Investing In a Blast Cooler

While a blast chiller can seem like a big investment, it actually can lead to cost savings overtime — not to mention increased food quality.  Blast chillers allow you to quickly cool down baked goods such as cakes and brownies, make creamy ice creams, and rapidly cool down beverages. All Temp, your experts in Orlando commercial refrigeration, can help you decide if investing in a blast cooler is right for your business.

Evaluate Your Needs

Best for cook-chill applications, blast chillers can help to safely bring temperatures out of the safety zone — anywhere between 41°F and 135°F. Keeping food within these temperatures prevents bacteria and pathogens from growing. Blast chillers can help to preserve your food’s quality, including both texture freshness of food. For your business, this means the ability to prepare menu items during slow periods, then chill to preserve items. Blast chillers are also great at rapidly freezing foods for long-term storage and for minimizing both shrinkage and moisture loss. 

Consider Style, Size, and Capacity

No matter your workspace, volume, or budget, there is a blast chiller that will perfectly fit your business’s needs. For lower budgets, consider blast chillers that have a capacity between 35 and 48 pounds. These models are often compact. Reach-in models offer more storage, roughly 220-pound capacity, but do take up more room. To find the perfect blast chiller, work with an All Temp representative. We’ll be able to find the perfect blast chiller for your space.

Additional Features

Finally, consider additional features. Stainless steel blast chillers are often recommended, due to their easy-to-clean nature. Look for a blast chiller with removable door gaskets. If purchasing a larger blast chiller, ensure that the panels are at least four inches thick with foamed-in-place polyurethane insulation to protect your investment. 

Not only will investing in a blast chiller improve your food quality, but it can also lead to increased profits thanks to food and labor savings.
