Keep all your essential ingredients and prep items nearby with this Avantco CPT-71 71" refrigerated countertop prep rail.

Perfect for storing items such as sliced tomatoes, pickles, relish, onions, and lettuce, this unit increases the ease of prep work. It ensures the condiments, sandwich toppings, or salad ingredients are kept at the appropriate temperature but still close at hand. This unit should only be used during operational hours to maintain the cold temperature of pre-chilled food. It should not be used for continuous or long term storage, but rather maintained with a daily emptying and cleaning.

Countertop Size

If you need a prep station for your restaurant or cafe, this prep rail is a great choice! It offers the cold storage area you need for your condiments but can be placed on your own countertop. This is especially important if you don't have the budget or the space for a full prep refrigerator. This model can hold a total of (8) 1/3 size 6" deep or (16) 1/6 size 6" deep food pans (sold separately) and comes with pan support bars. Additionally, a stainless steel hinged cover can be closed to prevent loss of temperature and protect against airborne contaminants.

Sturdy Construction

Exterior and interior type 201 stainless steel construction ensures long-lasting durability and corrosion-resistance. Non-scratch plastic feet provide stability and keep it from sliding or leaving marks on your countertop.

Powerful Refrigeration

A self-contained refrigeration system uses eco-friendly R600a refrigerant, providing reliable and even cooling throughout the unit. R600a refrigerant has an ozone depletion potential (ODP) of 0 and a global warming potential (GWP) of 3. The unit is an environmentally-responsible choice for your business.

Digital Temperature Control

This unit has an integrated electronic thermostat that allows you to set the temperature between 33 and 41 degrees Fahrenheit. Its external digital LED panel displays the set temperature so you can make sure that it is always set at the correct holding temperature for your food. This unit requires a 115V electrical connection for operation and includes a 5' cord.

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.

DO NOT BUY. We received TWO defective units back to back (one being replaced under warranty). Both units' thermostats were set to 36 - 43 (first unit) and 36 - 50+ degrees while the product page and manual both state 33 degrees. The cold wall method of cooling is already not aggressive in its thermal capacity, but combined with maximum setting of 36 degrees makes it completely insufficient for commercial applications. Your products will rise to 45 degrees when held overnight, covered, and lid closed. During operations (and within the operating parameters of a maximum ambient temperature of 90 degrees) your products will rise to 50-52 degrees in most slots. This entire product line should be removed from Webstaurant's catalog for this kind of build quality - you can literally achieve better results with buckets of ice. We've never seen this kind of shockingly poor build quality right off of the pallet. Do not buy, stay away.

Buyer Beware! This is unfortunately a problem with ALL AVANTCO products at Webstaurant. They are unable to contact the manufacturer. If you need parts you will be told to go to a local hardware store and figure it out yourself. The hinge pins for the lid on this particular product backed out from normal use and are missing. I contacted Webstaurant via live chat and they told me they have no contact information for the manufacturer. There was a bizarre and uncomfortable avoidance of addressing the broad issue of not necessarily an unwillingness to help but an inability to help. I felt deceived but didn't feel like it would be productive to make that accusation, however, I cannot comprehend being a primary supplier for a product with no ability to reach the manufacturer. The circumstances are unsettling regarding any Avantco product so again, Caveat Emptor, consider yourself warned and informed.
