Customer Q&AAsk a Question

How do I know if this unit will fit under or match the height of my ADA-Height counter?
Many manufacturers offer their refrigeration equipment in several different height options to best meet your needs. Here's a breakdown of how we classify these different heights:

Counter Height: Work surface is more than 34" high; standard height unit.

ADA Height: Work surface height is 34" or less; complies with ADA regulations.

Low Profile: Work surface height is less than 32"; designed to fit under most ADA-height counters.

If the unit you are purchasing does not have a flat top, such as a worktop or sandwich/salad prep table, it may affect whether or not it will align with certain countertops. To ensure that the product will meet your needs, please reference the product's literature and specifications.
Can this prep table fit through a narrow doorway or hallway?
Avantco prep tables have an easily removable cutting board for your convenience. This makes for easy cleaning and for helping fit through narrow spaces. After removing the cutting board from the Avantco prep table the standard tops are 29 3/8" deep, the mega tops are 33 13/16" deep, and the pizza prep tables are 31 1/2" deep.
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.
Are there any temperature specifications to keep in mind when installing this Avantco prep table?
This unit has a maximum ambient temperature rating of 90 degrees Fahrenheit.
What kinds of pans can I use in my refrigerated prep table?
While various configurations combining traditional 1/3 size, 1/6 size, and other food pan sizes are possible, it's important to refer to your equipment's Specification Sheet and/or Owner's Manual to see what pan sizes and configurations are recommended. Certain accessories may be needed in order to use pans of a different size than what is recommended. It is also important to note that mixing and matching pans from different manufacturers may result in the pans not fitting properly.
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.
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.

I bought two Avantco prep tables, both of them stopped cooling two days apart from each other and 4 months past the warranty expired. I was happy with these coolers but clearly they aren't built to last past their warranty expiration dates. Would absolutely recommend that anybody considering buying these, rethink your choice and choose another product. NOT GOOD.

This prep table arrived within the estimate arrival time. Since our store was still under remodeling, we didn't plug it in until last week when we were ready to open business next week.. To our surprise, the temperature went up to high 70 degree F . We reset it according to the instruction but still not working. We filed a warranty claim and within 3 days they arranged a local repair service . It turned out the compressor was bad. They filed a part replacement request and we don't know when we are able to use the prep table for our new business. The manufacturer should had checked everything before they ship it out, how can they ship a bad compressor to customer. We want to return that but we guess that would be a hazard. We had purchase another work table refrigerator from the Read More

This saved our lives... ok not really but it really did. Our old one died and we saw this and thought for sure this was it. Small than our last one but holds just as much and we love it.

This has been an excellent piece of equipment! Small enough to squeeze into small space and the perfect amount of room on the bottom for back up storage.

For the first few years, this prep table worked excellent. Like a workhorse! It wasn't until the compressor started leaking, that was unfortunate but manageable with adding the freon every now and then. If you take care of it I believe it should last at minimum 7 years.

I ordered this prep fridge for my new restaurant. It was delivered secure and quick. It comes securely delivered in a wooden crate to prevent any damages. And after you take it out of the crate it is absolutely beautiful. Thank you Webstaurant!

Overall a good refrigerator, The sandwich prep area is a bit flimsy. The actual refrigerator area inside is not very deep. I thought it would be able to hold more.

Got this unit 3 dadys ago. So far, very pleased with the unit. The one drawback is the digital readout of the temperature. It is on the backside bottom. (otherwise 5 stars) Certainly not coducive to getting a quick temp check. So I bought a thermometer with a probe and attached it to the lid. Very satisfied with that, will probably buy another one.

I bought this November 2020 and had it installed in my food truck a year ago. The cabinet is now only sixty degrees. I'm disappointed if it only lasted one year. I'll update as I have more information.

Pascal M. on 01/21/2022

Thank you for your review. We're sorry to hear this prep unit has not worked out for you. We feel it is important to mention to readers that while food trucks are a popular type of food service, due to temperature fluctuation, high heat, and jostling while in transport, they are an extremely harsh environment for equipment not designed for being on the road. Generally, refrigerated pieces of equipment will not last as long on average on a food truck than they will in a typical restaurant kitchen. For recommendations on prep units better suited to your needs, please reach out to our Customer Solutions team.

This is a great tool, as long as the bottom refrigerator works well. I've had some issues with it in the past, but it is a great tool to have on had for sure, lots of storage space.

Ahmad from Muscle Maker Grill on 01/14/2022

We love this sandwich prep table. We use it to put together our burgers. Plenty of surface space and the refrigerated section is a excellent space for our condiments.

Arrived broken. 30 days later the unit is broken again. Quite frustrating. I'd recommend spending a little extra up front so you're not paying for it down the road.

Larry C. from Crepe Creation Cafe on 08/20/2019

This is our 2nd unit. The first one was good and lasted about 5 years. For the price it's perfect. Only problem with this new one was the cutting board was scratched up, but Webstaurant.com gave us credit which was awesome.

This fridge is set a very competitive price. It is the perfect size for what i needed it for and runs nicely. Would recommend buying.
