Its stainless steel design ensures that it withstands heavy, regular use, and its easy operation cuts down on the time spent fiddling with and monitoring the settings for optimal performance.

Frozen Storage

With a spacious freezer portion readily accessible through its two doors, the unit opens up to two shelves to help you organize your ingredients. Plus, because they each accommodate up to 90 lb., the epoxy-coated steel shelves are well equipped for holding heavy bulk ingredients, from pork chops to bags of fries or fish.

Undercounter Height

Because of its undercounter design, the unit effortlessly adds frozen storage space beneath a pre-existing countertop and doesn't require additional space for its own footprint.

Digital Controls

Monitor temperatures by consulting the interior wall-mounted thermometer and use the auto-defrost feature on the pre-programmed digital controller to keep the freezer in excellent shape.

Mounted Casters

To make cleaning and maintenance quick and easy, the unit comes standard with a set of casters. The casters allow you to easily roll the unit aside to thoroughly clean or to access the back for servicing.

Efficient Refrigeration System

This freezer ensures optimal performance by operating with a 1/2 hp refrigeration system that circulates environmentally friendly R290 refrigerant to maintain temperatures from -8 to -1 degree 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.

Durable Construction

This unit is designed for outstanding durability to ensure that it withstands busy kitchen environments with ease. It features a 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. The foamed-in-place polyurethane insulation helps provide structural rigidity and maintain internal temperatures.

Customer Q&AAsk a Question

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.
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 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.
Overall Dimensions:
  • Width:47 1/4 Inches

Complete piece of garbage. Wouldn’t work out of the box. Webstaurant won’t return it. They want it to go through the 3rd party warranty process. The warranty co cannot get a replacement compressor for over a week. Absolutely ridiculous

We use this as a glass chiller in our bar and it's been great so far! Stays super cold even with the doors being opened regularly. Love that it's on wheels and it makes moving it our for cleaning super easy!

This freezer has worked great for us. Our only complaint would be how far out it sticks from our counter top. It has the perfect amount of space for our cafes products.

Item arrived and looked good but would not turn on when plugged in. Used warranty and service provider was able to fix. While item is priced well we did have an expectation of item being received in working order but at least issue was fixed in a week or so.
