Do Chefook's display fridges and serve over counters need indispensable accessories/options?

Salina and Kibuk serve over counter fridges need a tempered glass intermediate shelf and rear sliding shelves in plexiglass in order to maximise the space available and contain the cold in the display area.

Inside the product sheet of each serve over counter or display fridge you will find all the recommended optional accessories on display that can be purchased separately.

What are wine coolers and how are they used?

Wine coolers are wine fridges used for the display of classic 75 cl wine bottles. Bottles are placed in special shelves lying side by side.

The freestanding MONFERRATO wine cooler has been designed to contain 182 bottles, thus, in order to fit in, these must be arranged one on top of the other.

Do display fridges and serve over counters require water drainage?

No, the defrosting of most of our display and serve over fridges, regardless of whether their defrosting is automatic or stopped, takes place by evaporation. Both the refrigerated display and serve over counters are equipped with a tray that collects any small residues of water.

What is the difference between a display refrigerator or refrigerated counter with ventilated and static refrigeration?

The ventilated display chillers or refrigerated serve over display counters allow the temperature to be kept constant. The static refrigerated display units that do not have ventilation do not dry out the product.

Most of the display coolers sold by Chefook are semi-ventilated, i.e. they have a low-ventilation refrigeration system that is ideal for moving the air while maintaining a uniform internal temperature without drying the product.

Do Chefook commercial display cabinets and serve over display fridges include the engine?

All the chiller display units and serve over fridges in our catalogue are equipped with an incorporated motor. If you wish to receive them with remote unit, you will need to request a separate quote.
