Sous Vide Tools is now supplying compact Fresco vacuum packing machines.
The units are said to be suitable for businesses that require a hygienic, cost-effective and consistent, vacuum packing solution that takes up little space on the work surface.
The Fresco machine is made of stainless steel, inside and out, which is designed to give a robust and reliable unit. A digital control panel and pressure indicator are standard, together with an 8m³/h or 16m³/h Sous Vide Tools vacuum pump, depending on the model.
The 300 model with the 8m³/h pump has a 300mm sealing bar that takes a maximum bag size of 300mm x 400mm, reaching full vacuum in 20 to 35 seconds.
The 400 unit with the more powerful pump has a longer 400mm sealing bar, handling a maximum bag size of 400mm x 450mm, reaching full vacuum within 15 to 30 seconds.
Both models have rounded corners to avoid the trapping of food debris, while the sealing bar should be simple to remove for cleaning. When used for sous vide cooking, the double seam bag closure seals the pouch and prevents contamination of the water bath.
The two machines are available from Sous Vide Tools for £899 ex VAT for the smaller model and £1,199 ex VAT for the larger, and come with a free servicing pack and a 2-year warranty.
