Hydroprocess is a well-known French company specialized in designing and manufacturing ultra high pressure industrial equipement.

With more than 30 years of experience, Hydroprocess committed to designing reliable, long-lasting, user-friendly machines. Their ultra high pressure machines will help artisanal and industrial businesses grow their activity whilst increasing their profitability and their day-to-day productivity.

The company develops the first French ultra high pressure pump in 1986, which was mainly used in waterjet cutting for the food sector.

Today, the ChefCut® , is considered as an essential tool for all the top pastry chefs, chocolatiers, and caterers in France and worldwide.


ChefCut® is the fruit of expertise gathered over more than 30 years experience in the field of waterjet cutting specifically for the food sector. It was designed to perfectly meet the needs of the food professionals (pastry chefs, chocolatiers, caterers, confectioners and ice cream makers). 

Ever since the first model was released in 2011, ChefCut® has replaced your traditional cutting tools (knife, cookie cutter, mandoline slicer). The machine uses a waterjet sprayed by a nozzle with a diameter of one tenth of a millimetre to cut fresh and frozen foods at a pressure of 3000 bar and up to 300 mm per second. 

Compact and easy to program, ChefCut® is also very simple to use. This pastry cutting tool has already been taken up by the top pastry chefs, chocolatiers, and caterers in France and all over the world.

The machine is equipped with WiFi and an internal computer with a library of pre-set patterns. Using the ChefCut Office® personalization software that comes with the machine, you can create your own shapes and fully express your creativity, without limits.
