Perfect for caterers, cafeterias, salad bars, buffets, and more, commercial drop-in cold pans help keep your cold food at ideal temperatures. These cold pans are designed to nestle into your existing drop-in units to create a flush, insulated design for convenient cooling of fresh veggies, fruits, and many more products that need to be kept consistently cold.
CKitchen is always on hand to help you find the right style. We’re an authorized dealer of the best drop-in unit manufacturers like Delfield, APW Wyott, Piper Products, and Wells.
Our selection of drop-in cold pans includes a broad range of styles for every environment and budget. You can choose from standard square units and curved styles that accommodate food pans of different capacities.
For the most cost-effective style, opt for an ice-cooled drop-in unit that’s portable and low-cost to operate. These units only require you to fill each well with ice to chill the products on the food pans. Commercial drop-in cold pans with a refrigeration system usually put the compressor attached to the bottom, fully hidden when set up in your facility.
If you need something that’s more heavy-duty and low-maintenance, we recommend a drop-in cold rail or pan with a self-contained refrigerated system. For permanent buffets and self-serve setups, refrigerated drop-in pans are definitely the way to go. We even have some mechanically cooled drop-in pans that use forced air to keep food cool.
Great Features for Efficiency and Performance
These days, you can count on your drop-in refrigerated cold pan to perform for longer while drawing less energy. Some styles are equipped with environmentally friendly insulation components that help ensure cold retention for longer periods of time. Most are constructed from stainless steel for extra cooling power and easy cleaning and sanitation.
At CKitchen, we’re proud to offer an incredible range of drop-in units and pans with styles ranging from affordable replacement pans to large multi-compartment drop-in well units that can hold many different foods at once. All of these products come with free shipping and guaranteed low prices!
