I am considering buying...

I am considering buying a steam oven and I've been told that having it plumbed to a water line could be a problem. Miele has one that says you can plumb it but wolf specifically doesn't. Do you know if there is a problem with plumbing a steam oven?

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Miele is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

I haven't purchased one yet. I am deciding on which to buy. The Miele is model # DGC6805-1XL

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

I don't think so. But it really is more of a question "is having a plumbed steam oven problematic?"

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

I don't think so

Ok thanks.

Not a problem and I'm sorry about the delay. Plumbing a steam oven isn't really problematic I would say, but there are several more issues that can occur with a plumbed unit verse one that you just fill up a container of water. There are electronic solenoids to open and close water flow from your house and if a solenoid fails it can keep pouring into the oven and flood it. Other than that, more electronics and parts are used to make a plumbed in version as opposed to a manually filled container. For reliability, a non-plumbed in version is going to be better, but I wouldn't say you'll definitely have problem if you get a plumbed in steam oven either. It's just more likely to have problems.
