What are Commercial Refrigerators?
Commercial refrigerators and freezers are some of the most important pieces of equipment for any foodservice business. Like residential refrigerators, they help maintain the quality of your food and prevent it from spoiling. They also have more features and capabilities than residential units. Commercial refrigerators usually have a larger capacity so that they can accommodate the many ingredients that restaurants, hotels, and other foodservice operations buy in bulk.
Most commercial refrigerators are also self-contained. This means that all the components, from the condenser to the evaporator, are located within the unit. There are also refrigerators with remote systems that are less frequently used, but are necessary for certain applications, such as kitchens with limited ventilation or low ceilings. Either type of unit is designed to store food at the optimal temperatures, keeping it fresh and free of bacteria and other contaminants before use. In commercial refrigerators, foods should be stored at 40 degrees Fahrenheit or below, while in commercial freezers, food should be stored at 0 degrees Fahrenheit or below.
Types of Commercial Refrigerators
There are various types of commercial refrigerators. Some of the most common ones are:
Reach-in Refrigerators: These refrigerators come in different shapes and sizes, with glass doors, solid doors, half doors, as well as one door, two door and three door models. They keep food products cold and within easy reach of the kitchen staff.
Undercounter Refrigerators: Often used as a second refrigerator for storing excess food or for keeping commonly used ingredients close by, undercounter refrigerators save space and are convenient at the same time.Worktop Refrigerators: Best for maximizing space in small kitchens, worktop refrigerators have a smooth countertop surface that can be used for food preparation while the cold ingredients most needed are conveniently stored inside.
