    All the professional equipment designed for food refrigeration that we have selected for you, such as refrigerated counters and tables, blast chillers, refrigerated cabinets and freezers, ice cream machines and counters, display cabinets for pastry, pizza, sushi bars, soft drinks and more, are essential items for blast chilling, freezing or maintaining the low temperature of foods that need to be stored in cold environments to preserve their organoleptic properties.

    Refrigeration, freezing and blast chilling

    Refrigeration, freezing and blast chilling are the main methods used by professional chefs and cooks to preserve food, delay the inevitable spoilage of raw materials and avoid the development of bacteria harmful to humans.

    Refrigeration is a food preservation method that consists of keeping products at a low temperature, without freezing the water inside the food. To do this, they are kept at a temperature of between 0°C and 10°C. In addition to temperature, the storage environment must also be taken into account, especially humidity: an unsuitable space can lead to unpleasant consequences such as: loss of product characteristics, development of harmful micro-organisms, withering or browning. Keeping the appliances perfectly clean will ensure proper air circulation inside the cells or walls, which is essential for the machines to function properly.

    Freezing is the technique of preserving food by significantly lowering the temperature of the product. It develops through two stages: nucleation, whereby ice crystals are formed, and growth, which allows the crystals to become larger and larger. In order to freeze food, the food needs to be brought to a temperature of between -18° and -25°C: these numerical values are the ones that guarantee maximum safety in the preservation of all types of food, whether raw or cooked. Furthermore, it is important to know that, on an industrial level, the temperature is only considered blast chilled if it can be maintained at around -30°/-50°C: this is the case when rapid freezing or deep-freezing of food occurs, by definition.

    Blast ch illing is a specific procedure carried out using a machine, called a blast chiller, which enables food to be rapidly cooled: in about 90 minutes, the internal temperature of the food drops to around 3°, which is ideal for proper preservation. The rapidly induced cold acts with a bacteriostatic capacity, preventing germs from proliferating. The product can also be frozen in order to keep the organoleptic properties of the food intact.

    This preservation technique serves to

    • Lower the temperature of cooked food before subjecting it to freezing;
    • Reduce the temperature of raw food to avoid health risks;
    • Minimise the possibility of bacterial contamination of the product;
    • Preserve the properties that the food possesses, preventing them from being lost with the passage of hours or days;
    • Avoid the easy and quick spoilage of food, and the consequent waste of money and food.

    Energy label: what it is and when it is mandatory

    TheEnergy Label is a document that informs consumers about the characteristics and energy consumption of each model of household appliance manufactured for sale. In Italy, as in other European countries, the regulation on the energy label has undergone some changes and is now compulsory only for the following appliances placed on the EU market: refrigerators and freezers, washing machines, dryers, dishwashers, electric ovens, electric lamps, air conditioners, boilers and heating systems. For all articles, on the contrary, which are necessary for the mere display of products and not for their preservation, the labelling is not necessary.
