In order to stay in business, you must stay profitable. This means as much money coming in as possible. Any food that is going to waste is destroying your profits. It is as simple as that! If you haven’t yet made reducing waste a major focus, now is the time to do so. The only question is- how?
Contact Coffey Refrigeration and let us help! When you reach out, we’ll go over your options. One of the most efficient is a blast chiller. A blast chiller is essentially a freezer that works in an instant! When it comes to increased efficiency, food safety, decreased food waste, a blast chiller offers huge advantages to your business. They work by rapidly decreasing temperatures of food products. This rapid cooling minimizes loss from evaporation compared to the “normal” cooling process the food would experience within a traditional refrigerator.
As well, rapid cooling helps decrease the size of ice crystals that form in food when it is cooled and frozen. Those larger ice crystals are not what you want to see. They actually damage the food when it is defrosted! You see, bigger ice cubes melt into water that causes excess moisture release. This can ruin both the flavor and texture of your food.
If you serve seafood, you know how crucial it is to keep them as fresh as the day they were caught. A blast chiller makes this possible like never before! In fact, you can freeze your seafood and then when it is thawed, it will still taste so great that your customers will have no idea it was ever frozen. This will send your efficiency through the roof when you’re no longer needing to throw out expensive fish, crab, shrimp, and shellfish!
What about drinks? Blast chillers do wonders for beverages! Blast chillers are great for quickly cooling down back stock of inventory that hasn’t been stored in a refrigerator. This comes in handy particularly for beer and wine that is ordered by a customer but has been stored at room temperature. No one wants to be handed a room temperature beer. With a blast chiller in your establishment, that will never happen again.
Can you continue to operate without a blast chiller? Yes, probably. Should you? No! While a blast chiller or freezer isn’t a kitchen essential, it can really up your restaurant’s ability to be efficient and cut down on inventory loss. Are you ready to learn more?
