The SelfCookingCenter®
The perfect cooking system for your gas station.

The booming to-go market and changing consumer habits are helping bring even more business to gas stations and rest stops. Demand is high for healthy, tasty, convenient snacks that customers can eat standing up or order to-go to save time.

Once upon a time, stores needed all sorts of specialty equipment to prepare snacks and hot meals—grills, ovens, stoves, pots and pans, to name just a few. Today, you can prepare a wide selection of snacks and baked goods quickly and easily using just one appliance.

Potential uses:
  • A variety of baked goods at the touch of a button
  • Baked goods always fresh
  • Tasty snacks
  • Fresh, delicious lunch options
  • Hearty breakfasts

The convenience store food landscape has been noticeably changing over the past few years. Increasingly, consumers are looking beyond restaurants and grocery stores to c-stores for fresh and high-quality meal items at all times of day. Data around consumer behavior confirms this new trend.

A variety of baked goods at the touch of a button
Quality your customers will love.

Your SelfCookingCenter® is the world’s only intelligent cooking system, and also has all the functions you’ll need for professional-quality baking. It is perfect for preparing cakes, bread, rolls, pretzels, cookies, biscuits, and more. You can even adjust it to accommodate local differences, such as regional styles of pretzels or cheesecake.

Soft crust or crisp? Golden or dark brown? Just put in the results you want, and your SelfCookingCenter® will take care of the rest. It senses the size and state of your products, along with the size of the load.

Performance examples:

  • 320 croissants in 23 minutes
  • 480 rolls in 18 minutes

With iLevelControl, you can prepare all sorts of baked goods at the same time, in exactly the quantities you need. Now you’ll always have fresh bakery products ready to sell—practically without thinking about it.

You can restock your supplies in a snap, and you can even work efficiently when you’re only preparing smaller quantities.
