    Dirty Refrigerators

    This Delfield prep table has drawers that hold the food. Once we pull the drawers and the drawer racks for service, we get to see all the leftovers...




    Here is a Delfield undercounter cooler. Sucks air up the condenser fan grill and blows it out the condenser coil. So the condenser is always clean, and the fan grill is always dirty. At this point, I usually just throw the fan grill in the trash.




    Here is a custom undercounter prep table with a Heatcraft evaporator. Not looking pretty...

    Looks about right. I'm suprised the fan guard isn't broken and the fan covered in plastic wrap.

    I still have never seen a clean prep table unless it was less than a year old

    could have fooled me.... Looks like the evaporators and fan covers are holding all the food. The draws are just there to cover them up.

    Those delfields are the worst. Crappy coils, cheap construction and over all p.i.t.a. ..... at a big name national restaurant chain I used to do there were custom coolers with heatcraft evaps mounted behind the drawers. What a pain in the arse to get to these evaps. The drawer frames weighed a ton, screws typically rusted away to nothing. Seals broken. Junk

    That's how applebees is here. It's fun trying to find no name drawer hardware on custom equipment, or to get to half of the piping and electrical when the two prep tables are mounted back to back and welded together.

    As far as behind the drawars prep table coolers the food that you will eat never comes into contact with any of that. Unfortunately due to equipment design the units have to be torn down further than kitchen staff is qualified to do for proper cleaning.

    It's a fine line between my love for pizza and wings, and my dislike for cooking and washing dishes. I still go out to eat!

    Scrape up the leftovers in the first pic for a zesty mystery mash! Nasty.
