With a broad array of models to choose from, you will find the right products to meet the exact needs of your food-service operation.
Cooling food too slowly is the main cause of food-borne illnesses. Blast chillers and shock freezers keep your food safe by accelerating food through the danger zone between 140°F and 40°F — the ideal temperature for bacteria reproduction.
Increased Shelf Life
After blast chilling, food can be safely preserved at a temperature of 37°F to 39°F for up to five days. With shock freezing, food can be preserved at 0°F for months to safely increase the shelf life of the food.
Blast chilling preserves your food’s flavor and aroma characteristics by preventing loss of aroma and moisture. Compared to conventional freezing, shock freezing produces micro-crystals that do not damage tissue structure. This allows your food to maintain a desirable texture even after thawing.
Efficiency and Productivity
Blast chillers and shock freezers make batch cooking more practical, enabling you to maximize the productivity of your kitchen staff and reduce labor costs without compromising quality.
Reduced Food Costs
Food can be kept fresh for longer periods of time to permit refrigeration of items that would normally be thrown out. These savings can be very significant over time.
Reduction of Product Weight Loss
Thermo-Kool blast chillers and shock freezers can prevent cooked products from losing as much as 8% of their weight during cooling. For cooked liquids up to 15% of evaporation losses can be prevented.
More Menu Choices
Blast chillers allow you to prepare more dishes in advance to keep them held at a safe temperature and then finish them on demand.
