A brief look at the history of ThermoFlex Shallow Dip Technology

Back in the 1980s, Paul Schacht III was a leading engineer / industrial designer working with Mercedes Benz & BMW to fine-tune production cars. Paul’s passion for cars was equalled by his love of cooking. A lover of teppanyaki-style cooking, and wanting to improve it, he used his engineering expertise to develop a cooking device that is not only sleek and elegant in design but absolutely unique in its operation. He called it “The Hot Table”. After the Teppanyaki Table was made he developed the Built-In and Portable models using the same Shallow Dip Technology.

What is Shallow Dip Technology?

The worldwide patented UltraDine Teppanyaki Plus is based on a principle never before seen in cooking products- the bowing down of the cooking centre – the Shallow Dip.

Paul combined specially pressed 304 food-grade high-quality stainless steel with a new high tech heating element and when switched on, causes the cooking centre to bend and bow downward, collecting all the cooking juices in the centre of the plate and intensifying flavours dramatically. And it has an incredibly versatile range of cooking! Steak, eggs, chops, asian stir fries are amazing, curries, seafood, desserts – in fact almost anything.

In addition, this ThermoFlex Shallow Dip Technology means that the stainless-steel cooktop has a special warming area surrounding the centre (Dual Zone cooking) that reaches only 50% of the set cooking temperature which is ideal for keeping ready to serve food warm or to finish cooking. The area surrounding the cooking and warming areas remains cool – there is no heat transfer to the edge of the teppanyaki cooktop.

And once you’ve finished cooking and have turned off the grill, the centre reverts to perfectly flat – it’s so simple!

What’s more is that you can forget about spending an hour or so at the sink cleaning several different pots and pans and using harsh cleaning chemicals, as once you’ve finished with our UltraDine Teppanyaki Grills all you need is to carefully wipe the surface with a little bit of warm water, a paper towel or soft cloth and some tongs.

All of Cook N Dine’s teppanyaki grills and tables feature this marvellous technology. If you’re interested or have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact us today. We’d love to help!
