A commercial glass froster is sometimes referred to as a mug chiller, glass chiller, or mug froster. Whatever you call it, one thing is constant: commercial glass frosters provide a way for you to make an impression on your customers to build a loyal client base.
This piece of foodservice equipment is a type of refrigerator specifically designed for your glassware. Serving drinks on a frosted mug or glass maintains its coldness for longer, not to mention improves the visual appearance of the drink due to the resulting frost on the glass.
Commercial glass frosters have a stainless steel top and lids that you can slide or flip open to access the glasses. There are also small upright units that come with glass doors if you want the added benefit of instant visibility and added visual appeal.
Depending on your decor, you can choose between a classic stainless steel cabinet or a black vinyl laminate exterior. Both are very durable and well-made, so you won't have to worry about longevity whichever you pick. Stainless steel construction might have an edge though as it doesn't easily rust or scratch. Laminate won't need constant cleaning as it won't easily show scratches or smudges.
Commercial glass frosters come in a wide range of capacities to support all scales of operations. Smaller single section units can refrigerate just a shy of 100 glasses. Larger versions double or triple that capacity. And despite the name, glass frosters can also be used to chill plates.
You can get underbar models to maximize the space behind your bar. There are also low-profile units with no finished top for those looking to install their commercial glass frosters below a bar top. If you want added mobility for the benefit of portability and easy cleaning, there are units mounted on heavy-duty casters.
