RefrigeratorA new commercial refrigerator is one of the most indispensable piece of restaurant equipment in the kitchen for maintaining adjustable shelves and compartments of meat, poultry, eggs, seafood, dairy products, fruits, and vegetables safe. These energy star rated electric powered devices are so not unusual today, we neglect that ice was once a commodity, and that ice harvesting was for centuries the only method of food refrigeration. The 18th century fridge was an ice house was a block of ice used to provide a as a substitute undependable supply of cool air. Every food service establishment is reminded of its significance to our day by day lives when the electricity goes off or the commercial refrigerator or commercial freezer fails, putting the restaurants profits and quality food inventory in jeopardy.
Commercial RefrigerationIn the best of both worlds commercial refrigerator and commercial freezer storage would not be necessary for restaurants. Deliveries would be made just as the chef set out to prepare the dish. All foods would be available at all times of the year. In the real world, storage is necessary, and the incorrect commercial refrigerator or freezer has the potential for causing serious and costly problems.
Commercial RefrigeratorMost kitchens have to much or to little refrigerated space at the proper locations to meet the restaurants menu needs. The physical capacity is adequate, but the restaurant does not have the correct type of refrigeration. Commercial Refrigerators retard the growth of bacteria in foods; it cannot, however, correct damage already done. Perishable and potentially hazardous items can be held in a refrigerator only on a short-term basis. There are two types of foodservice refrigeration units: the walk-in type and the reach-in or upright units.
Walk-in and upright refrigerators are best when made of stainless steel or a combination of stainless steel and aluminum. The doors should withstand heavy use. They should close with a slight nudge. Walk-in units should include an inside unlocked latch to prevent employees from locking themselves in. The door gaskets should be easily replaceable. Condensate vapors and defrost water are unsanitary hazards and a system provided to drain excess water should be outside the unit. An optional device for both types is a warning alarm that signals the manager if the power is interrupted. Walk-in refrigerators should have windows for observation of food items. This saves opening the door if the item isn't there. The unit should be sealed to the floor and offer no access to moisture or vermin. The floor panels should be of heavy duty material.
A commercial reach-in refrigerator is similar to the refrigeration system you have at home. You open the door, reach in, and get the food that you want. You do not want a residential refrigerator in your commercial kitchen. The doors of the reach-in refrigerator and freezer are constantly being opened in a kitchen being heated by deep fryers, convection ovens, griddles, and char-broilers. The home refrigerator compressor cannot handle the constant blasts of hot air when opened in a restaurants kitchen.
Reach in Refrigerators and Freezers come with either a bottom mount compressor refrigerator or top mount compressor refrigerator. The top mount allows from more storage space and is ideal if your work in a bakery or dusty kitchen environment. Flour that spills on the floor get sucked up into the bottom mount compressor and prevents it from working efficiently and will be need to be cleaned constantly. The bottom mount compressor reach-in freezer or refrigerator is best used in hotter kitchens. Remember that heated air rises and colder ground is 15 degrees cooler. The ground air get pulled into the bottom mount compressor and helps your refrigerator to work more efficiently you should keep the Top Mount Compressor unit away from cooking lines.
The bottom mount compressor on reach-in refrigerator is located at the bottom of the unit where temperatures 15 degrees cooler. This makes for easier access for cleaning and operating compared to a Top Mount Unit. Similarly, deep fryers, convection oven, griddle and char-broiler grease fumes are kept away by having the compressor and evaporation coils of the refrigerator at the bottom. Reach in refrigerator and freezers may also be undercounter refrigerator or undercounter freezers and have a worktop for food prep. Display refrigeration may be used to display drinks, desserts, and deli meats and cheese.
