Temperatures on Jolt


Meticulous, Fast, Effective

Cooling logs and Hot Holding logs are essential documents used in commercial kitchens and food service establishments to accurately track the cooling process of cooked food items. These logs are not only a part of food safety protocols but are often mandated by health departments to ensure that food is handled properly and stored to prevent foodborne illnesses. Jolt Time and Temperature processes provide detailed records for every process, prompt employees to measure the temperature, instruct individuals to take corrective actions if a temperature threshold is not met, prepare everyone for their next audit, and ensure consistency across all store locations.


    Pass audits, save money, and protect customers.

    Proactive Temperature Monitoring

    Monitor temperature changes proactively, track equipment health, eliminate human error, and reduce labor costs with Jolt’s advanced temperature monitoring system. Protect your customers, maintain food safety standards, and experience seamless audits with accurate, reliable technology.


    Why Track Temperatures?

    Using freezer and refrigeration temperature sensors to monitor temperatures is essential for many reasons. It’s not only required by food safety regulations to protect customers, but it can also help you run your business more efficiently. Remote fridge & freezer temperature monitoring means you won’t have to worry about losing products due to equipment failure. You’ll be alerted instantly if temperatures fall outside the acceptable range, which saves you money and keeps your customers safe.

    By implementing Jolt’s remote temperature monitoring system, you can enjoy various benefits, including:

    1. Centralized monitoring of all equipment
    2. Preventing inventory loss
    3. Improving food safety
    4. Automating manual operations
    5. Reducing labor costs
    6. Ensuring customer safety
    7. Hassle-free audits and inspection

    Jolt Remote Temperature Sensors can monitor various equipment, including freezers, fridges, broilers, shake machines, and even lobby temperatures.

    Eliminate Human Error

    Government agencies have established a 2-hour, 4-hour cooling rule to ensure food cools correctly. Don’t leave these steps to pen and paper. Use Jolt, a reliable and precise tool, to ensure each step is followed to reduce the risks of foodborne illness. With Jolt, you can have peace of mind, knowing that your food is always maintained at safe temperatures and monitored using accurate technology.


    Isn’t It Cheaper to Do It By Hand?

    In a perfect world, maybe it would be. As it is, however, life is full of unforeseen circumstances, emergent situations, and imperfect people. Some of the common problems with tracking temperature by hand are: 

    • Habit reduces diligence: It is too easy to fall into the habit of checking off a box on a form without performing the actual checks. This is particularly true for busy people with several routine tasks to complete for every shift. 
    • People are forgetful: People aren’t machines. Things will inevitably happen to distract us from the task at hand, no matter how important. Even the most well-trained and experienced people can’t be expected to be 100% perfect in the performance of all their work duties, all the time. 
    • No alert system for emergencies: In the event that there is a loss of power, surge in temperature, or other unexpected situation, no one will be notified until the next scheduled in-person temperature check. By then, it may be too late to prevent or reverse any damage. Losses of power that happen during closing hours are particularly liable not to be detected until the damage is done unless you have an effective temperature measurement sensor system in place. 

    These and countless other issues that could prevent timely and accurate temperature measurements can easily result in massive financial loss due to temperature fluctuations that go unnoticed. Entire shipments, inventories, and freezers full of food at times need to be thrown away due to something as simple as a cooler that was accidentally unplugged and went unnoticed. 

    In some cases, too, failure to properly check food temperatures can lead to illness, which the restaurant or food service company may be held liable for in civil court. Even if your company escapes being sued, you can bet that a customer who fell ill after eating your establishment’s food will leave a scathing review, at the very least. 

    Investing in a reliable temperature monitoring system can easily prevent such catastrophic losses. 

    Components of a Fridge & Freezer Temperature Monitoring System

    Although fridge and freezer temperature monitoring systems have many components, they’re easy to understand and use. Here’s a brief overview of each element:

    • Temperature sensor: Senses and monitors the temperature in refrigerators, freezers, or other kitchen equipment.
    • Thermal buffer: Buffers temperature readings against temporary air temperature shifts, such as when doors are opened.
    • Temperature Measurement Device: Detects and measures the temperature using probes or infrared sensors.
    • Data Storage: Collects and stores temperature data for easy access and auditing.
    • Alarms and Alerts: Notifies you and your management team of any critical temperature issues, allowing you to address them quickly and prevent potential problems.

    Many organizations have a common problem remembering it’s time to record a temperature. Some kitchens even temp their food every hour because it’s hard to remember the 2-hour/4-hour rules. Not to mention that they start different products at different times. Jolt has figured out how to simplify your solutions. Jolt has a multi-colored light that is wirelessly connected to your temp logs. When getting close to record the time the light will turn red. When and when you are about out of time it will start blinking red. Jolt makes it easy to let folks know that they need to take a temperature, and it’s not another loud beeping sound you can’t hear because it’s in a noisy environment.
