Carpigiani PASTOCHEF Confectionary
The Pastochef is a miracle of modern electronics. Through the use of microprocessor technology and convenient, easy-to-use touch pad controls, the Pastochef can be programmed to automatically perform many different operations.
Its main application is in the preparation of confectionary delights. Among its capabilities are: tempering of plain chocolate, milk chocolate, and colored chocolate; production of confectioners custard for use as a filling in cakes, cream puffs, croissants, etc.; pouchee fruit (sugar-stewed fruit) with fruit whole or in chunks, for use in cakes, ice cream cups, etc.; fruit liqueur or chocolate Bavarian Cream for use in sophisticated desserts; the preparation of ice cream mixes; etc..
The Pastochef may also be used to prepare: rice puddings, bechamel, mayonnaise, soups, sauces, gravies, porridge, scrambled eggs, meat pie fillings, jams, and more.
The Pastochef solves common problems automatically - it is programmed with a specific cycle for mixing flour, sugar, and eggs which results in a smooth and homogenous mix which will easily disolve in milk when heated.
Besides reaching the pasteurization temperature threshold, cooking continues for an adequate time to ensure that starches fully coagulate, ensuring a smooth product.
Cooling takes place while the mixture is being gently stirred to avoid over-beating. Thickening occurs as the temperature goes down.
The Pastochef reduces temperature from +63ºC to +3ºC inless than 1 hour. Through the pasteurization process pastry cream and flavored cream are produced and stored under fully hygenic conditions, enhancing the quality and shelf life of the product.Additional Features:
