Different Types of Commercial Refrigerators

To help you choose the best commercial refrigerator for your business here is a little more information on some of the different types of refrigerators available.

Walk-In Refrigerators

If you have a large amount of space available and great need for a lot of refrigerator space, a walk-in refrigerator is the answer for you. There are also different types of walk-in refrigerator to choose from depending on your needs, so this idea is worth exploring. However, walk-in refrigerators will take up a lot of kitchen space so only choose this option if you really will use it most wisely as a refrigerator. Ensure you choose good insulation to save on energy bills.

Reach-In Refrigerators

If you have a significant back of house area for preparing food, reach-in refrigerators are an obvious choice. Choose glass doors to easily see what’s available. Reach-in refrigerators come in a variety of sizes to best fit your space.

Refrigerated Prep Tables

If you run a sandwich shop, pizza restaurant or other similar store, a refrigerated prep table can help keep preparation streamlined and smooth. Keep regularly-used ingredients cooled and at arm’s length.

Serve Over Counter Refrigerators

Serve over counter refrigerators are perfect for delicatessens, pastry shops, cake shops and sandwich shops, where produce is on display and ready for purchase. Choosing a serve over counter refrigerator is a great idea for any restaurant where customers pick the ready-made item they want. Serve over counter refrigerators enable customers to help themselves – if this is not what you’re looking for, consider the similar counter top display refrigerator, which has glass covering the items fully.

Under Counter Refrigerators

Need a little more refrigerator space and have some under counter space available? Under counter refrigerators may not be big, and won’t meet all your fridge requirements, but if you’re in need of extra refrigerator space they’re an easy answer.
