Need Restaurant Equipment? 3 Factors to Consider Before Buying a Walk-In Cooler, Orlando, Florida

Often considered an absolute necessity for most restaurateurs, walk-in refrigerators and freezers store an incredible amount of food at any given time and are a great addition to the busy kitchen. However, it can be difficult choosing this type of restaurant equipment, especially with so many models available on the market. Below, the professionals at Tech-24 share three aspects to consider before buying a walk-in fridge or freezer.

Factors to Consider Before Buying a Walk-In Fridge or Freezer

The Kind of Restaurant You Run 

Before you start shopping for restaurant equipment, it is important to think about the kind of restaurant you run. Are there certain types of foods you need to store frequently? Do those foods have special needs like controlled humidity, enclosed cases, or clearance requirements? For example, a wedding cake shop might require a case capable of storing multiple stacked cakes, while a high-end restaurant may need different sections fitted with separate temperature controls.

The number of meals you serve will determine what size cooler you need. This is one of the biggest factors affecting restaurant equipment cost. As a general rule of thumb, experts recommend choosing a cooler that would provide at least 1.5 cubic feet of storage for every one meal you serve per day in your restaurant.

Maintenance Requirements

You should also think about the quality of the walk-in cooler you purchase since every brand and model has different maintenance requirements. Read user reviews, understand manufacturer warranties, and decide what it will take to keep that fridge or freezer in top condition. Some models feature interior panels that are easier to clean or motors guaranteed to last longer, which can save you time and money.
