White Glove Delivery - Available -

What is White Glove service?

Standard common carrier delivery options cover the cost of getting an item to your shipping address but our White Glove delivery service does that and more!

The White Glove agent will call to schedule a Call Before Delivery within a four hour window, which gives you the flexibility to work around your busy schedule and to prepare the space where your item will be placed. Upon delivery, trained professionals will unload your large item from the truck, bring it into the room of choice, unpack the item and remove all packaging debris from the premises.

Please note that White Glove delivery will typically add 5 - 7 business days to your order's transit, and only includes 30 minutes of on-site time. If on-site time beyond 30 minutes is required, you may be responsible for additional fees. While the agents will bring the items into the location of your choice, this service does not include set-up of the items being delivered, such as installation of casters, shelves, or other accessories. Small items will not be unpackaged individually; they will be set in place and debris and packaging material will not be removed.

  • 5-15P


    This unit comes with a NEMA 5-15P plug.

1/2 hp Bottom-Mount Compressor

The unit's 1/2 hp compressor circulates R-404A refrigerant, and is bottom-mounted to draw in cooler air for greater efficiency. This style also raises the height of the bottom shelf within the unit so it's easier to reach items on the lowest level.

Digital Temperature Control

A digital temperature control provides precise temperature monitoring and adjustment. With a -10 to 10 degrees Fahrenheit temperature range, you can be sure your products will always stay properly frozen. The crystal-clear LED readout enables at-a-glance monitoring of cabinet temperatures. An automatic defrost cycle prevents unwanted ice buildup in the unit for simplified maintenance.

Versatile Interior

This reach-in freezer comes standard with 3 coated wire shelves. Because the shelves are mounted on shelf rails instead of shelf clips like competitive models, you can remove the shelves and slide in full size food pans! You can move the shelf rails to any position you wish within the cabinet, to make the most of your storage space.

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 freezer when you get a delivery. The rugged door gasket helps keep cold air in.

Customer Q&A Ask a Question

Will this unit fit full size food pans?
Yes, as a standard feature, this unit accepts full size food pans.
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.
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.

Features of the Avantco CFD 1FF Single Door Reach In Freezer

Bring efficiency and dependability to your restaurant kitchen with the Avantco CFD 1 door reach-in freezer. This 23 cu. ft. freezer is packed with standard features for a lower price that will make daily activities in your kitchen easier.

If you are looking for a dependable, high-performance, single door reach in freezer, look no further than the CFD 1FF from Avantco Refrigeration. This 23 cubic foot single door reach in freezer features a bottom-mounted 1/2 hp compressor and uses R404 refrigerant and foamed-in-place polyurethane insulation to maintain proper interior temperatures. Having the compressor at the bottom raises the height of the bottom shelf, making loading and unloading products easier. Plus, a bottom-mounted compressor will draw in cooler air for greater efficiency. If the compressor would need servicing, it is much easier for technicians to reach. Standard casters, two with breaks, make it easy to move this Avantco Reach In Freezer for cleaning. This freezer comes standard with a durable, easy-to-clean stainless steel interior, sides, and door. Many higher-cost units require an upgrade to get a stainless steel interior. A unique shelving bracket design uses slide rails rather than clips to hold in the three-coated wire shelves. The shelves can slide out for easier access and the shelving supports are extra heavy duty and built to last. Compare them side-by-side with one from a competitor's unit and you can see the difference. For additional versatility you can even move the shelves and slide in full size food pans for efficient and effective storage. Digital temperature controls and a crisp LCD read out make it easy to monitor and adjust the interior temperature. While automatic defrost adds to the unit's ease of use, Avantco's freezer's doors have a stay-open feature to make it easier to load and unload products. Standard door locks allow you to secure the contents of your freezer. This 1 door reach in freezer is ETL Sanitation Listed and it is backed by a one year parts and labor warranty, with a five year warranty for the compressor. Shop around, an Avantco Refrigeration CFD 1FF provides more standard features and a lower price than any other brand. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our customer service representative.

How To Program a Carel IR33 Controller on an Avantco Freezer

Watch this video to see how easy it is to set or change the temperature on the Carel IR33 controller used on our Avantco CFD series freezers!

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.

    So far, this freezer has done it's job but has not really blown me away. The temperature gauge tends to fluctuate up to a few degrees when the door is and has been closed. The construction on these things is solid, I'm just a little thrown off by the temperature regulation.

    from Mike's Mindful Plate Posted on

    This is the perfect size freezer for my small bakery! I can't believe how much it actually holds, its amazing! easy to clean, easy to adjust shelves, and dependable!

    from glass city cupcakes Posted on

    look at how perfect this freezer is!

    We have been using this fridge for nearly a year and it works great. It is way better priced than competing fridges and does the same job.

    from Chris Strauss Posted on

    We ordered two of these freezers. I was a little unsure at first because of cheaper price, but was very pleased when they came in and have been working fine for the past 9 months.

    from Russell Tallo, Sr. Posted on

    Love this freezer! The capacity is exactly what we need at the bakery, and it works perfectly. It looks high end and I think it is a good value.

    from polkadotpoundcake Posted on

    Have had this only a couple months. Do not waste your money. It drips water from the inside top so whatever you have on the top shelf will be in a frozen block of ice. The fan is rattling and am waiting for it fail. Takes a long long time to freeze anything and if they are near the bottom the product will not freeze.

    We are over four months into having this freezer in our kitchen and have zero complaints. Holds a good bit of stuff and maintains temperature very well.

    from Hoagie Bros Posted on

    It has been less than a year since I bought this freezer for my daughter's new food truck inter prize Within 4 months it failed to hold a freezing temperature. Shortly thereafter even as a refrigerator it was unreliable. It was installed according to its specifications. My daughter at that time worked for a very prestigious culinary school and had access to refrigeration professionals who came to evaluate her unit in sit u. They changed the thermostat. When that did not work several more corrections/ evaluations ensued under the advice of the Avanco Co. whom her expert spoke multiple times to no avail. My daughter also called the company and recounted the conversations as totally uncaring on their part when she reported she was not in a commercial kitchen per say but a food truck owner. I did read the reviews of this freezer before purchase. As I recall there was one which reported an early failure with no satisfactory resolution to their problem. However. there were many positive reviews so, to my chagrin, I bought it. I tried to rate this product with 0 stars but the review will not submit that way. .

    This freezer was another excellent purchase from Webstaurant, it fits perfect in my deli and I really don't have a whole lot of space. It has so much room inside and shelves are adjustable, which we love. Looks and works great.

    from Triangle Store & Deli Posted on

    I really like this freezer, the only reason I gave it 4 stars and not 5 is because mine didn't work correctly the moment I plugged it in after delivery. I was able to get it maintained and fixed very easily and fast though !

    Posted on

    This freezer is much less expensive than other models but it does not maintain temp like the other ones. Also, the shelves are not easy to set up

    Great freezer

    I purchased this freezer in January 2015. The freezer operated fine until June 2016 when it suddenly quit working. My repairman said that the evaporator coil developed a leak which in turn ruined the compressor. I called Avantco and they offered to send a new compressor, but the warranty for parts and labor had expired after a year. I decided to buy a new freezer rather than repair this one. I will not be buying an Avantco. A freezer should last longer than 16 months. I do not recommend Avantco freezers to anyone.

    Really great price compared to competitions on the market. Temperature drops really fast. Easy to install and clean. Maybe order one more if needed. Highly recommended.

    Posted on

    We purchased two of these freezers for our restaurant. One is being used for appetizers and the other for our ice cream and dessert. If you're looking for a good ice cream freezer this one is it! Best bang for the buck and equal quality compared to the expensive brands. Holds all our tubs of ice cream and keeps all our desserts nice and frozen! The only complaint I have would be that you can't open the door back up for 30 seconds or so it sucks when you forget something or if the door accidentally closes and you needed to get more things out. But I guess it's just something to get used to and make sure you don't forget anything the first time.

    from SriThai Kitchen & Sushi Bar Posted on

    My freezer was delivered last week. As of today works good. After making some research I noticed that this is a great price compared to their competitors.

    Posted on

    Exactly what we needed to replace a smaller freezer in our deli. No need to worry about the temperature. Easy to read digital temp on the outside. Adjustable shelving makes it easy to fit everything into it.


    We go through A LOT of fries and tots so we needed a freezer that can hold all the bags and this is great! The external temperature reading is very handy. I like not having to put one of those hanging thermometers inside. I took away a star because it's hard to open once you just close it and you forget to grab something else from there.

    from Good Doggy Posted on

    Could be a fluke, but this freezer stopped working 10 months after I bought it. But, it was under warranty so they fixed it right away for free. Customer service is from the USA and I wasn't on hold at all. Good company. Just so you know though the doors vaccuum shut so you can't get back in the freezer for a minimum if 10-15 seconds after you open it. Until the gasket seals wear down, than it opens quicker

    from Unami sushi Posted on

    We bought this freezer for our ice cream shop as we desperately needed more storage space. The unit was very well packaged on delivery and so far works perfectly (we have only had it a week). It is just right for our needs; good capacity and doesn't take up much floor space.

    from Harborwalk Scoops & Bites, LLC Posted on

    We purchased this additional freezer for the line. Its roomy and hold the correct temperature in our kitchen that gets quiet hot. I would suggest ordering this over any other brand.

    from Avenue54 LLC Posted on

    I totally stand by the avantco brand!!! I orders this item along with the 48 mega sandwhich prep table and the avantco refridgerator. I have not yet encounter one problem!!

    from Funky fresh food truck Posted on

    very nice freezer. Fits perfectly on our grill line. The price was awesome. This freezer has plenty of space inside and has adjustable shelving. I definitely reccomend

    from Sticky Fingers Posted on

    The freezer is perfect for the space we have. It pairs well with the Avantco Refrigerator as well. At times, it is a little hard to open. It does have adjustable shelves, which are very helpful.

    Very disappointed in this purchase. We have had nothing but problems with the shelves. They are constantly falling down and dumping everything off the shelves. The last thing we need to be doing in the middle of a busy day is to pick everything up and reorganize the entire freezer.

    from Area 57 Coffee Cafe Posted on

    Thank you for your review! We're sorry to hear you've been having so many problems with your freezer. A Customer Solutions Representative will remain in contact until the issue is resolved.

    We use this freezer for our fry portions. It has a super fast recovery time and our portions stay froze no matter how many times we get into it. Can't beat the price either.

    from B-4 Investments LLC dba Wallys Posted on

    This freezer was a workhorse. The digital temperature display on the outside of the unit made it easy to comply with food codes. We used this in a mobile food trailer which gets hotter than a typical restaurant and it worked perfectly.

    from East Coast Favorites Posted on

    Great price! Love the slide out wire shelvings inside! Much larger interior size compare to the same size true or bev air coolers due to the low profile interior design. It would be impossible to put my full size pizza dough box if I bought the same size True freezer, thanks to its low profile design. Digital temperature control is easy to work with. I am a little worried about the manufacturer not being easily reachable and no website to go to.


    Thank you for your review! If you ever have any questions or concerns about a purchase, our Customer Solutions team would be more than happy to help.

    Our freezer died and although we needed it replaced asap, i thought i'd look at to get a price anyhow. With the savings I could enjoy, I decided to wait for the shipping and ordered it thru them. It arrived in less than a week but was very damaged from shipping. We refused the order and called customer service. They promptly had another shipped immediatley and we had it in 4 days! I was amazed. It's working just fine and we saved hundreds from where I normally would have purchased a similar unit.

    from breezy point international Posted on

    I really like this item, the design of the shelves, the door handles, the simplicity of everything about it. Easy to clean, and maintain. Easy to operate. I've bought 4 Avantco refrigerators, and freezers. The only problems are, one of the door handles have come off one of the coolers. Still working on getting it resolved.

    from Country Skillet Restaurant Posted on

    We are happy to hear that you are pleased with your Avantco freezers and refrigerators. They are a good quality brand. One of our Customer Solutions Representatives will be contacting you about the door handle.

    This unit works great. Never again will I buy some of the other brands. The cost of this unit is a fraction of others and is just as good if not better!
