With plenty of summer heat still hanging around, most people are looking for cold deserts and drinks to battle the high temperatures.
Dry ice can be used as a cooktop or even to help keep punch extra cold, but there are a few precautions to know before using it with food and cooking. Let’s review some precautions when using dry ice.
Food Quality Dry Ice
Your search for dry ice should start with Food Grade Dry Ice. This type of dry ice can be used in soda fountains, transporting food and even used in making ground beef. The dry ice is crushed and placed into the ground meat to help keep it cold. Unlike regular ice, dry ice won’t add water to the ground meat.
Dry Ice Cooktop
Dry ice cooktops can be used to create crunchy, solid and other types of creations that deviate from regular fare. While a dry ice cooktop doesn’t exactly cook anything, it will be able to freeze solids, liquids, sauces, syrups and creams. This helps create really unique deserts and treats, and it will leave your guests thoroughly impressed.
Cooking with Dry Ice
Before you set up a cook station with your dry ice, make sure that the area is well ventilated. Dry ice can cause suffocation because of carbon dioxide omission, so make sure that you aren’t using a large amount in very closed off areas. After you have the right area to cook in, place a towel down on a cutting board. Then, you can place the dry ice on the towel and a cookie sheet on top of the dry ice. Spray the cookie sheet with non-stick spray, and then you can make anything that you can imagine! Cooking with dry ice allows you to show off your creativity.
