FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The Simplicity of Sharpness
Demonstrating the Tormek® T2 Pro Kitchen Knife Sharpener at the 100th Annual National Restaurant Association Show
TROY, Mich. January 16, 2019 – After a successful launch of the Tormek® T2 Pro Kitchen Knife Sharpener at the National Restaurant Association Show in 2018, Affinity Culinary is excited to demonstrate the simplicity of sharpness in Booth 9837 at the upcoming Centennial Show in Chicago this May 18-21, 2019. Learn how to make knives the easy part of operating hospitality kitchens with fast, intuitive, and professional knife sharpening, enabling chefs to work with safe and effective kitchen knives on demand.
Sharp knives minimize food waste, improve presentation, preserve flavor, and reduce fatigue in a safer kitchen with fewer accidents. Dull knives require more force and are prone to slipping. Each day spent in anticipation of a weekly knife delivery service is a day spent generating needless waste with knives that don’t stay on track in an unsafe kitchen. On-demand sharpness allows food workers take control of the most ubiquitous tool found in every kitchen and used in the creation of virtually every dish.
The Tormek® T2 Pro Kitchen Knife Sharpener is a quiet-running, unobtrusive diamond wheel electric knife sharpener designed to restore blade sharpness in a minute with little training. Featuring a locking angle guide for quick and easy setup, its intuitive design allows every operator to produce consistent knife sharpness optimized for any blade. Its slow turning diamond sharpening wheel is optimized to remove only the necessary steel without generating temper-busting heat, preserving the useful life expectancy of a valued capital expense.
“In developing the T2, Tormek consulted with professional chefs to identify the important functions and features they would need to adopt an in-kitchen sharpening system,” said Ken Neilson, Product Manager at Affinity Culinary, Tormek’s exclusive U.S. importer. “The result is a highly efficient tool ideal for any commercial or noncommercial kitchen looking to ensure their chefs and food workers are using safe and effective cutlery.”
Indeed, the Swedish Culinary Team, led by Chef Fredrik Andersson, used the T2 in preparation for their recent first place win at the 2018 Culinary World Cup in Luxembourg. "Having sharp knives is vital for us to be able to perform,” said Andersson. “The Tormek T2 is an important part of our equipment, as it’s quick and reliable in getting us the edge we need.”
