PolyScience temperature control expertise goes well beyond Sous Vide and other methods of adding heat. We’re also experts at taking heat away quickly.
The resulting flash freezing enables you to quickly turn sauces, purees, crèmes, vinaigrettes and other foods into very different solid or semi-frozen creations. Cool, creamy centers and crunchy surfaces can be created in just seconds with the PolyScience Anti-Griddle featuring a -30°F / -34.4°C plate that allows rapid unidirectional freezing.
The Anti-Griddle flash freezing technique, originally inspired by Chef Grant Achatz, allows you to easily prepare appealing dual-texture creations and explore an entirely new culinary realm. The possibilities are truly endless.

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.
“The possibilities are endless. We re-invented smores with a frozen marshmallow, liquid center chocolate, covered with Graham Crackers. This machine makes us rethink what we can actually do. Not only in the restaurant but actually at home with kids and family.”
