A Brief Guide to Reach-In Coolers and Freezers

No matter what kind of restaurant you’re running, there’s a very high chance you have some kind of reach-in refrigeration. Chances are it’s the most used piece of restaurant equipment in your kitchen. If you don’t have one in your kitchen, I’ll eat my shoe. As the name suggests, a “reach-in” allows a user to reach into the unit to store or remove product. Since it’s used so frequently, it’s important to know a bit about reach-in refrigeration. Here’s some info and tips on how your reach-in refrigeration can help save you money and increase your service speed.

A walk-in cooler or freezer (or combination) is where you’re going to be storing the bulk of your product. When you get deliveries, this is where you’ll be moving them right into – that’s why they’re commonly located near the receiving door away from the prep areas.

Single door coolers and freezers are commonly located near the cooking line to allow quicker, smoother access for your chefs. This is where portioned food is stored that you plan on using during the day.

As for double and triple door reach-in refrigeration, this is where you’re going to be storing bulk prepared product as well as ingredients, sauces, dressings, etc. These coolers and freezers should be located around the prep area.

Keeping all of these units stocked throughout the week is an easy way to ensure transition from storage to prep to cooking line. Stay on top of this and you’ll have no problem during those rushes!
