Snyder Diamond Imports First Residential Blast Chiller from Italy

With the Italian Freddy Hot/Cold Blast Chiller kitchen appliance newly available in the U.S. residential market, home chefs have the ability to shock freeze, cook, thaw, proof, blast chill and heat their food in the comfort of their own kitchen. Freddy, the first domestic appliance that combines hot and cold functions, and the first blast chiller designed for residential use, is now available in Southern California at Snyder Diamond’s Santa Monica showroom.

With its sleek Italian design, Freddy, by Irinox, is the ultimate smart kitchen device that uses cutting-edge proven technology to freeze, chill and heat with outstanding results. It has been favored by hotels and restaurants in Italy for years, and has only been available in North America since October 2014. Now, for the retail price of $5,175, home chefs can enjoy the advanced benefits of this sophisticated commercial appliance, which is about the size of a microwave.  “When it comes to blast chillers, slow cookers and vacuum sealers, Irinox is the world-leader,” says Russ Diamond, president of Snyder Diamond. “We are excited that they have perfected their forward-thinking technology for North American residences, and that we are now offering it here at Snyder Diamond.”
