Commercial undercounter freezers are the ideal addition to kitchens and prep areas where frozen storage is needed, but space is limited.

Commercial undercounter freezers fit easily under existing counters in place of cabinets, allowing you to utilize all of your prep area as best as possible. Most commercial undercounter freezers come with solid doors, but some may feature glass doors for product visibility. Standard commercial undercounter units are designed to neatly fit underneath the counter. These units are found on many kitchen lines and are the best-selling type of commercial undercounter refrigerators. They feature a large amount of interior space and compact exterior builds. Single-door units start at 27" width with about 7 cubic feet of storage space. If your business has more room for a larger unit, two and three door models are available. Two-door models start at a width of 48" with about 12 cubic feet of storage space. The largest models offered will have up to 40 cubic feet of storage space.

Commercial undercounter freezers often come with features to help streamline the prep and cook processes. Self closing doors, adjustable shelves, interior lighting, and field reversible door hinges all contribute to ease of use. We also offer a selection of NSF certified and Energy Star listed units that provide top of the line food-safe and energy cost efficient refrigeration in your commercial kitchen. Whether you're looking for a compact single section unit, or the maximum storage space possible, a commercial undercounter freezer will allow your crew to work more efficiently by reducing trips to the walk-in freezer.

It should be noted that the use of undercounter freezers as a surface for food preparation is not advisable. Although made of stainless steel, the freezers’ tops are not food-grade, which means that raw food can contaminate the surface and jeopardize the quality of your food and equipment. If you're looking for a similar commercial freezer that can be used as a prep surface, browse our wide selection of worktop freezers. Find the perfect undercounter freezer for your commercial kitchen from brands like True Refrigeration, Turbo-Air, and SEAGATE Products.

Frequently Asked Questions About Undercounter Freezers

What size freezer will fit under a countertop?

The standard height of a commercial countertop is 36”, and undercounter freezers are designed to fit under that height with the necessary clearance for airflow. The width you select will depend on the particular location where the unit will be located. There are some approximate measurements based on number of sections for undercounter freezers:

  • Single section - 26" - 37"
  • Two sections - 48" - 60"
  • Three sections - 72" - 94"
  • Four sections - 111" - 119"

What type of interior lining should I choose?

There are several options for interior materials for undercounter freezers. Each lining type has a variety of different benefits.

  • ABS - This material is advertised as resistant to dents, chips, and rust. ABS can be a great option since it's thermoformed as one piece, leaving no room to bacteria to develop in corners or edges.
  • Stainless steel - This interior material is incredibly durable and unlikely to rust. Corner covers will be necessary to fully prevent spills from getting into seams if not immediately removed.
  • Aluminum - This material is the most economical and like stainless steel, won't rust. Aluminum is often less durable than stainless steel, but units with this interior lining will often feature stainless steel floors for added durability.

How do I install an undercounter freezer?

An undercounter freezer's incredible mobility is one of its key benefits. This refrigeration unit is convenient to install in your bar, café, or restaurant thanks to its smaller profile. Many models can be set up, plugged in, and used immediately; check the spec sheet for each model to make sure no additional steps are necessary. Some even have casters that make it simple to move the refrigerator for cleaning and maintenance.

Other Refrigeration Options

Burkett has a variety of other refrigeration options available if you have different needs than undercounter freezers can offer. Reach-in freezers offer more storage, while walk-in freezers offer the most frozen food storage. Merchandiser freezers are great for showing off your product in self-serve environments. Worktop freezers are very similar to undercounter freezers, but provide their own worktop to prepare food on instead of having to go underneath a countertop.
