How to Choose Commercial Appliances

If you're purchasing commercial appliances there are a few things you should know or think about before making your final decision. Your restaurant or food service establishment should be aware of some top level items when choosing the right restaurant equipment. Before we get started you need to think, what will I use it for, is it scalable during your restaurant rush and holiday periods? Does it meet food safety guidelines and what is its operating and service costs. ColdTech Commercial appliances are Culinary Cool.

  1. Warranty. Almost above all else make sure you get a great - not just good - warranty with your commercial appliance. Not to brag, but ColdTech Commercial has one of the best warranties in commercial refrigeration. 3 years bumper to bumper and 5 years compressor. The best part? If you need service or have questions, like you, we don't just work business hours call us toll free anytime: 1-855-241-3251 or email us customerservice@coldtechcommercial.com
  2. Benefits of Stainless Steel. High grade 300 series, stainless steel is durable, recyclable, and has its own sanitizing properties to help mitigate risk with food safety. Our commercial appliances have door gaskets (the seal) that simply pop-off and pop back on. No need to stand there bending with a scrub brush. The ease of use cuts down on side duty labour.
  3. Cost. Energy Star rated appliances help with the cost of your utilities by using less energy. Plus, external digital displays help the compressor work less since you don't have to keep opening the doors to check.
  4. Space. Do you have the space for a walk-in refrigerator? Do you need a portable refrigerator on casters? There are undercounter refrigerators and undercounter freezers for small spaces. Do you need a front of house refrigerator for desserts, sauces and condiments? Will the commercial appliances fit through doorways?
  5. Features. Choosing the right features for your commercial kitchen is important.
    1. Shelves. How the shelves affixed in your refrigerator? Pegs or sliders? Sliders are more durable and easier to use. How much weight can the shelves hold? Shelves should be able to hold up to 60kg/ 132.3lbs. Do they hold your heaviest items? Also check to see how many shelves you get.
    2. Casters. Is the commercial refrigerator on casters? Can you move it, if you need to?
    3. Is there an on/off button? Sometimes, you just don't need to it and why waste energy or strength unplugging it.
    4. Capacity. Check to make sure you're getting the largest gross capacity possible. The bigger the capacity the more you can store in your fridge.
    5. Lockable. Does your commercial appliance lock? The after hours muncher could be kept at bay.
