Popular German gourmet magazine "Essen&Trinken" (eat&drink) tested the CHROMA ProCuTe Titanium Cutting gear (spice and herb cutter).
All three tester were extremely satisfied by their results. Many Michelin starred chefs iN Europe are using CHROMA ProCuTe as it is far the best.
It helps them to save material as the aroma is stronger when cut.  Also they can do their own mixtures fresh and just the amount they need.
A new perfect product. Typical Chroma!

CHROMA type 301 P-30 with AST

chroma type 301 p 30 n

The all new CHROMA type 301 with patented AST(R)

This chef knife CHROMA type 301 P-30 with AST ( AntiStickTechnic) is a completely new type of cutting tool which has been newly developed in order to perfectly cut hydrous and difficult to cut vegetables such as cucumbers or carrots. The serrated Anti-Stick structure on the right side of the blade provides the development of a holohedral watery film. While cutting, the slices will easily fall off the blade and will not pile up as when cutting with ordinary knives.
This new P-30 chef knife by CHROMA type 301 has been ground only on one side like a traditional japanese knife and therefore is very similar to use like a sashimi knife. While cutting, this special grind on the blade will tend to pull it a little to the right side – this can easily be adjusted by counter steering to the left. After minimal use, you will be used to it and you will love your new knife for the great performance of the Anti-Stick Technic system.
Please note the following instructions to ensure the knife remains in optimal condition:
• Special grinding with Anti-Stick Technic
• for sharpening use a high quality stone like CHROMA ST-1000 only
• Left sided grinding is to be sharpened 80% on the left and 20% on the right side.
The CHROMA type 301 chef knife P-18 was awarded the top score of 4.4 out of 5 points and has been voted „Best in Text" in the comparative test of leading kitchen knives carried out by the famous swedish test institute „Test Fakta".

Fight against hunger - CHROMA SUPPER CLUB

A 14-course gourmet dinner with matching wines that lasted till two in the morning was an epic launch for the Chroma Knives Charity Supper Club.
In what is hope to become a quarterly fund-raising fixture, Action Against Hunger benefited from this gathering of foodie movers and shakers from Manchester and London at the home of Chroma Knives UK importer Franco Sotgiu.
Star attraction was glamorous TV cook Gizzi Erskine, of Cook Yourself Thin fame, accompanied by Irish food lover Niamh Shields, who The Times named as one of the world’s 10 best bloggers for her eatlikeagirl.com.
Cooking for them on this sumptuous occasion were ex-Fat Duck husband and wife duo Laurence Tottingham and Mary-Ellen McTague, who brought their serving team from Aumbry in Prestwich, current MFDF Restaurant of the Year.

Among the impressed punters was a man no stranger to culinary innovation, Aiden Byrne, the youngest chef ever to win a Michelin star.
Franco's own foodie credentials were emphasised by the presence on the menu of pork from his own pigs. Supper club guest were introduced to the current batch at the bottom of his garden!
In-demand Gizzi, with several new TV projects on the go including one mooted as Masterchef meet The Apprentice, was rushing back from her brush with the Aumbry Scotch egg to judge – what else – a Scotch egg contest with 44 competitors.
We’ll keep you in touch about plans for the next Chroma Charity Supper Club. Chroma Cnives and their various allied brands are essential kit for top chefs. Visit: http://www.chromaknives.co.uk.
