Sharp® Superheated Steam Countertop Oven to Be Sold at Best Buy
Nationwide Distribution Underscores Widespread Adoption of Breakthrough Product

MONTVALE, N.J., Oct. 8, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Sharp Home Electronics Company of America (SHCA) today announced that its revolutionary Superheated Steam Countertop Oven (model SSC0586DS) is now available at over 500 Best Buy stores in the US and online at BestBuy.com. Powered by superheated steam, this innovative product is changing the way people think about cooking.

"Sharp is committed to making superheated steam cooking more accessible than ever before," said Jim Sanduski, President, Sharp Home Electronics Company of America (SHCA). "Teaming up with Best Buy to feature this innovative countertop solution lets us help more customers across the U.S. to benefit from superheated steam cooking."

The Sharp Superheated Steam Countertop Oven combines superheated steam and conventional, radiant heat in all cooking modes – delivering on consumers' desire to save time, money and energy. With temperatures up to 485°F, the power of superheated steam allows for food to be both crispy and browned on the outside while remaining juicy, tender and delicious on the inside.

The powerful, low-profile, pizzeria style, countertop oven is capable of cooking sheet-pan meals for the family, delicate seafood dishes, and even personal pizzas to crispy perfection with 485°F superheated steam.

"The entire team is dedicated to promoting Simply Better Living across the U.S., and our new Superheated Steam Countertop Oven represents a new option in cooking that is simple to use, better than the competition, and supports your choice to live a healthier lifestyle," said Peter Weedfald, Senior Vice President of Sales & Marketing, Sharp Electronics Marketing Company of America. "Through our longstanding partnership with Best Buy, we have been able to deliver consumer appliances that support these lifestyle choices for many years."

Weedfald continues: "We believe in 5 reasons why everyone should visit a participating Best Buy to purchase the Sharp Superheated Steam Countertop Oven."

  1. Not a Traditional Steamer or Steam Oven
    Regular steam is just over 212°F.  More than twice as hot, 485°F is higher than you would normally roast chicken or bake cookies. It is time to rethink steam.
  2. Instant On.  No Preheating.  No Defrosting
    The low profile and compact cavity heats up very quickly and keeps your food closer to the heating elements for better cooking performance.
  3. Five Simple and Versatile Cooking Modes
    Broil/Grill, Bake/Reheat, Pizza, Warm and Toast
  4. Perfect for Sheet Pan Cooking
    Each almost 40% larger than a standard, quarter size sheet pan, use both the broiling pan and crisper tray at the same time to cook for a crowd with less to clean.
  5. The Ultimate, Everyday Cooking Appliance
    Save your big oven for the holidays! The Sharp Superheated Steam Countertop Oven will be your everyday oven!

The Superheated Steam Countertop Oven (SSC0586DS) joins Sharp's premium built-in SuperSteam+TM Built-In Wall Oven (SSC3088AS) leading the way in superheated steam. Sharp has sold over 2 million superheated steam ovens globally since 2004.

The Sharp Superheated Steam Countertop Oven will be available at Best Buy and BestBuy.com beginning early October for an expected retail price of $399.
