What is a SelfCookingCenter® XS?
The small cooking system with real intelligence.

The combination of heat and steam in one single appliance offers you new possibilities when it comes to the professional preparation of food. On a tiny footprint, you can fry, roast, grill, steam, poach, bake, and much more. You can manage up to 95% of all of the typical cooking applications in one appliance.

Benefits for you at a glance:
  • Outstanding food quality at all times
  • Easy to operate even for untrained staff
  • Minimal operating costs
  • No manual cleaning

Maximum performance, minimum space.
With technology that can do more.

The new SelfCookingCenter® XS offers all of the important functions to ensure superior quality and maximum efficiency:

  • Intelligent assistants to make kitchen work easier
  • Dynamic air circulation for perfect consistency without supervision
  • Powerful fresh steam generator with no build-up of limescale
  • Maximum 575°F (300°C) temperature for grilling and browning
  • Extremely precise temperature control for the best cooking results within the low temperature range
  • Humidity regulation down to the percent for crunchy crackling and crispy breaded coatings
  • Automatic cleaning, even overnight

Operating the new SelfCookingCenter® XS is amazingly easy. Even untrained staff can operate the appliances without requiring any demanding instructions.

A small unit with the same.
Performance, efficiency and intelligence as our other SelfCookingCenter® models.

Of course, the SelfCookingCenter® XS also has all of the same intelligent functions as the SelfCookingCenter®. These functions make our newest system a chef’s assistant that stands for cooking quality, ease of operation and high efficiency.

Its five senses make it more than just an ordinary combi-steamer.

The SelfCookingCenter® senses ideal cooking cabinet conditions, detects food size and quantities, thinks ahead so it will know how to prepare a dish perfectly, learns the chef’s preferred habits and methods, and even communicates with the chef.

All in a single appliance.

Stewing, poaching, blanching, and steaming – our high-performance steam generator does all of that. Whether its vegetables, fish, or egg dishes, you will achieve intense colors thanks to the precise steam temperatures and maximum steam saturation. The vitamins and minerals are preserved and there is no drying out.

Tender roasts, crispy breaded cutlets, grilled steaks, roasted chicken, and soft baked goods – thanks to sustained convection of up to 575°F (300°C), everything is prepared with consistency, crispiness, and juiciness that sets standards worldwide.

The hot and humid climate prevents the food from drying out, minimizes weight loss, and ensures an even browning of roasts, gratins, and bakery products. Plus, the cooking times are much shorter when compared to conventional cooking appliances.

"We only want the best – not only in terms of ingredients, but also in terms of quality of production. RATIONAL is the best, it’s the number one.”
