Limited service hotels.

Sophisticated concepts. More sales.

The daily challenge:

Impressing the guests.

Of course you know that the location and facilities of the hotel are important to their guests. That the price-performance ratio must be right. That this is both an attractive and competitive market. You therefore need to stand out from the competition. With an attractive F & B concept, for example. Although there is little space, staff or room for creativity.

Living a vision. Your concept of tomorrow, planned and implemented today.

Concept and planning.

Everything as you want.

Trends, ideas and customer requirements - all this is reflected in the concepts of RATIONAL. Concepts that are specially tailored to your core challenges. Regardless of whether you require support at one, or more locations.

"In the early shift, only two people now prepare breakfast for 300 guests."

Jens Hulek, Head of Food & Beverage, Premier Inn, Germany

Your advantage: Experienced contact, individual consultation and specific implementation.

Your personal food concept.


7 am, a full breakfast room, the guests are in a hurry, they have international cuisine requirements. The time frame is limited. So the iCombi Pro gets busy. As part of your food concept, and being responsible for the hot food components such as pancakes, omelettes and bacon on the breakfast buffet.

For one reason: Consistent quality. No matter who is operating the iCombi Pro.

In use all day.

You never know what will be ordered next.

Bread rolls, pizza, burgers, pastries, morning, lunch, afternoon, and evening. Always ready when your customers want it. Fast, uncomplicated and after a quick clean, it all looks as if nothing happened.


Generate extra business.

Expand your menu offering.

An exhausting day is coming to an end, a drink at the bar, a bite to eat - your guests will love this. Surprise them with chicken wings, mozzarella sticks, burgers, pizza and curries. Quick, reliable and prepared to your specifications. Whether at lunch or in the evening, fresh or convenience product.

It helps: Respond flexibly with intelligence. Including special requests.

Convenience products

Here too, the iCombi Pro never loses sight of the desired result and will adjust the settings independently. With the iProductionManager for example, which tells you when you can prepare your specified foods. So that your guests are served quickly, with precise perfection and always to the same standard of quality.


The iCombi Pro is so powerful that even frozen food is cooked in no time. Finally, the cooking system recognises the condition and size of the food and adjusts the cooking process accordingly. The result, everything is always consistently high quality.

Freshly cooked

Steak or fresh vegetables are normally a challenge for untrained staff. In the iCombi Pro, however, the cooking path is already created for this and many other products, so that it does it all by itself with its intelligence, there is nothing else to do in the kitchen.

The iCombi Pro.

Intelligent, flexible, on minimal space.

On less than approx. 1 m2, the iCombi Pro will show what you can do with a combination of heat and steam. For 2 or 200 guests. Ready-to-serve products, freshly cooked, frozen and convenience. Thanks to its cooking intelligence and its climate management, it is all done automatically. Precisely. With maximum loads. With mixed loads. No monitoring or checking required. 24 hours a day. So the iCombi Pro gives you outstanding food quality. Time and time again.

Essentially, the iCombi Pro only has one task: Reliably delivering consistent high quality 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 20 burger patties and regulates everything automatically. Or it supports you with time or energy-optimised production plans. For the best way to stock the breakfast buffet for example.

The goal: Everything to save time, energy and raw materials.

A worthwhile investment.

For the environment, the cash flow and your hotel.

Get an idea of the savings you can achieve by installing one or more iCombi Pro units. You will save a lot of space: Your kitchen can be up to 60 % smaller. Investment costs too: For the iCombi Pro, for example, there is the UltraVent Plus, which requires no external connection and eliminates the need for another ventilation system where the cooking system is installed. And the environment: Sustainable production and low energy consumption of the cooking system on the one hand. With less over-production, less consumption of fat and less working time on the other hand. Together this is a major plus for your cash account and the environment.

For the sake of the balance sheet. It saves a lot of money, as well as energy and water.

One cooking system.
