Some Basic Tips When Looking For Commercial RefrigeratorsThursday, May 06, 2010 Mary Anne Velasco
Although looking for the right commercial refrigerator for your hotel, restaurant, bar or bakery doesn't look like a tedious job, it actually entails planning and preparation. One must take note that there's a huge difference between buying a refrigerator for your home and purchasing one for your commercial establishments.
The first thing you need to focus on before heading to the equipment store is to have a fixed spot where your commercial refrigerator [http://www.katom.com/commercial-refrigeration.html] will be placed. Measure the area so you will already have an idea on the possible dimensions of the refrigerator that will fit right in your kitchen. Remember that commercial refrigerators vary in size. You wouldn't want to buy a super huge piece of restaurant equipment realizing in the end that there's actually not enough room for it in your establishment, right?
Next step is for you to decide on the different necessary features your refrigerator should have to make your store's kitchen section more functional. Spend a few minutes to inspect your kitchen. Is it a bit dark? Then, get a refrigerator that is equipped with lights. Also make sure that you have decided on which direction the refrigerator door will go upon opening it. Should it go to your left or to your right? It's your call. Use a little imagination and figure out which one is better. If you are unsure about this, I then suggest that you look for refrigerators that come with sliding doors.
As much as possible, choose a commercial refrigerator that is made from stainless steel as it is easier to clean. It is also advisable to consider a refrigerator with glass doors because it always comes in handy when finding a particular item. Since you do not need to open up the door everytime you need to check on something, you will be saving energy, too.
These are just a few important things one must consider when deciding on a particular commercial refrigerator to purchase. Hope these tips help!
