The SelfCookingCenter®
The ideal cooking system for your supermarket.

Our lifestyle habits are changing. In recent years, this has resulted in a booming takeaway market. The trend is toward healthy, delicious food that customers can eat comfortably on the go in order to save time.

The SelfCookingCenter® can free up or replace a wide variety of special appliances, such as convection ovens, tilting fryers, rotisseries, boilers, deep-fat fryers or steamers. You can grill, roast, bake, steam, stew, blanch or poach food, all within a space of less than approx. 1 m² .

Your applications:
  • Fill the hot food counter in record time
  • Fast takeaway
  • Unsupervised overnight cooking
  • Baking like a professional
  • Delicious roast chicken
  • Fresh for the lunchtime menu

Fast takeaway
Advantages to take away.

Easily prepare a wide variety of takeaway food in one single appliance with the SelfCookingCenter®. This saves on space which you can use more profitably to present your wide range of healthy and diverse food.

All trays in the SelfCookingCenter® can be used at the same time to produce a variety of foods such as pizza, chicken wings, chicken nuggets, burgers, fries or wedges.

Hot food counter:
Fill in just 60 minutes.

Prepare an extensive range of hot food for the food counter in just one hour with the SelfCookingCenter®. This is made possible by iLevelControl, which cooks a maximum amount of different foods at the same time. These include breaded meats, deep-fried products, meat patties, grilled vegetables, pizzas and other pastries.

Extensive and attractive options.

Unsupervised overnight cooking.
Turn the night into day.

Even overnight cooking saves time, as production takes place during the night without any intervention on your part.

a wide variety of roasted meats such as chicken, pork or beef can be roasted overnight, where they cook very gently and are tender and succulent the next morning. Remove the meat from the oven in the morning and then crisp the crackling on the roasts. Just 15 minutes later, the SelfCookingCenter® is ready for use again.

Bake like a professional.
Mastered quality in no time.

In the SelfCookingCenter® , all types of sweet and savoury bakes can be prepared rack after rack, piece after piece in master baker quality. Thanks to the easy operation, the results will always be top class. Simply select "Bake", load the SelfCookingCenter® and soon delight in the delicious baking smells of freshly baked produce. Up to 400 bread rolls can be produced in just ten minutes.

Delicious roast chicken
The ultimate taste and power combination.

Golden brown, crispy, tender and succulent - grilled chicken cooked to perfection. The SelfCookingCenter® not only guarantees this quality, it can produce larger quantities in faster turnover times.

Compared to a standard rotisserie, you need less than half the time. The chickens lose less weight and retain their succulence. That saves you up to 17% on raw materials – and improves the taste and quality of your food, something that cannot be expressed in percentages.

Depending on the appliance size, up to 96 grilled chickens can be cooked in a single SelfCookingCenter® in just 35 minutes.

Fresh for the lunchtime menu.
Finishing® in containers.

Finishing® is ideal for when you would like to offer variety in large quantities and top quality. Its success is based on separating production and serving: Food that has already been prepared in advance is chilled and ready.

Only when the food is needed will the SelfCookingCenter® be loaded on a rolling basis. All dishes are brought to serving temperature in just a few minutes. This eliminates long holding times and over-production. All food will always get to service fresh, hot, hygienic and always in the right quantity.
