The Ateco Heart Vol au Vent Cutter is the ideal tool for shaping and cutting classic vol au vent puff pastries. Invented by the early 19th century pioneer of haute cuisine, Marie Antoine Careme, vol au vent translates to flying in the wind. They are delicate puff pastries that resemble a small crock and lid. Traditionally filled with savory ingredients, the light pastries also work well as a dessert. Manufactured from durable stainless steel. Ateco products begin with the finest materials, from metals to fabrics to plastic films and undergo testing for durability, reliability, and quality. They are made to last under the punishing conditions of restaurant and high-output commercial kitchens.
