Energy Star Appliances
As an ENERGY STAR retail partner and commercial kitchen equipment dealer, TigerChef has committed to stocking ENERGY STAR appliances and qualified equipment and helping to raise awareness of energy efficient products and practices for commercial kitchens. ENERGY STAR is a government-backed, voluntary partnership program between the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and industry organizations (such as manufacturers, utilities, and retailers) helping save money and protect the environment through energy efficiency. Through our partnership with the ENERGY STAR program, TigerChef works to inform consumers about products that save significantly more energy and environmental resources than similar equipment.
The ENERGY STAR mark on qualified equipment signifies that the product is designed to help you save energy and money while helping save the environment by reducing greenhouse gas emissions. All products that earn the ENERGY STAR are certified by independent organizations to ensure that they deliver the energy savings promised by the label. Outfitting an entire kitchen with a suite of ENERGY STAR qualified CFS equipment can save operators about 370 Million British thermal units per year (MBtu/yr), or the equivalent of more than $3,300 per year.
The ENERGY STAR label appears across eight commercial food service (CFS) product categories and continues to expand. ENERGY STAR’s CFS program currently covers the following categories: commercial dishwashers, fryers, griddles, hot food holding cabinets (HFHCs), ice machines, ovens, refrigerators & freezers, and steam cookers.

Many electric and gas utilities across the country offer prescriptive incentives to help offset the initial cost of purchasing energy-efficient equipment. The ENERGY STAR CFS Incentive Guide highlights rebates up to $3,000 across more than 50 states. This Guide, as well as a CFS Incentive Finder tool, searchable by zip code, is available here. TigerChef can even help you identify eligible incentives and process the requests that will help to put money back in your pocket!
