Rational’s iVarioBoost Delivers Intelligent Energy Management for the iVario Pro
- Heating system is four times faster than conventional technology -
Rational’s new iVario Pro cooking system sets a new standard in precision temperature control combined with ultra-fast cooking. The speed and accuracy is down to iVarioBoost, the intelligent energy management system, which is up to four times faster than conventional cooking appliances.
iVario Pro is the latest version of Rational’s multifunctional contact cooking system. Available in a range of models, with a choice of one or two cooking pans, the iVario Pro can be used to boil, pan fry, deep fry, griddle, pressure cook and confit – in one space-saving unit.
The patented iVarioBoost heating system features ceramic heating elements built into the fast-response, scratch-resistant pan bases, delivering precise and even heat distribution. With iVarioBoost, the iVario Pro can heat up to 200°C in less than 2.5 minutes and the largest model, the XL, has enough energy to cook 45kg of beef fillet stroganoff in 20 minutes, or 15kg of pasta in 22 minutes.
iVarioBoost is so powerful that when cold liquid is poured into a casserole, for example, there is a minimal drop in temperature with a quick recovery Equally, the system’s intelligent and precise temperature control prevents foods such as milk-based puddings and sauces from sticking or boiling over. This intelligence assists chefs to achieve perfect, consistent cooking results every time.
Because iVarioBoost’s intelligent energy management system constantly monitors the cooking process, it uses exactly as much power as is required, minimising energy consumption. In fact, the iVario Pro is ideal for the modern, sustainable foodservice kitchen, since it uses up to 40% less energy than conventional equipment. Meanwhile, the opportunity to use the balanced power option on the largest models in the range, iVario Pro L and the Pro XL, offers a lower connected load option.
“The iVarioBoost offers maximum power and precision, delivering high quality and consistent results while at the same time saving on energy,” says Simon Lohse, managing director of Rational UK.
There are three models in Rational’s iVario Pro range. The iVario Pro 2-S has two 25 litre pans, the Pro L has a single 100 litre pan and the Pro XL a single 150 litre pan. In addition Rational offers the iVario 2-XS, a smaller unit that has two 17-litre pans.
