How to Choose Commercial Under Counter Refrigerators

Is your kitchen limited in space? Are your commercial appliances too far from your prep area? Something to consider is commercial under counter refrigerators. How do you know what to choose? Capacity is important when choosing under counter refrigeration and the available space you have in your restaurant or food service kitchen should allot for the largest cabinet capacity you can fit.

  1. Under counter refrigerator capacity is important to consider. Generally, you're looking for as much usable space as you can find for the space that you have. Whether it's one or two door under counter you should also get shelves to help arrange food, sauces, prep ingredients properly.
  2. Warranty. No matter what type of refrigeration you purchase, ensuring your refrigerator is covered for 3 years bumper to bumper and 5 years compressor will give you peace of mind. ColdTech Commercial has that warranty - it's one of the best warranties in commercial refrigeration.
  3. Casters. Getting a solid door, under counter freezer or refrigerator and be able to move it conveniently is really useful. Casters are also useful if you need to clean behind the unit.
  4. Stainless steel durability. The robustness of stainless steel is especially important for under counter refrigerators in case things are dropped, pushed into it - aluminum will get dented and sometimes dents rust, so inevitably stainless steel is a good choice. It also has sanitizing properties, so health inspectors love to see it gleam in restaurant and food service kitchens. Cleaning it is simple keeping it inline with food safety specifications.
  5. Door gaskets and food safety. Not one of things that come to mind when choosing an under counter refrigerator, but nevertheless it is important in terms of side duty labor. What is a door gasket? It's the seal between the fridge and it's door. ColdTech Commercial takes pride in the details. The whole door gasket pops in and out making it easy to clean and rinse instead of crouching down with a scrub brush.
  6. Front, outside digital displays and on/off buttons. These are the details that matter. These features save you money on electricity. How? Well, when you open a door to check the temperature the compressor has to work harder. With ColdTech Commercial's under counter refrigerators they are on the front - one quick glance can tell you what temperature it is and one quick push of a button can click it on and off.
  7. Service. A good warranty is only good if its followed up with great customer service. There's nothing like having $500 worth of food in fridge and something goes wrong, but you have to wait until business hours in another time zone before you can call anyone for help. We're not them. We answer the phone.
