Revolutionary 'sous vide' cooker guarantees a perfect result!
The West Yorkshire firm responsible for a new state-of-the-art 'sous vide' cooker was chosen as one of only twenty 'Best Selected Exhibitors' at the latest Ideal Home Show – beating off competition from six hundred other businesses.
Burton Kitchenware – inventors of the Burton Sous Vide cooker - was awarded the title for its eye-catching stand and ingenious high tech cooker.
"We were so surprised to receive the award but it's great to know that other people are as excited about it as we are!", said Burton Kitchenware managing director Richard Burton. "The Burton Sous Vide will radically change home cooking because it will give people the opportunity to use techniques that have up until now only been available to the professional chef".
Richard hit upon the idea for the home sous vide when he was left to get to grips with the household tasks after his wife became ill with breast cancer. Experiencing how difficult it was to feed a family properly without wastage, he looked at how he could vacuum-pack food for preservation.
With the help of Glenelg Design – the people behind the GHD hair straightener – Richard has developed the innovative Burton Sous Vide, which allows people to use the water bath technique at home, and works by sealing food in air-tight plastic pouches and cooking them at much lower temperatures, allowing for succulent food that's always cooked to perfection.
The Burton Sous Vide has been designed to sit comfortably in modern domestic kitchens. The sleek cooker (available online from early 2014) is low enough to fit under cupboards when in operating mode and has a hinged, removable lid for spaces where height is restricted.
With a water bath capacity of more than thirteen litres, with five litres of space for food, there's enough for the hungriest of families. Its temperature-controlled system and well-insulated cover mean that it is extremely energy efficient and, even at its maximum temperature, it remains safe to touch.
Christopher Hackett, editor of Show Review UK, the national magazine that awarded Burton Kitchenware, said it was a "fantastic achievement" and the company "caught the eye of the judges and offered some impressive products".
