Perfect cooking overnight

The VarioCooking Center MULTIFICIENCY® monitors and controls the cooking processes for you fully automatically and entirely without supervision.
 
You simply produce your roulade, braised beef, ham or goulash overnight, thus gaining additional production capacity during periods that are normally production-free. And you achieve the optimum results thanks to gentle cooking at the perfectly-matched temperature.

Pressure cooking: cooked to perfection decisively faster

For all types of stew and for firm, boiled vegetables such as beetroot or carrots and other ladled dishes, simply select the relevant symbol button and follow the suggestions from the VarioCooking Control®. That’s it! You can also specify a different result, if you wish.

It has the ideal properties for temperature transfer and ensures maximum precision while cooking. You will benefit from this year after year.

Simply cook better

Fast searing without drawing out juices:

Thanks to VarioBoostTM superior heating power is available at the pan base in just a few seconds. The VarioCooking Center MULTIFICIENCY® unit‘s variable power reserve increases the searing capacity by more than 40 % compared to conventional tilting pans. The meat juices do not seep out, which reduces the use of raw ingredients by up to 20 %.
Sensitive products always succeed:

The VarioCooking Center MULTIFICIENCY® ensures a perfect cooking result without sticking due to the totally uniform heat distribution. The temperature is precisely maintained to within one degree throughout the cooking process. Even sensitive products are browned to perfection just as you want them without sticking or scorching.

Perfect results with no supervision:

The VarioCooking Center MULTIFICIENCY® automatically fills up with water at the push of a button. The heating power of the VarioBoostTM system brings the liquid up to temperature in record time. The VarioBoost‘s power reserve guarantees that energy is always on tap to ensure the required temperature is maintained. You no longer need to stir the food. Your pasta will not stick.
VarioCooking Control®, the built-in cooking intelligence, monitors the cooking process for you and automatically raises the baskets. This means that overcooking is impossible, and spot-on quality without supervision is guaranteed.
Nothing scorches and nothing boils over:

VarioBoost™, the patented heating system for the VarioCooking Center MULTIFICIENCY®, ensures that heat transfer is evenly uniform all over the pan base without heating the pan sides. The thermal energy is transferred sensitively to the product and is constantly monitored by VarioCooking Control® - the built-in cooking intelligence. Milk no longer boils over, nor does it stick or scorch.
Perfect cooking overnight:

The VarioCooking Center MULTIFICIENCY® monitors and controls the cooking processes for you fully automatically and entirely without supervision. You simply produce your roulade, braised beef, ham or goulash overnight, thus gaining additional production capacity during periods that are normally production-free. And you achieve the optimum results thanks to gentle cooking at the perfectly-matched temperature.
