Experience the unprecedented ease that brings sheer cooking pleasure into the kitchen. Gaggenau introduces the 24-inch lift oven with the LiftMatic function for unique oven loading and unloading. With the simple push of a button, the lift oven s glass ceramic base lowers directly from the oven to the countertop, where food dishes can be easily loaded and then raised into the cooking cavity. Since heat rises, the heat remains in the oven cavity, resulting in minimal energy loss during the lift operation. The lift oven s functionality increases safety, as the need to reach into a hot oven to remove food has been eliminated. This fully integrated oven features 11 heating methods, including convection. The oven also provides automatic temperature recommendation and precise electronic temperature control plus the highly effective pyrolytic self-cleaning program that burns off splashes and residues left behind by cooked food. The oven is encased in a sleek stainless steel-tinted glass front, illuminated by halogen lighting that provides a luminous view of the interior, displaying perfectly prepared food. The innovative design of the lift oven with built-in placement in top cabinet locations or on a kitchen wall provides versatile options for smaller kitchens and opens up additional cabinet space in larger kitchens.
