They say there are seven ages of man. Well, now Rational has gone one better and created five senses of oven. The company launched its new SelfCookingCenter® 5 Senses earlier this year and since then, it has been going down a storm with those in the catering industry.
The product is the first intelligent commercial cooking appliance that actually interacts with chefs, combining five unique elements: sense, recognition, thought, learning and communication. Combine those together and the perfect cooking appliance is born.
The SelfCookingCenter® 5 Senses has the ability to sense current cooking conditions and food consistency. It recognises the size, load quantity and product condition and has the capacity to calculate the browning requirements. The appliance then thinks ahead to calculate the ideal cooking path, having learnt the chef’s preferred cooking habits. Finally, it communicates with you. Forget the reference to man at the beginning, this seems a far better option!
If you want to see it in action, then head to the NEC in Birmingham for GLEE 2014, 14th-16th September, where this innovation will be in full action. By actually interacting with chefs, the best possible cooking results can be achieved, thanks to the interactive cooking control (iCookingControl) technology at the core of the combi.

It is multifunctional too, having the capacity to perform a multitude of tasks, which means it is also space saving: a SelfCookingCenter® can replace 40 to 50% of standard appliances. And to ice the cake and cherry the top as they say, it’s self cleaning. The appliance has an upgraded automatic cleaning system, called Efficient CareControl that uses reformulated cleaning tablets that last 50% longer than previous versions.
What more could you expect from a company that has been perfecting combi-steaming methods since 1976? Well actually, how about a free upgrade?
Rational is offering whitefficiency owners a free 5 Senses software upgrade via a USB stick to all those who have purchased a SelfCookingCentre whitefficiency. Lee Norton, managing director of Rational UK, says,
“Here at Rational, we’re so excited about the new 5 Senses technology that we wanted to make sure that our whitefficiency customers didn’t miss out. By offering the free upgrade we are underlining our total commitment to customer care and satisfaction.
So that’s intelligence, thoughtfulness, sense, recognition, learning, communication and a self cleaning capacity. Now if only Rational did man…!
