Sample the Superior Cooking Quality of the Rational at EAT Expo 2014

Stand 29, 19th-20th March, Trinity Park Showground, Ipswich

Rational will be putting the new SelfCookingCenter whitefficiency through its paces on Stand 29 at EAT Expo 2014. Expert Rational chefs will show visitors how the SelfCookingCenter whitefficiency combi steamer can perfectly roast meats overnight, as well as perfectly baking and grilling other menu items –all at the touch of a button, and all with outstanding results. Also, visitors will get a chance to taste everything that is cooked to experience the superior cooking quality of the Rational.

For mixed loads, clever features like Efficient LevelControl tell the user which foods can be cooked together, adjusting the time for each shelf according to the amount of food loaded and how often, and for how long, the door is opened during the cooking process. It even alerts the chef when each shelf is ready.

With HiDensityControl every item loaded, from the front of the top shelf to the back of the bottom shelf, is cooked perfectly, with absolutely consistent quality. A powerful steam generator and dynamic air mixing match the air flow and humidity to the cooking requirements of the product. This means cooking time is reduced and optimised.

Because it is multifunctional, a SelfCookingCenter saves space, in fact it can replace 40 to 50% of standard appliances, reducing the kitchen footprint by at least 30%. Options such as the Ultravent condensation hood, which eliminates unwanted cooking fumes and steam, can do away with the need for extra, expensive extraction systems, making it possible to site the combi steamer front of house.

The latest Rational SelfCookingCenter whitefficiency has up to 30% more capacity, cuts energy consumption by up to 20% and reduces production times by up to 30%, compared to previous models.

The SelfCookingCenter whitefficiency control panel simplifies operating the new combi steamer because it constantly learns and automatically adjusts to the habits of the individual user. Meanwhile the ‘MyDisplay’ feature allows the display to be tailored by the chef. For example, any functions that are not needed can be removed from the display interface, keeping controls simple so that even untrained staff can produce the best possible results.  

What’s more, at the end of the working day the SelfCookingCenter whitefficiency automatically cleans itself. All operators have to do is pop in a couple of cleaning tabs, when the unit instructs them to do so, and the Rational CareControl cleaning system does the rest – delivering just the right amount of cleaning to produce a sparkling clean interior ready for the next batch of cooking.

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.
