Rational AG is a German manufacturer of combi steamers and ovens, cooking appliances suitable for large and commercial kitchens. The company is based in Landsberg am Lech, Germany and was founded by Siegfried Meister in 1973. It is now the most globally recognised brand for combi ovens and 'combination steam'. 

The combi oven is normally requested by the “grid numbers”, which relates to the number of trays it can cook in one session. This was later changed to the Rational Self Cooking Centre or SCC as it is known across the world.

Following its invention of the Vario Cooking Centre in 2005 under the Frima brand, Rational then merged both businesses to create the SCC and VCC ranges in 2017.
