Rational USA has introduced its iVario multifunctional cooking system to the North American market.
The manufacturer said its ‘intelligent’ iVario system exceeds the capabilities of conventional tilting skillets, kettles and deep fryers.
Defined by faster cooking times, extraordinary flexibility, and acute precision, it is also up to four times faster and uses up to 40% less electricity when compared to conventional equipment.
As a smart piece of equipment, the iVario learns cooking patterns, alerts the user when items need attention and adjusts cooking paths to achieve desired results.
The intuitive screen display allows kitchen staff, at any level, to easily boil, simmer, sauté, braise, pan fry, deep-fry, and more, at a press of a button, Rational USA said.
It can also see a pan base reach 400°F in less than three minutes, and reduce the temperature with similar speed.
“This is the perfect time to introduce the iVario product line because every foodservice operation is looking to increase efficiencies, maximize productivity and produce outstanding food,” states Markus Glueck, executive vice president for Rational North America.
He continued: “The technology incorporated into the iVario improves both the employee and customer experience, and advances the way commercial kitchens operate. It’s what the industry needs now.”
