NitrocorkA new and innovative concept when cooking with nitrogen. News
Nitrocork is a new range of products developed by the renowned brand Bahí&Güell in partnership with Amorim Cork Composites.
It is the first range of products that uses cork as an insulating material to cook food using liquid nitrogen.
Cork is the best material for thermal insulation purposes and Bahí&Güell came up with this idea: Why not take advantage of this exceptional material for cooking purposes? Amorim Cork Composites was the ideal partner to find the appropriate material and right density of cork to obtain the perfect insulation for these products. This resulted in the Nitrocork range, targeted to the world of gastronomy, and specially designed for professionals that work with nitrogen at sub-zero temperatures.
“We use this unique material for various reasons. Liquid nitrogen exists at 196º below zero. That’s why it’s very important to use a perfect natural insulation such as cork. In addition, cork’s sensorial characteristics, in particular its warmth and touch, met the requirements we were looking for when we designed the Nitrocork range. Without ignoring cork’s attractive and differentiating power. Another important attribute of cork is its lightness. Nitrocork has been designed to be used as a tool for showcooking, so it has to be light and easily transportable. We thought that cork was the perfect solution.”
