The Difference Between Full Steam and Vario Steam Oven.

The Difference Between Full Steam and Vario Steam Oven.

Steam cooking is a fantastic way to cook fresh vegetables, but you can do so much more than this! From creating a perfectly crusty pizza base to a juicy joint of beef – injecting steam into your cooking can add a big injection of flavour into your food.

Neff offers a number of ways of adding steam to your cooking – from stand-alone steamers to single ovens with steam injectors – so which one do you choose? Essentially, you have 2 options with Neff – Full Steam or VarioSteam.

With FullSteam, your food is cooked 100% using steam and nothing else. With VarioSteam you’re adding an injection of steam to a cooking function you’ve already selected, for example adding steam with CircoRoast when cooking a joint of meat.


As we mentioned earlier, Neff’s FullSteam function is steam cooking in its purest form. It’s perfect for fish and vegetables as all the nutrients are retained and the food is left beautifully flavoursome. It’s also super simple to refill – a push of a button opens the concealed water tank that you can slip out easily.


VarioSteam gives dishes just the right amount of moisture by adding steam at three intensity levels. A low level is perfect if you’re reheating a dish you’ve cooked earlier and a higher level is great for baking bread. You can add VarioSteam when using CircoTherm, top and bottom heat, bread baking or grilling. You can also select from some pre-set programmes to help you achieve the perfect moist cooking environment.

What We recommend ?

The main difference between the VarioSteam oven and the FullSteam oven is the way steam is used in the cooking process. With the VarioSteam oven, steam is injected into the oven at regular intervals to make sure food remains moist. With the FullSteam oven, steam is used as the main method of cooking throughout the entire process.

If you tend to steam a lot of food, a NEFF FullSteam oven might be the best option for you. It can be a great addition to your kitchen if you cook a lot of food like rice, fish, vegetables, and puddings.

With a NEFF FullSteam oven, you can cook different meals all at once and they’ll all retain their own flavours, while also cooking much faster than traditional ovens. You can use it alongside a traditional oven and cook up a storm of delicious and diverse meals.
