With so many to choose from there are several key features that are worth considering to make sure you get just the right glass top freezer. The first is obviously the overall size of the freezer. Be sure to measure the width and depth of the area where you would like your new glass top freezer to be placed. Also, look at where the air vents are placed on the unit. The air vents indicate where the circulation is most important. You will want to give about six inches of clearance on the entire side on which the vent is located. The vent is important for removing hot air from the compressor motor, and blocking it means the unit will work too hard and may break down.
The second major feature to consider is which style of glass top you prefer. The three major types of glass top freezers are flat, angled and curved. Each have the own merits and potential challenges, so it is typically best to choose which style you like best and which style you think will work best for your establishment. It is also important to take into account the holding temperature of any potential glass top freezer you are considering. Different frozen products need to be kept at different temperatures, so be sure that the glass top freezer will hold at a temperature that is appropriate for the products you wish to store in it.
