BeefCraft: 800 °C for a perfect steak

How do you cook a perfect steak? This is the question millions of meat afficionados all over the world are asking themselves. The answer is quite simple – in the new BeefCraft by Küppersbusch. With BeefCraft and BeefCraft+, the portfolio of the food service equipment manufacturer from Gelsenkirchen in Germany now includes two high-power grills in a class of their own.

BeefCraft is the ideal grill for restaurants and hotels serving a lot of grilled meat and fish. Up to 16 entrecotes can easily be cooked at the same time, and large tomahawk or T-bone steaks can also be grilled in the larger version – BeefCraft+, explains Küppersbusch Managing Director Marc-Oliver Schneider.

The technology

BeefCraft requires no pre-installations before being put into operation. All that is needed is a 400-V power supply – plug it in, switch it on, and off you go! The high-power quartz radiator grills meat, fish, etc. from the top at temperatures powered up to a maximum 800 C***. “The high temperatures on the surface of the grilled food mean that caramelisation sets in immediately. This results in a crispy crust and the inside stays juicy and tender,” says Marc-Oliver Schneider.

The grill rack comes with a choice of six rack heights, so that even sensitive food such as fish and vegetables will be cooked to perfection. The attached resting section is a guarantee of ergonomic working and shorter distances to walk. Marc-Oliver Schneider: “It’s easy to take the meat out and put it down direct onto the resting section.” The BeefCraft base has been designed with clay balls – BeefCraftStones – for easy cleaning. “The BeefCraftStones immediately suck up dripping fat. They are simply replaced whenever needed. This saves on inconvenient cleaning work.” says Marc-Oliver Schneider.

A perfect steak

It’s so easy to grill a perfect steak with BeefCraft – no matter whether rare, medium or well done.

Rare: Grill your steak* on each side for 2 minutes (bottom shelf, bottom lever position, highest grill setting). Allow the steak to rest for at least 4 minutes after grilling, and then allow it to regenerate for another 30 to 40 seconds (bottom shelf runner, bottom lever position). Ready!

Medium: Grill your steak* on each side for 3 minutes (bottom shelf, bottom lever position, highest grill setting). Allow the steak to rest for at least 5 to 6 minutes after grilling, and then allow it to regenerate for approx. another 55 seconds (bottom shelf runner, bottom lever position). Ready!

Well done: Grill your steak* on each side for 4 minutes (bottom shelf, middle lever position, highest grill setting). Allow the steak to rest for at least 7 to 8 minutes after grilling, and then allow it to regenerate for approx. 60 to 70 seconds (bottom shelf runner, bottom lever position). Ready!
