Steamwave was designed with the intent to create new uses for the standard kitchen microwave, keeping in mind the needs of the future society by using microwave energy for both “traditional” microwave functions and steamer.
What makes Steamwave an unique product is its 2 functions: a microwave and a steamer built to work as one or as separate compartments.
This product incorporates a new concept of microwave cooking where the user interacts with the product and has alternative healthy ways for food heating and cooking. Inspired in Asian cooking utilities and kitchen, Steamware allows the user to be part of the cooking experience and not just a user.
