For chefs that want to push boundaries, experiment with new and exciting techniques and create intense flavours and textures. The new Cliftonfoodfuge centrifuge allows the chef to discover an exciting new dimension to food by breaking it down to its component parts.
Clifton Food Range® have introduced a new centrifuge which is a compact table top high speed unit taking 4 x 250ml bottles (supplied) on a swing out rotor. After blitzing down food items e.g tomatoes, grapefruit in a blender or juicer, they can be placed into the tubes and spun at high speed in the Cliftonfoodfuge.
The Cliftonfoodfuge will separate particulates from liquids extracting all the flavour. It will separate the components of the food by density so that heavier components are at the base and liquid at the top. This produces clear intense flavoured liquids which can then be used as part of a dish or in a cocktail. The centrifuge will produce liquids pastes and other buttery like textures.
The number of components produced can vary on the food type. For example peas separate into three items, the shells at the base, a thin layer of a puree type substance and then the clear pea liquid. Use these in the creation of exciting new dishes which fool the senses or use the liquids for creating unusual cocktails.
Play with peoples’ senses – when foods are spun down, flavours alter and colours change dramatically. For example, tomatoes spin down to create an intense clear transparent liquid.
High quality build and features: Rapid acceleration and deceleration ensuring components stay separated. Max speed 5000 rpm. Speed can be adjusted. Full safety features includes a rotor imbalance warning and lid lock. High speed centrifuge taking 4 x 250ml bottles on a swing out rotor.
Overall – 475w x 561d x 330h

This cutting edge benchtop freeze dryer, known as the Clifton Freeze dryer, offers sophistication and simplicity of use. It allows innovation in texture, flavour and appearance. Through experimentation and creativity you have the opportunity to be unique in the industry. Create your own flaked or powdered mushrooms, bananas, tomatoes, strawberries etc, giving full flavour and unusual mouthfeel and use as components to compliment your own culinary creativity.
FREEZE DRYER SYSTEM
Added to stocks, sauces and other prepared meals, the freeze dried items will rehydrate to be almost as fresh as the day they were first prepared. Make and blend your own freeze dried components as opposed to buying them.
Bulk prepared components have an extended shelf life when properly stored in airtight containers. Freeze drying does not usually cause shrinkage or toughening.
In addition, flavours, smells and nutritional content remains unchanged. Freeze drying also causes less damage to the food item than other dehydration methods which use heat and can change the properties of the foodstuff.
Freeze dried products can be re-hydrated (reconstituted) quickly and easily.
If a freeze dried substance is sealed in a vacuumed, airtight container (eg vacuum bag) which prevents the reabsorption of moisture, the food may be stored at room temperature without refrigeration, and be protected against spoilage.
The freeze drying process involves prefreezing in the condenser or a suitable freezer.
This converts water to ice and the vacuum process removes the ice as vapour without going through the liquid stage – this process is called sublimation.
