Crustastun - S/S - Standard UK
Introducing the Crustastun, a groundbreaking appliance designed to revolutionize the way we stun crustaceans. Unlike traditional methods, this innovative device ensures the humane treatment of lobsters, crayfish, and crabs before cooking. With the Crustastun, you can enjoy guilt-free seafood knowing it's been prepared with the utmost compassion.
Features and Benefits
As diners have become more aware of, and increasingly concerned with, the treatment of animals and the slaughter methods used within the food industry, the need for humane and fair practices has never been greater. As evidence that crustaceans can feel pain has grown, so too have calls for traditional cooking methods, such as boiling, to be classed as inhumane and made illegal. Switzerland recently became the first country to ban the boiling of live lobsters, whilst animal welfare organisations such as Crustacean Compassion are campaigning for better treatment of crustaceans in the UK.
Improve Meat Quality
During multiple blind taste tests, the quality of meat on the plate was dramatically improved when using the Crustastun vs Boiling. Taking just 0.5 second to be knocked un conscious the crustacean has significantly less stress hormone released which ensures the meat stays tender. A softer texture and better tasting end product is produced with the Crustastun.
Quick and Easy
Compared to boiling, which can take up to three minutes to kill even a small lobster, and cutting the animal in half which is unreliable, Crustastun interrupts the nerve function of the animal within half a second, meaning the shellfish can not feel pain. The animal is also killed in under 10 seconds, making it a dramatically quicker process compared to existing methods.
Recognised By Welfare Groups
Crustastun is recognised by a number of leading welfare groups, including the RSPCA, as a humane and swift method of stunning crustaceans. Switzerland became the first country to ban the boiling of live lobsters, whilst animal welfare organisations such as Crustacean Compassion are campaigning for better treatment of crustaceans in the UK.
