LACA Show: Rational Shows new SelfCookingCenter combi steamer

Hilton Birmingham Metropole, 11 – 13 July 2012

Rational shows its new SelfCookingCenter®whitefficiency®at LACA 2012. Described as a “quantum leap forward” in terms of efficiency, output and cooking quality, the new model has 30% more capacity, in the same size cabinet, cuts energy consumption by up to 20% and cuts production time by up to 30% compared to previous models. It’s brilliantly simple to use, because it intelligently adjusts to the way each chef works. Plus, cooking results are ‘outstanding’.  

One of the unit’s new features is HiDensityControl, which not only delivers outstanding cooking quality but also allows chefs to maximise output. Another new technology, Efficient LevelControl®, makes it easier to cook mixed loads of different products. The established SelfCooking Control®and the recently launched CareControl®have also been upgraded and the whitefficiency model features an entirely new control panel. Collectively these features deliver a groundbreaking combi that is faster, more efficient, easier to use and more sustainable.

About Us

Rational invented combi-steaming in 1976. Now the company’s new SelfCookingCenter® is the world’s first commercial oven that takes over the whole cooking process, allowing the chef to get on with more important things, like creativity, presentation and quality control. The chef simply tells the oven what the food is – the SelfCookingCenter® does the rest. The oven will cook the food exactly how chef wants it, even with ‘low temperature’ cooking overnight. And it cooks up to 15% faster than conventional combi-steamers, saving time and money.
