1/2 hp Compressor

The bottom mounted design of the 1/2 hp compressor not only draws in cooler air for energy efficiency, but also raises the bottom shelf, so you don’t have to bend as much during loading and unloading. It circulates eco-friendly R290 refrigerant. This specialized refrigerant has an ozone depletion potential (ODP) of 0 and a global warming potential (GWP) of 3, making it an environmentally-responsible choice for your business. Also, this unit has an automatic defrost cycle, so your staff doesn’t need to spend valuable time clearing out ice.

Corrosion-Resistant Shelves

These adjustable shelves are coated with plastic to help keep out moisture and resist corrosion and rusting. Each unit comes with 3 shelves and 12 shelf clips, allowing you to place your shelves exactly where you need them to accommodate your small or large food products.

Digital Temperature Control

Digital temperature control allows you to easily adjust the temperature of your freezer's cabinet within its -8 to -1 degrees Fahrenheit range. Plus, the unit will automatically defrost 4 times a day to keep food fresh and properly chilled. The clear LCD readout also helps keep track of the unit’s temperature.

Door Lock

In order to keep your foods more secure overnight and after business hours, this unit features a door lock.

Self-Closing Door

This door is self-closing with a stay-open feature, giving your staff the ability to more quickly and easily load your refrigerator when you get a delivery.

Customer Q&A Ask a Question

I haven’t heard of R-290, R-600a, R-513a, or R-448A refrigerant before. What is it?
R-290 (also known as high purity propane or CARE 40) and R-600a (also known as refrigerant grade Isobutane or CARE 10) are hydrocarbon refrigerants. R513a (also known as Opteon XP10) and R-448A (also known as Solstice N40) are HFO (hydrofluoroolefin) refrigerants. They are being used as an eco-friendly refrigerant by some manufacturers in response to the EPA’s Significant New Alternatives Policy (SNAP) Program. Read more about this program in our blog post on Refrigerant Regulations.
How do I correctly install the shelves into this unit?
To promote proper air flow through your Avantco unit, please ensure that the wire ledges on the shelves are positioned toward the back of the unit. These ledges help keep enough space between your product and the back wall so that cold air can adequately circulate through the cabinet. Incorrectly installing the shelf ledges can restrict airflow, causing the temperature in the bottom of your unit to rise.
Does Avantco warrant this item for use in a food truck?
Avantco warrants new equipment sold to food truck customers to be operational for a period of 30 days from the date of delivery if installed and maintained correctly.
Can this item fit through a standard height 80" doorway?
Due to the height of this item, it may not be able to fit through a standard 80" tall doorway when standing upright. Please consider the best means of entry before purchasing, or measure your entryway to ensure that you will be able to bring your order inside if the item cannot be carried on its side.

Right here we have a beautiful Avantco freezer with the Carel IR33 controller on it, and we're going to show you how to change the temperature set point. Pretty basic; from the home screen you can see we have the temperature displayed of the unit. We're going to press the "set" button for approximately one second, and the display should flash what your set point is. This one is set for negative 7. We can adjust it to run colder, all the way down to negative 10. Or warmer, it should go all the way up to positive 10. Negative 7 is a nice setting to keep this unit running between 0 and negative 10. You press set again, and it takes you back to your home screen, and saves any adjustments you made to your temperature set point.

    Wow what a great product!! Huge steal of a price for the performance it does. We just built a new kitchen with this as a replacement from a similar brand item. It was easy to install, land ready to use. Cleaning is a cinch!!

    This freezer got cold FAST! Brand new, plugged it in, and it was good to go in a half hour! We're in and out of it all the time and it gets right back down to 10° in minutes!
    Thank you for your feedback! We are sorry your Avantco A-19F-HC 29 inch Solid Door Reach-In Freezer was not working well. Action has been taken to remedy this. Please reach out to our Customer Solutions team if you have any questions!
    It is an affordable freezer, but would recommend buying a more expensive model that will potentially last. Webstaurant was great about sending someone out the first time the compressor went out, but since it has not gone into defrost mode. So once a month we have to manually defrost the freezer, which is a giant pain.
    Thank you for your feedback! We’re sorry you did not prefer this product. For recommendations, please contact our Customer Solutions team.
    The freezer worked great for a couple months, however it didn't take long for the temp to not stay down, and it has reached a point of needing to buy a brand new freezer (it's been less than 2 years). Basically techs are saying it will be more cost efficient to buy a better freezer than to try and fix this hunk a junk. Nothing stays frozen in this anymore. And avantco barely offered any assistance in solving the solution.
    We appreciate your review, Lorena. We wish this Avantco A-19F-HC 29 inch Solid Door Reach-In Freezer would have worked out for you. Our Customer Solutions team will remain in contact with you about this.
    We just bought this freezer a couple weeks ago, working pretty good so far, the delivery was on time, really happy with the purchase. Good freezer.
    This freezer has great temperature consistency, it is a good size as well! We can perfectly fit half sheet pans inside for our cookie freezing process.
    This is a great freezer. For the price, you cannot beat it. We've been using it for almost a year now and have had no issues.
    Dead on arrival. Called the service company. Couple of day later, technician came and told me the compressor is bad. And, they don't have the compressor in stock. He doesn't know when they will have the compressor in stock. They will let me know when they will have it. I should have changed the compressor on my 10 year old freezer. It would have been cheaper and less headache. Stay away.
    We appreciate your review, max. We wish this Avantco A-19F-HC 29 inch Solid Door Reach-In Freezer would have worked out for you. Our Customer Solutions team will remain in contact with you about this.
    So far, this freezer has worked well. Because of the suction, sometimes it's a little harder to open, but that means it's doing it's job. There are dark marks on the floor from the wheels because it's so hard to open sometimes.
    Awesome! Automatic temperature control and easy to clean. Just plug it in. Easy to move and operate. Save yourself money and buy this as this works as good as the more expensive ones. Highly recommend!!
    Easy to clean, stays at temperature consistently. We load this full with 8 cases of fries. Each case is 6-5lb bags. Temperature remains freezing even with the high volume of opening and closing the door throughout the day.
    This is a great freezer for the price! We have a small drive-thru coffee shop where we need to keep our bagels, and ice frozen. This doesn't take up too much room, and has enough space for everything we need.
    This is a high-quality and durable freezer. It's aesthetically-pleasing, high capacity, adjustable shelves and casters make it very flexible and versatile. It's perfect for large ice-cream cakes or many bags of ice for the extra freezer space you need. Very happy with the price and overall value.
    I’ve been in business for about 37 years and as a restaurant owner we all dread the repair costs of Refrigiration and in most cases it’s more cost effective to buy new. This unit was working properly for about 3 months. It’s a piece of junk not even worthy of the landfill or wherever it will wind up. I’ve waisted more than $500 so far (not to mention wasted food and deserts) and It would be working long enough for the installed part to run out of warranty. Consider buying this unit if you like a money pit in your restaurant. I wish I could give it negative 5 stars.

    Freezer was shipped in a timely manner. It was easy to unpack and set up. Its been working great for us. We just had to order some extra shelves.
    Bought this freezer as extra storage in my market. So far, we have not encountered any problems. The inside capacity is quite nice, it can hold a good amount of cases/boxes. For the price point, overall I would say this has been a great purchase, would recommend.
    Excellent unit does exactly what I expected. Very good product highly recommend .Avantco is without a doubt a durable and reliable product. 100% Satisfied with this product.
    Got a price from a local vendor before looking at this one. For the same freezer it was 400 more. Very large cooked quick. Keeps frozen and a must for any restaurant
    This is a great freezer if you are limited on space like we are. Instead of constantly having to open the walk-in freezer, we are able to keep routinely used goods in this little freezer that requires far less energy and time to maintain its temp. it is quite spacious and on wheels if we ever need to move it.
    So far this freezer is working great. It chilled fast and is everything the description stated is true. It does have a good door suction after opened and no rear castor locks - so don't yank too hard as the freezer will tip towards you. It comes with 3 shelves (although I could use a few more). The freezer is wider than my previous... my learning curve. Measure everything before you order! I had the white glove deliver (for my convenience). It was worth the money to me and gave me peace of mind for delivery. The gentlemen were courteous and helpful. Overall I am happy with the purchase.
    Would not recommend this freezer to anyone. Have had nothing but issues from since we purchased. Had company out several times while covered under warranty. Issue never resolved, will not keep temp.
    Thank you for your feedback! We’re sorry you did not prefer this product. For recommendations, please contact our Customer Solutions team.
    Super roomy reach in freezer. I love it and it keeps food frozen. I personally like to take the shelves out of it and replace them with the speed rack style shelving!
    I absolutely LOVE my Freezer. This item was a excellent purchase. it stores a lot an the digital feature is accurate. I would recommend and I would buy a large one once I get into a larger space.
    The Avantco Reach-In Freezer works absolutely amazing. It keeps the food incredibly fresh and fits perfectly where we needed it to and doesn't take up space at all. Stays extremely cold.

    This freezer works great. It has an easy to ready display to read temperature and is user friendly when you need to change the temp. Only complaint is that once you open an shut the door, it creates a suction and you are not able to open it again right away. You have to wait a minute before you can open the door again
    When I received the freezer, the health department was coming in a few hours to inspect my equipment. In no time this freezer was completely cooled and at the right temperature.
    I need this product for my ice that i be freezing. So i can make my shaved ice cones. Its very nice looking freezer meet all my needs.
    We have had this freezer for about 5 months and no issues so far is very quiet and good looking, work like a champ keeping our fruts frozen ready for smoothies.
    Perfect size for my food truck. Wish it would have came with 1 more shelf. Not easy to keep spots and fingerprints off the outside.
