FEM introduces Alto-Shaam’s Quickchiller Blast Chiller


FEM has launched the Alto-Shaam Quickchiller Blast Chiller. Available in a range of four models, the Quickchiller’s powerful system works fast, reducing the time food spends in the ‘danger zone’ (57°C to 4°C) and minimising the threat of bacteria growth.


A user-friendly touchscreen panel provides microprocessor controls, ensuring reliable and accurate temperature control. A selection of hot and soft chill programming options also make it easy to safely and rapidly chill or freeze food. The operating modes include shock mode, a soft-serve mode for less creamy dishes, a quick-cool mode for coarser dishes, hold mode for chilled or frozen dishes, and automatic defrost.


The four models in the Quickchiller range offer a solution for a kitchen set-up of any size. The QCI-20 appliance is the most compact unit with a capacity of 20kg, and with a height of 877mm is perfect as a space-saving undercounter option. The QCI-100 is the largest member of the collection, measuring 1250mm wide by 1180mm deep by 2635mm tall. With a capacity of 160kg and 40 x 1/1 GN pans, it is ideal for an establishment with a heavy output.
