External circumstances: small kitchen, limited budget, not enough staff or equipment. Internal attitude: high standards. This is where intelligent technology comes in. Technology that boils, braises, and fries. That works up to four times faster, using up to 40% less electricity than conventional equipment. That offers two pans, which means more options in the kitchen and on the plate. Fast, flexible, compact, perfect.
Plans, schedules, checklists - when it comes to mise en place, organization is everything. It helps make processes run smoothly and keeps everyone on task, which means better results. But then a supplier shows up, and suddenly your vegetables, pasta, or chocolate sauce are left alone on the stove. Now would be a good time to have someone available to help. The iVario 2-XS with iCookingSuite, for example. Braised dishes, delicate desserts, and sides turn out great even when you're not looking - it can prevent burning or boiling over. iVarioBoost ensures they’re cooked to just the right degree of doneness. And with AutoLift, your pasta will come out of the water automatically when it's ready.
Flexibility - because “normal” is the exception at restaurants. Meat, fish, vegetables. Rare, medium, well-done. Extra spicy, no salt. All immediately, all simultaneously, all fresh, all different. What you need in the kitchen now is speed, reliability, and efficiency. Which is where the iVario 2-XS comes in. Two pans - endless possibilities. Easy controls. Precise down to the exact degree. Different temperatures, different dishes, different times - never a problem. No extra kitchen equipment. No monitoring. Just reliably delicious results. And with the iZoneControl option, you can even divide the two pan bases into a total of four zones, for even more flexibility. iZoneControl is an option on the iVario 2-XS.
Our equipment is robust enough to withstand heavy use in a restaurant kitchen - whether it’s a pan, a basket, a stand, or a scoop. RATIONAL accessories are the only way for you to enjoy the full spectrum of exceptional features the iVario 2-XS offers.
The iVario 2-XS base price includes: An arm for automatic lifting and lowering functions, a boiling basket, frying basket, cleaning sponge and colander.
On a stand, in a station or on a table, the iVario 2-XS adapts to its surroundings. If you like, it can be available day and night for mise en place and à la carte. It’s a breeze to install, and thanks to its integrated water drain, you don’t need a loor drain trough, which means fewer slippery kitchen floors and improved work safety. The same goes for its other technological solutions to protect against burns, avoid back strain, and generally make life easier. Even deep-cleaning the entire kitchen is no problem with the iVario 2-XS: It meets the stringent requirements of the IPX5 standard.
Small, powerful, efficient, and space-saving. In a restaurant serving up to 100 meals per day, the iVario 2-XS can replace the tilting skillet, the kettle, and the deep-fryer. Or it can round out the kitchen island in your lunchroom. It’s a lot less expensive than you might think. But maybe your ideas are bigger (and so is your kitchen). Maybe you’re looking for functions like pressure cooking. If so, check out the XS’s big brothers - the iVario Pro in capacity sizes of 2 x 17 litres or 4.5 gallons, 100 litres or 26 gallons, 150 litres or 40 gallons.
