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.
Safety is increased since the need to reach over an oven door to remove food has been eliminated. I’m sure this oven will join the other ADA approved models in Gaggenau’s line up.
If there is a power outage and food is still inside, the oven door can be opened manually. Gaggenau cautions to wait until the oven is cool to avoid risk if burning oneself.
