What is a glass chiller?
When you place chilled food on a warm plate it too gets warm, same goes for beverages. Glass chillers, sometimes referred to as glass frosters, are pieces of commercial refrigeration that allow cold food and drinks to hold their serving temperatures longer and actually cool down products. Glasses and plates are stocked directly into the units compartment, which looks a lot like a bottle cooler. These coolers make it easy for your staff to access plates and cups that are at ideal temperatures for what's being served. Glass chillers typically hold -10° to 15°F.
What capacity glass & plate chiller is right for me?
The capacity needed is dependent on your business type and level of business. The higher your level of business, the bigger capacity chiller recommended. Some chillers are specifically for glasses and mugs, while others will hold both glasses and plates and both types vary in capacity.
Which is better for my establishment, a stainless steel or vinyl coated glass chiller?
Both are great choices. Stainless steel has a clean and elegant look that is great for upscale restaurants. Vinyl coating is easy to clean, matches any décor, and under restaurant lighting is less likely to show dings and scratches, as stainless steel would be. It is also less expensive than stainless steel.
