Advice on using steam for basic baking

So far my standard baking with or without Convection has been fine with the new oven. I fully appreciate the benefit of using steam when baking breads. However, I am asking for advice on using steam for more standard baking.

Will I benefit in using steam (and how much) for things like cookies and banana bread?

I expect some benefits in using steam for meals with meats. Any recommendations on how much steam to use? Maybe based on weight?

Thanks for any advice.

The best, fluffiest NY cheesecake I ever baked was done at 75% steam. So yeah, definitely worthwhile experimenting with steam.


Experiment yes, but not with cookies and quick breads that require dry heat.

Hey Frank! Long time no talk! Good to see you again!
