A traditional art that has its roots in antiquity, a symbol of Italian culinary tradition and beyond. We are focusing here on professional patisserie production, an extraordinary world that has continued to innovate over the decades, in a never-ending search for solutions to simplify the processing and storage of raw materials. This requirement is to be found in all areas of the catering industry, which needs extra special care and caution. Especially so, beginning with the choice of refrigerated equipment for professional patisseries, which is essential in food storage, preparation and blast chilling under conditions of full safety.
How do you choose refrigerated equipment for a professional patisserie?
A careful choice of refrigerated solutions is key to optimal food preparation for confectionery, patisserie and bakery kitchens.
Why choose refrigerated equipment specifically designed for the patisserie world? Because it differs from that which is designed more generally for the type of interior set-up catering. The confectionery industry uses EURONORM standard 600x400mm trays and grilles that rest on L-shaped rails, which are more suitable for supporting patisserie baking trays.
Moreover, an analysis of targeted technologies and functionality allows for an effective response to the storage and blast chilling requirements for confectionery and baked items. One of the most important aspects of refrigeration in a patisserie kitchen is ventilation, which must be regulated to prevent humidity-related issues from arising. This is a fundamental prerequisite that the equipment must include to provide optimum levels of performance.
As always, the best choice for the material is stainless steel, which not only provides unrivalled strength, but is also the ideal solution for hygienically safe refrigeration. Practicality, versatility and ease of use round out the essential features for the ideal refrigerated cabinet, which will allow cakes and patisserie items to be produced more easily and rapidly.
