kochmesser.de - the German CHROMA importer - had a very special TV appearance. After a spectacular burglary in Wildau, Brandenburg, the large state owned MDR television helped to search for the stolen cnives. A huge TV crew and several actors copied the burglary for the MDR TV-show "cops live". This way the police hope to find the gangsters. So far still without any success.

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.
