A commercial refrigerator is one of the most valuable pieces of equipment to purchase for a restaurant, pub, grocery store, or church kitchen. It’s critical to get the commercial refrigerator or freezer that best suits the space you have available in your venue. Top-mount refrigerators, for example, are optimal in dusty work environments, such as bakeries and pizza shops where flour can settle on surfaces. In hot kitchens (above 75°), bottom-mount refrigerators are favored because as heat increases, top-mounted models must work harder to stay cold. There are many options for freezer and refrigeration accessories, including regular and automated industrial refrigerator thermometers that alert you when internal atmospheric temperatures surpass dangerous thresholds for food-service items.

The number of sections your equipment requires is primarily determined by the amount of storage space you need. A commercial refrigerator with a single segment usually comes with three shelves, with the option to purchase more if needed. Larger commercial refrigerators are divided into two or three parts, each with its own access. If you’ve undecided on how many parts you’ll need, opt for the larger alternative rather than cramming lots of items into a compartment that’s too small. Overfilled refrigerators may be unable to hold stable temperatures and are more likely to break down. Conversely, refrigerators must never be less than half full for optimum cooling.
Dutch doors are a good option for some commercial refrigerators, dividing one vertical section into two different storage areas. Divided sections are more energy-efficient, which is beneficial if the device will be opened regularly. When a half section is accessed, the device will lose less air and the machine will not have to work too hard to restore temperatures, while the unopened parts will remain cold and locked.
Most versions come with solid or glass doors, but some come with both, with the glass doors on top and the solid doors on the bottom half of the unit. In certain circumstances, solid doors are the more energy efficient of the two options, due to better insulation. They’re also the most popular and, in most cases, the least expensive option.
When the door is locked, glass allows access into the reach-in cooler, allowing people to see what’s inside each segment before opening it. If the commercial refrigerator is frequently used, this could save money in the long term by reducing the amount of time the door is left open. It also allows kitchen workers to review stock levels without having to unlock the lock. A glass merchandiser can be used to showcase items to the public and is a great for selling bottles, cans, prepackaged treats, and other grab-and-go goods.
