Cuisinart Combo Steam/Convection Oven (Part 3)

Those are pretty chunky carrots and parsnips compared to mine.  I think if you cut them in half and did them at your settings they would be done.  Parsnips are stubborn.

Thanks for the pictures.

@Hassouni 

 

read most of the thread now that you have a little time  on your hands.

 

dont poke your nose too close to the door the first time you try Steam-Bake.

 

and the tray that comes w the CSO , improved slightly from the CSO-1

 

is flimsy , and the hot drippings you want staying in the pan 

 

not splashed on your toes.

It’s here! Now I have to reorganize my counters and get creative with space. By the way, it’s a CSO-300N1C. Is that a Canadian model? Are there any differences?

Must be a CDN model with the french and english on it.

Does anyone know how to tell if the convection fan is on? I am unsure if mine is malfunctioning or simply inaudible.

I don't know how to tell for sure, but mine is audible.

I  can hear mine.

I suppose you could tape a sliver of paper in the oven and see if it flaps in the wind

That's a good test.  I took a post-it, sliced the bottom into fringe (not sure that was necessary), stuck it over the fan vents and watched the fringe flutter when it was on. 

There are 3 sets of vent holes on the right side wall.  The top set (where you can see the fan turning - duh - another good test) seems to be the intake and the air blows out of the lower sets of holes. 

@jrshaul, if you can't see the fan turning with just the oven light, try a flashlight or your phone.

I did salmon last night; 2 small filets of wild sockeye. Did them at 250℉ steam bake and they were perfect in 12 minutes. I like them much better this way vs. cooking in a sauté pan.

Thanks to all of you for this thread.  I stayed up way too late and read the whole thing.

Made Chicken Thighs last night, the skin was amazing.  Hoping to find some wings in town for tomorrow’s dinner.  Bread to follow ASAP.

For those who own an iProduct, using the copy feature to paste notes/recipes into the Note App has allowed me to keep many of the great ideas here.

Well, I looked at mine and could not see the fan turning, then did the post it note test and no wind. I guess that explains the lack of noice when I use convection bake. My unit was purchased less than two years ago. The unit has a three year limited warranty. I ordered it through amazon.com and received the Canadian model. I have sent off an email with photos of the unit and invoice to the Conair Canadian center, asking how I can get my unit repaired or replaced, as I live in the USA. Other than lack of fan function, the unit works just fine.

One thing about the warranty.  When they replaced mine, the warranty on the replacement was only for the warranty time left on the replaced model.  I was surprised because I naively thought the replacement would come with a full warranty.

Interesting.  I've never heard of them.

 

Amazon has several reviews.
