As we’ve already discussed, choosing the right refrigeration unit (or units) for a commercial kitchen is an essential part of setting up a food-service business. A full range of refrigerators – all with a different purpose – includes reach-in units, undercounter fridges, walk-ins, merchandisers, and more.
Commercial refrigerated merchandising units – a.k.a. merchandisers – can be found in food-service operations of just about every type. They are designed to openly display prepackaged chilled foods or beverages through a glass door or an open front, so that customers can reach in and take the beverage, cake, sandwich, or snack that they crave without bothering the wait staff or cashier.
After exploring commercial refrigeration inside and out, it’s time to take a closer look at the most important, and ubiquitous, units of all – reach-in refrigerators and freezers. No matter what type of restaurant or catering business you have, your kitchen will inevitably need a reach-in unit which will improve the quality and speed of both food preparation and service.
As we discussed in a previous post, refrigeration units will be one of the most important purchases you make when you set up your commercial kitchen. In this post, we’ll talk about two other useful types of refrigerators found in many commercial kitchens: the refrigerated prep table and the refrigerated chef base.
When launching a new business, caterers must consider all aspects of setting up a commercial kitchen. Whether you are working out of a home kitchen or a modestly sized rented space, some pieces of equipment cannot be overlooked, and chief among them are refrigeration units.
