Selecting the cycle
3) Choose the desired cycle:
- blast chilling
- shock freezing
- beverage chilling.
Both the blast chilling and shock freezing cycles can be carried
out in "timer-controlled" or "core-probe" controlled modes.
Blast chilling/shock freezing in "timer-controlled
After cycle B1 (blast chilling) or C1 (shock freezing) in "timer-
controlled" mode is selected symbol E lights up. The pre-set
duration of the blast chilling cycle (1:30 - hours:minutes) or of
the shock freezing cycle (4:00 - hours:minutes) appears on
If the pre-set duration is not suitable for the food type to be
blast chilled or shock frozen, it can be adjusted by pressing
buttons B1 or C1 of the "timer-controlled" cycle repeatedly,
until the desired cycle time appears on display H.
Caution! The duration of the cycle is affected by various factors,
incl. the type of food, its thickness or size, the initial temperature
and the type of container being used.
The blast chilling or shock freezing cycle ends at the end of the
Blast chilling/shock freezing in "core-probe"
Insert the core probe into the food to be blast chilled or shock
frozen (Chapt. 1.2.2).
After cycle B2 (blast chilling) or C2 (shock freezing) is
selected, symbol G lights up. The temperature measured by
the core probe appears on display F. When the probe detects
that the temperature at the core, or centre, of the food has
reached +3°C (for the blast chilling cycle) or -18°C (for the
shock freezing cycle) it stops the cycle automatically.
Beverage fast chilling
This cycle is only available in the "timer-controlled" mode and
lasts 5, 10 or 15 minutes. The user can select the desired
duration by pressing button D repeatedly. The selected cycle
duration is displayed in display H.
