Blast Chiller FAQs
For help finding the best blast chiller for your business, we’ve answered our most frequently asked questions below.
The slow cooling of food naturally results in bacteria growth, with a particularly aggressive growth rate when food reaches between 5°C and 63°C. This is known as the “danger zone”, and the longer that food is kept within this range, the higher the chances are that your food will cause illness upon consuming. Blast chilling ensures that the food remains in the “danger zone” for as little time as possible, and therefore reducing the amount of bacteria.
Through continuous cool air blasted over the food – something which cannot be done in a residential refrigerator – blast chillers ensure your kitchen is compliant with health and safety regulations.
JLA commercial blast chillers are designed to blast chill from +90°C to +3°C in 90 minutes.
A blast chiller and blast freezer are sometimes confused due to the fact that they both reduce the temperature of food in a quick and safe way. However, a blast chiller fridge typically reduces food to a temperature of 3ºC for temporary safe storage, or until suitable to be refrigerated elsewhere.
A blast chill freezer on the other hand, reduces food to a far colder temperature of up to -18ºC. This is sometimes referred to as “shock freezing”. A blast freezer will preserve food for around three times longer than a blast chill refrigerator making it the preferred choice for longer-term food storage.
JLA blast chillers have radiused corners as part of their interior design to ensure that they are easy to clean, and reduce any potential dirt traps.
