Why Use Chilling Paddles in your Commercial Kitchen?
The Rapi-Kool Plus from San Jamar is an improvement over the original Rapi-Cool paddle, for a versatile utensil that quickly cools and mixes hot liquids. Chilling paddles like this one are commonly used in restaurant kitchens to cool large pots of soup, stew, stocks, sauces and other liquid leftovers. The innovative Fill-Rite design eliminates the hassle of looking for the fill line - simply fill the Rapi-Kool Plus paddle with water, screw on the top and freeze. A separate handle and cap guarantees room for ice expansion. And if you don't have time to let the paddle sit in the freezer, the wide mount is large enough that you can simply fill the paddle up with ice cubes.
Quickly & Safely Cool Hot Liquids like Soups & Stocks
The cooling fins which are part of the paddle design provide extra surface area for stirring, so your hot soups and stocks cool down fast. This handy commercial kitchen utensil rapidly chills food through the temperature danger zone (135°F to 70°F) in 2 hours, then to 41°F within 4 hours. Keeping leftover stocks and soups at the right temperature is crucial for your restaurant to meet health and safety regulations and maintain HACCP compliance. Using a cooling paddle like this one allows you to chill liquids from the "inside out," so products cool faster and more evenly. For the best results, you should let boiling liquids cool slightly before using a chilling paddle. We also recommend that when you take the Rapi-Kool paddle out of the freezer, you let it adjust to room temperature for a few minutes before inserting it into very hot liquids. Extreme temperature changes could weaken the paddle's exterior and shorten its lifespan.
