Your CombiSteam Pro Smart Oven
Welcome to a new cooking experience
Thank you for buying a CombiSteam Pro Smart Oven. This digital user manual will help you get the best possible start with your new appliance. Remember to register your appliance for even more tips and better support.
What’s in the box?
Your new oven comes with a range of accessories included.
The wire shelf is probably the most used accessory for your oven. Use it when placing cookware and tins in your oven. Did you know that you can also cook roasts on the wire shelf? Use the grill pan to collect the fat.
The grill pan is deep in order to roast larger items like fish, meat and poultry. It can also be used for fat collection when roasting with the wire shelf. Don’t forget to use the drippings as a base for a delicious sauce.
The included food sensor is your shortcut to perfect cooking results. Rare, medium or well-done, at your command. Simply set the desired internal temperature of your ingredient and let the oven do the rest!
Steaming is a great way to preserve the nutrients and taste of food. Use the steam set when preparing vegetables, fish and poultry. The perforated tray goes on top - draining the condensing water into the tray below.
Bread, cakes, biscuits - whatever your preference the baking tray will help you succeed. Don’t confuse it with the grill pan which looks similar but is deeper and features a sloped floor.
Use the thin patisserie tray when baking smaller items in need of delicate heat like rolls, pretzels and pastries. It’s your go-to when making croissants in the morning. Note that the tray has a maximum capacity of 5kg.
The included telescopic runners that are fully extendable and can be attached to any position in the oven for flexible and convenient cooking. Simply pull your tray or wire shelf in and out for quick access without having to reach far into the hot oven.

Steam - Turn every meal into an occasion
Steam ovens can cook much more than just vegetables. In fact, steam ovens have been a secret weapon in top restaurants for decades. The extra moisture improves flavour and texture while preserving crispiness – turning every meal into an occasion.
Just add steam
Our steam ovens are regular ovens with the option of adding steam. Steam works in harmony with traditional heat to enhance flavours and textures when using the low, medium and high settings. The full steam option uses only steam to cook ingredients like fish and vegetables gently.
Preserve colour, flavour and nutrients
Cooking with steam produces visible results, ingredients retain their vibrant colours after being cooked. It also preserves the nutrients and vitamins better than other methods of cooking.
How to cook with steam
It’s easy to start cooking with steam. Simply fill the water container, select the appropriate steam programme and let the oven do the work for you.
Use only cold tap water.
1. Press the cover of the water drawer to open it
2. Fill it to the maximum level (around 950 ml)
3. Put the drawer back and turn the oven on
4. Select a steam programme and set the temperature
5. Cook your food and remember to empty the remaining water in the drawer once you are done and have turned the oven off
A steam setting for every meal
Humidity Low is perfect for browning beef, chicken, or even bread, to a delicate crisp on the outside, while keeping the inside juicy and tender.
Humidity Medium is optimal for reheating leftovers that taste just-cooked.
Humidity High maintains moderate levels of moisture that is perfect for flans, cheese cakes and other delicious treats.
Full Steam gently and evenly cooks ingredients like fish and vegetables, locking in naturally occurring nutrients, vitamins and colours.

Deluxe Steam Set

Small perforations allow steam to circulate around the food while keeping it separate from the excess water to bring out the best taste and texture in your ingredients.
The secret of top chefs
SousVide literally means “under vacuum” in French - it is a cooking process where ingredients are placed in a vacuum sealed bag and then cooked using steam or a water bath. Top chefs have been using this technique for decades. It is the secret to achieving restaurant quality food at home.
It’s in the bag
The vacuum sealed bags slow oxidation, preserving flavour. Ingredients will be loaded with flavor from being cooked in a humid, self-braising environment. The temperature is constantly maintained within a half-degree range. This precision gives you mouthwatering flavour and results you can recreate time after time. You can buy SousVide bags directly from Electrolux.
Perfect results - every time
No more overcooking. With the SousVide technique it is almost impossible to overcook an ingredient. Using the vacuum sealed bags and steam you have precise control over the temperature at which your food is cooked, meaning it will never be too dry – even if you prefer it well done!
How to cook using SousVide
SousVide may sound like an advanced technique but your CombiSteam Pro oven makes it easy to achieve results that are impossible in a normal oven.
The key in cooking SousVide is achieving a good vacuum seal with your bags. Vacuum bags and a vacuum sealer can be bought directly from Electrolux or a third party. Make sure to select a bag size that matches the amount of ingredients that your wish to cook. Ensure that the seal is tight before putting the bag in your oven.
The SousVide setting
Use the SousVide setting on your CombiSteam Pro Smart oven when cooking with this technique. The water drawer must be filled with water - just like when cooking with steam. The SousVide setting is for cooking meat, fish, seafood, vegetables and fruit at a low temperature. Once the food has been cooked it usually needs to be finished by briskly browning it in a pan.
Cook your first recipe with SousVide
Try this delicious beef fillet recipe with your new CombiSteam Pro Smart oven. You will this recipe, and many more, in the My Electrolux Kitchen app and you can send it straight to the oven for automatic settings. Remember that the food needs to be vacuum sealed in a plastic bag before using the SousVide function.
