SelfCookingCenter and VarioCookingCenter join forces for outstanding live cooking demo.

Rational chefs put market-leading multifunctional appliances through their paces


Stand 1210, Hotelympia, 5th – 8th March 2018, London ExCel

At Hotelympia’s Professional Kitchen Show 2018 visitors will experience the latest SelfCookingCenter and VarioCookingCenter as chefs demonstrate their multifunctional capacities on stand 1210.  Rational will also show how its range of specialist accessories can enhance cooking results and make life easier for the kitchen brigade.  They include the Multibaker, the grill and pizza tray and the cross and stripe grill grate.

The connected kitchen is the future – that’s why Rational now offers ConnectedCooking 2.0. This allows users to link their SelfCookingCenters and VarioCookingCenters to a network, and monitor operation remotely. They can also program multiple units, all at the same time.

Rational‘s expert chefs will show how easy it is to prepare different meal occasions with the SelfCookingCenter and VarioCookingCenter, offering samples and live cooking demonstrations.

Also being demonstrated will be the VarioMobil, an accessory for the VarioCookingCenter that makes it very easy to transport food cooked in the unit.

Visitors will be able to see how a kitchen with a SelfCookingCenter and a VarioCookingCenter can cook everything that a modern foodservice operation requires – from a minimal footprint, using less energy than conventional appliances.

RATIONAL is the leading provider in hot food preparation equipment and, with the SelfCookingCenter and VarioCookingCenter, the company delivers all a commercial kitchen’s thermal cooking requirements.  Together, the two appliances offer the best cooking solutions.  For information and brochures, or to come to a free SelfCookingCenter Live or VarioCookingCenter Live demonstration, call +44 (0)1582 480388, freephone 0800 389 2944 or visit
