Published: 14th November 2023

Rational is famously synonymous with the combi-steamer, whilst their iVario isn't as well known, it's gaining popularity as a gamechanger in professional kitchens. Rational is inviting businesses who are curious about the iVario, to trial its benefits in their kitchens, for free, by participating in the TrialBlazer challenge.

This exciting free trial gives businesses the chance to have an iVario technologically advanced bratt pan installed and running in their kitchen for six weeks, backed by a tailor-made training and support package throughout the period. The trial is available on all iVario models, suited for hospitality and catering professional kitchens.

Alex Signorelli, owner/proprietor, Signorelli's Deli Ltd comments, "We decided to trial the iVario to expand our corporate catering opportunities. Following the trial, we were motivated to invest in the iVario due to the remarkable transformation it brought to our food offerings and the significant boost in kitchen productivity, all with minimal effort."

Throughout the six-week trial kitchen teams are supported by a Rational professional chef, in addition Rational be providing a full package of accessories. At the end of the six weeks trial the operator can hand the iVario back at no cost to them or may choose to purchase or lease the cooking system.

"The support provided during and after the loan period has been unbelievably wonderful, whether on the phone or in person. The equipment's efficiency for cooking larger batches and its versatile settings is superb. It outperforms cooking in pots on a commercial hob, and cleaning between batches is a breeze, and also takes up less space compared to a commercial hob, which is fantastic." says Robbie Mukherjee, owner/proprietor, MUCK a G’s Pie Company.
