Williams has delivered a major new addition to its Chef’s Drawer range in the form of a variable temperature model that can be switched from a refrigerator to a freezer.
It features an entirely new body which, because it ventilates through the front, can squeeze into the tightest of spaces.
The concept behind the Chef’s Drawer is to bring robust, practical refrigerated storage right to the cook face.
An individual refrigerated drawer, it is made of stainless steel throughout and can cope with ambients as high as 43°C — making it ideal for busy commercial kitchens.
The new Chef’s Drawer, model VWCD1, it is just 670mm deep, thanks to its refrigeration system being mounted to the side, as opposed to the rear.
It can fit beside or under a standard 700mm work surface, leaving 30mm at the back to make it easy to plug in to a 13 amp supply.
“The latest Chef’s Drawer is a really versatile piece of refrigeration,” says Malcolm Harling, sales and marketing director at Williams.
“It ticks the boxes for making the most of available kitchen space, for sustainability and for multi-functionality. The ability to switch from fridge to freezer will be a big plus for many sites — it will help cope with seasonal menu changes, the need for extra chilled or frozen storage for events, and so on.”
