Winterhalter helps to make Number Six Number One

Owner of acclaimed Cornish restaurant thrilled with new equipment

Since moving to the charming Cornish port of Padstow in 2009, Paul Ainsworth has been creating his vision of the perfect restaurant. “My plan was never to make a gastronomic temple where the customers feel like they’re not worthy enough to be there, it’s about going out, eating fantastic food and having a great time.” His restaurant, Paul Ainsworth at Number Six, has been awarded 4 AA rosettes and a Michelin Star for its menu, which showcases the best of locally sourced ingredients with a modern take on classic British dishes.

Earlier this year, the restaurant was refurbished. Paul approached Salix, one of the UK’s leading commercial kitchen designers, to help him create his ideal kitchen. “I heard about Salix from Tom Kerridge, who knew that we were looking for a world-class kitchen.

Sanitising warewasher for care homes – and there’s no upfront cost

Winterhalter’s UC machines with thermal disinfection programme available with Pay Per Wash

For care homes, sanitisation is an essential. Winterhalter’s UC undercounter machines are available with a thermal disinfection option – and care homes can now install them under the Pay Per Wash initiative, which means there’s no upfront cost, operators simply pay for each wash as they go along.

The UC is a front-loading machine that’s available in four different sizes, small, medium, large and extra-large. The thermal disinfection wash cycle meets the HMT2030 regulations by washing at 73ºC for 3 minutes, delivering total hygiene control. Using this wash programme, the UC can handle up to 10 racks per hour, with the racks ranging in size from 400x400mm in the small model to 500x540mm in the extra-large. When the thermal disinfection programme is not required, the UC can handle up to 48 racks per hour. Its compact size means it can fit into small kitchens, while its high output means it can wash quickly and effectively. (more…)

Fast, effective cleaning power is a hit with The Commission T4 bar restaurant

Airedale sources, delivers and installs warewasher in under 24 hours
