What People Say

Paul C - PA

“After watching Larissa’s videos we changed our kitchen design to include a Steam Oven because we finally understood how it would benefit our cooking,  our only disappointment is we don’t live closer to attend one of her classes.”

Ellie K - SF

“After attending one of Larissa’s demonstrations my home-cooked chicken improved from average to off the charts (my husband + kids words). The Convection knowledge she shared turned out to be a life changing event on how I prepared my family meals from that day forward.”

Carol K, SF

"Larissa unlocked the mysteries of steam oven cooking for me and gave me the confidence to use the oven daily"
