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 factors that would compromise its quality, safety and preservation. This technique also improves operations and raises kitchen efficiency.
Revolutionising our relationship with food through cutting-edge innovation.
With its combined functions, the Fhiaba blast chiller will take your cooking experience to a whole new level. Seven extra flavours that will make you wonder how you ever lived without them.
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, time after time, ensure a delicate balance between the four variables at play. Only then can a healthy, flavour-filled experience be brought to the table.
Soft freezing and refrigeration processes maintain the natural integrity, nutritional value, and sensory qualities of food: flavour, aroma, texture and consistency.
With the Fhiaba blast chiller you can chill, freeze and defrost the product you need, when you need it. Store food to suits your needs. By doing so, you’ll increase the life of food by up to 70%, with zero waste, respecting the value of food and mother nature.

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 therefore 100% safe, protecting your fresh catch from possible Anisakis contamination.
Quickly defrost just about any food, while also guaranteeing the safety and quality of the final product.

Starting lunch or dinner with rustic bread, the kind that’s warm and soft on the inside with a flaky crust, is the start of a welcoming, flavour-filled experience. To make delicious bread just like in the old days, water, salt, yeast and flour aren’t enough. A proofing microclimate with the perfect balance of warmth, humidity and ventilation are also necessary. 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.
The Fhiaba blast chiller is specially designed to complement to your conventional fridge. With an option that lets you vary the temperature from -40°C to +75°C, along with micro adjustments for humidity and ventilation, you’re always a top chef in the kitchen. Create the precise, custom settings required to safely store any kind of food.
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.
Pre-cooling of the appliance 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.
Blast freezing is a much more delicate process than the regular freezing process. Blast freezing means bringing a product to -18°C in a short amount of time by reducing the air temperature to -40°C, thus 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 maintained.
Cooling freshly cooked food to room temperature or in the fridge isn’t a good idea: the slow transition of food from 65°C to 10°C creates the ideal conditions for bacteria to grow, potentially damaging the product. The 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!
The Fhiaba blast chiller is more than just a chiller. With a maximum temperature value of 70°C at your disposal, you can try your hand at cooking meat and fish at low temperatures, using a temperature probe for precise measurements, when you need them.
