Bread Week is the annual celebration of supporting your local, independent Real Bread bakeries and baking your own bread. We have a super selection of ovens that offer special functions to help those budding bakers among us create bagels, baguettes, cottage loaves, chapattis, ciabatta or whatever real bread product you fancy, to perfection!

Caple SO110 – Built In Steam Oven.
The stylish Caple SO110 built in steam oven has an A+ energy rating and has a 36 litre capacity. Featuring an intuitive touch control panel it is a delight to use. Thanks to the steam technology baking bread, pastries and many other dishes can be done with finesse. Steam options include fan and steam cooking (40-100°C) plus turbo grill with steam. For the baking of bread the fan and steam function creates a beautifully even, well risen, golden bake. Baking bread in a combination steam oven has many advantages, your loaf will have a lovely texture plus you’ll find that your bread will prove and rise evenly. Experts also find that bread baked in a combination steam oven stays fresher for longer due to the moisture in the crumb when compared to loaves baked in conventional ovens.
