Welcome to Product Junkie, Caterer's new dedicated products blog in which we'll talk all things product- and gadget-related, from the food items that sometimes make their delicious way to our desks (which we obviously feel obliged to eat, especially those of the cake variety) to the weird and wonderful toys-with-buttons-to-press that serve to make life in hospitality that much easier.
Of course, we recently had the Hospitality show at Birmingham's NEC where we always discover something we've never seen before. Product Junkie was rather taken with a nifty bit of kit we came across on one of the exhibitor stands.
The Lillo Due pasta machine is gorgeous and shiny and will provide hours of good clean fun besides taking all the hard work out of making fresh pasta that will spirit your customers' taste buds to Italy for an authentic taste like Mamma used to make.
The baby machine can easily fulfil the requirement for 30-60 portions a day and won't take up much room in the kitchen. It's built from stainless steel and bronze throughout and equipped with traditional bronze extruding dies which give a rough surface to the pasta.
We bet you'll polish it lovingly every day.
