This is a great food safety tool as it reduces the amount of time that foods are in the danger zone during their transition from hot temperatures to refrigerated storage temperatures.
Cool off liquids by placing a soup chiller in the center of the hot pot to chill liquids from the inside out and accelerate the cooling process. You can also use the paddle as a stirrer to reach liquids in all areas of the pot. Simply fill the soup chiller with water and place it in your freezer to create a frozen paddle, or fill the container with chopped ice to reduce chilling time.
