At the expense of security, I have a shitty 30€ oven which I opened and ripped out the thermostat circuit to get higher temps, so it works at full power all the time. It is a high risk, I know, but it's not at home. It's somehow in a covered space in the garden where it poses no risk, and for the price I don't really care for long life, it's not intended to be used frecuently.

I have an oven by this brand : Commercial oven, combi oven and professional cooking system | UNOX
(the name may look German, but it's Italian manufacture : Uno X)
The comparable size current model is the xvc305, can do 10 XL size pizzas in one go. Combi oven UNOX XVC305 - iPelican.com

Beauty of a combi-steamer is that vapors are extracted. With the steam control button set to zero and max temperature, the oven basically operates as an open door grill (but with the door closed).
Built-in, and at ~€3,500 + 21% tax, ripping out a thermostat is not my cup of tea (and you know what the weather is like overhere).

Oldy pic : Is PTFE/Teflon harmful?
In order to handle the weight, the yellow cupboard is 2'' mdf all round, btw.
Water tap, drain pipe, and mains sockets are behind the cupboard. (the huge depth isn't very practical though)
To vent the excess steam, there's a hole in the outer wall at the front of the house. Still an amusing sight to see the wall of a home blow out steam.

don't have a "salamandre" -- how about using the hot air gun from the rework station to crisp up the sugar on the creme brulese?
