Rational has launched the iKitchen concept, an evolution of its total thermal cooking solutions combined with its ConnectedCooking digital technology.
Connected cooking networks Rational appliances into a smart kitchen, with remote control, service maintenance, recipe sharing and automatic software downloads.
The manufacturer believes the multifunctional combination of the SelfCookingCenter and VarioCookingCenter provides consistent high quality results, on a compact footprint.
ConnectedCooking networks these appliances into a smart kitchen, allowing operators to respond to any kitchen situation. They are also aimed at 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 is designed to adapt to the size of a kitchen and make 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.
Rational has also introduced a series of iKitchen events throughout the rest of the year for operators. This will involve a Rational chef cooking using a combi oven, the SelfCookingCenter, alongside the VarioCookingCenter.
This will show how, in tandem, the two appliances can provide flexibility, high volumes of food with quality results from a compact footprint, and how being networked with ConnectedCooking can deliver all the cooking processes that a modern kitchen requires.
