Strong and Sturdy

Designed with a 430 stainless steel door and exterior sides, the unit features a sleek appearance that's matched with its ability to withstand busy, heavy-use kitchens. Plus, the interior is 304 stainless steel, giving the unit superior corrosion resistance and cleanability; it won't degrade with or become damaged by the inevitable spills and messes. As a result, it's easier for your employees to maintain during the hustle and bustle of their daily tasks. For maximum structural rigidity and temperature retention to keep your products fresh, the entire cabinet is foamed-in place using polyurethane insulation.

Self-Closing Doors

Eco-Friendly Refrigeration

Programmed to maintain temperatures between -8 and -1 degrees Fahrenheit, this freezer ensures that all food products are held in a proper, food safe environment to preserve their quality and integrity. To help acheive this, the robust, bottom-mounted 1 hp compressor uses eco-friendly R290 refrigerant. This specialized 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.

Bottom-Mounted Compressor

In addition, the bottom-mounted design makes it easy for employees to load and unload products due to the raised bottom shelf.

Casters for Mobility

Outfitted with a set of casters, the unit easily rolls aside for regular cleaning or maintenance tasks.

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.
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 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.
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.
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.

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.

    freezers freezer great small external easy delivered defrost definitely buy
    Broke 3 months after purchasing!...would not chill below 35 degrees. Under warranty...but good luck getting someone out to fix it. Spoke to a technician about this brand, and he mentioned that he is constantly repairing Avantco products. This was a complete waste of money...I should have paid better attention to the reviews. Save yourself the hassle - buy another brand for a little more $.
    We appreciate your review, Enrico. The manufacturer of this item offers a two year parts and labor warranty as they strongly stand behind their products, and want ensure they meet the end users needs. Our Customer Solutions team will remain in contact with you about this to get your unit back in proper working order.
    Broke down exactly ONE MONTH after my purchase, wouldnt get colder than 48F(yes, a COMMERCIAL FREEZER ON 48F) Had to wait for the warranty that took over two months to fix it due to covid.. lost over $400 of products inside and two months of my business during pandemic
    We appreciate your review, Mara. We wish this Avantco SS-2F-HC 54 inch Stainless Steel Two Section Solid Door Reach-In Freezer would have worked out for you. Our Customer Solutions team will remain in contact with you about this.
    I put one star because zero stars isn’t an option. I bought this 18 months ago. A line from the compressor rattles when the compressor turns on. It ended up chafing a hole in the line. The line runs inside the body of the freezer and is inaccessible. The warranty is only 1 year. So here’s the deal the commercial repair company told me this has happened to a bunch of these. The only fix is to RIG it and drill a hole in the unit and run the line inside the freezer so it doesn’t happen again. $800 for repairs. Don’t waste your money on this unit. It has a refrigerant that is new and not everyone is qualified to work on it. This repair is because of a CLEAR manufacturing issue that has never been addressed. Don’t buy any of these cheap freezers they are a joke that isn’t funny at all when you have to pay so much money to fix it not even 18 months after purchase.
    Thank you for your feedback! We are sorry your Avantco SS-2F-HC 54 inch Stainless Steel Two Section Solid Door Reach-In Freezer was defective. Action has been taken to remedy this. Please reach out to our Customer Solutions team if you have any questions!
    I am happy with it so far but I think that "2 section" is misleading. It's not 2 sections - It has 2 doors but the interior of the freezer is all one space sharing the same air.
    Thank you for your feedback! We’re sorry you did not prefer this product. For recommendations, please contact our Customer Solutions team.
    This Freezer is start leaking inside before one year, didn’t report sooner because still freezing but temperature never gone below 10 degree, have to get a new one not this brand, Not recommended
    Thank you for your feedback! We’re sorry you did not prefer this product. For recommendations, please contact our Customer Solutions team.
    A slight problem (no refrigerant gas in the compressor so it wouldn’t get cold) initially but the warranty came right out same day and fixed it! Excellent value, hopefully it holds up to volume and daily use. Fingers crossed. Quiet operation, and easy install. I would recommend it
    We purchased this for our small coffee shop to store bakery items and breads. The compressor failed two weeks after we opened, and we lost an entire freezer of merchandise. Webstaurant's service team was great, but it took 3 compressors and nearly a whole month before the repair person was able to replace the defective part. Be careful, users can't change temperature settings without help from the manufacturer, so be sure the temperature range is appropriate before stocking your freezer.
    We appreciate your review, Danielle. We wish this Avantco SS-2F-HC 54 inch Two Section Solid Door Reach-In Freezer would have worked out better for you. Our Customer Solutions team will remain in contact with you about this if you have any further questions.
    When this thing is working it is perfectly fine. However, I have had this thing 4 months and the defrost heater has gone out twice already, the first time was after only a month. It is under warranty so they have fixed it but it is a huge pain to have to go without my big freezer as I run a very busy restaurant. Would definitely not buy this again.
    Thank you for your feedback! We’re sorry you did not prefer this product. For recommendations, please contact our Customer Solutions team.
    had a small 24' freezer but way too small. that finally broke and this worked out great delivered so fast no issues at and lots of storage helps stay organized and prepped for business.
    Great value! I like the adjustable shelves and it's got an easy to read external thermostat. One of my two freezers came damaged and Webstaurant was quick to make it right!
