Coldline LIFE Blast Chillers
If you love healthy food and using the freshest ingredients in your cooking, you’ll love our range of Coldline LIFE blast chillers from Italian brand Coldline. These innovative appliances cool food rapidly which not only maximises the nutrients, cell structures, texture and colour in your foods, but also reduces significantly any risk of harmful bacteria.
With the Coldline LIFE blast chiller you will be able to buy the freshest ingredients at your leisure and maintain their quality for a longer period of time, thanks to the best natural method of preservation: the cold. You can plan and cook meals ahead of time and preserve them beautifully for when you need them and cut down on waste and time.

Visit our store to view this remarkable brand – we welcome visitors from the South West – Cornwall, Devon, Dorset and Somerset as well as further afield.
DEEP FREEZING ISN’T THE SAME AS FREEZING
Deep-freezing and freezing are not synonymous. With the LIFE blast chillers the deep-freezing process rapidly reduces the air temperature to -40°C, microcrystalizing the water within the cells of the food. This means that the food will not lose any liquid during the thawing process. Traditional freezers, however, are unable to achieve such a low temperature resulting in longer freezing times. This causes the water to form into large crystals which destroys the fibers and leads to a loss of vitamins and nutrients, compromising the quality of the food.
PRESERVING THE QUALITY OF THE FOOD
All your efforts to select the best ingredients are thwarted by common cooling methods. Cooked food which stands at room temperature for a long period time compromises its quality. Standard refrigerators do not have the necessary power and ventilation to quickly absorb the product’s heat, but with LIFE blast chillers, you are able to preserve the original results, ensuring your meat, fish and vegetables maintain their taste without any loss of vitamins and minerals.
Home cooking is healthy and fun, but it’s often hard to find the time. But who said you need to cook everyday to eat healthy? If you’re not going to eat it immediately, chill food straight after cooking to preserve its freshness. With LIFE blast chillers you can now cook whenever you have time and plan your meals in advance. Unleash your creativity and make extraordinary, healthy dishes!
COOK LIKE A CHEF
With LIFE blast chillers things you couldn’t do in your kitchen are now possible: risk-free sushi, perfectly cooked bread, pizzas and focaccia flat bread, chocolate in unique shapes and creamy, natural yoghurt. You can also use your blast chiller for bottle cooling your wine. You no longer have to be a great chef to do all this: boost your talent in the kitchen and express your creativity with LIFE.
FRESH INGREDIENTS EVERYDAY
Nowadays we have very little time to spend searching for the best available food. We often put into our shopping trolleys pre-packed, frozen and preserved food of all types – meat, fish and vegetables. With the LIFE blast chiller you will be able to buy the freshest ingredients at your leisure and maintain their quality for a longer period of time, thanks to the best natural method of preservation: the cold.
IT IS NO LONGER NECESSARY TO BUY FROZEN FOOD
How often do you buy frozen food only to find that it has defrosted during the journey home? This not only affects the quality of the product, but also can be dangerous for your health, as the increasing temperature causes a growth in the amount of bacteria. With the LIFE blast chiller you can select fresh food and freeze it at home to a temperature of -40°C. This means that none of the quality is lost and there is no risk to your health. These results cannot be achieved with a normal home freezer.
The consumption of raw fish is becoming more popular, thanks to the healthy effects of omega 3 and consequently is increasingly served in both restaurants and in the home. There are, however, possible health risks resulting from contamination by the dangerous parasite Anisakis, that can only be eliminated by cooking or freezing at a very low temperature. With the LIFE blast chiller you can freeze the raw fish to -40°C and eat it at a later date, confident in the knowledge that it will be perfectly safe.
IMPROVE YOUR BABY’S HEALTH
Fruit and vegetables are important in a baby’s diet from the moment they start to eat solid food. Fresh fruit straight from the trees contains concentrated amounts of mineral salts and vitamins helping the baby grow into a healthy child. Often parents are too willing to use homogeneous industrially produced products – usually because they don’t have the time to go shopping every day. The LIFE blast chiller is here to help you! You can now select the best fresh seasonal foods, cook and package them into single portions, and produce a stock of high quality meals for your baby, which can be used over the coming weeks or months.
About 1.3 billion tons of food ends up in the trash every year. We often buy fresh ingredients that for various reasons are left in the fridge well past their use-buy date and we end up throwing them away. With LIFE blast chillers you can extend the life of your food and consequently reduce waste.
