Which Foods are kept in Blast Freezers?

If you are looking for a safe and quick effective method of cooling down your food Blast freezers offer the perfect solution for your catering establishment.

Blast freezers are most commonly used in hotels, big restaurants, fast-food restaurants, canteens, resorts and in catering. They are designed to freeze food and beverages (up to -18 C) allowing you to store processed meat for up to two months and salads and desserts for up to 1 year.

Here are some foods that can enjoy the benefits of being kept in blast freezers:

Fish and Seafood

The Japanese have been using blast-chilling shock freezers for years to preserve the quality of freshly caught fish that they want to use for sushi.

Many hotels and restaurants freeze clams, oysters and mussels and allow them to cool in the refrigerator. By using a blast freezer, you can serve the shellfish raw on the half shell, and no one will ever guess that it has been frozen.

Wine and BeveragesBenefits of Blast Freezers

There’s nothing quite like a glass of wine of two when eating a meal. Blast freezers are ideal for cooling down those bottles of wine and beer from room temperature within a short space of time.

Baked Goods

Blast freezers are also great for quickly cooling down baked goods after they come out of the oven. Rapid cooling of the food helps it retain the crisp texture of their crust and allows us to eat them at their optimal temperature for dessert.

Rapid cool down is great for baked pasta dishes that you want to make ahead and for sauces and braises. The constantly circulating cold air and shallow containers help to cool down cooked foods more quickly and efficiently than the traditional freezers.

Homemade Pasta

When it comes to making homemade pasta some chefs use air-dry, a refrigerator or blast freezers. This type of freezer allows chefs to reduce the waiting time periods between mixing, shaping, and baking. This reduces oxidation in the dough, so that the finished baked goods have a pure, sweet, buttery flavour.

Ice Cream

Blast freezers are commonly used for ice creams and sorbets. The fast process ensures that smaller ice crystals translate into smooth creamy textures that melt in your mouth and helps to bring out the sweetness and flavour.
