What is a blast chiller?
It’s exactly what it sounds like. The chiller blasts food with lightning fast and very cold air. It’s the opposite of a microwave.
When would this come in handy you might ask. Ever buy a drink that wasn’t refrigerated, but you wanted to enjoy a nice cold drink right away? A blast chiller would be a great excuse for this type of scenario.
A blast chiller avoids bacteria from growing on your food, because it keeps food from the “danger zone.” The “danger zone” for bacteria to grow on food is 41°F to 135°F range. If food stays in this range for to long it becomes contaminated. After food is left in the danger zone for more than 4 hours it should be disposed of.
