Small footprint? Mini Chill to the rescue!

So you're interested in incorporating the Cook Chill system in your restaurant but concerned about limited space?  If so, this article is for you!  Discover the secret weapon that top chefs rely on for efficiently producing mouthwatering sauces, stews, soups, mashed potatoes, mac & cheese, and other foods of pumpable consistency. A critical step in the process involves rapidly cooling the bagged foods in an ice bath. While industrial tumble chillers are typically utilized in large central kitchens, smaller restaurants and catering providers can achieve the same results by adding a Mini Chill to quickly chill and then store the foods. The Mini Chill is the ideal compact solution that offers the same functionality as a tumble chiller. Let's take a look at how it works.

The Mini Chill is an affordable alternative 

Regardless of the size of your restaurant, the Mini Chill is here to help you achieve the same fantastic results as a major central kitchen. This compact and cost-effective solution provides an excellent alternative to using a blast chiller and surpasses the efficiency of an ordinary ice bath.

Why use the Cook Chill method?

Freshness, quality, and optimum sanitation are all achieved through the innovative Cook Chill method. Once the raw ingredients are carefully placed in the cooking kettle, they are never again exposed to unnecessary handling. The Plascon Cook Chill bags are the perfect solution for packaging, storing, distributing, and reheating your culinary creations. Plascon's multilayered material manufacturing process also prevents crossover of flavors or odors in distribution. Foods are packaged at a temperature above pasteurization to guarantee freshness, and remain untouched by air until the bag is opened for serving.
