How to Choose Commercial Kitchen Equipment

You know you need commercial kitchen equipment, but are unclear of what to choose for your restaurant or food service establishment. Commercial refrigeration can be a bit daunting when trying to figure out what is best for your business. There are some main things to consider when you're spending your budget.

  1. Space is obviously important. How much space do you have? What will you store in it? Will it fit under a counter? Do you need to store other kitchen equipment above it? How often will the commercial appliance be used? Do you need to move it? Will it fit through doors? Casters are good if you plan on moving the units around or putting them in storage.
  2. Cost. Make sure you choose an Energy Star rated appliances for your kitchen. They are rated to cost you less in electricity bills. See if free shipping is included too - it could save you hundreds in unnecessary costs.
  3. Warranty. ColdTech Commercial has one of the best warranties in commercial refrigeration for a reason. We stand by our products and 3 years bumper to bumper and 5 year compressor warranty gives you piece of mind. Our warranty is written in plain English too - no jargon. You know what you're getting.
  4. Service. Call us directly for service. We know you don't work business hours so call us or email us DIRECTLY - no middle person. customerservice@coldtechcommercial.com or 1-855-241-3251.
  5. Durability. When you choose your restaurant appliance, make sure you get high grade stainless steel, 300 series, it is robust, has sanitary properties and is easy to clean. Cleaning is important for food safety and ColdTech Commercial equipment has gaskets (door seals) that pop off and pop on making side duties quicker. Check to make sure it's stainless steel by putting a fridge magnate on it. Magnates won't stick to stainless steel.
  6. Digital displays. Know exactly what temperature your commercial fridge is with just a glance instead of having to open it up wasting energy. Plus, check if there's an on/off button if you are using it infrequently.
  7. Bottom mounted compressors help with accident risk. You don't need a ladder to do routine maintenance.
