Business & Industry catering.

Production without compromises.


Something nobody can afford.

Staff catering, hospital, retirement home, event catering, different customer groups, different foods and still the same challenges: Skills shortages, standardisation, flexible mealtimes, special diets and cost pressures. At the same time, the food has to be fresh, balanced and innovative. The kitchen has to also keep up and be flexible and also produce intelligently. With a system that thinks, is experienced, learns, and forgets nothing. Which needs little space but still achieves a lot at the same time. Like the iCombi Pro.

The goal: To become even more productive and more flexible. Without losing sight of the quality.

The new standard.

Limited space. More output.

A big promise. At first glance this seems to be a paradox, however it makes sense when using an intelligent cooking system. A cooking system that covers over 90 % of all conventional cooking applications. That is intelligent. That is easy to operate. That has been developed for large quantities. That reliably delivers the same result time and time again. That knows the hygiene requirements. More productivity, more flexibility, more reliability.

What do you get out of it? All kinds of freedom, and the certainty of reaching your goals. Exactly as you imagine.

Be prepared for anything.

Ensuring that everything runs smoothly.

Buffet, menu, free flow - company catering is varied and demanding. A snack, a salad or pizza in between. To create customer experiences. A sophisticated high-en mise en place is all the more important. With a cooking system that is easy to use, takes on routine tasks, which produces the same quality time and time again and which works intelligently. Like the iCombi Pro. For gratins, chicken and vegetables. And if you use ConnectedCooking, you can even operate your cooking systems when out and about.

New perspectives: Reduce the workload, optimise your mise en plan and always serve consistently high quality.


What an intelligent kitchen can do.

Fresh, convenience, frozen. Meat, fish, poultry, side dishes and desserts. Cook & Chill, Cook & Hold, Cook & Serve. 100 or thousands of meals. The iCombi Pro 20-1/1 can make up to 160 cordon bleu in a single load. All browned just the same. With less fat than in conventional cooking appliances. Perfection in no time at all. In unrivalled quality, that is reproducible at any time.

The secret: The iCookingSuite, the cooking intelligence, which recognises the size, quantity and condition of the foods and adjusts the cooking parameters. The broccoli stays green, crunchy and full of vitamins, the pasta al dente and the turkey steak is juicy on the inside and with grill stripes on the outside. Also replenishment is just as simple: The iCombi Pro produces different foods at the same time. For different products, with the same quality.

In the iCombi Pro, you can create your own tried and tested intelligent cooking paths so that you can access them at any time. If the cooking system is connected via the RATIONAL networking solution ConnectedCooking, you can send the cooking paths with a click. For the same high quality on all cooking systems. Standardisation does not get easier than that.

Modern production: Great quantities, great quality. Simple to produce. Each and every time.

Health and well-being.

With vitamins you can taste.

With 95%* less fat, up to 40%* fewer calories, less food waste, less over-production and lower overheads. Plus more vitamins, colour, minerals and flavour. This is why the iCombi Pro cooks gently with 100% fresh steam. This is why it has so much power that none of the meat juices run and the minerals are preserved. This makes it so fast that it helps to retain vitamins.

Minimal food waste.

Achieve faster savings.

A variety of food in large quantities is required. It must be precise, delicious and healthy. Without producing unnecessary waste. Such as when Finishing in containers. The dishes are prepared, for example in the Cook & Chill process, then vacuum-packed or stored in a container in the cold store. This means you can purchase and produce in reserve. Then you can bring the foods that you need to serving temperature in the iCombi Pro when you need them. To ensure that you can serve crunchy, fresh vegetables full of vitamins, for example. Completely simple, completely safe, completely flexible. Because you can, of course, also prepare different products at the same time. Without any loss of quality. Quick and simple. The same applies to restocking.

This is how you benefit: Food always at the right temperature for service. Crunchy, fresh. Full of vitamins and colour. With low fat. Without overproduction.
