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.
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.
What kinds of pans can I use in my refrigerated prep table?
While various configurations combining traditional 1/3 size, 1/6 size, and other food pan sizes are possible, it's important to 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.

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.

I do like this product. The flat top sits on top and everything you need for burgers is right under. However to move the flat top to clean under is a little difficult being so heavy.

What an amazing chef base able to put tons and tons of stuff in the two drawers and able to keep it at Tampa and separated enough for me cheddar we have such a wide variety that goes in our chef face that allows our cooks be able just to lean down open up the drawer and be able to get a steak right onto the flat top

This thing is an absolute unit. I put the avantco 36 in griddle on top and it handles the weight without a problem. There is plenty of space for hotel pans of all sizes
