ASKO OCM8478G Elements Combi Microwave Oven

The evolution of cooking appliances has been remarkable in recent years. Advances in technology have resulted in dramatically improved home cooking potential, with almost every type of food preparation and culinary style now available in household settings. Cooking innovations include pyrolytic ovens, steam assist ovens and combi microwave ovens for producing tailored results that will satisfy everyone. The ASKO OCM8478G Elements Combi Microwave Oven is an innovative leader, with 20 oven functions and the ability to switch effortlessly between regular oven, microwave oven and combi oven cooking.

The ASKO Elements range are state-of-the-art appliances constructed using the highest quality stainless steel, ceramic glass and solid cast-iron supports. ASKO Elements are designed as stand-alone kitchen dynamos, or they can be combined vertically or horizontally with other outstanding ASKO kitchen appliances for exponentially increased cooking capacity. The ASKO OCM8478G Combi Microwave showcases the clean lines and quality finish typical of Scandinavian appliances, along with multi-functional capacity previously unknown even in commercial kitchens. 

Why choose the OCM8478G Oven

Combining the full capacity of both microwave and traditional oven saves space and money. Combi ovens are the perfect option for kitchens that are tight on space but big on culinary output. The versatile OCM8478G Elements Combi Microwave Oven utilises the heating potential of both microwave and oven, meaning less time and energy is required to complete many cooking tasks. The design and integration is second-to-none, utilising the best Scandinavian oven design principles including touch proofed stainless steel, three oven door glasses and kid-safe lockable controls for additional safety.

The high-definition LED touch screen display is a real ASKO eye-opener. Appearing externally as a classically designed but minimalist appliance, the OCM8478G Oven is actually a cooking powerhouse with features that most oven users have never experienced. Innovative OCM8478G features and functions include:

·        XL cavity designed for optimum airflow and consistent cooking results

·        1000 W capacity microwave power

·        Ergonomically designed digital display with multifunctional timer

·        Tailored cooking programs and archive for storing favourite recipes

·        20 different oven functions for every style of cooking

·        Upper and lower heaters that work independently or in tandem

·        ECO cooking program for energy saving

·        Multi-phase step cooking where the oven automatically adjusts during cooking

ASKO have been creating superior appliances since 1950, when Karl-Erik Andersson built his mother a more efficient washer. From the outset, ASKO developers have remained true to the initial ideals, and today ASKO is a highly regarded international brand boasting a comprehensive range of kitchen and laundry appliances. 

Additional OCM8478G Combi Microwave Oven features

Cooking with the OCM8478G can be totally intuitive, fully automated, or anywhere in between. Microwave and conventional ovens have dedicated purposes, but there are also exciting cross-purposes that can be experienced with a combi microwave oven. Stage cooking is one example, where microwave action quickly defrosts food before conventional oven functions take over to complete the dish. When cooking is finished, the OCM8478G Combi Oven will even self-clean while you put your feet up.

The combi functions are stand out features. Hot air plus microwave can be combined for substantially improved microwave efficiency, or grill plus fan and microwave can work together for rapid, energy saving cooking that doesn’t sacrifice on quality. An ASKO OCM8478G Elements Combi Microwave Oven is much more than a kitchen appliance – it’s a genuine kitchen assistant worthy of the name.

ASKO developers continue to push the boundaries of oven design inspiration, and a new generation of ASKO fans are taking notice. Form and function have found harmonious balance, with ASKO ovens standing out from the crowd and standing tall in the kitchen. The OCM8478G Combi Microwave Oven is yet another progressive step in the ASKO story.
