VarioCooking Center®.
The multifunctional unit for your kitchen.

Whether in an à la carte restaurant or in industry catering, 30 individual portions or thousands of meals, cooked overnight, under pressure or à la minute, the VarioCooking Center® always offers the optimal solution for the individual requirements of your kitchen.

What is a VarioCooking Center®?
It can: boil, shallow-fry and deep-fry - all in a single unit.

The VarioCooking Center® combines maximum efficiency and simple operation within minimal space. Conventional cooking appliances such as tilting frying pans, boilers, stoves and deep-fat fryers are combined in a single multifunctional appliance. It can be used for boiling, shallow-frying, low temperature cooking, confit or sous-vide cooking.

This means, for maximum productivity, as the VarioCooking Center® cooks up to four times faster and saves up to 40% in energy compared to convectional cooking technology in accordance with DIN testing.


Three intelligent functions.

VarioCooking Control®, the built-in cooking intelligence, will call you to action when you need to turn a steak, deglaze your ragout or when your traditional béchamel sauce is ready. The cooking process will then always adapt specifically to the dishes. Whether large or small, a lot or a little - your cooking result will always be perfect.

The patented VarioBoost® heating system heats the pan to 200 °C in 2.5 minutes and maintains the temperature even if it is filled with a lot of cold food. You can cook up to 4 times faster, without long waiting times, for every single batch.

The VarioCooking Center® also offers the practical raising and lowering device AutoLift. This guarantees perfect cooking of pasta, deep-fried, poached or boiled products.
