The Importance of Gaskets

Walk-in Cooler Door Gaskets
Every refrigerator or freezer, including walk-in units, has gaskets on their doors. These parts ensure your system is running efficiently, prevent food spoilage, and keeps the door completely closed.

Gaskets are an essential part of the entire unit. These parts provide an air-tight seal around the door to ensure that that air does not escape. Without them, the motor in your system would be working overtime to keep the temperature up. Even a slightly damaged gasket can cause problems, as it may increase the temperature. Loss of food, as well as a lower score on a restaurant inspection,  can be devastating for any business, especially smaller ones.

It is crucial that you always keep an eye on your gaskets, as even worn-down gaskets can be devastating for your cooler or freezer. They tend to break through normal wear and tear or when they are not cleaned regularly.

Count on the team at O-Reps when you need new gaskets. Our business is proud to offer high-end walk-in cooler door gaskets, as well as options for your walk-in freezer. Order as soon as you notice any problems and we will get it out to you as quickly as possible. Same-day shipping is available for specific selections.

The Right Lightbulbs for Your Coolers and Freezers

Seasoning Your Charbroiler Grill Grates

Commercial Kitchen Parts
Have you replaced the grates on your charbroiler? Did you invest in a new charbroiler? It is essential that you season your grill grates before use. Follow these directions to season your grates:

  • Oil Your Grates – The first thing you want to do once you have installed your new grates is oil them. You should use high-heat cooking oil; peanut or canola oil will do just fine. Wipe down all of the surfaces to ensure that the grates have been covered. Make sure that the grates have been coated evenly and wipe off any excess oil.
  • Turn Your Grill On – Once oiled, you want to turn your grill on and heat it up for approximately 15 minutes. During this time, the oil will start smoking and burn off. If the oil has stopped smoking, then you can turn your grill off and let it cool.
  • Oil Every Day – If you use your charbroiler regularly, you want to make sure that you oil it every day. It will ensure that your grill grates will work correctly every time and have a consistent cooking temperature.

Are you in need of new charbroiler grill grates? O-Reps, your online source for commercial kitchen parts, is proud to provide you with a wide selection of options.

Invest in a Commercial Refrigerator

Commercial Refrigerator Parts
Building a new business or investing in your current business means making sure you purchase the right appliances for your needs. If you are running an establishment that sells food of any type, you should invest in a commercial refrigerator.

The most important reason why you should invest in a commercial refrigerator is to ensure that you have enough room to store your food at all times. It does not matter if you run a restaurant, a deli, or a small coffee shop, having larger refrigerators on hand means you always have a place to store food that has not been sold that day. These refrigerators are built to work harder and more efficiently than standard refrigerators, so you can rest assured that your food will be appropriately cooled at all times. It does not matter if you have a standard refrigerator with doors or are interested in a walk-in unit, making the purchase is a wise investment.

Once you have purchased a new refrigerator unit, you can count on the team at O-Reps to provide you with quality commercial refrigerator parts. We have everything you need, including gaskets, latches, thermostats, and shelves. Take a look at the selections we have and place an order online today.
