About us

RATIONAL. The chefs’ company.

It all began with the idea of combining steam and convection cooking into a single appliance. We invented the first combi-steamer in 1976 and have developed it ever since. Yet our company has never just been content with being a mechanical engineer. We see ourselves as an innovative solutions provider. Above all else, our utmost priority is to satisfy our customers.

This vision has transformed RATIONAL into a global market and technology leader. RATIONAL products are an integral part of industrial kitchens.

With over 750,000 RATIONAL appliances on the market, our appliances have become a standard in professional kitchens all over the world. And what we're particularly happy about: 93% of our global customers confirm that RATIONAL offers maximum customer benefit. (TNS Infratest 2016 study). Definitely one reason why almost all of them would also recommend RATIONAL.

Products and services

We have dedicated over 40 years to achieving one ambitious goal: to offer you the best cooking tool.

With our SelfCookingCenter® and VarioCooking Center®, we are offering a system consisting of two high-performance units that complement each other perfectly. A system that offers you the best possible food quality and with which you can keep a firm handle on costs.

With our SelfCookingCenter® you can grill, roast, bake, steam, stew, blanch or poach food, all within a space of less than about 1 m². Meat, fish, poultry, vegetables, egg dishes, baked goods, desserts—you can do it all, whether you’re cooking for thirty or for several thousand.

The VarioCooking Center® combines maximum efficiency and simple operation within minimal space. Conventional cooking appliances such as tilting frying pans, boilers, stoves and deep-fat fryers are combined in a single multifunctional appliance. It can be used for boiling, shallow-frying, low temperature cooking, confit or sous-vide cooking.
