clear design meets functionality

Convotherm 4 – designed around you.

Because we listen to you, the customer, the Convotherm 4 range has been developed around your needs in the kitchen. The two control-panel designs – easyTouch and easyDial – give you the degree of control you need: from full automation to maximum customisation. The aim of both is to deliver the functions you need in a user-friendly design.

easyTouch – the user interface

As a pioneer of full-touchscreen technology in combi steamers, Convotherm has now added a new dimension to operating convenience. The Convotherm 4 easyTouch brings you the latest touch controls via the 9″ full-touch screen with new configurable user interface.

Press&Go: automatic cooking using quick-select buttons for optimum process reliability. No need to enter information such as size, browning level or core temperature.
Versatile regenerating function with preselect for à la carte, plate banquet and buffet.
Manual cooking
Integral easySystem feature with separate Manager and Crew modes, as the ideal solution for restaurant chains.
Detailed servicing information so that you find the right help quickly in the event of a fault.
399 cooking profiles containing up to 20 steps and On-screen Help with topic-based video function.
Tray Timer management system for perfect timing from top shelf to bottom.
Cook&Hold: Automatically lowers the temperature at the end of cooking to combine cooking and holding in one process.
Delta-T cooking / LT cooking: Ultra-gentle cooking – including overnight.

easyDial – the user interface

EasyDial is the new standard in manual operation.
Thanks to the clever design of the easyDial controls you can quickly configure your own cooking profiles.
All the functions are available in one level. You can see everything at a glance at all times – even from a distance – on the large brightly-lit digital display with the central Convotherm-Dial (C-Dial) controls. The TriColor indicator ring indicates the current operating status: yellow for “in preparation”, red for “in progress” and green for “ready”.

  • easyDial regenerating function: regenerate products to their peak level
  • 99 cooking profiles
  • C-Dial and TriColor: our new operating philosophy

Integral preheat bridge
Fitted as standard in all Convotherm 4 floor-standing appliances:

  • Preheat bridge folds up automatically into the door frame
  • Rapid preheating even without loading trolley fitted
  • No heat loss
  • Improved safety

HygienicCare
The new concept in hygiene from Convotherm covers all main areas that come into contact with the user: the user panel, the door handle and recoil hand shower are made of an innovative material containing embedded silver ions

  • All the contact surfaces at the centre of operations are now logically included in the hygiene concept
  • Permanent antibacterial action
  • Reduces the transfer of bacteria

Performance

Your cooking results in focus

The ACS+ system ensures peak cooking performance in all Convotherm 4 appliances. It guarantees perfect steam saturation, automatic humidity adjustment in combi-steam cooking and fast, even heat transfer for convection. This delivers an ideal, constant environment in the cooking chamber for all products, from vegetables through meat and fish to side dishes or baked goods, whether fresh, frozen or precooked. Even when the combi steamer is fully loaded, you achieve consistently excellent results: evenly cooked, succulent and crispy.

Our ACS system works like a pan lid, keeping heat and moisture in the combi steamer so that the temperature rises rapidly and less power and water are required.

The new ACS+ system can do even more: it uses smart active control of air input and output. After all, if you want to reduce a sauce, you take the lid off the pan.

New and improved functions in ACS+

Crisp&Tasty
In convection mode you can produce food that is tender inside yet super-crispy outside in minimum time.

  • 5 levels of moisture removal
  • All 5 levels can be set manually or programmed

Fan speed

For unbeatable results, even with the most sensitive products such as pastry puffs:

  • Fan speeds – 5 levels provided
  • Permanently programmable if required
  • Perfectly consistent results, even when combi steamer is fully loaded

BakePro

Select the right amount of added moisture for your food items in convection mode and the Convotherm will add the required rest time period automatically.

  • Traditional baking function in 5 stages Steaming and resting produce baking results as good as the traditional baker’s oven
  • No need to defrost frozen baked goods before baking
  • Programmable, including multi-stage baking profiles

HumidityPro

In addition to automatic control, this new function lets you control the moisture level manually in combi-steam mode from as low as 30°C, precise to suit your personal preference:

  • 5 moisture-level settings
  • Super-succulent dishes cooked precisely to your requirements
  • No need to enter percentages
  • Also ideal for holding food

Cooking functions in ACS+

Steam: particularly effective steam-cooking from 30°C to 130°C, with the system remaining closed throughout the process. For optimum results including vegetables, dough products and fish. Retains vitamins and colour and minimises oxidation.

Combi-steam: from 30°C with automatic moisture regulation. The system remains closed throughout cooking. Retains the intrinsic moisture and flavours of the products. You achieve particularly tender, succulent and tasty cooking results while minimising weight loss.

Convection: from 30°C, the intrinsic moisture of the products in the fully closed system produces a slightly humid atmosphere for rapid, even heat transfer right into the centre of the food. You can selectively adjust the crust and crispness to suit your requirements by simply enabling the Crisp&Tasty function.

Regenerating with easyDial: You can regenerate your products precisely as if freshly cooked.
Regenerate+ easyTouch: versatile regenerating function with preselect for à la carte, plate banquet and buffet. The way to optimum quality.

Mixed load
The legendary art of the closed system: combi-steaming a mixture of food, for instance roast pork, croissants, fish, frozen vegetables and a Madeira cake, simultaneously with no transfer of flavour.

Achieving optimum results and maximum value:

  • More flexibility in kitchen procedure
  • Thanks to automatic moisture regulation in ACS+ combi-steaming each product receives the right amount of moisture

Full loads
Each appliance size has its own tailor-made suction panel delivering uniform air distribution, which guarantees consistent browning of the product even when the combi steamer is fully loaded:

  • New software algorithms, customised solid-state relay technology, latest air-flow engineering and optimised heat exchangers ensure the fastest thermal response times and bring the cooking chamber rapidly up to the required temperature, even when fully loaded with frozen products
  • The new Crisp&Tasty function draws most of the moisture out of the cooking chamber for fast and reliable roasting and grilling – even when cooking difficult food such as marinated meat

ecoCooking*
The energy-save function is ideal for food with long cooking times such as roasts, joints of beef and large roasting joints:

  • Energy savings of up to 25% compared with DIN18873-1.
  • The especially gentle cooking process actually improves the product quality ecoCooking can be activated at 30°C and above for convection and combi-steam cooking
