Choosing a meat cutting counter: things to know | ISA

Among the equipments to buy, for those who need to furnish a grocery store, deli, or delicatessen corner, there is the refrigerated counter for meat, cured meats and fresh products. Is it better to opt for a used counter or take advantage of a custom design service? Before answering this question, it is essential to clarify what are the store necessities and take stock of the features that characterize the most innovative refrigerated counters. Not investing in the purchase of a good meat counter is not the right solution to save money: let’s see why.

Meat and fresh products counter: quality first

The budget for setting up a mini market or a deli depends first and foremost on the square footage at our disposal and on the volume of business. Investing in the right equipment is very important, especially when it comes to refrigeration technology. Choosing a served counter for meat, cured meats and dairy products is not like buying a stock of shelves: unlike simple displays, in fact, refrigerated counters must respect precise requirements from a technical point of view. The refrigeration system must be in line with environmental sustainability regulations and employ an appropriate refrigerant. An outdated counter, moreover, may be inefficient in terms of consumption, unlike the latest generation equipments, that are advantageous from the point of view of climate class and equipment.

In addition, the features to take into consideration when choosing a ventilated refrigeration counter include the defrost mode and the potential humidity control. These functions allow a better conservation of the product, which, as a consequence, keeps its organoleptic characteristics longer, even with prolonged exposure. In addition to the climate class (with possible energy-saving function), the refrigerant type and the compressor and defrosting type, another element that should not be forgotten is the power supply, which can be available in plug-in version or prepared for remote unit.
