Customer Q&A Ask a Question

I haven’t heard of R290, R600a, or R513a refrigerant before. What is it?
R290 (also known as high purity propane or CARE 40) and R600a (also known as refrigerant grade Isobutane or CARE 10) are hydrocarbon refrigerants. R513a (also known as Opteon XP10) is an HFO (hydrofluoroolefin) refrigerant. 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.
What kinds of pans can I use in my refrigerated prep table?
Always refer to your equipment's Specification Sheet and/or Owner's Manual to see what pan sizes and configurations are recommended. Certain accessories may be needed in order to use pans of a different size than what is recommended. It is also important to note that mixing and matching pans from different manufacturers may result in the pans not fitting properly.

Why make your line cook walk twenty paces to the refrigerator when he can have a whole shifts' worth of ingredients right at his fingertips! The CBE-36 offers refrigerated storage space for a total of two full size, and six 1/6 size food pans underneath, while the larger CBE-52 holds six full size foods pans. Both two drawer models can support up to 730 pounds on top. For even more storage and prep space, the four drawer, 72" model withstands up to 11 hundred pounds, and can hold eight full size food pans below. The Avantco refrigerated chef bases feature electronic temperature controls, you're prepared food and ingredients will be held at foodsafe temperatures between 33-41 degrees Fahrenheit. With a combined work space above and refrigerated storage space below, you can improve working conditions, reduce labor costs, and speed up prep time for faster service. Each Avantco chef base has a 20 gauge stainless steel interior and exterior. The marine edge on the stainless steel top helps prevents liquids from spilling and dripping over the edge for an easier clean up. The removable drawer gaskets and the casters also help make cleaning easier, since you can move the unit away from the wall. The two and four drawer Avantco refrigerated chef bases are ETL and ETL Sanitation listed.

    This Avantco drawer works perfectly so far! Ive had it for going on two months and shows no sign of failure. I bought a larger one to fit a 36" Vulcan griddle and still have room on the sides for my spices and oil station. Highly recommend this drawer cooler.

    I really don't know how we managed without one of these for so long. Having everything you need so close at hand is great. Works perfectly.
