Walk In Freezer
A walk-in freezer provides bulk cold storage opportunities for longer-term holding than that offered by its refrigerated kin. Popular with chain locations and high-volume restaurants, walk-in freezers are perfect for operations that receive as much as several weeks' worth of frozen ingredients in single deliveries. They can also be a great fit for smaller operations and events facilities, where staff can cook, freeze, then store finished food in bulk for later retherming, enabling them to beat rush periods. However, it should be noted that the walk-in freezer is not capable of the temperature pull-down required to bring food from hot or even cold-holding temperatures to frozen. For that reason, only already-frozen foods should be put into the unit.
