Preschools and schools are reevaluating things. Pasta, chips and pizza are increasingly considered outdated choices, as they have too much fat, too much sugar and are too unhealthy. It's all about new ideas - the menu now includes vegetables, wholegrain products and lean meat. This is because healthy nutrition is the basis for healthy development. At the same time the menu choices have to be delicious. in spite of having a low budget, experiencing staff shortages and a minimal working space. Intelligent technology will support this by taking on work, thinking with you and producing the desired results time and time again.
A big promise. At first glance this seems to be a paradox, however it makes sense when using two intelligent cooking systems. With two intelligent cooking systems that cover over 90% of all conventional cooking applications. Which are intelligent. Which have the same simple operating system. Which are simple to use. Which have been developed for large quantities. Which can produce enormous variety. Which reliably deliver the same results time and time again. Which meet the hygiene requirements.
Essentially, the iCombi Pro only has one task: reliably delivering consistently good results. It is therefore equipped with a whole lot of intelligence and impresses with productivity, simplicity and quality. For example, it recognises whether it is going to cook one or 200 chicken escalopes and regulates everything automatically. Or it supports you with time or energy-optimised production plans. For optimal additional production, for example.
Intelligent technology - boiling, frying and deep-frying in a single cooking system. Fast and also precise. Food is prepared separately yet cost-effectively. Superb quality with few staff. Large kitchens need to reconcile conflicting needs in order to remain economical. Just like the new iVario Pro, which brings precision, productivity, speed and flexibility to your production.
The iCombi Pro and the iVario Pro are self-explanatory and can easily be operated error-free after just a brief induction even by untrained staff. Tailored to your own food concept or one created by RATIONAL, we will train you and your employees so that everything works smoothly and only desired results are produced.
