Rational-a different kind of oven
When a friend of mine who is a chef heard I was deciding between all sorts of expensive ovens, along with a steam cooker and a speed cooker, he asked me to take a look at this (I will warn you, pretty it is not):
(the link is from a reseller not the mfgr--But I highly recommend the videos).
After my friend explains to me how it works, and the price I start laughing. Something about starting at 30K, and having a ched come to my house for 2 days to program it. Then I see the price is 1/3 of what it was a couple of years ago, so I start thinking about it. It gives me everything I wanted from the Miele wall oven, the Gagg wall oven and the Gagg steam oven. Plus it holds more, and cleans more easily and will take up less room than 3 pieces.
I show it to my wife, she laughs, then starts watching the video and laughs some more. Then at the end of the 3 videos I get "I want that."
So I go trying to find out if it can go in a residential kitchen. Seems like it can with some minor modifications. I go for a live demo on Thursday.
Any chefs out there with any experience with this thing.
Taking all opinions, even the sarcastic ones.
