Reach-in refrigerators

When shopping for a commercial refrigerator, the size of the refrigerator is an important consideration. Reach-in commercial refrigerators are available with one, two, or three doors. However, you should understand that reach-ins aren’t all created equal. Although they all rely on the same basic technology, they vary widely in size, construction, and design. Before purchasing a new reach-in refrigerator, consider what it will be used for and where it will be installed. Ask the salesperson or retailer you’re considering to ensure you purchase the right one for your foodservice business.

Glass reach-ins feature glass doors to showcase products. They are more energy-efficient than their counterparts, and they let kitchen personnel see what they are storing without opening the door. However, glass doors may block traffic flow. Split-door models offer the most customization, including a glass or solid door. Depending on the application, they may be better for your food storage requirements. Listed below are some of the pros and cons of each design.

Merchandising refrigerators

Merchandising refrigerators is a great way to sell additional products to customers. They allow customers to see what’s inside without opening the door. Purchasing one is an investment, but you can finance it. When choosing a refrigerator, be sure to consider the warranty and the experiences of customers with the manufacturer. If you’re in the food service industry, consider getting a refrigerator with a lighted top and side panels.

Merchandising refrigerators are typically glass door display refrigerators designed to attract customers and encourage impulse purchases. They provide the most attractive presentation of refrigerated products to promote impulse purchases. Merchandising refrigerators are an essential part of any retail establishment, and can range from countertop units to open-air merchandisers. Merchandising refrigerators come in a variety of styles, and you can even choose a unit specialized in your type of product.

Undercounter fridges

If you’re running a cafe, coffee shop, or other similar business, you’ll want an under-counter commercial fridge. While they’re typically made of stainless steel, some have glass doors for easy visibility. A glass door fridge is especially useful in self-service locations because employees can look inside the fridge without putting their hands in the food. Here are a few things to keep in mind before you buy an under-counter refrigerator for your business.

First, consider the space. Compared to household fridges, commercial refrigerators take up much less space than a household appliances. Many of these appliances have built-in wine racks, which make them ideal for bars, restaurants, and other businesses that serve drinks. Under-counter commercial fridges can be found in a wide range of colors and finishes, making them easy to match the design of your space. Under-counter models also come in single and multi-door designs. Two-door models can be used in restaurants, while three-door refrigerators can be found in a bar or restaurants. 6-door drawer units are also common, making them suitable for bars.

Upright refrigerators

Upright commercial freezers are essential for many foodservice operators. They provide reliable temperature control in high-volume environments. They also come in a variety of capacity levels and product configurations. Many upright commercial freezers are equipped with glass doors so customers can view what they’re buying. Upright commercial freezers are more energy-efficient than their glass-doored counterparts. To maximize their efficiency, choose units with two or more temperature zones and a wide range of storage capacity.

Upright commercial refrigerators are typically larger than under-counter refrigerators. They are typically made of stainless steel and have ample workspace. Worktop refrigerators are smaller than upright commercial refrigerators and are generally used in fast-food and small workspace settings. They feature adjustable temperature controls, built-in incandescent lighting, and more. Some of the models are designed to have multiple temperatures, which is ideal for a busy restaurant or food service establishment.

Pass-through units

Pass-through units in commercial refrigerators are an innovative piece of equipment that offers a unique feature – the ability for employees to pass through food while preparing it. These refrigerators are typically installed between the serving line and food preparation areas, allowing workers in the kitchen to prepare cold items, while wait staff can access the cold foods through the rear door. While this may seem like a small feature, this type of refrigerator can help streamline the entire food preparation process.

The main difference between pass-through units and standard reach-in units is the layout of the door. Pass-through units can be designed with a single door or two, depending on the configuration. Swing-door pass-through units are convenient for loading bulk products into a single door. While sliding doors are convenient for storing and retrieving items from the refrigerator, hinged-door pass-through units are easier to clean and maintain. Pass-through units may also have two-door or four-door designs.
