Types of Commercial Refrigeration Equipment




You might think that buying cooling equipment for your store is an easy task but there are many details you need to look at to make it perfect. Even small things like its design need to be on point to get the customer to make a purchase. The prices are higher than for the models you have at home so you need to make a good choice in order to save money. The goal is to be efficient and display everything you need at the same time.

In order to make that choice, you need to know what types exist and what will suit you the best. Some of the features that you should look at include the type of cooling, number of doors and design. These specifications are very important because you have a limited area that needs to be used in an efficient way. A good thing is that there is a model for each occasion.

Reach-in Refrigerators
The name suggests that you are able to access the item from the fridge at arm's length. This is the most used type of commercial fridges that are available. They can in many sizes usually from 25 inches to 90 inches wide. You can see them in any store that sells food because every product can be placed in it. An important fact is that they are not made to showcase the food so don't plan to use them for promoting a product.

They are more useful for efficiently storing and cooling food. If you have your own staff, it is a great choice for them to store food. You can split the models into two categories: dual-temperature and pass through. The first one is used in kitchens and has properties for freezing and just cooling. The second one is the best in fast environment with limited space.

Merchandiser
One of the biggest differences this type has compared to reach-in is that they are accessible to the public. They are used to store many kinds of products not only food but also beverages. Some models don't have the option to place jugs and bottles to make them stable and accessible so make sure you get enough information about a certain type of refrigerator.
A storefront or restaurant is the usual place where you can see them. They can be used to display items you want to make more sales on. Your staff won't use it like other types so the main focus is to be used by the customer. This means that you will need to maintain it more and make sure that the manufacturer is well-known so the lifespan won't be a problem.

Bar Refrigeration
As the name says, they are used at bars but you probably don't know that there are three kinds. Solid and glass doors are used by manufacturers for the Cooler. Solid doors are meant for keg storage or excess storage and glass doors are usually used to display beers. Direct Draw type can save time and are more efficient because employees can both dispense and store beer kegs.
Hybrid is the third type that isn't a common choice but you can find it online. You can use it to store keg beer on one side and glass-bottled beer on the other. You shouldn't let the customers use it instead they can be placed under the counter. They can be used for public display but it can be a waste of resources depending on your business. The main usage is for alcohol if you want it to be at the proper temperature which is crucial for its taste. Read more about it here: https://www.thebalancesmb.com/restaurant-refrigeration-2888873

Display Cases
When the products seem appealing to the customer, it will influence their purchasing decision a lot. This is why people invest in display cases that are used to make the product look better and also keep it fresh. The only purpose is to display so it's less likely that you will place food in it that will be served. Its place is in the restaurant front and it should be inaccessible to anyone except staff.

There are many models to choose from but every kind is specifically made for a certain business. For example, vertical and horizontal cases are mostly used at deli and airports. They usually place items that don't require too much stability to remain refrigerated. Something similar is a model used at bakeries that can be dry or refrigerated and can be also seen at supermarkets.

Besides knowing all the types, which you can see at this website, it's crucial to know the size that will be perfect for the area you want to place it in. You need to look at a few things like is it approachable and does it have enough space for airflow. If you want to make your business function perfectly, you need to look at every detail so there won't be any issues to be fixed later on.

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands

UPHILL....

It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
