One of the stars of Rational’s new iCombi Pro combi steamer is an advanced feature called iProductionManager which, the company says, not only increases productivity but also adds enormous flexibility to production schedules. At the same time, it reduces running costs.
The option of cooking different products at the same time in a combi steamer isn’t new, but iProductionManager takes the whole concept to a higher level.
As well as telling you what products can be cooked together, it allows chefs to select whether they want all the food to be ready at the same time, if they want it all to be cooked as quickly as possible or if they want it cooked as energy efficiently as possible. Depending on the choice, iProductionManager then automatically prepares the optimum schedule.
The iCombi control panel makes everything simple. Once the chefs have selected what type of schedule they want – synchronised, speedy or efficient – they simply drag the relevant icon, such as sausages, onto the appropriate shelf on the panel, so the system knows which food is where and can monitor it accordingly.
With iProductionManager chefs can even split shelves, so that two different foods can be cooked on the same shelf, with the system monitoring each to ensure they are perfectly cooked.
