With a single appliance that anticipates, learns, remembers, monitors, and adapts. One that can prepare 90% of all dishes. One that saves space and investment costs. Because it can bake, roast, grill, and steam. One with intelligent assistant functions that react dynamically to your changing needs. More food than usual? Food still frozen? Left the cooking cabinet door open too long? No matter what happens, the iCombi Pro adjusts its settings accordingly, so you’ll always get the results you want.
When it comes down to it, the iCombi Pro only has one job: preparing food exactly the way you want it, every single time. That’s why it’s equipped with so much intelligence - and why it offers such impressive productivity, quality, and simplicity. It detects whether you’re making one steak or 20, and adjusts its own parameters automatically. It helps you optimize your production schedule for speed or energy consumption - to keep your breakfast buffet perfectly stocked, for example.
