Under Counter Refrigerators: Buying Guide

Commercial undercounter refrigerators are often recognized as the most common refrigerator units in a commercial kitchen. As the name suggests, an under counter fridge fits under a kitchen counter and offers quick, easy access. Their height is perfect for work like cutting, organizing, and storing. Under counter units come in a large variety of sizes and shapes. Generally, the larger the under counter cooler, the more storage compartments it has. Because undercounter coolers are often needed to fit in tight spaces, be sure to determine the correct size for your business. Under counter refrigerators mostly come with a stainless steel exterior and swinging or sliding doors. The doors are great for refrigerated storage and some models have glass doors that allow customers or cooks to quick view items inside.

Common Questions:

Q: What Size Do I Need?

A: Before purchasing a counter depth fridge be sure to measure the length, width, and height of space the fridge will be placed in.


Q: Casters or Legs?

A: Casters, also known as wheels, are a great option if you would like the fridge to be portable. These allow the under counter fridge to be moved easily for duties such as cleaning. Locks on the wheels ensure the unit will not move out of place. Legs are preferred for units that do not need to be portable.
