Sous Vide Tools is aiming to help operators spread the cost of reopening by offering them £400 cashback for their old vacuum packing machine when they buy a new one from its current range.
Models such as the Fresco 300, Fresco 400, iCucina 315 and iCucina 405 all qualify for the promotion.
“We know that pub, restaurant and hotel kitchens up and down the country are going to be under huge financial pressure in the months immediately after re-opening and we hope that this offer will help to protect at least some of their capital expenditure,” said managing director Alex Shannon.
“And they can also feel good knowing that their old machine is either being responsibly recycled or donated to charity.”
Operators simply need to visit www.sousvidetools.com/trade-in and select a new Sous Vide Tools vacuum packing machine.
Once that has been done, they choose the required trade in option from the dropdown on the product page, add the item to the shopping basket and checkout as normal.
Once the order has been placed Sous Vide Tools will arrange collection of their old appliance – which must be empty, unplugged and left in a suitable place for collection – and delivery of their new one.
The old machine does not need to be in working order. Where possible, Sous Vide Tools will attempt to refurbish it and donate it to a homeless shelter or hospice.
The £400 cashback will be paid directly into the customer’s bank within 40 days of delivery.
