Kolpak Refrigerators: An Introduction

Tuesday, December 21st, 2010

Perhaps the title of this post is a little misleading, since this isn’t the first time we’ll have written about Kolpak refrigerators.  What’s more, you might be interested to find out that Kolpak refrigerators actually need no introduction, since they’re world-famous (or, at least, famous within the restaurant equipment industry).  There’s one reason and one reason only for the fame and notoriety of Kolpak refrigerators: their quality.  That’s right, Kolpak refrigerators are among the best refrigerators money can buy.  We’re proud to offer them here at Short Order to you, our valued customers, at excellent rates.

(First, an aside.  In writing about Kolpak refrigerators, we’re turning our eyes ever-so-momentarily away from other wonderful products we offer, including Manitowoc ice machinesVulcan rangesFrymaster fryers, and others.  However, never fear!  Our appreciation for those manufacturers and their top-notch products hasn’t diminished a whit.  We’ll still write love letters to them on a regular basis, but we thought we’d just spread the love a little bit.)

Kolpak makes many different kinds of refrigerators, and we adore them all, but we’re particularly fond of the walk-in refrigerator models.  These include such excellent refrigerators as the Kolpak Walk-In Refrigerators, Walk-In Freezers and Walk-In Cooler P7-1010-FT-R and the Kolpak Walk-In Refrigerators, Walk-In Freezers and Walk-In Cooler P6-054-CT-R, both of which are top-notch examples of walk-in refrigeration done right.  And by “done right,” we mean with plenty of storage space, thoughtful design, and energy efficiency.

A walk-in refrigerator is crucial for any medium-to-large restaurant, as it provides a place for you to store all your food in a single, easily accessible space.  Plus, in the hot summer months, if you get a big enough model, you can put a chair in there, pour yourself a lemonade, and take a load off.  (Note: what you can do and what you should do are, obviously, not always the same thing.  Point being, Kolpak refrigerators—specifically the walk-in models—are an invaluable asset to many commercial kitchens.)

Beverage Air Refrigerators: A Cool Deal

Friday, December 17th, 2010

That’s right: We’re not above writing a post about Beverage Air refrigerators and throwing a groan-worthy pun in the title there.  We’re cool customers like that.  Seriously, though, though we don’t have a tale of recognition a la our Manitowoc ice machines sighting at our local Mexican breakfast haunt, we do have to say we’re huge fans of Beverage Air refrigerators in our own way.  You see, we’re big fans of value and efficiency, and Beverage Air refrigerators embody both of those deeply loved traits.  You’d be seriously hard-pressed to buy a better refrigerator at a lower price.  After all, Beverage Air refrigerators are industry leaders for a reason!

What’s more, at Short Order, know that any restaurant equipment you buy comes with our brilliant Low Price Guarantee.  Not that you’ll be likely to need to use it, of course—our prices are already low.  Dare we say, be-low?  As in, below zero?  As in cold as in refrigerators?  Sorry, we’re trying too hard.

Let’s take a whirlwind tour through some of our favorite Beverage Air refrigerators, shall we?  A sort of “Greatest Hits.”  Here we go:
