What should you consider before buying commercial refrigerators?
When selecting a commercial refrigerator, you will want to consider the total cubic feet of the unit, the number of door or drawers, and the external dimensions of the unit.
The direction the door swings is also something to be aware of, as it could disrupt the workflow of the kitchen. Commercial refrigerators will either be mounted on castors or legs. Castors are ideal as you can easily move the unit, and they are able to be locked when you are done moving them.
Commercial refrigerators have many important differences to residential refrigerators. A residential refrigerator may have the same external dimensions as a commercial refrigerators, but the commercial refrigerator will almost always offer more internal capacity.
Commercial refrigerators biggest bonus is their powerful compressors. If the temperature every drops due to the door being open, you can be assured the unit will quickly bring down the temperature.
Residential units provide door storage, but this is actually a bad thing when it comes to food safety. Items stored in the door will not be as cold as the other items, meaning the refrigerator will not stand up to sanitation inspection.
Commercial refrigerators are made of commercial grade materials, and must be certified by restaurant sanitation standard. Residential units will not comply with health code inspection.
Commercial refrigerators also have the bonus of having curved interior corners. This makes them a lot easier to clean. All in all, buying a commercial refrigerators is your only safe bet for a commercial establishment.
