MKN is revolutionising the professional kitchen with two new products which promise to change the way you work. Allow us to introduce FlexiChef and FlexiCombi.

First up, the new FlexiChef multi-functional appliance including SpaceClean, the first and only fully automatic cleaning system for professional cooking pans.

The new FlexiChef redefines versatility, performance and speed, from cooking to frying to deep-frying, making almost anything possible with enhanced speed and efficiency.   

The groundbreaking and unique SpaceClean fully automatic cleaning technology makes it possible to clean the pan fully automatically in just two minutes, with minimal water consumption of just 26 litres and without any chemicals.

Eliminate large quantities of cleaning water and put an end to time-consuming, manual cleaning of pans with fully automatic and effortless cleaning – now with no set-up process at all, because the cleaning head is integrated directly into the lid. 

The new FlexiChef is not only fast – up to 10% faster than its predecessor – it also offers smart cooking thanks to the MagicPilot operating system with Guided Cooking, so even inexperienced users can effortlessly achieve the desired results.

Another highlight is the SmartBoiling function, which can reduce energy consumption by up to 99% compared with conventional water boiling, to support carbon reduction and save costs.

The new FlexiChef includes the easy Up & Down lift system, which allows baskets to be lowered into and raised out of the pan effortlessly and safely. It is also WiFi-enabled and can be linked to the MKN Connected Kitchen system, with interfaces for integration into other kitchen control systems.

MKN is known for its innovation and quality in professional cooking technology. The German company, based in Wolfenbüttel, is represented in over 100 countries worldwide with around 600 employees.

Key features in the new MKN FlexiChef:

  • The new SpaceClean fully automatic cleaning technology 
  • Up to 10% faster than the previous model
  • Easy Up & Down lift function
  • WiFi-enabled

Next up, MKN has set new standards in commercial kitchens with the launch of the new FlexiCombi combi steamer. 

The new FlexiCombi is significantly faster to operate than its predecessor, delivering an updated design and a new innovative lighting concept that optimally illuminates the interior, even when the door is open. This not only offers better visibility, but also increases safety for kitchen staff. 

The revised operating system enables even faster handling, while the proven FlexiRack capacity concept continues to offer over 50% more capacity than appliances using conventional GN1/1 size. The crosswise insertion ensures clarity, stability and increased work safety.

The FlexiCombi combines these new outstanding performance features with unique innovations such as the hygienic cooking cabinet door, the WaveClean automatic cleaning system and DynaSteam, which automatically adjusts the steam volume to optimise cooking results and water efficiency. 

The MKN Guided Cooking concept with MagicPilot operating system guides the user through the entire cooking process and thus guarantees perfect, reproducible results every time, even if there is no trained chef nearby.

The FlexiCombi is the result of continuous research and development, giving operators the highest standards of performance, efficiency and sustainability whilst further improving workflows in professional kitchens.
