R e s t a u r a n t D a i l y N e w s 8 9 Tu e s d a y, M a y 2 4 , 2 0 1 6 CREATE FRESH, NEW IDEAS WITH VIDACASA BY AMERICAN METALCRAFT In addition to the 300 new products debuting this year's NRA Show, American Metalcraft (booth #2412) will also be featuring Vidacasa ® by American Metalcraft. Vidacasa by American Metalcraft is the first temperature-con- trolled buffetware that works independ- ently of electricity, cords, gels, fire or ice. It was developed for chefs and caterers who need modern, safe and efficient ways to keep food hot or cold, indoors or outside. Designed for buffet presentations, Vidacasa features a variety of modular bases, plates and accessories. Each piece in the line can accept both iThermo ® Hot and Cold Cells for consistent food tem- peratures. Completely modular, Vidacasa includes components that can mix and match with one another quickly to change up buffets. You can easily change from cold appetizers to hot entrees to cold desserts. With different iThermo cells, you can serve hot and cold food in the same buffet line. Mix in other American Metalcraft platters, bowls and casseroles and you can update buffet lines in min- utes. You can also accessorize your Vidacasa Buffetware with acrylic lids, stainless steel risers and frames and wood crates. The wood crates come in four dif- ferent finishes that attractively hold one or two hot cells depending on size. Stop by American Metalcraft (booth #2412) to learn more about Vidacasa by American Metalcraft and see how it can help change the way you keep food hot or cold for your buffet presentations. American Metalcraft wants to help inspire you to create fresh, new ideas that are not only special for your customers, but one-of-a-kind.

HI-DEFINITION CONTAINERS FOR ALL USES FROM VISSTUN Visstun ® 's line is growing to provide even more fantastic options for the food- service market. This year at the NRA Show, Visstun is introducing seven new container sizes and two fry scoop cups to a line that now includes 10 containers in 23 different sizes. These new containers, which range from a cute three-ounce cup to a short 32-ounce cup, in addition to the nine drink cups in the previous line and four FoldTop ® sizes, are great for sam- pling, deli, soup and even soft-serve ice cream. Each container size is now also available in a new microwave paper material that differs from most other paper materials on the market because the containers will withstand use, not just in the microwave, but in the refrigerator and freezer as well. Visstun's container line offers plenty of options for all types of businesses in the ice cream industry. The three-ounce, five-ounce and eight-ounce containers are perfect for gelatos or samples sizes, while the eight-ounce, 12-ounce, 16-ounce and 20-ounce work great with ice cream and froyo. All of these sizes can be paired with several lid options, like the new U- dome lids, which are a Visstun exclusive. For ice cream retail or packaging, the eight-ounce, 16-ounce, 20-ounce and 32- ounce quart size will supply you with a full variety of sizes to sell in stores. These sizes come matched with our V3™ pack- aging lids, which are a fantastic finishing touch to your branding. And Visstun's full line of cus- tom drink sizes work excellently with shakes or malts. The smaller three-ounce and five- ounce containers work great with in- house or to-go sauces. Meal sides, like potato salads or baked beans, would fit nicely with the eight-ounce and 12-ounce containers. If you're offering full serv- ings of items like soups or pastas, the 16- ounce and 20-ounce will give your prod- uct the most value. These containers are offered in microwavable paper as well, which will allow your customers to enjoy your amazing food heated at home. The fry scoop cups come in two sizes, 16-ounce and 24-ounce, and work great with French fries, chicken nuggets or tenders, chips and other side dishes. The scoops allow you to add branding or promotion to your sides, and help eliminate the mess that the standard fry bags create. Visstun's FoldTop containers go beyond traditional take-out cartons, and offer one of the most unique packaging options available on the market. The full color graphics will allow you to brand and add promotion to items being taken home, and the built-in folding flap will allow your customers to enjoy your great food on the go or at home. These items work great for salads, popcorn, ice cream, pas- tas and any type of takeout or leftovers. With all of the different sizes and options available, Visstun has a container that will fit your needs. For more information, visit booth #9719. After the show, visit www.visstuncups.com.
