Commercial Food Preparation & Catering Equipment

Archive for December, 2010


With everyone looking at ways to cut costs, cooking from scratch is seeing a resurgence. Preparing vegetables on-site is more cost effective than buying them pre-prepared and saves on packaging and waste, whilst improving quality and retaining vital nutrients. Sirman’s TM Vegetable processor makes vegetable preparation fuss-free and is now available from Foodservice Equipment Marketing (FEM).

The TM is a versatile vegetable processor capable of preparing up to 220kg of fresh vegetables per hour. The TM can also be used to prepare fruit and other foods, the specially-designed feeding system even makes it easy to process soft products like mozzarella cheese.

Thanks to its compact counter-top design the machine is quick to install in any kitchen. Simple electronic push-button operation makes the TM Vegetable Processor straightforward to operate and very user-friendly.

The TM comes complete with a starter set of 4 discs providing a number of chopping and slicing options, and a disc storage basket. A wider-range of discs is available including specialist slicers, graters, dicers and bacon cutters.

A heavy-duty, ventilated, 515W (0.7hp) motor enables the machine to be used continuously without overheating, driving the discs to rotate and chop at 300 rpm. The TM also has a number of safety functions to protect both the user and the machine, such as interlock switches, that prevent the processor from starting if they are not fully in place, and an automatic motor cut-out when the lever is lifted.

Sirman’s TM is constructed from robust aluminium alloy and stainless-steel which makes it easy to keep clean and able to withstand the toughest of kitchen environments. FEM is the main distributor of Sirman products in the UK and Ireland and supplies the TM vegetable processor with a full 12 months parts and labour warranty.

Hand-held stick blenders are a must-have in any commercial kitchen. Kept close-to-hand they quickly whizz soups and sauces at the press of a button and take up very little storage space. Sirman’s versatile and efficient Vortex hand-held mixer is now available from Foodservice Equipment Marketing (FEM).

Vortex hand-held mixers are available in three different shaft lengths, 30, 40 and 50cm. A choice of three powerful, reliable motors, 430 Watt, 550 Watt and 750 Watt, create a combination to suit all needs. These motors drive the durable, stainless steel blades at up to 1400 RPM.

The mixer has a sturdy and lightweight fibreglass ABS body and a robust, stainless steel constructed shaft, bell and blades. These can be easily dismantled for hygienic cleaning, keeping the mixer in good working order. An ergonomic handle and splashguard helps make the Vortex very user-friendly.

A highly effective, fan-assisted cooling system prevents the motors from overheating, whilst a safety switch prevents accidental switch-on. Simple to use, the Vortex hand-held mixer is also available with optional storage case, bowl support, wall support and whisk attachment.

Sirman, the Italian brand of professional foodservice equipment, is exclusively distributed in the UK and Ireland by Foodservice Equipment Marketing Ltd (FEM). In addition to mixers the full Sirman range includes slicing machines, contact grills, food processors, panini grills, vegetable preparation equipment, blast chillers, stick blenders and induction hobs.
