Because chefs the world over love our appliances.

With over 750,000 appliances on the market, 35,000 in the US alone, our appliances have become a standard feature in professional kitchens around the world. What we're particularly happy about is that 93% of our US and global customers attest that RATIONAL offers maximum customer benefit. (TNS Infratest 2016 Study). Definitely one reason why almost all of them would also recommend RATIONAL.

Our products stand out by providing the highest-quality cooking results, the greatest efficiency, the easiest operation and the best service in the industry.

Cooking power and quality.

The SelfCookingCenter® is in terms of performance, intelligence and efficiency a class by itself. It can help you cook significantly faster and more consistently than ever before, thanks to our patented HiDensityControl.

SelfCookingCenter maximum charging


Our SelfCookingCenter® is one of the most efficient appliances on the market. It provides high levels of productivity while also keeping resource consumption to a minimum.

You save on energy, water, time and raw ingredients and produce less waste. You’ll also enjoy up to 30% more kitchen space by having one small appliance that frees up or replaces 40 to 50% of all standard cooking appliances.

RATIONAL is the only manufacturer to meet the stringent Energy Star standards on every one of its appliances.



RATIONAL units are very easy to operate. Thanks to iCookingControl®, you can prepare a wide range of different dishes at the push of a button.

iCookingControl® detects food size and condition as well as load quantities, and makes all the necessary adjustments automatically, so that you’ll get the results you desire—regardless of who is operating the appliance.

The MyDisplay function makes it a piece of cake to adjust the controls to fit your needs. Anything you don’t need, you can simply remove from the display. This saves you training time and expenses, because even untrained staff can quickly learn to operate the unit without errors.

Intelligent cleaning.

Our intelligent Efficient CareControl function is the only automatic cleaning programme that detects grime and limescale automatically and removes them at the push of a button. Thanks to this optimised cleaning process, we can achieve incomparable cleanliness and hygiene, and maintain a cleaning quality-to-expense ratio unmatched throughout the industry.
