You simply specify the browning and cooking level and your SelfCookingCenter® will do the rest.

After the automatic preheating phase, you simply place the raw products on the appropriate trays and put them into the cooking cabinet. The products are seared immediately, sealing the meat juices in, as there is always sufficient power available. As a result, the products have wonderful browning, remain juicy on the inside and taste just like they are from the pan; all of this without any turning.

Automatic temperature monitoring.

If you want, you can prepare a wide range of products at the same time in a single load, because with the SelfCookingCenter® you have a multifunctional frying station, which replaces a great number of individual frying pans.

iLevelControl automatically monitors each rack individually and will notify you when the relevant product is ready. It doesn't matter how much food you load and how often or how long the door stays open, because iLevelControl corrects the frying time automatically, confidently and consistently.

With the rack signalling, this is even supported by lighting whereby a rack will blink when you need to load or unload it. This gives a perfect result.

For grilling, high temperatures are crucial. The SelfCookingCenter® reaches 300 °C in just a few minutes. It maintains this even with large load quantities, as it has the reserve capacity to provide the necessary energy immediately and directly.

The roasting side has a surrounding edge so that even the most fatty pan-fried cuts can cook securely and above all are crispy fried.

CombiGrill griddle with loading grid.

The loading grid is the ideal enhancement to the CombiGrill griddle. The loading grid really helps to reduce the workload when grilling large quantities, especially thinner grilled products, such as minute steaks or grilled vegetables. All products can now be loaded onto the loading grid outside the appliance. Using the loading grid, the products are then placed onto the hot CombiGrill griddle in the appliance in a single operation, and then just as easily removed.

Grill and pizza tray.

You can use the baking side for fresh or convenience pizza as well as tarte flambée and traditional flat bread. The excellent heat conductivity will give you optimal browning and crispiness every time. The fine ribbed structure on the grilling side is particularly suitable for grilling vegetables, fish and other grilled products.
