    1. True's unique oversized refrigeration systems keep milk temperatures colder while maintaining an excellent energy efficiency rating (and lower utility costs for you!) 2. 1 year warranty on all parts and labor plus an additional 4 year warranty on the compressor 3. Milk temperatures are kept in the range of 33 to 38F thanks to forced air refrigeration systems, including extra large evaporator coils, condensers, and higher horsepower compressors, so you can rely on the unit to do its job. 4. The all Stainless Steel Doors are great for easy, self service and they conveniently drop down when not in use and flip up, holding their position when they need to be open for a period of time. Door locks also come standard on these units. 5. Many True milk coolers are built with a non-chip, non-peel vinyl exterior with stainless steel service doors. The interior is constructed of an NSF-Approved  aluminum liner and a reinforced stainless steel flooring. {Note that some milk coolers, like this one have a solid stainless steel exterior while others have a solid stainless interior and exterior} 6. True Milk Coolers also come equipped with a convenient clean out drain as well as racks for easier storage 7. True manufactures all of their milk coolers in the USA-become a part of this great company!

    Common Questions Why do some of the models have a -DS at the end of them? The -DS is referring to the Dual-Sided Construction, meaning there are doors on either side of the unit for double access Why do some of the models have a -S and a -SS at the end of them? The -S is referring to the solid stainless exterior of the cooler while the -SS means that both the interior and exterior of the unit are constructed of stainless steel. How Many Crates Will These Units Hold? The number of crates a True Mfg Milk Cooler will hold is dependent upon how big the cooler is. For instance, the TMC-34-DS holds 8 milk crates while the TMC-49-DS holds 12. You should be able to find the number of crates each model holds on the product page.

  • What You May Not Know About Floral Coolers...

    Often times we get the question from customers about whether or not they should buy a floral cooler specifically for their floral operation, or if they would be better off with a standard merchandiser for their blooms. The answer is in fact more technical than you'd think and could directly effect your business if flowers are your field.   The main difference between floral coolers and basic refrigerated merchandisers that you would display food or beverages in is the refrigeration system. Floral coolers have refrigeration systems that are specifically designed to hold flowers at a precise temperature and humidity level. In fact, the True Mfg Floral Coolers on MissionRS.com are designed to hold 35°F with a baffled airflow, blossom supporting system that keeps the inside of the floral cabinet at the perfect temperature and humidity, ensuring the flowers have a longer shelf life. Other glass door merchandisers utilize refrigeration systems which don't maintain the correct humidity levels that a commercial floral case does, thus they can quickly deyhdrate and "burn" the flowers inside the cavity. As a result, this expedites the aging process and diminishes the life span of your freshly cut flowers. Invest in the Best with True Mfg Commercial Floral Cases and get longer lasting blooms! Plus, when you buy a commercial floral cooler or any refrigeration from True Mfg with us online, you get Free Shipping and Liftgate to your commercial address.
  • Get Your Ice Machine Ready For Summer

    In the hot summer months, the demand for ice in your restaurant or place of business goes up dramatically. Therefore, it's important to take extra maintenance precautions on your commercial ice machine(s) so you can extend the lifecycle of the unit while ensuring the cleanliness and purity of your ice. Remember, your ice is important to your customers and to the overall quality of your drinks.

    The most common analogy to help prove the importance of commercial ice machine maintenance is to think of your ice machine as a car. If you never maintain the car, change the oil, etc., it will eventually burn up and destroy the engine. Your ice machine is the same way. When it's working hard, particularly in the summer months, to produce a sufficient amount of ice for your demand, it's vitally important to maintain the machine often and regularly it so it doesn't wear down. No ice on a hot summer day = unhappy customers. How Often Do I Need To Maintain My Machine? Maintenance frequency is largely dependent on the usage. The general rule of thumb is that your machine should be serviced every 6 months. However, this largely depends on what kind of kitchen and demand you're talking about. Fast food chains, drive-thrus, delis, and other places would be advised to maintain their unit on a more regular basis to prevent the build up of scale and other impure substances that could harm the taste, clarity, and quality of the ice.  Heat is one of the biggest factors that can cause poor ice machine performance but so is neglecting to service it. Make sure the condenser coil and the evaporator are clean so production doesn't slow down. Our Suggestion For You We suggest scheduling a professional service and maintenance at the beginning of the summer. Having an authorized service agent physically take apart the unit, clean all the parts, sanitize it properly, change out the filters, and put it back together will ensure optimal, hassle-free performance when you need it most. To find a local, authorized service agent call the Manufacturer of the Ice Machine you have to schedule an appointment! Other Helpful Tips & Ideas: 1. The next time you're looking to invest in a new machine, think Energy Star. We have lots of Energy Star Rated Ice Machines that will rake in 10% more water savings and 15% more energy savings than comparable, non-Energy Star Rated units!

    Look

    2. Keep the Machine in a Cool Place in the Kitchen (if possible) 3. Set the machine to run overnight for added energy savings 4. It's easy to forget about regular maintenance, so keep track of service dates and plan ahead so you're always on top of the proper maintenance schedule Check out all the Commercial Ice Machines available on MissionRS.com!
