How commercial refrigeration appliances differ from domestic refrigeration appliances?by Amili R. SEO
If I ask you about the most important invention in the history of food, what would be your answer? There could be numerous answers to this question such as microwave cooking, induction cooktops, liquid petroleum gas etc. But do you know refrigeration has been found the most important invention in the history of food. Yes, refrigeration is far older than the invention of home refrigerator. The Chinese cut and stored ice as far back as 1,000 B.C. Later on, natural ice was harvested and shipped around.
Today, when nearly every home has a refrigerator, we hardly think how important role it plays in enhancing our lives. Generally, there are two types of refrigeration – Commercial refrigeration and domestic refrigeration. Commercial refrigeration is typically used for food service businesses such as restaurants, hotels, coffee shops, ice cream parlors etc., whereas domestic refrigeration appliances include fridges and chillers.
When it comes to differentiate between these two segments, commercial refrigeration appliances tend to have more storage compared to their counterparts. This is why commercial refrigeration is more expensive than domestic appliances and provides much better value for money because of their extended operating life and efficiency.
Another distinguishing feature of commercial appliances is the environment in which they are used. For example, if you store your cakes and ice creams in a domestic fridge, they will not be visible to your customers which further impact your marketing objectives. On the other hand, a commercial fridge would allow you to keep your food fresh, chilled, and most importantly visible to your customers to check. It is definitely a wonderful way of storing your food safely.
Now it comes to cooling efficiency which puts commercial refrigeration appliances much ahead of domestic appliances. Commercial appliances keep the food at much lower temperatures to meet strict health and safety regulations whereas domestic appliances are designed for home use only.
If you run a restaurant or a coffee shop, commercial refrigeration is much like an investment that you make to ensure superior quality food to your customers. That’s why it becomes important for people to invest in right kind of appliances.
As every business is unique in itself, there should be a dedicated research to be done before choosing a company specializing in commercial appliances. To achieve new heights of success for your business, choosing right equipment is as important as serving your customers. In a country like India where summer months are longer compared to winters, refrigeration plays a crucial role for both households as well as businesses.
