The latest software for Frima’s hi-tech VarioCooking Center includes new cooking processes, advanced HACCP logging and a new control panel display that’s even more intuitive and user-friendly than before.  Best of all, the upgrade is not only available on all new Frima units, it can also be downloaded, for free, onto existing VarioCooking Centers, so owners of older models can benefit from the upgrades.  Frima UK is part of Rational UK and the download is available from

“Our free software upgrades guarantee that our customers can have the latest software on their VarioCooking Center at all times,” says Simon Lohse, managing director of Rational UK.  “It ensures they continue to benefit from new developments, even if they purchased their unit in previous years. Our aim is to give maximum customer satisfaction throughout the whole life of the product.”

The software upgrade features new, optimised cooking processes that facilitate food production and guarantee top results. There are also brand new cooking processes – they include one for preparing fish and seafood in sauce and another for cooking doughnuts and fritters.  The VarioCooking Center automatically controls the temperature and the cooking process, sounding an alert to let chefs know when their involvement is required, so nothing ever burns or overcooks.

The enhanced HACCP feature means that not only are changes in temperature logged, but the temperatures are also logged at least every 30 minutes, regardless of whether or not they have changed.  This helps to provide a better understanding of the cooking process.

The new display design for the touch control panel has a more modern feel with clear icons and simplified graphics.  “Chefs will find it even easier and quicker to use than before,” says Simon.
