The Alto-Shaam ® Quickchiller ™ is a processing refrigeration
system designed to rapidly and uniformly decrease the
temperature of hot foods to either a chilled or frozen state.
This process provides enhanced safety, longer storage life and
better production efficiency.
Rapid reduction in the temperature of hot foods inhibits the
growth of bacteria and provides a safe, five-day chilled food
refrigerated storage period from the time of preparation to the
time of service. Enhanced storage time offers the food service
operation considerable production efficiency. As an example, a
daily menu item can be reduced from daily preparation to a
preparation schedule consisting of two days per week.
The Alto-Shaam Quickchiller can be effectively utilized in
several types of food service programs:
1. TRADITIONAL COOK-SERVE KITCHENS —
Quick chilling can be used to help streamline production in operations where foods are prepared for
immediate service. Preparation of labor intensive entrées can be scheduled for production several
days before service. Chilling foods provides the ability to rethermalize these items at a later date
while maintaining both safety and product quality.
2. MODIFIED COOK-CHILL OPERATIONS—
where a significant portion of food is cooked for immediate service and a smaller portion of more labor
intensive, hot food items are prepared in advance, chilled and reheated when required for service.
3. FULL COOK-CHILL OPERATIONS —
where all hot food production is prepared in advance of service requirements and held in refrigerated
prepared food inventories. Hot food preparation takes place over a five-day production schedule.
The Quickchiller cooling or freezing process is
accomplished with the utilization of large
compressors and fans that are electronically
controlled through the parameters entered by the
operator on the control panel located at the front
of the cabinet. The Quickchiller provides the
operator with the ability to chill food products to
a set cavity temperature by time or by internal
product temperature using one or more food
probes. When the specified chill time has elapsed
or the probe temperature(s) has been reached the
Quickchiller will convert to a holding mode at a
temperature specified for either refrigeration or
frozen product maintenance. The Quickchiller
control maintains a record of the length operating
time used for each current cycle. After the chill
cycle has ended and the unit is maintaining a
holding temperature mode, the chiller control will
initiate an automatic defrost cycle when required.

O P E R AT I O N
CHILL PROCESSING CYCLES
The Alto-Shaam Quickchiller uses high velocity
cold air circulation to remove heat from prepared
foods for the purpose of rapidly reducing
temperatures through the danger zone and
providing maximum storage life. Cold air is evenly
directed across each pan from the control side of
every Quickchiller model to assure rapid cooling.
The high velocity cold air produced by the
Quickchiller removes insulating layers of warm
moist air that surrounds hot products. The rapid
removal of these insulating layers of heat reduces
food temperatures significantly faster than any
other method of temperature reduction and
provides enhanced food safety.
Because the basic performance of the
Quickchiller relies on high velocity air movement
around each container of food, it is important to
load the food by placing pans directly into the pan
slides. Always use the pan slides to support the
edges of 12" x 20" steam table pans (GN 1/1). Use
a wire shelf for pan support when using 18" x 26"
sheet pans; 12" x 10" steam table pans (GN 1/2);
loaf pans; entree plates; and other small containers.
CAUTION
TO MAINTAIN SANITATION
CONTROL, ALL FOODS FOR
QUICK-CHILL OR QUICK-FREEZE
PROCESSING MUST BE AT A
TEMPERATURE ABOVE 140°F (60°C)
AND MUST BE TIGHTLY COVERED.
QUICKCHILLER OPERATION MODES
➤ PROCESSING WITH THE USE OF PROBES
Probe usage provides chill or frozen food
processing activation and termination through
use of a food probe or probes inserted into the
center of the food. The cycle is automatically
terminated when the center of the food reaches
the probe sensing temperature set by the
operator. In units with multiple probes, all
probes much reach the sensing temperature set
by the operator to trigger automatic termination
of the cycle.
➤ PROCESSING BY TIME
The time mode provides processing activation
and termination based on a timed cycle selected
by the operator. Upon expiration of the timed
cycle, the cabinet automatically reverts to the
designated holding cycle temperature.
➤ HOLDING
Following processing completion, a holding
cycle provides a temperature of 38°F (3°C) for
refrigerated storage or a frozen food storage
temperature of -1°F to 10°F (-18°C to -12°C) to
safely hold foods after processing. The holding
cycle will also maintain a holding compartment
temperature between processing cycles.
INITIAL QUICKCHILLER OPERATION
PRECHILLING THE CABINET
The Quickchiller should be prechilled prior to
placing hot foods into the cabinet. In models
equipped with a roll-in cart (trolley), always
maintain an empty food cart inside the chiller
when prechilling to eliminates air loss through the
bottom of the chiller cabinet door. An optional
Prechill Sealing Strip (Item #5008856) may also be
used for this purpose.

➤ Clean the Quickchiller and probes prior to use and
make certain all processing modes are operating
properly before chilling or freezing foods.
➤ To maintain proper operation of the
Quickchiller, always allow the unit to defrost
whenever the “DEFROST OVERDUE”
warning appears in the display.
➤ For optimum performance, allow the
Quickchiller to prechill for a minimum of
30 minutes before loading pans of food.
➤ Never overload the Quickchiller.
➤ It is important to be familiar with and adhere
to all local food codes.
CAUTION
ADEQUATE SPACING MUST BE
ALLOWED BETWEEN PANS FOR
PROPER AIR CIRCULATION FOR
BOTH PROCESSING AND
SUBSEQUENT HOLDING.
➤ Cook foods properly in preparation for blast
chilling or freezing.
➤ Foods should be portioned into shallow pans to
a depth not to exceed 2-inches (51mm).
➤ Pans must be covered prior to the chilling or
freezing process.
➤ Always follow the recommended shelf life for
chilled food products. Hold chilled foods
under refrigeration for a maximum of 5 days
including the day of production and the day
of consumption.
➤ According to U.S. food code regulations, all
chilled products must be reheated to an
internal temperature of 165°F (74°C) prior
to serving.
NOTE:
THE PROCEDURE TO SET THE CORRECT DATE AND TIME IS ADDRESSED IN THE PROGRAM OPTIONS SECTION OF THIS MANUAL.
ALLOW A 30 MINUTE MINIMUM PRECHILL TIME.
NOTE:
During the initial cooling of the Quickchiller, an evaporator fan delay system will prevent the
chilling fans from engaging until the evaporator coil temperature is below 30°F (-1°C).

FOOD PROBE USE
Unpacking Food Probes
1. Cut and remove the
plastic ties keeping the
probe cables coiled
during shipment.
When removing the ties,
exercise caution to avoid
accidentally cutting the black plastic
covers on the probe cable wires.
2. Uncoil the probe cables and insert the metal
portion of each probe into the bracket mounted
on the inside of the cabinet. Proper probe
placement is in the following sequence:
Place the top probe (Product Probe 1) in the top
bracket. On equipped models, place the center
probe (Product Probe 2) in the middle bracket,
and place the lower probe (Product Probe 3) in
the bottom bracket position.
3. Before using the probes, wipe each probe and
probe tip with a disposable alcohol pad to clean
and sanitize.
Probe Cleaning Procedures
1. Remove all food residues from probes between
loads and at the end of each production shift.
Wipe the entire probe, cable assembly, and
probe holding bracket with warm detergent
solution and a clean cloth.
2. Remove detergent by wiping each probe, probe
cable, and holding bracket with clean rinse
water and a cloth.
3. Wipe probes and probe brackets with disposable
alcohol pad or sanitizing solution recommended
for food contact surfaces
TIME & TEMPERATURE GUIDELINES
To assure quality and safety in chilled processed
food handling, it is important to observe the
following guidelines.
1. All foods should be covered prior to chill or
freeze processing.
2. The temperature of foods should be rapidly
reduced from 140°F to 40°F (60°C to 4°C)
within a period of 4 hours.
3. Foods can be safely removed from the chiller
cabinet at a product temperature of 40°F (4°C)
or lower.
4. Chilled foods should be stored under
refrigeration designed to hold products at
34° to 38°F (1° to 3°C) for a maximum of 5 days
or less. A 5-day shelf life includes the day of
production and the day of consumption.
5. All potentially hazardous cooked foods that
have been chilled followed by reheating and hot
food holding must be reheated to a minimum
core temperature of 165°F (74°C) for 15 seconds
prior to serving. Refer to local food codes for
possible exceptions.
6. Always reference and adhere to local food
codes and HACCP guidelines with regard to
time and temperature for chilling or frozen
food processing.
ALLOW A MINIMUM OF
30 MINUTES OF PRECHILL
TIME BEFORE PROCESSING.
4. Replace the probe into the proper probe bracket.
Allow the probe and cable to air dry.
5. Wipe the each probe with a disposable alcohol
pad prior to inserting the probe into a new
food product.

FOOD HANDLING GUIDELINES
PRODUCT COVERING
To maintain sanitation control when loading
the Quickchiller, foods should be above 140°F
(60°C) and should be tightly covered. A tight
cover is an important part of proper chilling
methods and must be used to prevent the
possibility of accidental contamination by
airborne bacteria.
Stainless steel pan covers may be used.
Stainless steel covered pans must include a label
indicating pan contents and use-by date. A cover
of clear plastic wrap is also acceptable.
When using plastic wrap as a food covering,
make certain the wrap comes in direct contact
with the surface of the product and extends
around and down each side of the pan. This is an
important step to ensure proper chilling times.
Spacing left between the plastic wrap and the
surface of the food creates an insulating air gap
resulting in more product heat retention and a
slower chilling rate.
Meat roasts and other larger, dense products
should be no larger than a weight of 8 to 10
pounds (4 to 5 kg) per item. Because of the
density of these products, chilling could take up
to 4 hours. Due to longer chilling time required, it
is also suggested these items be chilled at the end
of the day with the chiller set in the automatic
chill/hold mode. This method provides the
operator with fully chilled product holding at a
refrigerated temperature on the following day.
Prior to chilling, roasts must be wrapped in
clear plastic and placed in the chiller. Do not
slice roasted m eats u ntil the d ay of service.
Portioned meat products such as pork chops or
meat patties should be chilled directly on the
sheet pans on which they were cooked. Cover the
sheet pans with clear plastic wrap for chilling.
After chilling, this type of product can be placed
in steam table pans for refrigerated storage.
P O R T I O N I N G & PA C K A G I N G
1. During portioning and packaging operations,
all foods should be maintained at or above
140°F (60°C), or below 40°F (4°C).
2. If cooked foods exceed the processing capacity
of the Quickchiller, place hot product in an
appropriate back-up hot holding device such
as an Alto-Shaam ® Halo Heat Combimate
holding cabinet which will accommodate a
roll-in cart (trolley). Hold hot foods at a
temperature above 140°F (60°C).
If a hot food holding cabinet is not available,
place hot foods in short-term refrigerated
storage until these products can be loaded into
the Quickchiller for the next available
processing cycle. Production of cooked foods
should not exceed the processing capabilities
of the chiller, therefore, do not adopt shortterm refrigeration as a routine practice but use
only in an emergency situation.
3. Fill containers to a 12 pound (5kg) limit or
maximum depth of 2" (51mm) of product.
Do not use plastic or Lexan ® containers.
4. For faster cooling, place lids and over-wrap
materials directly on the surface of foods. As
previously indicated, air trapped between the
lid and food surface acts as an insulator and
will increase chill time.
5. For faster chilling times, place low profile
foods such as chicken quarters, fish fillets,
or ribs in low depth containers such as
1-1/2" (38mm) deep sheet pans.
6. Large cuts of meat and poultry that weigh a
maximum of 8 to 10 pounds (4 to 5 kg)
maximum should be individually wrapped
with tight fitting film and placed on sheet pans
in the chill cabinet.

CLEANING AND PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE
PROTECTING STAINLESS STEEL SURFACES
It is important to guard against
corrosion in the care of
stainless steel surfaces.
Harsh, corrosive, or
inappropriate chemicals can
completely destroy the
protective surface layer of stainless steel.
Abrasive pads, steel wool, or metal implements
will abrade surfaces causing damage to this
protective coating and will eventually result in
areas of corrosion. Even water, particularly hard
water that contains high to moderate
concentrations of chloride, will cause oxidation
and pitting that result in rust and corrosion. In
addition, many acidic foods spilled and left to
remain on metal surfaces are contributing factors
that will corrode surfaces.
Proper cleaning agents, materials, and
methods are vital to maintaining the appearance
and life of this appliance. Spilled foods should be
removed and the area wiped as soon as possible
but at the very least, a minimum of once a day.
Always thoroughly rinse surfaces after using a
cleaning agent and wipe standing water as quickly
as possible after rinsing.
CLEANING AGENTS
Use non-abrasive cleaning products designed for
use on stainless steel surfaces. Cleaning agents
must be chloride-free compounds and must not
contain quaternary salts. Never use hydrochloric
acid (muriatic acid) on stainless steel surfaces.
Always use the proper cleaning agent at the
manufacturer's recommended strength.
Contact your local cleaning supplier for
product recommendations.
CLEANING MATERIALS
The cleaning function can usually be accomplished
with the proper cleaning agent and a soft, clean
cloth. When more aggressive methods must be
employed, use a non-abrasive scouring pad on
difficult areas and make certain to scrub with the
visible grain of surface metal to avoid surface
scratches. Never use wire brushes, metal scouring
pads, or scrapers to remove food residue.
