Efficient kitchen management.
Quality up. Costs down.

As a modern military canteen, you manage a daily balancing act between economic efficiency on one hand and the satisfaction of your diners and fellow soldiers on the other. Demand for a wide variety of tasty, healthy food is wide; budgetary limits are narrow.

The good news - there’s a way of boosting both quality and profitability while opening up new possibilities for healthy, delicious food your guests will enjoy. The key to it all: the SelfCookingCenter®.

Benefits for you at a glance:
  • Outstanding food quality at all times
  • Easy to operate even for untrained staff
  • Efficient production of even large quantities of food
  • Freshness and variety in food service
  • Banquets and buffets are child’s play
  • Automatic HACCP data storage
  • Minimum running costs

Your solution:
The SelfCookingCenter®.

Whether you’re doing Cook & Chill, Cook & Hold, or Cook & Serve, the SelfCookingCenter® ensures all-around efficient production, healthy and delicious food, and the peace of mind that comes with having all expenses securely under control.

You’ll have peace of mind when it comes to safety as well, since all HACCP data is automatically stored and made available for easy download.

Our motivation was and remains to make your work as easy as possible. That’s why we’ve equipped our new SelfCookingCenter® with four intelligent functions, making it into an assistant that stands for quality, ease of use and efficiency.

Customised operation according to your needs.

We all make errors. But very rarely with "MyDisplay". We have developed this function to reduce errors to a minimum when operating the SelfCookingCenter®. The principle is straightforward:

Using "MyDisplay" you can limit the range of appliance functions and options to specific processes and users. Only information that is relevant for your staff or the particular time of day will be displayed on the screen.

User error? Not a chance!

Automatic HACCP documentation.
Optimum hygiene safety.

In terms of hygiene, you can rest assured with the SelfCookingCenter®. The precise measurement and regulation of all cooking parameters means that every product is always cooked perfectly hygienically. You can provide full associated proof at any time:

All HACCP-relevant data – from cooking to hygienically perfect self-cleaning of the cooking cabinet by Efficient CareControl – is automatically recorded and saved for ten days in the SelfCookingCenter®. This data is available at the push of a button. It can also be archived via USB at any time. So, without additional effort or expense, you can have full security in the documentation of all relevant HACCP data.

Seamless data storage of HACCP data

KitchenManagement System.
Set quality standards.

Thanks to the KitchenManagement System, RATIONAL appliances can be managed directly from the PC. Quickly enter cooking procedures for your SelfCookingCenter® on the PC and send this information with a click of the button to all the appliances in the network. This even works when the appliances are used at different locations. This means weekly promotions, special-menu days and all the occasions that require new cooking processes can be adapted to and organised centrally with the minimum of effort.

"For me, the biggest challenge for the kitchens of the future is the technical structuring and standardisation of the processes. With RATIONAL to help me, I feel safe."
