Peel's Restaurant at Hampton Manor in Solihull, UK chooses OHAUS scales

What OHAUS has to do with the one-starred Michelin restaurant in West Midlands, England?

In the heart of England, in the picturesque village of Hampton-in-Arden there is a unique place called Hampton Manor, a privately owned English country house hotel. A Tudor Gothic mansion that was built in 1855 as a grand country house by Sir Frederic Peel, son of a former Prime Minister, Sir Robert Peel, used to be for many years a care home run by the Parish church and now is an establishment owned by the Hill family. The estate underwent a massive restoration between 2008 and 2010 and in 2017 had a major makeover of the public spaces and the guest rooms were also entirely refurbished. Surrounded by 45 acres of gardens it is now a restaurant with 15 bedrooms.  

Speaking about the restaurant, Hampton Manor is home to Peel's fine dining restaurant under the head chef Rob Palmer who had led Peel's to its first Michelin Star and 4 AA Rosettes. What Rob is putting a special emphasis on is the quality of ingredients together with the cooking technique.  The restaurant is open Tuesday to Saturday and offers four- or seven-course tasting menus with wine flights. The guests vary depending on the occasion, they are booking with Peel's for business meetings, weddings, birthday parties or just for leisure to enjoy a night away. Behind delivering high quality food and providing service for up to 150 guests stands an amazing events and wedding team that is taking care of making these remarkable moments unforgettable.

There is an OHAUS touch in this palatable story. Peel's team is using in their everyday work OHAUS scales. The choice fell on Valor 2000 and portable models. They have been using OHAUS for a few years and have found them durable and well-priced. The high quality that Rob's team is providing requires the scales and balances to be accurate and robust at the same time, because of two very busy kitchens it's a must. "They have improved the accuracy of what we are weighing and also brought the cost down of what we were originally spending on scales as other brands were always breaking." says the head chef. What is of great significance is the fact that the OHAUS Valor scales are "easy to clean without the worry of damaging them by getting them too wet".

The OHAUS Valor 2000 water resistant food scales set a new industry standard with the winning combination of speed and durability. The sturdy polycarbonate keypad offers protection from knives and other sharp instruments used in food preparation. Stabilization time is less than a half-second. Large front and rear LED displays allow for easy viewing so two operators can share one scale.
