Controlling your oven becomes pure pleasure ringing a familiar bell of the most exciting experiences offered by consumer electronics products. Simple, logical, innovative. Touch by touch. Slide by slide.

Main menu: gateaway to all programs and features

Initially, the display will indicate time and date. Upon your touch, the main menu will appear to allow you to set the time and date, as well as language – offering you a choice of 30 options. Main menu is also your gateway to the cooking program menu: from SIMPLEbake, AUTObake, MYbake, EXTRA and PRObake to STEPbake, a unique and patented feature, allowing you to set up to 3 cooking stages with different, fully customized settings. This is a true revolution in simple presetting.

SIMPLEbake: PLUS for the simplest way to your favourite dish

When the SIMPLEbake option is selected, nine photos appear on the interactive colour display, representing 9 categories of dishes that are most commonly cooked in the oven. Select the dish on the photo, estimate the weight and touch the START command – and the cooking begins! SIMPLEbake makes cooking truly simple.

AUTObake: Plus for a lavish choice of 65 preset dishes!

SIMPLEbake program offers 9 categories of most commonly prepared dishes while AUTObake offers a choice of 65 preset recipes including photos, checked with and approved by chefs and nutritionists. These programs will surely thrill even those not too enthusiastic about electronic controls, as they deliver excellent results to all who enjoy contemporary cooking methods but refuse to dwell on the details of cooking procedures – even complete beginners.

PRObake: PLUS for masters looking for total control

PRObake program, paired with the additional program called STEPbake, two unique features in the market, allow full use of your cooking experience. Professionals and skilled amateurs may choose all settings themselves. You may use the oven in the conventional way you are used to. But the innovative display allows even more - cooking in several steps!

STEPbake: PLUS for cooking in accurately defined steps

Innovative, patent protected STEPbake system allows setting up to 3 subsequent combinations. The settings used in combination with your own PRObake choices do not have to be changed during the cooking procedure; rather, you may define them in advance! For example, you can start with low temperature, then step up to high, and finish with medium; you may want all heaters to work at the beginning. By selecting the heaters, temperature, and cooking time, you will make your dishes as you like them, done to your taste. The settings currently effective in the oven are always displayed and when the food is ready iChef+ only wishes you Bon Appétit!

MYbake: Plus for recreating your most successful combinations

MYbake program makes sure the dishes cooked to your taste are the same each time, using the same steps and settings. The program you have set up may be stored in the oven memory to be retrieved next time you need it. You may save the most commonly used settings and combinations for your favourite cooking method.

EXTRA programs: Plus for the right help at any time

Also to mention EXTRA program which includes features like Cleaning+, Defrost+, Probe+ (allowing use of a meat probe), and various alternative uses of heating such as Preheat+, Warming+ (for keeping cooked food warm), or Serving+ (to heat your plates).
