A blast chiller is simply an extra cold freezer that freezes food very quickly. They are best for keeping ice cream, pre-prepared meals, fresh produce like fishes, fruits and vegetables, etc. in good conditions. You may wonder why your business needs one of those when you already have an ordinary freezer. The answer is simple. Blast chillers freeze your food and other produce faster and more efficiently. When you freeze food, the water inside it crystallises into ice. Normal freezers usually freeze food slowly and the slower the freezing process, the larger the ice crystals. These large ice crystals damage the food by causing cell bursting, therefore reducing quality and flavour. Blast chillers, on the other hand, freeze food rapidly, creating much smaller ice crystals and less damage to the food. So next time you’re wondering why your food is losing taste, the solution is simple. Get a blast chiller.
Blast chillers are also healthier alternative as extreme cold slows the growth of bacteria. You can transfer the food or material frozen with a blast chiller into a normal freezer afterwards, and it will still maintain the quality. This is what makes it a good choice for every commercial kitchen.
