Rational iCombi Classic 1

Rational has unveiled the replacement for its popular CombiMasterPlus model – the iCombi Classic.

The launch is the second new product that Rational has rolled out in the space of a week, following the earlier announcement of the iCombi Pro.

The iCombi Classic promises high cooking quality for those offering a simpler menu with less demanding options.

Up to 100 individual cooking programs can be created for consistent results, while enhanced dehumidification performance and additional fan wheels deliver a greater distribution of hot air and optimal results.

Simon Lohse, managing director of Rational UK, is confident that the iCombi Classic will become an indispensable assistant in the professional kitchen due to its ease of use.

“A rotary wheel with push function, colour display and intuitive symbols on the user interface ensure error-free operation. This is supported by simple programing of individual cooking programs. ClimaPlus, the measuring and control centre in the iCombi Classic, is responsible for achieving the desired result.

“With a dehumidification capacity up to 105 litres per second, a powerful steam generator, humidity adjustment in 10% steps, up to three fan wheels and optimum cooking cabinet geometry, it creates a precise cooking cabinet climate for large load quantities and uniformity across all trays.”

The iCombi Classic benefits from improved networking capabilities as it belongs to a completely new generation of cooking systems from Rational.

The optional LAN or WLAN interface enables integration with Rational’s ConnectedCooking proposition, meaning individual cooking programs and hygiene documentation can be centrally created.

Mr Lohse said users would also see improvements in sustainability. “With 10% less energy and water consumption compared to the previous model CombiMaster Plus, the iCombi Classic is a green kitchen aid,” he commented.

The iCombi Classic is available in various sizes, from 6-1/1 for the classic restaurant to 20-2/1 for catering.
