thermador’s website.
Two of our designers, Anne Tanaka and Dawn Ching, recently attended the ReGreen conference in San Francisco sponsored by ASID & USGBC. While at the ReGreen conference, they discovered new sustainable products and learned of eye opening facts regarding green friendly products.
