Efficient CareControl.
Simply clean and limescale-free.

With Efficient CareControl, your SelfCookingCenter® automatically cleans and descales itself—even unsupervised overnight if you prefer.

Based on how much cleaning your unit requires, it will determine the most efficient cleaning level and then recommend optimum quantities of cleaner and descaler to you.

Benefits for you at a glance:
  • No additional expenses related to descaling or water softening systems
  • Clean Hygiene Guarantee ensures that your unit is always clean and well maintained
  • Minimal operating costs and workload
  • Usage of solid cleaning agents provides additional work safety

Cleaning and descaling.
With the SelfCookingCenter®, they’re automatic.

If you choose, you can also save a cleaning schedule that fits your working hours. The SelfCookingCenter® will message you automatically at the scheduled times, and will make sure that your unit remains hygienically clean and well-maintained.

Expensive, high-maintenance water softening systems are no longer necessary. The new Efficient CareControl needs around 30% less resources than the previous model*, making it significantly less expensive than a thorough manual cleaning—and thanks to its use of cleaning tabs, it’s particularly safe as well.

“We save at least £750 a year only because we no longer need a water softening system. We have also reduced the running costs for cleaning chemicals, water and energy to a minimum.”
