Iacobucci HF Aerospace has been busy developing new aircraft galley equipment. The first new release is an update of its Robusta and Espresso coffee makers, with a USB port that enables specific settings for temperatures and timings to be uploaded to the machines so they can optimize the brew for each brand and blend of coffee pod. The optimized settings help ensure perfect extraction of coffee oils, preserve the pureness of the water, and even save power and improve the reliability and endurance of the devices.
The company has also invested in upgrading its Gusto induction oven so that different kinds of foods can be prepared simultaneously (for example, meat, fish and side dishes such as vegetables or potatoes). Using accessories, Gusto can also be used to bake, toast, grill, steam or re-heat food, even flans, pancakes and gnocchi. Key to the upgrades is a new software installed on the device that runs specific programs for temperature and timing to execute automatically optimized recipes within a few minutes.
Thomas Ulherr, master chef and in-house expert at Iacobucci HF Aerospace explains that the four different layers of the oven enable it “to cook, heat or fry up to nine different proteins on each flight, making it possible to have them crispy or tender or juicy according to the tastes of the guests, who can have their meals customized.”
