Having extra space for frozen food like the one offered by the model T18ID905RP by Thermador is a priority that the pandemic taught us. After all, having stock in case of an emergency is important.
But this current trend in which many of us prefer the “natural” before the prepackaged, provokes in us a little resistance when it comes to the frozen products of the supermarket. So, what can you do if you understand that it’s a good idea to be prepared for everything? Well, learn how to freeze properly and take advantage of the benefits that appliances such as the column freezer T18ID905RP offer us.
The ABC of freezing
The first thing to take into account is that not everything can be frozen. While meats, seafood, fruits, and some vegetables can be frozen, others should be eaten fresh.
Also, you must understand that freezing isn’t just putting the food in the freezer. It’s a bit more complex, especially if you want to do it right.
In this sense, to start the process you should have glass Tupperware containers and ziplock bags of all sizes handy. Then, comes the tedious part: the process of washing, drying, cutting, blanching, and storing or packaging.
There’s a reason behind all these steps. The first and most basic one is to optimize space. Why? Because although the column freezer T18ID905RP by Thermador offers 7.8 cubic feet of storage and special preservation drawers, placing everything in an orderly and easy-to-identify manner will help you a lot when it comes to cooking.
Next are the reasons related to hygiene and proper preservation of these foods. It is important to wash well and chop before blanching.
Of all these processes, you may be interested in blanching. This step is vital as it is the step before freezing. Blanching will help lock in nutrients and prevent possible contamination.
Blanching consists of briefly cooking the food (whether vegetable or animal), from 30 seconds to 3 minutes, in hot water at a temperature between 85°C and 98°C. After this, the food should be quickly cooled in cold water. And it’s important to change the water every time you are doing this process.
After that, dry the food well with paper towels, store it in Tupperware containers or ziplock bags, and distribute it in the spaces provided by this Thermador freezer.
Pure technology in your kitchen
In addition to its very sophisticated design that allows it to fit perfectly into any kitchen, the column freezer T18ID905RP by Thermador is a high-tech appliance that manufactures ice and dispenses water.
The water filter included in this freezer eliminates 99.9% of the sediments, which guarantees that you will drink quality water. But its benefits don’t end there, as the filter is the perfect match for the Diamond Ice system whose rotating tray technology provides ice with a unique shape that is designed to melt slowly.
As if that wasn’t enough, the ice and water dispenser of this column freezer by Thermador has intuitive touch controls and lighting that will make getting water and ice an experience. As you can see, this is top-of-the-line equipment.
It only remains to tell you that its interior is made of high-quality stainless steel, it has an open door assist that allows you to push or pull the door to open it. Additionally, it comes with patented Cool Air Flow technology that evenly distributes cold air throughout the appliance, providing excellent freezing to the food stored in it.
