JennAir is 120-volts and can replace the space of a basic microwave, unlike most of the others.
Less dense foods like custards, fish, and grains cook well in this oven.
However, it takes a bit longer to achieve a higher temperature due to its lower voltage.
Casseroles and baked goods go well in this oven, where meats and more dense foods are not recommended in the JennAir.
Like the Bosch/Thermador, you have to refill the tank on the inside so that you can lose steam and heat.

Best Steam Ovens: Key Takeaways
Wolf Steam Oven at Yale Appliance in Hanover
There is a radical swing in price and features between a more basic JennAir and the feature-laden Gaggenau.
For basic steam functions, JennAir, Bosch, and Thermador are all decent.
Gaggenau is the best with the most robust functions, but I only recommend it if you are familiar with steam cooking.
Your next best options are Wolf and Miele. Wolf has some cool programs, while Miele has a more sophisticated interface.
You have to learn how to use a steam oven to make it worthwhile. Cooking variables like timing are very different from those of a regular convection oven.
