test drive a Rational for the chance to win oneRational will be putting the new SelfCookingCenter 5 Senses through its paces on Stand 17U50 at GLEE 2014. Expert Rational chefs will demonstrate to visitors the versatility of the new SelfCookingCenter combi steamer, by cooking a range of items suitable for café menus. Also, visitors will get a chance to taste everything that is cooked to experience the superior cooking quality of the Rational.

The new SelfCookingCenter 5 Senses is the first intelligent commercial cooking appliance that actually interacts with chefs, getting to know the way they work so that together, the chef and their combi can always deliver the best possible cooking results. The SelfCookingCenter 5 Senses can cook everything from pastries and pizza to pan-fried fish – all at the touch of a button, and all with perfect results.

At the heart of the new combi is the interactive cooking control (iCookingControl) technology. This ensures food is prepared exactly the way the chef wants, by monitoring, controlling and adjusting temperature, time, air speed and the cooking climate – that is, the balance of dry heat and steam.  The iCookingControl features a monitor that enables the chef to see exactly what is happening, at any time.

On the stand, the Rational chefs will show how the SelfCookingCenter 5 Senses’ iLevelControl feature enables chefs to cook mix loads. The iLevelControl feature not only shows kitchen staff which foods can be cooked at the same time, adjusting the time for each shelf according to the amount of food loaded and factors such as how long the door is opened during the cooking process, but also ensures each is prepared using the chef’s preferred specifications and cooking methods.

The new Rational SelfCookingCenter 5 Senses has been developed to make cooking as simple and reliable as possible, allowing garden centres to expand their menu options.  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%, ideal for kitchens where space is at a premium.

At the end of the day, the SelfCookingCenter even cleans itself. The SelfCookingCenter 5 Senses features an upgraded automatic cleaning system, called Efficient CareControl. It uses reformulated cleaning tablets that last 50% longer than previous versions, reducing costs and minimising environmental impact.
