Smoking Hot

Rational’s VarioSmoker is a new combi-steamer accessory that smokes meat, fish and vegetables using wood chips or pellets, which impart a smoked taste. Through variation in temperature and preparation time, chefs can control the flavour and intensity of foods. The machine allows them to cook and smoke food simultaneously, saving time, space and money.

Heat Savvy

The new energy-saving Electric Salamander cooks, grills, reheats and keeps food hot.

It features a touch-control panel, a removable cooking grate and drip tray, an adjustable hood and wall-mounting hardware.

The high-density polyurethane insulation inside the cabinet means hot food can be held out of the danger zone for up to four hours, even when the machine is unplugged. It’s available in two sizes — tall, with two separate compartments, or small, with a single compartment.
