The Anti-Griddle™ is a traditional cooktop with an amazing twist: the device quickly freezes sauces and purees instead of heating them! Inspired by Chef Grant Achatz at Alinea Restaurant in Chicago, this unique innovation opens a new dimension in freezing sauces and purees, crèmes and foams.

Develop solid or semi-frozen creations with stable, crunchy surfaces and cool, creamy centers. The tantalizing dual-textures create a surprising and unique experience in restaurants. On buffets and at catering events, the Anti-Griddle always attracts diners when preparing a frozen appetizer or dessert right in front of their eyes. Let your culinary imagination run wild!

Within 5-10 minutes the Anti-Griddle™ surface will reach a temperature at -30 °F. Applying a thin film of olive oil before freezing the griddle surface will work as a release agent.

Some Anti-Griddle inspired creations:

  • Frozen salmon mousse
  • Rhubarb Jasmine Merengue
  • Caramel-Rosemary vanilla lollipops, liquid center and served on a rosemary stick
  • Vanilla-orange swirl with strawberry wings
  • Peanut butter brownie in a frozen crème anglaise coating
