Irinox is bringing an element of iPad-style gadgetry to the blast chiller and shock freezer game by introducing touchscreen technology to its MultiFresh range.
Its ‘MyA’ touch-sensitive user interface is fitted as standard to all units, combining a bright, 7-inch display with intuitive icons to simplify usage for operators.
With the option to blast chill or shock freeze over 90 different food types, the user interface takes into account the consistency and nutritional values of individual pre-set items before undertaking the optimum cooling cycle to accommodate these.
With options to alter the duration, temperature and levels of air circulation, the MyA allows the operator to select the optimum cycle for each food type.
Michael Eyre, product director of Jestic, which distributes Irinox in the UK, said the development makes blast chilling much more accessible to caterers of all types.
“In the past, blast chilling and shock freezing was often associated with specialist produce and high-end establishments, however with the developments in technology and introduction of more varied cooking techniques, the humble blast chiller is becoming common place in many kitchens.
“The introduction of the MyA control panel to the Irinox MultiFresh range now allows any operator in the kitchen to effectively use features of the appliance, in doing so maintaining the best conditions for food being stored in a chilled or frozen state.”
