Create worlds of enjoyment.

The goal, every day:

satisfied customers.

Discount chains, online ordering services, organic grocery stores, farmers’ markets - traditional supermarket retail is under pressure from all sides. Unique selling points are crucial. New ideas, new concepts, new features. Focused on the future. To encourage customers to linger longer. Multi-faceted approaches. Creating expectations and then fulfilling them. With a bistro, with street food, with a hot deli counter. For lunch, for home, for meals on-the-go. Consistently, reliably delicious every time. Restaurant-quality food. Even if you’re not a chef. Even though trained staff are hard to find. Because you’ve got an expert partner in your corner: RATIONAL.

The recipe: Sophisticated concepts, implemented professionally - so you’ll generate more customer loyalty and more sales.

Consultation and concept design.

From tough competition to great sales.

Cookie-cutter concepts rarely work. Which is why we emphasize individual consultation. Tailored to the questions that matter to you. Focused on your needs. Whether it’s for one supermarket or a chain. Whether you want help in one area or several. Because your success doesn’t hinge on pizza and potato salad - it hinges on having comprehensive concepts and high standards of quality. And maintaining them consistently.

How does that benefit you? Experienced partners, individual consultation, reliable implementation.

Get inspired.

Because your supermarket can do more than you think.

Grab-and-go, bakery, hot food counters, rotisserie? Centralized production or decentralized? What’s located where? What’s right for which location? For your customers? Get inspired. Discover new ideas and let us show you some examples. RATIONAL has the knowledge and experience - whether it’s for kitchen concepts, food production, or the food retail industry.

A good example: Flexible production, a range of options, exceptional quality, more customers.

The iCombi Pro.

So your supermarket will be equipped for anything.

When it comes down to it, the iCombi Pro only has one job: reliably delivering the same great results every single time. That’s why it’s equipped with so much intelligence - and why it offers such impressive productivity, quality, and simplicity. It detects whether you’re making one burger patty or 20, and adjusts its own parameters automatically. It helps you optimize your production schedule for speed or energy consumption - to keep your hot food counter stocked perfectly, for example.

The goal: Doing everything possible to help you save time, energy, and raw materials.

The capabilities of intelligent kitchens.


Fresh, convenience, frozen. American, European, Asian. Meat, fish, poultry, sides, desserts. For a hundred people or several thousand. In concrete numbers: The iCombi Pro 20 half size can prepare up to 160 servings of chicken cordon bleu in a single load. And every one will turn out browned exactly the same. Done to perfection in the blink of an eye. With a lot less oil than you’d need with conventional cooking appliances. Incomparably delicious results you can repeat over and over again. What’s the secret? The iCookingSuite, the cooking intelligence that detects the quantity, size, browning, and condition of the food, and adjusts cooking parameters accordingly. So your broccoli stays crisp, green, and full of nutrients, while your turkey burgers come out juicy inside, with perfect grill marks outside.

You can store your own tried-and-true programs to the iCombi Pro and access them at any time. If your cooking system is networked via ConnectedCooking, you can transmit your programs to other systems with just a click, and get the same high-quality results anywhere on the network. Standardization has never been easier.

Modern production: Quality in quantity. Easy to produce. Again and again.

Best-sellers, fast movers, perennial favorites.

Prepared fresh and sold immediately.

Crispy, juicy, golden-brown roast chicken – the king of to-go dishes. Now ready in half the time*. Thanks to iDensityControl’s intelligent climate management. Thanks to the iCookingSuite, which knows the way to perfect results. Thanks to the iProductionManager, which ensures that you’ll always have fresh food ready to serve. With no overproduction. And not just chicken - it’s perfect for roast pork, meatloaf, or brisket.

*Compared to a conventional rotary grill.

Experience the difference: Efficient production, unmatched quality, less cooking losses, reduced risk of user error. A hot food counter in record time. So that nobody has to wait.

Everything’s fresh.

Everything’s available. All a matter of organization.

The initial morning rush has passed; time to start producing extra batches. The challenge is producing just enough food - not too much, not too little - so that you’re always serving fresh. And it’s also time for tasty treats like wraps, sandwiches, cookies and muffins. Juggling all of that requires some real organizational skill. Which is where the iProductionManager comes in. It lets you know which foods you can prepare together, and proposes production plans optimized for time or energy consumption. Frozen foods, fresh dough, small pastries, large baked goods, one tray, several trays... No problem. Start the cooking path you want. That’s it. For standardized batch production, for great results on mixed loads. Even in the front area. Because the iCombi Pro has its own extraction hood that makes ventilation systems unnecessary.

It doesn't get any easier: Set yourself apart from the pack, and truly spoil your customers. Without extra equipment.

Be consistent.

Make the process easier.

Keep a cool head when work turns up the heat. When you need a variety of dishes in large quantities. Or when you’re producing centrally for decentralized sales. With Cook & Chill, for example. It lets you prepare your hot meal components in the iCombi Pro, chill them rapidly, and store them. That way, you can purchase in bulk and prepare food well in advance. That way, you can bring food up to serving temperature when you need it. That way, you can produce your own line of convenience foods for your cold deli counter. That way, you can produce extra batches as necessary. It’s quick and straightforward. And taste, nutrients, color, and texture are all perfectly preserved.

Great quality sells itself. Starting now, you’ll always have the right quantities of fresh, safe, delicious food ready to serve. Hot or cold.

Always ready for its closeup.

With best-in-class hygiene.

Hygienic interim cleaning in around 12 minutes, or sparkling deep cleaning any time (even overnight) - the iCombi Pro’s iCareSystem handles it all. Simple and safe thanks to phosphate-free cleaner tabs. With a cleaning system that remembers your preferences and starts your favorite program automatically next time around. And with a wide range of installation options to facilitate cleaning, everything stays hygienic under and around the cooking system as well.

Play it safe: The iCombi Pro is easy to keep clean. So you’ll feel good in the kitchen. And have more time for your customers.

Sustainability conserves resources and saves money. Here at RATIONAL, energy-efficient production and logistics, retrieval of old appliances, and raising the energy conservation bar are all par for the course. And with the iCombi Pro, sustainability will become just as self-evident in your kitchen: compared to conventional kitchen equipment, you’ll save energy, reduce your raw materials usage, and decrease overproduction, all while preparing healthier food.
