Sammic has hailed its R&D department after releasing a range of innovative vegetable preparation machines that it claims have been three years in the making.
The Spanish-owned company insists its goal was to improve the quality of the cuts and dicing — in particular very delicate cuts — whilst increasing production but keeping the equipment as ergonomic, easy to use and hygienic as possible.
The three-model range of stainless steel and cast aluminium machines it has come up with include features such as lateral shoots, which are ideal for narrow counter spaces; a one-arm motion process with a handle designed for low impact on elbows and wrists; and a water-tight, LED-lit front control panel.
Ian Houldsworth, managing director of Sammic UK, said the company’s R&D team even worked in conjunction with cooking experts such as three-time Michelin starred chef Martin Berasategui to develop the equipment.
“Our R & D department is constantly working on new ideas and updates of current lines to make them the best on the market,” he said. “These latest changes to our vegetable prep machines make them highly attractive, easy to use and will undoubtedly complement any busy kitchen environment.”
The new range includes high output capabilities — up-to 700 covers per day and a wide range of discs and grids allowing over 70 different cuts.
Sammic has been supplying catering equipment solutions to industrial, commercial, leisure and hospitality markets for more than three decades.
