Visit the Clifton Kitchen

Late last month we had a visitor from Sri Lanka in our development kitchen, bringing lots of culinary joy with her. Our friend Amina cooks sous vide in Colombo and wanted to learn more about how she could use her traditional recipes with this modern way of cooking.

Our Clifton kitchen is a place for chefs to come an experiment with our equipment in a relaxed environment. The kitchen will hold up to 20 visitors at any one time and is a suitable venue for sous vide and product training, workshops and demonstrations.

If you would like to bring a group down to the kitchen to experiment with the Clifton water baths and explore the sous vide cooking technique, then please get in contact and we will happily arrange it.

We have a visitor’s page on our website where you can find more details. We hope to see you soon!

The Restaurant Show

This year we exhibited at The Restaurant Show at Olympia, London, where we shared a stand with Multivac.

It was great to meet distributors, suppliers and chefs who were interested in our famous orange handles as well as seeing our current distributors and chefs – thank you for coming to the stand.
The Restaurant Show is also home to National Chef of the Year – where ten finalists from across the nation battle it out, creating a three course meal. This year’s brief was a seafood starter, venison main and finally for dessert the theme was British apples!

It was great to see so many Clifton customers in the final – including third place winner Simon Webb, RAF chef David Davey-Smith and Will Holland.

We’d just like to say congratulations to all of the ten finalists for making it this far – you should all be proud!

Split Them Up…

Available in three sizes, the long, the short and the mini! There is a partition divider for every bath and every chef!

With special feet on the bottom of the dividers, they sit in the perforated tray at the bottom of all unstirred Clifton water baths. (The perforated tray should be situated in the water bath at all times, to allow even distribution of heat throughout the chamber.) The partitions allow the working area of the bath to be divided for portion control. They separate the food into different sections for easy identification when cooking. They can also separate products that have just been placed into the bath (and therefore not regenerated) from those ‘on hold’ ready to go.

Manufactured from high quality stainless steel. To find out more, click here.

Get Carried Away…

The sturdy Clifton carry case is designed to fit the portable immersion stirrer unit perfectly, to prevent it from being damaged whilst in transit – it is ideal for chefs who travel or want a sous vide unit for demonstrations.

Designed in our signature ‘Clifton orange’, this case comes complete with protective foam inserts, which fits the stirrer, power lead and a pocket for plating tweezers.

There are two metal toggle catch clasps which ensure the case is securely fastened and a hinged lid which locks securely.

This case is an accessory and does not come complete with the Immersion circulator.

Gulfhost

This year we attended Gulfhost, the new hospitality equipment and food service exhibition launched by Gulfood, the world’s largest annual food trade event at the Dubai World Trade Centre.

We exhibited some Clifton products at the exhibition with support from our Exclusive U.A.E distributor, Muddle Me. Amongst the products on the stand, was the popular 28 litre unstirred water bath, portable immersion circulator with it’s Clifton orange carry case and the Sauce Bottlewarmer.

Thank you to everyone that visited the exhibition.

From England to Australia…

Sous Vide Australia, our Australian distributor will be exhibiting at Fine Food Australia between 11th and 14th September 2017 at the ICC Sydney, Darling Harbour.

They will have a range of Clifton product on the stand; so if you’re in the area come and say hello!

We would like to wish Sous Vide Australia a successful exhibition and thank them for their continued support in promoting our products.

Honey, Honey, Honey

Honey season has arrived again and the Clifton bees have been very busy pollinating all of the beautiful flowers in the magnificent Clifton garden!

At Clifton we like to give back to our bees so we ensure that we make their surroundings are as good as they can possibly be so they can produce us some local honey, literally on our doorstep!

28 Unstirred Vs 28 Stirred

28 Litre Unstirred Water Bath

Using the same high precision controller found on all other Clifton Food Range® products, accuracy and repeatability are guaranteed. Actual temperature is clearly displayed to 0.1°C.

The stability of the 28 unstirred water bath is ± 0.2°C and the uniformity is ± 0.1°C.

If required, the integrated timer can be set between 1 minute and 99 hours. There is audio/visual notification at the end of the set period after which the bath still continues to operate at the set temperature. Current time and temperature settings are retained in memory even after ‘power off’.

Side lifting handles make it easy to carry the bath around the kitchen and the drain tap allows quick emptying for cleaning. The product is supplied with a stainless steel lid which has an easy grab insulated handle. The bath is also supplied with a removable stainless steel perforated shelf which provides effective distribution of heat uniformly throughout the chamber by convection.

 

28 Litre Stirred Water Bath

This 28 litre stirred bath consists of an unheated stainless tank housed in a stainless steel case. To one side is a bridge unit which has an immersion circulator fitted. This simultaneously heats and stirs the water creating a highly stable environment accurate to ±0.01°C.

Pouches are prevented from contacting the heater stirrer mechanism by a stainless steel guard. The stirring propeller is manufactured from high quality stainless steel.

The controller can be rotated so that the bath can be used ‘side to side’ or ‘end on’ to optimise left to right counter top space. It can also be rotated so it can be viewed from virtually any angle. As the stirrer rotates through 3 main principle viewing angles, the chef can choose whether the lid opens on the left hand side of the tank, or the right.

The heater/stirrer unit can be easily removed to assist cleaning.
