Sleek and Strong Design

This refrigerated unit is designed for outstanding durability to ensure that it withstands tough, busy kitchen environments with ease. It features a 430 type stainless steel exterior, which provides both strength and a smooth, sleek appearance. The interior, made with 304 type stainless steel, also offers the durability necessary for heavy, regular use. For long-lasting quality assurance and peace of mind, this unit also comes with a 2 year Parts and Labor Warranty.

Integrated Backsplash

With a spacious stainless steel worktop surface for slicing, dicing, assembling, mixing, and other food prep tasks, the unit features a 3 1/2" backsplash for wall protection. It also helps prevent supplies and ingredients from slipping off the worktop and into the space between the unit and the wall.

Refrigerated Storage

The refrigerated portion is readily accessible through the two doors, which open up to two shelves to help you organize your ingredients and best utilize the spacious interior. Plus, because they each accommodate up to 90 lb., the epoxy-coated steel shelves are well equipped for holding heavy bulk ingredients, from fresh produce to sauces, glazes, and other specialty condiments and garnishes.

Environmentally-Friendly Refrigerant

This worktop refrigerator ensures optimal performance by operating with a 1/3 hp refrigeration system that 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.

Fully Insulated

The foamed-in-place polyurethane insulation helps to trap in the cold air and to prevent the ambient air from entering. This ensures that all food held in the unit remains at food safe temperatures and ready for preparation or direct service to customers!

Easy to Operate

Operation of the refrigerator is easy, thanks to its special features. Monitor it by consulting the interior wall-mounted thermometer, and use the auto-defrost feature on the pre-programmed digital controller to maintain the refrigerator in tip-top shape.

Casters Included

Keeping your facilities clean and sanitary is imperative; it doesn't have to be difficult, though. When it comes to cleaning at the end of the day, take advantage of the casters and roll the unit aside to thoroughly clean the area. This worktop refrigerator requires a 115V electrical connection for operation.

Customer Q&AAsk a Question

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

Customer Reviews


This worktop refrigerator has become an indispensable component to our back bar. perfect height for working and storing items. The refrigerator component is one of the best I've ever seen with little to no temperature fluctuation noticed even during busy times.

Karla G. from Brewing Good Coffee Company on 02/28/2022

I can't even begin to express how unimpressed I am with this machine as it's not working, and hasn't been since we plugged it in I threw a few things in it overnight when we plugged it in so there was stuff in the fridge. Came in the next morning to find everything warm and horrible smelling from being left in what felt like a sauna. The unit kicked in and everything but nothing cooled off. I won't be purchasing any Avantco products in the future.

Shawna C. from Toppings LLC on 09/26/2020

We appreciate your review, Shawna Conley. We wish this Avantco SS-WT-48R-HC 48 inch Two Door Worktop Refrigerator with 3 1/2 inch Backsplash would have worked out for you. Our Customer Solutions team will remain in contact with you about this.

Kitchen is mostly Avantco product so when I needed another fridge I didn't hesitate on another Avantco product. This fridge is 48' long with a solid SS worktop that gets abused every day. Storage is at a premium and the added storage is a blessing. Temperature remains constant and compressor is very quiet, great price too!!!!

Patrick B. from Patz Deli on 02/22/2020

The Avantco 48" two-door has met all of our needs. We are a high volume restaurant and constantly opening and closing the doors it has had no problems keeping temperature. Great price for a quality machine!

Captiva F. on 01/29/2020

This refrigerator provides a great work space. The back splash prevents things from falling over. Holds a steady temp. My only negative with the rack inside does not go all the way to the back, so some of the space is not usable unless we stack items awkwardly leaning on the back of the rack and wall

Jennifer J. from Home Sweet Home on 04/04/2019

The duel function of the refrigerator and work top has been great. It is nice having all the food right there with you but still in a proper temperature.

Andrew Y. from Maryland Zoo In Baltimore on 09/13/2018

At first we were a little skeptical of buying these Avantco fridges. We were thinking of going with the turbo air or true refrigerators, but were are glad we went with these. They are half the price of the ones we were looking at, but do the same job. The only thing we will have to see is longevity, but without that working capitol we might not even make it to see that. Nonetheless this fridge is quality and a great buy

Jonathan H. from Ramen Inochi on 05/25/2018

This is a tough little worktop! It has performed flawlessly for about a year and cleans up fabulously, it may be the best looking piece of equipment we have.

Anne J. from Shasta View Lodge on 05/02/2018

This Avantco is ok. There's a problem w/ the thermometer . Somewhere It does read the temp. correctly. The temp. always stay at 44degree and never go down even if I turn it on to low/high.

Huy V. from Che Empire, Inc. on 02/09/2018

We appreciate your review, Huy. We wish this Avantco SS-WT-48R-HC 48 inch Two Door Worktop Refrigerator with 3 1/2 inch Backsplash would have worked out for you. Our Customer Solutions team has provided you with the CSG number to talk about the issue you are having.

This fridge is a really nice investment! Expensive just like any commercial refrigeration but it is so nice to have. It stores something like 30 gallons of milk and the worktop is nice to use as a table.

David A. from The Homestead on 12/31/2017

Great additional item to our kitchen. An additional item we needed. Good quality, very happy with our purchase. We will purchase more if needed. Thank you.
