How does a glass freezer work?

What are the benefits of using a glass freezer?
Glass freezers play a significant role in enhancing the flavour and experience of your drink.
Here are some benefits of using a glass freezer to chill glasses:
- Enhances flavour: When you pour cold drinks into chilled glasses, the liquid retains its temperature for longer, allowing you to taste the flavours better. This is particularly true for drinks with complex flavours, such as cocktails and wine.
- Improves texture: Chilling glasses also help in maintaining the texture of your drink. For example, cold beer stays fizzy for longer when poured into a chilled glass, giving you a crisp and refreshing taste.
- Minimises dilution: Ice cubes can dilute your drink if not used correctly. By chilling your glasses beforehand, you can minimise the amount of ice needed to keep your drink cold, preventing it from becoming watered down.
- Faster service: A glass freezer allows you to quickly chill glasses on demand, making it ideal for hosting parties or events where you need to serve multiple drinks at once.
- Presentation: Chilled glasses not only improve the taste of your drink but also add to its presentation. It adds a sophisticated and professional appearance, perfect for impressing guests or customers.
How to maintain a glass freezer
Glass freezers don’t get dirty quickly as they are only used to freeze clean, empty glasses. If needed, wipe down the aluminium casing and stainless steel head with a soft cloth.
Regularly check the condition of the gas hose. Regularly check the connected liquid CO₂ cylinder so you can replace it with a new one when it’s almost empty. If you’re not using the appliance for an extended period, close the supply to the cylinder and disconnect the device.
