iKitchen: Open up new horizons with RATIONAL

Following last year’s successful Tomorrow’s Kitchen concept and events, Rational is launching iKitchen. The new venture is an evolution of Rational’s total thermal cooking solution concept combined with their ConnectedCooking digital technology. Connected cooking networks the Rational appliances into a smart kitchen, with remote control, service maintenance, recipe sharing and automatic software downloads.

Costly and space-inefficient kitchen equipment is a relic of the past. The multi functional combination of the SelfCookingCenter and VarioCookingCenter provides consistent high quality results, on a compact footprint. ConnectedCooking networks these appliances into a smart kitchen delivering a complete and reliable solution, allowing operators to respond to any kitchen situation. Providing increased flexibility in the kitchen, whilst saving money, time, space and energy.

‘iKitchen’ is the system solution consisting of the SelfCookingCenter, VarioCookingCenter and ConnectedCooking, which adapts to the size of a kitchen and making it more productive. The two cooking systems complement each other in their cooking methods, sharing some of the workload and therefore are flexible in their use. With ConnectedCooking, Rational’s networking solution, the kitchen turns digital, managing and transferring cooking programs, accessing HACCP data and much more via PC, tablet or mobile.

Operators and chefs are invited to attend iKitchen events. A Rational chef will cook using a combi oven, the SelfCookingCenter, alongside the VarioCookingCenter. They will show how, in tandem, the two appliances provide flexibility, high volumes of food with consistently high quality results from a compact footprint, and how being networked with ConnectedCooking will deliver all the cooking processes that a modern kitchen requires.

Adam Knights is marketing director at Rational. “The events demonstrate how connected modern multi functional appliances deliver a complete and reliable solution, allowing a food service operation to respond any kitchen situation,” he says. “ We will show how the latest cooking technology brings benefits to every part of the catering industry, the flexibility of multi functional appliances means caterers can future-proof their kitchen, making it easy to adapt to changing menus.”

Each iKitchen event will showcase how by being connected provides increased flexibility in the kitchen and a truly sustainable, environmentally aware kitchen solution that protects the future, saving energy, reducing food wastage and increasing productivity.

There are six iKitchen events, running from May to November. They are free to attend, however places are limited, so it’s wise to book early. They are:
