Full Service Hotels.

Destination: enjoyment.

Special guests require special attention.

The keys to your success: surprising, impressing, fascinating. With ambiance, service, unique ideas - and especially with a great food concept. Because you want to set yourself apart from other hotel categories, reinforce customer loyalty, and make money with food and beverage service. But what looks natural and easy to your guests requires a lot of hard work in the kitchen. Why not delegate some of that? To intelligent systems that learn from you, anticipate your needs, and remember your preferences. Systems that support your kitchen team.

Rise to the challenge: Impress your guests with the food you offer. And impress your employees with how much work you save them.

Less space. More performance.

The new gold standard.

That’s a lot to promise. The recipe for success: a whole new world of possibilities in terms of both cooking and kitchen setup. With two cooking systems capable of covering more than 90% of all conventional cooking applications. Systems that are intelligent. That have the same simple operating system. That are easy to learn. That can be used flexibly on quantities of any size. That can produce a huge variety of food. That deliver the same great results over and over again. That meet the strictest hygienic requirements.

How you benefit: More productivity, more flexibility, more security.

The iCombi Pro.

Equip your kitchen for anything.

When it comes down to it, the iCombi Pro only has one job: preparing food exactly the way you want it, every single time. That’s why it’s equipped with so much intelligence - and why it offers such impressive productivity, quality, and simplicity. It detects whether you’re making one steak or 20, and adjusts its own parameters automatically. It helps you optimize your production schedule for speed or energy consumption - to keep your breakfast buffet perfectly stocked, for example.

The goal: Doing everything possible to help you save time, energy, and raw product.

The iVario Pro.

It’s about performance. In every respect.

Intelligent technology boils, pan-fries, and deep-fries in a single unit. And replaces numerous individual appliances like tilt skillets, kettles, and deep fryers. Which saves space, reduces investment costs, and guarantees excellent results. In banquet kitchens, as a tabletop unit in a front area. Like the new iVario Pro, which brings precision, productivity, speed, and flexibility into your kitchen.

For your kitchen: To help you create “wow” moments quickly and precisely.

Variety is hard work.

Share the load.

Morning, noon, evening. Breakfast, banquets, à-la-carte lunch, room service. And don't forget snacks, staff meals, and desserts. Serving guests never stops, and nothing less than perfection will suffice. Which makes having a well-designed kitchen concept that much more important. With cooking systems that take routine jobs off your hands, that have mastered every cooking application imaginable, that offer amazing versatility, that produce the same quality results over and over again, that work intelligently thanks to iCookingSuite. Like the iVario Pro - for pasta, stews, and sauces, for example. It offers extraordinary precision: no burning, no boiling over. Or the iCombi Pro for casseroles, roasts, and vegetables.

The result: Great productivity, great results. No matter who’s using the units.

A good start to the day.

For your guests and your staff.

Diverse, healthy, cold, hot - that’s how breakfast should be. Whatever your guests’ preferences, a great breakfast makes a big impression. Now all you have to do is stock the buffet with exactly the right amount of fresh, crisp food that’s the perfect consistency, ideally for several hours. Sounds complicated? It’s never been easier. You can do bacon, sausage, scrambled eggs and French toast at the same time in the iCombi Pro. Or hash browns and grilled tomatoes. Or hard rolls, croissants, and baguettes. The iProductionManager tells you which foods can be cooked together, manages your production processes, and automatically messages you when it’s time to load or unload.

With one goal in mind: A wide variety of delicious results, with minimal effort. In other words: maximum productivity.

So you can grant any wish in À-la-carte service.

Diverse. Delicious. Perfect.

À-la-carte operations face a long list of challenges: food has to be good, it has to be varied, it has to be ready right on schedule. Which means your processes have to be well-organized, and your kitchen team needs to be agile and flexible. By separating food production and service completely, for example. And guaranteeing great-quality results. How? With Finishing in the iCombi Pro: Produce food in advance, plate it, store it chilled, and then bring it up to temperature when an order comes in.

How you benefit: High standard of quality, enormous flexibility, no overproduction. So things run right.

Plate after plate.

Demonstrate your banquet expertise.

Four hundred guests, three different multi-course meals, all served at the same time. Thanks to Finishing. Prepare your food in advance and with less stress using the cook-and-chill process, and be ready in time for any event. Plate the food cold and store it chilled. And then go about your regular working day. Shortly before the food needs to be served, use Finishing in the iCombi Pro to bring each plate up to the perfect temperature. What if you’re serving a thousand meals, or five thousand? Doesn't matter - you’ll always get the same great quality results, exactly to the standards you’ve defined. Because the iCombi Pro automatically regulates everything, only notifying you when it’s time to load or unload your food.

Guaranteed banquet: success No stress. No extra staff. Unmatched results.

Rule number one for satisfied guests.

Bar food is more than cocktail olives.

Excellent bar food, round-the-clock room service, snacks in between. Sweet, savory. Innovative homemade creations, reliable convenience foods, legendary classics - serve your guests food they’ll love, any time of the day or night. Because the iCombi Pro is so easy to use, you can get good results even if you're not necessarily a chef. And MyDisplay gives you the reassurance that every dish will be prepared correctly. Make homemade pizza, baked goods, or whatever else you’re looking to do - all at the press of a button.

All with one goal in mind: Delicious snacks, reliable quality, quick production. Which adds up to satisfied customers.

An investment that’s worth it.

For the environment, your bottom line, and your hotel.

Let us help you get an idea of the savings you could enjoy by installing one or more iCombi Pro and iVario Pro units. For one, you’ll save a whole lot of space thanks to all that equipment you won’t need anymore - you’ll accomplish more in a kitchen that could be 60% smaller. For another, you’ll save on investment costs: the two cooking systems can cover up to 90% of all commonly used cooking applications, which makes some equipment unnecessary. And then there’s the environmental savings. The cooking systems use less energy, which means more sustainable production. And you’ll also reduce your overproduction, use less oil, cut your working time, and save space. Which adds up to major pluses for the environment as well as your bottom line.

The bottom line: It significantly reduces costs. And conserves energy and water, too.

Space savings

The iCombi Pro and the iVario Pro replace countless conventional kitchen appliances, such as tilting skillets, kettles, and deep-fryers, so you can plan around a smaller kitchen and create more room for guests.

Time savings

Quick preheating on the iVario Pro, no need for monitoring on the iCombi Pro - together, they save an enormous amount of time when preparing 80 meals.

Solutions for any challenge.

Always the right size.

Which challenges do you want to address with the help of an iCombi Pro? Choose from a variety of unit sizes and installation options to create a tailor-made solution. With an UltraVent attached directly to the unit, for example, you won’t need a connection to the outside or additional ventilation around the cooking system. It doesn’t get any easier.

On the table, atop a work surface, attached to the wall, on the central oven block or even integrated into it: the iVario Pro fits wherever you need it. Thanks to its integrated water drain, you don’t even need a floor drain channel, which prevents slippery floors for better work safety and provides greater flexibility in kitchen layout.

The result: Size and performance to fit your day-to-day challenges.
