In our catalogue you will find a wide range of commercial counter fridges and freezers to best meet the needs of your catering business. Choose between counter fridges with built-in or remote motor, with or without worktop or splashback, prep fridges and saladette fridges.
The refrigerated counter compared to the commercial upright refrigerator offers the possibility of matching a stainless-steel worktop with a professional refrigerator, thus you won't have to worry about running out of space.
This solution allows you to transform a simple refrigerated counter into a built-in under counter fridge or freezer, so you can place it directly under an existing worktop while preserving optimal thermal insulation, thanks to the presence of a polyurethane under top. The fridge counter can alternatively be combined with a customised shelf to furnish your room.
Counter chillers with a 70 cm (27,5 inches) depth can hold GN1/1 trays/grills; if, on the other hand, you need a refrigerated counter that can hold 60 x 40 cm (23,6 x 15,7 inches) trays, you will need to purchase worktop fridges or freezers with a depth of 80 cm. (31,5 inches).
The splashback is a raised steel sheet placed at the end of the worktop. This will prevent dirt from infiltrating and falling behind the bench fridge placed against the wall.
If you need a pizza prep fridge, you will need to choose a model with a depth of 80 cm (31,5 inches) capable to store pizza boxes.
A counter fridge with internal motor is much more practical to install and can be easily moved during cleaning operations. There is also no risk of overheating as the new generation motors do not produce more heat and noise than the old generation ones.
Because on Chefook you will find new chill counters at convenient prices and you will benefit from a one-year warranty on spare parts. The purchase of a new refrigerated prep counter will also save you problems easily found in used refrigerated counters, such as small gas leaks that can compromise the refrigeration quality, causing greater energy expenditure.
Can worktop fridges and freezers be installed anywhere?
All our commercial counter fridges and freezers can withstand hot environments. Some refrigerated counter models such as the CHTF2PG are tropicalized and can support outdoor temperatures up to +45°C (113°F).
Chefook non-tropical worktop freezers and fridges still support outdoor temperatures of up to +38°C (100,4°F).
It is always recommended to install the fridge and freezer counter away from heat sources, as exposure to high temperatures could cause motor overload.
In order to avoid the possible proximity problem of the counter chiller to hot sources, Chefook provides refrigerated counters with motor located on the left, contrarily to the standard models where it is located on the right-side.
As with heat, the installation of new generation components greatly reduces the noise produced compared to older commercial counter fridges and freezers.
