Features & Benefits

Touchscreen Control

The QuickChiller operates with an intuitive touchscreen control and four operational modes. Multiple pre-programmed menu selections allow ideal chilling conditions based upon the type and density of food.

Rapidly Remove Heat

Alto-Shaam QuickChillers™ are specifically designed to rapidly remove heat from foods using a combination of low temperature and high velocity air. This minimizes food time in the “Danger Zone” (135˚F - 40˚F/57˚C - 4˚C) by up to 80%.

Reduce Labor Hours

Instead of repeating the same production items every day, cook regular menu items to inventory and chill. Then refresh items as they are needed, reducing prep and cooking times.


"It makes things happen faster"

Proud Owner: QuickChiller™ blast chiller

Boston-based restaurant owner and chef Tony Maws uses the QuickChiller™ blast chiller to rapidly cool a variety of food. He especially finds it useful in chilling pastries and for ice cream. The blast chiller was originally purchased six years ago.

“For us, it is an expediter. It makes things happen faster,” Maws said.
