But, it’s upright freezers where Crosbys really specialise - take a look below to find out more about our products

What is an upright freezer?

Upright freezers are the perfect way of saving space and storing food and produce in your kitchen. Rather than stocking foods horizontally the upright nature of the freezer allows foods to be stacked vertically. The many compartments inside allow different foodstuffs to be organised separately, reducing the chance of contamination, while allowing easier external access for staff who work in the kitchen. An upright commercial freezer is very similar to the refrigerators we have in our homes, although they possess other commercial qualities which allow you to more closely monitor the temperature of the freezer temperature. 

Whether you run a cosy, intimate restaurant, looking to store a small amount of produce, or you’re from a large business that requires plenty of storage space, then we’ll certainly be able to provide something that works for you, your budget, and your commercial refrigeration requirements. Choose from a selection of brands, and single or double door options, plus doors with display units and temperature control gauges, to allow for perfect food preparation solutions.

Many of the upright freezers available at Crosbys are fitted with lockable doors that provide an increased level of security to your stock. You may be thinking “who is actually going to steal the food from my kitchen?”, but you’d be surprised how often it occurs. With the value of meats and other food constantly on the rise, protecting your stock with lockable doors is a wise decision.

What products are available?

There are a wide range of upright freezers available at Crosbys; each one possessing its own attributes and unique features that should help you decide the best product for your business. Whether it’s temperature control, a whole load of space, lockable doors, or easy organisation, there are a plethora of products to suit your requirements. Choose your upright freezer from a multitude of reputable brands who specialise in exceptional products designed for the commercial refrigeration industry. Here’s just a few of the best upright freezer products to help you decide the best freezer for your business.

·         Polar Heavy Duty Door Single Freezer

The Polar Heavy Duty Door Single Freezer is one of the most popular products in the business, and a go-to refrigeration solution for many busy restaurants. Capable of storing around 650 litres of storage space, this upright freezer is perfect for kitchens where large volumes of storage, and easy organisation, are essential.

In addition to the wealth of storage space the heavy duty stainless steel finish of the freezer, coupled with the 70mm of magnetic insulation, provides a confined space with plenty of circulation. This allows your frozen food to remain free from contamination and kept fresh for as long as possible, without the threat of other food odours or outside factors affecting your produce. Furthermore, the upright freezer comes with an easy-to-use digital control that allows you to change the in-freezer temperature. It also provides an automatic defrost option for a quick turnaround, when required.

The internal composition of the freezer is made up of removable shelves. These give you more control over how the contents are organised, for instance into different food groups or meats, and is a valued feature of the upright freezer - that you won’t find in chest freezer models.

·         Polar Display Freezer with Light Box 412 litre

Here’s another quality upright freezer product from Polar; a leading brand in the commercial refrigeration industry. This freezer has slightly different attributes to the heavy duty freezer we covered earlier. It comes with a transparent glass-front display door that allows you to see which products are located where - without having to open the door itself.

With a slightly smaller storage space than its predecessor (412 litres), the display freezer features ten removal shelves which allow you to organise the contents more flexibly. Fitted with an LED lighting display and an illuminated display board, the display freezer allows for easy access and temperature control. This upright freezer is much more compact than other models, allowing it to fit easily in the corner of your restaurant kitchen or your bar. This polar display freezer provides the perfect middle ground for your commercial refrigeration needs.

·         Polar Display Freezer with Light Box 920 litre

This 920 litre upright freezer, from Polar, combines an enormous volume of storage space with other useful features, including temperature control and ease of access. Its two transparent doors and many internal shelves allow you easily find and organise the contents. This sort of freezer is perfect for a large restaurant looking to store and compartmentalise a range of different food products.

There are many other upright freezer products of this capacity, albeit few others feature LED light display doors. Some models are designed for upright durability and heavy duty protection, with robust, stainless steel doors and locks, magnified thermometer installation, and exceptional air circulation quality. If you haven’t found the upright freezer suitable for you then you should certainly visit our online store at Crosbys to discover more of the products, brands and specifications available.

What are the benefits of an upright Freezer?

There are many different benefits of an upright freezer, when we’re comparing it to something like your standard chest freezer. First things first, a chest freezer can often be susceptible to unwanted ice accumulation, and less flexible in terms of how you can organise its contents. Where a chest freezer comes in handy though, is when it’s filled with a high volume of the same product. However, we understand that most restaurateurs look for something a little different, and that product organisation can be important when purchasing a freezer.

Upright Freezers allow for increased organisation and ease of access, because of the numerous removable shelving systems that many come equipped with. An upright freezer allows you to separate your food and drinks into specific categories and keep the likes of meats or dairies away from each other - avoiding potential bacteriological contamination. Furthermore, another immediate benefit of this feature is increased air circulation around the freezer. This is essential for keeping your groceries fresher for longer, thus providing your customers with a better product further down the line.

Another benefit of the upright freezer is the space aspect. Although upright freezers can be purchased in many different sizes, they are renowned for their increased space and storage attributes, and fit easily into the corner of your commercial kitchen or under a counter.

Most upright freezers from Crosbys also feature a digital temperature control that allows you to change the temperature accordingly, improving the economic and eco-friendly nature of your freezers. Whether you have a freezer brimming with excess stock, or just a few small items, this temperature gauge is perfect for saving electricity. Furthermore, the lockable insulated doors of the freezer provide magnetised insulation technology that ensures no energy is lost through the ventilation holes.

Are upright freezers economically friendly?

The best upright freezers and commercial refrigeration products are the ones that store the most energy and product with the smallest expense. This is achieved by allowing product users to alter the performance of their freezer in accordance with their needs. This can be managed by allowing users to reduce the temperature, turn off LED lights when not necessary, and make the most of lockable freezer doors that provide insulation and air circulation free from contamination.

Regular service checks of your upright freezer can ensure the appliance operates safely and consistently, in a manner that provides the most efficient performance without energy wastage –this will go a long way to helping you reduce those monthly overheads. If your upright freezer is buzzing or omitting unpleasant odours, however, it could mean there’s a problem with the internal function. The regular servicing of all your equipment is not only a food safety requirement, but the only way to guarantee continued optimum performance, and the longevity of the goods you stock.

Which businesses can benefit from an upright freezer?

Crosbys pride themselves on supplying the catering and restaurant industry with high-quality commercial refrigeration products. These goods are not only fit for purpose purchases, but also provide cost-effective, reliable solutions for work carried out by both the front-of-house and back-of house-staff. If you’re a manager of a bar, café, or busy restaurant it’s imperative that you have all the adequate equipment required to effectively store your perishable food stocks. With regular cleaning, they also create a lovely, enticing aesthetic for displaying your bottled drinks.

There are many health and safety guidelines when it comes to the effective storage of your food. These include the foodstuffs you can store together and, more importantly, those that you can’t. For instance, storing meat products alongside dairy can cause bacteria to form, and contamination to occur, if this is not done correctly.

It would be a PR disaster for your business if one of your customers were to get ill due to simple, avoidable failure in your refrigeration methods. Commercial refrigeration isn’t something limited to catering or restaurant establishments however - it can be an essential element of a whole range of other businesses that employ hungry staff.

Visit the Crosbys online store today to find the perfect upright freezer for your business. Available in a selection of different storage capacities and sizes, there’s upright freezers and commercial refrigeration supplies perfect for any business. Whether it’s an LED display freezer you require or something a little heavier duty for larger product stores then we guarantee there’s a product suitable for your business.
