Unsupervised overnight cooking.
Turn the night into day.

Imagine arriving in the kitchen in the morning and the roasts are already ready. No problem with the SelfCookingCenter®.

You gain time and capacity with overnight cooking. Drastically reduce roast and cutting losses. All types of larger roasts will be of unbeatable quality. And the special slow cooking process means the meat becomes very tender and juicy - every single slice of it.

Serve fresh.
Finishing® in containers.

Finishing in containers is not only suitable for serving food directly from containers. The feature has also proven particularly useful for serving in free-flow or other buffet systems. Here, too, you prepare food in advance using the SelfCookingCenter®, chill it, and store it in containers, ready to serve.

When you need the food, the containers are loaded on a rolling basis and brought to consumption temperature with Finishing® in just a few minutes. iLevelControl monitors every rack individually and you maintain an overview.
