How do you apply cook-and-chill solutions to your F&B business?

Maintaining optimal performance and efficiency is essential to high-volume commercial kitchens. Recognizing the increasing issue of negative stress in the foodservice industry, Electrolux Professional provides solutions such as our SkyLine Cook and Chill system to revolutionize the way you work. Our integrated Cook and Chill system streamlines your cooking and refrigerating processes regardless of your business type. Here is how to apply it to your business.

What is Cook and Chill?

Cook and Chill is a food preservation process that involves rapidly chilling cooked food using a blast chiller, allowing it to be reheated in an oven at a later stage. This method enables chefs and kitchen staff to prepare food during off-peak times and reheat it when required, thus separating food preparation and service. This process has advantages whether you manage a small or large professional kitchen.

Restaurants: ensuring food safety and time-savings

Quick or full-service restaurants can benefit from the cook-and-chill process in various ways. In fast-paced restaurants, integrating an efficient cook-and-chill process is crucial to comply with existing local food quality and safety regulations. The quick chilling process reduces the time food spends in the “danger zone” (between +8 °C and +68 °C) where bacterial growth is prevalent. Furthermore, if the preparation of your dishes takes a long time, you can achieve time-savings through preparing batches in advance, to be regenerated after.

Catering: enhancing productivity

Originally designed for the catering industry, the cook-and-chill process is also beneficial for temporary kitchens and those preparing elaborate dishes. Cook and Chill allows portioning and grouping of food preparation workflows, resulting in more efficient use of labor for large catering operations. You can prepare food in advance, cool it quickly for storage, and reheat it when ready to serve, saving time and enhancing workflow productivity.

Banqueting: preserving freshness of food

Chefs in the fast-paced banqueting world contend with the challenges of quantity and quality. Not only do they deliver multiple courses, they must also ensure food quality, presentation, and temperature. Fortunately, many chefs today are turning to cook-chill processes, such as the innovative SkyLine Cook and Chill solution provided by Electrolux Professional, which ensures that food is safe, well-preserved, and maintains the freshness of a newly cooked dish. Food can be safely preserved for longer, extending the product’s shelf life and minimizing food waste.
