Pantheon has reported a significant rise in sales on its VPM vegetable preparation machine in the first few months of 2018.
The manufacturer is pinning this increase on the continued growth in the demand for vegetarian and vegan food and with an increasing focus on healthy eating, which means vegetables are becoming more prominent on British menus.
Pantheon’s VPM veg prep machine is said to be built to withstand heavy use. Its all metal hopper and base can chip, julienne, dice, slice, shred and grate a variety of fruits and vegetables and will also turn its hand to softer items like bread, cheese and chocolate.
It has a 500W motor which is designed to cut out instantly when the machine is opened and, to provide additional stability, the unit comes with rubber feet that grip the countertop.
The plug in unit comes complete with five discs (a 2mm and 4mm slicer and three graters) and a selection of additional julienning, dicing, chipping, grating and slicing discs are also available.
The VPM is claimed to be simple to operate and easy to clean, as every part of the body is accessible, whilst the discs are dishwasher-proof.
List price is £1,295.00.
