Stainless steel or anodized aluminum panels all around with powder coated frame, this is about as good of components as a refrigerator could be built with. I read a previous review about temperature fluctuations being from 40 degrees down to 32 degrees, if it was not known that this is normal, it might sound troubling. Refrigerators are designed to cool down to your desired temperature, then the cooling compressor turns off, it and is not supposed to turn back on until the inside temperatures have risen around 10 degrees, this is to avoid a system that has a compressor constantly turning on and off. Even thought the inside air temperatures may fluctuate by around 10 degrees, the actual temperature of the food items inside are not fluctuating quite that much. This is how all refrigerators function. I have a home refrigerator with a inside/outside thermometer setup, I have the outside temperature sensor on the inside of the refrigerator, and the compressor on my refrigerator regularly does not turn on until the inside temperature sensor is showing 42 degrees, and then it stays running until it cools the inside down to 32 degrees.
I bought this cooler 14 years ago. Still running strong regardless of the horrible environment it's been exposed to. It's been running outdoors in south west Florida near the Everglades so the humidity is relentless. Just starting to have some rust issues and some coil freezing. But I have never had it serviced. No matter how hot the day, it will have the coldest drinks.
We bought this for our bar/restaurant and it has served us well. It is very roomy for many selections of bottles/cans as well as plenty of storage for extra fruit and bar essentials. The only issue we had was with the hinges on the top of the unit as the edges are quite sharp and bartenders were cutting their hands as they skimmed them. I used a pair of snips to take the edge off the corners and then took a metal file to grind down a bit. That is the only design flaw, but otherwise an outstanding unit from TRUE.

While energy efficiency has always been a part of their design process, True understands that it takes much more than just reducing energy consumption to protect the environment. In fact, over the last 10 years True has reduced their water consumption by 58%, reduced TRI (Toxic Release Inventory) reported chemical releases by 83%, reduced the release of CO2 by 142,000 metric tons and recycled an incredible 98% of their scrap metal. These are the result of True’s pledge to reduce their carbon footprint and minimize the environmental impact of their products and operations, and they are just one more reason to make a True choice.
Winners of the prestigious Best in Class award from Foodservice Equipment and Suppliers Magazine for both their upright/reach-in refrigerators and prep tables for each of the last ten years, True’s reputation of building only the very best refrigeration products available is clearly much more than just an empty boast. In fact, the Best in Class awards are decided each year by a survey of both customers and experts in the industry, and for the past ten years, True’s quality and value has made them stand out as the clear leader in refrigeration. So, when you choose your next commercial refrigerator, choose quality, and choose a True refrigerator.
For True, Made in the USA is about much more than just a marketing ploy or a sticker on a cabinet. It is about product quality and creating jobs for Americans. As part of their commitment to producing high quality products that are manufactured in the USA, True manufactures every cabinet using an industry-leading combination of top quality components and materials that are designed to ensure superior cabinet performance and maximum longevity.
As part of its commitment to overall sustainability, True is pioneering the use of an advanced, CFC-free foam called Ecomate®. This innovative polyurethane foam is remarkable in that it presents zero ozone depletion potential (ODP) and zero global warming potential (GWP). Best of all, because it is foamed in place and is incredibly dense, it provides unparalleled strength, rigidity and an increase to an already industry-exceeding insulation factor.
Because True takes the time and effort that others don’t, their refrigeration systems are unlike any other in the industry. Reliable and environmentally friendly, they feature some of the industry’s coldest holding temperatures, shortest run times and lowest energy consumption. Additionally, True’s 60+ years of experience enables them to design, match and balance oversized compressors, evaporators and condensers for truly unsurpassed performance, even in the toughest conditions.
Small, dinky, plastic fans have no place in a True refrigerator. On the contrary, True uses only completely sealed, oil-filled, self-lubricating, low velocity fan motors with a long life expectancy in their refrigerators. Paired with larger fan blades, these hefty fans produce high-volume, low-velocity air flow across the evaporator for faster recovery times, uniform temperature throughout the unit and fewer problems and down time. Just one more reason to make a True choice.
Unlike almost any other refrigeration producer, True actually internally manufacturers their own heavy-duty shelves employing larger diameter steel for enhanced strength. The shelves are then bonded with powdered PVC to prevent the chipping, peeling and eventual corrosion that is common in competitors’ epoxy-coated shelves.
Every single model that is manufactured by True is extensively run tested as part of the final quality inspection before being released into inventory. In fact, every refrigerator is run tested for 4-6 hours and each freezer is tested for at least 16 hours to ensure the best possible performance and reliability from the very first day you receive it.
