When you think of a chest freezer, a box type of commercial refrigeration equipment comes to mind. Although this is mostly true, these units are available in various sizes and designs. In addition, they can be used by different people or establishments.
Chest freezers are popular with homeowners who have to serve many family members. They should have enough freezing space to store meat, poultry, and other frozen foods. This space is essential, especially when sales of meat in bulk are made at certain times of the year and families want to benefit from the discount. For home use, smaller units such as the 192, 194 or 197 liter options would be more appropriate. Also, the design should be aesthetically pleasing. Chest freezers with granite countertops blend seamlessly into a homely kitchen setting. It looks beautiful and like it is meant to be a part of the kitchen. They are also available with a white or gray exterior. Depending on the size of your kitchen, there are different sizes of units that will perfectly fit your kitchen space.
In commercial establishments such as restaurants, hospitals and hotels, chest freezers need to be strong and durable to withstand the busy environment. They also need to be larger to store more meat, chicken, and food. Commercials generally need to cater to large numbers of people, so they must ensure that chest freezers are sufficiently stocked to cope with demand. For this purpose, 520-liter and 570-liter options are available. Aesthetics are also important in the restaurant industry, so having the choice between standard and granite countertops or white and gray exterior is a bonus.
Cafes may require a bit more when it comes to chest freezers because they sell more tempting treats such as ice cream or other frozen treats. These treats must remain frozen, but must also be on display for customers to see. For this purpose, a chest freezer with a glass lid is ideal, as customers can view the contents before opening the catering equipment. They can see the full range of ice creams and decide which one they want to buy. Basically, the cafe owner wants to attract the customer with the colors of the ice cream wrappers.
Chest freezers can be used to freeze meat, poultry, fish, vegetables, and fruits for homeowners and restaurants, while they can also be used to keep frozen ice cream, ice lollies, and raw cakes for cafes or food retailers. These items are essential in the hotel industry.
