When it comes down to it, the iCombi Pro only has one job: reliably delivering the same great results 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 burger patty or 20, and adjusts its own parameters automatically. It helps you optimize your production schedule for speed or energy consumption - to keep your hot food counter stocked perfectly, for example.
Fresh, convenience, frozen. American, European, Asian. Meat, fish, poultry, sides, desserts. For a hundred people or several thousand. In concrete numbers: The iCombi Pro 20 half size can prepare up to 160 servings of chicken cordon bleu in a single load. And every one will turn out browned exactly the same. Done to perfection in the blink of an eye. With a lot less oil than you’d need with conventional cooking appliances. Incomparably delicious results you can repeat over and over again. What’s the secret? The iCookingSuite, the cooking intelligence that detects the quantity, size, browning, and condition of the food, and adjusts cooking parameters accordingly. So your broccoli stays crisp, green, and full of nutrients, while your turkey burgers come out juicy inside, with perfect grill marks outside.
You can store your own tried-and-true programs to the iCombi Pro and access them at any time. If your cooking system is networked via ConnectedCooking, you can transmit your programs to other systems with just a click, and get the same high-quality results anywhere on the network. Standardization has never been easier.
