Vertical freezers are the unsung heroes of most commercial kitchens. Often tucked away behind the scenes, they play a critical role in keeping goods frozen and easy to access. They plug away tirelessly 24/7, 365 days a year and help you to maximise every inch of space in a busy commercial kitchen. Also known as upright freezers or stand up freezers, these appliances are practical and spacious storage solutions for any kitchen with limited floorspace and higher ceilings.
Unlike domestic models, a commercial-grade upright freezer features a powerful motor that works hard to ensure your goods stay frozen and at the right temperature, even when the door is frequently opened. They are made from high-grade materials (often stainless steel) and provide better insulation properties, making them durable enough to withstand the bumps, spills, slamming doors and other trials that come from a busy commercial kitchen. These models have easy-to-service motors (often located at the front of the unit) that free you from having the pull out the whole unit and disrupt operations during maintenance. Vertical freezers are best suited to demanding hospitality environments such as restaurants, cafes, schools and hospitals.
When it comes to selecting the perfect vertical freezer for your kitchen, there are really two main types to consider. Glass door upright freezers feature a single, double or even triple glass door configuration. The main advantage of these models is that you can see the items inside, saving time when selecting goods in fast-paced environments. The other key option is a solid door vertical freezer. Solid door models usually have sturdy stainless steel doors and often provide extra storage space within. They are great for day-to-day access or storing items in bulk.
