Full service hotels.

Destination excellence.

Special guests require special attention.

The key to your success: surprising, inspiring and fascinating. With the atmosphere, the service, the special idea but above all with the right food concept. You want to stand out from other hotel categories, increase customer retention and create profit from your food and beverage offering. However, what may be a given for your guests, is hard work for the kitchen. Why not delegate some of it? An intelligent system that thinks with you, learns from you and adapts to your cooking habits - and supports the kitchen team.

Take on the challenge: Inspire your guests with your food choices and your employees with the greatly reduced workload.

The iCombi Pro.

Expect the unexpected.

A cooking system that thinks with you, learn from you, forgets nothing, adjusts and adapts. Which can prepare 90 % of all foods. Which saves space and investment costs. Because it can bake, fry, grill and steam. Because thanks to its intelligence assistance functions, it responds to all changing requirements dynamically. More meals than usual? Frozen food? Has the cooking cabinet door been open too long? The iCombi Pro never loses sight of the desired result and adjusts the settings independently.

Essentially, the iCombi Pro only has one task, reliably delivering prepare the foods as you want them. It is therefore equipped with a whole lot of intelligence and impresses with it's productivity, simplicity and quality. For example, it automatically recognises whether it is going to cook one or 20 steaks and regulates conditions automatically. It supports you with time or energy-optimised production plans. For the best way to stock the breakfast buffet for example.

Everything for the one goal: So you can keep on impressing your customers with outstanding ideas.

Variety is hard work.

But not for you.

Breakfast, banquet, à la carte lunch and room service, and also a snack in between, a piece of cake and staff catering. Guest service is continuous always delivering perfection. This demands a sophisticated kitchen concept. With a cooking system that takes on routine tasks, masters all conceivable cooking applications, which produces the same quality time and time again and works intelligently thanks to iCookingSuite. Like the iCombi Pro. For bakes, roasts, side dishes and vegetables.

The result: More productivity and a high standard of quality. No matter who is operating the iCombi Pro.

A good start to the day.

For your guests and your staff.

It is delicious and your guests will be impressed. Your challenge: Not to present too much, or too little food choice on the buffet. Also to make sure that everything is always fresh and with perfect consistency - preferably for several hours. Sounds complicated, but it doesn't have to be. as bacon, sausages, scrambled eggs and French toast can be cooked in the iCombi Pro simultaneously. Or grilled tomatoes and hash browns. and even bread rolls, croissants and baguettes. The iProductionManager will tell you what can be cooked together, it regulates the production processes and will automatically prompt you to load and unload.

For one reason: A wide variety and great quality - with minimal effort. In other words, maximum productivity.

So that you can accommodate any request in à la carte.

Varied. Good Quality. Precise.

À la carte service requires a variety to food of consistent quality and that it has to be cooked to perfection. The processes have to be sophisticated and the kitchen team has to be flexibly responsive. By consistently separating production and service for example, whilst guaranteeing quality. Such as with finishing in the iCombi Pro: pre-producing, plating, chilling and only bringing to serving temperature on order.

Your benefits: High standard of quality, greater flexibility and no over-production. Ensuring that everything runs smoothly.

Show them what you can achieve for a banquet.

On every single plate.

With Finishing, prepare all the foods in advance, regardless of the time of the event, such as using the cook & chill method. Plate up the food and keep it chilled. Now you have time for your day-to-day business. Shortly before serving, bring all the plates up to the right temperature, at the same time using Finishing in the iCombi Pro. This is possible to achieve with several thousand meals. Always with the same good quality. Always with the standard you define, because the iCombi Pro regulates it all by itself, and will only signal to load or unload the food.
