Rational wins USA's 2015 Kitchen Innovations Award
Rational's SelfCookingCenter 5 Senses helps the firm win its sixth gong with USA's National Restaurant Association
Cooking appliance manufacturer Rational will receive the Kitchen Innovations Award for the sixth time in May 2015.
The prize is awarded once a year by the USA's National Restaurant Association (NRA).
With its SelfCookingCenter 5 Senses, the first intelligent cooking appliance in the world, the manufacturer impressed internationally recognised nutritionists, chefs and design experts. The NRA announced the winners recently.
"Each year, our independent panel of judges scans the entire industry to find the products that advance the entire food service industry," said John C. Metz, convention chair for NRA Show 2015, the industry fair held in Chicago, where the prizes will be awarded in mid-May.
The decisive factors included energy efficiency, safety, multifunctionality, speed and intelligence.
"We know from our customers how important these factors are in daily kitchen routines," said Alexander Wimmer, area vice president at Rational.
He added: "The award is a great incentive for us to continue to consistently orient ourselves to the needs of our customers."
