Commercial Refrigerator Buying Guide

A commercial kitchen is comprised of many moving parts, but at the center of all these things is the importance of reliable commercial refrigeration to store your perishable goods. Like any large scale investment, one of the most important things to do before buying a commercial refrigerator is to research all your options. Thoroughly understanding what you have to choose from and what the best unit is for your needs is a crucial part of the buying process. Rushing into a buy could lead to unnecessary cost and distress down the line. If you are in the market for a commercial refrigerator, you probably have lots of questions running through your mind: What size do I need? Top mount or bottom mount? Glass door or solid door? Assess all your options with this refrigeration guide and find the perfect fit for your business.

Why Choose a Commercial Refrigerator?

Commercial Refrigerators have many strengths and differences from residential units. One of the main differences is the strength of the compressor; commercial refrigerators are outfitted with much stronger compressors specially designed to handle the rigorous functions required of a bustling commercial kitchen on a daily basis. The compressor on a commercial refrigerator is designed to stay cold, even in warm conditions, and to keep food at an optimal, safe temperature. Ensuring food safety is one of the most important rules to adhere to in the foodservice world. Buying commercial is one way to ensure you will meet food safety requirements set forth by your state. The solid construction and NSF approval allows you to run your kitchen with minimal stress and assurance in your equipment.

What Size Refrigerator Should I Get?

When determining what refrigerator to buy, size is one of the most important factors to consider. Knowing what size refrigerator you need is totally dependent upon the scale of your business and it’s also going to factor into how much room you have in your kitchen to physically place the unit. Measure the dimensions of where you’d like to place your machine and make sure to allot for a few inches of clearance on the back and side of the unit to allow for proper air flow. Next, determine the amount of food you will be storing and preparing on a daily basis. If you’re running a restaurant, how many people are you planning on feeding? Our commercial refrigeration comes in a variety of storage capacities for all different sized establishments and needs.

Top Mount or Bottom Mount?

Are you looking for a top or bottom mount refrigerator? The difference between a commercial refrigerator with a top mount and a bottom mount is the location of the compressor and the condensing unit. Each type has its pluses and minuses.

Top mount units generally have a little more interior space because simply because of the design. Keep in mind, since the compressor and condenser are located on the top of the unit, the cavity of your refrigerator will be a little lower to the ground which means you will have to bend a little lower to reach product stored at the bottom.

Bottom mount refrigeration means the cavity of the refrigerator will be raised a little higher from the ground. Most operators use the top of the refrigerator as storage space but is really not recommended by most factories.

In the battle for supremacy (and a number of years back), negative sales pitches were quite common in this industry. When speaking to a person selling bottom mount units, you may hear negatives about top mount units like "Since hot air rises, the compressor on a top mount unit is running at a higher temperature which will cause it to give out quicker". And you will hear the opposite if speaking to a salesperson of top mount units, "Bottom mount units are too close to the ground so they will build up dust, dirt, and grime, over a short period of time which will cause a shorter life span of the unit".

Truth be told, technology has come a long way the past 20 years and manufacturers take these things into consideration when designing and building refrigeration. Those stories are pretty much a thing of the past. You can purchase either commercial refrigerator with the assurance you are receiving a quality product.
