The SelfCookingCenter®
The perfect cooking system for your hotel.

The SelfCookingCenter® can reduce workloads on numerous specialty appliances—such as convection ovens, tilting fryers, rotisseries, boilers, deep-fryers, and steamers—or even replace those appliances entirely. You can use it to grill, roast, bake, steam, stew, blanch, poach, and much more, all within less than 11 ft² (around 1 m²). Read on to find out how RATIONAL products can help you with your day-to-day routine.

Potential uses:
  • Breakfast and brunch
  • Greater variety in snacks and bar food
  • Room service without additional staff
  • Fine dining à la carte
  • Finishing® for banquets and buffets

Breakfast and brunch.
Made easy.

Surprise your diners with delicious variety, starting right from the breakfast buffet. Oven-fresh rolls and croissants, crisp bacon, juicy sausage, and scrambled eggs that taste fresh from the pan—with iLevelControl, you can prepare a wide variety of baked goods and buffet options in rolling mixed batches. Just use the preset Breakfast shopping cart.

RATIONAL’s specially developed accessories help you start the day’s production effortlessly: with the Multibaker, for example, you can make 80 fried eggs in just 90 seconds.

A variety of snacks and bar food.
All at the same time and always at the right time.

The SelfCookingCenter® allows you to prepare a wide variety of tasty snacks and bar food at the same time in a single appliance. Within just 11 ft² (1 m²) of space, you’ve got a multifunctional roasting and grilling station that makes the majority of your grilling and roasting pans simply superfluous. Cooking surfaces are arranged vertically rather than spread out across the kitchen.

A wealth of snack options

Room service without additional staff.
Be there for your guests around the clock.

Let your hotel guests start their days with a leisurely breakfast in their rooms, or enjoy lunch or dinner in a private setting. You’ll be able to serve them everything from snacks to four-course meals in their rooms at any time of day or night.

With the SelfCookingCenter®, you can offer 24-hour room service without bringing in additional staff. Just use the benefits of Finishing® for your room service as well: Plate your room service selections and store them chilled until they’re needed. Then use Finishing® in the SelfCookingCenter® to bring them up to serving temperature in just eight minutes. Your meals will reach your guests’ rooms on hot plates, fresh and delicious.

Ordered. Served!

Ordered. Served!

Fine dining à la carte.
Top quality with Finishing®

In à la carte service, it’s all about getting good-quality food to the table quickly, at a competitive price. Finishing® is the perfect solution for doing just that. Prepare even complex dishes perfectly, with both love and efficiency, and have them ready for service just minutes after the order comes in.

Make event catering child’s play.
Finishing® for banquets and buffets.

Whether you’re doing a plated banquet or a buffet, Finishing® meals in the SelfCookingCenter® ensures that they will always reach the table fresh and delicious, while saving you money as well.

Simply prepare food in advance, when you have more time. If chilled quickly, it will remain fresh even after several days. For plated service, prepare as many plates as you need and store them chilled in special mobile plate racks. Just before you need the food, use Finishing® to get twenty plates or two thousand ready for service at the same time, with no stress and no need for additional staff.

It makes buffets child’s play, too. Just produce food in advance, chill it in serving containers, and use Finishing® in the SelfCookingCenter® to bring it up to serving temperature quickly and easily.
