We regret the uncertainty caused by this matter. The oven does have a heat vent, but it vents onto the cooktop surface. The vents are located under the control panel/display. Areas near the vent may become hot during oven operations and may cause burns. Do NOT block the vent opening. Avoid placing plastics near the vent as heat may distort or melt the plastic. It is normal for steam to be visible when cooking foods with high moisture.
