Finishing in the SelfCooking Center.

Colin Hill Rational Over 2

Better than freshly cooked. Fresh cooking is usually associated with keeping food warm, e.g. in a holding cabinet or display cabinet. Keeping it warm means loss of quality. Finishing in the SelfCooking Center does away with the need to keep food warm - no matter whether your preparing 1, 10 or thousands or meals.

You start with the mise en place of all the requisite dishes whenever you have the time: in the morning, the afternoon, or a day beforehand. No more expensive temporary help or overtime. As soon as the food has been produced in the SelfCooking Center it is chilled thus halting further unwanted cooking. Food quality remains superb.

The chilled food is arranged on plates as required and takes only 8 minutes to heat to serving temperature in the SelfCooking Center - at the touch of a button. Condensate puddles on plates as well as dried out food belong finally to the past. You get plate after plate of consistently top quality food with no stress, even with a la carte service.

Spotless hygiene overnight.

It's fully automatic. Rational CleanJet sets new performance standards. The innovative circulation ensures spotless hygiene and low water consumption. Risks from the use of conventional cleaning liquids are now history. Special cleaners and rinse aids developed by Rational guarantee perfect health protection.

100% operating safety without expensive water softening units.

Say goodbye to unforeseen operating failures caused by limescale build-up. The patented CalcDiagnosis System continuously measures the limescale level in the steam generator, automatically taking account of both individual SelfCooking Center use and local water quality. Now there is no need to buy or maintain expensive water softening systems. No more leaving descaling until its too late, or doing it before it is really necessary - saving time and money.

Investment with increased profit margin.

Your Rational SelfCooking Center not only automatically recoups your investment in a very short time, but from day one it earns you more profit. By instantly cutting down on raw materials, energy, working hours, investment and space, it saves significantly more than it costs.
