Commercial Blast Chillers Improve Food Quality and Safety and Freezers

OUT-PERFORM THE COMPETITION

PrepRite Blast Chillers and Blast Freezers chill the core temperature of cooked food from 194° F to 37° F in 90 minutes of blast freezers all the way down to 0° F in just 240 minutes. Not only do PrepRite Blast Chillers and Freezers cool food faster, but they also allow you to start with food at a much higher core temperature – 194° F, as compared to 150°-164° F of our competitors’ products.

IMPROVE FOOD QUALITY AND SAFETY

When you need to chill food fast, regular refrigeration units won’t do. You need a commercial blast chiller or blast freezer from PrepRite by Everidge. These fast-freezing appliances help preserve just-cooked flavor while keeping food safe from bacterial growth and contamination.

UNIQUE DESIGN

PrepRite blast chillers and freezers employ Ambient Chill. This process removes heat rapidly using high-speed continuous and even air-flow – so continuous that it chills the food to its core in a very short time. It could be compared to a convection oven in which air is used for rapid heating  transmission. The difference in our Ambient Chill versus competitors’ direct air flow is that we are removing heat, not blowing cold air directly onto the product. This prevents crystallization on food and retains just-cooked food taste and quality.

PREPRITE IN ACTION - COCOA DOLCE

THE CHALLENGE

Cocoa Dulce, an artisan chocolate and pastry company in Wichita, KS needed to add production capacity to keep up with increased demand. Their challenge was to maximize production capacity, with limited operations expansion, and maintain the same high product quality.

Cocoa Dolce turned to Everidge’s culinary team to collaborate for long term storage solutions that would maintain product quality. Cocoa Dulce leveraged a combination of vacuum sealing and blast chilling to preserve product quality. Vacuum sealing removes oxygen, which deteriorates product over time. Blast chilling preserves product integrity and prepares product for long-term storage.

Cocoa Dulce confirmed product quality standards, by testing portioned product from a holding freezer at weekly increments over a 12-week period. The tests revealed Cocoa Dolce could store vacuum sealed & blast chilled product up to three months without jeopardizing product integrity and quality. This resulted in ~doubling production with existing operation capacity through bulk production and optimized scheduling that enabled Cocoa Dulce to better prepare for peak demand periods.

Everidge’s ThermalRite and PrepRite solutions:
ThermalRite 3-compartment walk-in cooler/freezer/ambient box.
PBF450 Modular blast chiller & freezer
PVS5225 vacuum sealer
(6) cold storage prep tables

THE END RESULT

Cocoa Dolce keeps sufficient product on hand to fulfill three storefronts and online orders. The production team can properly forecast for busy seasons without having to utilize overtime hours, saving time and money.

“The vacuum sealer and blast chiller were a lifesaver during the last few months! Without them we would have lost so much product and not made it through.” – Lisa Mickey, Chocolate Lead at Cocoa Dolce
