Heidolph Rotary Evaporator Features in C4 Gadget Man Show
Ever fancied a clear smooth coffee with all the flavour and none of the bitterness? This is what Richard Ayoade, presenter of Channel 4’s, the Gadget Man, wanted in his restaurant of the future.
Heidolph-UK was able to achieve this using the Hei-VAP rotary evaporator which featured in Series 3 Episode 7 about Cooking and Dining Out.
Finding new ways of enhancing familiar flavours and even creating new flavours is at the heart of great cooking and is the reason why rotary evaporators are found not only in laboratories but also in the kitchens of Michelin-starred restaurants. Operating at a very low atmospheric pressure, the rotary evaporator is able to achieve low boiling points, e.g. 35°C to boil water – a temperature low enough that foods are not ‘cooked’ so that they retain their original flavour and aroma. This process can lead to some remarkable outcomes.
So, not only does the Hei-VAP rotary evaporator meet the most demanding applications in the chemistry laboratory, it also makes great coffee!
