The blast chiller was invented to meet the needs of professional kitchens, making it possible to quickly bring a just-cooked dish to a core temperature of 3°C, without exposing it to agents that would compromise its quality, safety and preservation. This technique also reduces operational times and makes kitchen organisation more efficient.
Though designed primarily for this purpose, the Fhiaba multifunction blast chiller goes even further: working at temperatures between -40°C and 70°C1, with perfectly balanced moisture and ventilation, it’s a professional machine for creative home chefs. With the Fhiaba blast chiller you can freeze, cook at low temperatures, proof dough from a Neapolitan pizzeria, flawlessly temper chocolate, and prepare incredibly fresh yogurt and ice cream. A new, complete cooking experience.

The four dimensions of quality
A perfect balance of ingredients
The secret behind Fhiaba’s ability to soft freeze food, keeping it in its fresh, original state, is cutting-edge technology which balances four “key factors”: temperature, moisture, ventilation and time. Simply cooling or heating isn’t enough. For food to maintain its sensory qualities and nutritional properties, it’s necessary to create the climatic conditions that, instant after instant, ensure a delicate balance between the four variables at play. Only then can a healthy, flavour-filled experience be brought to the table.

11 Functions to bring nature to the table
A multi-purpose tool, for healthy, varied nutrition
From rapid freezing to slow heat, the Fhiaba blast chiller’s real secret is allowing you to express your versatility in the kitchen. Enjoy the guarantee of always being able to prepare wholesome dishes simply and quickly, with all the freshness and nutritional value that nature has to offer. You already know eating well means healthy, first and foremost, and that varied meals that protect the wellbeing of your loved ones. With the eleven functions of the Fhiaba blast chiller, it’s even easier done than said.
Cooling freshly cooked food to room temperature or in the fridge isn’t always a good idea: the slow transition from 65°C to 10°C creates the ideal conditions for bacteria to grow, potentially damaging the product.
The quick blast chilling function solves this problem once and for all, bringing food to the safe temperature of 3°C in a short amount of time, which you can measure with a temperature probe for meat. It’s the only way to ensure your food maintains its original quality, even increasing its shelf life by up to 70%!
Blast freezing is a much more delicate process than the regular freezing process. Blast freezing means bringing a product to -40°C in a short amount of time, creating micro-crystallisation that doesn’t damage the biological structure and fibres of the food. Nutritional value and sensory properties – flavours, scents and texture – are left intact.
Pre-cooling makes it possible to optimise and reduce the run times of the Fhiaba blast chiller’s different programs. Activate this feature, which works by cooling the inner parts of the appliance, when preparing your favourite recipes to reduce the run cycle of operations such as blast chilling or freezing of very hot foods.
The cooling function lowers the temperature of cooked food – faster. For example, quickly cool freshly cooked vegetables to prevent rapid oxidation and the loss of the mineral salts and vitamins they contain.

With the Fhiaba blast chiller you can program the rising of your dough to perfection, setting several parameters: the quantity of yeast, the length of the process (that helps improve the taste and longevity of the bread), and the scheduled baking time. And if bread isn’t enough, you can also delve into the baking of focaccia, cakes and biscuits, sponge cake, and croissants.
With the ‘raw fish’ function, the temperature in the blast chiller drops to -30°C, preventing the formation of bacteria in food meant to be consumed raw.
Food brought to the table is 100% safe, protecting your fresh catch from possible Anisakis contamination.
