    Avantco is crud.. BevAir not much better.

    Commercial kitchen refrigeration equipment. BAH, humbug.

    F&B director bought two Avantco prep stations. Both were problems from the start. DeSuperheat coil rotted out in the condensate tray on one and the other cam factory procided with a leaky condenser coil.

    He also bought some BevAir units with R290 that don't seem to have much capacity for cooling! Had one out of the box with a bad compressor and one that hand a bad digital control. BAH..

    So; what can I recommend to them for reasonably capable and dependable prep stations? Kinda middle of the road equipment...

    I work on trues, bev airs, delfields, turboairs, and traulsen on a regular basis, and a lot of it is warranty work. I prefer trues and traulsens, and out of all those I do traulsen warranties the least, which probably says something. Leaders are pretty much useless, advantco is worse.

    I’ve been doing a lot of Avantco warranty lately.... total junk. Turbo Air is on the same level. Continental, True, Victory and Bev-Air are mid level units. I prefer Delfield equipment myself. There’s a manufacturer that’s escaping me right now, based out of Florida I think, that has always impressed me though I see very few of them.

    I would put Hoshizaki coolers and freezers right at the top of my list if their warranty guidelines weren’t total BS.

    I forgot about them. They may actually be the worst brand out there.
