Williams launches versatile, stackable refrigerated drawer unit with R290 refrigerant

Williams’ latest product is a drawer unit that maximises refrigerated storage in any kitchen where space is limited. Available as either a fridge or a freezer, the Chef’s Drawer accepts 2/1GN pans, up to 150mm deep, and offers a capacity of up to 94litres.

The Chef’s Drawer is a truly versatile refrigeration solution. It’s designed to fit perfectly with the latest prime cooking suites, such as the Falcon F900, so that the refrigerated ingredients are right where they are needed, at ‘the cook face’. Two drawers can be stacked on top of each other, to double storage in the same footprint and allow a refrigerator / freezer combination.

As you’d expect with a Williams product, the Chef’s Drawer is designed to be totally practical and tough, to stand up to life in the busiest kitchen. It’s built with stainless steel interior and exterior and can operate in ambient temperatures up to 43°C. Its drawers and fittings are removable for easy cleaning. Even the cassette refrigeration system is removable, making servicing and maintenance easy, without disturbing the kitchen operation. Low level swivel and brake castors are fitted as standard, making the drawer both totally stable and easily manoeuvrable.

Eco-friendly features include R290 refrigerant and polyurethane insulation with a low GWP and zero ODP. Williams’ adjustable CoolSmart electronic controller, which has a clear digital display, minimises energy use by monitoring and adjusting the refrigeration system, depending on demand.

The fridge version of the Chef’s Drawer can be adjusted between 1 and 4°C, while the freezer offers a temperature range of -18 to -21°C. Both versions measure 880mm wide by 850mm deep and 475mm high.

List prices for the Chef’s Drawer are £2,400 for the HWCD1 (fridge) and £2,700 for the LWCD1 (freezer) model.

Williams Refrigeration offers a comprehensive range of commercial refrigeration including gastronorm cabinets and counters, specialist bakery equipment, coldrooms, merchandisers and blast chillers.
