We’ve had the pleasure of trying out a few items of equipment….. “Le Tube” is a particularly impressive and innovative piece of kit for accurate dosing like you just won’t believe! Check out the information below
Le Tube is a very impressive piece of kit, basically a cross between a piping bag and a high-accuracy auto-dosing syringe. Mike tried it out dosing quite a thick chocolate with some inclusions for chocolate buttons - it even managed to cope with that! In fact the accuracy was +/-0.3g !! Imagine what it would be like for depositing ganache or whipped pralines! “I’ve already told my boss I’m buying 2 more so the whole team can use them” said Mike after using it for just a day! We thought what was especially useful was the ease of adjustment on-the-fly, availability of spare cartridges, special lids and a whole variety of nozzles…… Here are a few words from de Buyer….
“De Buyer introduces ‘Le Tube’, a pressure pastry syringe which is a great alternative to the traditional pastry bag - offering effortless, clean and accurate results. It works perfectly with thick preparations (such as creams, thick mousses, choux pastry...), sweet or savoury. Consistent dosing is guaranteed with a graduation knob, accurately regulating the amount dispensed. The preparation flow is easily stopped between pressures. Preparations can be stored in advance in ‘Le Tube’s’ body so chefs and their team can manage their time efficiently. Several types of nozzles are also available”.
We’re very proud to announce that de Buyer has chosen to join the APC as a corporate sponsor.
