October 16, 2005 Isn’t it silly that when you see a good design you woinder why people haven’t thought of it before. That was the reaction we had when we first saw the latest oven from Siemens - an oven with a completely new design that’s very easy to operate, remarkably energy efficient and creates space-saving possibilities for kitchen designers. The liftMatic mounts on the wall like a cabinet and is filled from below. With the liftMatic, food is always at eye level. Professionals and hobby cooks no longer have to stoop, and they can reach the cooked food from three sides. With the push of a button, the oven floor moves gently down and then returns to the upper position. If it meets an obstruction in the process, such as a pot or a glass below it, the oven floor automatically stops.
