TSC TEMPERATURE CONTROL

Read entire post: TSC TEMPERATURE CONTROL

The low temperature cooking is increasingly popular in professional kitchens today because it allows standardize firings, minimize waste, and a more rational use of the resources of the kitchen and the oven, chiller, refrigerator, etc.In this type of cooking food is subjected to a temperature stable and homogeneous for extended periods, which may even be several days. Normally usually 100oC temperatures below where a small temperature variation of only 1 ° C, may cause different levels in the food doneness. 

Until recently, the only tool available to the chefs to graduate accurately firing temperature of the thermostat was immersion. However, this device is ill suited to the environment of professional kitchens. 

Distform technology has developed TSC (Thermal Stability Control), applied combination ovens, to meet the specific needs of professional kitchens. This innovation allows working with absolutely accurate temperatures, but, more efficient, more hygienic, without delay, without buckets of water and greater production capacity than an immersion thermostat more comfortable. 

Unlike the rest of combination ovens, the TSC technology , patented exclusively by Distform, it ensures high stability of the temperature inside the cooking chamber, comparable to that of an immersion thermostat. For example, in the graph on the left a combined cooking oven without TSC is observed. It is appreciated that in one measurement point, its temperature varies during the course of cooking (stability). It is also noted that in a moment of time, the probes spread over the cooking chamber measuring different temperatures (homogeneity). It is unfeasible to perform low temperature cooking with optimal and repeatable results with this type of oven. 

However, with the TSC system , right, it is noted that throughout the cooking chamber and throughout the cooking temperature has remained constant (with an accuracy of +/- 0.2oC), which allows firings at low temperature with perfect and repeatable results.

COMPACT VS. IMMERSION THERMOSTAT

Read entire post: COMPACT VS. IMMERSION THERMOSTAT

ADVANTAGES OF TEKTHERM COMPACT VS. IMMERSION THERMOSTAT

Today we want to talk about the TekTherm Compact professional appliance as an alternative to laboratory devices commonly used for-low temperature cooking, such as the Roner thermostat or the immersion thermostat.

TekTherm Compact is a cooking chamber, developed collaboratively with the Roca brothers (Celler de Can Roca), which guarantees maximum precision at low temperatures thanks to a TSC patent, which ensures accuracy of ±0.2ºC. The exactness of the cooking temperature is especially important in low-temperature cooking in order to obtain moist, uniform results with little reductions. An egg is a clear example; every degree in temperature causes a change in texture.

This exactness in a cooking chamber, unique among ovens in the industry, is an essential advantage that the professional solution of TekTherm Compact introduces. But there's more, especially in the field of sous-vide cooking. We outline the details below:


With TekTherm Compact, you avoid inconveniences derived from using water

The immersion thermostat is a laboratory tool that moved to the kitchen because of its exactness, but it still presents some inconveniences for the chef. Since food is placed in the water, it should be vacuum sealed so that its organoleptic properties and qualities remain intact. If the food were to have direct contact with the water, it would lose part of its flavor, and the resulting texture would look like a boiled product. Some inconveniences of working with water and the immersion thermostat include constant dripping when the bags are taken out and transported, water evaporation from the basin during cooking, and the resulting humidity in the room. Another disadvantage is that the water in the basin is not the same temperature throughout; for example, the water is hotter nearer the immersion thermostat than it is on the sides of the basin. All these problems can be avoided with the TekTherm Compact appliance, since it produces cooking that is just as exact but without the sous-vide bag.


Maximum temperature stability in the cooking chamber

The TSC patent for the TekTherm appliances provides thermal stability in the chamber with accuracy of ±0.2ºC. No other oven in the industry has this exactness or uniformity for low-temperature cooking (up to 100ºC).

TekTherm Compact presenta la misma precisión que el termostato de inmersión aunque mayor homogeneidad y comodidad de cocción

From left to right, graphs of a combi oven (stability: 2ºC/Uniformity: 4ºC), immersion thermostat (stability: 0.2ºC/Uniformity: 3.5ºC) and TekTherm Compact with the TSC patent (stability: 0.2ºC/Uniformity: 0.6ºC).

TekTherm Compact offers more stability than conventional combi ovens and greater uniformity than immersion thermostats.

 
Savings of up to 76%

Using TekTherm Compact leads to savings of up to 76% in energy consumption compared to immersion thermostat in cooking over long periods of time because the TSC precision technology manages the energy needed each second to keep the cooking chamber stable. For this reason, cooking at night is more low-cost.

TekTherm Compact is a more efficient technology for long cooking times. The example below demonstrates this concept: Cooking at 65ºC for 12 hours has a daily energy consumption of 1.76 kW/h with TekTherm Compact compared to the 7.28 kW/h with the immersion thermostat.  Likewise, cooking at 65ºC for 12 hours a day has an annual energy consumption of 387.2 kW/h compared to the 1,601.6 kW/h with the immersion thermostat.

 
Forget the timers

TekTherm makes it possible to do without timers because the Multi Time Control allows you to control the time in each level of the cooking chamber. Forget the color-coded clamps...

 
Maximum uniformity

TekTherm Compact incorporates the Predictive Cooking patent, which allows the desired temperature to reach the center of the food and does not allow the temperature to continue rising from the product's thermal inertia. Food can, therefore, be left in the oven indefinitely without being overcooked. The TSC and Predictive Cooking patents provide completely uniform cooking of food, both on the inside and out.

 
More production

Greater production capacity with the resulting saved kitchen space. TekTherm Compact is a small appliance with 3 GN 2/3 capacity, which also ensures the utmost speed in changing temperatures.

 
Multiple uses

In the low-temperature kitchen, TekTherm Compact has multiple uses besides sous-vide cooking:

  • Sous-vide cooking: as precise as an immersion thermostat but more convenient (without the inconvenience of water) and uniform, less energy consumption, and optimization of kitchen space.
  • Low-temperature cooking: low temperature cooking with or without vacuum-sealed bags for uniform cooking results with 25% fewer reductions.
  • Dehydration:  work without steam and extract the humidity from the chamber.
  • Steamer: get the best results with seafood thanks to the latest steam technology and TSC precision.
  • Pasteurization: increase product shelf life up to 120%.
  • Fermentation: TSC precision allows this technique to be reproduced exactly in order to get controlled results.
  • Regeneration: this technique requires exact temperature precision to prevent the food from being overcooked. TSC precision and its humidity control allows precooked food to maintain its juiciness and freshness.
  • Preservation: it is very important to precisely control the temperature and humidity to avoid drying out and alterting the properties of the food.

Selecting A Food Dehydrator

Read entire post: Selecting A Food Dehydrator

The use of dehydration as a food preserving method has actually been around for thousands of years. Before refrigeration, there were really only two options for keeping food: dehydration and canning.

With the advent of food dehydrators, the process became much simpler than for our ancestors who would hang meat, vegetables or berries over wood frames in the sun and wind.

Although food dehydrators have been around for decades, the models on the market today are far superior in features and functionality than those available in the past.

When looking into food dehydrators for your own home, be sure to investigate all your options.

If you are in the market for a food dehydrator, there are two main types of food dehydrators, vertical airflow and horizontal airflow:

  • Those who use horizontal airflow units comment that you get even heat between the trays. In addition, you don’t get as much flavour mixing between the trays when dehydrating different types of foods at the same time.
  • Vertical airflow units usually have a fan on the bottom, which provides good heat distribution because heat rises. However, you can get drippings on the fan making it more difficult to clean.

When you’re researching different models available, consider the size you will require. Think about how much you will be drying at a time. Some dehydrators are very large and give you the ability to dry many different items at once. Others are meant for limited home use and allow you to only dry a few different items at once. Remember that you will need to store this unit, so size is important.

Heat control is another important element to consider when selecting a food dehydrator. You want a machine that offers an adjustable thermostat as well as a long length timer.

One of the most popular and highest quality food dehydrators available on the market is the Excalibur Food Dehydrator. Offering horizontal air flow and up to 25% more drying space than standard dehydrators, this unit also features faster drying and best overall versatility.

The Frucosol Interview

The Frucosol Interview – We Speak with Victor Martinez about the Frucosol Glass Froster

Today we spoke with Victor Martinez, who is the export manager for the Frucosol Company that is based in the city of Calahorra in Spain. Frucosol has long been known – especially in the European market – for their commercial citrus juicers. We asked Victor about their GF-1000 Glass Froster, which is designed to use liquid CO2 to freeze and frost glasses on an as-needed basis. We’ve been selling the froster since it was introduced to the US market in 2013, and we wanted to find out more.
Here’s what Victor had to say:

Tell me a little about the history of Frucosol and the changes you have seen since you have been there?

Frucosol started to manufacture two models of orange juicers in 1991; little by little, and step by step, they got a name in the Spanish National Market, and in 1998 started to sell its products abroad (France, Italy and Portugal). With the passage of time, Frucosol began adding more models of juicers, and we started to manufacture our first model of cutlery polisher. How and why? Just listening our customers and the needs they had.

I started to work by Frucosol in 2003, and my first tasks were increasing the National Sales, although one year later, I started to work in the International Department. The main changes I have seen are the increasing of new products (glass polisher, decarbonisers, and glass froster) and the huge increase of our sales in more than 75 countries all over the world. This is possible because of the high quality of our products, and the excellent service we provide with deliveries.

When Frucosol developed the glass froster, were there other frosters like it in Europe, 

Or is it a new idea?

We started to manufacture the glass froster in November-December 2012 and we took the idea from one machine one of our customers had talked about it. The problem that machine had was that it was very big, very expensive and the potential customers were not so much, so we took the idea, modified the principle and started to develop a more economic and simple machine. The key point is the liquid CO2 gas that is used in this type of machine.

Frusosol introduced the glass froster a couple of years ago. Who are your customers, and how do they use the glass froster?

Frucosol sells its products to distributors and dealers of more than 75 countries all over the world, and our dealers are selling the glass frosters to bars, restaurants, hotels, caterings, wine shops, breweries, wine cellars, discos, pubs…even particular people who use it at home. We can say it is our most sold product in the last 2 years.

What should a potential customer know before buying the glass froster?

First of all they have to get informed if a local gas supplier can supply them the gas the machine needs to work, that is, a CO2 liquid gas cylinder with dip tube. Without it, the machine is not useful at all because it doesn’t work. Once we are sure we can get the gas, we don’t need to worry about anything else. The Glass froster GF1000 is able to freeze any type of glass: wine, champagne, beer Pilsner glasses, cocktails. This machine will help you to taste much better all your drinks.

What is the feedback on it from customers – what do they like and not like about it?

To be honest, we cannot be more satisfied with the feedback of this machine. It is a machine that doesn’t cause any problem (no motor, no electricity), very simple to use so our customers are not worried about possible breakdowns. They like the more how the glasses are after using the machine, and how they have increased their sales attracting more people to their business. What they don’t like about it? That usually they have to buy more than one unit when they have long counter bars…

Can you tell us about any new products that are coming out soon?

Our I+D Department is always working in new products. Take into account that Frucosol started to manufacture only 2 models of juicers, and now you can see our great range of different machines, so we are always thinking of new machines. At this moment, my partners are working on a new model of glass froster, and we are testing a new cooking machine, a machine we are already selling in Spain to test it. When we launch a new product, we prefer to sell it locally for some months in order to check possible failures, as it is easier for us to modify a machine that is near our factory.
