Rational invented combi-steaming in 1976. Now the company’s 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.

Rational’s SelfCookingCenters are renowned for simplifying the cooking process – delivering perfectly cooked food quickly, efficiently and fully automatically. With a market share of around 60% of the UK combi oven market and being the manufacturer of over half the combi ovens sold worldwide, a Rational is a ‘must have’ piece of kit in any professional kitchen.
