Rational has revealed that its new CombiMaster Plus is 28% smaller than its previous manual combi.
The reduced footprint is designed to make it more viable for customers with space constraints.
Rational says the model has been developed for chefs which prefer to use their combi steamer as a manual machine, but with the option of programs just in case.
The CombiMaster Plus features several new technologies, including a centrifugal grease trap, which automatically separates out grease in the fan and therefore eliminates the need to clean and replace conventional grease filters.
The technology keeps the cooking cabinet’s air clean and guarantees great results, with a pure, grease-free taste experience.
The new combi steamer has simple controls with self-explanatory graphics and a rotary dial for accurate settings.
When used for manual cooking, it offers four modes: steam cooking; hot air (convection) cooking; combination cooking; and ‘Finishing’, which uses Rational’s special regen technology.
It also offers five air speeds, giving chefs complete control for whatever they are cooking – from robust dishes such as lasagne to delicate souffles and eclairs.
There are up to 50 program slots, each with up to six steps, for automating recipes. The programs allow staff to reproduce any signature dishes, at the push of a button.
There are six model sizes in the CombiMaster Plus range, from six-grid to 40-grid, all available in electric and gas versions.
