In the 2015 awards for Best in Class by Operators, foodservice professionals rated manufacturers based on particular facets, and Rational was the category winner for combi ovens under the heavy equipment section.

Combi technology allows commercial foodservice operations to cook a variety of food items in one single appliance due to the fact that there are three cooking modes: steam, convection, and both combined. With the Rational combi, SelfCookingCenter 5 Senses, there is over 40 years of built-in cooking intelligence, which allows operators to simply define their desired result. In addition, the equipment will automatically clean and descale itself and also do this unsupervised overnight if needed.

“We are honored to receive the Best in Class by Operators award. Rational is not simply the company of chefs, but it is a company for chefs. By working closely with our customers, we are able to understand the market demands and transfer that knowledge to our research and development team, ultimately leading to an innovative solution for foodservice professionals,” states Markus Glueck, executive vice president of North America.
