Commercial Freezer Types and Their Basic Features

25 May 2020

Owners of commercial establishments that offer food and other similar products are required to store their products effectively. Without efficient storage, these mentioned owners may find it challenging to thrive in their respective sectors since they cannot prevent spoilage of their products.

Fortunately, commercial freezers are widely available for storing and prolonging the life of food products. They now even come in different varieties, with each type boasting diverse functionalities and features that are deemed helpful in making a business successful. Some commercial freezer types and their basic properties are the following:

Walk-in Refrigerators

Both restaurants and dining places can utilise walk-in refrigerators since they need to have a large amount of storage space. Setting up of commercial shelving operations inside the walk-in freezers is also more organised and way easier than other types of refrigeration units. Walk-in units are recommended for storing juices, soft drinks, alcohol, and items that are bought in bulk.

Reach-in Freezers

Reach-in freezers and refrigerators are storage units that are great for the back of the house operations. This type of commercial freezer may come in either glass door reach-in units or solid door reach-in units. Depending on your preference, both mentioned reach-in units may have Dutch-style half doors or full-length doors. Reach-in units are typically grouped into multiple segmented sections.

Under-counter Refrigerator

Under-counter refrigerators function similarly to reach-in freezers. The only difference between them is that under-counter units usually have a shorter form factor, enabling them to fit into small tight spaces. These refrigerator units can effectively help you store a few products that can be used on an as-needed basis. The top surface of these units can even double as a food prep table.

Serve Over Counter

If you are planning to open a caf├ę, meat outlet, or grocery store, then you may want to invest in some serve over counter units. These units can display items in a more appealing fashion through the help of bent or level glass. They work closely similar to counter-top display refrigerators. However, serve over counter units do not contain glass for covering food products, contrary to their counterpart.

Pastry or Bakery Display

The finish of a pastry or bakery display is usually made from either traditional wooden finish or stainless steel that is curved with glass. This type of refrigeration unit has a front glass cover that allows customers to view all the bakery and pastry products. This also enables customers to choose their desired product conveniently.

Bar Refrigerators

Bar refrigerators are frequently designed with black vinyl or a stainless steel exterior that gives them a more streamlined look with the rest of the under-counter bar area. These bar refrigerators come in various types like back bar refrigerators, plate chillers, keg coolers, and many more.

Refrigerated Prep Tables

As the name implies, refrigerated prep tables are intended to be used in the preparation area or cook line in a commercial kitchen. To date, the two primary types of these tables are pizza prep tables and sandwich/salad tables. Since they are intended for food preparation, these refrigeration units contain drawers for storing sauces or dressings.
