Convection Steam Oven Steam Escapes After Use


  • Wolf Convection Steam Oven (CSO) produces too much steam
  • Will steam escaping from the CSO damage the surrounding cabinetry?
  • Is there a way to limit the amount of steam that comes out of the CSO after use?


It is normal for steam to escape the Convection Steam Oven after a steam mode has been run.

  • The CSO uses the steam and converts it back to water, limiting the amount of steam that escapes.
  • If amount of steam seems excessive, wait for one minute at the end of cooking before opening the door. This minimizes the amount of steam that escapes.
