"Great size! True to description. We like the fact that it has a lock system set in place. Runs efficiently! I have owned it for a few months."
The bottom mounted design of the 1/5 hp compressor not only draws in cooler air for energy efficiency, but also raises the bottom shelf, so you don’t have to bend as much during loading and unloading. It circulates eco-friendly R290 refrigerant. This specialized refrigerant has an ozone depletion potential (ODP) of 0 and a global warming potential (GWP) of 3, making it an environmentally-responsible choice for your business. Also, this unit has an automatic defrost cycle, so your staff doesn’t need to spend valuable time clearing out ice.
These adjustable shelves are coated with plastic to help keep out moisture and resist corrosion and rusting. Each unit comes with 3 shelves and 12 shelf clips, allowing you to place your shelves exactly where you need them to accommodate your small or large food products.
Digital Temperature Control
The unit's digital temperature control allows you to easily adjust the temperature of your refrigerator's cabinet within its 33 to 40 degree Fahrenheit range, while the clear LCD readout also helps keep track of the unit’s temperature. Plus, the unit will automatically defrost to keep food fresh and properly chilled.
In order to keep your foods more secure overnight and after business hours, this unit features a door lock.
This door is self-closing with a stay-open feature, giving your staff the ability to more quickly and easily load your refrigerator when you get a delivery.
Does Avantco warrant this item for use in a food truck?
Avantco warrants new equipment sold to food truck customers to be operational for a period of 30 days from the date of delivery if installed and maintained correctly.
How do I correctly install the shelves into this unit?
To promote proper air flow through your Avantco unit, please ensure that the wire ledges on the shelves are positioned toward the back of the unit. These ledges help keep enough space between your product and the back wall so that cold air can adequately circulate through the cabinet. Incorrectly installing the shelf ledges can restrict airflow, causing the temperature in the bottom of your unit to rise.
I haven’t heard of R-290, R-600a, R-513a, or R-448A refrigerant before. What is it?
R-290 (also known as high purity propane or CARE 40) and R-600a (also known as refrigerant grade Isobutane or CARE 10) are hydrocarbon refrigerants. R513a (also known as Opteon XP10) and R-448A (also known as Solstice N40) are HFO (hydrofluoroolefin) refrigerants. They are being used as an eco-friendly refrigerant by some manufacturers in response to the EPA’s Significant New Alternatives Policy (SNAP) Program. Read more about this program in our blog post on Refrigerant Regulations.

Due to the height of this item, it may not be able to fit through a standard 80" tall doorway when standing upright. Please consider the best means of entry before purchasing, or measure your entryway to ensure that you will be able to bring your order inside if the item cannot be carried on its side.

So far, a decent refrigerator. Sleek looking, sturdy, and at a decent price. We really appreciate the slim depth design. Unfortunately, the factory packing design is so terrible it makes us regret our decision. For one, it came completely encased in wood, with the casters locked into the boards. There was no screws or nail-heads, so the only way to dissasamble the boards are to pry it off. The boards are also bolted to the unit itself. Unfortunately, the employee who was working in the factory completely ignored the faulty solder job on one of the interior nuts that one of the bolts was on. It came barely on, but could not be removed. After two hours of work, we were able to cut break apart the wood, but still leaving the bolt there. The brand new machine was taken apart, only to find that in order to access the Read More

the best refrigerator in the game! Whether you’re storing meat, seafood, salad, or ingredients for your most popular recipes, the Avantco A-19R-HC is perfect for your small restaurant, cafe, or bakery. This unit has a spacious cabinet with multiple adjustable shelves, but it's still small enough to fit in places where larger units would not.
Refrigerator came packed very difficult to un pack. the casters where bolted to wood....need help unless unless you lay the unit on its side, which is not good. The digital controller is not good. goes from cold to defrost and hard to see exactly what you are doing. Gets cold the warm try to use digital controller hard to use.....mine worked off and on for 2 yrs til it stopped getting cold. Appliance company comes out for 220 dollars and tell me refrigerant is low. No taps on machine, have to cut in taps, drain refrigerant that is flammable and replace. Customer service says cant do a thing. Be careful with this refrigerator .

We have not had any issues with the refrigerator. We use it to store extra milks and breads, and have no issues! Lots of room and stays a consistent temperature.
Does not keep temperature. Its set at 38.7, it goes all the way up to 46 sometimes before the compressor kicks on. The ambient room temperature is normally below 70 with plenty of room for ventilation. I called after a week and a week later, im still waiting to hear back from Webstaurantstore about the tech that they are supposed to schedule to come fix this.

Received this today, and its completely unusable. The compressor has to constantly run because the temperature goes from 38, to 44 within 5-10 minutes.
The compressor is also making a ridiculously loud sound when running.
Will be requesting a full refund in the morning. We would be better off with a residential fridge.

This fridge is wildly inconsistent and constantly needs upkeep and maintenance. It has massive temperature swings +30 degrees at any given moment. Typically I will have to remove everything from the fridge and unplug it for several hours or 24 hours. It has never lasted more than 4 to 5 days in a row working.

The compressor does not run often enough, causing huge temperature swings. Internal temp will hover at 45-50 before starting cooling cycle, and it takes a long time to cool down. Digital thermometer reads incorrectly, saying temp is 38 when it is really 42. This fridge would have caused us to fail our health inspection if it wasn't just holding produce.
Thank you for your review, Lauren! We are sorry this Avantco A-19R-HC 29 inch Solid Door Reach-In Refrigerator has not worked well for you. A Customer Solutions Representative will contact you soon!
After careful upkeep (good clearance from walls and other units, and monthly coil maintenance) in a temperature controlled commercial kitchen, this fridge failed after 15 months. It is now leaking refrigerant inside the system AND has busted evaporator coil. $500 for the parts I now need (to which I said to Avantco - NO THANKS!!) , and nearly $500.00 spent already in diagnostics. $300 to safely dispose of it now too. Nothing this expensive should fail after this amount of time. I will never buy Avantco again.

We have a few of these. Some of the components need to be tightened over time as it will rattle when kicks on, but they are solid and worth the cheap cost. Warranty on compressor is great.
This was my first major purchase for my new business, and I've been happy so far. It was a bit of a pain to release it from the packaging. But I was able to plan for it given the other reviews that I read.
Purchase this online on 7/29/2019. It was delivered in August 2019. IT stopped cooling last week. The compressor is bad and company won't repair because they say it is out out warrant. How is it out of warranty when it has only been 12 months. I would give it negative stars if I could.

When we purchased this fridge in 2017 it worked fine, like you'd expect. Fast forward just a measly three years and the fridge leaked refrigerant. We spent $500 repairing that and now the compressor is out, which will cost another $500 in labor to replace. The compressor itself is covered under warranty, but a business should not have to spend this much money repairing a 3 year old refrigerator that cost about the same to purchase new. It is possible that this is a one-off, but based on our experience, we do NOT recommend this refrigerator

This cooler has worked great for us. The perfect size, my only complaint is the door can be hard to re-open if it closes and you need right back in there.
A perfect sized fridge for small businesses! It is great for storing cakes and ingredients, I love that you can remove shelves to make room for storing multi-tiered cakes!
Awesome! Automatic temperature control and easy to clean. Just plug it in. Easy to move and operate. Save yourself money and buy this as this works as good as the more expensive ones. Highly recommend!!
Nice small standup refrigerator works as planned only issue we are having is the seal on the door it’s so tight but when you go to open the door the entire color moves even with the wheels like the light inside is Not very bright I do wish I would’ve got the one with the LED light inside other than that works as to be expected
I love Avantco! It holds temp, rolls out for easy cleaning up, and I have plenty of space for all my supplies for my little shop!
The Avantco Solid Door Reach In Refigerator is so fabulous! The look is industrial, and it looks great! I cannot believe the space in there! We can fit so many essential items in there, and it's easy to locate them and keep them organized! This was a great asset to us!
Super roomy reach in refrigerator. I love it and it keeps food really cold. I personally like to take the shelves out of it and replace them with the speed rack style shelving!
Nice, space saving design for our small food prep area. This fridge is VERY unstable. Our fridge leans away from the wall and tips forward when the door is pulled open.

i like the refrigerator. but it is very loud. if you have a small kitchen this will store everything you need. i also like the digital thermometer .
The epoxy shelves are really nice looking and easy to clean. I like the easy to read thermostat on the front and easy on off switch.
Easy to clean the inside. Outside is not as easy to clean. Digital temp is a nice feature. I wish it came with one more shelf.
Ordered this for a client, came in well packed and not dented. We had to wait to install as the remodel wasn't finished but wanted the equipment before we were finished in case something happened. Start up went great and the owner likes this product. Has been in use in a Classroom for close to a year now.
Great size! True to description. We like the fact that it has a lock system set in place. Runs efficiently! I have owned it for a few months.
Not a big fan of this for one reason in particular. The suction to open the door is quite difficult to open. Its a hit or miss. Can be a bit embarrassing in front of customers when you attempt to open it and you don't look "strong" enough. Some times we wait, other times we have to hold the entire unit still to pull the door open.
Thank you for your feedback! We’re sorry you did not prefer this product. For recommendations, please contact our Customer Solutions team.
I enjoy this product because it a perfect fit for the small preparation area i own. It allows me to store all my merchandise and keep it fresh.
This refrigerator has worked great. Our food stays at the proper temperatures and the food print of the unit is quite small. Definitely worth the price.
Very good refrigerator , big enough to fit many items, same time its slim, very nice i love it , key to lock it is great too..
Great refrigerator. Fits into our space perfectly, looks very professional, gages work very well, runs ice cold, enjoy the interior light and large casters. would highly recommend.
