In the year 1976 the German firm RATIONAL introduced their first combi-steamer by placing a steam generator into a common convection oven. Ever since then the company keeps developing their appliances by investing significant amounts on research and development facilities, while in the year 1986 they first worldwide introduced the gas combi-steamer. RATIONAL AG is the worldwide leader in both sales and innovations in cooking technology for both large and commercial kitchens, and in the field of haute cuisine, with world market share that lies close to 54%.

Adding to the very innovative technology the genius software makes also the most complicated cooking procedures a very easy task almost by the touch of a button.
The new development of the company SELFCOOKING CENTER® was introduced in 2004 to create a new era in cooking.

The user has just to select the way of roasting (e.g. steaming, grilling e.t.c.) and how well done the result should come out (e.g. medium-well done e.t.c.). The new model of Self Cooking Center® White Efficiency® offers even greater productivity and energy saving by introducing shorter cooking times & baking in multiple levels with accuracy (Efficient Level Control®).
