The Science of Steam?

Over the last few months, we have blogged about steam being a possible feature in ovens. Steam actually is the best way of cooking, because it does not bake out the nutrients.

It seems steam is being utilized for other appliances. First, there was laundry, where steam can (supposedly) power out stains and refresh clothes.

Now it is dishwashers. Maytag and LG have started manufacturing products with steam as a feature. Of course, they were not the first manufacturer to do so. Thermador featured steam 20 years ago. The theory is steam will loosen the baked on stains, which will be washed clean.


However, the by product of hot water is steam....Dishwashers already use it for washing and drying. Your money may be better spent elsewhere.
