MCS Technical Products is expanding its product portfolio with the launch of two new pieces of equipment from Italian manufacturer Zernike.
The company, well-known for being the UK’s main supplier of CookTek induction equipment, is now offering the Klima meat ageing cabinet and Windry glass and cutlery dryer.
The meat ageing cabinet produces healthy and naturally cured meat and cheese. Temperature and humidity can be set precisely via an electronic control system, which also manages the internal air circulation.
The patented Oxigenklima system makes it possible to create the ideal climate for any kind or age of meat, while the humidity generator creates an even distribution of the humidity in each point of the ageing chamber.
The result is an optimal ageing result with a weight loss percentage (around 3%-4%) and a reduction in productive times and costs.
MCS claims that while many other cabinets on the market can only age two-year-old meat up to 30 days maximum, the Klima cabinet allows older meat which is three-, four- or five-years-old to be aged up to and above 75 days. This produces tender succulent meat that can be eaten as carpaccio.
David Jenkins, development chef at MCS Technical Products, said: “These new Klima cabinets are very flexible. You can mature products with different ageing times without interrupting the production chain. These cabinets meet the consumer demand for dry aged beef. They can also be used to produce artisan cheese, game, prosciutto and other charcuterie.”
The Windry automatic glass and cutlery dryer, meanwhile, quickly produces dried shining glasses and cutlery without smears.
It has an easy-to-use electronic display and can dry cutlery and glasses of all shapes and sizes. The rapid stream of heated air dries without leaving any fingerprints or marks.
It frees up staff for other tasks, reducing the risk of cross contamination and breakages by avoiding manual drying.
It is available in both free-installation models and models which can hooked up to hood dishwashers.
MCS plans to showcase both products at the forthcoming Restaurant Show.
