Robust, powerful and efficient – the new iCombi Classic combi-steamer from Rational, convinces its worth. With high cooking quality for those offering a simpler menu with less demanding options.

Programing up to 100 individual cooking programs for consistent results, peak values in dehumidification performance for crispy crusts and a succulent texture as well as more fan wheels for a greater distribution of hot air, characterise the iCombi Classic. It also features automatic cleaning with descaling.

The new model is environmentally friendly, the cleaning tabs are phosphate-free. Optional LAN or WLAN interfaces ensure quick and easy integration into ConnectedCooking, the digitalisation solution from Rational.

An indispensable assistant

“The iCombi Classic is quickly becoming an indispensable assistant in the professional kitchen due to its performance,” says Simon Lohse, Managing Director, Rational UK. After all, thanks to its ease of use, the new cooking system ensures that users quickly get the results they want.

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.

Lohse affirms that the iCombi Classic is sustainable discussing these performance figures, “With 10% less energy and water consumption compared to the previous model CombiMaster Plus, the iCombi Classic is a green kitchen aid.”

New generation

The fact that the iCombi Classic belongs to a completely new generation of cooking systems from Rational is also demonstrated by its enhanced networking capabilities. The optional LAN or WLAN interface enables the integration in ConnectedCooking, the digitalisation solution from Rational. For example, for the central creation of individual cooking programs and hygiene documentation.

The iCombi Classic is now available from specialist retailers in various sizes, from 6-1/1 for the classic restaurant to 20-2/1 for catering. As part of the MORE Tour 2020, Rational will be demonstrating the performance of its combi-steamers in the form of webinars with registration via rational-online.com. There will soon be live demonstration events again, the dates and numerous locations will also be available on the website.
