“140 million dishes are prepared daily around the world in RATIONAL units, and they taste good!” said Rodney Marshall, Aldevra President & CEO. “RATIONAL’s unwavering commitment to a shared goal of continually creating value for our customers is evident from the ease of quoting to turnkey installations and the awesome chefs who are always available to help. We look forward to continuing to work together to serve our federal customers.”

The federal government is leading the way in procuring products that are energy-efficient, which aligns perfectly with RATIONAL’s dedication to improving energy efficiency and achieving ENERGY STAR certification for their products. RATIONAL recently announced that all 13 iCombi Pro models are ENERGY STAR certified. This is significant because the ENERGY STAR program is one of the few globally recognized certifications for high energy efficiency, certified by independent institutes. RATIONAL has also exceeded the new energy efficiency and water consumption standards set by the ENERGY STAR program for Commercial Ovens V 3.0. This means that RATIONAL’s cooking systems not only meet but exceed the new requirements, making them an excellent choice for federal agencies looking to reduce their environmental impact.
