    This works great for cooling down liquids fast. I bought it to bring down the temps of stocks and broths. It works well and saves me time.

    Used it to cool big pots of soup, after the 4th use, the side cracked and now I can't use it. Wasn't dropped or anything, just seemed to crack from the stark temperature change.

    Perfect item to help cool items and help them through the temperature danger zone. Our local health board suggested this item as it is commonly used. It is durable and does the job.

    from The Grumpy Monk Posted on

    Paddle helps with cooling down hot stock much quicker in comparison to an ice bath alone. This isn't something completely necessary, but if you are concerned about getting the temp cooled quickly enough to keep your stock out of a dangerous temperature, this is a good tool to have in the kitchen to help with cooling just about anything.

    These work great to quickly cool large batches of beans to proper temps. The problem is they crack when freezing. I think the ones we have had break were over filled.

    from Mesa Grande Taqueria Posted on

    Easy to clean and it works just as intended to. Comes with an extra cap so if you accidentally over fill and crack a cap, you're not left with a giant expensive water bottle.

    from HomeGrown Eats Posted on

    Used the 64 oz before, but found this size much better, and it fits perfectly the larger stock pots. It also is long and thin, so it can reach almost the entire height of a pot.

    from Moldova Restaurant Posted on

    San Jamar Cooling Paddle is easy to use...just fill with water screw on the top and freeze. Helps chill food fast from the inside out. The exterior is smooth which makes it easy to remove food which reduces waste and makes it easier to clean.

    I absolutely do not know how kitchens survived before these. This cooling paddle is placed in the center of where the heat is and cools the sauce or soup down, which gets it out of the danger zone quickly.

    If you have the freezer space to store these cooling paddles, they are very helpful for cooling large batches of soupy food quickly, dropping the tem about 20 degrees in ten minutes.

    The rapid cooling paddle is a must when cooling down large quanities of stews or soups to a safe temperture. The paddle is well made and works well.

    I used this paddle to cool down the wort when I'm brewing my own beer. I think it worked great. The only problem is that it's only rated up to 195 degrees, which is below boiling. So I had to lower the wort to 195 before using the paddle. Still, it cooled the wort down significantly faster than an ice bath.
