FEM is offering a 25% discount off Hamilton Beach Commercial products including PrimaVac vacuum packers, for a limited period.
The PrimaVac units allow chefs to sous vide their menu items and vacuum seal food for tasks such as marinating and storage – including in the freezer. The heat seal closing system should ensure that 99% of air is evacuated and keeps contents in a sterile, hygienic environment – so even if stored in the fridge, the food can keep for weeks at a time.
Meanwhile the PrimaVac pouch selection, which is BPA-free, comes in a range of sizes and a choice of 3mm or 4mm thickness – so they should be suited for all types of food, wet, dry or bone-in.
The PrimaVac has a sealing pump featuring an adjustable ‘soft air’ function to protect foods during the sealing process. The largest of the three models in the range, the HVC406, also offers the option of gas flushing, whereby an inert gas can be introduced into the pouch after the air has been sucked out, to provide a cushion for delicate produce such as baked goods or leafy vegetables.
The units are made from a durable stainless-steel housing. Both the heat seal bar and the filler plate are removable, and the control panel can be wiped clean.
The PrimaVac’s clear lid is designed for chefs to monitor the vacuum process as it happens. Each model is suitable for a variety of batch sizes as the removable filler plate lifts out to provide room for bulky food. The controls allow chefs to select a suitable vacuum, sealing, cooling and soft air times for different food items, while the 10 different programs are said to deliver consistent quality results at the touch of a button.
FEM’s 25% discount on selected Hamilton Beach Commercial products, including the PrimaVac range lasts until 31 December 2019, while stocks last.
