Cheftools has announced the availability of the first new Pacojet food prep model to be redesigned in 25 years.
The company, which is the sole UK importer of Pacojet, said the new model has been introduced to coincide with the brand’s 25th anniversary year.
The Pacojet 2 boasts a host of new and improved features, many of which the firm says have been suggested by distinguished chefs from around the world.
Key to the revamped model is a powerful new Swiss-made ‘brushless’ motor, which is more efficient and much quieter than its predecessor.
Software has also been upgraded to detect and prevent overfilling beakers, a common operator error that can cause blade damage. The machine can now sense when overfilling occurs and recover beaker contents without the need to thaw.
There is also an optional air pressure mode with automatic depressurisation, which permits pressure release during the processing cycle.
Essex-based Cheftools says the Pacojet 2 has a resale price of £80.
Tom Kerridge, owner of the Hand & Flowers in Marlow, Buckinghamshire, the only 2-Michelin starred pub in the world, has been trialling the device. He said: “We have found the Pacojet 2 to be highly efficient and the manufacturer has clearly taken on board suggestions for improvement.”
