RATIONAL’s latest generation of cooking systems deliver a commercial kitchen’s complete thermal cooking solutions. They replace a large range of cooking appliances and replicate a huge range of cooking processes while saving space and reducing cooking times and energy consumption.
The new iCombi Pro delivers 50% higher productivity while reducing cooking times and energy consumption by 10% compared to its predecessor. Similarly, the new iVario Pro refines the original VarioCookingCenter to deliver 20% additional searing capacity and maintenance-free pressure cooking that is up to 35% faster than cooking without pressure, while reducing connected load compared to the previous version.
The iCombi Pro includes four intelligent assistants that control every aspect of operation. This makes it simple to cook different products at the same time, as well as managing when they are ready. The cleaning system provides a fast 12 minute interim clean that reduces downtime between loads as well as calculating the optimum overnight clean at the end of the day.
The iVario Pro includes iZoneControl, which lets users define different heat zones in the pans. The iVarioboost heating system uses ceramic heating elements and advanced energy management systems to give not just quick heating times – only 2.5 minutes to get up to searing temperature – but the power it needs to handle large quantities of product without missing a beat.
RATIONAL’s ConnectedCooking network management system enables operators to customise recipes and cleaning schedules as well as providing comprehensive operating data, including HACCP. It also allows service personnel and managers to monitor the operation of the cooking system, and will send an alert should anything be required. This combination of technologies – the iCombi Pro, iVario Pro and ConnectedCooking - is what Rational calls iKitchen, because it delivers the total cooking solution for the modern commercial kitchen.
