It’s not always possible to prepare everything to order during busy dinner services or an intense lunchtime rush. Sometimes, meals and ready-to-cook ingredients need to be prepared in advance.
One of the best solutions for this is a blast freezer. This is specifically designed to reduce food’s temperature quickly by rapidly blowing cold air across it. By bringing the temperature down in such a short period, the flavour, texture and hygiene get locked in. Blast freezers are a must in any commercial kitchen and can be found in most restaurants, cafes, takeaways, hotels, resorts and canteens.
What is a blast freezer?
Blast freezers preserve food – sometimes ingredients, and occasionally pre-cooked meals. They most regularly contain fresh produce (keeping it from going off) like fruits and vegetables, delicate meats and fish, ice cream and pre-cooked meals. They are different from regular freezers in that their primary function is to reduce the food’s temperature as fast as possible. In contrast, most standard freezers aim to hold and maintain a low temperature.
Blast freezing ingredients and pre-cooked meals make for a much more efficient service and a less complicated inventory. By having meals prepared in advance, a significant amount of pressure can be taken off the chefs’ and cooks’ shoulders, while blast freezing fresh products means they last as long as you need. Before ordering a blast freezer, consider the right one for your needs. Ensure it’ll fit in your kitchen and that there’s enough space for all the produce you need to store in it. Compact models are available. Other things to think about include shelving options and cost.
