Seriously Sous Vide: British Company Hits U.S. Market
Creative Cuisine, LLC, a subsidiary of U.K.-based Grant Instruments, Ltd., announced that it will launch a complete line of sous vide products in May 2016, including immersion circulators, water baths, controllers and accessories to meet the needs of any size kitchen, home cook or professional chef.
The differentiator from other sous vide providers on the market is that Creative Cuisine offers the broadest range of models complemented by the company’s rich history in the sous vide space. Grant has more than 60 years of experience designing and manufacturing sophisticated fluid temperature control systems, with a well-known reputation for the highest levels of quality, reliability, service and support. Domestic and professional kitchens can expect the same innovation, quality and service that scientists receive from the Grant product line.
The new line consists of sous vide products for the home, small restaurants, food service operations with limited space and professional kitchens.
