    The Details:

    -DC:02 can be run in an existing prep sink or an external container. 

    -To use simply fill a plugged sink/container with frozen food, add cold water until water reaches the 'minimum fill line', turn DC:02 to ‘defrost’ or ‘chill'.

    -DC:02 can also be used to rapidly chill down hot foods by adding hot food, cold water, ice, and turning to “chill”.

    -Designed to be easily taken apart for a deep clean and sanitization.

    -At 15x16x9”, DC:02 has a small footprint that will work within any commercial kitchen framework.

    With a focus on a combination of specific water agitation and temperature control, CNSRV DC:02 is able to defrost or chill foods in less than half the time while using 98% less water than the traditional method. Plug a sink or container and fill with cold water (and ice if chilling) until water reaches the minimum fill line. Select 'Defrost' or 'Chill' on the knob- the water agitation begins. There is a sweet spot between enough agitation to rapidly defrost or chill and too much pressure which damages the quality of the food- CNSRV DC:02 lives in that sweet spot.

    CNSRV DC:02 is NSF listed for food contact and can be easily cleaned/sanitized following simple instructions here.
