More time for the essentials
The SelfCooking Center® ushers in a new era in cooking. Complicated controls and constant monitoring of the cooking processes are now a thing of the past. The chef simply selects the desired degree of browning (from light to dark) and how well done (from medium rare to well done). And that’s it! The SelfCooking Center® automatically detects all the product-specific requirements, such as the size of the food to be cooked and the load size, and fully automatically controls the cooking time, temperature, cooking cabinet humidity and air speed. This gives a perfect cooking result with uniformly top quality food. And best of all is that The user has more time for the essentials – more time for buying, menu planning, mise en place and more time for the guests.
