Stainless Steel Design

The outside of this unit is made of type 430 stainless steel. Plus, a corrosion-resistant 304 stainless steel interior makes it easy to clean and ensures you'll never be set back by spills.

Self-Closing Doors

The self-closing door design helps to prevent energy loss by making sure that the doors close properly even when you have your hands full.

Easy Operation / Optimal Refrigeration

An equipped digital controller allows for pre-programming and includes an auto-defrost feature for optimal control. The rear and side-breathing refrigeration system is centered around a 1/3 hp compressor and a top mounted cooling fan which ensure even temperatures throughout the interior, even after the doors are opened. This refrigerator circulates environmentally-friendly R290 hydrocarbon refrigerant to maintain temperatures from 33 to 40 degrees Fahrenheit. R290 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.

Adjustable Shelves

With a spacious refrigerated portion readily accessible through its two doors, the unit opens up to two shelves to help you organize your ingredients and best utilize the 11.2 cu. ft. interior. Plus, because they each accommodate up to 90 lb., the epoxy-coated steel shelves are well equipped for holding heavy bulk ingredients, from dozens of eggs to jars of condiments and sauces.

Removable Door Gaskets

This refrigerator has removable door gaskets for easy cleaning and replacement.

Foam Insulation

Foamed in place polyurethane insulation helps to keep the interior of this unit cold and provides additional structural strength.

Customer Q&AAsk a Question

How do I know if this unit will fit under or match the height of my ADA-Height counter?
Many manufacturers offer their refrigeration equipment in several different height options to best meet your needs. Here's a breakdown of how we classify these different heights:

Counter Height: Work surface is more than 34" high; standard height unit.

ADA Height: Work surface height is 34" or less; complies with ADA regulations.

Low Profile: Work surface height is less than 32"; designed to fit under most ADA-height counters.

If the unit you are purchasing does not have a flat top, such as a worktop or sandwich/salad prep table, it may affect whether or not it will align with certain countertops. To ensure that the product will meet your needs, please reference the product's literature and specifications.
Can this unit be built into cabinetry?
It should not be built into cabinetry. This unit requires 3” of clearance on all sides for proper ventilation.
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.
Why is there a step in the interior of this undercounter unit?
This unit’s refrigeration system is located in the lower rear of the cabinet, causing the step in its interior. The step may decrease the inner depth of the cabinet's lower interior versus what is listed as its overall interior depth, so please check the unit’s specs and diagrams to ensure it will accommodate your storage needs.
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.
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.

This unit required technician reprogramming. It was not holding temperature appropriately when initially received. It seems it was programmed with the old refrigerant settings applied to the controller.

Frank P. from West Georgia Foods LLC on 11/17/2019

Love the sturdy counter top space it provides. Has Easy access to milks for smoothies. The doors have great seals. Like the adjustable racks for items.

Tanner J. from The Fountain Of Juice on 08/09/2018

Works great, we love the locking wheels. This unit holds temperature phenomenally. Lots of space to store your ingredients in and has lots of shelf space

Maximiano from Street Tacos LLC on 07/29/2022

Ordered fridge through white glove service, item came as described, easy to install and works well so far (1 month). The only downside so far was the white glove service which the delivery people refused to take away the trash, make sure you have the phone number so you can call Webstaurantstore

I installed the frig about a week ago so I have initial impressions. The price for this unit was less than similarly sized ones from other producers, so you should except some differences. First, the temp gauge is an old fashioned thermometer inside the unit, so no digital display. Second, there are no adjustments in temp, so it essentially runs according to presets. Everything else so far is comparable. It is quiet too.

Michael M. from Little Lots Farms on 11/05/2018

Perfect cooler to keep under our sushi bar. Two shelves to hold enough food on line without allowing the kitchen staff to overfill the unit. It holds temperature well.
