LoCooker, saving money and improving food quality

LoCooker

Even in today’s environmentally-conscious age, chefs all over the world are wasting huge amounts of water, energy and money.

Is it because of a focus on better food quality? Is it because there is no alternative?

No – it is purely down to the techniques and equipment they use.

LoCooker simply perfect for Sous Vide
 LoCooker

The LoCooker is the worlds first true water oven. It is a flexible device that allows sous vide cooking and so much more. 

Sous Vide and Sous Vide cooking equipment is used in many top restaurants. The popularity of Sous Vide cooking has increased because it produces consistent results, and fantastic food. The food is vacuum sealed (Sous Vide) and cooked using water held at a precise temperature – the temperature the food cooks best at. To achieve this professional Sous Vide equipment is used.

Cambrian Mountain Lamb Royal Event
 
The LoCooker was used at the new season launch of Cambrian Welsh Lamb attended by HRH Prince Charles. The event was held at the Welsh Government Office in Victoria.
 
The LoCooker was used to bring out the quality and flavour of the lamb. The event was attended by many of London’s top chefs, all of whom were impressed with the lamb, and the LoCooker.
 
The LoCooker was able to show its versatility during the event as the venue had almost no catering facilities – only a small room with sink and a few tables – somewhere where previously events like this would have been very difficult and complicated to host. Thanks to all involved for making the event such a success.
