The Avantco AU-27R-HC 27" undercounter refrigerator will provide you with a dependable cold food storage solution.

Because of its undercounter design, this refrigerator effortlessly adds cold storage space beneath a pre-existing countertop and doesn't require additional space for its own footprint. This makes it easy to add food storage to an otherwise cramped kitchen, maximizing the space available. Made of stainless steel and using eco-friendly refrigerant to keep cool, the model provides long-lasting durability and makes for a smart investment. It requires a 120V electrical connection for operation.

Spacious Interior

With a spacious refrigerator portion readily accessible through its single door, the unit opens up to a shelf that will aid in organizing your ingredients. Plus, because it accommodates up to 90 lb., the epoxy-coated steel shelf is well-equipped for holding heavy bulk ingredients, from dozens of eggs to jars of condiments and sauces.

Built to Last

This unit is designed for outstanding durability to ensure that it withstands busy kitchen environments with ease. It features a 430 type stainless steel exterior, which provides both strength and a smooth, sleek appearance. The interior, made with aluminum, also offers the durability necessary for regular use.

Efficient and Eco-Friendly

This unit ensures optimal performance by operating with a 1/4 hp refrigeration system that circulates environmentally friendly R290 refrigerant to maintain temperatures from 33 to 40 degrees Fahrenheit. R290 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.

Easy to Use

Operation of the refrigerator is easy, thanks to its special features. Monitor temperatures by consulting the interior wall-mounted thermometer and use the auto-defrost feature on the pre-programmed digital controller to keep the unit in excellent shape.

Fully Insulated

The foamed-in-place polyurethane insulation helps provide structural rigidity and maintain internal temperatures.

Includes Casters

Because the unit includes a set of casters, it's easy to roll aside for cleaning the floor and servicing the refrigerator.

Customer Q&AAsk a Question

How do I know if this unit will fit under or match the height of my ADA-Height counter?
Many manufacturers offer their refrigeration equipment in several different height options to best meet your needs. Here's a breakdown of how we classify these different heights:

Counter Height: Work surface is more than 34" high; standard height unit.

ADA Height: Work surface height is 34" or less; complies with ADA regulations.

Low Profile: Work surface height is less than 32"; designed to fit under most ADA-height counters.

If the unit you are purchasing does not have a flat top, such as a worktop or sandwich/salad prep table, it may affect whether or not it will align with certain countertops. To ensure that the product will meet your needs, please reference the product's literature and specifications.
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.
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.
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.

Unfortunately, this item was delivered non-operational. It could cool slightly but never reach temperature. It was shipped in great condition with no dents or scratches, however, I don't recommend this product to anyone.

after 12 months, will not go under 50 degrees and we cannot find any service company that will work on this new type of refrigerant. It was out of warranty by less than a month and webstaurant was completely unhelpful in helping us find someone to repair the unit.
