2 Cold Rooms Refurbishment – Wedding Venue

Evaporator - Cold room

Last week, Cook:Chill assisted by our good friends at 2 Degree C Ltd, completed the refurbishment/upgrade of a walk in cold room and freezer room at a truly stunning wedding venue in Maidenhead.

The original cold room installation had the monoblock refrigeration system contained within their commercial kitchen. During busy periods the extra heat generated by these 2 systems was proving unbearable for the catering team. A site survey revealed that, very easily we could replace a panel in each room and upgrade the refrigeration to a split system.

With the UK government intimating that hospitality venues could open from mid-May, we had to program the installation to allow for enough time for the works to be completed and the rooms restocked.

With the condensers now mounted externally, heat generation within the kitchen will be greatly reduced. Not only will this give the client a much more comfortable working environment, it will also prove to be much more efficient.

Cook:Chill can supply and install a complete range of commercial refrigeration:

  • Upright Fridges        
  • Upright Freezers    
  • Double Door Fridges
  • Double Door Freezers             
  • Slimline Fridges    
  • Slimline Freezers                
  • Counter Top Fridges               
  • Counter Top Freezers
  • Pizza Prep Stations   
  • Salad Prep Stations
  • Serve Over Counters               
  • Ice machines                         
  • Multi decks           
  • Beer Fridges

Hobart PROFI TLWW – 2 Levels, 1 Dishwasher

Cook:Chill Hobart Two Level Dishwasher

Have you ever wanted to increase the output of your hood lift dishwasher, without compromising space? Well now you can…

Hobart released this innovative warewashing machine in 2019, offering increased output via two separate wash chambers in a single machine without an increase in water or detergent usage. They have achieved this through the combination of a traditional hood lift with a front loading machine below, giving a nominal capacity of 120 rack per hour.

Hobart Two Level Dishwasher

The chambers can also be used independently, allowing the user to either maximise efficiency during quieter operational periods or, providing the flexibility to clean different wash ware products simultaneously.

The Cook:Chill Team are more than happy to discuss your project, offering help and advice where necessary. Call now on +44 1179 646 497 or follow the link below.

Central Production Kitchens can Benefit from Modular Blast Chillers

Cook:Chill Blast Chill Refrigeration

Central Production Kitchens (CPK) have, in recent times, become increasingly popular with multi-site catering operations in both the public and private sectors. From those small restaurant or hotel chains looking for consistency in their food offering, to councils who are maximising budgets by producing and locally distributing school meals, the CPK has become the foundation to surviving in an uncertain economic climate.

The Cook Chill Process

Cook:Chill Process

When run properly, the CPK has many advantages:

  • Reduced wastage
  • Increased buying power
  • Reduced staffing costs
  • Increased consistency
  • Reduced production costs
  • Increased compliance

For both the public and private sectors, these benefits provide the arguments in which to implement such as strategy. The downside is quite obviously the start-up cost with new premises and equipment potentially becoming a six figure sum.  However, there are saving to be made in this area although operational changes may have to be made to accomplish this.

The rapid evolution in catering and refrigeration technologies over the last number of years have meant that more can be achieved with less.  One area in which, until now, the technologies have been slower to react is in blast refrigeration. Many well-known brands produce reach in and roll in units capable of blast chilling or freezing, the downside is that they are of fixed sizes.  These limitations mean that in the CPK operation, multiple units have to be purchased or a staggered production time has to be implemented.   

Cook:Chill offer a made-to-measure design service based around a modular configuration. This design element allows us to match the blast chilling or blast freezing requirements to the product and operational capabilities therefore maximising throughput. Gone are the days of one trolley or tray at a time. All of our refrigeration equipment delivers a performance that exceeds both food safety legislation and HACCP compliance.

As part of the Cook:Chill service, we will attend site offering unbiased advice to assist in the specification of the correct solution for your business and budget.  Give one of the Team a call on +441179 646 497 or follow the link below.
