A walk-in freezer is an important piece of equipment for any business selling or storing frozen food products.
Walk-in freezers allow staff to walk in and grab temperature-controlled foods for prep, sale or heating, with working HACCP compliance and food safety strategies. Using a walk-in freezer is how chefs and other foodservice pros prevent food from spoiling - it's stockpiled for eventual use. A smaller freezer can keep a bit of inventory cold, but the walk-in freezer accommodates the amount of storage the business needs and changes how employees access the food inventories.

Considerations for Walk-In Freezers When you're buying a walk-in freezer, think about the controls and features that will best help your business thrive. Do you need multiple zones or temperature displays? It's also important to envision how inventory will be stored, whether it's boxes, bags, buckets, or trays, or any combination of those containers. What will the shelves look like? Will your teams be using a FIFO (first-in, first-out) or LIFO (last-in, first-out) approach? These are key questions when evaluating walk-in freezer models for your kitchen.
