Refrigeration System: Fridge, Refrigerator, Freezer, Chiller

We often hear a lot of these different terms, but never actually try to understand the difference between one another. Basically they all work on the same principle by drawing and transferring heat from the objects or source inside to the surrounding or sink so that the temperature of the inside is kept cool or remains below the ambient room temperature. Fridge, refrigerator, freezer and chiller are all common household appliances with a main function to perform almost similar tasks i.e. cooling and maintaining low temperature (refrigerating), but with varying features, capacities and different working operations. They are also available in the commercial range to meet the needs of businesses in the Food and Beverage industry, such as bar, restaurant, kitchen, lounge, pub, hotel, kiosk, catering, etc. Now let’s deep dive at some of the differences between the different suite of refrigeration system:Refrigeration System, Fridge, Refrigerator, Chiller, Freezer

Refrigerator (fridge)

Refrigerator and fridge refer to the same thing. Fridge is simply the colloquial term for refrigerator. Refrigerator is highly used as home, industrial and commercial appliance for preserving food and beverages by lowering the internal temperature. A fridge normally maintains a temperature of a few degrees above the freezing point of water e.g. 3 to 5 °C (37 to 41 °F), which is the optimal temperature range for perishable food storage. A refrigerator may come with a freezer as two separate compartments, and together as a combo they are still called a Refrigerator, however the colder compartment is known as a freezer.

Freezer

Upright Freezer 4 Door, Refrigerator 4 DoorFreezer units are typically used in households and in commerce and industry, they transfer heat from objects kept within an enclosed area by means of evaporation. It works on the same principle of refrigeration and an evaporating or cooling gas is used to evaporate heat from the objects. Freezers can drop temperature from -23 to -18 °C (-9 to -0 °F), although some freezer-only units such as those used commercially can achieve −34 °C (−29 °F) or even lower.

Chiller

Chillers are used to lower temperature of liquids within the range 2 to 5 °C (35 to 41 °F) by extracting heat from the liquids via vapor compression technique. To drop temperature of the liquids, compressor is used in chiller. Chillers are widely used in air-conditioning system as well as in many industrial applications like food and beverage processing, food catering, chemical processing, food storage and preservation, paper and cement processing and many more.

Induction Technology is Making a Buzz

We heard a lot of buzz going on about the next best thing in the Food & Beverage industry: Cooking with induction cook top equipments. Induction cooking is not a radical brand new technology – it has long been widely used around the world, both by professionals and homeowners. But in the last few years this technology has improved so much and the costs have simultaneously dropped so much as well. This leads to the proliferation of the use of induction technology, not only for commercial cooking but also in home industry.

Chef Cooking with Induction Technology

Unlike traditional cooking methods that involve either chemical like gas, wood, coal or electric, to generate and transfer the heat to the cooking vessels, induction cooking does not involve generating heat. Induction technology makes the cooking vessel itself the original generator of the cooking heat.

How does an induction cooker do that? Put simply, an induction-cooker element (what on a gas stove would be called a “burner”) is a powerful, high-frequency electromagnet, with the electromagnetism generated by sophisticated electronics in the “element” under the unit’s ceramic surface.

Induction Cooking Process Flow Diagram

When a good-sized piece of magnetic material, such as, a cast-iron skillet is placed in the magnetic field that the element is generating, the field transfers (“induces”) energy into that metal. That transferred energy causes the metal – the cooking vessel – to become hot. By controlling the strength of the electromagnetic field, we can control the amount of heat being generated in the cooking vessel and we can change that amount instantaneously.

Baking the Perfect Belgian Waffles

You may have been looking for a great Belgian Waffle recipe for a long time. Almost all of the ones we tried were good but they were never as good as we knew they could be. A perfect waffle is crispy on the outside and light tender on the inside, we do not want them to become cakey or heavy.

Challenged enough to create a perfect Belgian Waffle? Below is a simple recipe, perfect for occasional treats with our family and friends. Waffles are awesome served with warm maple syrup or our favourite flavours of syrup, topped with sliced fresh berries, bananas and some yummy vanilla ice cream.

Makes 7 Belgian Waffles

Ingredients

  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup cake flour
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups water
  • 4 large eggs, separated
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup unsalted butter melted

Preparation

  • Combine flour, leaveners, salt and sugar and whisk to mix. Add water, egg yolks and vanilla and whisk until smooth. Whisk in melted butter.
  • Beat egg whites in another bowl to stiff peaks, then fold into batter, half at a time.
  • At first, it will seem very lumpy, but keep folding and it will smooth out.
  • Warm up your Ellane Belgian Waffle Baker and pour the waffle batter into it. Bake for approximately 5 minutes until golden brown.
  • Serve hot with fresh sliced strawberries, blueberries, bananas, warm syrup and vanilla ice cream.

Different Methods of Cooking

Idul Fitri Festival celebration 2010 only seems like yesterday – it was precious time of the year as we encompassed the opportunity to express clemency and compassion with our families, partners, friends and colleagues. This new month, all of us should be fully recharged, energised and fresh as we are moving towards the end of year 2010.

Family Cooking is Fun

Nothing bonds loved ones together as much as a shared meal. And cooking those meals together holds the potential to strengthen those. “Cooking” is the application of heat to food. Cooking is normally done either in an oven or on a cooktop of some sort: gas or electric, though occasionally a grill or griddle is used.

The two basic methods in modern times have been the chemical and the electrical: one either burns some combustible substance such as wood, coal, or gas, or one runs an electrical current through a resistance element (that, for instance, is how toasters work), whether in a “coil” or, more recently, inside a halogen-filled bulb.

Cooking Method With Gas and Chinese Wok, Gas Cooking, Traditional Cooking Technique

Microwaving, an oven-only technology, is a third method, wherein the heat is generated directly in the food itself. It cooks food by dielectric heating by using microwave radiation to heat water and polarised molecules within the food. The excitation is fairly uniform, leading to food being more evenly heated throughout than generally occurs in other cooking techniques.

Egg On Induction Cooktop, Induction Cooking, Induction Cooktop

Least but not last method, which increasingly becomes more and more popular and valued these days is induction cooking. Induction is a completely different method from all other cooking technologies – it does not involve generating heat which is then transferred to the cooking vessel / pot, instead it makes the cooking vessel / pot itself the original generator of the cooking heat.

Is Induction the right cooking technology for you to start adopting? Please feel free to consult your cooking equipment requirements with us, simply because we are a leading induction technology adopter. Our Induction Warmers and Chafers are simply the best of the best breed of what exists in the market to date.

iEasy Mop Effective Cleaning Solution



When it comes to floor cleaning – whether hard, concrete floor or timber, wooden floor, there are basically two ways – wet or dry.

i Easy Mop Easy Effective Cleaning Solution and Revolution, Clean Quicker, Dry Faster, 99% Bacteria FreeUsing a dry regular broom or mop simply launches dust particles into the air. Cleaning with a vacuum cleaner is feasible but the head of the cleaner can scratch the floor and it cannot remove scuff marks or spills.

Cleaning the floor using water will certainly suppress the dust particles, but care has to be taken to ensure that any excess water is removed, otherwise it may stumble you easily or even the water may soak in and destroy the floor over time. Cleaning wet floor can be done using a mop or damp cloth on all fours. If a mop is used it will almost certainly leave too much water on the surface and cleaning on all fours is best avoided at all costs!

Now introducing another, new way. Our iEasy Mop is a cleaning revolution that uses just enough water to control dust but nowhere near enough to leave puddles. In fact you can easily control the amount of wetness in the mop head, spinning out as much water as you wish. The mop with only little remaining water will barely dampen a piece of kitchen paper, let-alone your floor.

So iEasy Mop is damp enough to clean any hard floor dry-to-walk-on, and dry enough to leave no excess water to trip you over. In addition the micro-fibre mop head is antibacterial by removing 99.9% of germs, and it simply uses plain tap water with no detergent or harsh chemical necessary. In use, iEasy Mop is very light and manoeuvrable and can be used by all of us.

Let’s together use iEasy Mop to clean our floors – it is the easiest, simplest and most importantly most hygienic cleaning solution – and don’t forget say goodbye to traditional cleaning on all fours and those unwanted bacteria and germs.
