ConnectedCooking will even automatically adjust your system clocks for daylight savings time.
The Dashboard allows the ConnectedCooking user to have an overview of all appliances on a single display, which shows their precise online status, HACCP compliance and service status, as well as operating figures on appliance usage, cleaning details and the programs used most often.

How to. So easy you connect your devices.
Always on the safe side.
Food safety is a demanding challenge for modern kitchen operations today. Ever-increasing government requirements and stringent hygiene standards require a great deal of administrative work. It’s also important to eliminate operator error as much as possible. ConnectedCooking helps you with all of that and more – it makes everything easy!
Capture and document all key HACCP data. The system automatically records all relevant data from all connected units, displays it clearly, and stores it.
Of course, you can also export the data in table or PDF format with just a click of a mouse, and then save it separately or print it out.
If you experience any issues with your unit, the system will notify you right away – and your service partners as well, if you desire. From your service data readout, you can use it to make quick troubleshooting decisions.
You can set up as many user profiles as you need, so that ConnectedCooking users can only do what they are authorized to do. Each user sees only his or her functions, which minimizes the possibility of user error.
ConnectedCooking backs up data and settings automatically, so that your database is always protected.
Of course, ConnectedCooking uses state-of-the-art encryption technology on all data transfers, ensuring that only the correct recipient can view and process it – your data will never fall into the wrong hands.
To use ConnectedCooking to link your units, they need to be connected to a network. All SelfCookingCenter® units manufactured 03/2017 or later come equipped with Ethernet ports, so that they can easily be added to your network using a LAN cable or a wireless module.
Registering your units on ConnectedCooking is equally easy – just use your PC, smartphone, or tablet. The units will connect automatically, and then you’ll be ready to go.
To use ConnectedCooking with units manufactured before 03/2017, just have them retrofitted with Ethernet interfaces. In principle, all SelfCookingCenter® and CombiMaster® Plus units are compatible with the ConnectedCooking world.
