PolyScience Smoking Gun

The Smoking Gun lets chefs infuse a smoky flavor into almost anything, acting as an alternative to traditional smoking methods. Salads, chocolate, sauces, butter, fruits, and even drinks can now be cool-smoked to create unique culinary innovations. With the Smoking Gun chefs, can use wood chips, teas, herbs, hay, and dried flowers to infuse their dishes. This product opens chefs to a number of new possibilities.

Woodstone Gas Plancha

The Woodstone Gas Plancha was originally developed for Chipotle. Now hitting the public market, the Woodstone Gas Plancha outperforms most planchas by reaching 650 degrees. Not to mention its ability to hold any temperature with zero recovery time! The plancha also has four different zones, each with its own temperature setting, meaning you can cook foods at four different temperatures all at the same time.

Turning even the most basic chef supplies digital, Comark has removed the work from logging temperature data. With the Waterproof Pocketherm Folding Thermometer, you simply measure the temperature and move on. All temperature data is stored for you and can be accessed via any web browser.
